Quotes For You

Just A Little Thought

Jacqueline's Quotes, Pain, Let go

We can’t sweep our sad moments under the rug just to pretend that they don’t exist and then heap happy platitudes on top of them.

To heal we must bring them to light. Air them out. Cry. Shout. Do what you need to do. But don’t swallow them.

That’s no way to fix what’s broken. Hiding them away is like putting a plaster on a festering wound. It’s not being courageous to bottle it all up, rather it takes courage to seek resolution.

If you are hurting in any way, seek for a reliable, supportive person to talk to, if you have no one to talk to, free write it all out even if it’s anonymously and send it out there.

Be well.

Midnight Motivation and Musings 107


Change is difficult to embrace most times because of the fear of the unknown and this fear leaves us clinging to old habits, experiences and even harmful situations that we should let go of.

When we fail to let go and release these things that we need to leave behind, we are unable to create room to receive better experiences.

Sometimes bad experiences hold us captive more than we even know.

They subtly dictate and become the benchmark for our future exploits and endeavours, that we inadvertently shortchange our lives with experiences which are in the past.

As life is a culmination of experiences, we shouldn’t allow the mishaps of years gone by steal into our hope for the future, that’s simply the way the known and unknown enemy operates by reminding you of all the areas in your life where you failed so that you shouldn’t expect to succeed.

Even if you failed in so many things, there’s a chance that you’ll succeed in this one, if only you stay the course and stop looking at that old syllabus that didn’t quite work.

Out of the silent breath

Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha’s poems portray images that stare us right in the face. Images of love, joy, death, pain, challenges, violation, and freedom. She writes in a language that’s rich in imagery, earthy, honest, vulnerable, yet full of the promise of hope, of loving and of Grace. A collection of light and dark soulful prose.

Midnight Motivations and Musings #8…


The story of humanity is riddled with everyday people whose lives become testimonies and inspirations for others to arise from their pits of trouble to sit in victory atop the rubble.

It’s up to you to make your story the beauty around your neck and use it as a propelling force that will bring light into your life and the lives of those around you.
