If — BY RUDYARD KIPLING
(‘Brother Square-Toes’—Rewards and Fairies)
If you can keep your head when all about you   
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,   
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;   
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;   
    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;   
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;   
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,   
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,   
    Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,   
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,   
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

Sometimes there really are no words to explain.
No cues to help convey the insane.
Nothing to think of that bring clarity.
It’s all just a cloud of fog and the wide unknown.
Just keep going, just one step at a time.

One of the beautiful, joyful things in life. Ice creme, oh lala. The excitement, that of which was greater and deeper than that shared of the 2 and 5 year old hand in hand.

I found this note I wrote a few months after my mum passed away and I was in the midst of personal turmoil:
Grief is a strange thing. I was told this by someone who not long before the loss I experienced, faced the loss of someone they loved dearly.
Like the slow waves that reach the top of your toes, and then slowly leaves to go back into the sea. The gravity of grief ebbs and flows with the changing weather day to day.
Death is not something easily to converse, let alone to be confronted with. My silence only aided to the surreal circumstances that I found myself in.
I knew it would happen one day and that day came and slowly unraveled every piece of my life, like a hurricane that knew no bounds, wrecking havoc but presenting silence in the eye of this very storm.

A poem which I discovered today and like to share:
Destruction
BY CHARLES BAUDELAIRE
TRANSLATED BY C. F. MACINTYRE
At my side the Demon writhes forever,
Swimming around me like impalpable air;
As I breathe, he burns my lungs like fever
And fills me with an eternal guilty desire.
Knowing my love of Art, he snares my senses,
Apearing in woman's most seductive forms,
And, under the sneak's plausible pretenses,
Lips grow accustomed to his lewd love-charms.
He leads me thus, far from the sight of God,
Panting and broken with fatigue into
The wilderness of Ennui, deserted and broad,
And into my bewildered eyes he throws
Visions of festering wounds and filthy clothes,
And all Destruction's bloody retinue.

“Nothing in life is permanent”
I read this on a social media post a few months ago and I used this as my personal belief that everything is in ebb and flow motion. This continual belief has held me, given me hope in the unknown and also that despite our resistance, change is continuous.

I was listening to an Oprah podcast this week and the following was quoted and it really resonated with me:
“Victory is in the process, not the outcome”.
So often I would sit on ideas and not even start them, with the perfectionist in me succeeding to argue that it will be no good. So I don’t even try. It has been a conflict within me since I was at uni, though I actually believe (and I should really cultivate this in my day to day), that the trying is the success even if it ends in failure.
So here is my own reminder, just do it. Try it, make it, create it, share it.

What I would like to have to taught my younger self (she probably wouldn’t have listened but worth a try):
To feel, accept and embrace all the pain and tremendous painful moments you will experience and draw the meaning of the very root of the pain, to know that this is an opportunity for the deepest growth you will experience. The darkest days, will be your brightest lights.
To embrace creativity with all its glory that will fill you with confidence, belief and a ton of fun along the way. That you can create and make anything you like and learn along the way, but just the mere process of doing, will give you such a good feeling and allow you to go from step to step.
That you never needed any kind of substance to do or be someone and use it as an excuse. You are just as good as you are, just as you are. Drinking alcohol only devoids you of the true person you really are and serves you a mask that misrepresents everything that is truly important. It’s a waste of time and time is precious. Soak up the nature on a Saturday morning instead and cook those delicious meals.
To listen to your gut feeling. It’s there, it’s your navigator. Don’t ignore it altogether.
That your inner most fear, your inner child, the most inner you will pull your strings and cause chaos, when none is needed. To remain calm, and worry less and to be in the moment right there and then. No comparison needed. Let love be as it flows.
And lastly to follow that aim, even when served with a no. Don’t always accept no. You will find that, where there is a will, there is a way.
And why don’t you learn an instrument and read poetry?!

“I will not have you, without the darkness that hides within you. I will not let you have me without the madness that makes me. If our demons cannot dance, neither we.” ~ Nikita Gill
Those words, formed in one short paragraph but that serve to remind myself to discover that hidden inner being to truly accept those for who they really are. There in is letting go, of all that you didn’t think you could. There in is freedom. There in is love.

As the sunshine warms
my face,
I feel life’s full embrace.
As nature around me, meet its spring.
My inner me is ready to swing.
