While It Lasts….

The weight and the pain,
The hurt and the tears,
The night and the terrors,
A lonely heart feels it all.

Time may not heal it all,
Words may not solve it all,
Success may not cover it all,
For a love lost may never be replaced

See those smiling faces,

Hear those singing voices,

Watch those dancing feet,

For they are what will be remembered when time and music stops.

So, love everyone you can,
Cherish everything you can,
Appreciate those around you today,
For you never know who may stay or leave tomorrow.

Tuesday Quote. 

Separate yourself from the crowd. Chase your dreams. Those who don’t understand your silence will hate and misjudge you, but at the end of the day, the result will tell the full story.

My Thoughts In 10 Minutes: Day 1.

Will I Ever Be Successful? 

No doubt the last year is gone, and the new year is come, but one thing will always remain, your desire to be successful. 

Of a truth, accomplishments were made and a few desires gotten, maybe you recorded some achievement, maybe got that degree you have been chasing, got that job you wanted, bought that house, wrote that book, started that blog, or even got married or engaged to your sweetheart, and now with the year before you, so early as it is, you are starting to ask if this year will that year where all your dreams come true, and you have probably already envisaged how the end of the year would look like and what you must have achieved by that time, well, it is all good and nice, but honestly, pause for a moment. 

Ask yourself, “Am I ready for success?” 

It is very easy to be swept off the ground with the desire to be successful or the noise people make about it so quickly that most times we forget that there is always a  process to go through and one we must prepare for. We focus so much at the end of the journey that we totally ignore the journey itself, trying so hard to catch up with those ahead of us that we forget everyone got their own path to walk in and a process to follow. The question, “will I ever be successful?” begins to play in our hearts when we realize we are not getting exactly what we dreamed, not realizing that the amount of success we get is directly proportional to the amount of time spent in preparation. It is as simple as that. If you want a lasting successful story, then you must be ready to sacrifice time, and if you want that overnight success, be sure it will last for one night. 

Many atimes, we don’t get what we want because we don’t have the stamina to handle it. Some success are destructive because of poor preparation and management, so in order for us not to perish as a result of it, it doesn’t come to us. That is why I am saying, take your time, as for success, it will surely come. 

Do not rush to attain success, prepare for it. 

Do you want to have a successful career, then go get that knowledge and certificate needed. Do you want to be a successful fashion designer, go harness that skill. Do you want to publish that book, then learn how to be a better writer. Stop wasting your time looking at the distance you have to cover to meet up with those ahead, instead, focus on your process. Trust your process, ignore the side talks, don’t bother about the time, just get that fundamental you need to launch, and when you finally do launch, you will realize that you have all it takes to be what you have always dreamed of. 

So don’t rush to be successful, prepare for it, for success is sweeter when you prepare for it.

How Do I Love You? 

How do I love you

With this heart of mine? 

What do I bring in

Befitting only for you? 
How do I love you

With love for no other? 

What words do I sing

Only for your praise? 


How do I love you

And stay true? 

To worship

With heartbeats meant for you. 


How do I love you

In the midst of the crowd? 

Making every moment with you

An enchanting memory to cherish.


How do I still love you

When there are no more ways to make you smile? 

How do I still please you

When time and life are done and are gone? 


A song I was writing which turned out to be a poem. 

So I Took a Break……. 

It’s really been a hectic week for me as I was ladened with so many decisions to make from few choices available. And while I managed to keep my head above water, I can’t shake the feeling that the outcome of some decisions will come back to haunt me. Whether I made the right ones or not, I guess time will reveal, but for now, I have to move on and keep blogging. 

Glad to be back. 

Monday’s Quotes. 

​But tomorrow is not just the day after today, in fact, tomorrow is just a concept of reality, created by the wind of uncertainty, the movement of the clock hand and a change in sky and weather. Tomorrow is an idea in our head which makes us believe that a day is coming, different from the present, where we get to see the results of our choices and the decisions we make, but one scary truth is, for some of us, our tomorrow could be yesterday. For some, our tomorrow could be the next minute, for some, our tomorrow may never come, and for some, our tomorrow could be  forever. 

Time: Friend or Foe? 

 

I was reading one of mine favorably blogs, eyesfrombehind and the writer did ask a question that anyone and everyone could easily answer without giving it much thought, but in when pondered on, we become so careful with our answers. In her original words,

In all of man’s extraordinary exploits — the advent of electricity, medicines, airplanes amongst others…we are yet to find a way to conquer, control or even contain Time. Time slips away from us, making us all its unwilling yet humble captives. Our lives depend on it, we work according to where it chooses to take us. Sometimes we don’t even have enough of it, other times it just seems to prolong its stay. We are trapped in its predictable chains, under its propelling force, and all of our desires and achievements are subject to its strong hold. We can not defeat time; its power is beyond things imaginable, the least we could do is try to manage it.
