Start The Day Off Right

It Can't Wait

Life is too short

Don't let today slide away




Because tomorrow is so far away

Find things that make you happy

You will be so glad you did

Even the things that bother you

Can be looked at with the microscopic eye

It's way too easy to stay in bed

You not losing your mind

I know what it's like

To be so busy and that's cool

It's all good

We all have to realize

We have to live life at our own pace

Otherwise you will never be happy

Out of place

Always trying to get back lost time

We will feel like a mouse and a rat race

So take a minute

Tell the world how you feel

Nobody may listen

There are many people that care

Each of us struggling in are own way

Don't get disappointed or down

You're just ahead of your time

Continue on your day

Don't be surprised

If some time in the future life makes sense

You had the right idea

So give it all you got

Then give it a little bit more

I'll be laughing with you

Don't be surprised if I'm holding the door

You're so refreshing, my dear! You know how to embrace the new day, no-matter-what, without complaining or finding fault! Hugs.

"So give it all you got Then give it a little bit more." I take this to heart; seems like regret may set in if we don't. Your messages are always so practical.

I've added my comment 3 times but it hasn't appeared on your hub!

Nellieanna This time I left all three comments for many reasons. My first was your words are a perfect pick me up on a sad day. The second is they looked so good under my hub how could I delete one. Without reading glasses on I was on cloud eleven. I skipped over cloud nine because it was were everyone else was. The third reason is each time I read a comment over I read my hub again. To get the feel of vibes. What was I thinking when I was writing it. Do I feel the same way now. It gives me time to look for mistakes since I don't use spell check because I want to learn the old fashioned way. My friends here on Hubpages help me and guide me through the ropes. I learn by writing and sometimes my mind wants to say something the way I feel it and there are not always words for it's meaning. I get Hubpages alerts and they take it down because they feel it was a poorly written hub. I would like to tell them you are missing the point. For years I worked with the public and had to count back change. That's what we did. To make sure I could double check myself and ensure few mistakes. Years later they developed computers with a change button so you can see how much money to give back. Now today young adults don't even know how to count their change because they got lazy and relied on a computer to do their work. I may be stubborn and old school but I am keeping my brain alert and active while some people are not. In time I will be far better off even though a computer generated message thinks not. I want to let my readers know I am a real person who is far from perfect and never want to be perfect. Way to much pressure and then what is the sense of being number one when I can be number 1,001 and gaining ground because once I was number 3,004. I think many things are wrong with this world. Then I also think many more things are great and I am willing to love each one of the most I possibly can. They say you can't know a person until you walk in their shoes. I say you haven't lived life till you have walked barefoot across the grass. Thank you for all your help today and in years past. I want all my love to explode so everyone gets a little piece and everyone gets to share and put all the love back together. Wouldn't that be fun.

MsDora If you noticed I left a space in my hub when I said the line don't let today slide away because I want you to wait as you read the next line Because tomorrow is so far away. Many people may not get my sense of humor but it is who I am. One day can be seen a thousand different ways and have a million different meanings. The key is to share and the give and take makes it special. We don't live in a vacuume. We live in a world with so many people that makes life exciting and different. Thank you for the lovely compliment and I hope to make you laugh in future hubs as well. May your dreams be puffy and white and as large as the clouds I see up in the sky. Thank you so much.

You are an inspiration, dear Dream On. I've not been as active on Hubpages lately, but I like to visit your hubs because they're always and inevitably uplifting! So are your comments.

I fully agree with your determination to do it 'the old fashioned way'! So much is lost by letting the computer do so much which people have done for ages which has developed our abilities to think and to reason. If we stop doing all those things and think mostly of the more trivial matters, of course our abilities to think and reason will suffer. I still write my poetry on paper with pen. It affects the way it's expressed in ways it can't be when typed, though I'm trying to transcribe all the thousands of poems of my lifetime to print, for backup. There is vale in being able to use the computer, but not if one relies on it to do one's thinking.

That's a shame that some of your hubs you've deliberately let BE as you write them, without editing, for the special meanings and effects of that first-put-down BEING are not allowed by some computer robot over-seer.

It's like the way my poetry expresses something special the way I wrote it first. Those with perception would see the special meaning, but a robot is like people become being tools of computers! haha. Yes, many things wrong with this world, but it hasn't been perfect for a long time - if ever! There are improvements, so we all have work to do!

I notices the space between ". . . . .Don't let today slide away

and

Because tomorrow is so far away. . . .".

