Mental Boost

“If anyone makes you feel less than you actually are, less important, less cool, less awesome.

If in any way they make you question your value in life at the innermost part of your being, or when you are alone,

then they need to go. Simple.

You need every mental second you have to think of amazing things and dwell on amazing people.”

In Twenty Days

cropped-pexels-photo-1070383.jpeg

“In twenty days, the crowded Earth became as empty as Mars.

In this time, the moon became blood, and the sand became red. 

For the one I knew so well,  became the one I know no more. 


The thoughts I used to daily think, are now the thoughts I think no more.

The feelings I used to dwell on, are now the things I feel no more.

The plans we then did make, are plans I have no more.


For in just twenty days, the population of earth was traded for the wild storms of Mars.

The false comfort of ‘friendship’ turned into the 

Magnificent brilliance and hum of a truly silent planet.”

Ego My Dear

Many are the mental struggles of mankind. 

Daily we fight wars for and against our fragile egos.

For if we will just accept that we feel what we feel, and we feel it how we feel it,

without first putting up an act or pretense,


We can therefore begin the game of loose and keep.

We can then dispose of that we must dispose of, and build on that which must be built.

We can then correct that which needs be corrected, 

and discard that silly thing called ego and pride.

Human and Spirit

Did you know that you are Spirit that lives in flesh?

If you follow the flesh, and  simply follow the humanity you feel, it is  risky. 

For the human you are seated within is proud and always wanting. 

The human never stops needing. 

It never gives up on its pleasures. The human you are in is truly ‘only human’.


Yet, the spirit that you are has great control.

It possesses self discipline. It is ruled by conscience.

It knows morale and it is eternal. The spirit you are will continue after time.

The spirit you are can step over the human and become superhuman, supernatural!

Be the spirit, not the flesh.

Birthdays are a blessing. 

For they point us towards realizing those ones we adore.

They make us stop in time to appreciate the wonders of being created for a purpose.

For at one moment God said let there be Sandy, and then there was.

Happy birthday to me! I am growing cooler! 😉

True Laughter

Have you laughed? I mean really truly laughed.

You know the type that starts from your feet making your toes curl. That one that travels up your legs making them shake like a leaf in the wind.

That laughter that boils up in your belly like steam in an enclosed space looking for a way out. That one that literally causes you pain until you open your throat and let it all out and open.

That type of laughter that bursts out like a gush of wind producing a sound which for that moment in time brings with it an amnesia of all the things causing you pain and worry. 

So tell me. Have you ever truly laughed?

New Skin By Samuel Balyejusa

“People do not resist change because they do not like it.
We love change, we get new haircuts every now and then, we change our clothes daily and we are always eager to try the newest restaurant in town.
People resist change because they don’t understand it.

It is paramount that we learn to embrace change because that is the very essence of learning. Without learning, we stagnate only for the ever changing world to catch up with us and force us to change; usually under much less favorable circumstances.

Take the steps to embrace change and avoid being forced to change as soon as what you know is no more.”

En~Courager

“Sometimes, we already know all the lines. Believe me, we know. 

We know that our suffering will not last for a lifetime. 

We know that our struggles will end someday soon.

We know that tomorrow may truly be better.

We understand that a happy disposition is better than a sad one.

We realize that our pain will heal and fade away.

Yet,

We still need someone to say to us ‘don’t worry. don’t be sad. don’t cry’. We still want to hear the words ‘everything will be okay’.

Hearing the phrase ‘tomorrow will be better’ awakens our spirit and gets us on our feet.

having someone say to us ‘Do not be afraid’, ‘be of good cheer my friend, my brother, my sister, my neighbor’ never gets old. 

Finally when they say to us ‘it is well with you’, our hearts begin to soar in the clearer skies of relief.

Believe me, this world can never tire for an oversupply of encouragers.”

Comparisons

bnw boy

“The world is balanced. All things have an Order.

Another may naturally have five of the things you wish you also had. Wealth, status, beauty, friends, intelligence…

However, you may hold a thousand other things and potentials that they pray dearly for.

To each his own, and his own is enough for him to fulfill destiny.

Never get caught in the web of petty comparisons.

All you need in life has already been deposited within you.”

~ by Sandra C. Obiora


Question for today: Do you compare yourself with others? why or why not? ~ You are welcome to share your ideas with me 🙂

 

Staircases

“Going up and down staircases is metaphorical for life. For descending and spiralling down in failure and sin is easier and a far cry from the difficulty of climbing up to the zenith. Taking one difficult and mostly agonizing step at a time is the battle.

Now, if on the way up we choose to hang on to, or carry with us baggage, we must be ready to spend a while on the way up, or handle the mediocrity that comes with neither going downwards or heading upwards.”

Kicking Thorns

“When you decide to fight against the wind, to kick against the thorns, to swim against the waves, or tell the thunder to be silent, you fight a lost battle. 

You simply need to read the waves, trace your fingers along the thorns, embrace the joyous assault of the wind, and listen to the many words of the thunder. 

For only in this manner can you realize the contradictory beauty of life. The true essence of our different realities.”

~ Sandra C. Obiora
