C is for curious…

colorful-1313027_640is for curious 


It’s a big world out there.
Lots to learn and experience.
Lots of places to go and people to meet.

Expand your horizons.
Look at people, places, and things from a different perspective.
Ask questions about what you see and hear then look for the answers.

Some people may think you are odd for being curious.
Don’t worry about them they are probably boring people.
People who have no curiosity have small lives.

Curiosity is having an interest in the world.
Those who are curious are important to the world.
If it wasn’t for the curious we would be living in a dark ugly world.

Be someone who is curious about their world.

There will always be people who will tell you what to be and who to be like.
Listen politely to their advice then decide for yourself what and who you will be.
You will make mistakes but you will also do things right.

Just because there are fences doesn’t mean you have to stay behind them.
Be courageous and adventurous.
It’s your journey, listen to your heart and travel your path.

You are who you are.
Make no excuses for this fact.
Celebrate being you.

Be someone who is bold and brave living your own beautiful life.

A to Z Challenge 2018 · Be someone who... · whatever!

A is for appreciate…

colorful-1313027_640 is for  appreciate


Doesn’t matter what someone looks like or how they are dressed.
Rich or poor, educated or not, healthy or unwell…the list is endless.
Everyone has worth and something of value to share.

It’s a big scary dark world when you feel alone and insignificant.
No one is invisible though many are unseen.
People are meant to be acknowledged and respected.

Be aware of the people around you.
Take time to look at them.
Really see them.

Be someone who appreciates the people who share your world.

The Way I See It


Friends to me come in categories.
There are friends who are acquaintances;
people you know and occasionally see but really don’t know well.
I have lots of these friends.
There are friends who are work pals,
you rarely if ever see them outside of the workplace.
I have had some of these friends and it made working nicer.
Some friends are those who share an interest,
you like to go to concerts or shows, have the same hobby or favorite past time.
I have a few of these friends and always enjoy our time together.
Some people are friends during a season or time of life,
once the season or time is over they drift away.
Over the years I have had several of these friends and treasure the memories.
Then there are friends who are family,
sometimes they are closer than your family.
These friends are there for you whenever you need them
for whatever reason you need them.
They listen and don’t judge, don’t offer advice unless asked,
and then tell you like it is and if it hurts they will cry with you.
They will tell you when you are wrong in what
you are thinking or doing and offer to help you get back on track.
They will laugh with you but never at you.
You can tell them your secrets and they will never tell anyone else.
If time, distance, or circumstances separate you
when you are together again it is like you were never apart.
They share their hearts and lives with you because they love you.
I have a couple of friends like this and I am blessed beyond measure.
The way I see it…you need all kinds of friends.

 Friendly Fill-Ins, week 48

  1. I don’t understand why rap music is so popular. Maybe I don’t understand because I am not of the Rap generation.


2. My in-case-of-emergency person is two friends who are family to me. 


3. There is so much violence and hatred in the world and I just don’t get it!


4. I would be lost without friends, books, and my catkids.

I will have a topic for the letter of the day.
I will write what I think about it.
That’s it.

So that’s it my theme reveal
