20 centimeters of kindness

Okay, it's snowing ridiculously where I am from. Flights getting delayed, people not showing up for work, and vehicles getting stuck, all for the sake of 20 centimeters of heavy snow. Now I know people have their daily agendas for the day and unless it is an emergency or one is in a rush, would it really kill to stop and help the individual out of a rut? Especially if you drive a 4x4 and have the necessary equipment to assist, such as a shovel, rope, or solid breakers.

I see others driving by nonchalantly like Mr. bean and his bean mobile without a care as to look at others. We all live on this forsaken earth experiencing the same forsaken circumstances. The single most important thing we all have is each other. So do a good deed, give what you have to offer and take a little time to help. Surely, everyone needs a push when stuck in 20 centimeters of snow...............

unless you live in nice warm weather than never mind......................j/k.

Got My Eye on You

Waiting to cross
Over sized Yellow raincoat
Big rubber boots

Bright Lights Glare
Almost blinding. foggy
Flickering Mist from the rain

dripping cold.

Soaked from droplets
and splashes from side passing cars
Pedestrian Lights switches on behind dark solid grid lines
Looking both ways, cold...wet...shivering.

Final step to end of the gray mildly cracked pavement
stop light flashes, a car begins to pass
A glance. A smile

Waiting to cross
In big rubber boots.

Glimmer of sunlight
drips of remaining rain
Warmth. A breath. A smile.

Always smile people as you never know who is watching
You just may have caught someones attention as your smile just made you 100% more attractive!

*cheers to all you lovely people*

Series of Unfortunate Events

We've all had our share of bad days and to say the least we are all allowed to be feeling depressed, sad, and confused. A mix of emotions that stir the mind when unfortunate events occur, events that are controlled by fate, destiny, with or without reason, or affected by negative choices from loved ones.

The significance lies in how we take the next step in rectifying the situation; talking with friends, exercising, taking some time away to think, or compromising with loved ones. Whatever cards you are dealt with in life confront your dilemmas and attempt to handle them the best way possible. Although we cannot control life's events we are able to control the aftermath, it's up to you to make your journey a positive or negative experience.
