Embrace The Elegance Of Simplicity

EMBRACE THE ELEGANCE OF SIMPLICITY BAJEZEN.BLOG.png

Don’t be defined by the events of the past
Intimidated by the monsters that lurk in the shadows
Life is not a puzzle to be solved, fixed or sorted
It may be messy but it is a miracle

Be open to every possibility
Strip it down, clear your mind
Immerse yourself in the simplicity

Embrace the elegance of life
Be ingenious, be brave enough to face any challenge

Beauty can be found in everything
Celebrate yourself, focus on the good
Forget what you think you know
Find the inspiration in the present moment
Never fight against the flow

The Empty Nest

The Empty Nest baje

 

Memories of the pitter patter of little feet
A cocktail of laughter and tears, the breakups, the makeups
Building a home is never an easy job
It takes hard work married with creativity
You want to keep your little  ones safely tucked under your wings
With a huge dose of faith and pangs of anxiety, you let them go
Knowing one day they would grow up to do brave and marvelous things
Your will was always tested but you refused to let them stray
The baby bird now grown will always be a baby in her mother’s eyes
You blink and in instant, your little ones have flown away
It’s quiet now, maybe too quiet
The proud mother hen smiles, knowing she did her best
We can only pray to keep them protected, to raise them well and hopefully they will live a good life beyond the nest

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?
