It’s Up to You!

842

Riding on my rocky road

Filled with twists and turns

Not exactly sure where I’m going

But I know I’m moving

Running

Running scared

Running silly

And then I stop – bend over – pick up a tidbit or two

Laugh

Guffaw

Another lesson learned

I saw it first as a place I needed to get to

A destination with a welcome mat

But you know what?

I’m already here

It’s not the place you end up – it’s the steps you take

The strides you run

The times you laugh

The times you cry

It’s what you learn

And what you teach

It’s who you meet

And how you leave

How you love

And how you respond to hate

It’s here

It’s now

Not then

Or there

It’s how you care

It’s where you are and what you do in this moment

This one right now

What was then is simply the stepping stone

And what will be…..

It’s up to you

 

Blessitude

    you’re right, it’s always “up to us”…
    Not sure I will be able to “like” and to comment in the coming days, don’t worry! I’ll try to, “on verra”, we’ll see whether I’m “connected to the world” or not! I looking forward to discovering new inspiring landscapes,
    Anyway, I’ll think to you πŸ™‚ β™₯β™₯β™₯

I was so so happy to see you on my page!!! You have been missed my friend…but you are so wonderful to stay connected as you have. Thank you thank you…for your support. This poem just poured out of me today….I was set to post a haiku….but inspiration would have none of it. I love when that happens. πŸ™‚ I think of you and I send you such positive loving energy that you are having a delightful time with your travels. I can’t wait to read the words that come from that. And thank you dearest for knowing I am a worry wart…and warning me of your absence. Much love to you ❀ ❀ You made my day!!

    1. Hi Trini…no worries sweet one! I am happy you liked this one… it was fun to write. It can be exhausting to you physically when you go through the kind of day you did yesterday….from sadness….to exhilaration and divinity! Rest up and make sure you take care of yourself. We will touch base tomorrow….Sweet dreams ❀
