Lately I’ve been realising how precious life is and it’s given me a finer appreciation for all that I have. Here we are on this blue-green planet that’s floating around the sun, travelling at super fast speeds whilst colliding
with space junk and yet still, here we all are. How blessed are we?
I have a warm shelter, good health and the simple freedom to explore my own consciousness. I can’t predict what will happen to me in my life, all that i know is that i’m here today, alive and well. So this is why i will dedicate my life to doing what i love, what makes me feel the uttermost contentment and what makes me evolve in the way that i want to evolve.
How quickly my life could be taken away from me, it’s all so precious. I’ve discovered that suffering is just a part of the journey, we just have to take whatever lessons we can from it and apply it to our now. There is no changing the past so therefore i need to appreciate whatever i can
and be mindful of all that i do. It’s a precious life!
I want to show you,
That I know how it feels,
To feel let down,
Pushed to the side.
I can tell you,
That I’ve been in your shoes,
I’ve been in your skin,
I know what it feels like,
To feel misunderstood,
My message to you,
Is that I know how it feels,
And that I will give you the acceptance you never had,
I will give you the understanding that you never felt,
I will encourage you to be brave,
To be thoughtful,
To be kind,
To be honest,
I know how it feels.
I know what it’s like,
You are more capable than you’ll ever know, once you find the truth within yourself, you’ll see, that there is no greater truth than what lies within. Be the warrior of your own story, don’t keep it in. Let it go, let them know, that you can’t stop a flower from growing, from being beautiful, in rain or snow.

This is how someone recently described me…
"I see you as being ’light’ and ‘happy’, like a fairy. I can tell that you have an active imagination and that you would create a fascinating mystery out of exploring a house when you were young. I feel that you are still in touch with your inner child and that this has allowed you to see the world in a positive way. In fact, I am seeing an image in my head of a child in a floral dress, perhaps indicating that you are ‘young’ and ‘innocent’ in a way that allows you to feel awe and wonder."
When I was a child I was constantly in my imagination and eventhough things weren’t always chaos-free around me I still managed to feel a sense of awe and wonder because of this. I remember my earliest memories being happy, like nothing mattered because I was always living in the present moment. Why is it that somewhere around adolescence things go off track? I can remember the transition of going from a child to a teenager was somewhat puzzling for me because I wanted to be a child forever. I can remember my teens being this really confusing time because I was ‘pretending’ to not be a child and doing everything I could to ‘be a normal teenager’ (and failing might I add.)
My sense of awe and wonder completely vanished and I was no longer that imaginative child who had a thirst for learning new things. I completely forgot who I was…
At 22 years old I now feel like I am that child again who is treating everyday like it’s her first. My perspective on the world has completely changed. I’ve erased all the corruption from social conditioning and I feel so free again!
It’s very obvious and apparent that the universe works in paradoxes. Something that i have acknowledged is that we all follow a different route throughout our lives but there is very little evidence to prove that what we are doing is right or wrong from an outsiders perspective. We, as human beings, can only become the judge of what’s right through following our own intuitive guidance. So, how do we prove that there is a universal way that we all need to follow when we aren’t born with accompanying directions outlining what way we need to go?
What we need to do is focus on what human beings all enjoy as a whole. What the human being experiences at his highest and what the human being experiences at his lowest. From that, is a proven universal way. All humans like to experience joy, happiness, love and peace. No human likes to feel sadness, insecurity, anger and hatred. And so, it is clear that through following feelings of happiness and peace we guide ourselves on the right track for our lives. From my experience, when i have had negative feelings towards something it’s been a clear indication that that thing is not right. When my feelings shift from negative to positive it’s amazing how fast my perspective changes and how clear and light my thoughts become.
If something you are doing or thinking or feeling doesn’t bring about a positive reaction, it’s time to look inward and ask why. I imagine the universal way as being a big beacon of white light, gleaming forwards in a straight line and all our choices and actions are merely just streams flowing on the side. No matter what we do, we are all leading to the same place. The universal way is clearly there so that all human beings can feel elated, even if it only comes in waves.
