Allow Yourself
by Catherine Pulsifer, © 2009

Allow your self to dream,
And when you do dream big

Allow yourself to learn
And when you do learn all you can

Allow yourself to laugh
And when you do share your laughter

Allow yourself to set goals
And when you do reward yourself as you move forward

Allow yourself to be determined
And when you do you will find you will succeed

Allow yourself to believe in yourself
And when you do you will find self confidence

Allow yourself to lend a helping hand
And when you do a hand will help you.

Allow yourself relaxation
And when you do you will find new ideas.

Allow yourself love
And when you do you will find love in return

Allow yourself to be happy
And when you do you will influence others around you.

Allow yourself to be positive
And when you do life will get easier.


Take Time
by Author Unknown

TAKE TIME to think;
it is the source of power.

TAKE TIME to read;
it is the foundation of wisdom.

TAKE TIME to play;
it is the secret of staying young.

TAKE TIME to be quiet;
it is the moment to seek God.

TAKE TIME to be aware;
it is the opportunity to help others.

TAKE TIME to love and be loved;
it is God's greatest gift.

TAKE TIME to laugh;
it is the music of the soul.

TAKE TIME to be friendly;
it is the road to happiness.

TAKE TIME to dream;
it is what the future is made of.

TAKE TIME to pray;
it is the greatest power on earth.


Today You Can
by Catherine Pulsifer

Today you can choose to count your blessings
or you can count your troubles.
Today you can live each moment
or you can put in time.

Today you can take action towards your goals
or you can procrastinate.
Today you can plan for the future
or you can regret the past.

Today you can learn one new thing
or you can stay the same.
Today you can seek possibilities
or you can overwhelm yourself with the impossible.

Today you can continue to move forward
or you can quit.
Today you can take steps towards resolving your challenges
or you can procrastinate.

You see today the choices are up to you
in deciding what you do today.

(^^^^the above is my personal fave!)


Be the Best
Whatever You Are
by Douglas Malloch

If you can't be a pine on the top of the hill
Be a scrub in the valley--

But be the best little scrub by the side of the rill;
Be a bush if you can't be a tree.

If you can't be a bush be a bit of the grass,
And some highway some happier make;

If you can't be a muskie then just be a bass--
But the liveliest bass in the lake!

We can't all be captains, we've got to be crew,
There's something for all of us here.

There's big work to do and there's lesser to do,
And the task we must do is the near.

If you can't be a highway then just be a trail,
If you can't be the sun be a star;

It isn't by size that you win or you fail--
Be the best of whatever you are!

I wrote this one for the handicapped Titled:
"Just because":

Just because im Blind dosent mean i have no Vision.
Just because i can Speak dosent mean ive nothing to Say.
Just because im Deaf dosent mean i dont know what your Talking..
Just because i  ive no Arms dosent mean i can Feel.
Just because i cant Walk dosent mean ive no place to Go.

Please world come to your Senses

Well now you got me going NG!!!
This is titled:
"The importance of one"

"One last brick completes the wall
and its the one last arch stone that sets the strength.
Its the one last drop that forces the torrent
And without one last breath, there is no death.
Now it is really about the influence of many
or more the importance of ONE!"

This is great!

Invisible wounds are the hardest to heal
For their closure depends upon the love of others
Their patience understanding and the tender gift of time!
