Looking On

Updated on April 21, 2011

Time To Take More Action

I keep living and learning but then I find out something new

I haven't lived

New information that I read changes the way I see my world

Each time I think I have seen it all

I am blown away by a new discovery a new thought or concept

So my journey continues

Now I am more excited than ever to tell you what I think I know

I am always learning and I keep making mistakes and learn more

Thank God I have made so many mistakes and it keeps me trying to be better

I will never give up in my search for a better life

I have found happiness and love and many things that come with it

I will explain sometimes in a story or sometimes a poem

My LIfe began one day that I was unaware of

I soon was thrust into a world of change

Many things come to mind and many people I have met

Some people became life long friends and some just a name in passing

I steadily moved forward to my improved life

Wanting the best for my family and my close relatives and friends

Then I watched and seen how one sided the world really is

How they didn't seem to have my best interest in mind

Because if they did, they would be here trying to write this with me

They are not and I can honestly say they went in the opposite direction or far far away

So I had to rethink my future

What is this I want out of life ?

Do I still want to help people that don't have my back when I have theirs ?

The answer is yes

I am who I am not who they are

I know the difference between right and wrong

Two wrongs never make a right

I will be a better person despite what others think

I have my own personal agenda to keep

Maybe in time they will come around maybe they won't

They have their own life to live the way they see fit

Maybe I haven't met with the right people yet

If it is the wrong crowd I have been hanging around it is time for some new friends

We make choices all our lives

It is the action that we take that changes our direction

We can't always accept what we have as the best

Thinking that there is nothing more

We have to search out our own friends who complement who we are

They are the ones we feel so good around and make our day better

I am like so many other people I just got comfortable with where I was and who I am

Now I know it is not bad but I can and will do better

When I wanted someone else to carry me when I got tired there was no one

I had to rethink and see what was really going on

Did I believe that God would see me through any tough times that I would experience

The answer is yes without a doubt in my mind

He has given me all the tools and it is up to me to put them to good use

So here I am now

Using all my tools to carry me forward to the next level

It is like a computer game that goes on and on

I reach another level and I feel like I am starting over

In some ways I am but in other ways I have gained more skill and more experience and now I have to face my greatest challanges

I am not a bystander watching the world that I live in

I am living and breathing in a wonderful world that has so much to give

It is up to me and everyone else to find what they want out of life

Nike' the shoe company said it best Go for it !

It only took me about 30 years to understand that wonderful meaning to that simple message

So here I sit and later I will go on with what I know

I am living the best life I can and I am willing to share all my fascinating experiences with you

So in return you can learn as I have and go and Succeed beyond your wildest dreams !

Have the best day of your life with Gods blessings helping you too
