As we settle into our box
We begin to grow
Surrounded by weeds
We must trim
The new video game Dead Island 2 has finally released and I am super excited to play it. I haven’t got it yet because it is expensive at around £60. I would love to stream the gameplay to this website or upload the videos here for you to watch! That might be a thing in the future.
Let me know if you’d like to watch me play the latest games. Dying Light 2 was released last year but it’s on my list.

Did you feel me as I left
not that the weight was very heavy
but the plants were watered
my animals were fed
it was empty
filled with dusty bookshelves
and endless diaries
pages written upon
so that the house
can be your sanctuary
Butterflies Dreams – A Sonnet
Decayed wasteland riddled with fractured dreams
A puny mound of soggy, earth matter
engulfed in frosted flakes, bare branches
crusting spirit membrane, stiff ether rods.
Worms slither through death valley, on to hope
Birds song echoes through roots laden in mold
Chiming awake Gods waves, preparing us
For drops of scorching sun, and blues we shun
Awaken us to our desire, spring sun
just as man fell onto this plane, in birth
a flowers blooms and Christ's wounds, are revealed
a new day and fresh life carries our soul
forward, through ivy grass, roses and brush
finally at peace within, time to wash away our sin.
not on my rest day
you'll be waiting for me
across the lake
between the night
through your charm
and snake delight
I charge through fire
to meet you at the edge...
of your desire
Whilst we wait
we hope, we pray
that our vision will unite
and befall our enemies
under Gods power
so that we
can live in our tower
Night is young
Embark on the causal subways of the times
Figures elongated in mind
Finding the bait
I can't negate
Distant screams of a broken future
Cries that cannot be found
Your all around
Yet we search for escape
And find no exit door
After having a read through sites lately I noticed that the general negative attitude of people is generally being dominated by positive messages. I am enjoying seeing these uplifting and heart warming posts. Particularly on Twitter (follow me if you want: @Thomas87520559).
It wasn’t long ago that the timelines – mine at least – was obscured with such ill wishes. Of course a lot are real, insulting and dangerous. Most can be classed as bait, stirring up arguments among the Writing Community. Join the community by talking to the indie authors on Twitter. Thankfully a lot of people are waking up to the fact that not responding and antagonising such people is better. I was ready to delete my account at one point before the new year because all I saw was arguing! It’s not nice!
Well this brings us to the title of this post. You are Enough. You are, truly. Don’t feel like you are worth less because you don’t respond to the negativity. Don’t feel like less even if you do. Don’t compare yourself to those who produce negativity and hate and then tell you it’s your fault. Stay true to yourself. You are enough the way you are, nobody else defines that. So, no matter how much it might impact you, in reality it shouldn’t.
I love the above quote. You don’t need to feel less worthy if for example, you wrote a story but didn’t get published. You don’t need to feel like you are better than people who haven’t published either, if you have. These are dangerous comparisons. Sure, you have goals, aims and such but that is your life. Not theirs.
I can imagine that the reason that many people are depressed or anxious is because they think it’s a race, a competition. It’s not, no matter what people say. This is life and you can do what you want. You do not need to be wearing someone else’s clothes to feel good, nor do you have to be driving a sporty car, or running ten miles a day.
If you are happy to be you, then you will always be happy.
Aside from that I’m writing on my work I’m progress today. It’s a ghost story if you are wondering. Strange happenings. I hope to have a good first draft by mid-February latest. I’m not keen on working on anything else at the moment. Although I did have another story in the works, it can wait.
That’s enough chat, time for a poem. Titled You are Enough.
Amethyst is a widely available and modesty priced crystal compared to many others. It is one of the more potent crystals with powerful healing properties.
You can feel an instant peace of mind when you are in the presence of this crystal, or when you hold it. It’s a crystal composed of vibrant purples and white colours, both high vibration associations.
Amethyst is from the quartz family. It can be found all over the world. And it widely used within the developed world.
The crystal possesses metaphysical properties. The main ones being calm, balance and peace with are brought about to those who have this in their aura or vicinity. The importance of calm in meditation make it ideal for using during your sessions.
As for healing, it’s a crystal known to help improve mental clarity and aid in sobriety. That’s only one healing. It is powerful in emotional, physical and spiritual healing as well. Emotional healing comes in the form of calm mind, more patience, better ability to sedate and transform your negative emotions into positive ones and even a better ability to feel mentally secure. In other words the crystal will help you feel like you are better, and it works as soon as you hold it.
Physically it works with the body to improve circulation. It can help heal physical ills inside us, by strengthening our adrenals and heart, and by increasing the immune systems effectiveness. It enhances our physical vitality. Amethyst works in healing the pancreas and spleen and aids in cleansing the lungs too. So if you are sick, unwell etc. it will help you recover quicker.
Stress relief that comes from this crystal aids physical and emotional healing along with its ability to detoxify the body, likely from the increased circulation that comes from using the crystal. It is a high vibration crystal so you might want to use a grounding stone along side amethyst.
In summary, the benefits are as follows:
enhancing the immune system
improving endocrine function
improving the skin’s appearance
promoting digestive health
I suspect that all of those benefits come from the increased circulation and improved stress. It is a powerful crystal that it able to transform the negative to positive.
