100 Meters To Harmony

Think Harmony and gain power.

What do you see when you look at this picture? A man with a Smartcrutch perhaps!

Okay you would be right this is a man with a crutch and yes he is stood by a waterfall! And yes it is also me!

However, believe it or not I am stood less that 100 meters away from a busy town, main road and even a school.

With in meters of going off the beaten track I found peace and quiet. A little bit of harmony.

I could not hear the busy world on the other side of The wooded area I was in. I could not hear people or cars. All I had was birds and of course the water rushing behind me. For me this is my harmony but for others this can be found in different ways.

You see you don’t need to travel to the end of the earth to give yourself space you just need to travel a few 100 meters and you can have all the space you need.

Give yourself room to breath and think and you will create a healthier space in your mind to think and gain balance. With balance you gain your own harmony.

Don’t forget to live!

Today, I will not stress over things I can’t control. I will however live for the things that are in my reach.

A Tunnel of focus

Recently I enjoyed a fantastic and need I say inspiring day.

“I am a roll model for young people” I am their Tunnel of focus. Apart of the Big Ideas Wales Project

That was the outcomes of the recent course! That offers me a few fears. Am I the right person for the job?

My Business is based on me telling my story! My life journey! A path of ups and downs. I ask myself time after time am I doing the right thing with Seenobounds?

Can I make this work?

Then I realise that somehow I am making it work! I am doing it! And then the fear of success strikes me.

What if I actually get it right?

What then?

Truth is who knows. The picture in this post was taken after I had got out of the class room and going for a walk. I came across this bridge and I connected it to my day…

Its a tunnel with one way in and one way out, a path if you like that we have to follow. Guided only by the walls on either side. In the tunnel is a gate! Sometimes that gate will be open and other times closed.

For me this image represented a focus, with a light at the end of the tunnel! The gate symbolised an object or obstacle that could prevent me from getting from A to B…

This is basically my random example of focus and taking guidance. But also a symbolic statement of achievement because not only did I walk through the tunnel from one side to the other and the gate did not on this occasion cause me any issues,

I also remembered that the tunnel itself was an example of if you can’t go around and obstruction in your life maybe the best way to go is directly through the middle.

A Picture of Calm Chaos

A Picture can say more than just that.

I love this it is a picture taken by my beautiful partner Charlott.

A Picture that shows an image of calmness. Blue skies and long views of fields and natural beauty. I am stood gazing into the country with what seems to be a clear mind.

Granted a lot of that is true except the wind was wild and strong enough to wipe you off your feet. Whistling across the landscape taking no prisoners. Chaos all around us.

We was protected in a little cove as we ate a lovely picnic making the most of the moment. Why am I writing all this?

Simple this image is one we all face and see every day. Calm faces pleasant smiles and what can only be assumed as blue skies!

However very often it is in fact a wind swept mind of chaotic emotions. Be kind to all and remember that sometimes it’s not what you see, it is what that person wants you to see.

10 year challenge – See No Bounds

So here it is my 10 year challenge.

A 10 year challenge for most but a 5 year challenge for myself.

10 years ago stood on the summit of sugar loaf. (Top left) Able bodied and not a care in the world.

5 years ago climbing Pen Y Fan in a wheelchair 9 months after losing the use of my legs. Bottom Left) in the pic I am having my hands taped back together by the team first aid member.

And then there is y years after that (right). At the top of Hay Bluff walking with my Smart Crutch 10 years on from the first photo, even though I will never be the person I was 10 years ago.

I will always be the guy that drives myself to reach my goals. You can reach your summit and that is a promise.

Remembrance

The world is currently moving around me!

I know all about remembrance. Those I have lost and seen fall. This day is never an easy one for many, and nor is it for me.

I realise that I am a small spec in the world. Yet for me the world is a beautiful place.

The world is Made up of amazing things and even though, I, a small spec in this world I appreciate what it has on offer.

On Days like this we often look at the those we have lost. So on this day i have decided to look at the thing we fight so hard for in-order to protect.

I have not marched remembrance to remember those of my friends I have lost I have put my head phones in and sat by this pond.

I am thinking about their families and their children. Where are they now? How do they feel today? Is this a day of sadness or pride?

The sun has come out to shine down on us and with the crisp chill in air this is a good day to be thankful for our peace.
