A Jolly old Fellow………

See the source image

Twas the night before Christmas and throughout the house not a peep was heard, for we all wait on the arrival of this joyful guy in the bright red suit. Santa Claus goes about his business as quiet as a church mouse, within the walls of the church, as come the rise of the morning sun, this Jolly old Fellow disappears for yet another year.

This merry old gentleman really does not have to disappear for another, as all his traits lives within us all, so we can share them with each other. Santa Claus loves to give and share, which are two of the traits that is within all of us. now as Santa comes along as we sleep, we all can totally give and share, as all we have to do is, totally feel the warmth of the love within each of us so then just like Santa, we as well can quietly spread our love within, with each other and not just one time a year, but everyday of every year, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Twas the night before Christmas, before all the children get tucked in to bed, they work on their letter to Santa and leave him some snacks on the table with the letter, then as they lay to sleep, they dream of Santa leaving all on their list, underneath the big Christmas tree for them to wake up to. Santa loves reading all the notes by the little children, almost more than enough of him eating all the plates put together by the children, as his tummy might give away.

Santa Claus…..Saint Nick……The Big Guy……. There are many names for the guy who brings us all much joy, a guy for which gives us all so much and never asks for anything in return. Some may say he is not real, but how can that be, when a big piece of him is deep within the hearts and souls of us all. Oh! Santa……. How though art though, you big jolly fellow, who brings smiles too many, even if they are a sleep when you show up.

Twas the night before Christmas, not a peep was stirring, not even the dog nipping into the chilly air, one of the quietest nights of the year, as we leave midnight mass, for the journey home, to get all tucked in, for the big jolly guy, to come spreading his love and sharing ways with us all. For a big guy, he sure does move around quietly, softly and without a peep himself.

” Oh Holy night, the best Christmas song that best describes………… Twas the night before Christmas”

” Silent night of the night before Christmas, even for all as we wait for the joyful Christmas day”

” Merry Christmas to all as we all bring the joy and peace of Christmas, to all the days of the year, each and every year during this magical time of year”

Change a few words, for a new spin…….

” You walk this journey of life, by how you live, why you live and in the manner in which you live”

*** BowlingChef/Stuart Scott***

 

 

This quote by the late Stuart Scott is such a great quote, as you can change a few words, to have it spin a whole new direction. Now when Stuart Scott said this quote at the ESPY awards before he had passed, he was talking about his fight of the dreaded disease Cancer, which this disease has struck so many and all of us have known, or has had a family member be taken by this disease. With this quote you can change a few words and spin the meaning of the quote in a whole new light, which makes this quote one of the best quotes of all time, since the first day of the spoken word.

Now just like anything as we walk our paths of this journey and especially now within this Society, Words are a very powerful tool and words can hurt worse than any kind of physical abuse. Some among us, like those within the media world, make it their job to take the words of others and spin them in a way, that not only fits into their drama full agendas, but will control the rest of us in believing anything they say or write? When they report on a topic, they only will bring to us half of the truth and spin the rest, to make a mountain out of a mole hill, when they dislike the views of an elected official, they will spin their words in a different way, to make them seem evil to the rest of us, to simply try to bring them down, simply because they don’t like them. These types of media agencies think they have mastered the art of the spoken word, but when we look deeply into what we see, when we see through their conspiracy theories, now they look as stupid as their made up words, but their arrogant ways and their arrogant views, will have them so lost within the clouds of their judgments, that they will never see clearly along their paths of their so called journey.

Throughout this Society we have taken the spoken word, to heights that can and will hurt us all deeply, in some cases you have one word with multiple meanings and if you say that word to the wrong party, now they become offended over a simple word? Then you have some among us that have made it their job, to take a spoken word and spin it in a way that will make the one who spoke it, look nothing but evil to the rest of us? Words can be taken out of context and be spun in ways of untruths and non realities, the simple reason for all the misuse of words is, we have become so arrogant toward one another, that we will think nothing to hurt each other with our spoken words.

