True Grit. A great film of which the re-make i prefered although my Grandad did love the John Wayne Version. i wish he could have seen the Re-make, The Dude [jeff bridges ]Turned Gun Slinger.
Anyways where does it come from True Grit, that unyielding determination?
Does it depend on your circumstances, for example you may find yourself in a tight spot, a death defying predicament! where-in you have no option but to give your all. some may give more than others & survive, where others may be Killed.. but that is an extreme war-like Example.. but me thinks? the will involved may be the same!
What grabs us at a particular time in our life to strive and never give up? why do we then sometimes also give up? exchanging a dream for a Mundane Life where only misery is bred (yurk!)
If you have a dream & you follow that dream through, hail and wind, with the odd ray of Sunshine for several years then start to give up, why? we all have dreams, the greatest dream being of Love? ahahh!?! .. a sudden epiphany!! Sometimes in this life it just may be easier to have a dream about living in a big house or one day buying a fancy sports car, than the dream of finding & bieng with the love of your life.
A materialistic, non sentient purchase, is more attainable for many in the west, than one day encountering the Love of Your life Or Living and waiting for the moment when! you will meet again & the 2 halfs become whole. The moment of that Destiny joining! As the time finally is right.as your true Destiny of love Blossoms.
I have heard throughout life of the “occasional” High school Sweethearts meeting backup again, later on in there Life! Maybe if these HighSchool Sweethearts had Maybe stuck it out? Maybe they would of had a full life of wonderment & Love. but saying that the two sweethearts are getting a second bite of the Pie. A Half of Life, full of Love, is way Better than a Full life with a half too no love! Half a love, too no love is what I see as the normality of the day. for in this world, not much is normal except Divorce, heartbreak, violence and a good dash of Misery.
All is also Dependant on circumstance, or “coincidences” if you believe in that, with a splash of Pluck and courage. why Pluck & courage? maybe you wrote a Song and never sang it too “The one” well maybe you asked a Girl and she said “no” or, “I don’t do Dates” ouch! or possibly you were in a long line of Young Dudes of which, you were the only True one! why? well for one You can imagine growing old with Her or him.(which in my Book is essential) Another reason is you know yourself, Better than your friends or love rivals know themselves. “Love rivals!” now there is A Contradiction, for if you rival someone? then there is no Room in your heart for love!.
I will say this, if usually you are Confident around what ever Gender you find Attractive, and if one day/night ever comes to pass which arises that you become tongue tied, not just with meeting someone for the first time, but Every-time you meet this Someone. Then either you have met your match in the Casanova Stakes or There is a High % that they Could be “The One”
So you Miss the Boat for any number of reasons your ship has Sailed So, you sit back and wait,How long? How Long is a Bit of string? you may even try a Few Hook ups! as you cannot stop living but realistically Most decent Relationships last from 4 years to seven. maybe you make an idiot of yourself, maybe she Finds someone Else or someone else has Found her? But she has made a choice, and if your heart is true you will wish them all the best. As for yourself, well! just keep on living your life ( or try too lol)
For just as one star can lead you home in The blackest of nights! as does one thought of your “one true love” Come back to you. in your Little moments & at times with every Beat of your Heart.
True Courage is to love all equally without hate and True Grit is to be able to stand up to hatred without losing the love you carry within, no matter how lonely you are.
if you believe in the one true Love! Just like in the case of the High School Sweethearts. Well, it might just take several years to reconnect to realize as sometimes we are not meant to be with some one until we are older and Have lived.
Peace with Kisses That is how I roll …
