Poetic Pieces From Tiki “Tanikka Paulk”
October 21, 2017

There it Goes and Goes

Is there a finish?

Not at all whomever thinks so is so wrong

We’re capable of so much


Not at all I’m seeking and I (Tanikka paulk)shall find

No matter how the targets are projected

There is joy in knowing that I’ve been even an opportunity to make differences

So I’m continuing on my journey and God and Jesus Christ continues to remain

No forsaking occurs God doesn’t forsake and neither does Jesus

Movement continues to occur despite the difficulties

I’m blessed even when I’m tested

The journey moves on and how grateful I am for being chosen


My Smile Isn’t Their Smile

Some may become dismayed when being challenged day after day

To think that there are some who live without a smile

To be able to lift my lips and feel joyfulness serves as blessings

Too many have tried to take my smile

Through solitude I’m continuing to glow

Where will the landing occur?

Perhaps none really knows

Soon enough there will be a destination they’ll see

My Heavenly Father remains with me!

The book isn’t complete there are words left to fill

Smiling is a great way to feel fulfilled

Trying to take my smile away will serve no purpose

Too elevated to look back

There is abundance awaiting and the smile continues to move along


The Miami Heated Weather

Doesn’t appear to be any breezes

Miami, Miami, Miami and the humidity

A breeze is welcomed

Yes indeed but even as the heat continues feeling blessed will continue as well

No need to be so focused on the humidity

There will be breezes perhaps soon there will be some rain

Coolness may come one may never know

Miami is humid indeed but there is some fun stuff for the tourist to see

No need to be riddled in sweat

The best is yet to come and some are waiting to see

Why do you think is worth watching a movie over and over again?

Most of you are fanatics of certain actors and actresses, you can’t miss every movie and be amazed whatever the roles portrayed in it. I am one of you who love watching the different type of films. For some reason, I love watching true-to-life stories that can be inspiring for me and to be inspired to be like them in the future. Some people find interesting in film adaptation from novel books. This is how we can find ways to escape from the reality of life. Whenever feeling in despair or in a depresses state, we tend to watch different types of film genres.

For some people, they give time to watch films on weekends. Weekends are the only time for them to have a movie marathon. It can be more inspiring to watch these films with the family, either at home or in the theater. The fun moment of preparing some snacks and drinks some beverages. At some point, watching it over and over again showed that the films had captured the inner souls of the individuals.

Happy endings are not always happened in movies. We should explore the possible endings in despair, loss of someone, traumatic, etc. It will practice the gifted possessions that we have, the emotions. After watching certain movies, it gives us the benefit of the doubt and be a thinker what if the ending story should be in our own preferences. The movie can be relatable for us to know what should be the ending of the story.

The milestone of our life vary from one person to another, the movie can cover the real situation of life in this world. It wasn’t perfect but we can still able to change its course. There are so many patterns to take life as light as possible. We are still the controller of our life and never be controlled by anyone. Movies are the gateway to know what we wanted in our life.

Stop limiting belief and just start to write!
April 15, 2017

I received the newsletter from Ruth Soukup from Living Well Spending Less this morning. In the newsletter, she mentioned a friend who would like to grow his business and focus on his blog, but some major childhood insecurities held him back when he thought about writing. Her advice to her friend is to just WRITE as the best way to become a better writer is to write. She also suggested a challenge for her friend to spend the first hour of every day to just write, and not to stop until he has at least 500 words. There should not be any editing or judging, but just writing every day. Her friend did that and told him it was a good challenge, and he is less afraid of writing every day since he started the challenge.


It is an inspiring story. There are many times we have one of these limiting beliefs. Ruth stated a limiting belief is a thought or belief we have about ourselves that holds us back from achieving our full potential. These beliefs might not be true, but they are really holding us back from getting where we want to be.


I watched a webinar by Michael Hyatt yesterday which is about writing a book. He also mentioned there are restrictions that hold us back from achieving what we want, for example publishing a book. These restrictions include fear, uncertainty and doubt. To overcome these restrictions, we just need to start, focus and finish it. Yes, if we do not start writing, we always have the fear as we do not know whether we can really write. If we do not start writing, the fear will definitely become real, as we are not writing at all. If we are uncertain about the path, we should just focus on the direction we want to move forward, and just walk towards it. We will get to know better and clearly once we get down to the path. We should just keep writing and finish it so we will not have any doubt on ourselves.


