Not Meant to Be – Poem

Our bond was stuck together like glue

Forever you and I, forever me and you

We laughed and smiled getting to know each other

You went from my friend to my lover

We had many dates in store

It was then that I realized we were not compatible anymore

I thought you were mine to keep forever

But sadly we could not make it last through the weather

I have my regrets and you do too

My life was not meant to be with you

I wish you all the best in life

One day you’ll be someone’s husband and I’ll be someone’s wife



I hope you enjoyed my first WordPress poem! I wanted to give poetry a try. Have a great week everyone!

A Little Kindness

I know how important kindness is, I know how important it is for other people and for ourselves. With so much going on in this world, sometimes we forget that a simple hello, or a smile can go such a long way. Your act of kindness may be one that someone hasn’t had for a long time. A smile and a nice gesture can change a life.

When life gets rough, it can be hard to focus on the good, we keep wanting to focus on what is going on in our lives and how we can fix it. We can forget how something so small can make us feel human, connected, loved, and respected. Everyone is fighting many battles in their own lives. The happiest person also struggles deeply because we are all human no matter what face we may put on. The kindness of even just one person has the power to turn a day around and even change a life. Make someone’s day today, smile, let them go ahead of you in line, give a hug, check in on a loved one, treat others the way you want to be treated. YOU can truly make a difference!

Find the Meaning

Have you ever got to thinking and realized that some situations keep arising in your life? Do you get upset or mad at yourself when you respond exactly the same way to life each time? Are you confused on why certain things don’t seem to stop repeating themselves over and over? Perhaps you may think you are doing something wrong, or that your life will never change, but it can and it will in time.

I am a firm believer that all situations in our lives, good or bad, were placed there to help us grow and become the best person we can possibly be. They were meant to teach us and make us stronger. I truly believe that each lesson is there and will result is greatness once mastered. Think of how amazing the feeling is when you conquer something, or you no longer struggle with something that has plagued you because you didn’t give up on finding a way to change and make it work.

Life can no doubt be very challenging, sometimes I let my struggles get the best of me. Lately I have been trying to challenge my thoughts by thinking of what I am meant to learn by my circumstances. What lesson is this situation, or person trying to teach me? Life is all about learning and pushing forward.

Motivation

Happy Sunday my friends. How is everyone doing? I usually find motivation and inspiration anywhere, just going about my daily life brings me a lot of ideas and thoughts that come to my head. It sometimes seems that everywhere I turn, every situation I’m in, every person I meet, could end up being my next idea for a blog post.

Motivation for me also comes from other people. Perhaps my biggest motivator is you all and the kind people that keep telling me to push and pursue my passion of writing and blogging. I’ve loved writing since I was a child. When I was younger it would take a while for the ideas to come to me, but now as an adult, the ideas keep flowing. I love the feeling of sitting down with a pen and putting my thoughts on paper, I also love to sit down with my laptop and type away.

Whatever makes you feel motivated, keep seeking it. Keep pushing towards your goals and your passions. You were meant to pursue the things that light your soul on fire!

Fear

There are many things in life that we desire and want for ourselves and for our lives. We have a drive inside of us that pushes us to keep going and stay determined to reach whatever we are seeking. Sometimes a little doubt and fear creeps in and can throw us off track.

Think back to something that you really wanted. Think of how much drive and persistence you had while trying to reach that goal, or desire. There was probably not much that could stand in your way, you had your eye on the prize and pursued until you reached what you had sought.

Fear is an emotion that serves a purpose in an emergency situation, or as a warning etc., however it shouldn’t be an emotion that we feel constantly, or one that stops us from living out our daily lives. Anxiety is the base of fear and when we let those thoughts of fear and doubt creep in, we can destroy our happiness and our motivation. Whatever you want in life, go for it, don’t let anything stop you, and know that life will play out just as it should!
