A New Day... A New Attitude

A new day is here, and we know not what it will bring, but what we should bring to this new day is a new attitude; yesterday is gone and we should forget about negative things that happened, except what we have learned from it. "If you lose, don't lose the lesson"

I try to take on the brand new day with a clean, crisp attitude, learn from yesterday's mistakes, and make every moment count, as well as trying harder every day to do better. The day is wasted if you haven't learned something new...or smiled.

Speaking from a writer's point of view, my work is out there, all around me, each and every moment; sometimes I have to stop everything to jot down thoughts inspired by something in that day. Sometimes, the thoughts come in the middle of the night, and I have learned to keep a notepad and pencil next to my bed.

Lately, I have been inspired to write poetry. It seems I haven't had the chance to continue to do that since I was so busy with working on my children's book, and a non-fiction. But, I disciplined myself to grab a notepad; within ten minutes I have anywhere from 5 to 10 stanzas down on paper. It's done. It's written. It felt good to now 'see' it, and maybe share it with someone soon.

To date, I have over 2000 poems. Maybe I will be inspired to write a book of poetry; my first book of poetry was published in 1991..... "And So... My Thoughts." What inspires you? See what this new day brings for you, besides that "new attitude."
