“If life were a marathon
We’d all be born running
And we’re not..
For we must learn to walk”


If you think but for a moment
You’d like to rest and really know it
So much in life needs compromise
Let’s just stop and close our eyes

All the troubles, all the pain
All the joys we want again
If you think that you are sad
Surely this, is not so bad

Do you know that you can float
Take a ride or write a note
By yourself you can do this
Tune out the noise and dismiss

Add a little silent prayer
Or some music to the air
A rested head and blanket too
There are things for you to do

Inhaling scents provoking pleasure
Hot baked bread or lavender
Candles added to the presence
Warming glow, add some incense

A bubble bath takes some time
You know your skin will just shine
A healthy meal or cup of soup
Quiet time for you to coop

Remove the objects that do harm you
Take a break and and do what birds do
Fly away and live in trees
Pretending here if you please

If you like to play and sing
You’re not missing anything
Dance to rhythms of the past
Remember times when you laughed

If you feel like some crying 
That’s ok, you know your trying
In the days when you are weak
This is the time for strength to speak

A human being can go far
Allow yourself as you are
Imagine things that give you comfort
Not the things that are not worth it

If there are people in your life
Think of them and what it’s like
How they also struggle too
And the ones that smile at you

Think of things in your heart
All the days and brand new starts
Forgive the times you resented
Allow new dreams to be presented

We all know that nothing stays
Change occurs in every day
The world continues anyway
Do not rush, take time to play

I am a deep thinker, lover of thoughts, a prolific writer sharing my words. In sharing I am caring. I am a member of the human race with an appetite to motivate, inspire, empower and provoke thinking. I stand for dignity in humanity. I am compelled to a vision that we are all here for a reason, life is like a deck of cards... “My cards. My deal. Life is learning the game!” #opism What is OPISM? I have come up with this term as my nick name is Op and they are my own quotes representing a moral doctorine belief system. Thus...Op+ism=Opism. #opism My Motto! “Dignity is Free” How I live...Embracing Dignity My professional experience is disbursed across industries from financial services and sales to that of personal and emergency care. As one who has trained and coached, mentored and taught; it has become a passion within to witness and feel joy in the achievement and success of others that I have been associated with. I am a lifelong learner and have created and facilitated various training materials. It is through such experience that I discovered the power of positive feedback in both professional and personal manners. I am self disciplined, accountable, determined, humble, loyal and adaptive; but above all I value my integrity! I am a decent human being. It is with my greatest pleasure to share with others the power of positive words.
