You know as we come to the end of this phase of our life we find ourselves trying to remember the good times and trying to forget the bad times. The thing is, those bad times like to make themselves more prominent than the good times. The bad times like to steal the thunder. The bad times like the attention. And the good times are too nice to kick ass.
And we find ourselves thinking about the future and start to worry. “What am I going to do? Where am I going to be in 10 years?” And I say to you, “Hey… look at me. Please don’t worry so much because in the end none of us are very long on this earth. Life is transient. And if you are ever distressed, if you are ever at a loss, if you are ever at the end of what you think you can handle right now…..cast your eyes to the summer sky when the stars are sustained and speckled across the smooth night and a shooting star trails through the blackness turning night into a bright visionary day… make a wish think of me and make your life spectacular.”
That is a word of different meaning across the grand scheme of the different beings that walk amongst the world.
It could be the best one day, the worst the next in comparison to those around me.
The people around you will make that determination of the day and shape your view of what you want it to be. But always make it
I am still learning now that it is about “good” and maybe never simply done. That the joy and work ethic and virtuocity we bring to the particular can bring in part a singular type of enjoyment to those we give to and of course to ourselves.
Know this: You can never be the best. Not really. And that is okay.
Someone will always run faster or be more fit. Someone will always be thinner or have a look you want. Someone will always have a better solution. The only thing you can be the best at is developing yourself. Because that person with the better of you will push you. Push you to the limit in which you thought you could not go…..and then make you go further. Because you yourself are the only one who knows what you can accomplish. Because you yourself have to challenge your own thought process of what you think is
Of what you see as
Truly. Because you, yourself can only be responsible for your own.
