Opportunities, Fear & Patience

Some opportunities don’t come around everyday so when they do appear we have to be ready and willing to take it. 

There is never going to be a perfect time to start something new only the time you make.

So many times in our life we talk about wanting more, wanting to be more but we’re afraid to take the risks having more involves. 

Fear of failure is what is stopping so many of us from chasing our dreams. Fear of not knowing what to do is what keeps so many of us in our comfort zones. Ultimately we pass up on opportunities because of fear. 

The decisions we make in life should be based on our dreams and aspirations not on our fears. We have to accept that with all things we have to start from somewhere and then be prepared to put in the necessary man hours to master our craft. 

We live in a age where everyone wants instant results, we live in a now generation where everything is fast paced and easily accessible. As the years have gone by and the world we’re living in has changed, patience is one of the characteristics we have lost along the way. We’re not accustomed to waiting for things like those before us who had no choice.

Success doesn’t download at these fibre optic speeds we’re now experiencing, real life results is still working on a dial-up speed meaning it takes time, they may be some interruption but with perseverance you will eventually get what you want.

Don’t let fear stop you from taking opportunities, when they come knocking open the door and with all things remember to be patient.

Peace, Love & Positivity

What are you waiting for?! 

At what point do you say enough is enough, at what point do you pick yourself up and take control of your life? 

For the majority of us there are no free hands outs in this world, if we want something we have to make it happen. A lot of the time we over complicate things by overthinking when really it’s simple.. If you don’t like the situation you are in YOU have to make a decision that you want to change it. 

At what point do we stop expecting and start acting. We all have different breaking points, for some breaking point is absolute rock bottom and for others it’s simply not being where they want to be in life. 

Is your breaking point any less or any more than another’s? No, to break is to break regardless of what point it comes at. It’s not the breaking that defines us it’s how we stick the pieces back together, it’s what we do when we reach our breaking point that decides where we go from there, up or deeper into obscurity.

Sometimes we hit hurdles in life, sometimes we find ourselves on a path we never envisioned but the good news is that nothing is set in stone. It’s never too late to make a change, it’s never to late to change direction and walk down a completely different path. Don’t let life deceive you, you have the power within to make change happen. 

How many times have you told yourself I’ll do it tomorrow? Don’t wait until tomorrow because what you find is you can become trapped in a cycle of waiting for tomorrow’s, tomorrow’s that never come.

Take back control, make a decision and run with it.

Dust Yourself Off And Try Again

Until we’ve learnt the lessons intended for us we will always continue to make the same mistakes, we’ll always end up in the same sticky situations.

Life isn’t as complicated as we make it out to be, we’re given free will to choose the direction we’d like our life to go in, we’re given the choice in how we respond to the problems we face. Nothing is set in stone, no one can make you do or say things you don’t want to. Every word, every action comes from a choice we’ve made. This precise moment you are living is a result of a decision you made previously.

It’s so easy to blame things on other people or the world we live in. So many live with a woe is me mentality. We complain life is hard, we practically complain about everything but the ones continually complaining are the ones who are not willing to make the hard decisions or put in the hard work instead they expect things to be handed to them, we expect to one day have a miraculous change when in fact we must take action. 

How can you compare yourself to someone not knowing their story not knowing what they’ve done to be where they are, do you know the blood, tears and sweat they’ve shed to overcome what they have or do you just see and assume it came easy.

Life is really simple. Go after what you want in life. If you make mistakes learn from it and try again. You can’t knock a trier.

Snap Crackle Pop

Skiing white slopes swinging from trees seeking the next high
Seeking the next buzz never to be fulfilled
Always seeking the next seeking the best
Appetites never satisfied thirst never quenched 

A desire to have more a desire to feel more
A desire to do more a desire to be more
Never enough, please sir can I have some more
There is more but what if there was no more?

Can we not be grateful for now whilst still yearning for higher highs 
Can we not appreciate all we have whilst looking for greener trees and bigger gains
Spontaneity where no two days are the same, where people laugh when it rains
Where no one suffers in vain better yet a world free from pain

Some say this is wishful thinking some dream world living
I say if I can see it and believe it then it’s great planning 
Orchestrating aligning the dots, matching the snap with the crackle the crackle with the pop

Gratitude changes everything

Chewed Up & Spat Out

Blood suckers sucking till there’s nothing left
Stealing from your soul so brazenly we can’t even call it theft

No skin off nose, I’ve seen friends turn foe
I’ve had demons in my bed, devils play with my head 

I’ve been chewed up and spat out, left in the cold
I’ve had users call me brother but when shit gets real they fold

No holes barred when you’re at your lowest loosing your mind, you’ll see who’s got you and who’s around just to have a good time

They’ll dance with you in the club neck shots with you at the bar
But these words no action folks won’t be there to help pick up the pieces when you’ve taken it too far

I’ve been used mislead treated like I was dead, by a few fake friends who wanted my head 

They’ll laugh at your downfall kick you when you’re down, they’ll even rub salt in your wounds
They’ll spread propaganda they’ll try and tarnish your name like fake news

But I truly thank you, i’m so grateful now I can differentiate between what’s fake and true 

My circle decreased in size but increased in quality, real friends real love
They’ll pick you up when you’re down correct you when your wrong go beyond and above

They want to see you win because when you lose they lose
Through thick and thin the good times the bad and the ugly, real recognise real you can’t pick and choose

_______________________________________

People wonder why I’m so happy why I’m so grateful for the friends and family I have in my life. Why my friends are my family and my family are my friends. Why I’d do anything for those I love.
They’ve seen me at my worse, but they stuck by me. They loved me enough to know my mistakes do not define me. 

They saw me for me. 

Sometimes you have to look back at the dark times to really appreciate how far you’ve come. To be grateful for where you are and where you no longer are.

In life we meet people who match the mindset we have at that stage of our life, as you grow and your mindset changes they can not come with you unless they too are willing to grow. At the time you may be hurt and not understand but as the years go by and they become a distant memory you realise why they couldn’t come with you. 

Be grateful for the lessons, be sorry for any hurt you caused, forgive any wrongs against you but never regret a day. 

Life is a learning curve. You live and you learn.
