Small

Small

Little,insignificant

We were made to feel this way

Powerless

If our nature be our fault

For when we always go wrong

Controlled

No reputation

Minute object without jurisdiction

If things truly change

Could it come quicker

Will the tides ever shift?

Our names faded

The images paint blood in my soul

My insignificance remains

Maybe a bit dramatized

But the concept is true

Unrestrained may be my thoughts

To flow from whatever source

When the mind decided to shut up no more

With a unique style

Different

Un proud yet unashamed

Insignificantly great

Small remains only in the mind that lies to itself

Asante sana,my beloved

Bowl of lies

Let me deceive myself,please

For it is much easier this way

Once I enjoy my bowl of lies

Then I will move on again

If the cure to pain is delusion

Aren’t I allowed to have it?

Who am I to act strong?

When I face an impossible truth

They say when your life is falling apart

The end result might be pleasant

But for me,I am too scared to face this

Maybe one day I will look back and laugh

Thinking I was so wrongly afraid

But today,give me my bowl of lies

Since I need it to survive

Then let me have it,please!

Black

Black as coffee

Black as night

Brilliant like an ever star studded sky

It contains all the colours

Mysterious and elegant

The shine of nature

Pigment of the soil

Backbone of our blood

Unique like mother nature

Pure and unblemished

The earth’s glow

Unmutated,strong and bold

The universe is black

The milky way is black

The soul is black

A cure for loneliness

As the world advances,people increasingly fall into a pit of loneliness.Human contact has washed away to meaningless interactions.The social media world has inspired people to present a fake version of themselves. Loneliness happens when the true self has been ignored or hidden in the shadows for too long.The people pleasing masks worn creates a vacuum in our souls that longs to be filled.

The cure for loneliness is ourselves.It begins within.In order to be free from it,learning to love our real selves is necessary.Not the one forcefully presented on Instagram,or the fake one that we show family and friends.It is the hidden self which was long avoided.Being comfortable and at ease with ourselves is the cure for loneliness.Our fears and love which makes us real must be acknowledged in order to be free.It is a journey of self finding.

Meditation,soul searching and spiritual awakening is needed.We must ask-what makes us us?For ourselves we must see the composition of which our souls are formed.If we can be at peace with our real selves,we will not be lonely.We will be filled with light and love.Those that are truly meant for us will remain attracted to that light.

Happiness would become a familiar concept when you know yourself.

What to do when no one supports your dreams

It has happened to many of us.We have this marvellous idea we want to launch,this vision we want to share.But no one seems to be there to urge us on.Not everyone is lucky to have a legendary mother the likes of Ben Carson.The ones who trust,nutures,inspires and believes.Some of us just have to be our own biggest fans.This is not something which is bad,because being our own greatest support is the best thing ever.Or it should be.

However,humans crave validation. Validation,that word which holds both positive and negative connotations.It is rather easy to say that we do not need validation,but much more harder to abide by it.We do need validation.It is a trait innate to humans.The need for approval of accomplishment.But do we have to get it from a particular group of people to be fulfilled?No,we don’t have to.

Though we need validation,we are selective of who we appreciate receiving it from.A positive reinforcement might come from a stranger on the internet or a college who feels your ideas are great.Most times we do not value the praise that comes from people we give less value to.You might as well prefer the approval from your friends and family,but they might not give it.The issue is in being satisfied with what we can get at any given moment.

So what can be done when you feel that no one supports you?Keep on going!Your dreams are most important to you than anyone else.Why? Because a lot of people are also thinking about their own lives.I’m sure you do that as well.I for one do not go about worrying about everyone’s dream and ambition. Sometimes I even come across an awesome idea which I like,but I forget to express my opinion.Such person might never know that I approved of him/her.People show approval more when you have reached a peak of considerable success.

Every great person today had gone through the same process of feeling alone.When no one supports you,do not use that as an excuse to give up.Use that as a fuel to make progress.Your passion is good enough motivation to keep on going.The need to make yourself a better version you can be should be an inspiration.

Your dreams are for you and at all cost you should fight for them. This is possible without the help of anyone.You can draw courage and strength from many people and sources,but you should be your own hero.It makes you a stronger person whose vision is focused.The greatest support you can get is the one you give yourself.

Keep moving forward.

It’s not about willpower!

Willpower had become a cliche word for in which so many self help people proclaimed to be an ultimate problem solver.Its only recently that studies on willpower show how limited it is.The effectual reliance on the short supply of this proclaimed wonder tool has no basis in actual keeping up with a positive habit.

