Thank you for exposing me

Thank you for exposing me

2020 as we know wasn’t the best year…

I had some ups and downs but funny enough I got to travel more in 2020 than I have any other year

Most of us are glad to see the end of it,

But after some reflection
I’m grateful that it happened

It exposed me
It left me vulnerable
And I know that I’m not as strong as I thought I was…

It’s easy to be resistant in easy times
It’s easy to have a positive mind in good times

But we never truly know what we are made of until the shit turns sideways

I know I have work to do.

Thank you 2020.

Where’s all the love at?

Isn’t it sad that when I write words of pain
You nod your head and remember a time when you felt the same
Yet if I write words of love, peace and happiness
You scrunch your face and think I’m insane
Isn’t it sad that pain is universal
Yet where is all the love at?

Lonelyer than space

They say in space nobody can hear you scream
But that’s true on Earth too
Because we scream inwards
Whilst outwards we project a smile
Which we keep up for a while
But as soon as were alone
We scream and shout
But away from the window because we don’t want anybody to know
So we never show, how we truly feel on our face
Sometimes earth can be as lonely as space.

Improvisation

I had a cool idea for a post today, but then I forgot what is was, so now I’m just kind of improvising as I go,

Because sometimes we can just sit and think too much and get nothing done whilst waiting for a bit of inspiration

Or we can just start something, good or bad it doesn’t matter because it will get the juices flowing and something good may come of it

What stands In the way becomes the way as Marcus Aurelius would say

It’s a bit like when your feeling anxious about something, say a job Interview,

Well during the interview your not anxious because your there in the present but worrying about is in the future

So action helps stop anxiety

We can think or we can do
We can worry or we can take action
We can let obstacles stop us, or we can use them to drive us forward
