Ultimate Day

To win the game,

just remain in the game.

This is one quote I love to challenge myself with especially on a day like this. The weekend seemed to last forever and I thought it would never end. I watched movies all through and had a pleasant time.

Ultimate Monday

Then I woke up this morning feeling like it was still Sunday. I wonder if there are people out there that sometimes have same feeling. It’s going to be a promising week for everyone that believes it and stay in the game.

Shine On Monday

Hi everyone! It’s Monday again….Time to shine…Regardless do same everyday 💝 let’s plan our week, let’s create opportunities where it seems there’s none, whatever appears to look impossible or challenging…Have the determination to conquer it.

Challenge is a word we give to an experience in our life because we decide to.

Create opportunities, don’t create challenges for yourselves.

Face your fears boldly; work on it; make it your friend.

Discover your inner self and unveil the eagle in you.

Shine on Monday to glow everyday.

Sanctuary Seeker

Step onto the Foreland of the light

Negotiating the ultimate challenge

Image of the sacred hearts

Hung on walls of harbor

Ask and you shall receive

Written all over the domain

At last, sanctuary of my devotion

Behold I am here to keep my heart

In the safe haven where it belongs

Away from the perpetrators

Hidden from the vultures

To be a secret from the wicked stench

Concealed in the tabernacle of the unseen

I seek the power of immortality

For the heart to stay safe

The walls roared, the winds blew

I shivered in fear

The voice cracked like thunder

Return back whence ye came from

The sanctuary is for the mortal

Did you not see?

Look deeper

The hearts on the walls are the swords

Thine own heart shall live in thy body

Ye are born of a woman

Immortality reigns not here

The evildoers have been enslaved by the sword

Go back, use the word that has been created for humanity

It shall protect thy heart

Little Things That Matter In Life

What exactly  does it mean when that word LIFE is mentioned? It’s all about everything that surrounds us, that goes on in our environment, people, character, it encompasses everything that makes us human, both known and unknown. According to the Wikipedia, it says life is partially a process not a substance. Life is not a nightmare.

There are various things that matter in life which cannot be compromised, but I would like to lay emphasis on the little things that matter in life.

However take note that some of this little things are very important to some of us in our daily lives and cannot be underestimated. Little things that matter to you might be the greatest need in life for others or better-still for you-eddaz.

I met a guy once who told me that women matter a lot in his life, I asked why and his reply was that, women made him who he is, women love him for no particular reason and would go at any length to make him have every one of his needs. For me, it sounds kinda funny but it’s actually an essential little thing which turned significant in his life.

We need to take cognizance of this little things in out life, what are there values, how far have they journeyed with us. Writing matters to me but it’s of no relevance to some people, most important thing is it matters to me and I would love to explore it more.

“It has been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important”-The memoirs of Sherlock Holmes

For some of us little things that matter to us could vary from family, career, education, health, for some of us, it’s clothes, makeup kits, gadgets, flowers, sharing gifts, having get together functions, sporting events, watching movies, singing, name it….However how little it seems, the most important thing is it matters to you, so keep enjoying it, you might look back down memory lane and realise it was a life saver for you  or something bigger. If the things that matter in your life are totally wrong, then give up on it. We have to stop gaining pleasure from things that hurt people so bad.

For me little things that matter are gestures like opening doors for the elderly people, helping someone in need, a little smile goes a long way for me. ..Try to encourage little things in life such as sharing with the less privileged, a little assistance for the needy, kind words to people around you, keeping the environment clean, a little tip once in a while as sign of appreciation.

Challenge yourself today that henceforth each day or trice a week you will buy a plate of meal for someone in need, give out some of your old things, you never know who might be in great need of this things. Take note of your environment and do the needful.Go on a short trip, have fun…

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Warrior Became Daring

It was a mission that looked so impossible to fulfill,

In the aftermath of the initial battle that was fought,

He could not raise his arms in warfare anymore.

He was the greatest warrior, had been, but will he always be?

The multitude stood before him, faces that looked like thunderstorm, raging with fire, children cried out to him, arms stretched out to help him to his feet. He was their only hope.

The women walked out naked, daring him to bestow upon them the freedom they desired. He stood up, intensified by the crowd urging him, nudging him, he struggled to get up, he fought, he conquered, he set them free.

He joined his lover with intensified heat, locked her up in his bruised arms, and kissed her.

Be daring to conquer

Be daring to live up to the challenge

Be daring to claim what’s your’s!

Hi everyone, In regards to the three day quote challenge put forward by my friend Miraclegirlblog. Here comes the quote for Day 2 quote challenge.

A Quote by William Shakespeare

“A  friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts that you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow”

Good friends are hard to come by, if you have one as described by William Shakespeare- never let him or her leave, they are rare gems. They stand by you through thick and thin. If you don’t have one keep searching, don’t surround yourself with bad people all in the name of having a friend, it’s sure better to have none than having one bad friend.

A second Quote by Mark Twain

mark-twain

“If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything”

Tell the truth and be set free, telling lies gives one headache because you will have to keep trying to remember what you told the last time, at the end of it all you tell people different people different tales of same story just because you couldn’t remember what you told them previously.

A Third Quote by Mother Teresa

Mother-Teresa

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love”

Doing great things is everyone’s desire, to be well known and be able to make big impart on our community or generation, but it’s not for all, some can do small things with great love which will live marks of great love behind. Spread the love!

Stop Running From Your Shadow

In response to this week’s discover challenge –  I would like to share with others a piece of advice I received from someone back in high school.

“Stop running from your shadow”. She called me alone to say just that short sentence to me which I pondered on for a pretty long time without actually accepting the truth behind it.

Back in high school I was someone I would say was POPULAR without a particular reason, I just didn’t get it, I never understood the logic behind my popularity. I was a very simple, level headed lady in school, I loved to be alone but unfortunately for me people loved me, they wanted to be friends with me, they wanted me to lead them, guess what I hated all these with a passion 😏, I felt it was too much of a burden for me to carry, all I wanted was my peace, just a few friends, study and go home to my best friend (Television).

It was that way for me all through my years of studying, and until I got my first job, it was still staring right into my face, people wanted to be like me, listen to me, do as I do, seriously I never understood it. Until I met someone else again who told me to just be myself and face my fears. I sat myself down to review the path of life I had lived and was living, I realized that I had been lucky, I would have lost a lot due to my insecurity and shadow fear 😊😊

Now I can face my fears, I can face responsibilities, I realized I didn’t need to be best of friends with all these people but to be attentive to their feelings, now I talk to them, I listen, I don’t mind if they wish to do as I do, I love making people smile. My colleagues love to dress the way I dress, up to my hairstyle, and really I have more confidence now, I encourage them, I give them tips on dating and fashion, I have also learnt not to take things personally due to my emotions. The benefit of all this is that it has opened doors of opportunities for me. My accepting my shadow has promoted me to an upstanding individual. I’m blessed that it wasn’t too late for me to come to terms with it.

My piece of advice based on my pervious experience is to never run from your shadow.
