Living each day much muchier

Moving on

Consult not your fears but your hopes and dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what is still possible for you to do.
Pope John XXIII


It’s not being endlessly hopeful that hurts, it’s the occasional crush of disappointment.

Still, isn’t it better to shine most of the time with a heart full of hope than spend the whole time second-guessing and fearing the worst?

It’s not looking out for the potential in people and circumstances that frustrates, it’s the dead end that stops you in your tracks and makes you say “Well … sh*t!”

Still, isn’t it better to keep a spirit of adventure than never to risk anything, or gain anything?

It’s not trying that makes you feel like a fool. It’s when you chalk up another failure and wonder what the point is of it all.

Failure isn’t the end of the story. It’s the seed of a new idea, a different approach and sometimes, a new goal altogether.

Sometimes it can take awhile for your heart to recover from setbacks. That’s okay, there will always be another path, waiting for you to find it.

    I’m inclined to ask what happened recently to make you write this but I guess you would have told me had you wanted me to know.

    If you are able to pull up your socks and be willing to have another go then you are, by far, a stronger person than I. I’m a bloody-minded type who, when hurt, doesn’t give that person or any other person the chance to do it again – which is different from everything else in life that is just a challenge and “…karma sending me tests to see if I survive…”

    My mum would say that if it didn’t happen then it wasn’t meant to happen and, in my opinion, if anyone doesn’t see how lucky they are when with someone with your intellect, your love of dance and, of course, your amazing smile – then there is a good chance that they aren’t worthy.

    Keep your chin up and chalk it up to experience; Albeit a shitty experience but experience nonetheless.

    Hell – if *I* can find someone who can tolerate me, you’re a certainty to find someone who will appreciate you 🙂
