18 Nov


A healthy exercise is to
Look back upon your day
At all the things you did and then
With all your vigor say:

“This one thing’s the highlight of
My last twenty-four hours
It reflects what I can do
When I use all my powers

My concentration, focus and
My courage and resolve
This one highlight is another
Step to help evolve

Into something stronger, faster
Wiser, more aware
It shows that I am trying hard
It shows that I do care”

I challenge you to do it now
Look back on yesterday
Was there one bright, shining spot
Or was it all just grey?

Did you make an effort to
Illuminate one thing?
Or did you let the ball blow by
Without taking a swing?

I challenge you to make damn sure
That when the day is done
And you go search for your highlight
That you have more than one

I challenge you to have your pick
From several different cases
Where you overcame your fear
Or displayed your good graces

Do not dwell on dark, low points
It’s best to let those go
And instead please focus on
Points that emit a glow
