My World and My Life

Updated on April 17, 2017

What I See Is What I Get

On the surface

The view of trees and mountains in the background

A pale sky from far to my left to all the way to my right

The clock reads the time

A digital series of numbers

8:43

I woke up from a deep sleep

My alarm clock loud and clear

Voices that should be music

Annoying sounds disturbing me from my peaceful and restful state

I am not bitter but confused

As my thoughts clarify like butter

I realize now is the right opportunity to get up

Wash my work clothes

A job I put off for the past two days

I have a pair for today

So no immediate rush

Unlike the urge to go the bathroom

That became my main objective

I gather up my clothes by pulling them out of my plastic hamper

Head downstairs to put them in the washer

I hear the beautiful sound of my cellar pump working

With heavy rains last night and a lot of melting snow

Our water table is high

I choose to write a little

Are my writings just a series of endless thoughts on paper

I like to think of it as so much more

I road map to where I am right now at my present moment

Then the next direction my physical body will go

Is my mind separate from my body ?

Already deciding my choices instantly

Like morning oatmeal that mixes so well

Adding the oatmeal and water

Putting it in the microwave for a minute at a time

Watching the oatmeal rise when the beeping stops

Then putting it in for another minute

My wife stirring in her bed

Asking what time is it ?

Everything downstairs o.k. ?

Yep

I have put my cell phone on charge

It was at 72 percent

My phone charger works some of the time

Where the charger plugs into the phone

A plastic piece has broken off

So I raise the wire cord sometimes under envelopes or a cloth

To prop it up

To fix it they wanted one hundred and fifty dollars

I would buy a new phone first

My phone works good otherwise

So I keep using my own home remedies

They work sometimes but not all the time

Each method seems like a good solution

I have tried using duct tape

To pull the pieces in close

Once again my results are random

Life continues to be a series of events

I feel like I am making my own mind up

Deciding for myself

Is it really true ?

As I learn more about life

I also learn more about the way to live my life

As I continue on my journey

I will be observing the world around me

Seeing and feeling how our lives connect

      Jamie Lee Hamamn So much to take in. So much consider. I see only through a small window. One day maybe I will see a great bigger picture. Thank you for reading and sharing.

      I love it. What way to start the day. Ordinary yet extraordinary at the same time. Welcome to another day.

      Cool! Continue to intro or retrospect. It brings results either way.

      Terrielynn I am trying to move in a positive direction and accomplish more things at the same time.So I am reconstructing my day to see what it looks like from a different angle. Thank you for reading and sharing. Do you live each day by the seat of your pants or have to plan out every step?

      Well I used to plan everything because 2 of my 3 children, now grown are special needs. My life has taken a turn and I am now raising my grandchildren. This time around with all the twists and turns most days are by the seat of my pants, with some organizing to keep me sane. Writing has been a big help and an outlet.

      Manatita44 There are only twenty four hours in any one day. After sleeping, eating, getting washed up and getting dressed in the morning adding the most basic of our daily routines. Driving to and from work and working how much time do we have left for ourselves ? Three hours or less. How can we make every minute count? By observing our own routine and see where our time is spent. I have friends that watch four to five hours of t.v. a night. It is wonderful to relax but that leaves no time for creating or exercising. Some people don't care. I enjoy doing many things so I am constantly torn so I enjoy a little of many things. It postpones my long term goals even farther away but I am living a happy life. There is that constant trade off. More money more work less free time. Less work, less money more free time. Thank you for reading and caring.

      Shyron E Shenko My day might not be as exciting as most people but I am always amazed and surprised how the time goes by so fast. I keep trying to squeeze in just a little bit more. I go to bed exhausted and wake up refreshed. Then do it all over again. I hope your day is filled with endless excitement and fun. Thank you so much for reading and commenting.

      Terrielynn 1 I love your response. Any parent that has three children alone is a very busy person. Then with two of your children needing extra attention and now years later being a grandparent you have mastered the art of multi tasking. Now I could learn a lot from you. Writing is wonderful in so many ways. For me it keeps me in touch with thoughts that I wouldn't have time to think about let alone share with other people. I am a people person and I enjoy the constant contrast of ideas from one person to the next. When I think about something and I think it's the greatest thing on earth. Someone else says it's o.k. Or could care less. I am left puzzled and shocked. Life is so splendid. It is so much fun to share and explore our world from our mind. It is in many ways different than the physical world we live in day to day. Thank you again for reading and sharing. I hope we can enrich both our lives with creativity and imagination. Many of my ideas or dreams come out of know where. Then as I explore them I find some other people feel the same way. If we don't act on ideas they just fade away. If we think about them they can grow into something phenomenal. I can't do it by myself. I don't have the time or energy. Thank you for listening. I think a lot. I only get to put a small part of my thoughts on paper. I hope you have a wonderful night. If you find any thought fascinating I would enjoy exploring. Companies create new ideas and inventions all the time. It's really people's ideas and they just run with them.
