Today I wasn’t really feeling myself and decided to find an old journal I had to review the pages. It’s a journal from 2014 when I was just getting into the process of blogging/finding myself. I wrote a lot about different things happening in my life along with my goals for upcoming years. Basically, I wanted to look back at past stuff to see whether I was really growing or if any changes were actually happening in my life. Sometimes the reminders are good to show you that your life do has meaning and you’ll get through this.
Flipping through the pages I also found
a little poem (words I wrote) which I wanted to share; as it needs to be not only a daily reminder for me, but for others as well.
The mind is a powerful thing.
Do not waste it.
You have the power to do anything
once you put your mind to it.
The power to create;
The power to love;
The power to share.
Stop dreaming and imagining life a different way,
& begin to live it.
We keep thinking we have all the time in the world.
However, in reality we don’t.
Time waits on no man.
We could be here one moment and gone the next.
Going through this journal made me realize how long I’ve been preaching this to myself. Yet I still struggle with it by imagining a different life to the one I have now. Yes, some things have changed since then but there’s still a lot to achieve.
Each small step is still progress even when you feel like time is running away.
