5. Display Belinda’s lovely “Butterfly Light Award” badge on your blog.

How I’m a Positive Influence

Hmmm, it does make one reflect a bit. I believe that I convey my positive influence in my writing. I tend to write about the little ‘goodness’ in Life that we sometimes take for granted or take too ‘little’ time to acknowledge as we should. I know that Life is not all roses, naturally, some roses have thorns on their stems, but it still does not and should not hinder us from appreciating the beauty of its hue or the gentle breath of its scent. I use this analogy to impart the picture that is Life – a little beauty and a little prick – but all in all, a learning experience to share. And so, I continue, in whatever way I can, to remind us all of Life’s beauty and pain, which ultimately makes us more experienced and able to help others, because we, too,have passed that way.


Here a few bloggers whose journey I thoroughly enjoy from time to time…give them a look-see and be blessed and/or inspired:

There are surely more, however, we will start with a few to eradicate the feeling of overwhelm. Happy visiting!

My personal quote:

“Rome was not built in a day, but it was certainly started on one!”

Have a great and remember, the longest mile starts with only one step.

Light and love.

The Tree

Have you ever looked outside your window

And have your eyes set sight

On the imposing awareness

Of that one

Green mass of beckoning arms

Masquerading as branches

Which come together to create

That resilient and attractive

Tree that sits out yonder

Day after day

Reminding you

That it Rooting for you

Each time your eyes

Become fixed in Awe

At its Beauty…and

Its change of colors

As the seasons do their dance…


That Tree.

Just because…

I write these lines…

Just because I need expression.

I canvas my feelings in black and white…

Just because I need a visual of confirmation.

I need to check and reassess the emotions within…

Just because this is one way

For me

To reason with myself…

And to find the answers which lie within,

Just because…

I can.

I feel like a heavy load has found 

Another place

Except my shoulders

To weigh on.

I feel like the mist of

Cloudy illusions

Has finally cleared under the

Warmth of the midday sun.

I feel as if I have

Been given the luxury

Of fresh breath

As I breathe that

Sigh of relief…

That breath of…

Finally, it is done…

I am satisfied

With the progress I have made…

We are beings of love

And light.

Fearless are we

When we walk in the dawn of a new day, yet

Fearful are we

When we tread the evenings of dark skies, yet

We are beings of light

And love

If only we believe that we are…

And walk this earth with fearless hearts.

When do we get to say

I know it all

And attribute that knowing to

The all encompassing word

Called wisdom?

Who determines the extent 

Of that knowing?

A word to the wise is sufficient.

The Wind

I see nothing with my physical eyes

And yet I know

Something is there

Because I feel the gentle whisper 

As it brushes through the tiny hairs on my arms

And rustles through the density of the hair on my head;

It cools me off

At those moments when the generosity of the sun

Causes my body to turn on its natural faucet of water oozing

From my skin;

I see nothing

And yet,

I know its there…

The wind.

Today I heard something that did not

exactly nurture the need in my spirit

and yet

I accepted it because

there will be times


life will answer our thoughts

with replies that do not seem ‘right’

at that moment in time;


if we wait and allow things to flow

we will see the connection…

and the timing

which we could not as yet



because of Divine Intervention

it was right.



what we may consider ‘disappointment’ now,

is only ‘divine-appointment’ later.

I feel joy within

without any outward reason to feel it.

I feel peace within

without any motive to be calm going through the rough waters of emotions.

I feel music within

and dance with the melody without the sound echoing loudly.

I feel so many emotions within

that are not always a product of something without…but
