When inspiration strikes...

I only wrote one blog last year, pitiful really for someone who considers themselves a writer, but then again, I either haven't been wel...

Blogging, for the hell of it...

So I thought I'd write another blog, despite only writing one last week. A friend told me last night that they enjoy reading my blog, but one criticism is that I don't write it regularly, and suggested I try it once a week (he puts me to shame as he writes his most days).

They also said I should stop apologising about my blog being a personal or "dear diary..." blog, as personal blogs are always the best ones (I guess like being given permission to read someones diary?)

My blog/journal/diary/notebook...whatever you want to call it, will always be about life and what goes on in my world. The past five years have seen me ill, to better, doing something with my life, and repeat. I've pretty much come to terms with having MS, and it is just a part of life now. I'm used to the injections, the side effects of said injections, being tired, and sometimes having a crap short-term memory - if I never get used to it, I'll be constantly fed up, and as I was suddenly reminded recently, life really is too fucking short!

I have had a good excuse of not being able to go out and keep in touch with many people, as I have spent a lot of time being exhausted & in bed, but now I know how to handle my condition, I need to get used to living life again (rather than surviving as I mentioned last time).

I had a wake up call very recently, as an old friend I hadn't seen in a while sadly and suddenly passed away. They were a person who always sought to get the most fun from life, as well as being one of the nicest, genuine people who I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. After reading an old Facebook conversation of ours from a couple of years ago, where I mentioned I had flu and couldn't get out of bed, he mentioned that he had the remnants of flu too, despite him being invincible. I said "I thought I was invincible too, but apparently not." It bought a tear to my eye, then I realised, if you live life with no fear, that's how you'll live it the fullest.

Anyway, so a band is on the cards, I have a bassist and myself as singer/guitarist, so I just need a drummer - which is easier said than done, even in Brighton. I've even got out of my weekday trap of staying in "coz I have work tomorrow," and have socialised during the week a bit more which helps.

Well, a blog with no meaning at the beginning seems to have had a point. Live life, rather than just purely survive, and have no regrets. Now, on that note, I'm off.

Ciao xoxo

This blog is dedicated to those family & friends I've loved and lost over the years. You will live on in cherished memories & photos (if I was savvy enough to take them in some cases). You'll be loved, missed & admired, but never forgotten. See you on the other side one day...
