The wait is almost over❗️❗️❗️One more day....one more day 😩. @dudecheckthisshit I’m sorry this took so long bro. Major platforms are really strict 😅. But #triumph is near 💪🏾🦁. #Prototype will be on a lot of platforms. I’m mostly concerned about #AppleMusic#Spotify and #SoundCloud. I’m excited yo. I’ve worked so hard on this #album. I’ve worked hard on my mixtape #ImBored also just so I could keep my #lionpride, my fans, entertained. I love y’all yo. It’s about to be #Lit. I’m too #versatile. My lyrics are amazing. I have #melody and #metaphors. The #LION is #fye 🔥🔥🔥. I won’t disappoint.
In my van driving days I learned that traffic is a good metaphor for life.
It’s a bit of a cliché, but it works. The more we focus on our own needs to the exclusion of everything and everyone else, the harder it becomes to get what we want.
And guess what, I’ve written a blog post about it. The link’s in my bio.
her words seek metaphors.
her words speak metaphors.
the warmth of coffee.
the melt of chocolate.
and of scenarios.
the drench of rain; beautiful.
the peace of the beach; away.
every time she speaks of them,
she speaks of you.
- the girl who speaks in metaphors.

Perhaps? In my opinion/thoughts/wonderings only.
And I claim to know not, while He Knows Best, Always and Forevermore.
InShaaAllah. By Him Alone. Only If He So Wills. Beidhnillah. For everything - InShaaAllah. Beidhnillah. Alhamdulillah. MashaAllah la quwwata illa billah. And All Praises and Thanks are to Him Alone. All and Every Good is From Him Alone. Always and Forevermore. May He Protect us from all kinds of evil and evil eyes, Always and Forevermore.
May He Forgive me and us if we err, Immediately, Always and Forevermore. Allahumma barrik lahum, BarakAllahu lii wa lakum Infinity times Infinity. And Allah Knows Best though, Always and Forevermore.
Metaphors in therapeutic interventions are so powerful because they: 🧠 Allow us to shift our perspective, enabling our ability to unlock old ways of thinking that do not work. 🧠 Allow us to use psychological and emotional flexibility. 🧠 Elicit emotion and utilise it as a catalyst for change. 🧠 Help us understand our behaviours better as metaphors use both words and visualizations. 🧠 Offer us increased insight by associating a concept with an example that we understand well in everyday life. 🙌🏼 An example i use frequently is a ‘battery’ 🔋 when explaining how to feel better.
This has been particularly educational with youth. I remember drawing and explaining the battery metaphor to a 6 year old client who subsequently went home 🏠 and over the dinner table to his siblings relayed the battery metaphor and ‘to fill up your batteries you need to do the feel good things like exercise and eat good food’ 🙌🏼🧠🔋💥🤩 That’s a 6 YEAR OLD! His mother was incredibly proud!
And I was absolutely chuffed!
RESILIENCE IN THE MOVIE
A Marvel fan, Ethan, one of my new artist did this today!
A lot of movies can be powerful #metaphors of life’s hard realities. Real people face real life challenges. They may not be wearing flashy costumes and wielding powerful mallets or throwing shields that boomerang but the resilience one has, as animated by its Creator through the Spirit will make you overcome!
Company, organisation or individual persons-
a defeat is not a full stop, but another opportunity to bounce back...whatever it takes!
May we see beyond the #fiction ! And, enjoy the movie!
Bless you 😊 #lovingsydney#radioman#broadcaster#resilience#massmedia#avengersendgame#endgame
Happy #WellnessWednesday Exceptional ones! What are you doing this week to stay grounded in wellness? 🌳 The passing clouds overhead have been a lovely short-lived reminder that storms pass. They may come through, rousing in many-a-southern Californian heart a sense of dread (HAVEN’T WE HAD ENOUGH RAIN ALREADY?!? How do I drive?!?), but just as quickly, they’re gone, and the sun is back, shining the glorious light of Spring into our lives, and prompting the burgeoning buds to burst 🌷 into full colorful effect 🌈. Much the same, life comes with many fleeting storms 🌦 but remembering that they, too, are transient can work wonders for how we handle them. When something stressful or traumatic enters the frame that is our view of the world, it can be easy to get lost in, to fear that it is the new state of being, the new way of things, and the way they will continue to be. So goes the goes the short-sighted human mind into fear. But like the scattered clouds and sprinkles this morning, the storms of emotional tumult pass just as they came, and generally more quickly than one might expect. When we feel these storms stirring distress within us 💨 it is important that we check in with ourselves ✅ grounding in our sense of self and well-being, 🧘♀️ such that we don’t get caught up 🌪 in the winds of the passing storm. Where our attention goes, our lives go. Rather than focusing attention on the chaos, focus on the direction in which you wish to head and remember that storm is only temporary, always. Sunshine is just beyond the clouds’ edge 🌤 It’s alright to sway in the breezes, just as long as we stay firmly rooted in wellness 🌴
Still from the film SECOND SPRING (Seconda Primavera)
When winter seems endless, springtime can arrive unexpectedly… Against the backdrop of an opaque city, in an emotional intersection between men and women, even a garden acts as a character itself. This rugged, beautiful place conveys a simple concept, a metaphor which applies to everyone’s life: If you really want the flowers to bloom, you have to take care of them.
Second Spring is about the seasons of life and changing perspectives that come with the passing of time. How relevant is age difference in a relationship? How does melancholy for the loss of people we love interact with the complexities of maternity?
It is a return to life for Andrea, a 50-year old architect, thanks to a meeting and a garden.

