One life – Only so many breaths.


It is said that much of life is what we make it, or is what life makes of us?

Did we ever really have all of the choices, or were we destined before we even begin life to do the things that we do, or be who we have become?

There have been many times when I know that I have wasted the limited breathes that each of us has been given.

I know that every one of us have only so many breathes, the number never known until the very last.

When we were young

We didn’t bother to count the number of breathes , we were invincible and life was ahead of us, fear was not even a word that we knew.

We could not even think of broken hearts, lost loved ones and the dashed hopes that each come across. Those days were yet to come.

The breathes that we took were of hope and a life to be lived, and dreams to be become reality and a life of fulfillment.

Our future was still unknown and we didn’t carry the thoughts that our life would have moments of sadness.

That life was not a straight path.

We didn’t even know who we would become.

Growing Up

We realized that not all of us have the same number of breathes and-along life’s pathways we lose some of those who should have had more.

We are reminded to use the breathes that we have for good use and not to waste them needlessly.

That we are lucky ones because some of those who were much more deserving never had the same number of breathes that we have.

That the fairness of life is simply not fair, but to waste the breathes that you have been given is much worse.

That while we make mistakes along the way, some have been given breathes to reflect and pay forward so that others can avoid foolhardiness and for us to renew our ways.

That to grow up for some creates an unimaginable stress as not all can see a pathway for their future, their destiny remains unclear and a life that is still a mystery.

Settling down

Reflecting on a near done life with some time still left to go, what messages do we desire to give, for we have found that life is different for everyone and yet every life has its own meaning.

What did we learn along the way, what was the same for each of us and what did it teach us.

We all have one life and a predetermined number of breathes, for each untold.

Yet we need to create a life that has dreams that can unfold, and so it is told:

One life only so many breathes a reflection

We were born to be the children of the universe

So that each can honor, serve, and knowledge disperse,

To make the best of what we are given,

Is God’s gift for all the living.

There are only so many breathes that each of us take,

So lets decide that they will be the very best we can make.

So that when we look back and then to create nurture

Our children can say we gave them a future

The lesson we leave is to use all our breathes no matter the number

To do the very best is what we must remember.

I've decided to pursue my passion in jewellery designs since I love femininity and all things beautiful and sparkly, well almost all. I'm a proud mother to two gorgeous and amazing girls. I recently left the corporate world, went through a tragic loss and relationship breakdown yet I'm here alive and still very much wanting to pursue my dreams and maintain a state of happiness. This site opens up a new world for me to share and if I'm really privileged connect with with others.
