note to self

i woke up thinking, i am free at last! to follow my bliss, play by my rules, be my own boss. i don't have to wake up so freakin' early to drive a lengthy commute and work long, tedious days with certain lazy co-workers who don't care a hoot about me---ANYMORE. AND that feels oh so GOOD! i share this poem to remind me what i need to do now, from this day forward. this is your hour this is your hour--creep upon it! summon your power, leap upon it! grasp it, clasp it, hold it tight! strike it, spike it, with full might! if you take too long to ponder, opportunity may wander. yesterday's a bag of sorrow; no man ever finds tomorrow. hesitation is a mire-- climb out, climb up, climb on higher! fumble, stumble, risk a tumble, make a start, however humble! do your best and do it now! pluck and grit will find out how. persevere, although you tire-- while a spark is left, there's fire. distrust doubt; doubt is a liar. even if all mankind jeer you, you can force the world to cheer you. --herbert kaufman
