Rainbows and unicorns are everywhere –


I try not to think about bad things. Because It serves no purpose — accept maybe to antagonize me. There have been moments, days, even weeks where I have been consumed by bad thoughts … when I have internalized the worst possible scenario …

When a plane crashes, my mind pictures people that I love on that plane hopeless and terrified. When monsters break into people’s homes and terrorize them, I can’t help but picture similar scenarios in my neighborhood, my street, my own home. When I hear about the horror that exists in the is world I can’t help but wonder what if that were me, or someone I cared about…

But I try not to think about bad things. Because the inevitable is just that — and I for one still trust in good — I know it’s out there … it’s everywhere … rainbows and unicorns are everywhere, sometimes they’re just a little harder to find. Worry gets me no where, I know that.

But, inevitably, I do worry sometimes … especially when I fly. Truth be known, I hate it. Like really, really, really, hate it. It terrifies me … ohhhh …. now here’s a thought … maybe if I had a unicorn of my own he could take me to all the places I need to go and I’d never have to fly commercial again. Today’s super short post inspired by today’s one-word promp: Inevitable I’d write more but I have to find catch a unicorn … and that takes some time : )

    This is lovely. <3
    At the end of the day, it's so "little" that makes one happy.

  3. Wonderful thoughts.

    1. Let me clarify, you final thoughts. Not the ones that you internalize the things that happen to others and you imagine yourself in their place. :-) I always press enter too fast.

        I do that too – press enter too fast … and thank you. It’s true you know …. sometimes we want so much but yet it’s the simpleness of having our loved ones safe and sound that is really all we are after :)

    P.s, Sorry, I’m a writer and write stories for my other blog – under a pen name – and when I see/read well written pieces, the writer in me comes out and has to comment. I thought I’d let you know in case you might wonder what the heck I’m on about in my initial comment! :D
