It is a simple word.
It doesn’t require a lot of muscle movement in your face to use, it doesn’t even require a lot of vocal activity it just requires a great deal of ones ego to actually do it.
I’m not talking about the Help one needs if they are in danger. I’m talking about the help one needs to get through life. Simple stuff. Ego however gets in the way. It stifles the process for people to grow.
I’m saying this because if you checked ego at the door there would be better communication between people. People would be able to talk more freely with one another and if they needed help from someone they could say, “I need your help with something, I’m stuck”, ” I need something and don’t know who to turn to, can you help me?”
Help is an easy word to say if only people could do it more often.

Weekly Photo Challenge: It Is Easy Being Green
My work gets me up early so I have the chance to catch some gorgeous sunrises.
This was one in late March through Northern California farmland.
Valentine’s Day. A day filled with heart shaped boxes, jewelry, chocolate, dreams, and expectations.
Some people may have been married on this day and celebrating a special occasion, others may have had their hearts broken, and others just may not relate at all. I used to have expectations for the day just like everyone else but over the years I’ve become tired of the commercialization that stores and television put on Valentine’s Day. It forces expectations on people instead of letting it happen naturally and spontaneously. It takes the unknown out of life and makes people have to react that is why I am more inclined to just have a quiet retreat and spend a day, other than Valentine’s with my husband somewhere. No frills, no candy, no hoopla- no expectations.

My weekly Photo Challege submission. We are standing at the Salton Sea. Dead fish are among us and very eerie to be on a deserted beach at 249 feet below sea level.

You wonder sometimes if you are heard.
I sit on conference calls a lot and when I speak up at times I don’t know if people are listening or grasping for things to do while I talk. Have I been heard?
In another situation silence makes you wonder if what you have said means you’ve been heard.
I often try to talk to my adult college age child about important matters (i.e. Scholarship deadlines, money, life plans, choices) and wonder- have I been heard.
There are times when I feel like screaming at the top of my lungs just to see if anyone will react because I am invisible to them and unheard.
What does it take to be heard nowadays? Does it take people to fight in the streets, post ridiculous media segments, protest for a cause that is only one sided or be part of something you know is not within your moral ground. Is that what it takes to be heard? If it is- I’d rather be silent.
