Good morning,

Happy Sunday ๐Ÿ™‚

โ€œLive in the moment..!โ€ Last letter from the 27yr old dying woman, Holy Butcher.

โ€œLive in the moment..!โ€ Last letter from the 27yr old dying woman, Holy Butcher.

Thatโ€™s the thing about life;

It is fragile, precious and unpredictable

and each day is a gift, not a given right.

A bit of life advice from Hol:

Itโ€™s a strange thing to realise and accept your mortality at 26 years young. Itโ€™s just one of those things you ignore. The days tick by and you just expect they will keep on coming; Until the unexpected happens.

I always imagined myself growing old, wrinkled and grey- most likely caused by the beautiful family (lots of kiddies) I planned on building with the love of my life. I want that so bad it hurts.

Thatโ€™s the thing about life; It is fragile, precious and unpredictable and each day is a gift, not a given right.

Iโ€™m 27 now. I donโ€™t want to go. I love my life. I am happy.. I owe that to my loved ones. But the control is out of my hands.

I havenโ€™t started this โ€˜note before I dieโ€™ so that death is feared – I like the fact that we are mostly ignorant to itโ€™s inevitability.. Except when I want to talk about it and it is treated like a โ€˜tabooโ€™ topic that will never happen to any of us.. Thatโ€™s been a bit tough. I just want people to stop worrying so much about the small, meaningless stresses in life and try to remember that we all have the same fate after it all so do what you can to make your time feel worthy and great, minus the bullshit.

I have dropped lots of my thoughts below as I have had a lot of time to ponder life these last few months. Of course itโ€™s the middle of the night when these random things pop in my head most!

Those times you are whinging about ridiculous things (something I have noticed so much these past few months), just think about someone who is really facing a problem. Be grateful for your minor issue and get over it. Itโ€™s okay to acknowledge that something is annoying but try not to carry on about it and negatively effect other peopleโ€™s days.

Once you do that, get out there and take a freaking big breath of that fresh Aussie air deep in your lungs, look at how blue the sky is and how green the trees are; It is so beautiful. Think how lucky you are to be able to do just that – breathe.

It is so beautiful. Think how lucky you are to be able to do just that – breathe.

You might have got caught in bad traffic today, or had a bad sleep because your beautiful babies kept you awake, or your hairdresser cut your hair too short. Your new fake nails might have got a chip, your boobs are too small, or you have cellulite on your arse and your belly is wobbling.

Let all that shit go.. I swear you will not be thinking of those things when it is your turn to go. It is all SO insignificant when you look at life as a whole. Iโ€™m watching my body waste away right before my eyes with nothing I can do about it and all I wish for now is that I could have just one more Birthday or Christmas with my family, or just one more day with my partner and dog. Just one more.

I hear people complaining about how terrible work is or about how hard it is to exercise – Be grateful you are physically able to. Work and exercise may seem like such trivial things … until your body doesnโ€™t allow you to do either of them.

I tried to live a healthy life, in fact, that was probably my major passion. Appreciate your good health and functioning body- even if it isnโ€™t your ideal size. Look after it and embrace how amazing it is. Move it and nourish it with fresh food. Donโ€™t obsess over it.

Remember there are more aspects to good health than the physical body.. work just as hard on finding your mental, emotional and spiritual happiness too. That way you might realise just how insignificant and unimportant having this stupidly portrayed perfect social media body really is.. While on this topic, delete any account that pops up on your news feeds that gives you any sense of feeling shit about yourself. Friend or not.. Be ruthless for your own well-being.

Be grateful for each day you donโ€™t have pain and even the days where you are unwell with man flu, a sore back or a sprained ankle, accept it is shit but be thankful it isnโ€™t life threatening and will go away.

Whinge less, people! .. And help each other more.

Give, give, give. It is true that you gain more happiness doing things for others than doing them for yourself. I wish I did this more. Since I have been sick, I have met the most incredibly giving and kind people and been the receiver of the most thoughtful and loving words and support from my family, friends and strangers; More than I could I ever give in return. I will never forget this and will be forever grateful to all of these people.

