2021 The Year That Was.

  One day at a time. At the start of this year, things seemed hopeful with plans for the betterment of life and hope that the year ahead would bring much relief but it becomes clear that dreams are just that, dreams are not reality and easily fade away from memory. Finding Self and I can only look at the cross of Christ. So many circumstances and events occur around me I choose not what comes my way. I have encountered many a situation unwelcome. Fighting off some challenges in some places successful, but with some unknown forces in this year still continuing to follow my life in their insipid hopes that they think could destroy the happiness I am trying so hard to keep in my life by intentionally sending me nonsensical and unnecessary text messages from different numbers that I have tried so hard to just ignore. I am only human and at times such does affect my train of thought that I sometimes wonder who I am simply based on my very own reactions. I often wonder how I come across to s

Just remember that you are loved.

 You have your past which has shaped you into the person you are today - yet still your past is gone, but love remains strong. It is your past that has shaped you and has made you strong enough to stand up for the person that you are today. The values you hold on so true that define you, have brought out a marvellous gem of that which is you. You are surrounded by those who love you and care deeply for you and continue to care even more about you today even much more than yesterday. Some who have only now just arrived in your life but care for you deeper than you may ever know. Just remember, you are loved.


  My thoughts, I own them. My life to live, bold and confidant. My path and I will walk it. My journey, my destination to reach. This is my story and only I can let it be known. The past unchangeable, Only to build better with each day. Hopes, dreams, and positive affirmations create the amazing things to come, I hold on. Through the storm and through the peace, I learn. It is just a moment, and it is with each moment that change begins. There is no such thing as an end.   The heart must love, the mind open to exploring. The flesh nourished but must be controlled. Thoughts and actions bring realities into being. You can only do your best,   Keep on keeping on. Remember, life goes on.  

Coconut Head.

I shaved my head, then he said, You have a coconut head. At best of what he said, I had to hear the rest. I thought to call the priest, as this man was being a beast. As he said, “Oh forgive me, coconuts do grow a beard! of which, you cannot be assured." He has an idea that involves the rear, of which I dare not put into gear. I have adhered I cannot grow a beard. As for my coconut head,  Sheared it shall be.   Me and my coconut head.

Welcome to the sound of silence.

It has been just over one year of this novel coronavirus, the covid-19, which has felt like a year of absolute silence. It is more than a year now that the world looked deep into the eyes of a worldwide pandemic and wondered what was to become of such an event taking place over this earth. Lockdowns, curfews, and restrictions became the order of the day. This novel coronavirus, this covid-19 as it is also known, was this time last year only beginning to sweep through the earth and on this day last year, 4 th March 2020, the World Health Organization said, the number of reported cases of people infected stood at 92,943, with 3,160 people dead from the virus. At that time, those were the worldwide figures and the virus had already reached 81 countries. Globally, as of today 4 March 2021, there have been 114,653,749 confirmed cases of covid-19, including 2,550,500 deaths, this reported by the World Health Organization, and sadly the numbers continue to rise. So much can be heard in the

Errors upon errors and the consequence thereof

Looking back at this past week it seems I have been having incredibly early mornings, regardless of the lack of sleep, my heart rejoices that I got to at least accomplish set tasks for each day. One may feel exhausted after completing set duties, but that up-to-date charged-up feeling, always welcome. Brings to mind days waking up early morning during school days, such as memories of junior high school where we would have weekly tests based on that chapter of learning during the week.  I didn’t favour those weekly tests because if you failed on some of the questions, one was given the chance to go back and do the corrections. Not that it changed the initial mark record. I’m guessing it was a way of making sure you get to fully understand what has been taught and hopefully gain some sort of knowledge through those exercises. To Err is human. The remainder of the line, “to forgive divine.”  But I don’t want to dwell on that part of forgiveness just yet. We all have made mistakes in
