Life is For Living…

Nine days ago was my last journal update( I know I know….it’s a long time)…

I wrote, “listen to yourself….the voice that’s in your heart and not your head; it’ll lead you to your goal!”What was I going through?? ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
What can I say….? It’s been a roller-coaster of events and emotions…as usual. It’s amazing how times pan out sometimes…WHOA!!
The mind is a battlefield indeed!!!
We lost a workmate due to a short illness and that really weighed down on us big-time. It was an emotional time to be honest and one that deeply engraved into us the true meaning on living in the moment. Life is indeed for living. May you dance with the angels buddy. 

So I sit and sip on my green tea and reflect on the days gone by and also on the lessons that come with everyday. 

I’ve been having fatigue. Physically. Emotionally. Whateverly…I mean really! I was actually looking for possible vacation locations just Incase… ( it’s good to be optimistic..it’s the thought that counts right?)..I have to make it happen sooner…
I realized that life like I said can pan out in interesting ways:-
1) Confusion: you become confused about your direction and focus as a human being. As it happens confusion can be a strong point in life….for it’s where you get to learn new things. It’s not easy but I’ve learnt to embrace confusion when it happens. You learn about people and situations better. Your eyes are opened. Ps: you are what you do, not what you say you’ll do. 
2) Brokenness: this is part of life. There are many things that break us,..but despite it all realize that it comes with healing. It’s never permanent. You learn to heal through music, art, friendships, getaways….
3) Frustration: when you’re frustrated you learn to make authentic decisions. Oh boy! This one is major. So many things can frustrate you. Grrrrrr (breathing in and out)! Lemmi not focus on it today. This tea is calming…Ps: you know you’re on the right track because things stop being easy!!

4) Sadness: oh this month has a fair share of sad moments๐Ÿ˜ฟ๐Ÿ˜ฟ๐Ÿ˜ฟ๐Ÿ˜ฟ๐Ÿ˜ž. But it’s during this time that you can hear your heart’s wisdom. Do not suppress this emotion at all. Cry if you have to but live through it. Ps: weeping may endure for the night but joy comes in the morning.


5) Joy: this is to be experienced almost everyday. There are so many reasons to. Especially when you sit and realize that you’re here. Now. In this very moment. Healthy. Fed. Clothed. Be joyous at all times. 
I’m listening to Jazz. I’m calm. I’m feeling great. I never want to hide from my emotions. I used to but I’ve met people who have taught me not to suppress things. Even if you are stark raving mad. 
Life is for living. Be brave. Be authentic. Be ready. You’re worthy. Always!!!

Ps: when you take care of yourself, you’re a better person for others. When you feel good about yourself, you treat others better~ Solange!!



  

Being Hands on…

16:12 pm

The 4th day of April 2018. 

Having been in the office the whole day, where it’s been chilly, I’m welcoming the warmth of the sun on my face….and Oh it feels heavenly. 

It’s been a mildly busy day. And my mind has been racing today. Too many things to think about. 

But I can’t complain really. I’m alive. I’m Here….. Now…in this moment๐Ÿ˜Š!

And with my grateful heart, and my rambling thoughts I managed to enjoy a pen down. 

As you grow older, you realize why and how words are only words unless you back them up with some action. 

It’s just a question of training yourself and also the very many experiences you encounter as you scurry through life. 

Life is hands on. 

You have to put actions into the thoughts that fill your mind. Be it affirmations. Dreams. Goals….you have to get into it!

While at it, avoid getting distracted by things that have nothing to do with your goals. 

There are many things that we just think about but we don’t put them into action. Today morning is a good example…I snoozed my phone while I should’ve got out and did my workout. The result was me feeling even more tired. 

Clearly….when you snooze you loose. 

So aim at doing the hard thing. Challenge yourself to do better every moment. Kick out that duvet and face the day. 

I teach my son that you have to be practical in life. Read. Play. Help out…..

This life is not for being spoon fed. It’s tough…it’s beautiful. It’s a one shot chance to be the best we can be. You can’t get through life always thinking you’re right. Make mistakes but give life a chance. Live. 

“A certain type of perfection can only be realized through a limitless accumulation of imperfect!”
Do your art. Dance. Sing. Create. Workout. Read. Hug. Cook. Don’t just talk and talk. 

Try to be hands on. It’s fun.
