There is a funny thing about life. It can and will always surprise you. Life will always uncannily show you how small your problems are in the relation to how much bigger this world actually is in an instant.

Okay, okay I know! We all already knew that, right? But its those little things that take me by surprise the most and pull me up short in times of melancholy.

Like how I can be sad mopey and throwing the pity party of the century, and some one I barely know(but know well)  will take the effort and time to write a poem to help cheer me up and make my day better.    (I’m not completely certain it was meant for me, but I think so! grin*)

Or how someone can just smile in passing on the street, and it can give warmth to take the edges off the sharp thoughts of your mind for a few seconds, minutes, hours. Time vary’s on the brilliance of that smile! Point of it being, it made you forget your troubles if even for a moment. It gave you peace.

Or how a child can gift you with a drawing, complete with stick figures wearing smiles or a paper filled by hearts, and when you ask ‘who’ is this ‘what’ is this? Their sweet innocent words will melt you when they tell you ‘it’s you and me silly’and you will feel the enormity of their innocent love for you. Not because  you earned it, but because that is what innocent love is.

These are the things that life is about.

It’s not about getting what we want. It’s not about the sadness or the disappointments of what we think we need and cannot obtain. It’s not about pity party’s and the whining of that old familiar song of ‘oh whoa is me, no one knows my problems’.  It’s not suppose to be like this. We will all go through tough times and we will all have a point (or several) in our lives where we will feel defeated. Its a human condition. It gives us understanding of the brevity of life. Its a checks and balances in place for us. If we didn’t have struggles we’d never attempt to grow.

It’s about those gifts that we so easily pass by without recognition. Because, and I realized this this morning, that it is so much more than their simple appearance of poems, smiles, and innocent love that they disguise themselves in. It’s energy.  Positive, pure,  free flowing energy, and it is being gifted to each of us daily from unexpected, but beautiful sources.

The learning to survive on the hard days with the positive energy around us, and creating joy and positive energy for others on the good days- that is what we are meant to do. We transfer energy among ourselves to grow in that positive love ourselves. Energy never dies. We can create it, but we can never extinguish it. Love can never die. It can transform, but ultimately it can never die.

It’s the ultimate pay it forward we can gift to others. It cost us nothing to give or to absorb. But what it gives us in return is the capacity to love one another, to love our universe and to love ourselves with a full magnitude at a higher awareness.

      Everything is! The most powerful and positive form of it is love! I’m learning there are lots of us out here on WP who have a meeting of the minds and who believe alike! It’s so wonderful! Thanks for reading! 😃

    This is easy to nod and agree to. But we know that those sad and desperate moments where self pity parties is all that we feel like blaring music for, do happen. And sometimes they overtake any energy we have for love. Overtake or blinds it. What do you think about this? 🙂

      I don’t think it blinds it, I think it consumes the human part of us and blocks the positive energy from flowing into us from outside. Without that positive energy, we feel self-pity and disconnected. We forget how small we are and instead we think we are all that matters and that only our problems are big ones that count, dont you? I think we forget the universe is so much bigger and means more, and has more planned for all of us if we’re open to it!

        Thank you for your response and I am a little sorry I have taken so long to reply to your reply. I agree whole heartedly. Being consumed is an easy thing to let happen without realizing it. And yes,our problems seem like the biggest on the planet and it’s difficult to really feel and understand ‘ someone always has it worst’. Which we all know is true, but not always what is going to help us. May we continually remind ourselves that the universe IS a whole bunches bigger than us, and that life isn’t forever. So that when sadness drapes over our hearts, it’ll become easier to pull back the curtains and let the sunshine ray in on our limited life length. 🙂

    There is a Mumford and Sons lyric that I absolutely love and I think it applies here: “In these bodies we will live, in these bodies we will die,
    And where you invest your love, you invest your life.”

    Our essence and energy is all we are and all we have. How we use it, where we invest it, is what we are in this life. Be love. 🙂
