A Rose once was enchanting

Known for its beauty, representing a deep feeling of warmth.

Bright coloured, it comes in various beautiful different tones.

Red is the most known and wanted, representing a feeling of love.

So strong it can grow even in a concrete jungle and charm us with its beauty.
Surrounded by thorns for protection, such beauty needs to be concealed and protected from predators.

Killed and destroyed by those same who are charmed by its wonderfulness.

It sits now on a table, a fenster.
Mocked by the one who killed it, it is dipped in water. Only to delay the process of decay by nothing else than a selfish feeling.

Beauty is in the living…
Sadness is in the used and killed…

A feeling

A breeze, a sense, something you aren’t quite able to name.

Something that wraps around your soul, your aura. A feeling that is shared by many but unique for each one.

A desire burning inside, fueling on remembrance from an alliance of true feelings.

Profound, fused to you souls it is part of you.

Wishing and wanting to be one again. Times goes on and that feeling grows stronger.

A thought, a telepathic touch is sent into the universe. Hoping that for one moment that sense becomes just as real as you remember it.

Guidance light

A shimmering light shining through the dense canopy.

A star giving not only guidance but also hope.

Lost in the forest the only way out is to follow that instinct, that light that seems to lead the way.

Many have wondered and stepped into the unknown, following only that. Determined to succeed….

Gratefull is the one that finds that star. For he will no longer wonder around, lost in space.

A light. Not too bright but never fading. Shinning and showing the way.

The universe is always ready to give us advice, if only we could listen and believe in it a bit more. Sometimes suffering is needed to proceed, lessons to be learned so growth can take place.

Never give in, never back down. Soul wide open listen to the universe and live to the fullest.
 

Castle on the hill

Far away a house is standing tall, alone on a hill. It has been built strong, like a castle some say.

A house that outstands the elements.
Wind, rain, hail, snow or sun has little effect on it.
A storm might hang above and it will not fall. 

It has taken years to built it and it has grown to be a mighty sight.
Portraying strength, yet some scars can be seen when looked closer and when one looks inside one can feel the loneliness.

This castle represents for many strenght and shelter, but those same ones fail to protect it, fail to take care of it.
It needs attention for it has been neglected for years.
Those habitating it have always considered it to be so strong that simple maintenance work has always been put back.

A crack in a wall.
A roof tile that has sheered off during the last storm is starting to take its toll.

Some day.
Years from now it shall be famous as an historical monument. Thousands will want to see and feel the mighty power it radiated once, many years ago.
Many will invest time and effort, will try to keep the last walls from collapsing. 

For the wrong reason this castle is forced to stay up.
Try and keep it standing, just so more tourist can see it, just so more can make use of it without really carrying or simply let it fall?

Passenger

A train left the station. It has been 38 stops ago since he climbed on.

Now looking outside into the world he sees unknown familiarity. A world that he knows, yet is not known to.

He is but a passanger, he can not control the train for it is driven by forces not known to him.
Some have sat besides him on his lonely seat. Few though and even fewer have stayed for more that one stop.

How he lingers for companion on that lonely ride. He can hear laughs and talking from the other carriages. Some sound so familiar yet, some have even sat in his cariage manny stops back.

Almost 7 stops back one soul has sat in his cariage and has not left since. Sometimes looks outside and asks for comfort around his arms as the world outside is yet to be discovered. But most of the time that soul is exploring the carriage. He looks over and sees the curiosity building up. Knowing that one even that soul will leave and find its own carriage.

Recently someone has stepped in and he hopes for that companion to stay till the last stop. Yet the tracks are bumpy and sometimes discouraging for anyone else that is not used to this lonely and bumpy track. 

Sitting back, he sinks into his seat. Hopes that that force driving this train knows the way and doesn’t drive into a cliff.

Somewhere far away he can see the tracks going up.
Into heaven.
There are yet manny stops until that and the world between seems to change a lot.

A passenger in the train. Not knowing where or when the ride will end. Living stop by stop. Lingering for a smooth companious ride.

This passenger is driven by God 

Just saying…..

Conhecemo nos num dia de inverno a beira mar.
Coincidência acabei por te roubar o lugar no estacionamento.
Nesse mesmo momento
ficamos ansiosos, nervosos.
Sem saber o que esperar
mas começamos a falar.
Ele falava ela escutava. 

Luz, o que vim a ter. Assustado porque nem sempre sei agir.
Sem mentir conto te toda a minha vida.
Dia para dia entras mais em mim. Iluminado, agora sigo acompanho, por vezes ainda assustado.
Mas sempre a saber que posso contar.
Estas sempre ai para me apoiar.

Agora que passou algum tempo, penso e relembro o caminho percorrido.
Admito por vezes deitei quase tudo a perder.
Aprender e reconhecer faz parte. Fechamos quando nao devíamos, falamos sempre e por isso continuamos.
Espero poder sempre resolver para nunca nos perder.

Uma vontade de te segurar, beijar. Desejoso de a vida mudar
poder acordar e deitar todos os dias de teu lado.
Dormir colado, agarrado.
Sentir teu beijo molhado no pescoco pela manhã.
Es a minha rainha.

Devo dizer te mais vezes o que sinto.
Sabes que nunca minto mas por vezes tenho receio,
creio que nao queres ouvir apesar de saber que gostas me ouvir dizer.
Demorei a abrir, a entregar. Pensar que tive receio inicial, agora parece surreal
assim sou, demoro a confiar
mas uma vez que deixo entrar.
Tens tudo de mim.
Contigo ate ao fim.

