The Tapestry of Life!

"The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing" Marcus Aurelius


I guess when you think about what Marcus Aurelius states above, it is rather true. When dancing, the flow is smooth, in sync with a rythem and no flaws. Wrestling on the other hand is brutal, painful, vague on actions... More like the lives we live.

My point is rather simple. This year has been a roller coaster ride. Always assuming things will be in place and it will work itself out right, well, it surely does not go down that path as I expected and working at it requires more personal ingenuity.

All I am saying is that life as it may be in my eyes is not bad at all, but needs attention to head in the direction I choose it to be. Decisions that are not always easy and could have a detrimental turn if not thought off properly. Yes, I have made many mistakes in my life, all of which I am accountable for and have dealt with the consequences.

I have this friend who asked me on several occasions, "why are the good ones being punished?" truly I cannot answer this question, the next response was, "why does the bad people get off easy?" again, I can speculate that it may seem easy to them as they really dont care much about the things they do, whereas, the good take time to analyze their faults and dwell in them.

Just a few things to place my thoughts as they matter to me.

I saw this on the bookshelf at Bobby Cadillac's the other night. "The days come to us as a riddle and answers are not handed out with our birth certificates" I wish I had answers for that question too, but evil seems to prosper because the earth is the devil's playground. When you feel that way, look up, you'll find Him.
