Shine your light on the world

There are many types of drama, comedy, tragedy, tragicomedy, melodrama romantic, absurdist, brechtian and boal, just to name a few.

You have the inner power to create the life you wish to live, the play which you can write. It does not matter what stage of life you are at, the important thing is to know you can decide what your play will be. We know that the past is behind us, but how many of us are still living there?  Remember only the beauty of the past, don’t stay there, for it is gone. 

In my life I am the play, the audience and the author.   For 99% of the time I can decide what drama I will allow to come into my life. How I will react, what I may accept or reject.   I can start out each day with a new play of the life I wish to live. How I wish to show up in the world, accepting that I am 100% responsible for the changes I wish to create in my life. Knowing that change is in my hands and with nobody else.  


Just finished “Becoming Michelle Obama”.  This is a beautiful true story of a very genuine lady. I found it to be a great read.

Keep your questions simple!

It is always important to ask simple questions, two such questions are , Why…… and What……….?

Merry Christmas to you all!

You know when you are in Dublin!

While in a Dublin Shopping Centre and walking up a stair way I overheard a mother taking to her young child, who was racing ahead of her up the stair way  “ If you go out of my sight and you get kidnapped I won’t come looking for you”

This remind me of another saying “ If you fall off that wall and break your legs, don’t coming running to me looking for sympathy

Look Within not Without

When your heart hurts because you are feeling sad, sit quietly and rest for a while

Your heart will beat from within you and remind you that you are beautiful inside

Seeking in your life the approval of others will not mend your heart, this will only prolong your pain

Sit with your place of quietness and kindness to the self

For the beauty of self is always within

Stay quiet and look deeper inside for the forgiveness of any fault that you may feel is yours

It is from the deepness within, that your soul will find you to forgive, if you need it

Your soul will awaken the solution to your sadness and cure your hurt

Your soul will not forsake you when you seek its guiding light even from your darkness

Look within not without

We want to hear your good idea

Chatting today with a colleague when she reminded me that a bureaucracy is something that lulls a good idea into a cul de sac and quietly strangles it!  

If you really want people to share their good ideas, please ensure that you don’t quietly strangle in the process.

Finally Got it Fixed

Since February this year I have had an issue with adding and editing new blog post.  Today I got it fixed with the support of www.upwork.com. Well done and thanks for your help.

Children – Kahlil Gibran

After publishing my poem Not Easy Being Me! – a few weeks back, the other day I pick up the book – The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran.  I was reading his piece on Children and thought I would share with you.

And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, Speak to us of Children.

And he said:

Your children are not your children. 

They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.

They come through you but not from you, and though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts, for they have their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies but not their souls.

For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.

For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.

The Archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.

Let your bending in the Archer’s hand be for gladness:

For even as He love the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.
