40 days of Thanksgiving

Hey guys,

For the past 27 days I’ve been declaring things I am thankful for and

looking for something everyday to be grateful for. And I decided that for all those who don’t quite get all this thanksgiving I’m giving, here’s a quick brief overview.

Usually everyday, we all have something to complain about. There’s always something going wrong and if its not our life, its the weather or its the government or etc. And I realised that with some of the challenges that I’m currently facing that if I kept this ever growing cycle of complaining or moaning and grumbling (even though I have the right to) that I would become more miserable and the energy I release will be half the output I receive and it will kill the strength for me to pull through.

So I’ve known that the key usually to breakthrough is by thanksgiving, and seeing that this is the season of Thanksgiving (for mainly The United States of America) I felt it right that I should start a 14day challenge of saying thank you. But, as I continued with this challenge, I grew so use to it and it’s slowly but surely been changing my attitude towards each day! Although, it was hard at first! As a result of this realisation, I decided to increase it to 40-days and noticed that one of my favourite musicians and worship leaders from IHOP aka Jaye Thomas was doing the same thing and it provoked me to join in the battle for a WAR ON GRUMBLING.

You see the goal is to cultivate a culture of “Thanksgiving” which we’ve apparently seemed to have lost in this ‘god-forsaken’ world we live in currently. If we cultivate such a culture, imagine what it would be like…! Imagine the shift and transformation. The was I see it is as I commented on my friend’s comment on Facebook saying, jump on the band wagon. the more we get cultivating a culture of thanksgiving, the better [wecreate] the atmosphere [we live in], and the likely hood for us seeing greater miracles and experiencing personal transformation!”

So Why not join in on this war on grumbling? At least if it doesn’t change anything else, it will certainly change your attitude and your outlook on life Pain or Not! Thanks for taking the time to read! Peace! xx #warongrumbling

Sexism ain’t sexy

I will let the writer speak for herself. Enough said. Claire’s basically put to words more constructively what I’ve been saying and thinking (probably over emotionally as in me) for a loooooooooong time (those who’ve seen the show Miss Jocelyn will get the joke of looooong time lol). Please read this insightful post and don’t forget to check the Sterling University article or clip that sparked this intense female ANGER.

Thank you, good night, and Keeping it Real. Peace.

I am so horrified that we are still dealing with sexism in this day and age…

(As a disclaimer I feel I should probably say that I don’t make ranting my day job but, if I did, I’d probably have a lot to say ;). In all seriousness, it’s an issue that has always got my blood boiling and why should my opinion not be expressed? Men, please don’t be offended. I am not demonizing you, nor do I feel that every man responds in exactly the same manner. But, discursively speaking, I have a feeling you will all relate to a lot of what I’m about to say…)

We’ve advanced enough as human beings to be able to find ways to perform organ transplants, build prosthetic limbs and even catapult out of the bloody STRATOSPHERE in a tin can and yet still there are people in this world who…

Having been married only a year and a half, I’ve recently come to the conclusion that marriage isn’t for me.

Now before you start making assumptions, keep reading.

I met my wife in high school when we were 15 years old. We were friends for ten years until…until we decided no longer wanted to be just friends. 🙂 I strongly recommend that best friends fall in love. Good times will be had by all.

Nevertheless, falling in love with my best friend did not prevent me from having certain fears and anxieties about getting married. The nearer Kim and I approached the decision to marry, the more I was filled with a paralyzing fear. Was I ready? Was I making the right choice? Was Kim the right person to marry? Would she make me happy?

Then, one fateful night, I shared these thoughts and concerns with my dad.

Perhaps each…
