Sunday Scribblings ~ #365 Wake Up

Wake Up

 Sometimes, I just want to shout at you

 "Wake Up"

 or to be honest in a more direct

 and not so nice way...

 "Wake the Fuck Up.

 The imaginary world you live in,

 is crumbling fast around you

 and you are not remotely aware.

 As you yourself have said;

 you wake up each day trying your best to move on,

 to find a new way to relate to people,

to life and the world.

 But you still follow the same patterns, make the same mistakes,

speak the same excuses, and blame every one else,

when things don't go exactly the way you think they are suppose to.

 So, I say it once again, nicely,

"Wake Up".

Before you find yourself completely alone in life and the world,

with no chance of recovering,

being loved, or ever truly loving again.

Sunday Scribblings ~#364 Apology

Initially, I was stumped by this prompt because I had lot's of topics that crossed my mind when it came to the topic of apology. Since I had not been to Megg's blog in a long while, I decided to check it out before I wrote and wham, her last entry resonated with me so much.I knew in a second what apology topic I wanted to write about. This post by Megg filled me with such inspiration. I too have a lot of books on my many bookshelves that I have not read. I am so guilty of buying books without having even read what is currently on my shelf. Or just as guilty of putting on hold, a dozen or so more books from the library and still the unread books sit on my shelf, unread and neglected. What a great way to apologize to all those books waiting to be read by counting them, and giving them their first acknowledgment that you remember they are still there. Then finally doing them justice by finishing or reading them for the first time and actually getting through them, once and for all. I was fascinated and think that the universe was calling out to Megg to create her own "Body, Mind, and Spirit University", just for the shear fact that she had exactly 108 books that turned out was symbolic of a sacred number. Perhaps the the books were calling out to her as well. Wanting to be finished or started. I found her post almost a calling out to me as well, to apologize to my neglecting bookshelves. So much so, I am following suit, counting books and starting to read them page-by-page and creating my own spiritual, and knowledge learning as well as enjoyable experience.
