Choosing Heaven


This is from the days not so long ago, when I was too shy to take credit for my own quotes. I kept my name as small as possible. This is from the book I was going to finish the week Jack came home from surgery. He ultimately died and I was thrown a curve ball that week that changed my life. 
But I still need to finish this book. It's called "It's All About You".  



I'll be working on it after I finish Book 4 
in the Jack McAfghan Series.

Questions in a Rose-Colored World



What happens when you remove
Your rose-colored glasses
And realize that I am just
A person with imperfections
Just like everyone else?

Will you leave me then?

By leaving you first 
Am I shielding myself
From that possibility?

By leaving you first
Do I deprive myself of knowing
The answer?

Sorrow

Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.

Rite of Passage


Life is all about the experience
And the expression
Of feeling.

It keeps dishing out opportunities
To feel
Good and bad.

When that happens
We either come through
Our rite of passage,
Or we smother the opportunity,
Burying it with our chosen painkillers;
Anxiety, addiction, depression....

Push the feelings away
And maybe one day
You won't feel anything.
You can become an inanimate object.

And life will still keep dishing it out
In the hopes that one day
You will learn
What it hopes to teach you.
