If your goal is to reach for the moon,

You will be on your way very soon.

Unknown variables can stand in the way,

However don’t let them ruin your day.

Getting from point A to point Z,

Is not a bowl of cherries and can be quite scary.

Deal with the wrath.

Then, light up the path,

By grabbing all the stars along the journey,

Without second guessing if you have too many.

When in doubt and deep in contemplation,

Remember, results and goals are achieved with determination.


-D.L. Carroll

Determination can stay with us and get us on our way. The secret is to take that first step in the right direction. We should be determined to do our best without regrets. Many goals are out there for us to achieve, determine them.
