Moving On And Up And Out

Updated on July 8, 2020

See How Far We Have Come

This is only the beginning

Our life is full of surprises

If we only could see them as they happen

There are so many good parts that make up our day

The bad times will come and go

If we don't let them take root

They will be nothing more than a bad thought that lingers

People get bored from the same old routine

I don't understand what is wrong with one more pleasant day

You can give me all the days you don't want

It's like they are begging for something to happen bad

I continue doing what I love

Waking up with the birds

They get me in a great mood

Then no matter what it is

Playing with our cat Charlotte

Mowing the grass for the fifth time this year

Watering the plants that haven't flowered

Enjoying the ones that have

Going to work

To earn another days pay

Spending time with my wife

While doing grocery shopping

Burning hot dogs on the grille

I forgot about them

When I was trying to multitask

Shaving so I look nice for my honey

Every day may be a twist of what I did before

Like Twizzlers I can have one

i won't stop you if you want to give more

      DREAM ON

      Lorna Lamon I look out my kitchen slider and I love the view and especially fresh air. I try to take a picture of a hummingbird but it is too fast. I watch the fog or is it morning mist. Will it be a lazy, hazy kind of day. Maybe it will be like a bucket filled with unmatched potential. Only as the hours unfold can we tell? Now the bucket or buckets are white and filled with some water. My wife going back to sleep as I write. She is tired from getting up so early. I keep checking to see new signs of life. Maybe a quick fly-by bird or a squirrel running under a bush. Even the littlest bug will amaze me. I can watch it trying to live it's own life the only one it will ever know. Thank you for all your support and help to sort through different thoughts and emotions. We all experience life from a different perspective. I go much farther and deeper than others. That has been the biggest problem that I try to turn around into an asset. I have always been an emotional person. Through my writings, I tap into my sadness and my pain. I also encourage and dive into all my joys and great passion for life. i always make sure I have so much more happiness than pain. So I can tip the scale to a positive and more productive way. May your day turn out better than you expected and may you end up happier than when you started. Off to write again. Where my mind goes my body will follow.

      Michael-Milec I wake up with my wife at 5:30 and we both are on with our day. We went to bed just before midnight. Today we had plans with our Goddaughter that got canceled. Things happen and we look forward to next time. Each time we spend time together we know how important it is for both of us. No matter what we do or where we go it is fun just being together. She lives in Ohio. Every year she flies up to Maine and we make it a point to do something. It is foggy outside and the chance of showers today. As I read your comment I am eating cereal with blueberries one of my all-time favorites. I make new plans for a wonderful day and your thoughts lift me up as well as encourage me to write more. You have followed me for so many years. Each time sharing your advice and beautiful talent with words. Let me know how do I thank you for effortlessly giving of your time and positive outlook on religion through your life knowledge? I see no hubs to visit. Thank you for all that you do. My day begins a lot like yesterday with the birds chirping away. I hope your day is full of love and passion.

      Well planned day is a successful day. Your list is full of practicalities as well all important, giving us presupposition of accepting changes. In my opinion a work is our rescuer. We live and move in order to create, provide, produce and be fully content. Such is a hope for tomorrow's continuation. We are not planing to quit or let it unfinished...My belief is that when we know how to live, we are always prepare to leave this earthly body when "my assignment is over."

      Good and prosperous day.
