Jail Break

016

.

“When you no longer

need approval from others

like the air you breathe,

the possibilities in life

are endless.

What an interesting

little prison we build

from the invisible bricks

of other people’s opinions.”

.

~ Jacob Nordby

.

Somewhere in the mind there is a place

where satisfaction comes from pleasing others.

It is a nice place but one should remember

that next to that spot is a happy spot that

should be strong enough to run free

without needing approval from others.

Today, don’t imprison yourself

with the opinions of others,

seek out your happy spot and run free.

Happiness is a jail break.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.

Through Different Eyes

“Blessed are the weird people:

poets, misfits, writers

mystics, painters, troubadours

for they teach us

to see the world

through different eyes.”

The butterfly is adorned in camouflage

to make its predators think that it is a large bird.

How much of life is concealed in deceit ? ? ?

We must give thanks to all of those people who

think outside of the box,

who explain the disguises of this world,

who make us take a second look

at what we think we saw.

Life is to see the world through different eyes.

Life is to live and love in the here and now.
