Life is a puzzle and we live each day trying to put the pieces together

Sleeping beauty laying next to me

You look so peaceful right now

Your face is calm like a baby

Your breathing is rhythmic

But your mind and soul

Traverses to strange places

 

Sleeping beauty

You wear a carefree face

All your worries are cast aside

As you linger to worlds unknown

Your body jerks with every new discoveries

You see in your dreams

 

Sleeping beauty

You smile in your sleep

You desert the outside world

As you roam to an intangible world of dreamers

 

Sleeping beauty

You’re adorable and powerless at the same time

You lay there like a baby

But your body is left vulnerable

To a world of unrest

 

Sleeping beauty

Escape into your dreams

I will stay watch

And ensure safety of your peaceful body

Till you join me back

I will wait peacefully for you

pin

 

Pinterest is increasingly becoming one of the most notable platforms to help drive your business while having fun pinning. First and foremost, you need to be more creative with the images you choose to use on Pinterest, because imagery is always important when it comes to social media especially Pinterest where half of your communication is through imagery. Thus, having the right image is all it takes to boost your visibility and get a great following to your account.

Here are a few tips to take into account when creating a Pinterest account for your business.

1. Use Descriptive Images – when it comes to Pinterest clear images are key to being noticed. Make your images more descriptive and attention grabbing. If you’re taking your own pictures, take clear distinctive shots that tell a story.

2. Informative – Your images should be accompanied by detailed information that gives the user a clear understanding about that particular image. The more information you provide with your image, the better chances of being repined by other boards.

3. Create Clear Board – Every board needs a name to make it easier to pin and reduce clutter. Don’t over pin items on one board because this may hinder your chances of getting noticed by others, no one wants to look at a board that is poorly organized, and it is also a good idea to rearrange your boards more often to give your account a fresh look.

4. Re-pin – Always remember that repining is another way to boost a following to your account. If someone pins one of your pins, don’t hesitate to return the favor by repining from their board. That gesture alone, is a beginning to building camaraderie with others.

5. Comment on other boards – Comments are a good way to build a connection with other boards/Pinterest accounts. Take the time to comment on other boards and help your metrics go up. Because the more interactions you have with others the more noticeable your board will become, and just like that your business gets a great following.


Stranger, I don’t know your name

I don’t know your past

I don’t know where you’re headed

But I know, you wish you knew me

 

Stranger, I don’t know your thoughts

I don’t know your tomorrow

Your journey is a mystery

But I know, you wanna walk with me

 

Stranger, I don’t know your voice

I don’t know your smile

I don’t know your wit

But I know, you wanna make me laugh

 

Stranger, I know you’re thirsty for my attention

Come closer and drink from my fountain

Until you’re no longer thirsty

And you ‘ll cease to be a stranger I used to know

 

Together we shall hold hands

And walk into the sunset

For tomorrow will no longer be a mystery

But a future filled with endless love and laughter

She wrote:

“You may write me down in history with your bitter, twisted lies

You may tread me in the very dirt, but still, like dust, I’ll arise” Maya Angelou

 

Indeed she arises at daybreak with luminous hues of love and care

She may be gone, but her name will be a song of a blissful daybreak

Her legendary time on earth was nothing but a breath of fresh air

 

At daybreak sounds of acclamation for her work will echo the mountains

With African drum beats striking the earth she walked on with runes of salutation

About her exit from the physical world onto the spiritual world of the ethereal

People will gather and dance to the sounds of the drums

 

And dust shall lift from the ground like a whirlwind

As people stamp their feet making a thudding sound and sending shivers to the body

Hips ‘ll move in unison like a poet spits her words in lyrical verse that arouses the soul

 

loud accreditation of her work ‘ll resound in from one corner to the next

Her words so strong like a pipeline of dreams sending a burning desire to arise

 

At daybreak water ‘ll flow down the stream onto tributaries of hope and love for the hollow heart

It will whisper songs of hope and strength to rise up and shake down the ills of yesterday

And give many a renewed chance to claim a place at the high table of filled with love

Because love overshadows darkness with a tickled daybreak and brings forth a new beginning

Arise!

