Life is… Beautiful

Life, the sum total of human existence

Is whatever you make it

Life is beautiful; Life is good
Life is thrilling; Life is exciting

Fooling myself, I am not

Life is not a bed of roses but
The right attitude can see us through

The rough edges of life not withstanding,
I choose to believe: Life is Beautiful
And a Beautiful Life will I live.

    What’s good? I gbadun (enjoyed) this post, oh!
    But I must hold your feet to the fire. Why is your blog telling me, at the end of the post: “No related posts”???

    LOL! 😀 😀

    Obviously we need to see more of such writing from you, my friend.

    Thanks for the positive start to a positive week, and a positive year.

    The glass is never completely full or empty. How we interpret that determines how much (or little) we enjoy this thing called life.

    May God give us the humility and generosity to share when our cup is almost full… and give us the faith, hope, endurance, and serenity, to live fully even when our cup is almost empty.

    Just like Officer Oluniyi just did for us.



      • Ha ha – no shaking, no shaking.

        I was just teasing… referring to the fact that the plugin / algorithm didn’t find any other posts of you waxing poetic like this.

        Basically, your fans (and your blog plug-in) want more of Oluniyi Shakespeare! 😀

        Have a great evening, paddy mi.

  2. “You’re blessed
    when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.
    “You’re blessed
    when you feel you’ve lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you.
    “You’re blessed
    when you’re content with just who you are—no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.
    “You’re blessed
    when you’ve worked up a good appetite for God. He’s food and drink in the best meal you’ll ever eat.
    “You’re blessed
    when you care. At the moment of being ‘carefull,’ you find yourselves cared for.
    “You’re blessed
    when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.
    “You’re blessed
    when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That’s when you discover who you really are, and your place in God’s family.
    “You’re blessed
    when your commitment to God provokes persecution. The persecution drives you even deeper into God’s kingdom.

    Agreed. With God life is beautiful indeed
