JUST FOR YOU

You know, it absolutely makes my day when I get online, post something, and it touches someone’s life. I do not know whose life it may necessarily touch, but I know that someone is affected by the things that I post sometimes, and it speaks to them in their hearts and their minds and inspired something new in them. That is what I want to do in this life. I want you to be inspired by the spirit in me to uplift the spirit in you, because as people that is what we ought to do. We need to lift each other up all the time. That is our God-given ability. Be blessed forever. You are loved. You are awesome. You are flawed, but there is absolutely nobody that could ever take your place in this world. Stay strong, and be blessed.

And here’s to the moments when we inspire people to be better than what they are now.

VICES

A vice is often defined as a weakness in character or a bad habit. That does not necessarily mean that our perception of it is entirely negative. In fact, many of us have found ourselves reveling in the thrill of doing stuff just because you can. Many can attest to the fact that there is nothing weak about the vice, because like a vise, it grips you totally and changes your entire perception.

So, what vices am I talking about today? Well, some of the commonest i.e. alcohol and drugs. Scientific name, substance abuse. You don’t have to be full-on addicted to be abusing chemicals. Yeah, that’s what all that stuff is: chemicals. I bet someone in your social circle thinks it’s super OK to “indulge”. Besides, they only drink on weekends, and at worst do not go beyond “a drink” on a weeknight. After all, home bars are meant for consumption and soothing of the stressed mind. And what is wrong with a little powdery de-stress? Surely they can afford it, and they aren’t harming anybody, right?

Those are the kind of excuses we make on a daily basis to cover up the fact that there is a hole in the careful mesh of our character. If you ever find yourself wanting to do something so much, and yet having slight discomfort, the need to defend thyself, the urge to hide, then red flag: vice alert.

Others include sex, gambling, food, spending money, name it.

So, I’m not here to tell you how to live your life, because I know nothing about it. But let’s agree about one thing: the excuses have to stop, because in the way of vices, they lead us onto paths that could make us get lost. What excuses, you ask?

1) I’m really stressed, and I need to relax

2) I can use my money for whatever I want

3) I won’t do it again after today

4) I’mjust indulging

5) I just want to have a good time

6) Etcetera (fill in your excuse)

You are stronger than that. Having a weakness in character implies that the rest of it is pretty solid. If a good amount is solid, don’t you think it is able to provide strength to the weak part to get stronger? Let’s look at the liver analogy.

When the liver is diseased, the sick part can be excised. The remaining piece works to compensate for the loss in tissue, but also there is regeneration to create a new functional section. In the end, it is like it was before, but different and new and better.

When we cut out our vices, we regenerate in those areas that once had weaknesses and become new people. It’s very true.

I pray that God will guide you to be the best you could be. One thing’s for certain: you have to drop the vices. Don’t expect to do it all in a day. Some things are just so hard to give up. However, make progress.

And cheers to the new you, chum!

A LOOK AT YOU

There will always be people to put you down, saying that you can’t do what you want to do. People that make you feel worthless. But you know what? If you allow that thinking to plague your mind, you will be paralyzed by it.

What do you believe about yourself?

#GoMe2018

REMINDER

You are beautiful.

You are awesome.

You are flawed,

But you are totally worth it.

WHAT IS MY TERRITORY?

Many a time, we look at ourselves and wonder: how can I make a change in the world? What do I need to do? Who is willing to listen to little old me? What is my territory?

You do not have to be some big shot person to make a difference. What is your territory, you ask? It is your circle of influence. It is your family, your friends, your neighbours, your work colleagues, your customers, yourself…it is the people you interface with on a regular basis. The people who tend to see you more. Those people that you feel tired of sometimes; they are your territory. They are your platform to be the change you want to see.

At church, there is a saying, “Church Begins On Monday; Sunday is Garage Time”. What this means is that church is not just about sitting in those squashed pews and listening to a sermon, and then your Christian duty for the week is done. When you are at church (the place), you are being equipped with stuff you need to get through life in the best possible way, just like a car in a garage. After Sunday service, that’s when true church is revealed. When you leave the ‘garage’, your journey after that is what the rest of the people see. So, being church to other people is being kind to them, encouraging someone, buying someone lunch, having integrity at your workplace, respecting your elders, playing with your kids, remembering birthdays, forgiveness, giving yourself a break once in a while, treating your juniors right, respecting authority, et cetera.

