Good Morning!

Her email in essence said.   ‘Every time I set daily goals obstacles keep coming in my way.  Not like ‘change of direction’ but a blockage – either in my mind or an actual happening  that stops me going ahead.’

I found the following quote but it was the picture for me (among my saved photos)  that gave me the answer I most relate to.


Overcoming obstacles.   Obstacles can’t stop you.  Problems can’t stop you.  Most of all others can’t stop you.

The only one who stops you is yourself.

We have to CHOOSE our priorities in each day.   Is it about achievement or about RELATIONSHIPS?

Have a great day – A great weekend ahead.  Most of all be kindness, Light and Love to those around you.


About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    So very true, Faye. We self-sabotage ourselves too often when we refuse to step out of our heads…how many more opportunities to experience the joy of life if we were led more by our hearts! May you find a slice of kindness wrapped up for yourself today! 😘
