What My Mama Said To Me…9

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
this life is a marketplace
filled with useful and useless goods,

what you fill your basket with
determines how profitable you’ll be
at the end of your purchases.

Mama said to me, baby if you find that you are not happy there,
never choose not to remain there in a sad state,
because you haven’t been planted like an Iroko tree.

Don’t you know that even an Iroko tree can decide to excuse itself
by choosing to rot and wither from within,
rather than suffer the insult of insolent birds?

Mama said to me, baby,

anyone who keeps dragging you three steps back

when you manage to take one step forward,

must be left behind

to admire your back view

as you hustle along.

Tuesday Trickles…My thinking corner # 25

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. You can check this link for more details.

Dreams[1]

♥ As little or as bogus as your dreams may seem, they belong to you and it’s blossoming lies in your manner of cultivation.

♥ The bigger your dreams, the higher you reach. Don’t be afraid of the size of your dreams, for the grace to pursue them will come when you ask.

Awesome thoughts come your way through these beautiful friends:

Virtue vs Vice: If possible, we should engrave this and look at it each day.

Words of wisdom: Debs words just have an inspiring and calming effect.

Give: I think this should be made into a song. Short and sweet.

6 stop signs you should obey: STOP!! READ! Thank me later 🙂

I totally love the snippets of knowledge that I gain from my thinking corner.

I hope that you find these little drops useful now and again. Do check them out and please share snippets of your thoughts with us.

Thanks and blessed be.
