The same man can play Craven in the morning and hero in the afternoon
– Last of the Amazons
It can be turned around as fast as that
Just one thought, just one action, just one stroke of luck
And your whole life could change
When you think that you have been defeated and there is no hope left.
Just remember that there is
How many time have you put this off?
Procrastination the curse that just keeps on taking.
Time and time again we are granted with opportunities to accomplish tasks yet we keep giving those opportunities away.
Time and time again and ironically we end up with less and less time…
I started a course a year ago and it expires today,
Guess who’s spending their evening trying to complete it… Me.
Even after a year of lockdowns and countless lazy days…
Think of your many years of procrastination; how the gods have repeatedly granted you further periods of grace, of which you have taken no advantage. It is time now to realise the nature of the universe to which you belong, and of that controlling Power whose offspring you are; and to understand that your time has a limit set to it. Use it, then, to advance your enlightenment; or it will be gone, and never in your power again
– Marcus Aurelius
To fight against the darkness is to win
You cant see
It feels like you are carrying the world and more
Your fighting internal battles
And external ones to
Every angle you can’t see an escape
But whatever you do
Dont surrender to the darkness
Dont give up
The more you fight, the more you push the darkness back,
Eventually you’ll start to see light
But only if you keep fighting.
Defeat the darkness.
Sometimes there is nothing you can do.
No matter how frustrating.
No matter how angry it makes you.
Sometimes all you can do is take a few deep breaths.
While you can’t control the outside world, you can control your breath.
Take a long deep breath in.
Stay calm amongst the chaos.
