If You Don't Know Me By Now



Quote of the day:

“I laugh, I love, I hope, I try, I hurt, I need, I fear, I cry. And I know you do the same things too, So we're really not that different, me and you.”
-Colin Raye




If I could.
Change just one thing.

If I could.
Retrace my steps.

If I could.
Run backwards in time.

But you see I can't...

But I can.
Eventually change everything.

But I can.
Always keep moving.

But I can.
Race into the future.

How to Get Better and Ahead in Life



Quote of the day:

Second place is not a defeat. It is a stimulation to get better. It makes you even more determined.”
-Carlos Lopes




Life is a race.
Life is a game...
Winners and losers.

With defeat one shouldn't ever give up..
It's always difficult hearing the victory songs of others-whilst our own songs remain silent from our trembling lips.

Being first at all times takes dedication...and even with that it's never guaranteed.
We all wish to be first in all aspects of our daily lives.

No one goes about thinking "Oh I'd like to be second place in this or that"....

Thing is...society tends to dictate how our existence and confidence should be. People look up to the winner, looking past those forming a long line behind him-forgetting that second place, third, fourth....is not defeat...just a motivation to get better.

So... as you go about living your life daily, remember this....
You can't always win.
But you can always get better at things....

Poem: Heroine



Quote of the day:


You can observe a lot just by watching. -Yogi Berra


A moon's reflection

The smile on her lips.
The shyness in her eyes.

The innocence of her gaze.
The sheer beauty of her face.

The calmness in her demeanor.
The measure of all her splendor.
