Grief never goes away, it is like the undercurrent of the sea that no one can discern because it’s calm on the surface. We have to allow grief to have it’s way. In acknowledging grief we can crossover from pain to joy. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2023


We are a work in progress. Some people might want to differ. It’s okay if you do. It isn’t where we were but who we have become. Every day we are given an opportunity to do better than the previous day. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2023


We are the buttress we seek. There is no saviour, we have to do the work that is required to overcome the difficulties in our lives. When we know and knowledge we are all we have the way becomes clear and uncluttered. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2023


We have to ask ourselves before deciding on what action we will take, whether it is motivated by greed, fear, intimidation or compulsion. Who we are is determined by our choices in times of adversity. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2023


We have to use our power of recognition at all times. Foresight is better than hindsight. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2023


Our present circumstances are not related to our purpose. To strive we have to plant ourselves among loved ones who can support us in a loving and nurturing way. Families can be blood related but in most cases they are crafted. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2023

Consult a Book

All that’s happening in our lives has already happened to someone else. We can heal ourselves or find solutions by consulting a book or books. If you don’t own books the public library is the place to go. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2023


Yesterday is an illusion, today is where the opportunity is offered to make ourselves and our world a better place. Our future is determined by what choices we make moment by moment. The present is all there is, no past, no future. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2023
