The Written Poem:
A Living Active Poem
Existence is vibration,
and deep inside life
We find conscious meditation
A habit, a ritual, a voice of shorts
A way to interpret what our mind purports
We move forward, down the road though we don’t avow
Like a run-away train, no stopping it now
Place by place we come upon choice
This is the part where you’d better have voice
Make the decision or it will make you
Believe it now or later, guaranteed true
I speak because I exist, yup, I vibrate
With the hope that maybe you’ll want to migrate
Over here a little to see what I see
Where living active is the belief that I be
I’m not gonna push, cause I know you’ll push back
I’ll will let it all be, because I know one fact
You want more from life and you are looking about
For someone to tell you the answer in a shout
That may happen and it may not,
But here is another choice you have got
Wake up tomorrow and smile at yourself
Eat a good meal and believe in your health
Here’s to living active and smiling.
An excuse will always be there. It’s waiting, hoping that you lift your foot off the gas pedal of life, just a little bit. The moment you stop pushing forward, that excuse is waiting to pull you backward. Breathe deep, push forward.
“Talent might take you so far, but if you don’t put in the work, talent will fail you eventually.”
I woke up at 5:20 AM Eastern time. I got on a plane, and then another one, and now I’m home (3:00 PM Pacific Standard time). I could go to bed, I could lie down, I could rest up for the long week ahead…but here’s the thing, I know that is the easy way out…and that way will always be there. I choose defiance, I choose betterment, and I expect more from myself. It’s a choice each day, and I have great news for you…The choice is, and always has been yours…
Time to get outside and live active!
A few quotes from the video if you need an extra push 😉
The easy way out will always be there…
Luck is last dying wish of those who want to believe that winning can happen by accident.
Sweat, on the other hand, is for those who know it’s a choice.
Sunday means two things for sure… 1. I will write 2. the sun will set
This Sunday I only have a few words, but they mean the world to me. I’d like to ask you what means the world to you…
I love my mind and body because they allow me to move, play, grow, learn, and understand.
I love my family because they believe in me, push me, and want happiness for me.
I love life because it is a non-stop challenge and I need that.
What do you love?
This speech moved me deeply. There were three reasons why.
1. He entertained me
2. He educated me
3. He converted me (I believed him)
So, I’d like to leave you with this…Who is your hero?
1. Get some tunes rolling
2. Get in front of a mirror and jig to the tunes (min. 15 seconds)
3. Power swig some cool orange juice….preferably plus pulp
4. Feel the bass (of music and your heart)
5. Realize that YOU control your future
