Two Shoes Tuesday Prompts for March 31st

Two Shoes Tuesdsay
 
Welcome to Two Shoes Tuesday...  a place for those who love to write!

There are two word prompts to choose from... you can use whichever one inspires you. You are not required to include them both. You do not have to include the prompt word, but please use it as the theme for your post. You are welcome to write a post for each prompt word, if you like. Posts unrelated to either word prompt will be deleted from the link list.

Your contribution must be in the form of an original poem, essay, or short story (fiction or non-fiction), and it must be a new piece - not something drawn from your other writings or archives.

Your link must go directly to your post for Two Shoes Tuesday, and somewhere in the post you must provide a link to Two Shoes Tuesday.  It doesn't need to be big or fancy, just a text or logo link at the end of your post will be fine. You can add a link anytime through next Monday. 

Please take some time to visit as many of the other TST participants as possible during the week, we all love feedback on our efforts!  Feel free to email me at jts.2000@yahoo.com if you have any questions.
 
The March 31st writing themes to choose from are:

FANTASY and FOOL

Please remember that the THEME of your post must be related to the prompt
 you choose, rather than it just appearing as a word somewhere in your post!

The Great A to Z Theme Reveal - March 23, 2015

Are you participating in the amazing A to Z Challenge this year?  It begins on Wednesday, April 1st, and it's not too late to sign up if you haven't already done so!  You'll find the link to the sign-up page on the top of my sidebar.  I've participated in the A to Z three years now, and find it to be quite an adventure.  Such a great way to get back into the habit of daily posting, and a wonderful way to make some amazing new friends!

Today I'm joining in the Theme Reveal link-up along with the many A to Z participants who have opted to use a theme for their posts during the Challenge.  This gives us and opportunity to check out some of the other bloggers who will be participating and see what they intend to write about.

So far 2015 has proven to be somewhat challenging for me, so I've decided to go with a theme that will provide me, and hopefully others who drop by, with some reasons to feel good...
Each day in April I'll be sharing a short list of things corresponding to the alphabet letter of the day that encourage and uplift me, the little things that make smile.  I hope you'll join me, and maybe add some of your own in the comments each day! 
Those of you who participate in my Two Shoes Tuesday writing prompt during April will be able to choose the A-Z letter assigned to each Tuesday as one of your theme options that week.
Two Shoes Tuesdsay
I'm really looking forward to blogging A to Z with you in April!  Leave a comment if you stop by so that I can drop over for a visit at your blog too!

Perfectly Imperfect


I am uncomfortable around perfect people (or those who believe that they are).  Sometimes their halos seem to fit a bit on the tight side, affecting their ability to perceive things clearly.  Nothing is more tiring than being around someone who feels superior, has all the right answers, and thinks they do everything the right way... as opposed to others of course, and they are usually quick to point this out.  That "air of superiority" is often more like noxious gas.  I don't abide people like that for long... the "holy ones" who feel that all the rest of us pathetic creatures are somewhat beneath them.  Not surprisingly, some of the people I've been able to communicate with most openly and befriend on a deeper level were far from perfect, in fact they were on the other end of the spectrum - about as screwed up as me in their own ways, just sometimes in a more visible manner.  I don't seek perfect people to be friends with, I seek people who are real... open, honest, and refreshingly human in their thoughts, emotions, and actions.  You don't have to be anything like me to be my friend, you just have to be true to yourself, and willing to embrace your own imperfection.  I do not strive for perfection, I strive to be good and kind.  If you are headed in that direction, there is no doubt we can be good friends.

I'm linking up with Patricia's blog hop In Other Words

without imperfections will never find what he seeks."
