Writing Through Different Perspectives

I don’t have experience with losing someone to drugs or alcohol but I always have sympathy for those going through it. I had a 4 hour train ride and this is one poem I came up with.

Toxic Mess

So intoxicated, you’ve been like this for days yet

You find a way to say, you and tipsey have never met

I guess there is some truth to that it is usually a brief meeting I bet

The alcohol gets way over your head I fear daily I’ll find you stone cold dead

I understand you feel your life is a mess, but if you could take some time to free your emotions and just have rest

You’ll find that your soul knows you best. Although these times might appear dark. I’m pleading you to claim back your colourful heart. So we can find a new canvas to start

5 Ways To Brighten Up Your Day

Tired of work or life in general controlling your mood? Instead letting the outside world effect you internally, how about you switch it up and let your mood effect your outside world.

P.S. you only want to do that if you’re in a positive, happy mood.

 

I put together a list of things I implemented in my life, to make my day bright even on a rainy day.

#1 Be observant and aware of your emotions. Acknowledge what stresses you out, and what makes you angry. Pay attention to how those things effect your whole day. The great thing about observing these things is that you have an advantage of being able to solve the things that are bothering you.

 

#2 Change your perspective. If you can’t change the things that are bothering you. Then you have to change your perspective on the situation. You have the power to decide how you feel, so start by deciding to be a little more optimistic. Possibly the problems you are facing are only temporary, maybe it’s helping you be a stronger person, the problems you are facing could be fuel, motivation to make a big change in your life. Looking at your problems from a different perspective can sometimes show you that they are not real problems or problems that can be easily solved.

 

#3 Predict the future. Decide and believe you are going to have a good day before it has even officially started. I do this when I take up an agency jobs, the reality is I don’t like the jobs but for some reason deciding that I am going to have a good day made it so much easier. I honestly have a good day, I think that’s because I believe that I’m going to have a good day. So the night before or the first thing in the morning plan, out your day. With the things that normally bother you, plan in your head that you’re not going to let it bother you. Your day will not go exactly as you planned but because you are conscious and self aware you can manipulate your feelings towards the day.  The way you feel inside can effect what happens outside.

 

#4 Have something to look forward to. You know the feeling you get where the day to your booked holiday is getting closer. Well you should create that feeling with other things not just holidays. Discover your passions again. If you love reading treat yourself to some books. Make time for yourself and do what excites you. Maybe you need something big, like follow your passion and start your own business. Whatever is make sure you have things in your life that you can look forward to. So start planning for your self.

 

#5 Self love, the confidence that everybody needs. Notice how you tolerate things because confidence is stopping you from dealing with it. Confidence is the key to success and happiness, love your self be proud of your achievements, be selfish sometimes. You deserve to be loved and respected, and if you want more people to treat you how you like to be treated, then you have to love and respect yourself to. I’m sure people will love and respect you without you loving yourself. But it is important that you do it will encourage not to put up with being mistreated, it will encourage you to do things that make you happy and it will give you the strength and confidence to do the things you’ve always wanted to do so that most days become bright.

 

Don’t Get Lost In The Dark

Don’t get lost in the dark, no one will find you. If you have found yourself already their, only you can get yourself out. Find a tiny light and follow it until it gets brighter and brighter.

I recently started posted videos on my Youtube channel. Would appreciate if you could take a look.

 

Persistence, Personal Development

 

The fact of continuing in an opinion or course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.

 

Persistence is the journey of manifestation. Dreaming and thinking of your goal until you have it in plain sight. Persistence is habitual behaviour, not everyone has learnt that trait and that’s okay. You need to find your motivation, your desire. The thing that’s going to trigger you, to get all that you need and want out of life. You get that by finding out who you are and what you want. Because if you’re not 100% sure of who you are, then maybe what you think you want is not what you truly desire.

