Our Journey Together is so Short

I read the following text somewhere and thought it nice to share it with you.

A young lady sat in a bus. At the next stop a loud and grumpy old lady came and sat by her. She squeezed into the seat and bumped her with her numerous bags.
The person sitting on the other side of the young lady got upset, asked her why she did not speak up and say something.

What History Are You Making?

Today I came across a painting I did a few years back. Another of Life's Simple Joys. It is a sunset showing a section of the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion in Greece built many years back. The temple was built not tens of years nor hundreds, but thousands of years back. Simply put, it was built Before Christ. Sections of it still remain standing today through many generations and will still remain for many to come.
A painting by Anthony Samuel Muiruri - Oil on Canvas

This got me thinking. What I do today, I am bound to meet it some years ahead. It better be a good picture. In addition, what I do today can stand to be seen and touched by many generations to come. It better be a firm structure. So help me God.
Likewise unto you. As the thoughts you think transform into words revealing a vision that turns into substance, let the process leave imprints that future generations will thank God for in appreciation of you walking on this planet. We can't turn back time to change anything either good or bad. What we can do is highlight the good as we avoid any evil in the progression of days. Ask God to help you.

Whatever single thing you choose to do, you are making a history. The question is ........... What kind of history are you making?

Life's Simple Joys

Today am happy for a very simple reason.

Interestingly, when you closely look at life, the greatest joys come from simple things.

For example this weekend when I met with a friend who amidst a hearty laugh asked me this question; "Are you still Smiling at your empty space?" To which I answered "Yes and I hope you too." That event left  me with great joy in the knowledge that the happiness ripple reaches far. It is an important discovery as it encourages one to keep spreading joy even where gloomy faces would naturally exist for several reasons.

It is simple things just like that which, when added together make life a great joy. I know you may have experienced some simple things in your life that may have left a lasting gladness in you. Things like,
"It's a boy"
"You passed the test"
"She said yes"
"Yes I do"
"Not guilty"
"We'll take you"
"The tests show nothing serious"
"I repent"

Take a minute and reflect on a simple event here above or any other that made you glad for months or even years on end. It feels good. Doesn't it?

My simple joy today.
If you have any kind of machine, you know that once in a while they would develop issues. That's what has been happening to my motorbike for quite some time until now. The gear lever being changed every few months. As far as am concerned, this problem shouldn't be. I have repeatedly suggested to my mechanic of how we can reshape the joint of the lever to prevent it from being changed often. The mechanic has suggested that my idea is an impossibility, however my technical mind tells me that it is more than possible. I don't know about you but personally, from the many experiences I have had in the few decades I have walked on this planet, I have a big challenge differentiating between ignorance and cunningness.
This time around, I had had enough of whatever it is. I decided to do it myself. To cut the long story short, it took me two days and a sleepless night of hard work to transform my thoughts to a functional reality. Finally I could smile at my filled space. A gear lever that may never need to be changed in the lifetime of the machine. That's my today's simple joy.

In closing
#1. Other people's impossibilities do not necessarily have to be your own. Especially if you believe in a God who creates tangible things from nothing.
#2. Isn't it wonderful when you see or feel a result of your hard labour?

Believe in what can be and take action to make it happen as you continue to experience life's simple joys day by day.

Your Day is Blessed

As you wake up today, take a deep breath and say thank you to your maker and keeper. There are many who would have liked to see this day but didn't. Not that you are any better from either of them. It is only through the Grace of God that you live.

I read the following story somewhere and thought I should share it with you. You can share it too. Enjoy reading.

Don't Pity Yourself

Be Ok with what lacks in you because there's so much that still abides in you.

As you watch this video of Sean Stephenson, think of the great potential that remains in you. Not what you don't have or what you've lost. The future awaits you with open arms. Are you willing to run towards it with gladness? Come out of your prison.

It's the middle of the year.

It's Summer time. Anthony at Piraeus port Greece meeting a client.
Six months have gone by. We are now  more than halfway into the seventh month.

It's a great opportunity to sit and  reflect back. It's also a good opportunity to sit down and look forward.

When things go wrong.

Two days ago I was doing a Facebook live stream. The purpose of that live stream was to achieve two objectives.
Objective #1. Learn practically how to bring a guest on my live streaming. I had seen someone do so on his own live stream and I wished to do so too.
Objective #2. Learn how to adjust the mirrored image to appear correctly. I had experienced this challenge in a previous live stream whereby I had shown a quote but it was not legible because the letters were mirrored. I could be showing some more text in my future shows so I need to know how to do it correctly.
Sadly to say, both of my objectives failed miserably. I could not bring on a guest however hard I tried and secondly I could not correct my mirrored image. So we could conclude that the whole activity was a total failure.

Rrrrrriiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnngggggggg! I hear the telephone ring. 
I pick it up.
"What's your name?" The caller asks me. Of course this is not the formal way of starting a telephone conversation.

I saw a man with one arm.

Yesterday as I was moving about in the streets I saw a man with one arm.
It was not my first time to see such a man but my heart ached. The man was actually holding a bowl with one hand, the only hand he had and was begging for some loose change. My heart was in pain for several reasons. The man was quite young. He was handsome but had this very sad face that made him look older than his actual age or so I thought.

Give more to get more

Give more get more

Yesterday I said I'm going to share much of my personal stories. This is in order to keep this blog busy. And not only that but also to help a soul here and there. Uplift someone who may be down, encourage someone who may be discouraged and so on and so forth. I hope  and pray to keep this momentum. After I posted this and I shared it on my Facebook I got so much response. Many people watched the livestream that I shared in order to send people to the post. They liked it, they commented, they sent me messages and said much. This feedback I only got because I did something. Likewise, for anything you do, expect something in return whether intended or not. And the more you give, the more you get.

Go out there and give more.