I do not write much at LiteracyBase because of the word requirements. I do not always have much time to focus on writing without any distraction from my kids and I am not sure if I can reach at least 300 words in a short time, hence I usually do not start writing. But there are many times once I start writing, ideas just keep flowing in and I can just hear the typing sound from the keyboard. Michael Hyatt also said that inspiration does not show up until you do. I agree with that, and there are many times I can hit 500 words in my post without struggling. Without starting, I always worry I might not even reach 300 words.


So, I think it is always good to stop this kind of unhealthy limiting beliefs, and just set the goal or vision, plan for it, start moving forward and focus on it until it is finished. I believe the more we practice, the better we will be, and we should not worry about being perfect too.

How to keep yourself inspired and keep writing
April 7, 2017

How to keep yourself inspired and keep writing even if you don’t feel like it?
My answer is very simple and I think that any person can follow it. During the previous months so many things happened to me that I can’t stop talking about them. I have so many things accumulated under my skin and they are burning to come out. Some of the them will blossom into the beautiful flowers and some will erupt out like ugly ulcers. I have lots of ugly ulcers because nothing good happened to me during these last months.

Many people proved me nothing new; I already knew what kind of the devilish people they are, but others surprised me by being cold, intolerant and needy. I never expected my cousins to be so selfish.

We grew together and as young get along perfect, but in adult age suddenly their money and their life worth more than mine. It is not only that my career was doomed as unworthy and ridiculous but also the essence of my being – ‘but you are female, you have to…’

I learned one important lesson this winter – the only thing I really have to, is to die. everything else is up to me. My life, my family, my choice.
Also, when I mentioned my choice they instantly thought I was talking about the abortion – then I had to correct them – my choice is that I don’t do other ‘male’s job’.
Straight frank just like that!

It was my cousin who was a happy recipient of that saying. And I am not sorry. All that say-say but when somebody needs to be a hero they always push a woman to do what is obviously a man’s job.

How can I push around half mobile person when I am almost three times less his size?

They really should do that, but obviously, as a day – his sons are petty cowards.

That’s how you write inspired!
Accumulate a lot of bile!

Harmony between desires, dreams and the real actions is very important.
March 29, 2017

Inspire to live can even a banal Hollywood movie with a happy ending. To encourage finally catch up can clear sky and sunshine. To help find the motivation really can several minutes video on the Internet. It is just small details, because everyone interprets them differently. Someone finds himself in the beautiful end of the film, for someone sunshine is finally founded clarity. The different interpretations, different reaction leads to different states.  For some people the day brightens unexpected call from an old friend, another man maybe requires much more. Or, come in, remember the past, you are walking the paths ten years ago and smiling, because you have forgotten everything that happened wrong at that moment and remember only the good.

We are much inclined to idealize the past. A little idealization would be quite well to apply in the present. I’m not talking about the rose-tinted glasses, just a little bit of evaluation of goodness, accepting more complex things. Understanding that there can be all kind of things and the beautiful things should be highly evaluated. And try to see, of course, that you should have what to evaluate. It is because we can perceive present time very differently. Even the same disasters may be perceived very differently. One man after lost something very important starts panic, infinite sadness and apathy. Other one can accept it as a challenge to hunt for something better, testing his strength and even feel peculiar pleasure.

I admire such people. Because time is running out very quickly, day after day, one more day, and behold, a few years have passed. It is running magically fast because everything is repeated. Well, work, home, sleep, studies, home, you know it.

Everything settles in the same pattern in our memory. And if you involve yourself in something more diversified, which, according to the memory, it is worth remembering, the image becomes more colorful. And then you remember something more than work and education. And you start to feel better. Because you discover something new, because empathize to those activities, forgetting everything around, and you see how much you can do, how colorful is the world, if only you cross the threshold. And it happens that you forget it all, preserve inside, thinking that behind the window – nothing new, while outside the window – the whole world, which, of course, is within you also. Because if is an action, there is a rebound also, but sometimes we forget it.

Sometimes tiny little thing can go back as divine beauty, and vice versa, prudence might turn against us. As a result, the harmony between the desires, dreams, aspirations and the real action is so important. The inner peace, feeling, silent voice, says that everything is just fine. It is important to do what you desire. And it is important to do what you damn afraid. Because attacking your fears comes to benefits. The love for your work comes to benefits.

Each day placing the only brick honestly and carefully, in the long run you will have built a wonderful wall. Everyday planting one little flower, eventually you will have a fabulous garden. Every day, trying for yourself and those you love, you will produce the great happiness. Slowly, but confident.

