My Daily Thoughts


Letting go of control

Control can be disguised as many things. Is the desire to be in control just as bad as being controlled. Are both a form of prison. One of self the other of others.
I am in deep thought over this question. As I reflect on the emotions I get when I feel controlled versus when I feel the need to be in control.  Can I honestly distinguish between the two. 
Am I trapped in a false sense of security.  Is it merely a power struggle. Are there winers or losers in this game ? Am I weak if I loose control or am I strong if I resist it. 
As I ponder this thought I feel the freedom that comes with letting go, the understanding that whenever I seek to control I loose, and whenever I decide to let go, I gain.  


Loneliness can have significant impacts on both our mental and physical well-being. Some of the effects of loneliness include:

1. Mental Health: Loneliness is often associated with an increased risk of mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. It can also contribute to feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and social isolation.

2. Physical Health: Studies have shown that loneliness can have negative effects on physical health. It is linked to increased stress levels, weakened immune system, higher blood pressure, and an increased risk of developing conditions like cardiovascular disease.

3. Cognitive Decline: Prolonged loneliness has been associated with cognitive decline and an increased risk of developing conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. 4. Social Skills and Relationships: Loneliness can perpetuate a cycle of isolation, making it harder for individuals to form and maintain meaningful relationships. It can also lead to difficulties in social interactions and a decreased ability to empathize with others.

5. Sleep Problems: Loneliness can disrupt sleep patterns, leading to difficulties falling asleep, staying asleep, or experiencing restful sleep. Sleep deprivation can further exacerbate feelings of loneliness and negatively impact overall well-being.

It’s important to note that the impacts of loneliness can vary from person to person and depend on various factors such as the duration and intensity of loneliness, social support networks, and individual resilience. If you or someone you know is experiencing loneliness, seeking support from friends, family, or mental health professionals can be beneficial.

Who Am I

Who are you created to be ?

What is it with all the labels. 
Do you label me to contain me or define me 
Why define me with labels that keep me imprisoned. 
Should I be defined by the label imposed on me.  
Curtain my not I object 
I am not defined by my past or my absolutes. 
I am defined by who I am created to be and

I am created to be

The future.



Am I beautiful ?

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

If the beholder is the observer,

Should I trust the words of the beholder

I guess the question is, 

Who is the beholder

I like to think I get the choice to decide for myself who beholds my beauty 

But above all things if I can’t see the beauty in myself how can I expect another to see it. 

So yes I will boldly declare I am beautifully and wonderfully made  


How can I remove fear from my mind 

Fear an emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain or harm.

Danger the risk that a person or thing that may cause pain.

Am I in pain? 

Pain a highly unpleasant physical sensation caused by illness or injury.

Am I injured or ill? 

Harm is physical injury

Am I harmed ? 

So what am I afraid of ? 

If it hasn’t happened I tell my self it’s not real 

if it’s not real what am I afraid of? 

Its a constant repeat 

So how do I combat this dissolution ? 


Courage is the quality I have that enables me to face my fears. 

 I am realising I don’t remove fear by running away from it. 

I combat  fear by moving towards it  and realising it was just a bad dream.


When Jealousy Creeps in

Why me !

Is it fair that I’m here. 

I try to remember the positives but all I recall is disappointment. 

Do I have to pretend to be happy for them. The promotion, the family, the life. It’s all a bit too much. 

How do I change my thoughts.

Grab a mirror I hear, stare;  stare harder eyes wide open and smile. 

There’s a thousand thoughts in a smile.

I feel a sudden release of gratitude. 

As I smile I realise how blessed I am,

As my smile turns into I laugh I am transformed from anger into contentment.

Then I know I am moving in a positive direction and ready to continue my day. 


The Disruptive Consequences of Greed

Am I greedy or do I just want more 

The dictionary defines greed as the intense and selfish desire for something. 
Is it wrong to go after after something with a passion?

Am I greedy because I struggle to involve others in achieving my goals.

When I say I’m contempt am I being lazy or have I simply given up. 

Is there any validation in having too much of a thing if I have the  capacity to carry it ?
Is there a point when drive turns into greed. 

I hear the words slow down, take a deep breath, evaluate and then continue. These four steps keep me in check, they help me to slow down the intensity of my desires so I can reflect, check my motive, enjoy what I already have because if  desire becomes greed, it’s only a matter of time before it all comes crashing down
