Meditation, finding inner peace…

So I have taken some time off to fix some things in life and one of those things was finding my inner peace….

I have always been in love with the film eat, pray, love but I noticed that I can’t just do what she done in the film so why not do it in my bedroom with some candles and well, yeah I think you get the idea. So my first step was to find some candles, I’m actually quite scared of candles since they can burn my house down but I just had to get over that stupid idea, so I bought some in IKEA! They actually smelled pretty good!

After my 2 hour shopping for candles, well to be honest I actually found the candles in the first mite that was inside the shop but for the British out there, you must know that once you get inside IKEA with your friends, then you just simply have to show them your amazing FAKE houses!! My first meditation day was a wreck…. The only thing that I could concentrate on was the walking dead new show that was passing that day! So I waited a few days, actually more like 2 weeks and then tried it again, and I still didn’t get it and then that’s when it kicked in, I needed to do this when I was tired!

Being absolutely exhausted, I tried it again and it worked. My mind went into a relaxing trance that I just couldn’t get out of, it was amazing, I felt so calm the next day and happier too. So if you are stressed or just simply bored, then sit down and just clear your mind…..

Its harder than you might think but it is worth it, take my word for it. 😉

W.T.F

Its been a long time since i haven’t posted anything, why you ask?? Well w.t.f, im working to feel! It is just me saying that im working on how to feel, with everything happening there is a lot of doubt about myself, so w.t.f!!
The past months has been a disaster, a lot of crying and deppresion( a post about that will be made).
So here iam back again, and hopefully i will get back to what i love the most, writing…

Wonders of London buses?

Isn’t it lonely when you have the top deck of a bus all to yourself?

Well that is just what happened yesterday with me. Its nice to have a bus all to yourself as you can eat without anyone staring at you or talk in the phone without the worry that someone will hear your conversation.

So with my headphones on, music blaring and with the bus all to myself i started thinking and thought, “who does the voice of the bus announcements?” And that is when i started thinking, i have been here for 6 years and i don’t really know who the person that gives directions is so i decided to do some research and this is what i found out.

The bus announcer has an actual name, i thought she was just a computer voice but its turns out that she isn’t, her name is Emma Hignett. She is the voice of London transport, which is surely amazing!

So a lesson learned and done, and i mean to myself too….

The perks of using the Social Network

I have been here in London for 6 years, its amazing. The culture is something to brag about and don’t even get me started on the food. The activities available are unlike any other country I’ve been to but the one thing that really gets everyone’s attention is the internet. How wi-fi is everywhere, from Mcdonald’s to little cafe shops, I’m sure that it’s probably the same with a lot of other countries but I have not yet visited them, and London is crazily obsessed with it. So what are the perks of the internet????

YouTube has been everywhere here in london. There are billboards everywhere of the new popular youtuber, Zoellla. Now I have no hate against her since I have subscribed to her on YouTube and I am guilty to say that I do enjoy her videos. For those that do not know who Zoella is, she is a young woman who does makeup and hairstyle videos, she is probably the next beauty queen. But anyways, YouTube is everywhere and there are a lot of famous you tubers that make a lot of money and have a lot of fame, for example, Pewdiepie. Also i especially love the noise youtube makes when liking a comment!!

Facebook, everyone must know what Facebook is because it is one of the leading social media sites out there in my opinion. I do have Facebook and some of the things i see there is absolutely bizarre!! There have been many stories of videos or picture being posted becoming viral and the people who posted become more famous than actual celebrities. Well moving on from that, Facebook is an enormous impact on people, making them post absolutely anything to make themselves seem more popular. And don’t even count the perks of having strangers talking to you when you accidentally add them…

Now Instagram is something else, I actually love Istagram because i can share my passion for photography and Instagram has a lot of creative people who share their passions. But the thing that annoys me and I’m sure most people can agree with me is, following. Everyone that has Instagram are guilty to beg for followers at least once, i don’t care if you didn’t mean it, you still begged for followers!! Followers is the main base around Instagram and that is what makes it Instagram, so if you don’t have at least a thousand followers, you are a loser… Right? Wrong, Instagram is for your own personal fun!!

Twitter, well let me just tweet my thoughts on that, you will make a lot of mistakes. The whole point around twitter is to tweet your thoughts and well… maybe to some people thats not a very good idea.

I can go on and on about this, but i don’t want to bore you with this so what I’m saying is that the social network has its downsides but who doesn’t love sitting in the sofa and going through you notifications and feed. Enjoy the social network while it lasts because one day us humans will be taken over by robots….

Just lazy…..

So it has been a week since my last post, why? because I was just simply lazy. I just think that writing after a hard days work is just not relaxing, although I have a passion for writing, it’s just not for me on a monday afternoon.

I have downloaded the WordPress app on my phone and have checked out other blogs and have seen that every one of them have a point, they have an inspiration, and I have noticed that I don’t really know what I’m doing here. So that was a downside to my week but not all is bad. So this whole week I have been trying to find something to write about, and so far I’m writing about writing so this is fun….

I’m usually that person that always takes so long to do something but when I do it, I feel relieved that I do. So why don’t I just do it and get it over with, that I cannot answer because I have no idea why. So far this post has been on laziness and its boring, but I just don’t know what I’m doing yet and hopefully on my next post I will actually have a topic.

I guess my message of all of this is to not be lazy because at the end, you will be happy that you did it.

New experiences

Fear is something we all have and sometimes it can contradict our thoughts on what we wish, and dream of. I have always dreamt on being a writer, but the fear of failing and not having enough money and then coming to the point where I’m summing up my whole life and all i get is me becoming a 30-year-old woman with 20 cats and no money, that might be very stereotypical of me but that is just an example of what fear can do. Also just wondering, how am i going to feed my cats, let alone me with no money???

Getting fear out-of-the-way, you then experience. Experience is something that can’t be explained, its something that you can love, but also something that you wish you haven’t  even began to do in the first place. I know a lot about experience since I’ve been on both sides of the road, but i guess everyone has. Although experiences can go south, it’s always nice to have that memory that you can write in your journal or just keep it locked away in your mind. Experiences give you the encouragement that, YESS, you have been through that. It’s nice to have that, and that is what I’m trying to do.

I’ve been trying this new thing out where i never say no (unless it’s a man selling sweets), I know it sounds a lot like the plot line of the film, “Yes man” with Jim Carrey….but its exactly like that. I have never been that type of person that says yes on the first try, i always take convincing, and i wish that i was that type of person. So if you are that type of person that has fears and wants to experience the impossible, then just stop and think with me….If you were alone in this world and nothing were to stop you, what would you do???

Stop thinking that the cup will fall on the top shelf if you don’t grab it as quickly as you can because it won’t, it is safe up there with all the other cups. Theres nothing that can stop you from experiencing and making every second count, if your dream is to paint then grab a paintbrush, if you want to write then write a blog, you’re on an appropriate site to do so. If you want to ride horses then saddle up, if you are afraid of roller coasters, then be on the front seat. I know that it is easier said than done and i agree, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not possible.So don’t let your fears get you on your knees, begging for a different life, because this life is your own experience….
