To Slip Into Life

Updated on March 2, 2011

We Have To Take Action

When you put your slippers on

You took the first step

You get your foot in position

If your too lazy to lift the slipper up

You kick it around with your foot until it is in line with it

Then in it goes

Ahhh that feeling of comfort

Simple as it may seem

What pleasure it brings

Preventing those warm toes hitting that cold floor

A chill that could change your day in a small way

Instead we got off to a good start

We have the warmth and pleasure our body seeks

On with our day

This is our first step in the right direction

Searching for any signs of life will do

As my stomach rumbles to a roar

Like I haven't eaten in weeks

I get food to relenquish the fire that burns deep

I am now motivated to my next project at hand

I pick up the phone to call a friend to change plans again

Every time we make plans to meet something out of the ordinary pops up

So our plans are put on hold once again

Each time wanting more to meet and do the things we love

As time ticks in a new direction

I not only open my eyes but see the sun is shining but with an incredible brightness

To cast all my doubts and preconcieved notions out the window and start fresh again

To be happy with what I have and set my dreams on fire

I can not describe the feelings I feel at this time

Only that I am willing to sacrifice my time now for a better life in the future

Other people go and enjoy the pleasures that give them them instant gratification

Like going out to eat or clothes shopping

They watch t.v. or go out to the movies constantly

Having a fun day and looking forward to traveling on vacation

Like eating sweets that fulfill our current desires

I am searching for a dream that I can not easily make happen

Unless I put hours and hours of endless work

Practicing to make my dreams a reality in crystal clear focus

Trying to make things work right

Failures constantly surrounding me like the darkness of the night

Each day I try with new hopes and new passions

That I will one day reach my end result with all the enthusiasm that I currently can not share or participate

Since obstacles still lie in my way

I wait for the day that I will celebrate

By letting the world see my accomplishments and share in all the happiness it brings

To make life better than when I first began

So many years ago with just a pencil and paper in my hand

      DREAM ON, pls please PLEASE DO NOT under any circumstances 'tone down your desires..' [as you state in the comment above]. This is your life energy. This is you. And it is 'this' which enables you to SLIP INTO LIFE with passion, purpose and power. I like that you think 'too much' and I like that you ask 'too many questions'.. because I do too , lol. The World needs us, we need us, you need U, and I need me.. et al.

      I really enjoyed reading this. I felt inspired.. optimistic.. could relate.. and it was real.

      Lovin' your writing.. Stay Blessed DREAM ON.

      Voted up as beautiful, awesome & useful :)

      Eiddwen You have lightened my heart.You have covered by tears with dreams for a better tomorrow.You are wonderful and thoughtful and caring rolled into one.I too continue to be fascinated by the outstanding love of other hubbers who constantly help each other out.Only to give and keep giving.There have been times I am at a loss.I sometimes disappear out of sight.I have been known to think too too much.I have also been known to ask too too many questions.I am working on my faults and I have learned to tone down my desires.Other people don't always see life as I see it.They want to be unhappy and truely don't live the life I lead.For them I feel sorry and great sadness.But as I read your hubs and others so much like you.I admit another one of my faults.I am only one person and only can share what I have learned with others who are like me.I will not get mixed up with others who will bring me down.I have found my camping ground here on the HubPages.That I can say what I want to say.I can be who I am and not really care about others who only want to harm and hurt.I have grown as a person and as a writer.I have learned to think outside of the box.Actually I have made my box round so I can roll.I will keep rolling along until my day comes to an end.The all I can say is I was happy and really happy with all my friends. Thank you for all your comments and I am happy and proud to be your friend.

      Hi DREAM ON,

      I have been amazed at how much difference being a member of this loving community here on HP.

      To actually publish my hubs has set me free and I have grown as a writer and person.

      We share, give, receive and empathise with each other.

      You are such a talenteted writer and your warm personality comes shining through in your work.

      If we need each other we are only a few clicks away (taking into account the difference in time zone of course.)

      Take care my friend

      Eiddwen I see it different.I am the lucky one.I have thoughts that keep dancing in my head trying to make their way out.I find writing one way to set them finally free.But they just disappear and go no where.Unless I have such wonderful people who take the time to read and share.I know it has helped me understand this sometimes crazy life we live.I am no expert and leave all the many professionals to do there job well.But when my heart aches for answers I search on for the knowledge and with passion I tell my story.In time life explains itself and so many other people help to make the answers clearer.I feel better and hope we both can help each other in many areas of our lives and soon live and enjoy the best life we have in the short time we have been given.I try not to waste any time since life is such a precious gift.Thank you for your many comments and wonderful words that guide me on to a new and better direction.

      Ahhh how beautiful those words are, of an everyday life, but yet the mysteries that it holds. How we can change those things if we dare, and the question remains, do we?

      Blessings and hugs,
