Love yourself in your own skin

Image result for how to love yourself in your own skin
Love your body. Its the only one you've got. I've noticed that as women we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to look perfect. But what is perfection anyway? Perfection is you. Perfection is me. Perfection is that kind smile and caring heart. Perfection is subjective.

Don't let society or anybody put their standards of perfection on you. Find your happy,and glow in it.

You don't like trousers? Skirts do it for you? Then ditch trousers.You can't handle natural hair? Abeg get that relaxer and relax that hair mehn.

You prefer natural hair? Then go natural sistah!

Forget the need to be anything or anyone in particular and recognise the perfection in imperfection.

Don't date anyone who doesn't like your body..a partner who is constantly nitpicking at your

Weep Not For Apostle Suleman Or Fatoyinbo Or, Weep For The Church In Nigeria

The allegations of serial adultery swirling around Mr Suleman, a self-styled apostle, have provided much drama and comic relief in the recession-fuelled tension that has gripped our dear nation. It is important to note that, till date, the allegations are still unfolding. And until they are conclusively proven one way or the other, decency demands that Mr Suleman should be given the benefit of doubt – at least, to all reasonable extent.

But in the unfolding drama, the joke is not on Mr Suleman. The REAL JOKE is on the entire

SLAP YOURSELF: So, Tonto Dikeh invested all that money, time and energy to make us believe she had...



Piece written by Ima Obong Uboh. Read and let's know if you agree with her: 
SLAP YOUR SELF! 
So, Tonto Dikeh invested all that money, time and energy to make us believe she had the best husband and life?  
The luxury cars, jewelries, vacation, birthday parties and clothes.  
Only to tell us they were all lies? That he never bought her anything, that she was just putting up a show to upgrade him? 

I can't stop imagining how many people felt less of themselves watching the euphoria. How many marriages and relationships were wrecked because, some of us got mad that our partners were not doing enough. If you were one of them, take a minute and SLAP YOUR SELF! 
Some girl you know, just had a flamboyant wedding and while she is feeling miserable that it was all her money, with little or no support from her husband, you're also feeling miserable because your wedding was nothing compared to

Thin Tall Tony The Traitor? This is how I feel as a woman and wife #BBNaija

Image result for thintalltony

Thinking about other Seasons of Big Brother. I remember vividly, that Big Brother Africa Season that shook the whole of Africa. "The Richiana" Season. We couldn't stop watching because everyone was anticipating, waiting to be the first to catch that moment when Richard and Tatiana would kiss on live TV. The day Richard won a task and chose Tatiana as the housemate to spend the night with at the Pent house, emotions raged high, Africa stayed awake the whole night to see if they'd be strong enough to resist the temptation and they did. The final day came, Who won all that money? Richard did.
 Africa fell in love with Richard and tatiana until the last day when Richard's wife appeared on stage dancing, celebrating her husband's win, walking majestically to take her darling husband home with their money. 

Thin Tall Tony is a strong contestant just like Richard. However, NOT as strong  because Tatiana knew that Richard was married, he told her about his family back home. Knowing his marital status actually helped her restrain herself from all that. Even though on the first day they clicked while discussing in the garden, he had bared his mind to a very understanding Tatiana and actually confessed to her that no one ever listened to him the way Tatiana did.  Moving forward, he let all the housemates know that he is a married man and that helped Tatiana to be strong and not fall too deep. Honestly people, Richard wore his wedding band while at Big Brother's house. He never took off his ring!

For our own Naija Thin Tall Tony in Big Brother Naija house, he just continues to drag the Intelligent Bisola along with lies. Honestly, having watched Bisola this past four weeks, she is very smart and nothing would have made her suck a married man's HOTDOG on National TV unless on a movie set. She is falling for Tony, perhaps hoping that the feeling is mutual, maybe, looking forward to a relationship outside the house, unaware that she is hurting herself, her votes, Tony's family and the whole of Africa. I pray Thin Tall Tony doesn't drag her out of The Big Brother House because she is doing great aside that relationship with him.

