#666 There's a fire in my heart darling but it is not burning for you anymore..

No matter how much we want things to stay the same, life is all about change. 
Sometimes change is for the better, and sometimes it’s not. No matter why things are changing, we need to be able to let go and move on. Whether it’s the death of a loved one, a painful breakup, a business failure, or a treacherous betrayal, holding onto past pain and resentment will only hold you back.

“The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.”

The process of letting go of someone you love is one of life’s most painful experiences. When you have invested a considerable amount of time and emotional energy in someone, the prospect of living without them may be unthinkable. You may look back on the memories you shared, the plans you made, and feel nothing but psychic agony. If you are newly broken up, envisaging a new future may feel close to impossible. You may find yourself ruminating on what you could have done differently, the arguments you may have had, and the things you regret saying.

Every relationship is unique, and there are many reasons why cutting ties may be the kindest solution for all parties. Maybe you discovered as time went on that your values and dreams did not align. At first you may have hoped that you could overcome your differences, but in the end they drove you apart. Sometimes, love just isn’t enough and you come to the sad conclusion that it’s time to part ways. Whatever the trigger, the emotional fallout will be considerable. Be kind to yourself and expect it will take some time getting used to being on your own again.

#665 Today I don't feel like doing anything...

As the song goes, "Today I don't feel like doing anything"... Nothing at all..

So when did I start to take life so seriously?
 Sometimes, I just want to scream when I realize how wrapped up I can get in the “importance” of my day-to-day. This is an urgent reminder that I am in “serious” need of some laughter and good old fashioned play time. In these times, I turn to my inner child for help. We’ve all got one. They remind us how to be free, spontaneous, imaginative and most importantly, they help us to reconnect with our personal truths.
Here are 5 fun ways to get in touch with your inner child and help make them a part of your life:

1. Express yourself. Take out a piece of blank paper and draw. Draw whatever comes to mind. Even better Get your hands on a colouring book, stat! (Bonus points for using crayons.)

2. Play! Play! Play!  If you are lucky enough to have sentimental parents, you may have an attic or basement filled with your old toys. Not a chance? No problem. Hit a local second hand store in your area and look for old toys you used to play with. Bring them home and play! Have a drunken friend’s night and bring out Monopoly for some laughter.

3. Kick back and enjoy some me time: - Watch old children's shows that you used to watch as a kid. Those memories will come flooding back and you'll be feeling light hearted in no time. Some classic shows are now available on Netflix.

4. Sing - As a kid, I can remember belting out songs at the top of my lungs. I didn't care who heard me and I didn't care if I was any good. One of my favourite activities to do when i find myself too serious is to sing as badly as a I can. Turn up the volume of something that makes you smile and sing.. :).

5. Laugh - Find something that makes you laugh and do it! it's impossible to think about anything serious or stressful when you are crying and gagging with laughter. Invite some friends over, who cares if the house is messy. They are coming to see you and have some laughs not to admire the mess.

#664 I still remember these...

A song that is grabbing me at present, is the beautiful music from Ed Sheeran - 
"Castle on the Hill"

How we are all getting older, whether you are 20, 30, or older, our friends are a major part of our lives. How we are all different in some way or another. How we meet, and then grow apart. How each of our lives will become so different from our own. 

I read an 8 year old saying... why don't I have a life similar to that of what is portrayed in the video of Castle on the Hill. To the little 8 year old, don't wish to grow up so fast. Explore your own area, live each day and smile, as one day you will look back and think where has the time gone...

It reminded me of the quote from Oprah. No matter our journey, or where it takes you, the person you want by yourside is the one that dosen't mind taking a bus instead of a limo...
Some friends will always want the limo, and want the fast lane.

#663 The Storyteller...

We often think of creativity as mythical and mysterious—it’s no wonder that creative types are often portrayed as isolated and socially disconnected. For those of us who work in a creative field we recognize that creativity relies as much on process, as well as skill, imagination and magic – 'The Art of Storytelling'.

Storytellers have been sharing their techniques ever since our ancestors told the first story. The craft of telling stories is a tradition as old as the human race. As we can imagine, we learn stories from our parents, and subtly we learn from shared experiences and hidden meanings.

No matter the medium with which we work, we storytellers share a mission, and there’s much we can learn from those of other trades and backgrounds. Story telling comes in many forms and the ones that I adore is the hidden story behind movies. 

Here are my top 6 movies with hidden ‘storylines’ or in some cases inspirational life lessons, so what are you fav movies.. there are so many..

1)     Forest Gump – (Do I really need to explain this one..?)
2)    The Notebook – (For better or worse)
3)    Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – (Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look    around once in a while, you could miss it)
4)  Braveheart – (Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you’ll live… at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin’ to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take… OUR FREEDOM!” – William Wallace)
5)     Dead Poet Society – (Carpe Diem – Seize the day)

6)    The Breakfast Club – ("We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong, but we think you're crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us—in the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain and an athlete, and a basket case, a princess, and a criminal")... We are all the same. P.S David Bowie has a quote at the beginning. Another awesome story teller..(Did you see it?)

#662 Breathe out the future, breathe out the past..

I stumbled across this You Tube video the other day and was mesmorized at the talent of this young woman.  I would like to share with you and have captured as much as possible from this video.

Please do like her video and listen, she has so many others but this one was awesome.
Video attached below.

20 Things I've learned in 20 years..

1) Do what you love and do it often and do it unapologising
2) Pay more attention to your thoughts.. What your thinking is what your attracting
3) Timing has a lot to do with everything..
4) Not everyone thinks the same as you do..
5) Silence says a lot
6) If an opportunity dosen't exist, create it..If an idea dosen't exist, create it..
7) Your feelings aren't always valid. You are allowed to feel them and take as much time as you need.
8) Self doubt will be your creative downfall
9) It begins and ends in your mind, What you give power to, has power over you
10) Breathe in the future, breathe out the past
11) The most beautiful things in life are moment and feelings
12) What you see in other people is a reflection of yourself
13) If it makes you nervous it is worth doing
14) Certain things will never go back to how they used to be, and that's ok
15) At your absolute best, you still won't be good enough for the wrong person
16) If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done
17) Talk to yourself the same way you talk to someone you love
18) Focussing on the negative in a situation, destroys the positive
19) You can't find happiness in other people
20) Know exactly what you want and don't stop till you get it

#661 The Truth Runs Wild...

“I am so angry with him. I need to vent …”
“I think it’s important that you know what she/he has been doing … “
“Have you heard the latest?
"Did you know..
"Did you hear "he/she" has come out?

Wherever people gather there will be conversation; sometimes (okay, often!), that conversation becomes gossip, which may blossom into rumour. 

So why do we gossip, why do we hurt people just to make ourselves feel better?

People who don't feel good about themselves temporarily feel better when they judge others negatively. When people can't generate interesting discussions based on knowledge or ideas, gossip can rouse people's interest. People gossip in order to hurt those whose popularity, talents, or lifestyle they envy. It all comes down to jealousy.

Why don't we just enjoy what we have around us, and get to know people unconditionally.

Just remember people who gossip about others will turn their attention to you one day. Stay away from the gossipers as they intend to hurt and one day they will direct their attention at you. They do this so they cannot see the hurt they are suffering themselves and end up focussing their hurt on others..
