No mascara to my life

I have reached that stage in life where  I can’t apply mascara to life to create a facade.

That stage in life where the pursuit of my inner peace cannot be dampened by stereo type perceptions of what a certain cliché think of what they perceive to be my characteristics.

I have reached a stage in life where those throwing mud for the sake of throwing will not get my attention and I will not stop to ask why they are dirtying their hands.

My pursuit is happiness, peace and love.

I want to live life to the level where upon my expiry I can calmly waltz to the reception desk at Pearl Gate and give St Peter a high five before asking him to check my name in the roll call.

No mascara, no facade but peace, love and happiness. And the last time I checked that wasn’t a crime.

Inner peace

Good morning all. Thank you for keeping touch with the blog. Of late I have been pondering on the things people say and why and how they say them.

This is on the background of having been a recipient of very strong hurtful words which cut deep to the soul’s bone ( if the soul has a bone! !).

From that I learnt a few things.

1. It is true that none one can hurt you unless you give them the permission to do so.

2. It is true that bitterness is like drinking a cup of cyanide and expecting the other party to die.

3. It is true that at times words that hurt when  spoken to us reflect the speaker’s hurting past or current condition.

4. It is true that seeking peace, that inner peace,  even in the worst period of turmoil will leave you the better person.

From the above I learnt to choose to be the better person. It might hurt not to shout back or insult back or revenge the humiliation but you walk away with the honour of being the better person.

I choose, with great deliberation, to seek inner peace when all hell breaks loose. After all the Bible says.

The name of the Lord is a strong tower.  Those who run unto it are safe.  Proverbs 18:10.

Be blessed.
