Méchant

There is a time for everything and wickedness like the seasons only lasts for a time. Change always comes. We all reap what we sow. We are born of the womb and at the end we are entombed. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

Reminiscent

Take time to remember that you are human and you make mistakes. Don’t dwell on your mistakes, you can’t change them, but they can be passports to your future decision making. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

Predators

Some of us are trained to believe in the idea that humans can be transformed. Each of us are whom we chose to be. You can only change yourself. Do you expect a lion, a tiger, a leopard, a snake or an alligator to behave outside of who they are? Why then do you think […]

Change is Personal

We tend to think that we can change people and situations. The only person we can change is us. The only situations we can change are those that affects us. Life is a full time learning institution.

    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, […]
