Until death, it is all life

Until death, it is all life

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra

And it’s not always going to be plain sailing,
There is going to be stormy seas
Rough currents
And high rocks to navigate through

We may get a few calm seas and clear skies

But life is a mixture of all the above.

Facing the tough currents, stormy seas and rocky patches mean your living and you may think that they are bad things, but as we sail through life, they are the things that improve your sailing skills, not the calm seas.

Back on your way

When you fall
Dust it off and get
Back on your way
Down on the floor is not
Where you want to stay

What does life have in store
For us we don’t know
Anything can happen
On both sides of the door

Don’t be afraid to explore
New things in life
We dont get an encore
Lifes to short to ignore
What our guts tell us to do

Yeah maybe we’ll fall
Maybe we’ll stall
And life throws in a curveball
But when we fall we have to
Dust it off and get back on our way

Do not stumble on something behind you

Seneca

On this road we call life, we’re supposed to be heading forwards into the misty unknown

Yet we always end up falling backwards

Overstuff, we passed miles back,

Over the past.

Something that has happened and we have absolutely no control over.
Yet it’s like we’re walking in circles always returning to the same nightmare
When the exit is just straight ahead.

Let it go, Move forward

After all, you don’t want to still be carrying a nightmare when you arrive at another one

Do not stumble on something behind you

Seneca

On this road we call life, we’re supposed to be heading forwards into the misty unknown

Yet we always end up falling backwards

Overstuff, we passed miles back,

Over the past.

Something that has happened and we have absolutely no control over.
Yet it’s like we’re walking in circles always returning to the same nightmare
When the exit is just straight ahead.

Let it go, Move forward

After all, you don’t want to still be carrying a nightmare when you arrive at another one

Seneca

On this road we call life, we’re supposed to be heading forwards into the misty unknown

Yet we always end up falling backwards

Overstuff, we passed miles back,

Over the past.

Something that has happened and we have absolutely no control over.
Yet it’s like we’re walking in circles always returning to the same nightmare
When the exit is just straight ahead.

Let it go, Move forward

After all, you don’t want to still be carrying a nightmare when you arrive at another one

Cheesecake is Life

Cheesecake is life
Every day a bite
Delicious or sickly
I could eat this all night

Every bite a day
Sometimes it’s just scrumptious
Sometimes it’s a bit tangy
Sometimes its riche
And sometimes its sickly

Yet tangy or sickly
Scrumptious or rich
Its cheesecake
Regardless its delicious

Sometimes you bite off more than you can chew
Sometimes you barely take a bite and let it go to waist
Sometimes you just have the amount that would satisfy goldilocks
Just right

Cheesecake is life
Every day a bite
Delicious or sickly
I could eat this all night

They say you can’t have your cake and eat it too
But cheesecake is beautiful
And I’m taking a bite

Once my spoon comes dry
I will not cry
Because I had my cake
And I ate it too
Cheesecake is beautiful
And life is too

Force The World To Deal With You

You have to decide who you are and force the world to deal with you, not with its idea of you.

James Baldwin

Everyone has a perception of who you are or who they want you to be,

Your friends,partners,parents,employer/ees.

They may tell you that you can’t do something, that you shouldn’t do something, that you’re not right for this or that

Because their version of you, you can’t.

And battling with other peoples perceptions can be draining.

But just because they don’t agree with what you are or want to do because it doesn’t fit their idea of you

Doesn’t mean you should not do it,

After all their perception of you is their problem.

Who you are

Be it.

They can deal with it or not, either way not your problem.
