SUNSHINE

Through the Motions…

As others are soaking in the sun and enjoying their summer season, I was looking for sunshine and found it in a double caramel macchiato and carrot cake…the weather has been chilly lately. I really don’t mind it though…the cold weather that is….so I checked into a Cafè for some much needed coffee fix and just to chill and gaze at people and read and just be…

The past few months have been crazy, too much to be done,..going through the motions, the highs, the lows…all these not new to anyone really… But, as usual I’ve come to learn so much. You just have to learn. There is no other way. Life is that way. Not sometimes…. But all the TIME!!


I’ve come to find fulfillment in simple things. That being a minimalist is so much better. That giving is far much better than receiving. That actions will always speak louder than words….That words are only words unless acted upon…

That you give energy to what impacts you positively..

That moving on with life is okay. You don’t need to be stuck up!

That people aren’t what they seem to be and that’s also okay!

That there’s no need to hold on to what you can’t control!

That you can manage your anger when life upsets you…just Whooooosa😜!!

That planning ahead pays up big time!

That dreams do come true!


For me it’s an enlightment as I grow older. Day by day, moment by moment, there’s always a reminder that life is precious. We’re here only once. 


Be thankful for life. For peace of mind. Provision. Shelter. Clean water. Clothing. Food. Families. Friends. Laughter. And the list in endless..


And if things are so hard you just can’t stand them…just kneel….PRAY!!


As I sip on my mug of sunshine and eat my cake…I am just thankful for this moment!!!

Joy in the Morning..


Aha!!

This was not a moment to behold. I was bewildered. I was feeling like a ticking time bomb. The explosion was about to happen anytime…. I was one moment tossing…. Another moment Pacing….another moment almost kicking my feet in the air.

Rambling thoughts. Emotions. Pain…..

I got misty eyed….no…scratch misty eyes..I was almost wailing…

Toothache!!

That night I could do anything to ease the pain I was in. I took a shower..I had green tea(don’t ask)…I took a high dose of painkillers…my son kissed my cheek..my brother played me soft rock…since my mom was home, she massaged ointment on my cheek…and also Iced my swollen cheek. I was looking like I had just come from a boxing match and had lost( knockout)…LOL…. .NOTHING….NOTHING was working… I totally blame the devil!!
Somehow all these remedies decided to collaborate with each other and sleep came.

“Weeping may endure for the night….but Joy comes in the morning..” True. True. True. I now properly get the meaning of that statement. I looked at myself in the morning and started laughing. And the funniest thing is that when I looked outside, the sun coming out was the most beautiful sight…let’s just say an Aha moment…a sight to behold…..

It made me think of the saying,.. that there’s always sunshine after the storm…hahaha!!
Now that my stormy night was in the past, I focused on my morning and it’s beauty with my Cheek swollen and pain free,I could afford positive vibes.

It got me thinking how in life we tend to focus on the pain forgetting that it’s always preparing us and shaping us to welcome the warmth and beauty of life. For we can not have everything that easy. That if we endure pain, as long as we are willing to go through with it….we emerge strong and victorious.

The toothache in your life will only last during the night. A bright morning is coming. Hang in there buddy!!!

Share Your Shine…

I was reaching for my cup of cinnamon tea on a cold Wednesday afternoon and realized I had already had my last sip….dang!! Am not sure what time the last sip happened. I must have been engrossed in what I was reading and the song playing at the time…..Ordinary World- Red. And Am yet to decide which version I like best. Duran Duran or Red…. Maybe Both..? Let me know which one you prefer….But it’s so deep!!!
I knew I wanted to write down something. I am not sure what. I can’t say I woke up feeling all that yay…. I am fatigued and I need me a Vacation..but my day is good now..despite the cold…someone managed to cheer me up…:)..
Well sometimes it’s not about how tired we feel or how heavy the day seems. At times the beauty of knowing someone somewhere cares and thinks the world of you is all you need.

I am pretty sure that someone somewhere needs it and we need to share our sunshine regardless.
Our little actions and words can be a turning point indeed. They often go along way. Sometimes No one can tell what’s on another’s mind by just looking and assuming. The old lady seated next to me was very polite and she just said a warm, “Goodevening madam…” As she sat next to me in the bus I was in. I don’t particularly like that ‘madam’ part as it makes me feel old…LOL if anyone was to ask me how old I feel today I would say NOT sixty….. I would say 26. I think it’s a good age…kinda. Lol..

This is just an example of how a simple hello can help change the thought pattern… I guess the point is simple: kind gestures have to be fixed into our daily life…
So do Share your Sunshine!!
