This beautiful blue and green planet as observed through the darkness of space
Spinning on its axis with a beautiful grace
How blessed with fortune are we as a race
To live on this Orb, such a wonderful place?
A poem by Ricky.
Life is a strange thing. One day it can be brilliant, the next not so good. On the bad days it is so important to remember everything good in your life. If you cannot think of one good thing then turn your attention to our beautiful planet. None of us would be here if Earth wasn’t here to provide us with everything that we as a species need to survive and thrive. At our most fundamental we should be extremely grateful for this.
Procrastinate: to keep delaying something that must be done, often because it is unpleasant or boring:
“I know I’ve got to deal with the problem at some point – I’m just procrastinating.”
Above is the definition of something that I have long been guilty of, procrastination, I’d always find an excuse to procrastinate and generally it wouldn’t matter what I was trying to put off until later, be it chores, shopping, gardening or even writing (which I greatly enjoy). All have been on my “I’ll do it later” list.
Creating my own Blog has been on my list. Up until now.
So what’s changed?
Simple…my mindset. Life waits for no-one.
I have long dreamed of having a blog, somewhere to write down the things on my mind, a place to let others read (and hopefully enjoy) my thoughts and poetry. But mostly a place where I can give out advice on overcoming the issues surrounding mental health and the steps that people can take to help motivate and push themselves to achieve anything they set their minds to. I could leave it no longer, I am determined to turn this dream into a reality.
Each and every new follower of my blog is helping me to achieve this dream and to every one of you fantastic people I would just like to extend a truly heartfelt thank you. Please do feel free to also leave comments.
So my message is don’t delay. Live your life for the moment, live for the day.
