How do you describe a grief for a person you haven’t met in 10 years or weren’t best friends with, but it just sits heavy and hurt in the middle of your chest for more than a week now but you do know they meant the world for their family. You remember their gentleness, their distinct humor, their goodness, their simplicity and a tear rolls down , just like the rain drops on this window glass. I remember the teenage girl with twinkling eyes and contagious laughter, I haven’t met the wife and mother she became in last decade. Our well being was communicated to each other through our families which are neighbours and friendly. We were always keen to receive news of the other and wished only goodness. Her sudden passing has shook me deep, out of the autopilot mode my life tend to switches despite my continuous efforts…
In these times of Coronavirus, we do find so many people in quarantine complaining, whilst they have now so much time for themselves.
For many, it should be the ideal moment to get their house cupboards and house cleaned and to put themselves at ease taking time for consideration and meditation.
Hopefully, lots of people shall now being able to find several little things of much pressure value and shall come to appreciate much more what is around them in the house as well as outside in nature.
“Gratitude turns what we have into enough.” – Anonymous
When things seem tough = easy for all positivity to lose its place in our heart.
consult life in a deeper way => find an endless amount of things to be grateful for.
get to endure life’s tiny pleasures > sunrise, sunset, water, food, shelter, peaceful walk in nature, comforting warmth of the sun or heathing in the house,
> realize that there are some people who don’t even have access to the simplest of things.
“Gratitude turns what we have into enough.” – Anonymous
When things seem tough, it is so easy for all the positivity to lose its place in my heart. But as I am beginning to consult life in a deeper way, I am starting to find an endless amount of things to be grateful for.
When I see homeless people from time to time, having to sleep on the streets all night, every night, I often think to myself, “What right do I have to show my frustration and complain about the tiniest of things that bother me?”
I live in a world where I get to wake up in the morning, breathe normally, and have a beating heart. I get to enjoy today, and hopefully wake up again tomorrow. I have the loveliest family, the most incredible friends, the yummiest food, that sometimes I feel like we take so many…
Fully live in the moment + feel gratitude for being alive.
daily relaxing, distracting, + fun activities
In the last two posts we started filling our anxiety busting toolbox and we are now down to our final three tools.*
Thank you to all the bloggers who added their own personal tools that work. They are most helpful and are incorporated into our toolbox. Choose any tool(s) that might work for you, and discard any/all that are not a good fit for you. Add more of your own resources that work. Adapt your toolbox to suit yourself. The most important thing, regardless of the specific tools, is to have tools in your awareness, to improve your mood, and ease your anxiety, when bad things happen.
Here is our toolbox:
Self Talk Reframing (Cognitive Therapy)
Distraction in Action
Exercise, Diet & Good Health Practices
Carl Jung emphasized the importance of paying attention to…
‘…with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God, and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard you hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.’
Dear God, I direct my eyes on You and trust You with all my heart.
I wouldn’t be without You.
Without your help I would not have moved much further in this wicked world.
Let me help You to make Yourself known to others
and let me enjoy Your benefits and share them with others in all simplicity.
When your partner does something for you or gives you something as a show of their love, you need to show respect by expressing some gratitude; just say “thank you”.
Ingratitude is a sign of disrespect implying that you feel entitled to whatever you have been offered, hence no need to show gratitude. When you say “thank you” for whatever your partner does for you or gives you, you are simply appreciating their love and communicating your own love, respect, and admiration for their show of love. As a sign of respect, you must learn to say thank you, even for the little things!
When we start our life we do not have any specific dreams or aspirations; When we start seeing all those attracting things around us we want to get up from our four pats to stand up on two limbs and to come to conquer the world around us. We start having lots of dreams and lots of aspirations, but when we get older we encounter also lots of defeats and disillusions.
Somehow deep in our heart we may feel a certain call, a cry that there could be an Al Khaleeq (The Creator), but most people do not want to know about some One Who is Greater than they and has their life in His Hands. But without this Divine Creator man shall have to find that life is empty and time is restricted, coming to see that in this life we shall never get to that high point of total fulfilment.
