Have you ever watched a video of the vocal folds in action? It is actually quite amazing. Such small structures, but they have the power to help us do the one thing we all want to do—-communicate. It is amazing just how fast they move and how much they can do. Everything must work together to let the vocal folds do their job though, therefore if one system is not right, communication may never be possible.
P.S. I get to look at my own vocal folds tomorrow :)
A lonely fisherman—-
As he sat on the dock with his fishing pole in one hand and his beer in the other, he thought to himself, ”What is my higher purpose, what should I be doing with my life?”Except he answered this question himself. He realized he is supposed to live the simple life and continue being happy. That’s his purpose.
Never withhold from saying what you truly want to say. It often does not do us any good to keep our true feelings locked up inside. Let the words flow from your mouth, because yes, they could be harmful, but they could also be the same words that will change your life forever. Say what is on your mind and maybe you will help someone out who had trouble seeking assistance.
Ever feel as if you will collapse from the weight of the world? What do you do to avoid the inevitable slip between the cracks of your life? The thing is, you can’t avoid the collapse but you can grow from it. Let it happen and then look back on it. Realize that there is always something there to help you pick yourself up. Realize you are never alone in life.
An overt personality, thats what I used to be. Always wanting to tell more about myself and ready to experience new things. Except now, it has turned into constantly having my head buried in work and worries. Always wanting to succeed, never wanting to fail. Feeling lost in my own skin and as if nothing is ever good enough. Amazing how something can change you or how those who have left you still have an impact and make you feel insignificant.
There they were…on the forefront of a new discovery. Except, what did this really mean? Would it bring them fame and success or did they not want that? Perhaps they should keep quiet. Keep their little discovery a secret and not let the world get involved. They had discovered the true meaning of love and wonder…was it selfish to keep it for themselves?
Don’t let it spiral out of control. Stand your ground and take it all one step at a time. Try to leave your comfort zone, but remain aware of your roots and the person you are. Spiraling downward is not the answer, spiraling into new adventures is what you want to strive towards. Live, but be cautious…for one never knows where their path will take them.
There they stood. Hand in hand, eyes looking toward the starlit sky. Moments together seemed perfect. He smiled, she smiled…life was OKAY. The breeze gently brushed against their cheeks, sending a shiver up both of their spines. This is where they were meant to be…this is where life had taken them.
A baggy sweatshirt and jeans…unkempt hair, no makeup. That’s what she liked though. She never found it necessary to have to be something she’s not. Isn’t that what life is supposed to be? You should never be afraid to look like a mess, wear what you want, feel whatever you feel like feeling. Don’t worry about all the structure, JUST LIVE.
She didn’t do it. Tears streamed down her face as the cops took her away. How is it they could apprehend the victim instead of the man who committed the crime? How could they be so oblivious to the details? She still felt as though women were simply seen as the lower sex of the nation. What was it going to take to get respect and for people to realize she wasn’t asking to be hurt?
