“The beginning of love
is to let those we love
be perfectly themselves’
and not to twist them
to fit our own image.
Otherwise we love only
the reflection of ourselves
we find in them.”
~ Thomas Merton
We are all characters with traits,
some of which are likable to others,
some of which may be annoying.
Love is that soul who has more likable traits
and even their few annoying ones
may be tolerable to some degree.
Today, live the paradox,
in love it is usually our differences
which make us compatible.
Love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves.
Love is helping someone love themselves.

“A smile is
a curved line
that sets things
A blessing for the lazy from the Great Creator,
it takes far fewer muscles to smile than it does to frown.
Other than the Narcissistic,
most people do not like to look into a mirror
and they usually go through the day unaware
of the expression they wear on their face.
Today, be conscious, and understand that every face you see
is a reflection of your disposition.
Smile, it makes them wonder what you are up to.
Happiness is a smile.
Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
