Writing is something I love. Having written for years the last few months have been hard. I’ve not written, other than on here, for months now.
Anyone that knows me, knows I over think everything. Today a lot of that thinking has been about my lack of writing.
Coming to the conclusion that what’s stopping me is me. Or should I say my inner editor. You know that voice we all have telling us ‘we’re no good’ or ‘what rubbish you write. No one would like to read that nonsense’. The problem being I’ve been listening to that voice and nothing else.
I hope now that I’ve realised whats going on I can work through it and get writing again.
If opportunity doesn’t knock.
Build a door yourself.
Every time you watch the news. You realise that so many folk die in our world because of differences in our faith.
When you look at most faiths. They practice peace loving, good will to others and the improvement of society & mankind. How then do we get from that to killing each other. This happens because we become obsessed with the differences in our faith. These differences are seen t cancel out all the positives and change faiths from peace loving to death creating.
Next time you consider someone else’s faith try and ignore the differences. Rather than them try and focus on SHARED BELIEVES. try and change from creating distrust and hate let’s create a society of shared believes and peace love and harmony v
Is to short to
Worry about things You can’t change
Stress over your Past life or mistakes
If YOU decide life will be better
Then it will be for you
Change things you can to improve it
No point worrying bout the rest
Cause you can’t change anything
OTHER THAN YOURSELF.
The past us who we are
It should never
Stop us moving on
Stop up being happy
It should allow
Us to learn positive lessons
Us improve the people we are
Often with the help of friends
Learn the lessons
Grow for the better
And remember the good times
But never look back
With thoughts of anger
Be pleased you met
Those who taught
You the lessons
After a long drive back from London with lots of time to think.
I remembered something I decided last year.
I’ve spent a lot of time visiting mental health professional’s. During those visits I spent a lot of time looking at the negative things in life. After one long session when I was very low and almost suicidal. When I realised that all those negative thoughts and going over them helped no one. Definitely not me.
Our pasts always effect the way we react to the present. One of the things I do is run and hide when any death effects someone I care for happens.
Not that that excuses any negative thing I’ve done.
Anyway back to the point.
What I decided was to look at the positive folk I’ve had in my life. That brought back loads of positive feelings. Making me realise that even when we lose a friend no matter who’s fault it is once the tears are over. When you remember that friendship don’t focus on the end, on the negative issues. Try remembering the positives that happened.
For me I lost a truly special friend recently and that caused pain and tears. Then I realised that person had changed me so much for the positive. By showing me how my actions hurt others. I’m sad the friendship is over and will never be back. However thanks to that awesome person I will no longer hurt anyone in the same way.
So rather than focusing on those negative things. I want to say thank you for the life lessons. Thanks for a great friendship.
Perhaps if we all did the same we would have a happier world.
So next time you have issues with someone in your life don’t focus on those negatives for to long. Just try and remember the positive things that relationship gave you both.
Today I sat and watched parts of this awesome event.
It got me thinking. We saw so many folk running supporting charities for so many different causes. Can there be any other day in the year when so many give so much of themselves for others.
Normally news media is filled with stories of war, death and misery. Surely there must be stories of giving, humanity or inspiration, like we have today that they could print.
Why don’t they?
Because most folk thrive on negativity. Surely the media could lift the spirit of the entire world. Perhaps even encourage a more giving society by sharing these stories.
I know its a mad thought that’ll never happen because the world is full of to much apathy.
Try and do something positive to help someone!
Once you’ve share your life with an abusive person. It sets your mind to keep folk at arms length.
The theory being if they don’t get close they can’t hurt you.
Then you realise that your missing out on so much. You don’t know the feeling of friendship or love from anyone. You always believe what that abusive person said, your worthless or why would anyone want to know you?
Then you retreat further into yourself.
Never realising that the person your hurting most is no one but yourself!
So if you find someone who genuinely cares for you. Those words showing they care never stay in your mind because you don’t believe them. Not that you think the other person is lying you just think they’re being nice or polite.
So please be careful folks and try keeping an open mind or you might lose someone really special.
Comes in many forms
Almost all created by US
Our youthful actions
Come back to haunt us
That we all tell from time to time
Actions done to us by others
Or just a nasty personality
We’d rather forget
No matter what
They will stay in our minds
We can regret our past
We can try to rectify things
By creating positive vibes
In our present
But we can never forget
Those shameful acts
Of our past
The hardest part
Of feeling shame
Is the knowledge
That it was our actions
That caused OUR shame
The hardest part
Is when others
Refuse to let us rectify our shameful acts
So before you do anything
Think it through
Imagine your future self
Will they be ashamed of your actions?
We all have shame maybe from
Lies told, we all do it
Others we’ve hurt
Or mistakes in life that
We wish could be taken back
Will stay in our minds
Miss you so much
We all need space for us
Remember no matter how long its been
I will always be here
Consider you my best friend
Always have you in my heart
Thoughts and prayers
Talking with you
Brings joy, peace and love
To my very soul
You understand how I think
I know how you think
We are soul mates
I will be here waiting when you need a friend
Love sent with these words
You are always my soul mate
