In a photo, you can see and focus on the dark areas
or the light.
Learning to live life to the fullest
means being able to accept it all
That which you cannot do anything about
That which you can do something about.
Sitting and complaining and bemoaning is good
Only for the short term
Wearing out family and friends
And sapping all of your energy too.
Best to get on with it
Now, in the moment
no matter how hard
Starts are the hardest
but living well always gets lighter
once your heart leads the way.