When finding Allahthe Exalted, or the God above all gods, we shall be able to grow and find peace in our heart, how much other people may try to destroy the good name of Allah and want to bring fear over the world, blaspheming Allah and besmearing the Muslim community.
dreams sketched in your duas (= your very essence of worship) > visuals you created in your mind > voice out to Allah = like statues made of clay.
The dreams that you have sketched in your duas, the visuals that you have created in your mind about how that “moment” would look like, the imaginary rehearsal sessions in your washroom where you prepare for the “feeling” lest you dont feel silly- we all have these dreams. Getting that degree or that job, that dream marriage, that dream family, driving your dream car or unpacking at your dream home; all of us have so many things we want, wish for, ask for. The wishes and duas we voice out to Allah are like the statues made of clay. In our limited capacities, thats the closest we can be to the reality we want to have. So we need Al Muhyi to give life to those statue like dreams, by making them real in flesh and blood. So ask Al Muhyi to give life to your duas by manifesting them…
Every moment of the day is good to call onto the Most High. Each moment and certainly when we do feel we are drowning in quicksand are the moments we should know Who we do have to fear and Who we can trust shall come to our help.
Making Positive Positive: A Song of Hope for PLWHAs
When is positive negative
Or right wrong?
It is when living positive
I am living positive:
Now, more responsibly
I take responsibility for all my actions;
My life in my hands
I choose life over death
Wellness over sickness
I am a living ‘positive’
Now, more rightly, living and doing
Surrounded by all that is positive
I make the best of now
Enjoy this moment, one at a time
I am overcoming positive
With gratitude for everyday mercies
Finding and enjoying beauty and bounties, abound about:
the smile of a child; the chirps of the birds
the swinging music of the street trees;
I am positive; HIV positive
I am a living witness; a survivor of the scourge
I am living, I am positive
I am a HIV survivor
Beyond the put down of virus
Above societal stigma
I am living, I live
Making positive, positive
People living with hiv aids
Ifedayo Oshin from Ondo, Nigeria, believes in life and living it well and writes on all issues that affect humanity.

Is HIV/AIDS disability? (times.co.zm)
If we take condition as a point of identification we can safely say may be they are also disabled because people living with HIV/ AIDS are at high risk of becoming disabled permanently or episodic basis as a result of being HIV/AIDS positive.
However, our society negative attitude against people living with HIV/AIDS may be change of this declaration is made because relatives spent a lot of money in trying to find a cure for the loved one but if the World Health Organization (WHO) publicly declare that the condition for people living with HIV/AIDS is permanent like any other conditions attitudes will change and stigma reduced.
People living with HIV/AIDS end up using crutches or wheel chairs as the disease prolong the fact that many of us we have seen within our families or communities so calling them disabled would not change anything but open the closed door and remove force hopes created by society that one day the condition will change for better
This “cross cutting of disability” principle implies the responsibility to integrate disability issues in the main stream of health policies and practice of all Government ministries rather than handling disability as a matter of social welfare sector or charity but as a developmental agenda with focus on promoting inclusive approach.
The National AIDS Committee (NAC) said Guyana is not on track to close the AIDS resource gap by 2015, despite prolonged calls for the government to plan for the scaling down by donors.
NAC in its World AIDS Day statement said it is still awaiting the release of a report emanating from consultations organised by the Health Ministry, the National AIDS Progamme Secretariat and UNAIDS on this issue.
The NAC said that such findings or recommendations (in the report) could contribute to innovative thinking, not only around new sources of funding, but on how best to reduce and/or retain the HIV qualified and committed personnel, either on special and/or normal contracts.
Over 67,000 HIV positive persons receiving free treatment in Benue State (vanguardngr.com)
Over 67,000 People Living with HIV/AIDS, PLWHAS are currently receiving free treatment and care in designated centers established by the Benue state government.
