Legacy

history is written in the present. what is being written about you in the history books at this very moment?

you have a purpose here on earth. are you fulfilling it? if life is taken away from you today, what will the pages of history state about you?

your past is your legacy. being alive next year is not guaranteed. however, just in case you are granted additional time here on earth, ensure you build a legacy that will make you proud.

Journeys

we may be trying to reach the same destination, but each of us will have different life journeys. it will be easier, smoother, and faster for some of us.
for some persons, their life journey is travelled via airplane. for some, it is via helicopter. other persons have trains, cars, and motorcycles. some even have bicycles. don't lose hope if what you have to make your journey is a skateboard.

rivet your mind on your desired destination and journey on. put your foot on your skateboard and move. the race is not for the swift. that's because life is a road trip. enjoy the experiences along the way. learn from and laugh at your stumbles and stalls in life. keep pushing forward.

yes you may only have a skateboard, but there are some who wish they were in your situation. those are the ones who journey via walking. recognise the blessings in your life and journey on. your destination awaits. you will get there!

Love and life

our greatest earthly love should come from nature, not from man. seeing, hearing, or smelling the magnificence of nature should be our greatest love.

such love is unconditional. it will be there for us every day. it revives and replenishes us. it envigorates and energises us. this love is limitless and impossible to explore all of it. with every new part of this earth we explore, this love gets more fresh, more amazing; and more breathtaking.

sadly, like all true love, we take it for granted. every extra day we get to see, hear, or smell nature, we ignore it and simply move on with our daily routine. completely ungrateful and oblivious. completely consumed in our own existence and being.
all true love must be cherished, explored, and protected. let's take the time to acknowledge all the sources of true love in our life. let's reciprocate that true love. let's preserve it.

to love is to live. to truly love is to truly live.

The heart

someone's actions do not define them... their heart does. too often we react to what someone does or does not do for us. we react to what someone says or does not say to us. we have to look deeper.

we have to realise that sometimes the actions and the words are out of obligation, expectation, or reaction. whether the actions were good or bad, we should not allow ourselves to get consumed by them.

for some persons, doing good actions are as easy as breathing. time and money are endless for them. for some persons, saying sweet words flow as easily as the water down a waterfall. at times, the bad actions and bad words we receive, are a result of spur of the moment anger, misguided reaction, oversights, or camouflaged pain.

we have to realise that sometimes actions do not define people... their heart does. look inside, look at the pattern, look at the core of their heart. you will know when an action was done out of sacrificial or superficial love. you will know when the words spoken to you were out of random utterances in the moment, or out of deep seated anger or spite.

unfortunately, there are also times you have to realise that months and years of good actions and words did not define the person. their one bad action and bad word today, may have actually been the revelation of that person's true heart. a heart that was hidden from you all along.
take time to reflect and search your soul. be honest with your own self. look beneath the surface. examine if the person's actions and words were merely a reaction to yours, and you in fact may be the root of the problem.
haste is never the solution. time is your greatest ally when seeking clarity on words and actions.

someone's actions do not define them... their heart does... including yours.

Survival

i don't always have a positive outlook on life. sometimes i look around at everyone else and wonder how come others have things i wish i had. how come others accomplished what i would like to accomplish. how come others are enjoying the fruits of life and i am struggling. how come when i'm frustrated others are carefree. sometimes i'm very broken.

but... i realised i'm human. i realised i actually have blood flowing through my veins and i have emotions and feelings. i realised i'm actually quite normal. i realised that everyone else has struggles too. everyone else has disappointments and frustrations and sadness and battles. we are all the same.

our issues vary though. for some of us it is our health. for some of us it is our job. for some of us it is our relationship, our family and relatives. for some of us it is our finances. for some of us it is our substance abuse or addiction. for some of us it is a compulsive habit we can't stop. for some of us it is our failure to materialise our goals and dreams. for some of us it is our desire to find love. for some of us it is our children, or lack thereof.

when we look around at others, that may be the biggest injustice we may be doing to ourselves. we allow the glitter and glamour and smiles and successes of others to cloud our vision of their true reality. a reality that frankly we will never know unless they confide in us. it is behind closed doors and under the cover of the darkness of night, that persons both express and feel suppressed by their struggles. we cannot see the tears of others. we cannot hear the screams of others.
survival is what we are all struggling for. we are all fighting our own battles and issues. i am not alone. you are not alone. we are not alone. survival is our only option. we will and we must. survivors are we!

Sun or rain

in life, when there is rain, be prepared for sun. when there is sun, be prepared for rain. live your life in gratitude and hope at the same time. be prepared for the random coin toss of life every morning when you awake from sleep.

live your life like you have an umbrella. let your life shield you from the rays of the sun; while also letting your life shield you from the drops of rain. be prepared for any pain or joy life will throw your way.
don't go overboard with your joy and celebration when things go great, for disappointment and pain will surely surface at some point. don't drown yourself into depression and heartache when things go bad, for this wont last forever; your rainbow and your p*t of gold are sure to turn up.

whether sun or whether rain, acquire the tools in life to weather anything. live on!

