In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Silver Screen.”
“Time flies.” That’s what all the people say.
It matters not where you plan on going or where you think you’ll stay,
it matters not where you were last week or where you’ll be next year,
it matters not where your demons hide or where you’ve shed your tears.
It matters not where you’ve planted your dreams or where you think you are.
All that matters are the hands you hold as you gaze up at the stars.
So as time recedes before your eyes like the ocean swallowing the shore,
take the time to gaze at thoughtless clouds, wending across the sky and just breathe…
Having talent is like having blue eyes. You don’t admire a man for the colour of his eyes. I admire a man for what he does with his talent.
We can try to avoid making choices by doing nothing, but even that is a decision.
We live today in a world in which nobody believes choices should have consequences. But may I tell you the great secret that our culture seeks to deny? You cannot escape the consequences of your choices. Time runs in only one direction.
Stephen L. Carte
Living with integrity means: Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships. Asking for what you want and need from others. Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension. Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values. Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe.
