Taking on This Moment

Updated on August 30, 2018

With Optimism And Excitement

I do not know what I will say next

I have to think about it

Enjoying a book I just read

Taking in the knowledge I have learned

Thinking of reasons I liked the book

Forming opinions and creative thoughts

Right or wrong

I moved on

This book could of been read in one day or one week

It took me three weeks

I almost forgot about it completely

Because I start reading multiple books at one time

The book is called Life Through a Device

It was written by William Civitillo

My wife and I went out two weeks ago

While we were outside enjoying food from local food trucks

We met a couple and before long we were sharing old time values

Many different ideas surfaced

How technology has changed the world we live

The way we think, feel and see everyone

This book explains in a few different ways

Things we think about but don't say

The future is here

Ways to enjoy life right now

The author does a good job of connecting with the reader

If the reader spends the time to read what he wrote

Always asking more questions ?

Will the 148 pages change your life ?

It depends on you

Will I go back to all the same habits as before

Maybe just maybe I might take a new approach

Open my eyes instead of squinting at a little, light, white screen

Listen instead of judge

Exercise more instead of sitting on my butt

In the end

Share what I have learned and pass it on

      Michael- Milec What a smart way to keep healthy and enjoying the things you love. In work I am on my feet while other people stand around on slow times I walk back and forth. A few steps here or there definitely add up. I love your tips and keep them coming. When are bodies are healthy are minds work better and more efficient also. A win win. Off to do some yard work. Thank you so much for your comments and suggestions. Have a beautiful Wednesday.

      A book of many ideas. Kindled more ideas of your own. Ideas are only beneficial when implemented. "Exercise more instead of sitting on my butt" - Great idea. Go for it DREAM ON. Would be my choice #1. Something like an idea adding more steps to my daily routine10.000 steps a day. Overstepping my quota as I was watching a tennis matches, it strike me an idea walking inside the house during the games. Three plus four sets a game, has increased my daily count to a new one day record to 32, 696 steps before bedtime. Wonderful accomplishment of burning 4,577 cals, 14.38 miles ...(Glory be to God)

      Dora Weithers I will keep trying to improve and gain more insight and understanding. It only comes with practice and hard work. I seem to love both. In school I never was the best at my book reports but i enjoyed writing them. I would listen to someone else's report and the words just seemed to leap of the page into my arms. I said what did they do that I didn't. I had no answer. I put time and effort in it. I thought of what I wanted to say and said it. Maybe I need to write more of them and hone in on my skills. I am all for that. I learn so much from every book i read. Most of the time I am in a loss of words, We all have to start somewhere. You got me excited and seen what I did as something special. A poem with a twist. i looked at it as another creative poem looking for a home. Thank you so much for all that you do. Have a Sunday Blast.

      Gypsy Rose Lee You have done so much. It will be alright if you give yourself a break and maybe do a little each night. I am sure your friends are excited for you but maybe they have things to do to. You can do something for them in appreciation. Maybe cook them supper or bring them a special dessert. There will be time for everything. Don't rush to conclusions. I am sure so many people would love to be your neighbor. I hope this helps and I will be thinking of other things that might make you more comfortable in your new home. Thank you so much.

      Nicely said and very wise word indeed. Tell me how you would resolve this situation. I have been getting bits and pieces for my apartment. My friends receive the packages downstairs and then bring them up. If there is time help me to put some furnishings together. Finally all of this they got tired of. Now I am told to think of getting a handy man to screw together something that could take just one hour. I do not want to spend extra money. Yesterday email told me more packages came I was not given them and here we are today. I have been told since my friend from way back when has not been feeling well and she needs to have rest I should not go down and bang on their door for any reason. So I am not doing anything just letting things slide by. I just wonder what they are thinking perhaps they now wish I would just move on. I mean yesterday no messages, no info, no packages and when I opened my front door there was this old poster frame placed on my landing. Now what am I to think and perhaps I should not put things together anymore and start considering my options to move on. Of course, I was hoping to spend some time here to recuperate and get used to my new life and of course, not traumatize Sid by moving on so quickly. I have even thought of getting him outside and purchased a harness but have trouble even figuring that out. I am suddenly not a happy camper. Any ideas???
