Love in Vain

Time heals all wounds, albeit slowly, and never quite completely. But all we can do is pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, & keep it moving. Whatever pain we feel is proportionate to the lesson learned. And if the lesson was not learned, you can be sure the experience, & it's accompanying pain will be yours again. Forgive so you may learn, and learn so that you may forgive. Your Resentments & Grudges will destroy YOU from the inside out...while the one you can't forgive or forget, has moved on, like teflon, all the pain & anger you directed at him (or her) slid right off & ricocheted back to you. Let it you can break the cycle and embrace a new day. Remember, tis better to have loved & lost than never to have loved at all. Love may bring pain, but never is Love in Vain. - © Lisa Pearlman

Do You Have the Attitude of Gratitude

I accidentally deleted my Thanksgiving post from 11/24/11, so I am RePosting it. I am GRATEFUL I had it saved elsewhere! (Thanks "Evernote")

Hey fam! HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you and yours! May we all be blessed with a day of Abundance surrounded by our friends or family and filled with peace, love, light and of course Gratitude. Gratitude. Such a simple word to convey so much meaning. Studies have shown time and again that Gratitude is the one essential feeling state necessary for Happiness. You may not have EVERY THING you ever wanted, chances are you do not, but to experience Gratitude, and in turn, Happiness, you must at least recognize the miracle of abundance in some aspect of your life. Rather than pining for what you DON'T have, acknowlege that you WANT some of what you DO have. Hence, in order to experience True Happiness it is important to cultivate a feeling of Gratitude, or "Attitude of Gratitude." How? Start by taking a few quiet minutes to yourself today to really experience Gratitude in the Now. This can be done in many ways...count your blessings, make a gratitude list, do a gratitude meditation, offer blessings to others, pray for world healing or an individual's recovery, or simply treat everyone with compassion and kindness. Make this practice part of your daily routine, ideally at the start of your day or before you retire at the end of your day. Seize "GRATITUDE Moments" through-out the day...while in the shower or in line at the bank, during the morning commute, while waiting for the bus...quick mental reminders or affirmations that arouse a feeling of Gratitude can be squeezed into any spare minute of the day. After a month of Gratitude Practice, evaluate your level of Happiness. Do you notice any difference(s) in your life? Let me know! I would love to hear some feedback from you, whether it be on this post, or a previous one. Please leave your comments! I appreciate and value your input, in addition to your readership! Happy Thanksgiving! ~ Lisa @Scorpiol13

The written word is as essential to my life as oxygen is. I live and breathe the written word. It is my saving grace, my strength, my sanity, my "raison d'ĂȘtrĂ©." And when I am gone, my writing will be my legacy, allowing me to live forever through my words. I not only see, speak and hear words...I FEEL words. Each word seems to have its own unique quirks and qualities...texture, color, sound, rhythm, temperature, tone, mood, volume, flavor...all of which are independent of it's assigned meaning or definition. In fact, all these perceived nuances undergo transformation, whether subtle or profound, when a word is combined with another word or group of words. Wordplay, rhymes, compound syllables, synonyms, homonyms, simile, metaphor, allegory, alliteration...they all interact to create a dynamic flow. The possibilities are endless.
