HUMBLE THE POET


  1. who promised life would be fair?

    I play a lot of poker. One reason I appreciate the game so much is because you can make all the right calculations, assess all the risk, have the odds in your favour, and still lose; just like life. 

    Somewhere along the lines someone lied to us and said being a good person entitles good things, but the universe doesn’t care. If you really think about it, concepts of good or bad, win and lose make very little sense in the grand scheme of this universe; if anything, things are just happening. 

    We all have a sense of justice, and it really does suck when things don’t go our way; especially when we do everything right. But the reality is that’s how things work. Doing the ‘right’ things increases our chances of things going our way, but doesn’t promise them. The more we understand this, the better relationship we’ll have with reality. 

    Being a loving a partner doesn’t entitle us to reciprocity (that’s a big word for getting some in return). Playing fair doesn’t mean we’ll win. Cheating is only punished when caught. These are common themes in world, from warfare to the workplace, and everything in between. 

    The moment we divorce the idea that we’re owed anything beyond what we’ve already received in this life, we’ve open the floodgates for broken expectations and heartbreak. 

    Everyday is a gift, and we win some, and learn from the rest. Appreciate life for the simple fact that exists, and roll with the challenges that come your way.

  2. Good mor…afternoon #Lima

    #HumbleThePoetPeru (at Barranco - Lima)

     

  3. I hope you all get to create the lives you want.. It takes work and requires a lot of fears to face, but once you start, its even harder to look back.

    24 hrs home in #Toronto and now it’s out to South America to fulfill a promise I made myself a year ago.

    No gigs, work or projects for the next 10 days.. Just discovery (let’s see how long I last)

    Much Love

     

  4. Holding on to a grudge only weighs you down. 

    We’ve all been wronged by somebody, and I’m sure if we’re honest enough with ourselves, we’ve also wronged others as well. Playing blame games, pointing fingers, and feeling like a victim, do very little to help us move forward in life. 

    It’s not easy, it often feels outright impossible. When people hurt us, letting it go is the last thing on our mind. We’ll replay the events, kick ourselves a bit, think negative thoughts of them, and those moments are just full of toxicity, that we may not realize how much we’re poisoning ourselves. 

    I’m not saying everyone deserve forgiveness, or even second chances, if you’ve been reading my stuff, you know I’m not an idealist. I’m saying we deserve peace from holding on to such negativity in our lives. 

    That goes for ourselves as well. We’re going to make mistakes in life, we’ll need to remember to forgive ourselves sometimes too. There’s very little coming from continually beating ourselves over things, so why do it?

    We decide the life we live, and the things we carry with along that journey. Often pain, resentment, blame, shame, guilt, come for the ride, only because we choose not to let go. Life can be lighter, if we allow it to be.