Imaturo por vezes.
Receoso e medroso pareço uma crianca com medo.
Nao avanco travo, ate penso que estrago.
Reajo a fugir.
Sem na realidade querer ir,
apenas nao sei como reagir.
Mas tu seguras.
Agarras e nao te assustas
embora fiques magoada.
Desculpa se te deixo assustada.

Aprendo contigo como ser melhor. Sinto a tua falta todos os dias, esta parte e a pior
estar longe nao te abraco ao deitar nao te sinto.
Minto se disser
que nao te procuro ao despertar.
O meu primeiro pensamento, estou longe lamento.
Fim de semana e drama,
passar o dia ver a hora passar imaginar como poderia estar.
Fazer te companhia.
Sinto a tua falta sei que sentes a minha.

Time to time your time

Time to re-organize your time.

If you have no time your are either waisting time or not appreciating it for what it is.

There is no timebank, you can’t deposit some of it and claim it back later. Once the minute, hour, day is gone you will never get it back.

It all comes down to priorities.

It is after all your time. Not someone elses.

If you are asked to attend a meeting, course, gathering it is you who is chosing to dedicate your time for that event. 

So chose wisely….

Spend time at home, or go out to a club?

Remember that you won’t get it back and you arent able to devide in two and be in two different places.

Organize your life, your day. Maybe you need to spend less time on PlayStation, Xbox or what ever. Sit down and decide what is most important in your life.

Students that dont find the time for studying but are out all weekend partying…

Men that dont find the time to spend with their wifes and children but go out fishing, motorbike ridding…

Women that dont have time to spend with their husband and children but are out with friends having a few laughs…

Time is gone even before you have a chance to use it. It isn’t something you can grab or buy more… 

It is gone before you have even seen it.

So use it wisely. Do all those things that you like. Just make sure you do it organized so you spend your time with everyone instead of finding excuses all the time…

Go with the flow

It might be true that we need to fight for our dreams and that sometimes, if not most times, that means that we need to go in the opposite direction of the crowd. We need to find our own way, our own path and follow it.

But there will be circumstances that we simply do not control.

Some might be easy to deal it and soon forgotten about but some might seem like an infernal storm hanging above us.


This is the time that we need to decide and choose. Keep going after that goal or give up.

Giving up is easy. To fail is easier, but is that really what you want? After all that hard work?

What if you cant fight that storm? Can’t out run it? 

Dont struggle to do so. Just go with it. Figure out what it is that needs to be done so it passes quicker but don’t run, don’t fight or it might get worse.

A person that is being pulled by the sea has more chances surviving by laying still, going with the flow untill it passes. Struggling will only get him exhausted and kills him.

Ride the storm. What ever it is. Change your mind so you can work on whatever is needed to do so.

Don’t forget your path, goal and once the skies clear… 

Go after it even more hungry to achieve it.

Have faith….

Stand up, dust it off and refocus

Things arent always as simple the seem. And sometimes when you think you are almost there, you are forced to make an unexpected turn.

It might be due to your own actions or someone elses that make you fall. It doesn’t matter who or what to blame.

You fall.

So what do you do?

Blaming everthing and everyone you simply give up? Give up and turn your back on that goal that you were reaching for? Or do you fight back…

Guesss it all depends on how bad do you really want it. Was it merely a wish, some to do like on a “before I die to do list”? 

Or was it a true goal. Something that is part of who you are and what you want to be….

To fall is normal. To fail is natural on the path to success.

If you really want it you’ll work hard for it.

And even when forced to stop temporarily you still need to work for it. Just need to rethink, regroup and replan.

But never give up

When you are down it is vital to look back at the achievements gotten so far. Is important so you don’t stop believing in yourself.

Think to yourself.. how manny times have you fallen and stood back up? How manny times have you managed it work.

As I write this, I cant feel my hands. This set back will put me off competition as bodybuilder that was nearly there.

It hurts and irritates, frustrates me but I simply need to stand up, dust it off and come back stronger.

Never give up

25% motivation 75% dedication

Motivation…. That is all you hear lately.

Get motivated, change your life. Dream big and follow that dream.

But we must not forget about something else that is even more important. Something that without it we could never be able to achieve that dream

See motivation alone is certainly the key to get started. It is what make us want more and try to get more. 

But motivation alone will only get you started, it won’t keep you going.

You can set goals. Wake up in the morning excited about those changes in life. Full of energy you start the day and have made up your mind, today things will start to change because you are motivated.

And then…

And then reality hits you. Life hits you. End of the day you feel tired, exhausted, drained. Last thing you want is to start on that new project of life, that idea that got you so excited…. 

Where is the fuel to get going? You feel or felt motivated enough before but something is missing to keep going.

Dedication….

Dedication is the key to that. It is what keeps you going. 

Dedicate yourself to work on that dream. Be ready to make minor or even major adjustments along the way but stay focussed, dedicated to make it happen.

Doesn’t matter that you have had a long hard day and that you’re tired. Dedication will make you put all of that aside and work on that goal. 

It is what makes you work hard even when there is no one looking, no one looking up to you. You are working on your  goal. Your life depends on it. So make sure there is no excuses.

Commit and dedicate yourself to win. Use that motivation and start the fire within you and use dedication and fuel to keep going.

No matter what your goal is. Use this everyday, all day and eventually life will change for better.
