negative thoughts will strive to keep in, but I’ll strive harder to keep them out.
What’re your today’s good vibes?
Every day, we become the choices that we make. Our habits, our routines are the backbone and foundation of who we are and who we choose to become.
Simple routines can shape your life in an amazing way.
Tune in let’s talk about the Power of the Hour.
If I took the experiences
that life handed me deeply to heart
I would have committed suicide.
I am glad that I didn’t
because that’s a cowardly way out.
I see these experiences
as the hand of fate steering me in a direction.
I realise that life is hard and not fair
that life can be a bitch (forgive my French)
but the Spirit of Hope and Fight in me
tells me that new every morning
is a gift from the Lord and
I must unwrap this gift of the day
with utmost gratitude, grace, and belief.
This poetry is my contribution to Oneta’s quote for last Writers quote challenge prompt:
“I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.” Helen Keller
Interestingly, Helen Keller’s quote reminds me of a saying that my parents were fond of ‘anything worth doing is worth doing well.’
This principle ‘to give it my best,’ has stuck with me in the little and the big things and especially now as I wisen up each day. I may fail in my attempt, but I am certainly going to keep doing it until I get it right.
I find that chores that used to bore or irritate me in the past have ceased to be so because of my approach and positive attitude towards them.
I’ve been training my mind to see the beauty and the positive sides of even the most mundane task and the interesting thing is that my views and perspective keeps expanding by the day.
Even the weekly task of cleaning the house that I do with the kiddos, we turn up the music and jive to the beats while dusting and polishing and the chore just breezes by 🙂
Positive energy can make a lot of difference.
The Writer’s Quote Challenge is a weekly blogging event. Either make up your own sayings or use a quote from a famous author that you find gives you inspiration. Each Thursday, a hostess will post the prompt and all you have to do is participate.

For me, it is a conscious effort to make and reflect on positive affirmations each day, so that I don’t get drowned in the sea of negative vibes and occurrences which pervades today’s life.
Not that I don’t get affected by the rotten stuff that life tosses, but I try to deal with it and move on. Worrying, adds no value. You can’t keep carrying an umbrella hoping that rain will fall, when the sun is shining brightly 😉
If I choose to dwell on the constant personal negative challenges that have stared me in the face, not only will I be swamped with complete disbelief in the wonder of life, but my life would be a total mess.
I try to mindfully apply certain quotes to my life and I will share some with you.
This is the first quote in a series of three that I will share of the next three days in the quote challenge. Thank you for the invitation leannenz. I really enjoyed your first in the series of quotes. I would like to invite 3 awesome bloggers to share their favorite quotes in the series of 3.

Try not to waste time on darkness that robs you of your light!
How you spend your time, defines who you are or who you become!
Some people suffer from major ego-dysfunction and seem to dwell only in dark, negative auras; that once you get sucked in, they rob you of the light and energy that you require for yourself and others!
They are not interested in your time nor the positive energy that you channel to them, but the narcissistic pleasure they derive from waste!
Remember that change cannot be forced down a person’s throat! That person has to desire the change itself, because true change starts from within to without!
You may share your empathy with all, but choose wisely those who dine in the inner cores of your heart!
Use your light for greater good, your life will be better for it!
Wasting your time is simply wasting your life!
Protect your time. It is your life!
