Showers Of Blessings : Gratitude

gratitide bajezen

When you focus on what is missing
You begin to feel like you have nothing
The need to chase the material consumes you
Lie, cheat and steal just to have ”everything ”
The pursuit is futile
In an instant, it can all be taken away
You could waste your life chasing things that were never meant to stay
In reality, we lack nothing
A change in perspective helps you to see the world with fresh eyes
Give thanks, share love
When you celebrate the good it can only get better
Expressing gratitude opens a floodgate of blessings in your life

Forget What You Prefer : Just Be In The Moment

bajezen prefer

 

As a Libra, I find it really difficult to make up my mind. I honestly try to see all sides of everything. When presented with a choice I never seem to be able to come to a decision right away. Of course, when I finally do it’s almost impossible to deter me from the path that I have chosen. In life we all have preferences. Most of the time is quite challenging to adjust to not getting what you prefer.

Wouldn’t it be ideal if we all could just get whatever we wanted all the time? I surely do not think so. I have longed for some things in the past; now when  I look back and wonder if maybe I spent most of my days intoxicated. Oh, life is a real shit show sometimes and you just want to yell why me?

Heavy stuff comes to weigh you down, to test your mettle to challenge you. Try as you may sometimes everything will go contrary to what you envisioned. Life is like an ocean, absolutely unpredictable. Sometimes you just got to ride out the waves or the high tide would wash you away.

What you are presented with now may be less than ideal. Whatever you are feeling don’t suppress it, don’t stay silent. Let it all out  and allow yourself to heal. It is not always easy but you just have to take it as it comes. Living in the future and trapped in the past will surely lead you down a path of self-destruction and dissatisfaction.

Now is the only moment you have, make the most of it. A present moment spent longing for a long-lost preference will leave you empty and always wanting. Breathe, just breathe acknowledge that you are still alive. As long as you are, you still can muster that one bit of fight to help you through. When it all goes to hell, and the world is crumbling sometimes breathing, immersing yourself in the moment is all you can do.

How do you deal when things are not going your way? I love hearing from you.

Orange

Nature tells a story with her vibrant colours
The glorious sunset sets the mood for reunited lovers
The change in  seasons  ushers in an orange glow
Autumn  welcomes playful moments in pumpkin patches
A nature lover’s paradise, a chance for family bonding
Brown and golden leaves fall, a kaleidoscope of colours
A shedding of the old, teaching us the art of letting go of what no longer serves us.

Surreal

surreal bajezen

The red or the blue pill which will you choose
Down the rabbit hole
 Surreal, a mix of fantasy and reality
Imagination stretched, everything is within in the realm of possibility
Animated, suspended it plays out like a movie
The conscious and the unconscious married
Opposite and yet in harmony 
The mind is so powerful it can take you wherever you want to go
Turn your lows into highs and your highs into lows
Is this a dream or reality?
Did I just wake up or am I still asleep?

Identity

identity bajezen

Nothing on this earthly realm defines your true  identity
Not your skin colour, your car, your house or this sack of flesh and bones that is your body
You and you alone determine how you navigate this journey
The soul is the essence, the eternal presence, the captain of your ship
Don’t let your circumstances destroy your inner peace
The labels, the judgements will never define real me
A dynamic spirit, fluid never static

Embracing the struggle  
Flaws and all
Everything and nothing all at once
The bits and pieces of crazy come together to create a masterpiece
Who am I? That is entirely up to me
Constantly in evolution
Identity

Life isn’t about finding yourself . Life is about creating yourself .

Trademark

trademark bajezen

A patchwork of possibilities
Created by the fabric of the divine
Registered at birth
The picture of innocence
A bright spark, anointed with love
We all have that special something
A trademark, an energy, a vibe
What is your brand?
How do you approach life?
Is it a negative or positive
Do you promote harmony or strife?
Appreciate the gift you have been given
Every day may not be sunny but you can find something good in every day
Give good karma, make unforgettable memories
Leave your mark on this world, a legacy 
Big, luminous, bold and unique 

On your own terms, in your own way.

The Daily Prompt : Cacophony

cacophony bajezen

Cacophony, a word that sounds quite foreign to me 
Like something that should be used in a Shakespearean tragedy 
Or maybe they thought of how I sound when I try to sign on  key 
I have absolutely no melody 
Today was certainly an English lesson for me 
It brought to mind the annoying next door neighbour and her extra loud radio

Her chanting yes chanting, like she is performing some ancient ritualistic ceremony

And construction noises when I am trying to sleep 
A bark, a bang a note off-key. 
The perfect example of an annoyance to me 
Now I finally have a word to describe it: cacophony 
Sounds quite poetic. Thank you, Daily, Prompt.
