Setting Your Life’s Sails To Stay On Course

Life is like sailing in a gusty storm,
The winds are unsteady sometimes changing direction, therefore,

If you are to maintain your direction,
You must constantly be alert to make corrections!

The shifting ‘winds’ of life can be unsteady,
Gusts come along so you must always be ready!

There’s always something changing to affect your life,
You simply must adapt and adjust to keep your personal ‘sailboat’ upright!

Day by day be alert to adopt new ways to deal with change,
You’ll gradually discover that you can go beyond your self-limiting range!

Day by day observe and study the effects of the changing winds on your life,
Do your best to make the changes you’ll need to keep your “boat” upright!

Life is like sailing in a gusty storm,
You’ll occasionally need to reset your sails and adjust your rudder
to keep yourself on course!

This poem is good. Can I repost it in our Senior Citizen Newsletter? How do I get permission, if needed?
