Making Time to Make It Happen

Tag Archives: DPChallenge

Take a line from a song that you love or connect with. Turn that line into the title of your post. 

First breath of air,

First word and first tooth,

First car and first date

All milestones of youth.

Growing up quickly

Right before our eyes

“Time is a gift”

~ Words from the wise.

Rushing home from work,

Shuffling through bills,

Hurrying through dinner,

Studying and drills.

Tossing in laundry,

Taking out trash,

The evening goes by

Faster than fast.

Another day’s gone

Another day’s passed.

How can we make

these moments last?

Time well spent

But never enough,

Time flies too fast

Gone with a puff.

Friday night date night,

Saturday chores,

Sunday sleep in,

Dreaming for more,

More time for them,

More time for you,

Some “Me” time for me.

What more can we do?

Let’s

Plan and promise.

Laugh and share.

Don’t miss a thing.

Always be there.

Pause and watch.

Embrace and smile.

Our lives may be long.

But we’re only here a while.

I will never forget the instant when I finally made the realization I had to leave him.

That was the instant my life changed forever.

That was the instant when I started living for myself .

For years, I worked hard to make his life the best it could be for him.

It was never about us.

It was never about me.

It was about an image he wanted,

The control he craved,

And essentially, as I know now,

The insecurities he felt about himself.

When I failed repeatedly,

Because his expectations were way out of reach,

I began to view myself as a failure.

In that instant, I was on a path to a place where

I would find worth and value in all that I did.

In that instant, I was on a path to a place where

I was smart enough and funny enough to enrich people’s lives.

I that instant, I was on a path to a place where

I was pretty enough and I would love who I was,

Despite my flaws.

In that instant, I was on a path to a place where

I would trust myself to make decisions.

I was on a path to happiness

In the instant

when I finally made the realization

I had to leave him.
