  1. Not much to say

    Sunday was relaxed around here. Beautiful sunny day Don't really have nothing to say... Inspiration ‘When you start to change and when you accept and love yourself, then you will change the world. That's spirituality. Try it in your daily life. Don’t lose hope. Ask for help and the Divine will provide for you. When you make yourself ready, Divine Mother will carry you and will look after you. She will shower you with Her Love so that you may see how easy it is.’ — Paramahamsa Vishwananda
  2. Claustrophobia?

    You don't get much chance to be claustrophobic in India, everywhere you go it is crowded with people: was visiting some Temples yesterday, some are big some are small but always crowded and because of the multitude of people there, you can not really choose where you want to go, there is usually only one way in and one way Out, you get in the line and follow the one in front of you, you walk when they walk and you stop when they stop...if you think you can stay in the Temple meditating or...
  3. Incredible india

    India truly is incredible in many ways. Not Autism friendly though...lots of people everywhere all the time, lots of caotic traffic always noisy playing their horn, lights and colour everywhere, spicy food, lots of smells...strange beautiful languages, difficult English accents... But there is something about it that just puts a smile in my face every time. This visit to India is for spiritual reasons, I am interested in the Temples and in the Religious history of this country, it's...
  4. Adventure time

    I love to travel. I force myself to do things I know will be hard, but I go through them the best I can and everytime it is worth it. Can't imagine going through life living in fear and limitation, that is not why God put us here. Yesterday evening I was kaput but I took some time out of the crowd, breathed and reminded myself why I do these things: to live and experience life the way God made me. I am trying not to compare myself to others and instead of doing what they do I am learning to...
  5. Day to day part 2

    I wrote a post before this explaining the struggle of me being stuck in my day to day and i think a lot of it sort of desperation for interaction these days, I speak to someone maybe 5 mins a day and the rest of the time i'm sat alone trying to think of ways to meet people online, I've hopped into some public discord servers and stuff with tags 'friendly and non toxic' however upon entering most of them had some really toxic people anyway so i ended up leaving, I find the same issue a lot on...
  6. Day to day stuck

    I'll write a quick summary, After many years of trying to be an outgoing person i ended up sort of giving up and becoming a complete shut in, And have been most of my life now, I leave the house maybe once a month. In doing so i managed to avoid a lot of depression i was getting by trying to force something that was destroying me at the time and i've been sort of 'content' with life up until a year or so now, I'm 28 and i have absolutely zero going for me, I can't work, I can't meet anyone...
  7. Today's Blog

    So I sent off my Niece's birthday gift to London, England yesterday, she's 8 next week, bought a small toy from Argos, worth a tenner, and because of the long box, they wouldn't send it Royal Mail so I had to use Parcel Force signed for service, which would be a pain in the ass for my Brother and my Sister in law in London who are both never in because they work full time and take the kids to school and places. The postage cost me £10.30, about 40p more than the item was worth., don't get...
  8. Any road will do....

    I have a mantra: "Any progress is better than no progress." Another one is: "If you don't try it, there's a 0 chance of success. If you do try it, there's a 50% chance of success." Bravery isn't doing things without fear. Bravery is stepping forward despite your fear. "Let go and let God" is another one I like, that I picked up from AA (no, I am not a recovering addict, but I still find much of their material useful) "Fake it until you make it" (another AA mantra) "Never give up; never...
  9. Day Ten 9/01/19 Arrowtown to Wanaka

    I can’t even remember anything……I need way more sleep than I am getting or maybe just to be less anxious which would use less of my energy, so I would need less sleep in the first place. Anyways now I remember. Our day started early with going into Queenstown to beat the traffic and the people so we could get a car park which worked well, so we arrived about 8.15 and then headed off to the Gondolas which were really cool well actually they weren’t they were rather scary but once we got to...
  10. "Hopepunk"

    If You Have a Rainforest Mind, You’ve Got Hopepunk This brought tears to my eyes. About two, maybe three years ago, there was a movie I went to see in the theater… Zootopia was the name… and the entire movie was about social justice. Somewhere in the middle of the film, it suddenly bopped me on the head that the main character was ME. Then it hit me that tons of movies and books main characters were really about people like ME. They’re portrayed as fictional characters, people see them and...
  11. Morning Routine

    I want to maximize my morning routine. I have about an hour between the time I wake & the time I start working. Some things I do automatically, like dress, feed cats, scoop litter box & drink coffee. I want to incorporate a breakfast & tighten my social media use. Today I made myself late looking at Facebook. Then lunch was early. I also had to clean my shared work space before I started. It adds up.
  12. Day Nine 8/01/19 Te Anau to Arrowtown

    I guess you’ll just have to wait and hear what happens because there’s a lot. Hopefully I remember it all coz well you’ll find out… Well the day started out with a trip to the supermarket via a camping store which I must say was very cool and stocked many things I hadn’t seen before. The supermarket was well a supermarket but there wasn’t really anyone there, so it was easy to survive. Then we walked back to the camper van via a coffee shop for mum and Olivia to get coffees and hot...
  13. Day Eight 7/01/2019 Te Anau

    First things first WE MADE IT HALF WAY!!!!!!! Who would have thought, I will be home this time next week and I am so so excited but also weary that I still have another week of this hell sort of a situation. Secondly yesterday was my sisters 13th birthday but don’t tell anyone that because things get expensive if we all have to pay adult prices ;) Not too much happened yesterday, we got up kinda late and Olivia opened her presents all of which she was very happy with and then we went to go...
  14. Supercool quotes n stuff.

    This is a collection of quotes that I emotionally resonated with, related to, or just found amusing for one reason or another. "Freebird, mantra of the moron." "It's all nonsense..." "Next you're gonna say: 'Knowing that won't help you any, punk.' Is that right?" "I don't have anymore tears to shed." "There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman. Some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me. Only an entity. Something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand...
  15. Day 7 6/01/19 Milford Sounds

    Today was wow like there was no other words to describe it and I actually had a good day for once well yes, I’m gonna say it was good but you’ll soon hear about the whole thing. And let me just say that today was reminded me that there is some beauties that a camera cant capture and that only ones eyes can truly see and appreciate but only if you are looking with the right eyes and well have taken almost 600 photos over the past 7 days but none of them truly show what I have seen and been...