It is a weird thing having money to spend at the end.. when youโ€™re dying. Itโ€™s not a time you go out and buy material things that you usually would, like a new dress. It makes you think how silly it is that we think it is worth spending so much money on new clothes and โ€˜thingsโ€™ in our lives.

Buy your friend something kind instead of another dress, beauty product or jewellery for that next wedding. 1. No-one cares if you wear the same thing twice 2. It feels good. Take them out for a meal, or better yet, cook them a meal. Shout their coffee. Give/ buy them a plant, a massage or a candle and tell them you love them when you give it to them.

Value other peopleโ€™s time. Donโ€™t keep them waiting because you are shit at being on time. Get ready earlier if you are one of those people and appreciate that your friends want to share their time with you, not sit by themselves, waiting on a mate. You will gain respect too! Amen sister.

This year, our family agreed to do no presents and despite the tree looking rather sad and empty (I nearly cracked Christmas Eve!), it was so nice because people didnโ€™t have the pressure of shopping and the effort went into writing a nice card for each other. Plus imagine my family trying to buy me a present knowing they would probably end up with it themselves.. strange! It might seem lame but those cards mean more to me than any impulse purchase could. Mind you, it was also easier to do in our house because we had no little kiddies there. Anyway, moral of the story- presents are not needed for a meaningful Christmas. Moving on.

Use your money on experiences.. Or at least donโ€™t miss out on experiences because you spent all your money on material shit.

Put in the effort to do that day trip to the beach you keep putting off. Dip your feet in the water and dig your toes in the sand. Wet your face with salt water.

Get amongst nature.

Try just enjoying and being in moments rather than capturing them through the screen of your phone.

Life isnโ€™t meant to be lived through a screen nor is it about getting the perfect photo.. enjoy the bloody moment, people! Stop trying to capture it for everyone else.

Random rhetorical question. Are those several hours you spend doing your hair and make up each day or to go out for one night really worth it? Iโ€™ve never understood this about females ๐Ÿค”.

Get up early sometimes and listen to the birds while you watch the beautiful colours the sun makes as it rises. Listen to music.. really listen. Music is therapy. Old is best.

Cuddle your dog. Far out, I will miss that.

Talk to your friends. Put down your phone. Are they doing okay?

Travel if itโ€™s your desire, donโ€™t if itโ€™s not.

Work to live, donโ€™t live to work.

Seriously, do what makes your heart feel happy.

Eat the cake. Zero guilt.

Say no to things you really donโ€™t want to do.

Donโ€™t feel pressured to do what other people might think is a fulfilling life.. you might want a mediocre life and that is so okay.

Tell your loved ones you love them every time you get the chance and love them with everything you have.

Also, remember if something is making you miserable, you do have the power to change it – in work or love or whatever it may be. Have the guts to change. You donโ€™t know how much time youโ€™ve got on this earth so donโ€™t waste it being miserable. I know that is said all the time but it couldnโ€™t be more true.

Anyway, thatโ€™s just this one young gals life advice. Take it or leave it, I donโ€™t mind!

Oh and one last thing, if you can, do a good deed for humanity (and myself) and start regularly donating blood. It will make you feel good with the added bonus of saving lives. I feel like it is something that is so overlooked considering every donation can save 3 lives! That is a massive impact each person can have and the process really is so simple.

Blood donation (more bags than I could keep up with counting) helped keep me alive for an extra year – a year I will be forever grateful that I got to spend it here on Earth with my family, friends and dog. A year I had some of the greatest times of my life.

..โ€™Til we meet again.

A sweeping, “magisterial” history of the Roman Empire from one of our foremost classicists shows why Rome remains “relevant to people many centuries later” (Atlantic).

Inย SPQR, an instant classic, Mary Beard narrates the history of Rome “with passion and without technical jargon” and demonstrates how “a slightly shabby Iron Age village” rose to become the “undisputed hegemon of the Mediterranean” (Wall Street Journal). Hailed by critics as animating “the grand sweep and the intimate details that bring the distant past vividly to life” (Economist) in a way that makes “your hair stand on end” (Christian Science Monitor) and spanning nearly a thousand years of history, this “highly informative, highly readable” (Dallas Morning News) work examines not just how we think of ancient Rome but challenges the comfortable historical perspectives that have existed for centuries. With its nuanced attention to class, democratic struggles, and the lives of entire groups of people omitted from the historical narrative for centuries,ย SPQRย will to shape our view of Roman history for decades to come.

