I’m Back….Been a Long While….

Haven’t posted on this my dear blog for an awfully long time…..

Isaiah 49:15 ’Can a woman forget her infant…?’

Oh my!!! I feel like I am that woman, who seemingly ‘forgot’ her infant, her baby….

My blog has been out here not being ‘fed’…no fresh content….and as such, I feel I’ve stunted her growth…

What really happened?
What stopped me?
Why haven’t I posted in such a long time?
Did I get so busy?
Did motivation take a back seat?
Did inspiration fly out the window and go with the wind?
Have I been….mmmhh…lazy?

I may sit trying to come up with a good reason for not posting, but there is no reason to well explain my absence on this space….I will not give any explanation to me, they’ll just be excuses.

Every other day, the thoughts that I neglected my dear blog haunt me…Today I take that bold step, getting back to her…

I will pick up from where I stopped…and bear this in mind  >>>>  https://felicityshiro.wordpress.com/2011/02/05/my-blogmy-babymy-tot/

Everyday Quotes…

 

Whatever I get to read, I capture something from it…
Something inspiring, something motivational it may be…

I came across an article, not from my everyday kind of reading material but it was real nice…

‘How To Adopt a Sales Mindset’ was the title..how I got to click on the link to the article..well just curiosity…’what’s this all about’
Turned out to be a nice read…

Some quotes I got from the article I need to remember and I share here:

‘Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude’
‘It may not be your fault for being down, but it is certainly your fault for not getting up’
‘You have to be a believer to be an achiever’
‘You can’t buy a good reputation — you must earn it’
‘I have never known anyone to buy from someone they don’t like’
‘You never get a second chance to make a good first impression’
‘Winners set goals; losers make excuses’
‘Goals give you more than a reason to get up in the morning’
‘Take care of the customers you’ve got, and they’ll take care of you’
‘You don’t go to school once for a lifetime. You are in school all your life’

I could go on and on…that’s it for now…some quotes are for one to live by..Everyday/ Any day quotes they may be called…

Forgotten Pass…

Saturday, 1st October…a day I won’t forget any time soon….
I happened to be on duty, scheduled to report at 7a.m…quite early for a Saturday…no problem though.
Early enough,I left the house, getting to work in time wouldn’t be a problem.

It was like half way to work place that it clicked within me that I could have forgotten something…something important…you know the kind of instincts that just hit so strongly you fear the confirmation of your fears…

I didn’t want to check in my handbag for the confirmation of my fears…that I could have forgotten my pass..the one card one needs to pass through every other door at work place, starting at the main entrance!

As I drew closer to my destination, I had to check…What a relief it would have been if I could have found my swipe card somewhere in the handbag…it wasn’t the case…My card was no where to be found…ascertaining that I had forgotten it…

‘If there could be anything I could do to miraculously have it with me, I could do exactly that…’ …I thought…

Getting to the gate, I told the guard on duty that I had forgotten my pass…she directed me to go see the chief security guard on duty…but first, I had to call my colleague who I was going to release to come to the main entrance to and tell them that I indeed work in that department…

Heading to the the chief guard on duty, I was hoping for the best even in that could be worst situation- being disallowed in…

I briefly explained to him what the matter was..instead of getting mad at me, he smiled, and went on to narrate about his predicament of forgetting his pass just yesterday…

I was allowed in, to share my colleagues’ pass for the day. Luckily, one’s inside the department’s floor, one can stay indoors all day long…no need to go outside, necessitating door opening cards…

That was close…but a miracle happened…It’s not everyday that a case of a forgotten pass is excused…

I thank God for that chief guard on duty, who having been in a similar situation the previous day, he well identified with my problem…

From that experience, I’d rather forget something else, but not the pass…

Warmth Nap…

From bright and warm,
To dull and cold,
The weather quickly changed…
And so it stayed….

In the afternoon,
Just before it rained,
Gladly I got home…

Dull weather and power out,
Quite dark it was indoors…

Surroundings too cold for comfort,
Sleep kind of beckoned,
Obeyed it, no restraints…

Nice ‘Warmth nap’ I had…

By time I awoke,
Night time was in…

Easy Writes…’Sometimes’…

My ‘Sometimes’ posts have been easy, fun writes….
I can go on and on with them for I have lots of ‘sometimes ‘,
I acknowledge all these sometimes for they make my days….each at it’s time or several at play together….

