Open your hands

“Open your hands if you want to be held.”

Rumi

This resonates with me today. I will be brave and ask people to help me. After all, my life or even something like making a book will be richer, touched by the talents of others ♥️ #faith #love #humility

Love and doubt

“Love and doubt have never been on speaking terms.”

Khalil Gilbran

Lots of incredible things happening in the world. People wanting many different things from us. My compass for my life is within me. Let me align that with my calling. ♥️

Priority

At this point, it is about time management. Allocate pockets of time during the week to specific tasks that need my undivided attention.

I know that this is a poetry blog, so I thank you so much for your support and understanding as I write and edit my poetry book. This week I give you this sweet quote:

“You will always find all the time you need in the world to do what you love. If you can’t find the time, it’s not important for you.”
Bangambiki Habyarimana, Book of Wisdom.

I love that ❤️

Do you have new dreams?

“The state of your life is nothing more than a reflection of your state of mind.”

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

Let me check myself, my life, as I look around my home:
How important is my overall health to me?
What and who am I engaging with?
What am I worth?
What do I need?
Peace and love at home, healthy relationships, a thriving business…?

This quote implies that I have the power of choice:
What am I telling myself each day?
As I grow and change, what are the things that I believe?
Are these beliefs serving me the life of my dreams?
Do I have new dreams?

Oh and let me take time to appreciate how far I have come and acknowledge how many dreams have already come true ❤

Focus

“When walking, walk. When eating, eat.”

Zen Proverb

So simple and yet so profound. Indeed, it is the distractions that make life quite miserable. How invigorating it is when I am in that zone; concentrating on editing my book, turning it this way and that and watching that focus attract other useful material. I witness my book come to life and it is like magic.

The book that you need

I am making pockets of time to birth a coherent story through the poems that I have written over a period of about 4 years. It’s summertime and all I want is to be out, but I know that I need this story. I need this book. It is teaching me, moulding me and showing me what is important in my life.

“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”

Toni Morrison
