Summer's End / 5 Thoughts on the Rio Olympics


Quote of the day: 

As we grow in awareness, our fear of loss, not having enough or being insufficient matures into love of giving, sharing and collaboration. -Joseph Rain



This past week has seen more cloudy than sunny days, coupled with windswept streets -serving as a great reminder that summer is nearing its end. For me the greatest thing about August so far is the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, Brazil. It has turned out to be an exciting and worthwhile distraction with more events than ever, and more competitors and countries represented -and finding myself watching sporting events that I would otherwise not follow. I'm talking about sports such as Women's Beach Volleyball, Swimming, Gymnastics, Canoe Slalom, Judo, Handball, Archery and a few others.

However, as the curtains come down on this great event it can be said that lessons can be learned from from the Olympians, who all share in the Olympic spirit. I'd say the peak of physical performance, the coaching and preparation for the event, the challenges faced, forging new friendships that shape the world -these elements and much more are some lessons to learned.

5 Thoughts on the Olympics:

1. You can achieve anything you set your mind to do -with necessary help from those that matter.

2. When you lose, it doesn't mean the end of the world. You can come back strong.

3. People will sometimes question your achievements because they cannot understand the work you had to put in, and sacrifices you had to make.

4. Achieving goals, planning for the future, perfecting your skills, and staying focused will always yield rewards in the end.

5. There will always be someone out there with more skills, hunger and drive than you. Sometimes working almost twice as hard will suffice.


Have a successful week ahead.


Peace. Love. Light*

    1. How i got my Husband back Thanks to Lord Alika for bringing back my Husband ,and brought great joy to my family??? My name is Kathryn Louise, My Ex-Husband dumped me two weeks ago after I accused him of seeing someone else and insulting him. I want him back in my life but he refuse to have any contact with me. I was so confuse and don't know what to do, so I reach to the internet for help and I saw a testimony of how a spell caster help people to get their ex back so I contact the spell caster and explain my problem to him and he cast a spell for me and assure me of 48hours that my ex will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my ex came knocking on my door and beg for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married. Once again thank you Lord Alika , You are truly talented and gifted. web:http://lordalikaspelltemp8.wix.com/http is the only answer.

  2. True especially on item number 1. The badminton player from my country won a silver. Amazing coz nobody predicted the pair to win . The girl had 2 knee surgeries and yet she did it.

  11. Oh, how I enjoyed watching the Olympics....I watched it morning, noon and night...cried with some of them that didn't do as well as they wanted..and cried with those that were so overcome with winning their dream. How strong and dedicated they are...I admire them so much.
    Thanks for your inspiring post...

  24. Best spell caster of the year revealed by google. save your crumbling marriage now.

    BEST AND GENUINE SPELL CASTER ONLINE TO HELP SAVE BROKEN MARRIAGE AND BROKEN RELATIONSHIP
    Am Jerry miler, I live in London, and I’m happily married with a lovely wife and three children. I had a very big problem with my wife few months ago, to the extent that she left the house with our kids to her parents' for almost 5 months. All efforts to bring them back proved abortive. Friends and Family were all in concern and my very close mate gave me an advice concerning a spell caster, and he quote; “There’s someone who can handle your situation, he’s always ready and able to do anything related to spiritual matters, I searched for a spell caster on the internet, his advert was everywhere, i found his number and called him on his mobile number +2347052958531. Although I never believed in spell casting, but he convinced me and I had no choice than to follow his advice, because I never dream of losing my lovely wife and I was desperate. So I did all what he told me to do and i did. He told me that I’ll get my wife back in two days after the spell is completed. I was skeptical. He casted the spell for me and i was so anxious waiting to see or hear from her, until the second day when my wife called and said she was coming HOME…..It was like a joke to me!!! That’s how I got my family back through spiritual means and our relationship is now stronger than ever. One of the price I was asked to pay was to tell it to people around me that problems like this, can always be solved by Dr Ewan. And this is his email too if you wish to contact him and solve your problem too covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com , my advice to you out there is to visit this great Dr Ewan and tell him your problems. He's capable of handling anything spiritual and spell casting. Thanks a lot for saving my marriage. covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com. You can also add him up on watsapp on +2349057353987, you can also call him on his mobile number +2347052958531

  25. What else can i say rather than to thank Doctor Okpamen who God used to reunite my marriage. Each day of my life, i ask God to bless Dr. Okpamen for he has made my life complete by bringing back my husband to me and for this reason, i made a vow to my self that i will testify on the internet to let the world know that Dr. Okpamen is a God on Earth. My husband and i had a fight for three days which led to our divorce. On this faithful day, i came across a testimony of how Dr. Okpamen helped a lady in getting back her lover. So, i contacted him and explained to him and he told me that my days of sorrows are over that my husband will come back to me within 12 to 16 hours.. Could you believe it, my husband came home begging that he needs me back. Do you need any kind of help? Contact him now via email: ( Doctorokpamenspelltemple@hotmail.com ), Website: http://doctorokpamenpowerfulspelltemple.webs.com, call and whatsapp him via +2348135254384 OR for more confirmation call or text me on my cell# +1 (914) 517-3229.

  26. I believe in destiny, I also believe I can express my pain or broken heart to anyone whom my instinct guides me to because am not weak or less a human regardless of the criticism I might face from close friends and family. It came to a point in life that I realized I have been losing important people in my life. Just within 3 years, I have already been in 14 relationships and none of them lasted for a month because of my toxic attitude. People keep coming and leaving, and I search for another replacement leaving behind moment we had together thinking that it was the best life to live, until it started to hurt me slowly and making me feeling like am dominated by an evil spirit.
    It is unexplainable how my instinct lead me to King Omituko love solution with this email: |omitukolovesolution@gmail.com| when the future was playing some tricks on me after I was conned by some known spell doctors. I never felt so happy until I tasted the powers of Omituko love spell. Contacting him for help really changed my life and liberated me from emotional bondage. I have now found true love and we have been dating for over 6 months, that’s why am sharing this touchy review. His love spell is simply amazing.

  27. Thank you for your miracle Doctor Osemu Okpamen

    This article is dedicated to the Doctor Osemu Okpamen. I have been married with my wife for 5 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to this genuine spell Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back begging for me back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true. Also he was there every moment until i got my happiness back and he also provides spells that cures impotence, bareness, diseases such as HIV/AID E.T.C You can contact him via email at { Doctorokpamenspelltemple@yahoo.com } or visit his website http://www.doctorokpamenspells.com. He will help you in anything you need and quick to answer once you contact him or call me for more info +1 (914)-517-3229...