Activities that most inspire and give a joy.
March 29, 2017

I do not know whether it can be called action, but I am inspired by the presence of the here and now. Awareness when just I am. I am at this very moment. The moment appears natural joy in everything, absolutely everything that is going on. I am glad to realizing my potential in the business, serving people, helping people. I am happy sipping tea with friends; I am happy seeing nature, the sounds, I am happy to just breathe. I am happy and I am grateful even to those moments, which sometimes seem to be no pleasant, but it also passing away and they show me what I still do not accept. And when we accept everything, could there be a conflict? What remain are only the joy, gratitude and natural spontaneity.

The most attention, time and energy I devote to self-knowledge. I believe that one of the main questions to which a person has to answer for himself – who he is. And to answer it we need not theoretically, not from books, not from the workshops, but to experience it. This does not mean that now I should sit down and sit until I have responded to this question for myself. I believe that self-knowledge can take place at every moment, ranging from self-monitoring. And it does not matter whether you monitor yourself, your reactions and sensations being in nature, or at business meeting.

First of all, the work for me is self-realization, when you feel, what you want to do, and dive into it with all your heart. It is devotion, responsibility, professionalism, and of course relations with people, with partners and customers when you serve people in any relation. The most important in my job is inner passion, inner fire that wants to do, want to create, and you see that this makes sense. Absolute dedication to what you are doing and open and honest relationship with the team.

art fails and where to find them
March 28, 2017

I adore drawing and portraying and painting and every little thing about it. I generally have. However, that doesn’t imply that I’m great at it. Perhaps that is the issue with specialists, a large number of us are fussbudgets. We need to be better at it, before we even invest the measure of energy it takes to show signs of improvement. What’s more, when we don’t meet our models we get disappointed and debilitated. This transpires a ton, to be completely forthright. 90 of the time I get a pencil to draw a photo, I wind up loathing it. Since my mind needs it to be something it’s not exactly ready to deliver yet.

This transpired at the end of the day when I attempted to draw a picture of a network show character that I hold truly dear to my heart. That is the reason I truly needed to make something that I can be glad for, that I can flaunt, something that I would really need to demonstrate the performing artist without being humiliated. In any case, when I resulted in these present circumstances attitude I was at that point lost. I put such a great amount of weight on myself that It wound up noticeably incomprehensible for me to not be frustrated by the result. Craftsmanship is hard. Also, regardless of the possibility that a few drawings may seem as though they got jotted truly rapidly, once in a while with the pleasant subtitle “speedy portray” you think you need to deliver something extraordinary with no exertion in a truly short measure of time.

It may seem as though it all the time, however more often than not this is not the situation. Indeed, even these fast draws have been chipped away at a great deal, with a considerable measure of considering, eradicating and not being glad about it. As a fussbudget and as a craftsman, it is vital to recall that. You just observe the result, the culminated, last item yet you don’t see the procedure how it was made. That is the reason you ought to never come close your first draft or even second or third pr fourth draft to a last piece. A drawing does not look stunning when it is first being made.

I concede I battle with this a considerable measure. When I am just drawing the layout of a face and understand that it doesn’t care for the face I really need to draw I get so debilitated that I surrender, for the most part notwithstanding a ton of self-loathing and disillusionment towards myself. Which isn’t right. Next time I backpedal to drawing I have the sentiment my past “Disappointment” at the top of the priority list and just recall that it didn’t work last time. This isn’t a decent begin to start another drawing. In this way, next time, and you ought to do it as well in the event that you are additionally battling with this, attempt to begin with a clear personality. Try not to consider your past disappointments or your past encounters, simply attempt to be somebody you haven’t been before and make without meeting any desires. You make workmanship since you adore it and on the grounds that it’s fun and it ought to remain as such. So please never forget that. Have some good times!

Taj Mahal – the architectural inspiration to many
March 26, 2017

The great architectural marvel of Taj Mahal is among one of the world’s renowned structure, was built by Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan (reigned 1628–1658), to house the tomb of his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. This marvelous structure stands tall in Agra, along the banks of river Yamuna. Construction of the mausoleum was essentially completed in 1643 but work continued on other phases of the project for another 10 years. The Taj Mahal complex is believed to have been completed in its entirety in 1653 at a cost estimated at the time to be around 32 million rupees


However, some little known facts are as follows :

There’s a replica of this structure in Bangladesh, which is known as Taj Mahal of Bangladesh, built by Ahsanullah Moni, a wealthy Bangladeshi film-maker. Construction began in 2003, but Mr Moni says that he came up with the idea in 1980 when he first visited the real Taj in Agra, India. He said that his homage had been built because most people living in Bangladesh – where nearly half of the population exist below the poverty line – cannot afford to travel to India to see the real thing.


