Midnight motivation and musings

Midnight Motivations and Musings # 89


The fastest way to take away the joy from your everyday living is to consistently spend your time comparing your life to someone else’s.

Set your own goals and stay focused on them.

Always ask yourself why you are doing what you are doing? What’s the primary purpose?

That way you don’t run the risk of drifting like a used paper napkin that floats in the wind, from one track to the other.

When you stay on track, you get to your goal post, but drifting will find you aimless, stressed and not getting to the desired destination.

Like my people would say back home “after the race, we count the miles.” Don’t exhaust yourself and run the race only to find at the end that you ran aimlessly.

P.S. You are invited to our monthly blog party this weekend. It’s fun and you get to meet fantastic folks:-)

Below is my first Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.

Midnight Motivations and Musings # 31


At some point in time every one fails in one thing or the other that they strive to achieve. It only becomes failure when we refuse to rise up from the debunked attend and forge ahead.

The worst disservice that you can do to yourself, is to muck about and wallow in that sense of defeat hanging like the Sword of Damocles over your head.

It will take you to the cleaners, squeeze you for all it’s worth, leave you dirty, down and out.

I tried to say the quote in a humourous way, but I am sure you get the message. If you give him an inch, he will take a whole yard.

Get up, dust off yourself and crawl along.

Need I say more?

Our wishful thoughts on the things that we hope for, will only remain buried, wishful and wasted unless we begin to act on them.

The fear of failure is the greatest failure in itself. Be afraid, but do it!

You just might surprise yourself.
