My inner self was here today

Didn’t want to hear her say

That what I knew inside of me

Was my own philosophy

She knew just what I had to do

It was here, I knew this too

And yet I did deny her presence

I held back in my resistance

Didn’t want to speak her word

Believing not what I have heard

She spoke so softly in my ear

Swam a mile within my tear

I try so hard to understand thee

Even though it’s all around me

I ignored the secret message

Did not want to be suggestive

I gave to others in my circle

Wrote some words in my own journal

No one knows what we go through

They judge by what they see us do

Although it seems a hopeless case

There’s beauty in our own disgrace

And if you try to see my view

I think you’ll like to know this too

When you argue with yourself

You know your mind and all it’s health

There’s really nothing wrong at all

When you answer self’s phone call

When you try to make excuses

Understand all the abuses

Of how another may mistreat you

It’s not at all in what you do

In the world of givers here

We are the ones who pay so dear

And when we give to those who take

Sometimes they pay us with their hate

It’s not that fair, we all have stories

Different tales and categories

Most times in peace we want to live

It’s not so easy to forgive

And when your voice inside your head

Tells you what you really dread

There’re just some people on this planet

Their judging ways are set in granite

Don’t waist your time to understand

You’ve done enough within the land

There is no higher act of kindness

Than helping others with their blindness

Forget the things that upset you

Remember now what you must do

Before you argue with yourself

Know just where you have your wealth



We all do this!

We all self talk

We argue with ourselves constantly

We analyze everything

We duke it out

We try to bargain

We may see reason

What is right?

What is wrong?

Who’s talking?

Who’s listening

Who answers?

There is just no denying that somewhere deep inside you, there is an inner being that is the essence of you. They are your truth and know if you are being true! The higher self within you needs to be honoured! This self in you, your inner child?…they are pure and tell you what you need to know.

Do you listen?

I am a deep thinker, lover of thoughts, a prolific writer sharing my words. In sharing I am caring. I am a member of the human race with an appetite to motivate, inspire, empower and provoke thinking. I stand for dignity in humanity. I am compelled to a vision that we are all here for a reason, life is like a deck of cards... “My cards. My deal. Life is learning the game!” #opism What is OPISM? I have come up with this term as my nick name is Op and they are my own quotes representing a moral doctorine belief system. Thus...Op+ism=Opism. #opism My Motto! “Dignity is Free” How I live...Embracing Dignity My professional experience is disbursed across industries from financial services and sales to that of personal and emergency care. As one who has trained and coached, mentored and taught; it has become a passion within to witness and feel joy in the achievement and success of others that I have been associated with. I am a lifelong learner and have created and facilitated various training materials. It is through such experience that I discovered the power of positive feedback in both professional and personal manners. I am self disciplined, accountable, determined, humble, loyal and adaptive; but above all I value my integrity! I am a decent human being. It is with my greatest pleasure to share with others the power of positive words.
