some decisions become easier with help

some decisions become easier with help

Are you wondering why you are finding it so hard to make a decision? Things become so hard to do with the constant internal argument of ďon one hand itís a good idea but on the other hand it will change things too muchĒ. When this happens then that can mean that something in your life is causing more stress than usual. It could be the job, or a relationship, or life in general. Then again it could be your health. Depression can cause indecision. Take care of yourself by having a medical check up.

Life had become difficult full of indecision
and I thought about what was wrong
should I change my job?
go on a holiday?
leave you behind?
then I spoke to my doctor
now things look better already
some decisions become easier with help

I wrote and wrote

Of what benefit is it to write about our emotions as they occur? This question is often asked and the answer is quite simple. As your inner world is ravaged by every day problems, when you write down how you feel in that moment it is an expression and release tool which alleviates some of the stress and makes the big picture clearer.

my thoughts became jumbled
my feelings stormed around
what is this about, I thought?
pen in hand I wrote and wrote
anger
self-pity
sadness
all vying for central position
I threw the notes out when finished
inner peace once more

the loss of a love

when a lover says that itís over
the shock and anger is unbelievable
ďitís not true, itís a nightmare, how could it be?Ē
then the bargaining adds to the turmoil
ďcould things have been handled differently
and the loss of a love been avoided?Ē

getting through this phase does not guarantee
that the acceptance of the loss is reached
unfortunately this pain can go on in cycles
nevertheless it does get better
and we move on to happier and more fulfilling times
having hope for that gets us through the worst moments

goodbye Donald Horne

some were invited today to celebrate
the life and works of this great man
he led a life that influenced many
and although he did not suffer fools
his warmth was far greater than most
if your were fortunate enough to
be the recipient of that side of him

as I sat and listened to leaders
speak of their experiences with him
I remembered the warmth he showed me
and that of his wife, Myfanwy, too
goodbye Donald Horne
it was an honour to know you
