Set Yourself Free


To wait on another is to give away your soul to another

To give over control to another is to pass away your faith to another

So take your control back, take your power back;

It’s the only way forward and there is no way back


Take action based on the best for all,

Not on where others may rise or fall

No matter how much it hurts, just do what is best

For there’s only one way forward and there’s no way back,


You have met with many a struggle before

Now you have the knowledge and you know this way forward

All is new and welcome in this place

All you have to do is choose this true way


Know what it’s like to be in that zone

To be all you can, with all that you know

To own your own life and not be owned by another

You have all you need within you you see; all that you need to now set you free


So choose this higher and equal way, choose the way you want to face

The choice is yours and yours alone

Don’t wait on another to show you this way

We are in control when we choose to be, so take that step now; it will set you free

~ M. L. Adams

A promise

It can be hard to let go

When its become all you know,

When the feeling’s become so strong

That you’ve held on for far too long

Then you realise it’s all a test

So you can really be at your best,

So you can beat all that tries to mistreat you,

Then nothing more can ever defeat you

So when this pattern is finally broken,

It is a promise it will all be forsaken

~ M.L.Adams

Real Beauty

Listen and look,

Beauty is everywhere

This is what’s real

Just listen, look and feel

Use all your senses

To see what is true and real

Beauty is within and around you,

Its everywhere just waiting

For you to listen to look and to feel

Don’t hide or be afraid

From what is true and beautiful and real

Just open your heart and mind

Its within and all around you,

Just listen, look and feel

~ M.L.Adams

One little moment , one transformational year


With some journeys its hard to know where to start but it always begins somewhere, just in one moment. That one moment leads to many , many more (the butterfly effect). These moments whether we view them as positive or negative are always magnificent. One moment and one life leads to much more, nothing is ever insignificant.

This year is one I would describe as magnificent in itself , this year for me has been really a transformation, one that began in Autumn last year, a time of letting go of old and in with new. This is how it began and from one tiny little moment it has led to massive growth in my life. Just like a tiny seed that can grow in to an amazing beautiful flower, that is what one little moment in my life did when nurtured and encouraged on the path of growth.

From making a decision in one moment to begin my own business to then going to a life changing seminar where I met amazing people, each has been a step on an amazing growing journey that in one year has been like a lifetime of lessons all of which have been transformational, not all easy though. I’m not sure if any transformational steps in life ever are easy, but one thing I know is it always leads to something higher or better if that is what you are seeking. All it takes is one intention or one decision and from there your whole life transforms, when I think about it now , it amazes me how much so.

I sought wealth and I found freedom, freedom in myself, freedom in expression, freedom in the heart and now I know that to me this is what wealth really represents. Material wealth is also important but true freedom is what deep down I was seeking. Now that I have found it every other path is also open. My life has expanded all from one decision, one opportunity , one transformational relationship and a million tiny changes in between. As Tony Robbins states,

‘ It’s in the moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.’

This change can sometimes manifest physically but more powerfully and more importantly is the inner change and transformation from these tiny decisions , they can be truly life changing and really are. Which way these decisions lead us can contain many variables but the cause lies within and everything will then come at the right moment even if it is not what you think you need at the time, all things are on the path of growth. You may often get what you need rather than what you think you want, something that is far more powerful and life changing, that which your inner soul is calling for.

My belief through this experience is that for a decision to be truly transformational it needs to be one that is at least slightly out of your comfort zone, a bit scary. If not there is in reality no room for the unknown, no room for growth. My encouragement in this would be take a step every day however little , go for those decisions you’ve been wanting to take but putting off, because once you take that step each one after follows on the path to where you want to go in your heart and your courage builds each time to the point where you’ll make those decisions without questioning them.

The path of transformational growth is I believe the highest path of all, the gifts you may seek can often be sought no other way. We are all growing as part of nature but we can also choose our path, so why not choose a higher one. Step out your comfort zone today, take that beautiful journey, it may be tough at points but it will be amazing and worth it.

For this years life changing growing journey I’m immensely grateful to all who have been a part and also for taking those initial steps, ones I plan to take many more of. To finish, a little poem below on the power of one, hope you enjoy. Wishing you lots of life changing moments today and everyday.

The power of one

One word, one day

One moment, one life

That’s all it takes

A new start, a complete change

From one time, that’s all it takes

One moment , one change

One time, one life

All change can happen

From this one time

Never give up , life’s for living

It  only takes one moment, Just one thing

One moment , one time

All change can happen from here on in

~ M.L.Adams

Begin Again

Begin again

You can’t unlearn what is learnt

Or undo what is done,

Every path is a lesson

To what you can become,

Find the power in every path

Then begin again once more,

To be far stronger and better

Than you ever were before

~ M.L.Adams

For anyone going through a tough time in any way, be strong as you know you are:)

Be True to You

Trust in yourself , be true to what you know

In what is right for your life

On who you are and where to go

Listen within, trust and show that you know

In how far you can go and what it is you need to show

Open up your heart and world by listening from within

It’s from there where your life can really begin

It is there where the answers lie

Only there within

Looking outside your life will not lead you right

As others will only see you through their own eyes

Show to all what it is that you can really do

Do that which  is really right and really true for you

Only then will you really know how to bring to life

That which is your true power from within your own life

~ M.L.Adams

Your Soul


I feel, I know

I feel, you know

I feel your soul

I see, I grow

I see your soul

I see, you know

You feel it too

I know you do

My soul is lost to you

~ M.L.Adams

This poem is written for someone who I feel close to on a very deep level, this experience was also what led me to begin writing poetry, as it was easier to express in this way. Some experiences in life can be difficult and hard to understand, but each experience always has a lesson or gift within it. This experience has taught me that some things just can’t be intellectualized, only experienced.

As Helen Keller said;

‘The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.’

New Beginnings

New beginning

So many changes, so many lives

Always beginning and ending like day and night

How do I approach each time and each one

With a fresh new mind like I’ve just begun

Letting go of the old and in with the new

With no expectations or just maybe a few

Each experience brings new learning and insight

If I just listen to my heart then I know It’ll be alright

Each new time brings new love and light

There is no need to fight because each time leads to something right.

And so I will choose to lead a life that will shine forever bright.
