We take our given days for granted, 24 hours fly past so fast that most times weeks and months all meld together into a blur.
They go by whilst we stay planning for all the things that we will do tomorrow which we could have done today.
We plan for the big moments when all lines will fall into the right place, that we tend to forget that one day when we grow old together, we will remind each other about these days that seemed ordinary and uneventful, yet when we take a good look, we will find chockful heart-tugging memories wedged in-between these days.
In a bid to fit in with the crowd, many people find themselves living a completely misconstrued life.
The truth to realise is that no matter how hard one tries, you can never please everyone and if your focus for living a good life is bent on impressing others, then you will probably find yourself so bent out of shape that you’ll hardly recognise who you really are in that distorted embodiment of personalities.
Live your life to the best of your ability. Cease worrying about impressing others and your life will be far easier. You should seek to be true to yourself, to impress yourself and God.
Below is my first Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.
When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.
Life lived dancing to the tunes of misery wears out the soul living it.
Yes indeed, our days are not always smiles and sunshine, but the truth is that misery and negativity are barely a head’s turn away and once you give it room, it becomes a permanent tenant and a difficult one to evict.
A lot of times when I am feeling down, I might brood for a while, but with training my mind to shut off the negative raps, I endeavour not to stew in it by getting engaged in little things that will uplift my mind and take the focus off me.
Not the easiest thing to do at times, but the alternative is worse.
Even if it seems the safe route to take at the beginning, it ends up being the route to nowhere.
The truth is that in taking a bold step, making mistakes along the way helps us to combat fear and builds our confidence, while inaction to step out fosters the terror and fear that grips our minds and paralyzes our mind and eventually erodes any confidence or zest that we may have had.
There are many routes that leads up the mountain top and we must take one to climb it. We cannot stay at the foot of the hill and dream about the view from up.
