Things fall apart,
Nothing lasts forever and somethings are supposed to fall apart,
Your gym trainers, you don’t buy them to keep them in the same condition, they were made to eventually wear out…
Somethings fall apart when they could be held together,
But we neglect them, There not that important until it’s too late,
Like your car, the engine light isn’t that important until it blows up, or your bold tires can be replaced tomorrow but when you have ablow out today…
We treat our bodies like this too, that ache in your lower back isn’t important until it cripples you picking up your grand kids,
Like the tires could be replaced, that crippling back pain could have been prevented by stretching it out when it was just an ache…
Things fall apart, But they don’t have too
Not if we treat them right
A seed grows with no noise, but a tree falls with huge sound, Destruction is loud but creativity is silent, This is the power of silence, Grow silently
No, you’re probably not
I’ve had conversations like this all the time and looking back I’ve said my fair shares of I’m gonnas
I lot of them the ‘Not’ Was silent
I’ve also been on the receiving end of someones I’m gonna
There ‘Not’ Was also silent
I find it more powerful now to just say oh yeah I’ve done this by the way
And show the work I’ve actually done
If your ‘im gonna’ has gone on for over a week and you haven’t done anything to get started
Just tell your sell your full of shit and move on
At least then you can do something of use with yourself
Imitate the trees. Learn to lose in order to recover, and remember nothing stays the same for long’ – May Sarton
In the harshest winters, a tree will look dead, No leaves nothing… But after a harsh winter, that same tree will have the most gloriest spring…
You too will have harsh winters, will feel like you have lost everything… but in the time of struggle remember this is just a season in your life…
This too shall pass
and know that something beautiful is getting ready to spring, That beauty comes deep from within, deep down in your roots, it can’t be seen on the surface.
Don’t let the harsh times defeat you… ‘Nothing stays the same for long’
A divided mind will fall – Garret J White
When you want change but you’re scared of change, You will not change.
The fear will consume you, you will seek the comforts of what you know.
Rather than the uncertainty of change.
You will battle yourself daily, knowing that you should do something different but the voice in your head won’t let you.
You want change, you need to be certain that you want it, you can’t be torn between change and comfort (Old and New can’t live together remember) because comfort will win.
If your mind is split, dive deeper into why you want to change, take a look 5,10, 15 years down the line, how does your life look if you stay the same…
“Persist and Resist.” Epictetus
Remember your in this for the long run, till the whistle blows and knowing that you know that every second is yours to use.
You don’t need to worry about the other team, the scoreboard, what who and what have done as long as that clock is ticking you can turn the game around…
By Persisting in your efforts even when things aren’t going so good…
And resisting distractions that stop you from persisting that is the only way we can get ‘so far As I can see no way out but through’ (Yesterday’s post)
