Following A Path

Standing at the crossroads of
Where I am at present and
Where I most urgently want
To be, with no real idea
How I will reach all my goals.

No looking backward, only
Pressing forward toward the
Victory of making dreams
Become full reality
In the life I live today.

While standing at the crossroads
I know to put more effort
Into the worthy causes
That invite my investment
Of precious time and talent.

I can achieve more than thought
If I continue trying
Without ever giving up.
Accomplishment happens when
Moving beyond the crossroads.

Standing at the crossroads is
An invitation to join
Overwhelming adventure
That leads further than ever
Creatively imagined.

My Friday was restful, which was good after such a busy week. I hope your day went well. If you have not taken time to work creatively, I encourage you to do it now. It will without doubt brighten your day and give you a sense of accomplishment.

As a prompt, use the following phrase in a poem, story, or journal entry: So much to be done and so little time to do it. This should provoke thought. If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

Thank you for taking time to read my blog. I hope you will visit often, but you might also wish to enter your email address above and subscribe to the future updates of Chronicles. If you have something you would like to share with me, please leave a comment.

Always,
Jo Ann

    Hi Jo Ann,
    TIme management is difficult for all of us regardless of our circumstances. You do so well with providing us beautiful images, creative encouragement and eloquent poetry. If you’ve ever read any of Eckhart Tolle’s work then you know that he talks about “staying in the now.” It’s all you can do, just take each moment as it unfolds and don’t worry about the rest. There are only so many hours in a day and only so many things that can be accomplished in that time frame. The world needs your wisdom and creativity so when your body tells you to rest please listen to it. There is no race to the finish line, just movement through life hopefully accomplishing the things that give us pleasure and serve others.
    Have a great Saturday!
    Laura

      Laura, I am so far behind right now. I wonder how I will catch up. I do have to rest sometimes, or my health suffers. Thank you for such a kind comment.
