The Daily Prompt : The Season Of Sparkle

We often lose the wonder and amazement we possessed as children when we have grown older

I am not sure when life transforms from a magical experience into somewhat of a mad hatter’s tale

It’s the time of year that warms our hearts. The giggles of happy little ones, dazzling  lights, and the tinsel

The merry tunes, the rum and spirits and sweet treats that make our senses tingle

In the Caribbean, we typically take this time to have a clutter clearing session

We strip the house, toss out the old things, freshen up our surroundings with a fresh coat of paint and break out our best in decor

We live for the opportunity to live it up even if it just for a day

We spread joy, share love, good food and spend our day with treasured  company that makes our day truly sparkle

I do not know anyone who does not love Christmas

You can literally feel the joy-buzzing in the air especially when we do not focus on just the commercial

This season let’s focus on spreading positivity, spreading our light and celebrating life
This crazy beautiful miracle.

Sunday Soul- Food : Expressing Gratitude In Trying Times

sunday soul food bajezen

Thanksgiving is typically associated with expressing gratitude. I believe we do not need a season to be grateful. Life can sometimes be like a dark cloud hanging over our heads. Those days are not pleasant but are an absolute necessity in life.On gloomy days we can find some of our best inspiration.

Hard times teach us to be strong and to keep trying. We can be surrounded by the darkest of nights and somehow we manage to step forward into the unknown guided only by our faith. Be grateful for the moments that test you they will teach you patience.Your problems teach you how to be ingenious and cm up with solutions. There is nothing in life that you can not overcome. There is no yin without yang, no light without darkness. The next time you are going through a trying period; remember it won’t last forever and there is always something to be grateful for. You are doing your best and that really is all that matters.

Have a Wonderful day and remember to express gratitude to someone special in your life 🙂

 

What are you grateful for today? What have you learned from the tough times in your life?
