“Perseverance?”

 I know there are times when you may feel that life just isn’t going your way. This is when your mettle really gets tested. Whether it is being tested by God, or some other entity, is not for me to say. Maybe it is your own guilt and dissatisfaction that builds your load. It may even get to the point when you decide it is all too much to bear. Do you give in to your feelings of self doubt and loathing, or do you stand up to your own ego and push your self to do better, to be better. Times like this is when you/we really find out what you/we are made of. There should never be a time in ones life when they decide to throw in the towel. I am sure there are several reasons you should think about what you are actually willing to throw in. 1. There is always new adventures, new fascinations right around the corner. 2. In giving up on you, you are actually telling the people around you (family, friends) that you are giving up on them as well. 3. Being tested isn’t the obstacle, it is how you handle the test that counts. 4. The strength you need to believe in yourself is usually just a phone call away. A conversation with the right friend can do wonders.
5. The praise you will not only receive, but justifiably earn, is always an ego booster.
Perseverance, not always an easy road to trek. Very much worth the final reward.

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
