Let love Unfurl

The world as we know it is in a chaotic state

Something dark and ugly triggered

The banner of hate unfurled at an alarming rate

Stories of crashes and bombs and senseless animosity 

Everyday life seemingly has become a cheesy blockbuster movie

Or is this just a replica of reality tv?

I shudder to think that this is the legacy we will leave

for future generations

Each one can make a difference

The lessons always begin at home

Teach our children  the merits  of meditation, diversity, and love 

The value of lending a hand when someone is in need

Teach selflessness, to be selfish is a curse

No one can achieve anything of real meaning

    Without seeing the good in others 

I am a strong believer that love will always trump hate

Spread the message of positivity

Whatever little you can do to heal the human race

Thursday Thoughts : Don’t Give Up !

Some days the  load of life’s problems become  so exhausting. You just ask yourself wouldn’t it just be easier to quit? Sometimes despite our best efforts everything just seems to turn to shit. 

Giving up may appear to be the easy way out especially when those roots of frustration set in. Giving up gives the illusion of instant gratification, doesn’t it? On the other side of that coin, you are left wondering what if? What if the very day you decide to chuck it all in, is the day your breakthrough will come.

Whenever I lose focus this is the thought that keeps me going. A slight change in focus can wonderfully transform your thinking.

“Your point of power is in the present moment .” Louise Hay

God did not create us to settle, be defeated or mediocre. I acknowledge the fact that I have challenges but I will not dwell on them.  Today I will focus on the good. 

Here are a few quotes that I found inspiring this week. I hope they inspire you as well.

What do you do to find inspiration when you feel like giving up? Happy Almost Friday. Love and Blessings Tachi

Made to Love

dts-072617

Disorganization seems to be the theme of everyday life
All we seem to see is corruption, chaos, and hate
We claim that we have become so advanced
Yet years later we have the same debates
Mercury is in retrograde and our world is spinning off its axis
We can no longer sit back and wait
Wait for the powers that be to tell us how to live, how to be, who to love
Despite their separation tactics
We continue to rally , stand up and fight
Despite bigotry , despite prejudice
We were made to love
In His image we are all one

The Prickle of Fear

 

comfort-zone-quotes4-min-450x500

 

Is it easier to wallow in the misery of your comfort zone?
Or be cripled by the prickle of fear?
We often let our souls slowly die
Being suffocated by that old familiar air
Oh for that adrenalin rush of trying something new
Diving into the waters of the unknown
with no life jacket
Baring your soul, naked and vulnerable
Are you strong enough to hack it ?
Are you enticed by the prickles of excitement
that will propel you to a new horizon?
Or will you stay stuck thirsty in the desert of abandoned dreams
Clinging to the mirage of failure?
Burst out of that comfort zone, there are no failures just learning
You have to get uncomfortable to create something wonderful, something great
Follow your heart, take that first step, never ignore those soulful yearnings.

Feel better in a jiffy : Meditate

africanspirit11

 

Overwhelmed by the events of the day 
She found herself in a very dark place 
Feeling defeated, depleted and broken 
She needed a saving grace 
Throwing a pity party she  just laid there staring at the ceiling
The pain overwhelming she just wanted to let it all out 
She needed to organize her thoughts 
Balance her chakras 
Get out of this creative rut 
Meditation would be her cure of choice 
Deep breaths and mantras to soothe that nagging negative voice
Several deep breaths was all it took 
To restore her wounded soul 
In a jiffy, she channeled the goddess she was 
Grounded, centered and restored 
Once again she believed she could slay any goal.

Turn a minus into a plus. Thoughts on the word No.

October 24 • 7-00 PM Koch Bar, New York

 

I can not tell you how many times I have heard the word NO.  “No, you can’t “‘

”No that is a bad idea or  No that won’t work ”

”No you don’t belong here ”    images

Being rejected can be so discouraging . I am sure you guys can relate. NO has to be one of the most fatalistic words in the English language.

Let’s be honest, at some point in our lives, we have wanted to ”fit in ” or belong. It is human nature to crave love and acceptance. In a perfect world, there would be no such thing as rejection. Meh, who needs your stinky approval anyways?

I always like to put a positive spin on everything. What we often perceive to be negative, in reality sometimes really isn’t that horrific.

Here is what the word No has taught me :

Not everything that we want is in our best interests.

The universe will slam a door in your face for your own well-being. Whatever you lose or is left behind was never for you. It took me years to get this. Many tears and failures and some really iffy relationships. Embrace the path that you are on. Even if that path is rocky and all you seem to do is stub your toe on all of those pesky obstacles that life puts in our paths .  images

Do not be so desperate for approval that you compromise yourself 

You are valuable . Your thoughts; opinions are valid . Do not settle, compromise or sell out just to be a part of something . The more you embrace who you really are.The happier you will be . The right people will show up . If your insides are screaming no , then trust your gut and don’t do it .

Rejection can give you a real dose of humility. It may knock you on the ass . While you are on the floor ; it causes you to sit and examine what went wrong, and what you can do to improve yourself and your life.

Most criticism is just noise 

When I was younger I was such a little softie. I swear I used to take everything personally. I have learned when seeking advice to consider the source. Some people will have something negative to say no matter what the circumstance. Some will poo poo your ideas and they have never had an original idea in their life. Opinions are just that opinions. You just need to have faith in yourself and know in your heart what is right for you. Do you really want to spend your days living someone else’s life? Hell no.

When pursuing your goals you have to develop a tough skin. If we respond to every no, rejection, set back with a defeatist attitude; most of us probably would not get out of bed. Remember nothing ventured. Nothing gained. Perseverance is your best friend.

Rejection is there to teach us to be stronger, better and to try harder. To push ourselves past perceived limits.

Just ensure you surround yourself with a good support system this will help you through those rough days.

Don’t take one No (heck any no) as the final answer. Find ways to regroup, rebuild revamp, research and review. Curve that negativity like Neo curved bullets in the Matrix.

Don’t try to fit in. No matter what you do. Do it with your own unique flair. If you can’t find a tribe. Build your own. We were all created unique for a reason . Never let anyone tell you how to be yourself .

Love and Blessings Tachi

Five things you need to make everyday a great day

Another beautiful Monday 🙂 I always like to start the week with a little motivation for those feeling those Monday blues. Today is Kadooment Monday here in Barbados. As we speak people are donned in costumes and dancing in the streets. No Monday blues here. Just drinks, dancing and a whole lot of fun in the sun. Here are five things you need to have a great day today and every day 🙂

A positive outlook: Your circumstances do not determine your level of happiness. Your thoughts do.

Gratitude: Be grateful for what you have and you will be blessed with all you desire.

Mindfulness: You will gain nothing by worrying about the past or the future. Today is the only day you have. Make the best of it. Nothing to do but enjoy the present.

Be confident:  Self-confidence is your ally in life. Through all the disappointments, setbacks your belief in yourself will determine if you are successful or if you quit.

Perseverance: Ask yourself how can I achieve my goals? As they say, more than one way to skin a cat. Be unyielding in pursuit of your desires.

 

A great day to all. Love and Blessings Tachi
