Valentine's Day vs Independent

So yesterday was Valentine's day. Some of us may be singles, others have a date and some of us are attached/married. Today i to talk a little about being single and looking for a partner.

It's common for the singles, both guys and ladies to go for social event meant for the singles. And while we go to such event, we go there with certain expectations. The guy must be rich, handsome and young etc.. The ladies have good figure, long hair etc. While we have the ''ideal/perfect'' partner in mind, does he/she ever exists?

I'm sorry but No! Be it, in the past, present or future there will never be a perfect couple don't even say the perfect relationship. I speak from experience. I used to write down the criteria of my ideal partner. But guess what, she never exists. Now that i know she doesn't exists, am i still hanging on to my fantasy? No!

Rather, i trust Him to provide and bring the girl when the time is right. So what do i do in the meantime? I go and enrich and equip myself. I do not desperately go and ask around if there is any ladies that is willing to go out with me.

Here's the truth, tested and proven: Trust Him in all your ways. Commit your plans to Him. Jenny is the perfect example. She came from Him.

Our 1st anniversary

To her, i want to say:

There will never be another one like you. When i thought i will surely be single all my life, God allowed me to meet you. And though there was disagreements, silly arguments, i thank God we're still here and together. None of us are perfect. But it is through our imperfectness, that we know each other better. And for that, i am grateful. Surely there are many good and pretty girls out there, i thank God for knowing Jenny. I guess there wouldn't be another one like you. This journey hasn't been easy but nonetheless, we're still here and will surely be.

Never Lose Heart

So 2015 is over and 2016 has just begun.

I'm not sure about you but 2015 has been a series of good and bad. And as the new year has began, as always, we have this practice of setting goals. It's something we do almost every beginning of the year. But while we're busy setting goals for this year, let us think: What if we failed to see the goals achieved? What is our respond when things didn't go as what we planned?

Friends, no matter what has happened in 2015, or what may be installed for 2016, never lose heart. Perhaps 2015 may not be a good or the best year for you, do not lose heart. I've been thinking and to a certain degree i do agree,'' things will always get better.'' That phase has been in my head for the last few weeks.

2016. Some of us may have great plans for 2016. We set goals to do this and that. We want to travel, get attached etc.. But while we're excited to see the plans come true, never lose your heart over these.

''Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that's where life starts.''

Dear Mockers

I just wanna make sure that i'm not not against anyone but rather concerned about what was spoken concerning me.

Dear Mockers or whatever you are. Do not think that being the eldest among the cousins gives you the right to make sarcastic comments.  Since you're eldest among us, shouldn't you be more mature in the words you speak? Moreover, you're also a mother of two. What will your boys think if they are aware of this?

Sure you can say whatever you like, but be reminded, that words are like labels. They stick on people. If you don't like to receive the same treatment, den be considerate and careful with your words.

Our 6th month

It's been quiet here, isn't it? Well guess, what? Our 6th month also happen to be our country's Golden Jubilee weekend. Yeah!! So together with some of our friends, we celebrated! But that's not the thing.

Few weeks before we approached our 6th month, one of our friend sent her a sacastic comment which read, ''Foster is your everything............''

Let's get this straight: I am, will not and can't be her everything.

Defination of everything seems very vague.

Just because you don't have dinner with her, can't meet her, then i am her everything.

Just so you know, i am not the air she breathe, her employer who pays her salary etc.

Please be tactful with your words. Your words do carry weight. Words are like labels.

Whether you know it or not, comments, opinions, remarks sticks.

What does it takes?

Most humans are like me. We have dreams, things we always wanted to do, see and explore etc. Some of us want to be rich, wealthy, living in a big house, have a great number of friends etc. Yes it is said that dreams make humans great. But to have these require you to work hard for it.

1. Thomas Edison created the first light bulb. It was said that he tried more than 300 times to see the first light in a bulb.

2. Steve Jobs started Apple Inc, which is currently the No.1 multinational technology company. He did not finished his high school and was a drop out. But that didn't stop him from pursueing his dream.

3. Roger Bannister, who ran the first sub-four-minute mile. 

These guys and many more did what the world said it was impossible. 

Recently, i came to know someone who started saving up as he is struggling in his finances. So he started making plans, setting budgets on his daily meals. But as time goes by, he couldn't keep to his budget as he was attracted to other tibits, snacks before/after lunch.

For us to be successful,  we need the following:

1. Discipline
Keep to your budget. Only you can limit how you want to spent.

2. Consistancy
Be consistant to the amount you have budgetted.

3. Focus
Know your goals and dreams.

Temptations will always be there to tempt you, make your heart soft. But your will is stronger that all these!
