Do not put your life on hold until retirement, or be so caught up in the getting and having that you abdicate the living.
Do not sit in front of a screen and watch other people having all the adventures.
The world is broad and wide: get out there, see it, do it, live it.
Do not spend your life in a job that you loath, grubbing for money, always in search of the elusive promotion that leads to more stress.
Find the job that makes your heart sing and do it joyfully. You’ll never work again.
Do not stay long in company with toxic people: seek out those who encourage and support you and make you feel good, and then reciprocate. If you can.
Find someone to share your life with, someone to build dreams with to laugh and cry and talk with on matters great and small, or if to sit in comparable silence, someone who will be there for you no matter what comes.
We are here once and time is short. Let us make the most of what is given to us.
Do not put your life on hold: pursue your dreams and DO IT NOW.
While We May
Let us walk among the quiet places
of this earth, among the woods
and hills, and share the peace
that’s only found in open spaces.
Let us watch the changing light
and shifting forms of cloud
where wind and sunshine put
the shadows of the storm to flight.
Let us sit at dusk and see
the stars prick out across the sky
while blue deepens to dark
and shade is green beneath the trees.
Let us not despise familiar things
because they’re free or commonplace
and we become blind to all
the simplest pleasures living brings.

Hits to Date:
I’d like to think some words of mine
Survived into some distant future time;
That someone, reading, found a thought
That resonated in his mind,
And by that means I touched a chord
In him as others long since dead
Have done in me. And he might smile
To hear the echo of his inmost thought
Returned, and know that he was not alone.
Jane was a great poet. She wrote many poems,
these are a few of her spiritual ones. Go to her website: firstname.lastname@example.org
Historical story always romantic: P
