Damn Hard

Life ain’t always beautiful

Sometimes

It’s damn hard

There are moments

I may feel like giving up

But

It’s just not in my blood

So

I give myself a swift kick

In the keister

Jerk my attitude

Back into the right shape

And

Determine to do

Whatever it takes

No Obligation

You are under no obligation

To be the person you were

Five minutes ago

This is your life

The footprint you leave

On this world

Is yours to impart

The entire universe is impacted By the choices you make

Your belief can move mountains

Your thoughts

Create your experience

What will you create

What mountain will you move

How will you impact the universe

Do you like who you are

Yes, great

No, change yourself

Stop waiting for “when”

When is NOW

Grab hold of your thoughts

Grab hold of life

And

Wring the living daylights

Out of it

Hope

Drugs ruin

Alcohol ruins

Political stance ruins

A closed mind ruins

Religiousness ruins

The ruin is a hardened heart

Eyes that don’t see

Ears that don’t hear

A tongue that speaks froward things

But I still hold onto hope

Hope that the drug addict will be

Completely healed

Hope the alcoholic will overcome the urge

Hope political stances find common ground

Hope that closed minds will be opened

Hope that religiousness will give way

To the truth

Of unconditional love

From God

Who dwells within us all

If we believe

Patience

Got my rose colored glasses on

Ignoring my sore muscles from

Weight training week one

Ignoring my scale

Trying to anyway

Chilling on my sofa chewing kale

The pain will get easier

The scale will get lighter

The kale will get swallowed

Patience girl

Patience

Just show up for yourself

Every day
