ABYSS OF THOUGHTS

Atelophobia

It has a name.

Atelophobia.

Why do some of us 

strive for perfectionism?

Were we born with this,

or taught to behave this way?

It forces unattainable 

and unrealistic goals

upon us.

Once these goals aren’t reached,

we fall down far,

some into depression.

We should try to be our best,

our best within our capabilities,

and not some else’s version of perfect.

Our own attainable goals

will bring us contentment

and happiness.

WINTER SUN

sundxwn: Gullfoss in Winter Sun by Peter Negatsch

The winter sun is rising.

Releasing its stored energy.

Cracking the frozen ground wide open.

Creating a dark hole.

A hole reaching down

into emptiness.

No lights.

No sounds.

Only nothingness.

The sun feels good

on my face.

The snow feels less cold

and forbidding.

The light is calling me

away from the darkness.

I will listen to it.

I will go toward it.

Away from the gaping hole

and empty dreams.

To the light of a new day.

Good morning world.

ONE STEP AT A TIME

Our problems can feel insurmountable at times.

Obstacles too big to overcome.

Life can be one long battle.

But if we persevere we can reach our goals.

If we do it one step at a time,

we can fulfill our dreams

and even find new ones.

DOES A POOL BRING HAPPINESS?

Do you believe life would be better<br /> if you had a mansion with a large pool?<br /> If you had tons of money to spend<br /> on anything you wanted?<br /> Sounds nice doesn’t it?<br /> But I wonder if these people<br /> are any happier or more<br /> content than we are.<br /> Maybe they are still not<br /> satisfied and want more.<br /> Maybe human nature is to always want more.<br /> Following this logic, these people are not<br /> any happier than we are but are just more comfortable.

Do you believe life would be better

if you had a mansion with a large pool?

If you had tons of money to spend

on anything you wanted?

Sounds nice doesn’t it?

But I wonder if these people

are any happier or more

content than we are.

Maybe they are still not

satisfied and want more.

Maybe human nature is to always want more.

Following this logic, these people are not

any happier than we are but are just more comfortable.

HOLD LIGHT CLOSE TO OUR HEARTS

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could hold light in our hands?<br /> Hold our hopes and dreams close to us.<br /> Let the darkness fade away,<br /> but keep the light close to our hearts.<br /> We can try.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could hold light in our hands?

Hold our hopes and dreams close to us.

Let the darkness fade away,

but keep the light close to our hearts.

We can try.
