Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Off Base

I wouldn't know how to handle serenity if somebody 
handed it to me on a plate.  
Dusty Springfield

Serenity takes work
which seems like a contradiction in terms
But you have to just take a swing at what's bothering you

So, what is messing with your serenity?
See it coming at you?  
Don't stand there and let it fly over home plate!

Take a swing at those thoughts!

Go ahead- take a crack at it

Another annoying email?

Sah- wing, batter, batter, batter


The thought of a coworker who only cares about making his way to the top at your expense?

crack - take that thought and hit it out of the park!

Step in a puddle and get your shoes muddy?

Those you'll have to dry off....

But letting it bug you...nah!

Hit it over the fence!

junk mail

noisy neighbors

to do lists that will not get done

The way the world is looking this week

crack                                                 crack                                          crack

see, isn't that better?
just take a crack at it, and suddenly, you are in the game
And that's poetiquejustis
