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.

Extract from The Prophet – Kahlil Gibran  – Children

Your Inner Child

Trust in your inner child for it is your soul. Until you follow where it wants you to be, your inner child will continue to nag at you to see your way forward. It may bring hurt and sadness from time to time, but it’s the journey you will eventually follow. In the end it is only guiding you towards growth and happiness. Be kind to yourself along the way and seek the courage within you to follow that beautiful inner child.

Not Easy Being Me!

Not Easy Being Me

So Mum and Dad what can I said

I grow and change now everyday

Trying to find out who I am and where I fit in

Looking for answers but where do I begin

You see these changes in me and yet you still don’t understand

Its support I need right now not that back of your hand

I’m not you, only from you and this you must see

Stop trying to make me like you wanted to be,

Let me be just me

I feel your love but it must come free of your conditions

Did you not learn from your parents when you were in the same position

So Mum and dad what can I say

I am growing further away from you every day


Is this natural when you were young were you not the same

Let me be to understand this world of youth

You know it will not be long before I have to find out the truth

So Mum and Dad what can I say

Just love me and let me for now be this way

From the poetry book – Changing The Way I am

Trying to get it back together.

I want to wish you all a very happy new year and only good things in your life for 2019.


Riders Retreat

British Columbia (BC) is famous for some of the most exciting, spectacular and scenic motorbike roads.  BC proudly promotes of over 85 motorcycle routes.  I have had the pleasure of  travelling on several of these routes.  Recently, I rode to Nakusp, Kaslo and back through Revelstoke. Staying two nights at the Riders Retreat in Nakusp. What a great place to stay.

Meeting other bikers and sharing stories of the places that they have travelled.  Sitting around the camp fire at night with great music and songs, reminded me of the craic in the pubs in Ireland. 

The Riders Retreat is a very welcoming place, excellent facilities, extremely friendly and a very professional family managed Campground.  It is a must stop over campground for any bikers.  Plus, the beautiful town of Nakusp sits on the shores of the Upper Arrow Lake. It is certainly on my list as a great base, for the next few motorbike trips.
