motivational poem

RISE UP

It takes a lot of courage
to smile through your tears,
and from a breaking heart.
But that’s what you’ll need
to rise up out of the ashes,
a minute to crawl out
of your sadness
 and make agreement
with yourself,
that no matter how bad
it looks right now,
this moment
does not define you.

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22 niv

present moment

The present moment is more alive than the past.

The present moment, as small and brief
as it may seem…
a blink of an eye,
a flap of a butterfly’s wing,
is so much bigger than our biggest fears,
and more real than
every doubt we’ve ever entertained…

 It’s more alive than our past can ever be,
and the only place
full of the empty spaces
where the only limit is our imagination.
