Christmas

Christmas is finally here but here’s a quick reminder. Christmas is not all about the gifts

Christmas is not all about the beautifully decorated trees

It’s not all about sending Christmas cards

It’s not about Santa either

It’s definitely important to spend time with friends and family but that’s not all Christmas is about.

This season is all about the gift of Jesus. God loved us immensely that he gifted us with his son. Amidst the celebrations, the parties and the hang outs don’t let yourself be carried away with the euphoria of the season that you forget the reason behind it. Remember to show some love to the people around you. While you’re enjoying your salads, chicken and drinks remember that there are people who can’t afford a meal not to talk of a feast or an exotic dinner. Remember to put a smile on somebody’s face

Remember to help someone in need and gift something to someone that really needs it because that is what Christmas is about- showing the love of Christ.

Merry Christmas to y’all my WordPress family. I really appreciate you all and I wish we’ll all see many more Christmases with the ones we love. Once again a very merry Christmas to you and a prosperous 2020 in advance.

BENEATH

Beneath the tears lies the sorrow

Beneath the smile lies the happiness

Beneath the laughter lies the joy

Beneath the frown lies the sadness

Beneath the groan lies the anguish

Beneath the action lies the purpose

Beneath the ashes lies the beauty

Don’t judge based on the appearance

Try to find out what lies beneath

Beneath the bridge

The light is shining bright

But all I see is darkness

It’s way past midnight

But the sun is still in harness

I wish for an amnesia

To erase all the painful memories

Or else I’ll become crazier

And my brain would fold up in a crease

Together we walked across the bridge

But all of a sudden she lost her grip

And fell into the water under the bridge

That ended our trip

I let out the loudest scream

But my lips did not part

I wept to the brim

Yet my eyes were still as dry as tart

I stared at the deep waters in disbelief

Unable to utter a thing

I could never feel relief

Because the sky was crying

Life would never be the same as of old

Without her a lot of things would change

I imagine how she lay cold

Beneath the ocean waters range

She was my sister and my friend

My companion and now I’m all alone

She’s gone and none my heart can mend

She; my precious IPhone

The Crave For Beauty In The Society

Beauty they say lies in the eyes of the beholder and most people would do anything just to be tagged beautiful, pretty or stunning. Beauty is undoubtedly craved by a lot of people and most especially but not exclusively the females. This crave would push a lot of people to do the extraordinary and unthinkable. Some even go up to the extent of getting plastic surgeries done which are in most cases hazardous to the health just to appear appealing.

Beauty is much more than the pretty face, the nice physique and the flawless skin. Beauty is an inward thing and more than craving the outward look we should crave having a beautiful soul and heart because that kind of beauty radiates from the inside.

In conclusion, I would like to add that humans are insatiable and no natter what you do or how you look, you can never appear gorgeous to everyone you come across. That’s because people will always find fault in your appearance and I think it’s high time people started appreciating how they look because every single person is amazingly beautiful and unique in their own way.

The Past: Your Driving Force Or Your Setback

When I was much younger, I had lots of dreams and fantasies about life but later on, I realized that life isn’t all sweet and rosy. I’ve learnt that you have to work hard to get what you want and nothing good comes easy. I’ve made lots of mistakes. I’ve taken steps I wish for as long as I live I’ll be able to retrace and I’ve said things I wish I didn’t. I’ve taken actions I regret and I’ve done things I’m not proud of but I’ve realized that pondering and staring at the past would do me no good. Though the past remains unchangeable and the steps I took irretraceable, the future lies yet before me and it’s left for me to make the best out of it.

Yes I Am Changing………….

My thoughts exactly… You can’t spend all your life pleasing others and caring about what people are going to say. Life is short so you gotta live it for yourself too. Inasmuch as I love you, it’s me before you.

A BEAUTIFUL RESPONSE FROM SENIOR CITIZENS WHO KNOW HOW TO LIVE THEIR LIVES COURAGEOUSLY WITH A POSITIVE ATTITUDE, ‘YES, I AM CHANGING’:

YES, I AM CHANGING: After loving my parents, my siblings, my spouse, my children, my friends, now I have started loving myself. 

I am doing what makes me happy. After all I am responsible for my happiness and I owe it to me.

I have learnt to live each day as if it were the last, after all, it might be the last.

I have learnt that it is better to drop the ego than to break a relationship. After all, my ego will keep me aloof whereas with relationships I will never be alone.

I remain cool when someone plays dirty politics to outrun me in the rat race. After all, I am not a rat and neither am I in any race.

I am learning…

The Irony of Life

Age 10

You had a box of pizza

While I had a slice of bread

You laughed showing your naked gums

How could you think you’re better than me?

When you’re not better than me

Age 15

You came first in class

And I came last

You laughed showing your naked gums

What makes you think you’re better than me

When truly you’re not better than me

Age 20

You were studying in an institution to get your degree qualification

While I was learning a trade to acquire a skill

You laughed showing your naked gums

Why laugh and say you’re better than me?

When actually you’re not better than me

Age 25

You were dressed in your expensive clothes

And drove your expensive car

I was dressed in dirty rags

And walked under the scorching sun

You laughed showing your naked gums

Why think you’re better than me?

When really you’re not better than me

Age 30

Your degree was seized from you and now you roam the streets jobless

While I’m using my skill to earn a living

You walk by looking stresssed up in a worn out pair of clothes

While I drive my exquisite car

You steal a glance at me and think your eyes are deceiving you

Because you can’t seem to understand the irony

Five years ago, you drove and I walked

Five years later, I’m driving and you’re walking

You’re unable to laugh and show your naked gums

Because you’ve realized I was right all along

You’re not better than me

And now you understand why you’re not better than me
