A new First for Simon (A Blog) (31-October-2006)
This is the first blog post i ever made i’ve copied it directly from my myspace page.
Hey there everyone well theres a first for everything (Well everything that actuly happens) and tonight’s first is that im going to write a blog i dont know whats brought on this sudden idea mabey its procrastination mabey its life or maybe its just the way i feel or a combination of all of them. Now the hard part what am i actually going to write about maybe ill do this part when something inspiring comes to mind.
I know i could talk about my current song on this myspace thingo cos a few people have commented on it and how its made them feel. Its called Everything changes and is by Staind. On of the first things i noticed it is talking about is the way we interact with people and the small things we say and do in our life and the massive impact that these small words and events can have on the people around us i remember watching a facenating movie about this called the butterfly effect and how the smallest words and actions and events can totally change the way we think and feel and act something as small as the flap of a butterflys wing can cause a hurricane on the other side of the world. I know that personally a lot of this has been happening in my life as of late and how some realy small insignificant seeming things have changed my life and my perspective on stuff. And I think that realy we need to be so careful in what we see and do and think stuff through cos I think the moregood impacts we have on people and the less bad influences we are the better our lives will be and the better of the people around us will be. And I think theres been some good examples of such things in the news over the last week. Particularly what SHEIK Taj Din al-Hilali has said in the last week Sure he may have ment for his comments to be taken in a different view and in some parts I can kinda see where hes coming from but the end result is no matter how he wanted his words to be interpreted they were enterpreted completely differently and I believe that we have to be so careful with what we say and that it is said in a way that can only realy be interpreted in the way we want it to be.
I think the song realy explores these ideals in the first verse it says,
If you just walked away
What could I really say?
Would it matter anyway?
Would it change how you feel?
And it realy is quite a intresting thing to think about what may have happened had I said this not this but in the end what we say we say and what we do we do and as much as we can say sorry and ask for forgiveness we really cant change what we do and some of the impacts it has on other people that brings up another interesting topic mentioned in the song that of forgiveness
If you could learn to forgive me
Then I could learn to feel,
I think that this is a interesting point some times it takes being able to forgive someone before we can get over the hurt and pain that’s been caused and go back to living a normal life. Some times it takes forgiveness and to forgive before we are able to heal over wounds that have been caused by other people
In a awesome book called the bibe that I believe I don’t know if you do but this book says in 2 Corinthians 2:7
Now instead, you ought to forgive and comfort him, so that he will not be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow.
I know that I have found this so true in my life.
The other key theme is that of everything changes and I believe that it is so true so many different events and things people say to us and do make us change and bring change in us and these changes are what allows us to grow as people and depending on how we take the changes and run with them determines how and in what ways we grow as people and it is how we handle change that can either bring out the best or worst in us life changes it just happens and personally in my life ive found no matter how much life changes and what goes on there is one thing that stays constant in my life is the love that my god has for me although I cant necessarily always feel his love and understand what hes doing in my life infact sometimes even I have no idea and life gets realy hard but at the end of it all I see what god has done and how awesome its been and how its changed me for the good and one last verse from that book the bible.
A Time for Everything
1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
