a lil lesson

I understood something today. I understood, that done right, a day can be more important, more life changing, than a year.

I now know that the most amazing things are sometimes hidden in the mundane. A little diamond that shines through the darkest of places.

I know that honouring a past is not the same as being a slave to it - rather, to take with you the lessons in your history as you face the path unknown is true respect.

One day, you will wake up, and when you lay you head back on that pillow your whole world has changed completely. Maybe it is because of something different you did. Maybe it is because you didn't change a single part of your routine. Who ever knows?

A life well lived isn't down to the accomplishments you can put down on paper. No one will ever remember that time you got three "À's" in a row. No one will care that you got a first aid award.

They will remember YOU. Your smile. The way you rolled your eyes. Your fear of clowns. The joy you took in the silliest of things, precisely because they *were* silly. Your favourite colour. They will remember rocking out, in true heavy metal style, to a Britney Spears song.

Take a chance.




And let me know how it goes.
