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.
