Chewed Up & Spat Out

Blood suckers sucking till there’s nothing left
Stealing from your soul so brazenly we can’t even call it theft

No skin off nose, I’ve seen friends turn foe
I’ve had demons in my bed, devils play with my head 

I’ve been chewed up and spat out, left in the cold
I’ve had users call me brother but when shit gets real they fold

No holes barred when you’re at your lowest loosing your mind, you’ll see who’s got you and who’s around just to have a good time

They’ll dance with you in the club neck shots with you at the bar
But these words no action folks won’t be there to help pick up the pieces when you’ve taken it too far

I’ve been used mislead treated like I was dead, by a few fake friends who wanted my head 

They’ll laugh at your downfall kick you when you’re down, they’ll even rub salt in your wounds
They’ll spread propaganda they’ll try and tarnish your name like fake news

But I truly thank you, i’m so grateful now I can differentiate between what’s fake and true 

My circle decreased in size but increased in quality, real friends real love
They’ll pick you up when you’re down correct you when your wrong go beyond and above

They want to see you win because when you lose they lose
Through thick and thin the good times the bad and the ugly, real recognise real you can’t pick and choose

People wonder why I’m so happy why I’m so grateful for the friends and family I have in my life. Why my friends are my family and my family are my friends. Why I’d do anything for those I love.
They’ve seen me at my worse, but they stuck by me. They loved me enough to know my mistakes do not define me. 

They saw me for me. 

Sometimes you have to look back at the dark times to really appreciate how far you’ve come. To be grateful for where you are and where you no longer are.

In life we meet people who match the mindset we have at that stage of our life, as you grow and your mindset changes they can not come with you unless they too are willing to grow. At the time you may be hurt and not understand but as the years go by and they become a distant memory you realise why they couldn’t come with you. 

Be grateful for the lessons, be sorry for any hurt you caused, forgive any wrongs against you but never regret a day. 

Life is a learning curve. You live and you learn.

Ignite your fire

Happiness is a state of mind another can enhance it but another can never create it. 

Happiness resides within all of us sometimes laying dormant awaiting to be awakened awaiting to be stirred. Once resurrected and recognition of self occurs one can never go back to being the same. 

When you understand that happiness begins with self, that happiness is something that comes from within created by the mindset we hold how can you ever look at life the same way. 

It’s impossible.

We all have a light within us, we just have to learn how to open up and let our light shine through. If it takes someone to bring your light out that’s okay but just understand the light was always there, all they did was ignite a fire that had been put out by life and the troubles and tribulations it can bring us.

This world can be a cold place at times, don’t let it dim your light or put out your fire.. regardless.

Afternoon musings: Don’t overcomplicate life..

Don’t overcomplicate life, do the things you want to do. Time waits for no one this is why it’s important to live in the moment doing whatever you want to do, doing whatever makes you happy. 

We have a tendency to look out for everyone but ourselves at times, we do things to appease others, not to upset others and in the end it is us ourselves who actually suffer. 

It’s time to stop it’s time to start thinking about your own happiness for once. In the long run this stance will have a more positive effect on those in your life. When we do things we don’t actually want to do we do them half heartedly. We should tackle life with our full self. 

Life is for living not half living

Why Be A Pawn When You Can Be A Queen?

Do not be a pawn in life sacrificial bait in the game 
Being played with, moved left right no two days ever the same
Be strategic be deliberate be purposeful 
Why be a pawn when you can be a queen 
Smart strong and bold able to move anywhere on the board 
The commander the protector the overseer 
Why be a passenger when you can be the driver take the wheel change direction go off course
Is it really off course if it’s your course the course you’ve chosen 
You are free to play your own game not be part of the game 
The moment you take control nothing is the same

Enjoy the moments

Croatia: 15th July 2017
Living in the moment is the best feeling in the world. The feeling where nothing matters just that present moment and those in it. There’s a freedom to life when you stop worrying, stop caring about what other people think or being swayed by the opinions of others, opinions which in fact are actually irrelevant. We have to remember an opinion is something an individual has a right to have but that’s all it is; an opinion, not fact and definitely not something that you have to make your reality. 

To live in the moment for me is to live for yourself, it’s doing whatever makes you happy. Sometimes we overthink life so much we fail to enjoy it, we spend so much time stressing about pointless stuff when there is a whole world out there filled with endless opportunities. 

Life is about being happy, spreading love and loving to the fullest without any limits.

The moment you actually allow yourself to be happy by releasing all things taking away from your happiness is the moment you open yourself up to love everyone, if you love the world the world will love you back. 

I’ve seen with my own eyes the pulling power of happiness, the magnetism of a smile, it has the power to change everything. Your reality around you adapts to the energy you yourself are giving off. If you’re miserable and stressing about silly things you will get more of this, you will be surrounded by miserable stressful situations. If you are happy giving of love this is what will be drawn to you.

Don’t worry about tomorrow, be happy and live in the moment. The saying life is what you make it has never been more correct, you are in control of life, you can choose to do whatever makes you happy.

Realise deeply the present moment is all you ever have
