COMES THE DAWN

After a while you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul,
And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning
And company doesn’t mean security,
And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts
And presents aren’t promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes open
With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child,
And you learn to build all your roads on today,
Because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
After a while you learn
That even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure…
That you really are strong,
And you really do have worth.
And you learn and learn.

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”

~ John Lennon ~

Intuition goes hand in hand with Decisions……….. I’m one of the biggest procrastinators because of second-guessing myself.  Usually, my first gut instinct is pretty good.  Go with  your own best conclusion on a given situation instead of looking to others and second guessing yourself.  Listening to others is one thing.  Always deferring to their way is another.

Does anyone remember the Happiness movement inspired by the Peanuts musical ~ “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” ?………………”Happiness is……….a warm puppy.”  It was such a great way to find things to be happy about.  Gratitude and Happiness are co-joined twins.  You can’t have one without the other.

*************

“Happiness” from “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown!”
