I want you to know
This is not a crossroads
I know which way I’m going to go
But for a moment in time
I let you enter my mind
And now you think you’re
Here to stay

There’s only one thing to do
To get through to you,
The you that’s messing with my mind

I need a song,
A song
Just to get out my mind
And all the things you told me
All the things you said

That mountain’s too high
Don’t reach for the sky,
It’s just not meant to be,
Dreams are just make believe

These words always play on repeat,
But I am learning to skip your beat
And find my own,
Show you how much I’ve grown

I want you to know
I followed my own road
To the mountain high,
So high it touches the sky

Poised and ready to climb
But paused for a moment in time
Because you entered my mind
And now you think you’re here to stay

There’s only one thing to do
To get through to you,
The you that’s messing with my mind

I need a song,
A song
Just to get you out my head
And all the things you told me
All the things you said

That mountain’s too high,
Don’t reach for the sky
It’s just not meant to be
Dreams are just make believe

These words used to play on repeat,
But I learned to skip your beat
And found my own,
I have grown.

I want you to know,
I climbed that mountain high,
One step at a time
Your voice slowly left my mind
The journey was mine
But you were right about one thing
I didn’t touch the sky,
I went beyond and touched the stars
It was meant to be
My dream is reality

I’ve learned to rather observe than seek

Sometimes sunshine and rain collaborate to create a rainbow
Each time they do it’s a fantastic sight
Colours vibrant,
Colours bright
I’ve tried to capture all the rainbows unique
But I’ve learned to rather observe than seek
Moments created to stay with me,
Long after they find new skies and flee

🌍 Stop for a moment, while the Earth spins 🌎

Stop for a moment, while the Earth spins.
Reflect on our presence,
And footprints that remain.

Will they fade or blow away in the breeze?
Or will they linger for many journeys around the sun?

Let’s stop for a moment, while the Earth spins.
Listen to the birds sing,
Close your eyes and really feel the breeze,
Watch as the clouds illustrate their story,
Absorb the offerings of the season.

It’s all connected and so are we.
It’s our ultimate commonality.
The base for all,
The place we call home.

Stop for a moment, while the Earth spins.
Reach out and offer your connection.
Answer the Earth’s wish
Join together on this day (and every day).
Take steps (big and small) to leave footprints that fade and blow away in the breeze.

Tell yourself you CAN


Tell yourself you can, you’ll believe it eventually.

Tell yourself you can’t, you’ll believe it instantly.

It takes time to believe in yourself

A daily check-in of mindset,

Regular meetings,

Charts and the like

A flitter of light amongst the shadows of doubt.

It takes time to believe in yourself,

A daily check-in of mindset

Until eventually…

No meeting required,

New habit acquired

Tell yourself you can, you’ll believe it eventually.

I have a little dream…

Sometimes it takes longer to start then it does to finish.

We all have dreams that nag us. And it’s easy wait. To procrastinate and wait for the perfect time or moment to start.

But if you start today, even if it’s just 5 minuets then the journey begins and you will be on the path, the path that has a finish line.

I have a little dream

I have a little dream

It whispers in the morning “Please make time for me,

Just a little moment,

While you have a cup of tea.”

I make my dream a promise “Let’s check in a two”

Then I go about my day,

Listing things to do.

It’s all so very busy

And soon enough it’s two.

My dream is right on time,

But I’m nowhere to be seen…

I have a little dream,

It shouts in the evening “Where were you?”

I say “I’m very sorry,

Tomorrow is anew.

Let’s arrange a meeting,

Just me and you

I’ll be there, let’s make before two.”

My dream says “Will you really?

You’ve promised for a while.

I’ll only wait so long,

Make some time,

Don’t let it pass you by.”

REMEMBER THE CATERPILLAR WHO HAD THE COURAGE TO FLY

REMEMBER THE CATERPILLAR WHO HAD THE COURAGE TO FLY

Remember the caterpillar,

The caterpillar who decided to grow,

To sacrifice

And become more.

Without knowing the end result

The caterpillar followed instinct,

Instinct to be patient, adapt and change.

And it did,

Because it believed it could.

The caterpillar metamorphosed

Into a butterfly,

And with it’s mesmerising wings

Had the courage to fly.

Happy growing x

Cherishing Life’s Chimes

Ten thousand stories I have to tell,

Some things I picked up around a wishing well.

I heard ten different stories a thousand times

Little tips on know-how and to cherish life’s chimes.

They said that’s life it’s the way it goes

Sometimes you get it right

Sometimes you don’t know

Just put on a smile

Go with the flow

Put one foot ahead

Find a way to go.

You know its love when your heart breaks

You can’t help sometimes from being late

Sift through the keepers and lose the fakes

Hold on to mementos from picnics by the lake.

They said that’s life it’s the way it goes

Sometimes you get it right

Sometimes you don’t know

Just put on a smile

Go with the flow

Put one foot ahead

Find a way to go.

Find a hobby that will keep you sane

Don’t watch lightning through the windowpane

Jump on a pile of leaves you’ve raked

Stop holding on to things that hate

Dance in the city in the pouring rain

Remember it’s okay to tear the pain.

They said that’s life it’s the way it goes

Sometimes you get it right

Sometimes you don’t know

Just put on a smile

Go with the flow

Put one foot ahead

Find a way to go.

Just do what you do

Go with the flow

Put on a smile

Find a way to go.

Daydream in full swing

Daydreams and reality

Are toying with me

The chores to tick

The lists to make

The bulbs to replace

All are calling loudly

Impossible to ignore

Yet easy to resist

For a dreamer of the day

Drifting to and fro

Before you know

My daydream is here

In full swing

Worlds of forever

Tales locked in chests

Wonderment, eccentricity

All things whimsical

Are dreaming with me

They listen for a while

Without agenda or trepidation

They calm the waters

They inspire

They get carried away

They wonder

A while comes to a close for the day

For reality is reality

And the bulbs won’t change themselves

To and fro slows to a stop

It’s daydream’s time for zzz
