Last night, I was not having a good night and, as a result, I had trouble going to sleep. And, I kept reading about events happening in Paris, London, Russia, Iran, Germany, China, and in the USA. until I managed to work up a high state of anxiety and despair. And, somehow, when I read this poem, I calmed down. So, I am posting it here, in case you might need to calm your soul. And then this morning, I resolved to beat “death in life”. To live while I am alive, no matter what. In other words, let go. These are things that are beyond our control. Beyond my control, at least. I will do what I can. But, maybe the best some of us can do is to live life while we are alive. Many thanks to my friend who posted this piece on social media. She often knows just what to say in her postings. (I think.)
I have friends who have smoked for years. Its effects are clearly showing.
I have friends who have drunk alcohol frequently. Its effects are clearly showing.
I have friends who have used drugs often. Its effects are clearly showing.
I have friends who have followed an unhealthy lifestyle and eating habits. Its effects are clearly showing.
I also have friends who have followed a healthy lifestyle including eating healthy and exercising regularly. Its effects are clearly showing.
It is up to you how you live your life but remember that around 40 no makeup or spandex will hide your lifestyle.
