The Reveal

If we are honest with ourselves we would know that we are clueless as to who we are. We have to examine ourselves so as to be able to determine whether our choices are in keeping with who we portray ourselves to be. Our growth is not spontaneous it revolves around every decision we make. […]

Boundaries

We have to create boundaries in our lives or else people will walk all over us. There are people who have no respect for the sanctity of their fellow human beings. If we don’t value and respect ourselves how can we expect other people to respect us. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

Remembering

We have to remember who we are, where we came from and what lessons we have learned along the way. Vigilance and awareness has to be the companions we keep. Knowledge is key to self preservation. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

What you see is what is

Why do we expect people to exhibit behaviours that are not in keeping with who they are? You know who you are and what you stand for. They know who they are and what they stand for. Be steadfast and know that when you know who and what you are dealing with you cannot be […]

At Cross Roads

Making a Choice

Do not leave anything to chance. You have to be involved in every area of your life. Every decision you make should be on the basis of your values and commitment to yourself. If you aren’t committed to youself and you place your life into the hands of others you will be lonely, confused, lost, […]

Challenges and Solutions

There have been times in our lives whether during our adolescent years or as adults when we felt that there wasn’t a way out of our dilemma. As we mature we come to know that no problem is new, that there is a solution for everything. By broadening our knowledge through the books we read […]

Cowed

Some of us live under the weight of intimidation. Though we are free thinkers we cower at the behest of others. If we are afraid to act because we fear retaliation then we have co-opted-ourselves into becoming co-conspirators. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

Growth or Stagnation

Is what we were yesterday the same we are today? Growth is a continuous process. If we don’t grow, who we are dies at its core. Are we comfortable with stagnation because it supports our lifestyle and beliefs, regardless of however erroneous they may be? If we can’t comprehend that it is our aggression, exploitation […]
