Better Out, Than In – Word Wednesday…

Image result for image quotes of a problem shared

Very few of our problems are solved alone. If you cannot share your deepest concerns with a trusted friend, seek counselling to help you shift the burden of thoughts that weigh you down.

Most times, all it takes for us to feel better and to get a grip of things is a pair of listening ears – and a stranger’s ears can be therapeutic.

Wisdom is to never be afraid to ask and seek for support.

Non-Verbal Expression – Word for Wednesday

What we say and do to others has more impact on them than we sometimes realise or want to acknowledge. Be conscious of those you come across this day. Look for opportunities to show kindness and consideration whilst interacting with others – even online.

Give a hug to a friend or a family member as a way of showing your love, warmth and support. Express yourself non-verbally with your attention and actions.

Let’s grow wiser together…

 

Back home in Nigeria, one of the symbols of wisdom is the spider’s web which represents the creativity and complexity that one requires’ to live a wise life.

How are you spinning your web of life today?

Take notice of how you may be tempted to complain about things over the course of the day. See if you can use these moments to learn more about yourself and your complaint might become insignificant or unnecessary.

A little reminder is not to scapegoat others and to search for who to blame when things go wrong around you. Rather, ask yourself, what part did I contribute to the situation? Owning your decisions and having the courage to acknowledge your share of outcomes of such decisions is the first step towards correction.

Wisdom is bright and does not grow dim
by those who love her, she is readily seen,
and found by those who look for her.

The Book of Wisdom 6: 12 – 16
The Old Testament

Valuable Thoughts From Others

Eugenia “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.:-Maya Angelou

Martha L. Shaw: This quote resonates with me! We never walk alone! I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you. Psalm 32:8 ESV

Willowdot: A beautiful affirmation!

Senoorway: I wish life would be that simple, but if you’re not a multi-millionaire for a start, there are duties to perform and chores to be done – just about every day in your life.
If you have children (or pets) it doubles up. An ideal dream, perhaps, but at least my world isn’t nearly there! Not by a looong shot! And I’ve been working at it for soon 82 years!

Thelonelyauthorblog: Beautiful post. Love the promise to self-love. More people need to make that promise.

Thought For Tuesday…

Never let others project their sense of limited ability on you. The greater part of society and school rob us big time. We are made to feel that our abilities are limited and the continued reinforcement of these limitations erodes our creative confidence.

Every single one of us is born with incredible imagination, intelligence, and intuition, but when we are untrained to tap into these powers they simply shrivel and die.

As adults, many of us are lugging around the baggage of all the ‘you can’t and ‘limiting mindset’ that we acquired in childhood. Due to these habits that we learned growing up, constant settling, avoidance of risk, and learned helplessness become a norm.  Most people settle to such an extent that they believe that ‘this is as good as it gets and can’t be better.’ They are contented trudging along the treadmill of a mediocre life,  barely breaking any sweat and never getting anywhere.

Your fear must never be the fear of being different but the fear of settling for mediocrity.

What About You? Affirmation Challenge Day 47

I am committed to the promises that I made to myself. The promise of self-love. The promise to take better care of myself, body, mind, and spirit. The promise to appreciate myself. The promise to hold on to my dreams and to give them my best shots. The promise not to let the past be an anchor that holds me down. The promise to keep a positive mind and to let love be my compass.

I Searched…

None of us is shallow. Many have simply not learnt how to use their shovel. Jacqueline

I searched for upliftment outside
I saw bits and pieces of it
I saw greedy people grabbing
and holding on to more than they needed

I searched for upliftment within
I saw a bottomless portion
I saw gifts that keep giving
that can be shared with everyone else.
