Make a new start

Some days it feels as if life is getting us nowhere.

We feel stuck in a rut, tired of not achieving what we want to.

But we have the power to change this. We just have to look at things from a new angle, to see if we can do things in a different way that works better for us.

Situations that happened in the past have happened. We cannot change this, but we can change how we live our future and learn from these past events.

We should use the present as an opportunity to start things afresh, to try a new direction, to make things better for both ourselves and our loved ones.

Each moment is a new chance. Don't waste it.

I need a new shed!

I need a new shed.
The old one is shot,
But there again,
It's been through a lot!

The mice they have nested,
Shredded and scratched,
Their appetite for belongings,
Can never be matched!

The birds, on the roof,
Have landed to peck.
The felt is all gone,
My goodness, oh heck!

There's a hole in the back,
As big as a cat
Maybe one will climb in,
And sleep on the mat!

So off to the garden centre,
We must all run,
To look at new sheds,
Oh this will be fun.

Deciding and looking,
Going in and then out,
Metal or wood,
So much choice is about!

Then home we will come,
And erect our new shed
Only the mice will be sad,
Because they'll need a new bed!
