Break Out

It Is Not The End Of The World

We will all have our good days and bad days

If you were not here right now none of this would matter

But because you are and like me we live to see another day

Lets raise some eyebrows and do what we do best

Live life the way we want to and bring joy to others without trying

There are days we could spend all day crying

This is not one of those days

I am talking about grabbing the bull by the horns and making it your day

Changing up the bad and make it better

Looking at your day in a different perspective

How can we squeeze out success and still find room for us ?

How can we enjoy the pleasures that life brings without the bee stings

Sometimes it is not possible

Other times we have to take our lumps

But at no time do we have to throw the towel in

Just find a way to say I must do something to change my day around

I am better than that

I have struggled many times before and some how I found a way

Unconsciously or consciously

It doesn't matter

The point is we did it

We let that day go

We moved on and look what we have to show

A wonderfu life that we have infront of us today

One that is far from perfect

Has blemishes that we see

Look and look closely

Your day has the magic of sweet success

I can taste it like a homemade apple pie

Absolutely delicious!

So when you are down

No time to frown

Bring that energy level up

Look life and all it's mess and incorrectness

Life is not suppose to be perfect

It is suppose to be lived and shared by every person that dares

If other people say you are wrong

Tell them o.k. thanks for the advice but I have different plans

I am on my way to make today

A laugh,a hoot and a holler


We All Can Do Better

I know I can

I have tried and tried but with no success

I can not give up

I will not give up

I will not let myself quit

This is where I walk away and need time to myself

To reconsider each option

To see if my time is more important than the result

If it isn't then by all means go for it

If it is then it is time to change my mind and think of something else that pleases me

I have limited time in my life and the time I have I want it used appropriately

It is easy to get side tracked and lossed

I am my ultimate boss

I decide when enough is enough

When I feel I am better off spending my time somewhere else

I keep an eye on my life and my priorities

Then I can see where I have gone and where I a heading

I will not get caught up in the drama and side tracked down the dark alley

There is no time for dead ends and misguided steps

My vision is clear and my dreams our here

Lets do what it takes to make them happen

You are so right my friend.Everyone should take time to take time out. Like.......looking at the things that one consider small but in the inspection thereof he/she can know and understand that........they are very big things after all. I voted up.

raciniwa When you reach the bottom all you can go is up.I find it easy to swim.Back and forth.Back and forth.I keep learning to swim better with practice.Swim stands for Some Way I Must ... I made it up.It keeps me going when I hit a rough spot.I look and remember all the good times and then focus on them until I see them again.Thanx and as always have fun and enjoy everything that we can see,hear, feel and touch.It is a gift that so many people forget.
