Life’s School

Life is not a vacation, it provides an opportunity for us to learn and grow or stagnate. We choose our curriculum by the choices we make. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2021


Patience like any art has to be practiced. Without patience life would become a continuous struggle. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2021

An Examination of Our Lives

We have to examine why we do the things we do. Life is not intended to be lived by rote. Actions have to be intentional. Without intention our decisions can become a liability instead of an asset. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2021


Life is fleeting. If we don’t know why we are here it is time to get busy finding our purpose. Meddling in the lives of others distracts us from living our best lives. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2021

One Earth

There is only one Earth. We are in the same predicament regardless of where we live. What happens to a limb affects the whole body. If we don’t relinquish our greed we will all perish but the Earth will survive. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2021


Don’t depend on someone else to fight your battles. You are the only warrior you need. © Norma Bobb-Semple


We need a toolbox with tools in our lives. Our tools have to include a space for respite. Intuition, self respect, moral compass, determination, honesty and accountability are all tools that we need to include in our toolbox. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2021


We have to facilitate growth in our lives instead of traversing aimlessly throughout our lives. Without growth we will all be stymied. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2021

Living with Integrity

Are we living with integrity? This is a question we need to ask ourselves before acceding to another person’s request and before committing ourselves to a course of action. Introspection is better than absolution. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2021


We can’t apologize for being who we are. Irrespective of the opinions of others everyone is entitled to live their life according to their own dictates, as long as they respect the sanctity of all other living entities and sentient beings. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2021
