Express yourself! 

As I walked through Manchester yesterday I saw this on the wall of a grey tunnel.
 I love it for all kinds of reasons.

Firstly someone bothered to write it.

I love the grammar because I’m assuming that means the author is young.

I love the fact someone young expressed themselves so vibrantly.

I even love the fact the person who wrote this has had an experience meaning they know …. the course of true love certainly doesn’t run smooth!!! 

In a week where the younger generation have had their voices heard and have provided what I think is a legacy that we can build on for the future. A voice for Decency.  Calm. Determination. Truth. Inclusiveness.  I’m basically writing a high five to you.

Nobody should be scared to express themselves.  It could be telling someone they make you happy or even telling someone they’re not. It could be giving your voice to a cause or writing down in a diary just for you.  It could be that you simply smile or say well done.  It can be through music or a painting. It could be through tears or laughter. It might be through love.
Whatever way it is.  

Express yourself!

Happy Sunday xx

Manchester 

I’ve had a beautiful weekend. Sun. Jacuzzi. Love. Dogs. Walks. Fizz. 

All the time though Manchester is not far from my heart.

It’s heart breaking to read the devastation of innocent lives.

Almost as difficult is to read the tirade of abuse towards one culture. 

What can we do? Words only can seem futile…. yet bombs, knives and guns…… just kill people.

I could go on a political rollercoaster but I won’t. 

Laugh at this or call me a do-gooder… we can only judge someone when we know them. We can only be responsible for how we behave. We can choose to be kind.  We can decide to bring our kids up to be compassionate. We can be accepting of people who are different. We can change. We can look out for our neighbour. We can smile and say hello to a stranger. We know better than to only look after ourselves. We can stop pointing the finger. We can stop spewing hate. We can be kind. We can.

Hate breeds hate.

Love breeds love. 

Too simple yes but it’s the only ammunition I’ve got.
Lots of love on this Sunday xxx
