This may be a hard pill to swallow

This is awesome

This may be a hard pill to swallow…
but everything you are or aren’t is up to you! You have the capacity to be any way you choose, change what you want to change, live how you want to live… Question is… what are you going to do with this knowledge?
Yikes! Today the happily ignorant film comes off your eyes and you can finally see.
See the truth that along, it has been you.
You that has the power.
You that can choose how you want to live.
Now I know, you may be shaking your head going no way. I didn’t choose half the stuff that has happened to me.
It’s not about choosing what’s happened to you – it’s about choosing how you are going to let it affect you. How you are going to allow that to change you.

Do you really think if you don’t love yourself, no one else will love you?

I’m sharing this because this happened to me. There are many women out there who will read this and say “me too!” It’s important for all of us to stand together, support one another and share our story

Vrunda Chauk

I have heard this a lot! ‘If you don’t love yourself, no one else will’.


I was with a narcissist. And that was the time when my self esteem was so low that even if he treated me like shit, I thought I deserved it and didn’t oppose much.

Then came a time when I didn’t love myself at all. I had no confidence, I felt like it’s always my fault – I mess up with everything, I could never be as amazing and as attractive as others are, I would never be successful, I can’t do anything.

I was critising myself every single time. I didn’t like myself the way I was. I could note down at least 100 things I wanted to change in me.

That was tough.

And stressful.

I didn’t love myself.

And now when I look back, I noticed a few things –

I have been suffocating but I continue to move forward. I love this.

Windmills of My Mind

Diana you have intrigued me:
Darkness was all around me as I stepped forward into an unknown path.

My shadow followed my footsteps with the moon on my back and the irie feeling that I was not alone in this abandoned city.

The moon was my companion and it’s glow my salvation.

My imagination was working fast into a chaotic exchange with dark toughts of being followed.

Why was I dropped here?

Who did this to me?

All I remember is the light into the portal and a hand pushing me through.

My heart is beating at a rate of suffocation, yet, I continue forward to wherever I am directed and know that the spirit in me will keep me safe into the unknown…

Too Young to Die (2 of 3)

I’m sharing this blog because if your not following Charlie I suggest you do. He has a great life and is a great blogger. Follow him if you’re not already!!!

The Spanish called us ‘Pesca Submarina’ – underwater fishermen. The name carried respect and we were proud of the kudos. We were treated well and so considered ourselves honoured and tried to live honourably when in their company. But after ten minutes in a raging sea, fear dispelled pride. I recalled his final words as we entered from the harbour wall. ‘Stay with me!’ The fuckity, fuck I felt earlier was nothing compared to what I felt now. I finned a metre out of the water and realised he was no where to be seen so I began to fish. Over weighted by the lead we sank quickly, solitary dark shapes gliding down through the gloom. On the sea bed you lay still, waiting for the curiosity of the fish to take over and hoping your lungs would last out the time. That was on a calm day…

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Opening Doors

Time to open up my own doors

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow

It is so important to create open doors for yourself.  Earlier in my career, I was under the impression that you needed to wait for a “door to be opened” for you when thinking about options or advancement.

This is not the case.

There is no reason why you cannot create doors to be opened.  Why Not!!  Create as many doors as possible; when you are ready, open them up!

There are enough people out there that would like to think they can control your advancement in life; not just in your career, but the reality of it is that you have all the control.  See what you are passionate about, where you would like to see yourself in years to come, or simply see what you would like to do today.  Those “things” you are thinking about are “doors!”  Those are your doors and yours only!  When you feel…

I am what I am and that is completely glorious!

Yup! I am who I am and that’s perfectly ok

Aria-Bella Rises


I am what I am and that is completely glorious!

Shout it out loud. Sing it and do a little shuffle. Repeat it till you feel it. I am what I am and that is completely glorious!!! I am what I am and that is completely glorious!!!!

Time to shout it from the rooftops! Time to truly believe it with every fiber of your being! If you don’t believe you are glorious… how do you expect anyone else to treat you for the glorious radness that you are?

Sure they may have their moments, but the feelings you have for yourself are going to sink into them too. Do you really want that??

Today is the the day to say no freaking more to this. If you hate being treated a certain way – it’s time for the better treatment to begin with you! You treating you right!!! If you…

Judgment or Criticism


Windmills of My Mind

The three wise monkeys: See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil.

When do opinions, words spoken without thoughts become judgement or criticism? Maybe downright evil?

Let me tell you a story, sometime ago all I needed was brightness surrounding me, I thought if I basque in light then all my darkness will be gone.

My family believes that dark colors perserve things, kitchen cabinets have to be dark mahagony, tables black marbles, couches of black leather and carpets of indistict dark browns or steel greys…. you get the picture my dear reader?

I decided to re-do my abode in white, white bookshelfs, white tables, white desk and white carpeting or rather off white with little pigmintation, my curtains were white sheer and framing it I bought a beautiful green material of green that reminded me of the forest in the springtime and I made my curtains, with an…
