Success

SUccessful

Success is only a milestone. It’s an indicator a goal is accomplished. So, always remain teachable and open to learn because LIFE is a journey of endless possibilities. When you think you have arrived, then, you’ve limited your possibilities of accomplishing more.

Moments of Solitude

Solitary

In my moments of solitude

when all voices are silent,

it’s you I hear the loudest.

It’s your voice which leads me.

In my moments of solitude,

it is a place from you

I am not tempted to waver.

In your presence,

I am not inadequate, I am enough.

In the moments of solitude,

when all distractions cease,

we are one.

In the moments of solitude,

I am at peace.

I seek your face,

from you I will not depart.

A repost of my original entry

A Casual Kind of Day

Casual

Arelax

A casual kind of day is one unpretentious-

nothing more and nothing less.

No frills, no gimmicks, only spontaneity, and relaxation.

A casual kind of day is one without expectations-

just living in the moment and losing inhibitions.

No drama, no frustrations, only peace, and calm.

A casual kind of day, we should have more of them,

because on those days, we get to be ourselves.

A casual kind of day, we can have them everyday.

Life is a Symphony

Symphony

CharlotteSymphony_575

Life is a harmonious dance between good and evil.

Often in tune, but too often out of sync with humanity.

Its different elements are rearranged,

and they are manipulated away from their original harmony.

A maestro can not perfectly compose a symphony of life.

It takes a divine intervention.
