Be Love.

Love makes the world go round.  Love is the answer.  Love over everything.  I believe this more than anything.  However, I find it harder to put in place than it sounds.

I was always taught to treat people how you want to be treated, but there are times in life where you want to treat others how you think they deserve!  I struggle between this, and being Love.  

Love wants us to treat each other as equals; to be rational, to be wise, to be caring, thoughtful, empathetic. 
As humans we want to retaliate.  To harm.  To always be right.  Everything Love is not.

Personally, I have to remind myself to act with Love in testing situations.  If I feel someone is wrong/ putting me down, it becomes important to me to prove I am right- to have that person come around to my way of thinking.  If am in a dispute with a friend and they refuse to communicate with me, eventually when that person comes around, my first instinct is to disregard them like they did me.  

But what does that then say about me?  Does it solve the conflict or exacerbate things? What I can tell you, is behaving in that way, stooping to that persons level, makes me feel crap. Like I have sold myself short; I know I am better than that behaviour, and it is definitely not in my nature.  Love is in my heart so I should act like it.

That teaches me, I should have acted with love.

And I will tell you this, the people who act without Love are the ones who need it the most,  The most angry, aggressive, hateful people need love.  Love is the remedy for all the negative.  The hatred, the evil.

Be love.

(And it seems all of my best lessons are learn from hindsight.  How ironic.)

The Book of You - A review

The Book of You, is a creepy thriller about Clarissa and her colleague Rafe.  Rafe is obsessed with Clarissa.  He turns up wherever she is.  He  sends her letters.  He involves himself in her life.  He is relentless.

Clarissa is selected for jury service where she thinks she will be able to evade Rafe.  Hearing the victim stand in court telling a tale of sadism and abuse, Clarissa starts to compare her life to that of the victim and realises her situation with Rafe can only end badly.

I picked up this book in Wh Smith, because the sinister cover caught my eye, and I'm always intrigued by a book part of the Richard and Judy Book Club.

Immediately, the story had me hooked.  The intensity of Clarissa's situation is made known from the first page.  I felt compelled to read on and find out how the situation would end.  Personally, I was disappointed with the ending as I felt it finished to abruptly.  I am a person who likes closure from a book; whether it ends badly or well, and I didn't get that from this book!

I would give it 4/5 stars.  Had the ending been different, it would have been 5.

I have a profile on Good Reads, so lets connect!  You can find my profile here.


Happy Tuesday All!!

I have let time get away from me lately and my blog has felt the effects.  It can be challenging, trying to balance home life, long hours at work and study, but I am going to give it a go!

When I am a way from the blog I feel like something is missing from my life.  I have been dedicating time to it for nearly a year now, so it has definitely become a part of my life.  The joys of blogging! The 1 year blogiversary of The Randomness of Unicorns will see me host a giveaway, so stay tuned for that next month.

I want to thank everyone who still drops my place, even through my absence, and those of you who are still patiently waiting for another morsel of Unicorn love; it means the world to me <3

Have a wonderful day no matter what you are doing.  Enjoy special moments and eat cake should the occasion arrive....more importantly- HAPPY PANCAKE DAY!!

Much love, Peachy xxxx
