Death

Death just doesn’t happen at the end of our life, a piece of us die every time we choose to deny the humanity in each other. It occurs when we are desensitized to the suffering around us, because we are not touched by it. It also occurs when we uphold injustice because we are immune […]

Circle of Life

We are all born into a cyclical life. We are born, we grow up, we marry, we become parents, we grow old and we expire. The cycle doesn’t always work in that order, for sometimes our children die before us. There is also separation and divorce. Life teaches us that nothing remains the same, we […]

The Present

The present doesn’t stand at the precipice of a mountain. In the present is where possibilities exists. Renewal is seeded in the present by every word we speak and every thought we heed. When we live consciously in the present we become aware of our part in this cosmic experience. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

Thankful

The mere fact that we are alive in this moment is cause for celebration and thanksgiving. Our existence is miraculous. Let’s make this world a better place by becoming a force for good instead of evil. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

Respect

Respect for self, respect for others should be adhered to at all times. Life is not a pyramid scheme, there is enough for us all. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

Death

Seeing the disparities in this Universe I wonder whether we have taken the time to look at death as it relates to us on a personal level. There is no escape from physical death. As a people we look on death as having no relationship to us, it only happens to other people, we are […]

Pandering

We can’t be authentic if pandering is our modus operandi. We know why we do it, we do it so that we can be favoured. The question we ought to ask ourselves is: Am I not worthy of living my truth? © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

At Cross Roads

There are times in our lives when we find ourselves faced with making a decision between choice one and choice two when both choices have ruinous results. Life is not an exact science so we have to be resourceful and come up with alternative means towards achieving our desired results. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2020

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, […]

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
