Of Friendship and Kindred Spirits

“If I died tomorrow and you came upon my words, 
would you know me any better, 
would you let my voice be heard?”
So long ago 
I wrote these words, 
 a teen, 
struggling to find my voice…
figuring out who I was, 
 who I would be-
feeling small,
without a choice.
Surely I was a stranger 
even, to me.
But I’ve met a few,
brave enough, 
to gently 
peel away the layers
exposing my soul-
without breaking my heart…
I’ve met a few,
willing to travel the road,
pull back the veil
carry the load-
Who offer up words that bring
 light and grace,
softening my face-
easing my fears,
by their presence.
I’ve known some still, 
in kin
but not flesh
dear to my heart
on whom I depend.
I remain…
dependent on the love of 
one faithful friend.
Forever, friends remain
a part of us, 
in life, in death
do they really depart from us.
“If I died tomorrow and you came upon my words, 
would you know me any better, 
would you let my voice be heard?
Linking with dVerse, in memory of a fellow poet, I did not know,
but who was a kindred spirit in love of words.
To all of my friends, and kindred spirits, 
rejoice in today,
for tomorrow is a dream.

Wisdom From Dory (How To Get It Done)

What keeps YOU from being more active?
Lack of motivation?
Lack of energy?
Unsure where to start?
You are waiting for the stars to align properly?
Perceived time constraints?
All of the above?
Here is what I want to say to you, regardless of which of these is hindering your ability to progress. During your lifetime you will experience all of these at one time or another.
You want to know the one answer that makes the difference?
Your response to your circumstances will determine whether you think about “just doing it” or whether you get it done. 
Do not let your present circumstances dictate your choices.
You have a body, and breath. That is all you need.
Move it. 
Something is better than nothing.
Take a tip from Dory, “Just keep swimming…”
So what is keeping you from being more active- if you desire to be more active?
That is where to start.
Choose to move in whatever way appeals to you. 
Stop making excuses.
Choose today.
Just get moving.
One breath at a time.
One foot… or fin flap after the other…
Just jump in, start now.
