On With My Day

Updated on July 17, 2011

Pressed For Time

When we think we are alone

We are not

When we think it always happens to us

This is a fabrication of the mind

It is our way of trying to make us feel insecure and uneasy

Maybe it was something from our past that holds us back

It is time to let those feelings go

We can only do so much and as long as we know we have tried our best

That is good enough

This day will end and aother day will begin and we will have the chance to start trying all over again

There are times like these that we have to be happy with what we have accomplished and be pleased

We have to take a step back and refocus

If we are not careful we can believe the wrong assumption

That will lead us to a downward spiral

We will soon feel a variety of moods

Depressed and sad

Aggrivated and just peeved

All these emotions have no place in our life

So it is time to catch our breath

Understand life doesn't always follow a pattern

Each day can be different from all the others

Even when we do good we need time to rest

We can stop and think what are the most important things in our life

How do we want to work towards those goals ?

At the same time keep farther away from things we don't need

When we get all caught up in the moment it is easy to get carried away

Take a few minutes to reflect on the people in your life and see if they are helping you achieve your true desires

Everything in life has a purpose

It is up to each one us to find the time to understand what the purpose might be

Then we can turn a disappointing day to one that makes us eagerly satisfied

For we may only have a smile that shines from cheek to cheek

As our mind turns new thoughts of peace and to the love of mankind

      Indeed, everything in life has a purpose. I'm one of those persons who can't keep still, multi-tasking, fast pace, high pressure, those were the types of environments I enjoyed and thrived in. Unfortunately, I was burning the candles at both ends and my body let me knew about it.

      That development in my life brings vividly to my mind this particular line in your hub, "We can stop and think what are the most important things in our life." I needed to slow down and learn to take things easy and slow for a change. Very difficult at first but now I'm slowly getting the hang of it. Thanks for sharing this Dream On, keep them coming.

      I love each line but one that I need with urgency to ponder on is this-"Even when we do good, we need time to rest". Recently, I found myself busy attending church activities, and partying wasn't absent in them. My BG was heightened, I need rest. Thank you!

      Acaetnna When you get up to do so much and you realize you did so little.Either because of others or the weather or some unexpected interruption.You have to understand one day is only a very little part of the whole picture.Time to gather your thoughts and start again.Thanx so much.
