I realized I never shared this nonfiction short work on my blogs about the experience of losing my first love my daughter. Please go to this link: Always In My Heart. In order to read my story and see how I decided not to let this loss define how I lived my life.  This may be especially helpful to those dealing with a miscarriage right now in their lives, or for anyone who ever has felt the pain of losing a child.  I urge you to read this short work to find some semblance of solace. Know that your rainbow exists, it’s just a little further down your life’s path than you expected.

Wishing you happiness!

A smile is the one universal understood all throughout the world.  It symbolizes the same meaning in any language, breaking down barriers and thawing out the chilliest personalities.  Smiles are meant to be shared and can be quite infectious.  They spread like wildfire throughout a roomful of people!

However every one of us has days when we are down in the dumps and just can’t fathom the ability to muster up even the faintest of grins.  This is when we need something or someone to rely on to help us find our spectacular smiles! This object or individual should be your go to source to bring your spirit out of the slump you may have hit and help return world to happiness once more.

My source of happiness that helps to uncover my hidden smile is my cat Kasey.  He is twelve years old and I rescued him from the ASPCA at two months old.  He is definitely a unique personality! At twelve, he is still as lively as ever! He tears through the house  chasing balls, twirling in circles attempting to capture his own tail, and head butts me in the morning insistent about getting treats.  He always seems to sense when I am upset, refusing to leave my side, and instead flops down next to me or on me twisting himself upside down and gazing up at me eyes filled with unconditional love.  It’s hard to stay sad or not smile at his cute face.  He provides the extra dose of attention my soul needs at times to make me forget my worries and bring a mile wide grin to my face.  One can’t help but smile as they listen to the contented rhythmic purring emitted from a cat.  So when life seems to get me down I always snap my fingers, and Kasey appears within seconds to curl up next to me, a warm fluffy ball of pure heaven!  Kasey helps me see that life really isn’t so bad and reminds me not to take myself too seriously! Life is short so enjoy it while you can is the message cats send.  Smile, be happy!

Daily Post Make Me Smile

I truly can say with no hesitation that I love my job! I have wanted to be a writer since I was a child, when I would write my own stories, draw the illustrations, and staple the pages together to make my own books.  It has taken me awhile to get to the point of owning my own writing company where I am my own boss, but it has been worth it.  I love having the opportunity to write about things I’m passionate about whenever I want. My writing will eventually become my legacy for generations to enjoy long after my time here is through.  Writing helps release pent up feelings both good and bad allowing me to freely express myself through words that resonate with the reader.  

Another unexpected element that has surfaced through owning my writing company is I have been able to explore various creative avenues through photography, drawing, and even creating book covers.  Some days I awake brimming with creativity that I want to share with the world! Thanks to the many social media outlets I am a member of, I can do just that!  The ability to reach a large audience with one post in amazing!  

Through my job of writing the world, I am able to observe all the beauty around us that would normally go unnoticed in the rush of a 9-5 type of job.  I truly appreciate every moment spent working on my writing and promoting it.  It is my life’s passion so everyday I look forward to the new experiences that I will encounter in my career.  I love my job and the people it allows me to meet who are traveling the same path.  These experiences are immeasurable and ones that I know I will look back with fondness on in my later years.  I followed my dream and have no regrets in my choice!

Legacy of a Lifetime
     My dears, days of sunrises draw to an end,
before breath fails me, there’s a message I must send.
     On these precious pages, exist tales you need to know,
stories recounting accomplishments, highs and lows.
     Lessons learned, mistakes made,
please listen closely, time will too soon fade.
     Read this retelling, take what it says to heart,
grant this final request, before our lives must part.
     Share the words imparted, with both young and old,
they must remember who I was, my story needs to be told!
    Dreams, hopes, wishes, discovered upon these pages,
my greatest writing masterpiece, shared repeatedly throughout the ages!
     When from this Earth I become, a mere memory,
this book will remain behind, as my lifetime legacy!

*The Daily Post prompt was to share what you would leave as your legacy.  I feel the reason I became a writer was so my legacy to future generations would be a lifetime of learning to love literature and to hopefully inspire many others to become writers and find a love for the written word as well.  This prompt really makes one think.  What would your legacy to future generations be?

Sunlight’s Lullaby

Her bent silhoutte forms shadows, tears stream from sapphire eyes.
Heavy heart seeped in grief,
laden with burdens of life, invisible to human eyes.
Golden rays twinkle, specks of fairy dust fill the air,  
a blanket woven of sunlight, encircles her frame.
Comforting touch, protecting one in need during moments of weakness,
driving away emotional vultures perched hungrily, waiting to swoop down.
They will have to quench their hunger elsewhere,
sun’s radiance has forced them into hiding.
Emulating a comforting mother’s hand,
brilliant trajectories bathe the wounded soul in brightness.
Seeking to assuage reason for this melancholy,
cradling its earth child in powerful arms of magnitude, rocking her slowly, into peaceful sleep.
As quiet sighs of contentment escape her lips,
Rays recede into the horizon, watchful for signs that they are needed below.

