2020…the journey so far….

I can vividly remember in December 2019 when I and my friends were making our new year resolutions towards 2020..the anticipation and the joy in witnessing another new year….suddenly it didn’t turn out as we expected.

This is the reality of everyone in the world right now..the arrival of the Corona Virus pandemic which no one ever expected. It shook the world and still shaking the world till now…people getting infected…numerous deaths…hospitals getting choked up…honestly it’s really sad that this is going on but we just need to keep hope alive and our faith in God and also adhere to all instructions given by our health workers.

And to everyone who’s lost a loved one to the pandemic,may God strengthen and keep you during this hard times and please stay strong.

And to all our health professionals who sacrificed their time,sleep and everything else so as to save lives,thank you very much..God Almighty will reward each and everyone of you.

So everyone please maintain social distance, mask up everytime you step put of your houses,wash your hands and maintain a high level of cleanliness and hygiene and never lose your faith and hope…this is a phase that will surely pass over .

Stay safe. Be safe. We will win.♡

Should I stop?….

There are diverse kinds of people in the world…the good..bad…manipulators and the ungrateful.

I’ve always been someone who’s full of empathy..always going out of my way to please people and make every one happy..and doing the best to sustain friendships even if the other person isn’t putting an effort to keep the friendship. I do more for people than they do for me to the point that I always try to show everyone they can count on me for anything but what do I get in return?…betrayals…backstabbing..lies and deceit irrespective of how nice I’ve always been. I always love having people in my life and getting in touch with everyone of them…I love friendships.

Sometimes I wonder why all this keeps happening.. Did I make the wrong friends?..or was I not good enough for them ? Or was I not being nice enough? I’m always filled up with bothering questions like these and couldn’t get the answers. Gradually my circle of friends began to dwindle and drift away like a kite that a little boy is trying to hold on to but the wind keeps snatching it away from him.

I know I’m not a bad person,neither have I ever turned any one down but sometimes I’m always saddened by the way I get treated in return..but what can I do? People will always be people..some change and some don’t. When I realized how hurtful I keep getting, I gradually had to start letting go of fake friends and just had to let them be. It got to a point that once they got to know I’m letting go,they try to manipulate their way back into my life but hell NO!!…the door of my heart is closed to fake friends and their manipulative ways.

So right now I’m happy..I’ve learned to let go of some people even though it’s really hard to do. Now my circle of friends is really small even though I always love making friends but getting hurt and stepped on isn’t what I signed up for in friendships.

I’m just gonna keep being me..loving me…and achieving greatness. But the bad character of some friends still won’t give me a heart of stone..I’m still gonna keep loving and being nice to people from a distance and not within the confines of my heart anymore…except to only those that deserve to be in my heart.

If you want us to be friends…please leave a comment…send me a mail and I’ll be glad you did and will definitely get back to you ASAP.

If you’re going through the same phase above me..let’s talk more and learn from each other.

Thank you for taking time out to read…

God bless you.♡

Motivation for today


*Don’t complicate life. We won’t be here forever. Once this day is over, it’s gone forever. Your time is too valuable to waste on nonsense.*

*No matter what knocks you down in life, get back up and keep going.*

*Never give up. Great blessings are a result of great perseverance.*

*Talking about our problems is our greatest addiction. Break the habit.*
*Talk about your joys.*

*Good things come to those who believe, better things come to those who are patient, and the best things come to those who don’t give up.*

*Do not pray for an easy life; pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.*
*Disappointments were not meant to destroy you. They were meant to strengthen you & give you fortitude to accomplish your God-given destiny.*
*We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but of appreciating what we do have.*
*Your child will follow your example, not your advice.*
*One day, you’ll be just a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.*
*Associate yourself with people of good quality, for it is better to be alone than in bad company.*
*Don’t fear change. You may lose something good, but you may also gain something great.*
*When you love what you have, you have everything you need.*
*The greatest act of faith some days is to simply get up and face another day.*
*Never let the things you want make you forget the things you have. *GRATITUDE.*
*Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do, long after the mood you said it in has left you. *COMMITMENT*c
*When you choose to forgive those who have hurt you, you take away their power.*
*Patience is not the ability to wait, but how you act while you’re waiting.*
*Isn’t it ironic:*

*- We ignore the ones that adore us*

*- Adore the ones who ignore us*

*- Love the ones who hurt us*

*- Hurt the ones that love us*
*Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. Every story has an end, but in life every end is just a new beginning.*
*You were born to win, although to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, & expect to win.*
*Every day is a NEW beginning, take a deep breath and START AGAIN.*
*You are loved.*