Dr. Abunku stressed that the renewed onslaught includes “increase awarenes of the general public on the benefit of HIV counseling and testing and anti-retroviral therapy as well as the increased intakes of HIV and AIDS services and products in the communities which has greatly facilitated the achievements that have been recorded sor far.”
Africa’s HIV stigma threatens AIDS battle (thestar.com)
It’s a scene oft repeated across sub-Saharan Africa, where young women account for a quarter of new HIV infections and where AIDS remains a devastating scourge. The problem is especially acute in southern nations like Mozambique, where 7 per cent of all teenage girls are HIV-positive. That number doubles to 15 per cent by age 25, according to a report by the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS released last week.
Quality of Life of People Living with HIV/AIDS under the New Epidemic Characteristics in China and the Associated Factors (plosone.org)
A cross-sectional study was performed in Liaoning Province. Sample size (800) was calculated based on the fatality rate and enlarged with consideration on the loss of response. Participants were sampled by tables of random numbers among all registered PLWHA. Questionnaires pertaining to quality of life (SF-36) and related factors (demographic characteristics, social support and network, HIV/AIDS awareness, and behavior factors) were distributed during December 2010-April 2011. 783 effective responses were obtained.

We can see lots of faces around us. When we look carefully we can see through them different characters and different moods, which can influence others.
With Positive Attitude
Not in million, a single face
Can have similar traces
Is it not great design by invisible scientist?
Still we refuse to believe and act as atheist
Did any one think about existence?
Why we stress more on religion at once?
Why we still leave it to the grace of almighty?
Whatever rich treasure we have but we live on pity
How many changes can one make on face?
Let him have freedom to have as many changes
I think not more than thousand faces can be made
Thank God, he has not given any one the secret of trade
We have billions of population
Each carries different kind of identification
Even face lines differ with each individual
Such is beauty with almighty to tackle
So we pray and surrender
Go to sacred place and offer
Out sincere gratitude
With positive attitude
Hasmukh Amathalal has about 300 poems but yet not published in book-form.
“Where’s your attitude of gratitude?” (contemplativeandwordy.wordpress.com)
I have decided that I should be reflecting on all the blessings in my life right now. And that even though I am really disliking the position I’m in right now, there are many people out there who would kill for the opportunities I have been given.
Gratitude 365 (moretolifetoday.wordpress.com)
It’s a proven fact that an attitude of gratitude contributes to our well-being. Everyone is looking for a pill to cure this or that. I have found that a daily dose of gratitude will help you feel better!
Attitude of Gratitude (calebkeegan.wordpress.com)
I don’t always understand why I’m going through what I’m going through but I do know that in the future I will look back with an understanding and I will be grateful for the experience.
There will always be rich and poor people in society (guyanatimesgy.com)
The logic of hate and unforgiveness perpetuates a lie and will destroy the possessor more than it destroys the victim. That lie has eternal consequences, beware of such inner deception for the man and the architect of the placard needs help. The biggest price he will pay is within his own soul that thinks the “rich” owe him something. The rich and the poor respectively are the causes of their own problems.
Positive Affirmations: I have an attitude of gratitude… (thinkbrilliantly.com) My attitude reflects a heart filled with appreciation for the things I have. I am humbled whenever I count my blessings because I know that there are many who are in less fortunate situations.I am grateful because my Creator continues to bless me out of love. I seek to treat others with the same love and shower them with gratitude.
Today’s Word With Joel &Victoria Osteen – Scatter Your Enemies (todaysanewday.wordpress.com)
What are you letting arise in your life? In other words, what are you focusing your words, energy and thoughts on? You might say, “Oh, it’s just so hard right now. My finances are tight.” “My health doesn’t look good.” “Somebody walked out on me.” No, you’re focusing on the wrong things. You’re letting defeat, discouragement and self-pity rise up. Why don’t you turn that around and say, “God is still in control. Somebody may have walked out on me, but I know God is going to bring me somebody better.” “I may be hurting right now, but I know God is the restorer of my soul.” “I may have an unexpected debt, but I know God is my provider. He is supplying all of my needs. He is fighting my battles.”
