There is no secret
No perfect way to handle
All the things life gives –
It is only now, living
Through each moment, we are, have.
Alarm bells clanging,
Favorite songs playing, blare,
Everything is there
To keep us wanting, needing –
Engaged in doing, being.
We are the present
Happening over, in time,
Gifts to share fairly and kind
Leaving no regrets behind.
Love is our reason
Even when we cannot rhyme
In all the doing
Filling each second of life –
Understanding the plot line.

Further work with these elements:
I wrote ten pages in my journal today. This tanka is an excerpt. I picked a subject to photograph and include, then used Adobe Express to complete the design.

This picture is a small victory. I cut, colored, and styled my hair myself. This is a new accomplishment.
I used to cut Alex and Mom’s hair years ago but never ventured to do mine.
I want to make this last year of my fifties one where I put several practices in place and follow through with devotion and discipline.
So far, so good; incremental changes lead to confidence, and confidence is something I need to grow.
I was a day late getting the hair done, but I had to decide and gather the nerve to do my cut. I was not sure I could do it. I also had to ascertain whether the color was what I wanted.
Many other practices have to do with health, creativity, and completing things I have begun and intend to start.
If you are interested in my progress, check back.
Blessings to each of you. May you achieve your hopes and dreams.
Never Give Up!
