Looking for love?! Look No further..

We must learn to love ourselves before we can love another.
This is a well known fact now.
Knowing our self worth is so important.

So many times in our life we search for a partner, someone to love us, someone to make us happy. We walk into relationships searching for someone to complete us.

We come with our baggage, we come with our expectations and with all these needs. We come and unsurprisingly we eventually have to leave.

Should we not be going into a relationship already happy, already whole. Should a partner not bring additional joy to your life, not the only joy.

At times we get into relationships, two broken beings feeding of each other’s soul. Two stagnant souls you’ll be, stuck in a rut trying to fix each other.

Instead we should focus on being happy whilst single. When alone; this is the time to learn to love yourself, learn to respect yourself, find out what makes you happy, be happy, motivate yourself, dream big, get out of the bed in the morning for yourself. Focus on being the best you.

If you do this, you will not worry about being single, you will not worry about finding a suitable partner. You will understand there is no need to worry.

When you both do unite, you will help elevate each other to the next levels in your lives. You will enhance each other’s happiness. You will build together, you will inspire each other.

Does this mean we have to be perfect before we enter a relationship? No not at all. We just need to love ourselves.

It sounds so basic, but sometimes we don’t realise we don’t love ourselves, until we start loving ourselves.

Is This Life?! There Is Hope..

Living by my own rules I won’t be fooled
Why should you
By a society living to preserve the divide
Aiming to increase the divide 
We’re riding the wave back and fourth like the tide 

I grew in a time when playing outside was life
Now we keep kids inside in fear of a knife 
It this really life? Is this the times we’re living in
Where the young are getting worse and bragging on social media is winning
No activities for the youth because number 10’s cutting funding 
Less parental visibility stuck working double shifts is this living or surviving

The rich complain at the thought of paying more taxes 
Normal folk don’t want to vote as they don’t see the changes
It’s a vicious circle a toxic merry go round, of looking over our shoulder for terrorist jumping at loud sounds

Is there hope for humanity? There must be hope 
If we rise above and transpire to inspire young minds
This isn’t just black or white lives it’s all lives
The youth are the future the future is today’s actions
Today’s actions simply put.. tomorrow’s ramifications

A Response Isn’t Always Needed.. Protect Your Peace

There’s a time and place for everything. 

We have to learn when our input is going to help a situation or make it worse. We have to learn to practice restraint at times. 

Self discipline is a must.

It’s easier to loose control and react to situations adrenaline filled no brain all emotion than to take time to assess a situation before responding. In the heat of the moment this is so hard but something that can be done with practice and awareness. We have to be able to spot our triggers, figure out what ticks us off.

Prevention is always better than cure. Some think silence equates to weakness when in reality it takes so much more strength to remain silent in the midst of a storm.

It’s also good to note that not every situation requires a reaction, have you ever thought for a moment that sometimes this is exactly what people want. Some want to provoke a reaction from you, get inside your mind and steal your peace. This is when having a discerning eye comes in handy. Not everything is always as it seems, peoples motives and intentions are not always clear. This is why we have to learn to rise above all the superficial petty stuff and not be moved by every blowing wind.

The erratic nature of our emotions can be so draining both physically and mentally.

Mental stability can be such a hard thing to achieve, the ability to be at peace and remain at peace regardless or what is going on around us but it is something we all should aim to achieve. 

Don’t let anybody or anything steal your peace. Life is too short.

Peace, Love & Positivity

Regrets 

It’s hard to live a life with no regrets but harbouring regret doesn’t get us anywhere in life.

We all have a past we could reflect on, pinpointing the exact moments when we should have turned left instead of right, spoke instead of being silent, ran instead of being still. 

Hindsight is a beautiful thing

We can look back and use our past to help us make better decisions in our present, we can use it to learn from but dwell on we shouldn’t. There is no growth in simply replaying a regret, we remain stagnant stuck in a place of nothingness as the past no longer exists. 

Do I have any regrets in life, sure I’ve got plenty but I now look at them differently. I’m not denying them but embracing them. I’m learning how to detach myself from my regrets taking only the positives, taking only the learning outcomes. Everything else does not serve to make me a better person but to bring me down.

Dwelling on our regrets is like digging a hole for ourselves and continuing to dig deeper hoping one day to miraculously escape. 

We can not do over any of our past actions all we can do is learn from the past and move on.

It’s A Funny World

They want to see you loose your cool, blow your top loose your rag
Speaking opinions never facts
Facts steadying stacking against them
Lost for words mumbling dazed remembering 

Let your calm unnerve them steady hands ice cold veins
Mask off slitting tyres they’re acting strange
Strange behaviour is now becoming the norm
Everyone wants to be different, who wants to conform 

Trying to find your normal in an abnormal world
Where everyone’s concerned about others tainting characters and telling tales 
Cold world back stabbers naysayers, friends can turn foe super quick 
No thought in a blink of an eye switching clicks

Ride in a lane with the realist beside you  
Loyalty you ride for them they ride for you
Everyone wants to get friendly till the sun rises and alcohol evaporates 
Rolling over to smudged eyebrows no eye contact eyes searching for an escape 

It a funny world we live in
Sometimes you have to stop, laugh and take it all in

Lost In Translation

Mind games why do we play them.
When did life become so complicated where no one speaks the truth, no one says what’s really on their mind, so afraid of the response.

Instead we engage in strategic games of mind chess always considering our next 5 steps. Rarely in the moment we live our present with two hands on the future one foot in the past, hardly taking a moment to relax and actually truly laugh. 

When did life become so complicated, yesteryears childhood freedom a distant memory, now we struggle not to live with constant dread an worry. 

Who remembers when yes ment yes and no ment no, how many wasted hours have we lost trying to translate such simple words into a language we can understand.  

Struggling to comprehend words we look to seek knowledge through body language, X’s and O’s. Struggling to understand messages in this new digital age where everything is emojis and emoticons.

People communicate through statuses, pictures, quotes, gifs so much indirecting but rarely eye to eye speaking.

The simplest of messages are misconstrued, the simplest messages are lost in translation.
In a time where everyone is so easily accessible one of the biggest problems for our generation is miscommunication. 

Constantly miscommunicating.
