Taking a chance in life is one of the most difficult things a person can do. Humans are genetically wired to crave and pursue comfort in every aspect of life. Any deviation from this course and we become paranoid and somewhat out of balance. Life, and the work it demands to meet all of our basic needs, is all about balance. Our pursuit of happiness and self-actualization is no different. The good news is that balance looks different to everyone and no one person is right in what appears to appeal to them. However, a person’s definition of balance is a mix of their innate wants and basic needs and their personal opinions about how those things relate to the world around them, otherwise, there is a displacement which puts a person lopsided. … More The thought of “second marriage”
The world we will wake up to on January 1, 2018 won’t be the same world we entered exactly one year ago. You never really notice how the atmosphere has shifted until you look back over the past 365 days and realize that considering the events of the year that’s passed, there is simply no way we can move forward without feeling changed in one way or another. Except you’ve been in a comma for the past 365 days, events that have happened are bound to have changed us in one way or another. Unfortunately too, 2017 introduced the world to a lot of heartache, natural disasters, and man-made tragedy across board. But my hope is that we can all find solace in a clean slate and learn from our misfortunes moving forward. … More Towards a better New Year
It’s not only sad but it is heart-piercing when I read different relationship issues, marriage issues on social media and you find more women than men seeking advice, ranting and begging for solutions on how to get it together again, with or without their spouses.
A pastor once prayed for the happiness of a troubled couple. He says whether it be together or in separation, happiness and peace of mind is the most important thing. Now this is a contradictory prayer you’ll often hear from pastors or Christians. As much as we want to play holy and be without blame, in most cases, we often neglect the truth of the issue to address it accordingly. No two marriages are the same, therefore, no one solution will apply to both. If only the church will be as realistic as the issues most marriages face, I believe there won’t be so much confused people on social media seeking advice from total strangers and hoping to get genuine answers. … More When does a marital issue become a public affair?
People have often say to me, ‘live a little’.
I know I can be stiff and I can be hard on myself. Don’t get me wrong, I know what fun is. It’s just that I either don’t have the strength or stamina for it or I just come up with excuses why I shouldn’t or can’t make out time for it.
I have a lot ideas and dreams that I juggle on my mind over and over but I also can’t shake off the fact that I need a considerable amount of time to put my ideas into action. Other important things take up my time as well but at the end of the day, those things I’m not doing are the things that hunt me and say to me, ‘you could have done better today’ when I lay my head on my bed.
Different people are aiming for different things especially because it’s a new year. Yet there a many people out there too who we can connect with or collaborate with and form great alliances to achieve great goals this year. But more importantly, while we seek to achieve dreams and attain our goals, let’s not forget what is most important. A life well spent. … More Break the rules; live a little. No, live a lot. It’s just one life to live
