Here comes the cold taking its grip
The ice bearing down on the window sills
The ground covered in snow
Seeing the breathe leave your mouth
But when your cold ive got this handy tip
Turn up the heating and pray you have paid the bills
When going outside think ” do i really have to go ?”
You don’t want to end up like a penguin from the deep south
Your tires have no control
Your lips turn blue
Eyes transform into a grey looking glass
Winter really is starting to take its hold
Grab someone and hold them before it begins to take its toll
That special someone thats who
Grip tightly and wait for it all to pass
But for now , here comes the cold
Its funny , how a different outlook on life can affect you and those around you. It isn’t always obvious at first and this may mean you go back to thinking how you always have and you may even bring people down. But there is something i want you to think about …. Are you smiling ?
While making other people happy is very important to the social environment that we all live in , it is even more important to possess the ability and the courage to make ourselves smile. Sometimes other people will abandon us , will let us down and will try their hardest to make sure that we never want to smile again. But why give them the satisfaction ? Something as simple as a truly meant compliment or a helping hand without being asked can make someone’s day and mean that they in turn help others.
Im not saying go round all the time jumping and giving people hugs ( although i do wish there was more people like that ) all im saying is that walking round with a rain cloud over your head only leads to one thing …. Continual unhappiness.
So how do you get this “Different Outlook”?
Well that can only be answered by yourself. For me personally i needed to get away . Get away from the situation that had caused me not to be myself in the first place. I took a two week holiday/vacation to America to see my good friend Mitchell , in that time not only did i see amazing things , i let go of the things that was hurting me , and started to feel free. Since i came back i looked towards the future and set myself solid goals to what i wanted to achieve in my life , and made a plan of how i was going to get there.
Im not saying its going to be easy , and im certainly not saying its going to happen overnight , but its more than possible when your not even looking for one you may find a catalyst ( i did) that makes the final part of the process oh so easy.
Take a look at your life, how you are acting , and decide if its the real you . If not why not show the world how amazing you really are ?
