You Know What You Want Now You Have To Get It

Updated on August 14, 2019

You Can Talk About It But It Is Not Enough

The days go by quickly

You won't see them pass

Every time you think

The old dreams make their way back

Nothing happens overnight

Hard work is part of the solution

Faith and believing in yourself

Are the glue that sticks it together

You can easily get distracted

From so many other ideas

Writing clears your mind and focuses your thoughts

Taking time

Making the effort

Building on top of a foundation of good

There is not just one way

You have to be flexible

Always adjusting to each situation

Problems will arise

Answers are there

Hidden in a maze

That you have to travel

Boredom and laziness are your enemies

Be aware

The fight can be internal as well as external

Perseverance and a great positive attitude will keep the momentum flowing

More to come

For now I have to keep moving

In the direction I want to go

Small steps are needed

The path I am on

Is so familiar

I gathered up all my emotions

To sort through them one at a time

Letting go of worries

That hold me back

I reach out my hands

Up high in the open sky

To welcome all there is

Feel the love

      Gypsy Rose Lee Keep doing all that you are doing. You are accomplishing so much. I have my good days and I have bad days. I love when things go right but when things go wrong it sends me for a loop. I keep working on that. Thank you so much for reading and sharing your thoughts and ideas. What a wonderful way to keep in touch. Each time we help ourselves we can help other people share in our journey. Then we all can be just a little better off. Have a great day.

      I always remain focused on my goals and keep reminding myself of what it is I really want to accomplish and then go for it in little steps like weeks at a time.

      John Hansen At an early age I have made my share of mistakes. I remember getting into trouble and wondering why? When other kids seem to do a lot worse and didn't get punished. I had to pay the piper. My conclusion was that I managed to be at the wrong time and the wrong place. I tried to shake it off. Thinking years into the future that one day I can live my life my way. Thank you for reading and sharing. It is so nice to take even the worst of times and bring out the best. Then move forward with positive energy that will override any obstacles. Have a relaxing night.

      Yes, Michael, we need to stay focused if we ever want to achieve our goals. It is so true that boredom and laziness are our enemies, and sometimes very difficult to overcome. Breath deep and feel the love.
