Joy and love are the most two essential things in life. We do everything for our pleasure. If we are not happy in our life, there is no point in living a life. So, always try to stay happy, no matter what happens.

However, some toxic people will try to take away your happiness. They will work hard to poison your life with a dose of sadness. You have to make sure that you are not letting those people take control of your life. Or else, it will be hard for you to live your life according to your preference. You have to understand that God is the only one who is responsible for taking away your pain. He is the only one who will take care of your sadness and sorrow.

Therefore, you have to understand that no one has the power to make you sad. Similarly, no one has the power to take away your happiness. Thus, the best thing that you can do is to stay away from toxic people. They are the reason for your melancholia.

Nobody is perfect. We make mistakes. We say the wrong things. We do wrong things. We fall. We learn. We grow. We move on. We live!

Nobody is perfect, we often say wrong things, do wrong things and thus, make a lot of mistakes all throughout our lives. However, that’s what makes us human beings. It’s important to understand that all of us make mistakes but that does not depict that we are a failure. Many times things don’t happen the way we want. We fail, but then again, we get up. We learn from each other all the time and this makes us keep growing. We move on and thus we live.

It’s important to understand that we are human and that to err is human, all that we do, is part of our lives. It doesn’t matter how many times we’ve done wrong, all that counts is how many times did we make it happen and stood up all over again to rectify the wrong doings. 

All that matters in life is not the number of times we failed, but the number of times that we got up.

Sayings of the Wise

If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito

Dalai – Lama
Tap Elderly Women's Wisdom for Youth (TEWWY)

Never think that you are too small to make a difference. Never place yourself in such a low position. Never think of yourself as being insignificant. No one in this world is insignificant. All of us are worthy of doing something useful in this world. Those who can do that are the ones who have dedicatedly done their work without looking at anything else. Those who are trying will certainly do something. But if you do nothing and keep yourself in a low key position, and with a low self esteem, you cannot do anything at all.

All the people we have around us are the people trying to make a difference in their lives. At least everybody is trying to do something worth for the nation. If they can do it, what’s stopping you? If you think you are not worthy enough, try sleeping with a mosquito. Because you see mosquitoes are such tiny creatures, but even a single one is enough to ruin your good night’s sleep. So never think low of yourself. Even the smallest creatures of the world can do wonders. Scientists say that and ts can carry 20x of their body weight, termites make huge colonies underground, and there are many more examples. 

Always keep your head high and keep trying, success will surely come your way. Good luck.

Believe In Yourself And You Will be Unstoppable!

Unknown
Tap Elderly Women's Wisdom for Youth (TEWWY)

The limiting item in your ability to be unstoppable is yourself. All you need to do is believe in yourself. When you believe in yourself, you will believe that you can get the result you want. If that’s a possibility, then it’s not so silly to do the simple things that you know will get you there. With consistency you pick up momentum and then boom! You’re unstoppable!

You see where it all starts? It starts within you. You need to believe that you can do it. You also need to be sure it’s what you truly want. You cannot second guess your ability or reasons, you just need to go for it. 

So what steps are you taking today to become unstoppable?

Be who you are, not who the world wants you to be!

Quotespedia
Tap Elderly Women's Wisdom for Youth (TEWWY)

Always be who you are. Human beings have the tendency of trying to impress other people. Many times we forget to live a life. It’s essential for us to understand that there’s no point of trying to impress everyone around us.

Be who you are, and not who the world wants you to be. As you go on meeting different people in your life, you will see that everyone has their own set of likes 👍🏽 and dislikes 👎🏽 and you can never satisfy anyone to the fullest.

Always, be who you are, and do not rush to modifying yourself to please others. This is because, it is your life and that no one has the right to dictate how you should be.

Make sure that you follow your passion and therefore, do something that actually meets your preferences. Follow your dreams, and try to be the best version of your own self. It’s only when you be the way you are, you stay stress – free and that shall help you become the best version.

Beautiful things happen when you distance yourself from negativity. Spend your life with people who make you smile, laugh, and feel loved.

