Its just 5 things.....

Let me not swerve the fact that I have been a little quiet over the past 8 months and to be fair a tad isolated and unavailable from the world around me!

Sometimes life throws stuff at you that at the time seems almost impossible to deal with, when this happens, and it will, you have two choices, fight it with every bit of energy you have or accept it!

May I offer some advice?

Accept it, learn from it and whatever you do don't spend every piece of your energy re-living it, just know it "Is" but no longer needs to "be" and you will grow, sit in the pain and you'll well, sit in the pain!

Right on to a very pleasant couple of weeks spent warming up the shimmer of angel dust that is Emma Willis!

I have had the pleasure now meeting and warming up Emma Willis over the past couple of weeks and I have to to tell you without any question"A star is born!"

Many of you will know I have huge bugbear about celebrities being labelled "Stars" They do not even come close, so when I see one being born out of talent you will have to excuse my excitement

This lovely presenter of television is heading for a long and very successful career! I cant quiet put my finger  on it (You never truly can) but she has that certain "Something" that just makes you want to hang on her every word and be in her company! I am also happy to report she is utterly charming, extremely polite and nothing less than a joy to work with.

Today's youth will never really know what is going on around them and honestly I think the implications of this are far greater than it seems now. Face to face conversations unless in "Text speak" will be a thing of the past and this saddens me greatly! Twitter, Facebook, Whats-App, texting, Kick, You tube and my space The list goes on but wait, I am sure I heard my Dad say something similar, fuck, that's it I am old. Its an easy argument to put down the youth of today, but they will be just fine and to be honest with you there is not one thing I or indeed we can do in the world to change it, Why? Because we are now officially old!

One thing I love about my country is our sense of humour and this written on Katie Prices car is a great example of that...

A number plate work 25 times the value of the car....prick!

I respect the fact she tried to get a "Match" thing going on..

Itchy candy anyone?

The greatest wheelie bin ever??

I read an article recently and sent it to a few friends, its one of those articles that seems to stay with you forever and talking to a mate yesterday it once again brought me to spend some time thinking about my life, its title,

Top 5 things dying people has wished........

1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
"This was the most common regret of all. When people realise that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honoured even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made. Health brings a freedom very few realise, until they no longer have it."
2. I wish I hadn't worked so hard.
"This came from every male patient that I nursed. They missed their children's youth and their partner's companionship. Women also spoke of this regret, but as most were from an older generation, many of the female patients had not been breadwinners. All of the men I nursed deeply regretted spending so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence."
3. I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings.
"Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. As a result, they settled for a mediocre existence and never became who they were truly capable of becoming. Many developed illnesses relating to the bitterness and resentment they carried as a result."
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
"Often they would not truly realise the full benefits of old friends until their dying weeks and it was not always possible to track them down. Many had become so caught up in their own lives that they had let golden friendships slip by over the years. There were many deep regrets about not giving friendships the time and effort that they deserved. Everyone misses their friends when they are dying."
5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.
"This is a surprisingly common one. Many did not realise until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called 'comfort' of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content, when deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again."
I really don't want to add anything else as I hope you can ponder the above and ultimately take action on it!
