It’s Time…

hourglass-1875812__340

It’s time and you know it!

You know the feeling but you can’t quite explain it

That feeling you get when you’ve reached your limit

That feeling that empowers you

But you let your second thoughts crowd out what you should do

Don’t look at me like that, you know I’m talking to YOU 🙂

 

It’s time so NO more delaying

We’ve been going round and round doing the same things

Then wondering why we can’t see any change

Constantly turning the same pages in our lives over and over

Haven’t you noticed we’re getting older?

It’s time to make our move

We’re done procrastinating about what we’re going to do

It’s time to get ACTIVE and be PROACTIVE

In the things that we want and need to do

We have to stand up and start truly walking in our own shoes

We don’t have time to sit singing the blues

 

It’s time so you choose

Standing still we have so much to lose

So make this promise to yourself

No more sitting idly by on the shelf

If you don’t start now you’ll never forgive yourself.

If not now, then when?

Who knows how or when it will all end?

To pursue your dream – you don’t have to be a king or queen

Besides, only in trying would you have seen

How possibly different your life could have been.

Think about it, maybe it’s time!

 

Tired of all the ‘would have’ and ‘could have’ thoughts. The reality is, in life there comes a time when we just have to stop making excuses for ourselves and others and just meaningfully go after what we claim to want and desire.

Anything worth getting requires effort and hard work.

Thank you for stopping by.  Make today a great one. 🙂

Pain

 

 

 

 

 

 

This pain I’m feeling in my leg

Comes and goes

I’m starting to wonder

If it’s all in my head

 

Has time finally caught up to me

And decided to slow me down

Out of jealousy

Shamelessly attacking my knee

Maybe I’ll just put some ice on it and see

 

This pain I’m feeling in my leg

I’m convinced now it is not in my head

The pain is sometimes sharp, other times it just feels weak

Then I tell myself maybe it’s just my diet I have to tweak

I won’t delay in getting it checked

For without use of my knees I would probably be a wreck

No time to waste, I would put forward my case

And bravely look the doctor in his face 🙂

 

 

 

Obstacles

Sometimes in life our biggest obstacles are not always directly in front of us but rather the ones inside of us. 

FEAR, DOUBT, UNCERTAINTY and  NEGATIVITY are all things that can hinder our progress, growth and happiness!

Take control of your life today, by overcoming each obstacle one day at a time. The only control they have over us is what we give them.

Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

Dangers Of Playing It Too Safe

Playing it safe from time to time could save us a lot of hurt in certain situations.  I used to ‘play it safe’ and still do in some aspects of my life.  However, there is a difference between playing it safe and playing it too safe.

In fact, playing it too safe is probably one sure way of increasing the odds that very little happens to you.  You’re probably wondering, how is this a bad thing and what makes it so dangerous?

Some dangers ofplaying it too safeinclude:

  1. We limit our experiences and by extension our learning.  If you are unwilling to try new things or do things differently from time to time how would you learn and grow your knowledge.  Reading knowledge from a book is great because you get a point of reference but actually attempting something or trying something new gives you that experience that you will carry with you for a lifetime – no book could give you that!
  2. We can cause others to naturally exclude us from events.  If you are invited to events from time to time and your answer is always NO eventually people would stop asking.  Of course, I’m referring to people you are familiar with and feel safe being around.  I’m in no way suggesting you put yourself in any situation that can be potentially harmful to your well-being.
  3. We let our fear of uncertainty prevent us from truly enjoying life.  Life is full of uncertainties that is a given however, if we allow ourselves to stay out or away from everything, are we enjoying our lives?  Take small steps, do little things and enjoy the air and breath that you wake up each day to enjoy.
  4. We pass on this way of thinking and living to our children making them fearful of the world.  As parents, our job is to protect our children but we should do so objectively.  Yes, we have to warn them of the potential dangers out there but we should also show them that the world still has in it good things as well that can and should be enjoyed.
  5. We limit the knowledge we have about ourselves such as likes, dislikes, true strengths and weaknesses because we don’t want to try anything new.  When we avoid anything that is new or different how do we really know if we like it or dislike it without even trying.  I’ve never done drugs but what I know of it and seen I know without a doubt that is not something I want to be messing with.  There are just some experiences we don’t need to mess with. Pick your battles, stay safe and stay smart!  
  6. We can end up isolating ourselves.  Sometimes being too safe could cause us to share little of ourselves with others.  It’s okay to say hi or just flash a smile from time to time. Sometimes when a stranger says “Good morning or Hello” it is just that, they are simply being nice and courteous.
  7. We have difficulty accepting change.  We want things how we want it, the way we’ve known it and don’t want to try anything else.  It is good to change up your routine from time to time.  Take a different route home, try a different brand it is good to have options.

All in all, life is just too short to be stuck doing things one way all the time.  We are here to enjoy life, to learn, to love and share with each other while having some fun along the way.  Create memories that put a smile on your face and brings joy to your heart.  Be brave but not reckless. Share the moments with the people you love.

Stay blessed.  Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

Have a great day!

 

Clown Nightmare

Daily Prompt: Relieved

Image Credit: Pixabay.com

“It was just dream,” said David as he woke up covered in his sweat.  His heart racing as he was running for his life as he believed he was near death.

He has always been tormented as a child by his fear of clowns.   Now a grown man, avoiding clowns was his action plan.   His fears did not subside because he would often hide them inside.

“Are you okay babe?” asked his girlfriend Samantha. This was the third time this week that he had awoken her from her sleep.

Tonight was a special night, it was Halloween.  His brother Dave knew how much he hated clowns and planned to surprise him tonight of all nights with his clown costume.  Samantha advised Dave against it though and hoped that would be the end of that.

It was 5 minutes before midnight and there was a loud, frantic knocking at the door.  David looked at Samantha with a concerned look on his face as he grabbed his baseball bat and slowly approached the front door.

“Who is it?” shouted David.

“It’s me Dave open up, hurry!” shouted Dave in a shaky voice.

When David opened the door he was frozen in fear. He saw his twin brother held at gunpoint by someone in a clown suit.  All his childhood fears came rushing back faster than his heart could pump the blood through his veins.

Samantha stood there also frozen and in shock and could not believe this was really happening.  Get on the floor shouted the strange man to Dave as he pushed him into the apartment.  David decided enough was enough and he would not live in fear any longer.  He hit the gun out of the stranger’s hand and began beating him all over his body with the bat.

It’s Dillon! It’s Dillon, stop!  David eventually stopped as the clown mask fell off and his other twin brother’s blood covered face emerged.

He dropped to his knees and hugged his unconscious twin relieved that he was not the monster he envisioned all these years.

Samantha called an ambulance and they all went to the hospital. Dillon recovered with minor injuries.  Dave and Dillon promised never to use David’s fear against him again.

After that night, David was no longer afraid of clowns.

Let’s clear the air

Daily Prompt: Trace

Gone without a trace

It hurts how much I miss your face

You’ve left your mark on my heart

Although we are apart

I can still feel the spark

………………………………………………………..

Your warm embrace

Your gentle touch and

Sense of humour

I miss so much

…………………………………………………………

Even with all the joy and the laughter

I can’t pretend your silence doesn’t matter

The words you don’t say

Won’t make the hurts go away

……………………………………………………………

You are very dear to me

I hope deep down this truth you’ll see

That the walls you’ve built

I can’t even cross them with a stilt

………………………………………………………..

I have no intention to scream and shout

Because even through your sorrow

I cannot blindly follow

For my heart, I did not borrow.
