No Pity Here

Pity is a form of charity.
Pity is for the downtrodden and brokenhearted.
The catalyst for pity is an appearance of “different.”
Others can pity the others, or you can pity you.
One can sit in the dark.
One can wallow and weep.
Pity is not a form of respect here.
It is an unwelcome donation!
Pity is given to those that have more baggage than most.
In most contexts, “I can’t” is the start of a negative phase, but in this case I can say it…
My legs are too weak to walk with your pity.
My hands are too full to hold your pity.
My arms are too short to reach your pity!
I am too proud of all I am accomplished in my life to let pity get me down!
I am truly happy with the life I lead, and with the people who cheer in my corner.
I am no politically correct phrase!
I am me!
I have had to be the explorer of my own path.
I have had to think quickly on my feet when encountering an obstacle.
I have had to use a flashlight, a map and a helping hand when things get hard!
Every time I fall, I am thankful that scrapes and bruises heal, and that pain does not stain.
After I cry, I am thankful that tears dry.
After a bad day, I am thankful that I can borrow the good for tomorrow!
I am thankful I can beg for a hug from the people who care about me most!
I never worried about what I couldn’t do, I would only worry about the things I could do that I did not.
I never say, “What if things were different?”
I always say, “Do not mess with what works”.
Life never took anything from me and I’m giving anything back.
The sale is final.
Anyone looking to pity me, please do one final thing with your pity and please return to sender!
No pity here.

What do you say to someone who brightens your every day?
What do you say to someone who brightens even in your darkest day with just the sound of their voice?
What do you say to someone who understands that life is a rocky road?
What do you say to someone who loves you for you?
What do you say to someone who keeps your heart safe and at peace?
What do you say to someone who embraces you, all your hopes and all your dreams?
What do you say to someone who never lets you down?
What do you say to someone who never lets a day go by without letting you know how much you mean to them?
What do you say to someone who has forever made an imprint on your heart forever?
A simple thank you will never be enough!


Never Say Never

Never say never to the weak that find the strength to stand.
Never say never to the challenged who surpass the mark!
Never say never to the sun peeking through the rain.
Never say never to thunder in the snow!
Never say never to a broken heart finding love.
Never say never to a warrior who finds peace.
Never say never to the lost who find their way.
Never say never to the sad who find a smile.
Never say never to the lonely who find fulfillment.
Only say never to impossibility!
