Writing as An Outlet

   Have you written down your feelings at one time or another?  It can be a very good outlet, whether you’re writing a poem or just jotting down words to express feeling.  This is another way writing can be used to help you express pent up emotions, anger….sadness…whatever it might be and you may find some relief from this! That’s the beauty of writing.

   When you feel confused, don’t know what to think or just feel confused, take a piece of paper and write down words that come to mind, it doesn’t matter what order they are in.  The important thing is just to get them out on paper, which will free up your mind to be more clear and in effect, function better.  Sometimes it is difficult to come up with exactly what you feel at one time.  Give yourself some time and see if this is helpful to you.

Happy Writing!

Have an awesome day!

Prayer–Even When I Felt Alone

Dear God,

Thank you for being with me,

even when I am lost and feel alone.

I may not know my way but you do.

Thank you for showing me the way

when I didn’t have any idea where to start.

Lord, you have blessed me with people

in my life who have offered a helping hand

when I thought I would be all alone.

I can’t thank you enough for helping me

through the rough times.

You are my only God.

Amen 

A Connection Exists!

   Just when does a connection to a person end?  You’ve shared your life with them, have favorites with them, can predict their next word….and even when you’re split up, there’s a connection and you communicate. I speak from experience, this is how I feel with my ex-boyfriend, ex-husband, ex-whatever. We raised four children together who are my step kids now ages 18-24 years old.  We fought a custody battle that cost $10,000 and never seemed to end.  I no longer see my step-children much but want the best for them just the same.

   My ex and I always communicate we are split up….kind of like soul mates. Now, don’t tell him that….cause he may not agree.  I have never had this kind of connection before….but somehow he can do worst things to me and I to him and forgiveness abounds. I call it the love of God.  God was in our relationship, marriage, divorce and when we got back together.  I am a strong believer that God brought us together and has separated us now as things got to where neither one of us loved the other and finances were too much to bear.

   I don’t believe we are meant to be together or to live together, but I do believe friendship is in the cards for us.  I have a job I really enjoy working with the elderly and he enjoys his job.

   He is able to see his kids if I am not around. (bad blood from the step family) This makes me happy and I don’t feel the need to be around.  His ex wife has kept him from seeing the kids for years, so it’s high time he sees them. I am mature enough at age 43 to understand.

    Anyway, folks it is my belief that God is in relationships, that good things are possible regardless of breakup, maybe even friendship.

   If you find yourself going through a relationship and feeling so very down, remember there is always a connection, you have shared a portion of that person’s life. Yes, there are outward emotions we see, but there are inner ones too that we don’t see and yes they are there…what they are who knows…..just don’t lose hope and focus on yourself.

Poem From Dorothy Parker

“Inventory:

“Four be the things I am wiser to know:
Idleness, sorrow, a friend, and a foe.
Four be the things I’d been better without:
Love, curiosity, freckles, and doubt.
Three be the things I shall never attain:
Envy, content, and sufficient champagne.
Three be the things I shall have till I die:
Laughter and hope and a sock in the eye.”
― Dorothy Parker, The Complete Poems of Dorothy Parker

In My Youth…

The Complete Poems of Dorothy Parker Quotes (showing 1-5 of 5)

“In youth, it was a way I had,
To do my best to please.
And change, with every passing lad
To suit his theories.

But now I know the things I know
And do the things I do,
And if you do not like me so,
To hell, my love, with you.”
― Dorothy Parker, The Complete Poems of Dorothy Parker
