Gratitude as an attitude all the way


Muse with MAG: Do you have an attitude of gratitude? (16.1.2020)

I DO! From as early as I can remember I have preferred being grateful than grumpy. And I came to to spend the night with my soul sister at the hospital, she was admitted for head hammers ( don’t know how else to quality such headaches which land you in hospital. Three days prior I visited her at her cozy home and we even sat on her bed gisting before moving on to her comfy sitting room to watch some TV show she likes. Last night, she was having a drip and a difficult time sleeping, while I was on her bedside and had my sports mat to lie on intermittently. This morning, I looked at that mat and said ‘am grateful I have you, and wouldn’t ever worry about the thickness of my mattress at home again’ and added lol to that. Well, I really mean in every circumstances we can find reason to be grateful an not grumpy. I am tired and need some sleep and if possible a massage, but am so grateful I could come spend the night with my darling before her family comes in this morning. Friends aren’t only to go hang out or spend money on/for each other. It had been years I spent such a night in a hospital with the lights on all night o hahahaha. To each their own appreciation of life o, just my musings. Have a Terrific Thursday world and may God bless us all AMEN.

My Path


I was seriously walking on my path on day 6 of my purification journey, when Aime my love surprised me with the above snaps as she came back from seeing her son off to school. I had been thinking of the words to a poem titled My Path, and so think these fotos make a good match lol

My Path

I dabbled and dabbled to Stand

Then started of

Crawling and Crawling

Before Walking and Walking

trying finding and finding

my own path

and not the path

traced for me by anyone but God

and when I started seeing and seeing

not with my eyes but with my soul

I saw a path different from theirs

whose vision near blurred my sight

what a head and heartache to have

trying to stay focused

and not ruin any chances

explaining without expecting

why a rugged not a tarred path

because that’s just the way of life

I am forever grateful and graceful

for all the awesome angels

I have met on my path

Insomnia I’ll wait you out


I am so happy to receive this today of all days

Dear Insomnia

You may seem to record a small victory today

Am up since 10:53 having slept dutifuly by 9.15 pm

I don’t know for how long we’ll stay awake today

Yesterday we admired each other for 3 hours 

Then I got a 5th hour of sleep

I near blew my trumpet then

Not knowing you were taking note

Changing strategy and re-strategizing

Increasing the AC temp until I can’t

I have to decamp to a lonely corner

Nah you wouldn’t let me be

Repeat of August 2014

When my darling Gaby went on

This time I know better

I wouldn’t only spy on you like a hawk

I will wait you out with camomile

First thing tomorrow morning 

I get myself that and more

You aint having any final word

See what I got from Diane in the picture?

But ugly and mean you

With nothing to offer but mind muggles

Plus body bashing head, eyes, back

I give you three more days

To try your best and leave

Because dear Insomnia

I am ready to wait you out

Letting it Be


image

There comes in time in life where the choices gets narrowed down…

Letting it be now or later…

No more beating myself up over what I’ll wear in five days…

Just letting it be till I get there…

No more fretting over who to call or expect a call from: just letting things be…

Indeed am neither weary of, nor scared to love: am just letting love be. It’ll get here when it does…

And that applies to life as is: I fairly think I have and am still trying my best and it seems it mustn’t always be to the last letter. And so in the meantime, while I live in all gratitude, I am letting life be…

One moment at a time, no more pressure to tick them all off as planned. Life has showed me some twists and turns, I am learning the hard and even mild way, to love Letting it Be…
