Mind Dancing – A Short Story

I’m on the subway home.  It’s the rush hour commute.  I close my eyes and the lights come up.  The music tonight is Stevie Wonder’s Superstition and all the seated passengers begin to sway in unison.  My feet slide gracefully down the middle of the subway car and my fingers form jazz hands as my shoulders and arms shimmy up to the sky.  Everyone is up out of their seats spinning in cannon and I burst into song!  My eyes gently open and twinkle as I notice a permanent smile pressed onto my face.

Until tomorrow,

TZB Project 365 (Day 43) – Some Words For You

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there… to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or help you figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be but when you lock eyes with them, you know that they will affect your life in some profound way. And sometimes things happen to you at the time that may seem horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection you realize your potential, strength, will power or heart. Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. Safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless. The people you meet affect your life. The successes and downfalls that you experience can create who you are, and the back experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important ones. If someone hurts you, betrays you or breaks your heart, forgive them because they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart to. If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because they are teaching you to love and open your heart and eyes to little things. Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from it everything that you possibly can, for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, break free and set your sights hight. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you. Create your own life and then go out and live it.

These are not my words but they are great words and I thought to share them with you tonight.

TZB Project 365 (Day 16) – Patience is STILL a Virtue

For the dream job you’re working towards… patience is STILL a virtue. For the live/work balance you strive to achieve…patience is STILL a virtue. For the communication you practice improving upon… patience is STILL a virtue. For all the dollars you keep spending on lottery tickets… patience is STILL a virtue. 🙂 For every mistake you learn a lesson from… patience is STILL a virtue. For all the dreams you keep on dreaming… patience is STILL a virtue.

Keep on keepin’ on,
