Trying to remember that there is always a reason, always something that makes you smile during the day- recognizing the event, person or situation that made you smile will make your day seem that much better.

Turn it on...

Good morning
How are you
Fine...you?
Fine
Ha ha ha
Laugh
Smile
Nod your head
Buckle down
Get it Done
Accomplish
Drive
Go Go GO
Don't stop
Keep moving
Keep going
How was your day
Fine
Yours?
Fine
Walk away
Smile...everything's fine
Even when It's not
Does anyone truly want to know?
Do you really have to go through the bullshit?
Do you really need to just agree?
Is that was this has come to?
Don't say how you really feel
Don't make a wrong step
Everything's great
Everything's wonderful
Everything's fantastic
Yep I will
Yep I do
Yep I can
Of course
Absolutely
Smile
Nod
STOP
Listen to me
Hear me
Talk to me
Ask me
STOP
Wait for the answer
Pry behind the nodding, the smiling, the blank stare
Ask the question you want to ask but only if you are willing to hear the answer
STOP
Encouraging status quo
Going through the motions
STOP
Asking if you don't really want my opinion
STOP
TAKE A DEEP BREATH
ASK THE QUESTION
DIGEST THE ANSWER
RESPOND MEANINGFULLY
OR
Don't ask the question

The question I have---do you want lemmings who will follow you off the cliff --or---people who will find a way over it?

It's been a long day...hugs and love to you all...

  5. I would definitely want people to find a way past my brave smile pretending I am ok. If they don't then I know that they definitely didn't really want to know how I was in the first place and are using "how are you?" as just a form of greeting as they carry on walking :)
