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!

Brazen

I have started writing again! I'd just gotten so busy with work and trying to manage everything else in my life, that I just had no time left over. Creative writing that is. I do miss the time I used to be able to write article after article for a happiness blog which I used to) and write something inspirational (?) on here and still write creatively. Now I'm able to write creatively again, I feel hopeful that I can get back to writing how I used to. I also remembered something I learnt at uni. That 5 word sentences (or less) pack more of a punch. So, here we go my probably sixth attempt at trying to write this one scene called 'Brazen':

'I can't believe you,' he hissed as she held the knife over his defenceless body.
'Well, you'd better start!' she yelled back at him. How had it come to this? One second. That's all it would take.
'Get up!' she kicked his motionless legs. 'Tell me I'm crazy, tell me I'm insane!' she demanded in a voice that wasn't her own. It was much fiercer, more brazen. She didn't believe herself capable. 'Tell me anything,' she pleaded as tears stung her eyes.

Yes You Are

V1:
Keep on shining like a star
Everyone's gonna know who you are
Cos you never gave up
When the going got tough
Keep on lighting up the dark

Chorus:
Cos you are yes you are incredible
Cos you are yes you are so beautiful
Don't you ever stop believing it's true
Cos you are yes you are amazing you

V2:
Keep on plugging away at life
Amaze people before their eyes
Cos you never gave in
When against the world you were struggling
I'm just praying that you realise
(Repeat Chorus)
M8:
Cos you are don't try to deny
The truth it's written in your eyes
You are worth so much
Don't just give it away for another's touch
Cos you are worth so much more
And you're so God damn beautiful
*Repeat Chorus).

Car wash!

I've been feeling uneasy this week. And it's been my own stupid fault - I take full responsibility for it.

I was out with a friend on Sunday and we had had lunch when he decided to put his car through a car wash. I'd never been in a car wash before I felt invigorated!

I sat there and felt like my mind had had its own wash! I felt all my negative thoughts disappear so it was really beneficial for me. It was as if a weight had been lifted. It was a great day and really helped me to process and think straight.
