Respite Reminder: I’m Taking My Own Advice. Will Check-in Occasionally. Back in August!

Welcome to Mirth and Motivation! This is a Lifestyle/Motivational blog offering an eclectic mix of mirthful and motivational pieces: Life Tips / Advice, Affirmations/Wellness, Women’s Lives, Food, Travel, Interviews, Inspirational posts, Reviews, Peace, AND Social Media ruminations on people, places, and events that shape our lives. I invite you to stay awhile, read some posts, and share your thoughts with this growing online blog community.

I started this blog 10+ years ago, as a way to help agents/staff at the company I worked for stay motivated. After the market crashed and we were downsized, I decided to keep it going. The main goal was, and remains, to encourage myself and others to keep moving forward. It has been a long and rewarding journey.

Over the years, I have learned a lot about blogging, its many positives, and pitfalls, and how important it is to stay focused on our own Why or raison d’être.  We can choose to focus on one of the fundamental rules of blogging which is to make connections with others by adding value through our message/content, comments, and social interactions. We can also choose to turn our attention elsewhere. It is entirely up to us. One thing I know for sure is that if your heart is invested in what you blog about, you will stay the course. Remember to stay true to who you are and why you blog. It can’t just be about monetization. Add value. Help others. Stay encouraged.

Another thing I know for sure is that we all want to be heard, appreciated, and respected; I know that empowering messages are far more appealing than incendiary angling for blog attention. If your blogosphere surfing brings you here, relax, kick back, and share a positive tidbit on your worldview.

 How do we stay mirthful and motivated?

Motivation 2021: Mother’s Day Reflections #mothersday

“Who sat and watched my infant head, When sleeping on my cradle bed, And tears of sweet affection shed? My Mother.” Ann Taylor

Motivation 2021: Mother’s Day #mothersday

Youth fades; love droops, the leaves of friendship fall; A mother’s secret hope outlives them all. Oliver Wendell Holmes
Sometimes the strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws. Barbara Kingsolver
When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child. Sophia Loren

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and Mother’s Day is a special day we celebrate this month too. It’s been a while since I posted because life has been incredibly hectic behind the scenes. The pandemic changed our lives in so many ways, and learning to go with the flow is imperative. I decided to make the extra effort to add a post because both topics matter to me… Taking care of our mental health and nurturing ourselves are two crucial steps we all need to take during this season. While many of us have gotten vaccinated, we are not entirely out of the woods with Covid19. It rages on in many parts of the world, and our prayers, support, and vigilance are required. The confluence of Mother’s Day and Mental Health Awareness is significant because both are about nurturing and healing ourselves. Both demand compassion, patience, and support. Let’s lift the stigma and seek the care we need. How are you coping? How are you nurturing yourself and your loved ones? How are you protecting your mental health?

Musings: In My Mother’s Garden…

After a While Attributed to Jorge Luis Borges
(revised and copyrighted by Veronica Shoffstall)

After a while, you learn
The subtle difference between
Holding a hand and chaining a soul
And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning
And company doesn’t always mean security.

And you begin to learn
That kisses aren’t contracts
And presents aren’t promises
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes ahead
With the grace of a woman
Not the grief of a child

And you learn
To build all your roads on today
Because tomorrow’s ground is
Too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way
Of falling down in mid-flight

After a while, you learn
That even sunshine burns if you get too much
So you plant your own garden
And decorate your own soul
Instead of waiting
For someone to bring you flowers

And you learn
That you really can endure
That you are really strong
And you really do have worth
And you learn, and you learn
With every goodbye, you learn.

My Mother by Ann Taylor
Who sat and watched my infant head
When sleeping on my cradle bed,
And tears of sweet affection shed?
My Mother.

When pain and sickness made me cry,
Who gazed upon my heavy eye,
And wept for fear that I should die?
My Mother.

Who taught my infant lips to pray
And love God’s holy book and day,
And walk in wisdom’s pleasant way?
My Mother.
Affectionate and kind to thee,
Who wast so very kind to me,
My Mother?

