My New Surroundings

by Shawnell Banks
(Pittsburgh, PA)

When I sit and think of what's around me it makes me aware that change is possible. Living in a big city, and never living in a house before, this change has been lingering in my head for years. I have finally did it. The last time I made a change, I wasn't ready. Looking around me now is showing that I have embraced this change and want to make the best out of it. Sometimes, things move slow for a reason, just like Rome was not built in a day. Poems, writing, and music are all ways of creating. With that new Bass Guitar that I just purchased, I'm ready, willing and able to make anything happen. There is so much work to be done. It may get rough during these times, but I am still going to smile.

Motivation is one of the best things that I have to offer. Everything is coming into place with the new business. The customer's will come. Patience is what helps me through these transition periods. Silence is when I do my best work and focus. Too many distractions in a home office is doomed to fail. Just a few more touches, and my work bench and it is off to the races. When I was in New York, this business took five years to build a steady customers, but in this small city the extra skill's will bring me over the top.
