Snowflake – A Reflection

In Snowflake found on page 86 of Ilia Kramarik’s amazing book of art and prose titled The Future Never Gives Up. Ilia writes…”It is snowing. Only one snowflake is in the air. For both me and you.” I love this short reflection…The featured image I choose for this reflection is yours truly myself at a local restaurant that is a Mexican Restaurant and is my new favorite Restaurant…Some would say that I can be a snowflake in that I am very delicate…I would agree I get emotional and I have cried a lot over the years…I like to say that I feel therefore I am…There are times I am perfectly fine and calm and other times I am an emotional nervous wreck…What I have learned how to do is to express how I am feeling in the moment so that if I am tired and feeling anxious I will state that I am tired and anxious and rest will help and so I set boundaries with myself and others and ensure that I rest…I have learned how to listen to my body signals and feelings to ensure that I am living a balanced life…In this photograph I am posing for my blog and you tube channel…This is purely a hobby of mine a hobby I enjoy doing for no reason at all…Sometimes those kinds of hobbies are the most fun because there is no stress or pressure to perform or earn money for it…I asked my lovely waitress if I could please don the big hat and use the little musical instruments that they save for birthdays…She was very kind and allowed it…I was sure to tell it was definitely not my birthday that day but that I love the idea of posing as I am a bit of a poser…During my short visit at my favorite restaurant a friend of mine stopped in to say hi which was awesome…As I settle into my new life in an area that is new to me…I am slowly getting to know the locals and I am enjoying my own journey of eternity along the way…The drink featured in my photo looks like snowflakes except it is an icy fancy drink which I enjoy on occasion…This is the same restaurant I enjoyed lunch with my other friend Rita when she was in the area…I cherish my friends because as the years pass and as I get older I realize that friends and loved ones are to be cherished and time flies by with the indifference that only time has…Time is indifferent and has no need to please a soul…As a recovering people pleaser I am glad that time is indifferent and as time passes healing often occurs over time from past experiences that were not pleasant to say the least…I enjoy the simple things in life and tis simple fun that makes simple people like me smile…Yes I am very much a snowflake and that is alright…Snowflakes are elegant and simple yet complex and yes they melt melt melt all the time that would describe me…Snowflakes do share with our world a complex casual beauty unique to each snowflake…As a thank you for your follows likes N shares N subscriptions enjoy more you tube stuff including songs I do inspired by both Lady Gaga N Amy Winehouse…Two very unique and different performers who inspire me…Before you enjoy more you tube stuff I hope you enjoy my short reflection on friends and what it means to be a true friend…

Friends

When you think of friends what comes to mind? For me I think of the silly television show called friends…A friend is someone who laughs with you when you laugh smiles with you when you smile and cries with you when you cry…A friend is someone who has your back and is someone who would not bad mouth you behind your back when you are not present…A friend forgives and is kind and gives you many second chances especially if you are willing to eat crow humble yourself and apologize as needed…My friend who stopped by to say hi at that Mexican restaurant is a new friend that I have known for over a year…My first experience with this person was awkward for me and I did not handle the offer of friendship very well due to the fact that I had a huge wall up like the Berlin Wall that since came down located in Germany…I had a wall up that was more like the Great Wall of China…This person was someone I since contacted to sincerely apologize for how I acted back then as I was a capital jerk I needed to eat crow and apologize…What happened next moved me…My new friend forgave me on the spot and asked me to consider doing him a favor which I did in relation to how I had acted back then…In return I received a free service from his business as I do business with this man…This gesture moved me and his act of forgiveness moved me because I am not accustomed to forgiveness…I am usually cut off by people who refuse to forgive when I act like a capital jerk or horses ass…I can be a horses ass too…I share this part of my humanity with the world because I am only human and frail like a snowflake…Most recently I stopped by a local coffee place to apologize for being an idiot…Tis true they were in the wrong because they said my card declined the last time I was there but my transaction actually went through fine…I never got my goodies which angered me at the time…I was out twelve bucks with no goodies…This morning I popped in gave the ladies my sincerest heartfelt apologies for being a dick the female version of a dick that is the last time I was there…I told them I took it to prayer and because God recently humbled me that it is my sacred duty to apologize for being a dick head…I offered to give them twelve more dollars because after all that is what Jesus would do…Well the ladies were lovely I did not have to pay another twelve dollars…They forgave me readily and stated few people ever come back…I explained to them what happened and suggested to have other customers whose cards show as declined to check with their banks…The staff told me this happens often and they have zero control over these decline statuses…Because I ate crow and apologized for being obnoxiously rude the last time I was there…I received a free cuppa coffee and bag of doughnut holes and the name of the manager and phone number so I can call and explain my experience…Humbling ourselves is essential in dealing with people and lately I have been eating a lot of crow…With a Leo sign behind my birthday this lioness has been eating lots of humble pie which has been helping me to grow as a human being and I am making more friends along my Journey of Eternity…
