Alone Or Lonely
Alone or lonely which one am I?
Hmmm let me see, I can’t decide.
If I was alone you wouldn’t be listening to me.
Maybe just I’m lonely!
Or could it be I’m in between.
Wanting to be alone but needing to be seen!
I think I want to be alone.
No-one calls on the phone.
Spending some quiet time in a quiet place
Just needing my own space!
Hours and hours with me and me only
Sigh… Now I’m feeling lonely!

Have you started to write a new chapter in your life today? If not, why not? Was it because the last one didn’t make the best sellers list? Did you have writers block or felt you had nothing to write? Do you believe no-one would read or even care?
Stop focusing on other people when it comes to you and your life. In order to inspire others, you first have to inspire yourself. So, write your story and remember to be true to yourself and make every word count for something. Lastly, don’t let others write your story for you, because they’ll never get it right! Hugs and love from me to you. Valarie
As we enter into a new year, don’t allow old habits, lifestyles, attitudes or people hold you back, including you. There’s a purpose and plan for your life, so find it and fulfill it! Let 2015 be the beginning of the best times of your life or the continuation of it. The past is gone, the present is now and the future is before you. Don’t use past failures as a crutch or situations and people as a reason to sit idle wishing things were different. Use your experiences good or bad to your advantage. Learn from them and use them as a stepping stone out of the pit and a spring-board into your future. Hugs and love from me to you! Valarie
There’s no greater gift then love. With that said it’s a gift often taken for granted in the giving and/or receiving of it being automatically understood telepathically. (What does that mean? Yep, that’s exactly how they feel with those gray emotions).
Try show and tell, that way no-one has infer what you’re thinking and assume what your actions could’ve meant. Gifts are great but words make them even better. Don’t for get to say…”I Love You!”
This time of the year, hearts are open and the spirit of giving is in the air. Kindness can be seen and felt from people who are normally caught in their own lives and needs. Children are excited as they count down the days to Christmas and vacation. It truly is a special time of the year for most.
Let us remember those who are not as fortunate, blessed even to enjoy this festive time of the year. Their only concern is their next meal or where they will lay their heads. Christmas is just another day and gifts will be something for others to enjoy. A child’s only thoughts and words will be “I’m hungry and I’m cold!” as they quietly bow their heads cry because there will be no toys for them to open.
I’m not trying to make anyone feel guilty for what they have, only to remind us to remember the people next door, your co-worker who has been fasting 3 or 4 days a week because they have no money to eat every day and the food at home has to last. Say a prayer for them and if possible share what you have. Embarrassment or pride will make them say they are fine so, don’t ask just give discretely and walk away. They’ll appreciate it more than words can ever express and please don’t wait or expect them to say thank you. If you see them avoid your eyes or, a tear starting to form, know you’ve touched their heart.
Love never fails, so keep showing it! – Valarie
I saw a post from Simple Life on 21 days of gratitude challenge. I thought wow, that’s awesome, 21 days to share why you’re grateful. I’m grateful for the ability to see others through the eyes of love. Regardless of how someone acts, my response is a choice. No-one can make me respond a certain way. My response good or bad is solely on me.
I’m thankful and grateful for all the love, encouragement and support I receive from family and friends, as well as patience and longsuffering of my flaws. I’m grateful to God for creating me the way he has, the more I learn of myself, the more I see how special I am.
With anything else understanding how special you are will help you to see how unique and special others are too!
Having an attitude of gratitude will help to keep you humble and appreciative of everything you’ve been blessed to receive and keep you from comparing yourself to others. Valarie Lovelight
Love chooses to see, believe, and hope for the best!
