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

Don’t Waste Any Time

It’s such a cliché when we say,
“Life’s too short”
but it’s so, so true
Take the time to stop
and enjoy what life has to offer
Play till your muscles ache,
laugh till you cry,
smile till it hurts
Just do everything and anything
while you can
because
you’ll find yourself being too old
when you’re ready to have fun

Breathe It In

Breathe it in,
everything around you,
the smell of nature,
the warmth of the sun,
the coolness of the rain,
breathe it in
You’re going to worry about work,
money, and material things
but nothing will compare
to how fast time will pass you by so,
breathe it in
The chaos you’ll encounter,
the daily grind you endure,

breathe it in
Even when the monotony
starts to set in,
breathe it in
All the wins and the losses
breathe it in
The time with your family and friends,
breathe it in
Every moment of your journey in life
breathe it in
Enjoy all the big moments,
but truly relish the small ones
because when all is said and done
when you look back on your life

you’ll realize they were all big things,
so…
just breathe it in


Just Keep It Moving

When you are faced
with unforeseen problems,
just keep it moving
When you are tasked
with a ton of things,
just keep it moving
When insurmountable obstacles
appear before you,
just keep it moving
When there is darkness and gloom
surrounding you,
just keep it moving
The only way is through
Going forward will keep you focused,
your resilience will strengthen,
positivity will flow everlasting
and
the light will eventually appear
if you,
just keep it moving

Trust The Process

Trust your writing process,
it requires time and effort
Consistency is mandatory
Discipline and practice makes progression
Regardless of ability, circumstances, excuses or doubt
What you give is what you get
A writer’s inner voice
is designed to express
passion, love, hope, joy, sadness, humor, thought
If a writer works with their
inner voice naturally
The words evoke a heartfelt message
to those in need of it
So trust yourself,
trust your voice
and
trust the process

What Keeps Me Going

When life’s obstacles
put my back against the wall,
what keeps me going…
my family
When challenges arise
and I have nowhere to turn,
what keeps me going…
my friends,
When darkness overcomes me
and there’s no hope in sight,
what keeps me going…
my faith
When the road is long and hard
and I feel like quitting,
what keeps me going…
my confidence
Living every day
is another opportunity
for me
to go for everything
I want and dream of
So never give up
When life brings you down
ask yourself,
“What keeps you going?”
