When a friend calls to me from the road And slows his horse to a meaning walk, I don’t stand still and look around On all the hills I haven’t hoed, And shout from where I am, What is it? No, not as there is a time to talk. I thrust my hoe in the mellow ground, Blade-end up and five feet tall, And plod: I go up to the stone wall For a friendly visit.
Hello Clovers! I hope this week starts on a good note for you..
What does this mean to you?
You must have habits or some part of your attitude that probably isn’t great. Sometimes we are often the ones holding ourselves back from achieving something. Yes, sometimes the toxic person is you and not anyone else. In other words you could be the cause of all your problems
You need to let go of some of these things. It’s almost like baggage weighing you down or perhaps think of it as a pile of rocks tied to a balloon. There is no way the balloon will float. If you want it to raise higher, you need to remove the rocks attached. Let it go!
Every day you must unlearn the ways that hold you back. You must rid yourself of negativity, so you can learn to fly.”
Time flies and memories fade. People change and new friendships are made. Only the true remain forever at our side. Eventually the disappointment and pain will subside.
It is all about the journey and what has yet to come. Life is what you make of it; you are what you’ve become. Life is too short to hold onto regrets. Forgiveness is key even though you may never forget.
Cherish the good and remove the bad. Some people don’t realize till it’s gone what they’ve had. Moving on is a way of life. There will always be obstacles, pain, and strife.
You must believe that you are strong enough to fight. You have to believe in yourself to do what is right. Always do for YOU no matter what you do, Because in the end the only one who has your back is you.
Never be afraid to take a stand, And always be willing to lend a helping hand. A little bit goes a long way. All it takes is a smile to brighten someone’s day.
Your chance to live is now, so what are you waiting for? The world is yours for the taking and so much more. Endless possibilities are forever at your disposal. The chance to live another day is life’s golden proposal.
Never let anyone tear you down, And never let anyone steal your shine and make you frown. So will you sit in the shadows and let darkness win again? Or will you rise up and make the light your friend?
Here is your chance, so what will you do? You’ve got this because I believe in you!
A pen--to register; a key-- That winds through secret wards Are well assigned to Memory By allegoric Bards.
As aptly, also, might be given A Pencil to her hand; That, softening objects, sometimes even Outstrips the heart's demand; That smooths foregone distress, the lines Of lingering care subdues, Long-vanished happiness refines, And clothes in brighter hues;
Yet, like a tool of Fancy, works Those Spectres to dilate That startle Conscience, as she lurks Within her lonely seat. Oh! that our lives, which flee so fast, In purity were such, That not an image of the past Should fear that pencil's touch!
Retirement then might hourly look Upon a soothing scene, Age steal to his allotted nook Contented and serene;
With heart as calm as lakes that sleep, In frosty moonlight glistening; Or mountain rivers, where they creep Along a channel smooth and deep, To their own far-off murmurs listening.
You may see me struggle, but you won't see me fall. Regardless if I'm weak or not, I'm going to stand tall. Everyone says life is easy, but truly living it is not. Times get hard, people struggle and constantly get put on the spot. I'm going to wear the biggest smile, even though I want to cry. I'm going to fight to live, even though I'm destined to die. And even though it's hard and I may struggle through it all, you may see me struggle... but you will NEVER see me fall.
The first half of the year is almost over and I would like you to assess your progress so far. Are you moving as planned?
If yes, I am so excited for you. Keep up with the good work and effort. Do not get caught up in your feelings though, you’re doing good but that doesn’t mean there is no room for improvement. Keep going at this pace too and you may as well achieve all your goals before the year ends. Keep moving forward
If no, do not let it get you down. You may feel bad at the moment but let it motivate you to do better. Check yourself, why haven’t you accomplished as much a you’d like? Find your faults and find out the problems. List them out and provide a reasonable solution to it all.
Having perseverance is all about being able to bounce back and keep moving forward.
No matter what happens or what tries to stop you, don’t give up. Keep your mind focused on the goal. Bounce back. Keep moving forward. See you all at the top
