Sia - Helium / Love is ... by Melanie Toye

Love is
Written by Melanie Toye

To enjoy my reader experience, please turn on the music and read my words.



Love is ...
Love is inclusive
Love is brilliant
Love is safe 
Love is comfort

We look for love, in all things. 
In people, in partners, in lovers.
I wonder what would happen if we chose to love ourselves first.
Not in an egotistical way.
No.
Love ourselves in putting ourselves first.
In seeing our best qualities.

Finding beauty in everything.

Life is brilliant.
Life is full.
We make the life we want. 
We decide what will make us.
We decide how we choose to feel.
But most importantly, we choose how to live each day.

What do you want to experience in life?

Being the master of your own universe,
Puts you in complete control
of your destiny.

People are brilliant.
People are kind.
Find those people who make you smile.
Be with them as one.
Watch the energy build.
Watch the power within that energy.

When people come together, it shakes the energy around us.
It’s time, time, to not just be you but to unite with others, as one.
Life is grand, life is brilliant, life should be lived.

Love is beautiful.
Love is sweet.
Love is trusting.
Love is growth.

Love is a risk.

Sam Smith - Too Good At Goodbyes / Melanie Toye - Wondering


Wondering

Written by Melanie Toye

To enjoy my reader experience, please turn on the music clip below and read my words to the music for the ultimate reader experience.


Written by Melanie Toye

I wonder ... if life were different. 
If time didn't fly by. 
Would the world around us be in a state of misery?

I always thought I chased life. Went after it with full zest.
Then my world came crushing down around me. 
I don't know when I stopped listening to my own heart. 

But its now time to focus on me, my happiness. 
It's time to let go of the past. 
The memories.
The sadness.
The good and the bad.

I wonder ... if life will be different?
Will I continue to be unhappy?
Will misery follow me at every turn?

I want to be happy.
I want a full life filled with love.
I want someone by my side who supports me. 

I want something better. 
I want something more. 
I want, I want, I want ...

Happiness is a funny word. 
One I used to use freely and regularly. 
Now I wonder what happiness is. 
Is it just moments.
Will I ever truly smile again?
I wonder ... 

Life is a mystery. 
We wake up, we breathe, we die. 
I wonder the mystery of the in-between. 

What are the point of the stories? 
When most stories go untold.
Is it to be held in someone's heart for their life?
And once they pass, the memories die forever?
I wonder....

I wonder will I ever be happy? ... 
I wonder ... 
One day I hope to be.

Alan Walker - Faded / Life by Melanie Toye (Instrumental version)


Life

Written by Melanie Toye

To enjoy my reader experience, please turn on the music clip below and read my words to the music for the ultimate reader experience.






I wonder,would life be different if I lived it again? Would I choose the same path that I chose for me earlier on? 

Would I watch it go, disappear as if it never happened? 
When so much did? 
So much. 

How do you forget it all? 
You can't and you shouldn't.
It's what propels us further,
it makes us who we are. 

Life as it seems right now, is where you have chosen to be. 
Whether you are feeling trapped, you have choices, opportunities to be great, to be you. 

People who say things. 
People who say you will never find a way again. 
Let those words of fear fall.
You can do what ever you want.
This is the time for change.
This is the time to live the life you really want.

No more accepting what is. 
You strive the extraordinary. 
Watch yourself soar,
as you experience new heights,
new successes,
new friendships.

Life is meant to be challenged, pushed and fought hard for what you really want it to be. 
Don't accept anything less.
You are amazing.

It's time to get real
You are amazing
You are unique and you should celebrate this
Life comes around us
So celebrate
Celebrate every day
Every day is precious
Even though it may seem ordinary
You can make it amazing

It's time for you to find what you really want from life
Find it, chase it, embrace it.
I can assure you, life is amazing, life is grand, you just have to open your eyes and let your heart feel.

Yes, the world can break your heart but it will never break your spirit.

Choose to dance in the rain, chase the rainbows and dare to believe that there is something greater for you to achieve.

Life is precious and so are you.

Once you start to look around and change your ways, something ignites in your soul, you find a new beginning to where you are, even if you have been traveling the long road without any fun. Now is your time, embrace it, chase it and uncover the real you.

P!nk - Just Like Fire (From the Original Motion Picture "Alice Through The Looking Glass") Source via: YouTube


It's time to live, really live. You know where you let your imagination soar. Into realms and worlds that don't seem even to be real. The world could be an amazing place if we didn't let fear attack our thoughts. What would your world vision be?

