Daily Quotes: Thursday thoughts

It’s more usual to say when the going gets tough, only the tough will get going. But I think there comes a time when there’s the need to have a change of direction.

We often expirience same things in out lives because we do same things. We have been tredding on one direction for far too long a time. It’s time to change angle, and see things in a different light. Maybe that’s all we need to get what we want😊.

I’m not trying to say that we should be quick in giving up and changing our course. I’m saying we should not be static but flexible and creative in devicing strategies that will help us in attaining our dreams.

Melodious Wednesday🎵🎶🎶🎼 : You are not alone

Don’t give up

It’s just the weight of the world
When your heart’s heavy
I… I will lift it for you

Don’t give up
Because you want to be heard
If silence keeps you

I will break it for you

Everybody wants to be understood
Well I can hear you
Everybody wants to be loved
Don’t give up
Because you are loved

Don’t give up
It’s just the hurt that you hide
When you’re lost inside

I will be there to find you

Don’t give up
Because you want to burn bright
If darkness blinds you
I will shine to guide you

Everybody wants to be understood
Well I can hear you
Everybody wants to be loved
Don’t give up
Because you are loved

This song motivates me alot whenever I listen to it. I know there’s my God who watches over me…..Who’ll break my silence, and heal my hurt.

Hope you all have a day blessed with love.

Remember You are loved

You are Beautiful (Part II)

Hit by the many waves of life, languishing in tears over loved ones gone, feeling broken due to broken trust, feeling helpless when in need of help…….are the one and one too many despairs and painful moods and feelings we often find ourself in daily. But all these do not amount or cannot be compared to the wonderful AND beautiful person that you are.

You, standing there, though with tears of pain lurking in your eyes, still have the power to make the decision and choice to live.

Lately, a lot has happened to me…. A lot both good and very saddening…. I have lost someone so dear to me. Someone so important in my life….And here I am again, starring into the deep vacuum left in my heart. Truth is, we gain, we loose. But no matter where you find yourself, the ultimate is, you are still standing….right there with an ounce of hope in heart♥. 

So in this season of thanksgiving, I choose not to stare at the confusion mix problems I have lying ahead of me. I choose to stare at the wonderful memories I have.

The creates place of investment is not in your assets. But in yourself. When you invest value into your life, you don’t need someone else’s approval of being the best. You know you are.

When I stumbled on this quote today, I learnt that happiness is not achieved from the outside but from the inside. Letting go, though it seems as the hardest decision to make, is the best. Because sometimes, holding on gives us more and more pains.

Let go of anything that makes you feel less worthy and start cultivating those things that add value to your life. You are beautiful, unique, different and loved.

It all depends on you how you want your Story to be told. Make it worth while.💚💛💜🌸

Be Different!!!

We live in societies where many grew up following already laid down believes and get into the stereotypical way of doing things. And once you find yourself following another course, there’s a problem with you. You’re simply being different.

It doesn’t matter how many people are involved in doing what “everyone does“, it suffices that you stand out different, singled out amongst many.

When I was growing up, I always had the passion to read Mass communication at the University. But I was found “ridiculous” even by my parents…. This sounds kind of awkward because parents are to be our number 1 source of support. But that wasn’t the case for me.

I found myself motivating myself to study what I wanted because there was no one to do so for me. It musn’t be about people!!!. Its not about pleasing people, doing what they want. Its about YOU. What your passion drives at! 

So its OK if you’re staring up that project and everyone’s telling you it makes no sense. To me, it makes more sense beacause everyone else is doing the ordinary but you are doing the extraordinary. Its a gem to be extraordinary🎆

I live in a country where employment upon completion of studies is as rare as water in a desert. The programme I so much desire to study was one hell of a profession which was pretty hard to get a job. It was a risk I took. But I followed my passion. 

Times when I felt the weight of fear on me with no one by my side telling me I did the right thing, I often burst into tears. Crying became the order of the day in my life at that point. Because, I felt standing alone. I never knew then that I was just being different!!!!

 So many thoughts ran through my mind. But I remained firm on my decission. And today, I reap the fruits of being persistent in my course! And chosen to be different.

Its risky to take up risks but it is worth it🌸Wherever we find ourselves, we should build and create. 

Opportunities will never step at your doorpost! You rather make creative steps towards them. 

