Life is a lot of work! Getting old is more work! What is it that gives us the strength to continue when we are tired and feeling weak? Sometimes an inspirational idea can help us renew ourselves and be filled with strength to fulfill our day’s purpose. Inspiration comes from anywhere. watching a good movie, looking of beautiful images, sometimes just walking on the streets, however, all inspiration is the idea that our lives are meaningful. Inspiration to me is knowing that what I do matters deeply to the universe. When you have the feeling that your actions are meaningful, you will become filled with strength and vigor to fulfill your life’s purpose. like this, I hope and I believe in me every day…Nothing is more important as a day by day, little by little and always! Society put so much pressure on us to be perfect people, forever young, pretty, skinny, etc…but never be afraid to just be yourself! It is hard but we will the win against ours internal fights.
Inspirational poems of wisdom
Difficult To Do
Poet: Wilhelmina Stitch
A thoughtful person said (so I have read)
It isn’t easy to apologize,
It isn’t easy when all hope has fled
To keep on going, but it’s very wise.
It isn’t easy to admit you’re wrong;
To swallow insult and to face a sneer;
It isn’t easy to sing loud and long
When you are in the clutch of deadly fear.
It isn’t easy, friend to try again
When you have come a cropper-but it’s best.
To scorn a failure and to laugh at pain
Is but to prove that you have stood life’s test.
It isn’t easy when hot temper flares
To subjugate it to sweet reason’s sway.
When fretted by a horde of pressing cares,
It’s hard to keep on smiling through the day.
When clouds are black and hanging very low,
It’s hard to see the silver lining, friend.
None of these things are easy, this we know,
But aren’t they worth the struggle in the end?
”Because I know who I am,
I’m at ease and free.
I can’t be like others,”
And they can’t be me.” Unique © Abimbola T. Alabi
”Memories that feel as if they occurred yesterday
turn to flashes of moments that seem to fade away.” Time© Joe Massocco
“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at al” Emily Dickinson
“Sometimes you hear a voice through the door calling you… This turning toward what you deeply love saves you.” Rumi
”Pick the sadness up off the floor,
Sweep it into the wind.
Close the door on self-hatred.
Never let it back in. ” Pain Ends © Katy A. Brown
”No longer compare yourself
Or your flaws to others’ perfections.
Take the negativity off the shelf.”
Focus on your direction.” Pain Ends © Katy A. Brown
”Funny it seems, but by keeping its dreams, it learned to breathe fresh air. ”Tupac Shakur “The Rose That Grew From Concrete”
I love this poem because they make me fell positive again. So, I decided to publish it here to never forgot who I am.
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2012
”Of all the things you can do,
Promise yourself you will try.
If doesn’t even matter if you win,
As long as you apply.
No one can ask for anything,
Of you, except yourself.
If you don’t want to make a move,
It’s you who’ll be left out.
So don’t allow yourself to miss,
Out on important things.
You may not feel that they are worthy,
Yet turn out to be your wings.
Experiences make us whole,
And make life feel fulfilled.
And when it’s time to look back,
Don’t let yourself feel unskilled.
So don’t allow yourself to stop,
For no apparent reason.
Promise yourself you will try,
And take on any season.”
