Take Control of Your Happiness

The mistake many of us make is to expect someone to come into our lives and make us happy. The key to happiness is to realize that no owes us any obligation to make us happy. We must take control over our lives and do not rely too  heavily on someone else for happiness. Often after a breakup people hold on to the hurt and pain of the failed relationship. Unhappiness becomes a way of life and there is no moving forward.

We have to understand that people will disappoint us, they will betray and hurt us. But we must refuse to let them take our joy. Promise yourself that you will choose happiness in spite of situations that are beyond your control. Trust God and know that he will not allow the person who cause you pain to live happily ever after while you live in misery.

You know this brings to memory something which happened some years ago. There was this man who was with his girlfriend since they were back in high school. She bore him four children. He left her when their last child was about four months old and married another woman. He said she was making him not able to save any money. He kept making babies…what did he expect.

Any way he went on with his new life with the christian woman he had married taking better care of her two children than he was taking care of his own children. I guess happily ever after was all he saw on horizon. However it was not long after…maybe a year when he got in trouble at work  He got fired from his job and attempted suicide. My point is you cannot expect to live a happy life by causing pain to others. What you give is what you will eventually receive.  So Live, Love, Forgive and be Happy.

Three Kernels of Corn

corn corn on the cob corn kernels

Three young men were once given three kernels of corn apiece by a wise old sage, who admonished them to go out into the world, and use the corn to bring themselves good fortune. The first young man put his three kernels of corn into a bowl of hot broth and ate them.

The second thought, I can do better than that, and he planted his three kernels of corn. Within a few months, he had three stalks of corn. He took the ears of corn from the stalks, boiled them, and had enough corn for three meals.

The third man said to himself, I can do better than that!
He also planted his three kernels of corn, but when his three stalks of corn produced, he stripped one of the stalks and replanted all of the seeds in it, gave the second stalk of corn to a sweet maiden, and ate the third.

His one full stalk’s worth of replanted corn kernels gave him 200 stalks of corn! And the kernels of these he continued to replant, setting aside only a bare minimum to eat. He eventually planted a hundred acres of corn. With his fortune, he not only won the hand of the sweet maiden but purchased the land owned by the sweet maiden’s father.
And he never hungered again.

Tension in Cleveland After Cop’s Acquittal

Emotions ran high in Cleveland after a judge found Officer Michael Brelo not guilty of voluntary manslaughter and felonious assault in the 2012 shooting deaths of unarmed Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams following a 22 mile car chase. Brelo and twelve other cops fired over 100 shots into the couple’s car after which Brelo got out of his car got in top of the  Williams car’s hood and fired about fifteen more shots.

Brelo’s acquittal is understandable, with so many cops firing and after so many bullets they might have already dead by the time he got on the hood. It is what Brelo told investigators that I find interesting. He reportedly said he thought he and his partner were in danger because he believed the couple in the car were shooting. He told investigators, and I quote “I’ve never been so afraid in my life. I thought my partner and I would be shot and thought we were going to be killed.”

This I find puzzling. You believe people inside a car who are armed and dangerous and are shooting at you and you climb unto the hood of the car ??  This defies all logic. He knew those people were unarmed.  Excessive use of force must stop.

Pastor’s Wife Defends Josh Duggar

A Texas pastor’s wife sparked controversy when she voiced her opinion that Josh Duggar who admitted to molesting five girls should be left alone to live his life.

Carrie Hurd said what Josh did, when she was a child it was called ‘playing doctor’.  She further suggested that the victims should also be held accountable.  Mrs. Hurd incidentally is the mother of eleven children.

A Thought For Today

A lovely little girl was holding two apples with both hands.

Her mum came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile: my sweetie, could you give your mum one of your two apples?

The girl looked up at her mum for some seconds, then she suddenly took a quick bite on one apple, and then quickly on the other.

The mum felt the smile on her face freeze. She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.

Then the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her mum,and said: mummy, here you are. This is the sweeter one.

No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgeable you think you are, always delay judgement.  Give others the privilege to explain themselves.   What you see may not be the reality. Never conclude for others.

Which is why we should never only focus on the surface and judge others without understanding them first.

Those who like to pay the bill, do so not because they are loaded but because they value friendship above money.

Those who take the initiative at work, do so not because they are stupid but because they understand the concept of responsibility.

Those who apologizes first after a fight, do so not because they are wrong but because they value the people around them.

Those who are willing to help you, do so not because they owe you any thing but because they see you as a true friend.

Those who often text you, do so not because they have nothing better to do but because you are in their heart.

One day, all of us will get  separated  from each other; we will miss our conversations of everything & nothing; the dreams that we had. Days will pass by, months, years, until this contact becomes rare… One day our children will see our pictures and ask ‘Who are these people?’ And we will smile with invisible tears  because a heart is touched with a strong word and you will say: ‘IT WAS THEM THAT I HAD THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE WITH’. Send this to all your friends that you will never forget. Put this on the whatsapp of those who made you smile in any type of way. It might surprise you but look at how many will be sent back. Thank you for making me smile for sometime in my life.  Just say thank you if you agree, you don’t have to send this back to me.

Virgina Cop Tase Man Having Medical Emergency

A police officers in Fredericksburg Virginia has resigned after an incident where he used taser and pepper spray on a man having a medical emergency.

Shawn Jurgens and two other officers responded to calls about a hit and run driver going in the wrong direction. The driver was 34-year-old David Washington who reportedly hit a jeep, a street sign and came to a stop in the middle of an intersection.

With guns drawn the officer shouted orders at the unresponsive man. Jurgens used taser and pepper spray on Washington. They pulled him from his vehicle and handcuffed him before realizing that he was ill. A very traumatic situation for Mr. Washington but on a brighter note he is alive…it could have ended worse.

The Duggar Scandal

The latest fallout in Reality TV comes in the wake of sexual molestation allegations against Josh Duggar of TLC hit Reality TV show 19 Kids and Counting. This happened before the family’s entry into reality TV in 2008. Chances are if TLC had gotten wind of this back then they would never have gotten the show in the first place.

I have never watched the show so I cant’t speak much about it. Too many people have gotten caught up in reality shows. Back when it started with Flava Flav and I Love New York it was entertaining and interesting but by the time it got around to Bret Michaels it was already loosing that reality feel. Truth is what you see is what they want you to see. People put reality TV stars on a pedestal, they can do no wrong and they in turn feel obliged to live up to that image. Subsequently unpleasant things are swept under the rug. I hope that those molested got counselling to help them live a positive and meaningful life.

Mother Shaming Daughter on Facebook

This video of a mother scolding her daughter went viral on Facebook. Some feel she should not have done this while other believe she did the right thing. The point this mother tried to emphasize is that her daughter is only thirteen years old and is posing online in lingerie as a nineteen year old. She wanted her Facebook friends especially the men to know she was thirteen.

This mother knows the danger that befalls many teenager girls. It is way serious than many people are aware. In Jamaica for instance seven teenage girls have been murdered since the start of 2015 some of whom were pregnant at the time of their death. Girls are getting killed to cover up pregnancies. This mother’s action may very well save her daughter from taking the wrong path.
