Mixed Up Words

March 20, 2019


Lost in the fire, I run through the trees, but you don't see me. I have scars that run deep, I haunt my own dreams in my sleep. I have fallen from the clouds and floated back up. I haven't forgotten the wounds that I have picked up. Often more than I remember BUT the scars still show. I may be brave. I will always try to save! I may smile, often faked but the negatives, off I try to shake. It is always take, the friendships I make. Often disappear, which bring back another tear. I write my words like my heart on the page, I only get wiser with age. The mic is on but blink and the moment has gone. I speak only of the truth and how I see, what fate has given me. Strengths to cherish, the goal to leave footprints before we perish. To live as we want, not as we are told. A life that is ours isn't the one in the shop we were sold. We pick up the broken pieces and wonder why? Why you cry? You can't deny, you try but often the pain comes in waves and pulls you under. The storms roll in and bring the thunder. For the weakness you see in me, if the weakness in you, you see. Pushing the blame around like lonely peas on your plate. I will never be late, I can't be with fate I always have a date. The twists and the turns, the endless amount of burns. Never one to learn, always pushing myself into the ground to feel the burn. Looking for love or a sign from above. That a purpose is here for me, there is a point to being me. The light is often dim, we are only human, of course we sin. In the end, the battle we must win. Come and dine with me, be who YOU want to be. Without ropes tying you down or worrying what others say around town. The here and now, you are on stage - take a bow. I have learnt that pain is inevitable and we can never be immune, from often feeling the gloom. The rainbows and the sun we must chase and run for, from the world we want so much more. Often in a daze, I spend my life in a haze. Looking for the codes to unlock the doors only to be led into a maze, it is one endless craze. I roll the dice, I often overthink and spend too long thinking twice. My loved ones cheer from the side, always there for the rollercoaster ride. The days that are dark, the days we need to reignite the spark. I am here, for when you feel like they all disappear. I see the pain, I see the strain. Life is tough and the challenges are rough. We run through the woods and face many tears that lead to floods. Our hearts are stolen, broken and are on the mend, in signs of trouble search from a friend. To you my hand I will always lend. Take the time, to hear the clocks chime. The time is now, you know how. How to pick up the pieces and face the world, as the girl you have fought hard to be. 


The real Sophie, that is me

Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN. 

Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
