mauri of me #52 ~ recap and finale.

Little sad to see the end of this segment. But pleased I’ve learnt some shit … now it’ll be practicing the art of ‘remembering’ this shit ;)

I’ve learnt:

  • It’s Ok; actually it’s more than Ok, to be different.

‘The Same’ is boring and stale. Imagine if we all were the same … Not Cool! And what a bland looking beige world it would be. We need, or more specifically, I Need, the fringes … the outside; the peripheral; the unfocussed and the unique. I absolutely need it and absolutely love it.

Not just the minimalist thing and not just cos I like simplicity … but because uncomplicated is where most of my learning and absorbing takes place. We make everything so complicated … yet the view of a child usually has more clarity than some puffed up old scientist.

  • Change can be scary – but it’s necessary.

Change, for Me, has always meant ‘erratic’ and unpredictable. And I guess to a certain degree there is an element of that. But change, I have learnt, is also a necessary part of life. It doesn’t have to unpredictable. Like nature, it has it’s ebbs and flows, and while theres variations in those, they are predictable. And if I’m taking notice, they’re actually quite beautiful.

So, there you have it.

All the Mauri of Me that I have at the moment.

Again, thankyou one and all for every little bit of feedback and conversation; every encouragement : like, comment and smiley face, that y’all have given over the last year.

I appreciate it all.

Thanks for helping Me Grow :)



366 reasons to smile ~ +365 – Finale.


Well it’s been 2 years of “366 slash 365 Reasons to Smile” … time go’s faster than you realise ay.

The purpose of doing these posts (as with everything (believe it or not) in this Blog), was to find the positive, or at least a smile, within a day; Everyday.

I think in 2 years of doing this theres only been 1 day when I couldn’t find anything to smile about, which I think is pretty fan-fucking-tastic!

The things that have given Me a necessary laugh or smile have ended up being #memes, little sayings, little items or memories … they’ve never been anything huge or even earth shattering … but over the last 2 years they’ve achieved what I didn’t think was possible at the beginning of my awesome blogging career …

I Found My Smile :) And I do believe I’ve slowly learnt how to maintain that! It doesn’t have to be large or earth moving … it’s just the little things … the little things that make you remember and appreciate that Your life is good, no matter who you are and what the haps are.

So this is my last post for this segment … Because … Well I’ll leave it to D’Angelo to explain …

Love and light to you all and Thankyou a thousand times over for every ‘Like’; every ‘Comment’; every ‘Emoji’ and every thought every one of you has ever given!

You have helped Me find My smile again and I am eternally grateful to You All <3
