Making Your Life Exceptional

Updated on June 13, 2013

Begin Here

When you take an ordinary day and make it a classic

There is no need to worry

Practice until you get it right

You have been given all the tools

Now it is up to you

Our brains can think up anything we want

Now we have to tell our conscious mind we are going to make it happen

No matter how irrational it may seem

We are going beyond all boundaries known to man

Having fun doing what we do best

Giving ourselves credit for working so hard and smart

Learning more each day

Letting nothing get in our way

We have the patience and persistence to see anything to the end

Look around and pick a friend

LIfe is so much more fun when we help each other to do better

It takes a little more time in the beginning to get started

Once the ball is rolling

Look out world

The best is yet to come

The power we have is so strong we can learn to harnesse it

As long as we have a vision

We are going to show the world how

Start small and keep working your way to the top

If you fall back you have close friends to catch you

Your own personal safety net

As they know you would do the same for them

We start with one hundred years

Take the first twenty years just to get our feet wet

Learning and having more fun than anyone

Now when we hit twenty one it is time to set some goals

We have watched other people all our lives do good and bad

I like to think of life as a baseball game in progress

Now it's our time up at bat

Don't get caught looking

Wait for the right pitch

Swing and keep your head down

Follow through

That is what every good coach will tell you

It is better to have struck out trying

Than missing every opportunity

Life is a sport

One not much talked about until now

It is not baseball but it has it's similiarities

We can find every sport a little similiar and make plans to adapt

Playing the sport called life has so many advantages

Each day we get all the exercise we ever need

Sometimes we get to play in the worst of weather

We can yell and scream when we get excited and noone worries

Everyone wants to be on the best team

Now that's not going to happen

You have a good team and a not so good one later

Changing constantly as often as you do your underwear

You make your mother proud

Each day giving life your best shot

Remembering you are what counts

You can pull out the play books and the diagrams

These tips may help but nothing is written in stone

Sometimes you have to just wing it and hope for the best

In the end you will have a wonderful life filled with so much adventure

You will never get bored

So as you follow my lead

I follow someone elses footsteps too

There is no first

Only come on catch up

I am waiting for you

So take whatever you do and make it really special

Give it your own personal twist

Some people say they have luck on their side

I laugh and say why does the good ever have to go away

I see God warming up in the batters box

So I do the best I can

I know only good can follow

Relax and have fun

You will be surprised how fast you can run

When you are having a great time and everyone is cheering

You never miss out on anything

Because you are where you want to be

So if we walk by each other quickly or I bumb into you by mistake

Don't get mad

I didn't mean it

I will be o.k. as long as you are

Give me a big smile and a good old fashioned handshake

Then we both will make the day nice

A little dejavu

Since we have met before and will meet again

In this wonderful world we both live in

Waiting for the day you hit that home run

      shanmarie I think I am going to make that my new mantra. If we don't try and fail we haven't tried enough.The world is not perfect and we all have flaws.Accept who we are and try to become the person we would be proud of at all times.What else could anybody else want in life?Thanx for reading and commenting on my humble hub.

      It's better to have struck out trying than to miss every opportunity. I love those lines.

      Kathryn Stratford It makes every day a game.Today went into extra innings when I decided to write a hub instead of going to bed.Thanx so much for all your comments.I will try not to make tomorrow a boring day.Look up in the sky...Never mind it was just another one of my foul balls.I just can't seem to hit straight if my life depended on it.Maybe it's time I sit on the bench and watch you hit a Grand Slam!Good luck no pressure.
