Poems – Expectations.

We expect a lot from other people. We sometimes expect others to bring their A game to the table….to be better friends, companions, coworkers, or family members. But are we doing the same? If we’re going to expect these behaviors from other people, we’ve got to first develop them in ourselves.

Poems – Make It Through.

So often, the trail to success or peace is littered with tears, failure, setbacks, discomfort, or trials of some sort. That’s just life.

But if you make it through, all of those little setbacks and unforeseen events become worthwhile parts of the journey. They become lessons. Tools. Bridges. All of those failures become the bricks that line your path to something greater.

What matters is that you did it, you endured, you persevered, despite the odds stacked against you. It’s impossible to get through life without a little mud on your shirt, without a few cuts and scrapes. But if you’re still standing in the end, there’s value in that. Keep charging forward.

Poems – This Moment.

Yes, this is an oversimplified play on words, but just take a minute to think about it. Everything that’s happened up to this point has led us to this very moment. Simple, but powerful. All the trials, all the struggles, the joys, and the victories have influenced where we are right now.

This moment matters.

Perhaps some setbacks have forced you to quit – well, within this very moment is the opportunity to finally push through. On the flip side, now is the perfect time to express gratitude for merely being alive to appreciate this moment. Do what you can today – every day- to
influence tomorrow in some small way. Pursue a goal. Start a hobby. What we do matters just as much as what we don’t do.
