My smile will forget me not… A poem of sorts

Sometimes when I fall down
Hard I hit the ground
Yet still I will not frown nor in my tears drown
There in pain is where my true strength is found
Loving who I am in joy and love my heart is bound
Wiping of the dirt smiling as I pick myself up off of the ground
Loving unconditionally learning from falling down
Sometimes I fall down
Hard I hit the ground
Grateful for the inner peace I found
When I wipe of the dirt and get up off the ground
Loving who I am as I learn from falling down
Sometimes even when it seems I have lost
I receive a gift I could have never bought
My beautiful smile will forget me not

I wanted to share a thought or two, as I smile and choose not to be blue. I had a beautiful opportunity that some how has it seems eluded me. I have been changing and becoming a better human being everyday well at least a better one than the day before. I find it intriguing sometimes when things are it would seem in my hands and then they are gone after much effort and having done the best I can.

I was invited to have my art showcased in an art expo, I felt so good about it, I only had to sell 20 tickets, 15 $ tickets. I am in my home town in my home state have at least 100 relatives, 200 friends I grew up with joined a number of local groups on facebook. Had 150

flyers printed and put them on cars to get some tickets sold. In a month of doing what I could short of begging I thought one at least one person would buy a ticket.

I didn’t even sell one!

I have many other things going on that feel so positive. I felt so good about the expo live bands music art of every genre it was an honor to be asked and I am grateful. I am grateful for my family and friends. I am in the end grateful I can still smile.

I am picking my self up wiping off the dirt and smiling at least I can still write and have much to look forward to in the writing world, perhaps speaking and if nothing else inspiring people to see the silver lining in those dark clouds… Love is my greatest gift as it is shared unconditionally with me by the one that created all there is I share that love in return the greatest lesson I have through the many times I have hit the ground so hard in so many ways. I am grateful for everyday a gift of love I have been given to live the life I have been living.

One of the things the ancients taught me I was reminded of today… Take not loss or gain to heart, it is the strength of character within that matters.

Count not on what crops will grow and what they will produce then you will not be dis appointed just plant them and see what grows.

I don’t want to sound whiny so I wont say any more other than even when I am down I still know my smile is found.

Thank you for allowing me to share the thoughts, I appreciate your taking the time to read them and hope you found a smile. I would also like to thank you for being the positive change our world so needs by sharing you love and your smiles making our world a better place for all we share it with. 🙂

Happy Easter! I almost forgot!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • I suppose that was the gift in all of it, I love them all anyway. My family I thought would have been more than enough support and in the end they are, this experience has added to my depth and understanding of what it is to know and be love unconditional. Thank you for sharing your support and the love you share in doing so… I can still buy a ticket and go to the expo so I still in the end get to go.. 🙂

  1. I’ve learned lately to expect the unexpected in expecting…
    as it will surely be emotional either way it turns out…
    so today I expect nothing so I will just enjoy what happens what ever it may be and know
    it is the right “purpose ” of being here today
    so as you I smile 🙂 and write….
    Take Care Joe….You Matter….
    an extra smile or two for you …
    🙂 🙂 🙂
