Will You Remember Me?

“I wanna know, will you remember me when forever comes and goes?” #Promises

This little poem, if you want to call it that, in question form was written and posted back on October 25, 2016 right here on this site. It is now four years later and the question still lingers although I think we all deep down inside know the answer.

We have all made promises to do this or that. Promises we swore we would keep forever.

“In the end forever comes and goes.” #Promises

As time marches on we are often left alone, holding onto the empty promises. Promises made by others and those we made ourselves. Or perhaps we broke our own promises with our own hands.

Either way, I believe the question can still remain and it often haunts each of us.

“Will you remember me?” #Promises

I believe the answer is YES!

The impact we make on others, whether good or bad, will be long remembered. There is never a neutral encounter, make your impact a positive one! And when they remember you, it brings smile to their face and a joy within their heart. ❤

HOPE, it is no small thing!

“Hope Lives”

In the safety of this present darkness

Holding on in the midst of the black

In the place where I hide my madness

From there hope will lead me back

Be a Light!

Shine so bright they cannot ignore you!

Shine Bright

You can be and are a light shining in someone’s darkness, never doubt that. You were created to be a light, to shine in the darkness that covers our world and seeps into our hearts. Let your light shine, let it illuminate the darkness.

The world needs people who have come alive and aren’t afraid to shine and share their light. There is enough darkness to go around and you can make a difference. #JustBelieve #HopeLives #BeALight

The REALITY is that…

Those who succeed are the ones who are willing to put in the work. The work, the practice, the showing up is often overwhelming and progress is slow. Yet, if we keep at it and as John Maxwell says pay the price and do it consistently, the final result can be

AMAZING!

Do Not Fear…

The phrase “Do not fear” in one form or another occurs in the bible hundreds of times from Genesis to Revelation and Jesus says “Do not fear” fourteen times. If I may be so bold as to paraphrase Jesus in the vernacular of today and in relation to our current situation.

“CHILL OUT!”

“I have this all under control.”

There is a peace beyond understanding and I pray this for all who are reading this now in the days to come. It is a crazy, mixed up, shook up world right now and we all need strength to face what this way comes. Treating each other as fellow brothers and sisters, not as political ideologies and social agendas. As C.S Lewis said,

“There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations – these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub and exploit – immortal horrors or everlasting splendors.”

Magical Moments

It was a kind of magic
When hope springs eternal before
dying in the colors of autumn
For the magic is never meant to last

Our lives are comprised of moments that make up a lifetime. Some happy, some sad, some challenging and some… well, I don’t want to miss even one. ~M #Quote #MotivationMonday #MondayBlogs #Poetry

Do You Believe in Fairy Tales?

Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed. ~G.K. Chesterton #Quote #MotivationMonday #MondayBlogs

Dragons do not only exist in fairy tales.

Dragons are real and they exist.

Dragons can be beaten.

It is time to believe in fairy tales again, for the dragon is at our door. He is real, he exists, we must believe and fight with the faith of a child, always believing he can be beaten. ~M #WarriorPoets #Quote #MotivationMonday

Keep it Simple – Motivation Monday

Sometimes the best thing we can do is to keep it simple…

A simple life is often a wonderful life! #Quote #Motivation Monday #MondayBlogs

I know that I often over complicate things which only serves to make my life harder. To let go of the shoulds, the coulds, the musts and the expectations we place on ourselves so easily. The flowers and the trees do not worry about tomorrow they seek the sun and dance in the wind, knowing not what the day will bring. They marvel in the now and live today, may we all do the same for today will too soon be gone.
