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


Pause…Breathe…Reset

Sometime when we are
stressed, depressed, worried or have anxiety,
being alone in our thoughts
can be unhealthy
So take a step back, breath,
clear your mind
and make it a point
to seek out family and friends
Spending time with them
will reset your perspective on life
and will help you gain insight
The wonders of
friendly advice, loving support and good laughs
will do your soul wonders
So relax, for it’s not the end of the world
You will get through it and
come out stronger in the end
with a robust confidence
backed by an eternal well of hope

Happy New Year

As 2020 winds down, my resolution for the new year is to continue to have “HOPE” despite everything that life throws at me. Hope is a powerful motivator, a life-affirming feeling and a force to be reckon with if properly sent out into the world. Darkness cannot exist without light, so keep that spark of hope alive…have faith that everything will turn out all right. Ignite the eternal optimist within you!

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
