Fragile...


fra-gile, adj. - easily broken or destroyed;  delicate



"Fragile"
Philadelphia, PA



You know how when you're young,  you think you'll always "be"?  The older I get, the more I understand how fragile life truly is.  "Being" is a delicate state.  On the one hand that's a sad realization.  On the other hand, in my never-ending quest to not always be the "glass half empty" kinda of gal I naturally gravitate to...it's good motivation to seize the day and be joyful.  Dontcha think?

  2. So so so true - I often let some demons and scars from my earlier days get the better of me and I need to remember that life is life and that I need to focus on the now and the future!

  4. Yes Kathy, I agree we all need more joy in our lives and it has to start with us. We are responsible for our own happiness, our thoughts, words and deeds. But, as most of us know, that is easier said than done. Life takes work and when you can find joy in what you have to do to provide for your life..........that is happiness. We can start by giving thanks for one thing every time we wake up in the morning; even if it is just that we did wake up and have the opportunity to do it all again today in whateaver way we chose.
    I am thankful today that I have YOU as a blog friend. Peace!

  5. Totally agree with Carol! I am responsible for my mood everyday and I choose Happiness! No, matter what is it that's going wrong I try my best to find something positive out of it. The only thing now that's in a fragile state are my muscles & bones! Why do I feel the need to try need exercises around holiday time? Kickboxing crunches! I sneezed earlier & my abs literally told me not to do that again. O__o
