Can't It Wait

Updated on December 12, 2012

New Goals

Every so often we have to reevaluate our position

Like we are in the army and have to see if we are safe

Is the enemy near ?

Have we have advanced from yesterday or are we just holding our own

Once again we can relax

We are at peace time and there is no enemy here

Just a few hubs I want to write and lots of thoughts I want to make clear

The winter time makes me sleepy

I don't have the energy and the drive like I do in the hot weather

I look for ways to procrastinate

I want to curl up in a warm blanket and sleep

My ideas are present but my motivation is low

I have to snap out of it and this is what I do

I eat something to give me food for thought

Then I have to push myself forward

Not relaxing and leaning back

Then I will do what I have to do but not drive as far as I want to

I have to reach inside and find the littlest notion

That brings me out of my slumber state

Following my dreams that are sometimes so far away from my reality

I have to stay grounded but keep my head in the clouds

It is far from easy

It is the only task that pleases me

I have to bend over backwards and do research and find new approaches to old problems

There is always room for improvement and no time to be complacent

I have to keep score on what my progress has been and what direction I am heading

I push to new levels that I have not reached

This is where most people stop

They relax and find t.v. and other forms of entertainment to occupy their time

Writing is what helps me stay focused and can only improve when it is practiced

Whenever possible I put all my knowledge to the test

Bringing up old theories and new dreams

It reminds me of a woman screaming

How long can this go on before I take notice

Will this time be different than so many other times in my past

So I write and find more secrets and problems

It is up to me to distinguish and decipher

What will make me happier and what will give me more trouble.

What is my time worth ?

I turn all my effort in for a good days work

That is my prize that keeps me going

Sweet satisfaction is just wonderful

Until I can rework an old plan and make it in todays world

Giving something special and watching my dreams unfold

Like bifold doors as easy as snapping my fingers

Then I will have reached another peak

Where I am so proud and content

For now it is a lot of hard work and no stress

I have taken the words that I think and transformed them to paper

Writting my own plan of what I have to do

That will carry me through

      Hi Dream On...... I think you have something here...... We were meant to hybernate!!!!!

      I have zero energy as today is not as freezing as the past week but rain and dark days make me feel I´m moving around under a great heavy weight. Sheeesh! I should have been a squirrel.

      Gypsy Rose Lee The hours pass and I get a writing in.Then I look around and see all the other things I have to do.I wanted to clean up the back room.I have too much stuff.I have old writings I am trying to organize.Then there are meals to be made.Work later and so many projects I start but have little time to finish.I want to go through my old clothes and give some away.I have too many and they just fill up my closet and all I do is say some day I will wear them.Then I have many new ideas that take time to nuture and grow.I love to write and want to make it much more than a hobby.But for now I try to squeeze in a little of everything.I can easily get lost reading so many wonderful hubs.I will never get anything done.So I set limits all the time.I break them often.Thanx for reading and I hope you get more done than me today.

      You know that is the problem I have. Well not really a problem more of just not wanting to do anything else. I love to write and work on the comp. However in between nothing else gets done. I don't want to do anything else and there is so much to do like housework, cooking, cleaning etc. I have promised myself that I will make my house sparkling for the holidays and in the New Year take one day a week for my chores and getting out in the fresh air and doing my shopping and that day work at the comp at night. The rest is for my writing pleasure.
