I have recently spoken of a difficult and dark time in my life. These times really do have an impact on the human condition, and for me sometimes they are rather scary. A few weeks ago my state of mind was such that an impulse agreed with my sentiments, but fortunately there were too many variables to prevent any dire response. I wrote about it, thought about it, and processed it in my head, and here I am today speaking of a different perspective. I wanted to write a poem on the title but now I believe I will change up the words a bit.
I spent another week in the woods by a lake. I remember last time my thoughts were morbid, but today I return and though there still is that perpetual sadness, along with it there is also a nostalgia, an ability to appreciate the goodness in our lives, and focus upon those moments of love and giving with one another. The beauty is of course the sparkle of attraction, that driving force of the human being who believes in every aspect of the person standing in front of them, holding them, believing in them. That Grace is very difficult to let go of and in the last couple of years I have experienced such loss, but now my goal is to value the wonder of it all.
Today, I want to focus upon the goodness of love, the kindness of heart, and the fullness of our soul. These are all moments that occurred in my life, and hopefully the people I am closest. I I hope someday I might continue to reflect upon this aspect rather than tear myself down and reach points of desperation that put me in a vulnerable state of mind. Today, I am recalling the wonderful nature of sharing passion and love with one another, and for me that is more fulfilling than resolving any difference of need and want in any relationship I have ever known.
Today I want to know kindness, affection, the beauty of love, and peace of mind.
