I’ll admit it. It’s been a rough few weeks.
I haven’t been able to write.
No feelings of creativity or inspiration.
I’ve focused on survival,
It was all I could muster.
As I planted a smile on my face
and went to work each day.
Perhaps I was letting go,
Working on accepting what is.
Grief can come in all forms.
I haven’t seen or ever felt
there was a perfectly defined
set of rules,
for how you make it
While watching some Hulu last night
Along came a song…
Exactly what I needed,
not that I knew what I needed.
My mind, feet and soul started to dance.
Whatever was going on,
I am here now.
Happy Saturday to you!
REO SPEEDWAGON sang it loud and so did/do I.
“So if you’re tired of the same old story,
Oh, turn some pages
I will be here when you are ready
To roll with the changes, yeah, yeah…”
That song, produces pictures of
a time of my life filled with glorious memories…
I heard it last night and discovered
it STILL delivers a special message, meaning
and triggers a quickened heart beat.
(August 4, 2017)
It sparks a fire in my soul!
(Originally released in 1978!)
Unbelievable! Or is it?
I have said it before and you will surely hear,
or read it from me again.
It’s the seemingly simple things in life,
that appear and help get you through.
No matter where you are,
Lounging on the couch,
Driving down the road…
Life, inspires you,
If you allow yourself to be open to suggestion.
Whether it be the infectious giggling of a child
in the grocery line behind you.
A new or old favorite song on the radio.
An unexpected happy ending of a movie,
A call from an old friend,
A sweet bird singing in the branches
Outside your window,
Or a neighborhood dog that suddenly appears
Just to say hello.
If it creates a spark of hope,
Quickens your heart rate,
Makes you feel good,
Grab onto it, embrace it!
Tap into the positive energy.
Allow it to help propel you forward.
To place one foot in front of the other,
On your journey of life.
Kind Regards and
feeling grateful for a new day – K
