There is nothing ugly about this Duck…………..

         OH!!! How the old saying of ” you are an ugly Duck”, really is only just a way for others to be negative of another.

This Duck you see here is as beautiful as beautiful can be, what a tangled web we weave, when we make fun of something that really has such a great life, maybe a bit of jealousy on our parts? I sat and watched this Duck just float around with no worries, no stress and with a care-free life. From time to time it would tip itself with no effort under the water to grab a snack, swim through the water with it’s webbed feet with the greatest of ease, every now and then it would Quack to the other Ducks around it, just to engage in a conversation, yes what a tangled web we weave when we make fun of something, that has a life so simple and care free.

Yes we the people of Mankind are very different from the Duck and very true that we are a product of our own way of life, just as the Duck is of theirs. But to make fun of this Animal and use it to make derogatory remarks of another, is only an excuse and a way to deflect our own pain and shame away from ourselves and on to others, not to mention the fact that we are simply not confident in ourselves or our ability, so we make fun of others to try to make ourselves bigger than we really are.

We to could live our lives as care free as this Duck, okay maybe not within the water? but care free none the less, only we have to live our lives correctly, so as we walk our paths of our journey, we can walk through greener pastures and flat meadows. It don’t have to be Rocket Science, just use more of our common sense, treat each other as we would want to be treated back, when we fall and can’t get back up, we would want a helping hand to be reached out to us, well maybe we should do the reaching first, so Karma will assist us with this hand, when the time comes of our need for it.

Our paths along this journey of life really isn’t that hard, it is us the people that make it hard on ourselves, God created Mankind for us to coincide with each other, not for us to be full of hatred of each other, God’s love is always within us, that warm feeling in our hearts, that isn’t just our blood flowing through it, it is God’s love filling our hearts and when we feel this, we are suppose to share this with all those around us, instead of being selfish with it. or not acknowledging it at all? When we truly share this love, we will find that there is no room for any hatred within this Society and like the Duck, we to can live a care free life, so our paths along this journey of life, will be peaceful as this Duck in the picture.

” Oh what a tangled web we weave, if we only walked this journey correctly, than all our journey’s will be care free and peaceful”

” Quack Quack said the Duck to his Duck mates, as they coincide peacefully together”

” When we live our lives correctly, then all our paths along this journey of life will be peaceful for all”

The lifestyle may be differant but the journey is still the same

The life of this Otter at first glance to us, may seem care free and relaxing, but do we really know how the life of an Otter really is?

Just as we walk our journey through life, the Otter also walks a journey here on Earth, we all are guilty of thinking that we have it harder than the next person, but do we really? You do not know unless you walk in their shoes even if its just for a day, we all have our issues and deal with them in our own way, but when we deal with them in the wrong way, these issues never really go away, they just hide deeper within the core of our being, then when we least expect them, or when something else comes along in our lives, these issues get triggered and all the issues from the present and the past come at us full force.

” We all suffer from a loss, we all suffer some kind of life event, but what is worse is when we become invisible in plain sight”

Anything can trigger any issue, could be as simple as watching a TV show, then the next thing we know, we are flying out of control cause of something from our past, life is real that way as we walk our journey through it, just because we are struggling with issues, it don’t mean the next guy is issue free, it’s just that they are hiding it better, like this Otter looks like its swimming care free, don’t mean it is not thinking where the next meal is coming from, or maybe wondering if the guy taking this picture isn’t going to make him his next meal? every living thing that walks this Earth, is also walking a journey through their lives, with this journey comes issues and troubles, it is how we deal with them that makes our journey what it is.

“Empathy is a key component in dealing with any issue, when we bury or hide our empathy, is when our issues become greater than they really need to be”

Empathy is there within all of us no matter who you are, we just have to acknowledge it so we can move forward stronger on our journey, no matter what kind of issue comes across our path in life, we all have issues of some kind, life isn’t perfect for anybody, it is how we deal with these issues that affect ourselves and others around us, then  without acknowledging empathy we not only make life for ourselves worse, we also make life for those around us just as worse, nobody is care free just that without empathy, we just don’t care.

To care is to empathy, so we then can love anything/everything around us, so without the empathy it is very hard to have any kind of love what so ever for anything that may cross our paths along our journey of life.

What we may think of the Otter swimming care free through the stream, look a little deeper, show more empathy of the Otter and just maybe we can all walk our paths along our journey of life, with strength, happiness and love, not just of ourselves, but for everybody we may encounter along the path we have chosen, it is much easier to show hate or bitterness, than it is to show love, cause when we hate and become bitter we have given up on everything around us, we only walk this journey once, we need to do it right, so as the journey ends we can have dignity not just for ourselves, but for everything we met along our path.

” it is easier to hate and be bitter, than it is to love, cause when we hate and become bitter we have given up on everything around us”
