The Ocean, My Lover

I can’t forget that night.
It’s hard to let it go.
Bathing in the moonlit tide,
Freely did I float.
 
But waves forced me onto rocks,
Cuts and gashes gushed forth blood.
I didn’t notice till the morn,
My body told me of my scorn.
 
And how the seagulls sang their song!
Cruelly mocking on and on!
As I baked under the sun,
Lamentation all day long.
 
No going back, no taking back
The night that I made love,
With the ocean, a wild lover,
Whose touch is oh so rough.
 
But I can’t forget that night.
I cannot let it go.
Bathing in the moonlit tide,
Freely did I float.

So happy.

To write about how I feel is a nuisance and it is unnecessarily repetitive.

Instead I will write about the warmth of the breeze slipping through my open car window.

I will express thanks to God for the clouds and the trees that provide relief from a hot sun.

I will smile slightly at the distant chatter of children coming from the park across the street.

And I will be happy – so happy – to realize that I am blessed to witness these things at all.

You want to come into my life; the door is open. You want to get out of my life; the door is open. Just one request: don’t stand at the door. You’re blocking the traffic.

Unknown

One request.

You’re special.

Otherwise I wouldn’t like you so much.

I can’t explain it,

But you are so cool.

You are so sweet.

You are so cute.

You are…you…

You’re special.

I appreciate that you don’t feel the need to talk all the time.

You appreciate silence.

You appreciate thinking.

You work hard.

You wish you could play harder :)

I wish we could hang out.

I wish we could just chill.

I wish we could take trips together,

And listen to music,

And just be

…together.

Doesn’t that sound nice?

How unfortunate that you’ve never even thought about this!

I think we could be friends.

I think we could be good friends.

I wish you thought the same…

I have expressed my strong interest in the mass of the people; and this is founded, not on their usefulness to the community, so much as on what they are in themselves…. Indeed every man (sic), in every condition, is great. It is only our own diseased sight which makes him little. A man is great as a man, be he where or what he may. The grandeur of his nature turns to insignificance all outward distinctions.

(William Ellery Channing)

I recently had a conversation with some friends about the origin of life and the significance of man. The quote above states my view with clarity and supports my belief that we should take pride in the beauty of our human form, our lives, and the world in which we live.

For the INFJ.

Isn’t it funny?

We’re all born with this longing to be special and to do something awesome – so we spend a ton of time wishing, dreaming, and hoping.

Yes, we spend. We spend a lot…it’s too expensive.

Time to start budgeting our time – my time – better.

It’ll be a work in progress. It won’t happen over night.

But I believe it is a worthwhile cause, because hopefully, we will end up being thankful enough for this life and this body to make the most of it.

One day, we will not have any of this. We will only have a legacy.

Time to budget. Time to live now. Time to love ourselves so that we can love others.

And hey, you never know: in the process of all of that mess, we might discover that we’ve left a beautiful disaster – of lessons learned, heartache, forgiveness, and joy.

And ultimately, my hope for you and me (the INFJ’s of this world), is to understand that we are fearfully and wonderfully made – crafted uniquely to serve in this world until our awesome Maker calls each one of us home.

A letter.

danielcastaneda-e1332970810182

Dear 2013,

I’m not praying that you will be wonderful and I’m not hoping that you will be better than 2012.

I am expecting it.

I am choosing better.

I am choosing wonderful.

There is no other option.

I don’t doubt that trials will come. They may be more tumultuous than ever before – but you know what that means, right? The victory, once it comes, will be all the sweeter and all the more triumphant.

Yes, 2013, come with bells and whistles.

I look forward to living life in you.

Much love,

S

I asked for STRENGTH and God gave me DIFFICULTIES to make me strong.

I asked for WISDOM and God gave me PROBLEMS to solve.

I asked for PROSPERITY and God gave me BRAWN AND BRAINS to work.

I asked for COURAGE and God gave me DANGERS to overcome.

I asked for PATIENCE and God placed me in SITUATIONS where I was forced to WAIT.

I asked for LOVE and God gave me TROUBLED SOULS to help.

I asked for FAVORS and God gave me OPPORTUNITIES.

I asked for EVERYTHING so I could enjoy LIFE.

Instead, he gave me LIFE so I could enjoy EVERYTHING!

I received NOTHING I WANTED; I received EVERYTHING I NEEDED.

Nothing I wanted.
