Time is an unfaithful lover; escaping like sand grains at the merest of movement. There was no yesterday, my dear, and will be no tomorrow- all is now, this second, this moment- seize it and embrace it. Don’t be hesitant, m’darling, it’s a fool’s trait. Be proud of your mistakes- know that you’ve learned from them and be humbled by your victories and know you could have achieved more. Don’t clutch at that last straw. Reach out, make the effort and climb up again- I know you can.
Be a hero in all’s eyes and servant in your own and as Constantin Brancusi rightly said, “Create like a god. Command like a king. Work like a slave.”
