Let your spirit soar

    The soul soars high with each step you take in to the light, The sun shines down on your life. You take this feeling of euphoria and you bask in it. You are this feeling, it consumes you. There is nothing in the world now that can break your spirit. You are the spirit, you are free. Kate Hames       Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough.  Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow,  next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂  ‘Blind faith is no way to run … Continue reading Let your spirit soar

Haiku’s

  Hello! yes I know, Tuesday’s are supposed to be short story days, unfortunately my short story seemed to lack an ending so it’s Haiku’s today 🙂   Doctor Who? you ask, He’s the mad man with a box The bow tie wearer The naked tree branch, It sways in the wind, so harsh. Still so beautiful. Raindrops kiss my face, The tears run so freely now, Mistaken for rain. If I were to stay I would need more than you promise Actions speak louder…   Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough.  Follow your dreams … Continue reading Haiku’s

Stop labelling yourself

  I have no doubt what so ever that mental illness is real. I know it is real, I’ve witnessed it first hand, I’ve dealt with it on a personal level. However I do believe to some extent that we are mollycoddling ourselves and exacerbating the situation. As much as awareness needs to be raised in regards to mental health and in keeping people safe we also need to stop viewing it as a personality trait. It is never something to be ashamed of but it’s not something to be proud of neither. As an anxiety sufferer with PTSD and … Continue reading Stop labelling yourself

Wednesday Haiku’s

  Watch the sunshine fade, The remnants of the day, Gone without a trace. The mirror shows truth. A reflection cannot hide. A story, so sad. Sweet sticky buns, A tasty treat for tea-time Sugary goodness.   Running, running, fast You will not escape from me, Keep on running, fast.   With a cup of tea, I can take on the whole world, Nothing can stop me.   Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough.  Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow,  next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂 ‘Blind faith is … Continue reading Wednesday Haiku’s

Just some Haikus

  I enjoy writing Haiku’s. They seem so simple because you have an easy set of rules to stick to but it gets harder and harder. Especially if you want them to make some sort of sense. I could write total gibberish to be honest and sometimes I might. Wednesdays from now on will be my Haiku day. I hope I don’t start repeating myself 🙂 Enjoy ♥ Where are you going? The girl on the bus, where? Will you make it there? I am not a thing, I possess much more than that. My vision is set. Time is never … Continue reading Just some Haikus

Angry!!!

  If you know me, I mean really, really know me, you will know that I have always been prone to having slight anger issues, temper tantrums if you will. The slightest thing could set me off and it was always genuinely uncontrollable. Until recently I actually thought that I was just a miserable sod, an angry little dwarf as my friend Hayley once referred to me as. Well I’m neither of those things, I’m actually a really happy person, especially if I happen to see a doggy! I have discovered that my anxiety is to blame for my many … Continue reading Angry!!!

My law of attraction in verse…

I recently joined a mindset coaching academy called the ‘Bossing It Academy’, here they (they being Holly and Caroline, who are incredible and will help you every step of the way) teach you about the Law of Attraction and how to basically boss the s**t out of your life. So my brain has obviously become inspired and it decided I should write this, this is how I am feeling about my take on the Law of Attraction at the moment. I cannot, will not fail, I may stumble along the way. The strength I have found within is my power now. … Continue reading My law of attraction in verse…

Sadness

I wish the rain would comfort me each time I shed a tear,  if this were so, we’d all be drowned within the year. There is no way to hold  them back, the fear and pain push through, the emotions cloud my thoughts, the tears obscure my view. For a moment I catch the sunshine, it plays upon the wall, A smile flickers for an instant, the joy before the fall. I feel your presence around me, I know you’re always there It doesn’t quell the loneliness, it’s more than just unfair. I started writing this poem months ago when … Continue reading Sadness

Remember the compliments, forget the insults.

compliments

Do you remember the things that people tell you about yourself? Do you only remember the bad things? I find it quite difficult to accept compliments, I don’t really know how to respond to them. I always say thank you but I feel like that’s not enough. Should I repay the compliment? I feel that if I do that I’m going to go overboard and freak the compliment-giver out!

Well I’m trying to remember things that people have said about me that I’ll never forget, I realise that that sentence doesn’t actually make sense…but you get what I mean 🙂

About a year ago I did a similar post to this where I asked some of my friends to tell me my personality traits. One of my friends responses was that I have a hat for every occasion. I’m pretty sure she said some more wonderfully profound things but that one has stuck in my head. I know it’s not a compliment as such but I like it, my hats are important to me because they are part of my personality.

I also remember when I realised that I am stubborn, although I didn’t actually realise it, I was told by a tarot card reader in Amsterdam. She came up to us in a bar and all I can remember her saying is that I am very stubborn. I had never been called stubborn before this, at least not to my knowledge and I wasn’t entirely sure that I was that stubborn. Now I often wonder if I was always stubborn or if her ‘reading’ made me become more stubborn because I then believed I should be. My sub-conscious went ding! Maybe I should try to be less stubborn. Is it stubbornness or is it jut being head-strong? Is there a difference? Do I really care? I don’t care which it is because whichever it is I have that trait and it serves me quite well when it needs to.

The content of this post has kind of gotten away from me. My original point was supposed to be about listening and holding on to the compliments that people give you. They mean them, they’re not going to day them if they don’t mean them are they? Who goes around handing out empty compliments? That’s just weird. Ignore the insults, they usually come from a place of jealousy or insecurity.

 

 

Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough. 

Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow, 

next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂
