Morning Post – All about giving

It is a wet Wednesday on my rock and I once again have some thoughts to share. Your greatness is not in what you have, but in what you give. What do we give of ourselves to others? Are you a money, gift or physical giver or are you someone who gives of your time, […]

Morning Thoughts – Alone time, yay or nay?

Good morning everyone!! It’s a cold blustery island morning. Strong winds and rain showers with the sun creeping out for a few seconds every now and then. All in all a real ‘winters’ morning. As far as winter goes when one lives on a rock in the middle of the ocean that is. The kind […]

Morning Thoughts – What image do I portray?

This morning I heard that someone I only met briefly online on one of my blogging platforms had passed away last night.

Morning Thoughts – Look beyond

Good morning everyone! A bit late this morning as this blonde had been distracted so many times already with too many things to do at once. đŸ˜‚ This morning I want to say. Look beyond your very often self perceived ‘limitations’. We often think we cannot do things because we’re not; Good enough Clever enough […]

Ramblings About Life

Battered and Bruised

Battered and Bruised  Beaten blue The one you trust Is the one handing out the hurt Battered and bruised Cowering Fearful Quiet Too scared to talk To scared to leave Who is going to believe The stories you have to tell A punch bag A target For rage Untemmed Nowhere to go Nowhere to hide […]

Morning Thoughts – Regrets

‘To regret or not to regret, that’s the question.’ Having regrets in life is inevitable. It’s part and parcel of life. You’ll always regret something. You’ll regret ; Not working hard enough at school or university Not taking the job Not traveling when you had the chance Not having the coffee when you had time […]
