So, today, I listened to some Disney songs, songs particularly that are about wanting more and finding where you belong. I thought to myself that I want more too, I just do not know what that more is, but also I want to write more interestingly, and when I learn to draw and paint, make unique and different art. And now thinking this, it has made me more motivated to write, only I cannot do that now or anytime soon; I have studying to do, but I am trying to write once and a while because writing is good you. A few days ago, I almost submitted a poem that I really rushed on; you know when you finish a poem and think that it is the best thing ever?!
I just really wanted to see some faves and comments, but then when I was typing, it became clear that this poem needed some work; I thought to myself that it would have been embarrassing if I have submitted it. Good thing I used my good judgment; close call!! But for the poem I am working on, somebody faved one of my older poems and she said it inspired positivity to do some art when she was in a bad mood, and that inspired me to alter the name of the poem I am working on and put a little more hopefulness in it, so it is cool how people can inspire, and, gosh, that my work inspired--that it actually had an impact on someone, amazing!!
So, just about an hour ago, I was on a site where in the tab, there was a woman with a rare disease...and seeing it I remember thinking about this song by a girl named Alex Hepburn called "The People Cry
" I thought to myself that, figuratively, people are crying or maybe the world is. It made me think of all the people suffering like that, how there is so much pain and unfairness in this world, and I had a thought that because of that we should all try to be happy with who we are and what we have, I think we owe it to those who are suffering so much worse than we are to try to find some good and have some gratefulness in our lives. I hope I can practice what I preach the next time I think low of myself or my life.
And about a week ago, I read a poem-->www.katsandogz.com/ongiving.ht…
by a man named Kahlil Gibran who I never heard of, but I loved a lot of the poetry I read from him, and when I get time I hope to read more; I think his work is uplifting and inspiring, and his poem about giving makes me want to give more, and do more good and smile. Actually something I have been thinking about is being happy and optimistic and kind; I heard someone say, giving advice, that you should be the most optimistic person you know, and I like that quote a lot.
So, those were just some thoughts I have been having! Good day!!
