When We Wait To Long

Updated on November 22, 2017

Our Energy Vanishes

We are excited about something we are doing

Then we decide to hold off

Now is not the time

We find ourselves busy with something else

When we return the newness has worn off

The shine is gone

Our energy is low

What is it that changed our mind ?

Thinking from a new perspective

Even our interests are not the same

What once was a glowing light

Now seems dark and dim

It was never meant to be

Unless it was necessary for us to see

Progress has to be constant

If we take our eyes off of the prize

We slowly forget what we wanted

The strength in support diminishes

So what have we learned

If we want to do something

We have to constantly follow through

We need a plan of action

To keep us focused and on our way

Without an organized plan in place

We flounder like a fish in the water

      lunaticdiaries Write, write, write. It is amazing what progress we can make if we keep doing what we love. Never mind what other people think. It is what is important to you that matters. Thank you for reading and sharing. So nice to see you again. Hope all is going well for you and your family. I just keep slugging away. Like a person using a sledge hammer on a big rock pile. It might take awhile but as you keep chipping away you can see the difference right before your eyes.

      DreamOn, very true, the only way to get things done is to stay on course. It’s a proven fact that writing our goals down helps us get things done faster & more efficiently. Best Regards my friend

      Gypsy Rose Lee Follow the changes and see where they lead. They may be exactly what you are looking for. Opportunity is knocking and you slept late and didn't answer the door. There are so many things that we can do to put us on the right track. If only where in tune with our surroundings. Thank you so much for reading and sharing.

      Dora Weithers I have to squeeze through the door is closing fast. The good thing is God will open another door so all is not lost. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Kari Poulsen I do the same thing. So I make sure if I am doing something I keep on until I get where I am done. My wife on the other hand can multi task and do many things at one time. I am hoping her skill will rub off on me I keep checking. Thanks so much and may both your days be filled with smiles of excitement and pleasure.

      Change is constant. Was just reading another author who says, "When God says move, move. God doesn't hold windows open for you forever." You underscored that for me. Thanks.

      So true! I will find myself writing something, and stop to do dishes, and it seems I can't get back to my train of thoughts.
