So many

changes are happening around me

and when I make a move so many other people are making it too.

To see a face that is so formal who is on a new journey like I am is so thrilling and good.

I know that there  will be bumps and set backs to come but to go on no matter how hard they push back will not set me back for I know.

Through it all I will see the light at the end of this path for I know this journey will be different than all the ones I have taken before.

I can see that this outcome will be more than I could have imagined  at the end of the day, week, month and  year.

For I trust and believe all things are possible if I just believe and trust that these good things that have happen will not stop now but will continue even when my doubt becomes too strong.

I don’t

 Know if I’m ready for this next step in my life.

But it’s about to happen and the butterflies inside me are so excited and nervous all at the same time.

That I wonder what will happen or become of me.

The time for the day is slowly but approaching and I still have so many questions.

Like where will I go and what time and is this going to be too hard.

Is it going to be better than the experience I am dealing with right now.

And how long before this all I will be doing.

I guess right now I will never know until they get back to me but the count down has started.

There is

 Always two ways to go and the possibility that you could pick the right one is 50/50.

But today you can relax for you know which path to take on this run.

And maybe when the time comes to choose the path that will lead you to new things.

You will be ready to make the right decision and have that feeling inside that you did the right thing.

You never seem to know when that path will come up so it’s best to know what you want and don’t want in your life so that the red flags are seen sooner rather than later.

Why do

I worry so much when so much is out of my control.

I’m wasting time and energy on something that won’t shine any light on what’s really going on in my life.

Calm is everything right now and I know that

 But still I let myself to get so worked up amour the things that won’t matter a minute from now.

So do I keep saying why or do I just let if all go.

And just keep moving on as my goal to get it all done must be stronger than my urge to Argue .

I know

 It’s late but I just have to say what’s been on my mind.

When will they open their eyes, and will they do will it be like a new born who is adjusting to the new world it is seeming for the first time.

Or will they try to pay it cool and acted as if they knew what was going on in the first place.

Nothing is going right and yet everyone is expecting we will some how turn a corner and everything will be fixed and better.

But so much happening all around as things that need to be updated are crashing .

When we need them the most and the time to get it done is gonna to be a challenge but I for one is ready for a fight.

You always

 Have my back

Together we are able to figure it out.

I know no matter what they say you are doing your best.

I don’t expect much and so how you give so much more every time.

I feel others don’t want to admit sometimes your way work.

They just want to put the blame on someone else.

You are someone I look up too and I hope to make something more of myself.

You give your all and you realize that those who choose to pretend will get no where in the end.

It’s the

Last day of the year

And I know most of it will be spent doing stuff I rather not do.

But I know I will get through it and enjoy the little bit of time I have left.

The cold is all around and everyone either trying not to get sick or sick.

Hopefully as we all gather together tonight we will look back and know we had some good times together.

And even though the storms there always was a rainbow waiting for us.

This day maybe be the last of one year but tomorrow will be the beginning of another and we will truly enjoy it.

For there will be ups and downs but in the end it will always be worth it.

It was

Christmas Eve and the sun was shining through the windows as the day started off on a good note.

Being warm and cold was just the way the weather was going.

But the day was becoming so long and tiring that no one noticed as the clear sky turned gray and dark.

The lights from the tree couldn’t shine bright enough to make this darkness go away.

On such a lovely eve no one would have thought it would become so dark and long.

We are

 to band together and work through this difficult time as a team.

But instead it feels like we are turning against each other and the end result just won’t ever be good.

To not think about it as the day slowly comes to a end, and I know that at this moment nothing is my concern.

I know how to slowly make the system work for me and right now I just want to take my time and make sure these last rounds of trouble much be worked through today as a band of not just people but a family that has to look out for each other.

But also take responsibility when we do something wrong that could affect not just ourselves but the whole team.
