Change Up The Pace

When We Have Hit The Wall

Back up a bit and be careful not to fall

In our minds we think we have tried everything

But the facts still face us head on

What we have done needs some improvement

Even though we don't know which way to go

That is when we don't forget how far we have come

We just look for another way to crack that nut

I found when I am stumped I change the pace

Too often we get bored doing the same old thing

No matter how much we loved it to begin with and in time it shows

We lose an edge that has to be sharpened ever so carefully

Touching base with our inner feelings is following the direction of our heart

Refocus and begin to make changes that are invisible to the naked eye

Over time you will see you on your way to a bigger and brighter day

So very true! I think every one experiences this and for the better. Without falling down we would never have to get back up. Starting over or realigning your life is one of the ways we grow and become stronger. Nice write and thanks for the reminder of inspiration!

This is so true, even when it comes down to my poetry. I wish I could sit on my computer all day and write, but if I don't take breaks and do other things my writing becomes so stale.

SkySlave So often I get preoccupied with things that only matter to me.I have to learn to let go and find what really is important.Falling down I do quite well I haven't broke any bones yet.shara63 Women pace themselves so much better.They are very good a multitasking too.It is never to late to learn.PHILLYDREAMER I force myself to walk away and I am glad I did later.At the moment I get slightly aggrivated and upset.That I have so many other things that require my immediate attention writing has to wait.Thanx to everyone and have a fantastic day!

shiningirisheyes Life has so many struggles but as we share are troubles we can also enjoy our accomplishments when they finally come.It is so nice to find the support and love when we need it the most.I feel great when I see and feel others who follow the same path.In the end we will be there for each other through it all.

I love"touching base with our inner feelings is following the direction of our heart." That says it all.

picklesandrufus Without it I am done before I start.I feel so happy and relaxed just to know my life is what I have molded it to be.Sometimes just a little and sometimes unfinished.Most of all pleased with what I have accomplished and on the way to making it better every day.Thanxs for reading and sharing the same thoughts.

Dream On...run in the rain..dance up a storm...yell and scream at the top of your voice..laugh til your sides hurt...it doesn't necessarily eabletake the problem away...but..it puts the prob on the back burner for a while....love your hubs..they are so down to earth...and relateable !!!!

kj force To often we feel blah.No energy , no thoughts just in a state of lul.You have found so much wisdom and knowledge I am listening to you.Learning as I walk no run through life.Sometimes backwards.The whole idea is to live and enjoy the things that come are way.To take the time to appreciate what we see and not always expect it to be easy.Enjoy the adventure and off to a whole new world.Up up up and away we go.I love reminders and the positive attitude that surrounds me from my friends. On with a new day and I found a box of encouragement to carry me farther.Thanx so much and I will leave now but be back later with more fun ways to spice up the day.

raciniwa i think we all have to stop and take a deep breath then we can enjoy life so much more.Remember no stress and a lot more loving feelings that start with you as the core and slowly work their way out.Special thanx to you.
