WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!!!!

I just had to start with that. I’ve been extremely overjoyed since Saturday and that’s why. 😀

Now to why we are here………..

Self-Love

Love yourself the way you want to be loved (the way you want someone else to love you).

Love your neighbour as you love yourself (this is the greatest commandment).

An insight into the later tells us that you can only love others (your neighbour) when you love yourself. How much love you can show to your neighbour (everyone around you) is a function of how much you love yourself. You cannot give what you do not have.

With regards to the former, you cannot truly understand what it means to be loved when you do not love yourself. I’ll explain; when you do not love yourself, you cannot see what others love in you. When you do not have love for yourself, you do not know what it is for someone to give/show you love. It’s like giving a million dollars to someone who has lived all their life in a forest and has no idea what a dollar bill looks like. Now, imagine a painting you’ve studied and come to love; you’ve studied, understood and fallen in love with every brush stroke and even flaws. Imagine someone else falling in love with that same painting. You more than anyone else will be able to understand. That is exactly what it’s like to love yourself before someone else loves you.

Self-Love-Quotes-1

So, basically before you can love others, or “feel loved” you have to first love yourself. And no, loving yourself doesn’t make you selfish/self-centred. It only means you are investing in yourself, so you can have even more to invest in others and appreciate when others invest in you. Self-love is basically where love begins; after your love for GOD.

How do you go about loving yourself?

The basic step is to forgive yourself of past mistakes, let go of any pain, regret, past failures, basically anything that makes you feel undeserving or worthless. And truth is; only GOD can take all that away. Also you need to understand who you are to GOD, to understand that HE has kept you here for a reason hence you are far from worthless.

Learning to love yourself is a process that takes time, but with GOD, it takes minutes.

UNTIL NEXT TIME….. In the words of Whitney Houston: Learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all (after loving GOD)….. XOXO

You! Yes you! You better read this!

I just had to reblog this…. Do read…

Corrine's Diary.

Hi everyone!! I know it’s been a while!! Been so busy with work and school and let me tell you! It’s not easy.

These days with prayer and experience I’ve come to discover something!!
  • This post goes out to everybody but mainly aimed at guys! Yep! So I’m just gonna write this.
To you males out there who have had or have a good woman. Do you know the kind of damage you leave behind when you’ve used, abused, neglected, mistreat and violated these women? Mentally, emotionally and spiritually? The damage you leave behind after you have used these women is worse than hurricane Katrina and the earthquakes in Haiti and Nepal put together.
Theses women are so broken and afraid to love or let anybody get close enough to love them. They come with trust issues, fear of being hurt and neglected again, judgement and overcautiousness. They lie in…

P.S…… I was supposed to put this post up about a week ago but…..

I am officially tired of producers and actors ruining my favourite shows just because they cannot keep their feelings in check! When main characters are killed off in more than two of your favourite shows just because of a debacle with the producers or as a result of a failed relationship with co-actors, then there is probable cause for alarm.

Greys-Anatomy

First off, Grey’s Anatomy, I’ve followed this show for only God knows how long. After several painful deaths (some of which even made me shed a tear or two) and several characters being shipped off to unknown destinations, I began to wrap my head around the fact that maybe just maybe the series was supposed to have a tragic modulation to it (I mean why else would there be no chance of happily ever after for any of the characters). Unfortunately the episode before the last was the last straw; the episode saw the tragic death of one of the show’s main characters, Derek. After trying for several hours to wrap my head around why the writer was trying so hard to make Meredith Grey’s life so miserable (she previously lost her mother and sister, now her husband), I decided to do some digging online. Imagine my disgust when I found out Derek was cut off because of a misunderstanding he had with the show runners. Not only that, several other characters that had previously exited the show left as a result of same and not on their own volition. Now I have come to the conclusion that Shonda (Show’s Creator and Executive producer) is possessed. For now she is safe, so long as she doesn’t touch Jackson and April! If she does I will hunt her down!!!

