Thursday Thoughts – Live in its beauty and feel its generosity

When it’s real it can’t be broken. It won’t just fade away like a rainbow after a storm or the sun as the night draws in. When it’s real, it’s here to stay. It’s not there one minute and gone the next. It will stay with you until the last words you speak and the last breath you take. There is no hesitation when it comes to true love, it’s as real as the air we breathe and the touch we feel. It may not always be stable and can get a little hard at times, but the real lies in whether it sticks with you through everything, the good and the bad. It may be the reason you’re hurting or why you’re insecure, but it’s also the reason why you care so much and why your heart feels warm. Nothing compares to this feeling, no amount of money and no amount of worthless attention can amount to the happiness you feel by loving someone and being loved. Never compare it to others; never have expectations of what it should be, just live in the moment with each other. Live in its beauty, and feel its generosity. Treasure it like it’s the most precious thing in the world. Nurture it so its grows and speak only words of kindness. The reason why old flames burn out is because they were never meant to last forever. The flame starts off strong, but eventually withers down to its last flicker. A new flame, if taken care off properly and loved beautifully, can last a lifetime in each other’s hearts. For when it’s real, it will never burn out.

#THURSDAY THOUGHTS: Love has no boundaries

Sometimes you might go through struggles, the feeling that you’re alone trying to fight a war that has already decalared its winner, but as with life, the battle is only as tough as you make it. If you let people make your decisions for you or try to influence you then whose life are you really living? We should respect the opinions of others, listen to them, understand them and use them, but that’s where it ends. No matter who the person is or what their opinion is it shouldn’t determine what your outcome is. For me, love is the most powerful and inspirational thing I can have and be blessed enough to have. So to listen to the opinions of others on the relationship I have or the love I choose to have is something I have learnt to throw to one side and leave it there.

People will always have their perception of what they think you should do or what they think will happen but in no way should that become a factor in your decisions. Society said same sex marriage was wrong, does that mean we should listen? No! Love is what we want it to be; love has no colour, no gender and no barriers. We only get one chance at this life, so do we really want to waste it worrying or feeling abandoned by society? That we haven’t continued to follow years of tradition that should never have even been important enough to have lasted as long as it has? The answer is and will always be NO. Tradition is just that, it’s one generation’s idea that has surpassed its years. It’s time for a new tradition, it’s time to create our own traditions and be the first generation to really know what it’s like to be free and living for ourselves.

Remember love has no boundaries – No race, gender, culture, religion, or language.

‘Thursday Thoughts’: Be the change, It starts with you…

‘THURSDAY THOUGHTS’ Be the change you want to see in the world! 

To see change happen within our world, we should be the change. We can’t expect greatness and achievement by just taking a back seat and waiting for someone else to even make the smallest of changes. Nothing great comes from comfort zones, we should take risks and experience something new that we might have never thought of doing before. To achieve greatness, you have to think like a great leader. To achieve results, you must make the time to to work towards them. Seeing a change in our world, doesn’t just mean making a big change and influencing others. It also means making a change in our own attitudes and having positive impacts within our own lives. You can’t influence the world, unless you start with YOU. 

The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing reflects our character, it allows us to see that we can do so much more then what we limit ourselves to do. If we change how we think then we will change how we feel, and by changing ourselves we change our world. People don’t control our feelings, we do. We have the power to feel sadness, happiness, anger and love and nobody can control them unless we give them permission. 

Be the change in your world, because that can influence others to be the change in their world. 

‘Thursday Thoughts’: Don’t give up on your dreams, keep sleeping!

ImageToday’s ‘Thursday Thoughts’ is all about never giving up. I was inspired today by simply just thinking positively and believing that i am capable of achieving anything I set out to achieve and with an open mind and positive mind there is nothing out of reach. For a long time I believe I had a negative outlook on life and I didn’t see all the possibilities out there because I wasn’t looking through fresh eyes. However, Once I took a step back and opened my eyes to a new perspective and gave myself a bit more praise I achieved happiness and a goal I set for myself had finally been achieved. 

Whether you have goals, dreams, ambitions or even a plan that you wish to someday accomplish and achieve, there is one thing that you should always tell yourself; NEVER GIVE UP because you might miss a great opportunity thats right around the corner. If one route is blocked, take another, because life without ambition is dull. Although it may not happen straight away, or might take a lot of hard work and time just remember the journey is just as important as the achievement in itself. 

Remember that guy that gave up? Neither does anybody else. A dream is important, but it is what you do with that dream and how hard you work for it that sets you apart from the crowd.

 

‘Thursday Thoughts’: If we judge a fish…

Image

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

― Albert Einstein

This weeks ‘THURSDAY THOUGHTS’ is a quote by Albert Einstein, Although we can’t really credit him for saying this one as their is no evidence to prove he did, it has be used by educators and people for decades. With that being said, I couldn’t agree more with this quote, it teaches us not to judge people but most importantly that it is inappropriate to judge someone or and animal on focusing on the skills they don’t possess rather then on what skills and success they do. For this quote specifically understanding that a fish specialises in swimming superbly for long distances and not climbing a tree which is non-existent in this context shows that the skill lies within its ability to swim and therefore should be praised for that. 

The central point of this quotation is that every individual should be aloud to pursue their strengths, if they are good at one thing more than another they should pride themselves on that one thing and make it the best that they can and in doing so their weaknesses should be overpowered. We all have the ability to grow and accomplish what we set out to, we should believe we are capable of something and put all our energies into what we know we can do and not what we can’t otherwise we would miss out . Not every person or animal for that matter will be good at the same things, we are all different and unique and should support one another in achieving our and their full potential. Children should be taught from a young age that it is okay not to be perfect at everything and if you are not good at something in particular then it doest make you stupid. Find that one thing and make the most out of it and create something stronger and greater then anything you could have imagined and then you are on the right path. 

With that being said, some are great athletes, great writers, great musicians, great academics but the one thing they all have in common is they took the skills they knew they were great at and created something positive from it and didn’t let any weaknesses get it their way. Focusing on one strong skill can be much more effective then trying to succeed at a few average ones. 

Just because someone isn’t skilled in one area, doesn’t mean they aren’t skilled in another. Let me know your thoughts!
