Our life on earth is fleeting like a butterfly on the wing. As I head further into the last quarter of my time on this earth I have been busy thinking about what I want to achieve next. Once you have your health in check, a comfortable home, and your children grown and leading their own lives your time becomes your own. I’ve been through some tough times in my past, which has given me an inner strength. I know things are not going to be any easier in the future as the clock of life begins to wind down. There will be more sadness and mountains to climb. We are only given a limited amount of time to enjoy all the pleasures life can give us, so we must live each day like it is our last.
Everyday is precious and we don’t get it back. We can’t rewrite history. Words and actions can’t be unsaid or undone. We have to forgive, forget and move forward. What doesn’t add to our happiness must be cut off, discarded, and set adrift. I have spent too many years trying to understand the behaviour of others, and now I realise it is just wasted time.
With every new year I’ve always set myself a new challenge. It is a way to motivate myself. If I focus on the future, with a positive attitude, I can leave the hurt and pains others create behind me. It helps to keep my mind free to focus on what brings me pleasure and not pain. I’ve decided the time has come to seek out my younger self, and to fulfil all those ambitions I once had which never happened because of the negativity of others I allowed to get in my way. From now, until I draw my last breath, I shall become single-minded and focus all my energy on my creative soul.
It’s time to take my writing to the next level by looking for ways where I can make the biggest improvements. Maybe, writing faster, to shape idea far quicker. I want to enter more competitions with bigger prizes too. So watch this space.
