The other day my daughter said to me, “mom! I don’t want to grow up”

She just turned 20.

I said “neither do I”

This young & beautiful #Millennial has seen too much in #life & at the same time hasn’t experienced it in a broader sense either..

Oh the words of wise I wanted to spew…that.. “yes I know, I’ve been there too!”

No I couldn’t to this.. For It was clear to me that she really did have some valid reasons..we all do!

Life can be really scary. Period.

It can hit you hard in the chest, make you lose your breathe & demand a big chunk of your sanity

There are those who are deemed weak for wondering if this earth is where they want to be.

It is getting harder, this is true..

We can’t figure out just what to do.

We scramble, blame, scream & shout,

retreat, cry, hibernate & pout!

We offer #coaching, success, money & influence!

Emotional skill & artificial #intelligence?

How to save time with meals in a box;

brought to you from your mobile docks!

Answers to questions in seconds is fair,

But 10,000 I even compare?

We are overwhelmed and stimulated

Underpaid and humiliated.

Quick to obey? Equal rites?..No way!

There’s always an ulterior motive that’s true.

Follow my link, oh! There’s a price there too!


This little self inside of you…

Sent forth a wave to penetrate too.

Faith & Hope is all you need!

You are the flower, You are the seed!

The most beautiful, YOU are a ROSE!



To be real it must exist!

To exist it must be real!

To exist is to live!

To live is to be real!

So do THOUGHTS exist?

If it isn’t real, it doesn’t exist!


Thoughts do not exist!

Thoughts are not real!


What you ‘think’ isn’t real!


What you ‘believe’ is real.

To believe is accepting something as the truth.

Believing is the act of accepting.

A belief is the attitude that something is true. Accepting something as true.

An attitude is reflected in your behaviour.

To be true is to not be false.

It is your measure of faith that will determine your choice in what you chose to believe.

Know Your Power Here!

If what you believe is not making you happy.

Change the thought.

Believe something else and make it good.

Act it out.

Enjoy the rewards.

Don’t like it?

You can always change your mind!

There are no mistakes, just ‘nothing’ little thoughts.

The best thing to do is to just be true.

Truth is as real as you make it.

So you will be the only judge here.

We get to control our lives this way.

You are what you believe.

It’s really all up to you!

Be your own best friend!

Believe in you!

Thinking back before this day

How it came to be this way

Did you master all of it?

Every single little bit?

Or were there times you questioned too

Did your parents purchase you,

Or settled for the sight of you?

Do you have siblings, that you like,

Or cousins hence you like to fight?

Did you change your own hair colour,

Thinking that you’d look much better?

How come your friends have it all

When you struggle & feel so small?

How is it that you failed at school

And never felt that really cool?

Or maybe you are quite successful

Was this something just inevitable?

Was it clear from that day one

You had your orders one by one?

Did you know what was in store?

Did you know something more?

Is there a way to determine

What will be…is for certain?

If I await & take no action

Will I have much satisfaction?

But if I chose to play a hand

Will I succeed on this land?

Life’s not fair, this is my fate

Predetermined & gravitate

& when I decide in reality

Did I change my #Destiny?

#PaulaG #opism #paulapoems

To think of your fate is to be deterministic.

You just accept things..

“If it was meant to be it will happen”

“It is what it is”

To think in terms of Destiny allows probability to exist;

It is not absolute and allows for change.

If you don’t like it..change it!

Destiny is more #positive!


Do You Know Your Triggers?

Do you ever have those moments when a sudden emotional or physical reaction occurs in any given situation? Do you get offended easily or feel like a victim? Do you fly off the handle? Do you lose a moment in space?

Do you ever smell a certain scent and feel sick or quite delighted?

Do you see a stranger who reminds you of someone you know and start shaking with apprehension or joyful anticipation?

Do you cower back from someone who reaches out to touch you?

Do you start to cry when a love song plays, or you attend a loving ceremony?

Do you swear and scream blue murder when you miss the very last train?

Do you run for the nearest exit with the sound of loud alarms?

Do you drive with the loudest music and avoid all that appears?

Do you put metal to the pedal and shift around the gears?

Do you stop your hearty eating when the company isn’t good?

Do you suffer sudden headaches when your just not understood?

Do you doubt your very existence when your words are cut off too?

Do you fly right off the handle if your asked your point of view?

Do you stand up after battle when they throw you to the floor?

Do you run around in circles until you find the door?

Do you cover your eyes in fear when you know that someone’s near?

Do you walk a little faster when you know your not alone?

Do you think that someone’s watching, when your not in your own zone?

Do you know your “Negative” 𝑻𝑹𝑰𝑮𝑮𝑬𝑹𝑺 ?

Do you know what sets you off?

Do you know your 𝑷𝑶𝑾𝑬𝑹?

*PAUSE..acknowledge the trigger

* guidance and direction

*FORGIVE..It’s ok!

*RETHINK..the bigger picture

*REPLACE..better thoughts

Comment below what triggers you and what do you do?

Let’s #share and #care

Dignity is Free‼️

“Be yourself, Everyone else is already taken.” Oscar Wilde

It’s not just fluffy poetry…. it makes you think‼️

Life was not meant to be lived alone, and yet we all have thoughts that we own and are not shared.
No two thoughts are ever the same, nor felt the same by another. Perception is endless… we all have this unique outlook in life. Combine this with your own interpretations …phenomenal….

Like to think? You’ve come to the right place.

Hello! My name is Paula! #PaulaG

I am a deep thinker, lover of thoughts, a writer sharing my words. They are my gift to you!

In sharing I am caring. I am a member of the human race with an appetite to motivate, inspire, empower and provoke thinking.

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 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. Our birthright is that of dignity! People matter first!

It is with my greatest pleasure to share with others the power of positive words.

Customer Service Expertise! Genuine and kind! Sharing Positives! Lead by example! #SPN #ONO #PaulaG #opism #paulapoems Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
