BRAVE

Tags: favourite love



Bit of a weird one Today,
But as we have finally arrived at home in Perth Australia to Get Married which should be a joyous affair. I find myself Late at night caught up in what feels like over a weeks long jet lag, though I know deep down it truly isn't.
I end up wide awake pondering on life and all the possibilities and lessons I have learnt from it and no matter how easily I fit into my favourite bed and my old tattered slippers.. I cant help but feel that Home just doesn't really feel like Home anymore.
Not much has changed as I scramble to find my favourite foods in my favourite spots which didn't taste as good as i remembered they used to, The australian Sun is fading into the chill of winter and The countless stories I end up telling for the first few days that carry me into a awareness of longing and yearning for A brand New Home and of Unexplored cities containing new unspoken languages and exciting side alleys and dreamy Bakeries. There is something about wandering The earth that excites you, That entices you and Thrills you. That even if you touch the surface, Even if you cross all the coveted places off your bucket list, You will not be satisfied.
It Makes you feel courageous and as If you're suddenly living life to the fullest, You are real and exactly what you thought you would grow up to be like.
We are supposed to Travel, To be wild, To be free and BRAVE. As we all need reminding, tonights topic on the brain is some fun Advice for the fearless from the training to be fearless.

BE YOU
Not a second rate version of yourself.
Don't follow trends, Pick the clothes that you like, Not the ones that suit you.
Answer the phone in a weird noise.
Misunderstand things.
Take a date with yourself, Once a week
There is one chance at one time in your life to be you. Do not waste any more time being anybody else.

Move cities
Live somewhere where you don't know anyone (or the language)
Eat food that scares you
Follow roads to nowhere
Leave your phone at home
Don't stop learning
Speak to people who excite your curiosity

BE KIND
DON'T BE NEGATIVE OR NOBODY WILL LOVE YOU FOR IT.
Eat with your mouth closed.
Speak to elderly people, They know more than you think.
Open the door for people who are able bodied.

BE STRONG
Remember that some people like to find problems with whatever you try to achieve.
Dont Listen to negativity, Even if it feels like it comes from inside your brain.
Do listen to Old School Hip Hop.

BE BIGGER
Love with all of your heart
fall down,
Love even harder.

BE LOVELY 
Do not drink too much alcohol so you can't stand up.
Tell someone you love them.
Tell someone else you love them.
Go play with a dog.
Don't play with a cat, They don't like it.
Follow your JOY.

BE BOLD
Buy the multicoloured dress,
or wear black all the time.
Colour your hair
Speak in Long sentences
Drive a crappy car.
DON'T WASTE OPPORTUNITIES
