What and who makes you want to dance?
Dance as if you don't care who is watching?!
Not worry about others' opinions, judgment, or envy.
BE AWESOME and AUTHENTIC.
This doesn't just apply to poets. It also applies to any writer who has been told "the rules". Rules can and will be broken in writing. What is in fashion today with certain publishers is out of fashion tomorrow. Write, write, write!!! Blaze that trail. Express your true self. Keep at it. Don't stop. There is a place for us all. Carpe Diem. There is no time like the present. Nothing ventured...you get the idea.
We keep looking and looking and looking for "the" answers. It's not necessary. You have already arrived. As you have moved forward have you gotten more clarity on life and it's journey? Instead of questioning everything, perhaps you have all the information you need.
As the iconic phrase goes "ain't nobody got time for that".
"I love to use plays on words. Brain twisters and alliteration. With the current climate I think hate is never an option and never wins for anyone." KaZ Cruse Akers
To all the young-at-heartwomen out there. You are NOT invisible. You are valuable. You have so much to offer. Don't let ANYONE tell you any differently. If they insist on doing so, they can watch as you walk out the door.
"A dear friend read this prose and thanked me for speaking for all of the women who are seen as disposable after the age of 50. Our disposability couldn't be farther from the truth." KaZ Cruse Akers
Never let the opportunity slip by to express your feelings. Say your sorry if necessary. Let the other person know they mean or meant something to you. Even if in a poem. You won't always have the chance.
It's not always easy but it's always worth it. You don't need to keep flying into the window or trying to drill through the rock. Take it one task at a time. Let it flow.
Gossip has no place in healthy relationships. It poisons everything it touches. Learning to know when to engage and when not to engage. When to share and when not to share. What is yours and what is not yours. That is wisdom.
I am passionate about PRO-AGING. Aging as well as possible - given our life circumstances - with enthusiasm, contentment, vitality and energy.
