Look closely at the ways of NATURE because this is the parallel of our own lives.

It’s the proverbial day after (Ian), though we are still feeling the effects of rain and wind. I am so grateful for Nature’s mercies!

Let’s consider ways in which we can support & offer hope to others.

As I journey through this cycle, I am reminded of the ways our bodies also move through cycles and how important it is for us to remember and be mindful of this. As much as the sun shines, darkness will also come. As much as we are youthful and energetic, age and pain and decline will come. This is why it is so important to examine the way we live, not wasting precious time on resentment and dislike which will only lead to regret one day soon. For anyone marching towards forty or fifty or sixty, know that life is journeying fast forward. In what may seem like the blink of an eye, old age will descend. Your circle of friends will get smaller and aches and pain may become the norm. Think about how you want to grow and live and celebrate your LIFE now! Look closely at the ways of NATURE because this is the parallel of our own lives. Do everything you can to go with the flow, send forth positive vibes and prepare to live a life that balances with the HARMONY of NATURE!

Yesterday I asked about TRIBE on my Facebook post, knowing full well that we do not reach out and connect with others as we ought to. That at times we hold back ourselves, refusing to support and uplift and elevate each other, even when it is as simple as clicking on someone’s post to give it a like or an acknowledgment. Let’s consider ways in which we can support and offer hope to others. Let’s look at ways we can learn from them and be certain to acknowledge their presence in our life. Let the members of your tribe know their position in your life and build on the strength of the relationship so they may remain members of the constant and enduring circle of your life, steady and firm in those days that will dim and darken like the shadows of the hurricane season.  


About Dr. Marvalous!

I am an educator, author, and community/cultural activist of Jamaican heritage, deeply concerned about the way we shape and are shaped by society. How do we engage the resources around us to realize our creative potential? How do we give of ourselves to become the change we want to see in this world? It is my intention to engage an audience in energetic and provocative discussions on these issues.

    The hurricane season occurs between June to November every year and can be so terrible and frightening. We have to stay strong and prepare for it the best we can.

    People need to prepare themselves for the hurricane season. It can be rough.

    Well said Marva! I agree that we must observe nature closely and pay attention to the model it offers for symbiotic relationships. It takes a community to support each other through cycles of living; the sharing of vulnerability that collectively builds resilience and renewal.
