One Freaky Friday the 13th

I’ve never believed in superstitions, witchcraft or séances but instead been a firm believer in things happen for a reason. However that still doesn’t mean that having the rug pulled out from underneath me repeatedly one day doesn’t make me wobble. Today has been one of the ‘endless carpet rides.’
Despite having to dye my hair from brown to blonde, pretty soon it will be instead from the grey of this repeated up and down turn of events. I’m hoping this weekend will lead straight on to forging the decision making.
Confronting the past, present and future all at one time can make a girl dizzy. I know indecision can lead to a decision but if you’re powerless to determine its outcome can confuse matters completely.
One part is pushing for leaving, another to stay behind while a third is offering two different choices where one perplexed individual, me, is saying what now? If I ever think I’m starting to understand life, please feel free to smack me!

“Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today.”

James Dean said it best with dream as if anything is possible but live life like each day is your last. Throw caution to the wind and embrace life’s challenges. Too many times we reach the end of our lives with not I wish I had never done that but instead, why didn’t I take the chance.
Mistakes are not the end of the world, we all make them but they mark and allow us to keep growing. We should not be the same person we were at the start than at the end of our lives. What makes us unique is the circumstances and the challenges we’ve faced.
The expression ‘what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger’ I find to be most telling! Do you want to come to the end of your life with battle scars or unblemished? The choice is yours, but I’ll take the bumps and bruises life dishes out.

Royal Wisdom

Royal Wisdom
By Amy Carothers
Things are changing so fast
From Osama gone to the Royal Love Nest
History is in flux, where do we go from here
Wondering with overseas, do we need to fear?

Chants of celebration can be heard outside my wall
Flags waving, people crying, our anthem playing proud
Remembering what happened those ten years ago
How life has changed and with it our ability to let go

This monster’s death brings back to life
Those sirens, screams and terror of that morning's sight
Although this gives families and our country some closure
We must never forget the very thing that brought us closer.