It turns out that by rewiring the pattern of your brain,the need to use willpower frequently is not neccesary.The constant loop mode the brain is always in to repeat pattern and habits is our enemy,especially when it comes to creating change.If only we learn how to break the pattern and stop the habit when we notice the loop in action.

So no,it’s not about willpower when you want to change your habits,action,thought processes and your mind.It’s about doing something sporadically,out of the blue even as when your mind tells you to follow the old ways you are used to.When you begin to do this,it becomes more easier to try new stuff.Willpower becomes less needed to go through the day.

Be spontaneous!

Distraction and how to maneuver its lure 

We switch on the tv and just want to watch it for a few minutes.Minutes grow into an hour,then more hours.At the end of that nice weekend,we begin to wonder all what we could have accomplished with our lives.And the cycle continues.Distraction-It’s something that robs us of our true intentions.It is the hindrance we create for ourselves.

Distraction leads to procrastination and the latter leads to unaccomplishment.This robs us of our joy as we feel our life is never complete.There is a thin line between being idle and being distracted.A need to maneuver this foe in our daily lives is neccesary,in order for productivity to abound in our lives.

How to bypass the lure of distraction

As we live and develop on this earth,we find more tools and skills to cope with the never ending challenges.This goes for whatever problems come our way,and this includes distraction.First,we must acknowledge our lives importance.No matter how mundane your life may seem,we are all significant in the grand scheme of things.

Though many might argue our collective insignificance in the universe,we must not forget how little drops of water makes a mighty ocean.By recognising the ability we possess and our importance,self evaluation becomes easy.Then can we realise the power we have to change our frame of mind and from there,our lives.

We should take note of what is most important in our lives.These are the things that give our lives meaning,flavour and colour.After identifying these things,we need to evaluate if enough attention and growth has been given to these areas.For example,if you like writing,ask yourself if you have given enough attention to this area.If you find sewing important to you,how much investment have you made in it with your time and effort?Baking?Have you raised your skill level recently?Do you like talking about being an entrepreneur,business and money?What are your accomplishments in these areas.If your answer is no,you need to ask yourself why that is.Then you need to figure out what has been taking up your time instead.In 99.9 percent of the times and scenarios,the culprit for our unproductivity is distraction.

The mind and eyes are easily attracted to shiny things.You will find that with proper research,what distracts us are enticing in apperance.It may be video games,too much sleep,social media,unnecessary drama,laziness and faux tiredness,wishing and imagination,chasing fun,etc.These are all distractions and they subtract from our lives instead of adding to it.If such distractions fills up our days,there is no way for us to build up skills in what truely interests us.We then get stuck in a trap box that we created by our own hands.A box of perpetual and repeating personal failures.A box of distractions.

Doing whatever possible to resist the shiny deceitful hour stealer will be an excellent start.It gets easier once we have started the process of saying “no” to all the negatives that fills our lives.Refusing to indulge in the things that keep us stuck,be it not eating clean,spending above your income,unproductivity,etc will break the pattern.The pattern needs to be broken for a daring side of us to surface.

We must act on what we positively desire for our lives. It doesn’t matter on what form of motivation you get or if you don’t believe in motivation at all,just do It !Positive and productive action is key.This step is left to us as soon as we realise our power and conclude that fear is an imagined threat.Besides,why should one be afraid of personal progress.It also boils down to realising how we self sabotage ourselves.Remember no one will come to our aid (usually)except ourselves!We own the life,therefore we must act in ways to enrich it.Maneuvering distraction is one of this ways.

Let’s be productive!

I am?

I am the dead fish of the flock

the carcass of dreams and aspirations 

Tom foolery of youth,pride and creed

If language could express the pains

Impossible carnage,lack of illustration

Illusion of poignant feelings,lost in meaning

Animation of my soul

The toil for nothing,tears for something

The cast on my heart,my mind in stitches

The world is a joke

I bow my mind in laughter

There is no meaning,no truth;no lies?

But void

To learn to seek,to seek to earn

All lies to bring hope to an empty future

A boring wasteland,a bastard grave for an empty coffin

The desert of no return

Infamous no mans land

The graveyard of blossoming ambitions 

The lack of energy for my lazy deeds

Pure,simple but not sort after

Beauty 

An untouchable depth

Flawfully flawlessly like the earth itself

Strength,with a bountiful touch of dignity 

Rare

The ambition that is seen in someone’s eyes

Care and dedication 

That pleasant smile

The love that glows in a lover’s eyes

Kindness with the exaltation of patience

A well polished soul

The glimmer of hope

Grace seen on a face

An unbreakable force

Remarkable
