Seeking Perfection

When you write
always chase perfection
Finding the right words
to convey
your thoughts, your emotions,
your dreams, your voice
is everything
It might not be
the most eloquent or the most intellectual
but as long as
your choice of words
are guided by your heart
then in your eyes
it is simply…perfect

A Day That Changes Everything

Sometimes,
a day comes that changes everything
It could be an opportunity,
or it could be an obstacle
It could be for good
or it could be bad
Regardless of what it is,
the secret
to making it through is
you must embrace it
with eyes wide open
and accept it for what it is
No matter what the outcome,
as long as you have a positive attitude
while continuing to go forward
the end result will be beneficial to you

Take Your Chance

If you don’t take your chances,
your confidence will go
and
when you stop worrying about making mistakes,
you won’t make as many
Everything
will eventually come together
as long as you use
all of your main attributes
and
have complete faith in yourself

Honor The Process

Writing is a process
A process of deliberate practice
A practice of effort over time
and in time, results in creativity
Writing is focused on progression
rather than perfection
Writing is the practice of
finding joy in words and sharing them
Perfection is the end result
The result determines
if joy is achieved
Regardless of results,
there is no stopping point
There may be milestones to celebrate
but,
writing is a lifetime journey
Writing is ultimately a choice
If you choose this path…
honor the process

Search Deep Within

Sometimes,
no matter how hard we work
or how hard we try
we can’t find the success
needed to reach our dreams
When all avenues to our life’s goals
are exhausted
the only solution to righting the ship
and getting back on course
is to rely on our
inner strength
It gives us the wherewithal
to endure the eternity of darkness
until that spark of light appears
So when the chips are down
and you’re at your limits,
search deep within
and rely on your
inner strength
to get you through
the journey ahead

Change Your Perspective

Life can be fresh and exciting
when you change your perspective
It makes the boring and tedious
much more fun
If every day feels like the same,
then make little adjustments
and do something out of the ordinary
and you’ll see the world around you
in a new light
This will open up
better opportunities, brighter days
and happier times
So if you feel that
your life is in a rut,
change your perspective
