To the days When you don’t feel like it To the days when you Are overwhelmed To the days… —-// I make myself get out of bed some days I make myself work out I make myself rest Because I feel like I HAVE to be doing …progress. . . I’m running from laziness and stagnant… I just want to be better today Every day Than I was yesterday In everything —// A lot of people like to blame the past …and curse the future… I don’t though. All of those things made me who I am… How can I hate that? Oh I can learn from it…but I don’t hate it… It takes discipline It takes courage It takes grit Continuously doing Daily New habits I don’t ask myself how I feel anymore … I’m asking “What can I do with this? How can I use this? “
What is poetry? What is art? It’s not perfect I might not ever get where I’m going But atleast I made my mind up And I showed up every day And I said this This is what I want This life This is what I see Most people never even show up…
Don’t give up Don’t give up You walk through it Grit Daily And you will look back To a yellow room unfinished In a basement Unfinished With concrete floors Or a trailer Or a house Or any number of things …. And how they made you
You’re right here Right now And you and your dreams matter Show up for yourself It gets better. What else is there?
I’ve been thinking about how to write this one, It’s pretty simple,
At some point you wake up and you realize You can’t bring everyone with you.
You can’t rescue everyone.
Your goals, your dreams, that’s yours.
Dream bigger. Dream until it scares you. This is yours. Write a check to yourself. So big it scares you. You’ve got to keep moving forward. It’s easy, too easy, to whine, and be entitled, But there is no security, only opportunity, You have to change your perspective… “What can I do, so I can afford this?” I’m talking about rich dad poor dad, I’m talking about growing, I’m talking about facing your self, And dying to self. This bail me out, Save me, Me me me me… I have an excuse…. Excuse your excuse, It has to die to self. Because we are growing. We are committed. We are looking for opportunity I don’t have time To hang out with “If only.” I am moving forward. It’s about what we build It’s about what we build… Because what we build… We can go there And come back here… And help one another … But I can’t do that… If I stay here… If I settle back into apathy Hoping someone or something will come along one day and rescue me… Because I’m entitled…
No… I face myself everyday. And I will consistently be better Every day… And I will not quit. Surround yourself with ambition a new culture of thinking Where you either thrive and grow or you get left behind…
Life is not fair. It is not secure, I watched my dad struggle My family struggle But it’s not his fault Her fault Or anyone’s fault And I have regrets … If I didn’t I would not be teachable I would be stupid… You have to face yourself. sit down and dream bigger. Bigger. Learn about the things you are not strong in. Learn about finances. Learn something new every day.
It’s your life, not anyone else’s. Why not you? Why not us? Why not now? What else is there?
