Potential & Dreams: “Luck is not surviving what you want, but surviving what you don’t want” Red Band Society E1 S1
I just recently started watching the show Red Band Society. I love quotes and I found two that are amazing in insight from a show about kids dealing with their own mortality.
• “Luck is not surviving what you want, but surviving what you don’t want” Red Band Society E1 S1
• “Maybe we all do die alone, but that doesn’t mean we all need to live alone.” Red Band Society Kara S1
Another amazing quote came from One Tree Hill another show about kids.
“THE DARKNESS DOESN’T HAVE ANY ANSWERS” Quote by Lucas from the show One Tree Hill season 5 E.18
I don’t know how old the writer’s of these show are, but such wisdom in the truths of life.
This one is from me. The hard thing about life is sometimes you don’t understand what living is until you survive tragedy or some kind of loss or failure. You grow and learn from failure and for everyone it is different. Potential and dreams do not have an age limit.
You don’t appreciate what life means, until you understand how much you have to lose. The kicker is I did not understand this, until I grew older and looked back and remembered. I had a lot of loss in my early years, but even so it is only in time I have gain some understanding in the growth that brought me and the heartache.
I just turned 51 and circumstances in my life have put me in the position of starting over, learning who I am again now that life has change so irrevocably and redefining myself—Its not as easy in some ways this time around as was in the early years, because I know so much and my body works against me instead with me as it did in my youth. My mindset and outlook is also different. My mind is young and so are my dreams even now. What is age, but wisdom? You either learn and grow from it or you give up and fall into the negative and stop trying or become bitter. I refuse to stop trying and fight not to become bitter or jaded, because as has already been stated “Luck is not surviving what you want, but surviving what you don’t want” Red Band Society E1 S1.
I am 51 growing and hoping… I have a dream as I did when I was young, as long as I am still in this life cycle. Actually my dreams are more define then they were in my youth, because I have experienced life. I wish I knew all that I know now, when I was in my youth. The potential that I missed then, but I am still striving for now despite the decreasing odds. I hope for the best and try to salvage the rest.
