Why cast a shadow on others?

My inspiration:

Why is it when people find their answer, they share it with digs at others? People who may well be acting the very way they did not that long ago? And why must EVERYONE then do as they have done?


People should share their journeys
What has worked and inspired
But should not be disappointed
If others do not walk their path

It is a different journey
For each and every one
Comparison can be hurtful
For each and every one

It is sad when a springboard for change
Is from the bones of others
Let it remain personal not general
Quiet that which would burden another

Rejoice in the choices made
That liberate and enhance
But never at the expense of another
Who may not have that chance

Share your journeys, your inspiration
But frame your rationale with care
In a manner that doesn’t hurt or reference another’s
We all walk a journey, don’t be a shadow on their path

I may edit and add to this but felt it was time for another blog entry. Sorry I am so sporadic of late.



I was 46 years old when I begun this blog, female and married with a house full of cats (7). My past is littered with the impact of events that happened when I was a teen. Two loves of my life have been nursing and studying. I just completed my Master of Arts: Media Studies endorsement. My blog will be about the things I think about, that might be better served being written rather than squirreled away in my mind festering. It is the meanderings of my mind as I seek to define myself and my world.
