Waiting May Make You Too Late

And I'd hate that to be the case.
So I believe you should act on a feeling or whatever when it comes, cos you never know, you may not get tomorrow.
Last night, I heard one of my past flame's had died in February. So while I was still recovering from my birthday, he was dying. He was 22. It reminds me of how this is a big world, and you can't know what is going on in everyone's life. So I always try to smile, and be kind to everyone because I don't know what they've been through to get to this point.

So don't wait. Tell someone if you love them NOW cos you might not get the chance again. Tomorrow is never promised. You can deal with the [response] tomorrow, should tomorrow bless your doorstep. Be thankful for every breath and do something productive with every heart beat. Just do what you feel is right for you at the time. And DON'T regret anything. If it happened, it's a lesson. Life is too SHORT to have regrets. Don't wait. If you want something to happen, start making a way for it to happen. Some things you have to work to, but as long as you're heading in the right direction for that to happen, you're at least taking a vital step to what you really want/need.





So, tell me what you're tired of waiting for, what you're going to start working towards, what you're not gonna wait for - what you're going  to make happen. Let me know. I'd love to know. And if there's anything I can do to help you, just let me know. Twitter (@steph_carfrae) or comment below. Thanks. Remember, don't waste a second!

Who Influences You?

I'd love to know who has influenced YOUR life. Let me know in a comment, via twitter (@steph_carfrae) or facebook.

My story begins when I was 11 when I was reading the Girls! Girls! Girls! section in the first McFLY annual. I read Danny's bit and it said something like 'I want a girl who knows about music - so I can play my music to her!' That was the time I turned around and wrote my first lyric. It was called 'The Frozen World' and I haven't ever stopped writing lyrics since. So I owe a lot to Danny Jones, without whom I wouldn't know what direction my life would be headed in right now. I have told him this via a CD, whether he's listened to it I don't know, but I hope if he did it at least brought a smile to his face. 

A big part of what has made me who I am today is my friends. The people I choose to hang out with. I am truly grateful that they accept me for who I am. My friends are just fabulous people and though can get a little annoying I know they have my best interests at heart!!!

Recently, I've been reading 'The Success Principles' by Jack Canfield and he has been a massive influence in my life. Promoting optimistic ways to look at everything in life in general, which is his main goal, has really made me see the light!! I am so grateful for everyone and everything in my life right now, and I'm taking the time to really appreciate everything that is happening. I am on the verge of the future, and really scared of  the drop but think I am ready to fly now, though I'd do anything not to!

As for big influences in my life, how could I not mention my parents? They have moulded a path for me, which though I may stray from sometimes, I will always come back to and I know that it's the right direction.

So I think I'll leave it there for now, please do comment/tweet or message me any suggestions of anything you'd like me to write about/cover in a future post. And/or let me know who inspires/influences you. I'd love to know.

Ready or Not

I think the time has come for me to grow up. There's no point in believing in fantasies when there's no feasible way they could come true. I have to start making things happen.

I've made myself a list of 101 goals fro the future, with dates to achieve them by. I thought it'd be so difficult, but it's surprisingly easy when you actually sit down and think about it. It's basically a list of what you want out of life. Give it a go and let me know what happens! Don't be afraid to put big things on there. But as I was told, don't beat yourself up if you don't reach them by the time allocated, you tried to get there by the time you set, and so you probably will get there eventually and you will be on the right path to accomplish your dreams.

 

So be crazy, say how you feel, do what you want 'cos it's your life and the worst thing in life is to wonder what could have been.

I haven't been fully happy about my life recently, but through meeting some wonderful new friends I am starting to get happier again. Take a chance, you never know what could happen.

7 facts about me & 'Interruption'

I only dislike people if they give me a reason to.
I pride myself on being a positive character.
When I have a lot of things on my mind, I tend to be grouchy
I sometimes write lyrics based on dreams
I like all kinds of music, as long as the lyrics are good
I am a huge McFLY fan
I want the world to know, while the world is not perfect, it is fabulous and we are so lucky to breathe this air.

7 facts about me. I hope you found them interesting. Any comments/disagreements you have are more than welcome in the comments as is any critque of my lyric which will follow. As always, please comment, tweet (@steph_carfrae) or leave me a comment on facebook with suggestions of what subjects to cover in coming weeks!

It's called:
INTERRUPTION

 

V1:

I am talking with you

Trying to shield your view

From the truth

You are a bright light that shines

And I’m trying to keep you from my mind

But you’re never far behind

 

Chorus:

I can’t stop thinking about you

Can’t stop seeing you in my dreams

But when I prepare to admit

Someone walks in

Ruins the atmosphere with an interruption

Throttles my blood with a key distraction

I can’t stop praying that you love me too

Can’t stop believing that this dream will come true

 

V2:

I am sitting in the room

Only a few metres from you

Wondering how I’ll ever say the truth

On a cloudy day you are the sunshine

That pokes a head through making me smile

You make the gloom worthwhile

(Repeat Chorus)

M8:

Someone always

Your girlfriend I should know

How to get you alone

To say hey I never thought I’d feel like this

But baby you are my accomplice

And I need you

Cos I love you

Oh yeah

(Repeat Chorus).