Sometimes life needs to give us a good "kick in the ass" to release old patterns, behaviors and ways of thinking to start making positive changes of personal growth.
It's definitely not always easy or comfortable at first but there are always underlying important messages from spirit or God, whatever you believe in, that we need to pay attention to. If we ignore the signs they just get bigger and louder overtime until things become so painfully clear that we have no choice but to make the changes. Ultimately, it's all for our own good so why resist?? Instead of looking at things like why they happened to us we should ask what is this telling us and what I need to do going forward that will make life even better than before. Materialistic things come and go but how we treat ourselves and others is all that matters.
Yes, this is my car and it's a total loss. I'm totally fine, though. Actually better than fine, believe it or not! While I'm still physically recovering I should be back to work by this Friday. My apologies for all those that I had to cancel and reschedule this week. Thank you for your understanding 🙏 I cannot wait to get back to what I love to do and see you guys soon!! ❤️❤️❤️ #lessonsareblessings#personalgrowth#positivityonly#blessingsindisguise#lifeisforlearningandgrowing#timeforanewcar#kickintheass#metaphors#thankyouspirit

Viena gražiausių metaforų, kokių esu skaičiusi, apie esmę, apie požiūrį, apie gyvenimo būdą, yra apie bangą ir vandenyną. Kažkas panašaus į - jei #banga turėtų smegenis, ji save galėtų suvokti kaip unikalią, atskirą ir tam tikra prasme būtų tiesa. Pasižiūrėję į vandenyno nuotrauką ir įsižiūrėję į bangas – nerasime nei vienos tokios pačios. Tačiau banga neatsiejama nuo vandenyno – jie vienas kito dalis. Tam tikra prasme banga yra #vandenynas. Banga talpina savyje galingą vandenyno jėgą, bet viena atskirta niekur nenueis, nes vandenynas ir banga yra vienis.
Nuotraukoje - #mango,#pistaciniai,#goji uogų skanukai. 😍
Happy Valentines day! ❤️
One of the most beautiful #metaphors that I read about the #essence,#attitude,#lifestyle is about the #wave and the #ocean. Something like that - if the wave had a #brain, it could perceive itself as #unique, separate and in some sense it is true. When looking at the ocean picture and taking a good look at the #waves - we won't find any of the same. But the wave is inseparable from the ocean - they are part of each other. In a sense, the wave is the ocean. The wave contains a #powerful force of the ocean, but it would go nowhere once separated, because the ocean and the wave is one.
In the photo - mango, #pistachio and goji berries flavor skanukai. 😍
