Simplicity is key.

I often wonder what I want out of life.

Do you?

Don’t we all….?

Is it love?

Is it happiness?

Is it wealth?

Funny how these may be identified as external fundamentals to strive for, but what we often do not realise is that, what is found within, is naturally exerted out.

I thought of this as I sat on a park bench after what seemed to be a day filled with mindless chaos, self inflating like a thin balloon ready to explode. I didn’t quite understand how unsettling this feeling was and I most definitely did not know how to stop it.

You will probably think that I magically felt better by what came next and that it’s such a typical script of text to describe the usual same old frollick along the field and life is rainbow and smiles concept, however…. is it not?

Beter yet, picture it like this, you may be having the worst day ever but someone, somewhere is having the best day ever simultaneously.

We all have those moments where the world does seem to be against us, no matter what we do these setbacks seem to appear more and more.

we must change our focus.

Now I could have sat there on that bench and replayed the downward spiral that was twisting and turning its way around my body. I felt my emotions slowly envelope me physically as I sat there with my head extended back neatly resting on the back of the bench, hands in my pockets, eyes closed, hoping for the storm in my head to calm to a stop….

before the storm swept me away, I chose to focus on the love I had for the simple things that I was fortunate enough to experience.

I sat and stared at an abundance of foliage from the ever growing soldiers of green that towered above me. Creeping through the gaps between the branches was an infinite sky that never fails to amaze me each time I would look upon it.

In the distance, chirping sounds of the wonderous wings that sail through the blue array above me, the whispers of the setting sun briskly breezing through my body. Chilling but refreshing.

I briefly closed my eyes and inhaled deeply, filling my lungs with the freshness of gratitude then exhaled with the relief of contentment.

Focusing the attention and feeling to the senses in my surrounds made me realise that there is love directly proportional to the storm.

When there is bad, there is good

When there is wrong, there is right


When we focus on the love deep within,

Happiness becomes our beloved kin.

And our wealth? Disguised in a heavenly grin.

Oh what a life.


What is it about Change that deters us the most?

It could be a number of things, it can be:

The Uncertainty of the unfamiliar, feeling the crumble from treading on grounds that are so far from our comfort zones.

Habitual behaviours, that rise in resistance to the breaking of cyclical patterns that have held us from propelling forward.

The Vulnerability, an overwhelming exposure from what you know, to learn what you don’t know.

Abandonment and Neglect, it’s okay to leave behind what no longer serves purpose in your life.

Loneliness, this path is solely for your soul.

Change is difficult, Change is painful but when disciplined, Change is beautiful.

Just like our every day lives, Change is routinal.

We must implement and follow these components for it to flourish into rewards of fulfillment. Without consistency, we are consumed by old behavioural patterns that will rob us from our own progress.

Strive for your change and keep at it, pave the pathway for your own growth.

It’s not always easy, it’s not always fun either.

But sometimes what’s hard and taxing, can be what creates the ease and enjoyment for the future.

Embrace the change and the journey that goes along with it.

Sheer fear.

They say the sky is the limit.

What if it is?

What if it is not?

Imagine the Universe as your dreams and aspirations in life, your capabilities, your potentials, your hopes….

Now, imagine the Earth as reality filled with expectations, bills, relationships, debts, work, university and the list goes on…

What is it that separates these two concepts?

You’ve imagined what is beyond and what is below, how about what is inbetween?

The atmospheric fear.

A subtle, invisible layer over the realities of how we live and divides us from how we truly hope to live.

You can’t see it, but you sure can feel it.

Is that why they say the sky is the limit, because we are too afraid to venture through this layer that protects us from the unkown?

Or maybe,

our perception to rise past the skies, stems on the fear of the fall from failure,

that burns and breaks us down into nothingness back to Earth.

better yet, let us all just embrace existance.

If the sky is your limit, let it be your limit.

But if your rise surpasses the sky, do not let the atmosphere limit your perceptions of your abilities.

Fly high,

Float for a while,

Fear with a smile


Fight as you trial.
