Signs are no good

Signs are no good if you dont follow them

If your looking for a sign the chances are you’ll find one because your seeking it,

Kind of like when you just get a new car and everyone seems to be driving the same one as you.

For a short moment in time I wanted to learn how to street dance (I think step up had just come out or something)

I remember saying if I see a sign I’ll join a club or something.

The very next day I saw a sign, it had probably been there for years but I wasn’t looking for it then

But I didn’t join I probably went home and played GTA or something

We’ve probably ask for and seen loads of signs in our lifetimes but we ignore them or don’t follow through.

Asking for a sign is probably just another form of procrastination,

Yeah I’ll do it if…

If we really wanted to do something we wouldn’t need to wait for a sign.

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

Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers

So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

Veronica Shoffstall

No one is responsible for your happiness,
Nobody
And your not responsible for anyone else’s

No one is responsible for your growth
No one is responsible for your career
No one is responsible for the actions you take, or dont take

Stop waiting for other people to solve your problems,
Stop blaming other people,

Just get out there and tend to your garden and watch what happens

It’s all on you.

Here & Now

Your pain is in the past
Your worries in the future,
Neither of them exist in the here and now

The future is imaginary, its filled with things we cannot see,
Yet thinking about this it does not allow us to be In the here and now

Your pain is in the past,
The rain never lasts
We cannot change the past
Yet we put so much strain on the brain
Thinking what would of happened if we did things a different way, thinking of things we didn’t say,
But the past has happened and that lead the way too
All that matters… the here and the now

Stop the chatter, just let it go
Otherwise you’ll never know
What it’s like to live in the here and the now

Your mind is making you blind, its grinding you down and making you frown over something that hasn’t even happened yet,

Your pain is in the past
Your worries in the future,
Neither of them exist right here in the now

We need to practice

We don’t become virtuous by reading Epictetus or Seneca, We need to practice – Massimo Pigliucci

Practice, Practice, Practice that’s all we’re doing, all day every day,

The question is what are you practising?

Are you practising what you said you would or are you practising talking or quitting…

Talking about how you’re going to do this and how your going to do that Or quitting this because it didn’t work the first time

Jerry Seinfeld was booed off stage the first time he performed, did he quit… no, He practised
