The Dilemma of waiting

The dog…. O the dog…
You are the symbol of waiting.

They said you ate the fat bone
But only because you waited.

And I dare ask O dog

Is it because other dogs were blind?
Or because they were generous?

Patience is not complacency
Waiting responsibly is patience.

When you till the ground and sow
Then you wait for the harvest.

When you do the needful
Then you wait for success.

The “patient dog” has long been misunderstood.

He has been labelled patient
But could have been the runt of the litter.

To wait or not
To be patient or not

That’s the dilemma of today
The tragedy of the choice.

Today’s newness and what it offers

I wonder how far or fast you can go today if you carry yesterday’s burdens and woes into today. Today has enough problems of its own waiting patiently for solutions. So why tie yourself down and then complain that you are not moving fast enough.
Let the worries and frustrations of each day end with it and begin each day on a brand new slate.
Today is a new day, the first of April , 2016; there’s only one of today in existence why not make it count?
Joy is a choice, to be happy also is a choice ,to be swallowed up in sadness is within you sphere of decision making, to feel lost and frustrated always is also a choice. I am not saying don’t feel sad or depressed or frustrated at times , of course those will come. I am saying don’t let the failures of yesterday deny you of today’s joy, don’t let the fears of last month deny of this month’s adventure , don’t get stuck in a cycle of pain and worry and so forget to live, or to fight for the things that matter.

Start today and this month with a mindset to “put away the ranger and be the king you were born to be.”
Live a conscious life today and this month not on cruise control and see yourself blossom and become more than you thought you can be.

What nobody will tell you about life #2

After the last post ,my friend and editor thought that there was still more to say. And so she penned this as a continuation of the last post. Enjoy

Nobody will tell you to look at both sides of the coin before making decisions, so you can be responsible for your actions

Nobody will tell you to take intelligent risks; for you may just succeed,. Beacuse if you don’t try you have already failed.

Nobody will tell you to be straight forward,you only need to be a victim of  cheating to realise the virtue in being straight forward.

Nobody will tell you not to be envious of anything,you only need to get that same thing and  see the work it takes to be happy with it.

Nobody will tell you to dream, you only need to wake up one day and see yourself a product of another person’s dream.

Nobody will tell you not to judge a book by its cover, till you walk away from your blessings.

Nobody will tell you to leave your comfort zone, till you find nothing working as you planned.

Nobody will tell you that not all you were taught is as it should be,it also had the teacher’s perspective to it

Nobody will tell you that he who asks shall always recieve,it only depends on what you ask and how.

Nobody will tell you that in the quest for survival,the process may never be what you are used to.

Nobody will tell you to take care of yourself while you care for others ,they assume you already do

Nobody will tell you that life is not just about money, until you have a problem money cannot solve.

Nobody will tell you to be open to blessings for it is not enough to give and not have the spirit to recieve

Nobody will tell you “your cross is too heavy”; let me carry it for you because everybody has his/hers.

Nobody will tell you “I am always here for you”,do as you please. Very soon you will know that man is a fickle minded specie.

Nobody will tell you;’you have done well’, you only have to be satisfied with your effort.

Nobody will tell you to love yourself no matter what,till you find people who want to be you.

Nobody will tell you to walk tall,till your seeming humility takes food off your table.

Nobody will tell you to be sure of what you want,till you realise you were only living out someone else’s dream of your life.

Nobody will tell you to have time for those you love,you will only retire from work one day  and find out you are all alone.

Nobody will tell you to give,you only need a moment of consideration to see who is willing to share with you.

Nobody will tell you to play,till you realise you are a stranger to those you truly hold dear.

Nobody will tell you to laugh,till you realise how isolated you are in your bunble of seriousness.

Nobody will tell you to dance and be swooned till you see how much of life you were missing.
