LESSONS FROM BOWTIE'S JOURNEY - "GUNS AND ROSES"

Posted on September 15 2019

GUNS AND ROSES

  

SOME YEARS AGO, THE R&B GROUP NEW EDITION MADE A SONG ENTITLED “CAN YOU STAND THE RAIN”.  ALTHOUGH THEY WERE SPEAKING SPECIFICALLY ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN WOMEN AND MEN, THE POINT OF THE SONG IS VALID IN LIFE.  THE CHORUS SAYS:

 

 

 

“SUNNY DAYS, EVERYBODY LOVES THEM, BUT TELL ME BABY CAN YOU STAND THE RAIN”.

 

AT THE VERY CORE OF THESE WORDS THEY ARE SAYING THAT LIFE IS GOOD RIGHT NOW, BUT CAN YOU HANDLE WHEN THINGS ARE NOT GOING WELL BETWEEN US?  IF YOU HAVE THE MENTAL UNDERSTANDING OF THIS TRUTH AND ARE HONEST ENOUGH WITH YOURSELF TO SIMPLY ACCEPT IT, THEN WE WILL BE ABLE TO SUSTAIN A SOLID RELATIONSHIP WITH ONE ANOTHER.

 

PURSUING A DREAM IS EXACTLY THE SAME.

 

HAVING A DREAM YOU ARE PURSUING IS A RELATIONSHIP LIKE NONE OTHER.  UNLESS YOU HAVE DONE THIS BEFORE, IT IS DIFFICULT TO FATHOM HOW GREAT OF A COMMITMENT IT PLACES UPON YOUR LIFE.    IF YOU TRULY BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH, THEN A DREAM IS A LIVING, VIABLE ENTITY.  THE ROAD TO GETTING THEIR IS BUMPY AND FULL OF POTHOLES.  IT CAN BE DISAPPOINTING AND VERY LONELY.  FOR ME, EMBRACING THE DISAPPOINTMENTS AND LONELINESS, AS WELL AS THE SUCCESSES, WORKS BEST FOR ME.  I ACCEPT ALL OF IT!  THE PROCESS IS SWEETER TO ME, BECAUSE OF THE SUNSHINE AND THE RAIN.

 

I CONTINUE EVOLVING BECAUSE OF THIS CYCLE.

 

 

DREAMS ARE JUST THAT, ALIVE!!!

 

THEY ARE ALIVE WITHIN YOUR MIND, BODY AND VERY SOUL.  DREAMS ARE CONCEIVED, NURTURED AND LIVING WITHIN EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US, IF YOU CHOOSE TO MAKE THEM YOUR REALITY.  EVERY ARTIST THAT I SELECTED THROUGHOUT THE COURSE OF WRITING THIS BOOK IS A DREAMER AND A TESTAMENT TO THE FACT THAT LIGHT EXISTS WITHIN EVERY PERSON.  THEY ARE SHINING EXAMPLES OF WHAT FAITH, CONFIDENCE, PERSEVERANCE AND DEDICATION TO ACHIEVING CAN DO WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF YOUR LIFE.  EMBRACE THIS TRUTH AND MAKE IT YOUR OWN.  DO NOT ALLOW LIFE TO GET IN THE WAY OF YOUR LIFE! 

 

ENJOY YOUR DAY AND GOOD LUCK ALONG YOUR PERSONAL JOURNEY.

PEACE AND NAMASTE.
