Hey Lovely People!
I trust you had a great weekend, i did! 😀
As you know, i love to read and i’m a lover of the Arts, not just the literary aspect of it.
The Painting above is by J-M. Basquiat, some of you might’ve heard of him and his works. This one is called ‘The Irony Of The Negro Policeman’.
Now, on to what i intended to share with you today; an excerpt from one of William Shakespeares’ works (one of my all time favorite quotes), JULIUS CAESAR.
Ok then, here goes:
“There is a tide in the affairs of men.
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures.”
I do not know what you can understand from this but here’s what i have for you as you begin a new week: Don’t sit around all the time waiting for ‘fate’ to hand you what you deserve or think you deserve. Recognize the times when fate indirectly urges you to employ ‘free will’ to boldly take these opportunities when they present themselves and take what you deserve. Sitting around doing absolutely nothing doesn’t get you any closer to that goal or dream of yours.
I hope this was as helpful to you as it was to me the first time i read it.
“Enter action with boldness, guys!”
Have a fantastic week ahead,
Peace and Love, Ib.
