In A Nutshell…

Truth, Lies, Justice, Quotes

If you are happy telling yourself lies, then you must stay happy when others tell you lies.

Stand and Resist!

Image result for images of breaking the chains
Resist the voices of dissension
that say you can’t even
when the voices come from you.
Resist the oppressing pressure
of the ruling class, if not
you’ll no longer have a voice.
Resist and stand your ground,
for you’ve got nothing to lose,
but everything to gain.

Lessons From The Stubborn One – Mundane Monday

Mundane Monday Challenge is created to find beauty in almost everything.

The challenge is simple. Find beauty in everyday mundane things, capture the beauty and upload the photographs.


Looking at this shrub that jutted proudly and stubbornly out of the half cemented, sandy patch brought a lot of thoughts to my mind in relation to human life and I’ll share a few:

My mother always says that “when the beat to the dance changes, you change your rhythm or you are out.”

When life gets uncomfortable one just doesn’t give up, but they look for other ways of turning the discomfort into a comfort zone. That’s the only way to survive, for surely harsh times will come, but might not endure.

When others are planting shallow roots, take the extra time to make yours several inches deeper, because a strong foundation withstands more turbulence.

Sometimes, when our circumstances change, we should take our eyes away from the immediate picture that doesn’t look too bright and focus on the strength within as well as the bigger picture ahead of us. Like is said back home “that food that is hot right now, will eventually cool down, for no condition is permanent.”

It’s amazing how a small, jutting proud piece of grass made me philosophical, but what is the alternative to standing one’s ground?

Giving up?

That’s not an option!

Have a great week.
