whats important, where you live or what your living for?

What’s more important, where you live or what you do for a living? What kind of question is that?! They are both as unimportant as each other. Where you live and what you do for a living should not be set as the basis for how someone is judged. What really matters is the way one holds themselves when they walk, the proficiency in which one speaks, and the gentleness of one’s disposition.

Where one lives does not matter in in the slightest. Some of the most successful, talented and kindest people I know live in very average houses in average neighbourhoods, and it does not influence their personality at all. They continue to be the best they can be, pushing on through their struggles and smiling all the while. I know their personalities will stay beautiful even if they move into mansions or a caravan in the middle of nowhere.

Jobs are important in some way as you need one to get through life, but the nature of the work you do is not important. Whether you are a singer, actor, office worker, journalist, novelist or professional athlete, you are still beautiful, talented and SUCCESSFUL.

Never let anyone tell you that you are worth less than them because of where you live and what you do for a living.

i get inspired by The Smiths easily

I really should be revising but for a moment I kind of wanted to write. So I did, although I have to admit I have wrote better things. This is just something I wanted to do to take my mind of some things.

Eat lots and lots of beautiful food. If you really want it, eat it. Go for long, purposeless walks both alone and with people you love. Walking is good for the body and the soul. Laugh at everything and frown at nothing. Know when to put others before yourself. Watch as many good movies as you can. Sing as loud as you want. Go out and learn new things about the world. Make friends. Love wholeheartedly. Try hard at school. Take care of your body, especially your eyes and your teeth, you will need them when you’re older. Trust others without hesitance or you will never learn to love. If you really want something, work hard in order to achieve it. Do one thing every day that scares you. Live with no regrets. Break the rules. Smile at least twice a day, more if you can. Donate to charities when you are able to. Do something you love every day. Tell those close to you that you love them all the time, you may never have another chance. Appreciate and love the beauty of your youth. Compliment people often, and accept compliments graciously. Buy things on impulse, and push away the guilt later. Learn something new every day. If you can afford it, travel a lot. Write meaningful messages in birthday cards. Get rid of toxic people from your life. Live in an apartment, live in a house, live with your friends, live with your partner, live alone. Find a job you love, but never let your life be ruled by it. Don’t judge people on first impressions, they are deeper than that. Don’t be too hard on your parents when you are young, you will understand them one day. Give everyone a chance. Believe in something, that faith will guide you through. Volunteer at a charity. Start a family and love your children with your entire being. Don’t be upset for long when things don’t go your way. Learn from your mistakes. Put your heart and soul into everything you do. Listen to the stories of others and learn all you can from them. Be kinder than necessary. Write a list of things you want to do before you die and ensure they are done. Set goals and stick to them. Be grateful for what you do have and never complain about what you don’t. Remind yourself every day how lucky you are. Finish what you start. Drink endless cups of tea. Surround yourself with beautiful friends and forgive readily. And the most important piece of advice I have, is simply

Stay true to your morals and beliefs, and live your life for no-one other than yourself. Sometimes it seems like you only exist to try and please everyone else, but remember this is your life. You have the right to live it the way you want to…. But please, please make it worthwhile.I really got inspired from the song of The Smiths, 'Please, Please let me get what I want'

I have just realised how much I love Cathays High School. It's fun to be around your friends and to meet new kinds of people everyday but it is not the things we learn that I am drawn to most, it is the fabulous and interesting people that I meet every day. Everybody has a story to tell about themselves (whether it’s interesting or not!) and these stories have given me a wealth of knowledge. Not facts, anyone can learn facts, butknowledge. Wisdom about the world and its inhabitants, about maturity and about being compassionate and empathetic. During these past few years at school, I have developed confidence, maturity and poise but most of all I have learned to be compassionate and understanding.

As I have said many times before, I try and live my life by the quote “Be nicer than necessary, because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.” Although many people talk to you with a smile on their faces, that smile often masks a deep sadness or struggle. Each person who walks into your life is having to deal with something, and a smile could be all they need to take their mind off it.

So next time someone really grumpy ignores your greeting, smile and give them a compliment. They may think you are being insincere by greeting them, especially if you work in a shop, but if you give them a genuine, honest compliment it is sure to brighten their day.
