As I sit here and take in the music, sung to me by one miss Stevie Nicks and indulge in some Merlot, while reflecting upon the day, the week, and life in general, I have come to one conclusion. Life is what it is. We can make it, break it, and take it, but in the end we have to deal with it as well. Recently I have lost my job of 10 years…so I found myself at a crossroad. Sometimes when at a crossroad we have to stop and ask ourselves why we have come here, and where we are to go from here. Forward is the only way I know where to go! I have been contacted by a prospective dream job that I will take as it is. or reject as it was, either way one of the best of the best called me back, that is fine with me, either way it may go from here.
I have altered my pictures to fit in a format to upload to a shop I plan to start up, I have listened to Stevie’s very enduring word’s and I have sipped my vino with volition, and circumstance as well as caution. I have also made perfectly sure NOT to get my hopes up, because as we ALL know when we do it all comes crashing down and is that much worse…To not hope sometimes is to relish in the win when we accomplish something… and then and only then is it so much better! So I will keep my head high and hopes low as I make this next step…but ensure my happiness either way! To protect oneself is the first priority…Go ahead and put other’s first and see what happens!
Life has a way of taunting us into believing something, or believing in a certain way That I don’t agree with or refuse to admit. Either way it is what it is. Am I perfect? HELL’S NO! Do I try? HELL’S YES! With this being said, I can also say that sometimes we settle for what we believe is our best… for example I spent 10 years in a place that tortured me, there was no room for growth, no room for self thoughts, or ambition, it was simply do this, do that, and we as good little soldiers followed…I have NEVER been a follower! Time to shine! Which brings me to life…
Life…”Well Father, do you have the rest of the week?” Yes I was brought up to be a good Catholic boy! Sometimes we settle for what is right in front of us despite whether or not it is right for us…so what do you do? Do you shelter them with your love and affection as I have? What do you get in return? Do you support them with your showering love and affection? What is in it for you? Do you put them first? DO THEY? Do you settle? Or move on? Do you change them or do they change you? Or Both? And if so why? Why not? Sometimes we need to take a stand and be ourselves and if noone can handle us then so be it! They weren’t meant to be…So Today I ask you this…What have you done for you? Nothing? SHAME ON YOU! As well as ME! Today is the day! Start living for YOU! If You don’t then what is the point at all?
