There are countless posts on my blog written about life; the whys, the what’s and the reasons.
Why do we live?
Why do we suffer?
Why do we die?
What is the meaning of life?
What is it we need to do?
What is the meaning of death?
Reasons to live life to the fullest.
Reasons to stop and smell the roses.
Reasons to not fear death.
I have many questions, I always have, and along the way I feel I received some answers; but then again, more questions came from those answers.
Many times, I publish posts about certain topics and will include a link to other posts for those that might be interested in reading them. My posts about life, the meaning of it, death, learning and other topics from my mind can be found in the category ‘Attitudes, Feelings and Views‘.
I always stated this blog is about me and my life; and many posts I have written mention my faults and weaknesses. I am far from perfect and at one time in my life I thought I was supposed to be. I overcame that thought and realized I just will put forth the effort to be a better person each day. Each day I grow, sometimes just a little bit; but I grow. Each day I move forward; towards being a better person and towards death.
Last month, I published a post ‘Faith‘, where I wrote about the impact of George Michael’s album had on me at a difficult time in my life several decades ago. His album Faith was important to me at a time I needed something to hold on to. During many times in my life, I have needed some sort of faith. Depending on where I was in my live; what trials and tribulations were taking place or the demons I had around me – sometimes faith appeared when I least expected it. Many times, faith was a message that came from someone else and over the course of my life, that message came in the form of a song.
A song from George Michael’s album Faith is titled One More Try and includes the following lyrics –
I’ve had enough of danger
And people on the streets
I’m looking out for angels
Just trying to find some peace
There are things that I don’t want to learn
And the last one I had
Made me cry
This song One More Try is about a relationship with another person. But could it also be about a relationship with God or ourselves?
There are many different teachers in my life who have taught many different lessons.
Times in my life god and believes taught me.
I have taught myself.
My mom, dad, husband and many others have taught me – including George Michael.
And though I have learned many things in life and improved myself and became a better person with each passing day, year and decade – I still have questions.
As I continue to ask the questions and continue to make mistakes and stumble, I am given one more try.
That teacher; whoever or whatever it is – continues to give me one more try.
