Something To Ponder (life in my eyes)

This is for everyone that thinks their life isn’t worth living, or feel there is nothing to live for……it’s only my view…..but I hope you understand where I’m coming from….even just for a little bit…

Love yourself, even if you feel no one else does.
Trust me, when push comes to shove sometimes, it’s only yourself that can make you press on. Don’t worry about people that think ill of you.
Most of the time they see something in you that they wish they had.
Take life as it comes; some of the best laid plans never work.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a direction. Just make sure you remember that life happens and that there are as many ups as there are downs. Don’t dwell on your failures, everyone makes mistakes. It’s the way most people end up learning to be better. Be there for your friends as much as possible. Cause when things get tough for you, they’ll remember what you did for them and return the favor. It’s o.k. to get mad at your parents, but remember, they were your age too. Try not to be so negative when something goes wrong, you can always try again until you get it right. School isn’t something to be taken lightly, though it might be boring most of the time there are some good things to get out of it. When I find out what those things are, I’ll let you know. Don’t use the word love so lightly. It’s one of the most amazing words humans have come up with. And one of the most painful things to lose.

Don’t be afraid to be soft hearted, sometimes it helps you grow. Don’t grow up too fast, immaturity is something that keeps the boundaries of serious and fun strong. Don’t worry, well don’t worry about things that are completely out of your grasp. It seems impossible but when you think about it enough it will make sense.
Your future isn’t set in stone, so don’t do something just because everyone else is doing it. Your voice is powerful, and when you speak people do listen. Just don’t let that go to your head. Don’t be so hard on the younger generation, they haven’t lived as long as you have. Sometimes they need a little help in the right direction, and not told how stupid they are. Listen, even if you aren’t interested, sometimes it’s not understanding that someone looks for, it’s just an ear to talk to. Blaze your own trail whenever possible, sometimes it just feels good to do something no one else has tried. Don’t look back too often or one time when you do you might miss something in front of you. Work towards your dreams no matter how hard it gets.
When you reach that dream the most memorable part of it will be how you got there. Listen to your grandparents, they’re a well of knowledge. Talk to people, not at them. Every once in a while stop and take a look around. You’ll notice things you didn’t even know where there. Smile, it doesn’t take much and can brighten up not only your day but everyone else’s. Remember always that family is something that you should hold close. They’ll be there to listen to your problems, cheer you up, and help if they can. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind, sometimes the best said phrases are left unheard. Don’t try to be someone your not, in the end you won’t feel any better. Laugh, it’s the best part of life sometimes and can often help heal your scars. Don’t worry if you haven’t found that special someone. It’s likely while you look for them, they are looking for you. When you find each other remember how hard you looked for them. And work just as hard to keep them by your side, you’ll find they will too. Get married, or don’t get married, don’t let outside influences force you to do anything. Travel whenever possible, it’s easy to forget there’s a big world outside of your home. Enjoy the finer things in life, don’t be afraid to sing with any song you like. Dance when you want to, you don’t need to be good at it as long as it makes you feel good. You will get old, your music will be “out of date” and your style will be considered “lame”. So remember that when you comment on your parents music, your turn will come. Try not to be hurtful, sometimes when you’re frustrated with someone you can do it without knowing.

Having said that, remember when someone is angry sometimes they say some things they don’t mean.

But If it’s the only thing you take from this, just realize that it’s your life.
Do whatever you want with it, just keep in mind we effect everyone around us.
Good or bad, right or wrong, even in the smallest sense.
And no matter what anyone says.

Simple Joys

Ascending into my eyes
It took me a life to realize
All the pain I had inflicted
All my past shadows will soon be depicted
I guess there’s no easy way to say this
But my life might just be a total miss
I’m going to learn how to swallow my pain
I’m going to learn how to swallow my shame
I’m a prisoner of my own device
And for too long, I’ve been rolling the dice
It’s time I give the world a chance
And for once step down from a powerful stance
For too long I have used the human race as a toy
It’s time for once I spread the joy