Words come out of each of our mouths each and every day throughout this journey of life, but in this Society of Political Correction, we have taken something as simple as the spoken word  and spun it in ways, that can hurt us all so deeply, not too mention make us all look evil full of hate? This is not of who we truly are, who we truly are is, one of love, compassion, empathy and kindness, these are the traits that bring us peace and joy, but in the eyes of the media groups, this is not what sells print or their so called news, only drama does that, so they spin the spoken word in any way they can, to sell their agendas to the rest of us, as they live their exotic lifestyles, while the rest of us struggle to walk our paths of this journey of life.

When something as simple as the spoken word now controls of who we are, because of a few that only see greed in their eyes, instead of seeing the love and compassion within us all, then we of this Society have a huge problem we need to fix, so we can all truly heel and get back to truly of who we are, without putting up this front of, someone we truly are not. This will help us all not only be true to ourselves, but be true to each other, so when we speak our words, they won’t be spun in ways of, untruths and unreality. Then we all can walk our paths of this journey in the peace and joy, that Jesus showed us, on his journey here with us.

 

” Words are spoken they don’t magically appear on the print we read, someone puts them there to spin more drama, instead of reality”

” Quotes can inspire as well as lead us into greatness, like this quote being so good that it can bring us to wherever we want to spin it just by changing a few words”

” The spoken word can be spun in any way you like, just that a lot of those ways only breed hatred and evil, bringing pain and hurt to us all”

” Words come out of all our mouths and they can also bring much pain and hurt when we twist around our words we speak”

 

 

 

 

 

Being Humble is totally within us all

” I tell you, the latter went home justified, not the former, for whoever exalts himself will be humbled and the one who Humbles  himself will be exalted”

 

*** LK 18:14

 

The stream flows over it’s obstacle creating a small falls, as the water becomes Humbled and keeps flowing along its path. We also over come obstacles as we walk our paths of this journey through life, but somewhere over the obstacle we lose who we truly are and our humbleness becomes lost deep within our soul, then as we continue over the obstacle without being Humble, we will never be Exalted for our actions moving forward.

To truly be Humbled you must never compare yourself toward others nor, put yourself above anyone as well, when you simply walk your path to the best of your ability, without comparing or putting yourself above, you will find that you will be exalted and Good will surround you, as Jesus will notice and without telling you, he will help you be Humbled and exalted along your path of this journey.

We the People as we walk our paths, are the ones that bring the drama to our lives, simply by the way of our actions toward one another, When we hurt real pain, instead of understanding the why and where of the pain, we will dump it on each other, for one way to escape the clutches of the pain and then bury within ourselves, our true selves, for a way to move forward in this journey, with no further pain and when we do this, we then lose the ability to be humble and then we can’t be exalted from anything.

When we do our jobs to the best of our ability and when we practice our craft, we then get really good at what we do, then others around us will either become jealous, as they try to be like you and fail, or they will take notice and show you much respect. When we become jealous is only because we have given up and don’t want to work as hard with the practice, as we never give up then we learn that we to can be as good, but to be Humble we must never compare, because you may have two people working on the same craft, but when you compare you will never be Humble, then never get exalted for what you do.

There may seem to be so much within this journey of life, but seriously it is all within us and the ability comes down to how we walk our paths, or how we never give up, so we then can walk with confidence and be better and stronger moving forward. When we are Humbled within our lives, then the exalted part comes in the way of, us walking our paths peacefully, while being happy throughout this journey of life.

 

” We the People are the ones bringing the drama into this Society with our actions and through the drama we will never become humbled or exalted on anything”

” When we work hard through the practice, we then can get good at our craft and through the good comes being Humble and exalted leaving us with confidence”

” Tom Brady is very good at his craft and the hard work has given him respect and dignity throughout, while he stays humble and is exalted by those around him”

 

Change is everywhere around us

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” Change comes to us in many ways, it is we the people that resist the change simply because we are afraid to tackle anything different in our lives”

 

You see the Sunset in this picture, at first glance you say ” how beautiful”, but what we tend to forget is, with each passing Sunset there is change within each, every second of the time the sun finally comes to rest for the day and gives way to the night sky.

