Change can come in many forms in our lives. It might come forcefully like a tidal wave, or creep along incrementally like a glacier.
It might come in the form of devastating tragedy, difficult choices, broken relationships, or even new opportunities.
But even though change is often difficult, many times it’s also for the best. Accomplishing anything great in life requires significant change that pushes us beyond our comfort zones.
Break your chains.. ⚡ and by that, I mean the chains you place around yourself. The chains that tell you you'll never make it, you can't do it, you'll never be anything. You gotta break them. Free your mind and heart and know that anything you can dream or imagine is possible. Take the step. Have faith. Walk in the Grace God bestowed onto you. Take a step. 😘

Like one who has seen a vision in a dream,
and, after dreaming, finds only
an imprinted passion remains:
Such am I. Through my vision be all but ceased
the sweetness born of it
perfects itself still in my heart.

Wind energy... it's an unbridled force of mother nature.
So why are some corporations still so eager for us to keep harvesting fossil fuels and refusing to see the benefits & fruits of a cleaner energy future???
Raping the land of it's natural resources is complete madness.. natural resources have a limit.
In turn fossil fuels have a very high risk of polluting the surrounding natural environment while there are frequent risk of oil spills which pollute the #Water table. Either Fresh Water or Our Oceans, both are at risk which in turn Poisons Marine Life and makes Fresh Water Supplies TOXIC.
Not only that, also when Burned releases Carbon and Noxious Gases into our Atmosphere.
So.. why even consider harvesting dirty energy like this when Nature itself is Bountiful..
Wind and Solar are plentiful and are also sustainable. Ever Present and Ever Regenerative.
As a collective WE need to change our living. It has to be a part of the future for generations who are to follow.

Thought I'd check in this Monday night, out of hours! Probably the whole world is sleeping.. most of the UK by now anyway! In my free time I've been playing with editing styles, so not just creating realism style photography images, I've also been playing around with style & B&W/colour so branching off more into the world of creative digital art.
There's something quite freeing about having absolutely no limitations.. rules.. standards or anything like that. Just pure creativity and coming from a place of pure experimentation.
Anyway.. I'm having fun exploring this side of my work. If nothing else it breaks the norm and gives me a new slant on my work. Who makes the rules anyway right!! Exactly!
Carpe diem! I'm doin it.. my way! ;)
Today more than ever I've been thinking deeply about the effect that comes from the people you surround yourself with. I mean the friends you choose, or new friends you make. Vibes are very real.. so real that science can measure them! Take the IKEA advert for eg. This advert did an amazing job at getting an anti bullying message across while also educating the viewer. If you haven't seen it, I'll attach a link below you seriously have to see it!!! It's Powerful.
The point is, we hear this every day.. this isn't new news. But how much do we take in? Do we listen and actually recognise this? Maybe I'm more sensitive right now, but recently I'm seeing who's truly there for me, who's genuine, loving, magnanimous.. generous hearted and genuinely wants to see me on top, and I see the the odd snipe, backhanded compliment.. outright insult and also.. yes! Put down. Sometimes the put downs come from your innermost circle and if that's the case what do you do?
Good question. I remember something Brene Brown once said.. she said, ask yourself.. the person giving criticism does their opinion matter in the great scheme?? I mean, she said you should have a list, that list should be small. A list with names of the people who are genuinely constructive, and any other respected people who are actually in the arena, they are going out there and doing what you're doing, getting bruised, bloody and doing the work. Those are the people you can trust. Protect yourself. Surround yourself with people who want to build you up, as you build them. Positive energy, good vibes, love, encouragement, support and LIGHT.
I find that connecting with people who are on the same wavelength is key. People will be drawn in and out your life. For the people who leave, let them leave. Let the chips fall. The friendships that are meant to be, they will stand the test of time. Now, I send you love friend! Surround yourself with people who nurture and feed your soul, as you do them. Life is a journey. Vibes matter! Happiness matters! Love matters!
Carpe Diem Yx :) xoxo
According to mother nature…Green is a primary color. 🌱💚
🌲 “Planting trees is an effective way to offset your carbon emissions and improve the natural environment for the benefit of climate, wildlife and people.
Since trees have a vital role in the balancing of CO2 and oxygen levels, widespread deforestation across the world has also had a negative impact by releasing more CO2 into the atmosphere.
The rise in global temperature is causing more extreme weather events, rising sea levels, warmer oceans and threats to animals and plants that are unable to adapt to the rapid changes. If carbon emissions continue unchecked, the impacts of climate change will be potentially catastrophic to people and wildlife.” Info Taken from; https://treesforlife.org.uk/plant-trees/becoming-carbon-conscious/

A star us born actually tackles one of the biggest issues.. and stigmas.
After a heavy night last night, falling asleep in my clothes & potentially loosing all control last night. I can tell you that personally this is something I've struggled with for years. At one point I tried to stop drinking, and i succeeded in cutting right down.
More recently, with added pressures I feel myself being pulled back into this zone.
The zone of not knowing when to stop drinking and in fact.. drinking more and more. In a way maybe subliminally I'm using alcohol to numb down pain. The pain I'm even maybe not aware of consciously.. because I can tell you hand on my heart! I'm happy. I'm the happiest I've been in my life. I feel more focused, driven. Yes I have moments but don't we all. The point is.. I sing.. I dance. & I'm happy savouring life right now.
The undeniable fact is though.. I'm going through a divorce, this has been a long process. Where by my relationship unfortunately deteriorated. It broke down Christmas of 2017. We all have hardships. From divorce, to mental health. From illnesses like Cancer to having limbs amputated.
We have homeless people on the streets and the refugee crisis. Everyone in some way has a cross to bear.
A cross which can haunt you. Maybe suffering from fertility problems or you just keep getting knocked down. It feels like there's always something. Something to rear it's ugly head and say... wait a min. I'm not done with you yet!
If anyone struggles with lifes pressures and finds themselves reaching for the bottle, I hear you!
I'm working on this side of myself by pursuing other interests, absorbing myself in education and also self development.
Just like when I quit smoking years ago, drinking has become a nasty habit. It can destroy your health and it can destroy your life.
So I'm taking control. For 2019. 2019 is to be the year I make massive change. Yx
In this fight together.
