A Conscious Choice

.

,

“Happiness is a

conscious choice,

not an automatic

response.”

.
~ Mildred Barthel

.

.

You do not make me happy,

it is my response to you, my conscious decision

to make myself happy,

however, it does help when you do something nice,

something that makes my heart sing.

Today, to be happy I will consciously

go to wonderful places, do the next right thing

and hang with the beautiful people.

Today, follow my lead and be

conscious and be happy.

Happiness is a conscious choice.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.

Sorry

.

“A real friend

isn’t capable

of feeling sorry

for you.”

.

~ Jodi Picoult

.

No regrets, no remorse,

sorry doesn’t cut it.

A real friend knows compassion, empathy

and how to make a silk purse from a sows ear.

Even in the worst of times a friend is the ray of hope,

the silver lining to your dark cloud,

the pot of gold at the end of your rainbow

the soul who knows sorry is a mistake

that can be atoned for.

Friendship is never having to be sorry.

Friendship is a priceless gem

that is to be valued and protected.
