Make your own reality
"Someone once told me the definition of hell; on your last day on earth, the person you could have become will meet the person you became" Anonymous
My passion, the thing that gets me out of bed everyday, is to simply empower everyone, to 'show up and own up' as themselves.
Not to be scared of what others think.
Not to allow judgement or social norms, to restrict their passion and creativity.
Not to loose parts of their soul along the way and only realise they have done so, when it is too late to get it back.
Don't just challenge the status quo - smash it into pieces, with the raw beauty, truth and inspiration, of what it truly means to be a human being living life fully, not caged by optical illusions and meaningless bullsh•t.
Get out there, take your space, use your voice, be yourself and shake your world, until only the truth remains.
And once the disbelief had gone and the panic abated, they finally came together as one.
To look after each another and protect the vulnerable.
And then a beautiful thing happened.
People began to find their way home, to a world beyond the optical illusion, where humanity thrived, without competition, fear of loss, or hatred, nourished by Mother Nature and one another.
In amongst the suffering, the chaos and the fear, people entered the unknown - some willingly and some not.
And what they found was simplicity, peace, connection, but most of all love.
For Mother Nature was not punishing them, she was saving them. From themselves before it was too late.
And after the storm has passed, the world was forever changed.
Humans turned up to their lessons, they allowed Mother Nature to guide them and at the end of each day, they all returned home, full of love and courage, ready to face the next one.
With much love, please stay safe and stay home
I’m not writing for the people who think what I write is crap.
I’m not writing for the people who want to maintain the status quo.
I’m not writing for the people who have no intention, of ever finding their truth.
I’m writing for the people who believe there is a better, different way to be.
I’m writing for the people who feel alone, in their quest for a more meaningful life.
I’m writing for the people who are only ever told they don’t fit in, to tell them they are simply in the wrong place, they have always fitted in somewhere.
I’m writing for the people who although exhausted by life, still feel the ache of hope, but need a helping hand to realise it.
But most of all, I’m writing for the people who truly give a sh*t about others.
So, please don’t mistake me for someone who gives a toss about what you think, if your not one of the people I am writing for, because I don’t and neither should you.
This was part of my birthday invite for my 40th birthday.
Next year will be my 50th.
And I have every intention of growing old disgracefully and challenging the bullsh*t that surrounds ageing, particularly for women.
Life is to be lived every single day and beauty is to be experienced no matter what your age.
B*llocks to airbrushing, botox and ridiculously thin stereotypes.
