Celebrating Truths!

In this post I am Celebrating Truths! The question many may ask is why? The response is that there are things we may avoid saying or listening to but at times we need to in order to prevent others from having to deal with such harsh truths and realities! 


Being private does not mean being ‘social’ or ‘rude’ or being ‘stush’ or ‘unsociable’. It is called keeping your personal matters to minimal people which can occur for several reasons:

1. You cannot deal with a lot of people. 

2. You don’t want to have to answer unnecessary questions.

3. You don’t have too much time or energy. 

4. You don’t have time for the ‘faker-shaker deal’- a term I use for those who pretend, act pretentiously and generally use a fa├žade because they feel they need to for the sake of appearances. 


Many may choose to question why people keep to themselves and these are some of the many reasons that they may not understand. Instead they may choose to judge and condemn you. Leave them to deal with the karma they create and remember the important practice in life is treating people the way you want to be treated. Once you do that you will be at peace and you will have peace of mind. Just be sure that you do not let anyone take advantage of you or your kindness. 

Something to always remember!


It is also important to note that with all things given respect goes a long way. Putting up appearances does the most harm to the person putting up the appearances. 


Imagine my horror when weeks ago I placed a post and it I got a Ha-Ha-Ha comment to a photo I used which read, “When I look at my students I see unlimited possibilities.”
It wasn’t so much that it was Ha-Ha-Ha as it was from someone who has a child of her own. It was nothing short of distasteful but it was valuable insight of the mindset of many who choose to give up on our students and how they can positively contribute to their lives.

You better believe it! It’s another Rachael Ann Thomas-Jeremiah original!

 
The thought that came to mind was, ‘Imagine how horrific it would have been if this is how I viewed my students or my role as a teacher.’ Thankfully it never was and my students could all attest to this. Their progress and achievements is also proof of their determination and their beliefs.


‘Faker-shaker’ may sound neat and maybe even poetic but it is a harsh reality. Being true to oneself is what counts! Life is filled with opposites but those opposites help to create the balance and equilibrium that are so desperately needed. Those opposites help us to find ourselves and help us to appreciate this journey we call life. 

A SWS Designs original- another personal quote


Don’t be the person who paints an image on social media of caring but otherwise turns a blind eye and a deaf ear. Don’t be the person who is dismissive who cannot comprehend the  negative messages their actions are creating.


Lots of food for thought right? Maybe! All in all it is a reminder to keep your focus, it is a reminder to be true to oneself and it is a reminder that you need to be as real as possible so that the world doesn’t get to you!

Celebrating Clarity!

Life is what you make it! Well it certainly is!

Life presents us with so much and it can be a mix of so much- overwhelming, heart wrenching, confusing and complicated. But it can also bring reason and clarity!

Clarity can be as bright as daylight! Clarity can be as harsh as the coldness that hits your face in winter! Clarity can hit you like a ton of bricks! Clarity can knock you off your feet but you it is important that you stay grounded!

Sometimes you need to have a good laugh and sometimes you just need to get rid of the bottled up pain. Whichever it is do what is necessary!

Like many people I have had my fair share of experiences and I have learnt many valuable lessons:

  1. People will always think what they want. They may even call you names because they don’t know you or like you.
  2. You cannot force anyone to do anything. You can try to help others but only people who want your help will accept it.
  3. Be careful who you talk to! Talk to God knowing He always hears and He always answers.
  4. Never let yourself be disappointed! People will always do as they wish.
  5. Always focus on what you are sure about. Those are the things that will keep guiding you.

Reality presents us with so many harsh truths that sometimes they may feel hard to swallow but here are some useful things which should be of help:

  1. Always keep your focus. It’s easy to get distracted but keep your goal in sight and always work towards it.
  2. Never resort to treating people the way they treat you! Nothing good can come from that! Focus on being you and always being a better you! Let people deal with the karma they create.
  3. When you get clarity embrace it! Celebrate the things that didn’t work out and celebrate the toxic people that get removed from your life!
  4. Never give up on prayer. Let God be your comfort and your solace!
  5. Always look to each new day as a new dawn! Remember every moment matters!
  6. Always accept reality for what it is! Some circumstances cannot be changed and people need to want to change in order to effect change.
  7. Don’t allow yourself to be a pawn in anyone’s game. Let them keep playing their games and reap the rewards of their actions.
  8. If you ever feel alone don’t. Close your eyes and allow yourself to feel all that is good and also allow yourself space to remember that you are beautifully made and designed by the Master.

Be clear! Be firm! Be resolute! Be you and love yourself! Repeat!
