As we age…

As we age...

As we age, we change... Photography. Philip Abang. Create Space

I was reading the post Monday’s Memory Lane… 3.Scatter the previous week and was drawn to these inspiring words;

“As we age, we change how we think, how we feel and how we behave. We drop old habits and seek out new. Enjoy scattering your thoughts…some go unseen and blow away on the breeze but some nourish the ground they fall on.” _Marie

Marie wrote these inspiring words on her website Create Space. I thought it was great and insightful about life, so I decided to place her quote on a photo I had taken above to convey a kind of meaning.

Marie is an amazing writer and has an exceptional skill in interpreting life, art, design, almost anything. I am a huge admirer of her works. I highly recommend visiting her website and follow her works. She is incredible.

You probably might be wondering where your big opportunity is.

It just might be at your door step, on the project you are working on at the moment, where you’re heading to at the minute or right where you’re sitting.

Meanwhile, talking about ‘big opportunity’, please allow me to wish all the wonderful women and especially those in my life a…

Happy International Women's Day. Philip Abang

…more power to you.

“Your life is like an egg. If an egg is broken by an outside force life ends, but if an egg is broken by the inside force, life begins.” Jim kwik

Great quote from one of my favourite speaker and Brain Coach.

I hope that my visual metaphor does it justice.

Have a brilliant day today.

He who has a why

He who has a why _Friedrich Nietzsche
“He who has a why to live can bear almost any how”. _Friedrich Nietzsche
“He who has a why to live can bear almost any how”. _Friedrich Nietzsche

The power of purpose, resilience, will power and optimism.

I will highly recommend a TED talk that blew me away one morning. I often wonder how people deal with grief, daunting circumstances, life’s unscripted manual. I failed miserably when dealing with grief, especially losing a young one so close to the heart some years back. I remember feeling like the ground should open its mouth and gulp down my entire being, living no hair strand behind. Sad that there isn’t a manual for grief. This is a topic for another day.

The talk was about Mark Pollock who was the first blind person to race the South Pole and human rights lawyer Simone George. Together they “explore the tension between acceptance and hope in times of grief. The compelling and unforgettable talk is mind-blowing. I heard the quote above from the talk.

It is worth watching this gripping talk  ‘A love letter to realism in a time of grief’ as they share the ordeals of life’s toughest challenge about grief and “groundbreaking work they’re undertaking to cure paralysis”.

Life is an ever-changing blend of sweet and sour

Life is an ever-changing blend of sweet and sour. _Dr Perry

Life.png

Life is an ever-changing blend of sweet and sour, sometimes it parallels the sweetness of honey and other times it can be as sour as a lemon. It is easy to become overwhelmed when we think of the frailty of life. Every day of our lives we have one foot stepping forward into the unknown while the other momentarily remains suspended in the past. Life is a flux of constant energy in motion. We grasp for it, only to momentarily hold onto it, as it slips away.

I wish I had the ability to suspend the forward motion of time. I would choose to live in certain moments of my life; only moving on when I was completely ready to do so. Sadly, life does not allow us to hit the pause or replay button. Every moment blooms and wilts replaced by countless others. We must treat our time with reverence and not waste it foolishly. Life should be lived consciously and not in a state of reverie.

MakeItUltra™ Psychology

I read Dr Perry’s Awaken The New Year 2019 and I was totally blown away by how he poetically summed up ‘life’. Being a lover of words and quotes, I reached out to Dr Perry to permit me to post these two paragraphs from his post. Being the gentleman that he is, he kindly accepted. I did what I usually do as a designer and that is to give a visual context using text and image to elicit the emotional connotation of what he was trying to convey.

I would highly recommend that you visit Dr Perry’s blog which is packed with words of wisdom and super knowledge on psychology and state of being.

Have a beautiful time.

Many Thanks.