Peace?
Happiness?
Free will?

Imagine.
Imagine.
Imagine.

Your imagine can be a reality if you make the difference. Start spreading your ideas, thoughts and passions for the world you want it to be and see what other people think. Get their opinions, ideas and passions.

Run with it.
Run with your ideas.
Your imagination and passion for a better world.

Be the voice that the world is craving for. The action that requires us to get off the couch and make a difference. Stand up for what you believe in. Use your imagination to really think about how you want to live and how you want generations after you to live.

How will fix it? How will you solve the problem that you currently live in? How will you make the change?

Research. Look deep into it. See what people around the world are doing to make the change. Is it working? What can you do to improve it? Build on it? And introduce it to where you live?

If you've got fire to make a change, then go for it. You just need a little flame, a little flame of desire for something better. What would your one world change be to make it better? How would you do it? Be brave and comment below with your ideas.

Taylor Swift - Blank Space / Love by Melanie Toye

Love

Written by Melanie Toye

To enjoy my reader experience, please turn on the music clip below and read my words to the music for the ultimate reader experience.



Love is awesome. People wonder why I believe so much in love and romance. It's because I love how it makes me feel.

Love comes in many forms, you can experience love and romance without being in a relationship. The emotion itself comes on rapidly and fully and leaves you breathless.

Love really is a whirlwind.

I love watching feel good movies that evoke romance, or peace or love. You just have to look around your world to see how love enters your every day. When somebody smiles at you, or when somebody you've been thinking of for a while, gives you a call out of the blue. Love is really the sweetness that trumps honey.

Have you experienced love today? What happened?

It might seem odd that I am writing about love to one of Taylor Swift's break-up songs. Yet sometimes, we need these types of songs, when we realise we forgive those who have hurt us and we can feel at peace that we have loved ourselves enough to be able to let them go. No more hurt needs to be felt. No more anger.

Only love is filled in your once taken space.

That's the great part of love, if you find it ever leaves you, it comes back to you in many different forms to gently remind you, it's here waiting for you. You just have to see it.

So it's with that dear friend that you have learned a little bit about love today and instead of running from it, accept it for what it is, which is, pretty awesome.

Rachel Platten - Fight Song

Don't let life pass you by

Written by Melanie Toye

Hello! I am excited to share with you my first ever reader experience, where I have combined my favourite songs playing in the background to my own written words. So press play, scroll down and read for a new experience that I hope you enjoy.

I want to tell you something, you are amazing. You can reach big heights. Whatever is facing you right now, whatever thoughts are running through your mind that are awful, cruel, self-loathing, it's time to break free. It's time to remember who you are. The real you. The amazing you. Filled with talents so great that you can change the world. Because you can. Everybody is born limitless.

You were born with a sense of innocence, a sense of adventure, a sense of living in the moment and you need to take that moment and embrace it with everything you have. Laugh freely, let joy rein in your life and live like waking up every day is the best thing that has happened to you.

Because today is your day. You are ready to take the reins of your life. You have been working towards this moment every day of your life. Time to live, my friend. Time to really live.

I wonder if you were someone else, someone richer, more famous, a different life that you are living now. Is that what you really want? Would that make your life better? More amazing? Or if you look at your life now, is it pretty good? 

Chase your dreams, it's important for your soul. Have confidence in yourself, in who you are, what you believe and what you can give. 

But never forget who you are. Whatever you are facing, you can overcome it, you will grow above it. You will find that you don't have to follow the herd, you can make your own destiny and never give up on your dreams. But you must fight for them. You must chase them. You must do what you can, because one day you will look back and say, I did everything I could, exhausted all avenues and guess what, I made it. I am here, where I spent years wanting to be, I never gave up, I made many mistakes and I had a ball. Life is amazing and I am lucky for the life I have lived. 

I am grateful that I let those harsh moments go, that I kept the faith, kept my focus and worked hard to make it. I am grateful that I trusted myself to know the way forward and even in the most darkest moments, I never gave up. 

Thank you for my very first time I have asked the reader to listen to a song while you read my words. This is how I write normally, I blast awesome music while I write about all things, any thing and everything. I wanted you to feel what I feel when I write. Excitement, peace, motivation, inspiration, joy and love. Watch this space for more to come!
