It is better to be an outcast, a stranger in one’s own country, than an outcast from one’s self. It is better to see what is about to befall us and to resist than to retreat into the fantasies embraced by a nation of the blind.

Accentuate the Positive

I have a new resolve. And that is to focus on good things. Some of the stuff I have written in the past has been pretty vective and to those who might have seen it I am very sorry. Nobody is perfect, we are all just trying to get along and make our way through this thing called a human experience. Let us just put it down to a weakness I have to blame others. After all, thinking it is your fault is sometimes just too much on top of the guilt and anger we carry on our backs.
So a new start.
I'm going to try and write about the beautiful things in life, but if I faulter from time to time just put it down to a bad day.

It takes strength to be firm,
It takes courage to be gentle.

It takes strength to stand guard,
It takes courage to let down your guard.

It takes strength to conquer,
It takes courage to surrender.

It takes strength to be certain,
It takes courage to have doubt.

It takes strength to fit in,
It takes courage to stand out.

It takes strength to feel a friend's pain,
It takes courage to feel your own pain.

It takes strength to hide your own pains,
It takes courage to show them.

It takes strength to endure abuse,
It takes courage to stop it.

It takes strength to stand alone,
It takes courage to lean on another.

It takes strength to love,
It takes courage to be loved.

It takes strength to survive,
It takes courage to live.

Keep writing.
