New Found Energy

Where Has The Pep Gone ?

Take the days your mind still wants to sleep and turn them around

When your body doesn't want to move for anyone or anything

There is a reason I have found

Your body has shut down

Turned into a lazy mode

Stuck in deep freeze

All you want to do is sleep

When you should of have had plenty of rest

Open those doors and windows wide to let the nice weather come inside

You have to bring the spring back to motion

You have reached an all time low

You need to be zapped into life

Instead of being sapped of your strength and power

First you have to eat to feed your body then your mind

Any movement no matter how slow will do

I know it is a struggle even to put  your sneakers on

Don't look back you are getting the momentum flowing

Now think of a couple of simple tasks to do

Make the bed you weren't going to leave all day

Tuck those pillows in instead of buring your head under so nice

Turn on a little music to get some thoughts foating in the air

Avoid what has put you here for the moment

We will handle that with care

Now we have to increase your blood flow

Now just stretch those muscles a little bit

Rub your arms and legs

Tighten your muscles one more time

You can now feel your power you poccess

Something has put you in this vegatative state

Now it is long gone and it can't come back today

Tell yourself I am going to keep going

I am going to keep doing what I WANT TO DO

I am finding what makes me happy

I am shaking that old feeling

I start with a sign of littlest positive emotion

What it feels to do those things I live for

It doesn't matter what others think

I have my own life to live

I have each day to give

I will do a few things that make me constantly pleased

I might want to go to the store and take a walk

Maybe I will read a book I haven't got to

Call a friend I lost touch with

Go to work with new enthusiasm

Seeing coworkers who are like me who would rather be off than working for their boss

But in some strange way

We are in this together to earn money to make things work

Soon my ideas have grown

I am making plans for tomorrow and the next

I have reached into my treasure chest of knowledge and experience

To tap into my hidden potential

I will maybe grab a basketball and shoot some hoops

I dust of those rollerblades and it give it a try

Pull out an old game of monopoly and play with a few friends

Go for a drive

Go to the beach and freeze my butt off as I go for a swim

Don't let your life fool you

You have so much more to do

Turn that grille on and make some lunch

There is nothing like the smell of food to put you in the mood

Take your neices or nephews out for a good game of minature golf

Take your mom out for a day of endless shopping

Go on the computer and check Facebook one more time

Cruise around You Tube for a few laughs

Be sure what ever you do

You do with style and your unique flair

It is time to start enjoying

Your life as long as you can
