You Better Watch Your Step

June 25, 2012

Today I was thinking  about the word Better..

We often use the word to express that someone is Better than so and so..

Or used as a threat, such as you Better or else…

Or to suggest in regards, to being concerned for ones safety..

What a funny word..

There will always be a better artist, a better photographer, a better musician, a better writer..

But there can only be a Better you and me..

We grace this world for a time..

Not to always be competing..

But to share the Better you..

With experience or not..

But with expression, from your point of view..

And if it’s from the heart..

You can’t go wrong..

For being the Better you..

    I’ve never thought about the varying usages of word “better” before…I’m guessing I’ll be better off once I do….and as you write…from the heart is better… : )

    Cuando las cosas se hacen con el corazón, salen estupendamente, como te ocurre a ti.

    Dear Roberta, “We grace this world for a time…” So true. Lovely meditation about heart and collaboration. Craft can be learned, but heart grows in another way. Thank you, Ellen

      Thank you Ellen! We all need a shoulder to lean on and help to keep our(my) balance.. (:

    It seems that “better” is for comparative use alone in categorizing people. I try to think of it as hope for tomorrow–have a better day; hope to be better at my skill tomorrow; to be a better person… Everything from the heart… Take care!

    This morning I was thinking about teenagers and how easy it can be to fall into friendships that are not healthy and maybe destructive. I suggest that we all choose our friends wisely…