Faizul Hasan Qadri, a retired postmaster from Kaser Kalan village (around 50km from Bulandshahr in western Uttar Pradesh), from India, also started building a small replica of the original structure in his village to show his love for his beloved wife. The 80-year-old retired postmaster, who had exhausted all his savings in building a “mini” Taj Mahal in Bulandshahr in the memory of his late wife, has got financial aid from the Uttar Pradesh government in constructing the mausoleum, in which he wishes to be buried beside his woman. Qadri said that he has spent Rs 14 lakh on the building, including provident fund and gratuity. And now it has become a piece of attraction for the villagers in Uttar Pradesh.

drawing from a photo reference versus drawing from real life

Illustration of vintage style red pencils over rough background – Learning and academic concept

There’s nothing superior to anything a debilitated beat and some awesome guitar riffs. Music makes you cry, makes you snicker and makes you move in your clothing at 3 am. Be that as it may, it can accomplish more than simply make you can rest easy. There’s a reason Plato once said music offers soul to the universe, wings to the twist, flight to the creative ability, and appeal and jollity to life and to everything.

Music can empower the mind in ways that we can’t envision and impacts us in regular assignments, without us understanding it. Your present state of mind might just be because of the melody you just tuned in to. While hearing music the larger part of your cerebrum is dynamic, which makes you think speedier, better and you’re ready to expand your creative ability.

Before we jump into this, let me say the most critical thing: Listen to music you get a kick out of the chance to take advantage of your inventiveness. Ought to be self-evident, I know. Be that as it may, tuning in to Mozart in case you’re more often than not into Metallica doesn’t make you more intelligent or more skilled or more innovative. You may feel like it however the result will at present be same, if not more terrible than without music by any means.

Instructions to utilize music for your imagination

Music builds your core interest. I’m certain many individuals concur with me on this, I think hush is a great deal more diverting than ambient sounds. It can convey you to a perspective that gives you a chance to suffocate in various universes, essentially by the song affecting your cerebrum. The shouting youngsters outside your window may make you feel happy and mindful of everything. In any case, the miserable hints of an Indie melody can make you have an inclination that you’re sorrowful. Discover music that matches the state of mind of the workmanship you need to deliver it will fill in as the twist under your wings.

Saying temperament: Music likewise lifts your mind-set. As a rule, on the off chance that you are excessively dismal, making it impossible to get that pencil, tuning in to your most loved music can have the greatest effect. Really, in the event that you are tragic, tuning in to a dismal melody makes you more joyful. Why that is nobody knows, however it works. Next time you feel discouraged, attempt it. It works for me! On the off chance that you are in an alright temperament however it could be better; don’t dither and put on those crazy tunes of Mika or the Chainsmokers. Your mind-set will increment 100%.

Regardless of on the off chance that you require a state of mind lift or not, music gives you feeling, regardless of what you’re searching for or in case you’re not searching for anything by any stretch of the imagination. When I am attracting and I tune in to a tune, I cherish my work much more. Music gives your specialty soul, without you doing anything any other way. You can utilize the emotions music offers you to exchange that on paper.

In any case, it’s not quite recently the instruments or the voice or the tune. Definitely, let us not overlook the great, clever, grievous verses that can motivate you. Close your eyes, take a full breath, disregard the world and simply tune in to the verses. Attempt to consider stories that fit these verses. Give them a chance to move you into this world, however be a dynamic part in it. What is going on, what’s going on with the general population, what are they feeling. There are a thousand distinctive approaches to decipher one sentence. In the event that that is not moving, what is? Does it give you thoughts for your next painting, your next book or your next photo? I wager it does.

Utilize a similar music for similar activities. I have a review playlist. I just tune in to these melodies when I am examining. No special case. After only a couple times your mind will naturally get into study mode while tuning in to the melodies on there and it will be considerably less demanding to get yourself into the correct state of mind to do whatever your playlist is modified for. Vital: Use diverse playlists for various things, you would prefer not to tune in to your exercise melodies while attempting to nod off, isn’t that right? Obviously not! Your psyche will believe it’s an ideal opportunity to get up and do some crunches as opposed to closing down for the night!

The last point, however my most loved one is that you begin seeing live through an alternate perspecitve. Everyone has an alternate impression of life and the world we live in, by tuning in to other individuals’ music you begin seeing these things from their viewpoint and are affected by their lives and stories. That is the means by which you get the chance to see considerably more about the world, than you would have, quite recently remaining in your own shoes.

Is it accurate to say that you are prepared to fuel your imagination? Prepare your music and begin making, you will make something remarkable!
