Re-blog: Worldly Whims

What we runs after in our life explains a lot about who we really are. While many we know do have their own priorities and goals, when it comes to our own selves, we should be doing what is best for us.

The world we live in loves to persuade us into materialism through different ways but once you have set up your own vision and goal clearly, there will be no diversion in achieving what you want to achieve.

Read out this lovely piece by Calm Kate about what is more important to us than what we do consider important.

aroused

Do you have to have this and that

Work to renew those devices

Wear the right clothes

Drive the right car

Have the perfect home

 

Has this made you perfectly
Happy content and satisfied?

 

If not then shed the unnecessary

Cull back to the bare essentials

Change your attitude and focus

Sort your values, set priorities

Know yourself to find freedom

 

This brings me genuine happiness

Contentment and real satisfaction

 

Without trying the alternative

And checking societal norms

You are blindly led down the

Throw away materialistic abyss

Save yourself now to live joyfully

 

Do you want to be happy

Content and satisfied?

 

Or are you prepared to waste this life

Slave to your every wilful desire

Chasing a never ending quagmire

Of elusive worldly accumulation

Distracting you from inner peace

 

You are very precious so please

Be happy content and satisfied

Re-blog: Gifts from Blogging

To those who have no clue about what wonders blogging brings upon, this wonderfully amazing list of blogging benefits by Miriam Blaker certainly packs enough power to let them truly see and understand what they are actually missing.

The world is full of amazing people and I found so many of them through blogging 🙂

Out an' About

Roses are red, violets are blue, today’s my birthday but the gifts are for you.

Make a wish 

I’m 53 years old young today. Hip, hip, hooray, where have the years gone?  I still feel 21. Yep, except my need for reading glasses, dodgy memory and aching bones tells me otherwise. Falling off a bike recently didn’t help either.

However, I’ve never felt more blessed and passionate about life than I do right now. I’m grateful for every single day and my heart, mind and eyes are wide open. To a degree, blogging has played a huge part in that.

I started back in 2015, the February before I turned 50, the year before I lost my mum and my life changed forever.

As I write this (a few days before my birthday) I reflect on…

Re-blog: Enjoy Life!

Simple, short but an amazing set of thoughts by Kate about something we all known as Life!

Do read it out 🙂

aroused

when life seems to cause the blues

brighten yourself up with many hues

find something to make you laugh

then laugh and laugh until you baff

wear something sexy or cheerful

ardently avoid the grey and tearful

dance away to your favourite tune

muck about, play the buffoon

life is far too short

so don’t get caught

wasting it in an unfitting mood

make fun, be a real playful dude!

dedicated to Nat a lovely young lady who passed this week, cancer took her too soon!

Re-blog: Time I’ll Never Know

And now, few thoughts about time from any1mark66, which is slipping away so rapidly.

Leaving behind nothing but memories which also fades away slowly down the road.

Coloring Outside the Lines

The pause before a sigh

The moment that lingers

Thoughts I wanted to cling

Emotions that should have countered

Snipets of memories

Collections of thoughts

Second hand sweeps them by

Calendar buries them quickly

When the afterglow fades

When the smiles straightens

I search so i’ll know next time

Left grasping sand as it slips away

What once was becomes golden

When is the riddle of the universe

I can remember or so I say

I can not place it in order

Doesn’t mean it didn’t happen

Could of happened, I think

Time is a young man’s game

It gets carried in baskets of hope

We sprinkle it about uncaring

One day we look back

Upon a fleeting path we came

Suddenly the basket has a bottom

We look to replace what was spent

Postcards left as mile markers

Recollections fill in gaps

But the image has lost it’s time

Re-blog: Ten Life Lessons from My Bike

Cycling around the neighborhood on my bicycle is definitely one of the top 5 things I miss the most from my childhood.

Few things in life give you a certain feeling which you can’t explain properly or even label up properly. For me, cycling is one such thing because it reminds me what a wonderful era my childhood was.

I would love to sit back on the seat and hit those paddles once again.

Check out this post by Miriam about how she reconnected with her passion of cycling and I have to say, she is riding along very well 🙂

Out an' About

There’s something about the rush of wind in your hair when you’re cycling that’s totally invigorating. That is, until you find yourself flat on the ground.

Re-blog: How I Came Up With So Much Ideas?! And How I Manage To Write Everyday

Maintaining your blog/website on daily basis ain’t so easy. I remember the first 8 months of this very own blog of mine, when I suffered from writer’s block almost everyday and attracting new visitors was hard for me.

So, if you are planning to start up your very own blog or if you already own one, check out these amazing simple tips from Kally about how to keep your blog up and running on daily basis with what you love to share with the world.

Re-blog: Knights of Today

The arena may have changed but the game is very much the same.

Players don’t wear shiny armors anymore but they suit up well.

And the rules!

They are just the same, there’s no denying in that.

Calm Kate has written this great piece about Knights of today’s world, who don’t ride on horses or carry swords with them anymore. To seek their desires, they may have changed their tactics and many of us are turning into their prey, without even knowing it!

aroused

We are called Knights of Today to keep it simple and anonymous. We are the elite one percenters with billions at our disposal so we meet in private lounges at golf clubs around the world or on one of our yachts, space craft [ufo’s] or submarines.

With our own jets, space craft, cruisers and subverted communications meetings are arranged every month to ensure that we stay abreast of setting the worlds political and economic trends. We control consumerism and production keeping the masses senseless as we track them through their devices. Nothing is left to speculation as we know their every move, their thought patterns, preferences and quirks. None would dare to step out of line or are even aware that we exist let alone question us.

No business, group or movement starts up without being closely monitored as it can all be done electronically through their own devices that…

Re-blog: Let’s Meet at the Horizon

There’s more to day and night than we know.

They shape up our daily lives and the world we live in like nothing else. They take their turn in timely manner to give us the gift of life.

And this weighs much more than we can think of.

Many thanks to Aysa for sharing this lovely take by an old man about how a day turns into night, only to return back.

A tremendous excitement begins as the day ends.

The excitement of two powerful forces attracted to each other.

Re-blog: Muslim volunteers help so Christians can attend Church on Christmas Eve

Just when few sense-less tweets of a certain president make you feel uncomfortable and put doubts in your mind about the future of humanity, finding about an act of kindness from unknown corner of the world restores your faith in mankind.

Many thanks to JoAnna for sharing this story about Muslim volunteers who help a Christian pastor this Christmas Eve.

Our world is full of such kindness, not just with nonsense of a high ranking individual.

Anything is Possible!

Sunflower w address

Salem United Church of Christ normally provides meals and shelter every Sunday night for homeless women and children. But since Christmas eve was on a Sunday, they didn’t know how they’d be able to attend Christmas Eve church and meet their usual rotation in the BEDS plus homeless program. When the pastor shared this dilemma with an interfaith association, Karen Danielson, of the Bridgeview Mosque Foundation offered the services of Muslim volunteers.

This story demonstrates one more example of how we are stronger together:
