Poem of the Day ~ The Stream

The Stream

Lula Lowe Weeden 

It was running down to the great Atlantic.
I called it back to me,
But it slyly looked and said,
“I have not time to waste,”
And just went arunning running on.

Feeling Good Tip of The Day ~ Don’t Take the Easy Road

Take charge of your own growth. Growth, it’s been said, is the only evidence of happiness. Every day you always have a choice–you can either step forward into growth, or step backward into safety.” Source

NOTE: Playing it safe is the easy road, but not necessarily the best road. it’s the easy road. Taking the tough road requires discipline, patience, and endurance.  It’s the only way to grow. When we test our limits we enter into an “uncomfortable zone.” It’s not easy but it provides us with opportunities to gain confidence, test ourself against the unknown, and the opportunity to look back and say, “I didn’t quit. I did it!”

Positive Thought of the Day ~ What Are You Waiting For?

“Paths are made by walking.”

Franz Kafka

NOTE: Some years back I was having trouble making a decision when a wise old friend pulled me aside and said, “Ray, wish in one hand and poop (his language was much more colorful) in the other. See which you get first.” His folk wisdom stuck with me. Kafka was right, paths are made by walking.