My BFF For Life!

I am a firm believe that we don’t just encounter people in our life randomly, they are sent to us for a purpose. This is truly the case for my best friend Jaime and myself. We met on the first day of kindergarten when we were five years old, and have been inseparable ever since! (I won’t say how long we’ve been BFF’s to protect our ageless beauty ;), but trust me its been awhile!) She is the most generous, loving, giving, person I have ever met! She doesn’t think twice about helping out another person and would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it! Over the years, our friendship has grown and blossomed making her feel more like the sister I never had, as opposed to just a friend. We have been there for each other for the good times and bad. Weddings, funerals, birthdays, holidays, you name it! The support she has shown me over the years only continues to grow. Even though we live in different states, whenever we get together, we pick up right where we left off! I feel she epitomizes the qualities of a true friend, someone who isn’t there only for the good moments in life, but for the not so good ones too! We have seen each other at our worst times and she always knows just what to say to make me feel better. I hope I do the same for her as well! She has a heart of gold, and this can be seen in how she treats her students and her pets, as well as in her treatment of other individuals. Though we have been friends for many many years, we have never once been in a fight! Honestly! We just have fun together and are there cheering each other on through life’s little and big achievements! I love her like a sister and she is truly the best friend a girl could ask for! She’s a lover of rainbows, dragonflies, and butterflies just like me. She is a dreamer, creative (you should see her paint Tweety Bird on her own nails!), and I don’t think I could ever say enough to describe the truly magnificent individual that she embodies! If you have a friend that you can always count on, that supports you, and accepts you for the person you are no matter what happens in life, treasure that person and that friendship. This is a unique, wonderful gift to find in life. If you are able to have one true, honest to goodness friend in life, never take that or them for granted! I was given a great gift the day I met my BFF, my sister for life, and I am so thankful to have her in my life!

     Juxtaposition is the depiction of two objects that seem completely out of place when placed side by side.  Here I chose this photograph of a freely growing amongst the weeds and dead leaves of late fall.  It offers a spot of hope of brightness in an otherwise muted landscape devoid of color.  A special symbol of inspiration for a world in need of something to cling to as a sign that things will get better. That’s the interpretation I get from this photograph.  What do you think the buttercup depicts here?

Me in a Nutshell

Always prepared with a smile to share,
inspiring others to forget their troubles.
Positive straight to the core, radiating brightness from deep within,
spreading joy, encircling others nearby in an invisible hug of gladness.
Optimistic reputation, initiated at birth,
exuberant, enthusiastic, primed to take on the world!
Believer in following ones heart’s desires,
chasing dreams until they’re realities!
Seeing life as moments to be treasured,
each friendship, creating a chapter to be unfolded.
Unknown future, slowly taking form,  blossoming under the sun’s radiance.
Sea of positivity, rolling carelessly,
ebbing, flowing with the universe’s natural revolutions.
Admiring nature’s artwork, displayed in the everyday,
happily sighing, thankful to be alive!

    This time of year thoughts of joy, happiness, and positivity seem to prevail more throughout our world.  But why should it only be this time of year that people feel good about themselves and spread positive vibes amongst others?  If you think about it long enough, you will realize that you can have this warm, fuzzy feeling inside of you year round.  How you ask?  By doing what makes you feel good.  Do you like to dance? Well then turn on some good dance music after a stressful day of work, and dance without a care! The release of tension and forgetting your worries even for a short time releases endorphins that make you feel fabulous!
     Don’t like dancing? How about singing your favorite song at the top of your lungs? Who cares if you’re not a great singer?  It’s just you and your stereo reliving music that holds significant memories for you! Where are my lovers of eighties rock? That music was built on good vibes! Think the ending song from The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo’s Fire, “Love is a Battlefield”, anything from the long haired band set (Def Leopard, Guns and Roses, Jovi, Aerosmith, etc). A nineties music lover? Well, blast some Nirvana, Green Day, Third Eye Blind, whatever gets you feeling good! 
I love dancing and singing to anything and everything from The Beatles to Lady Gaga. Music is just a natural source of positivity for me! The good feelings created from this release of tension and daily stress helps me stay an upbeat person and makes me smile for miles!
Smiling! That’s the final way to stay optimistic and joyful year round!  Smiling makes you more approachable and creates a friendly glow about you. You know the saying “You catch more flies with honey?”  This is so true! People are more willing to help you out when you approach them with a smile.  Smiling and laughing release those feel good endorphins making everything in the world seem a little bit brighter!
  Using these simple techniques mentioned, will help keep the good feelings we experience at this time of the year going throughout the whole year!  Maybe I’m super optimistic, but wouldn’t life be better if we all found a way to keep our glass half full for 365 days a year?  I’m not saying sad things won’t happen, but if we strive to find ways to make us feel good, then maybe we could get through our lots in life, and feel amazing in the process! Here’s to finding what makes you happy!
