    everything you see,
    hear, read and do
    makes you who you are.

    pour your soul
    into every moment.
    that is life.
    that is living.

    Brian's Blog of the Day:

    The Inner Turmoil of Starting From Scratch



    we all have our demons.
    those haunting memories
    from damaged times gone by.
    unshakeable events
    which colour our thoughts
    and shape us into who we become.

    our common goal is to tame our inner miseries.
    quieten the noise.
    silence the inner critic.
    to accept the past for what it is,
    the past.
    history.

    what was is no more.
