Simon’s Takeover Part II – Explore Yourself

Hi Loves! Today is my “Friday” if you will…..the last working day before the holiday begins. That means tomorrow Lennon will be out scrambling around with the rest of the last minute shoppers grabbing whatever she can find to wrap or throw in a gift bag. I hate shopping this time of year but I’m lame and have been avoiding it for too long. It just doesn’t feel like Christmas to me this year for some odd reason. Can’t understand why really but it just seems like it crept in and whispered “Hey Bitch, you have four days to get your shit together, clock starts now, run bitch, run!!!!” Ok, now onto Simon’s Takeover. Last week he had a very unique story which got quite the attention. Today, he brings up some things that I really relate to. It’s way all too familiar. I think some of you will agree. Please check out Simon’s blog as he is exceptional. Not only is a fantastic writer but an incredible friend. Planet Simon

Explore Yourself:
The title of this sounds a bit dodgy. Like the kind of body search one might carry out when you think you’ve got a disease but what I have to say isn’t as weird but maybe more exciting.
Lennon and I have been friends for ages and we’ve started taking over each others blogs from time to time because we’re good like that.
What I thought this second post should be, is to reach down deep and explore all of us. If you know me….then you know I’m into space and exploration far away but perhaps the bigger adventure is much closer. Let’s see if this resonates:
Get up.
Get breakfast, coffee etc.
Go to work.
Get lunch.
Keep working.
Go home.
Sit on our ass and watch TV.
Go to bed.
With the occasional gems of getting laid and getting paid, a short holiday…. that’s more or less IT. Stop if I’m wrong.
Thing is, surely there’s more to life than this. Working for a corrupt system that takes from those that work.
How do you break the cycle?
Well the secret is….I dunno. I don’t. I wish I fucking did because I spend ages thinking about this and it’s a hard one. Trying to get that grip to get going and exist by and for yourself.
I need to explore my inner self and find out what makes me tick. What is it I need to do in the time I have left. Because it’s not paying bills and shit. I’m sure I’m not the only one, I’m sure others of you need to explore that bit of you that’s going to unlock life so that we learn to live life before we kick the bucket.
If anyone has any ideas… Let me know!

Sugar Coating Shit

I despise sugar coating anything…Unless it’s cookies or shit like that. You ask my opinion I’m going to be straight forward. There’s something genuine about people that are honest, blunt and just straight forward I think. I appreciate that. Whether it’s good or bad….I welcome the honesty.

You know when people say something like “Do you want the good news or the bad news first?” I always want the bad news first. Hit me up with it and let’s work out how to flip that to good news. Nothing is that bad is it? I choose to see the good in everything, at least I try my best to.

In most cases that bad news that someone tells me really isn’t that bad at all. They’re just a bit overly dramatic and are making it into something that really isn’t that big of a deal.

Seems as if some people choose to see the bad, the negative, the downside in things more so than the opportunity, challenge, or obstacle that it is. I love to find answers and fix things. At work they often call me “The Fixer” as I love to find answers and fix shit. I like to think outside of the box and make things happen. I love manipulating the system too as well to see what I find and to make things work.

So, you see, sugar coating is really meant for cookies & shit, not everyday scenarios. This is real life so don’t sprinkle sugar on top of my life or problems. I’m a grown ass adult, spit it out and let’s fix it!

Have a great weekend Loves….I’ve missed you!
