Try, Try Again

Hello folks,

you who give me positive strokes!

 

Have you ever made plans

that were excellent but then didn’t turn out

like having lots of pots and pans

but being lousy at making kraut?

 

Methinks I need to reformulate in my life

stress causes personal strife

Take advantage of when your body and mind work best

Put good principles to the test

 

What does all this have to do with Debbie Dear?

 

She was wondering why evenings are very low productivity for her

(if any can be measured!)

Why is it so easy to write and clean house before work?

Why does a pretty pumpkin arrive at her house every night

content to sit and smile but that’s about all?

 

Aha, thought she,

I will work with my inclinations and their time table

and not act when I am expected to

Do my have-tos and want-tos

(cleaning and writing, respectively)

in the morning when I am at my best

This is not a “do what the Joneses do” type of thing

 

I never wanted to follow the Joneses anyway

and I was always kind of off in my own little world

Here is where my different-ness can be a plus

I don’t have to try to come alive at night

 

Let me be a morning songbird

who writes and cleans and smiles and sings

before work ~~

Let the night owls guard the night

and use their energy when they want to

 

When a plan or plans don’t work

it doesn’t mean they were bad

they are just something to give credence to  the tried and true ~

“Try, try again”.

 

What would have happened if all the inventors

had given up?

They found their way

and so will I.

****

So, my friends….this is my latest attempt at “getting myself together”.  Do you know what, though?  It is great this time because I could write a poem about it so it’s more firmly in my mind.    🙂   How do you think I will do?  Do you have anything like this going on for you — trying to have the parts of your life fit together better?  I am sure my readers would like to hear, too.   Until then….

your friend Debb

Hello,

My challenge today is to write an entire post with having no three-letter words.

I believe it is my duty to practice writing as often as possible, plus these prompts look pretty interesting.  (Even if I participate with older prompts, that’s okay, as most experiences will be worth it.)

What challenges a person to better their skill or abilities?  WordPress is an answer I came up with right away.  Motivation is another good thing when you’re looking to improve something about yourself or your life.

That leads me to those areas of goal setting along with  time management.  Is it a perfectionist’s exercise or would it be able to be something that would interest anyone?

I dream of many, many readers sending their comments along to me.  (Hope I didn’t allow a three-letter-word into this post?)   I also hope that my whole WordPress family will participate in these awesome writing activities.
