The Worst Things (Poem)

The worst things that could happen to me,

oh there are far too many to see.

I could fall off a cliff!

Get kicked by a horse.

Lose my favorite gif,

Have my skin get coarse.

All I can think of is what could go wrong,

there’s many to list- that’s why I made this song!

Bullied in school recess,

never win a game of chess,

Fail my classes,

lose my glasses.

There’s so much that could go wrong so quick!

But what if some things aren’t meant to click?

Like I won’t lose my glasses ’cause I have 20/20 vision!

And I won’t fail my classes because I always listen!

As for chess, I’m still doubtful of winning a game.

But I’m getting much better at checkers and yes I know- it’s not the same!

So when things look wrong, turn them upside down and every which way.

Because if you change the way you look at it- your smile gets to stay 🙂

Seeking Positive Interaction

It is far to easy to find ourselves tired of the routines of life.  Our minds gradually grow accustomed to the negative reactions we have associated with our day to day activities.  I have found but one true solution.

We must seek out positive interaction.  When you think about it, doesn’t your day brighten up when you find yourself having a positive interaction with another person?  And maybe that good feeling continues for a few minutes after the interaction.  And then you think back about how awesome it was to feel that way purely from the existence of another person who shared some joy with you that day.  By the time all of this interaction wears off, usually you can have found or created yet another positive interaction.

So why not go out and be the person who creates positive interaction for other people?  You know, from past experience, that the interaction will benefit you just as much.  As my arguments often have come to this same conclusion, it still holds true- there is no downside.  The simplest of scenarios can make another person go off on the rest of their day with a much better outlook.  Making conversation with the cashier at the groceries, shaking the hand of someone new you just met, it can be almost anything!  The benefits come from the very interaction in itself.

Give what you seek- perhaps the favor will be returned.
