"Life is an opportunity.
An unimaginable gift.
And we should treat it that way every day.
Because when the last of these days is suddenly taken from us, what will be left is what we did.
Not what we meant to do.
Not what we thought about doing.
But what we did".
- Melody Beattie, Author "The Grief Club"
Well it's not to show you how brilliant I am, because I'm not. And it's not because my favourite topic is music, because it's not. And it's not because I'm running out of discussion topics, because I'm not.
The reason I have told you about the songs is because I am WORKING BACKWARDS. I am telling my STORY..... BACKWARDS.
I am telling my story into the future and as I tell it then what I am telling you becomes an EXPERIENCE. An experience is in the PAST, no? Otherwise I wouldn't have experienced it. In my book I call it the FUTURE PAST. To explain...... As I am typing this BLOG thingie I am typing into my future. But once I have typed the words they are no longer the future because I have completed the EXPERIENCE. This last line that I have just written is now PAST, a past experience. Do you GROK it? Pretty simple really. So where is the PRESENT TIME. Well the PRESENT has got to be a FREEZE FRAME, a MOMENT in time. The present is in between the PAST EXPERIENCE which I have just completed typing and the FUTURE which I am typing into, no?
Every single one of us has a STORY. Not necessarily the one you are living. In fact that is very unlikely. But each of us has a story inside us, in the same place as our DREAMS. Some dreams will be the actual story themselves. But guess where they are and who has them?
WooooHooooo, weeeelll doooone dot. Correct. Mister SomeOne Out-There has them inside of YOU. Those STORIES, those DREAMS are a part of you. They are your MIND!!!!!
YOUR STORY (or DREAM) is a part of who you are, a huuuuge part of your one and only life. Your STORY is locked up inside you and will probably stay there, and more than likely will die with you. Mmmm Hmmm. Sad huh? What a waste of a good story. A story that probably everybody on this Earth place would love to hear. A story that might help us, a story that might make us laugh, or cry. YOUR STORY.
EVERY SINGLE LIVING DOT HAS A STORY. Some of us already have some of it in our PAST. Most of us have it in our FUTURE.
The FUTURE PAST. That's where your STORY is.
Pretty simple really.............
