One Special Day In The Making

Updated on October 23, 2019

Make It Happen

No matter what you plan on doing

Make it count

Find little things that make you happy

Without other peoples help

That can be a tough one

For me, it is writing and dreaming

I can do fun things and show creative ideas

The skies the limit

In work, I have to listen to my boss

I get paid to do the job they want and expect

Many times my work exceeds more than other people

Most co-workers get paid the same

If they do little or more work

So they do just enough to get by

I think that is sad

They have no personal pride and feel no obligation

I was raised differently

My parents instilled the philosophy

You are getting paid to do a job

Do the best job you can

Not once and awhile

Each and every time you come to work

It is frustrating watching other people

With their poor, I don't care attitudes

I stopped watching other people

I refocus my thoughts on my family life

What I plan on doing later

Tomorrow or next week

My list is endless

When work is over

I know I did a job to the best of my ability

I can hold my head high

I have no regrets

If the day comes I don't care

It's time to find another job

I believe those people who do less

Will develop those bad habits

That will carry on

To any job they do

To their personal life and friendships and relationships

Instead of a win-win

it is a lose-lose

Not much else to say

Except make your day an exception to the rule

Over time you might teach someone else

Management might learn something too

That we are more than just an employee number and a paycheck

We are people who try to do our best

Try so hard to make things work

Giving it our best

In return, the company may succeed in the toughest of times

They are good but so are so many other companies

In today's competitive market

Not because they have the best service and quality in the world

Because they have the best people in the world

That knows the meaning of raising the bar to a new standard

Going up and beyond what peoples expectations are

Then waiting for everyone else to catch up

      Gypsy Rose Lee You are doing everything right. I strongly believe that when things don't go as planned there are reasons for that we may not understand but we can appreciate now and later on. If you take time to concentrate on the good and all you have and not focus on what you did not get. When you direct your focus away from the good you tend to get more of what you don't want than what you really do want. Take this time to write about your dreams and make them clearer. Explain in great detail what you have accomplished and what your desires are. This might seem like an easy thing but most people think about what they want but never put it on paper. Give this a try and you might see how your thoughts and your actions are really too different things. It works for me. I will be more than happy to show you examples of what I wanted in the past and present and did not get. Then by writing about my journey I recieved something even greater. A lesson and more knowledge to push me in a direction I really wanted. Frustration and aggrivation can be channeled into something beautiful. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. I keep trying to find ways to enjoy all we have and don't have.

      Family is always important until you wind up like me, myself, and I then you have to hold this family together and sometimes it can be so hard. I am trying to find more writing jobs online and when I apply to places it does not help at all when I get replies like this

      Thank you for your interest in signing up to be a writer. We will not be moving forward with your application. We wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.

      How can I learn from this and how can I know why they did not choose me? I would have preferred that they told me how bad I was and what I did wrong instead of just wishing me luck in the future. I might wind up feeling very despondent and unwanted.

      Anyway, I hope you and yours including Charlotte have a wonderful weekend,

      Ut Kashy It is so nice to see you. I am always surprised when someone new reads a poem that I wrote. Thank you for your time and effort and I appreciate your thoughts and comments. People come and go in and out of our lives. Family like it or not is here to stay. We are bonded not just in friendship but through the blood. I know there are many families that pull apart instead of pulling together. My own family has had its own struggles through the years. The time wasted hurting each other would of been so much better spent helping each other. Life goes on. When we realize how short our life really is maybe it will kick start us in a good direction. Unfortunately, for some, it is too late. If we bond with friends and they also bond with their own families we increase love. Some friends have learned this and become even closer than family. I find that so amazing. That is one of many hidden blessings in life. There is so much potential to so so many good things in every day. If we spend our time on the bad and the negative we can never reach our most beautiful heights. Thank you again. I hope to read your work as well. Sharing is caring.

      Brenda Arledge Each day I feel we have an obligation to ourselves to do the right thing and try our hardest to succeed in life. Our life is a gift and with that gift, we can keep giving. There are so many less fortunate people that deal with the most unbelievable circumstances. To be healthy in itself is so amazing. Then to have the opportunity to live our life the way we want is fantastic. We are given so many choices and we get to decide what we want. I find helping other people not only inspires me to do more but carries me through my rough times also. I can look back when my circumstances were different and think of ways to get back there. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Life can be lonely even though we are surrounded by billions of people. When you try hard and things don't work out like you planned. It is easy to get depressed and lose focus. Unless we keep on the right path and build up our confidence through all the things that matter most. I believe God plays an important part in our lives. Spirituality can come in so many different forms. It can be so beautiful as well as overwhelming. Happy Friday. May your day continue to look bright and filled with all the joys of life.

      This is such a great attitude to have.

      I believe doing your best is always matter how little or much it tends to be.

      Giving your best pleases oneself as well as God.

      Great read.
