Even the Clouds On a Rainy Day Move On

by Gabriel   Nov 27, 2016

Life is like a ferris wheel it goes in circles and goes down just about as much as it goes up. If that summed up everybody's life at one time or another, then what makes one happier than the other? It's not so much what life makes out of you but what you make out of it.

I know just as well that it can be brutal at times but even the clouds on a rainy day move on and so can we!
You just have to look beyond all of that.
Even on a miserable day you can find joy
Even in death you can find life
Underneath all the ugliness there is beauty, you just have to search for it, grab hold, and never let go.

Don't settle for anything less than being happy
Don't let bad days end badly,
Don't let sad days end sadly,
And don't let life and your excuses tell you you're a victim cause you're not.

Ill-fate and Death find us all eventually
The question isn't how or when
But what will I have made of life
Before then,
What will I have done
With the gifts that I have been given

A captain and crew were at sea when a storm hit
Their first thoughts were not we're all going to die
But what would they be before they all met fate
So they all spent the last little bit being happy and at peace, before it was all too late.

So just remember you as well
Will not know how or when
So treat every moment as precious,
forget what's not important
But remember what is
Otherwise death might just find you,
unfinished, and filled with regrets.
