Take Care Of Yourself

When life gets in the way,
a lot of the things we like to do,
the dreams we are striving for,
seem to move away from us
No matter what we do,
no matter how hard we try,
we can’t get back on course
The way to fix that
is to shift the focus
back onto ourselves
and concentrate
on taking care of ourselves
in mind, body and spirit
Once we’re centered
all that we dreamed possible
can now come to fruition

Remember Your Feelings

The most memorable things we’ve read,
stay with us
because
we compile our experiences
based on how we felt in the moment
We use that excitement, that longing or that love
to make us know
how important it was
If you want to remember
the most beautiful or most precious thing you read,
don’t try to recall the exact words
Try to recall that feeling you had
then the true essence of the words
will surface

From Dream To Reality

It’s not bad to dream
but sometimes reality
hits us upside the head
and makes us question ourselves
In that instance,
always follow what the heart desires,
summon all your will and strength
and champion that inner voice
It will help shine
a clear path to your goal
Because dreams can become…
a reality

Be Patient

Writing is a craft
that takes time to learn
and
time to find your inner voice
It takes patience
to grow
You might get weary at times
but stay the course
and
you’ll become strong enough
to stay on path
and
move forward to
reach your dream

Never Stop Learning

Writing
is an evolving art form,
so never stop learning
The moment you stop
and
think you know all there is to know,
then you should quit
Writing is a craft
that requires constant learning
You learn about yourself,
you learn from other writers
and you learn from life
So stay motivated
and
continue your education

Don’t Be Afraid To Fail

If you fail,
don’t be afraid to start again
If you never do what you love
because it’s scary
or you’re too afraid to even try,
then your life is unfulfilled
Can you ever be truly happy?
Won’t you have regrets?
So what if you fail,
just get back on your feet
and start again
and maybe, just maybe
you’ll be lucky
the next time around

The Writer’s Blueprint

There are people
that want to be writers
but few are willing to do what it takes

to master the craft
If you’re willing,
what’s the blueprint?
You must be willing
to make an attempt,
to fail,
to learn
You’ll fall at some point,
pause to take on other priorities
or get distracted

If that happens,
just get back on track and try again
Continue with your attempts
until you get it
Continue until you do not
possess self-doubt
Keep getting back up
and
strive to try again