vampire-diaries-title-cast

I’ve been an ardent follower of The Vampire Diaries since the very first season, and I am so very sure one of the main reasons we watch this show is the Stephan Damon Elena love triangle. I was more than pleased when I got to know Damon and Elena were actually together. Somehow, I believe their relationship was the reason for their intense chemistry on the show. They eventually broke up and I don’t know if I was the only one who noticed, but it was very obvious on the show. Actually, it was after an episode of the show I decided to check out the latest on their relationship. Down the line, it was reported that Elena had asked the writers of the show to keep the “love scenes” between she and Damon to the barest minimum. Eventually, she announced she was leaving the show. Going where? Why? This was definitely not the last season of the show, what is supposed to happen now? Thanks to her intended exit, the show runners decided to throw a very uninteresting couple in our faces (Stefan and Caroline). To probably cushion Elena’s exit while the match make Damon with someone else. So, if Elena wasn’t an actress and she held very good position in a firm alongside Damon and they started a relationship that eventually got estranged, would she have left the company? What happened to keeping your personal lives separate from your work lives? Oh well, I will continue watching the show unless of course they pair Damon up with Bonnie. In that case I will hunt Elena down!

Bottom line, these shows keep quite a number of viewers going (you’d be surprised at how many). And honestly, I feel it is rather unfair to not consider viewers when making cuts or deciding to leave a show (especially for trivial reasons). Yes, they are just movies but still…..

UNTIL NEXT TIME…….. XOXO

When Are You Getting Married???

funny-marriage-game-over

I am terribly sorry for the long hiatus! It is really not my fault *cries in biochemistry*. See! I never expected my life to be like this after my first degree. I mean I even swore I was done with education. When I always heard about masters, all I could picture was;

  1. Pay your school fees
  2. Go home
  3. Come and collect your certificate after one year or eighteen months

I never knew I had to attend classes every day, read like I was in medical school, devout my life, spirit and body to getting the degree. It has been flat-out hectic I must confess, way different from what I expected. The worst part of it all, the lecturer walks into the class and starts with “this is a more advanced class; I don’t have to explain too much”. I mean I can barely remember what the structure of glucose looks like and you are calling me advanced issorai.

Let me ramble a bit….

See!!! There is a very high possibility that if I hear the word marriage again and my name just so happens to be the subject of that discussion, I’ll just go on exile or something. I can categorically state that since the beginning of April I have had to talk about/listen to people talk about marriage about 453,745 times. This had me wondering if old age had finally caught up with me. Coincidentally the three closest ladies to me in my class are married, so there’s no way I can avoid the subject even if I wanted to. The worst part is the fact that every weekend someone I know gets married and I also get to hear of new set wedding dates every other day. According to my friend Ada; boys that were toasting the living day light out of us are all married now. But! Wait a minute…. I am like at least three to six years younger than these people o. The fact that I have lived a rather “fast-forwarded” life hasn’t even helped issues at all. All everyone sees is this matured overripe individual doing her masters and so she should be married or preparing to be.

I made the mistake of using the “I am still very young” line with my uncle early last week. He was quick to remind me that his mother got married at 21 and if I didn’t have a “partner” now, then… (He sha didn’t complete the statement). He even went ahead to give me a list of possible dating pools (in my mind I was just wondering if my life was really that pathetic). I got home tired as hell that day seeing as I had to go to the market after school and as always I hopped right into the kitchen to make dinner for my dad. Just when I started thinking of how this was just half of what the stress will be like when I am married with kids, my phone rang. It was someone I served with, I hadn’t heard from her since we passed out last year. We talked for a bit and then she asked “When are you getting married self?” I laughed for like 30 seconds.

I really am tired of hearing one thing or the other about marriage every single day. Brothers and sisters in the Lord there is no hurry. I AM YOUNG and it is not by force to get married!!! And I believe marriage is something you should start considering when you are actually ready to be a husband or a wife and not because everybody is getting married. Trust me it is better to be unmarried even at 45 than to hurriedly marry the wrong person. Besides I still have biochemistry to worry about *adjusts glasses*. And to everyone I know getting engaged every other day; please sell cheap asoebi, I nor get money. I don’t have a job anymore. God bless you.

And yes! Speaking of marriage I saw the picture above two days ago and I couldn’t stop laughing at the ideas that came to my head and the suggestions some friends made. All in all the conclusion was; THAT WEDDING MUST SCATTER. There’s no way in hell you should leave that venue without leaving a mark.

UNTIL NEXT TIME……… XOXO
