Hello Everyone,

It is a new month and I am excited. I hope you too are excited about the new month. I am more excited because Christmas is just around the corner. Also am glad that October is over.

Not everyone is happy that it’s a new month but take heart and cheer up. There are things that you may control such as your emotions and there are those that are beyond you like the weather.  Focus on what you can control. Start the new month with a good mood and motivation and you will evidently see how this changes your inner peace and productivity.

Happy new month all.

Pray for Las Vegas!

Hello Everybody,

I have held my opinion on the Las Vegas attack for a few days while trying to wrap my mind around what just happen. I hope all of my readers and fellow bloggers and their families are okay.

The thought of a retiree maliciously aim to kill people, boggles my mind and breaks my heart. I feel that the whole world needs an explanation for this massacre.

On the other hand, I may not understand what lead the 64-year-old to this point. Other than this particular shooting, there have been many other shootings. All these shootings seem to be gaining strength recently and it is scary. But am not here to defend him, I am more concerned about the victims and their families.

Some or most of the fans at the concert may be in dire need of mental health services. Depending on the intensity of the effects, their needs may differ. There are those fans who would require specialized psychiatrist while others will recuperate with the help and support from family and friends.

In addition to hurt and trauma faced by the victims (the people present at the Las Vegas shooting), the world is hurting too. In the midst of this hurt, anger and uncertainty are building and people are looking into ways to channel out these emotions. Some may be healthy and be of the common good while others may not be. Before jumping to conclusions, there’s need to wait until the facts are known before rushing to judge which would later lead to more harm than good.

Human beings are capable of both love and hate. Let us embrace the former, appreciate life and build of our togetherness as ONE, as human beings.

In the midst of this, I would like to say that;

If you are going through a hard time, taking a life is not the best option. Instead, speak to someone about it, and get help. Let’s not discriminate others based on what they are going through but embrace them and help them get better.

Despite the mode of intervention, they are suffering emotionally during to the horrific attack.  We can also take action on this attack and many others across the world. For those praying for Las Vegas, Nevada, thank you if you have not, I urge you to. You are not okay or comfortable praying, you can take action by being kind to others, spreading happiness, mercy, and peace around you. These are just examples, there is more you can do to make the world a better place.

Right now, we need to keep the victims, injured and their families and friends in our thoughts and prayers.

What you choose to do life is all dependent on your goals and means to achieve them. With the right choice of methods and goals, yields the right results. On the other hand, wring choice of techniques leads to wrong results.  All things that we do is directly or indirectly affect the goals we set. This implies that we are responsible for our own progress.

In line with being responsible for the excuses and lots of complaints. This basically shows that when you fall short of realizing your set objectives, most likely you begin to blame others. The excuses and complaints are as a result of frustrations of falling short of achieving your objectives. Playing the blame game does not resolve frustrations associated with failure or shortcoming.

Complaints and excuses move you backward but suggestions push you forward. Stop making more excuses than you give suggestions. You are your worst enemy; Quit complaining and begin moving forward.

Wish you all the best as you set goals and achieve them.

Great day ahead.

Namaste.

Get out of your own way of success

We all have dreams and aspirations in life, however, there are days that we may not be favoring this. On those, ‘low days’ one may experience negative feelings and emotions or behave contrary to the dreams. It is normal to feel down, which may obscure the process through which we achieve the dreams.

On a race track there may be stones, ideally, you shall skip or avoid the stones so that your running. After passing by these stones, running becomes easy and you will get to the finish line happy and fulfilled. You can all relate to this racing track in your life. In the same, the race track is your life and the stones are the feelings, behaviors. The ‘stones steer you away from or off the track.

Since the ‘stones’ are hindrances; devices methods to either get the stones out of your way or circumnavigate them. This way your pathway is clear and you shall move forward towards achieving your dreams and goals.

Get rid of all negative items, self-destructive behaviors and move toward to your race’s finish line.

Wish you all the best as you set goals and achieve them.

Great day ahead.

Namaste.

Quotes are interesting words that spark something us both from the author of the quote and audience or individual that reads it. On the blog here, we have had the dose of goodness which has motivated and inspired most of you to live healthier lives.

“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.” – Frederick Douglass

When you learn to read, your mind is open to inquiry and you open your mind to the world of education. Once you are open to inquiry, you are more inclined to solve societal problems around and thus contribute positively the society. As you succeed in the quest to solve problems the community around you is ranked successful.

Another contribution of this quote is that I  think you tend to be free through education because you will want to know more. I also think that you are free in the education world since you get immersed in that field or content.

Every time I grab a book to read, I find joy as well as freedom. I would love to know what this quote means to you. Share your thoughts on this quote in the comments.

Namaste. Caroline

Today is a bitter and sweet day; it is the 11th of September and it brings chills to my spine. It has been 16years since the tragic 9/11. On this day the tragic events led to the death of several people both physically, emotionally and mentally. This is the bitter truth concerning this particular day. It is during this time that many have lost property, loved ones and also those that have lost their lovely and caring pets due to the Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. This is heart breaking.

However, there is a sweet thing that emanates from this incident. Instead of crying and moaning of the befallen, let us celebrate the heroes. Those who lost their lives on this fateful day are living as heroes and heroines in our hearts. Let’s come together and honor heroes. Let’s talk about heroes in all of us. Let’s love and be kind to one another.

The bonding as a nation and the entire world after the tragic events of 9/11. This bonding has become the basis of kindness and love for one another. It is not about how hard you fall, but how smart you get up and remain standing. 9/11 is not all about the events that happened in the US but we all have experienced those down moments that may or may not have been similar to this (9/11). let us dust off ourselves and triumph and remain standing. Let us uplift, love and be kind to one another.

Namaste.

Hello Everyone,

 

I know it has been a while since we had this amazing column. Good news it that its back.

We all have goals in our lives. Knowing exactly where you want to be and what to get there is half of it. The difference is not that we are wired differently. But what are you doing to achieve your goal?

Lastly, I will end the post with a quote:

“Having an aim is the key to achieving your best.” – Henry J. Kaiser

Fly away to your achieve your goals.

Anything that anyone can do, I can do it too.

Nothing in this world is impossible. You are beyond the impossible. What has been done earlier, can be done better. There is always room for improvement. Look at the evolution of the electric bulb and other innovations done in the 19th century and even the 18th century. People have improved on them and change the world. That which has not been done is waiting to be done or discover by someone else. Why not do it yourself? Take the leap of faith and do it.
What is hindering you from your success is you. Every is an opportunity but what makes the difference is what you get or make of it.

Reach out and Grasp the opportunity.

Namaste.

Through the Cracks

I don’t write poems, neither have I done any. I was looking back at how my week has beenand this came up in my mind.

closeup

She opens her eyes,
All she saw was the  screaming dark black
She gusped for air, the cold air
Panick mode was on,
Her heartbeat ran away from the darkness,
It was over,  no where to go or hide.
then,
Little cracks and  the light comes in,
Dawn has come.

I would like to end the post with a quote:

Sometimes when you’re in a dark place you think you’ve been buried. but actually you been planted. by Christine Caine

I hope you enjoyed the poem.

On your Feet

falling-leaves

Life is too short to be unhappy. Focus on the positive things of life. Take baby steps towards your dream. Some steps may make you fall to your feet; this does not mean that you stay on the ground and gave up. Get up, dust yourself and make a step forward. everyday is a day to change, make use of it and be happy.

You either stay on the ground  or get up and move. I will end this post with a quote:

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” – Albert Einstein

Namaste.
