A Good Way To End Every Day


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.

Lots of great advice in this thought provoking poem.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on July 20, 2019:

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.

Good read.

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. :)
