It Is A Matter Of Attitude!

Facing the Divine,

Recall everything you have done:

Does it put your mind in ease

After you fight and win a hard case?

Does it make you a better being

When you choose to find happiness by getting even?

Does it fit the Goodness’ name

When you earn money and fame

By opting to accuse, hurt, or blame?


I don’t think So!

You can keep rumors from spreading?

Or stop the stock-market from falling?

By being wise, nice, and loving!

You can choose to give instead of receive or gain

And build close bonds with those in pain

By helping, healing, and

Handing them the prizes you win!

It is a matter of attitude,

It has little to do with your aptitude.

No one shall live in vain, together, after

Passing the year of 2009,

We will try as best as we can

Not to live in vain


Please fill in the blank by sharing something you have done in helping others. Thank you!

  3. Hi. JP Blogger’s Mom here. He shared your blog site with me – LOVED your 2010 poem. VERY inspring indeed.

    My submission:

    We will try as best as we can

    Not to live in vain

    by assuming good intentions of others and the positive outcome of any situation — even those with aspects that are very challenging.

    Live well in 2010.

    Sarah Beaty

    1. Dear Sara Beaty:

      How lovely your attitude is, I absolutely agree with your response,
      extraordinarily amazing,

      Yes, when we make positive assumptions about others, we invite friendliness and at least not negative reactions, life is more enjoyable when we appreciate one another for who we are and how uniqueness both challenge us and keep us attracting and admiring…

      I am honored that you and your friend like my blog, welcome, any time and
      let me know your thoughts …:) 🙂

      take care,
