Proud Aunt…?

Proud Aunt…?

Ok you can confess to be the proud Aunt to your nephews and nieces, you love them dearly! And you enjoy spending time together and you spoil them a bit too much!

The question that everyone has been asking you is, when are you planning on having your own children? Are you planning on having any, time is running out they say!

This is a question that is asked in full view of everyone and for a while one will laugh and brush it off BUT what no one knows is how difficult it has been for you to actually conceive! It has not been for lack of trying.

The question then is, is it insensitive to ask a woman when she is planning on having children? By the way this happens to couples as well as single women!

I know a lot of people who go through this emotional battle very privately. Growing up I had an aunt who I was very fond of, whenever we visited she went all out to entertain us, and she would play with us and cook the best meals ever.

As a child I didn’t understand why she never had children but I loved going to her place, only later on in my life, did I figure it out!

Is it insensitive to ask? Or can we blame it on just a general conversation??  As a society should we just not be asking such questions and be sensitive? This question can cut really deep! 

Life is never a straight line, everyone follows a different path! God does not give you more than you can handle!

Is it best to just find a business you love and give it your all? Until another blessing comes for you?

Choose to love over fear

Choose to love over fear

Love is one of the greatest voices on earth.

Has there ever been a time when you chose to love, a lot of times a thing that hinders us from choosing to love is fear. Fear because we have been burnt before.

Fear keeps us inside our comfort zone and because love can make us vulnerable we tend to shy away and choose fear.

Oprah Winfrey says “I believe every single event in life happens in an opportunity to choose love over fear”

When we can choose to love then we are giving ourselves an opportunity to better ourselves.

Love helps us to grow as a person while fear hinders that opportunity, by choosing to love your fear will disappear. No two people are the same! Dont compare people, they say.

The more you choose love, the more love is in your life, it gets easier and easier!

However this can be difficult when you have been hurt over and over, by the same person!

On the same token does staying with them mean love or is it fear of being alone?

 

Feeling stuck in your daily job?

Feeling stuck in your daily job?

Of course this is bound to happen, as humans we are not meant to stay in one place. Our hair grows we need to cut it, our shoe size and weight changes and have to buy new clothes,why do we expect the same in our lifestyle and careers.

We have dreams that we want to pursue but are too scared, why?? Is it not too scary work a 9-5 job that does not satisfy you? When you look at the pension benefits, you know you will have to downgrade your lifestyle in order to survive!

Your life is not meant to work 9-5 and hardly have enough to pay the bills!

At some point you have had the impulse to start your own business, why did you not pursue it? Learn to act on impulse if you think of a business idea research it and find out how to go about it! The internet has provided a lot of open doors for online business opportunities why not start your own online business while working full time!

It is not a walk in the park but worth the sacrifice!

You are gonna make it!

You are gonna make it!

Don’t give up on your dreams or your dreams will give up on you!

Your dreams will become a reality one day, you just have to keep believing and working hard on them.

Yes dreams require hard work to come true 🙂

Don’t let someone who gave up on their dreams talk you out of yours, actually when someone tries, ask them what happened to their dreams? 🙂 where did they go

Focus on the the thing you want in your life, don’t let anyone stop you, not even yourself!!

If you can imagine it you can achieve it, if you can dream it you can become it!

 

 

 

 

Dare to walk alone!

Dare to walk alone!

Its your road and yours alone. Others may walk it with you but no one can walk it for you!

The soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone!

Walking alone helps me focus before making important decisions.

Don’t be scared! Follow your heart and your dreams!

 

Life is a never ending learning process

Life is a never ending learning process

If you bring curiosity and hunger for learning into your life, it could be like an onion. There is always something new underneath.

Something we discover as we move forward. There is always more and more things to learn about life.

http://tidyurl.com/rmue2e

Do not be content, have a passion for discovery and fascination about life.

The quickest way to become an old duck is to stop learning.

What did you learn this year?

I have no special talent, am only passionately curious by Albert Einstein!
