When We Stop And Think

Updated on August 29, 2012

A Self Check Up

Reflecting for a moment how far we have come

Taking in a deep breath of air just for the sake of oxygen to fill our lungs

Letting it out like a wonderful breeze that rattles the leaves

Happy to see where we stand now

Not wanting more or less

Rejoicing in the progress that has carried us forth

If I was a Boy Scout I would probably say North

Never reaching all my goals or finding my ultimate dream

I sit quietly and listen to my heart beat strong

I was never prouder than this very moment

It is time to move on

To hear the angels sing

To feel the energy pass through me and resonate

Understanding now before it is to late

Life is always in motion

It is up to us to see it or ignore it

One has to do what they feel they must do

Feeling a kindness in our heart

That spreads so easily like jelly on toast

No need to talk or tell anyone

This is where life begins again

      Dim Flaxenwick Me to that's when I turn into a cat.My little secret don't tell anyone.I don't want people to think I am a little off my rocker.I just want to enjoy what I have with everyone I love as long as I can.I will try to find any way that fits and then keep at it until I have to go to work.Wishing you the best of health and the time to enjoy it all .

      kj force every problem has a solution.You just have to keep trying until you find it.I can help you with this one it is easy as pie.Your wheels are just going round and round because you hit mud from the heavy rain.Floridians don't drive well in bad weather.But those in Maine know enough to ease off the gas,put your foot on the break go in reverse slow then go forward repeat as needed and soon you will be driving down the highway with your hair blowing in the wind.Have a great night.
