So recently i have just come back from holiday in Spain and as holidays do they help you reflect on everything and its made me realise that as a 25 year old single male who’s working a normal Monday – Friday 08:30/5:00pm job that there is so much of my life that i am frustrated about.

I’m frustrated because i feel stuck in a job that i HATE to pay rent for a house thats not mine, to not really have many true friends, no girlfriend, stuck in a small town with small town mentality and i know that myself and others around me are BIGGER and BETTER than this, and this got me thinking about everything and even you fellow bloggers out there…..

Am i normal for feeling like this and thinking like this? is it bad that i want MORE from life that i am getting? because IF i could (not saying i would) but if i could i would pack my stuff and head for the city/London and just pursuit my dreams of doing music and being in the music industry…Now some of you will say “Well why don’t you just do it?” and thats a great question but I’m always told that we need to make sure we are set here first and i agree but i feel like I’m going to burst sometimes and do something irrational (like i keep dreaming about walking out of my job and giving them a swift and polite F YOU out of the door).

So as i write this, i would love to hear your advice and if any of you have made the big jump and moved somewhere different or far away? or what your thoughts on it are? and if you are reading this feeling the same i ENCOURAGE you to be confident and brave, to not accept leading a normal life and be GREAT, be BOLD and DIFFERENT!, YOU MUST NOT ACCEPT A JOB PURELY FOR THE MONEY YOU MUST LIKE THE JOB!!!!!, You MUST be around people who want you to win and do well!, You must really tune into your surroundings and ask yourself uncomfortable questions sometimes.., See  i want to leave a positive mark on the world and be positive, bring happiness to others and really make a difference and live COMFORTABLY, i want to build something i am proud of and pass on what I’ve learnt and all the mistakes I’ve made that i wish my parents and loved ones would have told me to be careful of etc, But i want you to feel inspired and encouraged by this….i want you to really look deep inside yourself and find your purpose and passion.

Find something you love and that you’re passionate about, find a way to make it into a CAREER for you, take photos, write poems and music, film that video or youtube channel you’ve always wanted, start a fashion line, write a blog, build a business, join that dance class, do that marathon, don’t discourage ANYONE, Be the reason someone wakes up and smiles on a morning, give someone a hug who needs one, tell someone their great, create the life YOU want to live, be the best at whatever it is you love to do. I believe in you and i know we all have greatness within us and i don’t want ANYONE older, younger or the same age to feel the way i feel because its shit and we ALL deserve GREATNESS.

I’m sure I’ve missed so many more things out aswell but i feel that most men don’t appreciate or show appreciation for the little things that makes you YOU, and you may have been burnt or hurt in the past or scared to love again but never give up, just because you had 1 bad experience (or a few sometimes), i do believe there is someone out there for everyone but you have to keep being yourself, stay classy, keep your standards high and there will be guys who will be willing to walk 1000 miles for you.

Purpose…

Well my weekend is over, back to work tomorrow…wishing and hoping for things to change, for work to actually improve and for things to get better and have that feeling of moving forward but sometimes i need to take a step back and really look at things.

I can’t go into details but i can honestly say I’ve seen and I’ve been through some shit, some dark dark places and times in my life but looking back from where i am today, in this very moment I’ve moved forward. Ive had ZERO confidence/self esteem, I’ve had NO money I’ve dealt with a lot of difficult personal demons where at times I’ve punished myself for things that have happened to me or around me.

The beauty of life is the comeback, and the realisation of a purpose. A purpose of knowing where you’re going, what you dream and desire, of you what you truly want in life wether its money a new job your favourite music album or a family with children etc, we all have a dream and we all have shit days and have amazing days and its how you deal with all of it. Take time to truly appreciate all the obstacles you go through and also take a moment not to be so harsh on yourself…Don’t be thinking NEW YEAR NEW ME, start today! take control of your surroundings and be sure to invest time and money into YOURSELF.

If you want to do something GO DO IT!, who cares what other people think?, be unique and stand out from the crowd.

I may be rambling on but I’m just getting off my chest what I’m thinking and if it helps someone or you can resonate with it the please reblog it or comment! i love knowing what you all think and what you experience. Its comforting to know theres good people out there and that we all understand from every and any point of view.

FIND YOUR PURPOSE.

Your Friend Always,

In Love By Now….

I’m supposed to be in love by now, by now
It’s been so long for me, I don’t know how, by now
Been drowning in the sea of broken vows, by now
But I’m supposed to be in love by now, by nowI’ve been chasing my dream, I’ve been chasing you
Running hard but my legs feel weak
I done played every part, I done played a fool
Write the movie, I’ll be your lead

Cause I’m supposed to be in love by now, by now
Well girl you stole my heart now take a bow, by now
In love by now
Well I’m supposed to walk you down the aisle, by now
Change your name and make your parents smile, by now
Leave the Church, make plans to celebrate, by now
A big old house and babies on the way, by now

I’ve been chasing my dream, I’ve been chasing you
Running hard but my legs feel weak
I done played every part, I done played a fool
Write the movie, I’ll be your lead

Well I’m supposed to be in love today, by now
Go through my phone and throw ’em all away, by now
In love by now
Without your love, I want what they say when they write my stories
Without your touch, I’ll never know how it feels to fly
Drown in my emotions, now it’s all on me
Eyes are finally open to love I couldn’t see
Can’t wait ’til I can say bless the day you landed in my arms

I’m supposed to be in love by now
I’m supposed to be in love by now
In love by now….