There is so much change going on around us that it is very easy to lose track of it all, some of the change may be difficult and is what scares the Heck out of us, but most of the change is suttle and because of the hard change, forces us to ignore because of the fear factor. Change is good for all when handled correctly, it is when we don’t understand the change and when we fear the change, that we then let the fear of the change stir us in the wrong direction.

” Change is good when we embrace it and understand it, so we can move forward better and stronger”

Change………. When it comes to a big election like the President race of 2016, you have to actually put some work in, research everything and all the Candidates, so you can make the right change for the better of ourselves and those around us. True both these Candidates scares the Hell out of us all, but there is one that scares us most and one that scares us least, that is for each of us to decide? First you have one that is a Businessman and not a Politician, that says what he wants to say and don’t care who he offends? the other is a career Politician that has come accustomed to lying and quite frankly, I think she doesn’t even realize of the lies she tells? Forget about the two Candidates and lets get to this Election, this is the biggest election of my lifetime so far with the stakes being, we the people going from United States of America, or just America? The United States of America has gone through some huge changes throughout my lifetime, but none bigger than what could happen if we the people elect the wrong Person to run this Country, which makes it even that much more important for us to show up at the voting booths and not just show up, but show up with a well informed decision of who we are voting for.

This Election is all about the the Establishments of both parties versus the blue collar, hard working American, the ones that actually run this Country with our blood, sweat and tears, but over the years the Establishments has created this big Government and bleeding us dry, for their own Personal gain. This is the greatest Country on this Planet and our Veterans of the past and present, work very hard for us to be free to do as we want, but the Establishment don’t want to recognize them and they leave them in the cold, I say ” screw the establishments”, let’s get back back to respecting the men and woman who serve and have served and fought hard, so we can be free to do as we do within this great Country. America is the greatest Country on this Planet and can certainly become great again, as we the people have a very big decision to make on November 8th. Who do we want to lead us into prosperity? A pathological liar, or a Businessman that tells it like it is? The choice is ours to make and we need to make a well informed decision, that not only will affect ourselves, but that will affect all that is around us.

Now the Liberal bias Media will do what ever they can to influence our vote and that also includes, lying to us and feeding us either half stories, or stories that are totally false and bias for their agenda. Then you have others within a campaign that will stop at nothing, to demean or make their opponent look completely of someone they are not? We the hard working blue collar worker and voter, have to be smarter and look deeply into all the crap, sift through the garbage, so we then can make a good well informed decision, on who we want to vote for, so our Candidate can lead us into prosperity and make America great once again, instead of selling our Country out right from under our feet. This is America and we all walk our own paths we choose, but the journey through life is the same for each of us, do we want the journey to be full of bumps that will bruise us, or do we want the journey to be, smooth so we all can live in peace and be happy? The decision is our to make, so lets make a well informed decision, vote for the right Candidate, so we all can walk our paths through this journey of life in peace and be happy everyday of our existence.

 

” The Establishments are a group of people that only have “their” interests in mind and only do whatever they need for their own Personal gain”

” America is a great country and a great place to live, which we owe our Veterans of the past and present simply by showing them respect and taking care of them for taking care of us”

” Change is along all our paths of this journey, it is up to us, to embrace it and understand it so we can be better and stronger moving forward”

 

Going with the flow……..

 

Going with the flow out on the lake on a windy day, you can see the scene stays the same and as you get closer into shore, from the waves and the wind driving you, you then get into a predicament that forces you into scrambling to keep from hitting the obstacles under the water, or becoming stranded because you went over a rock which put a whole in the bottom of the boat. Going with the flow may work for a short time, but eventually there comes a time, you need to get out of the flow and put in the work, so you can find a better flow, that helps you become better and stronger moving forward.