Roy T. Bennett
Tap Elderly Women's Wisdom for Youth (TEWWY)

When you let go of all that is not meant to be in your life, you create space for better things to enter. You attract better things, when you let go of negative things without resistance. You are so much more than you could ever imagine, and you deserve the very best.

We work for a better tomorrow. But when tomorrow comes, instead of enjoying it, we are again thinking of a better tomorrow. Let’s have a better today!

Unknown
Tap Elderly Women's Wisdom for Youth (TEWWY)

We always work for a better tomorrow and we need to understand that instead of crying over all that has already occurred, we should always focus on making our future as beautiful as possible. We should always look for a better tomorrow, and try to understand that it is absolutely useless to dwell over the past incidents as we can in no way get back to the old days and change them all over again.

On the other hand, we should also be careful that we do not get on receiving ‘tomorrow’ thinking every day is an opportunity to bring an excuse on the table and try to postpone the work for the day. It is essential to understand that you cannot go on having a ‘tomorrow’ every single day. Hence, it is important to understand that when tomorrow comes, you should always think of making that very present a better day for you. You must have the wisdom to realize that you have got today as one of the best gifts of your life, and thus, you should leave no stone unturned to make it the best day of your life. You should always think of working on your present and try making it the best day possible. The only thing that you have your control upon is ‘today’ and you should thus, try making it the best day of your life. When tomorrow comes, instead of enjoying, we again think of a better future ahead. Thus, it should not always be the case. You must have the potential to understand that each and every single day brings an opportunity in your life, and you should take full advantage of it. 

You should be wise enough to count things in your own way, and know that the world has got its own clock, and you lag behind if you are not able to keep pace with it. Hence, you should always count your ‘today’ as the best gift ever, and try making it the most beautiful day of your life.

Not everyone is going to understand your journey.
Not everyone is going to believe in what you believe in. You are on your own path, so never change who you are. Stay True, Be You!

Unknown
Tap Elderly Women's Wisdom for Youth (TEWWY)

We often struggle to be understood by people. While it’s important to be understood, because we don’t live in isolation, it’s first and foremost important for us to understand the journey that we have embarked on. If you have a clear mission and a clear vision, continue with your journey because you know where you are going.

Likewise, people do not have to believe in what you believe in because we are all different. You are an individual with your own way of doing things. Do not be swayed by others, do not change who you are to please others. You should stay true to yourself and try to do the right thing regardless of others may or may not be doing. Many of us find it challenging to stay true to ourselves because we try to please others. You are You, and that is a person that deserves respect and appreciation.

When your friend is getting a shave, wet your head!

Swahili wisdom
Tap Elderly Women's Wisdom for Youth (TEWWY)

This saying serves as an alert to all human beings. It alerts us to be prepared all the time for whatever might happen to us. Like for example, if you see a neighboring country being invaded, you should prepare yourselves as a country because the same might happen to your country too. You would normally like to be prepared when the same happens to your country.

Another good example is of your neighbor’s house catching fire. You are not expected to just stand and watch, instead, you should do something to protect your own house from catching fire.

Also a good example could be that of a famine in a neighboring region/country. When you see famine in a neighboring country, you should start preparing yourself for such a situation. Under normal circumstances, people should start using economically the food reserve they have otherwise they might also be faced with the same fate.

In life, we should always be on the alert to avoid or be prepared to deal with the unforeseen tragedies/circumstances. We should always be ready to learn from each other to avoid bigger impacts.

Laugh, and the whole world laughs with you. Cry and you cry lol alone.

Tap Elderly Women's Wisdom for Youth (TEWWY)

When you are happy, people will want to be around you and share your happiness. However, when you are sad, people will avoid you. Nobody wants to share somebody’s misery.

Let’s take an example of a married couple. When the couple is together living happily, many people will want to visit them and be around them. If however they get separated, no one will want to pay a visit or be close to them. This is the way of life. It’s just how life is.

The Healing Hands Project: Wisdom and Wellness through Art

The Healing Hands project will economically empower people to achieve financial autonomy by building entrepreneurial skills and embedding skills transfer within the community – eliminating poverty as a driver of ill mental health.
