Why Hope Should Be Your Constant Companion — January 17, 2020

Why Hope Should Be Your Constant Companion

Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.  ~Thich Nhat Hanh

A worthwhile goal is worthy of pursuing and when you do have a goal set,  it’s almost inevitable that at some point you’ll think that, this goal is too hard. It’s taking too long to be realised. I can’t do this! Why do I keep failing? Once you have done all the overthinking, relish in all the self-doubt comes the moment of reckoning. The moment to start dreaming again, that moment of hope resurfaces to breathe in you, new strength.

My Wish For You Is To Continue…… — January 12, 2020

My Wish For You Is To Continue……

My wish for you
Is that you continue


To be who and how you are
To astonish a mean world
With your acts of kindness


To allow humor to lighten the burden
Of your tender heart


In a society dark with cruelty
To let the people hear the grandeur
Of God in the peals of your laughter


To let your eloquence
Elevate the people to heights
They had only imagined


To remind the people that
Each is as good as the other
And that no one is beneath
Nor above you


To remember your own young years
And look with favor upon the lost
And the least and the lonely


To put the mantel of your protection
Around the bodies of
The young and defenseless


To take the hand of the despised
And diseased and walk proudly with them
In the high street
Some might see you and
Be encouraged to do likewise


To plant a public kiss of concern
On the cheek of the sick
And the aged and infirm
And count that as a
Natural action to be expected


To let gratitude be the pillow
Upon which you kneel to
Say your nightly prayer
And let faith be the bridge
You build to overcome evil
And welcome good


To ignore no vision
Which comes to enlarge your range
And increase your spirit


To dare to love deeply
And risk everything
For the good thing


To float
Happily in the sea of infinite substance
Which set aside riches for you
Before you had a name


And by doing so
You and your work
Will be able to continue

“Life has pounded me down and thrashed me around, time and time again but I always get right back up because I still love life -Just as the earth still loves the rain.”
~ Suzy Kassem

We are the third day into a new year and a new decade. Each year of the last decade has been challenging because they have forced me to make many changes in my life. Through the years I’ve found that while holding on meant that I was brave. By letting go of things that no longer served a purpose in my life, I found happiness, my worth as a person and most of all I found my strength to go after what I wanted. The past decade taught me a lot about myself and about my relationship with my family, friends, colleagues.

Are You Happy? — December 14, 2019

Are You Happy?

Photo Credit

Some people appear to be happy, but they simply don’t give the matter much thought. Others make plans: I’m going to have a husband, a home, two children, a house in the country. As long as they’re busy doing that, they’re like bulls looking for the bullfighter: they react instinctively, they blunder on, with no idea where the target is. They get their car, sometimes they even get a Ferrari, and they think that’s the meaning of life, and they never question it. Yet their eyes betray the sadness that even they don’t know they carry in their soul. Are you happy?

I Will Rise And Live For Myself! — November 30, 2019

I Will Rise And Live For Myself!


Sometimes you’re trying so hard to get your life together and still, it’s not enough, everything is falling apart. What to do, you’re asking. Just keep going through hell for yourself, not for everyone else. Richer with that wisdom, I will build my happiness from nothing. I will rise from the dust. And I will do it on my own. I will live for myself and I won’t look at the others.”
