JusJoJan #23 ; One-liner Wednesday

Never criticize someone until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes, that way, when you criticize them, they won’t be able to hear you from that far away plus, you’ll have their shoes.

Your prompt for JusJoJan 2019, January 22nd is brought to you by Pamela! Click here to find her last post and say hi while you’re there! Pamela’s word for our prompt today is “curiosity.” Use it anywhere in your post or make it the theme of your post. Have fun!

Touching and feeling

Exploring and finding

Only our curiosity

Can bring the answers

We seek to learn here

The world is a boring place

For the unimaginative one

For without the urge to explore

And giving in to our curiosity

We would be no better than

All the inanimate objects around us

Echoes from yesterday

Life sometimes seems a replay of itself. We see and feel that the happening of today are the same as that of yesterday. This echo from our past has a dejá vu effect on our minds. Specially when we see what our next generation is going through. The basic problems that we faced in our growing up years are the same that the people today are facing. Especially in the emotional context. The insecurity and other challenges we faced are the same today. Theses echoes from our past do remind us of our own feelings back then. Reliving the past, one thing becomes very clear. We all go through a certain set of issues in our lives which make and shape our personality. These twists and turns of the fate bring us to this present point in our lives. And we are a product of our past life. So the advice I give to my kids is that face up to life’s challenges as they will toughen you up for what is coming ahead. Echoes from the past are a reminder that we also were there and how we overcame our troubles, trials and tribulations to get here.

Serendipity January 20

Here are the rules:

Please be sure to link back to THIS POST for January 20th, 2019.

We have seen a lot of movies where through unforeseen and unusual incidents, the story path ends in a happy circumstance. We call this serendipity. Does it actually happen in real life? We have to believe that it does! There are quite a few incidents where some lucky chance resulted in a fortunate ending for most of at some point in our lives. It maybe something quite small or may have very significant importance in our lives. Most of us call it our good luck. Some think of it as destiny.

Believing in serendipity, keeps the magic alive. We all need to believe in a bit of magic to keep the life being mundane and ordinary.

SoCS. : Television

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “television.” Talk about your favorite show, past, present, or future, or about the apparatus itself. Enjoy!

Nopes, thank you!

I don’t enjoy watching television these days. I have much better things to do with my time. In the good old days, that is, when I was younger,I did enjoy some of the tv programs but now it seems to be more of the same. I absolutely don’t want to watch any news related programs and same about the rest of the entertainment. I would rather write my blog or read a book. I would even prefer to do my jigsaw puzzle than watch television.

And for my entertainment I like to catch a movie. Specially with family or besties. I even enjoy going on my own, specially if it’s a movie that only I have a taste for.

So thanks but no, thanks. I rather not watch television

Your prompt for JusJoJan 2019, January 18th is brought to you by Di! Click here to find her last post and say hi while you’re there! Di’s word for our prompt today is “companionship.” Use it anywhere in your post or make it the theme of your post. Have fun!

Here are the rules:

Please be sure to link back to THIS POST for January 18th, 2019.

Who would be your best friend? The companionship that you would desire above all other? Who else but you yourself! In life you get many opportunities to make friends. You have your family, your significant other and then the married people have their spouses. All can be great companions. But in all this, if you are not a true friend to yourself, the others are not going to fill the gap which can only be filled by our own self love. This love of ours need to be accepting of our personality, our deficiencies and positive traits.

The alone time need not be a lonely time, if we provide company to ourselves. Be supportive of your own decisions, and not to be your own worse enemy. I hope that I am making some sense here, but I want to express this thing clearly. If you are not going to be your own friend, you will find hard to make other friends. Why? Because if we accept our own self, with all our flaws the message we project to others is of a positive nature. But if we are in conflict with ourselves, the image projected is negative. We come across as a person who is forever in need of assurance and confidence boosting. Self love is the key to living a satisfying life.

So be your own faithful, loving and understanding companion.

Give an inch and they take a mile!

And also need you to take it with a smile

If you are not willing, you are a grinch

If you are open, it is taken without a cinch

Be a doormat and they will walk all over you

Exhibit a strong will and there is resentment against you

There is no pleasing some people and just damp down

The desire to be popular by suppressing your own

The mirror hanging on the wall

Shows a reflection of a person

Dignified and somber, thin and tall

There is a seriousness in his eyes

A frown on his face, forehead lined

Regret and sadness clouding his mind

He regretted the events of the past years

How he was wishing to undo all that had

Happened in the past , but wishing never

Made things go away, he has to take action

He made a decision to take the steps

Arrange details and act on the words

Spoken with true resolve, and determination

He orders his foreman to arrange the release

Of all the slaves in his bondage and on his land.

There in the corner of the garden

Lived a whole family of pixies

A tiny cottage surrounded by

Pretty decorative mushrooms

They have a couple of elves

As friendly neighbors who share

This secluded corner of the garden

Their hope is to live here, undiscovered

Safe from the prying eyes of the humans

Who in their curiosity might destroy

All the beauty of their hidden habitat
