There are times

I’m not a female,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t male

I’m not a black,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a white

I’m not immortal,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t mortal

I’m not a doubter,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a believer

I’m not a conservative,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a liberal

I’m not a saint,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t sinful

I’m not ignorant,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t learned

I’m not implicit
But there are times
I wish I weren’t explicit

I’m not an Islamic,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a Christian

I’m not an animal,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a human

I’m not in
But there are times
I wish I weren’t out

I’m not lonely
But there are times
I wish I weren’t the opposite

I’m not you
But there are times
I wish I weren’t me

… Still, there are times
I am the opposite
Of the opposite of me

My attitude depends on who you are.

Coping with Difficult Times   Leave a comment

parker

We all experience difficulty from time to time.  The U.S. is now officially in a recession and economies around the globe are struggling.  Whether you are currently dealing with a lot of stress or not, it is always helpful to be aware of some good practices that can help you cope during difficult times.

Bottom-line, it’s all about attitudes, so rather than getting on one of my frequent soapboxes, I would like to share a booklet that list some practices that I follow.  Believe me, they work:  DESTRESS KIT FOR CHANGING TIMES

Please share, and remember, be good to yourself!