Life goes on and so should you

Never waste any second of your life dwelling on what could have been

Instead, get your fit on the ground and be the conductor of your life

Don’t snooze and wake up tomorrow with grey hair wondering what happened

To the green pasture you once set your eyes on

 

Life goes on and you are the determinant factor of which direction to take

You’re the filler of your life

 

You’re the star in your life’s journey

You’re the headliner and your duty is to keep your storyline unforgettable

Trudge onto the path of twinkling stars of the heavens and leave your name

Inscribed into the book of legends of tomorrow

 

Life goes on and will never slow down for those who drag their feet

Life is like a bot of lightening traveling at 180 miles an hour

Defining you with all its twists and turns that tempt your patience

Don’t allow life leave you in the shadows of darkness

But be the commander of your life all through the trajectory of light

 

As life goes on, pick yourself up and gather your colors to paint your life

You’re the canvas and let those brilliant colors splash endless colors of beauty

That portray the person you’re and not what others what you to become

 

Scribble your life story in the book of liveliness

As a character of your book, write poignant lines of your life

And make it interesting, grab the attention of others and be a window of inspiration

Because your life is a book that will either be read or be discarded in flames

Life goes on, you better grab on and run with it

Memorial day, is a day to remember all those who sacrificed their lives to ensure that every American enjoys the glory of freedom. But today it is no longer thought in those lines, because it has been robbed by the culture of consumerism. As the consumer industry rises, so does our fixation of shopping. It is safe to say that consumerism is yet another connotation of a terrorist, terrorizing the public with banners of for sale signs, and easily relegating the day to remember the men and women in uniforms into just another day to find bargains at the mall.

Consumerism the Grinch that robbed all the relevant holidays, it is the umbilical of shopaholics, it holds them by the ear, and every time memorial comes around the hit the road and dash to malls or online, because once you feed into consumerism then you are ensconced in its webs and it is hard to extricate from its tracks. It is true that the consumer industry has figured out how to brainwash the public by simply putting up a montage of sale signs during memorial weekend and easily drawing them from the importance of the day on hand to puppet shoppers.

Consumerism is the archetype of a recruiter whose aim is to grow the economy at all costs. Hence, turning the public into insatiable consumer monsters who always want more and are never satisfied with what they have. With that said, you need to contemplate on what is important to you on this very day, and remember to not fall victim to the web of consumerism.

What are you doing this memorial day? Will you take time out of your day and appreciate the freedom we usually take for granted and thank those who saved and died for this country? or will you just like many immense yourself with the idea of consumerism and hit the shopping centers? Whatever your ideation is, take time out of your day and be thankful for your freedom, because not everyone around the world enjoys the great freedom we normally take for granted.

I’m laying here contemplating about my day

Should I go out and meet a friend for coffee or should I stay?

It sure seems easy to cancel my appointment based on the rain

Blame the weather and stay!

 

Its raining hard, I cannot meet with you today

That’s an act of laziness, taking the easy way out

Like in life, people continue to take quick exits

They forfeit any commitments at any chance they get

They are too quick to run to the nearest exit

 

Excuses, excuses, excuses!

Pouring out of the mouth like raindrops

They flow with a certain fluidity capable of drowning oneself in a spiral of self-deception

Detonating the road to success with floods of failure

Yes, excuses are nothing but an obstruction to living a fulfilled life

 

One less excuse is an additive to a thriving life

It is a lucrative road to growth and success

It is a bundle of  joy and happiness

Live your life without excuses pulling you back

Flow with graceful currents like a body of water

Pushing currents in the right direction and make no more excuses

 

Get out there and explore, today is your tomorrow’s history

And you will look back to this day with a big smile on your face

Because it is the day you leaped over from the webs of excuses
