Fierce and beautiful

We are dynamic creatures
Housing many forms of energy

Ignore the push and pull
Of the outside world

It’s just noise
An illusion

Meant to distract and minimize
Hold you back from being


Stand firm and fierce
Let yourself bloom

Ignore the enemy’s chatter
His timeline is limited

The battle was won
Before we were created

He can’t do anything to
Change the outcome

But he wants you
To think he can

Take a deep breath

Remember whose you are

E.A. Fussell

Foolish thinking

If I throw a tantrum
And runaway
Can I hangout with you
For a day or two

Yes I know we’re too old
For such foolishness
But what if I bring an offering
Fresh flowers and hot coffee

Yes, it’s just a fantasy
I will remain where I am
But foolish thinking helps
Get me through Mondays

I am my Choices

Choices create our reality
Choices got us here and
Choices can take us there

What we daily choose
Moves us closer to or
Further from our goal

Stay on plan, or don’t
The choice is ours to make
What reality will we create?

Time & mind

Will not solve your problem
But if you are one of those
Who thinks it will
Ponder this

You already have many
Of the same things
Billionaires have
Two important ones
Include time and mind

Twenty-four hours in a day
The same amount of time as
Every other soul on earth
Rich or poor
No one has more

You have the same
Human mind as everyone else
Rich or poor
It can transform any thought
Into an experience

When you truly comprehend
Living a rich life
Has nothing to do with money
You will have more

You already own the key
All you have to do is
Unlock your mind
What you are thinking helped
Get you where you are

Change your thoughts
Create new feelings
Take positive action
Get desired results
Thoughts help create your life

Look yourself in the eye
The clock is ticking
How are you investing your
Most precious gifts time and

The third season of the year
When crops are gathered and
Leaves show us
Just how beautiful
Change can be
And then the trees
Set an example of
Letting go

A period of maturity or
Incipient decline
Aging has this same season
And some of us are in it
Daily deciding how we age
Gracefully, poorly, radically
The choice is ours
Radically sounds good to me

The Autumn air is brisk
Heralding transformation
Reminding us how quickly
Time is passing
It’s imperative to get serious
Release old ways of thinking
Let go of societal programming

Reframe the meaning
Of growing older
Break boundaries
Tear down old beliefs
Bulldoze through
Pre-conceived notions
That create mental obstacles
Stagnating, holding us back
From living our best life

We are valuable and capable
We have lived through
Everything life has thrown at us
We are courageous
We have untapped talents
Waiting to be explored
Let us explore them and
Fully embrace the season of

The stump isn’t really there

Once upon a time a farmer was riding his horse up an old road. Suddenly the horse shied when they came to a sawed off stump in the road. From that moment on, every time the horse came to that same stump, he shied. Even though he had safely passed it many times, he still shied. Finally, the farmer dug the stump out, burned it, and leveled the old road. Do know what happened? That’s right, still, every time the horse passed the place where the stump had been, he shied. The stump lived on in the horse’s memory long after it had been removed and was no longer real. Yet in the horse’s mind the fear of the stump was as real as the first time it had startled him.

We are like the horse when something gets stuck in our mind. Fear, past failures, or worry can become our stump, creating a stumbling block on the road to success.

We are also like the farmer, we can be optimistic, look for solutions, remove the stump, and level the road.

The horse’s fear did not diminish the farmer’s optimism that there was a solution to the problem. Likewise, the optimistic solution of the farmer did not alleviate the fear imbedded in the mind of the horse. Two different mindsets. Fear on one side, optimism on the other. They cannot exist at the same time.

Is an old fear, failure, or worry holding you back? Has it gotten control of your thoughts? Which mindset will you choose this day? Hold onto fear or let it go, dig it up, and level your pathway?

You can change your mind. The stumbling block that you think is blocking your path to success is not really there. It is only a thought.

Take action now. Replace fear with faith. No whining or complaining just believe that you can do it and you can. Say to yourself:

“ I have made mistakes and learned a lot from them. My faith replaces fear, right now. It’s time for me to move on. I am ready to reach my full potential. I believe in the power of my creator and the mind I have been blessed with. I choose the right thoughts for me to achieve my desired results. All things work out for my highest and greatest good.”

Believe in yourself like I believe in you.

Much love,

Even deeper

This life is not practice
If I had understood that sooner
I would have:
Let go of my ego
Taken better care of my body
Laughed at fear
Written more poetry
Danced to every song played
Cussed less
Loved more
Smiled in the middle of pain
Loved even deeper
