Happy Birthday to me! Two days ago I became another year wiser!!! Read more
Remembrance of my life’s experiencesWhen I was sailing the channels of youth, I was surrounded by the sailors called “friends” sailing across the oceans of existence.
After the storm battered my yacht, I found myself alone swimming the dangerous waters of life.
There are plenty of fish in the sea, but there are no “Nemos.”Words are mine!
Evolution can forge in many shapes in our lives. It can frame like a tidal wave, or crawl further progressively like poisonous weeds. It can advance in the cast of a wounding agony such as unfortunate options, beaten love affairs, or even new chances of possibilities and freedom of opportunities.
Every year comes with its own pinnacles and by trying to ascend them brings lessons to us, where as some of us reaches the climbing point of the pinnacles and some of us don’t.In previous years I have made New Year resolutions, but circumstances changed me. My life is my book and I am the author and the next thing is for me to know how I want to write my story.
“Each day is a chance to design my own providence”
It is unimaginable how fast 2016 has gone by. It seems like it was only yesterday when we started preparing for this year, getting ready to make our list of goals, evaluating the things we have done in 2015 and now, pretty much with the twink of a second we are doing the same thing once again, but heading into 2017. What have we done and where has time gone?
Friendship makes life approachable and charming. When we have good trusted friends, we have the most precious gifts of life and we are lucky enough.
I have been thinking about “change,” and who I was this time 21 years ago. I know I was a lot more, soft, timid, and I allowed lots into my life. I am no longer that person anymore.
This time 21 years ago, I was waiting on a call that I thought was never going to come. And now, I am making the call.
I do not know exactly when I changed, or how, but I know at some point, between cutting my strings, escaping my cage, and building my wings, I set myself free. “I have made mistakes I can never rewind and I have excuses that you will never believe” and when I think back on this phrase, it is the one meaning that gives me confidence and alerts me that “I AM NOT PERFECT” and to me perfectly “IMPERFECT ” makes me GREAT deep within me.
I have driven many roads, some of them with dangerous sharp bends, but one thing I experienced along the way is that “the BOULEVARD to TRIUMPH was DUSTY with many enticing stopping bays.” At certain crossroads, I felt there is something I needed to do which I should have done many years ago. I got rid of a streams of connections and they fell out because I shook the branches of my life, and am glad I did.
My hardest regrets are the days spent with the wrong flow of peeps. I learned my lessons, I passed my exams, and I am glad I went through them all, and when I look back on the years, they all make sense to me.
And here I am today, standing my grounds, strong, intelligent, mature and experienced. I progressed from them all. It was not easy, it was hard, but I did it, and I can tell you, I have become a well tough person and still good at heart! I have made the best decisions, and at some points, I have reached a certain parts of my goals in life, though there “maybe” still more to achieve, I am happy where I have reached. Am loving “what I have” and I don’t worry about “what I don’t have.” I AM WHO I AM!
But I know something for sure, “Someday, someone’s going to look at me like I am the best thing in the world.” It is like I want to say that “I cannot be good enough for everybody, but I will always be the BEST for the ones who deserves me!”
The best gift I gave to the people who came and left was my HEART because I gave them a place where there was LOVE, and it made me realised that my dream will defeat reality if I give it a chance. Within the boundaries of my experiences, I learned never to tell my problems to anyone, because the reflection I see from my mirror is the only person who can put me back on track.
Whenever I am in conflict with the ocean I set up my sail stronger, and I know that it is ME vs THE WINDS and no one else.
And where the “WINDS” will take me, I shall GO! (Please note that writings and pictures belongs to My Country Epoque and it is my original property)