Attitude (meandtheboss2013.wordpress.com) Your living is determined not so much by what lifebrings to you as by the
attitude you bring to life

“The Bible is indeed the greatest book ever written. It has shaped the cultures of the world in countless ways, and it contains the words of everlasting life.

The longest public speeches of Jesus that we have on record have nicknames: The “Sermon on the Mount” and the “Sermon on the Plain” e.g.. Jesus thought carefully about what and how he would show people the Father, how to be the vehicle by which people were drawn to Him.
Jezus vroeg zijn tijdgenoten: ‘Hebt u niet gelezen’ en ‘Staat er niet geschreven?’ Zo maakte Hij duidelijk dat het geschreven woord van God boven alles staat, en dat het belangrijk is onderscheid te maken tussen wat God heeft gesproken en de menselijke opvattingen daarover. “Laten wij dan niet langer elkander oordelen, maar komt liever tot […]

Bible prophecies do not deal only with the ancient past. They also accurately foretell events that are taking place in our day. But at the moment we focus at numerous prophecies preserved in the Hebrew Scriptures (commonly called the Old Testament) which long before the man was born told about events which would happen in his time and around him, his betrayal, humiliation, torture, execution, death, and burial. From those writings of the Old and New Testament nobody should have doubts who that man is who is called Immanuel, the son of man and Messiah, born out of the root of Jess in the tribe of king David.
In Scripture, all things are directed towards a man who was a servant of servants, in whom people should come to have faith. First we saw the connection with Eve and her seed, and in this article you may see the connection with Abraham.
Already in the Old Testament we find the focus on a son of man who is called the son of God, who shall be the most pure set apart (holy) servant of God who was been told about in the Garden of Eden, to be the one bruised.
Many Old Testament writers wrote about the prophet to come, about whom is spoke in the book of Moses and who shall be the special “Seed of a woman” given by God and who will bruise Satan’s head whilst his heel would be bruised with nails on the wooden stake.
Jewish and Christian literature since the time of Yeshua or Jeshua have pointed to Genesis 3:15 as the first reference to the Messiah in the Torah. Genesis 3:15 NHEBJE I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will bruise your head, and you will bruise his […]

God heeft de wereld van Zijn woord en Zijn profeten voorzien, maar niet altijd wensten de mensen van die leiders of profeten weten, waardoor er verscheidene groeperingen ontstonden die elk dachten of denken de juiste aanbiddingswijze te hebben.
Does one need proof to come to a certain belief? We can look at the signs in nature and find out what happened to certain people in the past, such as Noah and Paul. With the Book of Books, Allah has provided the world with His Interpretative Word.
Heeft men bewijzen nodig om tot een bepaald geloof te komen? Wij kunnen naar de tekenen in de natuur kijken en nagaan wat er in het verleden met bepaalde mensen, zoals Noach en Paulus is gebeurd. Met het Boek der boeken heeft Allah de wereld van Zijn Alzeggend Woord voorzien.
When we speak about “Faith” (iman) we look at acceptance of the Belief in the existence and oneness of God (Allah).and the existence of the Book of books of which God is the author, existing of five main parts, the Torah (revealed to Moses),,the Psalms (revealed to David).and the Writings of Kings and prophets as well as the Gospel (revealed to Jesus) with the writings of his apostles,
Wanneer wij over “Geloof” (iman) spreken, zien wij op de aanvaarding van het Geloof in het bestaan en de eenheid van God (Allah) en het bestaan van het Boek der boeken waarvan God de auteur is, bestaande uit vijf hoofdstukken, de Torah (geopenbaard aan Mozes), de Psalmen (geopenbaard aan David) en de Geschriften van Koningen en Profeten, alsmede het Evangelie (geopenbaard aan Jezus) met de geschriften van zijn apostelen,
