Light at the end of the tunnel


Life isn't always at it's best because dreams could be crushed and hearts broken with any kind of let down. You may be just about to give up as you cling to shreds of your life, trying to find for something with the hope of getting back up again. Finding the light at the end of the tunnel is possible if you seek it, so hang in there. 

Realize that whatever you may be going through can be overcome eventually...cultivate patience. Life is like the sea, it can be calm and it can be fiercely rough, has it's ups and downs and nothing is permanent. It will get better at some point. Being patient helps you to ponder on things calmly.  This state of mind is temporary and happiness is a choice. So if you refuse to believe you are suffering, you really cannot suffer. 

Be positive, and this is not denial of the situation, it is about balancing your loss for what you still have and getting out of the rut gradually. It is about looking for the good behind the bad and being grateful for what you still have in your life like health, family, friends, a helping hand and most of all, life itself, to be able to wake up to another new day. You can inspire another person by pulling through than giving in to despair. Whatever it is that makes you unhappy, remove it from your life and take control of whatever you can control. Plan to move towards that light at the end of the tunnel by getting beyond whatever it is that is pulling you back. Find for HEALTHY escapes to maintain a sane and peaceful mind...be it spiritual or activities to engage in. Be strong to to say NO to temptation to engage in unhealthy and wrong escapes which will only pull you down deeper or into a new darkness. 

Much love...

Love isn't always Magic


As I walked the streets of Canterbury last weekend, I observed two youngsters writing in chalk on the walkway little bits of poetry, haiku, quotes and phrases all along the street. I really appreciate such creativity...a really unique way of expression. Very few people stopped to read these bits of words shared, and most just ignored it and walked on. It is really a pity that many these days forget to appreciate and enjoy the simple things or 'stop to smell the roses' in life. I read everything that was in my path and even snapped a few with my iPhone. "Love isn't always magic"....I guess this is true in reality ...but I am too much of a romantic at heart to want to believe it and this can be really tragic at times. 

Much love,
