Be Your Own Velentin

‘Be Your Own Valentin’

(I wrote this last year, Don’t think I actually published it on here)

Its that day where all couples feel special and loved up and shove it in the faces of the single people, whom most may feel down and unloved and not so special… Some couples may fall out because one half didn’t make the other one feel loved enough and others feel super special because they’ve been showered with gifts… (Is it really special though if you’re doing the same thing every other couple is doing… Just a thought)

The whole day and how people generally (not everyone) feel about it is based on validation from an outside source… Another person.

Whether you’ve woken up alone with not even a hint of cupid, or your partner has only spent £2.50 on a last-minute attempt to keep you happy (The monster) Or your partner has spent your rent money on gifts just to prove they love you shouldn’t change how you feel about yourself.

Whether someone loves you or not is out of your control, That person is also not responsible for your happiness or making you feel special.

Only you are and only you can control those elements and you can control them 365 days a year not just today.

Be your own valentines by taking responsibility for your own self-worth and stop giving that responsibility to others.

Who fact checks the fact checkers?

Who fact checks the fact checkers?

We live in a world where your post, video, blog or whatever can be removed for breaching guideline

Where if you post something that goes against an agenda they will label it as fake news.

But who are they and where have they got their facts from?

If something true gets posted and is branded false, the chances are people are going to believe its false.

Then it comes down to another form of manipulation and control and in aid of stopping misinformation, they are promoting misinformation (but to benefit an agenda.)

So the job comes down to me and you to do an already hard task at figuring out what is true or not and not believing everything we see and read at face value.

That old saying –

Those who control the media, control the people (or something along those lines)

They try to make a nesting place in the ever moving stream of life

Here’s a mistake that most people make in their relationships with others. They try to make a nesting place in the ever moving stream of life

Anthony De Mello

Its not just in the relationship with others but with everything.

We get comfortable with our jobs, one form of marketing, one brand, one show

Everything changes and nothing remains the same, clinging on to something will leave you feeling lost when it eventually goes…

The only way you can cling on to something forever is if you die before you lose it

Like a stream

Everything flows, one day you have it the next it’s gone

2020 isn’t over yet

2020 isn’t over yet

So don’t give up on it.

Yeah things haven’t gone your way

So what?

A pilot doesn’t always have a good landing

But they dont blame it on the year

And they don’t just throw in the towel

It’s not been the best year for anyone

Yet there is still time to make a better landing

Don’t blame external events, how we respond today (not next year) will set us up for a better tomorrow

Wild Child

Why don’t we play anymore,
When did our lives become so grey
Fearing another dreaded Monday

We used to play without a thought for the rest of the day
Stop and splash in a puddle, then make a dash straight to the next puddle

No thoughts of consequences of what the other kids thought of us
We were just happy
Maybe that’s what we ought to go back to doing

We seem to have caught this bug,
That we should not play
As it’s not the adult way
Or maybe it was taught to us
By someone who thought they were better than the rest of us

Now were all sad,
Because someone was mad
Because they were told that playing was bad

But look deep inside,
There’s a child inside that was locked away before its day
And its waiting to be let loose and go wild

Like a ship and its not ment to be docked
It wants to be out on the open sea

Yet the port is not blocked by a lock
There is no key you see the cage is imaginary

So jump in that puddle,
Give that tree a cuddle
Get muddy
That child inside is making you rage
Because you locked away your best buddy

Your snappy,
Your frightened of being judged by some bitch that you don’t even like

But ditch those thoughts
They dont serve you now
You’re tired of being unhappy

So leave the port and get out in the open

You are a wild child
Be happy