Basically, it is letting the people in your territory experience you and the love of God through you. It’s the small things and the big things. It’s being a fountain of blessing for those around you. It is very possible for God to create change in people’s lives through you, because you have to understand that you in your own strength can not change someone’s life just like that.

So, guys, you don’t have to be ĂĽber rich or anything. You just have to be willing to let God use you, and just watch how the people around you transform in the best ways. And hey, if you also happen to be ĂĽber rich, that’s part of your platform.

You can do great things for the people around you!

2018, AMIGOS!!!!!!

​Happy new year, people!!!!
I only say this now because I haven’t been up to writing for a while. My writing mojo had so aptly deserted me. Each time I’ve thought of writing something, my poor fingers have protested so adamantly. Watch TV instead, they screamed at me. Just do something else. You have nothing to say. 
But today, I decided to ignore all that and just come out and say hi. How did your year end? How is your new year going so far? Do you see growth in the next few months? Do you feel stagnated? Are you super hyped, or do you already feel discouraged? Perhaps you are just feeling a little “same” about everything. Like, what’s the deal with new years? Days are pretty much the same, right?
Well, no matter how you feel, welcome to 2018, a new block of days. Purpose to do something. Start a business, fall in love, change someone’s life. Perhaps not as dramatic as that. You could just change the way you think, or something as mundane as being nicer to your neighbour. You don’t have to take a thousand steps to be in a greater place. Sometimes, all you need to take is just one step.
I know nothing about your life. I know not what demons you have to fight daily. I don’t undestand your struggles like you do, or even your joys. But know this…you are going to make it through. You are going to be fine. Everyone may be soaring already, but take your time to crawl first. You are going to fly. Adversity may come, but that is not your permanent address. When I say something, I know that it shall be. Just watch. Let our hashtag for this year be #GoMe2018. Take your inventory now and make comparisons at the end of the year, and you will see. You can tots tell me when you notice the change in you come December! Celebrate all the small victories! Buy yourself icecream when you ace that test, and if that adds calories to you, you can totally just downplay the calories. Let no victory go unnoticed.
Also, God loves you. You may be tired of hearing it, but it’s true. God loves you, chum!

THE YOKE OF ROMANCE!

​Week 41
Romance novels, what do you want from us?! I get it: create characters to drool over and a love that makes us cry!
Check out some of these major protagonist characteristics:
1) Gorgeous hair (you can’t just have boring stuff happening on your head); the ladies have uncontrollable hair of weird colours!
2) Rock hard abs and pecs (ROCK-HARD- are you going to use them as weapons?! As if not looking like a medical muscular diagram never got anyone a girl!)
3) Billionaires (who are always men with twisted minds, thinking money and position gives them some sort of right to dominance)
4) Broken…yeah, they have a tragic backstory. I know, tragic stuff pulls at our heart strings and makes us feel connected, but trying to make me feel sorry for a twisted-minded person is a bit of a reach
5) Untold beauty- the women are gorgeous, blonde, curvy-and-so-feel-undesirable, not-billionaires, sheep-like, possibly rude in the name of independence
6) Litanies of sexual encounters in the strangest graphic detail…it’s like everyone is doing that now! Let’s not forget the kissing that makes it seem as though they are all trying to devour (literally) each other!
It’s true; everyone is entitled to their own opinion. You can definitely love these kinds of books if you want to. Go after the innocent Mills and Boon ones; or perhaps you are on the Fifty Shades train. 
However, remember when vampire novels all came and skewed our views on high school romance? Well, nowadays you have to blush through half the book at least, else it’s not romance. Few people can opt to choose the likes of Jane Eyre and Pride&Prejudice these days!
So for me, it’s overrated! And yes, this is just an opinion. You are entitled to yours! But to our esteemed writers with an interest in this genre, please give us new directional romances. I would be happy to read them, like, seriously. 
If I’ve offended you by attacking your sexy highlanders and rogues with less manners, forgive me. Happy reading to all of us!!!!!
2017, let’s do this!
