Success

SUccessful

Success is only a milestone. It’s an indicator a goal is accomplished. So, always remain teachable and open to learn because LIFE is a journey of endless possibilities. When you think you have arrived, then, you’ve limited your possibilities of accomplishing more.

Welcome to the Family Reunion

Family

COME ON Y’ALL TO GRANDDAD AND GRANDMA’S HOUSE.
WE’RE HAVING A FAMILY REUNION.
AUNTIE SALLY AND UNCLE GEORGE WILL BE THERE.
SO BRING SOME POTATO SALAD AND CORNBREAD.
I SURE HOPE AUNTIE SUSIE COOKED THOSE COLLARD GREENS TOO.
I’LL BE HAPPY IF GRANDMA BAKED HER TURKEY AND PEACH COBBLER.
I WONDER WOULD MY AUNT CAROL BAKE MY FAVORITE CAKE AND
UNCLE DAVE BARBEQUE HIS BEEF RIBS?
I KNOW COUSIN PEANUT WILL BE THERE.
I SURE HOPE HE DOES NOT SHOW OUT THIS TIME.
YES, THERE WILL BE DANCING AND DOING THE BUS STOP.
THERE WE’LL FORGET ALL ABOUT OUR CARES.
NO WORRIES, NO PROBLEMS, JUST KICKING BACK
AND HAVING SOME FUN.

Contemplation

awoman

If I stand here in contemplation,

I’ll never get to where I’m going.

I could plan and never fail

because my plans are never a threat

for success nor failure.

My goals would remain only goals

because they are always something

to look forward to becoming.

I wculd find myself in complacency

if I find myself only contemplating.

Why bother having thoughts, ideas

or plans if my intentions

never follow through?

Why have dreams or want more

if I can never see myself achieving

what I desire?

At times it seems easier taking the path of

least resistance.

If I go that route I could settle for contentment.

But, then I’m like the lame man from birth

who sat at the gate called Beautiful

begging.

But, there are other alternatives,

I could do as he and move beyond

the place of “do nothing”

and “do something”

to exceed the expectation

of any limitations.

So, contemplation,

I’m not only contemplating

on leaving you behind.

I’m already gone.
