Here I stand.

I stand bef0re a f0rk in the r0ad.
Wonderin?. .
Should i g0 left 0r right? Do i venture the path travelled 0r the side that's neva been t0uched?
Either way i d0nt kn0w where i'll end up
S0 i thr0w up my handz as i fall t0 my kneez
Dear Lord hear my cry, for i'm in need. My feet are at a stand still and cant proceed.
I've journeyd s0 far and i've given s0 much. I refuse t0 let my s0ul give up.
Love has dealt me many handz and i've managed alright. .
I'm n0t giving up the fight but this is a p0int 0f no return, that affects the rest 0f my life.
Guide me Lord to where i should be because only You kn0w.
Amen. .

Be Greatful.

I've read thIs somewhere jus wanted to share.....

There was a blind gal who hated herself and evry1, except her loving boyfrnd who always ther 4 her.

She told her boyfrnd, if i cud only c the world i wl marry u.

One day... Someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to c everythng, including her bf.

He asked her " now that u can c da world standwa sam wil u marry me?"

the gal looked at her bf & saw that he was blind, the sight of hs closed eyelids shockd her. She hasnt expected that, the thot of lookin at them the rest of her lyf led her to refuse to marry him.

Her bf left in tearz & days later he left a note to her saying " take gud care of my eyes, before they wer yourz they wer mine"

Ths is how human brain often works wen our status changes, only a few remembr wat life was b4 & who was always by their side in the most dark and painful situations....

Life is a gift we shud embrace it.

Today b4 u say any cruel word, thnk of sum1 who cnt speak.

B4 u complain about ur taste of ur food, thnk of sum1 who has nthng to eat.

B4 u complain about ur woman/man thnk of sum1 who's cryng to God for a companion.

B4 u complain about hw unfair lyf is, thnk of some1 who neva had an opportunity to live so long as u.

B4 u complain about your parents, thnk of sum1 who neva knew theirs.

B4 u complain & tired of your job. Thnk of those unemployed, disabled and those who wish they had yo own.

B4 u complain abt costy ur children are, thnk of sum1 who desires children bt they re barren.

B4 u argue about ur dirty house sum1 ddnt clean o swp, or complainin abt how small is it, thnk of those ppl who lives in da streets.

And wen depressing thots seem to get u down, put a smile on ur face and thank God u are live and stil around...

If My Life Was A Song. The Title Would B GrateFul!!!

10 most unexpected consequences of being online:

In recent weeks I discovered the true power of, it’s amazing- full of wonderful surprises.

10 most unexpected consequences of being online:

1. Spending so much time on social media- your day flies by and you forget to live.
2. Trying to complete your work and all of a sudden a new video pops into your notification box recommended by your friend a must see.
3. Being sucked into the online world.
4. Become a robot after sitting hours on end on the pc.
5. Find a really interesting article that really blows your mind.
6. Using online to currently be up to date internationally and at the end of the week, blown away by how much you’ve actually learnt.
7. Just love listen to the new girl Zahara,s album
8. random guy inviting me on from another country saying his coming to South Africa on holiday and would like to visit- really a ton bit weird.
9. Creating an unconscious online persona.
10. Receiving spam on gmail and after weeks only you decide to get frustrated.

Elephant in the Room

There's an elephant in the room
It is large and squatting, so it is hard to get around it.
Yet we squeeze by with, "How are you?" and "I'm fine."
And a thousand other forms of trivial chatter.
We talk about the weather.
We talk about work.
We talk about everything else-except the elephant in the room.

There's an elephant in the room.
We all know it is there.
We are thinking about the elephant as we talk.
It is constantly on our minds.
For you see, it is a very big elephant.
But we do not talk about the elephant in the room.
Oh, please, say his name.
Oh, please, let's talk about the elephant in the room.
For if we talk about his death,
Perhaps we can talk about his life.

Can I say "Dad" and not have you look away?
For if I cannot, you are leaving me
In a room...
With an elephant.

Conventional is a good fall back position.

Yes, conventional is a good fallback position because then you don’t stir the water, but you loose out on life’s excitement and experiences.

Who wants to loose out on the excitements and experiences life surprises you with…I for one, would rather take the up’s and down’s and curveballs life throws at me than be conventional. How boring mustn’t it be just to be who you are and nothing more or nothing less…being too afraid of trying something new, stepping away when someone gives you a challenge because your too afraid of failure.

Haven’t anyone told you that failure and disappointment is all part of life…yes we get hurt but that is the only way we learn how to do it better and become stronger. Life has so much excitement and experience that we must grab onto, test and enjoy and the last thing we must be is conventional…stir the water it may even become a storm, no matter how stormy the weather is, there is always sunshine on the horizon.

Saying Goodbye!!

He was someone’s son, brother, friend and uncle. And he was taken from us in a very brutal way.

Now it is all about asking questions and try and understand, but we will never get the right answers…someone came and took this super hero’s life from him when he couldn’t protect his own.

The most difficult part of saying goodbye is seeing those closest to him become weak, have no control over their emotions. For me it will always be the father figure who has to be the strongest and to see such a strong man crumble of pain really bring one back to reality…people die, but why?
Who gives someone else the right to come and take someone’s life, don’t they realise that person has a family and friends who will be left behind with sadness and questions…and that bring me to the thought of are we giving them the right to destroy what is ours, why don’t we fight back and claim our safety back, what are our world coming to and why are we letting it go this far?

He was a legend and may his legendary memories live on forever…as they said on his funeral, forget me not but let me go…we will never forget the good times.

Everyday is a good day!!

Everyday we wake up and have the power to determine how our day is going to be. We can choose to wake up on the right side of the bed and make the most out of the day ahead, regardless of the weather, appointments scheduled for the day or the deadlines we have to meet.

Each day brings another opportunity for us to right the wrong in our lives and turn each day into not only a good day but a great day. So often it is easy to wake up and think and feel the worst and dread getting out of our warm beds and facing reality, but we never know what the day will bring, who we will meet and whose life we may make an impression on.

Everyday is a good day to touch, feel and taste new experiences, each day we grow, not only physically but emotionally, each day we learn more about ourselves and our friends, everyday is a good day.

Everyday is a good day to meet new people, listen to a new song, buy a new outfit, eat a new seasonal fruit, paint our toe nails a new colour and even hear a new joke. Life is simply too short not to maximise every opportunity we have, to have a good day!

Our greatest strength is our weakess!!

The first thing I thought of when I read this was the saying “with great power comes great responsibility” because if one's greatest strength if not maintained and used in a positive way could turn out to be his greatest weakness.

So often it is seen that when people have a certain amount of power they don’t always use it in the most positive way.

My greatest strength is that I am very kind, yet it is also my greatest weakness. Now you might be thinking how on earth can someone be too kind, but the truth is it has got me into trouble plenty of times, I have no poker face so if someone asks me for something i give them or want my help i give them.

Another of my greatest strengths and weaknesses is my ability to continuously speak my mind. I am often told I call a spade a shovel and that I have no tact. Even though I know being honest is the best way, I need to know when to bite my tongue and when not to because what I say can often be hurtful and mean without me even realising.
