We can’t always control what happens to us in life
We can’t always decide how life will turn out.
We can’t always wish problems away
Or conjure up visions of peace and have it in our palms.
We can’t decide how long our days may be,
Or the years we live on this earth.
We lie when we think we are immortals
Man born of a woman is of few days
Like a vapour in the wind.
But we can control the moments we live in this life.
And I call it our golden moments.
Life can always throw up a punch we least expected
But we can LIVE life the way we want.
By prolonging our golden moments under the sun,
By helping the poor,
By not turning away the needy with empty hands when we can fill it up with wealth
By putting a smile on people’s faces – even strangers
By loving all and despising none.
Then we will have earned our golden moments!
I am so happy to write this post, I’ve missed every one of you my dear friends. My holiday took longer than expected, a few visits from family abroad means I couldn’t blog and had to postpone a lot of work. But I know you guys have been having fun, I’ll join in the party and read as many posts as possible. Above all, I wish you more love, more peace, wherever you are in the world. Have a fantastic weekend!
