Funny old thing, life...

A good friend's coming to stay today and while I was sat here painting my nails and planning our fun day out I started thinking about how unpredictable life is. 

We met at college, studying Fashion 3 years ago and formed such a good friendship but as we both live and study in different cities we make sure we find time in our busy lives to meet up. The last time she came down for a good catch up was last Summer, and how much has changed since. 

That's the funny thing about life, no matter how much we plan and prepare, we'll never know what's around the corner and what's to come . Take each day, live for the moment but keep the future in mind. For only we know where we have come from and only we'll determine where we'll end up. 

Friendship's a rare gift and once we find those special bonds we need to keep hold of them and ensure life's twists and turns don't place obstacles in the way and let friendship's pass you by, or fly off in the wind...

This reminds me of one of my favourite poems by Charles Hanson Towne which tells the tale only too well of what happens so often, however I will try my hardest not for it to apply to me. 

Around the corner I have a friend,

In this great city that has no end,
Yet the days go by and weeks rush on,
And before I know it, a year is gone.

And I never see my old friends face,
For life is a swift and terrible race,
He knows I like him just as well,
As in the days when I rang his bell.

And he rang mine but we were younger then,
And now we are busy, tired men.
Tired of playing a foolish game,
Tired of trying to make a name.

"Tomorrow" I say! "I will call on Jim
Just to show that I'm thinking of him",
But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes,
And distance between us grows and grows.

Around the corner, yet miles away,
"Here's a telegram sir," "Jim died today."
And that's what we get and deserve in the end.
Around the corner, a vanished friend.

...Written in 1900! Wow. & to think how much has truly changed in this world we live in, since then.

You'd be nowhere without your dreams...

Wow, & I'm finally writing my first post !

I've been meaning to create my blog for a while now I just never found the time, or made the time . That's all it comes down to after all, making time . I'm one of many that use that phrase all too often, "I don't have the time!" - How dare we say such things, life is way too short .

We only have one life and we can only live it for ourselves, therefore it is down to us and only us to value it and make the most of it .  Not just follow your dreams, but get up & chase them! So here is my vow to delegate time to the important things in life  . Starting with my Blog .

Love, Fashion, Life is my chance to put myself on the map, get my foot in the door & to reach out to you, the world . I love to write as you can tell I babble on, however I will promise not to ramble excessively . I will keep you all updated with the goings on in my mind from Love - as that is truly what makes the world go round, Fashion - my passion & at the source of everything . . . As well as anything else that goes on in this unpredictable path we call Life .

Your Love, Fashion & Life guru . . .
