Mostly, I just believe that I’m never going to stop learning what it is I believe.
— Henry James
Let me tell you something you haven’t learnt yet, something you learn only by living awhile…
As you get older, you find that life begins to wear you down. Doesn’t matter who you are or what you do, it happens. Experience, time, events - they all conspire against you to steal away your energy, to erode your confidence, to make you question things you wouldn’t have given a second thought to when you were young. It happens gradually, a chipping away that you don’t even notice at first, and then one day it’s there. You wake up and you just don’t have the fire anymore.
Then you have a choice…
You can either give in to what you’re feeling, just say “okay, enough is enough” and be done with it or you can fight it. You can accept that every day you’re alive you’re going to have to face it down, that you’re going to have to say to yourself that you don’t care what you feel, that it doesn’t matter what happens anyway, that you’re going to do what you have to because otherwise you’re defeated and life doesn’t have any real purpose left.
When you can do that, little Wren, when you can accept the wearing down and the eroding, then you can do anything. You know something? It’s not so hard really. You just have to get past the fear.”
The Good Life EP
Tim Myers - “Beautiful World”
The children outside all are laughing under perfect skies
The shapes and patterns in this season make me feel alive
I wanna shout it from the roof top and tell the world
That, “I was blind but now I see what’s right in front of me!”
It’s a beautiful world I see, everything looks differently
It’s a beautiful world I see, these moments are changing me
When I look at the sky I see the reason why I know…
Start REALLY living your life before you die!
