J – Journey With Joy

Journey with joy. Remember it’s a journey, so one step at a time. Like every other journey, it may lead to more journeys or it may end at the culmination of the achievement of your goal. So relax, enjoy each process, each stage and get the best out of them. Lap up every step of your journey because you may not have any moments like that again.

Don’t postpone your joy and happiness to when you are one big celebrity with 3 million followers and lots of money. Whether 2 or 20 followers on paper or online, whether low profits margin or little funds raised; or whatever level you achieved in what you’re pursuing, celebrate it with joy, gratitude, bottles of wine and pat on your back. That achievement was deserved, and it’s truly a level accomplished.

It’s a journey, so give it time but don’t be idle; don’t be in a hurry and avoid hasty decisions. Every completed project that lasts a lifetime takes time. Neither the city of Rome nor the Eiffel Tower were built in a day. They took time and so does your dreams. Give it time, and keep doing something daily (See my notes on D- Draw and Do), in a few years, you would have achieved a lot. And you would certainly be glad you didn’t rush things.

“In the end, it is important to remember that we cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are.” –Max De Pree

I Dance, I Jiggle

img_1911

I dance with gaiety
I jiggle with gladness
My feet can’t keep still
My hands rise in thanks
My heart hums a sweet song
My mouth sings a new tune
My eyes light up with joyful sparkles
My body move with grateful adulation
It resonates in my heart
It intoxicates my spirit
When I consider
When I remember
Your beautiful words:

You are My beloved
You are My princess
You are My daughter
You are My heir
You are Mine
And
I have loved you with My everlasting love

Daily Prompt: Jiggle, Caper

Alone… I Find You

Alone in the secret place under the shadow of Your wings
I find peace beyond understanding
Alone in the boundless depths of Your everlasting grace
I find mercy beyond belief
Alone in Your presence as the morning sun breaks through
I find untold treasures of joy

I am beloved of You, You are jealous for me
I am redeemed by You, You freed me for You
I was saved by You, You are a blessing to me

Alone in Your presence with my heart focused on You
I find strength, faith and love
Alone but not lonely
Alone and not afraid
Alone but not forsaken
Alone, but not despised

Alone in Your presence with my spirit united in You
Cocooned by You
I find You

Which Room? What News?

Countless screams and joyful outbursts filled one room while cries of pain and sadness filled another.

Shivering with anticipation and endlessly rubbing sweaty hands, tapping restless feet on the wooden floor in a vain effort to manage tension, glancing eyes about yet barely seeing anything, thoughts incoherent and mind not at ease.

The suspense is intoxicating, the waiting game is emotionally draining… waiting to be called forth, to be directed to one of the two rooms.

Two unsettling questions to be answered by the sluggish slothful time- which room? What news?

Daily Prompt: Shiver

Playful

Playful
Such a jolly word!
A common attribute in children
Brings humour into friendships
And happiness into the heart
Everyone having a good laugh
Jokes, smiles, having so much fun
Leaves no room for grudges
Friends are made with ease
Tensions are sure released
Playful people are always likeable
Pessimists hardly make friends
Playful
Such a happy word.
