Go And Make Memories

Memories are important
and it’s up to you
to make them
From the simple
to the grandiose,
it can be ridiculously stupid
or fantastically great
The experience you get from it
will no doubt be
a priceless treasure
in your heart

Ask Yourself The Right Question

If you ever wondered,
is it better to live
second by second,
minute by minute,
hour by hour,
day by day,
month to month
or year to year
then you’re asking yourself
the wrong question
Just living is precious in itself
So spend your time wisely
creating memories
that’ll last a lifetime.

What I’m Thankful For

Despite what a terrible year 2020 has been, I’m thankful that I got a chance to strengthen my relationships with my family and friends…even connect with long lost ones. It helped me to lean on them for support and I learned that regardless of what life throws at you or what obstacles arise, if we face it together…together we will persevere.

Mid-Life Reflections #13

It’s been awhile since I stopped and took time to reflect on the things happening in my life. Since this COVID-19 chaos, everything has been up in the air and all my daily routines have been thrown out of whack. But my optimistic trait has me seeing a positive side to all of this. Having this pandemic happen has given me the opportunity to actually stop my life and take into account all the good things that are around me. I am fortunate to be a lot closer with my family, both in proximity and in relationships. I value life more, regardless of all the obstacles that are in my way. I’m appreciative of being able to stop and take notice of nature and how it continues to progress regardless of what goes on in my life. And most of all, I’m just happy to be here in this moment, knowing that I have had good memories despite all of the negative aspects associated with this virus. This will pass because there cannot be darkness without light. So I continue to have hope and treasure every breath I take.

Go Straight

When there is darkness
and stagnation
in front of you…
go straight
When life causes
extreme hardships…
go straight
When trouble
overwhelms you…
go straight
When your path
becomes hazy and unclear…
go straight
When obstacles become
too difficult to manage…
go straight
The course you take
must never waver
Always have faith
and never falter
Forge onwards
to greater heights
so that
your dreams and goals
may come to fruition
and then and only then
will everything turn
out better
If you just…
go straight

First Step to Hope

Never give up
even in the face of failure,
make it happen

to persevere,
despite all odds
Your life is precious,
and you have so much to contribute
in this world

There is hope!”
So breathe,
take that first step,
and always
move forward

“I Can”

Don’t wish for things to happen,
make it so
Don’t be afraid of the outcome,
have faith
Don’t sell yourself short,
you are worthy
Cast aside all doubt,
challenge yourself
to be great
In doing so,
you open up your world
to infinite possibilities
where dreams become reality
It all starts with you,
your journey begins
when you simply say,
“I can!”
