HAPPY NEW MONTHS FOLKS.
I know I havn’t been around a lot, life happened and that’s all I can say.
I have missed you guys but will do my best to read your blogs as often as possible.
Below are a couple of quotes that I hope to draw inspiration from through this month.
This one isn’t optional, I love my rest.
Same thoughts as above, if Rome wasn’t built in a day then ….
Every dog will have it’s day and that’s for certain. The only problem is making sure the dog hasn’t lost hope of that day ever happening.
One step at time, one step at a time…. am climbing my mountains with Jesus by my side.(who watched kids praise?)
And this is to remind me that my little girl is the most precious person I will ever be privileged to impact any ‘life lessons’ to too.
I found the above quote on Stella’s blog and it really struck me, in the past I had never given much thought to the reasons behind lies. I know the quote probably doesn’t cover all cases, but I think it explains the psychological process behind most lies including those of an inherent liar.
I am sure we all know the impact of lies on us and other parties involved so I am not going to write about it. However it is worth remembering that whatever motivates the lie gains momentum with each falsehood, as we lose trust in the strength of our voice.
Isn’t it amazing the number of interesting nuggets you can find in a story, a comment and even in regular daily activities. Today I would love to share two of such findings with you, for each quote I have included two different photos to give two different perspective. Would love to hear your thoughts on them:
The first is a line taken from a short story by an awesome writer and fellow blogger K Rawson. The story is titled The Things You Lose.
Though the line was written to depict the realities of dementia, I find the line also reflects a life lived mainly in hindsight. A situation where we feel everything good has been lost either intentionally or by accident. Until I read that line it never occurred to me that perhaps those things/persons that got left behind always stay perfect in our minds because we never fully interacted with them. We never got to grow and ride out the ever changing currents of life with them, thus we are not faced daily with their shortcomings or seemingly diminishing/changing value in our life hence why they stay perfect. We also never get to see it or them experience the same changing perception of who we are to them. We view them only from one perspective which is what I have tried to show with the images in the quote.
The second one is from a comment made by another blogging friend Elmowrites, she’s an amazing writer and I am sure you will enjoy reading her work.
Our fears are only as big as our minds can comprehend. For example an individual who is scared of heights might have a panic attack when asked to climb the empire states building. The building represents death, accidents, dizziness – these are all juxtaposed on the building by his mind. Same individual loves animals and has a thirst for the great outdoors, thus goes on a safari and has no fears when deadly animals stand at close range to him/her. It’s all in the mind.
What do you think?
Don’t run life on a deficit account.
Be accountable to yourself, be accountable to God.
The picture above and quote was inspired by an excerpt from the post true accountability written by beautybeyondbones. A writer who is inspiring the world through her life’s journey and recovery from anorexia.
~For every positive step you take on life’s journey, for every goal achieved have a “me” celebration. Be your own cheer leading squad.~ Creatingahome
Be happy, stay positive.
Do a little dance, you might just feel better afterwards.
I have been nominated by Louise at the storytellers abode to take part in the three days quote challenge. Thank you so much for nominating me, Louise is a spectacular writer and inspiration, do click on the link above to read some of her work.
The above quote is my favourite life lesson simply because life constantly changes and I believe the only way to stay sane is to stay true to who you are. You can’t change what’s out there but you can change you.

1) Thank the person who nominated you.
2) Post a quote each day for 3 days.
