Solitude and Life 

Virgobeautys World

Life should come with a sign that reads, “So many obstacles ahead that you shouldn’t even expect a smooth journey.” That sign would be placed just after the “buckle in sign.” And before the “we still haven’t mastered the course.”
Well, life, you come with the continuous lessons of patience, time, acceptance, resilience, and wisdom. I’ve learned that the external route affects the internal atmosphere. Often times, I remember the pain much more than the joys. But, the joys are priceless.
Is it because it’s the part that I wish I was immune too? Is it because no matter how loving and good your intent is, it still can’t be avoided? Does it come so often that I get tired of even questioning it and trying to remedy it? Yes, yes, and you got that right.

There is always a seed of good. Find it and prosper.



“Search for the seed of good in every adversity.
Master that principle and you will own a precious shield
that will guard you well through all the darkest valleys you must traverse. Stars may be seen from the bottom of a deep well,
when they cannot be discerned from the mountaintop.
So will you learn things in adversity
that you would never have discovered without trouble.
There is always a seed of good. Find it and prosper.”

– Og Mandino ~

I am not old . . . I am the fullness of existing



I am not old
I am rare
I am the standing ovation
At the end of a play
I am the retrospective
Of my life as art
I am the hours
Connected like dots
Into good sense

I am the fullness of existing

You think I’m waiting to die..
But I’m waiting to be found
I am a treasure.
I am a map.
And these wrinkles
Are the imprint of my journey
Ask me anything

“I Am Not Old”
