“To know when to go away and when to come closer is the key to any lasting relationship.” Doménico Cieri Estrada
Some jive is poison…
Endless gossip about nonsense
I say, yo slick… blow
How we live our lives
Look, it’s our prerogative
Toe the line or… go
A friend shared a decision about a difficult relationship and all the clamoring others made. It brought back memories and prompted this haiku; with a title to make us chill out and smile or relax a bit… You know, humor helps with heavy stuff. Sometimes, relationships flounder or end, even in blog land, and we must respect the shifting winds, put out the fire, or set our sails elsewhere. Music can soothe the hurt; but then we must move forward. More below!
“If we are incapable of finding peace in ourselves, it is pointless to search elsewhere.” Francois de la Rochefoucauld
What’s the difference..?
Relationships are complex
So mind your own yard.
What’s the solution?
If our choice makes us happy
We choose, not You… Peace!
Even though the holidays are a time of good cheer and family time, ironically, they can also trigger conflict, strong memories, and emotions of long forgotten events. Stop wrestling with the past. What is key is to stay true to our source of joy…and as the New Year approaches, make peace with our choices and ignore the naysayers in the peanut gallery. Holding on to the expired is paralyzing… Do what you are supposed to do. Drop it! Peace Y’all!
Happy Holiday Season to All! What relationship issues are you wrestling with? Are you swayed by the opinions of others or you decide? What are your thoughts?

*Please bear with me as I catch up on your blogs and commenting… I’m back on track; albeit at a slow pace. Thank you all for your patience!
Positive Motivation Tip: Our relations change as we change and sometimes they lead us on a new journey. Stay flexible and embrace the changes; good and not so good. It too shall pass.
