Move forward

Pocketfuls of promises sagging when the wind Laps the skirt around your knees. Locked inside a static stance The possibility of movement beckons at your hems Yet, rigidity overwhelms. Eyes fixed on the hopeful whispers that escape The prison of fleece-lined pockets, Riding potent wind gusts. Life pokes and thrusts Will you say yes? Fling…

Just A Work In Progress

For the sake of completeness, I am sharing my weekly goals even though we’re almost midway through the week.  However, since it’s so late in the week, I’ll also tell you where I am with meeting these targets. Read the Bible everyday – yes Read 4 books – I’ve already finished one and am set…

The Only Reason To Advertise

Did you ever wonder why established companies like McDonald’s spend money on advertising? Its not like McDonald’s needs to introduce their company to us. I don’t think there’s a person over the age of three in North America who’s never heard the jingle, or can’t identify Ronald McDonald in a lineup or doesn’t know what the golden…

Summer Running

I’m in week 8 of the daily workout challenge that I started with my virtual running-buddy and getting a little bored with my daily running routine. Every morning, I lace up my sneaks and without spending time to warm up, I start running as soon as possible. Usually, I am hurrying because I’m trying to beat the sun coming…

Book Of The Day

There is no universal answer to the question, What is the meaning of life? For life means different things to different people on different days. There is simply no single answer to the question what is the best thing to do now. Everyone has their own vocation, their own skill, their own agenda. Our best move is…

The Kindness Of Strangers

A few days ago, I took a different route home. I didn’t know why but I felt the urge to walk down a street I don’t travel often. At the intersection, I spied something in the middle of the road and I passed it by, like everyone else did. But then I crossed the street again…

The 5 Reasons Your Rival Will Fail

The obstacle is the way  That’s the title of a book I am digesting. The content focuses on how to deal with perceived setbacks and make them into tools for greatness instead. It set me thinking about how I deal with setbacks in my own life. While I muse, I want to include you, give you a…

4 Steps For Moving From Failure to Success

Many dream, but few dream and fulfill. The fear of failure hinders us moving from dreaming to doing. We’re afraid of what will happen when our dreams are exposed to the sunlight and don’t look the way they did in our minds. So we keep them locked inside our heads, afraid of failure but also…

Not-so-social media

Sometimes, social media is just a fun way to be social; sometimes it’s more of a reason to not be social. Scrolling through your Instagram feed could be justification for looking at your phone while you avoid an awkward conversation with someone you don’t really like. Twitter’s 140 characters or less forces wordy writers to…
