Being Thankful

Did you know that fully 85% of your happiness in life will come from your personal relationships. Your interaction and the time you spend with people you care about will the major source of the pleasure, enjoyment and satisfaction that you derive daily. The other 15% of your happiness will come from your accomplishments. Tonight before you go to bed ask yourself this, “what am i thankful for today” ? Well I’ll let you ponder on that one.

Perhaps the simplest way to make another person feel good about himself or herself is your continuous expressions of appreciation for everything that person does for you, large or small. Say “thank you” on every occasion. Thank your spouse for everything that he or she does for you. Thank your children for their cooperation and support in everything that they do around the house. Thank your friends for the smallest of kindnesses.

The more you thank other people for doing things for you, the more things those other people will want to do. Every time you thank another person, you cause that person to like themselves better. You raise their self-esteem and improve their self-image. You cause them to feel more important. You make them feel that what they did was valuable and worthwhile. You empower them.

And the wonderful thing about thanking other people is that, every time you say the words, “thank you” you like yourself better as well. You feel better inside. You feel happier and more content with yourself and life. You feel more fully integrated and positive about what you are doing. When you develop an attitude of gratitude that flows forth from you in all of your interactions with others, you will be amazed at how popular you will become and how eager others will be to help you in whatever you are doing.

Ready for Fatherhood?

As men near the stage of life where families and children become important, there can be lots of angst over whether now is the time to start a family.

Lets find out if you are emotionally ready;

  • Do you currently enjoy spending time with children?

You start noticing the little things about children, and they make you smile. The kids playing in the aisle at Nakumatt have been seriously distracting you from your shopping duties. You note crib and baby-monitor prices at the baby store without thinking. You enjoy and look forward to spending time with your friend’s baby, or your nephew, more than ever. You don’t mind their crying and whining as much as you used to, and so on. Chances are you want a kid.

  • The “one”

Ideally, your relationship should be long-term in order to raise a child (or children) together. Committed couples can usually discern for themselves when the best time to take the next step is, which for many is after marriage.

  • Have you set established your priorities?

As an individual, and before making yourself responsible for another human being’s life, make sure you are fulfilling your own expectations out of life. For example, if you want to be successful professionally, then attain financial stability first. Once you have a strong, loving relationship with a lady, the decision to bring a child into the world becomes simpler.

  • Don’t be misled

But before you rush off to the bedroom to start making babies, guard yourself against false leads. You may think that you’re ready, but if your feelings are more about you than the child, then that’s not right. If you feel there’s something missing in your life or you’re a single guy who needs a change, then a child is not necessarily the missing link. Perform a good evaluation of your own intentions before you commit.

Additionally, there are also signs that you are not ready for fatherhood, which may be interspersed with the above. If you’re having some of the following doubts, then perhaps you should put off your plans until you’re good and ready.

  • You aren’t committed to calming down

If you picture yourself putting the baby to bed and then heading out for a good dozen beers with the boys, then forget it. You can either ditch the partying or put off having a baby until you’re ready to do so. Sure, in the past you’ve been able to juggle school and partying, work and relationships, etc., but raising a child is one thing you can’t “juggle” with lots of recreation.

Judge not

I was shocked, confused, bewildered

As i entered Heaven’s door,

Not by the beauty of it all,

Nor the lights or the decor.

But it was the folks in Heaven

Who made me sputter and gasp

The thieves, the liars, the sinners,

The alcoholics and the trash.

There stood the kid from class seven

Who swiped my lunch money twice

Next to him was my old neighbor

Who never said anything nice.

Fred, who is always though

Was rotting away in hell,

Was sitting pretty on cloud nine,

Looking incredible well.

I nudged Jesus, ‘What’s the deal?

I would love to hear your take.

How would all these sinners get up here?

God must have made a mistake.

‘And why is everyone so quiet,

So somber – give me a clue’

‘Hush, child,’ he said,

‘they’re all in shock.

No once thought they’d be seeing you.’


Remember…Just going to church doesn’t make you a

Christian any more than standing in the garage makes you a car.

Every saint has a PAST…

Every sinner has a FUTURE!

Life with God is like unsharpened as no point!

I’d like to say it’s been a pleasure

It’s been a month now since my last post, guess i have been busy sitting behind that office desk with no time to smell the roses. But i must confess, i missed my favorite pastime.

By the way today is my birthday, just turned ** . ( Hears cheers from a distance )

Looking back one year ago, i had the worst birthday ever. Just ask my pals Dan and Alex. But guess what, now i can afford a BIG smile and i think I’ve added bit of weight.

Life hasn’t been the same again, i bet your asking yourself what the f* happened. Well that’s for another day. All i can say is i found happiness in little small town called Matiliku.

Am thankful for the gift of life, my family & friends who are always there for me, regardless of anything.

I love you all.
