    The Race that is set …before you!

    Just recently the United Kingdom experienced one of the most spectacular events any nation could ever cherish, by being the host to the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.  Previously this year, we also celebrated the Queen’s Golden jubilee; Jamaica celebrated their 50th year of Independence from colonial rule, and not forgetting, 01 August was commemorated for the day of Emancipation from Slavery.

    Positive Emotions



    Maybe you had some unpleasant news this week maybe from your doctor or your bank?? What is that unpleasant news you heard lately?

    It is just not over until you say so…  you may have received a report from your doctor which is unfavourable.

    Honesty… the Best Policy

    ‘Honesty is the best policy, ever heard of…. ‘Speak the truth and speak it ever.  Cost it what it will…he who hides the wrong he did. Does the wrong thing still’..?


    Do you feel neglected?

    Do you feel neglected? Don’t give in to neglect or lonesomeness, these symptoms are far from a crime, they are part of any human feelings sometime or another. Each person goes through one thing or the other but deals with them in different ways.

    Woman…of Substance

    Women you are of substance, you are of great value… a woman is a motivator, mothers, counsellors; she is the centre piece of any jewel.  Hi men, whilst we adore and respect you, you must admit that without women as part of the essential ingredient, the cake would be just tasteless.

    Values So Dear

    Values will play a very important role in guiding us through what will be a period of challenging times. One will have to take time to identify and implement the necessary changes in the way we go about doing things. Sometimes we ignore the little things that seem so insignificant and so small to us and in our society today like, regarding respect. This has been a major concern for me, as I see the lack of these values staring in the face of society these last days.

    The Little Things…

    Do you remember the days when basic moral principles of ‘thank you…s and excuse and how are you, the hello…s use to be the order of the day… (Old fashion habits?)’. Do we still teach our young ones for example; when they are crossing over to sit next to somebody, that the right thing to do is to say excuse me (sometimes you may even witness folks just cross over another person with everything they have got is all in the next persons face). Back in the days both youngsters and seniors alike use to be so courteous and kind and respectful.

    The Banana Story

    I heard of a story (I was told it is true, whether it is so or not I just love the moral of it) …of a man who got so fed up with life and its problems; one day he didn’t have much left but ‘one ripe banana.’ He decided he didn’t want to go on anymore with life, so he decided to climb up a tree and eat his banana then take his life. Unaware to him another man came and sat under the tree with a similar situation, both unaware of each other’s presence.

    Today the sun is shining..but..

    “Today the sun is shining but I am not enjoying it, I feel as though I am not enjoying life any at all.  The things I dreamt of having seems all shattered, I feel a sense of hopelessness. I can’t’ even pay my bills; I don’t do the little things that mattered to me most anymore. I would like to live life to the full, to be just happy and care free; ” but it is not like that anymore you say”…

    What is your struggle today?

    There are so many of us with something of some sorts. One thing is evident; we all have the concerns in our struggle. When will it all ends?
