Sixty Seconds

If you knew you had only sixty seconds left to live, what would you do? What would you think about?
Would you think about all those people you loved? All those who cared for you? All those who made a positive difference? All those who supported you, those who made you strong? How about all those who stayed or all those you lost along the way?
Would you look over your life? Would you see the times when you laughed, the times you cried? Would you see the times you said hello to new faces or goodbye to the old? Would you see the goals you achieved, the dreams you reached? Would you see any regrets you wished you could change, or would just keep it all the same?
If you knew you had only sixty seconds left to live, would you think about? What would you do?  Would you scream? Would you weep? Would you say your goodbyes for the very last time? Or would you, just that for one moment, accept it?
The truth is no one really knows. Well, not until those sixty seconds actually arrive.

New Year’s Resolutions (2015)

New Year’s Resolutions (2015)

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you are having a fantastic 2015 so far and it goes on to be a great year for you all.

It’s the ninth day of the 2015 so I've had a lot of time to think about this blog post. In the past I haven’t really set myself any proper New Year’s Resolutions. Perhaps it’s because I never thought I would be able to achieve them with much success or if I did set some they would not be very meaningful.

This year is going to be different. I’m going to give it a go. So here are my resolutions for 2015. What are yours?

Developing ‘Jake Borrett’s Writing Blog’
Without your continual brilliant support ‘Jake Borrett’s Writing Blog’ would not really exist. The blog has been running since Friday 28th February 2014 and so far it is had nearly 20,000 views, which is amazing. This is down to you.

With this in mind it is only right for the blog to continually improve. So one of my resolutions this year is to make the blog a more attractive and interactive place to visit. This will mean more features more videos will be found here. I guess I have been put off making videos for confidence issues but don’t worry there will be more in the upcoming months. There may even be a few surprises along the way.

So make sure you stay in touch.

Raising Tons of Awareness
One of the main reasons for setting up this blog is to raise tons of awareness. I wish one day many people will familiar with or have a greater understanding of what Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and Dyspraxia are and how they affect people in everyday life. You or someone close to you may be suffering from any of these conditions. I want to show you may support by raising awareness across the web.  

Asides from the blog, I will be trying get more involved with the many of the amazing charities and foundations helping thousands of people every day. They may be helping you this very moment. The volunteers are doing a fantastic job so I would to thank them in some way.

Skydiving in the Clouds  
Now I have been saying this for many years that I would like to a tandem skydive. It started in 2009 when my dad completed a tandem skydive for Multiple Sclerosis. Even though he said he wouldn’t do it again, he also said it was an unforgettable experience. It was a wonderful thing he did for charity. Hopefully this year I will have the courage to do a tandem skydive of my own. You may even see a video of it.

Other Bits and Bobs
There are hundreds of New Year’s Resolutions to choose from. You could learn to play an instrument, learn to drive, take part in a flash mob or travel to Japan. Ultimately you should do things that make you happy. So I am going to do one thing every day that makes me smile.


Thank you for reading the first blog post of 2015. You are brilliant. Lots more content will be published in the near future. Until then have an extra fun weekend and good luck with your own resolutions.