This theory is so true as we walk our paths through this journey of life, when we go with the flow within our Society, we then get caught up within a comfortable rut, that we dig ourselves into a hole and become stranded along our paths of this journey. When we become stranded in our comfortable rut, it then becomes very hard to dig out of the rut, some may give up as they become lazy and tired from the digging, some never give up and get out of the rut, then work even harder to find a better flow that helps them flourish moving forward, none the less as you just go with the flow, eventually you need to change the flow, so you can keep moving forward on your path of this journey, then through the change we learn we can be better and stronger as we walk our path through this journey of life.

 

” The theory of life can come to us in many different ways, when it does we have to be willing to change so the theory can work in our favor”

” Going with the flow on a windy day on the water, can eventually lead to a rough day on the water”

” Going with the flow in life will lead to digging into a comfortable rut, which keeps you from moving forward to become better and stronger”

 

A Society lost within the clouds of judgment

 

This Society for which we all walk our paths of this journey through life, is so clouded within our judgments, that none of us can simply move forward without getting in each others way. Seriously now!!! I have never in my lifetime seen a Presidential Election, as dirty as this one, with all the mud slinging and accusations. come on people!!! Lets start using that Common Sense that we all have within us, that also has become lost within the clouds.

“My Theory is, if you can’t get elected to any office on your merits, than you should not be running for that office, or any office for that matter”.

The last eight years has been nothing but broken promises, okay there might of been some good, but the bad out weighs the good, but yet our so called leaders are selling it to us as it has been great the past eight years? Now you have one Candidate that all she wants is to become the first Woman President and will do what ever it takes to achieve that. Then you have another Candidate that is not a Politician, but a very successful Business man, now the way this Country has gone over the last eight years, I am leaning toward the Business man? Simply because maybe we should treat this Country as a Business and really fix the economy, so we can reduce the deficit and bring jobs back to the American worker once again, not too mention rebuilding our depleted Military from the past eight years.

I totally understand our Country was based on Immigration, but Immigration done the right way and if the word ” Illegal” is before the word ” Immigration”, than you are doing something wrong.  I am totally for shutting the borders for a short time, fix what we need to fix, then reopen the right way, so we all can move forward stronger and better than before. When I say fix what needs to be fixed, that includes keeping companies from leaving this Country and stranding thousands or even millions without a job, all because the company wants cheaper labor in another country? Plus that Company then sells their product back here, for even more money than it is really worth, only a true Businessman who knows how too close a deal and can fix this as he knows just how to achieve this problem.

This whole Country is going to Hell in a hand basket and quicker then we care to acknowledge, if we don’t do anything Now. This country of America is a far different country from the time I was a young boy and the direction it is going is backwards instead of forward. The biggest reason for this you ask? We don’t use our Common Sense anymore, or should I say it is not very Common anymore? Greed is also a big part in the direction of this country and the ones that are suppose to be leading us, have totally forgotten about the ones who voted them into office, so they can become even more Greedier, by robbing all us working folk, of all our hard earned money.

All our Veterans from years past are turning in their graves, as the Country they fought so hard for, so we all can be free, is quickly becoming not so free anymore, unless your willing to play the same power game, that is going on right now within the capital of this country in Washington D.C. All our so called leaders are bought and paid for by the Special Interest groups, so they can call the shots, instead of us the people, that vote these leaders into office, another reason why we need a successful Businessman as President, cause he is bought and paid for by no one and can help turn this Country around and moving forward in the right direction.