Persistence guarantees your success if it’s focused in the right direction. For example; your goal could be to lose 15 pounds in weight, by going on a diet. But if you put efforts into the wrong direction you could be persistent in constantly going on a diet, yoyo dieting. Make sure your vision and desire is clear. You want to make sure you are persistent in the right direction. Make your focus directed at positive polarity.

I recently heard a talk from Bob Proctor, “your persistence must be continuously connected to your desired vision”

Persistence keeps you going through every obstacle you can imagine. Believe in your struggle, believe that it will guide you to happiness and success. “If you’re going through hell; keep on going. – Winston Churchill

Understand the law of cause of effect as I believe it will make persistence makes sense. Context determines the content. A quote I read from life purpose info

“Good deeds bring good results.          Bad deeds bring bad results.             Your own deeds bring your own results”

For example growing a tomato, the context what you put in such as; the seed, the soil, water and the light. The content is the growth of the tomato. Own effort, own result.

Use persistence to work for you and not against you. “The power plant doesn’t have energy, it generates energy.”

My summary of being persistent, is to have the image of your goal in your subconscious mind. Then focus on your behaviour, act on that image and be persistent to make it your reality. Have a high level of expectancy, believe it is possible and that you have the strength to make it happen.

Hope this inspired you to go after your dreams. Remember everyday is a new slate, don’t live with regrets.

Presence, Mindset Is Everything

 

The state or fact of existing, occurring or being present.

We often forget to take time to be in the ‘now’ it’s common to jump ahead and constantly think of the future and look back at the past. With that habit, we can often be oblivious to what is already present. This brings me to the point of being in the present moment awareness. Have gratitude for what we have right now and what is around us. Think about everything that’s good in your life.

Today’s society is caught up in the online world and spend more time online than being present in real life. “Don’t let your online presence be greater than your real life presence”

Open your conscience mind through meditation. Understand that we are infinite creators therefore you have the power to attract your reality. Be present and take action to create the reality that you desire.

Remember mindset is everything, your only limit is you. Aspire to inspire, have a wonderful day!

The Beginning of Life at Sea

The beginning of my journey of life at sea as a chef started when I embarked on a cruise ship in Sweden Stockholm August 2015. I was excited and scared of the unknown I also just turned 21!

I embark on the ship 9am on the dot and got taken to the HR managers office, she gave me forms to fill out introduced me to the executive chef, as he showed me the way to my room he warned me to becareful of some of the men on the ship I had no idea what he meant (I found out what he meant very quickly). I got settled in my single cabin and got ready to start work. I was mislead with food in the crew mess when I arrived there was burgers, hot dogs, fries, icecream! I was so happy the days after that is was rice, rice and rice also some meat and fish. Seriously no exaggeration there was rice for breakfast lunch and dinner. I was definitely mislead😂

I started my journey of the unknown and to be honest it was scary! The ship was massive to me but compared to most ships it was small, the first few days I always ended up getting lost. When I walked through corridors I felt like men would stare at me like fresh meat, I’ve never been exposed to so many men in my working career and I’ve never been noticed by everyone but everyone noticed as there was only few females on board. I panicked because I realised there was only few women on board and hundreds of men. Not only that but I discovered I was the youngest on board and I thought I was not going to make any friends (oh how wrong I was😂). The first 2 weeks I would call my Mum and tell her I’m leaving at the end of the month. I was so convinced I was going to leave.

Out clubbing with a few friends

So during my first week it was quite daunting. I learned how to handle the persistent men and not to let them bother me. I decided I had to change my mindset and be open minded and positive. I found a young girl similar to my age and we bonded straight away. I went out at every port and made more friends and life at sea didn’t seem so bad I started to see the benefits. I learned that when things get tough you have push through for things to get better “there is always a light at the end of a tunnel.”

I got to travel around Europe for free. I made friends from around the world. I had parties every week and I had my own cabin for the month. I got to learn about Filipino culture, Indian culture and plenty more as I met so many people with different nationalities. So that was my first month on board. Not such a great start but it got better very quickly. An update on my second month will be up soon!