Homo Deus by Yuval Harari

Homo Deus by Yuval Harari


Yuval Noah Harari, author of the critically-acclaimedย New York Timesย bestseller and international phenomenonย Sapiens, returns with an equally original, compelling, and provocative book, turning his focus toward humanityโ€™s future, and our quest to upgrade humans into gods.

Over the past century humankind has managed to do the impossible and rein in famine, plague, and war. This may seem hard to accept, but, as Harari explains in his trademark styleโ€”thorough, yet rivetingโ€”famine, plague and war have been transformed from incomprehensible and uncontrollable forces of nature into manageable challenges. For the first time ever, more people die from eating too much than from eating too little; more people die from old age than from infectious diseases; and more people commit suicide than are killed by soldiers, terrorists and criminals put together. The average American is a thousand times more likely to die from binging at McDonalds than from being blown up by Al Qaeda.

What then will replace famine, plague, and war at the top of the human agenda? As the self-made gods of planet earth, what destinies will we set ourselves, and which quests will we undertake?ย Homo Deusย explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first centuryโ€”from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? This is the next stage of evolution. This isย Homo Deus.

With the same insight and clarity that madeย Sapiensย an international hit and aย New York Timesbestseller, Harari maps out our future.

Malcolm X by Manning Marable

Malcolm X by Manning Marable

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for History, the definitive biography of Malcolm X.

Hailed as “a masterpiece” (San Francisco Chronicle), the late Manning Marable’s acclaimed biography of Malcolm X finally does justice to one of the most influential and controversial figures of twentieth-century American history. Filled with startling new information and shocking revelations,ย Malcolm Xย unfolds a sweeping story of race and class in America. Reaching into Malcolm’s troubled youth, it traces a path from his parents’ activism as followers of Marcus Garvey through his own work with the Nation of Islam and rise in the world of black nationalism, and culminates in the never-before-told true story of his assassination.ย Malcolm Xย is a stunning achievement, the definitive work on one of our greatest advocates for social change.

20170607 Chicago Typewriter_2

“An original writer is not who imitates nobody,

but one whom nobody can imitate.”

Franรงois-Renรฉ de Chateaubriand, quoted

Lately I’ve been following this new k-drama series, “Chicago Typewriter”. It’s a love triangle story between three writers from the past. This series became quite popular outside of Korea (like in Indonesia, Malaysia..etc) but wasn’t that successful in Korea.

The first few episodes didn’t really live up to my expectations, but I began to enjoy it more as the series progressed about halfway through. ๐Ÿ™‚ My favorite part of the drama was when Go Kyung-Pyo, the ghostwriter, recalled a phrase from “Laziness” by Charles Spurgeon, and courageously decided to finally reach out to his love, Im Soo Jung. I was not familiar with literary works of Spurgeon before, so it was nice to be introduced to a new writer.

Enjoy the music & these beautiful quotes from the “Chicago Typewriter”. ๐Ÿ™‚

“When roses bloom and the heart flutters

give me that smile of yours

If there is a song you must sing

then sing it now

for when your day draws to a close

it is already too late to sing.

Sing your song now”

– Yoo Jin Oh, quoted from Laziness by Charles Spurgeon

“If you think of something to do, then do it now

Today may be a clear day

But you do not know if you may see clouds tomorrow

Since yesterday is no longer yours, do it now

If you have a kind word to say, say it now

For you may not have tomorrow

The person you love wonโ€™t always be by your side

If you have something loving to say, say it now

If you wish to smile, then smile now

Do it now

Before your friend leaves you”

– Yoo Jin Oh, quoted from Spurgeon’s poem

“I have read a certain book; when I finished it, I closed it, put it back on the shelf in my libraryโ€” but there were certain words in that book which I cannot forget. They have penetrated so deeply into me that I cannot separate them from myself. Henceforth,ย I am no longer the one I was before I met them.”

-Andre Gide, quoted in Chicago Typewriter
