Most times, finding out who we are beneath the physical attributes which encase our being is the most difficult and profound journey that we can ever embark on, yet self-discovery is the most rewarding journey of all.

The difficulty experienced by most while on this path is the ability to turn off all the outside noise and to search within. To shut their eyes to all the external fluff and see through the eyes’ of their soul.

Sometimes, we’ve got to cut off a lot of the mindless activities that we crowd our mind with because they tend to drown out our inner voice and leave us with nothing.

Sometimes, we’ve got to simply breathe and learn to live.

A Click A Day Series…

It’s been on my mind to start this photo practise series and I have procrastinated long enough. I literally fell in love with taking photographs and discovering not just new things from the side of the lens but new things about myself as well.

Like is aptly said, practice makes perfect and each day I’ll present a random shot taken in the bid to perfect my photography skills.

Please feel free to send in your constructive criticisms on how to improve (I am a big girl and can take it – maybe just bawl a bit in the bathroom, but that’s okay 😉

I also welcome you gladly to join me anytime you are able to do so.

Maybe, as time goes on, there’ll be a 30 day’s prompt/theme that can be followed for each month.

For today, I took a snap of this framed quote that I saw somewhere and it rightly expresses my thought.

Now, let me go and get my camera 🙂

♦ You have to believe in yourself and your talent. You must believe that small fact with your entire being.

♦ That little faith that you have in yourself is not just a catalyst for change but keeps you going even when doubt begins to set in.

Lovely nuggets of integrity come in from Lady Cee and words of wisdom from Deb Glover. You need to check these out.

I hope these words add some value.

Regards,

Jacqueline

Let Go and Live!…

Crime, Blood, Offence, Misstep, Face, Eye, Black

Until we let go

of all the hatred

and embrace

the light of love

DARKNESS

will remain a companion.

It’s not every day that I get to feel like a star *I’m winking* 😉

I’ve been granted a wonderful interview by the talented, awesome blogger chic, Mandi, and as the very first interview in her interview series, she did a splendid job.

I humbly urge you to peek in for a few seconds through this link while I go strut my stuff a little bit. Hey! Come on! A girl has to love herself a bit you know 🙂

Thank you.

Midnight Motivations and Musings # 64

When you are committed to doing something, you wait for no one, especially when it’s something that you are meant to do by yourself and for your well being.

Don’t sit waiting for love or life to find you. Go out and get the life and the love will follow.

Sometimes, in order to move on, we need to cease waiting and get going.

Midnight Motivations and Musings 58…

1460444136149[1]

There are times that I have been asked how I can prove that there’s a God and I have always responded with the same quote above.

God is God all by Himself. I cannot limit him by trying to define him in the human context, neither can I constrain his Supreme presence because I seek for him to appear before me so that the doubting Thomases can believe that he exists.

I would rather believe deeply in God and live my life serving him through my fellowship with others than to spend a thousand years drifting in disbelief.

Every day, I see God. I see him in the gurgling laughter of a little child. I see him in the brilliance of the shining Sun, I see him in the birds that roam free and feed on the fat worms of the earth, I see him in the flowers that bloom in glorious colours, I see him in the love of my children and husband, I see him in everything that surrounds me.

Do you see God?

Midnight Motivations and Musings # 54…

1460094118485[1]Life lived dancing to the tunes of misery wears out the soul living it.

Yes indeed, our days are not always smiles and sunshine, but the truth is that misery and negativity are barely a head’s turn away and once you give it room, it becomes a permanent tenant and a difficult one to evict.

A lot of  times when I am feeling down, I might brood for a while, but with training my mind to shut off the negative raps, I endeavour not to stew in it by getting engaged in little things that will uplift my mind and take the focus off me.

Not the easiest thing to do at times, but the alternative is worse.
