Let Us Just Be

Let’s strive to be WHO we are meant to be and make no apologies for it.

Let’s embrace the possibilities and disregard the negativity that may try to discourage us.

Let’s explore the unknown and give life to the notion that we might be the missing link to so many problems and issues in the world but we have to be willing and bold.

Let’s be grateful for our blessings for without them we could not have made it this far.

Let’s seize opportunities for they are stepping stones to new chapters in our lives.

Let us help when and wherever we can because it is the right thing to do even though we may not always get a “Thank You”.

Let us empower ourselves to be the heroes the world so desperately needs us to be – as you do you and I do me.

Let us support and encourage each other because we ALL can use a cheerleader from time to time. 🙂  Pushing us along the way to persevere another day.

Let us remember to live, love, laugh and forgive along the way. These simple acts may help extend our lives each day.

Let us never forget to pray as this for me is the only way, to start and end each day.

Lastly, let us just be and as you work on YOU and I work on ME together we’ll be growing independently. Learning as we go along the way to appreciate and value every single day.

Thank you for making this blog one of your stops in this journey called life.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Don’t stand still

 

Life and time don’t stand still – so why should we?

Life is about transformation, growth and development.

We come into this world as babies but we don’t stay that way.   We grow and develop and with each new stage of life come new lessons, new opportunities and new milestones for us to overcome.

Along the way it is up to us, to create happiness and enjoy the good times with the time allotted to us.  We should not allow the negative experiences to steal our joy instead just note them as lessons learnt.

Remember live, love and laugh!!!!

Make today a great one. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.

What’s Up Wednesday #7

Wednesday greetings to everyone! How was your day? Today was mostly  overcast and rainy here in sweet Trinidad and Tobago.  Hope the weather wherever you are was better.

Let me share what I’ve been up to these days. 🙂

What I’m eating this week:

I had a late lunch today.  We ordered BBQ wings, Cheesy Bread sticks, Tuscani Chicken Alfredo Pasta and a large Santa Fe (Beef and Pineapple) Pizza from Pizza Hut.  I enjoyed each bite and you can believe that I had a little of everything on my plate. 🙂

What I’m reminiscing about: 

The days when I did not or rather could not drive myself around.  It was the job of the taxi or maxi driver to get me where I needed to be.  It could be very tiring having to drive yourself and everyone else where they need to be all the time.  I am however, very grateful that I do have my car because it allows me the freedom to go where I want, when I want.  🙂

What I’m loving:

This week in Summer camp we made some really neat craft items with  the kids. We made bookmarks and paper flowers.  We even decorated a glass and re-purposed it as a vase and even made a paper bag hanging decoration.

What I’ve been up to:

              

Bookmarks                                    Decorated glasses with paper flowers

                

Before/ After Plain White Paper Bag Hanging Decorations

I’ve been busy assisting with craft activities.  All of these ideas were inspired by some amazing YouTubers but we have added a few elements of our own.  I really liked how they all turned out.    We have two more weeks of camp and both the kids and I look forward to doing more activities. 🙂

What I’m dreading:

Errands, errands and more errands.  The next few weeks aside from making craft with the kids and entertaining them every so often I have my own personal checklist of things to get done over the next few weeks.

Right now, I’m trying not to look directly at it – because it is so intimidating at the moment.  That by the way, is not working because my brain is still trying to play out how best to get it all done. 🙁

What I’m working on:

Getting my finances in order!  Have you ever been so comfortable with everything that you just take it for granted that things would always be like that.  I did and I paid big time. Thankfully, after what seemed like forever things are starting to look up. 🙂

What I’m excited about:

I’m excited about getting to relax, enjoy a change of scenery and eat delicious food (not prepared by me). 🙂

What I’m watching:

It’s more like what have I watched recently.  I’ve recently seen Transformers – The Last Knight (interesting story line), Cars 3, The Mummy with Tom Cruise (definitely different from all the other Mummy movies done before) and Despicable Me 3 (interesting spin).

Overall, I enjoyed all four movies. If you have seen any of these movies you can feel free to share your thoughts on it without giving away too much to spoil it for the others who have not seen them yet.

Who/ What I’m listening to:

I’ll be honest with you, I have a mild headache so I’m here sipping some tea and trying to keep things as quiet as can be.  The only noise I am hearing is that from my fingers on the keyboard.

What I’m wearing/ Let’s Go Shopping:

Today I visited Macy’s website and here are a few things that caught my eye. 🙂

a.                b.

c.                   d.

a. Nine West Striped Pleated Halter Dress

b. Jessica Howard Medallion Lace Sheath Dress

c. Le Suit Shawl-Collar Tweed Skirt Suit

d. Tahari ASL Lace-Trim Skirt Suit

 

What I’m doing this weekend:

I’m not sure yet what or where I’ll end up but I’m sure my family has a lot planned for me. I’ll just prepare my mind and body to go with the flow.

What I’m looking forward to the next month:

I’m looking forward to a much slower and definitely less hectic month.  A month filled with fun, laughter, good food and wonderful memories.  🙂

What else is new?

Unfortunately, not much right now but who knows what amazing revelations the future has in store for me.  🙂

That’s a wrap for now until next week.  Make the most of each day even when it may not be going the way you like.  A simple change in your attitude or perspective can make a big difference.

Thanks for stopping by.

 

Never Underestimate Time

I used to think that once I had LIFE that I would be able to do anything and for the most part this is true.

For without life, we are dead and the possibility to do anything is no more.

Then it hit me, the most precious gift we have is TIME.

For life without ‘time’ means we would be limited by what we can do.

Although we cannot control time, we can choose to make the most of it and that is when we are truly living.

Let us not take our lives for granted because when we do we assume we have time and no one knows how much they really have.

Choose to live, love and laugh as much as you can.

Make today a great one. 🙂
