Life is our great adventure, our race of obstacles, with all the good and the bad it entails. It is the best we have, it is our great opportunity from the beginning to the end, and there is only one way to take full advantage of it: ENJOYING IT!
Life is sensibility, harmony, beauty, creation, inspiration, communication, expression, fight, magic, challenge, colour, opportunity, vibration, emotion, overcoming, hope, …. a real-time dream that comes true ……. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT.
Life is life!
As worded by Antonio Machado (1875-1939), the Andalusian poet from Seville,
Wanderer, your footsteps are
the road, and nothing more;
wanderer, there is no road,
the road is made by walking.
By walking one makes the road,
and upon glancing behind
one sees the path
that never will be trod again.
Wanderer, there is no road–
Only wakes upon the sea.
As Theodore Roosevelt said in his speech “The Man in the Arena”, delivered at the Sorbonne in Paris (France) April 23, 1910, which you will find in this page:
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
Or, as the poet William Ernest Henley (1849-1903) wrote from his hospital bed in 1875 despite his health problems.
INVICTUS (unconquered, unconquerable in Latin)
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
This poem has become famous because of the film with the same name (INVICTUS) directed by Clint Eastwood in 2009 and starring Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon, based on the book The Human Factor by John Carlin. The book is about Nelson Mandela and his use of the Rugby World Cup of 1995 as an opportunity to unite the country. The origin of the title comes from when Mandela had written the poem on a sheet of paper during his imprisonment, helping him cope with his imprisonment.
We are unique, the product of chance and caprice of our ancestors. What matters is not how we got here; what matters is that we are here and now, and that together, we can achieve our goals. It´s time for action: GO ON, MOVE FORWARD, FIGHT FOR YOUR DREAMS, THE SAND OF YOUR ROLL AWAITS you, DIFFICULT perhaps, BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE.
And remember as John Lennon said in his song Beautiful Boy “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans” … DISENTANGLE from too many activities, FREE YOURSELF, live life,……. And be HAPPY!
Good luck to you always and, that in your planetary experience, you leave more stepmarks than scars. As Antoine de Saint –Exupéry used to say in his book “The Little Prince“… “ the most important is invisible to the naked eye”…
