OATH OF CELIBACY

O

Half way into the night after about six bottles of beer, Zinny soon became tipsy. She was a different person now, she had really changed since last month.

Mimi! Mimi! did you hear a word of what I said?

I was lost in thought.

I responded with a big grin plastered across my tired and tipsy face.’What did you say?’

‘I want to be celibate’ She said. I quickly responded, that is only meant for Priests.

Please, does anyone know of some reasons why someone other than a Priest will embark on this Journey.

NO HARM IN TRYING

AtoZChallenge letter N

Do not sit with your heads on your hands,

Do not lie tossing and rumpling the sheets,

Do not walk on the streets like a confused person,

Stop biting your nails while waiting for the bus or train,

Stop walking around in circles because your loved ones are already afraid for your life,

Stop chasing your dreams to the end of the earth.

 

Get hold of it – dreams, writing, worries, activities. Anything that makes you restless and try making it a reality.

There is no harm in trying.

MEMORIES OF A 30 YEARS OLD WOMAN

My name is Sandra and My memories will be told in bullet points to represent every significant point in my life in the individual years up to my 30th birthday. I may not have achieved much, but the activities, events and other things that happened in my life has made me who I am today.

  1. I was born to wonderful parents, who at the time were so much in love. My father was an Engineer and provided everything for my Nurse stay at home mother.
  2. When I was 2 years old, My father lost his job and life became unbearable. He became so angry with mum and I. Fortunately, Mum got a job in the local hospital and my family became the happy family once again. Continue reading MEMORIES OF A 30 YEARS OLD WOMAN

LAND OF MY BIRTH

In response to the A to Z Challenge

The sun was radiant, all-watching eye, its light creeping into every corner, bathing the whole world in a warm glow.

The mini van cruised down a twisting road, grassy, forest green hills looming over the mountainous drive. An endless expanse of turquoise wonder, shimmering a liquid gold, stretched towards the distant horizon. The grasses looked like yarn weaved carpets and the birds hopping from tree to tree chanting in  the distance. The countryside view of Velbert in Germany was breathtaking.

I AM NOT ALONE

IThis is dedicated to those women who feel alone. Sometimes, life may seem very rough or incomplete, you may have gone through disturbing or life-threatening situations, this post is just to remind you that you are not alone in all of your struggles.

Have you recently been diagnosed with a life-threatening disease? Have you been subjected to pain and torment? You are welcome to the circle of women, you are not alone.

TO THE WOMAN RECOVERING FROM DIVORCE, all hope may seem lost, the world may stare, family and friends may have mocked or turned their backs on you, you are not alone. It is not an easy process, but it is always worthwhile. Look at the positive aspects – you may just find that extraordinary guy you have always wanted or be initiated to that passionate love that was only possible in your imaginations. Hang on, you are not alone.
