#Writer’s Quote Wednesday on a Thursday

Standard

I’m not sure I’m at my best this period as I’m trying to recover and regain my passion for keeping up the pace. So you could comfortably say I also need a bit of inspiration today. But however I achieve that, I must drop something for others, so they can be guided.

Colleen, don’t be too kind and I know you won’t be harsh either in your assessment.

#Writer’s Quote Wednesday on a Thursday

Colleen is back and I’m glad. I missed her but not so much because you could feel her touch oozing through Ronovan’s pore with his own dexterity. Great team I must say!

Well I read her #WQW for this week and I smiled because it was simple and straight to the point and I totally loved it. A great quote, I felt like I wrote it as Yescheilyah Ysrayl told the truth about the intricacies of writing.

Writer's Quote Wednesday_251115

I thought of using someone’s quote yesterday but decided to write mine and here’s my thought on this one. Rather than act without giving thoughts to what you want to do, my call is to thoroughly think it through (back and forth if you must, run it by some trusted brains – this doesn’t mean you have to accept their suggestions though) and then take a stand. If we do this often, we won’t open our mouths in foolishness, let our anger escape seamlessly and remain imprinted in someone’s memory making our remembrance in their heart a pain. All I’m saying dear writer…put yourself in their shoes, walk around a bit, come back return it to them and walk in yours, then let it all out (filtered sometimes and I’m smiling cos I need to do this too).

I wonder what Colleen has to say about this today?

Writer's Quote Wednesday_191115 I’m thinking aloud, so loud that you can hear my thoughts and I’m asking you…are your feet BEAUTIFUL?

Certainly!

The finest ever!

Dainty…pristine like that of a princess.

And I ask the next question, do preach PEACE?! Can someone, anyone point at you and say that’s a PEACEMAKER. In a world going bonkers with everyone wanting to be heard whether what they say is okay for all (to a great extent) or a select few. Do you seek peace?

And I’m also wondering how many beautiful-footed writers we have; those who delight in peace? Well, I was hoping not to say much today, but to get you to think whilst you do what you do best.

As you have a re-think and probably refocus how you preach what you preach, Colleen and friends have something they want to share with you and it’s all at the #WQW

Tuesday Thoughts_121115 I have a friend who is a fanatic for CHANGE and I totally support her. Anything that hinders peace, equality, justice etc. she fights – not with arms and ammunitions but with words and facts. I’m also surrounded by a Pastor who is a TRANSFORMER…believes in transforming lives, making impacts and investing in minds, motivating us to engage the system, question it and place demands on what we expect. Be the change we seek whilst waiting for government (if we so desire). Pastor Paul teaches us to be active while ‘waiting’ and make a difference!

It is on this note I daily write about life, love and laughter. Is life all beautiful, sunny and full of rhythm and blues? No! It has dull, dark days that rains made so and sometimes, it’s Soul and Jazz that rends the air. Regardless of what life offers, I will continually make my sphere beautiful and full of humour…probably why I said yes to a King that makes me laugh at every turn (and annoys me in the same vein tongue out).

Like Bob, if those bent on destroying the world aren’t tired, why should I? Last week was fun with Ronovan and we almost didn’t miss Colleen, but you need to visit #WQW to find out what I’m talking about. By the way Colleen you made a good choice, Ronovan knows what is doing.

Writer's Quote Wednesday_041115Listening to Dr. Cindy Trimm preach the word titled “How big is your Faith?” She made this comment “We understand from a quote ‘that the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world’. But what happens when the hand is broken? What happens to the world?” and it set me thinking about how we can easily take care-givers for granted and also our seed.

I will deal with the issue of the HAND. Back in school, we were taught that ‘the pen is mightier than the sword’ and I liked the power having a pen would give me. Over the years, it has moved from pen to typing on the keyboard, but one thing was constant and that is projecting on paper what I want to see in reality. I do not have rose-colored glasses on, but I simply love life and believe in God and in the creative-abilities He has given to each of us. However you choose to utilise yours is up to you! I have friends who engage their creativity towards bringing about CHANGE, check one here; others use beauty to make you want to stay alive via their pictures!

Like Dr. Trimm says in her quote and I add, its up to you to maximize every potential in that seed that is in your care. Listening to her as she concludes, “If you don’t want to see it in your future, don’t talk about it now.” I’m not sure how I’ve inspired you today, but I’m sure you will find more at Colleen’s treatment room and others like you there #WQW

#Writer’s Quote Wednesday

Standard

Unless you are truly blind ( no insult to the visually impaired), by this I mean unless you are truly numb to any and everything happening around you – meaning you are dead – there is no way you will not find inspiration! It’s in the ‘silly’ conversation with a child or a joke, the inscription on a car or a billboard or in a serious conversation that involves intellectuals. It is always there.

Today I take my quote from the very BOOK, the Bible. Pardon me if you are not a fan, but I can’t help it. And it says…

Writer's Quote Wednesday_281015

And I’m thinking…that is pure undiluted truth, words of wisdom and inspiration hitting us right in the face. Man is likened to grass which will wither (sooner or later). You may be remembered, depending on the impact you made (positively or negatively) but to be remembered for a really long time…

WRITE IT DOWN and send it out!

Document what it is you want to share. Make it something that will not make you cringe if you were to wake up from the dead and read it or hear it. Shakespeare has been long gone. Dr. Myles Munroe has moved on, but the words they wrote, shared, are still being used daily – almost. Remember, “words create, send your words out with purpose.” That’s my creation to you today!

*Colleen is a bit busy this period but we wish her much grace as she moves and settles in. Check out what she’s been up to at #WQW

#Writer’s Quote Wednesday

I know Colleen missed me! I’m almost tempted to say she missed me more than I missed her. LOL! Good news is I’m back! It’s #WQW today, and before I went AWOL, I had promised her to do a quote that was Colleen-inspired.

Writer's Quote Wednesday_211015Further to one of my earlier quotes, Colleen said this and it was mind-blowing…I can bet you she didn’t even realised she had said something worth repeating. I will rehash it in our ears, as most of us need to be reminded that life will always offer us opportunities to exhibit our gifts. It is one thing to prepare for the time of your showing forth, another to be able to handle limelight and yet another to co-ordinate the times you are ‘just-you-without-the-cheering-maddening-crowd!’

But like Colleen encourages us, when you find the balance attached to your gifts, only then do you truly ENJOY that gift and become a gift to others. This is my gift to you today <3.
