‘I’ve heard there are troubles…’

‘I’ve heard there are troubles of more than one kind, some come from ahead and some come from behind.

But I’ve bought a big bat, I’m all ready you see.  Now my troubles are going to have trouble with me!’

Dr Seuss



Go Placidly Amongst The Noise And Haste…

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there  may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.  Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to  the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and  aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy  your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career,  however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of  time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of  trickery.  But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many  persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.

Especially do not feign affection.  Neither be cynical about  love, for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as  perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things  of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.   But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.  Many fears are born of  fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

You are a  child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a  right to be here.  And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the  universe is unfolding as it should.  Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be.

And  whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful  world.  Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Max Ehrmann, Desiderata

Happy Tuesday ! xx

I don’t want flowers. I need you.

Beautiful 🙂 Reminds me of a song: ‘Sometimes all I need is the air that I breath, and to love you’ x


I don’t want flowers. I need you.

(We forget what we really  need. Need passion and desire to keep love alive.)

A beautiful woman is waiting for me.

I promise her dancing and presents.

I arrive home with flowers and candy.

Her eyes goes soft.

She whispered “Please don’t buy me flowers.
I don’t want diamonds or gold.
I just want you to need me.
For you to yearn for my kiss.
To be overwhelm with desire for my touch.
Take me to paradise of passion.
I want you to cry out my name.
I want you to rub lotion on my feet, legs and body.
Treat me like we are new in love.”

“I don’t want pretty flowers.
I need your desire for my kiss.
I want you rushing home to fall into my arms.
I want you for Valentine’s day.”

I smile and bring my lady near.

Kiss her sweet…

Eyes on the Prize, Guys.. Eyes on the Prize!

It is now the 1st August and my 29th birthday at the end of the month.   About two years ago I gave myself untill I was 30 to get myself out of the black hole and get myself a good job for the long term, pass my driving test and get out of dodge..


I have moved out of dodge and in the process found my lovely man person- Tick!
So far: I officially start my Bookkeeping course today, I am three months into my Customer Service NVQ, I have all my paintings so far accepted onto my online gallery, my lover is steaming away within his job, my sister is doing fantastically well with hers’ while looking after two spirited little ones and my other sister (after a good grand and a half, mind!) has passed her driving test just the second time!  -Thats A Tick!

The reason behind my ‘gushing’, (I am very excitable, you realise 😉 ) is after 9 months of nothing, I have two job opportunities offered today!!

So I am here to spread some of my positive energy to the masses and encorage all of those who feel stuck and discoraged to keep your eyes on the prize and even if it is little, you will accomplish and move forward.. every little accomplishment is a giant step to where you want to be and there are people alongside you giving you a friendly push 😉 xx






Happy Hump Day, Everybody!! 😀
