'Its a crazy crazy, world out there'

The world has taught us to be so many things. And whilst being these things it becomes easy to forget that we don’t have forever to be them.

I think of life as 100 years, planning short term goals to 25 and life goals to 40.  Family goals to the big 50, and retirement goals at 65. But all we’re living on is expectation.

Tragedy was all I needed as a reminder that we are ALL on borrowed time. Every day you open your eyes and you’re lucky enough to live another day in this crazy crazy world, is another day you have to squeeze the life out of it, because it can so easily squeeze the life out of you.

The world is beautiful and provides us a blank canvas to draw any journey we fancy. But at the fingertips of every artist, is a the opportunity to make mistakes, and not all mistakes can be erased.

'We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name, In life we loved you dearly; In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone. For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, Your love is still our guide. And though we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same. But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again'.

"Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony." - Thomas Merton

You don’t need to practice yoga everyday. But when life gets overwhelming, you might wish you had.
