Some Words for Life

Every so often I like to share an inspirational or motivational poem that I come across, hoping that you will find it to be both timely and purposeful.  I know for me, a great quote or a moving poem really motivates me to reflect on my life and look inside myself for the opportunity to learn and grow.

Sometimes the words can be somewhat trivial, but even so, there is often a hidden gem in the midst of them which can, if applied, become the catalyst for amazing transformation.  It sounds a little kooky, I know, but words that touch the heart and shake the soul can inspire any of us to achieve the amazing.  We only have to find the courage to break free from the ordinary, and broaden our experience.

Not every quote or thought or poem that I post carries with it the same potential power for everyone who reads them.  In fact, some are just interesting or entertaining, while others are merely fun or thought provoking.  But the truth is, that if one person is moved to become more happy or successful in any part of their life, then it would have been worth it for me to pass along that message.

With all of that in mind, here’s a wonderful poem that I read this morning and thought was pretty cool.  It was written by Nancye Sims.  She has been writing inspirational poetry for over twenty five years, and I think you’ll find this one really moving.  Let me know what you think.

A Creed to Live By

Don’t undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others,

It is because we are different, that each of us is special.

Don’t set your goals by what other people deem important,

Only you know what is best for you.

Don’t take for granted the things closest to your heart,

Cling to that as you would your life, for without them life is meaningless.

Don’t let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or the future,

By living your life one day at  a time, you live all the days of your life.

Don’t give up when you still have something to give,

Nothing is really over, until the moment you stop trying.

Don’t be afraid to admit that you are less than perect,

It is the fragile thread that binds us to each other.

Don’t be afraid to encounter risks,

It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.

Don’t shut love out of your life by saying it’s impossible to find,

The quickest way to receive love is to give love.

The fastest way to lose love is to hold on too tightly,

And the best way to keep love is to give it wings.

Don’t dismiss your dreams; to be without dreams is to be without hope,

To be without hope is to be without purpose.

Don’t run through life so fast that you forget where you’ve been,

But also know where you’re going.

Life is not a race, but a journey, to be savored every step of the way.
