We spend so much time trying to conquer life, avoiding the reality that death beckons.

Denying its place as that single inescapable truth.

We continue to pretend that we are somehow immortal,

Until one day – we realize that we’re not.

There is a great humility in death,

And it’s only your pride that convinces you that you’re bigger than it.

Deluding you into recreating the universe in your own image.

Making you believe that the very nature of things doesn’t apply to you,

That you are somehow above it all.

And it’s only death that reminds you that you’re not.

The way forward then, is to accept defeat

Accept the reality that you can’t win them all.

And that regardless of the heights you may reach in this life, 

you will face your moment just the same.

There is something very liberating in accepting that fact, 

in the letting go and realizing

That some things will always remain beyond your control

  • The Decision of No Decision
    Indecision is a decision in and of itself, even though you may not recognise it as such. Your decision to do nothing – to let things play out on their own. It’s taking a back seat and waiting to see how the chips may fall.
  • Taking Your Second Chance
    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 be determined to do things a little different.
  • Symphony of Sadness
    There’s a great symphony in sadness A million things conspiring beautifully together to set a sombre tone. It’s a tragedy, no doubt.  Irrational at times, often transcending words or reason....
  • 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
