Off To A Running Start

Updated on October 3, 2017

What We Can Do

Is enjoy every day in some small way

Calmly and quietly

Listen to the music in our heart

We make time for everyone else

Leaving ourselves behind

Lets do it up right

A love so tender

Mind blowing

Changing slowly

Taking care of our own needs

It feels guilty at first

Then we realize it feels so good

It's time to bring our life to the center

So many times we have questioned our intensions

What's the purpose

Only to bring ourselves down

Final steps like it was an operation

Keep thinking our best thoughts

It's important that we are balanced

Full of love

Full of life

The love on the outside

The love on the inside

Finding ways to discover are hidden potential

We move to a more beautiful life

      DREAM ON 11 days ago

      Gypsy Rose Lee With changes happening all around us it is easy to get swept away. Take time to know yourself. Sit quietly and let a range of emotions flow. You can get up and do a little exercise and think next of how wonderful your life is. Reinforcing all the good you have and putting your life in perspective. Yes things are changing. Maybe not the way you expected or hoped. You have to find a way to embrace the different changes because fighting them will only frustrate you and get you tired. It is like paddling upstream in a river. If you go with the current you can go fast and many places. If you go against the current you get no where. exhausted and weak. Almost the same place you started and even back farther. Sometimes it is easy to see things in other peoples lives but not our own. Nobody can find the peace and love you deserve and can have except you. Until you are ready and willing then time has to pass. I believe we are put on this earth to teach others how to live life. While teaching people we learn to experience our life in full or part depending on our own wishes and wants. I appreciate you comments on my hubs. I enjoy more the experiences we both encounter from our writings and from what we share. I am far from an expert on anything. All I do know is what works for me and what I am constantly struggling with. That is how to live my life to the fullest. I look around and many of my coworkers don't care about writing or about our feelings. They just want to go to work and complain and come home and watch t.v. or play video games. That is not for me. They are a lot younger and have different values and beliefs. I spend a good part of my day in work and when I come home my wife and I try to accomplish different goals. Some long and some short term goals. My wife is more concerned about getting daily things done. What we are having for meals, cleaning around the house and the news. I am more interested in dreams and taking our imagination to new heights. An odd mix. We make it work but with so many challenges along the way. Thank you for reading and expressing your feelings and thoughts. The weather is turning colder here and more rain on the way. Have a good morning and may the weekend bring you tiny bits of happiness that can develop into a world of passion.

      The autumn is giving me the possibility for a running start to change things in my life. The leaves still quite green, slowly turning and the ones that have changed get blown off the trees and it looks kind of sad only a few leaves at a time. I am looking forward to all the colors.

      Shyron E. Shenko My knees and legs don't want to cooperate. So now I take walks instead of go running. It isn't the same. I can't afford to get hurt and have surgery. How have you been since your hip replacement ? Do what the doctor says. We need you healthy for a long, long time. I was lucky I never had any knee injuries. My free time is out in my yard. Fixing plants or cutting the grass. Nature and I talking to each other like old friends who haven't seen each other for years. I love the smell of the fresh air. I feel so alive. Then of course when I write. I sometimes forget to eat or sleep. Trying to put my words on paper. How it turns out I am not to sure. I have only me to blame. I am always happy to say something. I look at my thoughts as untamed. So they can be as wild and free. They speak from the inner me. One that I don't even know. So if I don't know myself how can anyone else expect to know me. Through time I try to reveal another side. One more layer. Sometimes two at a time. Now that was a beautiful surprise. Then to read your writings and listen to your words. I am happy and want to read other hubbers like you. I find the friends we have here on HubPages are priceless. They really care. Unlike some other people we meet in our day to day life. Some people are in it for what they can get out of it. Not what they can give and receiving comes natural. Thank you for reading and sharing. May your day get better and better. I had to think for a minute even better than that. What I am trying to say is have a great day!

      Hello Dream-on, I know what you are saying, I have to take care of my hubby and my dog, my me time is usually on Friday 1:00 pm when I play Texas holdem with a group of friends.

      I use to skate and run also, not suppose to with my hip replacement.

      Blessings always my friend.

      Shyron E Shenko I use to run and the best way to get running is to start running slowly after you have stretched. You can talk about running but until you actually do it. Then you feel how your body reacts. One on one. I spend a great deal of my time visiting friends and family in local nursing homes. I am so happy when I go. When I don't go I feel guilty. They are there and I can go anywhere. Too often I forget about me. What I want to do and the days turn into months. My own personal and home life suffer. I keep saying I wouldn't change it for the world. Sometimes I have to reel it back and have me days too. I took a week rest and went to do some fall clean up around the house. I do feel guilty. I have to find the right mix. Enjoying both my time and time with them. Both things are very important in my life. It is not a question of choosing one over the other. I have to squeeze in both which is very hard to do. They are like two different worlds constantly colliding. When I can I turn to my writing to save me. Searching in my mind for better answers. Thank you for reading and sharing.
