If Only We Could Be Strangers Again….

I started doing this blog or ‘personal diary’ around the year 2011 for reason’s I really can’t remember. It was called ‘Praying for one more day’, so I guess the title of the blog then was my reason. I came across as pathetic and wanting off sympathy maybe? I don’t actually care how many people read this page anymore, but I just checked and between 200 and 400 people read my page every day! Who are you…lol? Why? Why do you read the ramblings of a mad-man? Come forward and speak, please?

It is now late 2017 and here is ‘ShaunyNews’ I used to share World news the Main Stream Media would not cover, in a vain attempt to give others knowledge of the TRUTH. Oh how pathetic I was.

Anyway, this has taken an hour so far just to get to this stage; I may as well share a story. I just watched a movie starring Will Smith called ‘Collateral Beauty’ and wow did I cry like a little girl! But how UN-manly of me to admit I cried right? If you watch movies and love what a movie can do to you, like a song can, I advise you watch this movie. But only if you can take the emotion that is shared in the movie. I am warning you, this movie is upsetting! An emotion we all hide from in 2017

I mean what is a man in 2017? Tough, courageous, thoughtful? Brave? I really don’t care what the World says a man should be, I only care what my heart and soul tell me what is right these days. Every day is a battle for me, but EVERY DAY IS A BATTLE FOR EVERYONE, It took 6 years of typing on this page for me to figure out we all have a something, a thing that holds us back, an emotion we hide and protect ourselves from. Why? Well it is socially unacceptable behavior to show emotion in the year 2017, especially if you are a man. Yeah it all confuses me too!

Today the pain is killer, my mind is a mess. This process of getting up, living, then going to sleep again is now past Groundhog Day for me. The eventually of my existence is neither less nor more than yours, I know this much. Social status, how rich we are what we do, what we don’t do is irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. Today in 2017 not many people care enough, but I don’t think many realize they do it. Social Stigma, people pointing at our every action is something many avoid, yet here I am making myself a target, and that is ok, no! Really it is

The only certainty in life is Death, so till that day arrives should we live freely?

Often I do think about my past and everyone in my today and yesterday and think “What if we awoke total strangers to each other tomorrow”? What then? Would we walk past each other, would we stop and think ‘Déjà vu’? That is a thought, just a thought but one a movie invoked in me to write about.

See life can be as simple as just breathing in then breathing out, smiling and trying for the right reasons. Looking at what we do have as opposed to what we wish we did have. Stopping to notice how lucky we are in an uncaring World of 2017. Take a look at the news on the TV from time to time and then just stop and look around your own life. It ain’t so bad is it? But this all sounds easy to do, sadly for me it is not easy, everything is hard, I could blame people or life, so I will just blame both 😀

When will you start to live the way you want, and not the way life dictates how you should live? What binds these invisible shackles of oppression to us? Social stigma and Social bandwagons out-with our own control? I told you I think a lot! If what I write here is wrong to anyone, I would hate to know what is correct or ‘Socially Acceptable’ to the people of the year 2017, today I mean. After-all, my Words here will still be here LONG after I am gone. I would love to be around to see what people think of me, or maybe about the way I am able to express myself. I guess I will never know yeah? But do know I do look outwards to and at other people and dissect them in a way to purely understand them, God knows I try! But the only people I can look to or at and see fun, happy, honesty and love are my two Daughters. What World will await them? This is 2017, when they are my age it will be roughly the year 2055, how bad or good will the World be for them? NOW THAT GIVES ME FOOD FOR THOUGHT!

Till the next ramblings….

Songs for the woman in my life


Often we go through life, a year, month, weeks, a day, a moment, a special moment, and we don’t tell people “I love you” I learnt from my parents, even when things were hard to always say these words to the person in life who makes you complete. I don’t know any other woman like I know the amazing woman I am with today. We are both 40 (ish) years old, known each other since we were 11 and 12 (ish) She was the girl all the guys wanted, I kissed her in-front of her boyfriend when she was 14 or so, we had been amazing friends till then. I took that chance often others don’t, I made the plea many people let slip. I often sit and think “What if I had not plucked up the courage” this leads to “Where would I be today” And this is true. Every corner we turn, every movement we make, decision made, we turn left we find things we turn right we hit a brick walls. That is life, chance, thing’s just happen. I never knew aged 16 with a Pregnant partner who was 15 that I would be here today with all these amazing people around me, my partner amazing sons, 2 little princess’s, family and friends, extended family. My life could have sent me anywhere, so why here? ‘People’ can say to me “SHAUN YOU THINK TOO MUCH” or any “Shaun, you are an awful lad for…?Whatever” As I have grown older anger and hate have left my heart and mind, people who remember a Shaun who was in and out of jail, sadly some still see him, thankfully more see me now, lets face it I am hard not to be seen or heard, I draw attention to myself a lot. I often wonder what makes me write as I do now when I am actually a news writer. I don’t think the answer is important, all that matters is we are all where we are this moment. If in this moment you smile or think of a good memory then life is as good as it can be, can’t get worse for sure. So we forget yesterday, let it go we can’t change it. We smile today knowing all the mistakes we made yesterday made us happy in THIS MOMENT HERE. All we can do afterwards is hope the seeds we plant for tomorrow grow as we intended. For me life is this easy, people make life hard, some get a hard life, we all have a story, a reason, an issue, I am just like you, you are just like me if you are smiling reading this GOOD, if not, please try find that illusive moment before you run out of moments, we all day “Life goes too quick” yet do we stand still long enough to actually live and love? I am just typing as the music plays as my mind tells my fingers what to write. This took me an hour, writing is getting hard but I don’t define other people so I expect the same back, I am defined by who I am, my kids, partner and how we live, not what we have or don’t have. My priorities as I grow older, like us all, are in the right place, I could not imaging living in this pain and then choosing to let it beat me up all day every day.  Take a chance on smiling, you never know what will happen
