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.

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

Life Lessons....

What Life Is About…

I’ve been working at my new place for nearly a month and I start back in a few hours and dya know what? I’m already dreading it, ill be honest with you I’ve realised alot over the past couple of weeks and I’ve really reflected and discovered what’s important to me, so I’m gonna be bold and brutally honest and I hope you all can relate or benefit from hearing what life is about in my eyes.

Happiness
Do NOT sacrifice your happiness and what you love for MONEY, I don’t give a shit what excuses you may tell yourself but you cannot replace TIME, time as in with your partner, your loved ones, your family, your friends.

Stay in bed with your lover a little longer, cherish the small things in life, focus on a career that makes you fire up your belly with excitement, be with someone who creates fireworks in your eyes and heart, save your money work towards your goals and BE HAPPY.

Risks

Take a fucking risk!!!, it’s a massive risk me taking this job and I HATE working Monday to Friday, but I need the money and in a year or 2 guess what, I’m gunna take another risk and quit my job and go towards my goal and dreams.

Take risks in love!, be bold!! Go tell that girl or guy you like them, stop waiting for the right time because there’s NEVER a right time!, look ill never get Scarlett back and for us who have loved so truly and deeply and it’s been longer than a few months can’t just one day go “hey Scarlett guess what? Should have fought for you and I’m still in love with you etc”, I wish I had the answers, I wish I knew where this road has and will take me!

Quit that shitty job and go find something and someone who makes YOU happy! fuck everyone else, your friends and your family because only YOU know what’s right for YOUR life!

I want you all to do me a favour, I want you to write a list of 5 things you want to do this year that are BOLD decisions wether it’s a holiday or quitting your job, finding love/dating again, whatever it is go do it NOW

PASSION

FIND YOUR PASSION, what comes effortless to you? What do you TRULY love? What do you enjoy?, find something that makes you look forward to waking up, take a chance, believe in yourself and support those around you!

This year can be whatever you want it to be, make it a happy and abundant one…for YOUR sakes, you are the one who’s suffering, I’ve loved and I’ve lost, I’ve tortured myself for days months and years and I tell you the biggest pain is regret, don’t have regrets!

I know it seems easier said than done but the first step is always the hardest!

Be kind to someone today, give them your hand, give someone a hug or an ear who needs it!

We are all going through some shit that we know NOTHING about! So be a little kinder today.

It’s important and can make the world and even more beautiful place than it already can be.

I love you all and please reblog, like, tag whoever needs to read this!

I hate that people go through life with no sense of direction or no balls to make a change! It’s all upto you. You are great and powerful beyond your wildest dreams!!!!!

Dream big. Smile lots and take risks. Fall in love, feel every emotion.

I believe in you.

Love always,

GS x

The Cheat and The Cheated….

20140728-014015.jpg

Okay, MOST of us have been there, suspected our partners have been cheating, might be cheating, worried about if you’re good enough, if they like someone else and I was watching a film today called “the other woman” check it out!, it inspired me to write about the topic “Cheating” (the ex I mention is NOT SCARLETT!)

Asking “WHY DO MEN CHEAT?” is the same as asking why women do it?, I’ve been victim of 2 people who I had relationships cheating, one time I was told by multiple people and I just walked away and the other I caught red handed, now I’m going to write SIGNS OF POSSIBLE CHEATING these are my own views and I don’t want you people in relationships to be alarmed if you notice similarities etc its just what I saw found and discovered from MY relationships and experiences!

I’m lucky I have a pretty strong eye and sense of those who’ve cheated and do cheat because I’ve not only discovered it in my relationships but I’ve also discovered it for and from friends relationships etc! So here’s some of things to be aware and cautious of!

1. Taking their phone EVERYWHERE!

You ladies love playing FBI and checking you’re fellas phones even if its a quick peek to see what they’re doing BUT my ex used to snatch her phone everywhere even when she was taking a shower and I later discovered pictures of her that weren’t for me! And without slaying lets just say there were no clothes involved! More than one picture also.

2. Constantly complimenting other people

This one was to the point of where it feels like MIND GAMES, saying x y and z is cute and my ex (NOT SCARLETT) even told me how this guy kept “smacking her arse” and saying how much he’d miss her when she left school etc, sounds harmless but I discovered texts back and forth which basically were inviting some kind of activity that involves a bed if you smell what I’m cooking!

3. Randomly getting text and called LATE at night! Or only being “Friends” – I had this with a guy who said he wanted to “fuck” Scarlett, and they were only “Friends” as you say and I honestly felt like beating him up a few times but I tried to deal with them being friends, yet she stopped being friends with him for a while to suddenly become friends with him when we split up…..yeah sounds normal right?….

THIS PART IS IN RELATION TO THE TOPIC ABOVE “Being Friends”

If you question wether someone likes their friends or can be friends with the opposite sex, have 10 shots of whiskey and if you both or you don’t want to do anything with them kiss flirt or anything further etc then you are probably cool to be friends! (It’s an old formula but works!) VIDEO HERE (why men and women can’t be “Friends”)

The thing mentioned in the video above is something that happened with me and Scarlett she got drunk on a night out and kissed one of her guy “friends” she even told me “he kissed her”… Again no generalisation just an experience of what I’ve seen and had done to me

4. Any strange behaviour

Randomly being quiet, change in ways they kiss, hug, sexually, physically, all these can sometimes be signs of SOMETHING (not always cheating)

5. Empty/Cleared Messages

This is for the ladies or gents who have permission from their partners to check their phones, they always say if you’re deleting texts Etc that you don’t want your partner to see you’re already halfway to cheating!….

Look just be careful guys, cheating and being cheated on is horrendous, especially those who are in marriages, or long relationships, it hurts like hell so be cautious, relationships these days are hard with social networks being another way of secret contact and cheating (another one of my ex’s favourites) – I don’t want to freak some of you out but these are only 1 persons opinions and experiences…

Cheating can be anything, and there’s a saying “Cheating is anytime we would not want our partner seeing what we’re doing.” – I know SO many guys In a relationship and what they get up to OUTSIDE their relationship they would be immediately dumped for the way they look and talk about other girls, the places they visit(strip clubs etc) so it’s hard to distinguish a good lie or the actual truth sometimes… – cheating isn’t always sex!!!

If there’s any you’d like to share please reblog this post or comment/like it!

Also a quick topic I want to hear from you guys, when you’ve been cheated on and found out how do you react? Do you seek revenge or do you just leave cut your losses and recover?

I want to hear and share stories, lets put it all on the line here and discuss!

Have you been the cheater? What made you do it? Would you cheat again? What’s the worst lies you’ve made or heard?…..

Spread the love and be kind, your stories may help someone and I hope mine do too.

Your Friend Always,
