When you fall, get up

 There comes a time in life where we all stumble…

We’re human, none of us are perfect in this world.

We may try to be, but failure is all apart of life.

Those falls are where and when we build our character, looking deep within and pull forth the strength needed to keep going.  After all, it’s not like we can just sit there and watch the world pass us by. Some wish that were the case, but we would become nothing more than an obstacle for others to walk over or go around. If you pause to think for a second, it really rings true. We sit and watch everyone go by, we’re merely making it a little bit tougher for others. The clock always ticking, the years go by quicker, and people grow in separate directions. You see, I’ve failed once in life and allowed it to torment me for a couple of years, but things do indeed happen.

We have to remember that we have the chance to pick ourselves back up, whether it’s now or two years later, but it CAN be done with a little determination.  You fall in love, we fall out of love, we fall short, and we could fall flat. In order to walk, you must first fall and realize the pain in doing so. You could walk a million miles in life, but eventually you will fall, embrace it. When it happens, take a brief look at your surroundings and get up because the clouds will continue to roll by and the sun will rise somewhere every morning. In America, it’s growing closer to that time of the season, where leaves turned brown fall slowly from their limb in the trees. The change of seasons and the growth of an individual, realize and embrace it.

… Until we meet again


Where does the script stop?

They do say,”everything happens for a reason”, right? That just depends if you believe in “free will”, but we do have logic for reason.

As I sit and look out the window, i can see a plane flying through the distant blue skies and it makes me wonder. The plane knows where it’s going right? Shouldn’t I know where MY plane is going? If you travel, you know where you’re going and how you’re going to get there. Some may even just take off spontaneously, but in the back of their mind they have a destination. Where does my destination take me? There is one thing that speaks to me more than anything and through it, I never lose sight of the end.

Often, I am searching for any piece of insight that can help me find where I truly want to be, not mentally, but spiritually. Music touches my soul and I never feel lost within it, but its not my current track. The track that I walk on is not filled with harmony, musical notes, and great composers. I am the composer, not yet great, but I am missing one piece of me, my motivation. I carry great visions of success and pictures for my future, as it only began not too long ago, or what seemed like not too long ago. If my life were a song, I envisioned it in winning a Grammy for “Song of a Lifetime”. Drake said he was “24hours from greatness,”so I guess that makes me 2:04 from my dreams. My song doesn’t repeat, it plays only once and in that short time I must make the most of it. There is no intro, no drumbreaks, just solid playing from a piano, the instrument of my mind…cascading up and down to symbolize my trials and tribulations. It slows at times, but catches speed again when my ambitions are clear and my mind is focused. My mistakes can be easily overpowered by my successes in this song, hoping that to others, it’s a song to remember. When its over, I want to say I touched someone’s life with my song and not just mine. The script to that song is etched in my soul and I must continue reading it until the days that I can no longer read any further, leaving a song that in my heart, is unfinished…but to others and the ONE above, it’s complete. Write your script, learning from your mistakes to make amends for them later down the line.
