Life and Death – Friend or Foe?

3

“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”

Death is such a funny concept! It has been such a strange experience to lose such a close loved one. Who, as you experience the loss, you realise what a large and influencing part of your life they really were!

This changes so much of my core identity now. I took her for granted, always expecting her to be around. The second mother who looks after you! Cares for you! Always! Has now been lost to me and is no longer a part of my life. How do we move forward?

At first, you know you begin to repress the hurt; the brain has no way of comprehending such a major loss, so a weird survival instincts kick in and you function, we organise and somehow survive the loss, “getting through” those first couple of days. You go through a week or two and you believe yourself to be surviving until you sit in your quiet moment and realise that you have not been sleeping, your eating pattern have been non-existent and the lack of care you’ve been treating yourself has basically gone unchecked!

The loss, it still flows through me. But we survive! How??? We must begin with looking after ourselves, it might not reduce the loss but, it might increase the healing! For that’s all I look for, some way to move forward, without this profound feeling of sadness!

My brain refuses to comprehend the understanding that I know I will get to a time where I am almost used to her not being here! What my life would look like with her having not been in it. My life; who I was going to be and the direction it was taking has now completely been changed by this experience!

I am currently going through a major life changing experience in my life; in the eye of the storm hoping at the end of all of this something positive comes out of it… A drive to achieve and experience all life has to offer, for it is too short and fragile and MUST BE lived to the fullest!!!! Go after the things you want, love whomever you want, be whoever you want to be, be you so completely and utterly in the most fullest way!

She continues to teach me and enrich my life even in her death and all I can think in this moment is, how grateful I am to have had her in my life! So my final words of this post will simply be… thank you!

Go out into the world and live life fully,

Sincerely,

Inspirational Quotes

Dare to be yourself!

Sometimes I find that it’s a challenge just to be myself! Everyone seems to have an idea and/or opinion on who I should be and sometimes their voices seem to drown out my own voice in my OWN head… which is slightly distressing as a concept.

So, I created this video which includes some of the best quotes that I have encountered, about embracing who I am as an individual, no matter how strange it may be to others! Just a small reminder when I stray from my path.

I thought it might help others so I have decided to post it on my blog. It is a little personal as the music is something I also created.

I hope it helps!

You are beautiful, I am beautiful, we are beautiful!

Sincerely,

MsIHaveAVoice

 

 

The Journey Begins

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

It begins!

For many years I have been debating about creating a blog for many reasons. I was interested in the concept because as I journey through this world, things seem to interest me, confuse me and some topics I just want to discuss or shine a light on.

Recently a life changing event happened whereby one day I woke up and due to this experience, I began to see the world different! I’m not sure if it was my grief or my new found appreciation for life but, I began to have little patience for what I call “the bullshit of life.”

The egos, the pretence, the lack of respect for others, the hate, the fear, the excuses and worst; the justification for the excuses! I wanted to scream out, “Is this what life has become, the god forsaken ‘normal’ which has now become accepted?”

Some of us see through it and are quickly labelled “sensitive,” “over-thinkers,” “naive” and like some strange animal… “artists!” As if we do not see the world for the reality that it is, instead we apparently see it through ‘rose-coloured glasses.’

What confused me was that, I believe that it is them that see things strangely, wanting so badly to believe in the falseness that they have created for themselves. Justifying their choices, explaining why they do not go after the very thing that sparks their souls. Why instead, they succumb to the comatose state of going into a job everyday that they do not enjoy and that brings no light into their soul. The only benefit is the pay cheque they receive at the end of the month so they can go and enjoy their life for the one week holiday they will be booking in a month’s time!

Why have so many chosen this life? I know some may say that they have no choice. But, we always have a choice! They are not always easy! Yes, we must eat. Yes, we need a roof over our heads, we must look after our family but, do we need the next Apple product? The next designer label clothing? The new bigger TV?

If it is a choice between that and perusing a dream that can one day be your full time job, maybe after some time of grafting, hard work and sacrifice, you may find something that makes you feel fulfilled, passionate and dare I say excited… then I must admit, I do not understand the choices being made!

Please enlighten me!

I hope that I am someone who follows the thing that sets my spirit flying, where I fight to be who I am, to love who I am… rough edges and all! Wanting to learn, wanting to grow, wanting to help and be of service and I will write about my journey and experiences in doing this! It is not an easy journey but, it is fulfilling! And maybe I will also receive some help along the way.

I have yet to decide what form this blog will take! I am at the stage where i am enjoying the freedom and liberation of seeing what may take my interest. But I do know that when I created it, it’s main purpose was so I can discuss… and I am! Open to discussions, especially if your views are different from mine.

Together we may be able to make a difference; to ourselves and to others.

Be kind to yourself and to others.

Sincerely,