The Proposal…

Lyrics:

If we can’t be happy, can we at least, pretend?
Even if you cannot love me, can you at least just tell me it?
Ain’t that what they all do anyway?, yeah, they kiss each other on the face
They call each other bae, when deep down inside all they feel is pain

So we might as well get married cause ya so sick of me already
You want me to leave already, so hard to believe already, already, already
We might as well get married cause we’re arguing already
You hate my guts already, fell outta love already, already, might as well get married, turn the lights on

Lets smile at each other, so we can please our friends
Cause we both know just how much you care bout impressing them
Cause ain’t that what couples do anyway?, they lie right in each others face
And they call each other bae, when deep down inside all they feel is pain

So we might as well get married cause ya so sick of me already
You want me to leave already, so hard to believe already, already, already
We might as well get married cause we’re arguing already
You hate my guts already, fell outta love already, already, might as well get married, turn the lights on

I buy you a house so you can kick me out
Take my ass to court and tell the judge what I’m ’bout
Don’t forget to tell the kids that they Daddy ain’t shit
Look at how he did ya Momma out there with that outta bitch

Cause we’re arguing already
Fell outta love already, already, might as well get married

I’ll Show You…

Lyrics:
My life is a movie
And everyone’s watching
So let’s get to the good part
And passed all the non-sense

Sometimes it’s hard to do the right thing
When the pressures is coming down like lightening
It’s like they want me to be perfect
When they don’t even know that I’m hurting
Cause life’s not easy
I’m not made out of steel
Don’t forget that I’m human, don’t forget that I’m real
Act like you know me, but you never will
There’s one thing I know for sure

I’ll show you
I’ll show you
I’ll show you

I’ve got to learn things
Learn them the hard way
Got to see what it feels like
No matter what they say

Sometimes it’s hard to do the right thing
When the pressures is coming down like lightening
It’s like they want me to be perfect
When they don’t even know that I’m hurting
Cause life’s not easy
I’m not made out of steel
Don’t forget that I’m human, don’t forget that I’m real
Act like you know me, but you never will
There’s one thing I know for sure

I’ll show you
I’ll show you
I’ll show you

Cause life’s not easy
I’m not made out of steel
Don’t forget that I’m human, don’t forget that I’m real
Act like you know me, but you never will
There’s one thing I know for sure
I’ll show you

I’ll show you ……

What my crappy jobs taught me…

20150119-220443.jpg

There comes a time in your life where you have to do something you don’t want to do, it can be and come in many ways and forms and mine is certainly my job. Answering the phone making calls taking payments receiving very unpleasant comments about my service when I’m just doing my job is daunting, frustrating, tiring and depressing. I’ve even thought about quitting and I’ve been here since the start or December.

I thought it was going to be an adventure I thought the job would have had training, support from colleagues, a room for development and growth and all it’s been is a push into the deep end and guess what?!? I CAN’T SWIM…. Or at least I thought I couldn’t….

We have all had shit jobs, we’ve had shit uniforms and low pay and low wages (this i still have) but there are actual things you can learn from rubbish jobs! And here’s mine…..

1. Retail – Being nice to people you HATE

Serving ungrateful and ignorant customers or seeing people you don’t like when you’re in a rubbish uniform and you’re exposed walking around on a shop floor teaches you a couple of things. That this job isn’t FOREVER, it’s a stepping stone and a test in the water for your next job. Just have faith and patience and save a little bit of money every wage, enjoy the people you work with and be greatful that people are desperately looking for a job. Working in retail taught me that unpredictability is actually a good thing, doing crazy shifts like 6-12 12-10 8-5 different days and doing overtime is actually a good thing because the shifts pass quicker I believe. I learnt that managers are horrible to you because they’re power hungry and that if you ever work your way to the top of the ladder sometimes you gotta give your colleagues a break. Some are going through hell and back out of work so stop worrying for 1 second if the shelf is empty or tidy and concentrate on building better rapport and morale In your workplace.

2. Office Job

Working 8:30-5PM is not fun, its actually horrible, i sit there and i just think minute by minute my youth is disappearing and i regret the freedom and the time i had from my shitty retail job gave me i should have been more productive and its no excuse but having depression and not wanting to even move let alone do anything productive didn’t help. This job has given me more money, to buy a mac, to pay for singing lessons, to save up and I’ve learnt to be more organised and more switched on day by day. I realised i became a bit of a zombie in my retail job, this job i do now is quite hard and frustrating and one thing that you could easily forget to mess up an engineers day. My boss treats me and everyone with respect, the atmosphere is relaxed, theres room for mistakes and growth, i dress well, my phone manner and everything has improved. I can understand why people stay in these kind of jobs but at the same time i just don’t get it, i am all for working but i believe in finding a passion, waking up everyday and not feeling like work, the big slump out of bed to turn alarm off and desperately grabbing an extra few mins because you had a late night worrying about your job and who needs calling first thing or what your boss will say. DO SOMETHING YOU LOVE. Im literally doing this job to save up and travel and put towards my music, a year of this struggle might help me have a few years of LIFE of adventure and happiness.

Don’t settle. Dream big. Love and Laugh.
Your Friend,