Oh, yes! We know his wife permitted him to go play for 25 Million Naira. We do not know if

What it means when YOU are being taken for granted

Image result for what does it means to be taken for granted

When you are taken for granted, it means your value is being underestimated. You are expected to always be available, to serve without needing a 'thank you', an appreciation. In short you are being taken for granted when people or someone expects you to serve without needing recognition/acknowledgement. When try as you may, give until you have nothing more to give yet, you are seen as ''after-all you are doing what you should be doing" You go all out of your way to render some services yet that recognition is not given you and you are wondering why? Just know that YOU ARE BEING TAKEN FOR GRANTED.  Your value is not appreciated or, you are not even valued by whoever it is you are serving.

To be honest, so many people feel they are being taken for granted but are not really sure. Now, here are signs to prove that you are truly not valued either by an individual; husband, wife, In-laws, friends, family and the list goes on.


HOW TO KNOW IF YOU ARE BEING TAKEN FOR GRANTED...

Lagos Boy posts a woman's very private parts on social media



Be careful! When you give a man everything like this to keep in his phone, better remain his slave for life oh, the day you hurt him, you never know how bitter the revenge will taste. Those nudes you take today may become your downfall tomorrow. Things may not always be like this. The tune might change tomorrow and you cannot take back those nudes. See this one, even opening for the boy to grab her intestines. Where is the sense in this? If any lady thinks that giving a man your nudes will prevent him from cheating on you, SORRY DEAR. The 'highs' from your nudes will soon fade and he will look for fresh ones to obssess on.

Young ladies ...receive brain, receive sense, receive understanding, receive discernment, receive extra perceptive sense, receive God IJN. Amen. I was about to say that this boy deserves an arrest but on a second thought, she gave him the power to do this to her. She handed over EVERYTHING including the two holes (A "blank check") to him to do as he wishes and the scripture reads   " woe to them that put their trust in man, trusting him to keep their vagina safe in his phone (Not even a husband sef). Lady, you did this to yourself, when you come back again if there is anything like reincarnation, do not let anyone take a photo of your wide open veejayjay and nyash hole like that. Nonesense girl

XRAY DIAGNOSIS AND WHAT HAPPENED AFTER

Image result for african american old woman coughing

A Facebooker shared this wonderful testimony. Read below:
My grandmother once had persistent cough and wheezing for around 4-5 months. I put her on medication but the condition persisted. I got her blood tests done and changed the medicines, but there wasn’t any improvement. The x-ray of her chest didn’t reveal any problems with her lungs or bronchial system. She and others at home were disturbed by the constant hacking cough and I was in a quandary.
We were praying about the matter regularly, but a healing didn’t come soon. Then one night the Lord showed me a dream. In the dream, I am examining my grandmother’s x-ray and this x-ray is different from the x-ray taken in the hospital. While examining the x-ray, certain parts of the lungs are focused upon and I can clearly visualize worms in the lungs. That was all I saw in the dream.
When I woke up, I realized that I had missed the real cause of the cough. The Lord here was showing that the cough was “allergic” because of larvae of worms that had migrated to

NEVER FORGET THIS


Biology says that after sexual intercourse, about 200 to 300 million sperms are deposited by d man, they all begin to swim upwards within the tract to meet with the ovum. Of the over 200 million that are deposited, only 300 to 500 actually reach the site( others get tired on the way because it is not a small race). And of the 300 that manage to reach the ovum(egg), only one fertilizes the egg, and in this case the Winning One was YOU. Have u ever thought about this? You ran a race without your eyes and you won, you ran without education and you won, you ran without a certificate and you won, you ran without help.....and you won. What makes you

ACTIVATE YOUR MENTAL WASTE BASKET; YOU NEED IT



If you were to create a mental waste basket, what activities or items would you place in there? There are activities we are engaged in that need to be reduced. There are pieces of clothing you haven't touched in years, you don't really need them. You need a mental waste basket. When was the last time you said NO to an unimportant request? What fears, what reasons prevent you from saying NO?

Look around you, there are clutter, frivolous things that steal away valuable time. You spend precious hours cleaning, repairing or paying for things that in your overall scheme of life are not that important. Place them in your activated mental waste basket.

