I have seen much death, suffering and pain the last few weeks... the hurt in those left behind. The uncertainty, the sorrow and the bottled tears.
When, in many moons to come, my time comes promise me this; hold nothing back. Mourn and cry, wail and keen in your grief, let the banshee fear that her voice has been stolen. But mingle such anguish with the laughter of old memories dusted out of closets long thought forgotten. Let the air echo with the fun tales of lessons learnt with hilarity. Remember fondly the lives that I have touched, for in them a difference i have made can be paid forward in an unending chain that echoes through eternity. And face each day with strength, secure in the knowledge that I will be waiting for you on the other side of the curtain to welcome you home.
Long may that day be in coming. For now let us fill each day with all the love, life, memories and goodness we can bring to bear, celebrating with each other along the way....remembering life is too short to waste on bad coffee.
Hightened emotion in general can lead to a low clarity of thought. Emotions can cloud the decision making process leading to some really bad spur of the moment decisions, especially if you are depressed or angry. Writing in a high state of emotion can be a source of great inspiration or the pit from which you dredge up things you wish you had never written.
About to hash out an angry email, it is worth waiting a bit to calm down. Once you click the send button there is not a lot you can do to undo the damage.
Intentionality is a trait that we can all do with a little more of. You can wait for an invitation to a party or you can decide to hold one of your own. Life is not about a passive waiting for things to occur but rather an active pursuing of things you desire.
I like writing-no secret there. I get a kick out of crafting sentences that inspire. I guess I have a love affair with the English language. There is a thrill when accosted by its written or spoken forms. So I collect articles-well written ones. The collection is small right now, but will grow with time.
My collection is not purposeless though. I use it to learn from, to get ideas on how to write better articles.
