Full of surprises

People are full of surprises, though not always the pleasant kind. Just when you think they cannot stoop lower, they do. And things are worse for it.

Others will show an unexpected level of caring. They will look out for someone, even when no one is looking. And that is when you know it is real.

We should hope for the best, but prepare for the worst. Those who care will shine no matter the circumstance. It is the wicked who demand to be trusted.

There is a lot of evil in this world, but just a little good keeps it all in check. Because evil is merely nothing where something should be. Good has substance.

The rain falls on everyone. It can be a refreshing shower, or a depressing downpour. Attitude is the difference between a sunny day and a miserable outing.

Those who make a difference are not even aware of it. They are just being who they really are. And that is the most pleasant surprise there is.


  1. But it is just so fascinating when they go to the extremes either way. The thing that really bugs me is when they pick a spot--whether it be on either side of the good/evil spectrum--and just stand perfectly still. Any more effort could jeopardize them, and their own moral obligations prevent them from falling backwards. A human being who lacks any progression at all becomes stagnant.

    Hear me now: Humans were meant to always progress forward as individuals. We continually evolve, and we do so despite the situation the world delivers. The reason there is evil powers int his world at all is because there are so many people who is afraid to take one step in either direction. Yes, the ones who fall back to the extremes need to be stopped, but they will not be stopped by someone who stands still. Remember, they are in motion--a moving target.

    I implore you to be a human being. Be who you were meant to be and let this world go. You should not own society, and society should not own you. You are who you are, and you have to be that. If you cannot accomplish this and remain stuck in neutral, then you will be as if dead and rot from the inside out. You will die as if not even a human being, but an animal huddled in the corner, and from there, you will deserve no respect from others or even yourself. There isn't much time left. Choose.

    1. I have never stopped moving forward, Tommy. And there is no power in the universe that can stop me. I endure, now and forever.

  2. People are indeed full of surprises, but I rarely concern myself with the hidden daggers and focus on the those with substance who add to the world instead of consuming. We have the power to make the best of any situation but rarely is it used as only those with an unlocked creative mind can adapt. Step over dead weight move forward and never expect anymore from anyone than what is demonstrated.

    1. Accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative, Chris. Making the best of a situation, requires being able to adapt. There is nothing that cannot be overcome through patience and perseverance.