Ah, no! the thought I cannot bear,
And if God please my life to spare
I hope I shall reward they care,
My Mother.

When thou art feeble, old and grey,
My healthy arm shall be thy stay,
And I will soothe thy pains away,
My Mother. Poem by Ann Taylor via poemhunter.com

 

“Mothers have the ability to liberate by love or, by neglect, to imprison. They’re our first teachers; they are our first loves.” Dr. Maya Angelou

Children are the anchors that hold a mother to life. Sophocles
Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. Kahlil Gibran
I remember my Mothers prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all of my life… Abraham Lincoln
God may be in the details, but the goddess is in the questions. Once we begin to ask them, there’s no turning back. Gloria Steinem

Happy Mother’s Day: When I think of Mother’s Day, my memories are of events and conversations shared with family and friends with a few strangers added to the mix. Mothering is not always easy, so those memories are equally mixed with sadness and joy, elation and deflation, pleasure and pain. My Mom was an avid gardener, and her gardens were rich with vibrant colors and teeming with life. Mom had her challenges, too, and bore them with grace. Another bittersweet aspect of Mother’s Day for me is that my Dad passed away on the 9th of May. So even though it’s been over a decade, every Mother’s Day brings back memories of his influence on my life. I miss them both.

As a mom, I’ve inherited some of my Mom’s ways and struggled to let go of other aspects of that inheritance. As we grow into our own version of Motherhood, we see glimpses of the past, and we come to recognize how we have become our mothers in so many ways. We strive for the best version of that vision and surrender the rest to the universe. It is a precious job, and for that, I celebrate all Moms this month. What memories do you hold dear? What memories do you let go of? Enjoy the posts and poems I’ve added above and below. May they speak to your heart as they have spoken to mine.

My Mother Kept A Garden by Kelly Z.
My Mother kept a garden,
a garden of the heart,
She planted all the good things
that gave my life its start.
She turned me to the sunshine
and encouraged me to dream,
Fostering and nurturing
the seeds of self-esteem…
And when the winds and rain came,
she protected me enough-
But not too much because she knew
I’d need to stand up strong and tough.
Her constant good example
always taught me right from wrong-
Markers for my pathway
that will last a lifetime long.
I am my Mother’s garden.
I am her legacy-
And I hope today she feels the love
reflected back from me.

LOVE: Valentine’s Day and more… ✿♡✿Happy Valentine’s Day!✿♡✿ February is a month choc-a-bloc with important events and celebrations that bring people together in so many ways; there is Valentine’s Day, Chinese Lunar New Year (Year of the Golden Ox), Health Health Month, Black History Month, and Presidents’ Day. Each of them commemorates a special cultural tie that reminds us of our heritage, relationships, and values. The current pandemic has put a dent in the usual plans we typically have and so it will be wise to consider alternative ideas that could become new and improved takes on our yearly rituals. Take this time to kick back a bit and reflect on what matters to you and your loved ones and how to achieve it safely and legally. Below, I have shared poems, quotes, and tips to help us celebrate all that love brings our way. Come back for the rest…

1) First and foremost, if you are single, Send yourself a Valentine’s Day card and a bouquet of your favorite flowers.
2) If you have a partner, send each other a special delivery of flowers and a favorite/cherished item
3) Surprise a few folks by sending secret Valentine’s Day cards, flowers, or chocolates to struggling friends and neighbors you know could use some hugs and love
4) Make a list of all the things you LOVE about YOU. Type it up and Frame it on your wall.
5) Make a donation to your local Foodbank, favorite Charity, and friend/neighbor in need.

When you love someone all your saved-up wishes start coming out. Elizabeth Bowen
Love shall be our token; love be yours and love be mine. Christina Rossetti
Most people are slow to champion love because they fear the transformation it brings into their lives. And make no mistake about it: love does take over and transform the schemes and operations of our egos in a very mighty way. Aberjhani
Love is a condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own. Robert Heinlein
If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you. A. A. Milne

A Great Need By Hafiz
Out
Of a great need
We are all holding hands
And climbing.
Not loving is a letting go.
Listen,
The terrain around here
Is
Far too
Dangerous
For
That.

