Something Went Wrong…

It’s unbelievable today is Friday, everything I did yesterday “Wednesday” was supposed to be done today “Thursday” This week has been dramatic for me. Somehow I  mixed up the days and got it all f… ing wrong.

How did I discover? I was writing a post and struggling to schedule for publishing, then I realized my mistake…ouch…I checked my calenders on the laptop, iPad and everything I could lay my hands on and I’m trying to figure out what went amiss, like the way it happens in the movies where you wake up on another planet or in the future.

Obviously, I haven’t been using the calendar nor paying attention; I have been applying dates without knowing which day it is.

Has this ever happened to anyone? Because it really got me worried. I’m trying to figure out what took place at each time of the week…

My First Ebook

Over the years I’ve had a yearning to write and publish, so I went ahead and started out by writing poems which got to the lime light on greeting cards, and birthday cards. I went further with my fierce yearning to write more, then I wrote two books, one completed and the other yet to be completed, and not published. Why stop? I felt I needed to start a blog…

I got distracted, I opened a website that wasted a lot of my time and stopped me from writing but got me running after adverts😯. Truth is that’s not my aim with my blog, if it comes, that’s fine but not threading on the block of distraction no more. That mistake though shed light on so many things I hadn’t seen before. It actually took me on a journey I never knew existed.

I decided to start afresh since I wasn’t breathing properly any longer.. I needed to write my heart out. First by shutting down the website👌 best decision I ever made in my life…no regrets at all😎, then I started blogging, and it’s been my joy, now I have a balanced life.

My debut Ebook which will be out soon is different from my other unpublished books, I will write more about it as time goes by. A lot of my friends wondered why the self help book first and not romance or something else, and I said this is what I want to get out there now because I have a longing for it, I need to get it out there for people that need it, it will touch lives, it will open sights, not the physical ones…you know what I mean I believe!

You all have a great day.

Handling Relationships With Different Religious Beliefs

I received an email from a lady who was in despair need of an answer to her confused state of mind, and I decided to post the content on my blog due to the sensitivity of it. This is one out of few mails I have received regarding religious beliefs, but this sounded peculiar to me which is why I decided to adjust a few of the texts and publish it. Here it goes:

I have known this guy for almost five months, he asked me out but I never took him seriously because of our religious differences. I am a christian and worship in a Pentecostal church, he is from a Muslim background and converted to Christianity but worships in the spiritualist church.

My fear is that I don’t understand their belief system as my parents are strict Pentecostals, no one I know in my has ever worshiped in such a church. I am also someone that believes a lot in God and want to make heaven, I just don’t understand the beliefs of his church. I like his personality and would love to have a relationship with him, he wants to be committed to me but I have not given him the opportunity because I don’t know where it would lead to. I discussed my fears with him and he made me understand that he won’t force me to attend his church even though at some point in time, he would love it if I do. He also said his church is a Christ believing church as well.

My question is what would my family say about this? What if it ends in marriage which I know I would love to happen? Where would our kids be baptized? I don’t know how my mind would start to operate. I need to know here different opinions while I also pray about this. Do I go further in dating him and getting to know him more or I should just forget about going into this affair with him even though I think about him almost every night and he seems to be the only man I have ever felt comfortable with in my life.

My own take on this is once I’m in love, the rest is history. We humans are different, and moreover it’s indeed sensitive that’s why Your kind comments and suggestions are welcome.

Thank you.

 

 

Boost Your Self Confidence

I have heard of several instances where self esteem is a problem for so many, it has degenerated to a level so high in the life of an individual that they feel they can’t overcome it. It advances with them to adulthood to the extent that some people find it so hard to perform well in interviews, it makes some people avoid socializing, some find it so difficult to do things that will make them happy-because they think they will never be approved of.

It usually arises from early growth, where parents are being overprotective of the child; criticism is also an element, when a child is being pushed to hard, it makes him loose confidence, parents who criticize their children over every little detail or failure are not only killing their confidence but are also crippling their spirit.We as humans will take cognisance of it and decide to use it then bullying sets in.This can only maim an individual development, self esteem, self knowledge and growth. We don’t want this to happen to any of our loved one…

If you grew up this way, it’s never too late to get out of that bondage, that is what is seems to be…Think positive, be optimistic, never allow criticism get to you. People can’t bring you down, they can only try. Don’t allow your feelings be toyed with, you are the determinant of how people treat you, live your heart into their hands, then you are already under their control for manipulation.

Enhancing your self esteem will pave way in facing challenges, it helps you to meet the right people in the right social gathering, It helps you in development of your writing skills and not giving up in what you believe in no matter how many times you fail at it. You want to blog? You want to publish a book? You want to sing? Why not just take one step of confidence today and try whatever is bugging your mind and giving you sleepless nights as long as its’ not a bad thing…

How do you build self confidence? Say to yourself everyday,”I will try harder today, I will be confident today.” Be bold, take informed risks, challenge yourself, love yourself, always remind yourself that you want to succeed at whatever you do but you can only achieve it through confidence. Don’t be too hard on yourself.

Today is Monday! Be confident in achieving success at whatever you will embark on.
