Don’t Despair

It lets the past hold you back.

It pushes today away from the strength to survive and persevere.

It robs the future of its hope and possibilities.

Fight! By Humble the Poet

This is your life, fight for it.

The book is a wonderful read so far. I am reading the truths that I think I need to hear from the variety of topics that are covered in 101 Simple Truths for a Better Life by Humble the Poet. Each of them is short, sweet, and impactful. Often, this genre does not enlighten us to profound truths that were the missing puzzle pieces preventing our lives from being more awesome They are really just some ideas that we know but forget and we need to be reminded of them again. Truth #72 Fight! was too good not to share:

What I Know for Sure

Is there any fact of life that you would have the comfort of knowing as certainly true? I recently read the book called What I Know for Sure by Oprah Winfrey. Naturally, right from the cover of the book, I put the question to myself: if anything, what would I say I did know for sure? After some thought, I realized that there were some facets of life that I would bet my bottom dollar on.

Struggle for Creativity

“I’m not very creative” doesn’t work. There’s no such thing as creative and non-creative people. There are only people who use their creativity and people who don’t. Unused creativity doesn’t just disappear. It lives within us till it’s expressed, neglected to death, or suffocated by resentment and fear. The only unique contribution that we will ever make in this world will be born of our creativity.

Lost and Found

Little by little, life settles into a pattern and sometimes I don’t even realize the road I am travelling on. Then, one day, something just shakes me awake. I open my eyes and see what’s become the norm and wonder how I kept walking down this path so far, so blindly. I see the power that this new unwanted place has over me. Where did I go so wrong? How did I get here? The last I remember, I felt good and hopeful about where I was going and this was not that path.

Hotel Like Home

Travelling and seeing new places is wondrous, enjoyable, and insightful – with a lot of physical activity for me. But it can be hard on the routine and rest for some of us. As much as I wish I could have an awesome day as a tourist and still be zapped back to my own bed and bathroom at the end of the day, that is not about to become a reality. I was never a traveller in my younger years but, recently, I have enjoyed exploring. Personally, I do not know anyone who gets home sick as fast as I do. Continue reading “Hotel Like Home”

I Have Today

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending. – Marie Robinson

Even if you cannot change your past, everyday is an opportunity for you to change how to carry forward the past, what you make of it, and how you let it affect yourself. Those opportunities could be just as good towards changing your future.
