Lord knows I’ve had many clouds in my life, just like many of you I’m sure…That’s just the way it goes. Amid the clouds, God made it so to put the right people in my path at the right time to be a blessing to me. For that, I’m thankful so I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been a rainbow in my cloud. Just as they have been rainbows for me, I wish to be that for someone else and you can do the same. It doesn’t take much to do so. Be a blessing to someone else today by lending a helping hand, an ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on; by offering a smile to someone’s frown; by simply being there and being present or by sharing a kind and timely message. Be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.
Happy Tuesday! ❤️️️️️️️️xo
Maya Angelou knew what she was talking about when she said:
Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.
This quote is a great reminder that we must trust love again and again. You may have dealt with past hurts or broken trust that caused you to put your walls (all the way) up out of fear that you will get hurt again. But by doing so, you are denying yourself a chance at love which is the essence of life. It’s all about betting on yourself and taking risks…so why not work towards trusting again. When you begin to trust, you can begin to love and be loved. Trust makes love possible. Trust love one more time!
You might not always have people around to help you when you’re down and you might not be able to count on people when you need them most. It will be up to you to be your own ‘crutch’ and lift yourself up when you’re down, find your strength when you’re weak, find fullness when you’re empty or find yourself when you’re lost. This is part of your growth and testimony. Allow yourself to be there for YOU, to count on YOU, to trust YOU and to believe in YOU! It’s about time you start looking for yourself anyway. Right!? No one will take better care of you than YOU (and God of course!). It’s not about being selfish. It’s about loving yourself! Get your own back!
I got my own back. Do you have yours?
In honour of the late Maya Angelou, I wanted to share this simple yet powerful message to help awaken the “greatness” that is in you.
Do not conform to being the person you think you are and become the person that you know you are.
“Amazing” is in your DNA.
My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style. -Maya Angelou
Legendary author Maya Angelou said it best…We all hope to thrive in life while fulfilling our purpose but we have to remember to have fun, laugh and enjoy the ride along the way.
The renowned poet, novelist and actress whose work defied description under a simple label has passed away yesterday. Her legacy and work shall continue on forever. Her mission was accomplished, just as she had said.
R.I.P. Maya Angelou.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the beautiful mothers out there. Past, Present, New (Congrats Mona!) and Soon to Be Mothers!
A special shout out to the greatest of them all…I love you Mom!!! 💗💓💕💞💖💘
Thank you for your unconditional love, your compassion, all of the sacrifices and the labour you invested into us, your children…you are truly amazing!
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.”
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
(Proverbs 31:25-31 NIV)
Je t’aime mamy Chérie!
Be YOU! Be a STAR! Bring out the STAR in YOU! There is no fun in normal anyway 😉
