Never give up!

Never give up!

Today, we have another inspirational post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae. She is a Creative Writing Graduate; you can find her own blog at and I think you will be inspired by Stephanie's first video on YouTube 

Do you take everything at face value? I know I used to.

There’s always a back-story as to why someone’s dressed a particular way or something happens. You may not see it at first, and it may be a part of their life that they don’t want to admit to. Everyone’s going through hard times, but not having the same experiences.

Don’t feel alone, because everyone is going through life at their own pace. Though everything may look fine on the surface, you can never tell what someone’s going through. You don’t know how far someone’s come. You don’t know where they are in their life – whether they’re thinking of giving up or anything. Don’t take everything at face value; there are deeper reasons for everything. Though you may not see them at first, troubles come to make you stronger. That’s what I believe anyway. Because what happens after you have dealt with the situation; you are a stronger person.

So if you’re going through a rough time at the moment, just know that that sun is waiting to shower you in light when you’ve made it through the situation you’re faced with.

You are not briefed on how life will be and how to deal with it, so you’ve got to make it up on the job.

Life turns out based on your decisions throughout. So just because something doesn’t work out the first time, does that mean you give up?

No, I’m sure you’ve given things more than one attempt but why stop there? You can say ‘it’s the last chance’ and then realise how many chances ago you said it for the first time. Life is always changing, just like the world is revolving, so never give up. Things are changing constantly, so it may work out this time. You never know.

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.