There is beauty in peace

peace is contagious. when you share peace, others reciprocate it. peace is often the catalyst for a beautiful outcome.

have you ever had friction or an enemy-like relationship with someone and it converted into the most beautiful friendship? if yes, that was an example of the power of peace.
maintining enemies and feuds rob you of your valuable time that should be invested into your future happiness and goals. malice sidetracks you from remaining on course. a peaceful environment and a peaceful soul allow your aspirations to blossom.

target those who have ill will towards you. target those who envy you. target those who oppress you. target those who bring you pain. target those who victimise you. target all of them with peace. point them out. you have to be like an ace s****r and regulate everything under your control, and fire peace at the object you object to. even if you have to fire peace multiple times, eventually your target will give in and fire peace back at you.

there is beauty in peace. fire at will.

No excuses

what are your goals? say them out aloud!

why haven't you achieved them as yet?

any answer you give is an excuse. others have achieved the same goals. others have accomplished greater goals, in better timelines, and through greater adversity. whatever response you give is an excuse.

yes you are different. yes your situation is unique. yes, yes, and yes to all your possible responses. however, these two facts remain:
1. someone is always worse off than you.
2. someone already achieved your goal.

unless your goal is world record breaking, or something revolutionary for humanity like you developing a cure for cancer, your reasons for not accomplishing your goals are mere excuses.

you can get it done. you can achieve all your goals. start thinking outside the box. stop colouring within the lines. it's your goal, so make it happen. do what you must. you are capable. i know you can achieve it.

stop your excuses. focus and follow through.
i'm putting my confidence in you and sending you this message now:

congratulations on accomplishing your goal.

Cell phones

here i am quietly sitting in the waiting room using my cell phone. i look up and i notice everyone else seated here also have their faces down using their cell phones. wow. i didn't even notice the room got so full.

i can hear the sound of texting, coming from the phone of the lady seated next to me. this is the only disruption to the dead silence that surrounds me, apart from some persons saying good morning as they enter the room. as i'm looking around, i'm seeing persons of all ages and genders. no one is speaking with anyone else in the room. a room full of living, breathing human beings and everyone is focused on a small digital device in the secure grip of their hand... me included... what has our society come to? cell phones have messed us up. they control us, rather than we control them. we all have mouths and ears, which were once the most used parts of our bodies when we sit in waiting rooms with strangers. now the most used parts are our fingers. as i sit here typing, i'm noticing how skillful my thumbs have become.

oh my! two persons seated side by side just stared speaking to each other and laughing.... sigh. ironically, one of them is showing the other something on their phone. we as a society have allowed cell phones to become the focal point of our existence. at the rate we are going, we probably should have an international cell phone day, to raise awareness of the negative social impacts.

we need to increase our consciousness. we need to fight back. starting with me. i'm going to do it right now. i'm going to put down my cell phone and start a conversation with the guy seated to my left... #cellphone #communication #talk #convo #speak #chat #discussion #strangers #message #telephone #phone #cell #nottalking #conversation #text #socialmedia #socialbehaviour #post #motivation #motivationalquotes #inspiration #inspirationalquotes #communicate #obsession #compulsion #interaction #notalking #silence #talking #socialinteraction

Furtherhood (altruism)

there is always someone who is worse off than you. you are in a better position than they are; a position from which you can be of assistance to them. there is always someone whose future is dependent on you. the question is, can they depend on your altruism?

who do you lead?
who's hand do you hold and help along in this life?
who can say say you assisted them?
who can outstretch their hand to you and get their needs met?
who looks up to you?
who do you guide?

are you a human being or a human been? are you a human, being caring to humanity? or are you a human, who has been self-seeking?

always reach out, reach across, reach down, and reach back. there's always someone in need.

Minutes matter

some moments take our breath away, and some moments stay in our memories forever. when the perfect mood coincides with the perfect moment in time, with that special person in our life... we experience magic. minutes transform into unforgettable life moments.

it is often said that quality is better than quantity. however, with matters of the heart, both are equally desirable. legacies of love are built on individual moments of affection.
when we make a habit of not dedicating that extra minute for bonding, we eventually end up with an extra minute bond. love needs time to blossom, grow, and be sustained. every minute matters.

Shadows and light

when you stand in the shadows, you tend to see the most light. those of us who always seek attention and the spotlight, tend to only see the view we try to project to others, rather than seeing the reality... our vision gets obscured.

taking a step back always allows us a larger perspective. taking a few more steps all the way back into a vantage spot away from the glitter, glamour, action, and drama, gives us clarity of sight and thought.

sunburn peels away our skin after the fact. standing in the shade allows us to peel away the superficial layers of life events, while they unfold. in fact, when we master standing in the shadows and spending time reflecting objectively, we find ourselves peeling away layers of future outcomes, before they materialise in reality. life lights up, and we begin to bend light and see around corners.
