Sometimes someone may come into your life, who is far from perfect, but you see the hidden gems in them. You see the best in them, their warm heart, their beautiful face, their young words of wisdom encased in an old soul. You think this is it! This is the awesome person that I may have been waiting for all my life, maybe as a friend or maybe more.
But as months go by and your bond grows, your insticts are not 100% agreeing with your vision and very soon, the real person emerges, but this time these imperfections are more that that, they are an innocent and naive weapon, in the fight to control the situation and you. They are an intentional stab in the back, because you did not do what they wanted you to do. Because you weren’t there, they quickly replaced you with someone else. While you were expected to wait for them when they demanded it and ‘told’ you. And worse of all, they turned to one of your own friends, whom you know is a good person and known for years. And you are left with a feeling of betrayal, hurt and pain, all the whilst knowing that your friend although not interested in the same way, is also being used and they do not reply to you.
You toughen up and come to your senses, you feel pity for their insecurities, hurt by the redicule of your own hurt – as if it is some sort of joke, that lies seemed to have come flooding out like a volcano with multiple colours of lava flowing into the other. And you take back your own power, control and sense of calm in your life, by blocking them out from yours, as much as possible.
You feel a sense of peace, because for once in your life, you love yourself enough, to set yourself free. Free from the pain, the anguish and hurt, and not waste your life giving this person chances, but know that you can find someone else who will care about you and respect you no end. Even if they have not entered your life yet, you are confident and self-assured that they will do!
Some friends come and go – so do some loves. But the one thing I want you to remember, is to never leave your own soul. Never leave the true you. Never let yourself cry or be in pain longer than you need to be, to rid yourself from it naturally. Be there for yourself no matter what. To take the role of the father, the mother, and the child within you, when each situation calls for it. But most of all, to be the bestest ever friend to yourself, to love yourself implicitly, and to not settle for anything less than than what is good and right for you. Remember these 3 simple words to say to yourself – I LOVE YOU!
Always stay positive and be you.

We only get one life. We can chose to live it as an ‘ordinary’ person, doing what ‘ordinary’ people do. Or we can choose a different path. We can choose to be extraordinary. But … most people won’t. Because it is not easy. It is hard. It is challenging and that can be terrifying. Some people will mock you, some people will leave you, some people will insult you, some people will say nasty things to you … But some people will follow you. Some people will listen to you and be lead by you. Some people will see how brave you are and want to be brave right back, because you inspired them to be, more than they had hoped for themselves. More than they could have ever dreamed of being, and more than they could have ever wished for. Their life changed, because one day, you changed your own, and that in turn had a knock on effect.
See, when we are negative, it can spread like a disease. But when we are positive, that can spread love and light to others. It can reach out a hand and offer them the eternal flame of light in which to see. And once that flame of light touches their soul, they cannot look back, they have to keep moving forward, with every breath in their body and every thought in their life. Because when you take courage to be great, to be better than your current circumstances dictate, your state has made that revolutionary change, that means you cannot change back. You can no longer be ordinary, because your mind has been broken and freed from that emotional state that only lets you see what is in front of you, and never what may be. Never those possibilities, that only someone with more than just the face of this earth, can unearth. You have finally come alive and woken up to you. Now there is nothing more you can do, but to explore this world, this new light and let it into your life and light up your world. You were born for greatness and don’t ever forget that! Ever again! You can’t, you won’t, because now you have been touched by that which you did not know, but now you do!!
