You Haven’t Lived Life If You Haven’t…

You haven’t lived life if you haven’t found love,
and when it comes to love don’t wait, take your chances
or you will be too late.
You will later regret your wait.
As life comes, be strong
Face the changes.
Make wise decisions.
That was the past, this is now.
Don’t let people drag you down
No one is perfect
but you have to do what feels right.
Sometimes it might feel wrong but it might be right.
Don’t let other people guide your life
This is your life
Not theirs
Control is the key
Remember, don’t look back
That is the past
This is now

Read the above one more time and really soak it in.

Now, I have known many adults that have struggled with the idea of love and the meaning of life. The words shared here are quite profound and state a very strong case on how to approach both life and love.

Would you believe me if I told you the above was written by a child?

When I got home from work last night, my 10 year old son was in his bedroom busy working at his desk. I asked him what he was doing and he said he was writing.

He does a lot of writing. Songs. Poems. Short stories.

Over the last year or two he has written some great pieces. When I read the piece above that he wrote last night, I was amazed at how deep and profound a lot of it really is – and knew that I needed to share that with all of you.

What do you think?

Share your comments here and I will be sure to let him know what people thought!
