"The words of a wise man's mouth win him favor, but the lips of a fool consume him."

Did you really say that? Did I really say that?  

Words are wonderful, they are one of many ways people communicate, share ideas, express thoughts, lay out plans, sing songs, tell stories and teach.

When used express feelings they can evoke emotions.  The phrase "I love you" often emotes a joy

"I despise that image" often emotes angst. 

As a queer man I hear/read other queer folk using words against each other. Those same words that non queer people use against us.  Why use them?  Remember "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it"?  I do and really try to live by that idea

Let's all (yes that means me, too) think before speaking or acting. 

See how affirming with life and each other can be.  Use the power of words for good

Not Others

It's been six months since the divorce papers were signed.  Since then I've been back to seeking. Call it dating but for me it was/is testing waters. Blindly I forgot that I am full person of worth, just as you are. I re learned someone else idea or opinion of me is not mine.

Today's mantra, say it with me "No one but me defines my happiness, not others"

succseed or not

When Wesley wrote "I don't care what you do... It's how you treat others" {paraphrased} I've tried to live by this.  We're all on different journeys, odd paths, roads less taken.  Someone you know is ill, someone else passed exams with high marks, someone else's bicycle broke down. Another won big $ in lottery.  These do change what's going on in my life, why worry?  
I'm not in competition with you, I'd rather support you on your journey. Hold you when down or celebrate the WOW things.  Bottom line, lets be happy together

We were talking about the new year, the old year, changes and expectations

I don't recall who said it but "Don't look at the hole, look at the whole donut"

That made sense . When I see what's around me and not just the immediate I know that there is more to be aware of, more to enjoy, more to savior

Let's look at what fills us with flavor, that whole donut
