Water Cooler Chat…
it’s a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
It’s good, it’s relevant and all of it isn’t about “the news,”
It isn’t post November 8th yet — and this is not a NEWS PERUSE. 🙂
Good morning baby. I stay up, awake and aware
so let’s talk about Love and War – where all is fair.
LIFE. That’s a good place to start.
What’s been going on with the GOOD of your heart?
Have you been good to yourself? Here lies the true measure of a self lover:
we know we have to be good to us FIRST before we can be of any use to others.
But you knew that. Right? Because we hang out all of the time.
Are you still on your AFFIRMATIONS, starting your day with a shine
of encouragement and meditation? It’s our support as the day grinds on.
Life ain’t no crystal stair, still we hold our own.
I love being grown. Love is what I’m into.
I confess I love me some me and I love me some YOU.
What on earth are we going to do if everyone starts feeling like me?
‘Mess around and Earth will become a place of tolerance and unity.
Ooo Wee. Kiss me. Let me infect your mood.
Then you pay-it-forward and kiss that dude in brood.
Not “physically kiss” him – but by all means do something nice.
Life can be a boring Mrs. if we don’t yield the proper spice.
Yeah. I’m a pay-it-forward lady, I go to Starbucks just to see how much it will cost me
to stand in line behind ahead of a party of 9 and pick up the tab for their coffee.
It is a little scary but so far I’ve been blessed.
No one has overly taken advantage of the “pay-it-forward” test.
People are kind and for the most part we mean well,
but when we’re PO’d — all of that “wellness” goes to hell.
WAR. It ain’t pretty.
And the once smooth pavement is now tarnished and gritty.
Disagreements… they happen and they are natural, in fact.
Though it’s how you handle them that will separate you from the pack
🙂 🙂 🙂
Disagreements can cause the bear to come out in even the cutest cub
and make it difficult for you to remember ‘to love’ or render a necessary hug.
I get it. I hate disagreements but them I’m not always coy
when it comes to voicing my opinion or making a point.
Anywho relationships are at stake
when we handle WAR the wrong way.
Being on ‘the outs’ only means that somewhere there is an ‘IN,’
so when you’re on ‘the out’s’ – stop and look for the new begin.
Don’t spend any unnecessary time arguing with the people that you love.
Life is unpredictable and fragile — ALWAYS opt for the hug.
Give no time at all to arguing with folks you don’t know,
that’s when your weakness and powerlessness shows.
If you’re in control then don’t throw bows but DO always walk away.
If you are out of control – walk away quickly with a runners sway. 😉
WAR is rarely an option. Life is about prevailing with cooler heads.
You’re neighbor is more than that, but your beloved who shares your bed.
We breathe the same air and drink the same water as well.
If you harm your neighbor — all will go to hell.
Whether he be next door or half way around the world…
Suck up and the be the bigger person – forfeit being “the little girl.”
and let beauty from chaos be released.
Ooo wee, I’m hardly thirsty -I just hang out at this Cooler to Chat,
Made of 71% Water, I’m the griots daughter – pulling from a well not a vat.
Water is key.
