One fairytale that really got to me as a kid was The Ugly Duckling. The story tells of a homely little bird born in a barnyard. It suffers abuse from the others around him until, much to his delight and to the surprise of the others, he matures into a beautiful swan. To see someone being treated badly because they were different, was utsetting. And to see someone noone believed in turn into a beautiful swan, was satisfying. So why did this fairytale reach my little heart? I believe it was because I could see some of the same happening around me. In my little village, in my little country, in my little world. People treated badly because they were different and people who noone believed in turning into ‘beautiful swans’. The Ugly Duckling was lucky. His story ended well. In real life some stories end well, but some don’t. To not believe in someone, not respect them or treat them well can change someone’s story. Let’s try to change the stories for those around us for the better. Be kind. #fairytale#swan#story#change#believe#thoughts#reflection#notetoself#singersongwriter#songwriter#musician#performer#topliner#nordic#uk#instastyle#swan#nature#hcandersen#life#smile#bekind
6am; I've been invited to a temple. They wake at 4:30am everyday. Update - I've never experienced something so pure in my life.

I was a loner most of my life, kept to myself quiet type. Then I got depressed, not knowing what to do with myself and seeing how the world was corrupt. It wasn't until I figured out myself that I was able to come out of my shell. I had been playing music my whole life so it was obvious my life path was to follow that. Since then I've travelled and moved cities. I've experienced more in the past 3 years then I have in my entire existence and loved life. If you're stuck it's something within you, that only you can change. Be alone, meditate on it. Really try and figure out what's going on inside yourself. Only then can you move forward.

a very interesting concept in the hindu religion - moksha - it means to be liberated from this material world to another kind of existence. An existence without decay, without pain. An existence of purity and bliss. But the only way to get there is to first purity yourself. No drugs, no alcohol, no illicit sex, no gambling, sleep properly, eat properly and to understand spiritual knowledge. And also to understand that all of creation must come from a source. 🖤

I spent so many years hating myself just to find out it took me nowhere. I know it's hard to get out of it once you're in it. But you need to focus on what you want to do while you're here on this planet. Focus on being healthy. Get sleep, eat well, drink hella water. Then your mind will be clearer as to what you should do.
