wise word quotes
wise words - african proverbs
Imagine the tribal induna's, sipping yeast bear from a calabash and passing on their years of wisdom.
That's what African proverbs are - real wisdom, undocumented for years but finally and proudly remembered.
For many years, the true African cultural gems were passed on verbally from one generation to the next. Therefore, the wisdom of an old man, equals a library.
Let's do a quizz type Q & A:
- Who is your best friend?
- Is it the same friend you share all your dreams and fears with?
- How long do you know this friend?
- Do you see him/her every day?
- If not, how often do you connect?
- When you connect, do you just pick up from where you left off or are there any akward silences?
- Do you need to do all the talking?
- Can you imagine a life without your friend?
If you have a friend that means the world to you, you are blessed, rich and special.
The wise induna's (Zulu word for tribal head) reckoned "to be without a friend, is to be poor indeed".
wise words - self improvement
If you teach a child to read, they are almost equipped for life. It is so important.
If you are not a reader, challenge yourself to read a few words, lines, chapters per day. That way, soon you will be hooked.
life lessons about self care
Life is tough, and so are you.
But we all know, it is not always true.
The big secret to life is to enjoy it, to make it enjoyable for everyone around you and to take responsibility for your mistakes.
The Good Lord created us in the most detailed and interesting way. We are all the same and yet, so different.
If you were created to be a giver, give;
Are you a creative? Make;
An organizer? Get going without being too bossy (LOL);
Animal lover - right, fight for them.
Don't get caught up in too much of this and lose your purpose, just BE.
We have all been touched by the Covid pandemic.
Be it emotional, personal or financial and to be honest, it is really a thieve of so many things.
One thing that Covid steals, is your ability to breathe properly.
To honour each and every one affected by this pandemic, here is an image you can save or share...just breathe.
You are what you think, talk, do.
It can be dangerous to ponder on your own thinking for too long.
Therefore, DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU THINK!
In my career, I have heard so many sad stories, heart-breaking stories. Stories that made me thank God each and every time for the blessed life I have.
However, in all the brokeness, there is hope, purpose, happiness to be found. Nothing lasts forever, not even the bad and sad.
If you are broken, believe that you can be of purpose, or beautiful or appreciated, just like the clay pot in this image.
wise words - almost ouch!
These quotes are sometimes sharper than a knife. The one's that hit you so hard, you'll be pondering on the truth for days.
"The whole is greater than the sum of its parts" -Aristotle
Do you hate excuses or use it?
We are all guilty of using it to our own advantage and detriment. But, the truth is, "You can't deposit excuses".
Ouch, that really hurts, but it's so true.
