As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is AUTHENTICITY.
As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody as I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not
ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it RESPECT.
As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it MATURITY.
As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment, so I could be calm. Today I call it SELF-CONFIDENCE.
As I began to love myself I quit steeling my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it SIMPLICITY.
As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything the drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism.Today I know it is LOVE OF ONESELF.
As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is MODESTY.
As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worry about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where EVERYTHING is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it FULFILLMENT.
As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But As I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection WISDOM OF THE HEART.
We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born. Today I know THAT IS LIFE!
Wow, so Im finally here in the UK. Ive had an amazing time so far. My first few weeks were spent seeing my dads side of the family in The UK mostly down south so i was able see a fair bit of the English countryside :) Days following I headed up to Portsmouth where i met with my cousin. Here I was lucky enough to see a lot of the scenery down by the docks .. #amazing.. A few nights later I went out to a large hall and watched England play in the Euros during the group stages. A top night .. I met a lot of my cousins mates and was amongst a whole lot of mad england supporters. We had a few beers and then headed to this cheap pub and had cheap double shots of whiskey. Finally we settled down at a curry house and demolished some food before hitting the hay
The following day was just spent in petersfield with my grandfather & seeing the sites :).
Days following my cousin took me out for another wild night on the town , we watched a bit of football , met up with some of his mates. A good idea until mr tequilla was bought for me.. :S. Tiger Tiger was the next place we visited. a large 4 roomed club in the heart of portsmouth, it was full of underagers off there head, a fun night none the less.
After curing that hangover i soon jumped on a bus and headed into London and moved into some temp accomodation is Acton London.
A few days later I started work at this pub called ‘The Castle’. I have been working pretty much every day since i got there. Its been a great experience so far. Meeting all kinds of people, both the bar staff and all the regulars.
Being the typical aussie tourist ,i thought it would be a good idea to jump on a bus which took me around the streets of london where i managed to see all the sites of London I saw as a kid .. It was amazing . It brought back memories from when I was in London 11 years ago .. BigBen,London dungeons , london eye , The London tower, just to name a few . An enthralling day in London .. And one other thing
The tube is my best friend ily
Since then Ive just been working and trying to relax in this weather.. Although its kind of hard when the weather is constantly changing .. #somesummerenglandhas
Anyway must start work now …
Big love kids
