nothing much to say today - i have a great worry that has my mind clouded and burdened that i'm not quite ready to share with the world at large. positive thoughts and prayers are welcomed and appreciated.

so, i will leave you with one of my favorite go to poems when i'm blue....by cooper edens.

If the world is crashing, wear islands for bumpers
If the sky is falling, use the clouds to cushion your fall
Everything doesn’t have to be a catastrophe
It doesn’t all have to be taken to heart,
Unless you open the heart with love.
If the end of the rope is near, untie the knot and leap
You might be surprised at your ability to land.

Sometimes holding on is the worse thing we can do.
The edges we hold, cut and sting.
Tip over the carton and take a bath,
Open the box and take delight in the present,
Make a hat from the wrappings.
You cannot save it for that rainy day.

If you live in fear of no happy ending,
The book might turn out the way you expected.
Take up the pen and write your own story.
Maybe add a dragon, a knight or something
Just for you.

In the deepest dark of your night,
When you’re afraid to open your eyes.
Try to dream of adding a comet to light your way,
Or an extra star in your constellation.
