Used To Be

Used To Be

Anything that you wish to
Improve about yourself
Whether it’s your attitude
Your bank account or health

Can be changed if you only start
To look at it this way:
“I used to be like that but now
Today is a new day”

If you’d only adapt this
Real simple way of thinking
To put your habits in the past
And from yourself unlinking

And say “I used to be angry”
Or “I used to be broke”
“I used to have a weight problem”
“I used to drink or smoke”

If you would just untie yourself
From how you have defined
If you would make it in past tense
And leave it all behind

Then one day soon you will look back
To recognize and see
That things you wished to change are now
The things you used to be

      Thank you Sheila. It’s simply my life experience, but I’m always glad to hear when it can serve as advice, motivation, or inspiration for others.

    I am sure many are still in the process of untying themselves from the tangled knots they have weaved about themselves.. Many have to have patience.. for some knots are tighter than others.. But where there is a will, there is a way. 🙂 And I thank you for showing us the way Miro.
