Nuggets to Keep You Focused

I enjoy reading inspirational quotes when I need a little pick-me-up. There are just some days when you are too much with yourself, you get into your head and seem stuck there. Recently, I have been feeling a little out of sorts and have been trying to get out of the funk I’m in. This time instead of scouring the internet looking for some inspo quotes, some came to me that are helping me. So, today I share with you all some that I think will be helpful when you find yourself in that position. It really takes great commitment and effort not to be totally flattened by negative thoughts and emotions, that for whatever reason assault us out of the blue. Take all of these quotes or one that brings you the comfort that you need to get through each second, minute, hour or day:

A new chapter can begin when even in uncertainty and doubt you say yes. Not because you know the time is right, but because you are right for that time.

Forgive yourself for yesterday and live for today

Chances are you won’t walk this way again, so stop, breathe, taste, touch and live

Commit to one small act to revive the soul each day and fill your life’s album

Do not be defined by the past but redefine yourself instead

Feel what you feel but do not make it your bedfellow

You can only get from others what they see you give to yourself

Being kind to others is a good habit to develop each day, but leave some over for yourself.

Regret is a cold, cruel dish that if ingested, will give you indigestion!

You will be miserable at times, and you may feel helpless and even lonely at times, but whatever you feel, be honest with yourself so that those feelings have an escape and do not do harm

A lie, even one by omission, takes too much effort to try and control and in the end, it leads you off a cliff

You are allowed to have moments of doubt but do not swallow them or they will burn and singe your insides like molten lava

A Wisp of Steam

A Wisp of Steam

Slowly you rise
stretched thin
before their eyes
controlled by heat
moulded by fire.
you dear to defy
try to deny
your destiny.
in your eyes
you do not see
the truth
you disappear
into thin air.

Who Told You?

WHo Told You?

Who told you
to accept things they way they are?
Who told you to conform?
Who tricked you
told you
that is the only way
to follow the crowd.
WHo told you
you should never suffer
that trials would not appear?
Who told you to turn away
from who you truly are
to follow what they say?
Who told you 
you were weak
that all your life you would expereince defeat?
Who told you lies
so that you belief
and the truth you cannot see?

Stop being deceived.

Unmerited Favor

Unmerited Favor

I thought... 
I had to give you my world - 
at least that's what I heard.
I thought I had to please you
just to get through 
or find an imaginary chink
in your armour
to get to the light.
But I did not move.
I could not move,
because I did not what to lose
the one and only chance I had
so I set to run
to grab onto your gown...

But before I heard the gun
I felt the breeze 
brush against my cheeks
and a voice that made it impossible to breathe
impossible to move:
Be still and know...

The Hikikomori Way

The Hikikomori Way

Is there nothing more
to being alive?

Than to work
and work and work.
Until all our life force
is used up
and then we return to the dust.

Will we die from the shame?

We are not better my friends
than the birds in the sky
at least they fly
before the most die.

there must be more 
to our lives -
I must know this.

But to find out -
the welcoming shadowy doubts - 
I must resist.

My One Confession

My One Confession

In this dark hour
when my life
pride would devour,
I know
I can do nothing
no matter what I own
no matter my great feats
I cannot heal
without my Sustainer.
I am industrious
know all - 
But Father,
I can do nothing
be nothing,
except by your grace.



Accept you know
but do not know.

For when we don't know
good things will come.

When we look around the corner too soon
We may fall into a trap too deep.

There is no esculator up these mountains
only the wind to carry us.

Accept that you can't know
and good things will follow.
