The Achievement

It Is The
Great Achievement
Of My Life
That No One Else
Can Tell
When I Am In Heaven
And
When I Am In Hell.

Tom Bailey said...

My take on that one. Just my viewpoint only:

Very clever thought. It is control of your own life is what this sounds like control of your own viewpoint which is indeed very powerful. Controlling and being aware of your control of this area is the most powerful achievement or one of them for me.

My biggest achievement before that was keeping my mouth silent when it was appropriate.

Best regards,
Tom Bailey

Unlike the others I felt sadness when I read this. Does this relate to your health?

I think I need to post this alongside my current poster of inspiration at work: (see top middle link on the Gallery tab) http://www.edwardmonkton.com/

If you can face the wolf with this kind of equanimity there's no reason I cannot deal with Mr Potato Head without wanting to scream.

I haven't been able to get that right yet.

Love to you brave friend.

Shaista - you are very strong but that kind of strength is not always sustainable (or rather, that is what I have found). I think there should be at least one person(a very special person)who knows when you are in heaven (to share your joy) and when you are in hell (to share your pain)

You write beautifully.

Kitty you are quite right - and yes, I am surrounded by people who have shared my laughter and my pain, particularly my parents. Perhaps I am not difficult to read at all :)

It's called willpower. I like to pretend to myself that I am always in heaven...it's my optimism at work. And, usually, I actually believe myself.
