Starting Fresh and Letting the Wilting Flowers Go

Updated on October 17, 2011

There Will Be Days That We Can't Control

When we try hard and things go to pieces

Each time we hope for the best and we come up short

Trying to enjoy the day and it rains and it rains and it rains

But through it all I hope we have learned one great lesson

Make sure you have lots of band -aids for all the times we fall

They have cool ones now not like when I was a kid

You can get a Superman, Spiderman or even Cinderella one

They also have clear ones that don't come off even in the shower

We have come along way

So why can't we eperience the best of times when the worst of times strike

Never giving it a second thought

Just laugh it off and turn the tears into cheers

These days won't last forever

Before we know it we will be having fun again

Chasing stars and dreams on every corner

Wondering how to make the impossible come true

When life doesn't work out the way we want

Tell a friend and they can laugh with you till you both cry

Life is filled with surprises and sometimes we just don't have the answers

But we have found something much more important

Friends that make are sadness go away

Our mistakes are temporarily forgotten as we eat chocolate cupcakes and our favorite ice cream

Sharing our life with the people that care

Before you know it

We have learned to mend our broken hearts with a patch

We have learned to fill our emptyiness with new loves and joys

So soon we will be enjoying the life we are meant to live

One that starts of interesting and turns to exciting and ends in amazing

Feeling all the good that we are capabe of giving and recieving

Like a newspaper machine stacked twenty high

Waiting for the right moment to spring open it's door and share a wonderful thought

With a woman who a minute ago came into our life

Reached out with an open hand and took us under her arm

When she had a little time later she gave us her full attention

Checking us out

Touching us from to top to bottom

As if we were the only one in her life

Life can't get any better than that

Thanks for making my tough days a little bit easier

My distant days a little closer

A love that starts with a simple touch and leads to

Well you get the idea....

      Dim Flaxenwick It took me five days to think of an answer to this wonderful question.I have waited and gave it much thought.I have not written any stories since.This has to be the longest I have ever gone without a story.Now I wonder if I have a defect that my brain doesn't work right.Then again another problem to solve.But this one I can never cure.I want to experience what others see but I don't honestly.I think we live to enjoy and have as much fun as possible and some fun is just delayed a little bit longer.For what reason I am not sure.I know just maybe so we can share are feelings with friends so we can all have a good laugh. I am so pleased that you have given my writings a boost and have loved my stories.I look at your wonderful talents and so many other hubbers who make writing look so easy.They constantly publish one great hub after another.I am stuck in happy land where I let my true feelings go.Life can be a hard struggle for so many.I have been blessed by God.My life has had it's ups and downs but usually my ups send me up in the clouds where I can't see a bad thing for days.Then there are times when I hit my all time lows.I hit the mud and get covered from head to toe.The worst of the worst.The lowest of the low.Then again I have tried to laugh.I haven't been here for awhile and I see everyone else walking past me.I think I might just stay awhile.Covered in mud might be a good thing.I am covered head to toe and I don't see any imperfections.I am unique and feel different than everyone else.I feel excited to be having fun.It brings back memories of being young when life was just that F U N !!!!No one would tell a kid not to have fun.They would just say they are kids and boy do they look a mess.The worst is yet to come they have to be washed off by a hose and later get a shower because the mud is everywhere.The wore their play clothes and it was o.k.They didn't hurt anyone and actually made people laugh and welcomed anyone else to join in.I think life can get too serious and we have to find a way any way to liven it up.Pure and simple.Many times unorthodox and down right bizzare.Then again what is the worst that can happen you get a little mud up the nose.You have a memory to tell your kids and maybe their kids.Would life be that bad if we smiled a little more.I am willing to give it a try.You and all my hubbers are my secret out of the bag.I am a mad scientist and all the hubbers are my subjects.I will try to make them happy for a second that would be great.For a minute that would be Fabulous.For more than that would be impossible.Then again that is what a mad scientists does.Make everyone else believe like them.I haven't succeeded.So maybe I am just too happy to be mad.I think I am even the worst scientist there is.I fail so many times and I have to go right back to my lab and find a way that works.I have to surround myself with hours and hours of endless laughter.So I can noticed all my struggles that nocked me back and have almost blew me up many times.Too many to count.In the end I am still here and hope the happy police don't come to take me away.When all is said and done all I can say is I don't remember the last time I had so much funn.Yes fun with a double n because this is not the n of me.I am not the enemy.I have found many people resist fun and love like the plague thinking there is more to it than that.Like I am setting myself and others I tell to fail.I will prove them wrong.I will keep trying and failing but hopefully while I was out there a few more laughs that came chuckling out.I missed them too.Wrong place wrong time.Maybe this is one of those times that I will keep waiting and looking for a sign.So we can laugh the biggest laugh together.Thanx so much and back to hubbing and all the thoughts that make me think.????I don't have the answers to lifes problems but I do have sdo many questions.Have a wonderful day.
