55 Fiction

The door opened only a few inches.

I pushed harder and something cracked with a snap.

Things were spilling out of the open drawers.

I couldn’t walk without stepping on clothes, charging cables, cans, shoes…

I could close the door and keep out.

But No… Today, I will not wait for mom to clean up.

A Word to the Wise

SERTS

Seize the moment and let yourself be impulsive now and then. Say yes to possibilities. Step out of your comfort zone and try new things.

55 Fiction

I cradle her in my arms.

She stirs and finds me looking down at her.

Her eyes shine with tears of what may have been joy, or gratitude.

“I’m so glad you’re here,” she slurs.

I put my finger on her lips to hush her.

I know exactly how it feels to plead for help.

A Word to the Wise

I cannot do all the good that the world needs. But the world needs all the good that I can do.

Xenial means to be hospitable and giving especially to strangers and people whom you don’t know. Hold the door for strangers. Give someone hand carrying their groceries. Assist a elderly person walking across the street. Carrying out acts of kindness to people you don’t know will strengthen your positive outlook on life. Is there a greater feeling than helping someone who is need?

His heart skipped a beat.

He couldn’t get his fill of looking.

He knew it was not right, it could not be.

Head held low and moving on would be best.

Still his heart was in denial.

His head, however knew that he must turn down the sinfully rich brownie that was calling his name.

A Word to the Wise

55 Fiction

“When will you learn that a bed is not the place to keep a wet towel.”

“Can you stop blaming me for everything?”

They rode on waves of pot-shots and barbs and floated it away but a new wave returned soon after.

With welled up eyes she remembers all those things that don’t happen anymore!

A Word to the Wise

Sometimes you will never know the value of something,until it becomes a memory.

Live a purposeful life. Seek meaning in what you are doing.  Not only value your life but value the life of everyone around- loved ones and strangers. Valuing others makes our self-value soar.

55 Fiction

His opponent drew his leg back and delivered a powerful kick to the ribs.

He howled in torment but still charged at his adversary who was quick. 

Another high impact hit bruised and knocked one of his teeth out.

Our eyes met and it gave him a glimmer of hope in this otherwise tragic situation.

A Word to the Wise

Unconditional

When you love or support someone unconditionally, it means without any strings attached. Do good deeds for others because you genuinely want to spread joy. But more often than not, we hold ourselves back. Love and support by looking beyond people’s faults, struggles, and whatever pain and hardships that life may bring. Love and support unconditionally for the happiness and inner peace it brings us all

55 Fiction

I saw her standing there.

Our eyes held each other’s gaze.

In two strides, I closed the gap between us.

Her eyes sparkled as I caressed the soft strands of her hair.

Anticipation flowed through her body.

As I picked up the keys, she wagged her tail happily. It was time for the evening walk.

A Word to the Wise

I love the kind of hugs where you can physically feel the sadness leaving your body.

Human touch is as vital to our health and happiness as food or water.The skin is the largest organ of the body. Nourish and feed it with loving touch. Every one is soothed and comforted by touch. When you touch a body, you touch the whole person, the intellect, the spirit, and the emotions.

55 Fiction

Sure, she knew the drill.

But nobody had prepared her for that moment.

She couldn’t get her fill of looking.

Tears flowed unabashedly; joy and pain rushed out.

Waves of happiness were beginning to settle over her.

Just then they took him from her and placed him into the waiting arms of the intended mother!

A Word to the Wise

Happiness doesn't come through selfishness, but through selflessness. Everything you do comes back around.

You don’t lose yourself being selfless—you find yourself.” –  Seth Adam Smith

Acting selflessly isn’t easy. You need to have the desire to be selfless and believe me, you won’t regret it. The self satisfaction that comes from trying to make the world a better place will actually make you into a happier person.

R

55 Fiction

In a flash of a second, her world came tumbling down.

The circumstances were overwhelming and it was easy to sit on a heap of disappointment and despair.

‘How long would this last’, she mused.

She found her back up against the wall

And she found it to be a good place to push off.

A Word to the Wise

You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated.

Life has its ups and downs. Adversities do knock on everybody’s doors. How do you respond to them? Do they bog you down or do you persevere? In tough and trying times one does experience negative thoughts and emotions but do bounce back. Don’t allow them to derail them from your happy life.

Quietness #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z

My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Cultivating Happiness. Today, Q is for Quietness.

Q

55 Fiction

Away from the concrete jungle, away from the clamour of cars and the noise…

I listen to the lapping sounds as the water meets the bank.

The soft breeze, the curious creaks and hums mingles with the rustling grass.

In this quietness, a few tears line my eyes as I talk to your memory again!

A Word to the Wise

It is only alone, truly alone that one bursts apart, springs forth.

When the distractions of daily life deplete our energy, the first thing we eliminate is the thing we need the most: quiet, reflective time. Time to dream, time to contemplate what’s working and what’s not, so that we can make changes for the better. Just like the physical body needs breaks from time to time, the mind needs breaks as well. Quiet the mind and just be.
