Life’s Curtain call.


Live today like no other.

Give to others like no other,

For then we can teach each other,

To live a life like no other.

 

The curtain goes up, now it comes down.

Swishes one way and now swishes the other…. way.

 

We step out, we bow, we smile, we step right back and the curtain falls.

Our smile disappears.

It opens, it discloses, and now it closes,
We see as spectator’s glimpse of the performers it hides.
Now you see me, now you don’t,
Now I smile now I won’t.

 

Will you ever know me, do you care to know me?
What you see is me, and then not me,

Life’s mask has adorned me.

 

Will you ever know me, do you care to care?
The performer that’s outside me is not the me that’s within.

What you see, is not what is me, the me that is hidden is often forbidden,

To you.

 

Will you ever know me, do you care to care?
Now the curtain reveals its show to you,

The performer within me will smile and beguile.
The people I meet they care or they don’t,
They hurt me as oft as oft as they want.
Some look after my back or they don’t and don’t care,
There are some real friends although often they are not.

 

The friends that are friends are so rare to find,

So, nurture their friendship and ensure you are kind.
People talk straight but many they don’t,
Seems easier to talk badly cause that’s what they want.

The demons within them much stronger than good,

The “fork tongues” within them feed better on bad food.

When they eat the bad seed do they care about you,

Or simply deliver the message that discredits,

seems much easier to do.

 

The sun goes up the sun goes down,

The sun disappears.

 

The warmth that there was now grows cold and so dark.
The friends we make, the friends who remain,

The friends who we can share the sadness and tears.
Which do we have?

 

The sunshine friends or the flitting moonlighters,

The ones that stay through thick and thin.

 

The ones that believe and stay by your side,

or simply discard you like an old broken dustbin.

We are grateful for the friends who remain in our lifetime,

for they create the memories,

we share always and for all times in our life.

The friends we had now some long gone,

though some remain.

The friends they live the friends they die.
Some we remember some forgotten,

in life’s wind swept away in the dusts of time.

The kids we were, they are all long gone,

all grown up into the adults we now are.

 

The adults we are, the mask we now wear,

we now hope is kindly,

not ravished by those who didn’t care.

 

Or tainted by the world that is tough and blunts our hearts.
Let’s hope we still believe in happy endings,

That there is a bright sparkle and a light when it’s all over.

The life we now have is the life we now lead.
The life we lead determined by our heart and our courage.

The courage we have dependent on the desire to change.
The desire to change and overcome the challenges we dare to take…

 

For life so surely throws them all, we cannot dodge.

The courage that unharnesses the comfort zone, so there is none.
For when it’s gone much more is possible,
Let us be unbridled, free of any zone.
For our comfort zone determines our horizons, determines our scope.
The horizons, near or far the distance determined by the fear and the chains within.
For without such constraints all life is changed.
So, let us be free of the box,

For what then we ask ourselves, if there was no box to think outside?

What then would we think?
Would not all thoughts and ideas be free to collide with unrestrained liberty and creative energy.

Life with no zone and no box has the limitless energy of all that is possible.

The possibility that much more can be achieved.

 

A life fulfilled with much more,
A life that delivers our dreams, a life fulfilled.

The curtain opens, it opens wide, it opens fully,

 

Let us walk through heads held high and

step right through and grab the blessings of life.

 

So that when we take our last curtain call,

we have given the very best performance,

with all the gifts we were given.

Let’s still believe in happy endings,

That there is a bright rainbow when it’s all over.

Live today like no other.

Give to others like no other,

For then we can teach each other,

To live a life like no other.

Truth or Secret!


As a blogger I am fortunate to have a number of folks’ who talk to me about what I write. This is one of their stories.

This blog may well reach out to many of us who have had those moments when we had to decide Truth or Secret. This may be YOUR STORY TOO…

  • Which can you cope with?
  • What do you REALLY want to KNOW?
  • If we knew could we ever FORGET?
  • If we knew could we ever FORGIVE?
  • Would it make us STRONGER?
  • Would it make us WEAKER?
  • Would it destroy who we ARE?
  • Would it define our CHARCTER for BETTER or WORSE?

Life has given all of us this CROSS ROAD and yet many of us HIDE truth and SECRET away for it is easier not to DEAL with REALITY.

