He will get you through it.

Stress (Sensational Haiku Wednesday)

half our lives we rush
there's always not enough time
until time runs out


stop for a minute
feel the breeze, inhale deeply
 that moment is yours


seize the day, they say
but we let the day seize us
we live on the edge


one day at a time
that's how it should always be
take control of LIFE

I've always known that you need to stop and smell the roses every single day. I've always tried too. Very well said.

Hubby and I will be gone for the next 11-12 days. It's our annual bay cruise. Just want you to know why I'm absent.

Have a terrific day Bing. Big hug. :)

Well said and I've always been telling myself that. Nowadays, I'm just doing that and it feels wonderful!

Well said my friend. You grab on never let go and be yourself. Wonderful haikus. Soft, poignant and meaningful. :) Have a great Wednesday.

hi sandee, ohhhhhhhh i wish i can go with you. i so need a vacation. a bay cruise would surely do me wonders. see, i am jealous of you my friend! how can i not be- a cruise is doubly fun because you're with hubby!!!

enjoy your holiday, sandee. thanks for taking the time to visit before you jumped off. i really appreciate it. :)

wenny, i had really bad days and i know this is easier said than done. but now when it gets too stressful, i pinch myself to shake it off and "get into the moment of stillness." it really works. it doesn't solve the problem but it calms down my mind and helps me look at the situation more objectively. thanks for visiting, friend. :)

Bing (PinkLady) September 29, 2010 at 10:32 AM  

thom, thanks for the nice comment. i'm glad that you like this piece. thanks. =)

Great haiku. Yesterday certainly seized me and shook me up! Today my friend and I are going on a girls outing. We plan to shop (we may not buy) and eat and laugh and giggle. It will be fun.

Bing my gosh you're right on target with this one
"seize the day, they say
but we let the day seize us"
This is one of the truest things I have read in a very long time.
Great haiku

Mama Zen September 30, 2010 at 2:45 AM  

This is so true! We do let the day seize us. Great haiku!

Ria September 30, 2010 at 5:53 AM  

That would be great on a poster!

Bing (PinkLady) September 30, 2010 at 7:57 AM

Bing (PinkLady) September 30, 2010 at 7:58 AM

thanks for the awards, jingle. much appreciated!

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
