Question Is: Are we truly awake? & How do we know if this life is just a dream or reality?
In truth we don’t know, all we can do is live this life to the fullest and be the best we can be to achieve whatever it is we set out to be complete, happy and feel as whole as possible living the life we desire or working towards ‘that life’ ‘That Life’ is the bit that connects us all in this life, as each of us quest to pursue our dreams and live out our days as happy as we possibly can, we need each other in order to attain the very life experiences that bring us more of what we seek….which is more Love, Peace, Unity, Harmony, Comfort and Joy for without these elements on our lives we experience the actual opposites being Hate, War, Segregation, Sadness and Unlimited Negativities.
If our nature is to please other people and to serve others in this world, our instincts will always lead us to situations that allow us to demonstrate just how well we can bring happiness and change people’s lives for the better…we become caregivers, creators, helpers, teachers, parents and find it easy to take on job roles that enable us to ‘please’ and ‘care’. We need each other in this world and together we make it a better place.
Everything we do for others to make life good for them, brings us happiness. So we owe it to ourselves to communicate with ‘self’, be honest and open with ourself & continue what we do well for ourselves first and foremost. This has to include reality checks and regular self health checks for mind and body!
Self Love, Self Care, Self Truth. Maintenance of health from mind, body to spirit/soul is essential and paramount to a lasting sense of wellbeing and promotes longevity of life.
It can be very easy to get caught up in world or community events, local issues or lose sight of our personal goals because bigger issues affect the status quo. It can be easy to get carried away, over drawn into social media and the hype of being instantly connected to the World Wide Web or WWW and starts from when we wake in the morning – we check the time, check our phones, latest notifications/updates/posts/likes/dislikes/followers and who is up or down thumbing us and others.
We check our diary, emails, messages, social media updates and possibly the husband, wife, partner, kids, dog, cat and other additions the community of our heart…it goes on through the night sometimes constant checking and re-checking of external sources of what brings us more ‘feelings or emotions’ be they good bad or ugly.
How often do we check ourselves?
Upon waking we check external beings via mobile devices and we ensure everything outside of ourselves made it through the night, that all is all right & recharged.
But what about you?
Did you check yourself?
How are you doing?
Do we check our well-being?
How is your health today? You also need to recharge and restore yourself in order to be the best version of you, to be healthy, happy and to last as long as possible in this life. So, as we check up on each other so too must we check up on ourselves first!
As I sat searching for words to share with the world, I too had to pause, look around and check myself ‘pinch if doubt’ popped into my mind and I smiled knowing that I was all right, and I hope that you are well also. For we are all one as part of the human race.
Even if it’s just through reading this post we are connected just that bit more! In truth we are all awake and connect with each other one by one as we raise the vibration of this planet. And as we unite we are all simply connecting the dots in our pursuits of happiness, living the life we chose to live.
People Change, Things Come, People Go…And “So What?”
Everything happens for a reason?
Yeah right!! ??
Sometimes we do not see that reason, we only see the event or situation – often becoming overwhelmed by the change in circumstances.
Change has to occur in order for there to be growth, without growth there is death – therefore Change is Essential To Life’s Growth!
So when you notice people changing, coming, going in and out of your lives – why not say “so what”
So what? Let them be. They are growing. Let Them. Do YOU. Life goes on, it has too.
We have to keep our focus on what WE are doing and WHERE we are going, without getting sucked into other peoples drama or depressions!
It can be easy to get caught up in making people stay with us or trying to force our way of life upon others. And visa versa with those who try over impose themselves, beliefs, isms, skisms and stretch pass their mark in your personal space. Well mek dem dress back asap!
Change is essential to life’s growth, we must embrace change, work with it, we must BE the change we wish to see in this world. Life is a beautiful river that flows, streams into all sorts of nooks and crannies, flowing wherever there is a pathway, even a new path will still see water!
When was the last time you done something for the first time, something you haven’t done before?
Peace, Love & Thanks for reading.
To be alone inside your head
Muffled muted screams
Never truly seen
Always smiling to please
This is a place no one should belong
Yet for too long I lived there
Day turns nights today into yesterday
Upon waking each morning I pray
Not giving up in my quest
For me Its You, my, my safe space…
My safe space is YOU without hesitation.

It’s been a long time
Since I’ve been online
Minimal activity on social media
Offline is fine
The tranquility of my mind is sublime
Tranquility of being detached
Unaware of the goings on of others
Out of the loop
Simply living life as I should be
You may think this is my Reclusion
This is my
