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

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

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

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

Every Word Counts

If you want to make people smile,
make every word count
If you want to make people laugh,
make every word count
If you want to entertain people,
make every word count
If you want to inspire others,
make every word count
If you want to make a difference in people’s lives,
make every word count
So be creative,
be daring,
set your soul free
Be the kind of writer
you dreamed of
and
make every word count

Our True Human Nature

With renewed eyes,
I venture out into
this changed world that’s
filled with unlimited chaos
and relentless despair
in hopes of finding
some semblance
of humanity
In my heart of hearts,
I know that each one of us
possess the
goodness, compassion,
kindness, generosity,
bravery and love
needed to bring forth
positivity into this world
If we can each
unselfishly share
a piece of that
then the world will be able
to realign itself
and we will be able to
shift focus
onto what the true nature is
in being a human

When Words Don’t Come Easy

When the well runs dry
and words don’t flow freely,
take a step back…
pause…
reflect…
on all your past work,
relish in the creativity
you created from nothing
and take pride
in knowing you did something
that was brought forth from
your heart,
your soul,
your inner voice
What was once there
is never gone
It just needs time to
rest and recharge
When all is said and done,
you’ll be back
to reinvent yourself
with eloquent words
that will convey your passion
to the world.
