The Poem By Kristin Armstrong

So we've come to the end of my analysis of this poem and what I've learned from it.

I hope along this short journey that you have got some new insights, some new thoughts, some new perspectives, and maybe this has helped you change your mindset just a little bit.

But before we finish out this poem I wanted to give it to you in its entirety one time so you have it just in case you want to put it up in your office or maybe carry it around with you like I do to remind myself of these things from time to time.

So here it is...

"Do the things you used to talk about doing but never did. Know when to let go and when to hold on tight. Stop rushing. Don't be intimidated to say it like it is. Stop apologizing all the time. Learn to say No, so your Yes has some oomph. Spend time with the friends who lift you up, and cut loose the ones who bring you down. Stop giving your power away. Be more concerned with being interested than being interesting. Be old enough to appreciate your freedom, and young enough to enjoy it. Finally, know who you are."   - Kristen Armstrong

I hope in some small way that as I have taken the time to break this down and share my thoughts with you about this poem by Kristen that it has provided some value to you.

I hope that while I have been giving you my thoughts on this poem that you too have been pondering these lines and have been able to formulate some of your own thoughts about this poem.

I think a lot of times in life we read something and it just stops there.

But honestly what is the point of reading if you don't stop and think and ponder about what you've read?

Why would you just let it be words on a page?

If you're going to take the time to read something then stop and think about it and ponder on it and see what you can take from what you read and make your own life better.

My hope my friends is that you will do exactly that with this poem and the posts that have come before it on my site and honestly for anything you read going forward.

Also to hopefully make it a little bit easier for you guys to keep this poem with you I'm going to include a picture of this poem as it hangs on my desk so that you can just copy and paste this to your phone or your own computer and you can have it with you like I do.
