Happy new year

Happy new year!

I guess in every sense of the word it is indeed a new year for me as a blogger. Today marks my fifth year on WordPress. I haven’t been ‘actively’ around in the last 2 – 3 years, life has happened, life is happening and I am sure it will carry on happening for a long while yet. But before I get carried away to the land of reminiscence permit me once more to say, happy new year again!

The last few years have been filled with so many lessons to learn and many more to unlearn. As 2020 arrived, I had only one request on my heart, to have perfect vision. To see the obvious, to decipher the hidden and to lead my heart to better days. January is almost over, there are lessons to be reviewed and thoughts to be weighed.

Lesson one: stop overthinking. When something happens, accept your responsibility in the sequence of event, admit the culpability of others involved. Overthinking: trying to decipher others intent without speaking to them, often this leads to gossip or to wish you could get back at them. Determine: to take the lessons learnt or steps discovered forward. To see people as humans who are either whole, broken, insecure, arrogant or just plain toxic.

Lesson two: accept that confidence and self- confidence are not necessarily the same things. Accept that many people don’t necessarily know the difference between both terms. Acknowledge that most people in today’s world consider the extreme of confidence i.e. arrogance to be the confidence. knowing one’s weakness in an area is not a limitation in all areas. It is self-confidence to know one’s weakness, to accept the implications of this weakness, to decipher if they’re changeable or not. This limitation should not drive you to over-compensate in other areas. Everyone has weaknesses. Simply decide: to put in your best at all times, to continually learn, to grow your strengths and develop your weaknesses were possible. Determine: not to base your sense of worth on your performance in front of others, you’re an individual not a character in a play.

It is confidence to know when to walk alone and when to walk with another.

In 2020, Balance is key.

Goal: to always see the woods for the trees.

To know what counts each day, each season and to max out the counts.

Happy new year again!

What have you done with your year so far?



My path – 2016

To walk my own path,

To bare my cross shaped by choices,

Is to live with dignity.


Happy new year folks that’s my new year resolution to walk my own path and none others.

Everyone has a cross and until you live their lives day-in-day-out you’ll never realise the weight/burden of it.

Written in response to the daily prompt – A brand new you effective tomorrow.

Tomorrow you get to become anyone in the world that you wish. Who are you? You can choose to be anyone alive today, or someone gone long ago. If you decide to stay “you” share your rationale.


Tree of songs


stand by the door

of my room wondering if this is 

what it should be like: loud voices, whispered words.

I search for the proof of your love in every word, in every gesture.

And with the passing of time I realise I’m banging my head against the wall

it’s hopeless. So today I am running from you, from us, from everything.

It’s time to let it go, time for a new adventure of a lifetimeI hope we stay

forever young, I hope the light guides usI’ll speak life each day just like

the storyteller recommended. So until we meet again I’ll fix my eyes

on the light-house; bury my pain and upset in the  water.

Until we can say hello again, I’ll take the time

to pen the story of our life,

so one day we might

read it together 

laugh and





memories when 

we come back Home.

When we get to feel better dancing into a new year.

This was my attempt at writing a post from the  songs of that made my year.

Do you know the artist, do you like any of them?

Happy new year folks, you guys have been a blessing.
