Awwwww, today was a beautiful day! A day to feel the sun beaming down on your flesh. A day to see the blue skies and white clouds so bright and puffy. A day to feel a slight breeze brush across your face. A day you could have gone to the park and fed the ducks and birds. A day oh, so beautiful!
You can tell when Fall is drawing near! I hope you had a wonderful day, today!
Pray your way and be worry free. Things rarely make sense if you force them. Just be yourself, do whatever makes you happy and don’t waste your time trying to fix things out of your control. – Jeffery Facchin
I know… we all can change. – Rick Grimes (The Walking Dead)
A wise man told me this recently when I told him that I felt lost. So I took his words of wisdom into my life. I started to focus on what makes me happy, which one of the things was writing poetry. I had thought about changing what I wanted to do with my life. I changed my major to General Studies English. I felt the weight and worry lifted off of my shoulders. The stress that was holding me back just disappeared. I can have more open to my career than what I had previously.
I was not going to worry about trying my hardest to make everyone happy, but I was going to make myself happy again. That meant that I was taking more appreciation into the friendships that I currently have right now, and everything that I have in my life. I wasn’t going to try to force broken friendships to be fixed. If it was meant to be fixed than the broken friendships would be fixed.
Doing things like reading graphic novels, playing video games, and writing have changed my outlook on life. I had recently asked my folks if I could adopt a dog as a graduation gift in December. They said as long as I pay for everything for the dog. This had made my whole year. I felt more grown up because of this. I am looking forward to my dog. I will have something to look forward to when I came home from work. I have changed for the better. I take more pride in what I do.
I am going to different this week and post a sonnet I wrote. I hope you all enjoy it.
The Pancake Sonnet
Pancakes are so delicious
From blue berry to chocolate
Each can be very nutritious
Unless you haven’t ate
When I think this it makes me hungry
All I want to do is eat but I have no food
Which can make me angry
That is the current mood
Pancakes can be cooked in many ways
Blue berries, chocolate chips, buttery
The best time to eat them is at the end of the days
They can be made artistically
Pancakes are very golden
Better when hot not while colden
So I was in my poetry class tonight, and my fellow blogger, Cameron Braun, wrote a poem about money. I really liked the poem, by the way, Cameron, even if it was a little like a riddle. Anyway, it was interesting because it described something that I see every day. In his poem, Cameron was describing a one dollar bill. I couldn’t tell you what exactly the one dollar bill looks like except that it has good old George Washington’s face on it. Oh, and the ones of course. Many, many ones are part of the one dollar bill. It just made me think of all these things that I see or do every day, but that I never take time to appreciate. For instance, I’m not sure which shoe I put on first when I start my day. I know that not many people do, but it’s something so engrained in us, that we do it mechanically. I just think it’s funny how these little things become almost imperceptible in our lives. What do you think? What are somethings that you do every day, but maybe don’t notice?
