Worth saving…

 

Confused,
she attempted to let go
of a situation she couldn’t comprehend.

Uncertain,
she pondered the reason
for her presence in his life.

Frustrated,
she questioned if what they had
was worth saving.

Relieved,
he asked her to be patient,
to give him a little more time.

Surprised,
he held on tighter
than she thought he ever would.

Elated,
she was comforted to know
he cared enough to ask her to stay.

Don’t believe them!

 

The ones who claim
to be better than the rest,
are the ones who end up
hurting us the most.
Why?
Because we
actually believe them!

Don’t fall for their
hypnotizing song and dance,
for the lies they feed us
are not fit
for human consumption.
Instead,
toss their servings of drivel
to the swine,
for we all know
they’ll eat anything!

“Hi, how are you?”

Hi.
How are you?
How was your day?
Would love to hear all about it!

This is my routine with munchkin everyday. This simple act has many uses:
a) It’s my way of hearing what went on at school (and at afterschool)
b) it keeps her engaged so she doesn’t run off down the sidewalk (little trick I learned ☺)
c) It encourages her to think about the appropriate answer for my question
d) it trains her to remember events in chronological order

Living in the fast-paced environment as New York can make us forget the simpler things in life that bring us joy. A simple “Hi, how are you?” is said without even expecting a real answer. The words just fall out of our mouths and we keep moving. And if by chance we linger just long enough to get a reply then we’re actually surprised!

I’m guilty of the aforementioned scenario and when a person opens up and really starts telling me EVERYTHING I wonder how long they’ve been waiting to have someone ask and genuinely listen.

Been feeling a little lonely lately. I miss having deep, intelligent, grownup conversations with people who actually know how to listen effectively. There are a few people with whom I communicate regularly but I keep them at arms length because something is missing. They simply don’t know how to engage in conversation that demonstrates reciprocity and at the end of it I’m either exhausted, frustrated or disgusted and have made a mental note to not do that again any time soon. So I write, read your blogs, comment, and read the comments of others. It’s the next best thing to conversation. And though it is by no means a substitute for a live, warm body with whom to chat, or to ask about their day, and to hear their recount and relish every detail, it helps to have a few ears out there in Blog Land to honestly listen.

Thanks as always for taking the time to read and comment. You are appreciated!

Hugs and best wishes,
A.

I Choose You…

Stumbled upon this song a few weeks ago as recommended by #AmazonPrime. Fell in love with it instantly, but since I have no significant other to share it with I’m sharing it with all of you. Perhaps you have a special someone to share it with. It’s way too good to keep to myself. Enjoy!
