The Flip Side

Be aware that patience is not the art of waiting - its the metaphysics of knowing that resting calmly will deliver - Guru Singh

Hello lovely people

It's been a while, I know! I have missed connecting with you! I finally touched town in South Africa after 2 days of travel. I overnight-ed in New York City then spent over ten hours to Dubai and another ten to Johannesburg. I must admit, I was beat! As soon as I arrived there was a dinner to attend, the following morning the SABIC Conference commenced with the formalities. I am so grateful to everyone that made it possible for me to be here!
I was schedules to speak on Rural Development, Women and Youth however, on the spot I  was asked to join another panel to speak on Entrepreneurial Eco Systems - I was so nervous. The host had to say "Don't Be Nervous" it turned out well in the end. I also did my scheduled talk the following evening.
I enjoyed it, I know that this is where I feel happy and of service
Straight after th…

Catch you on the Flip Side

It’s ok to grow, stretch and become more. Just make sure as you get bigger you are expanding from a pure place, as your true self. Otherwise you simply become a much bigger, more exaggerated version of who you are not. Maryam Hasnaa

I am off to South Africa today, this has been a real test of faith, patience and support. I am scheduled to speak at the SABIC Entrepreneur's Conference at the Emperor's Palace in Johannesburg,sort out a book talk and then fingers and toes crossed, hop over to Malawi to check out a women's project.
I went to check in this morning and I was told that my ticket was void. I called the organisers and they did not understand what happened. There was a mix up. By the time I was booked on the flight there were reroutes and delays which extended my trip by an entire day! I am reminded that despite the challenges I am on my way, I am reminded to learn from the experiences
The statement that pushed me there was on Saturday when a virtual perfect strang…

Don't Let No Doubt Fool You

Push.
When your mind says, "No!" you say, "Yes." (No, you can't think positively about that plane delay? Yes—two hours to yourself!—yes, you can.) 



It is very easy for our thoughts to run away with us, it is very easy to become so focused and overwhelmed by thoughts that it takes us over. We focus on the negatives, in what we don't want, in what we fear.

If we listen to our language we can realize how much we talk about what we don't want and don't have
What e fear and what we don't like
Where is the talk about the possibility?
Where is the talk about using what we have?
Where is the talk about what we want?

I have learnt that the Universe produces exactly what we focus on. Focus on the now, the yes, the possibilities and see what happens!

Don't let doubt and fear fool you
Peace

Stay in Your Business

If you are living your life and I am mentally living your life, who is here living mine? We’re both over there. Being mentally in your business keeps me from being present in my own. I am separate from myself, wondering why my life doesn’t work.To think that I know what’s best for anyone else is to be out of my business. Even in the name of love, it is pure arrogance, and the result is tension, anxiety, and fear. Do I know what’s right for me? That is my only business. Let me work with that before I try to solve your problems for you. If you understand the three kinds of business enough to stay in your own business, it could free your life in a way that you can’t even imagine. Byron Katie



Staying out of other people's business can be a challenge especially when you either care about them, believe that what they are doing is wrong or bad, or think you have the answer to their dilemma We want people who we care about to thrive, to live well, to be happy.
However we have to ask ourse…

Testimony

Love wishes to be known, completely understood and shared. It has no secrets; nothing that it would keep apart and hide. It walks in sunlight, open-eyed and calm, in smiling welcome and in sincerity so simple and so obvious it cannot be misunderstood. ACIM

Yesterday's event at The Arts Cafe TT was lovely, the spirit of kinship, the support of my friends and family, an absolutely full house! Give thanks
I want to share a testimony from the evening...Happy Reading

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending a Wellness Wednesday event featuring @akosuadedwards at @theartscafett. Let me start by saying that the universe works in mysterious ways. I catered an event earlier this year for which the feature speaker was Ms. Akosua Edwards. At the time I was hiding from accepting the huge changes that occurred in my life and so, it wasn’t my time to meet Akosua. Other than catering the event, I had no idea who she was. Six months passed during which I had a complete breakdown. Yet someh…

Returning Stronger

The way in which we do this is becoming aware of our current choices, what choices feel good in our body and what do not. This takes a level of honesty and non-judgement that is non-negotiable within this process. Looking at our less than favourable habits, thoughts, and emotions will almost always bring up discomfort, and force us to take a look at where we’ve been hiding from or lying to ourselves, but let me tell you from personal experience  That moment of pause, without judgement, is a game changer.Lee Ann Rimes

Today I have  and am grateful the opportunity to speak at an event called Wellness Wednesday's at the The Arts Cafe TT.
The owner's vision is to share empowering stories to women in particular on how to be well, on how to keep well. She believes that loving one's self plays a significant role in remaining well. I applaud her vision and also share in the view. The conditions of my speaking today is not perfect and I was tempted to say no -  I have very few books…

We need never fear to look within

We need never fear to look within. ACIM


I have learnt that ignoring either my intuition or a situation that must be dealt with which requires me tapping within my inner self spells trouble.
Intuition does not shout, it does not force, intuition is peaceful and many time illogical by the world's standards.  Wanting to prove others wrong, or prove you are right, having the last word and the "I told you so's is not intuition speaking to you, that is plain ole ego tripping. Many of us say it is our gut speaking when in fact it is the ego screaming at you.

Looking within can be scary, because looking within with honesty exposes us to things we don't want to deal with, things we have denied and things we have ignored. 

It makes us anxious that once we face them, call them out, look them directly in the eye that we have to take responsibility and do something about them. 

I have learnt that doing something about it right away is not always necessary or even a requirement in movin…
