Revenge-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Desolation

Feature Photo by Kaylee Stepkoski upsplash.com

I do not practice revenge or retaliation, it’s just too risky; in the long term, as with mirrors, they always return my image to me. Sometimes with distortive force! Revenge and retaliation are the evil twins of their mother, desolation.

Throughout my life I have regularly set about changing my habits; detrimental for wholesome, and wholesome for better. It gives me the feeling of a brand new life.

Learning to shape my life into what is wholesome, has paid me handsomely. Just as dunes in the wind and sand with the tides.

Bending in the wind has benefitted my life enormously. I have lost a lot more by being resistant and inflexible.

Impress-Wisdom Snippets -From Peter.

Dress

Dress to Impress.

In a world where looks are everything, I feel strongly about always looking impressive. I don’t dress to impress; it’s just because I feel comfortable that way.

Comfortable in my skin is how I feel; it’s a cozy feeling, and besides, it fits so well.

How I feel about myself, especially knowing I am enough, is my first impression of others. The rest seems to follow.

I drink from the fountain of daring and the tonic of dreams. They are the most refined cocktail for my inspiration.

Mysteries-Four Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Mystery

Feature Photo by DDP upsplash.com

Pursue Mysteries and You will Find Them.

I’ve long been intrigued by mysteries. I have found many mysteries, not by stumbling upon them, but by desiring them.

I am grateful my life dreams have never been affected by the vicissitudes of the events in my life; they have only been inspired by these.

What I would have died for years ago, is a noxious cocktail to me today; I am thankful for wisdom and maturing of the years. As a result, I die for nothing, rather I live for life.

After walking through a bog, then on newly-cut lawn, I’ve no doubt which I would not do again, would you?

Time-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Time

Feature Photo by Grianghraf Upsplash.com

A Day is Coming When Time Will No Longer Be.

I am happy to know, for each of us, a day will come when time no longer exists. The word ‘stress’ will vanish along with time in that moment

I never partition events in my life as enjoyable or not enjoyable. Rather, I consider how I managed each event. This is a more illuminating approach for me.

I love to laugh and to cry. Laughing makes me feel happy, crying gives me a quick release to a sudden pent-up emotion. Both are priceless in their value and their timing.

As with most things in life, adventure comes at a cost. I have to stretch myself mentally, physically and exit my comfort zone, to experience it. A bargain at the price though.

Visionary-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Vision

Feature Photo by Tim Wildsmith Upsplash.com

Be A Visionary

I was a visionary from young, however in my earliest youth, I was not aware of the fact. Now that I have become aware of being visionary, it explains why I have failed so many times.

The trees bend in the storm, because they know they will stand erect once again, when the storm has left. Bend when you need in life’s storms, but stand erect soon as possible.

I have begun to wonder, has the word ‘motivation’ in all its forms become overused? In my case if I wanted to achieve or change something in my life, I would simply  desire it and dream it was mine. Hey-ho, it became so.

As a youth, I was very religious and went to church every day. I went because I was told God was in a box on the altar and I was very keen to meet God. The day dawned when I had a close encounter with God and was grateful to learn God was not in a box on the altar but within me; on that note I gave up on looking and began to enjoy what I have. I have never looked back since.

Choices-Four Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

choice

Feature Photo by Elena Mozhvilo upsplash.com

Mind Your Choices

Our choices are not the only initiators of consequences in our lives. Sometimes we are victims of circumstances created by others. However, our choices will become critical in how we deal with these. What if events initiated by others were, in fact, an opportunity in a victim wrapping?

The actions I perform today, whether visible or not, may take many moons to reveal their consequences. But show these, they will. 

Guardedness is not always a safety net. Guardedness may, at times, be a lack of courage. It is certainly not a quality found in visionaries.

My courageousness has removed the word conservative from my dictionary.

Book-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Books

A Soul In A Book

I never wrote a book to become famous or make money (the thought is enticing though.) I wrote a book to pour out my soul that others might enjoy what they read.

All my life, as sure as the sun rises, I have lived with effects. The lesser known to me were the causes. Yet, I am comfortable in my skin (it fits well) so who cares about the causes?

Never waste your time scratching around with old family documents, you never know what you might find. What if you discovered, even though your grandmother went to church every Sunday, she was a bank-robber?

I never took my grandmother too seriously when she said, “What goes around, comes around.” until it came around and bit me.

Plan-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Plan

What You Plan Is Not Always Best

I do not become concerned if what I plan does not eventuate, as most times the right one replaces it.

If I believe that everything in my life benefits me, irrespective of what it is, I will be rich.

In my life I only see a journey. This journey has no destination, which allows me plenty time to enjoy the journey.

As I have become wiser, I accept my life as it comes each moment. The result is that I live within the garden of a  wonderful peacefulness.

Effort and Serendipity-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

effort

Effort and Serendipity .

I never allow myself to be ‘stuck in a hole’ I get out pronto!

Most things I have pursued with every strength in my life, weren’t worth the time and effort. Those that came to me serendipitously, without any effort on my part, were a treasure.

I have given the issue of risk much thought. Up to my fortieth year risk was a way of life for me. Now, the biggest risk I take is delaying a visit to the bathroom.

I welcome substantial changes in my life; something the order of, ‘ who would believe a beautiful butterfly started life as a hairy caterpillar?’ Bring on the change, I’m ready to fly.

Idea-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Idea

Feature Photo by Mika Baumeister Upsplash.com

Never Let An Idea Go

In case an idea becomes stifled in my efforts to apply it, I place it in a corner of my mind. There it awaits an opportunity to be revived – I never let go of an idea.

I live by the rules I set myself, also those I subscribe to. I do not live by any other. When it comes to laws, I obey.

I am never selfish, because selfishness is senseless behavior. What has been given me in this life, is only on a temporary loan; how I use what I have been loaned will have eternal outcomes. I always share what I have with others.

All die, even the strong. Death awaits all humanity. But more importantly, Life awaits each of us. Offering us her hand and to enjoy ourselves to the full. We will not leave this world until our allotted fill.
