Doing things

I've noticed that just getting on with things makes it go quicker.

So I don't put things off. If I can help it.

If it's just me in a situation I'd rather not wait.

When sorting out clothes as I have in the past week (my summer wardrobe is back!) although my arm hurt me by lifting it to put hangers on the rails, I was uplifted by the colours that are re-emerging in my wardrobe!

It's so lovely, just looking over at the clothes!

I took off the doors on my wardrobe last year because there was too much weight in there and having the doors too, meant I couldn't see what I had in terms of clothing.

Situations

Everyone is going through situations. And they are all different.

'It seemed not so much distant as unreal.'

That defines a situation that is happening yet you are not involved in it.

It is a quote from 'Where My Heart Used To Beat' by Sebastian Faulks.

It is hard when you are not involved, to have an opinion of the situation, as you don't know everything. That's why I don't think judgements are good to make on first appearances.

Everyone has different reasons for decisions that they make.

And every situation is so different.

What occurs to anyone else you don't have a clue.

Try not to judge.

Situations are so different to everybody and depend on your perspective.

Where I Am

I haven’t been doing this for a while and I have missed it.

I haven’t been in the right kind of headspace for a while – so apologies for the month of no videos.

A lot has been going on – both personally and in regards to my family.

I have been given more to do in regards of work and so I have to prioritise.

I will try to keep my blog on Wednesday up but it may not always be in my control.

I wonder...

It is fascinating to sit outside
Where i wonder at things
All the great thinkers; past or present
philosophers, authors, scientists,
Take your pick; we all live under the same sky.

I find this mind-boggling. I find it really quite powerful to think of.

Life is undiluted

Life is undiluted. I've always liked this idea! How else would we grow if it was diluted? And who knows what the perfect, diluted situation would be in your life? I think even in a 'perfect' world we'd be waiting for it all to go wrong. Because you can't dilute reality.

We need bad stuff to happen alongside good stuff because how would we appreciate the good stuff if bad stuff didn't occur? It's all a balance and, though it's rreally hard when you're teetering on the edge of it all going wrong, things do change and get better.

Everything we do reacts with something else. My mind has to react with my hand to write this!

Review of LA LA Land

LA LA Land was incredible. It was really uplifting. It's a musical love story that ends up taking two different routes and I guess the viewer gets to decide the one Emma Stone follows. It just made me feel happy inside. The opening sequence is funny and just what you want to happen. You'd like to be able to do that. I would anyway! While some of the singing was a bit pitchy and random, I think the film needs to be taken for what it is - a feel-good film that is designed to make you feel good.

That's What I Love - stream of coinciousness

How many times have I dreamt about this? Sleeping under a bouquet of stars! They're so beautiful. Really stunning tonight. I focus on one - I don't know it's particular name, just decide it's a lucky one. It's towards the west so it's one of the last lights before the sun overrules them. It's always glorious watching the sun rise. And just that excites me as I have no idea what the day may have in store.
There are so many things that could happen. I could meet someone new, I could try a new taste and really enjoy it or stick to what I know. There are so many possibilities and no matter what I do, I won't be letting myself down. That's what I love. I'd much rather be doing something than sitting back. Sitting back entails thoughts of 'Wish I could' and anyone who knows me knows that I am a doer. I'd much rather be, than have regrets of not doing anything.

*Hey! I hope you liked that! I've been awful at posting things lately! Just had a lot going on!
