A Spoon full of Sugar makes the Medicine go down...

Home again...

I remember doing an interview with a past colleague for an article for a magazine about a year or two ago...and his words still ring in my ears up to this day..."Be careful what you ask for..."

Indeed...I have to repeat it as my mantra. Sometimes God answers your prayers, sometimes he doesn't because he knows what's best. But what is certainly true is that he doesn't give us more than we can bear! Yup...this right here is turning into an EXPERIENCE of great proportions. I once thought I've seen and heard it all...but I had no idea. My neighbour was telling me the other evening, that these tests are supposed to make you stronger and if your life was too easy something is wrong....But certainly I thought I was over the roughest parts of my life, but I guess God has a plan for me. 

Just last night I was updating my mother and suddenly in between thoughts, it was revealed to me like a shining star in a dark night....I was sent to every situation of my life for a purpose. In fact everyone was. I remember saying to staff at a function, that every moment in your life has led you to be here today...they have all prepared you for this and if you take away any one of those very unique moments, your life now would have been very different. I need to take my own advice. 

Yup, so I need to accept that my life is not by chance. That it has purpose and I need to try to live that purpose in the most meaningful way I know how. Absorb the lessons and make it count. I am in no way a casualty of my past. I am supposed to influence everyone I meet for the better. Of course there will be naysayers everywhere you go without fail but what is important is how we treat with these persons and situations. I have met some great allies (or so it seems for now lol) and there is good and bad everywhere you go but sometimes you need to put things into perspective, trust in God and swallow down the bad tasting medicine because you know it's good for you in the end.

I speak these words now, because based on my experiences I believe that everything happens for a reason and once you have faith in the Almighty everyone will find their way eventually to a place that is just and right.

The end...

ps. This makes very good material for Book 2...or even a mini film...I have recently met a very talented film maker/writer and director...who knows the sky is the limit...#GodisGOOD...everyday...

Happy Father's Day!

Gives you the best advice without even asking what the problem is
Taught you how to ride a bike and drive
Believes in you even if no one else does
Is the best storyteller and comedian of all time
Knows when you need a hug or a good laugh
Knows how to fix most things around the house and taught you what you know about positive and negative in a battery pole
Can be counted on to find a solution to any problem
Taught you the value of a dollar and the importance of saving for a rainy day
Makes the best sugar cake and punches in the world
Knows how to keep the peace
Dad we love and thank you.

Embrace Change~

I re-read this classic book a year ago on a flight to Grenada..."Who Moved my Cheese" by Spencer Johnson. Found this pic on my phone recently...thought I'd share. The only thing constant is change. When we learn to embrace it, we free ourselves from our inhibitions and clear the way to move positively forward regardless of circumstance. Only then we may attract the right situations and people to our lives and witness the changes we desire materialize in our own lives.

Where is home?

Where is home? Recently I told a few persons that I was going "home" for the long weekend. Then later... on my return trip I was thinking aloud to myself: "I'm going home." But where is really home? Then suddenly it hit me: home is where you feel most at peace, where you feel comfortable just being. Some place where you feel independent and free. So to sum it up: I have two homes but right now in this moment...this is my home. This is where I spend most of my time and I actually feel comfortable. Yes home is where the heart is and although my heart will always be with my family, I need this time to spread my wings and find my place in the world. Though this is not the final chapter and I have much to explore in the moment my heart lies here...
