Treasure Island

Elena Plotkin


Step Back


Step Back
Take a breath
Let the world reveal itself.

It’s not exactly what you thought.
It’s not exactly how you planned.
It’s too hard to deal with or understand.

It’s not your style.
It’s not a good fit.
It makes you want to give up and quit.

Step back
Take a breath
Let the world reveal itself.

Rethink
Replan
Take time to understand.

Change your style.
Make it fit.
Don’t give up and quit.

Don't ever give up and quit! ! !

    Don't be in a hurry, take a little time to observe and take things in.
    That is the problem with most of us we always seem to be in a hurry.
    Sit back take it easy and then go forward with great expectancy ti see
    what is up ahead. An inspiring write. (Report) Reply
