In life, people change, things change and we in ourselves change. We can’t control what happens in our lives, its not up to us. But what is up to us is whether we accept that changes are happening or we deny it. I have a lot going on in my life all the time and I find it very hard to accept. I feel disconnected from my family. I feel left out from my friends. I feel just incredibly alone as a whole. And I have found this very hard to deal with.

At the start of the new year, I decided that I was going to be more healthy and do more exercise. But as the year has gone on, I just haven’t had the time to do it. And this is something I am really regretting. I want to be able to do more exercise and just be more healthy. I just don’t have the time.

I was sitting reading “Love Tanya” by Tanya Burr when I could see what a great life she led. What a great life she aimed for. And I realised that’s what I want. So my challenge to myself now is to do all I can to live my life the way that I want. Not the way anyone else wants me to live it.

Being a Christian, I have daily Bible readings with a book that tells me how I can apply this to everyday modern day life. It said something that I just haven’t been able to get out of my head. It said ‘Don’t try to finish the picture when God has only drawn your outline’. I believe strongly that each and every one of us has a plan in life and God is the only person that knows it for He planned it for us. We can’t see whats going to happen until it does.

So, start living your life your way. Because its our life, not anyone else’s.

Bucket Lists


At some point in your life, you may write a bucket list. this is a list of things thats you want to do before you die. On mine, for example, there is small things like “go for a week without any technology” or “have a 24+ hour movie marathon” but there is also big things like “see the seven wonders of the world” or “watch the sunrise and sunset in one day with someone I love”. These are all things that I want to happen in my life, things I will strive for.

Bucket lists, I find are a very good way of planning your life. They make your life a bit more exciting. If you didn’t have the bucket list, it would be all boring. All work and no play. You’ve got to allow some time to do the fun stuff. I think that writing these sorts of lists whilst your young is the smartest thing to do. This is because you have the biggest dreams, the biggest aspirations as to what you want to do in life whilst you’re young. Once you get older, you start thinking more practically and forget that you once had dreams.

So my challenge to you is to write a bucket list, keep it in a safe place and complete it throughout your life. You may not get another chance.

Live while you are young.
