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

Shitty people

After an incident this week, someone said to me “they are just shitty people”.  I realised; People aren’t shitty.  Sometimes they just do shitty things.  Which is a result of a lack of love in their lives.  If you come across a “shitty” person, I challenge you to meet them with love and kindness.  And … Continue reading

I don’t play games

I sat down to write a post about something entirely different. A book review actually; that I’ll get to at a later date. As I sat down to start writing, a friend texted me telling me about this guy she’s been chatting with. She mentioned something about the fact that he just sent her a … Continue reading

Today was a magical day

The journey of today. Today was one of those days. You know, the type of day where you don’t really have any proper plans, you just drift through what you feel and it ends up being a really relaxing, peaceful and magical day. It started with catching up with a friend of mine who I … Continue reading

Is it weird…

…that when I lie down with people (especially children) or animals, I really enjoy just listening to them breathe?  *I’m writing this while I have a cat snuggled near my shoulder and breathing heavily into my ear* 😊

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

My opinion on polygamy: take two

A few months ago I wrote about my thoughts on polygamous relationships…and another idea just popped into my head about this sort of lifestyle. One particular friend that reads this will completely disagree with what I’m about to say, because I recall having conversations with her about this years ago and (provided her thoughts haven’t … Continue reading

Always look for the good in people…

Remember, it’s your job to look for something cool in everyone you meet; it’s not their job to show you. This is life, not a fucking sales convention. Learning to appreciate people you meet is a skill you cultivate. – Mark Manson Here’s some advice on a Monday. This guy has got some awesome reads … Continue reading

Power to the Peaceful

In search of a definition for “power to the peaceful”, I came across a site that had a bunch of different people’s thoughts and ideas on what it means to them. This was my favourite. POWER TO THE PEACEFUL by Gemma Boyd “Power to the people who speak Power to the people who listen Power … Continue reading

I don’t give up

“I’m not the type of person to give up on someone. Yes, sometimes I get really mad and upset so I need time to cool off, but I’ll never abandon you. I don’t leave people. And I think that’s why it always hurts so bad when people leave me.” I saw this quote on instagram … Continue reading

Aerial Love

I was never a huge fan of Silverchair, I think I was probably a bit too young for their style of music at the time – however I did like a handful of their songs, just not a whole lot. Anyway, frontman Daniel Johns has (very recently) released a new single from his forthcoming EP in … Continue reading

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 dropped bear

It really gets up my goat when guys drop their friends (who are girls in this instance) whenever they get a girlfriend. Why can’t we stay friends? I have this so-called ‘best friend’ who drops me like a fucking hot potato every time he gets a new girlfriend. I mean, I kind of understand why … 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

One Lovely Blog

First and foremost, I want to thank Laura for nominating me for this award, it was an absolute surprise and makes me feel loved and honoured that there are people out there that read my blog and all the odd ramblings I have to say from time to time. This award acknowledges bloggers who share their … 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

A rhyme for the sensitive child

This poem is titled for the ‘sensitive child’, whereas I think it is relevant for all people. Rhyme for the Sensitive Child Jen Reich ‘Don’t take things so personal’ You hear them say But child I know You don’t see it that way- For I know that you feel Deep like the sea And when … 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

Words…and how you take them

Writing is a very interesting thing because it can be taken so completely out of context and sometimes the people who read it can take one little thing the complete opposite way that you are trying to say. Even if you repeat it and state it so clearly that your fingers hurt! For example…I can … Continue reading

Edge of the Frame

Today’s Daily Prompt: We often capture strangers in photos we take in public. Open your photo library, and stop at the first picture that features a person you don’t know. Now tell the story of that person. Well, this was actually harder to find than I thought it would! Mostly because I don’t store many … Continue reading

What’s my age again?

Today’s daily prompt is questioning whether or not age is something to be mindful of. “Age is just a number,” says the well-worn adage. But is it a number you care about, or one you tend (or try) to ignore? I believe in the idea that age is just a number and I often try … 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

Child of the Universe

I am a child of the universe. I am not bound by any constricting views. I am not limited to a particular culture, race, gender, religion, country, social class, I’m not defined by my looks, my language, my background, what I eat, what I believe in, who I am friends with, what I study, Life … Continue reading
