You Can't Do It All

Updated on December 1, 2015

No Matter How Hard You Try

Each day you come closer

Starting with fresh ideas and a good attitude

Progress can come on many levels

Personal development can change us for the rest of our life

Small goals can help guide us in the right direction

Long term goals can be the prize for working so hard

If we enjoy what we do

Life becomes a series of waves we get to enjoy

Sometimes you relax and float

Other times you feel the wave take you in one direction or another

Then there are times you swim and paddle against the water

The wave strong and powerful

Comes crashing around you

You keep calm and repeat what works

Taking small strides and moving on

Accomplishing a task few would except

You know you can

Having lots of free time on your hands

You have time to think and dream

The ocean will always have waves

You can look for a friend to travel with you

So each of you can support each other through the tough times

You can remember the past and the people and experiences you have enjoyed

When the good days arrive

You can celebrate together

Once what seemed impossible

Now is not only happening

New dreams and thoughts have come into focus

Life has once again

Delighted us with a beauty that is hard to describe

Nature all around us

Wet on the outside

Inner strength and power growing

From doing what we love

Swimming and thanking God above

      Gypsy Rose Lee It can be such a hard task of keeping up with daily writing and commenting. At the same time living and enjoying the holidays and family. Keep up the great work and don't forget a nice balance is the key to get more done. Everything will be their tommorow to chip away and try your best. Have a great afternoon. Thank you for your special, thoughtful comments.

      Right now all of my goals are concentrated around getting my work on my PC done and to write up some extra pieces so that once the holidays arrive I can just post and I don't fall behind and I can take some days off and enjoy.
