About Me

My photo
I love the sunrise. I love staring out into the horizon in front of me, feeling the sun's glow, and losing myself in my own world of thoughts... I love being awake when the world around me is fast asleep, and staring into the distance at the tiny glimmering ball of fire as it shyly creeps into my world… Each sunrise brings to me a new day and with it a fresh start. An opportunity to do things differently, see things from a different point of view... but best of all, an opportunity to ponder over the day ahead, giving a new chance every day to live...

Livin' on a prayer...

Browsing through my archives, I found an old blog post of mine, which I have managed to retrieve at a very apt time in my life, particularly as I feel like I'm running around a lot and putting a lot of (unnecessary? necessary?) pressure on myself. 

It's amazing looking at the nineteen year old me... and realising I have not changed a single bit. Worrying, ain't it? Isn't it odd what you really need to hear... well... comes from within you? Quite literally?!

There comes a moment in your life when you just have to let yourself be. When you know you can learn learn learn explore explore explore keep on questioning, thinking, debating, discussing, testing yourself and pushing yourself to the limit... but sometimes just... being... existing is enough... 
Sometimes you have to just let that storm in that teacup be. I have a million and one thoughts and questions in my head right now, and I long to just sit with someone and talk the night away... but at the same time, I know that if that person was to be by my side right now, all I'd do is just sit there in silence.
There are so many things in this world to learn about, to experience, to talk about, to discuss and to constantly keep on stimulating yourself... but... I don't know how to explain it... it's like... the power of life itself is enough, because the presence of that body next to you is conversation enough in its own breathing silence, and you don't need any more answers. For that moment, at least. Maybe with a good drink (or three) in your hand. 
Just let yourself be.
And on that note, I go off to sleep....
And on that note, I go off to start my Friday morning. For anyone reading this, here's hoping the storm in your teacup is tempering itself down to a calmer rhythm, too!

(Fun fact: This photo was actually taken at sunrise, by Sunrise, around half an hour from my home town... wait, what, your mind isn't blown yet?! Sheesh. So much for trying to be poetic with the little boat and the rocks behind it that it's escaping the horizon in front of it that it is reaching out for, yadda yadda yadda...)
