Friday Frills


Every person has the power to make others happy. 
Some do it simply by entering a room 
Others by leaving the room. 

Some individuals leave trails of gloom; 
Others, trails of joy. 

Some leave trails of hate and bitterness; 
Others, trails of love and harmony. 

Some people leave trails of cynicism and pessimism; 
Others leave trails of faith and optimism. 

Some leave trails of criticism and resignation; 
Others, trails of gratitude and hope. 

What kind of trails do you leave?

Yes, great food for thought. It kind of makes you wonder about yourself and how you want to be perceived and ultimately be remembered by others...

Morning my dear Sam! I think there are two kind of people: the ones who sows discord and leaves a trail of hate everywhere; and the ones who loves being among people and leaves a trail of happiness eveywhere. How we are inside, have repercussions on others. Is in our power choose what kind of effect we want to have on them: if positive or negative. For my experience, I can only say that is important be surrounded by cheerful and bright people, the ones who leaves trails of joy and optimism, faith and love, who are able also to drag you through in their happiness. Unlike the ones who leaves trail of hate, gloom and pessimism, who will drag you through their bitterness! And you my friend, only leave a trail of love, care and friendship!:) Happy Friday my dear, kisses! xo

Hello my lovely Sam!

As always, thank you so much for your comment! I REALLY do appreciate your thoughts and opinions! :) I'm glad that we share the same opinion and I'm glad that you enjoyed the poem!

My Halloween was fine. I didn't dress up this year because I didn't go out for it. It was too cold and all the parties that my friends had were on Saturday and I went to World's of Fun instead. One day you will have to come to the states and enjoy Halloween with me! :) It can be a lot of fun! :)

You are so kind my love. So very sweet! It's no problem at all hun. You deserved EVERY compliment! :) You're a gem with a soul of gold too! I'm sorry to hear that it has been a tough week for you. Someone as wonderful, amazing, bright, intelligent, and beautiful (inside and out) as you are should always have a reason to smile! :) You're amazing! :) An amazing person and friend! Always remember that love! :) I'm here for you whenever you need someone to talk to or someone to make you smile with kind compliments! :) Hugs! :)

With love,
LB

nancy @ adore to adorn said...

such a great quote. It's so inspiring. I hope the trails I leave are positive, whether it be through my blog, through my words or through my actions. I don't want people to walk away feeling negative since so many things in life can make us feel that way (people, words, news, etc.). I know this happens to me often so I would hope that the little things in life make things better. =)

xo,
nancy

Maddie said...

Such a beautiful post & such beautiful words!
I believe that persons who come & go in our lives teach us a lesson or give something invaluable to us! I have plenty of friendswho now are only acquaintances with whom I have shared some pretty amazing moments, but we have drifted apart, & I am ok with that as I know that person came in my life for a reason and I will meet a lot more strong personalities in the future!
And about the criticism, hate, resignation- oh, well what doesn't kill us, makes us stronger, right? :)

Dressed with soul said...

Oh, dearest Sam, I think I leave all trails which you mention here, the bad ones and the good ones - although I would like to leave only the good ones. But in my opinion each thing has two sides and of this cause it may happen that one thing which you do one person makes really happy and another person is absolutely disappointed about your action ... And I think the bad things in life are also necessary to make us stronger and to teach us somethings which we have to learn.

And the picture which you have chosen is again fantastic <3

Wish you a happy weekend!
