Everything Imagined Began With A Dream — July 19, 2020

Everything Imagined Began With A Dream

 

everything-imagine-began-with-a-dream

You have the power to shape your life the way you want it to be. Every thought, every word, every action guides you with a purpose. And that purpose is to fulfil your destiny. Some may say you’re just a dreamer. But everything imagined began with a dream.

The Colour of Racism — July 10, 2020

The Colour of Racism

Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future, and renders the present inaccessible. ~ Maya Angelou

Racism is learned behaviour no one is born a racist and for whatever reason, some people cling to it like they do religion, maybe it makes them feel safe. Maybe it makes them feel superior in some way. I’ve had people say to me, “Oh I’m not racist” yet they clutch their purse just a bit closer whenever a person of colour gets on the same elevator as them or they move a few rows down when a Muslim gets on the same bus. WE all have our own unconscious biases some more extreme than others but they’re undeniably there.

Reverting To A Conscious Way Of Living — June 12, 2020

Reverting To A Conscious Way Of Living

growth-gratitude-abundance

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”
~ Henri Nouwen

Today I am in deep reflection on how drastically life has changed in the past few months. The world is realigning, we are being forced to revert to a more simpler, gentler, and conscious way of living.

Recognizing The Endless Opportunities Life Presents Us — May 8, 2020

Recognizing The Endless Opportunities Life Presents Us

recognising-endless-possibilities

“So many things are possible as long as you don’t know they are impossible.” “Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.” “Turn your obstacles into opportunities and your problems into possibilities.”

This poem was posted in a group I’m in, it speaks about the world which offers many levels to us while revealing our inner selves. There is still 24hours in the day and though a lot of us are currently going racing into work each day, our days are still pretty much brimming over with things to do. For me, life is the same as it has always been if one thing stops, there’s always something else starting.

Staying Sane In A World On The Edge Of Insanity — April 24, 2020

Staying Sane In A World On The Edge Of Insanity

 

Bluebell 2

“When you are joyful, when you say yes to life and have fun and project positivity all around you, you become a sun in the center of every constellation, and people want to be near you.”
~Shannon L. Alder

For the past few weeks, we’ve all be inundated with the Coronavirus. We’ve chatted about it with Family and Friends, we’re still keeping in touch with. I must confess, there have been times I felt myself on that brink of a meltdown, it’s not the staying home part that’s pushing me to the edge. It’s all the paranoia surrounding the pandemic, people are really letting their fear get the most of them. It’s not being able to do something as simple as grocery shopping. It’s the constant battle to remain sane when the world seems to be on the edge of insanity right now.

How Creating A Rainbow Mindset Can Change Your Life — April 17, 2020

How Creating A Rainbow Mindset Can Change Your Life

Rainbows are full of love, peace, dreams & hopes.
~Anthony T.Hincks

Looking around my neighbourhood I can see many photos and handpainted posters of Rainbows stuck to windows, a wonderful tribute to all the hardworking men and woman of our  National Health Service.  Rainbows are a symbol of peace and a promise that all will be well.  They’re often visible after a storm when that first light breaks through those dark clouds signifying that the storm is over.  They may have a different meaning to different people, some folklore says there’s a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, some see rainbows the same way they see shooting stars, cross your fingers, make a wish and that wish will come true but for the most part, rainbows are a symbol of hope!

Why Your Problems Are Designed Specifically For You! — April 11, 2020

Why Your Problems Are Designed Specifically For You!

“It’s easy to complain about your life – how tough it is, how unfair it is, how stressful it is, how everyone else has it much better. But if you step into the life of someone you envy for just a day, you’ll discover that everyone has their own problems, and they’re usually worse than yours. Because your problems are designed specifically for you, with the specific purpose of helping you grow.”

“Be thankful for everything that happens in your life; it’s all an experience.”
~Roy T. Bennett

Like most of you reading this right now, I’m in lockdown. While I value the time I get to spend with my family, I worry about my family who is not with me and my friends who are currently still working. The hours have melted into days, days into weeks and before you know it weeks will melt into months.  As you transition your lives to accommodate the changes set before you, you should not allow yourself to become overwhelmed by the feeling of fear!  Rather invite that of gratitude!
