LIFE can be “Oh-so-PURR-FECT” if you ALLOW it to BE.
A brimming PICTURE of PERFECTION can be MARRED by internal TURMOIL.
IMAGINE this scenario:
You are indoors and outside it’s pelting heavily.
Showers can be a pretty sight to behold.
The darting raindrops hit against the glass window, putting on an impressive display as they form creative circles of droplets.
A Barry Manilow ballad booms from a pair of stereo speakers at the far corner of the room.
Out on the porch a pair of wind chimes are vibrating against the breeze.
You espy a small river nearby, and the waters are glistening in last yawn of twilight.
The sight is therapeutic, instilling the sudden spurts of thoughts on living and loving as they are brought to mind.
Aren’t these inseparable companions?
MIKE DOOLEY says it all in this poem:
“If you just look
at all that already exists in your life,
all that you already have: unlimited air to breathe, ample lighting to see, music to hear, books to read, stars to dream by, trees to gaze at, floors to dance on, friends to cavort with, enemies to befriend, strangers to meet,
woods to walk through, beaches to comb, rocks to scale, rains to cleanse you, rivers to float you, animals to comfort you, you do have to admit, there’s more of it than you could ever, ever, ever spend.
But try anyway.”
We make a choice when we allow our thoughts to become us.
