Tuesdays Trickles #13… My Thinking Corner.

Every Tuesday, I share snippets of thoughts that I call ‘My Thinking Corner.’

I would like to invite you to participate. The challenge is quite simple.

Each Tuesday, share your very short snippets of positive, inspiring, motivating, health, spiritual, writing advice, clips, posts etc, that can serve as a prop to motivate others and simply add my link to your post.

I call it my thinking corner because, I actually take out a bit of time just to think through things, encapsulate my thoughts as much as possible and detoxify my mind. It helps give me clarity of vision and might help you too.

It might work for you in a different way, but the idea is to get the positive thoughts flowing.

Please send in your little thoughts. You never know whose life you might inspire.



  • The measure of our riches is in how rich we are in spirit. There are no buts about it! If we are not rich in spirit, no amount of material wealth will satisfy.
  • In the pack of rat’s during the rat race, it’s easy to forget that the competition is against your own competency and not someone’s own. You have to find your speed and push to break your own records.
  • You have to become a friend to have one yourself. If you are prickly and unfriendly, then it goes without saying and shouldn’t be a surprise that you will find none willing to bear such consistent sour disposition.
  • The power of thinking big actually starts with the sensible act of starting small.
  • If we fail to use the seasons of our lives as we should, there will come a time when we are in the Winter of it and the questions the season will ask is what you did with the Summer of your life.

Our Thinkers Thoughts came in from:

Stressed reading, stressed writing These words from Rosema are so short, yet sweet and pack’s  good dose of inspiration.

Feeling encouraged sometimes, it all gets too much, but a kindle of encouragement gets you some good ways.

Annette’s I like this post so many times. The candid thoughts and willingness to look at oneself is the only way to grow.

Free Spirit a brilliant thought said in haiku.

Words of wisdom are words that are succinctly said and truly are full of wisdom.

Inspired series  are you staring your fear boldly in the face?

Thank you to all the contributors. May these words take roots in our lives and may our harvest be bountiful 🙂

‘So, when will you share those nuggets of wisdom of yours?’

  1. It is true about the friend relationship. I learn to be a good friend and then expected good friendship in return. Learning to listen not just to respond but to try to understand what my friend is feeling. P.S I may have a comical expression on my face when I am listening but I swear I am not poking face :P.

    1. Let me use the opportunity to invite you to the Bloggers brunch that I am hosting over the weekend Saturday – Sunday. I believe it will be fun to mingle with others. The invitation is titled, It’s Brunch Party Time. I will send one out again tomorrow. My regards.


  2. I love the idea of setting aside a day for positivism and motivation! So often we forget that optimism can help our outlook and health I think 🙂

  3. Start small. I had created my photography web blog Roaming Urban Gypsy in 2012 and it just sat there. I felt I had to wait until retirement to start using it. I thought my only good photos would be ones from around the world but then I realized that I had to begin with the world I lived in now.

    I have been blessed with two digital cameras which I’ve yet to use so I mostly rely upon Samsung cell phone camera or my Samsung tablet camera. Both take very good pictures. One does not need the fancy camera equipment to begin. I don’t know If I will become a world famous photographer but right now I get a sense of accomplishment, satisfaction and pleasure every time I gaze upon my photos. New York City is filled with oodles of interesting sites and stuff. Never run out of creative material. I Love New York!! I Love Photography!!

    1. Well said. Sometimes, we keep putting off things in hope that tomorrow we will start it on a bigger scale. I am glad that you decided to start from the point where you are and take it from there and the satisfaction derived is priceless.


  4. It is in the storm that most of the growing is done. So when the storm next hits, ask God for the grace to see what He wants you to learn to come out stronger than before.
