How To Make It Count



Color your canvas with purple stars,
color the sunrise with bright orange.
Make your life count every day,
live with intention, live with purpose.
Speak your mind, without seeking approval.
Lend your voice, lend your heart.
If the question is how to ?
I would think and then say,
Open your branches and embrace everything.

Join us at Melissa's Six Word Fridays, the challenge today is " How To "

  12. i like that you used open your branches and not spread. open is a more effective verb with branches. i see that now so clearly becuz you have written it so beautifully.

  14. I love the third line, 'make your life count every day'. When we're busy and distracted that's the hardest thing to do.

  22. Sara, so true that when we are caught up with our daily life...it's hard to remember...that's why it's good to remind ourselves that we need to make it count :)

  23. "Without seeking approval" - those words are very important to remember. I think sometimes we base our actions on our perceptions of what people expect us to be.

  27. WOW! Such a beautiful and inspiring words. I think you should write a book your words are soulful and touching. ^_^

    PS: Thank you Ayala so much for stopping by and ask about me. I truly appreciate your kindness. I was very sick for while with flu, I'm still recovering slowly - also there is too many things going on at the same. And now working hard to updating my website with new collections, on time for the holiday season.

    I hope all is well with you too and your family!
    Sunshine & smiles to you always.
