Relationships

Who you fall in love with is destined by fate. While we can plan for most aspect of our lives, when it comes to love the best made plans can fall to pieces. Often emotions take over and you find you are no longer in control. The heart wants what the heart wants and sometimes the heart gets what the heart wants, and yet relationships fail.

Sometimes the excitement is all in the chase and once the prize is won the excitement diminishes and complacency sets in. People begin taking each other for granted, passions wains…. Often times relationships fail because people don’t take the time to try to make it work. Like everything else, in order to be a success, relationships take work.

Today’s Positive Quote

“Never be too quick to judge another person’s situation and never say ‘That could never happen to me.’ The road of life has many twists and turns and sometimes the most unexpected things happen. No one is immune to life’s problems so show empathy for others because you just never know when you might need theirs.”

Atrocities Against Women in India

One of latest gruesome story coming out of India is that of a twelve year old girl who was gang raped by an uncle and two of her brothers. According to reports she was taken to her uncle’s house where the rape occured. When she threatened to go to the police, she was reportedly strangled. She was then beheaded and her body was dumped in bushes. The uncle and one of her brothers have since been arrested.

The fact that a child was treated in this manner is mind boggling. To know that the people who perpetrated the act is her own family makes it even more despicable. When, if ever, will the abuse of women and the culture of rape in India stop. One has to wonder if the government is doing enough to protect women and girls. India has a terrible record of sex abuse against minors with over 36, 000 cases reported in 2016.

Tragedy in the Sky

Last Sunday an Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed near Addis Ababa killing all of the 157 people on board. They were only six minutes into the flight when the pilot reported problem with the plane and requested to return to the airport. Unfortunately they never made it back.

Since the accident some countries have joined a ban of the Boeing Max 8, among them Britain and Australia. My prayers go out to the families of the victims. May their souls Rest In Peace.

“Start each day on a positive note and try to remain motivated in-spite of all the negative things that may be happening around you. Remember that not everyone you encounter is going to leave you with a pleasant experience.  Remain focused on what it is that you seek to achieve and do not allow yourself to be distracted.”

Stay positive and things will fall into place!

Reading Challenge

I am now on to my third book as apart of my reading goals for this year. I am happy to say that I am on track despite having a busy schedule. The book I am currently reading is ‘THE BROKEN CIRCLE’ by Enjeela Ahmadi-Miller. I will write a review when I complete it.

Reading creates opportunities to gain knowledge.

Today’s Positive Quote

“Don’t dwell on the past, it is behind you. Don’t stay stuck focusing on the mistakes you have made. We have all made mistakes. Use them as stepping stones to learn and grow.  Today is an opportunity for a fresh start and another chance to get it right.”

Let go of yesterday. Tomorrow will be better!
