The original dream will ignite the north star.

We feel a certain way because we think a certain way. We think a certain way because we were trained that way. This might seem very simplistic, but it is rather simplistic. It is like following stepping stones, getting caught up in the motion and before you know it, you are miles away.
We have so many roles on the stage of life and it is so easy to get caught up in the labels. It just makes everything a bit easier. With each label comes a set of rules and expectations and you don't have to think about it so you can get on with the real thing which we call life. But we forget, that where ever we go and who ever we think we are or try to be, the self, goes everywhere with you, inside of you.
The original dream will ignite the north star, will remind you of you.

Yes, love is sometimes red fat with sharp edges, love is sometimes smelly like baby poo when you change the nappy for the sixth time in the middle of the night. Love is the smell of vomit when you are the only one without a tummy bug. Love is sticky and dirty like sweets in the sand pit. Love is having your hands bitten when your dog is in pain. Love is hovering on the edge of madness when they are late or not answering their phones. Love is drinking cold coffee and cleaning the drain. And this is just one day. But love is more than this, much much more. And you thought you knew what love is, moonshine and roses?

An alternative definition of trauma.

Over the years, coming from my own understanding and own trauma, I have formulated an alternative definition of trauma.  A definition that w...