*You are wonderfully made.*

*You are beautiful.*

*You have purpose.*

*You are a masterpiece.*
*Don’t compare your progress with that of others. We all need our own time to travel our own distance.*
*Surround yourself only with people who are going to lift you higher.*
*Bad things happen:*

*- Every day.*

*-To everyone.*

*The difference is in how people deal with it.*
*When you make a commitment, you build hope. When you keep it, you build trust.*
*Two things define you: Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.*
*Being honest may not get you a lot of FRIENDS but it’ll always get you the RIGHT ONES.*
*Shoutout to everyone trying to get their life together. Working on yourself is the hardest part of life. Keep going, no matter where you are.*
*Be selective in your battles. Sometimes peace is better than being right.*
*Keep people in your life who truly love you, motivate you, and make you happy. If you know people who do none of these things, let them go.*
*Be happy not because everything is good, but because you can see the good side of everything. *OPTIMISM*
*NO ➔ Shortcuts*

*NO ➔ Quick fixes*

*NO ➔ Blaming others*

*NO ➔ I’ll do tomorrows*

*Surround yourself with positive people who will support you when it rains, not just when it shines.*
*Being defeated is often a temporary condition; giving up is what makes it permanent.*

emotional healing

I have come to realize that words like I LOVE YOU, I MISS YOU, I’M ALL YOURS… no longer mean a thing. Someone
can tell them to you and at the same time tells them to someone else h/she flirts with. Then you ask you yourself what is that person up to? Does he really mean it when he tells them to me or she means them when she tells them to other guys? What does he really want? Aren’t I enough
for her? Why can’t she decide on the right person to stick with? Why keeping around with all those people? How is it possible that person can miss and love 2, 3…people at the same time? Doesn’t he feel so bad when he’s wasting all his money on those girls? Taking them on dates, buying them
expensive things? Doesn’t she feel so bad when she’s serving her body to all those sex hungry guys? Doesn’t he fear to acquire viral diseases from those girls who sleep
around with other guys? Doesn’t she feel so bad sleeping in the same bed where other girls sleep in her absence?
My friends be careful with your hearts and bodies. Not everyone that tells you I love you, I miss you… that mean them. Some say them with different intentions and a few
mean them. Take your time to fully understand someone, know their goals in the relationship, don’t easily trust
someone and never quickly give in your all to someone.

a new me

I no longer have patience for certain things,not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a
world of opposites and that’s why I avoid
people with rigid and inflexible personalities.
In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and
betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience.

Thoughtful Thoughts

Ever wondered how the people in hell will be feeling right now? In a hot dark red fiery fire, crying,wailing, regretting, asking for just a chance to right their wrongs, asking for just “one” chance to accept Christ in their lives…hmmmm..
How many people in this world recgonize the “Grace” of God on their lives? Many people still think waking up alive each day is by their own doing, but they’re very wrong. This life is just one. No extra, no photocopy, no back-up. Its just one. And this life can go within a fraction of second,within the blinking of an eye.
Life is beautiful, as they say..but I say life is beautiful when you have Christ in you. Let’s all give our lives to Jesus today, let’s turn from our evil ways, let’s make this world a better place to live. Is Heaven worth missing over a little sin? How painful is it if hot water pours on your hand,you scream, you shout and you apply some medicine. But in hell, its worse than that. It keeps burning. No death,no help, no medicine,nno water. Its eternal.
Give your life to Jesus today, because the greatest mistake anyone can make in this life is to miss Heaven.
God bless you.

Let go of your hurt

Many of us have someone in our lives who has done some crazy, hurtful thing to us or, maybe even more importantly, to somebody that we love. In our minds we think, “I know the Christian thing to do is to forgive, so I will. I will forgive him as soon as he gives me an apology.”

The problem with that is, you’re still holding on to the hurt. Truth is, that person may never ask you for forgiveness. He may never say he’s sorry, because he doesn’t get it, or she may not even realize what she’s done. So you end up stewing over something that the other person has long ago forgotten. And it’s eating you up inside!

Never hold on to a hurt, because resentment tears you up. Resentment is like drinking poison and hoping it’s going to kill someone else. It doesn’t work. You have to decide that, before anything else happens, you are going to forgive that person.

Jesus said this even in the most extreme of circumstances, as he’s hanging on the cross: “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23:34a NIV).

So what do you do? When you struggle with forgiving, remember the great gift of God’s forgiveness.

Remember a verse like Colossians 3:13: “Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others” (NLT). It’s not a bad one to memorize and carry with you throughout the day, because you’re going to have plenty of chances to use it.

That phrase “make allowance” is the Greek word that means “to bear with, to endure, to be tolerant.” Basically it means to cut people some slack. Jesus said, “Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy” (Matthew 5:7 NIV).

I want God’s blessing in my life and your life. One of the ways you receive that is by being merciful.
