Poetry For Motivation On A Monday

April 15, 2019




We live and we learn, 

As the fire within us continues to burn, 

I find it hard to see, 

The person I have lost is me, 

I smile through the pain, 

It makes the daily battle insane, 

I write my story on the page, 

A life without pain? It has been an age, 

To play safe doesn't keep me secure anymore, 

The world I really wanted to explore, 

I was confide to the four walls around me, 

I am trying to branch out into the world again you see, 

Work can always be the main focus but health is stopping me, 

I need to live a little more for me, 

As the time passes and the clock ticks on, 

I blink and another year has gone, 

The pain keeps going strong, 

It is daunting to the see a road so long, 

With no end in sight, 

It can be hard to fight, 

The sickness that chains you down, 

Turning your smile into a frown, 

Never one to speak about the pain so much anymore, 

Just trying NOT to fall through the floor, 

Rewriting a story that wasn't supposed to be your own, 

Looking back at how you have grown, 

Is often amazing but also sad, 

Mourning the life you once had, 

So lucky to see, 

I can still do as much you see, 

The people I meet, 

The people I greet, 

Add sparkle and shine, 

Helps us to feel fine, 

We realise that we have no choice but to fight on, 

How precious life is - it is soon gone, 

We manage as best as we can, 

Not always our own number one fan, 

We know there is a black hole,

We fight to keep our role, 

Pushing ourselves day after day, 

Exhausted in everyway

I have so much to say, 

I am leaving it hear for today, 

As tears flow

I don't want to lose my glow, 

For the love that is left to give, 

Myself I must learn to forgive, 

The fight gets harder day after day, 

Somehow coping with it all in some way.

Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN. 

Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
