Sometimes I have these epiphanies that seem to come out of nowhere...but I thank God for them because it's what keeps me going. So many good things are happening in my life to be bogged down with these minor tribulations...rather annoyances that seem to be reoccurring...like an insect that doesn't want to go away. But for cathartic reasons I use this space to placate my temporary feelings which hopefully someone will be able to

I think it has reached a pinnacle and no matter how you place yourself into the right frame of mind to deal with the issue in a different way [which is one of indifference]...the problem keeps rearing it's ugly head so to speak. You know what I mean? Have you ever felt like this? >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Nevertheless, today I realized that I am bigger than my problem and I am intent on conquering this dragon. We'll see how things progress. Apart from this, do you sometimes feel that you have reached a turning point and if you go any further, it would just be down hill? Perhaps, it's just a passing cloud. It is my hope that I can transform situations into an inspirational experience.
Today while soaking in the sunset, I realized that I have the power to inspire feelings of joy, reflection, peace and positivity through my words and my life. Your life can be an example to others...how you live it dictates this. Let's not try to be influenced by outside forces that attempt to steal our zeal and purpose. We must rise above this and try to leave our mark.
Let's block out the external "noise" and let our inner light shine forth for others to see and the naysayer(s) will soon realize that they are irrelevant to our existence and purpose. We all have commonalities but different goals, different mindsets, different aspirations. What we aspire to be should not be contingent on how someone else is living their life.
I know I have so much more to give and it resonates deep within my being. It goes beyond the 8-4 or 9-5, it transcends the limitations of a physical or temporal space. It is eternal. My message traverses geographical, cultural, religious or ethnic barriers. And it does not end there. The best is yet to come. My desire to transform negative into positive and enrich lives is constantly multiplying and aggregating into different forms. Only time will tell how this journey unfolds...I anxiously await the next adventure.

So far I've met some interesting people on this particular part of my journey and I feel blessed to form these acquaintances and friendships that I needed to forge at this particular point in my life to grow and evolve to my next level. Whatever the future holds, I am now more ready than I've ever been.
My second book is underway and the sky is the limit to my future endeavours. Stay tuned to this space to watch it all unfold...
Cheers to you!

Life has a funny way of working out in your favour. All the twists and turns you encounter during your journey has a way of bringing you back to your centre. Once you believe you would have exactly what your heart desires and more. Try to find the silver lining, even if things don't go your way at first...the meaning will become clear as time unfolds. Above all once you set your sights on something never give up. Paradise could be right around the corner. This verse stuck in my memory ever since elementary school and I keep it as my mantra for daily living...well as much as possible anyway!
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths." Proverbs 3: 5-6
Have a great week...
Peace & Love

Daydreaming about the future again...So many plans, not sure where to begin. Still not sure what the future holds. Life is about progress...constantly moving, changing to accommodate new dreams, pursuits and swim against the tide. To create history and go against the norm against the odds. To soar above the ordinary to places we would only visit in our imagination.
What lies ahead is a matter of drive and motivation to conquer, to achieve, to find happiness and fulfillment. Some people thrive on such an adrenaline rush, others are content to just simply be. As for me, my desire burns further than what I can imagine. It propels me forward to experience new adventures and live my life unfettered and free. Free from hang ups or limitations. To do what others say I cannot do. To live my life the way I want to live it regardless of circumstance.
Wherever my journey takes me, I would be grateful for I know everything is as is should be. Every experience I have had or will have and persons I have met and will meet were designed and placed in my path for a purpose. Without even knowing it, our lives have purpose...every single moment...has meaning. Even the people you meet on the street or in the supermarket or the ones that last a lifetime...were sent to your life for a reason. It is up to us to discover that meaning and Make it Count in our lives.
Nothing is by chance...don't ever take it for granted. Make every moment work in your lives to redound to a greater good. I know I have and plan to till I draw my last breathe...I plan to do what I was placed here to do. I am still working on my shortcomings as we all have them. My life is a work in progress and I ask that the Lord gives me strength, wisdom and courage to always try to do the right thing.
Last weekend was fabulous as I spent time with truly special people. I realized that life is short so time ought not to be wasted harbouring ill-feelings or resentment or living in fear. Now is the time to create your future.
You will never have this moment again. Take a chance on life!

Wow! We're in August already!!....5 more months for the year...What's your game plan? Is there anything you want to accomplish before this year is complete? Are there things you want to put in place for next year? It's time to get moving...thinking, activating, planning and achieving. In a minute it will be Christmas once more. Let's not let it find us in the same spot. Set your sights on your goal, make a list of things needed to get it done, set targets and work steadfastly every day until you have achieved your target.
Easy does it, nice and slow, once you set your mind to it...
DON'T LET GO!

Happy Emancipation Trinidad & Tobago!
Freedom to choose, freedom to dream, freedom to be the best you can possibly be. Our ancestors fought for our freedom so that we may dare to dream and live without mental, emotional or physical restraint. You are as free as you choose to be.
