Sit quietly and just let your mind wander Concentrate on your breathing, inhale and exhale Feel the connection to the beauty around you Experience the joy of just being, seep into your heart The lightness of your spirit will carrying you upwards And you will feel you’re soaring like a bird in the open skies

Your Weekly Prompt –Network – July 8, 2021
We all need our support network around us when we face difficult situations. Family and/or friends are so helpful with their support and advice. I, for one, cannot imagine being without my support network.
At times I turn to my family for support and advice and at other times, it’s my friends who provide comfort. This network is essential to maintain sanity and balanced views on life and overcoming the tricky challenges.
Without outside support, we can and do get overwhelmed, we lose our objectivity, and can make wrong decisions and choices. A person or group that has our best interest at heart can guide us through this maze of uncertainty. I rely on the advice of my support network because I know in a state of emotional distress, I can make mistakes.
Do you have a support network? Do you trust your family more with your problems or your friends?

A very happy birthday to you Eugenia! Hope you had a blast.
Throw a party and celebrate life It’s a one way ride, enjoy it to the full Each day that we are alive, is a cause of celebration Our hopes and aspirations, dreams and goals All weave a tapestry, colorful and bright Like the starburst of brilliant nova, illuminate the world Be someone they remember as a kind, generous being
Let them mingle The colored and the colorless* Let them share their life stories And exchange views on their struggles
Let them find a common ground And perhaps they will realize finally That the color or absence of it Makes no difference to who they are
Maybe there will be a point When we all will realize That color of our skin should not Give or take away any privilege
Let themmingle, and then perhaps?
( * I have used the term colorless deliberately because it seems strange to me that someone who is brown or black is referred to as “people of color”, while the Caucasian races are referred to as “White” …… Why? I think we all are different shades of brown!)