Some ‘Sometimes’ make life interesting, hence worthwhile every moment, yet others make one question the very essence of it….when it’s like one is barely existing…for there seems to be no, what would really be termed as ‘Life’ in the days…But then, these ‘low/bad/down sometimes’ make one appreciate the ‘good sometimes’ when they show up…all on the same, one can only hope the ‘down sometimes’ proves to be worthwhile in the long run, as meaningless as they may be during their time…

Sometime I will get down again to ‘Sometimes’ posts, and see what about me may have changed between then and now…I can only look forward to all the better ‘sometimes’…

As I do this…’Sometimes I feel like going to College, Sometimes, I don’t wanna go to class’ ….I’m experiencing the latter today…no big deal though…today could just have been recap of stuff we’ve been learning, plus being on a Friday, most have the ‘Friday mentality’ so the class is usually so brief….as for me though, I make good of every minute, and even when others leave class early, there’s always something I can do….on the Internet which is very fast at College and unlimited…it’s always good time to indulge in my ‘net surfing’ pastime….as long as I’m online there’s always one thing or the other can check out…

Depression is Made of This…

  • When the sun’s shining and you seem neither to see its brightness nor feel its warmth…
  • When you hear the birds singing and it sounds like noise…
  • When life’s realities become comparable to nightmares …
  • When if it’s not tears flowing in their volumes, then it’s a stinging in the eyes and they look all watery /teary
  • When you remember the verse ‘Tears are my food day and night’, you know too well how that is and how they taste…
  • When one of the most comforting verses is ‘You keep track of all my all my sorrows, You have collected all my tears in a bottle’~ Psalms 56:8
  • When there is such pain within, a pain you can’t put a finger on, but it’s there…
  • When you are so hurting and no words can explain the extent and intensity of it…
  • When you have a dizziness that won’t just leave…
  • When you just want to lie down and hope sleep takes you up to wherever it takes someone and hope not to wake up any soon
  • When you don’t want to look at yourself on the mirror, scared of seeing the dreadful look
  • When you look at your pictures of days gone and seeing the beautiful smiles and cheerful looks you wonder whether there were really such times…
  • Memories of beautiful days come to mind and you see a picture of yourself in your mind and it’s like just a sculpture of sorts…
  • When you try to do what there is to be done, but you can’t focus…concentration equals nil…
  • When you hear or see people laughing and wonder what there is to laugh about…
  • When you get to be really sad, you don’t wanna say a thing…
  • When you try to talk, no voice seems to come out..it’s like your vocal codes are gagged…
  • When nothing seems to taste good, be it food or drink…
  • When you don’t look forward to tomorrow for the pain today is bad enough already
  • When you are utterly scared of what may come to be
  • When nothing seems to make sense at all…

What to do when these and more are facts in ones life…

When all this and more along these lines is what you are going through,
It indicates something, the something being some sort of depression.
It’s good to acknowledge what you are going through; realizing there is a problem, for it’s is the first step towards healing…

What better time to come to terms with all this but this Easter Season…Taking it all to Jesus, He who is able to set free from all the chains binding, calm the storms causing these situations, get you out of these less than desirable situations that seem to be holding one down…

Cast all your care upon Him, for He cares for you ~ 1Peter 5:7

God cares about all that I’m going through, up to the last details, I will wait on Him. May He lead and guide me, letting me know what this is all about…is there any significance to all these?

I can only look forward to sing out the verse that says ‘He Has turned my mourning into dancing again’

Go A.P.R.I.L…

 

It’s another month!
With March over,
It’s on to April,
Goodbye March,
Hello April!

March was around for thirty one days yes, but, within those days quite a lot happened. As for me, looking back, and reviewing my blog posts, I wouldn’t say it was an easy month. Despite all that it served, by God’s grace, here I am onto another month.

I’m thankful that it was another month that I managed to keep the discipline of posting daily on this blog. Some days I feel quite blank, given the seemingly eventless like life I may be leading, but despite that, I’ve always been able to come up with something to post, by just looking around me, thinking on some day to day issues, reflecting on self…etc there’s bound to be some inspiration from somewhere… I couldn’t afford to go against my commitment to post daily and I look forward to doing the same in days to come.

This month has started on a tough note, given that there are exams to study for coming next week, but it’ll easy up I believe….

There are hopes for this month and carry forward expectations from the past months…All one can look forward to, is their fulfillment…

With April here, and the year getting older, the way to go is, A.P.R.I.L:

Activate and actuate your faith
Prayerfully, proportionately to expectations
Remember rewards are imminent
In due course…believe…
Limitless are His blessings!

Cheers! To a new month! To April 2011!
