Tempered Passion

One of the greatest difficulties of being born a Leo is the intense passion which tends to consume me in matters of the heart. When you love, you love deeply and because of the intensity, when it hurts, it hurts like a muthafricker. Imagine what happens when two Leos combine those mad forces.

So I am really trying to slow mi roll, After all, I rolling stone gathers no moss.

There isn't a time limit to love but there seems to be some way to avoid heartbreak by taking things slowly. But how does one slow down a fast moving brakeless train that has already gathered momentum unless by by derailing it?

And if you derail a train and get it to stop, would you not have lost key parts in the mangled remains? And what about the safety of the passengers.

In this euphoria of something new and totally wonderful, I just feel like the best thing is to let passion go. Reason should have exerted itself before this point.

Give Praise Children

The older I get, the more I realise how important it is to be present.

I have been holding on to some element or another of my past for the last few years and its time to really focus on right now.
If I cannot see whats immediately infront of me, I cant plan for a future. If I cannot appreciate where I am now, I will never appreciate future success because I will always be looking for things, circumstances and people to make me happy.

I am grateful to be in the place I am now and my heart sings praises to God. I am complete in this moment, whether its a happy moment or a sad moment. They are both side sides of the same coin.

As much as understanding history and the reasons for past mistakes and learning from them, and all the disappointments along the way, one cannot LIVE in it. Makes no sense to dream about something that has already gone wrong.

Decisions have been made... and consequences result. Got to live with them.

I know I did the best I could at every point along the way. No use in dwelling. I just know what will happen if similar situaltions present right now. I have already learnt those lessons. Back then, I did what was true to me. In the process, I grew, I expanded and I reached higher levels of self awareness through it all.

So I give thanks for now, this present moment. the next isn't promised to anyone.

I am living my best life, one present moment at a time.

Give thanks for wisdom.

The Son of a Preacher Man

Billy Ray was a preacher's son
And when his daddy would visit he'd come along
When they gathered around and started talkin'
That's when Billy would take me walkin'
Out through the back yard we'd go walkin'
Then he'd look into my eyes
Lord knows, to my surprise

The only one who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man
The only boy who could ever teach me
Was the son of a preacher man
Yes he was, he was, ooh, yes he was

Bein' good isn't always easy
No matter how hard I try
When he started sweet-talkin' to me
He'd come'n tell me "Everything is all right"
He'd kiss and tell me "Everything is all right"
Can I get away again tonight?

The only one who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man
The only boy who could ever teach me
Was the son of a preacher man
Yes he was, he was, ooh, yes he was (yes he was)

How well I remember
The look that was in his eyes
Stealin' kisses from me on the sly
Takin' time to make time
Tellin' me that he's all mine
Learnin' from each other's knowin'
Lookin' to see how much we've grown and

(The only one who could ever reach me)
He was the sweet-talkin' son of a preacher man
(The only boy who could ever teach me)
Was the son of a preacher man
Yes he was, he was, ooh, yes he was (yes he was)

On Joy and Sorrow

Kahlil Gibran

Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.
And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.
And how else can it be?
The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.
Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter's oven?
And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives?
When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.
When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.

Some of you say, "Joy is greater thar sorrow," and others say, "Nay, sorrow is the greater."
But I say unto you, they are inseparable.
Together they come, and when one sits, alone with you at your board, remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.

Verily you are suspended like scales between your sorrow and your joy.
Only when you are empty are you at standstill and balanced.
When the treasure-keeper lifts you to weigh his gold and his silver, needs must your joy or your sorrow rise or fall.

To All the Men I Have Loved Before....

Thank you for sharing some very memorable (and forgettable) moments in my life.

You have to bear with me if I fail to remember your surnames- marriage was never foremost.

But really though, the most important thing is that there are a select few who actually added meaningfully to my existence.

For all the good times (bottoms up)...

And no, this is NOT the equivalent to drunk-dialling your ex!

Bullet! Bullet!!

Read the lyrics from "We are the Champions of the World by Queen and then click on the link at the bottom of the post. I promise you, it will be worth it!

I've paid my dues -
Time after time -
I've done my sentence
But committed no crime -
And bad mistakes
I've made a few
I've had my share of sand kicked in my face -
But I've come through

We are the champions - my friends
And we'll keep on fighting - till the end -
We are the champions -
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions - of the world -

I've taken my bows
And my curtain calls -
You brought me fame and fortuen and everything that goes with it
I thank you all -

But it's been no bed of roses
No pleasure cruise -
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race -
And I ain't gonna lose -

We are the champions - my friends
And we'll keep on fighting - till the end -
We are the champions -
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions - of the world -
