Do Something That Matters

Updated on November 22, 2015

Help The World

Each of us can make a difference

We have to know that

To many people believe the world is too far gone

With that negative attitude we are defeated before we even start

It isn't long before we pass our opinion on to others

Children and friends

People live with a chip on their shoulder

Life has done them wrong

Somewhere in their past

Unfortunate and horrible things have happened

I don't know why or if it could of ever been prevented

I do know there are so many good things in life

That give us everything to live for

A beautiful life and people are waiting for you

There for the asking

Wanting and needing you

To share your life

Good times and all the joys that follow

It's a way to take back our life

Feeling good once again

Waking up with great plans

Making each day worthwhile and filled with nonstop love

Look around and open your eyes

Like a new born

With everything to be thankful for

Breathing is our biggest miracle

Stop running away

Plant your feet firmly on the ground

Repeat after me

I am here to stay

I am here to help and be helped

By people who are good

Who every day raise their family

With good values and thoughts

We can share our darkest hours

Because we know

More than ninety percent of our life


Those good times are as good as it gets

Funny and keeping us up late

Dreams keep coming true

Take the blinders off

Making people laugh and wanting

We are capable of so much more

Get started right now

That's my final offer

      annart I agree with you. Helping starts at home. If we feel good about ourselves we can't help but show others. It comes automatically. We are not in competition or out to impress. We just feel good about what we do and want other people to feel the same. No pressure. It reminds me of watching children playing on a swing set. They just swing away. Laughing and having so much fun. Out in the open where everyone can see. When I watch them I want to jump right in. Who couldn't use a little more fun in their life. I learn from other people and children all the time. I wouldn't trade family time for anything. Unfortunately only so much time in a day. When I find the time to write I try to use my best words possible to express my deepest emotions. My wife doesn't always understand when I say I want to write. She has many other plans on her mind. We compromise and there is a give and take. Sometimes one of us gets what they want and other times things have to wait. A learning process. Thank you for your honesty and kindness. For me life never goes as planned. It is more like scrambled eggs how many times can you beat them before they come out fluffy and nice. I hear my wife calling me. What did I do, or didn't do now. Have a great day.

      It's important to do something that matters, to the world, to others, to ourselves. We have to tend to the self if we want to feel our worth then that in turn gives us the push to do the rest I think.

      I am attempting to catch up here at the moment, as family has demanded quite a bit lately - not that I'm complaining of course.

      Good thoughts!

      DDE I love to read and hear about people doing well. I believe if you have the right friends we can all succeed. It starts by working towards a common goal and sharing our knowledge as we go. I believe in doing the same things you are doing.Thank you for reading and sharing.Have a wonderful night.

      I enjoy reaching my goals. I make sure to enjoy what I do. To write and share something helpful to others. I prefer to be in the company of good people.

      Gypsy Rose Lee I know very little about the computer and less about the net. Some how I run out of time but I am back at it the next day to find a breakthrough. I appreciate all your comments. Some days I don't know if I am coming or going. Wishing you both a Happy Thanksgiving. I think no matter where we live it is important to find at least one day a year to rest and give thanks.

      I am always trying to do something meaningful on the net and I work on my content work but sometimes it just gets to be a bit much.
