Today this could be, the greatest day of our lives…

Or this could be the worst day, depending on your perspective…

Start your day of well today,

Focus on being all that you can be,

If I go out into the world with the mindset that everyday I am going to live up to my full potential,

Then Everyday is a Great Day

If my day starts with fear and an outlook of doom and gloom, then how can I expect my day to go any other way,

Things may or may not go the way I want them to go,

But what is important is that I be open to experience everything the day has to offer and not close my mind with my own preconceptions about life,

If I live for today, truly in every moment and every second of the day,

Then this has not been a day that has been wasted,

For what I experience today may carry me into the future,

Today this could be the greatest day of our lives

If we live everyday this way, I’m not saying we won’t be disappointed,

But we will be present to handle and face the challenges that we are presented.

No two days are ever the same,

I can never get yesterday back and I do not know with absolute certainty what tomorrow holds for me.

I wish you well on your journey today,

And I hope you make the most of today, however you choose to spend it

As I shut my front door and go out into the world, I have hope and look forward to the challenges I am to face today,

Life is truly too short to spend worrying about the past, present and future; try and focus on the here and now.

Today this could be the greatest day of our lives

Whatever life has to offer you today, I hope you have an open mind and open heart to experience it.

Everyday is a great day depending on how “I” choose to perceive the world.

We are young

We are young,

We are young,

 

We may be smaller, but we’re not weak,

Do you hear our adolescent voices?

And comprehend the words we speak?

 

If wisdom truly comes from age,

Were you not once at this first page?

Did the world not give you room to shine?

Yet you deny the voice that’s mine

 

But why?….

Because…

We are young,

 

My journey may have only just begun,

But were you not once

 

A child?

A teen and all between?

A Daughter?

A Son?

 

Yet you choose to judge us,

Why?

Because…

We are young

 

See the world through our eyes,

As you once did

 

Hope,

Passion,

Sometimes anger and pain,

Try to recall when you felt the same,

 

The world may be a scary place,

To you…

 

But that not what I see,

You may think that it’s my naivety,

 

But that’s ok,

 

Like you have done before me,

I’ll find my own way,

 

I’ll laugh,

I’ll smile,

And sometimes cry,

 

I’ll scream and shout, until I’m heard,

I may not take you at your word,

 

I’m still finding who I am and what I will be,

And at times I do not know…

 

But that’s ok

 

We are young,

But do not judge us by our age,

Take the time to fully read and understand each page,

 

Only then will you finally see,

That we are our own people, both collective and individually

 

As were you…

 

When “You” were young

 

Try and remember that. 🙂 Xx

 

I’m Sorry

im-sorry

I’m Sorry,

 

I’m Sorry I don’t live up to your standards,

But it’s not my fault that you can’t see,

That there is only one true version of me,

 

I’m Sorry is a word I used to say to you,

Before I had the chance to really think it through

 

So many days I used to agonise,

Why do I have this need to look perfect in your eyes?

Why did it take me so long to realise?

 

This shit ain’t worth it,

My life aint perfect,

But the way I feel today,

I know that I’m worth it,

 

I was once Sorry for me,

Now I’m Sorry for you,

I’m Sorry you cut us short and didn’t want to see this through,

 

I’m Sorry for all the moments that we will miss,

To Touch,

To Hold,

To share a Kiss,

 

I’m Sorry that you could not wait to see,

That there is so much more to me,

 

I used to say Sorry and thought that I meant it,

But not anymore….

 

I’m not Sorry for who I am,

 

Whether you’re in my life or not….
