Paradox of life

Posted in Creativity, Life, Personal with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 21, 2015 by vixstar1314

My worse fear is the deaths of those I care. Yet they are realities which will happen eventually just not sure when. And the realisation and thought that is just heart wrenching. Paradox of life and love is death and pain.

This is life!

I may look young but I have seen and known pain and suffering. I have experienced a lot of bumps and falls in my life.

My foundations of life and living is rather profound. However I rarely share these with those around me as I am consciously aware that the majority of them have been bound by perspectives created by society known as “life today,” the images, the celebs, the materialistic aspects, the need for more of everything that is in actual fact hollow and empty, the short bursts of what they deems as “happiness.” In a non conform society one would see these stuff as without depth. Therefore I feel as if i have been born into the wrong time and place. An alien on this planet in this “society”.

So I reframe from expressing majority of my thoughts and feelings because they are so different from others. So much more clear and clean  cut. I guess this is where my blog comes in sometimes, as here I feel that the typing allows the freedom in me to flow out into a different hemisphere – the cloud.

When medicine meets desperation

R.I.P Sarah Houston and all the others too.

Thank you JG (jinxedgeneration) for sharing this vital article with us, which also helps to bring awareness to others about the risks that certain “medicines” can entail.

Increasingly we are living in a society whereby “image” and certain “stereotypes” are portrayed as being “better” and “ideal”. Of course these are influenced by different aspects, however the strongest of all are the ones shown by the media. It becomes harder for people to feel comfortable in their own skins when so much around them are made to look “perfect” and when certain “images/traits/size/clothes/accessories…” are seen as making you better than others.

When had times become so much more complex?

I believe we should all try our best to go with what we personally think we are comfortable with. I know it is easy said than done, but if more of us don’t conform with the “typical images” that are being portrayed in our society today, then the “norm” will slowly shift thus making differences more acceptable. Therefore more people will feel comfortable as they are.

Sarah Houston, 23, is dead.

The Leeds University student died from “misadventure”, according to the coroner, after reacting badly to a weight-loss drug she had taken, known as DNP, alongside anti-depressants.

The view from inside out

Posted in Life with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 16, 2012 by vixstar1314

As I was walking today I started noticing a lot around me, stuff that normally does not get processed through my mind because it’s “just there” – backgrounds that are in life.

I saw as the week passed how different the sky and ground looked.

The sky fluctuated from grey, to blue, to dull, to foggy, to white.

The ground went from covered by crispy leafs to damp and drained leafs to dead leafs.

My mind wondered how the seasons had passed by like a gush of wind, just as I felt the chill going down my spine.

Through my lenses I saw also how time had passed by me so quickly. How changes had engulfed a lot of my inside. How the outside had changed. Like most of us, I know that change is adamant but forget sometimes. Until it forces you to come face to face with it.

{The Season Cycle}

 Winter-Spring-Summer-Autumn-Winter-Spring-Summer-Autumn

{The Life Cycle}

Birth – Growth – Illness – Death – Birth – Growth – Illness – Death

{The Process Cycle}

Bottom – Rise – Peak – Fall – Bottom – Rise – Peak – Fall

My lenses that combined “Autumn” and “Time” to give the below image:

The Philosophy: It all goes round and round. Stopping for no one. The beauty and the flaw that entails everything and everyone in life.

This reflection caused a flashback to a image I once came across in life. A perculiar image. My own interpretation of it in very short terms were the unexplainable and weird ups and downs of everyday life.

The actual meaning behind it can be found on the below link:

Society – Weight – Skinny

Posted in God, introspective, Life, Personal, Society, This May Help U!, Thoughts with tags , , , , , , , , on March 24, 2011 by vixstar1314

This week I had a passing conversation with a friend,  we were talking about food and weight and

I had said you are skinny

and she replied I want to be skinner.

I was a bit taken back by this so without really thinking I said any skinner and you will be bones.

To my astonishment she replied bones is good.

This conversation lingered on my mind after, hence the post I am writing today. Where do you draw the line?

Where do you draw the line in regards to dieting, how much you say to someone, so how much to intervene into their business? I did want to say, you may have a issue, with food and self image, but is that ok to say? I feel as if it’s not my place but at the same time I have a sense of worry for my friend, even though we are not very close friend’s but I still care.

This brings me onto society, the factor of image: skinny and slim means more than often, beauty. This is of course not true but we have seen with our own eyes how so many enter into the entertainment industry and they have “changed;” become skinner. Examples such as the following: Leona Lewis, Alexandra Burke, Beyonce, Charlotte Church, Kate Winslet, Jennifer Hudson, more recently Lady Gaga. So when you are growing up and you are surrounded by these you ultimately are influenced one way or another by these, and it can affect your confidence and self image.  This is much more likely to be a issue for younger generation/teens as the growing up phase is already hard and this mixed with hormones and emotions means that they are likely to be more influenced by things around them.

The issues I have raised seem to be mainly for girls/women, of course image applies to men too, especially in today’s society but women tend to judge themselves more on image and women judge each other too. Making this all a bit harder.

These issues can be very dangerous if it spins out of control, it is hard to stay focus on the right path when there are so many distractions and hurdles but we need to remember God made us this way for a reason, we need to love ourself, forget about what other people think about you, or what they are doing, love yourself.
