Grey

What is grey when it isn’t a color?

Is it a feeling?

Or how about a space in the middle?

Does it define the undefinable?

and put into place the things that have no place?

Maybe it is a mood?

Or a taste?

It is not appetizing to see on your food.

and can make people walk on eggshells.

A grey life sounds quite grey.

and my hair is starting to turn,

Gray

Unravel

Do you ever make plans just to see them Unravel? You get everything in order and all of the sudden you find yourself picking up pieces from the floor. It seems like nothing you do works out how you want it. Let me tell you something though. What Ever it is, it will only be temporary. Want to know something else? It happens to everyone at some point. The cause? It is called being human. we tend to put a lot of expectation on ourselves and the expectation is much higher than perfection. We were not made to be perfect in any way because that is what makes us unique. We have different experiences that shape us and our character that gives us our individuality which makes each one of us one of a kind.

The beauty of life isn’t that things run like clockwork. It isn’t a flawless existence either. There is beauty in being unique. There is beauty in something that has been unraveled. When you unravel something it can have two meanings. I have already mentioned the first. It means to undo. The second means to take apart to discover, or something that has come undone to reveal a plan or plot. Both are closely related and both can have a positive or negative light. I believe that beauty lies in nakedness. Not just physical nakedness but emotional as well. Being naked in both senses shows you trust the company you are in because you are at your most vulnerable, yet I believe it can be your most powerful moment. You see being naked requires much more than to be naked, it takes courage, trust, and strength. You have the courage to get naked, you trust that no harm will come to you, and you have the strength to keep going in your nakedness.

How does nakedness relate to being unraveled? If you have to take apart something for discovery’s sake, then wouldn’t you get naked to find out who you are?

Happiness

Happiness. Is it something that is reflected off the surface, or does it shine from the inside? Is it something given, or is it earned? Can you achieve it or does happiness find you? Let me tell you that it can be one of these things or all of them. Happiness isn’t confined to one obtainable source, and not everyone is lucky enough to stumble upon it, but there is something that everyone can do to provide it to someone else.

Happiness can be generated by ourselves by what we achieve, and the gifts we give. It can come as a realization of contentment or in pursuit of your dreams. It can come from a spouse, a friend, a child, or even an enemy. It can come from a game, a job, a place, a car or any other object, but it isn’t where it comes from that matters. What matters is where it goes.

Lives are changed by happiness. When we are happy we feel like we are on top of the world, that nothing can bring us down, that we are Champions. We are on a euphoric high that can be very contagious. Happiness is something that we all should strive to share, to create. We do have to be careful though because happiness can consume, and cripple. If we let someone else’s happiness get in the way of our own, we start to lose our own happiness. We have to know when enough is enough and when to focus on ourselves. Happiness requires balance.

Cusp

The Cusp is transitional in nature.

It rides the fence between two opinions.

It is the point right before a decision is made to change direction.

It is the top of the roller coaster before the first drop.

It can be the height of excitement,

and the source of anxiety.

Being on it can leave you in suspense,

and for some it means resolution to a past.

Some break through it,

Some fall short.

All have been at some point

on the cusp.
