Words and Pictures
A nice clean empty page. Just like every new day. It's full of possiblities. Some might leave the page empty. Some might tear it out and make a paper plane out it. Some might screw it up and throw it away. Some might fill it with drawings. Some with words of kindness. Some with words of unkindness. Some will just doodle and ramble amongst the pages. The beautiful thing is that there are endless possibilities. Not just once but every single new page brings these. So every single day there are new possibilities. It doesn't even really matter what has come before, or what will come after, each day there is a fresh clean page. A brand new start.
We spend so much of our time trying to fit in, trying not to offend some and trying hard to offend others all in the name of belonging. The silly thing is if we were just to be ourselves we would find the right people and the right people would find us and we would be able to do away with all the pretence and just be ourselves. Each one of us is unique but too many of us try to blur the edges so that we can fit in with the crowd. Or we are so untrue to ourselves incase someone should judge us. There'll always be someone judging you - there will always be someone happy to step up and be mean to you, so make sure you are kind to yourself. Embrace your individuality.
This one isn't strictly true for always, you can't just laugh all the time and not take anything seriously but I think it's obvious what point I am trying to make. We all get so wrapped up in the number of friends we have that we can over complicate our lives and actually end up pretty miserable but not wanting to admit it because we are all pretending to be this, that or the other. Remember to smile and laugh each and every day. Be true, be real, be free. Don't worry too much about yesterday, or tomorrow......the future will happen anyway, so there is no point really worrying about it as there is nothing you can do about it, it will happen whether you like it or not. Build your own life in a way that makes you happy, make your little piece of the earth the best you can and just hope that everyone else does the same.
