Sorry for my lack of posts. I’ve been working a covid19 unit and have been pretty busy. I’m grateful for my crew. I will say this about covid19, this is a very real virus. When I have time I watch both the left and right use this virus for themselves, both sides are trying so hard to disprove the other, trying to make a name for themselves by being the first to point out a falsehood. Both sides are doing exactly what they accuse the other side of. Please remember there are people recovering, there are those who require more intensive care and there those who will have this virus self resolve itself. I will be writing periodically as my hours will be much longer this week. I wish you all the best stay rational, and stay well! Much love and respect to all of you!
One thing I’ve learned about fear;
Fear creates a response/reaction similar to its own seed.
Fear will cause
Paralysis = non reaction or denial to an extreme.
You can look back months from now and realize you’ve reacted solely out fear without rational thought and now your regretful for
not conversing with someone,
leaving someone alone to long,
failing to take steps that put you in the direction of you want.
I could go on but you get the point.
Fear now in this moment can cause you to feel your life is worth more than another’s life but what makes a life more valuable are any of really that much more important than the other.
The hand apart from the arm can’t function.
The housekeeper scrubbing tirelessly to keep disinfect a hospital, the check clerks and the grocery store ringing you out, the ppl who stock the shelves.
Point is fear can lead us to places of superiority but none of us can survive without the other(not well anyways). The CEO of a hospital, board members who place themselves in comfortable positions, very few will take the floors and care for those affected. These upper tiers of management wouldn’t have much If those on the frontlines weren’t their to care for others well, despite age, color, nationality, gender, beliefs or deeds. No matter how contagious someone is the ones on the top tiers will not be taking care of you, filling your baskets, sticking your shelves, delivering your food or disinfecting your walls. The most this top tier will do is demand more output from their staff, more multitasking, working harder without bonuses, without pats on the back, without raises, without thank you’s.
In ending don’t let fear cause you to mistreat someone. Treat those around you the way you’d like to be treated. What would you want someone to do for you?
Walk through your day rationally, kindly, patiently and try to understand the cashier checking you out has probably been standing at that cash register for hours, tired and just has afraid as you. The nurse, the doctor, the nurses aide is probably exhausted and is nervous about new admissions coming in, and will be pulling long hours, take a moment to just understand.
Take a moment today to breathe and reflect.
Beauty isn’t found in painted nails, colored hair,
virtual relationships that mimic what the normal is,
high end jobs,
titles or clothing trends.
Beauty is found when you show your scars,
take the hand of a stranger and help lead the way,
sit by the poor and see true richness,
being you unapologetically in a world that mimics what’s around them,
doing a good deed that doesn’t require a like button or a live stream, saying only what you mean,
taking accountability in a world that would rather pass blame,
striving to heal rather then bandaid yourself and project hurt onto another,
smiling without a camera,
stop kissing ass and selling out one another for seat with those we feel are powerful,
stop making decisions that cause you to not be yourself and blame another,
stop laying down what lives and breathes for what is an artificial existence.
If our cameras only took snap shots of our soul, of our intentions, and no longer took a picture of flesh and bone, would you still post this on social media?
Personal thoughts from my writings..
I’ve seen so many memes,
quotes and status that say, “life is to short to hold onto bitterness, grudges, hurts and angers.”
True but these are real created emotions and ignoring them will serve no purpose, ignored emotions will only cause them to resurface later.
Let’s take another look at this meme.
Life is not only to short to serve such emotions.
Life is not only to short to ignore these emotions,
life is to short to create these emotions in someone else’s life.
Life is to short for someone to serve emotions, such as self pleasure that creates
in someone’s life,
reactions that are nothing more then how someone was made to feel.
As a humanity we need to learn how to better care for one another, treat one another, creating a different reflection/reaction of self.
Ex – if I create anger in someone’s life, that anger is nothing more then a reflection of how I treated or cared for someone. That anger is a reflection of me not of themselves.
As a humanity we can do better, we can create better.
We may not all agree but we can all find a middle ground to work from.

I had written this for someone but sometimes we all need to hear this. After reading all the way through.
Read again but only the words with * next to them. Originally posted on Facebook and was unable to italicize the words…
If people choose to leave you, let them.

If people choose to discard you, let them.
People who truly
love and appreciate you
will have a clearer path.
If people lie to you, let them
force a lie to the light will fail.
That lie will be found by its own actions. Be still.
If people make you feel guilty for a well deserved reaction because of the wrong they’ve done, let them.

If people are to busy to keep a relationship going, let them go.
action will someday bear its own fruit, and they will feel all you’ve felt. So be kind but keep moving.
If people say they never meant to hurt you but hurt you anyway, let them. You see them now.
If someone doesn’t want to hurt you they simply won’t. Believe what they show you.
will help to guide you back and you will mend.
If people act careless with your emotions and heart, let them go.
Don’t hold onto someone who is willing to lose you. They’ve moved on and let go, now it
*Should be you.*
Longing to forget
You are the music I long to forget,
wrapped in every word
tangled around every string.
In the empty space you are still held.
You will awaken to the truth of words and the world be different.
The smallest of words that carry the biggest meaning will be empty, neglected and starved.
What is real will be given over to the flesh.
Your breath will be lost because you see it was never really about you
so you close your eyes so you no longer see.
The words will return to bargain
phrases that never sleep,
to lure you back into its own brokenness.
