People and Change

I must say, this opinion of people changing really hits the nail on the head. So many people think and believe that “people can’t change” (or don’t change).  But I disagree.  I believe that change is entirely  possible. I’ve seen it with my own eyes…hell, I’ve seen it within myself!  I love learning and growing … Continue reading

Fill your emptiness, with you

I don’t want to agree with this. I don’t think we should seek to find happiness in external factors. We should work on creating happiness within ourselves. Maybe we need to find ways to fill those empty spaces through finding love and joy for ourselves. Not through seeking another person; or place; or distraction. I … Continue reading

7 years later…

Facebook just reminded me that 7 years ago, on this date (23rd January 2009), I had my 21st birthday party. While 7 years isn’t really a typical celebratory length of time, or notable ‘anniversary’ or anything, I still would like to share what I think is rather coincidental (?) – or should I say, has … Continue reading

It sounds like a lame cliché

I like to live in the ‘now’. Yes, it sounds like a lame cliché. “Live in the now maaann”. But I really am the type of person who thrives on living in the ‘present moment’. From little things like eating chocolate because I feel like tasting it, rather than thinking about the future effects it … Continue reading

Don’t try to change the world

I heard these lyrics in a song on the radio a few weeks ago, and I just thought it was the best piece of advice one could be given when it comes to changing the world and finding your passion. Don’t try to change the world, Find something that you love And do it every … Continue reading

Sign your name; help save lives.

I know my blog doesn’t reach a great deal of followers, and that’s fine. But I really want to stress the awareness I want to help create about depression. For those of you that follow me regularly or semi-regularly, you would have remembered a post about an optimist with depression after I heard about the … Continue reading

searching for the answer

I’ve been trying to find the answer within myself about a few things over the past, well lets say 12-18 months, but it’s been a lot more prominent the last few months. And I think I’m finally getting somewhere. One main question in particular that has been bothering me, I’m starting to realise the reason … Continue reading

badbye

Why is it called a goodbye anyway? In my experiences, “bye’s” are never good. It should be called a badbye. That is all.

Ashes and Wine

“Is there a chance? A fragment of light at the end of the tunnel? A reason to fight? Is there a chance you may change your mind? Or are we ashes and wine? – Ashes and Wine by A Fine Frenzy You know how some people avoid goodbyes because they don’t like them? Well, newsflash; … Continue reading

The Butterfly Effect

“It has been said that something seemingly insignificant, like that of a butterfly flapping its wings may cause a ripple effect that can take you on new adventures beyond your wildest dreams. Be as free as a butterfly, say yes instead of no, and go with the ripples.”

Regrets of 2015 (number 1)

I try not to have any many regrets, but sometimes there are little ones that scrape through without being able to control the ability to not regret it. And I guess this ‘regret’ doesn’t 100% count in 2015, but I’m going to say it’s my first (of hopefully very few) regrets for this year. I … Continue reading

I’m giving in

I guess I just forgot that friends can hurt you and break your heart just as much as a lover can. I had a whole post planned out for the above line, but now I can’t think of what to say. Long story short, I recently (re-)became friends with, well…an old friend (who had initially broke … Continue reading

A thank you, to YOU

Is there a person you should’ve thanked, but never had the chance? Is there someone who helped you along the way without even realizing it? Here’s your chance to express your belated gratitude. I want to send my thanks to you. Yes, you in front of the computer screen who is reading this right now. I … Continue reading

Can we auto-correct humanity?

A friend sent me this earlier today and I felt the need to share it because we all need to learn to put down that phone, ipad, computer, whatever just a little bit more, and start interacting and connecting with real life actual PEOPLE around us! (Myself included, I’m no saint when it comes to … Continue reading

I hope this counts for something

I am a few days behind on this daily prompt but it says: You’ve been given the opportunity to send one message to one person you wouldn’t normally have access to (for example: the President. Kim Kardashian. A coffee grower in Ethiopia). Who’s the person you choose, and what’s the message? My message isn’t of importance … Continue reading

Missing Pieces

Tonight I am missing the people I left behind. I left Queensland a few months ago and due to unforeseen circumstances, I left in such a hurry that I unfortunately didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to my friends. And tonight, I’m just realising that the fact that I didn’t get to say goodbye … Continue reading

Are you too busy?

Do you want to know what each and every human being on this earth has in common with each other? The amount of hours per day. No one is ever “too busy”, we all just have different priorities. Do what makes you happy. We are the creators of our own destiny. We are the creations … Continue reading

Your Loss – Not Mine

I find the notion behind saying “it’s your loss not mine” to be a very hurtful one. For example, if someone said to me after a discussion which was resulting in a potential loss of friendship/relationship between us that this was “your loss and not mine”, it is as if I would be the one to … Continue reading

Relocation

Hey guys, I hope I haven’t lost you over the last day or so, but I’ve just had to relocate my blog web address for personal reasons. Everything is still normal and the same here as before, just under a different address now. Apologies for any inconveniences. I guess I won’t know if you actually … Continue reading

I Wanna Get Better

I have loved this song for a few months now, and despite some lyrics being a little, odd; there are some parts which really hit home. This song makes me feel so happy, crazy, positive…and, well, BETTER of course!! However, I have found it is most effective when I play it LOUD. Which really only … Continue reading

Why become a vegan you ask?

Earlier tonight a friend sent me a link to a debate based on why animals should be taken off menus, which was great. And after I finished watching it, I went on a bit of a YouTube browse and came across this guy Gary Yourofsky‘s lecture, and OH  MY GOD he is amazing! He completely refers … Continue reading

You be You, and I’ll be Me

I’ve been a little selfish with this song lately. Well, actually I had passed it on to a friend or two, but I was going to post it sometime last week and then decided that I wasn’t yet ready to share it with the world. I think I am now… This song really helped me … Continue reading

Mantra 2/6/2014

Holy shit I can’t believe it’s June already. The perceptual speed of life is an interesting one, especially when there are phrases out there that say “time flies when you’re having fun”…well that’s not ALWAYS true. And it’s also not ALWAYS true that it feels like time goes quicker when you’re busy. It’s also a … Continue reading

Missing my Mantra

I am having a lot of trouble finding a mantra for today/this week. In fact, I’m having a lot of trouble with, well, a lot of things lately. I kind of feel like I’m in no man’s land at the moment, and I guess in many ways, I am in a bit of a place … Continue reading

Am I Wrong?

A friend said to me the other day after I sent him this song “you never cease to dazzle me with your music findings”. I was quite chuffed by this statement, even though it doesn’t really bother me if other people like what I’m into or anything, but for some reason this really made me feel good … Continue reading
