Why read Monday Morning Power?

You will find a consistency and a focus in all of my content that can change your attitude which can fuel a positive change in your life, if you want it to. If you are happy with your attitude and your life and see no reason for changing, then you either already have a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude), or you are a victim and want to hold onto your misery. These postings will then serve to fortify the person with PMA, or, hopefully, convince the "victim" that there is a better way. This site will contain essays, poems, stories, humor and links, all with the same goal: The pursuit, capture, care and feeding of a Positive Mental Attitude. I have had readers tell me that they have spent hours on my site and feel great about themselves both during and after. I log onto my own site frequently to help fuel my attitude; I hope you will as well.

Are You Prepared For Success? (Section III - Installment #4 "Solitude” – Male & Female versions)


(If this is your first time on this site, you may want to begin with "Are You Prepared For Success?" [Introduction])

If you are a regular reader of my Empowerment Process please read the Section II version of this poem first; then read this version.

Solitude

If I laugh the world laughs with me;
Weep, and I weep alone;
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of it’s own.
If I sing, the hills will answer;
Sigh, it is lost in the air;
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from voicing care.

If I rejoice, folks will seek me;
Grieve, and they turn and go;
They want full measure of all my pleasure,
But they do not need my woe.
If I am glad, my friends are many;
If I'm sad, I'll lose them all--
There are none to decline my nectared wine,
But alone I must drink life's gall.

If I feast, my halls are crowded;
Fast, and the world goes by.
If I succeed and give, it helps me live,
But no one can help me die.
There is room in the halls of pleasure
For a large and lordly train,
But one by one we must all file on
Through the narrow isles of pain.

Based on a poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

I strongly suggest that you write down your immediate reaction, after passionately reading this poem.
Refer back to the "Section (II)" "Comments"
  • How do you feel when you are around happy, positive people?
  • How do you feel when you are around unhappy, negative people?
  • How will you act when you are around the people you like?

Hi Mel,

Wonderful post and certainly something to think about :)

You've been TAGGED...it's an easy one though :)
Happy New Year in advance :)

Mel,

My dear friend :D!
I absolutely loved the poem: it was slightly different from the one in section II (the first was in the second person, this one is in the first person; but even the structure is different, isn't it?).

It is so true: when we are well people feel drawn to you; when you are down people walk away (which is quite silly if you ask me...I like to be there when people need me; specially when they are down...it is our duty as humans to be somebody's angel, right?).

"How do you feel when you are around happy, positive people?" - I am a happy person by nature, so when I am around happy people I make them even more happy, which in turn makes me happier :).

"How do you feel when you are around unhappy, negative people?" - I try to make them happy, make them laugh; but if they are cronically unhappy (by choice) and negative I confess I don't have the patience to let them dry my energies *nodding*.

"How will you act when you are around the people you like?" - the same as I do: happily and laughing :). When I love somebody I love him/her, and that's that (often I love too much, and subject myself to backstabbing, but oh well...there must be a reason for it, right?).

Oh my...I had come to wish you Happy New Year; but I couldn't resist...I just had to participate in this ;)!!!

I wish you and your family a Happy 2008!!!! May the new year be full of success, and may more people be ready for it :D!!!

Cheers

Colin,
Thanks for the tag and the comment.

Max,
Remember, you can't "make" someone happy. You can convince someone to choose happiness, which is what I believe you do.

If someone is chronically unhappy, yes, by choice, then there comes a time when you must move on.

YOU definitely "get it!"

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
