Rebirth of Jules #PoetryCollaboration

Hello! Welcome to January's Poetry Collaboration!! Every month, a group of bloggers turn into poets (or in some cases let their poetic sides shine), and write poems based on a chosen theme. This month's theme is Rebirth. It seems like such a fitting theme, for the beginning of a new year.

I hope you enjoy what I have prepared for you, and don't forget to check out the rest of this month's poetry. The links to those poems will be at the bottom of my post.

Poem 1 (Rebirth):

Rosy skies at dawn, singling a new day beginning.
Endless possibilities.
Bringing the present into the future.
Initiating changes and advancements.
Rising to your potential.
Taking advantage of presented opportunities.
Hoping for a better tomorrow, with the changes made today.

Poem 2 (Your Story):

A new year lends to new opportunities and endless possibilities.
It is what you make of it.
Sometimes fate takes over, and guides your path.
Yet, so much is left up to you to shape, with your choices.
Sometimes those choices lead to good things,
and other times not so good things.
Lessons learned, experiences had, life lived.
Every new year, gives you the opportunity to grow.
To change and become better.
To be the person you have always wanted to be, 
or at least more like that person.
Each year a ring on your life's tree,
telling part of your story.
It is up to you to write your story.
Make it the epic adventure you want it to be.
Or maybe you would rather a suspenseful tale.

Or possibly you are more of a romance lover.
Either way, it is your year, your life, your story.
Write it. Create it. Live it.
Take advantage of the new year's rebirth of you.
Roll with the punches fate deals out,
and make your story worth telling.

Poem 3 (Rebirth of Jules):

It is a new year, a new chapter to my story.
I have a blank chapter in front of me, 
and a fresh ink pen to add to my story.
It is up to me to write the best chapter possible.
I write it with my choices I make.
I write it with the opportunities I seize.
I write it with the risks I take.
I write it with the mistakes I make.
I write it with the lessons I learn.
I write it with the adventures I enjoy.
I write it with the deed I do.
I write it with the words I speak.
I write it with my soul and heart.
It is my chapter, and only I can write it.
Each year, I am gifted a new chapter.
The last chapter no longer matters.
The past is done. 
The future is now.
It is mine to write.
It is mine to live.
Every new year brings my rebirth.
My chance to be a better me.
My chance to have a better story.
It is my book, and I am the author.

Here are the links to the other poems, featuring the January theme of Rebirth. I will meet you there, right after I refill my coffee cup!!

  1. Your positive outlook shows through. I have to admit that the last line of the last poem is my favorite.

  2. I absolutely love these! My favorite is the imagery of the rings on the tree!

  3. As always I struggle to write one and your excel with several. I really like the first one. Great job.

Rainbow Colored Glasses #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to March's Blog with Friends Round-up. Each month, a group of bloggers chooses a topic, and then creates blog posts based on that theme. The posts can include anything, from poetry and recipes, to short stories and informative essays, and often crafts or DIY projects. This month's chosen theme is rainbows.

I decided to do a round-up of awesome rainbow finds, that are reasonably priced, and an easy way for your to add more rainbows into your life. I personally love rainbows, and actually enjoy adding them into my life whenever possible. I especially like adding them into Gigi's wardrobe. My inspiration for the title of this post, were a pair of glasses I bought her. Rose colored glasses are cool, but rainbow colored is such a better view! Unless of course you love black, and then I am sorry.

I will be posting links to where you can find the items to buy. However, I encourage you to shop around, and see if you are able to find any better deals. I also want you to know,…

Weather Outside is Frightful #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to February's Blog With Friends round-up!! I have had so much fun joining in, that I decided to tag along for February as well. In case you do not know how it works... A group of bloggers chooses a theme for the month, and then we all create unique posts, based on the same theme. Then we link up together, and provide y'all with a round-up!! The posts can contain anything... Recipes, poetry, short stories, a crafting how to, a DIY how to, and everything in between!! Each month is unique and fun!!

Our theme for February is Winter Activities!! You may be thinking... You are in California, what could you possibly have to contribute about winter activities!? Well, you would be right. LOL. However, I have not lived here my entire life. Plus, I have the unique "joy" of being sensitive to colder temperatures. So, I do have some ideas I want to share, for winter activities that can be done inside, when the weather outside is just too frightful (or in my case too chilly…

Boredom, Boredom Go AWAY! #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to July's Blog with Friends Round-up!! Each month, a group of bloggers join Karen from Baking in a Tornado, and pick a theme for the month. Then each blogger creates a post, based on that theme. Posts can include anything the blogger wants. You may find poetry, recipes, short stories, DIY projects, crafts, informative posts, and anything else a blogger may choose. It is just a fun way, for us to all give our own take on a given theme.

This month's theme is Anti-Boredom Month. Did you know that July is National Anti-Boredom Month? I did not know this, until we were researching themes for our BWF posts. I think it is an excellent idea for Summer. I know when I was growing up, the most boredom I encountered, was usually in the Summer. The rest of the year, I would be so busy with school and activities, I did not have time to be bored. Then Summer would hit, and after the excitement wore off, the boredom would come visit regularly. 

I decided to compile a lists of activities…
