Holding Daisies

Does your heart try
to please every soul
turn frowns upside down
dry tears and console

Do your eyes see the good
in everything around
in every person you pass
on the streets in your town

If the answer is yes
then you’re quite the friend
you have an abundance of love
to share again and again

Yet, you’re also at risk
to having your heart broken
because not all will agree
with your words spoken

So you do your best
for the common good
and hope all your loving actions
are truly understood

  3. Hi Lauren. I hope this one works!

    For me, this isall about balance.

    While it is, of course, good to be kind, and I like to think I am, there was a time when I was a terrible people pleaser to my detriment.This went deep and I think was about my lack of self worth and lack of confidence. I simply wanted everyone like me. I had no idea back then that kindness extends to ourselves too.

    Now I think the balance has been restored, if not all the time, most of it and I am able at last to put myself irst when it is appropriate.

    1. Hi Chris, your comment came through, but my comments are messed up; need to figure this out! Anyway, I totally understand how you feel and have been there before, too. You’re right, it’s all about balance and I’m glad yours has been restored! HBL ♥ xo

    Reading Kindness brought to mind unconditional love and forgiveness, doing what is right because it is the right thing to do–can’t always please everybody, but I know God is smiling! Susie

I appreciate your thoughts!
