How To Bring Back That Get Up And Go


The Truth Only You Know

The old saying you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink

Rings a bell

Over and over

I can give you tips that work for me

None may apply

Then all of a sudden

Something triggers a thought inside of your head

You are off like a race car on the Indianapolis Five Hundred

Speeding down the raceway

Ready to go

Hoping to take the lead

Planning your strategy

Every second counts

Hundreds of thousands of people are watching your every move

You are focused

You are in control

You are the boss

So if you started off slow

No need to worry

You have what it takes

So shake that booty

Let your mind lead the way

To one wonderful great day

Peggy Woods I often say to myself I can do this today and sometimes actually most of the time I can't. It doesn't stop me from trying. There are a few times I surprise myself and do what I wanted to do. These special times help me push through all the difficult times in my life. I hope what I learn each and every day will help other people in some small ways. Thank you so much for all your support and encouragement. I hope you and your family stay safe in this difficult time. Don't forget to find the time to have fun and laugh.

Your piece is encouraging to all of us who sometimes hit a roadblock. The road ahead may be the speedway to success just awaiting our arrival.

Louise Powles Sometimes we need a little push. I know I get lazy and feel like taking a nap. Especially in the Fall. Then when I get up I am very slow-moving and feel like I am not going to do much. I get a hot shower then go outside and get revived. The fresh air makes me want to move and exercise. I rake leaves and try to make the yard look nice. It is easy to say not today maybe tomorrow. Then tomorrow it might rain or get too cold and windy to do anything. So for all those who need a push or even a shove. Have a great day and may you keep moving and get so much done. For me, it is all before work then I come in and get another shower then work at night and that is one full day. If I do a little it is better than doing nothing at all.Thank you so much for reading and sharing.

Ann Carr Every time I see a motorcycle drive-by I will think of you. My thoughts come random and on some days a strange kind of order. Each makes sense to me in some fashion. The great ball of life I keep tossing around and sometimes drop. Thank you for reading and making my day brighter. Hope you are having a fun Sunday.

Chrish Canosa Every day we each have to decide what we want to do and how we plan on doing it. It is good to follow other people's advice once and a while to save time and make things easier. Then other times you just have to do it yourself. We live and learn. Have a great day. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Is the weather warm and sunny in the Philippines? The temperature in Maine is 37 degrees.

That's a lovely poem. Very true words too.

Ann Carr from SW England on November 13, 2020:

Love the energy in this!

I like the Indi500 analogy too because I like anything to do with cars, rallying, racing (and bikes too!). Give me an open road and my head is full of ideas...

Hope you are keeping safe and well.

" it's so good when you decide what to do next " and not what people expect u to mold a scenery that just labeled to their tastes. I know what to do next no need to worry that sound so good!

Have an awesome day :-) and a bunge of love from the Philippines.
