The Thirst of Life

smiley-1041796__340

Some of us thirst for knowledge, love, happiness, companionship and understanding.

However, no matter how hard some of us try we can’t help but feel unfulfilled or lacking.

How do we overcome that feeling of frustration and loneliness?

   1.  Seek knowledge and wisdom as this would help widen our perspective.

2.  Be purposeful in creating our own happy moments. This would help encourage us to
live our lives to the fullest and would attract positive people and energies to us.

  3. Develop our understanding as this would foster within us greater patience and
compassion.

 4. Cherish your life and the lives of those around you. Express this through your                     gratitude of both the big and small either in words and or by your actions

5. Get excited about the victory you WILL have over the obstacles in your life.

As you go about your day remember, be thirsty – not just for water to nourish your body but quench that thirst for life, knowledge, happiness and understanding.

Cherish the people who you hold close to your heart and be mindful that they probably thirst for something too.

To be truly happy in this life we need to understand our thirst and find healthy non-destructive ways of quenching it.

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day. 🙂

Reflection

esthwaite-2955765_960_720

The mirror shows the reflection of what is before it but the heart is a reflection of what is inside it.

What do you present in you reflection – love, loss, hurt, pain, shame, guilt, anger, joy?

Whatever, you’re struggling with know that we all have something to work through.

Through reflection hopefully, we’ll learn that our experiences help shape who we ARE but they don’t DEFINE  who we are.

Music Reflection Mondays #22 – Relaxation Tips

Welcome back to Music Reflection Mondays!  I hope all is well with each of you.

We all know Monday is the start of the work week and for many it could be a very taxing day.  The good news is, at the end of it all we have an opportunity to unwind, clear our minds from the all the stress and issues of the day.  It’s almost like pressing the reset button to refresh your mind. 🙂

Pondering on everything that went wrong during the day would only further stress you out and could even trigger a headache maybe even loss of appetite.  We don’t want that! How we go about releasing that tension and clearing a path in our minds so we can actually de-stress and start tomorrow with fresh eyes and a cool and clear mind is critical.

There are many things you can do but not everything will work for everyone and some techniques are more effective on some people than others.  Some relaxation tips include:

  • Long bath with soothing music
  • Listen to music on your way home
  • Exercise while listening to music
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Art therapy – getting in touch with your creative side can do wonders for relieving stress and increasing your happiness.
  • Dancing
  • Aromatherapy
  • Yoga
  • Deep slow breaths
  • A visit to the spa for some pampering 🙂
  • Getting adequate sleep is crucial
  • Talk about what’s troubling you – it’s healthier for you to share your thoughts and feelings than to have it bottled up inside.  If you don’t the pressure will continue to build until your mind and body can’t take it anymore and negatively releases it. I pity the poor soul who walks into that hurricane.

Try the different options until you find something that works for you.  It is easy to say “leave work at work” but when stuff happens that leaves you emotionally charged long after work it is easier said than done.

I have found that getting my mind and body into the music I’m listening to helps me clear my mind and it works for non-work related issues as well.  I sing along and that takes my mind off whatever is bothering me. A long shower, an occasional spa visit, aromatherapy,  a good night’s sleep and talking to someone can make a big difference in how you feel.

Some music I enjoy include:

Have a wonderful night and feel free to make your music suggestions in comments below. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by.

Grateful

Good Morning and pleasant Monday greetings to you all.

I am sorry for my inactivity over the last few days but around this time of the year for my family and I it gets intensely hectic as we typically host our Annual Christmas Extravaganza.

I am pleased to report that the event was a success and just keeps getting better and better every year!  Our supporters left happy and satisfied not only with their food and products but with the high quality of service they received.  This made us so happy.  A tremendous amount of work and time goes into the planning, decorating and cooking so it is always good to see and hear their satisfaction and appreciation for all we do.

thank-you-394180__340

We are very grateful for their continued support and we know that the first-time supporters would definitely be back next year.  God has been and continues to be good to us and we just want to say, THANK YOU Lord for ALL you do, have done and will do in our lives as well as the lives of the people we are fortunate to be apart of.

This event would not be the success that it is without the amazing team we have. I am and will always be grateful for my family.  I pray and ask God to continue to bless, protect and guide each and every one of us in all that we do.

Have a wonderful day everyone and remember to be grateful for everything you have no matter how little or insignificant you may think it is.  To someone less fortunate your blessing is a big deal and would make a big difference in his or her life.

Rushed

Rushed is how I would describe my week

So much to do, so much to tweak

Can’t tell you the last time I got a full night’s sleep

 

Christmas is my favourite time of year

But as my Annual Christmas function draws near

I’m trying to complete everything and eliminate all fear

Please Lord let everything go off as planned and let everyone

Be satisfied with all we have done

 

As I bid you farewell

Please know that thoughts of blogging are still in my head

I have not been reading as much as I should

But as soon as I get more time, I definitely would

So no matter what comes your way

Make good use of each day.

It’s Cold Outside

peony-785300__340

The weather outside is cold but it can’t numb out the warmth of your smile

You sit there quietly pondering your thoughts inside

The world around you is falling apart and it is breaking your heart

But you don’t go about complaining because you’re too focused doing your part

………………………………………………………………..

Everyone will have their opinions no matter what you do and say

So making efforts to please them would only stretch out your day

Now keeping that in mind, your PURPOSE on this earth is ALL you need to FIND

Remember, even when the rain falls, the sun still comes out to shine.
