Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.


If At First You Don’t Suceed…Yeah You Know

Almost in the palm of my hand

It slips through my fingers like grains of sand

Yet I give it the old college try without a degree 

Try, try, try, until you suceed

Positive thoughts and affirmations I speak

Reading the scriptures for a spiritual tweak

Hop on one leg and stand on one hand

Pilates, yoga and doing the best that I can

Brain power churning 

Will power burning 

The little train that could

Persevering as I should

Turning that frown upside down

Out smiling most mimes and clowns

“Oh, hello there!” Now go on and have a good day

Neither let man, beast or silly things stand in your way

Monday Motivation: Turn Your Back On Negative Thoughts

The negative thoughts come… 

“I can’t do that”

“There is no way”

“I’m not good enough”

So on and so on and so on. You know what? There is no law that says we have to listen to them.  Turn your back and ignore them! You have the right to choose and it is not just about thinking positive. It is about accepting that you have the power to achieve. What looks hard will always look hard until you crack the wall of illusion and step through.

You do not have to be bothered with a negative soundtrack when you can choose what you want to listen to. Inner strength, intuition, will power, God’s direction, there are more powerfully inspiring voices to give ear to. All that negativity is food for crows. You can do this!

Pieces of Life

And so goes the daily grind

Trying to put life in this time

Part – time or the full swing

Chipping away to make a living

With the giving of ourselves to the day

The way might not always be easy

But we make it anyway

And through it all

Through this daily grind

We come across pieces of life

That give a lift

A swift little message

To say all is okay

And we take those pieces

And create a better day

Spreading some feel good wherever we can

The residue sticking to us for a while

As we continue to put some life into this time

Delightful Happenings

Have a good day

Seize every second

And create some joy

For you or for someone else

Grasp the sweet fruit of happiness

Ripe and ready to be plucked

Take this day and make it special

A collection of moments to remember

There is a treasure around every corner

Delightful happenings to discover

Take the time and do something for you, today

Set aside the troubled mind

Seize the seconds

And enjoy life
