Hello….


Hello, how are you…?

No am not writing down Adele’s song, but I would want to you to feel the realness of the simple statement esp. when she starts it off..

From this side though.., where it’s more of a disregarded formality, I would like us to take a small trip into ‘how we are!’

When was the last time you met someone who asked you how you really are? And really meant it?

I can raise my hand and say with all honesty that It’s become a rare thing.

Life has moved so fast for some of us to catch up so much so that some people don’t care anymore.

They want you to know their frustrations and predicaments.

People are squeezed into corners of the ‘me’ syndrome. Some unknowingly… Some because they are just self centered…

I want to tell you am sorry if personally I forget to ask how you really are if we ever meet and the world seems to be all in about to ball out.

Not to say that as an excuse. No. No. No.

It’s merely an observation. A keen one at that.

I met a pal sometime back and to be honest they did not bother to ask how I was. It feels off to me. Esp if you care enough to actually wanna know…

And so it boils down to listening and being heard. Of which it’s a day to day thing that we forget😩😩…(let’s learn and master the art of listening people…)

It’s human to have the pressures in life. It’s selfish to think it’s all about you and how you feel. And what revolves around you.

Take time to ask, hello, how are you and actually mean it!! Coz most often this is answered by ….’how about you!?’

After TRULY getting thru the greetings then we can tell if we are ready to share all we have bottled inside or if the energy can match ours.

I stand to be corrected though. People feel differently about different things. But before going on to tell someone you’ve met with so much, it’s okay and wise to know just how they are…

As Adele’s song fades in the background of my memory with her ever so amazing song I say my hello to you….!

C’mon Inner Peace…

While I have been thinking about Growth and Coffee and all the good things…sparkles, good vibes, sundresses and lemonades…,vitamin Sea…., you wake up on days where being human kicks in fast and hard. And it can suck!! BIG-TIME!!!!!
When being the bigger one in ‘grown up’ situations makes you feel small in the big decisions,
When the search for the inner peace feels like a climb in a very steep mountain and trying to meditate feels like a bad joke.


When the phrase, ‘it’s one of those days” feels like three years squeezed into a day…
Deep breathing feels like you have done a thousand sprints in a span of a long minute and you can’t even catch up with your breathe….
When sleep evades you or you feel sleeping for 6 days because you just feel tired…
Then you meet people who have had it TOUGH!!!! I mean TOUGH!!!
You got nothing on what they go through. What being human to them means. Those people Who carry a bucket of water to put off your fire because that’s who they are.
They are downright HUMBLE.
They honestly just sit down and listen. They want to be heard but it’s not always about them. They don’t have the ‘I’ syndrome. And then they offer a simple, ‘it’s gonna be alright ‘ nod. Simple kind gestures. Kindness is theirs to keep.
And then you sit down and listen to them and just become stunned and shush. Because no words can come out right…
In that moment you are reminded that if we just sit and listen we will always hear the depth of what really goes on. That it’s okay to feel down and unworthy. But there is hope. There is a promise. That at the end of the day, we are just that….HUMAN!!!!!

Brand New Day..

I love the amazing-ness of mornings. And I have mentioned this before right? Well yeah, Mornings are awesome. The smell and promise of a new day means a lot. Its brand newness. It’s freshness. The new possibilities. A day not stained with Regrets or Tarnished with Broken promises or Tattered with Frustrations…

It’s a blank page, a new page, awaiting………..Awaiting for you and I to make/ write down/ draw new memories. A new story. A better story than Yesterday’s. It’s so easy to paint yourself all Blue and in as much as it’s my favorite color, I believe there’s a wide range of colors that we can use on the blank canvas to make it Pretty Cool or rather…. beautiful!!!!

Prayer. Exercise. Laughter. Music. Art. Books. The list is endless.  

I rolled out of bed with this quote in mind,”a person’s mind is so powerful. We can invent, create, experience and destroy things with thoughts alone!’ Am not sure whose quote it is but it’s so deep.

So I willed myself not to paint my empty canvas of the day before me with negative thoughts….and I just had an itch to write…Because an itch is something that demands to be scratched, just as hunger demands to be fed…and mine was a Prayer:

Thank you Lord for a good start to the month of October.. I look forward to a great month. This year has been a struggle to say the least. So many dips. But somehow you pull us thru Lord. Thank you. Forgive me for the times I am in worry and in doubt which is a lot…I believe you have better things planned. I trust You wholly to guide us in the right path. Help me Lord to reach my ideals. Point me in the right direction. Especially when it comes to faith. Family. Work. Finances. Friendship.

Thank You God!

AMEN!!!

As my itch subsides…and my hunger is fed…Cheers to Inventing. Creating. And Experiencing Beautiful Days Ahead.
