There are no rewinds in life. So it makes it intense to get everything right first time. But everybody has something they still need to ‘perfect’ or for use of a better word, make right. 

Everyone messes up, though they may be good at hiding it. 

If you have a plan, you can’t always stick to it. There are detours and interruptions that this life will give you and we may never get back to the place we left from, again. But that’s Ok. 

The worst thing in life is standing still. 

When it’s rushing by I know that we all complain that it’s going too fast but at least you are moving forward, with every step. We’d be in a lot more trouble if time just stopped dead, although we may wish for it to. You’ve got so much to do and too little time?

Everybody’s been in that position and y’know what? If you just prioritise; write a list with the most important things you have to do today in red or capital letters, then you can feel the satisfaction of crossing it off when you’ve done it. Don’t do a job half-heartedly though. Time restraints are there to push you not to weaken you.

Don’t treat yourself too harshly if you don’t live up to your own expectations (which are all that matter) or act in the way you wish you had. Why am I saying the way you treat yourself? Because that’s what it should be, taken literally. A treat.

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.

He had his earliest exposure to music at Six Nations of the Grand River First Nation , Ontario where he spent summers with his mother's family. He is best known for his membership in The Band.
