Let Us Try A Quick Review
It is so easy to forget
All the good that we do
From morning to night
It seemed so long ago
It is always a challenge to highlight the best moments in time
We have to learn there are many tough times along the way
That can make us confused and frustrated
That knock us of our feet
Test our thoughts and beliefs
Make us twist and squirm
When we like what we do
Then we try everything in our power
To do it again and again
Savoring each pleasure as it comes
The combination of work and home life
A tug of war
Sometimes we win after a long struggle
Then there are those times we have lost
We have to keep track of our emotions
Experiencing so many degrees of excellence
Capturing our thoughts
Freezing the sweetness
Like a freeze pop
Ready to pull out at a later time
So we can reinforce our positive traits
Not to forget
The places where we are weak
Using our energy and effort in these areas
That we suffer
Will make us better
The key is to build us up
When everyone else is tearing us down
Until we will finally come around
It is so hard to go slow
When everyone we know
Is speeding bye
Remember today is only one day
Of the whole year
I like to write a few key things I did
Date it so I can look back in the near future
Giving myself a track record
So I can move forward
Enjoy my accomplishments
Use my mistakes as a foot stool to lift me higher

Gypsy Rose Lee By enjoying all the good moments the bad times will appear less and less. When tough times strike we have so much joy and happiness that can carry us through. Pulling us together instead of ripping us apart. Thank you so much for your lovely comments. May today bring another branch of happiness that before you couldn't see.

Brenda Arledge There are so many emotions we experience each and every day. If we use good emotions to drive us in the right direction and slowly change the bad feelings to the good we can accomplish and enjoy so much more. Thank you for reading and connecting on so many thoughts. Hope tomorrow is filled with beautiful smiles.

Lorna Lamon Little things we do every day can make our life better. When it happens we are in the middle of it all and don't necessarily see all the good and bad. Sometimes it takes days or even years to develop. If we keep a positive attitude and always look on the bright side we have so much fun on our journey. Thank you so much for reading and caring. I am glad you enjoyed my poem. Have a really nice day.

Such a great idea to keep track of what we do. It reminds us of both the good and the bad, keeping us on track for where we want to be.
That knock us off our feet
Test our thought and beliefs...I loved those words, so true as we go about life.

Long time no see! Seems like I'm so busy lately I can barely slow down to sleep. This was a good one to catch just before going to bed. Thanks. :)
