If you knew then, what you know now, would you do it again?

We’d all love to get it right the first time
But sometimes a shot at a second chance is all we have left

A chance to get things right
An opportunity at peace.
An opportunity to reconnect and mend bridges.

It’s this shot at redemption that gives life its meaning
Inspiring that little bit of hope that ultimately keeps you going.

Without it, there’s really not much left to live for. 

So don’t waste your time away on a lifetime of regrets
Thinking ‘if only’ or ‘what if’ – 

It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history.
Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see.

Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself.

It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons,
And being able and willing to take the hits.

So take your second chance.

Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope
And stay determined to do things a little different. 

Because doing things a little different, is the only way you’ll ever break the cycle you’re in.

    There’s a great symphony in sadnessA million things conspiring beautifully together to set a sombre tone. It’s a tragedy, no doubt. Irrational at times, often transcending words or reason.But incomprehensible in...
  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
