I will look back and laugh

I will look back and laugh

'I will look back at this time and laugh. I’ll wonder why I found it so hard.'


The challenges we are all presented with aren’t there to make us weak. They are merely designed to make us stronger.

That is something I firmly believe.

Don’t try to compare your issues based on other peoples. You are going down this road. You’re not on their road. Something you may find easy may be difficult for them.

Your friends and/or partner will walk by your side for the time they are in your life or will be there unconditionally. And that helps, but just remember it’s your path so though they may help you overcome barriers you are the only one who can clear them.

That is why friendship is so important.

Because no one can tell what anyone is going through unless you tell them, it’s good to offer your ear to listen or even your shoulder to cry on. If you are not going through a problem yourself, it is always good to offer your support to your friends. They will not necessarily tell you that they are going through a hard time because maybe they don’t want to bring you down or they don’t want to hurt you.

But it is always lovely to have a helping hand thrust out unexpectedly.

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson YouTube is full of music that claims to be Native American from North America and usually it isn't. It may be quite beautiful music but it is not what it claims to be. And in my view it does not have the same power.  This is authentic, beautiful and powerful Singer, song writer and guitarist Robbie Robertson was born Jaime Robert Klegerman in 1943, in Toronto, Ontario. He was born to a Jewish father and a Mohawk mother and took his stepfather's last name after his mother remarried.
