Come Sit By Me A While.: But What If I Don't Succeed ???

Updated on June 19, 2013

Good day to you all and it is as always so nice to see you here today ; even more so than usual!!!

My partner (Dai) thought that not many of you would turn up today because I've stopped offering you Chocolate Biscuits and moorish cakes.

However I knew you would be here and I am sure that you wouldn't want to eat that junk when you know I am on a diet !!!

Who sniggered there ??

Mm right I shall carry on and pretend I didn't hear it then; but I have eyes and ears on you all!! !!!

Dai also said that I had become a miserable Mooo since I've been on this diet !!!

I bet you are all as socked as I am by his mean words !!!!

Mm no reply but I know that silence is a disgust at his daft words. You cannot quite find that fitting word I know and understand.

Me miserable ????As if could ever be said of me!!

I shall bring out my diet milkshake and you all help yourselves to the fresh fruit salad that is in the fridge.

Are we all comfy ??

Right now then today's hub is about moving onto a new era in life ;moving onwards and upwards can be a little fearful at times but so exciting and self-satisfying also.

I am in the first waves of setting up a new business . I won't elaborate any further yet as I need to look into it properly.

I thank you all so very much again (my hub family)I share no names on here as I am sure to miss someone out .

My confidence has grown and my writing stretched to a length I never thought I could reach.

I am a very different person to the one who joined HubPages back in 2010 and I always come back to the time when I thought that it was impossible to make friends online. Today I stand higher that any one and admit that I was so very wrong.

Every single one of you on here matter so much to me and I feel so very rich ;not on the materialist way but where it matters right here in my heart and soul ; my spiritual world.

You have left so many kind ,caring and supportive comments on my hubs .

You have made me laugh and you have made me cry ;many of these times they are tears of laughter while some others being tears of compassion .

When I have been down you have all come forward to help; I can share my beautiful family with you all on here too and visa versa .

Knowing that my poetry/stories are helping so many others on here gives me more than I could ask for.

Lately I have also developed a great interest in photography and also designing collages etc. from my own photos.

I never knew until these past weeks that I seem to have a flair in this direction too ;hence this idea of a new creative project of mine.

My gut instinct tells me I am on the right road but my mind tells me to read all the small print thoroughly before taking the next step.

I shall share my weekly progress with you all in this series of 'Come Sit By Me A While' hubs and they will include all of my ups and downs.

Will probably/hopefully make humorous reading and I am so looking forward with a stirring of excitement and trepidation as I am entering another great era.

More will be revealed in next week's hub and hopefully I will have made those very first steps into a time of great success .

I can hardly contain myself !!!

One quote I always remember is :_

"Believe that you can and you will be halfway there" by Theodore Roosevelt.

Right are we all seated ??

Oke doke we shall begin.


A glimmer of hope

a brand new road

bright days ahead

but what if I don't succeed...................??

Will it work

will I succeed

my heart so tempted

but what if I don't succeed.........................................??.

The advice of other

I should follow

there is so much faith

But what if I if I don't succeed.................... ??

Through my heart

brightens deeply

a bleak dark corner

illuminations from within

I force myself to

think of wonders

But what if I don't succeed.......................??

Now I feel that misty horizon

lifted to show

golden moments

so fine for all

a world so eager

But what if I don't succeed...................??

Bright joyous days I see for sure

in a moment of true belief

the seed is planted

caressed and believed

But what if I don't succeed.........................??

A warmth a love

of all I'm about

my friends you are

like no other

you are lifting me onto a higher plateau

I'm sure I will succeed.........................!!

I feel my heart and soul lift

higher and higher

up to enchanted pastures

so fresh so new

a wondrous gift

I share with you all

And I now truly know I will succeed.................................!!!


Belief is a gift

yours to own

You heart flies

up and not down.

Those first few steps

are great moments;

Your legacy to survive

in great excitement.

Success is wondrous

a feeling of true freedom

A sprinkling beauty

and an once of wisdom.


Today I begin

A brand new era for me;

Excitement rising.


All negatives fade

In their place sweet positives

A wondrous new world


I sing and I skip

Happiness to fill my world

My very first step.


I now see myself

A leader of my domain

Success so wondrous.


Happy days ahead

Let's throw caution to the wind

We'll bask in success.


My heart now so full

A new era a-dawning

Movements now forward.


Side step obstacles

Our heads we'll hold so high

Great pride a-dawning.


I hope that you all enjoyed this hub and that it may in turn help you onto that very first step too.

It may be a totally different project to mine but this is not important.

The ebb and flow of hope,fear,certainty or uncertainty is the same .

May others are stirring you on but your self belief is like a piece of elastic ; you make great progress and this dream is almost within your reach ; just a tiny bit more ; but oh no once again it will catapult you back into non belief again.

This ebb and flow will continue in this fashion for a while but in the end that restricting elastic will finally SNAP !!

You will be free to stretch those wings and to fulfil that dream .

      Yes, Eddy, you will succeed! For if you don't succeed in the manner in which you wish, you dared to try something new and you already understand the important things in life! I love coming to your hubs for the intros as much as the poetry. So very inviting. I can almost picture a sort of television lens with you on the other side welcoming in your viewers with open arms, but in this case it is readers. ;)

      eiddwen Wow another hub of love that is stunning. Your heartfelt words and story really touch a heart chord in me girl. I can relate. Change can be fearful. You have already succeeded girl. Keep your eyes on the vision and not on an issue that pops up. Those issues will be worked out. I do not think you came this far to be tossed into the ocean. We have the power to change our thoughts when Ole ugly fear tries to come in. Keep focused on the prize. No man can shut the door that God has opened.

      Your pictures are a delight to behold. I am blessed stopping in for a read tonight. God Bless your journey girl. You are a success!! My Love, Skye

      I can tell from your tone that you are chipper and ready to rip into it! And thank you so much for the lovely fruit salad--that is one of my favorites, my dear friend ;) Pearl

      I have been there several times in my lifetime, Eddy, and it is scary for sure. All you can do is make sure you have done your homework and made sure that it is feasible. Then dive in and give it your best shot. Failure only occurs when you do not try. :)

      Best wishes my friend and of course,

      I am sure you will succeed and remember, success does not always look or materialise how we imagine it is going to be!
