The Sunday Post - Heroes

The Sunday Post | “Not All Heroes Wear Capes”

I believe there’s a hero in all of us, that keeps us honest, gives us strength, makes us noble, and finally allows us to die with pride. Even though sometimes we have to be steady, and give up the thing we want most. Even our dreams.Rosemary Harris Wishing you all a happy Sunday. Sundays should be the best day of the week, if not already. A day to relax, reflect and review the week with a large cup of coffee/tea. Unfortunately, these days we just moan and worry that another working week is approaching; but why the hesitation? If you spend the day clearing out and planning your thoughts, come Monday, you will know exactly what you need to do.

Just as the craziness of The Avengers was dying down, I promised myself I would take a break from watching movies that involved superheroes. “Shockingly”, that promise …

At present, I have branded myself as a workaholic, which greatly exists in our family genes. Indeed, I have worked continuously for the past two years with no regrets…I lie, my only regret is not writing enough. I have read plenty of literature throughout these two years, but I have never had the chance to put them into writing. Consequently, I have missed this blog very much. What’s new? As you can see, we have a new website layout. I am using the Zuki WordPress theme. It’s a minimalistic, magazine theme, which I think will fit this site very well. Not only does it display large featured posts, but I also get to add my favourite quotes anywhere I like. Additionally, I am thinking of expanding my blog to …
