Leaves flying

It’s enough!

Enough! I shout out,

Screaming into the wind

I feel like a leaf letting go.

Set free!

Letting Go

Every day has its challenges.
All life has ups and downs.
 Many a day problems will come,
And turn smiles into frowns.
Focusing on what should have been,
And complaining negatively,
Is not going to change the present,
Or make “if only” come to be.
Therefore when upsets come,
It’s best to just smile and say,
“This isn’t what I hoped would happen,
But I’ll make the best of it anyway”
