More Thoughts..

•July 21, 2014 • Leave a Comment

Today I realised that life is it.

Because why not?

You get one chance. One. To stand out.. To make a difference.

I want to be remembered for my actions. How I helped others.. selflessly. How I served. I want to leave something behind.. My mark on the world.. On humanity.

Some people look at me and think what I’m asking is a big deal, but what people don’t realise is that small acts when multiplied by everyone in my world.. Then everyone in their worlds and so on can amount to millions of people being touched. Small acts can transform the world.

I am an optimist. An introvert by nature and extrovert.. Selectively. I am a giver, a helper and a volunteer. I do it because that is who I am. Acts of kindness.. Making people feel amazing by doing something for them is where I excel daily. I don’t do it for recognition or to be praised by my peers and leaders. I don’t do it to be noticed or to fit into a particular type of group, people or lifestyle.. I do it because I don’t think I know how to be any other way.

I want to be helpful. I want to be your friend. I want to say yes when you ask, and how can I assist you when you don’t. I want to impact people on such a scale that they want to do the same to someone.. anyone.. a friend.. family member.. stranger. I want to reach out to so many so in turn they can reach out to more.

I want to pour myself out.. Unreservedly.. Unapologetic and unashamed. I want to be me. I want to be me by helping you.

I’m not a girl who bases judgement or feeling on what someone says, or the gifts that I do or don’t receive. I am a girl who wants to invest herself in people and in life. In the future and in what I know makes a difference to so many.

Acts of kindness, no matter how big, or small, sometimes say a lot more than anything else.

Whether you are nice to me or not.. I always try to remain consistent in my dealings with others. I’m not perfect, so I can’t say that when people are mean to me that I 100% can take it on the chin, but I think I handle it better now than I have done. Like I said, I am not perfect and I can’t help it. This is just the way I am.

Watch this space.. I have plans.

Acts

of

Kindness.

Long overdue..

I got up this morning and decided that I had to work out. I did some exercise yesterday and kind of woke up sore.. But I have to endure. My job is to eat right to ensure that I gain the correct recovery food for my muscles so I gain muscle and lose fat. Anyway.. That’s boring. I must have been tired because when I was working out I hurt myself.. I mean I dropped 15kg plates on my ankle.
It hurt so bad. Fortunately, I don’t have a huge bruise.. But every once in a while I get a big twinge of pain and it tingles..

I should be more careful..

But I guess it’s overdue.. I haven’t had a clumsy moment in a while..

Night x

Death, Rainer Maria Rilke

For the families that have lost loved ones..

 

“Death,” Rainer Maria Rilke

Before us great Death stands
Our fate held close within his quiet hands.
When with proud joy we lift Life’s red wine
To drink deep of the mystic shining cup
And ecstasy through all our being leaps—
Death bows his head and weeps.

Flight MH17..

•July 17, 2014 • 6 Comments

I was saddened this evening to hear that Malaysian Airlines have had tragedy strike again.

A plane carrying 280 passengers and 15 crew was believed to have been shot down over Eastern Ukraine and all 295 people on board (I believe) lost their lives.

I know I don’t have to say this, but it was only four months ago that Flight MH370 went missing and no trace of the aircraft or the passengers have been found.

I just want to send my condolences to the families of all those loved ones who lost their lives. This is a horrible incident and I can only imagine what people are going through.

To read more on this I have included a link below:

Or you can Google:  ‘Flight MH17′

 

My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those affected.

I am guilty of doing it too.. I did it today, actively realised what I was doing and changed my thought..

It’s definitely a process..

Graduates!

When we were growing up my brother was sick.
Doctors told us that he had epilepsy, which we later found out was actually liquid in his brain. He was 7 years old.

Today.. At 22 he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences.. Hugging the Dean as he did so.
I watched as he walked proudly across that stage and accepted that certificate remembering the time that we were told “I’m afraid it doesn’t look too good.”
Some people look at him and say that he just defied the odds.. I look at him and say no.. That was God.

So today on your graduation big baby brother, I pray that this new season that you are starting is a great one and from here on in it only gets better!

I also want to congratulate my friend who also graduated last week and is now a certified Doctor of Medicine!
She is equally awesome!!

Good, better, best!
I am so proud of you both! The long library sessions, sleepless nights and studying when you didn’t want to have paid off.. Now.. We celebrate!
