It’s easier said than done

anna-dziubinska-348It’s easier said than done,

Life is not always easy when you’re constantly on the run.

There are people who are extremely successful living their dreams

Making millions of dollars, it’s hard so it seems

But as you know, it’s easier said than done

As you search for answers, you must understand

Nothing will ever happen if you don’t have a plan

So reach for the sky if that is your wish

But realize in life there is always a twist

It’s easier said than done

Believe and get what you want out of life and know in your heart it’s going to take time

However just be careful where you step it’s a serious climb

It’s easier said than done

So what don’t you worry of the challenges that may come your way

Life is hard and sometimes stormy but there is coming a day

Regardless of the problems that you’ll leave behind

Guess what things will change bare that in mind

It’s easier said than done

You have to know what you want out of life even if it’s hard to explore

That’s the only way you’ll soar

Have the ability to put things into perspective

Search and reach for the stars and go introspective

It’s easier said than done

Ask yourself the most serious question when you contemplate your life’s direction

It takes faith and belief as you get to that intersection

I know and understand it’s easier said than done

Acknowledge God is your strength, you can’t do it alone

Our God in Heaven who sits on His thrown

That’s the answer that you can’t ignore

Otherwise life would be a terrible bore

Because when you focus on this life, it’s never easier said than done.

Killer Hill

killer hill 3.jpg It was a beautiful spring morning and as I cruised through my neighborhood, I drove passed killer hill. I call it killer hill because when my children was very small, I decided it would be an adventure for us to take a nice long walk. Big mistake! As we approached the third block, there was grumbling and complaining and I had to try to carry them the rest of the way. Needless to say, I almost didn’t make it myself. It was really exhausting to say the least and I thought I was in shape. Ha!

Well, this morning as I went past killer hill, I saw an elderly man who was short, bending over because he couldn’t stand up straight with a walking cane, slowly walking up killer hill. He looked like he was in his late eighties with a scruffy white beard.

As I gazed at him with complete admiration, I began to imagine what his life was like before he got to this stage. Besides putting me to shame, walking up that hill, he had a past history that we will never completely know or understand.

What we can deduct is the commonalities from all our lives. He was someones child, educated through our school system in some capacity, worked in order to support himself and or family and went through good times and bad. I wondered if he ever served in the army. What else defined this man’s life? I began to think into the future and what my life would look like once I got to his age.

Life is short and getting shorter

Life is really short, and the quality of life getting shorter everyday. Anything can go wrong along the way. But what I admired about this man is his ability to stand up and walk even with his disabilities. Its easier to sit down and do nothing rather than stand up to do something. Will I have the desire, strength or motivation to follow his lead in spite of my age? Or will I sit down and play dead.

What I learned from this experience is to learn to enjoy each day to its fullest. While you have good health and youth on your side, don’t squander it on foolishness. Make everyday count for today is given and tomorrow is not promised. Dream and live your dreams and may your yesterdays yield better tomorrows.

 

 

 

My Mother Dearest

20160818_110527

I almost lost my mother recently. After being rushed to the hospital, she was diagnosed with a stroke. Mom’s been battling her illnesses for many years, and little by little its been taking a toll on her body. My mom is a fighter and thank God for it, as she is slowly pulling through this last bombardment to her body. We take so much in life for granted. What if mom didn’t survive this incident?

We all have the power to change, if we only beleive. Life can be tough, and it sometimes gets the best of us day-to-day. However, we have to continue to believe in our hearts, we have the power within to change our destiny. No matter how long it takes anything is possible. Dream your dreams and keep on living a life of purpose.

LIFE REGRETS

e608332df7a2ea63294aa6a0bf201633If you live regretting what happened in the past, you will never be able to live your dreams. Your past is yesterday and your future is tomorrow. In the present, learn the lessons life has taught you and make improvements to achieve a new reality. None of us can change our past, but we can reshape our future.

Reflecting on regretful situations will only cause you to focus on negative thoughts while losing your peace of mind. I’ve been there, and believe me when I say you don’t want to go there. Learn to forgive yourself for the past.

Forgive yourself for things you never completed or said that’s too late to change. Don’t let it define who you are as a person. It’s  never too late to make a change. Let go of what doesn’t serve your interest.

When given new opportunities, don’t be afraid to take a chance. Whether it’s starting a new business, changing careers, or going to school in order to learn new skills. Know who you are and figure out what you want out of life.

The forces within, sometimes  whisper that you’re not capable of committing to anything or completing a task.  Believe you can change your circumstances in spite of where you are right now. Don’t allow shoulda coulda woulda  to be your mantra.

Take a chance, live a life worth living.One day you might be surprised how your realty will change. Stop living with regret knowing you can’t change the past. However you can try to reshape your future. Make every day count towards a more productive tomorrow. Don’t settle for less, find your own path. In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.
