May this morning as the warm rays of the sun gently cover your body find each of you full of life with a sense of purpose and peace as you go through your day. May your disruptions be few and may you always have clarity of mind and spirit to overcome any obstacle or challenge that may come your way. In Jesus name, Amen!
One day at a time is how we learn and grow. This is true for all of us. From birth straight through to our adult lives and this is not limited only to our ability to move but our intellect and spirituality as well.
The thing is, no one person has ALL of the answers and those persons who have words of wisdom to share with others would have developed them from over years of learning from their own life lessons.
Each day will bring with it opportunities for growth, understanding and challenges which ultimately add up to lessons which help shape and develop us as individuals. Don’t beat yourself up if you don’t get it right the first time or the even the second time.
When the situation seems bigger than YOURSELF and you can’t seem to find a way to overcome it. Pray for clarity of mind, ask for God’s guidance and he WILL provide the answer. You just have to listen not only with your ears but your eyes, heart and spirit. Worrying and stressing about it will only cloud and block your ability to see and receive the very answers you are searching for.
So dear friends remember, take it one day at a time. Embrace each day as a potential lesson to be learnt. Be sure to apply a positive attitude as this would help to make your journey much easier as you learn and grow along the way.
Make today a wonderful one. Thank you for stopping by.
This too shall pass dear friend so no need to fret
And just when you think all is LOST
You’ll feel a rupture from deep within
A strange but calming feeling
Powering you, giving you that FINAL win.
In life challenges will come at us all of the time. The challenges and obstacles are only temporary so we need to hold firm and ride them out.
It’s like the weather, we have sunny days and we have rainy days too and based on where you live you might even have a blizzard or two but at the end of it all – a rainbow emerges giving us its beautiful light and we must all agree that is a wonderful sight.
Welcome back to Music Reflection Mondays!Most of last week I was bombarded by various radio stations with this song from Sam Smith called Too Good At Goodbye.
Every time I hear it, it takes me back to chapters in my life when “goodbyes” were needed but were so difficult because of the emotional attachments. The lyrics are so relatable to anyone who has been in a relationship that ended up taking more than it was giving or just was too toxic for you to continue to survive in. I think he penned it beautifully.
Relationships come and relationships go and based on our history or patterns with our partners we adjust emotionally and expose less and less of true selves to reduce the feeling of loss and disappointment should things not work out.
It is a sad song as it highlights the emotions, thoughts and frustrations of someone in a relationship who is just so tired of the roller-coaster ride that walking away is the BEST alternative. Walking away is never easy but I love Dua Lipa’s New Rules song. I like how she list the rules as she attempts to get over the failed relationship. She has a more upbeat approach to the situation. I love it!!!! 🙂
Are you familiar with the paper towel brand known as Bounty? They use the slogan, “The Quicker Picker Upper”. It is often used to show how well and how much it absorbs when compared to other brands.
Are you going through life behaving like a Bounty Paper Towel? You know, absorbing everything and holding everything in. Bounty is great for cleaning up messes and a lot of other things too. However, adapting the ‘Bounty Approach’ to our everyday lives and issues is not healthy physically or mentally.
The reality is, even a sponge will spill the excess liquid when it can’t hold any more. The human mind and body is no different. So be weary of how much and what you allow yourself to endure.
Listen! You can’t control or fix everything or everyone. The only real control we have is over ourselves. So don’t suffer in silence, don’t overload and burden yourself with things you really have NO control over. See it or them for what they are and find a way forward. Talk to someone. Pray about it. Write about it. Sing about it. Find a healthy and safe way to express what you’re feeling so you can truly smile and laugh again.
The load or burden you carry would feel so much lighter.
Hi guys, today was just one of those days when it rains it pours. Yesterday, I found out that my car radiator was leaking (at least that’s what the radiator guy confirmed so we replaced it with a new one). I did my happy dance until I noticed this morning the problem is still there.
Talk about frustrating. So now I must have the mechanic check it since the radiator guy discovered another leak that has nothing to do with the new radiator. Another problem!!!!!! The mechanic would take a look tomorrow to have the problem fixed. This had me a little depressed to be honest but I’m hoping it’s nothing too expensive or difficult to resolve. So I’ve written this poem about it to help cheer me up. Hope you like it.
