// life and love through our screens... make of it what you will. #internetrelationships
.
If I can only kiss you on the breeze
And only love you in my dreams
If I can only hold you in my heart
And only see you through my screen
If I can only touch you with my words
And only feel you with my mind
I guess that will have to be enough
Until the day that you are mine

// do you ever feel like throwing caution to the wind and allowing your inner urge to take over and just for once do something personally impermissible.

// How can we know what makes us happy when we we can only understand life on reflection? We know what pleases us in the moment (i.e. the short term and immediate pleasures) but will the activities we enjoy in the moment, bring us lasting fulfilment? Is our society becoming addicted to temporary and immediate pleasures at the expense of our long term happiness. Taking the time to learn a skill and putting off temporary satisfaction to work towards a lifelong goal is often more challenging but can result in lasting happiness. By the time we look in the mirror to determine what makes, or will make us happy, it may very well be too late!

I am happy
in the moment, 
a moment 
which will pass.
I am happy

// With the degradation of our environment comes new challenges to examine our own lifestyle choices. No longer is social responsibility the sole domain of businesses, but it is also on the part of the consumer to make informed choices that are not just economic but morally right. We can leave behind the period of self destruction and make a new start if we awaken to the wonders of the universe, which we too often take for granted.

// you’ve heard it before, but life really is short! When we start to realise just how little time we have, then we start to choose to never leave important words unsaid. If you need to say something to someone, then say it now, as  the opportunity to do so may pass. It’s easy to remain silent and take no risks, but how w authentic a life will you be living? I’ve not met anyone who isn’t afraid of rejection, as it requires great strength to put yourself out there, and face all the emotions that rejection can evoke. But the more we accumulate rejections the better we become at dealing with them, and the better we become at not taking them so personally. The next time you ask for a favour, a date, a promotion, a job, you may very well receive a completely different response. So persevere, as the risks are usually worth the temporary chips at our ego.

// I always like to answer with a ‘we’ll see’ or ‘maybe’ with my children. I love the idea of the infinite possibilities with these answers. Who wants to live in the ‘definitive’ when we are so young. I want them to always strive for the impossible so they might perhaps reach the possible. Why not keep the magic alive with the idea that anything could happen, and that if they dream hard enough then will possibly come true. #haiku
