Nothing Is Ever Lost – The Affirmation Spot for Wednesday December 12, 2007


raybaseball75.jpg Today’s affirmation is: 

“Today I am bringing the power of my past to the aid of my present.”

Nothing important is ever lost period. It may be out of sight and out of mind, but every person, thing, thought, or event that you have ever encountered continues to play a role in the thread that is your life.

I wrote the following poem back in 1993 at a time when I was wondering whether I had lost something of the magic of my childhood. As I wrote the poem, I realized that the power of that time was still right here within me. I only needed to reach out and touch it.

There is some time, some place, some person in your past that continues to have a tremendous influence on who you are and who you are becoming. I hope this poem will encourage you to reach out and touch the power that lives there for you.

“The Baseball Glove”

Worries gone from my mind
and sunshine up above;
clinging to my giant hand
my childhood baseball glove.

Its color is long-faded.
The pocket’s past worn out.
It takes me back to a time
before my self-styled doubt.

Back to days of make-believe
when I had not a care.
All day games of whiffle ball
and friendships that I shared.

As I think of long ago
and look, now, at this mitt
I’m caught up with the notion:
perhaps, it might still fit.

Be peaceful Be prosperous
