I Want To Be The Best Me I Can Be

Updated on December 12, 2012

Make It Happen

Life is filled with so many things we can not control

The weather for one

It changes day to day without our help

The second thing we can not control

Other peoples actions and lives

Life is filled with so many choices we all have to decide what is good or bad

Then there are things that we have complete control

Deciding what person we choose to be every day

No matter what happens in our life

It is up to us to decide

We can let others guide us in the right direction

In the end it is our decision that turns the wheels of our future

If we think and use our mind we can have a life filled with great promise

If we make the wrong choices we will often suffer from the bad decisons

Getting ourselves in endless trouble and many problems to come

Take the time to think about your own life and where you want to be

Pretend you won the lottery

A brand new life is yours for the asking

Take care of your body first without good health your life will be a constant struggle

Make the right decisions and choices that will take our life in a place where you want to be

Learn from your mistakes and help others when you can

We are not sure how many years we will live on this earth

I only know if I make today a good day I am happy and I love that feeling

Tomorrow won't haunt me and I don't have to keep looking over my shoulder

Then another day will come

I begin again

To make the best choices I possibly can that will help not hurt others or myself

Then I am on my way

To explore the person I adore

The good inside of me

The person I always wanted to be

Bubbles out and does it's thing naturally

That will leave a trail

Far and wide

That I never have to hide

I can continue on and one day I will look back

To see a life filled with the greatest things I have done on earth

That have made my life a pleasure and not a pain

A joy and not endless aggrivation

Happy as I can be in a world where I am always proud to say thats me

      shiningirisheyes I had years of helping others and I figured I would always have time for me.Well they all learned to manage with or later without my help.I was the only one that gave too much and didn't do what I wanted or could of.Now I make more time for me and still help others.Thanx for reading and sharing.

      Words to live by. I learned the hard way that others actions must not control my life plan. I also found there was nothing wrong with putting myself first some of the time,

      Great positive message

      A very admirable sentiment! I am engaged in a project of self-re-creation at the moment, and you know what? It feels great! Being a better me is my goal. Being the best person they can be and achieving their full potential should be everyone's goal.
