December 31.2014 – Time Of Your Life by Linda Ellis

Hear the Warm and Fuzzy here!

Time of Your Life

Do you reflect upon the years gone by

as you prepare for yet one more,

with promises and resolutions

that you have made before?

Do memories of people and places

once as sharp as any knife

now blend in bits and pieces

in a kaleidoscope of life?

Do you squander precious minutes

seeking reasons why you’re here,

contemplating your life’s purpose

year after passing year?

Persuade yourself to understand,

it matters not the reason.

Your purpose is to seize the life

in every passing season!

Learn to see things differently.

Let your thoughts and actions change.

Allow your views of past and present

to slowly rearrange.

Let your spirit start anew;

become focused and aware

of the moments and the blessings

that surround you everywhere!

Do not permit past memories:

the where…the who…the how

to become more important

than the ones you’re making now.

Live life in person;

inhabit every day.

You may not like where you are now,

but you’re there anyway!

A lifetime is a puzzle,

every failure, each success

adds another jagged piece

to fit together with the rest.

To finish the picture

and view the masterpiece whole,

fill the time of your life

with your heart and your soul.

Acquaint yourself with your feelings

and heighten your senses.

Experience living.

Put down your defenses.

You don’t have to know why

you are you, and I’m me.

Believe it is what it is

and it’s how it should be.

You did not choose your date of birth,

nor do you know your last,

so live this gift that is your present,

before it becomes your past.