BE CAUTIOUS AROUND LOST AND FOUND FRIENDS

  

      Happy Sunday. "Please, permit me share this true life experience shared by one of my friends. May the Lord continue to help us and let's also continue to look out for one another.
Here goes his account:

"Good morning everyone... I want to narrate my ugly experience to serve as a lesson for all. Please take time and read.
   Sometime November 2015 at UNIPORT I met my childhood friend whom we went to secondary school together and never saw each other again not until we saw at UNIPORT. You know nah long time friend, we started exchanging pleasantries. He told me that he stays at Aluu with his wife and I told him I just moved in around Rumuigbo "NTA/Apara Link Road". We exchanged contact and he said of visiting me someday and we went our ways. Around February 2016 he called me asking for assistance that his wife gave birth but still in the hospital not yet discharged, I now said he should come to the house, which he did (he drove a car and packed somewhere

CHARACTER AND STANDING ON PRINCIPLE



My character is me. It is my personality.
"I've met leaders in the army who were very competent-but they didn't have character. And for every job they did well, they sought rewards in the form of promotions, in the form of awards and decorations, in the form of getting ahead at the expense of someone else, in the form of another piece of paper that awarded them another degree-a sure road to the top. You see, these were competent people, but they lacked character.
I've also met a lot of leaders who had superb character but who lacked competence. They weren't willing to pay the price of leadership, to go the extra mile because that's what it took to be a great leader.
And that's sort of what it's all about. To lead in the 21st Century, to take soldiers, sailors, airmen into battle-you will be required to have both character and competence." 
-GENERAL H. NORMAN SCHWARZKOPP
Nearly synonymous with integrity is character. Character is a reputation built over time, yet it can be lost in seconds... It is much easier kept than recovered... and the reputation of a thousand years ma be determined by the conduct of just one hour.

Standing on principle involveds holding firm to what you feel to be right. How firmly are your feet planted?  
In matters of principle, stand like a rock, in matters of taste, swim with the current.

SHOWING EMPATHY TO OTHERS



A class in music appreciation was asked the difference between listening and hearing. At first there was no response. Finally, a hand went up and a youngster offered this solution: Listening is wanting to hear. The golden rule of friendship is to listen to others as you would have them listen to you. There is no greater love than a sympathetic ear , and and some empathy. Listening is a rare happening among human beings especially in these days of gadgets and phone pressing. You cannot listen to the words another is speaking if you are preoccupied with your appearance or with impressing the other, or are trying to decide what you are going to say when the other person stops talking, or are debating about whether what is being said is true or relevant or agreeable. Such matters have their place, yes but only after listening to the word just as it is being said.

Real communication happens only when we feel safe with the other person.

The process may differ; same destination

Mathematical Differences and Lesson

2+5=7
6+1=7
3+4=7
7+0=7

8-1=7
11-4=7
15-8=7

21/3=7
70/10=7
7*1=7
What is my point??

There are so many ways of getting to your final destination.

God may not take you through the same way He took your mom, dad, friends or colleagues.

What matters is that He will take you to your destination if you don't give up.

At times, you get there by adding things and people in your life.

Other times you will get there by subtracting certain things and people from your life.

Other times, you may need the multiplying effect of seed, information and relationships...

Other times, division and separation

WE LIVE IN THIS BIG HOUSE BUT GOD IS ABSENT

MY HUSBAND, I HAVE BEEN UNFAITHFUL,
She joined her husband in the bedroom. Their children were asleep.
He was busy reading the newspaper.
She looked at him.
"My love, there's something I need to confess" she began to speak.
"What is it?" he asked without looking at her, his face still glued to the newspaper.
"I have been unfaithful" she said.
He looked at her with fiery eyes.
He slapped her.
For the first time in their marriage, he slapped her.
"How could you woman?! Seventeen years of marriage, four children and this is what you do to me? You cheat on me? Foolish? How can you stoop so low?" he shouted.
He got up from the bed. He started pacing as he continued shouting, "You are the one who always tells me to keep off women. Out of respect, I keep females at a distance and you on the other hand do this?"
He was just about to pounce on his wife and beat her. The sting of unfaithfulness enraged him.
A knock was heard on the door.

The time is now , we need a revival Lord

"At a time when the church has become a ground for entertainment, we need A revival.

At a time when a music  minister competes and compares himself with secular musician, we need a revival.

At a time when the altar of God is used for comedy, we need a revival.

At a time when a successful minister of the Gospel is measured by how rich he is and not how much impact he is making, we need a revival.

At a time, when passion for souls have been replaced with fashion parade in the church, we need a revival.

At a time when motivational speaking has replaced biblical preaching, we need a revival.
