Some fate is written… Some must be chosen…

To a certain degree we’re all f*cked until we sit up and make a difference…

You’ve got multiple options as a child, dependent on how you’re brought up, but whether you’re mum and dad are the best or not, you can still find yourself spiralling.

I’ve got loads of excuses to get wasted and throw my life away… and on occasions I do make an effort, but the drive to evolve is something much more en-grained within me…

I want everything I’ve done to mean something… and I’m not talking star on the hollywood walk of fame, there’s enough superficial sh*t in life without focusing on the values that underpin that mentality…

My niece recently went to a friends house and she got upset at the fact her family life wasn’t styled the same, when there was every option to take that path for her parents, now struggling and separated in different countries while dad builds his company… she said, why can’t we just have a family like that, where mother and father live together and we have fun and we’re happy.

It’s so difficult to hear that sort of thing, it’s more difficult knowing that it doesn’t get any better… how do you advise a child who doesn’t understand whats going on, only feeling the presence of their father missing…

The point I suppose is that in some way our fates start out in a format, it’s a format that’s either positive or negative to begin with and we have to ride the wave to success (that’s personal successes i.e. happiness; as opposed to amassing pointless wealth or superficial successes), we have to find a way to discover the real fate within us.

The young lad with the big house and happy parents might as equally turn to addiction as a means of breaking the monotony, just as the same lad starting in poverty might rise up and evolve beyond his humble beginnings as means of changing the future of his family to come… it often works the other way around but this is our fate as set out in the beginning… it does not have to be the way we go.

I’ve seen studies of doctors with the same brain activity as a raging psychopath, the difference being, they couldn’t tell you any instance in life when their childhood was an unhappy one… so even to the point that our mind operates in a pre-destined way leads me to believe that there is some sense of fate in all of us; but how we attune to that, is a mark as to how we live our lives for the long term…

We can’t all get the picture book home life and we can’t always keep hold of those friends we thought would always be there… we don’t necessarily get the lads holidays or the Christmas as it once was… we can’t all obsess about the golden arches, computer games or what crap product Amazon is force feeding us via China, for the margins… but we can choose sack that off and get a life!

You’ve got to get busy living, or get busy dying… choose your stretch…

There’s no secret to life, only that we try… only that we make an effort to be more human. That we look for real interaction, not a thumbs up, or smiley face on the social media feed…

But I suppose whether we decide to do that, to a degree is pre-destined until a catalyst emerges to snap you out of the circle of societal indifference… you can’t always be the catalyst and you certainly can’t be the catalyst for those you wish you could… but in the endeavour, you’re far more likely to set free those around you, who want for something more… so just do that…
