Life Is Too Short – A Poem For Strength

This poem really speaks to me and what I hope to overcome, yet work on in life. “You have the strength to prosper.” Stay bless! 💜

Kimberley Chan

I just wanted to remind everyone that nothing you ever try will be lost.

After going through a year where everything turned it’s tables on me, I kept asking myself “why me?” and at times felt like the most useless human being on the planet.

After reading my blog, a gentlemen named Alex sent me the following poem, telling me that the blog had inspired him to write it. I want to share it with you all and hope that if you ever have to go through a messy path down the road, you’ll remember that you are stronger than you think you are.

Thank you Alex!

Life is too short
Everyone has their ups and downs
But how you come out of them makes you the person you are
You have the strength to prosper

Move Out of Your Own Way

Today’s post is inspired from a fellow blogger, Marlton Trainer.  You can click on the link to visit her blog which will motivate and inspire you on your health and fitness goals.

It’s something I used to dread as I would make excuses and procrastinate when it came to my health. It had took a drastic toll which left me with anxiety/depression issues, high blood pressure, and then later developed GERD. (Gastroesophageal reflux disease)

Wallowing in my own distress, my health went downhill. For my severe depression, I had to bite the bullet and see a counselor a couple years ago. It took me back to high school when I felt so meek to voiced out what is going on with me- emotionally and mentally. It actually helped me, not much then because I didn’t cooperated, but now it has. I find ways to help my condition since I am no longer seeing the counselor.

For everything else, I am exercising more, and more conscious about what I eat.

I also stood in my own way. From health-wise to writing/blogging to anything else I set my eyes on, I allow myself to fall back. Allowing roadblocks in my path, oftentimes I am afraid to move forward. I would try so hard just to get nowhere. Now, I am moving my feet while pushing the roadblocks out of the way. I don’t know what is down the road, but I will at least make the effort to see what is up ahead.

See, when you stand in your OWN path, you can block your blessings to move forward in a healthy, positive manner.  As Joan (Marlton Trainer) clearly put, “Dont be an obstacle in your own path.”
