Knock Knock Guess Whose Life Has Just Begun?


It’s the start of the second half of 2015 and while its a good time to actually reflect and re-strategize (very key) it’s also a time to count our many blessings! The most obvious, YOU!

YOU are alive today, you are reading this post, whether YOU are seeing it or its being read to YOU, YOU are coherent enough to comprehend this, Its great news and YOU know what the greater news is, YOUR Future.

Today we have to make tomorrow better, lets purge ourselves of all the hate, anger and actually start living...

Like the famous poet & novelist Rudyard Kipling suggests in his poem "IF" (My favourite kicker, in moments when I almost feel like giving in) lets greet each day with a new hope and vibrancy for tomorrows' successes. Lets love, lets live, lets forgive... lets give, lets begin to do those things we most feared we may fail at.

*    That new idea for a brand you manage, stop stalling, propose it, it just might be the deal maker and if not, re-think another.

*    That business you once failed at? Revisit it, what went wrong and try again or another (research and knowledge will help you here)

*    Don't give up on relationships, rather, work on you, be the type of person he or she will be fulfilled being with

*    TRAVEL... words cannot explain how much knowledge you gain from travels and it doesn't have to be glamorous tours... you definitely should ball on a budget with this one.

*    And very importantly, get familiar with the digital world, very soon our lives will become very dependent on this and I don't mean in a way that our world crumbles without it but in a way that our actual daily living becomes easier. Therefore, embrace the blessings of technology and the evolving digital landscape, your next breakthrough lies therein, who knows, maybe...

I can go on and on but I’d like to hear from you too and checkout this excerpt second paragraph from the poem I referred to:

"IF" by Rudyard Kipling

If you can make one heap of all your winnings 
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss, 
And lose, and start again at your beginnings 
And never breathe a word about your loss; 
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew 
To serve your turn long after they are gone, 
And so hold on when there is nothing in you 
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

  1. Beautiful blog from a beautiful brain in a beautiful body (lol). Very strong inspirational theme here. Easy read. You truly added value with this piece, Temi. I felt a joyous jolt of fresh inspiration from reading it. My first read off your blog and my first feedback so I'm keeping it simple, short and real (if you noticed, lol).

  2. Hi @Kris, thanks a lot for your kind comments.
