Navigating The Storm...

Things in this life are never certain. The choices we make are truly our own. The end result is usually out of your control. These are simply facts… Like it or not we must accept that.. But just because it is that way, doesn’t mean you have to leave your life to chance…

Everyone has heard the old adage… You get what you put into this life… It’s a simple saying.. Just a filler for a conversation.. Or an observation.. Much like that of the adage… Everything happens for a reason… In this life, is this true?? I’ll leave that one up to you…

So where is this leading? Nowhere quick… Unfortunately there is no guide to life…Or fortunately if you like to options at your disposal.. Its hard to wrap your head around the bigger questions in life.. And at times its even harder to comprehend the small ones from time to time… Inevitably we all face times in which we are just…. Lost..

This ocean is a fickle one… The tides seem to shift on a whim… It’s maddening.. It’s enjoyable… It’s every emotion ever conceived.. And then some… It’s a ride… At times your riding high.. Everything is within sight.. At other times the undertow pulls you down.. To the darkest regions of your mind.. It is a struggle that repeats with time…

The life line your searching for may come as a surprise.. Or not at all.. It really seems like all is left to chance… But is it? Isn’t the great thing about life in general.. Is that at any given moment you can take action.. Since there is no set path, one can make their own… It just takes conviction.. A will to press onward.. I know that things are just overbearing.. Atlas isn’t the only one holding the weight of the world on his shoulders.. But.. This is what makes this life so great.. The harder it is.. The sweeter the reward..

As I’ve said before… The actions we take directly influence our outcomes.. Every little thing has a tendency to shape you.. The mind is likely the most treacherous battlefield on the planet.. It has a way of undermining you.. You blinding you… Of uplifting you… And controlling you… I know this are things you guys already know… And I know that sorting all of the things flying around on this battlefield is no easy task….

But isn’t this chaos something we have a subconscious need for? Isn’t what you use to base our actions off of? This unbridled chaos is what leads to creativity, bold moves, sets plans in action, solves our problems, and creates some new ones.. For those that love the drama this life always seems to lie before us…

To truly understand oneself.. If this is even possible.. You know how to cope with this.. Everyone seems to do it.. And we all seem to have our own ways of doing it.. I’ve covered this already though…

Just remember that no matter chaotic the storm… No matter which way the tide turns… You still have some form of control.. And in some strange sense.. It can be rather enjoyable.. As this is what makes us human…

As Always... Knock Hard... Life is Deaf...