If you find yourself in a broken situation, you build. You are special and wonderful just the way you are….

Love and cheers🌸💕

 Someone To Remember🌸!!

Life’s a journey and each day, we get to meet people of various socio-cultural backgrounds. One of the most important things I have learnt that exists between humans is “relation”…. And I begin asking myself, “how is my relationship with the people I meet?”.

Then, it gets dawn on me that, everything that has stood the test of time did because someone who’s worthy of trust was involved. Then I ask myself again, “I’m I worthy of someone’s trust?”

We live our lives, yet in the midst of so many people. At sometimes, we find ourself selflessly reaching out to help those in need. Our words, touch, encouragement, visits, sends out thousands of messages that “we care”…

Earlier today, I cross examined my life and asked myself questions on how I have added value to those around  me. We all have values, but its our duty to positively influence those around us…. “But again, why take so much pain to help others…its their live not yours”. Then, I noted:

People will remember you, not for the thousands of possesions you got, or numerous infrastructures you have built or amount of money you posses. But, for the little touch you gave when that person needed someone to hold. For the time you spent beside that person when all others fled. For the Kind words you utter when others  spoke words of mockery. This, is the greatest legacy ever!!!!

 Buildings and possessions and money will one day crumble or we’ll find ourselves lacking. But true act of kindness and love will stand the test of time. No matter how  that passes….people will remember you for the good deeds… Because, such acts are engrafted in the hearts of men.

So, I wanna be rich in my relationship with people…… Give a smile☺ to those in need and lend a helping hand🙋 to those who bleed of pain. There’s so much love in our hearts to share. 

For this great act, the reward seems so small but has an everlasting effect. The smile of thanks and gratitude that rests upon the face of the one you helped, goes such peace and satisfaction…

Nothing should stand as a barrier, limiting us from reaching out to people and being extraordinary in our services of love. Not race, not age, not gender, not nationality, not status!. We are all one, created by an all loving God who knows no discrimination.

I was so inspired today by a little girl I met. She’s five but has taught me the greatest of lessons in human relationship when she told me “.……..I want to help people, but my friends tell me I’m too small, I’d need to grow up, work and save alot before I do that! But I can help without money… Like I helped my friend when she fell!!…”

Happy Thursday 🌸💕💖!!!!

You fall, you rise

​The beauty of life, is not when we live a faultless one, and are always aware of what is to come. It is, when we don’t know what awaits us, yet we rise with so much courage to face it head on.

If we were to know, the happenings in our life time before it did, we wouldn’t realise how much courage we have when it happens. We fall, we make mistakes and at some point we feel rejected because of our thoughts and perceptions of things….

We try to start up something and it seems not going the way it should. The beauty in all these is, when you fall, you rise…
Its not a matter of how many times you get hit and knocked down, but of how many times you rise after each hit. Its not the amount of physical strength that matters, but of mind strength.
I have made mistakes in my life, I have fallen at several points. And sometimes the fall seem so deserving that you think you deserved it for not trying your best! But, your best, is not measured on your success. It is measured by your willingness to pursue what you want against all odds…

Its OK to many and why not all, if you follow the path they have chosen. This is because the majority have. And when you don’t take that path, we often become a subject of mockery. 

Remember there’s a better appraisal when we succeed amidst the knock out, the falls, the mistakes and failures. 

Little beginnings….

Have you ever desired to start a business, project, an orphanage, an NGO and thought to yourself that you can’t do it?? I have….. Many times…. I have had dreams and goals and visions that I really want to establish but I could not…. 

The lack of finance, the fear of being exposed to a competitive business atmosphere, the thought of not having sufficient and adequate training on business made me worry all the more. 

But I realised one thing, in life, we often look at the ” dream”, the goals, the visions we have set before us, but we forget we need a “step”.  No matter how big your dream is, it will never realise when you don’t make a step. It takes a step.

When I was climbing the stairs today, I noticed I had an aim to get to my room. I never wanted to take the stairs because I had a sprain…..but I had to…because that was the “only way”. And as I climbed, I learned and incredible lesson as I thought to myself:

Success is not how much wealth one acquires, rather, it is virtue, it is consistency in pursuing your goals. Success is believing that you can and that you are capable of doing what you want. That! is the power that drives you to your dream. To me, wealth is the end result of success….

 As I thought these through, I felt some inner peace and hope you do too….
