Forgiveness is one of the world’s greatest mysteries, one that seems to always come with a short answer “just accept and move on”. Hah! Yeah right… seriously? Just accept it and move on? You have to be kidding people! After hearing that one liner so many times I stopped asking others how they came to forgive another. I started to realize that each of us … Continue reading Is forgiveness really possible?
I don’t know about you, but I suffer from the Winterassgrowth disease, yip you know the one where you get all cosy, eat more, less exercise and just be, that one. Much like a squirrel storing its supplies for hibernation our bodies tend to hit this mode, anything we eat it keeps some back in “supplies” to keep our bodies warm. So if you are … Continue reading Working winter to enjoy the Summer

Its the first day of spring, woke up this morning and the flowers were out, the sun was shining and the radio said “Be warned there is another massive cold front on the way. Sunday will be high seas, winds are expected to reach 120km per/hr with hail and snow.” Good morning sunshine, weather is so much like life that it astounds me. Sometimes we … Continue reading It’s a beautiful day!
Ever walked into a room and there up on the wall sits a photo or painting that is skew. Does it drive you nuts or do you not care?
Don’t know about you but it drives me insane. Perhaps this is just the Virgo in me coming out but I feel forced to correct it with haste. That said I can’t always reach it without finding a ladder first, sometimes they are just too high up for my tallness.
Now lets say you didn’t correct it, you are aware of it and you have a whole bunch of friends over. The whole time everyone is laughing and having fun you are slightly unsettled. Your mind keeps drifting back to that skew picture up on the wall keeping you from enjoying the moment fully. You laugh but it isn’t fully. You smile but it isn’t fully. There is something else on your mind.
If you had accepted that the painting is skew and had peace with the fact that, no matter what, it will remain like that would you be able to enjoy the party more fully? Would you be able to be fully “in the moment”?
Music is my world, this song has been playing quite a bit recently … for some reason my player likes it a lot so I torture you with it now as well. Collective Soul can never be torture though Has our conscience shown? Has the sweet breeze blown? Has all the kindness gone? Hope still lingers on. I drink myself of newfound pity Sitting alone … Continue reading The World I know
I don’t mean only men but rather just the human race, saying humans or people just didn’t sound right to me. In all honestly I have avoided the local news for many reasons, Zimbabwe’s fake talks – not one Zimbabwean believes it to be true or useful. They still have their 7pm curfews. They still fear their lives every moment of every day. They still … Continue reading Men with small …. brains
Father’s day doesn’t mean much to me, I haven’t had a father since the age of 5, he killed himself. No, not in the normal sense of “Suicide” but rather through continuous alcohol abuse, he was a raging alcoholic. He came from a long lineage of addicts. My grandparents on his side, also both deceased, were drug addicts addicted to painkillers and alcohol. He grew … Continue reading The Father and the life he gave me
Fight for what you want, for what is right with your whole heart and soul, and never stop believing in yourself… Try to be best ‘Cause you’re only a man And a man’s gotta learn to take it Try to believe Though the going gets rough That you gotta hang tough to make it History repeats itself Try and you’ll succeed Never doubt that you’re … Continue reading You’re the best!
I do not trust media reports at the best of time, the amount of true reality in them is always warped I feel to agenda’s. Zimbabwe is in chaos, retaliation killings are going wild, no one who voted for the opposing party MDC is on the hit list. So the ship containing weapons destined for Zim is now docked in Angola, why is this ship … Continue reading Why I am sad for Africa
