"Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. Life is beauty, admire it. Life is bliss, taste it. Life is a dream, realize it. Life is a challenge, meet it. Life is a duty, complete it. Life is a game, play it. Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is sorrow, overcome it. Life is a song, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it. Life is a tragedy, confront it. Life is an adventure, dare it. Life is luck, make it. Life is too precious, do not destroy it. Life is life, fight for it" -- Mother Teresa

Because I'm waiting..
Between me and the crowded room
is a path paved with fear.
My foot sinks in soft concrete as I make my way
towards that ball of fire which is the room.
heat hits my face
I'm choking I'm hot I'm cold I'm dizzy
I'm spinning I'm not there I'm outside myself.
Not a thought in sight. I am pure emotion
which hurtles me along that path.
The room full of people is near.
I feel naked and exposed in my fear, visible on my face.
Can't pretend, can't fake.
A shaky voice and crimson cheeks give me away.
I have no name butanxiety.
Want to cry with frustration. Why me? Why not?
And then the wave has washed over me and my mind settles back into my body.
I mingle , already armed for the next wave rising in the distance and building like a tsunami.
Vanakam!!My belief system consists of thoughts that are sourced in the formless space of infinite wisdom, beauty and unconditional love. Each one totally supports the truth of who I am, which motivates me to refer to the past with gratitude, create a future of prosperity and joy, and live in the present moment as a self-empowered being embracing on a clean slate each moment of now...
Today I know that even when I am in pain I can adopt positive attitudes. I can be grateful to be able to touch my feelings.I can be grateful that I have friends with whom to share them.I know that I have been wounded by my past experiences..but I am not
solely those wounds. I am also the person who is healing. As I recognize the pain of the past, I am able to begin to experience life in a new way. I am excited of my life...YihakkKK!!~
