The Quadology (The 4th one) The answer Lies within Ferrari & other stuff (26-october-2007)
This is the final blog i grabbed off my myspace page.
Cos i feel like it im going to write a blog im not quite sure whats going to be in it yet but you get that. but anyway over the last few months a fair few things have been going on in my life and alot of its been quite confusing but its alright cos ive leart a fair bit from it.
im gonna start with a song thats realy challanged me over the last while The songs called the Answer Lies within by dream theater and i think the lyrics are prity challlanging and self explanitory so i put a few of them below
Where do you belong
Don’t be afraid
You’re not the only one
Life is short
So learn from your mistakes
And stand behind
The choices that you make
Face each day
With both eyes open wide
And try to give
Don’t keep it all inside
You’ve got the future on your side
You’re gonna be fine now
I know whatever you decide
You’re gonna shine
Don’t let the day go by
Don’t let it end
Don’t let a day go by in doubt
You’re ready to begin
Don’t let a day go by in doubt
The answer lies within.
one of my favorate lines is Life is short so learn from your mistakes. cos particualy as a christain i believe that here on earth is where we grow as people cos wisdom and knowlage come from experiance and many of the good times and particuly trials we go through here on earth so therell probably never be another chance to gain knowlage and wisdom from what were going through at any point in time no matter how hard it may be. so thats why we should face each day With both eyes open wide. and try to learn as much from what life throws up as possible.
Another reason that i realy like this song is that it has a very simmalar theme to my fav bible verse Ecclesiastes 9:4-11 just in the whole way that life is short so we should make the most of everyday and all it brings
4-6 Still, anyone selected out for life has hope, for, as they say, “A living dog is better than a dead lion.” The living at least know something, even if it’s only that they’re going to die. But the dead know nothing and get nothing. They’re a minus that no one remembers. Their loves, their hates, yes, even their dreams, are long gone. There’s not a trace of them left in the affairs of this earth.
7-10 Seize life! Eat bread with gusto,
Drink wine with a robust heart.
Oh yes—God takes pleasure in your pleasure!
Dress festively every morning.
Don’t skimp on colors and scarves.
Relish life with the spouse you love
Each and every day of your precarious life.
Each day is God’s gift. It’s all you get in exchange
For the hard work of staying alive.
Make the most of each one!
Whatever turns up, grab it and do it. And heartily!
This is your last and only chance at it,
For there’s neither work to do nor thoughts to think
In the company of the dead, where you’re most certainly headed.
11 I took another walk around the neighborhood and realized that on this earth as it is—
The race is not always to the swift,
Nor the battle to the strong,
Nor satisfaction to the wise,
Nor riches to the smart,
Nor grace to the learned.
Sooner or later bad luck hits us all.
Another thing that has challanged me is another song The best of you by the foo fighters. Cos i know in my life over the last year or so ive fallen into the habit of being realy busy and probably doing to many things and because of this theres a lot of stuff i havent been putting my absolute best effort in and ive realy been challanged that cos oftern you only get one attempt at something you should try to give it your best. But there is another side to this. Tonight i was watching a doco on Enzo Ferrari mainly cos dad was and i walked passed and thought it was intresting. He was a man with great passion for building cars but the doco is all about his life and how because he was so passionate about his cars alot of other parts of his life like his family and friendships suffered greatly. and he ended up with alot of regrets. So i just see it as a great challange to not only be passionate and give our best. but to be passionate and give our all in the areas that are going to matter most in our lives
Well i think that that is well and truly long enough and i hope if you have read this far you have got something out of it and if you enjoy it ive written a couple of others as well.
and feel free to let me know what you think about it all
