Midnight Motivations and Musings 80


It’s a known fact that happiness can’t be bought in any shop even if we have all the money in the World.

For sure we can buy all the good time there is to be had with our plenty money, all the material possession, but since the pursuit of happiness is neither bottled nor sold, a rich man can still be a most miserable human.

Happiness emanates from within and within is controlled by the state of our minds.

The right frame of mind is the one that we should definitely place our emphasis on because that is the secret to a peaceful life and to your inner glow.

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.Out of the silent breath

A deep sense of satisfaction

Of peace, I sense within.

As the Sun peeks to say hello

I am happy to embrace me.

What Is It All About?…

It’s Christmas Day in two days, but it’s been Christmas for longer than these days in my heart. Always something

I am grateful for all the lovely messages of Glad Tidings floating around cyberspace.

I am grateful for all the smiling faces and happy vibes that I see all around me in my neighbourhood.

I am grateful for provision and for the time spent with my loved ones. The children are on school break and it’s a beautiful time of laughter and squabbles.

I am grateful for the ”Reason for this Season, Jesus Christ” – the center of my gravity, my peace and redemption.

Christmas is not just about the bright lights, the gifts or the plentiful eating happening all around, but about the Birth of the Messenger of Peace and Love.

Indeed, we can experience bone deep peace and joy of Christmas in our lives, even beyond this time if only we look up and try.

Remember that it is the little things that makes the difference. What are you grateful for today?

Blessed Love and Peace to You and Yours. Merry Christmas.