Sometimes, we believe that not knowing is better than dealing with the the REALITY of TRUTH.

And yet…… those who don’t want to know will always remember… LINGERING DOUBTS LAST A LIFE TIME….

Do we REALLY believe that not KNOWING is the coping mechanism of LIFE?

Sometimes TRUTH is to damn HARD to cope with and too HURTFUL that we may never RETURN to who we ARE.

Sometimes the SECRET we keep is all the TRUTH we need and KNOW that the TWISTS and BENDS of life MAKES us WHO WE ARE!

The TRUTH is we all HAVE SECRETS the question is has HOW DID IT MAKE US BETTER PEOPLE…. Did it BUILD us or DIMINISH us?

Dedicated to all those who went through that dark tunnel! Thanks for sharing the journey.

Soar on the breeze, blown by the Wind.


Soar on the breeze, blown by the Wind

You may have my heart but not my soul

Life brings what it does….  No matter.

 

I am in charge of myself let it be known

My mind is my compass; my heart my compassion

My soul defines my character, and who I am.

 

My journey to my destiny be clear comes with choices

To be led by the crowd or hold strong through my faith.

 

And know what defines me are the choices I make

They will carry me through life’s challenges, whether they be good or with strife

What I achieve in my life is the reason for my being.

 

For they say life is a dash

And others will respond and attempt to influence; of that there is little doubt;

To have their say but be certain it does not have to be their way.

 

Create your own “carpe diem” and soar on the breeze and live your life.

 

Always remember stand out from the crowd

And be remembered because of who you truly are as that

Is the best of your life.

 

To always be remembered as the best version of who you are:

is to live through doing no harm to others.

 

Each day awakening with good in your heart;

a smile on your face and kindness in your deeds.

 

As such be remembered.

The 6 phases of relationships


RelationshipBlogImage2Part of  The 4 stages of leadership – see my link http://wp.me/pTp83-lN

This blog is about the 6 phases of relationships and follows under Personal Reflection in my 4 stages of leadership model.

Phase 1 – Relationship with me! – Realization.

  • What kind of relationship do I want to have with myself?
  • Do I like who I am?
  • Am I positive or negative in what I see or do?
  • Do I even like ME and is this who I always want to be?
  • Am I stuck in my own emotions and do I want to change?
  • Do I know what I want from myself?
  • Is the present person I am harming others?

Develop the vision of who you want to be.

Phase 2 – Relationships with my community – my Mask.

  • Do people feel positively or negatively towards me?
  • What do they see in my actions and behaviors?
  • Does a different part of me come out when I am in my community of family, friends, coworkers and community?
  • Do I even let them into my world or do I keep them out?
  • Do they believe or trust me?
  • Do I even trust myself?
  • Do they want to be with me? – Do I want to be with me?
  • Start to seek out others to define existing and future reality of who I need and want to be. Indeed is there a positive future if I do not seek help from others?

Develop oneness – get rid of different masks– look for support.

Phase 3 – Attraction – develop the person you like and need to become.

  • Give yourself permission that it’s possible to be different.
  • Release the chains that hold you in the past and move to the community that will help you move to your vision.
  • Find the communities you need to be part off and seek help and develop new relationships that are trusting and supportive.
  • Develop faith over fear for the change that is needed and yet to come.

Change is not the option the only option is whether you have the courage to choose it.

Phase 4 – Lets Hang out – Staying with your new community.

  • Continue to develop the “likeability” and goodness factor.
  • Hang out with people who engage and promote the person you have always wanted to become (and needed to become.)
  • Be with people who support and reinforce who you are becoming.
  • Start to behave not how others expect you but how you need to develop the new you.

Define your character based, not on what others expect you too, but in the knowledge that you are accountable for your own actions.

Phase 5 – Developing Awesomeness.

  • Continue to develop and sustain your character through higher levels of trusting relationships.
  • Remember that by becoming awesome you develop an ever-increasing community that sustains lifelong relationships.
  • Reestablish relationships with those love ones that were harmed
  • Know that by becoming awesome your actions will start to serve others and not yourself.

The first stage of servant leadership.

Phase 6 – SuperAwsome.

  • Become a champion of memorable relationships.
  • Share your experiences with others so that they can also be inspired.

The path to developing leadership in others.
