Please forgive me my tardiness in getting my blog on this week.  It has been an interesting time in Amesworld.  I have been pondering the question of what is important in life.  We only get One Life so making the most of it is something that should be at the top of our list.

Unfortunately work sometimes gets in the way.  I am sure I am not alone in this gripe but one thing I do know from experience is that we all get soooo caught up in the daily grind of work, work, eat and sleep that we forget to do something memorable with the time that is ours.

I am starting the writing Club soon and will be posting many literary challenges for you all on there but here is a LIFE CHALLENGE to get your inspiration brain cells going before we being to write.

“DO SOMETHING THIS WEEK THAT COSTS NOTHING, LOOKS BEAUTIFUL AND MAKES YOU FEEL THAT LIFE IS GOOD”

I can see all your faces with a big question mark on them.  Here are some things I mean. 

1 = Walk along the beach and look down at the shells that have washed up.

2 = Make a cake but take time with friends or family to decorate it with some amazing colours, sprinkles etc and then share it over a nice cup of tea/coffee.

3 = Sit out when it’s dark and look at the moon and spot some constellations.  Can you see ET?

4 = Write ‘I Love You’ on a post it note and place it where someone special will see it.

Are you beginning to get my meaning?

Here is a little poem I wrote with this in mind…..

we live but once

and in that time

we sadly must

earn the odd dime

this world requests

we pay our way

before bequests

to our dying day

but dreamers can

break out the fire

follow their plan

lift up from the mire

to see the sky

in glory gold

and fly in freedom

before we get old

(Rita Ames)

HAVE A GREAT VALENTINES DAY AND AN AMAZING WEEK – SENT WITH LOVE FROM AMEDWORLD!!
