Treasured Links


(Now this little girl’s what I call a treasured Link. Photo credit: Flickr)

”The truth is that we can learn to condition our minds, bodies, and emotions to link pain or pleasure to whatever we choose. By changing what we link pain and pleasure to, we will instantly change our behaviours.”

Tony Robbins

Our pursuit of wealth (or survival as my dad called it) in life is ridiculously overshadowed by things that ought to be more valuable to us like family, friends, and scheduled times to reflect and truly enjoy life. We work all day, some of us are doing two jobs to make ends meet and that doesn’t really mean we would have enough. The only thing certain in life is time, and at a point, that would also end.

Time is certainly cruel. It flies by quickly and before we know it, the tangible things left are links. But some of us destroy those links, how, you may ask? By what we choose to link our minds and memories to.

If a poor man chooses to link his memories to struggles, he may find it difficult to actually overcome poverty. And if a rich guy links his mind to his wealth, he would lose himself in the pool of his assets, and everything else would pale into insignificance. Basically, everything still boils down to our choice and perception in life.

So friends, link wisely! 🙂

I haven’t been able to write an article for a while because of certain projects I’ve been involved in, which would be wrapped up soon in the first quarter of next year, God willing. I know I’ve missed a lot of awesome posts. I’ve begun the pleasurable journey of visiting as many blogs as time would allow, I can’t wait to read to my heart’s content.

I hope you’ll all have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year. Hopefully, I would write one or two articles before the end of this year. Live free and enjoy every bit of your moment on this part of heaven.

Much love to you all! 🙂

  2. As always, you write fluidly, your words pouring forth with grace. Life is complicated but we can make it simpler if we link our minds right. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Seyi.

    Dear Seyi, how I have missed you my friend. I have posted only a little since I returned in October after losing my dad, but I also have found it hard to visit other blogs while working on my memoir rewrites, which have been going well I’m pleased to say. I wanted to visit you to wish you and your beautiful family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, so it is a delight to find your beautiful post! I hope your new job and all your projects are going well, such busy times indeed. And what a poignant post – your photo of the Lake District is stunning! In these dark times, we would do well to remember the importance of where we link our minds – thank you for your wise words Seyi. I look forward to catching up with you next year, and meanwhile, I’m sending you much love for a wonderful Christmas filled with light, joy, peace and the celebration of the true Light of the world with your beautiful family. God bless you my dear friend… Sherri 🙂 ❤ xxx

      Good evening Sherri. I am so sorry to read about the passing of your dad. Please accept my condolences. I understand your pain, and it would take a while for things to normalise, there are times when the pain would be unbearable, and I pray for the Holy Spirit to console and help you through the uncertain days.
      I haven’t blogged for a while, I just realised that sometimes, it’s difficult having too many things on one’s plate, it’s best to take things slow too.
      I hope your memoir would be released soon; I would be delighted to hold it in my hands and read. However, please give it your all and don’t be pressured into releasing it sooner than you would want.
      I would be on my annual leave as from tomorrow and would certainly visit your blog before the end of the year. I hope you would have a wonderful Christmas and prosperous New Year, my friend. May the peace of Christ abide with you, now, and always.
      God bless you dear Sherri. I have missed you so much too!!!
      Much love to you my friend.

        Thank you so much for your lovely, kind and caring message about my dad dear Seyi, you are such a blessing to me. I hope you are enjoying your annual leave a wonderful time with your beautiful family, and enjoyed a blessed, joy-filled Christmas with time to surround yourself with the love and joy of family life. I pray the very same for you and yours for the New Year, a time of peace and blessings in every way. We press on and do what we can, even if we have to step back a bit, for the good of all. But in the Lord, we keep strong and know He is guiding us in all things. God bless you my dear friend…much love to you and see you soon! 🙂 ❤ xxx

      I have slowed down indeed. I can’t remember the last time I’ve been this relaxed. I’m not working till January 3rd, so, it’s happy days! 🙂 Have a merry Christmas my friend. 🙂 🙂
