A State of Helplessness

  Feeling powerless is very demoralizing.   It’s knowing what the fix is but realizing you are stymied and therefore unable to change the situation.   The human psyche is vulnerable.  We all feel pain, and joy.  Demoralizing others does not increase our influence and power, it diminishes it.  We are Gods unto ourselves and no […]

Changing the Tide

  Change does not live in a void.  Change cannot come from the lower echelons of society, who act as though they have the power of judge, jury and executioner.  Change lies in the hands of our lawmakers who can change the direction of the tide and dismantle the persuasive injustice that is directed towards […]

Standing in Gratitude

    It is hard to stand in gratitude when your heart is thumping with pain.  It is in these  times that we have to decompress, breathe and apply self care before we self destruct.   We cannot create change in those who have no desire to change their ways.   Justice is never blind, […]

Reflect

We have to sit back and reflect on the choices we make, past and present.  Taking stock is an opportunity to see what worked and what were total spoilers.  If we don’t carry out an autopsy of why we do what we do there can’t be a catalyst for change.  To grow is to evolve […]

Fear

We all suffer from our own fears, whether it is sickness, death, money, relationships or job security.  Regardless of what we are confronting now we know from past experiences that change is fluid, nothing remains constant.   Be in the flow and ride the waves to a new beginning. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

Beautiful

How do we define beauty?  We attest beauty to youth, and like the seasons, it changes.  Beauty, like flowers, eventually fades.  We don’t wear beauty we exude it. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

Suffering

  If we hold to the tenet that nothing changes with respect to our life, our family and lifestyle we feed energy into the concept of suffering.   Life holds no secrets, we know that as we sow we reap, and that all life eventually dies.  In this life there are no guarantees.  Chameleons are […]

Crossroads
