Perfectly Themselves


“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



“A smile is

a curved line

that sets things



~ Anonymous



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.
