Goodbye October

Extraordinary People And The Lives They Touch!

It’s been a few months since I’ve done any blogging, in those months I reflected on whether or not I should keep my blog going.  I’m now working from home, having both daughters at home during that time after all Universities here went from Face2Face to online studies didn’t help much because when I wasn’t working a huge chunk of my time was spent, proofing, editing and assisting them in research, which left very little time to do anything else. The WordPress upgrade didn’t help much either because it meant having to work my way through learning the new set up. The initial purpose of this blog was to help motivate me to write more, however, in the past few years, I haven’t written much, except for my books, which I’m still plodding through, and a few bits of poetry, here and there. But over the years my blog grew into something beyond being a motivational tool into a space where others also found motivation, inspiration and reflection as more and more people started following my blog, many of whom have reached out to me at some point to say how much they enjoy my blog. I appreciate you!!

Clearing out my inbox and going through a few of those emails made me realize that this blog was not just about me. It’s also about the people who take time out of their day to read what I have to say and hopefully what you read resonates you in someway. So many times we go through life without a second thought about anything or anyone who are not in front of us, we ignore the unseen and at times forget that the world exists outside of the bubble we’ve created for ourselves. During the busyness of the past few weeks, I was reminded that the people who cross our paths, whether virtually or real life are by their own rights, extraordinary. Those extraordinary people can do and say extraordinary things that can have a drastic effect not only on their own lives but also the lives of those they’ve touched.  To anyone reading this right now, you are extraordinary and I appreciate you! I may drop off the radar now and then but I am still here, reading your blogs and your comments.

“It’s the people we hardly know, and not our closest friends, who will improve our lives most dramatically”
~Meg Jay

The more mature I become the less gregarious my nature. My inner circle has become smaller but more meaningful, a few years ago it struck me that there were many people in my life who were simply just along for the ride. They brought nothing to the table and when they walked away they took more than necessary. We all know those people, the ones who always need a favour but is never available to return one.

Trouble Sharing To Facebook

Is anyone else having issues posting their blogs to Facebook or Twitter?

This is the message popping up when trying to share anything from my website to Facebook

I’m also having issues connecting my Twitter account to Facebook as none of my posts from there are being shared. I’ve tried disconnecting and reconnecting account. Posting directly to Facebook (copy/ pasting link). Nothing seems to work.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Meaningful Monday-How The World Is Changing Around Us

planet-earth-the-world

Most of us haven’t quite realized there is something extraordinary happening.

A few months ago, I freed myself from standard-procedure society. I broke the chains of fear that kept me locked up into the system. Since then, I see the world from a different perspective: the one that everything is going through change and that most of us are unaware of that.
