Just a short one today, short but significant. Throughout life we are posed many questions and face many a tough decision, today I’ve had made a very significant choice! This decision will, I’m sure, cause a lot of pain and suffering in the days, weeks and months ahead, but nonetheless it has to be done. I’m not going to share with you the detail of what it is, but I did want to share with you my thoughts behind making this choice.
For too long I’ve succumbed to the will of others, thinking that I was doing the right thing, for the right reasons, but it has dawned on me that I was wrong, an epiphany if you like, so instead of ignoring my own wishes or needs I’ve decided to listen to myself for a change; and do what’s right!!
We all have turning points in our life, many of them too and today is a profound one for me and you know what I’m gonna celebrate the fact that I had the spirit, strength and determination to do what’s right……for me!
If you live a life of oppression or compromise, where others just about determine all that you do, I’d like you to think hard about that, are you ever going to be happy if you are constantly giving in, conceding defeat to others who shout louder than you? Or are you going to let people play games with your life, having you chase your own tail, living a life of doubt and mania?
This is no way to live! Wake up….like I have and be yourself, express yourself as you wish to, if others don’t get it or like it, well tough shit! We only get one shot at this life, think about that!! At nearly forty I consider myself lucky to have realised this now and not another 10 years on like my parents did, you can do a lot of cool stuff in 10 years, achieve a great deal, make something of yourself……………….HAVE FUN!!
The liberation from dictators is topical at the moment and how apt for me right now lol, I’m a freedom fighter, fighting for his life, his destiny and his future……..and I’ll do anything to protect my freedom! I’m armed to the teeth with determination, self belief, and courage to make difficult decisions, by taking control of MY life I’ve suddenly found this secret cache of weapons that will take me to the next milestone in my life’s journey.
If that sounds pretentious or profound, well it’s both and I don’t care what you think anyway lol.
Respect and Peace!
