A Reminder:

Here you are sitting on a rocking chair on your porch, watching the fading sun sinking behind the vast blue ocean. Words begin to whirl inside your head. Then, you and your past become as one, if you know what I mean. Then, the tears come.

–People like us, have worked themselves to exhaustion.

–People like us, are the first and last to be off the wall and have their heads in the sand.

–People like us, at some point, begin to think that the more they try, the worse that they become.

–People like us, are the ones who sense when troubles are coming before they do.

–People like us, become tired of their own lives and their own troubles.

–People like us, let their burdens drive them back to places that they don’t want to go and places that they don’t want to see.

*While it is true that, our lives keep us on our feet, we must understand that every day, and in every way, we are getting closer, stronger, and better.

*Let us not forget that, we are the darlings, the sweet peas, and the light of this world.

**Let us keep moving on with our heads up and face forward.
