basic steps

March 1, 2010

The joy of living
Finding a way that makes sense
Has been my life goal
There is no easy answer
No formula or quick fix
Just asking the real questions
Honestly seeking
There is a rhythm of joy
Those who have that joy have trained
I have learned the basic steps
I practice each day
I’ve learned through failure
The pain has not been all bad
Looking back I see
Having mentors helps
Looking back I’ve had the best
Inspired examples
These mentors were not perfect
But gave authentic guidance
