HOW TO LISTEN TO YOUR INNER VOICE IN A LOUD WORLD

“To experience peace does not mean that your life is always blissful. It means that you are capable of tapping into a blissful state of mind amidst the normal chaos of a hectic life.” ~Jill Bolte Taylor There’s something about a recession that puts a downer on most people’s moods. It’s hard to be cheerful in a country where nothing works. I have truly wanted to write in the past month but between house hunting,…

How i found peace by letting go of the past and the future

“I used to be afraid of the pain letting go of the past would cause, until I realized how much pain holding on has caused.” ~Steve Maraboli I realized that I’d been holding on to so many things from my past. Past dreams, past people, past places, past desires.

Go where the dream takes you..

Hi my name is Nwando and i’m a dreamer. I find that some events in my life are one big de ja vu. The last night in a familiar city before one relocates brings about mixed emotions that can never quite be explained in words.

For The Love Of The Night

  Inspiration comes at night time to me When all is quiet and I can hear myself Grateful for times like tonight It is at moments like these that I indulge in self reflection Life and its endless possibilities My fears and cowardice Things I will never be bold enough to say I play some music and close my eyes Get lost in the beats and the voice straining to sing what it feels Maybe…

They dream less and less of making a difference in the world and they dream more and more of how to make their significant other satisfied. Being in a relationship/marriage provides some sort of security; you know that all your problems are half shared and that brings major comfort.…

Do you believe in friendship with an ex?

It’s always sad when a relationship ends of course. You have to adjust to suddenly being alone but a major annoying part about losing a lover is also losing a friend in the process. Dating someone pretty much means sharing life with them; they grow to know your strengths, weaknesses, fears, dreams and pretty much the whole 9 yards. They become your go to when you’re happy/sad/confused/lost/elated; your own personal cheerleader; the person you allow…

I’m Unmarried NOT Diseased

I was having a conversation with a lady and she asks if i’m single or in a serious relationship and i say i’m single and she replies ‘Awwww don’t worry your time will come ok; hang in there’. I literally had a blank look, hang in where? I find that this happens often. Once people know i’m single/unmarried they turn sympathetic, act like i have an uncommon illness and then try to tell me to…
