The manipulation of time may be, in my opinion, the one power that every human would want. To rewind to the good days, fast forward through the bad ones, change past mistakes or take missed opportunities would be a miraculous gift. If you add in the fact that I am obsessed with history and the future becomes an unstoppable source of frustration.
Sometimes I think too much. Well, most of the time I think too much, and I struggle with the overwhelming feeling of time slipping by and my life with it. To try to compensate, I have made changes in my life both mental and physical. There are so many things in my life that I have no control over, despite my, at times, desperate attempts. But I know what I do like, what I want, need, wish and therefore all choices I make must be true to who I am. Easier said then done? Sometimes, but often, these choices are quite natural…therefore, easy.
I am a stubborn individual. I have had to be at points in my life. And one thing I refuse to do in my life is waste it. I may be just a blip on the universal timeline, but I want to be the sparkliest, happiest blip you’ve ever seen.
How do you do that? Take a look at the last stanza of this month’s poem. “But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope.”
Live beautifully today and one’s life can never be a waste. Bad things are going to happen. But how you respond to them puts you in control to make a happy life.
May you too be a sparkly blip in the world!!
