We’re excited to announce a new partnership with Holly DressON NOT Holly DressOFF, author of #30DifferentMicrophonesIn30days, as well as the founder of the #PauseReflectMoveForward movement, who will be bringing us “Poetry with a Purpose Fridays.”
Today, we are happy to bring you the first poem in the series, entitled “supercalifragilisticexpialidoc
Life in a word is supercalifragilisticexpialidoc
As people we tend to complicate it
With overthinking and feelings of lack
Can lead to a heart attack
Life is meant for growth
People don’t come with a remote
We cannot fast forward
We cannot rewind
We have to get out of our minds
We tend to think of the wrong
Not the good
Because it is easier
The easy way isn’t always the right way
To be only you which is who you are supposed to be
Maybe you heard this word in a movie
It actually exists
And so do you
No matter what it is you are going through
And to go live
Don’t disappoint yourSELF
So, what word of encouragement means something special to you? Let us know, and you might be featured in a future post!
