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

Always Believe

Always believe that you can do anything. It’s real easy to look at the negative things with all the struggles and trials around you, but if you put your faith in God, trust in yourself, stay determined and work on things to make sense…you can continue to believe that you can overcome anything.

Always Go Through

As you face obstacles in your life, go through them. Never go around them just because you are afraid. You’re cheating yourself. Going through the obstacles you encounter will help you to garner all the richness that your character has to offer.

Never Lose Hope

When things in your life
go absolutely wrong,

never lose hope
When despair sets in
and you see no way out,
never lose hope
When the decisions you make
take you further from your goal,
never lose hope
When you try your best
but it isn’t enough,
never lose hope
Your faith in yourself
is unbreakable
You are stronger
than what you appear to be
Your will to overcome challenges
is resilient
You can make it through
all your dark times
if you keep that spark alive
and believe that
all good things will
come to fruition
if you…
never lose hope







Almost, But Not Quite There Yet

1A

When life throws you a curve, what do you do?  We are faced with making many decisions on a daily basis, some minor, others life-changing ones.  How do you decide which course of action to take?  Do you rush into it with emotions running high?  Do you take a step back and think things through?

Lately, I’ve been pondering the decisions that I’ve made within the past several months.  Were they good ones…well it’s hard to say.  From my perspective, it might’ve been the wrong ones.  I think the past several decisions were based purely on emotions and in hindsight I should’ve taken a breather before jumping headlong into a predicament that exacerbated what was already a stressful situation.

As always, I live and learn.  My comfort is in the fact that I have the power to do something about it and that it’s not something that’ll last forever.  No matter how bad the situation I’m in, I’ll find a way to resolve it.  I just need to look for the little signs that God has placed for me to find.  Once I can identify them and learn from it then it’ll be when I can move on.  Life is way too short to just give up and be content with where you are.

Granted I’ve made mistakes that led me to where I am today, but I have faith that this is the path that God designed for me.  I am eternally hopeful that this will ultimately lead me to where I was truly meant to be.  As long as I keep the faith, stay positive and persevere, I’ll be just fine.
