There is no reward for finishing life first. However, there are many rewards for living life well. Something wonderful happens every day if you pay attention. But if you are zipping along life at breakneck speeds, how will you notice it? Life is a journey. Like every journey, you are bound to experience various obstacles along your path. Will you give up on reaching your destination because of obstacles? You shouldn't. Instead, purpose to enjoy every minute of your journey thorugh life, obstacles and all. In short, life is do or die. Life is a journey that must be traveled no matter how bad the roads and accomodations are. Others may be there to go through your journey with you, but no one will be there to go through the journey for you. You must do it yourself. Lastly, remember that life is not a destination. It is a journey to be savored and enjoyed every second you are alive.
Just because Fate doesn’t deal you the right cards, it doesn?t mean you should give up. It just means you have to play the cards you get to their maximum potential - Les Brown
Fake friends are so easy to find and equally easy to loose. But real friends, those are the hardest to find and the hardest to lose. They are like precious jewellery. .... Fake is the new trend and some of my friends seem to be in style.
Why Focus? Because like Henry Ford said, "Obstacles are the frightful things you see when you shift your eyes from your goal..." Stay Focused.
.... Why? Because two WRONGS don't make a RIGHT.
Every so often we go through stuff in life, either knowingly or unknowingly, that affect our identity, bringing in lots of insecurity to us. Sometimes we might not even know about them but the moment we become aware of them, then it becomes a problem right there. Here below I have shared with you two sides of a story that you must have read severally before. Read them to the end and think about the lessons presented in them. ========================================================================================= 1 – Fable of the Eagle and the Chicken - Scenario One A baby eagle became orphaned when something happened to his parents. He glided down to the ground from his nest but was not yet able to fly. A man picked him up. The man took him to a farmer and said, “This is a special kind of barnyard chicken that will grow up big.” The farmer said, “Don’t look like no barnyard chicken to me.” “Oh yes, it is. You will be glad to own it.” The farmer took the baby eagle and placed it with... [Continue reading]
Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can't make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you'll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time. Telling someone that you love them but you do not show it through your actions and through your time, then those are very empty words. True and genuine love should not be just words and talk; true love shows itself in action, and for actions to happen there must be time. That is why LOVE is spelled "T-I-M-E.”

Each one of us can do a good deed, every day and everywhere. In hospitals in desperate need of volunteers, in homes for the elderly where our parents and grandparents are longing for a smile, a listening ear, in the street, in our workplaces and especially at home. Remember: "The evil you do remains with you: The good you do, comes back to you!"
Every so often we are faced with moments when we have to make very tough decisions in life. During such times, it is normal to feel lost, sometimes you feel confused, other times you feel heavily disoriented, other times you feel unusure, afraid, etc - amid other very many unsettling emotions. The one thing I have learnt is that if your "why" is solid enough, then the "how" will fall in place. One thing you need to know is that not everyone will agree with your decision and infact, the more you discuss the situation with people, the more they add to the unsettling emotions mentioned above. So, when you have to make a decision but fear engulfs you, remember this; it's easier to look back and say, "at least I tried and failed" than to say "I wish I had done that". You'll never know what you could have done until you attempt to do it.
Forgetting the past and moving on is easier said than done. Enough times I have struggled with many elements of my past but thankfully with prayer and trust in God, I have been able to let go. Maybe you are in such a place right now, a place of being unable to let go. If you can say this prayer and mean it, I believe you will get the strength to let go and let God. Heavenly Father, It is time for me to forget the past, forget the mistakes and focus on what you are doing in my life today. I know you are doing a new thing. I know you are placing the right people in my life and removing the wrong ones. You are closing old doors and preparing me for new opportunities. The pruning process can be uncomfortable and painful but I know it is for my own good. I totally trust you. In Jesus' name, Amen. May God bless you and give you strength as you start creating a new past for yourself.
I think this image says it all and so I will not water down it's message by saying much. I'll only say this, if you spend time planning, then situations like this will be limited.
