Keep Moving It Feels Right

There Are Many Things We Can Do

We have to keep popping in suggestions

There are many life changes

Each time we can start fresh

Taking all the good from the years past

Even the toughest times have pushed us beyond our limits

I often snack on apples, grapes and plums

The fruits taste so good and give me a natural high

It is important to have a positive attitude

Always keep looking for new thoughts and ideas

This way you don't get trapped in an old habits

That might of served you at one time

But no longer helps you in any way

Be careful

Old memories can help move us in the direction we want

They can also hold us back

So it is a fine line we can't always see

I find when I go up and beyond

The little more I do

Blends the line and the best will pop

Like a balloon

Sudden and unexpected

When I am doing my daily chores

I let my mind wander

Thinking of ideas

I want to accomplish next

A run through an imaginary things to do list

After awhile it becomes second nature

Later I will put it on paper

Then circle the things I don't get to do

Draw a line through the things I finish

I date the lists and stack them together

This way things not done can be carried forward

I get a cool reminder of everything I have accomplished

It becomes a great motivator

Little tricks that keep me happy

Even days that I don't finish a lot

I get to reflect and remember

Oh ya I forgot about that kitchen chair

That the rungs were loose

The fan that we pulled apart to dust inside

Then we had the toughest time putting back together

The vacuum that broke

Then we bought another one

The old one we were able to fix

The new one never worked right

So we went back to using the old one

We can't possibly remember

All things that we do

That make us feel so much better

Some days we just hang out

Then other days we are full steam ahead

Like a ferry boat moving across the river

We may never be as fast as a speed boat

In time we get where we want to be

Enjoying the scenery


As our mood changes and so do our attitudes

I often tune into nature

Gypsy Rose Lee I love that you will venture out into enjoying the beauty of nature waiting all around you. It is not just for you but for everyone to share. Your experiences can be so much greater. They can be a wonderful insight into the world of writing and publishing. You keep writing so many incredible hubs. They will only get better as you enjoy the love of nature and people that make up your world. Writing can be done in the privacy of our home. We can be locked away for years and see only our views on life. When we interact with other people daily we see how our views our not the only ones that count. We learn and grow. It is not always easy because many things that I see are different than my way of life. It doesn't make their way wrong just not my choice. I feel confident that I am living my life the way I should. Helping people as people constantly help me. I know years ago I never wanted to live life alone. My wife shares many of my interests and views. Then again we also have our differences. Which only hopefully inspires both of us to be better people and in the end have a better understanding of life. Thank you so much for all your support and comments. Please, tell me all about your walk and everything you enjoyed and experienced. Have a beautiful day. We had rain for the past two days. A cloudy day here. The day is still young. Have a sensational morning.

Tomorrow I am bravely marching forth to finally see the river I live next door to the Halifax River and the ducks that I have been wanting to see but somehow never made it to the riverside,
