Remember when you were young...?

Thursday, August 18, 2011

...and nothing mattered?

Other than playing frisbee on the beach.

Riding your bicycle down the street.

Playing marbles in the gutter with your mates.

Your mum and dad taking you on your first memorable holiday.

Dreaming about being a fireman, or a lawyer, or a rock star?


When did everything get so complicated?

None of us are given a rule book at birth, our lives between childhood and adulthood are what gives us charachter - these are the lessons that define us and make us who we ALL are.

So what if you are unfit? So what if you are annoyed at yourself? So what if you do not have the greatest job in the world - does anyone? Brad Pitt originally wanted to be a carpenter. Al Pacino was originally a barman. Jeniffer Aniston would never have got anywhere without her Greek father's influence.

So do yourselves, your family, your friends and everyone else a favour - FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOURSELVES!!

We are only here once. We are born, we have the part in the middle where we are supposed to live and have fun and then we die - There is no coming back, regardless of whatever people may think.

This is OUR life - So live it!!

Life IS simple if you make it simplistic for yourselves - Remember when we were kids :)

    Too true! Have you ever read or seen the play Our Town by Thornton Wilder? I think this is pretty close to the theme of that play : Live our lives, every, every minute...Hope you are doing well.

    So much of what you say is true, but sadly at times in our lives things/people/situations come along that we have no control over! All one can do, is try to remain focused, cut out the negatives in life, thoughts/people and replace with the positives! Any form of negativity is a drain!! I am at present clearing the negatives out of my life and replacing them with positives! I am a realist and it will take a little time, but it will and is happening!!!

    Thanks for the blog my friend. I WILL catch u L8r.
