The Struggle Leads To A Greater Challenge

Updated on December 13, 2013

Where Did We Leave Off

In between the spilled water on the floor and the frozen apple left in the car

Life creates a series of actions and reactions that never stop

No time like the present

To make things right or foul them up again

Each time starts out the same but ends up quite different

We can act in many ways

Blown away and more mad than before

Because you lost that gift certificate for $15.00

You remind me I never liked it from the start

It wasn't meant to be

I just had it and I don't know where it went

Let it go

The homemade cookies you made didn't come out like you wanted

You stay aggravated and keep on complaining

Let it go

I love your cookies

Isn't that enough

The day is still early and you are on a roll

You keep reminding me

Nothing seems to work the way I want

When someone else does it

It comes out fine

Let it go

That's not true

You expect too much and not everything can work out

You have to wait it out

Improvise and make adjustments when necessary

When you do things your way

There has to be a give and take

Look around you and see the good

It will be around a long time after the bad

There is no order that takes place

You will make mistakes and errors

Then again you will make great strides

Keep going hold on to your head because it can be a rough ride

Later you will see

It was well worth it and it made it yourself

You have every right to be happy

For all the work you did

You started small and you worked your way up

Each step was progress under foot

Let it go

Each day is more than a gift

It is a lift

On a special trip going higher and higher

Don't stop because you didn't get the results you want

Move along and go farther

Leave the pressure and the control

For a world we all want to know

I am going to bed

Waiting for a better tomorrow

      There are even times when I wake up in the morning, look about me, remember something and then feel like I want to just stay in bed and hope tomorrow will be a better day.

      DDE If we continue to help each other through our troubles we will find great rewards when all is said and done. The personal satisfaction of doing something that I couldn't do before is all the happiness I need. To other people they want more. Greater results that take time to see and maybe days or months later the results will show themselves. You will be happier then. Be patient things take time. Thank you so much for reading and sharing.
