Golden Key

Golden Key

You’ve been given a key that can open one building, room, locker, or box to which you don’t normally have access. How do you use it, and why?

I’ve got the golden key, a key that can unlock any place I would like to go for one day….what to do, where to go, a key to the unknown, but there really isn’t any place I would like to go. So how about a nonphysical place, a place that holds memories and dreams, I’d like to unlock that door. The door to my fondest memories and my wildest dreams….now that would be something.



Waiting Room

“Good things come to those who wait.” Do you agree? How long is it reasonable to wait for something you really want?

It depends on what one is waiting for. Waiting while one is also doing things in preparation for when the situation happens, to make sure you are somewhat prepared for it……then “yes” waiting is good. But if one is waiting for say the right person to come along however, you’re waiting while sitting in your living room, or not making sure you’re happy with yourself for when Mr. or Mrs. Right comes along….then “no” waiting is not good. 

I like to take things into my own hands, in today’s society you kind of have to. Then I know that if I did everything in my power to make it happen, but it doesn’t go in my favor, then it wasn’t for me at that time. But to just sit around while doing nothing…..well that’s just pointless. 

Coffee Date with the Younger Me

Always do your best, cherish friendships, live in the moment, laugh, love, travel, and most importantly be happy. Now go and enjoy your life!

One Eventful Morning

Daily Prompt…….

Today you can write about anything, in whatever genre or form, but your post must include a speeding car, a phone call, and a crisp, bright morning. (Wildcard: you can swap any of the above for a good joke.)

I awake to the bright morning light, and look at the time…….oh crap I overslept! So I hop in the shower, get dressed, and make a phone call to my friend Chris, who surprisingly also overslept, to come and pick me up. He stops by in his speeding car, and we whisk off to the office. “Oh crap”! I said, as I started to laugh. Chris looks over and said, “what”? It’s Saturday, we both laughed.

Oil, Meet Water

Of the people who are close to you, who is the person most unlike you? What makes it possible for you to get along?

I guess it is true, that opposites attract. I have this one friend, and well we’re not completely opposite, but there are enough differences between us, to call us opposites. For example, I’m more of a optimist and their more of a realist. I’m more of a planner and their more of a whatever happens, happens. I’m a vegetarian, they’re a meat eater. Whatever the difference is, we seem to make it work. We seem to balance each other out, I guess you can say this person is the yin to my yang! And like all of the people that I am close to the most, I am truly grateful for this person. We may butt heads, but this person is there when I need them the most.

Just a Thought

No matter what type of relationship it is friendship or romantic, both parties involved are going to need to put in time, have patience, and the willingness to work at it. Just because things are hard one cannot give up, there will be brighter days.



The most important thing is to enjoy your life – to be happy – it’s all that matters.
