Give, Hope, Love, Live

So many times in life we shy away from things because we have been hurt before, we shy away from the very things that we want most of all. The fear of disappointment can sometimes take over our need or want, hiding it into the oblivion and warping our perceptions. Those perceptions can often get thrown “helter skelter” and as we go on they get … Continue reading Give, Hope, Love, Live

Ubuntu in a Can

No I am not talking about the operating system, I am talking about an African saying that has been blown out by the Western world. What is the real Ubuntu? Pronounced as uu-Boon-too or uu-Bun-too. Ubuntu, also known as Unhu in other parts of Africa, is an ethical philosophy held by many Africans and now Westerners (First World) that focuses on how we treat one … Continue reading Ubuntu in a Can

I am a worthwhile person who deserves love, friendship and kindness

No I was not paid to say that Once upon a time I was chatting to one particular friend and it came about that the one word we said with incredible regularity was “sorry”.  We both did. It got so ridiculous that we just stopped one day and said “Right the next person to say THAT word gets to write a post of the others … Continue reading I am a worthwhile person who deserves love, friendship and kindness

F/H: Feeling stressed out?

Thanks FroggyWoogie for sending this one through to me! Picture yourself near a stream. Birds are softly chirping in the crisp cool mountain air. Nothing can bother you here. No one knows this secret place. You are in total seclusion from that place called “the world.” The soothing sound of a gentle waterfall fills the air with a cascade of serenity. The water is clear … Continue reading F/H: Feeling stressed out?

The Man in the Moon and the two worlds he watches over…

I am a full moon person, people who know me know that when it is in the sky I seem to morph into a verbally hyperactive nutter. How do I know it is full moon tonight? Because the whole day … Continue reading The Man in the Moon and the two worlds he watches over…

Mistakes and the funny side of life…

I have often pondered this question and each time I come to the two conclusions. Firstly life would be boring and secondly life becomes nothing. So often we can get so serious in life that we miss the funny moments that brings a smile to our faces, we stress so much that the wrinkles form in the wrong places like frown lines instead of laugh … Continue reading Mistakes and the funny side of life…

Christmas time every day…!

I woke up this morning and my first thoughts were of this song, scarily enough to the point that I was singing – scary because of how I am in the morning normally (give me my coffee and don’t talk till its done). I think everyone in the world over has heard this song, perhaps not the older versions or perhaps not the newer ones, … Continue reading Christmas time every day…!

One world, Learn it, Live it!

In any given week how many people comment on your blog that aren’t from your home country, who speak a different language to you or has a different religion to you?  In this new world of cyberspace the barriers that once were are demolished, we are more open to them and quite possibly subconsciously don’t see any difference between Joe Soap (apologies if this is … Continue reading One world, Learn it, Live it!