You also have a very Liberal Biased Media and they will do and say anything, just to get their Candidate elected and that includes all the negative/Hate ads that we see on our television screens, but don’t get me started on this topic as this will be for another blog, because these media types won’t stop at anything and that includes printing or saying facts that are untrue, then hide behind the first amendment? What makes them mightier than the hard working Individuals that, actually run this country with their blood, sweat and tears?    Come on people………. It’s time to wake up, smell the coffee of reality and get back to the Common Sense that is within us all, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

 

” A Presidential election like no other, full of hatred and mud slinging, instead of the facts to get a country back on the tracks of prosperity”

” Common Sense is just that common……. but nobody uses what is within us all anymore”

” Liberal Biased Media needs to be called out for what they are and start being equally fair right down the middle once again”

” If you can’t publish the facts then you really shouldn’t publish anything anymore”

 

The Mountain top experience without climbing a Mountain

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” And one of them realizing he had been healed, glorifying God in a loud voice, and he fell at the feet of Jesus then thanked him, he was a Samaritan”

** LK 17:15-16

 

You really don’t have to hike up a mountain in order to have a mountain top experience, this experience is the rush of adrenaline you get when you reach the summit of any mountain, feeling the high of the hard work you just went through, to get to the summit, that feeling of Wow!!! I made it through the rigorous  trail to get to this point of true beauty. This journey of life is very similar in the way that, we all walk our paths through this journey of life, we all go through our highs as well as our lows, but when we do it correctly, we all can feel the Wow!!! of a journey well walked.

The Samaritan is of someone that we today within this Society, think of being low man on the totem pole, the one that really shouldn’t have a say in anything, but it is the hard work of this Samaritan that pushes this Society forward, so we all can walk our paths through this journey of life with great strength, to be better from Society to Society. The Samaritan as they work hard in their lives are the ones that make their mistakes. then learn from their mistakes and continue moving forward, while still others become someone they truly are not and then think that they themselves are more powerful than the rest. We all make mistakes, but when we let them stock pile, without fixing them as they come, that is when we become someone we are not, while moving forward and then regret later of our faults. To truly have that Mountain top experience, we first have to admit our faults, admit we are Human and have the faith in Jesus, so he can forgive us of our faults, so we can truly move forward better and stronger.

This journey of life has its moments of joy and sadness, it also will reward those who walk their journey correctly and that reward comes in the way of, The Wow factor you feel as you reach the top of the mountain, without even hiking at all. This Wow feeling  is of, a feeling you have when you have been healed of all your wrongs, so you then drop to your knees, while thanking Jesus for all he has done for you and has forgave you for all you have done. This Wow feeling and the mountain top experience, it can not happen if we don’t have complete faith in Jesus as well as ourselves, so then the hope can be the reward that, keeps us stronger and better.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, a lot of times we stray from truly walking our paths as we become fragile from all the bumps and bruises along the path. This is when we become some one we truly are not, as we move forward hiding the real pain and hurt that has come to us, through this hidden pain and hurt, keeps us from achieving that mountain top experience and then regretting it later, through our regrets we will never be Wowed from anything, let alone having that mountain top experience, that helps us all heal from truly walking our paths along this journey of life, while we truly never lose who we are and become better and stronger moving forward.

 

” Regret is something we all go through, but to get through the regret correctly is something we all don’t do correctly”

” The mountain top experience is a feeling we all have within, when Jesus forgives us from our wrongs, so we then can move forward better and stronger”

 

” The Samaritan is the worker that works hard and helps pushing everybody around them to be better, the one that fixes their wrongs quietly and moves forward with their actions speaking loudly”

 

Change will come to all of us along our Journey of Life…..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” This is a post that I wrote a couple years ago and I chose this pix as it used to be home of the Old Man of the Mountain in New Hampshire. With a few tweaks this post shows that through change, we all can walk our paths peacefully, while being happy along our journey of life”

” This journey through life really is too short to have it bring us great pain and sorrow, but through change and done correctly, we all can walk our paths in peace and be stronger and better moving forward”

 

 

Our Journey of life is far different, than any journey or trek we take, in a vacation sort of way, a vacation is a journey that we set up and control, so we can get away from reality for a bit and unwind to also relax, a Journey we all walk through life, is reality and a journey that we can’t control where we go, only walk the journey correctly, in order to make it a safe and happy passage.

