Haunting Stories

We sometimes stumble on writings that haunt us for a very long time or even for the rest of our lives especially when such events occur within our town, country or neighbourhood.
For many with good imaginations, this would be something dreadful when the picture decides to remain with us in our minds.
A lot has been going on the world; plane crashes, loss of loved ones, ISIS beheadings, kidnapping, raping of minors, neglect of infected Ebola patients in quarantined wards.
It is one thing to read about these stories, it is another to picture it happen to someone you know. It is not the words that haunt, it is the picture you created that causes fear which haunts as long as the mind can carry it.

Almost every aspect of life has a deadline. Meeting certain levels because we keep ageing, attaining a height in our careers to save for the future, finding a partner so we wouldn't live alone when old, fulfilling our dreams because life is too short.
Deadlines make us jumpy, nervous and short of air. We aim to move faster than time and cause stress for ourselves. The watchwords are there will always be deadlines and we can only try to beat it.

Before an Interview

Every normal person feels a little bit of nervousness before an interview. It is not always easy to sit and listen to someone ask you random questions especially when you are uncertain of what exactly they are seeking to grade your answers.
Interviews are numerous; job interviews, visa interviews, admission interviews, which can be nerve racking.
We need to remember two important things before an interview; focus and relax. Both sound simple but are very difficult, in order to perform well we need to respect these two.

Taking Friends for Granted

Everyone needs friends to talk to, to be with, to share experiences and listen to. Friends are kept close to the heart and even become closer to us than siblings. Most genuine friendships are taken to the end of ones life, which makes this relationship a very special one and should not be taken for granted.
Taking friends for granted is like breaking the code of conduct between and among each other. Friends are meant to be cherished not used; they are meant to be pillars, not foot mats; friends are meant to be understood not envied; friends are meant to be the wisdom we need not the folly of life.
People treat us the way we treat them. Make friends with those that bring out the best in us and makes us useful friends to others.

Best Decisons to Make

Making decisions can be very tricky. There are times when there is no wrong or right decision. It all depends on which is good  for the future.
When we find ourselves in situations like this we need to follow some steps;
- Identify the options you have
- Highlight the pros and cons of each option
- Decide which would take longer to achieve (if there is a deadline)
- Decide which would make you happier
- Stay focused and eliminate obstacles and discouragement
- Have a clear mind and breathe deep
- Then you can make the best decisions

Feeling of Free

Feeling of free is like a new world released to you; like sunrise after a bad night; breathing in air after been locked in a closet for so long; the promise of more years after diagnosed with cancer.
All want to be free but do not know how to be free; here are some ways:
- Stop thinking about the situation for a few hours
- Do something you have not done in a while like read a book, ride a bike, take a walk
- Visit friends and talk about everything other than the problem
- Take a walk to the beach and just sit and watch the waves
- Stroll to a park or playground and watch children and dogs play. They have no care in the world and it is easier to be a child than an adult.

The Bridge of Life

Have you ever wanted something so much it was difficult for you to get it? Tried for so many years to no avail; and suddenly you find the right way which takes a whole lot of process. Now you get to the very end where it would take one last step to achieve what you desire the most. It feels like you have reached the end of the bridge and you do not know what lies ahead of you.
Life can be very tricky, it pops up with surprises and when you realise you finally got what you wanted, your heart begins to race and all your plans begin to play right before you.
We can get across the bridge of life; nothing lasts forever.

Imagination is not a Crime

Human beings have natural imaginative powers. This said can be observed from movies produced, buildings created and cloth designs as well as hair styles and color.
Imagination takes you to a different world where the seemingly impossible becomes possible.
As long as the dreams, thoughts and visions stay pure; aiming to help someone or making life easier and better to live in and not destructive, imagination remains harmless and definitely not a crime.

The feeling of Satisfaction

Leah thought she was satisfied; good job, perfect marriage, smart kids but the feeling faded away when she met Mia.
Mia had everything Leah had and more but did not seem satisfied and she yearned for more.
Life is all about being content with what you have, unfortunately people always aim higher and higher. Take a moment  to pause and quantify the things you have and have achieved and a feeling of satisfaction will sweep through you like a beach wave.
Try not to regret, experience satisfaction and be grateful.

When you believe

When you believe there is a God, things change. When you believe and free yourself, things move. When you believe there is so much for you to bear, belive and live.
Life is becoming too complicated and too mysterious to be handled without God. It takes only one step and that is to believe.

Is there still Hope?

In a world with so many problems another springs up and we wonder; Is there still hope? Taking all precaution and extra care yet becoming a victim where there is little hope.
Is it all worth it? Can we all escape it? Is it a plan to merge the world? Or a scheme to divert us all?
Looking to the Heavens were only our hope comes from.

Act over Delay

Did not expect this sort of thing to happen at this time. When everything is prepared for, an important item is delayed. Trying everything humanly possible and all you keep getting is silence. It is driving me crazy but I must keep calm. Delay is a natural cause in life. It is common especially when there is a big change which is about to happen or has happened before we get into the future.
I can only believe time will slow down and this delay will turn out to arrive at the perfect hour.
Delays cannot stop us unless we want it to, let's act now.

Personal Setbacks

Continously do I ponder at why people desire to make themselves setbacks in others lives. When help is needed, they are not ready or willing to help rather they give suggestions that when taken, it sets you on another course in life and you may lose two to five years of developing your life.
Personal setbacks come in different ways and from people closest to you like family. They should be identified and ignored like rumours for only you can make yourself great from what you believe in and who you believe in.

Our Looks Matter?

We go to the extreme to look good when all that matters is how we behave, what we can contribute to society and being role models. We lose focus and waste so much time bothering about what others think and approve of us.
It is a fact we live in a racist world, but the person who notices the color or the accent using racist remarks is the one with the problem. If we can overcome what people think about our looks then we can overcome it all.
Do our looks still matter?

Wish we could Change the world

We wake up sometimes thinking how we wished we had the power to change a lot. If we were super heroes we would stop the crises in the Middle East, the terrorism in West Africa, recession in the western world and eradicate poverty and hunger.
We close our eyes so tight we imagine life was controlled by our wishes. Our good wishes. Then the world would be paradise, free from fear and death.
If only wishes were like prayers then we would have what we want. But why can't we pray as much as we wish? Is it because prayers need purity of heart to be answered? Or we are too scared of our wishes coming true?
