Poem of the week

Good Bones
BY MAGGIE SMITH

Life is short, though I keep this from my children.
Life is short, and I’ve shortened mine
in a thousand delicious, ill-advised ways,
a thousand deliciously ill-advised ways
I’ll keep from my children. The world is at least
fifty percent terrible, and that’s a conservative
estimate, though I keep this from my children.
For every bird there is a stone thrown at a bird.
For every loved child, a child broken, bagged,
sunk in a lake. Life is short and the world
is at least half terrible, and for every kind
stranger, there is one who would break you,
though I keep this from my children. I am trying
to sell them the world. Any decent realtor,
walking you through a real shithole, chirps on
about good bones: This place could be beautiful,
right? You could make this place beautiful.

Quote of the week

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more than fear”

Ambrose Redmond

Being courageous everyday doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be afraid or you can’t be scared. It just means that you choose to fight for yourself, you choose yourself. I think it means you choose to be better, to do better than the previous day.

Blurry skies

My name’s blurry face and I care what you think
My name’s blurry face and I care what you think

Wish we could turn back time
To the good old days
When our momma sang us to sleep
But now we’re stressed out

Sorry I couldn’t resist that song with today’s title. It’s called “stressed out” by Twenty one pilots

Anyways, let me know what you think about today’s poem

“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”

Theodore Roosevelt

Happy new week people! It’s another Monday and all I’ve got to say is that you should keep moving forward. Keep doing what you can, don’t give up, don’t look for excuses, “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”

That keeps you on a progressive track and the little steps you make today do count so do all you can and live a life without regrets. Be happy. Cheers to the week ahead

What thing is love?

Happy Valentines day people!! The whole celebration of love idea made me remember the poem “What thing is love? By George Peele”.

Do watch the video and leave your comments!!

What thing is love? By George Peele

What thing is love? for sure love is a thing.
It is a prick, it is a sting,
It is a pretty, pretty thing;
It is a fire, it is a coal,
Whose flame creeps in at every hole;

And as my wit doth best devise,
Love’s dwelling is in ladies’ eyes,
From whence do glance love’s piercing darts,
That make such holes into our hearts;
And all the world herein accord,
Love is a great and mighty lord;
And when he list to mount so high,
With Venus he in heaven doth lie,
And evermore hath been a god,
Since Mars and she played even and odd

Quote of the week. #mondaymotivation

“People with goals succeed because they know where they’re going.”

– Earl Nightingale

What does that tell you?

One word: FOCUS

Focus on yourself, your dreams, your goals. If you do, each day your aim would be achieving them and your actions would be to work towards that. Simply saying, if you know what you want, and where you want to be, you probably won’t get lost and even if you do, you would find your way back to the right path.

Set SMART goals and work towards achieving them.

The week is yours, own it.