Throughout this Journey of life, we as Humans go through many changes, these changes comes to us in many different ways, these changes can also be very ugly for us if we let them control our being, as these changes come to us, yes we will not accept them at first, that is perfectly okay, it is a natural feeling within all of us, when we are resistant to these changes, is when we become something we truly are not, if God thought these changes were bad for us, he wouldn’t allow these changes to come to us along our journey of life.

Change is good for the soul, if we handle them correctly and learn to accept, instead of not acknowledging that they happen for a reason, to help us be better and stronger moving forward on our paths of our journey of life.

The Journey of our vacations, is very different than our journey of life, the journey of life is all our realities and how we walk our paths through life, these changes come to us at the cross roads of our paths, God puts them there for us to see them, but it is up to us to truly see them and to acknowledge them, so we can accept them and make our journeys better and stronger moving forward, there is so much more to life than all the materialistic things we acquire, it is the spiritualistic things that drive us to walking our journey being safe, while moving forward with the strength to be better, not just for ourselves, but for all we meet along our journey.

When change comes to us, it happens in many ways, sometimes change is needed and sometimes it is unwanted, but what makes all change very ugly, is us as Humans not accepting it and resisting it, which makes us become bitter and become something/someone we are truly not.

Change is something we all go through along our journeys, change could be something very simple to us, like not putting sugar in your coffee, or other change can be very difficult, like a lifestyle change, which the latter is usually the one most likely to be resisted, but when we  resist this change, is the start of us moving forward being someone we are not and not truly  being ourselves, another type of change we deal with is, when a life event happens to us, these events come to us in many ways, just like change comes to us,  these events can be very emotional and painful to us as well, which is when we change ourselves in ways that truly isn’t who we are, change will happen to all of us as we walk our paths, it is part of the journey that God try’s to guide us into the right direction, it is how we deal with the change that makes us into who we are, the choice is always given to us by God, we can either accept or resist the change, but each will either make our paths along our journey of life be very emotional and much pain, or we can be in peace to be better and stronger moving forward.

” Change is a part of life, we can accept or resist, then either way we have to live with our choice, by becoming someone we truly are not”

” Change can be ugly, or change can be beautiful, the choice is ours to make as we walk our journeys of life”

” God puts this change at our crossroads of our paths, the choice is ours to accept or resist all these changes”

True Primitive camping

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” Claim your own little Island for a week of true primitive camping, for a real adventure of rest and relaxation”

 

Your own piece of solitude for a short time to enjoy and see the true beauty all around you everyday. Throughout the Northern woods of Maine there are plenty of different sizes of lakes and ponds, all over these bodies of water there are different size islands everywhere, some already have camps on them, but there are still a lot that are uninhabited. All that is needed is a sense of adventure and a boat to gather your gear, for a great week of true primitive camping.

No electricity, no running water and make your heat by building a campfire, some may say no way? But yet there are others that will jump at the chance to completely get away from all the crap that surrounds them within this Society. Once you get to your Island, search for the perfect spot to set your camp, then set up camp and gather enough wood for the fire and chop the bigger logs into smaller logs for the fire to burn for hours, the rest is just maintaining, while you completely enjoy your home away from home, or your own piece of peace and serenity.

As you wake at the break of dawn, you can put a pot of coffee on the fire, place a camp chair on the side of the island that gives you the best vantage point, for viewing a beautiful sunrise and watch the sun wake up with you. Maybe if your lucky enough see a Moose or a Bear by the waters edge, fishing for their breakfast, or even bathing in the water? Then as you look out into the lake, maybe even seeing an Eagle diving into the water for its breakfast as well, this is what true beauty really is and why God created this Earth, so we can all enjoy it’s true beauty every where we turn.

