What My Mama Said To Me…11

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
grumbling from Jericho to Jerusalem
is never going to make your dough rise;

not when you’ve failed
to add much-needed yeast
and to give it the required kneading.

What My Mama Said To Me…10

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
there comes a time when
you’ll tell your goat
to stop giving its milk for free,

‘cos a neighbour
used to getting free milk
will never purchase his own goat
instead, he’ll milk more to make cheese.

What My Mama Said To Me…7

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
never gripe and whine about
how heavy your cross is,

‘cos in the warehouse of crosses
you might find that
yours is the lightest of all.

All I know – My Thinking Corner

 

Sunset, Photograph, At The End of The Day

  • All I know is that when the day is done and you stare at the beautiful, deep orange blush of the Sunset, your heart knows thanks for having yet another opportunity to live a day such as this.

 

  • All I know is that even when you think that all is lost, you must take a second and third look, there’s something to be found.

 

  • All I know is that the quieter your soul becomes, the more truth it can hear in clarity. Search fervently for those quiet moments. Pause the consistent running on the treadmill of life and linger in the meadows for a while.

Do check out my latest video. It would be worth your while.

Wonder Full! – My Thinking Corner.

Wisdom, Peace, Love, Courage, Life, Healing, Luck, Quotes, You Are Wonderful

There’s absolutely no mistake,
Not in the way you were made.
You are the masterpiece of the Master sculptor.
For you are as beautiful as you allow yourself to be.
From within to without,
From the tip of your hair,
To your buck teeth,
To the flat soles of your feet,
You are you.
The you that you are is wonderful,
You are no less than anyone else.
Never spend unnecessary time comparing yourself to another,
For you are made unique.
You must remember to tell yourself this every day.
You have courage.
You have strength.
You have confidence.
You have self-respect and love.
In the stillness of the morning,
In the noise of the day,
In the darkness of the night,
Never fail to tell yourself,
That the sculptor made no mistakes with you,
From within to without,
Until you accept it,
And it is settled,
In your Spirit, Body, and Soul.

Positive affirmations breed positive things.
