There are a few people from the past of whom I think highly. One of them is William Shakespeare. It is interesting to note that almost every word he wrote, he did not write for posterity, rather he wrote for his players; the favorite people in his life, his fellow actors. And yet his words have endured.
I think about that occasionally, how things turn out in our lives. How we do one thing but another thing ends up happening (sometimes good, sometimes bad).
All the world may be considered a stage where we ”go forth’ in our lives but most of us, including yours truly, are thrust rather abruptly onto the stage of life, ill prepared and handed a bunch of props, told to go perform, leaving it up to us to figure it all out.
So how’s your performance going?
Speaking for myself, well, I decided some time ago to take charge.
“As playwright and director in the play called ‘My Life’!
I’ve determined to give myself the staring role.
I will seek direction,
ask for assistance to secure needed props,
and surround myself with a strong supporting cast.
I will try to make my ‘play of life’ as successful as can be.
And hope for good reviews
and many, many repeat performances.”

And if I might recommend, I cannot think of a better person than yourself to become director in charge of the play called “Your Life”. I think you’ll also make a great playwright in that role as well. I’d certainly give it some thought if I were you, after all it’s your life we’re speaking of here! Nice to be charge of things that matter, like YOU!
Thanks for stopping by, hope your having a great weekend.

Hi lovely friend!Blessed are those who can plan their lives. Life is so full of unexpected events. You try to take charge of your life, something happens and shatters everything. Since childhood i have noticed that. Still trying.
Have a lovely Sunday. Penny
I am, Ute, as you noticed I am mostly offline reading, mostly anyway!
If the world is a stage, where does the audience sit? 😉
A great idea to take control and start being producer, director and lead in your own play.
Hey a good point Alastair, (ha,ha). Yeah producer would be good too, but of course they’re usually the ones with the funds! 🙂
Yeah, I need a good producer
AnElephantCant pretend he’s an actor
And his scripts are considered just junk
He hasn’t the skill
To thrill folk like Will
It’s so difficult to find a role for his trunk
Ah, anElephan’tcant really think that. He is much too modest regarding his skills, at least in my humble opinion! xo
Even I wish to take charge of my own life
It does take some practice and determination and of course some disappointments but you just keep going and it happens, dear friend!
Thank you, dear friend 🙂
