So much loss in this world,
when you fall out with
someone you can make up,
when you split up with
someone you can get back
together, if you’ve wronged
someone, you can
apologise, and if you’ve hurt
someone, you can right the
wrongs and do your best to
make it up to them.
But when you die!!! Or when
they die!!! You can’t.
So when you say I’ll never
speak to them again and
that’s final, maybe we should
remember that’s not final.
Deaths final, so fix what’s
broke, and forgive what you
can because the day will
come when its just too late.

Our dear friend Chopynson DC of Africa, has donated the following kind words of inspiration, hope, faith and Love. We hope they bring you comfort if facing difficult times…
I want you to know that we are proud of you, because even if no
one does, I do. What you have to understand is that some of the
most amazing people in the world were not perfect; they were
scarred by suffering, hardships, losses and imperfections. But, when they
recovered, they were stronger, wiser, and more loving and compassionate,
which you know.
Your life is going to get better, more than before, if you
believe, and you will be stronger and more at peace than ever.
The truth is that life can be very difficult at times. There can
be a lot of pressure to keep it all together, to be smart and beautiful,
to be so good and perfect which you know, but I only want to remember
again so that you will become more strong.
I know that sometimes we don’t have it together at all. Sometimes
we make mistakes. Sometimes we don’t feel good or look our best.
Sometimes things are not good at all and we feel miserable, lonely or depressed.
If you have lost your way and feel down, that feeling belongs to you.
If you feel miserable — it’s yours, and no one should take it
away from you. Maybe things really aren’t very good at all right now. Maybe
we have good reasons to be depressed, and the last thing we need is
someone telling us to be happy.
But one thing you do need, is at least the respect from others to
let you sit with your valid feelings. You don’t always need a
cheerleader, but just someone to be a friend and acknowledge where you really are,
and how you really feel.
Real problems can’t be fixed with a motivational poster, a cute
quote or a pat on the back. While you are in your pain, it does not matter
how intrinsically special you are, or how beautiful life is, or how
precious each moment is — if we don’t accept and respect our suffering, it
isn’t going anywhere.
So we have to submit to our pain; don’t suppress yours. If you
can sit with yours, listen to it and respect it — in time you will
move through your it. Pain is like a healing emotional fever. Allow
yours to cleanse you and burn away what needs to die.
A new and better you will grow from the ashes. The most important
parts of our life is marked by pain. That is why I said that some of
the most amazing people in the world were not perfect; they were also
scarred by suffering, losses and imperfections. I will love to see you more
stronger and more at peace than ever before.
So that means… Out of our suffering we emerge. Our struggles are
really our only hope. Stay strong.
Chopynson DC of Africa
I have recently been through the torment of Divorce…
Yet Here am I…
Stage 1… awareness, disbelief, feelings of betrayal, death of self respect..
Stage 2… confusion, worry, hopes of reconciliation, looking back..
Stage 3… realisation, acceptance, rationalisation..
Stage 4… re-birth of spirit, re-emergence of self, looking forward..
Remember that people are themselves first. What happens is their will. One can either disbelieve and lengthen the pain process or accept this and shorten the healing process.
Love and Peace
A Celebration for Julexis…
Happy Birthday Julexis, and warm wishes to you
Hope you are Happy and your family are too!
A Birthday is special, so enjoy your day
How many will share it, who is to say?
Nixon, past president, Rod Stewart too…
George Foreman the Boxer.. I hear you say ‘who’?
Think not! young Lady, its nice that you share
A day so important and a family who care.
Remembering all those with a Birthday today, all around the World and particularly those that have no family or friends to celebrate it with. Love, Peace and Blessings from AlanC.
Life may seem desperate… Don’t do it…
Whatever you do… don’t do it
lives would be shattered… don’t do it
People would miss you… don’t do it
I would miss you… don’t do it
Life can be better… don’t do it
Things will pick up… don’t do it
It may take some time… don’t do it
People CAN help… don’t do it
We know you’re in pain… don’t do it
It saddens our hearts… don’t do it
Give life a chance… don’t do it
At least let us try… don’t do it
Depression can be fixed… don’t do it
light can return… don’t do it
There are many ways forward… don’t do it
Share your burden… don’t do it

Talk and discuss your feelings with others when you are low and contemplating suicide. Many viewpoints and means of help can be provided by family, friends and even strangers, that may set you off on the path to recovery and upliftment. Thoughts of suicide are usually based on particular circumstances and negative influences apparent at a particular point of one’s life, that are a phase and will heal and be overcome with time. Even through grief, the body can adapt and heal the troubled mind, given time and a support structure. The support structure comes from involving others and sharing your thoughts, fears, concerns and even aspirations. So if your life circumstances are currently causing you to consider suicide… PLEASE… Don’t do it!

A Post suggested by and dedicated to David George (a Dear Friend) for all who have lost a female loved one. Lyrics from the Cat Stevens’ song of the same name.
I know I think a lot
But somehow it just doesn’t help
It only makes it worse
The more I think
The more I know
The more it hurts
With only solitude
To meet me like a friend
Oh, where are you?
Where are you?
Where are you?
Maybe she sits alone
Beyond the storm
Across the raging torrent of the sea
She knows I want her
And she knows I’ll always be
How can I live without the love
I cannot see
Oh where are you?
Where are you ?
Where are you?
I know there’s someone there
I hear her breathe
Behind the silence of the dark
But I know that I won’t see
‘Til we open up our eyes together
She’ll look at me
What a moment that moment will be
And she looks so light
I could fly her through the night
I know I think a lot
But somehow it just doesn’t help
It only goes to show
That what you never miss
You never know
But I have loved you from the moment
That we knew
Oh, I love you
I love you
But where are you?

As festivities start and people stir,
Enjoying Christmas and New Year
We remember all of those we love
That have crossed the veil to Heaven above
I know you too, have crosses to bear
That make life hard this time of Year
But remember please there are those around
that care enough, to keep you sound
Though the days are long, and nights are longer
Our Love endures and makes us stronger
For those around us that need our hand
In times of hardship we can understand
So whilst sitting in the quiet, reflect on this
Knowing life is crazy and ‘hit and miss’
There are things we can do, to help others along
So that when they are weak, we can be strong.
Wishing you all…a POSITIVE Christmas!
Dedicated to Marlene and family, Trish and family, Dave G and family and the lovely Mo.
Love and Peace from AlanC x
