London

London is such an amazing place. The amounts of people, the buzz, the sigths, everything about it. Why would people want to harm such a great place? Being in London on saturday really made the bombings feel real - why do people want to harm such a great place?

I took Laura to london as part of her 21st bday present. We went to see a musical called Les Miserables. It was fabtastic - if you like music then you should definately go and see this. There was quite a good moral to part of the story at the start which I will try to explain. The story is about a man who was a thief who had just been released on parole. He was rejected by everyone, but there was one kind man that took him in. The man, whilst the people in the house were sleeping took the silverware on the table and ran. He was found by the police but the theif insisted that the stolen items had been given to him. When they took him to the kind man who took him in, the kind man just said - "you left in such a rush that you forgot to take these candle sticks that I gave you". Instead of sending him back to prison like he deserved he gave the man more than he deserved. The story then goes on and the man becomes a mayor etc.

But isn't that the way we should treat people? Instead of being harsh to the people who hurt us (in this case steal) should we give them more than they deserve in kindness? I think so and is a challenge to me. Anyway - London was an amazing day, probably mostly because of the company I had. Everyone should just go and see London cos its a great place.

Shaped by the Past

I've noticed how we all generally live lives shaped by our pasts. Do you think it is a good or a bad thing to be shaped by our past hurts. This is now me being completely honest - a couple of years ago, I loved a girl so much . . would have done anything for her. Then she broke my heart and treated me terribly. It is now at the stage 2 and a half years on, where she can't stand being anywhere near me (even though it was her that behaved badly and hurt me). For the last 2 and a half years I have been living scared of being hurt like that again.

It shapes my life still - I try and avoid comfrontation with this girl because of the hurt it will cause me. Not only that, it shapes the way I treat my friends, the way I am with Laura. The only peace I get from my hurt is from God. Is this the way forward to get through the hurts of our past. So I pose you the question should we allow ourselves to be shaped by our pasts? I don't want to be shaped by my past, I want to learn from my past and move on. What are your thoughts?
