You may not have had a good start in life but you can sure make it end well.
Don’t let your circumstances define you.
Laugh on purpose.
Be around people with a sense of humour.
Worry never solved anything.
We all need a sense of humour.
Calm down and cheer up.
You will have tribulations in your life but cheer up as worrying over them won’t make it better.
Laugh at yourself.
When your mood sinks then take time to talk to yourself and look at your blessings in your life.
If you make enough “noise” you can “scare” away your depression.
Enjoy the life that was given to you.
Let the joy inside you be greater than the sadness inside you.
Live your life abundantly.
God knitted you together in your Mother’s Womb and He does not make junk…. He made you in His perfect image.
It is your soul that counts not the flesh of your body.
A beautiful Soul makes a Beautiful person.
How many of us really take note of all the complaining that we do every day, every hour, and every minute of the day.
We complain about the weather….. It is either too hot or too cold, too wet or too dry. We complain about the economy, about our children, about our fellow neighbours, the car is too dirty, tired of cleaning the house, after the children, after the pets…… The list can go on and on and on.
We even complain about ourselves….. We are to fat, too thin, to old, to young, to grey, to stupid, to eager….. Etc.
Maybe you should do a complaint fasting….. You know, when you feel a complaint edging towards your mouth or thought put a halt to it. Stop the complaints and rather try and turn the complaint into a blessing or a turnabout…. Turn the complaint into something good instead.
Try to find the good instead of the negative. Try it for a week and see what happens in your life. You will find yourself more positive, smiling more and generally you will have a more “feel good” experience of life.
As the old saying goes…….Life is too short. Less complaining is good, more positive vibes need to go out into the Universe. Let it bounce off you onto the next person….. Cause a ripple effect into the world around you.
So I am laying down a challenge to you out there, especially to the avid complainers……… Try the complaint fasting for a week and let me know how it went.
I am going to do it…….
A gift called Life
As we get older we tend to be a tad more philosophical I think. Well, I seem to be, anyway. I tend to look back at my life and see how the threads of all the trials and tribulations, all the meetings and events seems to all collide at a central end point. All the lessons learnt through it all. All the wisdom that I can depart onto my children and to those who want to listen and learn by my mistakes and take the shortcut through theirs.
Life is about the messy bits in life. I like to think that life would be extremely boring and bland if we didn’t have it.
Would I change anything in my life? Maybe just one or two things but on the whole I would not change anything. I wouldn’t be the person I am today. I wouldn’t have all the knowledge, wisdom and empathy that I have now.
Life is exciting with all its knocks. To look back and see the reason behind all the trials and tribulations is amazing. Not nice to go through it at the time but it makes us stronger should we allow it to.
I start each day with a “thank you” to our Creator for allowing me another day.
Life is a blessing, a gift and we must never forget it.
In the beginning God made woman from man, He took a part of the man’s rib and fashioned her and saw that it was good.
Man is made up of pure logic and physical strength, he was made to be the provider, the protector of the woman, the protector of Life.
Now a woman is made up of the pure emotion side of life, she is a complex person, she is the one who has so many roles in life. She is a nurturer of life, she is the protector of life, she is also a provider of life, she is the comforter, the nurse, the educator and so much more.
She will always put those she loves first in her life.
She is full of wonder and light.
She is a mystery to Man.
She is Life.
You only have one life.
Do you want to live it true to yourself?

The world is full of wants and needs. What we want and what we need are two different things.
The definition of a need would be defined as goods or services that are required. This would include the needs for food, clothing, shelter and health care.
The definition of a Want are goods or services that are not necessary but that we desire or wish for.
Sometimes it is very hard to distinguish between the two and sometimes it is so hard to choose between the two. How many of us have had to give a sigh and weight up the costs of choosing between a want and a need…..
Sometimes we just need a Want and crave it but deep inside we know we cannot afford it but just bulldoze ahead and get it anyway only to regret it later on when we realise how selfish we have been or do we?
How many of you out there have that dilemma?
How many of you have that constant battle between doing the right thing and going towards the Needs in life or throw caution to the wind and head on down the Wants alley?
Wants and Needs……. The battle is real and lives on……
This is a short poem I wrote a good while back when I was feeling trapped and alone…..
Lost and alone
Fighting for sanity
Crawling to safety
Need to cry
Need to fly
Bright and high
Need to go
Need to shout
Need to scream
Need to GO
