A New Month A New Opportunity

Updated on September 1, 2020

What Can We Do Different?

We see the weather change

We have no choice but to adjust

The weather is turning cooler

So we adapt

How come parts of the rest of our life are not as easy?

As we encounter a problem

The solution is right around the corner

Yet we seem to keep doing the same old routine

Is it because we look for the easiest way?

We don't really want to change?

It is not important and we let it slide?

We can say we are busy

Would that be an excuse or a real reason?

What if we think our life like a game show?

We have round after round of play

Filled with nonstop action

Every move we make decides how far we go

Carefully, putting all our skills to the test

We have the confidence and skill

Let us see if today will be any better

Tomorrow we get to tell

      Dora Weithers It is funny how life can treat us nice and then in the next moment tear our heart out. I have found some sad times that I never want to repeat but in my head they continue on like a clock. Never stopping and every day no matter if you like it or not they will hit every time of the day. So with that, I find it in all my power to make the best of the good times. Then I take the times I am not so happy about and try to see the lessons they have taught me. It might only be never to do that again. It could also be deeper that I don't see it till days or years later. Then other times I never see it until someone points it out for me. Thank you for being a good friend. You see the positive I try to bring even if my writings are a piece of coal that has little use to everyone else since everyone changed over to oil. I think back to my childhood and even though it was many years ago. In so many ways leads us down a path. If we take the good from what we learned we can have a bright future. If we only focus on the bad then we might have a rough time moving on. Thanks for being you. Have a beautiful Monday.

      Gypsy Rose Lee I can definitely see how things can be rough. When I have computer trouble it takes me a while to get back on track. Hopefully, September will be the month that shines. Thank you so much for reading and caring. I know hard work pays off and we have to wait and see the results. Have a great night.

      After knocking out the Internet and Mother Nature giving me an extended vacation I already know what I have to do in September. Get my PC organized, get back to hard work, seek writing jobs high and low, and then and only then if it is all on track at the end of this month I can breathe a sigh of relief that all has not been lost.
