The Future Looks Bright

Hello my lovelies, 

Sorry for the lack of posts recently its not because I am not doing the blog anymore, the opposite in fact. Marlow Lou is growing. Some exciting things have come up in the last few weeks so I am just trying to get on top of launching a new site, doing various collaborations and providing you with some amazing new content. I am actually so excited. So don't worry if I don't seem to be posting much because an onslaught of material will be on your doorstep in the coming weeks. eeeeek

You are my sunshine

I was trying to take some pictures recently but I got camera shy so I instead focused all my attention on the little smoosh by my feet. Needless to say he is far better looking than I so he probably did deserve the limelight.

I recently visited my home city to spend nearly a month with this little guy and his mother. It is incredible to think that you can love another human being so much when he isn’t even your own child!  

I am so thankful for what he has brought into my life, he has been the driving force behind rekindling a deep love; admiration and happiness with someone whom I never thought would play that type of role in my life. She is now one of the most beautiful people in my universe and I could not imagine life without her. 

After ten long years of being distant and apart, after a year of new life, I love you more than is humanly possible

To my Smoosh and Betty

The Mask

You felt powerful praying on the weaknesses of others. It made you feel better to see others suffer. You may not realise or recognise it, but that is what you wanted. It made you feel strong, wanted and in control when others needed you. It was easy to blame the weaknesses of others for your problems, you relished in the fact, belittling them with a smile and a warm embrace. You didn’t want love, you didn’t want joy, or happiness, but you wanted to feel needed.

You would drag that person until there was no flesh left, just a skeleton of broken bones. But you, nothing could penetrate you. Not the flesh torn from the bones, or the crumbling soul of those you tried so hard to destroy. You say you felt nothing. You felt everything so much so that it scared you. You took out this fear on those who cared about you. In the end it was not those who you hurt that were left with nothing, it was you. Emotionless, soulless and alone. 

Power can either lift people up to do good or smother the person in its power. You are smothered. To you power was a game but people are sick of your game. Their bodies rejuvenate and start to slowly rebuild, whilst you will still be toying with people, pretending you once cared, they are growing. Not in power but in love, compassion and kindness. 

Be powerful for the right reasons, be strong within yourself and never stop growing and bettering yourself. A person can only make you feel what you let them. No one can have power of you unless you allow it to happen.

Don’t wait around hoping someone will change, better yet if they want to change you, give them a smile and walk away. You are amazing just the way you are. I don’t care if you don’t know who that is right now; you are on a journey of self discovery that will mould you, and you right now is pretty fucking fantastic.

Double Denim

I have been away over the last few weeks relishing in the love of my family, the feeling of contentment being back home and the inner peace I have experienced escaping reality for a little while. I've needed time to remove myself from the four walls of my mind and go venture back to my true self. 
For a while there I had forgotten who I was. I now return home happy, loved and alive.  Im back with a galaxy of energy and happy to say that in this moment I love the person I am. Here is to being your own individual, crazy selves. Love yourself and the universe will love you back.

While We're Young

"I used to think I was the strangest person in the world
but then I thought there are so many people in the world,
there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and
flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and
imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, 
I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, 
yes its true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you."
