Situations arise at any time

Situations can arise at any time.

You can never be sure when something will strike.

You can be dealing with a big problematic event when little ones can occur and you think it’s just to rub it in. I know it can feel burden-heavy. But that’s Ok. Feeling weighed down is not good for you, so try to take everything one step at a time. But I know it’s a real pain when everything comes at the same time. That’s how life seems to work; I see it as a positive thing. 

When you’re in the midst of things; challenges and the like, problems that would have otherwise held you up are accomplished without much thought. You don't even recognise how much you accomplish. The things that would usually swamp you, you just do because there's no way around it. 

So at hard times give yourself some credit. You've probably done something that you thought you weren't capable of years ago. Maybe you're finding things you used to do with ease a bit of a struggle now - that's Ok. Things change. And just because you can't do something as easily as you used to doesn't mean your inferior or not useful anymore - it just means it's time to slow down.

Having an overall plan is a good thing

Having an overall plan is a good thing, like where you want to go and what you want to do in life, but planning everyday in intimate detail is a downfall in my eyes. You can't account for everything that occurs in life. You might have to put plans on hold for a while, because something different has happened now. 

Things arise all the time that you never thought could/would happen. Life is not always under our control. And that is frustrating. And we can't always do much to change that. Accept life as it comes and treat any little bump as you would naturally. Don't let it change who you are.

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.
