Writer's Love To Write

Author:

Sharing Thoughts Of Inspiration And Admiration

Change has always been my biggest mystery

How can we possibly adapt and survive?

It is hard to be older and see the young with all their energy

If they could see what I see

Chrish Canosa in her writing

If This Was Your Last Day

I would have to say

I am so pleased and honored to read your work

It covers the black shadows of my life

What I dream of doing

What I never accomplished

The in's and out's of my everyday existence

My high's and low's

My dreams of the future

Not of just what I can do

What the world is

In such a deeper form

Being too serious and not enjoying the sweetest passions

Always searching for new ways

To touch people where they least expect it

Finding love where friendship started

I have heard

Youth is wasted on the young

Meaning they have energy and vitality

But they throw away opportunity after opportunity

On useless pursuits

I disagree

They are the future

They are incredible and will make any changes necessary

To live a better life

They have to do it

In their style and at their time

So different than mine

To turn to nature and see its special hold

Only then the really smart people will realize

What is important and what is not

Other people like me

Will watch as history is made

Rules are challenged and broken

They will deliver

More than ever

Happiness is proof

Somehow they found a way

To make it a better day

Gypsy Rose Lee Now that sounds amazing. I love where our thoughts come from. Then we can make them go in all different directions. Seeing results and sometimes many dreams come true. If that isn't fun what is? Have a really special weekend. Walking on the beach and maybe taking a swim. Enjoy the lovely water. Too cold here. It's in the 50's.

BRENDA ARLEDGE Some days are made for writing. Then there are days we do everything but write. It doesn't stop our minds from thinking. Next time I can keep this thought and dive into it like a sea turtle. Soaking up the sun and the water at the same time. Thank you for everything. Pleasant dreams.

BRENDA ARLEDGE There are so many lovely thoughts that come to mind. They pull me in one direction then to nine. Each one requiring much time. I try to spread my energy to wherever it is needed. Finding new ways to reach more and having a good time at the same time. What other programs do you remember watching? I spend more time on the computer than on the t.v. If I start watching t.v. I will put off writing. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Enjoy.your day.

Devika Primic I can feel my body slowing down. We can do all the things we want but they may never get done. I try to step on it and get more things done in less time. I love that you have been writing since 2008. I love that writing can be done on a laptop and online for so many people to see. Thank you so much for dropping bye. Have a lovely night.

I have often asked myself - What would you do if you did not love writing? Since I cannot answer this question I continue writing, enjoying what I do, and constantly have a hundred different new thoughts in mind, I hope you have a great weekend ahead.

We all have those moments, enjoy them too. They make us better writers.

Take care

Thanks Dream on,

I loved those shows too & still watch them on occasion.

I'll try to have a little fun the next few days.

It doesn't matter how old you are and what you can do and can't do. Following a dream gives you that positive lifestyle and makes you see that you can do it. I began writing online in 2008 and learned from every mistake I made and continued to write becuase writing is my passion. I followed every step of the way to improve on my skills and found online jobs and ditched it. Everything i did was to get better and never thought of my age in doing that.

BRENDA ARLEDGE Sometimes it is even nice to get a good old kick in the butt. O.k. we can make history with the youngins. I watch how fast young people adapt to change. I grew up happy watching sitcoms of The Waltons and Little House On The Prarie. That was entertainment. Now the children watch a thousand different videos on their phones and still aren't happy. I don't get it. I don't know if I ever will. I have to take a step back and take a walk. Nature walks remind me how great life is. Just the way God designed it. Long before man got his hands on it. (lol) Secretly, I do love the phone too. It does so much. I don't want to put it down. Life is funny that way. Thank you for being a good friend. Don't work too hard at work tomorrow. This way you will have some energy to write.

Snap out of it!!

Your dreams are important & you can accomplish them no matter what your age is.

What am i? No spring chicken that's for sure ...but I'm not tossing in the towel. Not yet!

Neither are you!!

Sure those young people have gumption and they make mistakes...we all did. They will get there.

So will we.

But we got it better...we are wiser.

We know what is a waste of our time. We know what's important.

So they'll be none of this watching while history is made.

Have a great day.

John Hansen I think I forgot most of the good things and remember too much of the bad. If I had a chance to go back in time I wouldn't know where to begin. I think I might have to wipe the slate clean and start fresh. I am so blessed to read so many writings that move me in so many ways. There are many times I take the long way when there is an easier way. I think I somehow am a glutton for punishment. At least that is what my father told me years ago. He might have been right. I keep thinking I will learn more and instead I think I forget more. (lol) Here is to another beautiful day. Raining all day yesterday. I just know the sun will shine tomorrow. Thank you for recieving my poems with an open mind and a huge heart. Pleasant dreams my smiling friend.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on May 05, 2021:

Dream On, I wish I knew what I do now but could go back 20 or 30 years. I would have started taking my writing more seriously back then. It is great that we can all inspire and uplift each other with our writing. Have a great day.
