Some painted over advice ;)

I know most of you, I would think so, have heard these lyrics, at least once!
It's a lil funny, but oh so true!!
I think it would really pay to read over them, take the time to ask yourself:

 "Do I already do this, or do I need to start?"

Yes, these are lyrics!

Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of '97... wear sunscreen.
If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be IT.
The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience.
I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth. Never mind. You will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded. But trust me, in 20 years you'll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can't grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked.

You are NOT as fat as you imagine.

Don't worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.
Do one thing every day that scares you.
Don't be reckless with other people's hearts, don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.
Don't waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind. The race is long, and in the end, it's only with yourself.

Remember compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you succeed in doing this, tell me how.
Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.
Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life. The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don't.
Get plenty of calcium.

Be kind to your knees, you'll miss them when they're gone.

Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't, maybe you'll have children, maybe you won't, maybe you'll divorce at 40, maybe you'll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary. Whatever you do, don't congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself, either. 

Your choices are half chance, so are everybody else's. 

Enjoy your body, use it every way you can. Don't be afraid of it, or what other people think of it, it's the greatest instrument you'll ever own.

Dance. Even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.

Read the directions, even if you don't follow them.

Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

Get to know your parents, you never know when they'll be gone for good.

Be nice to your siblings; they are your best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go, but for the precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography in lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.
Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will philander, you too will get old, and when you do you'll fantasize that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.

Respect your elders.

Don't expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you'll have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one might run out.

Don't mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will look 85.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen. 

How true these lyrics are!!!

Love to you all people!

Inspirational 'Funk' !!

Hello lovely people!!

Ok so, I've never really knew what 'In a funk' meant until I watched the episode of Glee (Yes, I watch Glee, give me a break! I'm a performer remember!!)
I don't get why the American term describes being in a rut, when the term for music is so fun and boppy!

Anyway! moving on... I have been in a little bit of an 'inspirational funk' lately in regards to writing on this blog...

Not sure why, I have just lost what to write about, and  what you'll be interested in! lol

There's been less poems, mainly because I'm avoiding the drama around me!, haha, and also I'm rather content with life these days!

It's my birthday soon, urgh... I'm going to start denying my age when I go out, or just cleverly omit it from the conversation! I go to a place where the newby 18 year olds like to adventure, urgh.... don't judge, this town is small, and no where else to go!

Also, my friend is going to Europe, by herself, the day before my B'day :(
I am so upset, more that I was meant to go to her farewell, but family are coming down to see me... I hope I get to see her before she leaves, I'm going to miss her so much!

Aww, I am listening to the Romeo and Juliet Soundtrack for the first time, 'Kissing you' Des'ree
Oh, my heart aches when I listen to this song.... I love it so much!

I believe in love so much, a perfect love, that I'm scared I'll never experience anything quite like it....

Well, that's enough of me for now!!

Hope I haven't bored you too much ;)

Spontaneous adventure!

I went on a spontaneous adventure the other day with my friend who I have known for 20 years now!! which is like, 95% of my life!!

We went out to the haunted lighthouse that sits at the point of the bay we live in, and oh it was gorgeous!! Definitely going back!

There were signs like this everywhere and along the trail!... Feel secure much?!

This is the old light house, in ruins... Just about anyone that looked after the lighthouse, including their family died, a lot of the cases in my opinion was due to severe stupidity (such as pushing bolders off the cliff, and happen to lose your footing! der!!) 

This is the view of the lighthouse as you walk up the trail, I love the crunchy sound my feet make on the path :)

This is the view from the lighthouse, on the second cliff back is another lighthouse that I have photos of on here somewhere too I'm pretty sure... I love the ocean!

A bit of a drive down the road and we are right where the waves crash against the rocks, dangerous but soo cool!!

I love capturing things in mid action!

I almost stepped on this crab! I don't blame it for trying to attack me with its one claw!!

This was along the trail to get to the waves, soo calming :)

I have more photos that I've edited and posted on my photography website for sale, have a squiz, not to buy of course, I just really like the pics :)

I don't usually do the whole touristy site seeing thing, but so glad I did!!!

I didn't see his gaze...

I'm a nice girl.
I'm a strong woman.

I trust,
Maybe too much for my own good.

I will believe your words,
You can steal my kiss.

It's all nice,
Until he comes along.

It could've worked,
It could've been nice.

But you had to steal my kiss,
And let him see.

While staring into your gaze,
I didn't see his.

He stared from across the room,
But I couldn't see.

It's too late.

So to him I say,
I'm sorry you saw,

I'm sorry I didn't.

On a lighter note!

I had to get the previous post out of my system,
Now that that is done.... I wanted to share the latest pics that I have taken and edited!

Let me know what you think, I'm quite chuffed!! lol

Too deep...

I am sitting in the silence,
Surrounded by an electric humming.

The tap of my fingers on the keys
split the air.

Deep thoughts on life run through my mind,
Too deep for this late at night.

Too much,
For me to sort through them.

I look at the pictures I have taken on my wall,
I am happy.
I am content.

I am constantly being faced with lives being taken,
both fiction, and on the news.

What compels someone to cause the last breath
of another soul?

Too deep.

I look back to the sunsets I have captured and taped to my wall,
I try to detach,
Don't think.

It's late.

I'm sorry.

What are the causes of suffering?

What are the causes of suffering?

First, one understands that he causes much of his own suffering.

Secondly, he looks for the reasons of this in his own life,
To look is to have confidence in ones own ability to end the suffering.

Finally, a wish arises to find the path to peace.

For all beings desire happiness, all wish to find their purer selves.

=From the film "Kundun"-

I'm learning....

I'm learning to be:

The woman you'll never have to worry about.

The one to let go if you aren't holding on.

A believer in love again, but not just for anyone.

The rock that faces the waves,
crashing down on my beliefs.

Me again.

(Just f*cking around with friends! hehehe)

Funny thing about love...

The funny thing about love,

The more we experience it,
the more we guard ourselves from it.
Just in case.

The more we let ourselves be vulnerable,
the more our hearts race in fear and excitement.
The thrill of the risk.

Love, like a double edged sword,
Which end will cut you?

You'll never know for certain.

The more we learn of its power,
we also come to learn the pain of it breaking.
Who would want to go through that over and over again?

Our hearts, like scars,
becoming thicker, guarded by a wall.

Sooner or later,
the pain subsides and we remember the joy.
We miss that feeling,
And the risk is worth it again.

Take that leap of faith!
