I love all the things that this crazy world brings, despite the ups and downs of

life…it’s great to be alive. When you feel like giving up, remember there’s always hope for a new day, a new dawn and a brighter tomorrow.
With that said, life is an adventure and how best we roll with the punches, dictates how we progress and stay afloat in a sea of emotions filled with subtleties, highs and lows, disappointments and rewards.
There’s no one who passes through this life without dealing with challenges, failures and disappointments…it’s all a part of living. When we make a conscious effort to block out the “noise” and find the lessons in every situation, it’s only then can true growth and maturity occur. We are born winners….all of us. It’s up to us to realize our worth and channel our power to yield the benefits that this life has to offer.
Over the past few months and weeks I’ve learnt valuable lessons that cannot be taught at any institution of higher learning. I learnt about people and the ins and outs and nuances of this dance of life. I wrote about this in my first book and yet I am still learning every day. “We can’t control people or the outcome of events in our life…any more than we can control the weather.” Food for thought. What you can do is control how you react and how you internalize the situations in order to chart the way forward in a positive and constructive manner. It’s difficult but your mind is a very powerful thing and you can condition it to bring about your desired outcome.
I’ve never been one to give up and not have my say, but I am learning that sometimes you have to pick your battles. No matter how strongly you disagree with someone or something, sometimes there is nothing you can say or do to change that person’s mind or the outcome of events…no matter how hard you try. It’s just not in the stars.
Everyone is unique and I’ve learnt that their brain/mind works in unique ways that’s different from anyone else on this planet…you can never really wrap your head around the reasons why a person may say or do something that you don’t particularly like or understand…and believe me when I say I’ve tried! That’s just life. We are all created differently and we have to find a way to accept each other’s differences, even if it’s family, spouse or friend.
Our conscience is the driving force for our freedom and peace of mind. Some of us have a bit more where that is concerned and others are able to ignore the questions within. At the end of the day, there’s only one judge and time will tell what we can or cannot live with.
Many things are happening in the background…some good, some great and some are just things that require introspection in order to get to the next level in our lives…they are those unspoken things that awakens an inner desire to search our souls for the answers and for the ultimate resolution to our fears and longings in time to come.
At the end of the day, what is important is that you listen to the voice within…you hold the answers to the questions you crave….think deeply, meditate and pray to the One and only God above…you would soon realize that everything and everyone else are just temporary substitutes.