It’s all I have to bring today By Emily Dickinson
It’s all I have to bring today—
This, and my heart beside—
This, and my heart, and all the fields—
And all the meadows wide—
Be sure you count—should I forget
Someone the sum could tell—
This, and my heart, and all the Bees
Which in the Clover dwell.

Untitled By Rumi
I swear, since seeing Your face,
the whole world is fraud and fantasy
The garden is bewildered as to what is leaf
or blossom. The distracted birds
can’t distinguish the birdseed from the snare.
A house of love with no limits,
a presence more beautiful than venus or the moon,
a beauty whose image fills the mirror of the heart.

Close close all night By Elizabeth Bishop
Close, close all night
the lovers keep.
They turn together
in their sleep,
Close as two papers
in a book
that read each other
in the dark.
Each knows all
the other knows,
learnt by heart
from head to toes.

First Love by John Clare
I ne’er was struck before that hour
With love so sudden and so sweet,
Her face it bloomed like a sweet flower
And stole my heart away complete.
My face turned pale as deadly pale,
My legs refused to walk away,
And when she looked, what could I ail?
My life and all seemed turned to clay.
And then my blood rushed to my face
And took my eyesight quite away,
The trees and bushes round the place
Seemed midnight at noonday.
I could not see a single thing,
Words from my eyes did start—
They spoke as chords do from the string,
And blood burnt round my heart.
Are flowers the winter’s choice?
Is love’s bed always snow?
She seemed to hear my silent voice,
Not love’s appeals to know.
I never saw so sweet a face
As that I stood before.
My heart has left its dwelling-place
And can return no more.

“This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet.” Rumi

14 Valentine's Day Poems, Quotes & Tips

14 Valentine’s Day Poems, Quotes & Tips

What are you doing for Valentine’s Day? This is the mantra we will hear and repeat till the 14th comes and goes. For those of you who have great romantic plans with loved ones, I say go out and enjoy yourself. Carry that feeling over to the rest of the year and to others outside of your inner circle of family and friends. To those of you who don’t celebrate it, for whatever reason, I say bravo. I hope it means you have conquered the commercialization of this formidable emotion we call LOVE. I hope it means your loved ones know, implicitly, that you are the love god/goddess of your household; you don’t need one day of the year to prove it. On the other hand, if you aren’t celebrating because you don’t believe in love or you think it’s overrated, think again! Did you miss the memo on Self-Love? Love truly begins with us and how well we care fr ourselves.

6) Invite your closest friends on your favorite video conferencing platform to enjoy some virtual comfort foods and gift exchanges and call it a Just Because Of Our Love Party.
7) Treat yourself and your family to a special meal and have each person share at least one thing they love about everyone in the family.
8) Have each family member write down all the accolades and positive feedback they shared about each other, and use the information to create individualized Valentine’s Day cards for each family member.
9) Listen to your favorite love songs and create a song list on Spotify or Apple
10) Search for top Love and Romance Movies of the last decade and Have a Movie-watching-marathon

Reflections: What Really Matters…?

The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing. Blaise Pascal
A heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others. Frank Morgan
Each time you love, love as deeply as if it were forever. Audre Lorde
The hours I spend with you I look upon as sort of a perfumed garden, a dim twilight, and a fountain singing to it. You and you alone make me feel that I am alive. Other men it is said have seen angels, but I have seen thee, and thou art enough. George Edward Moore
I’ll love you, dear, I’ll love you till China and Africa meet and the river jumps over the mountain and the salmon sing in the street. W. H. Auden

[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in] by e.e. cummings
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

The Privileged Lovers By Rumi
The moon has become a dancer
at this festival of love.
This dance of light,
This sacred blessing,
This divine love,
beckons us
to a world beyond
only lovers can see
with their eyes of fiery passion.
They are the chosen ones
who have surrendered.
Once they were particles of light
now they are the radiant sun.
They have left behind
the world of deceitful games.
They are the privileged lovers
who create a new world
with their eyes of fiery passion.

