Hard Times of Joy

Hard times of joy are miracle times. Perseverance is one of  the keys to success .Let nobody lie to you that their achievements were airborne .Even wealthy inheritance requires good management to maintain it’s wealthy status. Nothing is made out of nothing and nothing comes easily out of the blues in life .Whatever one aims for in life , one must know the Why?,What?,in order to find the How?.This pattern enables  us maintain a balanced course of action without losing direction. A positive cause might be a decision to lose weight and the reason could be for the purposes of a  better outlook and good health .Both reasons are valid and a  successful outcome is possible. An attitude of perserverance is key since some hard work and  careful planning must be put into account. Maintaining a scheduled time and practice and discarding bad junk food habits is a must. Exercising often is difficult but it is not impossible. The temptation  of cravings will at times eat away at the mind causing  bad moods and sad moments .Fear of failure and been mocked  by people will cause distraction if not kept at bay and in check. But say no to giving up ,for be sure the  hard times are almost over and joy whispers , its on it’s way , just around the corner .Do not fight the tears,  sweats, muscle pains and aches ,but choose to embrace them. They are your allies.They are assuring you,what a  marvelous job you are doing and you are on the tight, right path.  Delete /discard  the  demons of shady ,diverse procrastinations ,be it toxic friends, things or places  ,by keeping on doing what deep down you know is best for your mind ,body and soul.Remember, Spiritual guidance is another key to success.Through  prayer ,song ,meditation ,showing gratitude and in the acts of sharing and helping you are truly balanced. You are  not alone in the struggle to lose weight, to reach another level in your career,or mend that  unstable relationship, you will overcome. Your required actions are hard work , getting up and about.For in everything in life there is a choice to  agree or a dis-agree and neither is right or wrong .It’s is in the “why?”, there lies  the answer .I wish you success and great day.

A big hug of love.

Excluded”Outsider”

l l felt humiliated..sad….small.l had been left out , excluded, to join a certain chama – a women’s group in Europe .When l enquired from it’s main founder , a lady l considered a best friend ,she did not give me a straight answer and brushed me off by changing  the subject .It was puzzling , but life had to continue within a hypocritical friendship.l labeled it  ,,outsider ” and buried it in the caves of my wounds.Today ,l recalled this incident and l very happily  thought to myself ; “Wow! ain’t l grateful!”l realized how far l how The Universe had saved me from a  bad situation and indeed being excluded had turned out to be a plus for me.

In comparison, the,,insiders,, group had drifted in a very ugly breakup of petty talk ,fights and disclosure of  closed group secrets .l realized too what a breach of trust meant .l also observed that sub-consciously l had become more discreet and quite reserved .l had also learnt another important life lesson of survival. “Saying No To Future Expectations of Others”.

“No expectations “meant being  content with who l am ,and not looking for fulfillment from others.Another lesson learnt was  in handling   business matters .The criteria l use is  “no personal strings attached .It has to be a win-win relationship”.

Exclusion could at times be for your benefit .Only time will tell!Most importantly is being aware of our actions and their effects .

“If It Were Me?”

“If it were me, l….would..l could..” A common statement in our daily conversations.Spoken from a superior position of comparison, based from an assumption  and thought that one is better , or can do better, than another. Moreover,in direct confrontation , in most cases  not spoken very kindly .Other times ,it  happens behind the accused person’s back. The latter by any defination is gossip.

Reflecting on this habit ,l admit l am  often  guilty of  , l decided l needed to discard it from today.From a point of love l  have share what l call my self-therapy tips:

▪︎Identify the thought  whose main source is usually envy or jealousy.

▪︎Recognize it for what it is. A reflection of a past .Bygone.

▪︎Adjust this behaviourial talk with an action.The Move.

▪︎Create a new idea ,a  new object or job or whatever  it is that “If it were me….l would…could have…”Replace through creation.

▪︎Be in the present.See all,we,us  at all times .Consciously, be kind to myself, as l would wish others to be to me .Ask myself  Always The Big Q? Why? Is it Necessary ?

Doors of Life.

The function of a door is to either close behind or to open,and allow us to go inside the space .However , humans are curious beings and rightfully so .We are here on Planet Earth to dwell and joyfully serve. Therefore,when one door closes stop trying to push it so hard.Take time to reflect on “Why ….?”.If you can not find an answer Move On. There are plenty of other Doors . Some Door even has a special key with your name on it .That Door is waiting For You To Turn The Key and  Walk into Your Purpose.In that space of opportunities are many. You will recognise it.You will know from your heart and mind combined.It will not feel strange even though it might be somewhat competitive.As a normal person, you will most probably experience creeping thoughts to take flight or start a judgemental  fight.DON’T! Remind ,yourself who you are.We are co-creators ,divine spirits having physical experiences on Mother Earth.

It is your natural, inherent right to worth and value.Walk through the door majestically knowing The Universe has your back and Gods grace is With You always.

Like A Child l Will.

We have been taught that behaving like a child is a stupid ,shameless behaviour.

Is it really ?All children ask questions like “Why?”.When you ask them to do something they sometimes even  go further to ask “Why me ?Why not my sibling ?” Young ones are curious beings and seek to find meaning in their observations;”What is that ? “They also good listeners to the various sounds around them .They live more in the present moments using their eyes distinctly to identify things without much judgements. Everywhere and everything in their close environment interests them.

On this issue of childishness in adults, l noted that  the ancient religious teachings and the practices of meditation and yoga,all stress on the habit of listening more.The Bible talks about children as innocent beings who will enter heaven.Children unless taught otherwise play,laugh and embrace life fully.

What do you think now? Is being childlike in life a stupid and shameful character?Does it give you a more stressful life or more joy and friendliness?

My choice from now on is to be childlike in my interactions and intentionally acknowledge l really do not know as much as l think l do.l will be kinder to myself and embrace all life .l will enquire  about nature taking notice of all the natural beauty and creations that  surround me. Learning to ask the questions “Why”and “What and being joyful ,smiling and laughing more is by new childish attitude.
