the truth... or is it?

Hey bloggers,

Beautiful day outside, the sun is shining, blue skies from where I am. Hope it's going well for you.

Below is a list of answers I received after asking this question, "What is the truth?". Take the time to read through and think about what the truth means to you. It probably means all this and alot more in so many different worlds. Maybe this will help you discover just what the truth is in your world.

- How you perceive something.
- What is right.
- Means to care about your friends.
- Hurts alot.
- Is out there.
- I don't know anymore.
- The cure.
- Different things to different people.
- The right thing.
- Not a lie.
- The truth
- What is right.
- Honest.
- Truth is in the heart, and it can set you free!
- Something thats happened in the past.
- What is proper.
- All that is not false.
- Easily blurred and becomes whatever you can justify to yourself.
- Belief
- "You can't handle the truth!"
- Something that will set you free.
- What is real.
- Doesn't lie.
- It's so hard to know what is truth in a world with so many shades of grey.

Take care.

in the rail car.

"Nothing stays forever,
Kingdoms rise and Kingdoms fall.

Headphones in, let's escape.
Music for dreaming of another place.

The road is long, getting longer by the day.

Hit me with your best shot,
but your best shot
isn't good enough to hit me." - JAJ

a choice.

Hey bloggers,

Today's words are a poem I wrote while sitting in the waiting room at hospital. I was with my friend and he was getting x-rays.

Sometimes we can make the best from the worst if we have a positive attitude. The poem itself may not be 100% positive under the circumstances, but writing down the experience gave me something positive to do while sitting there.

I really enjoyed my time in the waiting room and would go again for another poem just like this...

"children with books,
now everybody looks,
the nurse just called for him.

wheelchair rolling down.
can you please turn me around?
baby crying, “mum, this hurts!”

Does anyone really deserve to be here?

questions come from everywhere, papers shuffled out of the way.

this is the end… for now." - JAJ

"...The sunlight catches my feet off guard
as I fall into motion and hit the ground hard.
The shadow I see tells my soul I'm not alone
as lie a few moments and enjoy this unknown." - JAJ

Morning all.

Sometime in life we have so much to give, but somehow we don't realise our full potential. Please don't let your life pass you by. There are so many ways to connect with those around you. Sometimes you just have to be brave and believe in yourself.

Today's words of the now...

"We are all mostly invisible except for the brief moment we step out of the shadows." - JAJ

Don't be invisible, get out of the darkness and step into the light. Enjoy your life!

Ready... But Waiting.

Hello bloggers.

What I'm about to say follows on from yesterday, it's all about being ready to move, but still waiting for the right time.

Over my life on earth I have spent many days in cafes drinking coffee and observing the people around me in their daily comings and goings. One thing I always see is people waiting for something to happen. One morning I was drinking my latte and sitting next to me was a odd looking fellow who was in fact a tourist visiting Ballarat. I know this because he was reading over the local guide of things to do and see and also had the Ballarat map close by. After observing for sometime I finally decided it was time to interact, but just as I was about to speak the waitress came over and noticing what he was doing she said, "what are you waiting for?", he then replied with a tone that insisted I'm not going to justify what I am doing here by saying, "I'm just looking for the right place to visit first". The waitress gathered the feeling she wasn't wanted for advice, so she quickly got back to her job. The man finished his coffee, paid and left the building never to be seen again.

All this makes me think about how often we want to do things in life, but spend our days trying to find the best way to do it. Maybe we just need to stop planning and start exploring. Why don't we let world show us what we should be doing?

Today's words of the now read like this,

"You can't find the world on a page." - JAJ

Think about it. We were made to enjoy our lives and I plan on doing just that. There is a time for planning, but there is also a time when the planning has to be acted upon. Don't let the map direct you to nowhere.

Thanks for reading, enjoy your day. Let me know what you get up to!

Hi Bloggers!

What a glorious day outside! Sunshine beams down from above and we get the chance to play like children again. Maybe today is the first day of the rest of your life? I know it sounds clique, but think about what that means. Everyday can be the beginning all over again, but you have to make that choice, and maybe that's a choice you're making for the very first time.

Books are great fun to read and we all enjoy a day inside relaxing in favourite chair. I mean with the weather lately being not so 'Spring' it's been really easy to simply stay indoors and read, listen to music, enjoy resting. One problem though is sometimes we have a habit of liking the comfort of that favourite chair so much it holds us back from getting outside and into the gorgeous sunshine.

Now, I'm not saying there is anything wrong with reading a good book and relaxing, but maybe you can do that and you can also spend some of today outside adventuring too...

Today's words of the now,

"Step ouside of the book and adventure might just step outside of you." - JAJ

Remember, you only get one chance at most things in life, so don't let this opportunity pass you by, because you may never get it back again.

That's it for now, enjoy your adventure!

Day One...

Hey bloggers,

This marks the beginning of "The Daily Buzz" - Day one is very exciting!

Today's words of the now read like this,

"with hands gripped tightly to the handle bars,
but still we are losing control,
and what happens if we choose to let go?
Maybe we'll find out exactly what we've always needed to know..." - JAJ

Until next time, enjoy your day...
