Quotable Quotes…

Stop being on auto-pilot, Put yourself first, 

Recognize yourself, 

Stop pleasing other people,

or chasing some version of success that doesn’t resonate with you,

No need to numb it out with food, shopping, booze, TV, or other distractions,

Stop being worn down, beat up, stressed out, and completely depleted…. 
Wake Up

Live Intentionally!!! 

 

Scattered Thoughts (being Human)..


I was sulking and I did not quite realize…..as usual my thoughts were scattered….so many things to think about..

Is it even remotely possible to run from your own thoughts sometimes?.,

Maybe I just needed a holiday or my choice of music wasn’t quite up-beat. Nonetheless I needed to scribble something down…that itch that needs to be scratched..

It’s okay to feel unmotivated sometimes. We cannot have it all together….no one has it all together….and this is a FACT!!

There are times when you try to focus on something but no-matter how hard you try, if you’re not motivated it can’t happen the way you want it.

How many times do you start to write or read or plan to cook a meal from a recipe you saw on All-Recipe and halfway thru you feel so done..? A disconnect somehow happens..

Motivation somehow has a way of escaping us. True or false!?

Then at times it’s killed by obstacles that present themselves when they are least expected.

Last Sunday I wanted to bake cinnamon banana loaf. I was so ready. After church and feeling so light.. Blessed and hunger driven…I went ahead and added some things from the shop that I needed for the bake..
I got home and a black out decided to happen. I grrrrr-Ed, whoosa-ad, ate my lunch and dozed off…with my baking motivation killed…… but at least I had a long nap…

This is what I was telling you when I told you earlier that my thoughts were scattered….

My thoughts were on holiday. Motivation. Banana loaves. Soaking up the sun. Sunday naps. Blessings. Hunger…(.it’s a long list😂😂)!

All in all. I love that am human enough to know that I cannot have it all together. I work towards it, but marvel in the lessons I learn from the obstacles that life presents. It’s with overcoming these obstacles that I have managed to continually gain strength as I journey on in life.

Let’s human😂😂😊!!

Why Worry…?


Alive✔️

Healthy✔️

Blessed✔️

When we have this order in life, then why complain? There are so many other entries to key things to add to the above check list but these are the ones that top the list. Though all of them collectively equal to BLESSED!!!

Yesterday my son and I went to the supermarket to get a gift to our good friend. So we paid and went ahead to have our special gift wrapped. So we find this talkative guy who greeted us and the next thing that he said shocked me!!

Him: instead of wrapping gifts I should be finishing my degree…
Me: (touched and uttering a silent prayer) oh..
Him: it’s true, my friends are busy studying and here I am…. Doing long hours and poor working conditions…
Me: What about life!?
Him: (shocked)
Me: at least you’re doing something noble and saving up. There are some who are in a morgue right?
Him:true madam. I hadn’t thought about that really. I guess I should just be thankful huh?
Me: now that’s the spirit!! We human focus on what is going wrong in our life instead of the obvious positive that we have daily.
So he engaged my son and they team worked into wrapping the gift together. So I told him to keep his dream alive….(that of going back to campus)…
That’s the way of life. As hard as it is…the best thing to do is to learn contentment in our lives. Be thankful for what we have.

I got this:

“Most of what worries us today has absolutely nothing to do with today. – If you worry too much about what might be or what might have been, you will ignore and totally miss what is. Worry is the greatest opposition to the present moment. It does nothing but steal your joy and keep you incredibly busy doing absolutely nothing worthwhile at all….!”
So we thanked each other as I also learnt something from him. He told my son, “always strive to help out your mama okay young man?…now help your mama carry this gift and have fun at the party!!”

How cool is that???

Alive? Healthy? Blessed?? Say thank You!!

So many lessons but are we learning????

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….!

Musings and Feelings..

What makes me take time to write a post is my entry…Most of the time I want to say, “so, the other day blah blah…!” Or So, this great person I know… Then I hold back some and I end up saving it somewhere in my heart. When I go searching for it I find it mixed up with so many other entries and just smile as I try to sort out which is which.   

So here I am, still using my favourite word. Makes me seem unsure huh? It feels like it at times. But when the flow comes, it doesn’t matter where I am. As long as I have my phone or a pen and a paper. I will write away. It explains the sooo many sub notes I have. 

So what’s on my mind?! As usual it’s a buzz of a million thoughts.  


I heard a song today, a old classic by Pearbo Bryson and if you know him at all his songs can make you fall in love with the idea of being in love and loving somebody fiercely. Yeah I know I sound corny but it’s true. So I was thinking about that song and that feeling. Those feelings that you wanna feel. Haha And I wanted to write a novel at that time. It actually inspired my musings at this hour 17:05 on a rather hot Tuesday evening. The song holds a promise and a deep kinda hope. That would definately take a romantic to cloud nine. 


It’s very okay to feel like this. It’s actually refreshing. As you can tell today am focused on love. Romantic live that is. I believe in love. I never used to at some bleak point in life, but now I so Do!! And I guess it’s a given for us to feel like true romantic love doesn’t exist and It’s normal…..we all pass thru this phase. Let no one fool you.
