Take The Steps

Filed in Courage, God, Hope, Inspirational, Life by on May 31, 2016

take the steps towards your future with courage and determination. Mercia Tapping

I hate the feeling that life could be just drifting by me. I have always detested that feeling as I have known for a long while that life as we know it on earth, is not infinite. But there is a saying “God helps those who help themselves”.

Sometimes it takes mega doses of courage and persistence to walk towards a new future, or even believe there is one out there waiting for you. Find the courage my friends and you will find your future.

Behind Every Winner

Filed in Courage, Hope, Inspirational by on May 30, 2016

behind every winner there lies a string of failures. never give up. Mercia Tapping

If I look back on my life, I can see many spectacular successes, the things that people boast about. Equally, I can see failures where I tried, perhaps very hard, and fell splat on my face. The failures were always bruising, often humiliating. But I never gave up. After the requisite amount of time licking my wounds, for I am very human, I would try again and again. I am still trying and have not given up on life. I hope the same for you.

Take Matters Into Your Own Hands

take matters into your own hands. spoil yourself! Mercia Tapping

I really did like this photo, although I am not suggesting that you should always spoil yourself with food. In fact, I eat ultra healthy.

But I do think that each of us needs to find some way of spoiling oneself, to put a little levity and respite into one’s life. I believe in that very strongly. I find that when I plan a treat, it gives me a lift to contemplate and anticipate it when I wake up in the morning. So go for it!!!

In The End No One

Filed in Friends, Inspirational, Life by on May 28, 2016

in the end no one can tell you how to live your life. it is up to you to decide. Mercia Tapping

I certainly have had my fair share of “shoulds” and “oughts” dispensed by well meaning relatives, teachers in the past, and even friends today. But in the end, you get to decide. It is your life and your responsibility. That is both the good and the bad news!!

Life Is Like A Blank Canvas

Filed in Courage, Hope, Inspirational, Life by on May 27, 2016

life is like a blank canvas waiting for you brush to put splashes of color on it. Mercia Tapping

I have survived several major storms in my life over recent years which were so strong I am amazed that I am left standing. I guess you never know until you are tested. But after the storm has passed I have been reflecting that I have both the power and the responsibility of designing the next chapter of my life.

And so life is like a grand experiment, or a blank canvas in which I am dabbling with splashes of paint as I find what I want to be in my life now that I am living, not merely stoically going through the storm.

Enjoy The Magical

enjoy the magical and mysterious today! Mercia Tapping

Sometimes I have to have a little talk with myself when I find myself walking around with blinders on; but when I open my eyes, and look a bit more closely, magic starts to happen!! So much to see if only you look!

You May Bend

Filed in Courage, Hope, Inspirational, Life by on May 25, 2016

you may bend but never break, despite the blowing of the wind. Mercia Tapping

There have been times in my life when the wind has been blowing at gale force of levels. But the thing that kept me from breaking, and I admit to coming perilously close, was to remind myself that winds would eventually die down. Nothing this bad could last forever, and so I bent with the wind, accepting that the winds would would blow but not last forever.

You Only Have One Body, Respect It

Filed in Cancer, Health, Hope, Inspirational, Life by on May 24, 2016

you only have one body, respect it, nourish it, celebrate it. Mercia Tapping

It has taken me far too long in life, and only after surviving cancer, to realize that unless I truly take care of my body, I will not be able to accomplish what I feel I have been placed on this earth to do.

I now take care of my body, not for some kind of narcissistic admiration but out respect for what I have been given. It is a very kind of different appreciation.

Gather Your Field Of Dream

Filed in Health, Hope, Inspirational, Life by on May 23, 2016

gather your field of dreams. it starts with a dream. Mercia Tapping

I was always a daydreamer, even as a young child I could get lost in my dreams. But there is such a healthy side of dreaming. Many of us want to change our lives in some way, or accomplish something that may seem initially beyond our grasp. Dreaming is the first step.

I now invent health related products, but they all start with a “I wish there was a product that did X”. So allow yourself to dream. You have no idea of where it might take you.

Sometimes You Do Not Get

Filed in God, Grief, Life by on May 22, 2016

sometimes you don't get what you deserve in life and ask "why me?" "why not me?" only god knows the answers. Mercia Tapping

Sometimes bad things happen to bad people. They get what they deserve. But for most of us, pain and tragedy can drop in out of the sky, completely unannounced, changing our lives forever.

I ceased some time ago angrily looking up to the sky and asking “Why me?”. I found that to do so was the fastest route to suffering. Instead, I am at peace with “what is” and trust in the divine plan tor my life.
