All things bright and beautiful all creatures great and small”. Have a great week. With all good wishes, Lol + hugs, Bright – okra eXpress
P.S: Make that move right now. Make a difference for yourself and others too! Flourish together. Perhaps you can consider spending your quality time doing amusing things or having fascinating discussions with others, rather than spending your quality time complaining about what you do not have. Work together with others to accomplish the same objectives and flourish together. Think togetherness. The truth is, tough times don't last but tough people do! And tough people practise self-control. It is a wonderful world. That's the long and short of it. Consider your challenges as positives then press head with the next best thing and translate your challenges into opportunities for yourself and others without looking back in anger. Keep cool, keep calm, remain well-composed and carry on with great ease and smiles. I am a great believer that "doing good is good for business". In this regard, be a Girl Guide - Be Prepared, to go out quite heartily to plough the fields, and scatter the good seed on the land. That's the long and short of it! Keep up the good work!. Remember, you are not beaten, unless you refuse to get up. You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Smile and remain in full bloom like a sunflower, pressing ahead together with others, letting your eyes look straight ahead, fixing your gaze directly up above the EARTH right up in the sky gazing your eyes with great ease at the green hill far away beside the city wall. Press ahead, let your light shine before others in such a way that they see your good work. Speak with wisdom. Never go on the defence. It is a sign of weakness, insecurity and lack of confidence. Make it your blue print to leave behind your positive footprint in all the noble things that you do for others. You do not demand respect, you earn respect. Respect is not something you can demand. You earn respect and you will need to prove your worth with ease. Adapt and embrace a positive mind set. It is certainly not the end of the world. We have only just begun. What a great cheer up! Always look on the bright side of life. All things bright and beautiful. All creatures great and small. Politely refrain from complaining about what you do not have. Instead, create what you want and be very thankful and grateful for what you already have. When you smile, others will smile too! Better-still, when you smile, you use less energy and facial muscle. When you feel cranky sing! When you sing you will never feel cranky! Remain pleasant and kind like the gracious and beautiful birds up in the sky. You probably do not realize that you already have all that you need and that is the key to life - The gift of life. The air that you breathe in and out without charge. Think happy thoughts – not fearful and, dreadful thoughts. There is nothing on EARTH to be fearful about! That is the long and short of it! Think others in all that you do and assess what impact you will have on others if you do this or if you do that. Remember, everything on EARTH is possible. The impossible takes a bit longer and that's the long and short of it. The equation is easy to figure out and it goes like this. Work together with others hand in hand to achieve the same objectives with great ease and fun too! The best thing in life is life. Life is the life saving anchor to life. Keep your spirit up at all times. Choose life. Life is part of living. Live your very best life worth living. okra eXpress

Quality is the key at okra eXpress. If you have learnt from our experience, then our past is a success. okra eXpress was officially launched in the Georgian Restaurant the home of a handsome grand white piano and chic pink chairs in Harrods, Knightsbridge, The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. At okra eXpress, we ensure that our choice of venues for the okra eXpress event have the appropriate cachet for the quality and brand values we wish to establish. The okra eXpress events are held in unique and handsome buildings with special architectural, historic and heritage interests in swanky London, including Portcullis House in Westminster . The Architect, Sir. Michael Hopkins, Hopkins Architects Partnership LLP, designed Portcullis Houuse together with the seven story high underground chamber of the new tube station. okra eXpress London events are also held at Asia House – the house with the Blue Plaque in Oxford Circus, Royal Overseas League in Green Park, Mayfair, and 9-10 Charlton House Terrace, Pall Mall, Piccadilly, the home of the former British Prime Minister, The now-deceased William Gladstone. Incidentally, all these prestigious venues have gentle stairs and step free access and are located at the heart of London which makes them particularly appropriate for running the okra eXpress events in line with quality and ease of travelling. Better-still the London buses integrate very well with the London Underground in these areas so one can get to the okra eXpress events venues with great ease even if it means walking briskly for up to six minutes from the nearest tube station.
