Past, present, future…

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #17


  1. My past–I was rebellious and angry and afraid.
  2. My present–I am at peace with myself and content with little fear.
  3. My future–I hope to continue as I am, growing in wisdom and love fearlessly.


The sharp fragmented pieces wildly scattered about
have gathered as soft feathers to fill this soul
preparing it to soar in the heavens.

  1. I am most proud of being on my own and supporting myself since I was 17. ¬†It hasn’t always been easy and I am not too proud to say there was a time I asked for help but other than that one time I have taken care of myself for 51 years.peace-of-mind-349815_640

While on the bus…


Today I was on the bus on my way to a dental appointment.
I get a little anxious about dental appointments and as I was
trying to think of things to calm myself I started thinking about this
weeks prompt at In Other Words;

“Remember no one can make you feel inferior
without your consent.‚ÄĚ
Eleanor Roosevelt

While I was thinking of Eleanor Roosevelt a man got on the bus.
He was very old, very little, very frail and very shy.
He did not speak or look at anyone.  He just looked at the floor.
He had great difficulty getting on and off the bus.
He got off the bus going down the steps very slowly…and backwards.

Then while on the bus coming home a man came and sat with me.
He was kind of old, kind of big, kind of hearty and kind of outgoing.
As we rode along we talked and laughed.
I learned he likes liver and onions, prays every day, takes early morning walks,
is an amateur astronomer and is concerned about the hungry and homeless.

I wonder why one man on the bus seemed to be so frightened.
Does he feel inferior because of his physical condition?
And why is the other man so friendly?
Because he is strong and healthy?

I wanted to give both men a hug.  For different reasons.
But I gave neither one a hug.  For different reasons.

Done thinking…

“If you spend too much time thinking about
a thing you‚Äôll never get it done.‚ÄĚ
Bruce Lee

~~~Thinking or Done~~~


Boy, can I relate to this quote! I am a very good thinker, not a great doer. I like to think and plan and give it to someone else to do. Fine for the chair of a committee or a company strategist, not so good for a person on her own which is what I am.  No one but me to implement the plans around here.

The only place I think and do is here. ¬†Well, even here I sometimes think and don’t do. That’s the way it is with procrastinators daydreamers.

I have been thinking about this post
and have written it so now it is done.
Yay me!
