Motivation (Anonymous)

Don’t complicate life. We won’t be here forever. Once this day is over, it’s gone forever. Your time is too valuable to waste on nonsense.

No matter what knocks you down in life, get back up and keep going.
Never give up. Great blessings are a result of great perseverance.

Talking about our problems is our greatest addiction. Break the habit.
Talk about your joys.

Good things come to those who believe, better things come to those who are patient, and the best things come to those who don’t give up.

Do not pray for an easy life; pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.

Disappointments were not meant to destroy you. They were meant to strengthen you & give you fortitude to accomplish your God-given destiny.

We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but of appreciating what we do have.

Your child will follow your example, not your advice.

One day, you’ll be just a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

Associate yourself with people of good quality, for it is better to be alone than in bad company.

Don’t fear change. You may lose something good, but you may also gain something great.

When you love what you have, you have everything you need.

The greatest act of faith some days is to simply get up and face another day.

Never let the things you want make you forget the things you have. *GRATITUDE.

Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do, long after the mood you said it in has left you. *COMMITMENT

When you choose to forgive those who have hurt you, you take away their power.

Patience is not the ability to wait, but how you act while you’re waiting.

Isn’t it ironic:
– We ignore the ones that adore us
– Adore the ones who ignore us
– Love the ones who hurt us
– Hurt the ones that love us

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. Every story has an end, but in life every end is just a new beginning.

You were born to win, although to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, & expect to win.

Every day is a NEW beginning, take a deep breath and START AGAIN.

You are loved.
You are wonderfully made.
You are beautiful.
You have purpose.
You are a masterpiece.

Don’t compare your progress with that of others. We all need our own time to travel our own distance.

Surround yourself only with people who are going to lift you higher.

Bad things happen:
– Every day.
-To everyone.
The difference is in how people deal with it.

When you make a commitment, you build hope. When you keep it, you build trust.

Two things define you: Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.

Being honest may not get you a lot of FRIENDS but it’ll always get you the RIGHT ONES.

Shoutout to everyone trying to get their life together. Working on yourself is the hardest part of life. Keep going, no matter where you are.

Be selective in your battles. Sometimes peace is better than being right.

Keep people in your life who truly love you, motivate you, and make you happy. If you know people who do none of these things, let them go.

Be happy not because everything is good, but because you can see the good side of everything. *OPTIMISM

NO ➔ Shortcuts
NO ➔ Quick fixes
NO ➔ Blaming others
NO ➔ I’ll do tomorrows
NO ➔ EXCUSES!!

Surround yourself with positive people who will support you when it rains, not just when it shines.

Being defeated is often a temporary condition; giving up is what makes it permanent.
Enjoy God’s grace on this journey we call LIFE.*

GOOD PEOPLE. (By Carol Kariuki)

There are many good people in the world, yes, good people

People who get concerned

People who care

People who cry from hurt and painful despair

Overshadowed by malice and chaos

You’d wonder where they hide

Do they have a secret sanctuary

Where rule one is humanity

There are many good people in the world, yes, good people

People who don’t judge your ethnicity

People who don’t judge your sexuality,

A world without judgement,

wouldn’t that be a sight,

A world without fear of what fellow man can do

A world where I can borrow sugar a block away

There are many good people in the world, yes, good people

It doesn’t matter what man has done

If you cant find good people …be one.

MY FEAR. By Carol Kariuki.

Here’s a day in my sketchy black shoes,

Waking up, jogging down the street,

Typical girl, nice and sweet,

No one can see the build up inside,

I wont let you see, its my secret to hide,

My fear blazes deep within,

Forcing my senses to crash and break in,

Head held high, big smile, not going to waste it,

Motto is: Fake it till you make it,

What do they think about me??

Too tall,too fat, big face, big mistake,

Am I dressed okay, am I stylish enough??

Why does the world need me to be so tough??

Here come my Peers, “Oh! Great, another test.”

Say the right things and be at my best.

How are you Carol?? “Oh am okay.”

(I’d rather be in a t-shirt at home today)

Heart beat goes fast, breathing speeds up, feet go numb, I hope no one notices,

It will be okay, it will be okay, my mind promises,

Keep it together let no one see,

Don’t show, conceal, let it be,

The day is done, slightly fun,

My mind is clear, far from my fear

My one true wish (By Carol Kariuki)

While lying beneath the stars ,on a beautiful hill.

I saw a shooting star pass by that left me perplexed and still.

The tradition is to make a wish and have it granted,

The problem is I never quite know what I wanted,

I started searching the files stored deep in my mind,

So many thoughts clouded my eyes leaving me blind,

I wish that everyone in this world would know my name,

No wait! I wish my name was engraved in the hall of fame,

Actually, I wish I was the most inspiring writer,

My words would make the darkness seem much brighter,

The again, I do like to write an occasional song,

I know! I wish there was somewhere I belong,

I wish my mother was rewarded for all her good deeds,

She provided for all my needs,

I wish I knew what the world wants me to be,

I wish I knew the way to be free,

Hold on, maybe I should wish for what every girl dreams,

Prince charming is what every girl  wishes for it seems,

Alright, I wish Prince Charming would come whisk me away,

No, that didn’t feel right in any way,

Well I wish I knew how birth came about,

What an important event that leaves me dreading with doubt,

I wish everyone around me would be honest for a day,

Then again, the truth does hurt in its own manipulative way,

I know! I wish for peace in all the nations,

What world it would be, complete with discretion,

Is it me, or did that just not sound sincere?

I do wish for it but its not personal or dear,

I love how my mind thinks very fast,

Debating all this before the star had completely passed,

I was not going to let my wish go to waste,

Yes I had to make a wish of somewhat good taste ,

Some would wish for immortality,

I wonder if that will ever be reality,

With so many wishes… I couldn’t choose just one,

Its the easiest wish of all, as I came to learn,

In a flash, it came to me,

The perfect wish that would leave me be,

“I wish, oh how I wish..”,I had to frame the words perfectly,

Wasting my chance to wish would be a catastrophe,

I needed someone to show me how,

Someone to help with words somehow,

But no, I was the guest and the host,

Oh well here goes…

I wish I knew what I wish for the most. 🙂
