My Thinking Corner

Growing Happiness – My Thinking Corner

Happiness, My Thinking Corner, State of Mind, Mental Health

Don’t go chasing to harvest happiness from afar when you haven’t even bothered to plant and water it where you are. Jacqueline

Your happiness is always where you kept it. It’s not acquired through materialism and it’s not what happens to you.

It may be absent on some days when the going is rough, but always know that it’s there in the midst of chaos, pain, sadness, failure, success, peace and all the ups and downs of life.

We harp so much on happiness that sometimes this sells the idea that we have to be in a euphoric state, floating and gliding through life that those who don’t feel that way are left wondering if something is wrong and a cycle to buy happiness commences which only leaves the purchaser shortchanged.

Accepting that it’s okay to be just okay is a key to contentment.

Growing your happiness will never be a destination that you get to and all of a sudden everything is just as perfect as you want it, but a mindset that you build from within and know that despite every situation you will remain in charge of your state of being.

My Thinking Corner

Living as You – My Thinking Corner

I knew that I would run out of fuel living as someone else, so, the best shot I’ve got at living is to live as me – Jacqueline

Break the Chains, Life lessons, Quotes, Motivation


The best peace that we can give ourselves is to come to terms with who we truly are, embrace it and move forward from there.

Our life is intertwined with sweet and bitter moments, sometimes the bitterness tends to erode the sweetness, but I’ve learnt and still learning that we can enrich our bitter moments and turn it into fodder for sweeter moments.

Don’t stay in that categorised box where others have chosen to keep you. Liberate yourself, cut lose and live fully. You are more than a label.

Lady Cee shares with us snippets of 12 shades of thinking and a free e-book by renowned Dr John Maxwell.

Tuesdays Trickles – My Thinking Corner.

I would like to invite you to participate. The challenge is quite simple. You can check this link for more details.



♥ Start paying attention and listening to what you say.

♥ If you hear yourself consistently using negative or self-limiting words; change them.

Remember that as a man thinks in his heart, so is he and there’s definitely power in our thoughts and our words. There’s usually a fine line between saying the truth about how you feel or what’s going on in your life in a positive way and being filled with negative energy that refuses to give room for better positive consciousness.  I’ve met people who are so filled with negativity and yet they wonder why they can’t be happy or get the best out of their circumstances. It’s all about choices. We choose how we think and there’s power in that positive thinking.

Lady Cee sends in precious quotes and thoughts that worth reflecting on. Do take a peek.

Be happy.

Writer's Quote Wednesday

My Beliefs…Thursday Writing Challenge


Beliefs are like seeds sown over time. Some will fall on fertile ground and yield good fruits, some not at all and some will become thorns – Jacqueline

I believe in God.

I believe in the ultimate power of love.

I believe in the power of positive thinking.

I believe in the strength of family and unity.

I believe in the resilience of the human spirit.

I believe in seeds sown for positive growth.

I believe that caring and kindness elevates us.

I believe that all men are born equal and each must be treated fairly.

I believe that we are all chosen for a higher purpose and can all make a difference.

I believe in the healing power of forgiveness.

I believe in God.

Since the beginning of time, societal beliefs have been passed down from generation to generation. Some beliefs are true. Some beliefs are half-truths borne out of the perception of the believer. Some are outright lies that have been perpetuated over time that they become accepted as true for the benefit of the perpetrators.

P.S. You are cordially invited to our monthly blog party happening live on this blog Saturday 30th – Sunday 31st July 🙂

Below is my first 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

Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha’s poems portray images that stare us right in the face. Images of love, joy, death, pain, challenges, violation, and freedom. She writes in a language that’s rich in imagery, earthy, honest, vulnerable, yet full of the promise of hope, of loving and of Grace. A collection of light and dark soulful prose.

Tuesdays Trickles…My Thinking Corner # 18

Every Tuesday, I share snippets of thoughts that I call ‘My Thinking Corner.’

I would like to invite you to participate. The challenge is quite simple.

Each Tuesday, share your very short snippets of positive, inspiring, motivating, health, spiritual, writing advice, clips, posts etc, that can serve as a prop to motivate others and simply add my link to your post.

I call it my thinking corner because, I actually take out a bit of time just to think through things, encapsulate my thoughts as much as possible and detoxify my mind. It helps give me clarity of vision and might help you too.

It might work for you in a different way, but the idea is to get the positive thoughts flowing.

Please send in your little thoughts. You never know whose life you might inspire.


  • Rome was built, burnt down and rebuilt. Great things you seek to achieve, sometimes fall apart before the rise again.
  • When you let yourself go, always remember where you did so, that way you can pick yourself up again.
  • If we fail to learn from past mistakes, our lives become an epistle of errors.
  • If you go to sleep with Mr. bad mood, you wake up with the wrong companions.
  • None has a perfect life, nor perfect days, but we can take some of our moments and make them sublime.

Thoughts for this week came in from:

Dollops of heedful ramblings – Determination How determined are you to succeed? What steps do you take in your process? Do you stand by your decisions? Ask yourself

Annette’s place Annette shares million dollar worth quotes and they resonate very well with me.

For some reason, this week I haven’t received any pingbacks from people. I guess there’s still pingback issue. It’s all good.
