Mixed Signals

Highs and the lows
Ups and the downs.
Feels like fate’s spinning us round and around.
Back and then forth
Good mixed with bad.
Nothings the same, till it feels like we’re mad.
Kissing and fightin’
Kissing and fightin’
Hoping and Dying and Loving’ and Cryin’.
Forcing each win.
Demanding our share.
World dragging us down, we get up on a dare.
Not Looking Back
Not Giving Ground
Living the dream, eking every last pound.
Kissing and fightin’
Kissing and fightin’
Hoping and Dying and Lovin’ and Cryin’.

Stand Tall and Move On

“Don’t ever give up. 
Don’t ever give in. 
Don’t ever stop trying. 
Don’t ever sell out. 
And if you find yourself succumbing to one of the above for a brief moment, 
pick yourself up, brush yourself off, whisper a prayer, and start where you left off.
But never, ever, ever give up.” 

**Richelle E. Goodrich

New Year’s Countdown: Resolution 4

To Make Mistakes:

“Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something. 
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. 
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.” 

**Neil Gaiman
