If an uninvited emotion turns up and unleashes its torment, leaving you covered with aches and bruises, don’t despair. Amid the turbulence, God is preparing a path for your way out. Know that sometimes all good planning takes a longer preparation.
People say all sorts of things
Just to fill the void
I keep fiddling with my rings
Trying not to be annoyed.
Some are genuinely nice
While others are clearly not
They freely give advice
But I’m not easily bought.
My poor head is pounding
As the chatters continue
This fake smile is thinning
Though none takes the cue.
How sad if my end is here
Drowning in a mindless chat
It’s not death that I fear
But the fact of where I’m at.
I’d rather be lost in solitude
Having silence for company
Enduring with great fortitude
Away from chattery tyranny.
Being content with who you are, where you are and what you have.
Contentment is not about accepting a mediocre life. It comes from knowing that certain things are meant to be just so, in attaining true happiness.
Making progress, albeit rather slowly and too tiny to mention. A little something is better than nothing.
Chaos, problems and worries are staples of life. Try finding your inner peace and create the much needed sanctuary.
When empathy is present, you know you are (or trying to be) a decent human being. Don’t be hard on others because life is hard as it is.
Patience while going through a rough ride, with absolute faith that it will be just right at the end.
A mother to love for eternity.
Right now, my mum’s Alzheimer isn’t so severe, but as it progresses, brain shrinkage will probably turn us into strangers. So whenever we chat, I’d often express my love, so that if that’s the last thing she remembers about me, it’s going to be the girl who keeps saying ‘I love you’ to her.
A fit and healthy body with every single part functioning effectively; and well supported by a balanced emotion.
Waking up in the morning after a night time sleep…when you wouldn’t know if your final goodbye came a moment too soon.
A smile speaks a thousand words, mends a wounded heart and intensifies one’s beauty. The magic it creates is mystifying.
The purity of a child’s love that flows from the depth of his little heart. Together with its blend of freshness, hope and innocence, you’ll never feel the same about loving another…
Untie the emotional bind that’s slowing you down, by accepting an apology with an open heart. Moving on, never looking back.
Stuck in misery, the last thing you expected is a chance meeting with a total stranger…and a generous serving of kind words to heal the troubled soul.
Loving your child is given, but liking him as a person is a grand thing. Such a blessing it is to experience both, especially when some parents find the latter challenging.
