In A Nutshell…

It is said that patience is a virtue and that a patient dog eats the fattest bone. Unfortunately, these days, a patient dog barely finds any bone, not to talk of eating a fat one.

Look at those eyes, dogs

Walk Through…

Darkness, Light, Illumination

I have learnt
to stop fighting
the darkness
that pervades me

Rather,
I light this
little light of mine
and walk through it.

Crossing The Bridge

bridge, crossing, poetry

When crossing the bridge of difficulties

don’t forget your knapsack of determination

wear your best boots of hope

and your favourite pullover of faith

toss on a scarf of good attitude

cinch your belt of positive thoughts

with a compass of patience

you are set to go.

You start with you and end with you.

Tuesday Trickles – My Thinking Corner

picsart_11-08-05-13-451

It takes a lot of patience with yourself to recognize your faults and to own them.

It equally takes twice the humility to resolve that you’ll do better in the future.

Ultimately, it takes patience to master and improve on who you are and whatever it is that you are doing. Anticipating instant success in changes that concerns us only opens up our thoughts and attitude towards impatience and frustration.

May you not tire in running your race.

Think of those things that are currently troubling you and write them down.

Don’t try to focus on immediate solutions; just focus on getting those thoughts out of your mind and onto a paper.

Close your writing, go and do something rejuvenating, like taking a walk, calling a friend and having a bit of laughter, whatever works for you.

Give it a day or two, then pick up what you wrote and read it.

You will observe that writing it down helped to declutter your mind.

Secondly, putting it in writing brings clarity and possibly simplifies the matter and finally reading it gives your mind an opportunity to look at possible solutions from a more mind-liberated position.

Some short words of wisdom are sent in by Deb. Do take a peek. You learn something new every day.

Be happy.

Please bear with me if I’ve been tardy in responding to your comments or even visiting your site. This girl’s life has been on the fast track for several weeks now and with children back in school – the demands grew a bit more.

I’ll do my best to respond to your comments and to come visit asap.

Thank you, remain blessed and eat some cake 😉

Peace Be Still

Just wait it out
with the Lord
for the storm will pass
and after the storm
comes great calm

Below is my first just published 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.

 

Jacqueline writes from her heart on passion, pain, suffering, loss and LIFE. I have been incredibly moved by her poetry and I know I will return to “Out of the Silent Breath” again and again.

If you enjoy my works and would like to do so, you can fuel my creativity with a slice of cake or coffee😉
