When We Struggle We Concentrate All Our Efforts

Updated on December 21, 2011

Looking For AnswersThat Are Not There

We reach for new knowledge and a new outcome

Experience we have learned from our past is recycled in such a way

That it brings us new ideas to discuss and hope

When the solution seems doubtful it is good to erase that thought

Find something that is more positive and shows promise

Start small and work big

Too fast too soon will only make you angry and frustrated

Look at the situation from a different light

Take your mind off of it and come back again

Write a little bit and then pick one part of the problem that you can attempt to fix

If you can change that then you can change something else

If not try a food break

A quick snack to refuel and enjoy something sweet

Turn on the music and listen to some music that calms your mind and relaxes your soul

Each step is one of many that is a process that makes us feel better

Now go back and try again

I will return when I find a solution to the problem that I am struggling with

For now I have just dirty hands and I am drinking a glass of water to replace the tears that I have shed

Wondering and dreaming how great it is that I can think and come up with answers

To any problem

Just putting a little more time and dedication to an answer I have not found

      Sorry you're in a struggle so big that it's causing tears. I can only suggest you think positive, believe positive, claim positive, and if you still can't come up with a solution, pray about it and consult a friend, or friends. :)

      Whatever you do ... just don't give up! :)

      Happy Christmas to you ...

      Up, useful, and awesome votes. These are very important to remember. Negative thoughts can ruin many ideas, thoughts, and even people. We must believe in all we can do. I really am glad that I have found you on the site Dream On. The name suits you. Positive you are. Very important trait. Take care.
