People That Make a Difference

By Coach Phatty, published on Mar 17, 2014

Throughout our lives, we can probably all remember a person or a few people, who have influenced our life in a certain way. Whether they touched our life in a positive or negative fashion, these people will never be forgotten.

In today’s world we have a tendency to focus on the THINGS that are happening in the world around us: news, work, local or world events, etc. and we forget to remember the good things in life.

I recently found this interesting little quiz on indianchild.com that I think many of you will find very interesting and inspiring.

So, without further... (more)

How Are You?

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Mar 11, 2014

...respond to those close to you when you are troubled or in pain. Do you open up and give honest answers, or do you close down and brush them off with an “I’m fine” response?

If you want to strengthen your relationships, become a better communicator and bring those significant others in your life closer to you, be honest the next time they ask you how you’re doing. With that said, let me ask you: How are you today? Go find someone you trust and tell then how you really feel, it's good for your soul.

***** please watch the video...her performance is amazing.

For All I Know

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Mar 6, 2014

What is this secret blowing in the wind tonight?

Gently cutting it's unique course

On what plain will it alight?

Perhaps within my heart....

What is that dark shadow dancing on the horizon tonight?

Tracking. sliding, sleuthing, tumbling

Where will it find composure ?

Perhaps inside my essence....

What dream is this transposed?

Freely masquerading in pretense

Where will it land?

Perhaps inside my soul....

The universe trembles in a loud sigh

The lovers finding their emancipation

The child whimpers... (more)

Starvation Raises The Siren

By Uttam Gill, published on Feb 22, 2014

The rituals of love confines to vows Falling on to the days we consigned Time fills with time so as the hearts Starvation raises the siren The fallen hopes script the obituary I retain the solemn pledges to relive To rise from the ashes to standby Starvation raises the siren Tonight I am broken so will cry The night in its fold holds me The comfort of the dark haunts me Starvation raises the siren The stormy dreams took her away I beg the storm to calm down I woke up and yell “Where you are” Starvation raises the siren By-Uttam Singh Gill

What Do You Like About Yourself ?

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Feb 14, 2014

...and our weaknesses that we overlook everything that is precious and beautiful about ourselves.

So, I thought I'd ask the question:

What do you like about yourself?

It may be things about your body, your spirit, your actions, your ideals....

The biggest struggle in life is the struggle to know, embrace, and accept ourselves, with all of our faults and imperfections.

When we have the courage to let the walls down - to know and embrace ourselves, despite our human failings, we also open the door to connecting in a more caring, empathic, intimate way with ... (more)

Letting My Secret Out

By LifeCherries, published on Jan 11, 2014

...I just cannot write.

The fact is that I have been going through a few personal issues and because I have not been able to speak about these publicly, I have not been able to write anything. Anything I do write about just seems trivial.

We all have to make certain decisions in life which are life changing. And I have recently had to make some of these life changing decisions.

I suppose a few decisions fall into this category such as:

Deciding what you want to become in life

This involves having to sit down and think about what you want to spend the rest of... (more)

History By Design

By DKIdea, published on Dec 21, 2013

...has changed! Now, Elvis neversaid that according to nearly every source on the internet. It was a myth, an event that showed up in print, but proved as false soon after. What?? Wait...really, what??

This is, without a doubt, one of the most profound things that has ever happened in my life. Again, I’m having trouble processing, but my late mother isn’t around to offer any guidance or voice an opinion. Therein lies the problem...without historical evidence (the footage) or a majority of people still around that witnessed the event, history is being designed...not... (more)

Yes...You Hold The Distinction

By Uttam Gill, published on Dec 12, 2013

...we try to exist as saint. As the one; the most enlightened….As the one, who is just an ordinary human being but trying to play with the cosmetic tools of high moral ground…traditions, customs…and what not…The macabre display of the audacity is so visible in every part of our day to day life… Amazing are the rules of the game here of this world. With the arrogance of self proclamation, people try to write-off genuine concern. Who the hell are those who talk so loudly about humanity under the draconian practices and belief? It sucks me to see the outrageous hypocrisy over the... (more)

This Game Of Life

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Dec 2, 2013

This world is too foreign to me

Often my heart is breaking

Not knowing how to see

Children hungry for

Love, food, kindness

NEEDING TO KNOW WHY...

I can't watch others cry and moan

Without it pulling at my heartstrings

I breathe their pain into me

Hoping to somehow

Lessen their affliction

I ASK AGAIN WHY...

Experience has never taught me

To walk away from those who

Need a comforting word, hug

Acknowledgment of their despondency

A simple gesture of compassion

WHY CAN... (more)
