May your soul glitter.

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Have you ever wanted to just escape?

To be somewhere where nobody knows you?

No expectations.

No preformed opinions of who you are or who you should be.

To become anyone you desire.

To be

To be free

From the moment you are born you are someones child and their expectations their opinions are influencing who you are and who you are to become.

From the foods we are fed to music we hear.

EXPECTATIONS

Society breeds conformity, it rebels away from people who don’t tie the party line.

Labelling, grouping, controlling.

Why do we as the human race try to create groups, clones ?

Why do we not celebrate individualism and self expression?

Why are there right ways or wrong ways

Sometimes the journey is more important that the destination.

Sometimes the searching is more important than the finding

Getting lost should be the celebration of a new direction.

Life is for living,

May you wander freely

May your soul glitter with your freedom to be you

Be the you,you wish to be.

We are proud !

 

Like everyone over the last week I have been glued to my television watching the Olympics.

 

Finding myself caught up in the emotions and desires.

 

Celebrating the achievements with tears of joy and crying with sadness at the loss of dreams.

 

Yet one thing that has really got to me is the sadness of the British Olympians who haven’t got gold. They seem to think silver and bronze are fails, not good enough.

 

My heart aches and I’m finding myself screaming at the television “we love you”.

 

Everyone of the athletes that have participated in these games should be holding their heads high. Just to qualify for the Olympics means you are amazing, you are awesome.

 

The time, the dedication you have given to your chosen sport makes you a winner in my eyes.

 

For those holding their gold medals in their arms we as a country are so proud of you.

 

For those with silver and bronze you are winners too.

 

And for those who are leaving empty chested just remember we as a country admire and respect you.

 

You ALL did us proud.
