So Much Undone – A Poem

Life is so short it’s important to live it to the fullest!

Opher's World

So Much Undone

 

So short a time to get everything done.

So much undone.

No matter how hard we try

There’s always more.

We leave it unseen,

Unfinished and unknown.

Life is so frustrating.

Even the things we tasted

Will be forgotten.

It is so utterly

Pointlessly crucial.

Could it be that

To know one thing

Is to know it all?

And could that

Be enough?

To not know anything

Is the greatest sin.

An unforgiveable waste

Of the most precious

Thing of all –

A glimpse of infinity.

Opher 29.11.2018

Life is so full and passes so quickly. There is always so much more to do, see and experience. It is never enough.

Yet to experience it is what life is about; to know it is there and to relish it with all your heart.

Life rages.

We have to do, be and life madly. To fill the…

3 Quick Ways For Introverts To Increase Their Income

Quietly Ambitious

So, you’re an introvert who’s in need of extra income. The only problem is that you already work in an energy draining role and you can’t imagine taking on anymore work. The thought of doing sales calls in your own time seems like a nightmare! After a long day of fake smiling and endless meetings you would much rather just curl up in a ball with your favourite book.

However, there are some quick ways introverts can increase their income with little energy! And these ways are quite simple!

But first, why should you even bother with getting extra income

Seven streams of income

Apparently, we should all have additional streams of income. Seven to be exact (correct me if I’m wrong!). We shouldn’t rely on one stream of income. For example, if you’re employed, you shouldn’t just rely on your monthly pay cheque. It’s a risk many of us…

3 Black Introverts That Changed The World

Quietly Ambitious

A black introvert changed the world?

Yes, you read that right and today we’re addressing at least 3 of them!

In light of Black History Month here in the UK, it wouldn’t be right for us to let this month pass by without acknowledging some of the greatest black introverts of all time!

(and spoiler alert – no Beyonce didn’t make this list!)

Rosa Parks 

Let us start off with the civil rights first lady herself! Ms. Rosa Parks, the quiet, ‘shy’, reserved young lady from Alabama. Ms. Parks did something quite BOLD in a time when segregation was the NORM. Her BOLDEST move was to refuse giving up her seat to a white passenger on board a Montgomery bus in Alabama in the 1950s. This was a huge statement during its time as black people were not permitted to ride in the front of the bus, especially at the…

Bold Introvert; Let’s Hear From Pooja

I had the amazing opportunity to work with an amazing site for introverts called Quietly Ambitious (I know, awesome name!) and I was able to answer a few questions about my life and what being an introvert is like for the Bold Introvert Series!

Quietly Ambitious

Name Pooja

Random question: You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why? I would probably be blue because it’s my favourite colour right now and it just makes me always feel super calm and light because it reminds me of a sea/ocean. I think the colour changes depending on how I’m feeling at the moment and I guess blue goes with what I’m feeling at the moment.

Are you a bold introvert? Have you always been one? I don’t know if I’m still at 100% with being a bold introvert but I’m definitely working to get there! I remember when I was younger and just talking to someone was a mission for me but now I’m a lot more social and find it easier to make friends. As a student I used to find it really difficult to speak in class but it’s gotten easier for…

BeGreatGuys Monday Motivation #6

It’s never too late for some Monday motivation!!

“We won’t be perfect. It will be challenging sometimes & we will get frustrated, possibly even overwhelmed with anxiety. That’s to be expected when you have goals and aspirations and passions in life — but the end result will be: a sense of accomplishment, a sense of progress, a sense of productivity and growth. All of those things will come if we DO WHAT WE SAID WE WERE GOING TO DO. ” Sha-lon Moss

Staying healthy isnt a crime-Fitness is a lifestyle choice

“Do what you said you were going to do”

In other words, whatever it is you said you would do, that you have to do, that you want to do – DO IT!  

 

The problem is we get caught up on words, we say things but have a difficult time putting forth the action – for example: “I want to open my own gym”, that’s something someone wants to do, but the problem is, they aren’t doing anything about it and if they are doing something — they are running out of patience and not seeking the help they need to make that into an action; in turn, giving up or complaining. I realize owning a gym would be difficult for most people (expenses, responsibility, learning the business side of things, taking a risk, seeking employees, etc. BUT it is POSSIBLE. Maybe in the moment it seems like a…

BeGreatGuys Post #4 — Being Average is Okay

“The best part about not winning all the time, is being able to lose and still walk away with a win; you kept the same attitude as you would have winning” -Shay-lon

Staying healthy isnt a crime-Fitness is a lifestyle choice

Nowadays, people are striving to be the “best”, the best at sports, work, parenting, school, etc. It seems people steer themselves in the direction of competition in order to come out first, to be granted a reward, to be applauded, and to be remembered as someone with importance. In my opinion, the best thing to do is “be your best self” and that doesn’t mean winning at every sport or getting straight A’s in school; it means living life trying to have a good character, to stand up for what’s right when necessary, following your values/morals that correlate with who you are & choosing to surround yourself with like-minded individuals who don’t want to see you mentally exhausting yourself to be first place ALL THE TIME , but will also be there when you lose. 

 

Being average, doesn’t have to mean being complacent, or going through life with no…

Please Help Stop Vast Pollution and Destruction from Mining in the Amazon! Sign the Petition!

Opher's World

Please help protect the Amazon from irresponsible large-scale mining! It is highly polluting and destructive!

Please sign the petition and send it on to friends.

To the investors of Belo Sun’s Volta Grande project in the Amazon and their shareholders:

Your commitment to sustainability is meaningless if you invest in projects like Belo Sun’s mining project in Volta Grande, in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon. As citizens of the world, we call upon you to use your power to withdraw all your investments from this crazy venture, which threatens to inflict irreversible damage to the environment and the local indigenous communities. It is not too late to make it right.


Brave indigenous tribes are fighting a Canadian mining giant that plans to open a toxic gold mine in the heart of their sacred Amazon lands! One tribe is facing extinction if this disaster goes ahead — now grassroots groups are asking for our help!
