    Life Isn't About Finding Yourself, Its About Creating Yourself

    This is by far my favorite quote in the entire world and I feel like I can change who I am to my liking. I add layers to myself and I tear things down. All the experiences that I have had in my life so far have led me to the building blocks of really creating myself. I think that...

    I have been hiding. It all got a bit much.

    A week of practicality. A realisation that I couldn't let my divorce drift, I was going to have to face it. My dear sweet I love them parents coming to see me. Coming into my space and my sanctuary, forcing me to shove stuff in cupboards and throw a hoover round and hide the...

    Randomly Making Way

    I've decided to post my first-ever experience project writing on this group. I find it a perfect way to begin my journey here on this place as I am creating myself. I always thought of myself as the eternal student. I want to know everything about everything. To create a -Demi...

    Bound And Determined

    I work for an employer that I strongly believe is in the first stages of alzheimers. He forgets things he has done and said. He is not a good boss (kind of wimpy). He has put a lot of pressure on me to carry out my duties as manager, but he keeps my hands tied where I can't...

    I Was Created Years Ago

    I am not creating me, I was created at some point. When? Well my physical me was created at birth. The rest is all unknown, was the "real me" the non physical me created before birth?

    "Creating Me"

    That's actually a pretty interesting concept, one which I never really thought about before. I've always stood by that we're not "fixed", that our experiences and memories and relationships, everything in life, work to shape us. More recently I've subscribed to the notion of...

    And Not Done Yet.

    I am a work in progress, and it may take a while so be patient. We all have lived through 2 year road construction projects, so my construction project shouldn't be so bad. The biggest problem is I lost my owners manual so I am making so much of it along the way.

    Pen To Paper - It's A Discovery!

    Norbert Platt taught that "The act of putting pen to paper encourages pause for thought, this in turn makes us think more deeply about life, which helps us regain our equilibrium." I think he was right about this in that every time my keys hit my keyboard to make a post in one...

    Live It Yourself

    It doesn't matter what happened to me yesterday. It doesn't matter how I behaved, it was the best I could considering my level of progress. So today I will try again, and move inch by inch towards being the person I would like to become. I always analyse my thoughts on a minute...

    Life Is An Opportunity........................

    Opportunity, not obligation, is the cornerstone of religion, the basis of all spirituality. So long as you see it the other way around, you will have missed the point...............................

    It's Ok.. I'm Recreating Me :)

    What do I mean with "Redefining myself"? Well, with a birthday less than a few months away, and so much that I have accomplished in the past, I guess I kinda feel like starting over, even though not much is changing... Anyway, what comes from now on, maybe, is a more focused...
