A Time To Think

Updated on August 7, 2014

How Could We Forget ?

I don't mean the every day I'm up

I am moving

Going to work

Cooking supper

Saying hi to my neighbors

Talking to my wife or kids

Not both at the same time

That is a little to much to ask

These are things we do that become routine

Without thought or effort

Like we are on speed dial

Just press a button and done

I am talking about real thinking

Taking the time to write about our day and how we really feel

No holding back

Picking a subject that really bothers you and writing your views

Asking all the right questions

Who what when and where and sometimes why ?

Are my beliefs valid ?

Have my beliefs changed over the years and I didn't notice

Have I been to preoccupied with doing not living ?

It is easy not to think ?

Let me go to work and do my job and don't bother me

What do you want from me ?

Haven't I done enough ?

Either in a marriage , relationship or friendship

Remembering a x friend who no longer exists in my life

They crossed me one time to many

I am done

It was never my fault

They should of known better

How many people have we known to fall in this category ?

It was a long time ago

I don't want to talk about it

This is a touchy subject nobody wants to mention

Family or friends who are takers

After all I did for them

They treat me this way

Can you hear yourself ?

I know I can

Their are many childhood dreams that went bust

Now years later I never thought what if I pursued that

Where would I be today ?

More often than not

I am so happy I didn't go in that direction

The things that I thought were going to be just fine


When I first moved I use to think often what would life be like if I got my wish

I was so happy just were I was

I forgot that my neighbor I loved so much died ?

They built three new houses around the corner

Construction on the highway

The taxes went even higher

That would of been a pain every day

Now that I think of it

Moving was the right choice

I loved living their then and I love visiting now

To live a rewarding life

We should evaluate what we have at different times

Sometimes we keep reliving the old memories

What we forgot is some of the real facts

Now I can honestly say giving it more thought

I am glad I have made the choices I did

I wasn't so sure then

Deep down we always want our life to be the best it possibly can be

Now that we dug up a lot of old feelings and emotions

I gave you so things to think about

I remember this saying over and over when I was growing up

Nobody said life was going to be easy

Now I would like to add another line and give it a proper ending

If we didn't do what we did we wouldn't be who we are today

      You know that's true. We are who we are and the best thing about it all is if we like ourselves and can say we are our own best friends first and foremost.
