I Am Finally Learning To Love Myself

By A Friend on October 22, 2020 / 1,016 views

By A Friend on October 22, 2020 / 1,016 views

It is an amazing feeling, I have never felt something like this. I’ve been realizing so much, just little things.. but they add up. Like, how I went from sleeping 12 hours a day to 10. My water intake has increased from none to about 2 cups daily. I am actually washing my hair and not just standing in the shower. How I don’t rush to grab makeup when I do head out. My appetite is coming back, geez...

By A Friend on October 22, 2020 / 772 views

Every day, I roll out of bed, put my headphones on, and listen to a podcast while walking the same mile-long route around my neighborhood. First thing in the morning. This morning I got from the 22 minutes it took me last week down to 18. My wakeup time is half an hour earlier than it was before and I'm even naturally waking up before my alarm now without making me feel more tired. I feel...

So I'm coming out of the store a few minutes ago, and see this poor homeless gentleman walking on the hot blacktop barefoot. I cant even imagine how hot his feet are, it's 95 degrees out right now. So I don't know why I ask him "Hey man what size are u?” And he says like a 10. So I just gave him my shoes. I've never done that...

The Fall leaves are really starting to change now. It looks like the very trees and mountains have become a canvas painted by God’s loving Hand. The bright, beautiful reds are shining in the sunlight. The out of this world oranges are appearing too. And the yellows are glittering like gold. Some trees have only a few leaves changed. Others are half-way there. But a few are already completely transformed....

By A Friend on October 15, 2020 / 986 views

Over 31 months ago I stumbled upon a video called along the lines of "The Why a 100 miles" by Billy Yang. I remember clicking on it and being moved so much to the point where I told myself that I wanted to run a 100 miles too as it was such a moving video. Dozens of times I tried to lose weight and it got to the point where I truly believed that I would spend the remaining days as obese, I...

One time I was in public and I was standing next to a dad and his two young boys. A man walks by us and stumbles, nearly dropping his things. The two young boys snicker, and their dad stops them immediately. He said something along the lines of, "A man trips and you laugh at him before you help him? What kind of person does something like that?" The two boys got very quiet and...

Bilingual

By A Friend on October 13, 2020 / 756 views

I once read a line in a poem that went, "Love everyone as your own". I related because I grew up with a family of twelve (10 children and parents) and a large, extended family of grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Neighbors were in and out of each others homes at any given hour of any day, for years! Everybody was "family". Italian and French mingled with English; Eastern European...

I picked up my Mom where she lived and drove her to the Courthouse to drop off her mail-in-ballot. After she handed in her ballot, she asked me where she could sit down because she was tired of standing. I told her that there was a church pew type bench right outside the door of the Election Office. When she went to sit down, her legs locked up, making her unable to bend them to sit down. Her legs...

Once, a wealthy man out of pride, drove his luxurious car with full speed. Engrossed with music, he didn't pay any attention to the traffic sign of a curve path. Eventually, he met a severe accident. The car flung into the air and dashed on the road. He was laying down unconscious in a pool of blood. However, with the help of passers-by, he was admitted one of the best hospitals of the...

The note reads: Thanks for taking such good care of our cars of the past couple of years. We could always count on you to ensure our cars were clean inside and out.

I Have Decided

By A Friend on October 08, 2020 / 976 views

By A Friend on October 08, 2020 / 976 views

This is the end. And the beginning. The end of endless self guilt, procrastination, postponing and ignoring the reality, running away and hiding, crying, blaming others. The end of overthiking and not following my dreams. The end of giving a sh*t about other people's opinions. The end of wishing something that is not in my power, and whining over the past or daydreaming about the...

Never Too Soon

By Joseph J. Mazzella on October 06, 2020 / 946 views

It is closing in on my 54th birthday as I write this and I am reminded of a wonderful quote by the writer, Colette: “What a wonderful life I’ve had. I only wish I’d realized it sooner.” I was so blessed to grow up the way I did. I was surrounded by a loving family. I seemed to have all of nature as my playground. I took walks in the woods, went swimming every day during the summer, had...

When I was 22 yrs-old I experienced a neighbor's deep and warm heart. I had been home from college since December, seriously depressed and "lost" after the loss of a long-term relationship. By summertime my mother's neighbor and friend, a woman everyone knew and liked, came to the house and invited me to tea at her home that evening. That night she set out a beautiful tea set (she was British...

Ham saved my life yesterday. He hurt his paw but I'm alive because of his bravery.  I was working on my house where I fell and was critically injured. He ran to me and started howling and crying; he tried to drag me and ripped his foot open. Luckily he got my neighbors attention. I should be dead, but he saved me. Thank you, Ham. You are my best friend. ...

Identity

By A Friend on October 03, 2020 / 848 views

I shared my "identity" with a twin...and until about 9 yrs-old my name was "Twinny". And so was hers! My name was frequently HER name, when someone thought I was her (usually followed by, "Oh, wrong one!"). Every once in awhile I was called my name: Someone would look at me and - lo and behold! - would see ME. But I knew how difficult it was for my siblings, friends and teachers...

I couldn’t have been more than ten or eleven years old. It was a hot, Summer afternoon and I decided to cool off by taking a swim in the river that ran down the hill from our home. The water was cold and my dog jumped in to splash around with me. After a while I grabbed my towel and headed back up to the house. I knew that dinner would be ready soon. I walked in through the enclosed back porch...
