Shake Your Booty

Updated on October 26, 2016

Shake, Shake, Shake

Shake , rattle and roll

It doesn't matter how you say it

As long as you do it

You have a life

A wonderful, incredible life

If you don't find ways of exploring your options and potential

It can and will go forgotten

That is a sad point not too many people want to talk about

We see it in the news

Where someone with so much talent

Never fulfills their dreams

Because they get in trouble or make bad decisions

We can prevent the unthinkable ?

Now the question is how ?

I think if we constantly keep our dreams alive

We are so focused and busy creating

We have little time for the bad mistakes and time to get in over our head

We can avoid the unfortunate circumstances

I think of it this way

My cat Charlotte can be lovable and so much fun

Then again if you put her in front a big potted plant

You take the lovely, green plant and put it next to a delicate vase

Filled with fresh cut flowers

On the other side you have a antique blown glass lamp

You have a recipe for disaster

All the things you have are good

When you mix them together you only get one thing

Kaboom !

I know I won't do that again

So I am a firm believer if we keep busy

Always thinking and enjoying the people and things in our life

That bring the most joy

Not always right now but in the future

We are living the dream

Having fun and succeeding on many levels

Some we don't recognize

Carefully woven into the fabric

Like a homemade blanket

Stitched by hand

Carefully and marticulously

The hours and hours of effort are gone

What is left is a work of art

That can be used to keep warm

For many generations to come

      DREAM ON

      Gypsy Rose Lee I get stuck in neutral and can't get moving sometimes. My emotions get the best of me and I am frozen like a rock. I am just there but not enjoying the moment. It's these times I rewind and have to shake it off and free myself of being paralyzed. It accomplishes nothing. My mood goes way down. I feel like someone socked me in the stomach I am struggling just to breathe. I look for a temporary distraction to slowly take steps forward or back. Then I realize I got too close to the moment. I feel too involved. A few stretches and I am off to do something today. Still not sure what but I will fill you in later. Rock on.

      Always one must be positive and look upon life with open eyes. As always when the world throws me a curve rock and roll pulls me through.

      Jodah Keeping healthy is a tough one. I know some crazy things happen to some beautiful people. Some people are born with asthma and medical conditions or develop more later. I don't know why?Trying to make the best of every situation is always better than suffering alone. I think as we share our most difficult times other people can understand and relate and this is where we can help each other. There are many times I have been down and out and kind words from another hubber have lifted me up. As I get older I find more and more issues I never thought of before. I quess that's one of the surprises in life. Surprise ! Do we laugh, cry or sleep the day away. Everyone is different. Thank you for reading and sharing. May your day be looking bright and amazing.

      You make some very good points Dream On. Yes, it is a shame when people fail to realize their potential due to wrong choices. Sometimes unfortunately it can be because of things out of our control like ill health or injury, but we need to do our best to try and avoid those. An inspiring hub as usual.
