Life begins when

Life doesn’t happen when you dropped those last few pounds

That’s not when you start to live

Life doesn’t happen when you get that promotion

That’s also not when you start to live

Life doesn’t happen when you get the grades you want, get excepted into the university you want, get the degree you want,

You don’t start to live after you have achieved something,

Life doesn’t begin when your earning x amount, or look a certain way or have some letters after your name

Life happens daily, before during and after you get those things

Life can be awesome, but your missing it because you think it starts once you retireā€¦

In Between Time

We book a holiday and all we do is look forward to it,

We imagine ourselves sat on a beach with a cocktail, or seeing a world famous site whilst we go about our boring daily lives

We get excited about going to a party or a meal with so and so and once again this consumes our mind

But the time in between planning the thing and actually doing the thing matters just as much

Yeah you may be looking forward to your holiday or whatever but are you not equally looking forward to another day.

Instead of daydreaming about what you could be doing in 2 weeks time you could be enjoying the taste of your food or the sites around you

The things we do in between are the important stuff because they take up the majority of our lives and to be honest they’re pretty amazing if you learn to appreciate them

Another Face

In this crowded place
Your not just another face
What you do will leave a trace
And not just for the human race

Your not just another face
When I look into your eyes
I got lost in a galaxy far far away from the space I know,
Your far more than just a face

You have a soul, that makes you whole, not just another face to sit behind a desk and punch numbers into a computer, while your coworkers socialise about nothing much

And you stress and think your life is a mess because you’ve been conditioned in the westernised way of living,

But are you really living,
I get lost in your eyes but I can see they have just cried,
are you really living,
your boss may have lied and life may not be what you thought it was but when you realise that your far from just another face

You can lead the human race to a realisation that we have souls and this western way we live is just a deflation on our souls
so that we never became whole.

Let go of your beliefs that you need to work hard in a job you dont like, so you can live in that apartment that you don’t want to hang out with people that you don’t like
this belief has robbed you like a thief

You should pack up and leave,
follow your heart you are the chief,
this is your life your not just another face to win the corporate race,
I can see it in your face you will achieve more if you follow your heart

Pack up and depart follow your heart turn your life into art
your not just another face this corporate race is killing your spirit,
dont fear a new start,
dont fear it
unleash your spirit
your not just another face
In this crowded place

Excuses weigh our souls down

Dreams weigh more than excuses

So they say, but I don’t think that’s entirely true.

We all have dreams but we easily disregard them when we realise how much work they require

Or when life gets in the way, we push them to one side and eventually forget them

But excuses

We make them on the daily

Even though deep down they burn us, because we know were not living the best version of ourselves

Even if we disregard our dreams, we make excuses for anything and everything from exercise to starting a book and everything in between

Excuses eat away at our pride and make us rethink different scenarios of what could of happened if we did that instead of making this excuse

Excuses weigh our souls down

Whereas dream we can easily chuck the duces up and go about our day to day

Dreams weigh more than excuses

Dreams weigh more than excuses
But is that really true
We throw the dueces up to our dreams that what it seems,
But excuses we keep coming back to

Dreams come and we let them go
Faster than the next thought that flows
But excuses they hold us down,
They prie on our pride
There a place we can hide
But deep down we know we let ourselves down
That thought never goes

We throw the dueces up to our dreams that what it seems,
But excuses we keep coming back to

Our dreams are great until we realise they require work
They lurk in our minds for a while
But were not willing to do the legwork

We throw the dueces up to our dreams that what it seems,
But excuses we keep coming back to, But excuses we keep coming back to, But excuses we keep coming back to
