Why Is Everything So Complicated?

I was sat backseat during a car ride today with my mother and my brother driving along the coast. The conversation between the two of them, where I merely gazed out the window and threw in my piece here and there, evolved into concepts, big words, challenging beliefs and criticism. This is not an uncommon transition for discussions to make between the members of my household.

The thing that most struck me about this interaction was the line "if you think these concepts aren't complicated you're daft" (I will not name names because I'm a lovely daughter and sister but if you guess correctly you'll win a prize). It really got me thinking how we choose whether a concept or a relationship or a state of being is going to be complicated or not. Like anything, if you give it a substantial amount of energy it will grow and if complications is what you think will happen, congratulations you're now a master manifester.

When understandings are short and comprehension is limited 'complicated' tends to be a popular label. Next time you consider something to be complicated make note of why that is and see if it's just because your insight on the issue is lacking. Then, to return it back to being straightforward, ask questions, stay curious and be open to discovering the essence of it and watch the complexity dissolve.

Like a rescue dog you'll only learn their personality if you spend time with them and once you know the ins and outs of their quirks they no longer confuse or perplex you. Same goes for issues you consider 'complicated'.

Life is not meant to be a challenge, nor is it meant to be complicated so get familiar with the unfamiliar and be okay knowing you don't know everything. Being human is chaotic enough without you trying to overthink everything.

The Start Of The Rest Of My Life

Welcome to my first ever post on my new blog The Resplendent Lioness!I have been working on many aspects of this blog for over the past week but to finally sit down and write my first is a very lovely feeling.
Only just recently have I recognised that as long as I can write I am deeply satisfied. I still crave intensely many MANY wonders, writing just gives my experience a sense of purpose that other loves just don't. The best way I can describe it is as if  I am the whole universe, writing is the sun, and my many other joys are planets and stars. All are important and make up the whole universe, this is key. Stars and new planets can be discovered but there is only one sun.  The complete source of warmth, bringing light to every part of me.
My desires to venture into the blogging world have only come about recently and suddenly but I believe in divine timing and this could not have entered my life at a more excellent time. I asked for a summer romance and I got handed a blog. My oh…

18 Life Changing Lessons I Learnt In 2018

Here we are again, the end of a book and this time it so happens to be the novel that was 2018. A lot occurred in the past 12 chapters and 365 pages and for all I find peace with and am grateful.
Moments have been filled with pleasure, some with agony, some with sadness, elation, shock, glee, gloom, mild insanity, only to name a few otherwise we'll be here for the whole of 2019 if I try to list all the adjectives I've felt recently. I actually really enjoy watching the pendulum swing every which way asking you ever so politely with a kick up the butt to keep and never stop progressing. So to sum it up my year was filled with a lot of butt kicking.
I used to HATE the thought of new years eve and even birthdays so much that I'd get emotionally and physically distressed about them. It meant that the clock kept ticking and chapters kept ending, a concept my little eleven year old self didn't want to have to accept. Ever. It's only been this year that I've embraced th…

The 10 Albums That Transcended In 2018

Albums and EPs that I listened to non-stop in 2018 and you should listen to too!My favourite 10 releases in 2018 that features artists you will immediately fall in love with.

I spend a decent amount of my time admiring the artistic expression of music. It is something that I hold very close and very, very dear to my heart. Along with writing, music brings the most indescribable and monumental feelings of pure elation and raw electricity.
My favourite genre of music is the kind that leaves me feeling like I just saw through space and time in the matter of minutes and now I know every secret to the universe... so basically I'll go for anything that makes me feel like I'm high.

2018 was a year of some spectacular breakthroughs in music from new artists entering the scene or familiar faces re-inventing what they have to offer. Now, more then ever you're bound to find someone somewhere on the globe making something to cater to your very specific likes. I can't guarantee you…
