This is an imitative poem from a Booksie member johngumbs' poem: I Take Love With Me. However it shows how I used to feel and believed to be the right attitude of living. And now it still holds true for me, and I find by being able to admire everything or everyone I see, life can become a lot happier and worthier to live on.

Everything I see,

I put love into it.

It is my admiraiton,

Just letting you know. 

 

Like a mirror, 

The world reflects what I feel,

It tells me, "Let's come nearer."

With love everything can be real.

Thank you. 88. I used to feel that way for a long while only few years ago. I saw everything and everyone with a lot of positiveness about them. A leaf, a bottle, an old lady, even the men I did not like...(I wasn't in love then. Just pure happiness without any reason. Life was beautiful...) Anyway, it was quite a change and shock for me then, but it died down to "I hate everything" (I did not have any breakup either.) Now I wish to get back to that state again, and stably remain that way.

Thank you very much. Mike. I hope everyone can see thier world that way too. It is not easy at times to love or to admire when all you see is negetives of that person or thing, but it still can. That was how I resolved my conflicts with my many things, and the hatred within me. Love despite all the invitation to do otherwise. It is a skill to have. Anyway, despite how you said negetives about yourself, I still see a lot of real You from your writings and replies. Creative, daring, loyalty, helpful, and charming...

Try it and see. Please read my reply to Mike's and 88's too. I know it is not easy but I know it is possible. Few years ago, i and my husband were not doing well at all, and had become many people's concern. But I changed my mind to see what I can like about him instead of how I hate about him. Then everything changed. I know why we would be together, and I know how to keep up the relationship, and we never argued even once. It was just an overnight shift of viewpoint. Quite amazing. Admiration works wonderfully. Everyone has good and bad side, we should allow that good side shines through and see the good side of that person. I like you too. Many good qualities you have. You know. (I have been thinking to write another story about you too.)

Bit of a change to one about attacking the old bloke Derina, but I'll still carry my walking stick, you can never be too careful!

Haha. He was a rare one, but that incident only last for one second, and we talked again. Anyway, shit happened too, but still put love into it. The walking stick is a weapon of yours right? Mine is an umbrella, I carry it all the time, just in case love doesn't work.
