With the Moving Clouds…😊

There are certain things that should never pass you by. No matter how clogged up your mind is. What does it for me is the Sky. It has always fascinated me. I mean, who wouldn’t be able to notice all that beauty. Day or night?
Yesterday was no exception. My Son and I were going home from church. Taking a walk. The sun high up and blazing. Then I just looked up and the clouds happened to be moving as well. Oh what a sight. As usual I took a picture. They looked like big balls of cotton…slowly drifting away….there was a lot you could read from that movement….or rather just imagine….I wished the clouds could match my mood at that time. So pure. An expanse of white and peace… Having come from Church, I had gotten the peace That comes from just being in the house of The Lord but then There was more…
So being human and all, I was just wondering at the time…and also later…sometimes it’s unnecessary but it’s inevitable. Talk about internal conflicts. I guess I was just going through some motions. It happens right? 
When clouds appear like rocks and towers, the earth’s refreshed by a shower…..then it later became windy and there was a drizzle…

Ofcos, I was indoors by now taking homemade tea and having family time…my mind had rested it’s turmoil. 
This was just awesome! 
Let Your hands be so Busy Catching Blessings that you won’t have the Capacity to hold onto Grudges, Worry, Restlessness…etc 
We don’t need to worry. Just look around for what calms your soul. There is so much to see. Oh so much!! There is so much beauty around us. A way of God telling us and constantly reminding us that He will ever be there. 
So I rest Easy. It’s Monday😊

  

Oh WOW!!!

On my way to work and
voilà…………….Behold Such Fierce Beauty. Bold. Explosive Beauty. I love the sight of True opportunity in the morning. A reminder of a Wonderful promise of a bright day. Of Hope. Isn’t God just Amazing!?
Oh My!!! 

 

The Little Little Things..

Little things aren’t Little at all….

My routine is such that am up every day at 5am in the morning and I have to prepare so that within an hour am in the bus to the CBD. 


The hustle and bustle of everyday rush has left me feeling so worn out lately. I think burn out or just fatigue…..who needs that vitamin called Sea like I do?


So, the reason I decided to write up this piece is that despite my fatigue and weariness That I might feel, when I wake up to do my morning routine I realize that it’s so easy to forget to do the small things that can make your day worth the while. 


I realize when I take time to really look in the mirror when am dressing or brushing my teeth and smile at the person staring back and appreciate her I up my confidence and find that I can face the world head on. 


It’s such a little thing right?….


Well try adding to that, your favorite perfume, a freshly brewed cup of coffee( I prefer a warm mug of cinnamon and honey….try it).., then coffee is a MUST later in the day, lately I have an obsession to Coldplay’s Adventure of a Lifetime, I think it’s such a dope song for anytime of the day…, then before I forget…when the alarm wakes me up, that breathing and heart beat reminds me am alive and well and fortunate… I say thank You to my God…it’s the simplest prayer and it feels so Good. 


I don’t know what does it for you to make your mornings happy ones. I would like to know. 


Meanwhile, why don’t you just take time to appreciate yourself despite your daily Struggles? Smile. Dance. Sing. Pray. Breathe. Even if not in that order. 


Enjoy the small things in life. 


Bravery….

I need to stop forgetting that I’m a brave girl. A woman who follows her heart even if it leads her off a cliff. I know I’m strong enough to climb back up, dust myself off, laugh at the ridiculous of it all and still find room in my heart to allow someone to enter. I need to stop forgetting that I’m a brave girl. That my heart is equal parts glass and stone. The stone protects the delicate bits, the glass shines through the stone and reveals the truth. I’m no weak thing. No shrinking violet. No quivering mess of low self esteem and self doubt. I’m a warrior woman. I’ve been through so much, I forget that what I go through is nothing in comparison. I’ve always found breath. I’ve always found bodies, family, to bury my face into. The tears always dry. The heart always slows to a recognizable rhythm. My spine always straightens just a little bit more. I need to stop forgetting that I’m a brave girl and remind the world that I was brought here to create. Live without regrets. I did it and moved in. The reason will reveal itself in its own time.

So I will continue building a life out of copper and sunlight. Even at my worst, if the sun hits me the right way, or the wrong way, or forgets to hit me at all, something inside me shines anyway.

And this is how the letting go and moving on and allowing peace begins.

 

Quotable Quotes!

  

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon – instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windowstoday. 

 

Quotable Quotes

❝ Loving someone should be hard and active, not easy and passive. When you sign up to actually love people – no fakers allowed – then you sign up for a life of runny noses, awkward car rides, hugs that last too long, pauses that demand no noise, and admitting you were wrong. If you want to actually love people then you have to be willing to be wrong. Love is forgiveness. And it’s atonement. And it’s basically like putting your soul in a washing machine – it’s not some gentle cycle, it’s a fierce whipping that rings you out good. It makes the stains fade. Best of all, it fills the holes. ❞ – Hannah Brencher
