Boxes

Our shapes are soft.
Our edges round.
The boxes will morph,
and keep us bound.

They will push us.
They shut us in.
Don’t put us in a box,
don’t let them win.

We wear boxes everyday.
We shield our hearts.
From the pain we dread,
emerging in tomorrow’s dark.

A false hope.
The box is a curse.
Stealing our joys,
it preys upon our mirth.

Throw away the boxes.
Be just who you are.
Let not it stop you,
from following your own star.

~Mark Schutter ©2015

A short simple poem about how we so often allow others, the world and the culture to define who we are and what we do.  Thus, the boxes we use to insulate and define ourselves based on someone else’s terms.  We must believe in who we were created to be and follow that destiny.

Chasing Passions!

Spent some time today chasing one or two of my passions.  This a work in progress from the art table today. A 24×18 inch watercolor painting of a horse head that I started.

Not a bad start considering this is the first time I’ve picked up a brush in a couple of months. Still some work to do, but…

So, what are your passions? And will you give yourself permission and commit to pursuing them in the upcoming new year? 

Freedom Rolling

Freedom RollsThere is a freedom when the tires are rolling over dirt and the only sound you hear is the wind in your ears. ~M

If I can bicycle, I bicycle. ~David Attenborough

I have always struggled to achieve excellence. One thing that cycling has taught me is that if you can achieve something without a struggle it’s not going to be satisfying. ~Greg LeMond

Cycling can be lonely, but in a good way. It gives you a moment to breathe and think, and get away from what you’re working on. ~David Byrne

 If biking is your passion, set aside time to enjoy a good ride. ~Patrick Dempsey

What is your passion and what sets you free?

 

Colors of Love

Colors of LoveDo you live with a passion allowing the colors of your life to shine outward, touching and impacting others?  How different would this world be if we all lived from our deepest and truest essence of what we were created and intended to be.  I encourage you to take the time to listen to your heart! Just Believe! ~M
