Narrowing My Thoughts To Make It Simple


Eliminate What I Don't Love

Every day we carry unwanted baggage

That sticks to us like those stickies

That were on a bush

As soon as you walked into it

You were covered

They stuck to your clothes

They were prickly and a pain

The memories still haunt me

Even though the last time I seen the plant

I was about twelve

It is time to let them go

I can't erase the memory

What I can do is create new and better memories

If I feel my heart and my joy with passion

So great and beautiful

Like my first love

Eating my favorite foods like my wife's homemade pizza

Having my wife by my side

Throughout my life

Every step of the way

Through the good and the bad

Seeing our cat Charlotte cuddle up next to me

Getting in our car and driving to work and back safely

Both my wife and I having jobs that helps pays our bills

Dreaming bigger dreams

Loving every day in a special way

That brings out the best

Not just in my thoughts

In all my actions now and forever

John Hansen I have been knocking off my bad thoughts for years. I feel like a mobster and they are just one enemy after another. My wife and I love kittens they are so cute. Charlotte would probably not have any part of it. Charlotte loves being the Queen. We can dream and I would love to see pictures anyway. You have such a beautiful home with all the other animals. Are you sure there isn't room for a little more? I love all your writings and stories. I still am having the same trouble getting to post comments. Even if I go from my home page. It is something I have to learn. I go on my feed and it won't let me post. It shoots me to the other site where there is nowhere to post. I am still working on it. Thank you for always commenting and sharing your lovely posts.

What wonderful sentiments, Dream On. Creating new and better memories do drown out the old not so nice ones is a good solution. That way you keep on smiling. It looks like one of our cats, a stray we gave a home to, is about to have kittens. Does Charlotte want a play mate?