Throughout this Society we get so engulfed within the crap and the working to make ends meet, that we totally forget about the real true beauty that is around us. We forget how to truly live and explore deeply what is around us, simply because through the crap brings us pain and hurt, which has us staying within a comfortable rut that we know, in order to keep the pain and hurt from growing bigger and hurting even more than we like. As we get stuck within the rut we then throw away the ladder, so we can’t get out to explore the true beauty that is around us.

Now as we explore our little Island and become familiar with our surroundings, we notice that the sun has moved across the sky, to the other side of the island. We then go grab the camp chair and place it at the best vantage point to see a beautiful sunset and have our breathe taken away, from the beauty before our eyes. As the sun sets we then turn to the campfire and stoke it for the cool night that has come upon us. Now as we sit by the fire staring deeply into the glowing coals, every now and then we look to the night sky and look at all the stars throughout the sky, this is a sight we can not see in the city lights back home, so we now see something very different as we now try to name the stars and planets that we do know. While sitting beneath the night sky and listening to the quietness all around us, we suddenly hear a few Loons chatting to each other, maybe a few coyotes howling to the moon, or even some Owl’s chatting to each other from one side of the lake to the other? the beauty of true primitive camping is upon us and as we sit back in our chairs in front of the fire, we totally become relaxed and fully enjoy our own little Island, which we only thought before within our dreams, sleeping in our beds within our homes.

 

” An Island of dreams can truly become a reality if we want it to and when we are ready to explore and take on some true primitive camping”

” Some may say no to the world of true primitive camping, but they truly don’t know what they are missing”

” To us primitive camping is a lot of hard work, but for the ones like the Native American Indian, it was a way of life and survival”

 

Depression… the hidden disease

IMG_20150104_124946

 

This quote by the late Stuart Scott can be used in so many different ways, if you change the word Cancer and replace it with the word Depression, it works just as well, It shows that no matter the circumstance of which what your going through, there are similarities that helps us walk our paths through this journey of life.

When we mention the word Depression today, we automatically think of someone being Mental and needs to be in a Facility and locked down? On the contrary, Depression affects around 350,000,000 million people within this Society and most are what is known as, ” highly functional Depression”. When you stop at the Barista for your morning coffee and are waited on by the cashier, you don’t know that this person struggled to get out of bed and with headaches daily? But yet they chat with you on a TV show from last night, they look as normal as normal we think is? The late Robin Williams is prime example, as he used comedy to escape the pain of Depression.

This type of Depression affects more people in this Society than we care to acknowledge. Depression comes from a chemical in balance in the brain and we are all subject to it, as it does not discriminate. You could look on the outside as very successful, with plenty of money and a very good job, the big house with a family and all the toys, but yet you suffer in private with major headaches, troubles with keeping it together and a low energy level that sometimes has you struggling to get out of bed in the morning.

Depression is the silent killer, only because we suffer in private and we don’t want others to know that we are less than they think we are. It could be some one close to you like a family member, a close friend or a co worker, you don’t know who could be suffering from this silent killer, which is why we need to always show our empathy, that is within us all, with each other, as just maybe we can help without knowing, someone get through their day, much easier than other days they may have.

Just because someone on the outside looks very well off and is always going on a trip, or looks like they have a lot of money, doesn’t mean they are not struggling on the inside, you are not inside them and can’t determine just by looking. They could be a very high Functioning person with Depression? For us to judge them and alienate them cause they are not like us, is wrong simply cause you just don’t know. There is to much of this judging going on around us and reason why we see all this ugliness within our Society today. If we could only just get a long, show more empathy of each other, just maybe we all could walk our paths of this journey through life in peace and within true happiness everyday of our existence.

 

Depression is the silent killer, because the ones who suffer are afraid to come our as being different then the rest of us”

” As a high functioning person suffering Depression, you don’t have to hide behind closed doors anymore”

” The next time you go to the Barista, don’t just order your coffee, share your empathy as you might just be helping someone out”
