Potential is not fixed at birth, nor dependent on DNA.
The same genius that scatters the stars and fuels the oceans infuses each of us.
We are all born as greatness, the only validation we need to live and die to the fullest.
Have a great day!
The well of goodness runs deep. Drink fully and share the cup.
Let the truth as you know it shine and illuminate your steps.
Greatness is born not of talent, but of willingness.
What are you willing to do?
My mantra for 2016:
Today’s the day!
Do you have a saying, song, image or word, that brings you back to earth or rockets you into space?
Don’t let what you might do in six months decide today. You might not live that long.
This I wrote after gazing at my newly printed January-June 2016 calender, excited over the already-filled in dates, the lists and schedules I’ve committed to, and oh so many possibilities for summer 2016 when my obligations here are complete!
Forget it, Miss Keene. Sure, plans and goals give life meaning. Keep you going when life’s a mushy pile.
But really—isn’t today the best day you’ve ever lived?
Granted, not all days are. Some are the worst. Yet, today, today is the best ever and I intend to enjoy it to the fullest.
You knew me best
When we were kids
We ran and played
On skates and skids
We wrestled round
The floor and bed
Splashed pool and lake
Smoked by the shed
You cried with me
When pets were lost
Broke head and arm
Your bike was tossed
And now machines
Keep you alive
Cigs killed your lungs
They won’t revive
I can’t play now
You run alone
Please take my love
To worlds unknown