At first, I was waiting for a picture or something to appear there and fill in the blank space, but then I realized that it represented distance between the NOW and any future which may (or may to) happen and knew you left it blank to illustrate the point you were making. Not only is the future to far away -- it never IS future if and when it happens! It's another today which a person will treat the same as all the others -- either living it for itself or wasting it waiting for some other time to come. So wise, you are, and also good at expressing things that are not always easy to express so others will fully understand.

Who one IS is the important thing to know and to appreciate. It's what is RIGHT, even though it's not perfect.

Yes, BEING 1001 at a given time far outweighs a grasped or pretended not-really-being #1. And as you so wisely point out, perfection is not desirable, anyway. I've tended to try for 'perfection' a lot of my life, but I realized what is better is to be as good as I can be without sacrificing who I am at each time, as my life unfolds and as I learn more.

Also, perfect, if it were possible, would be static, not alive. Why would it need to be alive, to change, to learn, to be useful, or to gain ground, (as you) - if already 'there' and perfect? B-O-R-I-N-G. And insufferable. No, not a happy state of being! So, I thank goodness, I am NOT perfect and I, also, don't want to be! I'm not too sure what level I am, but it's far from perfect and I feel alive and interested in every moment, still - at 84! No reason to lose that joy of being alive!

Yes, you are right. Individually, being real and sharing our enthusiasm and love is what could put it all back together, person by person. In the meantime, it's being uplifted and improved as far as each light shines.

Nellieanna Off to work in a few minutes but I wanted to break my own rules and leave just a quick comment. Your words touch my heart. In life I have had the pleasure of experiencing great love. There were also a few sad times and with that comes unhappy moments. I vowed to myself I would do everything in my power to take those uncomfortable gut wrenching feelings and work through them to see one thing positive. Then try my best not to ever put someone else in that helpless, lonely, lost feeling. Then why not do something special. Make people feel good any way I know how. Because I don't have any special talent or gift I have to create one. Picking fun of my life and what I do, should of done and didn't, wanted to do and forgot about or never got around to it. Then people all kinds of people all over the world could realize life isn't or ain't that bad.If your hurting maybe for a second I can make you forget and for that second I can hear or see your laugh. I will always be listening. I want to feel that joy that runs through me like a locomotive going full steam ahead. I want to feel the wind against my face almost blowing me over. I want to experience the pounding rain that soaks me right down to the bone. I want to feel the sun so bright it warms The bottom of my feet where nobody ever sees. That's life and living. To breath each breathe and feel the air circulate through my lungs like a washing machine on spin cycle. I may not know how to take apart a car engine and put it back together. I may not be able to cook a fine gourmet dinner. I can't fly a plane or do a heart transplant. All those things I leave to professionals. What I can try to do is make a sad day better. A tear in your eye dry up or turn to sweet tears of joy. maybe that taste little apple crumb cake instead of salt. What I can do is see into the huge grey skies that come before rain and bring out a rainbow of color to captivate and make your jaw drop. if not I can take the mud that gets all over your mothers floor and make into a work of art. That is before she makes me clean it up. I can wake up tired and exhausted and pull energy that no one is using to spring me back into life. How long it lasts I don't know. Where it goes I can let you know. It goes to every person who loves life and wants to show other people to live life. I want to give the person who developed the words Live Love Laugh on signs everywhere the biggest hug. What a way to live life every day. So with this I say today is Good Friday. Many people all over the world would agree. I want to create a Good Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,Thursday, Saturday and Sunday too. Thank you for reading and giving so much love and faith.

You said it all, my friend. A worthy and elegant aim for your life - and you accomplish it in all your hubs, and, I have no doubt, all the more so in your real everyday life. You certainly give me a lift! Hugs.

Nellieanna You have to be the fastest reader I know. I made a mistake on my hub and was trying to fix the ending and after I did your comment was right before my eyes. Thanks so much and I just ate a delicious slice of pizza I can offer you one. So tasty and homemade. My wife made it with extra mushrooms and onions. Thin crust so healthier for you and when you bite into it you make a loud crunch. I think I even woke up my cat. I know we can only help ourselves and with that I offer the biggest helping. I believe the world that I see is made for everyone to see. Have a Nellie and Anna day. Like peanut butter and jelly put together perfectly. Just the right amount so don't squeeze too tight but enjoying all you do

Oops -- sorry to rush you! I simply had replied while I was here on the comments page, to make sure I didn't put it off and let it slip my mind!

That pizza does sound tasty! Thank you.

Yes -- a Nellie and Anna combination for me for enjoying a balanced time!
