Looking for love?! Look No further..

IMG_4744

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.

To Self Medicate Or Not? Sleepless Nights..

img_0533

Should I sip this morphine or just lay here in vain 
Awake through the night sleeping 9am till midday
Is it the pain or just my mind playing tricks playing games
Games of cat and mouse chasing thoughts away
Back fourth up down, round and round my mind keeps on spinning 
Like a hamster on a wheel my thoughts keep on running
No shut down no off switch, no good night I’ll see you in the morning 
The dark silent room awakes it, I’m saying good night she tells me good morning 
Throw the pain in on top, oh it’s one big lovely mess in a blender 
Blitzing the concoction, today to the morphine should I surrender
So much pain, silently rocking eyes closed I try to meditate 
Deep breaths in and out holding out before I self medicate
Maybe I’ll just lay here deep in thought and write
Till my bodys so spent till the birds are tweeting till I see daylight
Maybe.. Maybe not

Selfishness or Selflessness

img_0518

Do we need to need to be more selfish 
Or do we need to be more selfless
Somewhere torn in between two states of being 
Never truly being either just hovering uncomfortably between it seems 
Still to be seen is all we want, forgoing forfeits 
Misfits, forfeiting our needs casting doubt upon ourselves
Selflessly misguiding the truth placing dreams upon shelves
Reaching high selfishly laying traps hammering nails 
Hanging in the balance a spectrum of living both selfishly and selflessly
Selfishly selfless or selflessly selfish, in complete unison is this even a thing?

Life is what you make it

Life is what you make it

Grasping with two hands take it

They say the grass is not always greener

However it’s as green as you desire 

Be the light, be the joy in your day

Be the laughter, be the sun in your grey

Seeking perfection perfectly blinded by the lights

Bright lights skyscrapers and expensive sights

Caged by life animals in a petting zoo 

Vultures circling scrapping for food

Who’s really on show is it the animals 

Or those looking in fretting the decimals

Life is what you make it

There’s Only One Opinion That Matters.. Yours!

The only opinion that matters is yours. If you fuel your journey on the opinions of others you will run out of gas
Be your wonderful self quirks and all. People will either love you for who you are or they won’t. It’s that simple really, there is no rock science or fancy formula to get people to see you for who you really are. You can only be yourself. 

You can’t control what people think of you. The moment you start focusing on trying to get people to like you, or focusing on people’s opinion of you, your life will become a mental tug of war of people pleasing and constant worrying. You know yourself better than anyone, work on the things you need to, remove any destructive thoughts and behaviours from your life because ultimately these are things that will make you not like yourself. 

The faster we stop caring about the opinion of others the faster we actually take action instead of being paralysed by constant worrying and questioning of ourselves. We always focus on the bad which does not help us. Person A thinks you’re the scum of the earth but Person B thinks you’re the best thing to walk it, who’s right? It’s just opinions based on perspective and past experiences but no one can say what’s true of you other than you. No one can tell you what or who you are, the only opinion that matters is the opinion you tell yourself, the opinion that you actually believe. 

Don’t let someones negative opinion of you become your reality by focusing energy on it. Just remember people are entitled to their opinion but that all it is, an opinion.
