Most of us are in a battle with our demons,
Still learning how to undo years of emotional pain,
Still learning to rise above the triggers,
Still trying to become the best versions of ourselves.
It's very important to not lose your individuality in any case. Those who understand that and in fact, help you grow or discover yourself are the ones who deserve your time and energy. In the meanwhile, make sure that you yourself are not hindering your growth regardless of who's there or not.
Dance to your own music.
And as for the music, listen to your heart.
Whatever makes you feel alive.
Ain't nobody got time for anything less than that.
Jealousy feels ugly
I’ll keep to myself
Configure a machine that loves with out possessive tendencies
Pressure isn’t friendly-or comforting
I found a window, unlatched
I made use of the open space
And gently taught myself how to fall at a logical pace
If there’s a sharp pain in your chest
Maybe you miss me
It’s easier to plummet and plant roots
I don’t know about you but,
I’d rather admire the city
before branching out
The daily grind can take a toll on the soul.
That much heavy will eventually weigh you down.
The world can wait.
It is important that you don’t forget who is in control.

I know that by the time I wake up there will be a text from one of my girls and at least once a week a text from my mother.
I wake up every day and check my phone. Sometimes they are checking on me, tht need my advice or they want to share something that has made them smile or frown.
Three generations separated by distance and brought together by technology.
Writing to you from sunny South Africa, only it's a beautifully overcast day today!
Days like these — with the just fallen rain scent in the air, and the shaded out sun to cool things down... This is my happy weather!
Alas the temperate conditions are not my get-up-motivator.
Firstly: this is the day the Lord has made.
Secondly: His mercies are new today.
Third: Joy cometh in the morning.
I remind myself of these promises, and then whatever caused me to have a less-than-optimal day the day before — becomes obsolete.
Because today itself has the potential to become a memory worthy of being a nostalgic keepsake.
Every Dawn I leave my bed
When cocks start crowing.
My ears enjoy musics from the birds
While the Sun begins smiling.
What makes you get up in the morning? What is something you look forward seeing or doing every day?
Tell us about it and tag your letter "positivity".
Let's share some positive vibes this week!
Some days are good.
Other days we have to remember those good times and keep going on, no matter what.
Yesterday, a friend asked me “ what is your happy place?”
I thought for a while and realised that I didn’t have an answer.
Its been a while since I’ve stopped, to absorb everything that has been happening. Its been a while since I’ve stopped, to look back and reflect.
I’ve kept myself distracted, always busy with something, kept myself from thinking, from crying, from screaming, from feeling.
Its all coming back now, slowly and painfully, and all I want to do is runaway.
I’ve kept myself surrounded with people, friends, family and even strangers.
I’ve always loved being in solitude but this time I felt lonely. I wante...
Be in the process of positive change by unfolding in fulfilling ways allowing only good to come to you.
Maybe it's time to collect our broken pieces and walk on.
Memories are bittersweet & will stay forever till your death bed but if there is a slightest chance that future can hold something better, then why not be a little selfish & just give it a shot!
Afterall the choice is in our hand, how to spend the rest of our life.
You must never fear the future.
Embrace tomorrow with a fire in your belly
and a spirit strong enough to break down walls
and you'll never fail.

When your life stops, when everything seems to be falling apart, understand that it is you, who has the power, to continue the battle, that comes within yourself. You are a warrior, and strong enough. You can win what your heart desires. Once you have a positive outlook towards yourself, after you can only have a positive life.
Keep it simple, keep it positive.
Love yourself, because you matter!
I’m truly sorry this time.
I wanted so badly to fall in love with you but the universe had other plans.
My heart really did try to open up, but when the odds started to feel stacked against us it was overwhelming.
You have to admit, things sure went south when we tried to reopen that door.
In my heart I truly want you to be happy. And as much as you argued that I made you happy I knew I didn’t.
My heart has gone cold again, and for me that means it’s time to build myself back up.
Isolation can be lonely, but it gives you time to focus on what you truly want & need.
Please don’t think of me in a negative light, focus on the good and I’ll do the same.
Maybe someday the time will...
Take a minute darling.
You're not alone.
You've never been.
These battles you've been fighting,
The scars they've left,
They make you human.
You might be a mess
But oh my, you're delightful,
The storms in your eyes,
and the silence in your voice,
You're an adventure I'd go on,
Again and again and again
Don't let fear get in your way! Sometimes you just have to step on that fear and do what you think (not what you feel!) it's right.
As I was walking down a road today, it was full of jam packed traffic, it was really hot and humid. I was listening to some music but I couldn’t focus on it due to the noise around me. My crowded city full of vehicles and humidity didn’t let me focus on the song I was listening to. And then all of a sudden I noticed , a butterfly flying over, away from me and instantly my mind was diverted as the clouds gave sun a cover and me a shade. Gradually, everything around me changed. I kept looking at the butterfly as it was flying away from me. Unexpectedly, I could hear my music again and it gave me a new meaning. Those thirty seconds made me realise that we can always find peace in everything. We ...
