Funny You Are

Funny

Feature Photo by Tengyart Upsplash.com

I love you for all that you are, all that you have been, all that you’re yet to be.

Ernest Hemingway

“This too will pass, and the best is yet to come.” If you whine in her company, she’ll tell you this and then make you repeat it. Remind you often, so it’s etched into your brain. Don’t forget, if you want to be in her company, or else!

Loving her new life, not wanting to get out of bed too early; although she does make a dutiful, and very important move to look after Alice in the chalice (serious consequences if she doesn’t) and certainly not until she’s had her morning cuppa. Her first enjoyment of the new day.  Lifting her lips from the cup she croons, “tasty cup of tea. Did you make it?” I look around to see if there is anyone else in the coop but us two. She’s kidding and I’m doing a follow-up.

Believe me, she’s like that. If it isn’t funny, this lady will make it funny. People always laugh in her company; Aaah she’s a true Brit, master of the understatement.

A joy to live with and we’ll see many sunrises and sunsets together as we walk through the vale on the road to the mountaintop. I could not imagine a more beautiful soul to share that experience when we gaze out to forever.

Love Loving

The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.

Ernest Hemingway

Love Loving Yourself

How special are you in terms of your own opinion? Concerning this question in my own life, I came to see that from the age of seven years (I cannot recall anything before that time) to just a few years ago; I had many fears and insecurities.

When I was a teenager, I embarked on a long-time affair – with a mirror, yes a mirror! And probably connected to the fact that I noticed the opposite sex found me attractive. Naturally, I wanted to take full advantage of this newfound interest.

My Love Affair

Love yourself to Freedom

While all this was taking place, unawares to me, there was the subconscious surfacing of my fears and insecurities. As a consequence, these began competing with my mirror affair. Something else that climbed onto the stage of my love affair at this time was the increasing use of my imagination. I began pretending to be someone I was not (a type of Walter Mitty – by comparison.)

Love Yourself First

Today I know that I could have saved myself heartache and grief. These fears and insecurities would cause me to be co-dependent on the partners with whom I loved above myself. I discovered self-love only a few years ago. Since that discovery, I broke the chains of co-dependency.

Ancient Words of Wisdom

An ancient scripture reveals that we must love others as we love ourselves. The ancient text also states there is no greater wisdom than this action. What we don’t immediately illumine is this:

‘We cannot love anyone too much if we don’t love ourselves as much.’

Concentration-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

concentration

Feature Photo by Artur Shamsutdinov upsplash.com

With my life, the end is never in sight, so I’m left with a concentration on the present – whoever designed this concept is brilliant!

In my life, I have a loving, caring, uncomplaining wife, she is a gem of a woman. And I love her so.

I wonder how much of my life is divinely inspired, influenced, controlled? There appears to be a strong current flowing through it. When I swim against it, I struggle; when I release my grip, I drift with the current.

Focusing on my dreams, developing emotions for them, and seeing them in the light of now, not tomorrow, helps them come to pass.

What has been given to me in this life is a gift. As I share it with others It increases the value of what I have been given, by at least a hundred times or more.

I have a backpacker nature, and as my stay in this world is temporary, I will not shoulder any inessential loads whatsoever and will travel light.

I have been searching for ways to improve my focus and concentration, it’s not easy.

Four Wisdom Snippets To Help You Bend a Little.

I see fear as a recipe for failure, but the good news is, I am empowered to beat fear and start over again.

Before I can change the world I must needs change myself. Looking honestly into myself, I find plenty that needs changing.

There have been many times I have had to bend to survive, fortunately, if I bend for too long, it gives me backache.

The span of my years is not in my control. What is in my control is how I enjoy them.

Wisdom Snippets From Peter-Live a Full Life

Water Ski

Four Wisdom Snippets To Help You love Life.

My life is one big Blessing, I love it! I acknowledge this in gratitude both at the beginning and end of my day. Daily, I live my life to the full.

I own no valuables that are worth stealing. The two most valuable possessions I have in my life, are my heart and my dreams, and, trust me, they are staying put.

It is said, “Life is too short.” Yet, none of us wants to grow old. A little confusing. Queen was on the right track when Freddy Mercury sang, “Who Wants to Live Forever.” Well I do, I don’t care how old I am – I just love life. How about you?

I am a free soul. As a youth, I used to water-ski naked at night – did you?

Wisdom Snippets From Peter-Loving Life

Life

Five Wisdom Snippets To Help You love Life.

I have discovered that I learn so much more when I keep my mouth Shut. With my mouth shut, I am considered wise and loving.

I have a wonderful life as I take ownership of the hurdles I encounter journeying forward. These hurdles don’t belong to anyone else, they are mine. As a result, I am the master of my own destiny, having been given this mandate by God within me. I have truly found a loving life.

Each day brings new opportunities into my life and I am discovering how to identify them

Never whinge; winging is like bad breath – creates a poor image of oneself. Another thing, I never explain myself to others, it seems like a fruitless pastime to me.

I always try to put myself in other people’s shoes. Working from my shoes only limits my true perspective.I think the journey of my life is like climbing a mountain, along the climb there will be brief rests; I welcome these, but I must never linger there. To do so, would mean I will delay reaching the summit.

Weekly Word of Wisdom

Don’t Judge

“Before you judge another, walk a mile in their moccasins.”

At best, judging is a potentially harmful practice, at worst it offers no benefit, to either the judge or the one being judged.

The only people who should judge are Judges.

It has been my experience that judging others is easier for me than loving others; accepting them at face value and seeking to console, comfort, and encourage them. It appears that it is innate in me to see a difference in others and then pass judgment, labeling them too quickly instead of quitting that alien practice. My only hope for a remedy in my life is that I recognize the vile thought when it appears in my mind then change my attitude immediately. I’m grateful I am becoming stronger at removing it from me each day.
