A Friday Poem- Reminisce

~Thank goodness it’s Friday, it’s been a long week

As I reminisce, the sun warms my cheeks

Standing at the window I look to see through

I remember when I used to spend my Fridays with you

And as the months pass by it gets easier to swallow

But still there’s a soft dull pain; a sweet empty hallow

For once my heart longed for the week to end

It was because of you but now I look forward to my dear friends

Freedom is funny when you wished for a bond

That desire to be connected suddenly gone

Now today is just mine and I’ll do what I wish

I will dance. I will sing. I will accept the tarnish

For my broken wings are starting to heal more and more

I think I am finally ready to close that heavy rusted doorantelope-canyon-543590

The brightness I thought I’d lost is shining into my cave

I know I have to emerge. I have to be brave

Today is my Friday and it is mine all mine

From the depths of my heart, the sun will continue to shine xo

Happy Friday

Tiny turtles jumping from my hand 

Warming up for their very first swim 

For these tiny turtles, I would go out on a limb

To help them reach their ocean life

As the sun sets, they swim into the night

Love Turtles xo

The Simple Act of a Smile :)

~Simple acts of kindness can really go a long way. That is why todays post will be short and sweet. I’d like to share the simple act of a smile 🙂

fun-20008_1280Smile!! 🙂

The simple act of a smile can brighten someone’s day. Every time a person smiles at me, I instantly feel happy. I may be having a tough day or struggling with those afternoon “lulls” that most people experience just before the work day ends, but if someone smiles at me it’s an automatic mood booster.

I was reminded of this at the beginning of the week when I started my new class at the University. I needed to find a new bus route to UVic because I moved to a different part of town. I was happily surprised to find out that my new bus driver had mastered the simple act of smiling at each person boarding the bus. I noticed that she would even go above and beyond the smile by welcoming every person on the bus with a lovely greeting and then say goodbye to them, wishing each of those people a great day. This made me so happy; To see someone making such a wonderful effort to brighten everyone’s day. 🙂

So here is my smile for you 😀 I hope you have a fabulous weekend and may your smiles shine throughout the blogosphere.