The Price By Henry Fielding
Can there on earth, my Celia, be
A price I would not pay for thee?
Yes, one dear precious tear of thine
Should not be shed to make thee mine.

In Former Days We’d Both Agree By Bhartṛhari
In former days we’d both agree
That you were me and I was you.
What has now happened to us two,
That you are you, and I am me?

Motivation Mondays: MLK Day – I Have A Dream Speech

18/01/2021

“When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir.”  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr

Motivation Mondays: MLK Day - I Have A Dream Speech

Motivation Mondays: MLK Day – I Have A Dream Speech

In celebration of Martin Luther King Jr Day,(January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968, ) I’ve decided to share both the video and script of his famous speech at the Lincoln Memorial on that fateful day in 1963. It is remarkable that the refrain “I Have a Dream” was not part of the planned speech but I am grateful that he was so inspired to utter those famous four words. Enjoy the memories and read up on other posts I have shared over the years on Dr. King. May his spirit and message continue to resonate with us.

In his iconic speech at the Lincoln Memorial for the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, King urged America to “make real the promises of democracy.” King synthesized portions of his earlier speeches to capture both the necessity for change and the potential for hope in American society.

MLK SPEECH: I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation. [applause]

Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves [Audience:] (Yeah) who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity. (Hmm)

But one hundred years later (All right), the Negro still is not free. (My Lord, Yeah) One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. (Hmm) One hundred years later (All right), the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later (My Lord) [applause], the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself in exile in his own land. (Yes, yes) And so we’ve come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

In a sense, we’ve come to our nation’s capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence (Yeah), they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men (My Lord), would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. (My Lord) Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked insufficient funds. [enthusiastic applause] (My Lord, Lead on, Speech, speech)

But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. (My Lord) [laughter] (No, no) We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. (Sure enough) And so we’ve come to cash this check (Yes), a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom (Yes) and the security of justice. (Yes Lord) [enthusiastic applause]

We have also come to this hallowed spot (My Lord) to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. (Mhm) This is no time (My Lord) to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. [applause] (Yes, Speak on it!) Now is the time (Yes it is) to make real the promises of democracy. (My Lord) Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time [applause] to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time (Yes) [applause] (Now) to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.

It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. This sweltering summer of the Negro’s legitimate discontent (Yes) will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. (My Lord) 1963 is not an end, but a beginning. (Yes) And those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual. [enthusiastic applause] There will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.

“And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr

King, Martin Luther, Jr. (Southern Christian Leadership Conference)

Details

MLK SPEECH CONTD: But there is something that I must say to my people, who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice: in the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. (My Lord, No, no, no, no) [applause] We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. (My Lord) Again and again (No, no), we must rise to the majestic heights (Yes) of meeting physical force with soul force. (My Lord) The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people (Hmm), for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny [sustained applause], and they have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone.

And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back. There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, “When will you be satisfied?” (Never) We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality. (Yes) We can never be satisfied [applause] as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities. [applause] We cannot be satisfied as long as the Negro’s basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one. (Yes) We can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their selfhood and robbed of their dignity by signs stating for whites only. [applause] (Yes, Hallelujah) We cannot be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote. (Yeah, That’s right, Let’s go) [applause] No, no, we are not satisfied and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters (Yes) and righteousness like a mighty stream. [applause] (Let’s go, Tell it)

I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. (My Lord) Some of you have come fresh from narrow jail cells. (My Lord, That’s right) Some of you have come from areas where your quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution (Yeah, Yes) and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith (Hmm) that unearned suffering is redemptive. Go back to Mississippi (Yeah), go back to Alabama, go back to South Carolina, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern cities (Yes), knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed. (Yes) Let us not wallow in the valley of despair. (My Lord)
