1 Year to the Day x

It's official.. I started keeping a diary exactly 1 year ago today..

On 31st March 2010, something changed.. and I suddenly had the urge to start writing.

So I did.. every single day.. for 1 whole year.

I honestly can't believe it.

1 Year account of my life, written down, treasured.

I've had so many ups, and some downs.. but it's all there.

Coupled with my daily photos, there it is.. my life in photos & words.

I'm not done though.. I'll keep going, until maybe one day, something will change again.. and I stop.

But until then, I'll continue to record my life.

So that one day, I'll look back and smile.. at how naive I was, at the way I looked or the things I said. At all the laughs, and stupid tears, at the inside jokes, and the rollercoaster that is my life.

It's been long, and hard at times, but it has been so worth it

Finding Meaning x

I want to do something that means something to somebody..
Write something, capture something, say something, do something, that's meaningful..
That speaks to someone, and makes a significant impact on their life..
I want to inspire someone to be great, and have them inspire others..

I want to find meaning..
In the meaningless.. in the meaningful..
In words and music, in the world around me ..
I want to find meaning..
And help others find it too..

What are you afraid of?

Is it Rational? Irrational? A bit of both?

Does it take you off guard, a wave lasting just a moment.. or does it stay with you all the time, a constant presence?

Does it lurk in the dark, or haunt you in the light?

How do you react? What emotions do you feel when you're scared?

Fear? Terror? Anxiety? Excitement? Can you feel the adrenaline rushing through your veins?

What would you try if you had no fear?...

We're all a afraid of something, whether we admit it or not..

The question is..

Do you control your fear? ...or does your fear control you?

Knock Knock..x

When life comes knocking,

When will you answer?

Life can be scary at times.. Daunting.. but you've just got to make it through all the bad times to get to the good.
It's there, the happiness, the joy, the inspiration.. sometimes we can be overshadowed with all the negatives, they hang there over our lives, bringing us down..
But through all the pain, and stress and confusion, there's a door..
A door to who you want to be, who you can be and who you will be.

True Happiness is behind that locked door, so close and yet so far.. but if you don't even try to open it, you'll never get to the other side. So, find the key to all the good things in your life and hold onto it.

When life comes knocking, see past all the words that hold you back, see the future, see the person you've always wanted to be.

And maybe one day, you'll really live.

Knock Knock.....

So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you. - Luke11:9

How long would it take?... x

How long would it take?

If you went missing right now.. if you collapsed in your room, or even worse.. how long would it take before someone noticed?

If the door was locked and the curtains closed.. at what point would someone be worried enough to call the police? Break down the door? How long would it take? .. Too long?

If someone knocked on your door, and you didn't answer, would they just assume you weren't in, that you were sleeping or just didn't want to talk. No one would know, no one would help.

They might text or try to ring, but people screen calls all the time. You can go days without seeing people, talking to people, it's not unheard of.
You would just lie there, or disappear, and no one would have any idea.

I wonder just how long it would take before people got worried, when they don't just say it's strange, when would they take action? Hours? Days? Weeks even?

What would people miss about you? What would tip people off? Where should you be? When? Who would you see? Who would see you? Would they find it strange if you weren't there?

Why would anyone comment on a student skipping lectures? It happens all the time.. skip a few parties.. pop home for the weekend.. shut in their room doing assignments.

The truth is, no matter how much everyone may say they would notice straight away.. that's a lie, because most wouldn't.

Just think, how long has it been since you last saw some of your friends, do you panic when you don't see them for a day or 2?

It's a scary thought, but the truth is, we all live in our own little worlds.. and it's easy to forget about those around you.

So go out, and make an impact on those around you, be unforgettable, be incredible, become a part of someone's life, so they can't imagine life without you there beside them.

..And next time they don't answer the phone, or reply when you knock.. think for a second..

..what if it was you... x

What's the point? x

Why keep a diary?
Why take a photo?
Why talk about the old days?

To remember a moment that went by so fleetingly?
So you never forget how happy you were?
To try and make sense of your life?

When every second is just that, a second, how do we hold on to it?
If it just slips away, and a new one begins, just like the one before. Over and over again.

We have to cling on to those special moments at every chance we get. Preserve them.

Because one day we'll look back, and what will we find? Nothing but a few hazy memories.

So don't look back with regrets. Take photos, write down your thoughts, live your life.

It'll be so worth it in the long run. Trust me.

The water is rushing in, I feel it on my skin
Our boat is sinking now
I wake up, I grab my things
As the waves keep Rollin’ in
I ask myself
“Oh what’s the point?”
“What’s the point of it all?”

5 Minutes of My Life x

Sitting on chair.. Types on keyboard.. Looks at TV.. Looks back at computer.. Turns to look at watch.. Stares at the keyboard.. Sighs.. Sits back in chair.. Puts hands behind head.. Closes eyes for a few seconds.. Crosses arms.. Leans on desk.. Cracks knuckles.. Coughs.. Sits on foot.. Puts other foot on chair.. Leans on knee.. Listens to TV.. Scrolls through Facebook.. Finds nothing.. Scrolls again.. Plays with hair.. Plays with hair tie.. Ties hair up.. Looks at post-it notes.. Looks at timetable.. Types on keyboard again.. Rubs eye.. Stretches.. Yawns.. Uploads photos.. Rubs neck.. Eats caramel shortbread.. Looks at TV.. Looks at computer.. Sighs.

..... What an interesting life I lead...x
