Refusing Resentment!!!

r

I refuse to be resentful, for there is no prison like the prison of resentment. Resentment eats deep into your soul, it affects the way you think and views people.

What we fail to realize, is the fact that the one you resent isn’t bothered, especially when he/she is oblivious to your resentment. In that case, you certainly ain’t winning the battle rather, you are allowing the person to control your mind.

Resentment makes you bitter and a bitter personality never attracts good things.

Right or Wrong?

It doesn’t pay to jump to conclusions

2a

I and a particular friend drifted apart in 2016, and I do remember, trying to reach out to her but she brushed me off.
It really got me worried and all efforts to get to know what happened met a brick wall. At that moment, I kept wondering what I did wrong and couldn’t place why the ill-treatment, but had to respect her decisions and moved on.

This past week, she reached out to me on Facebook and I was pretty surprised and we tried to catch up old times via Facebook chats. Somehow she brought up the discussion that she didn’t want to have with me 2years ago. Her attitude towards me then was just as a result of a misunderstanding, which we cleared.

I was amazed, that all this time when I was wondering what I did wrong, it turned out I didn’t do anything. I thought I was the one with the problem, but it turns out that she was the problem.

She misunderstood a situation and capitalized on it. I was disappointed in her and at the same time relieved that I really didn’t sabotage our friendship, she did.

It’s all in the past, which is the most important thing but I really can’t be close buddies with her anymore, because she showed that she easily jumps into conclusion, without trying to understand people.

Honestly, it pays to get all facts right rather than jumping to conclusions.

 

Happiness From Within

Image result for quotes on happiness from within

I tried to understand why things are going same way,
I tried to justify my actions,
I tried to question my instincts,
I tried to perfect all my imperfections just to be accepted,
I tried to lower my standards just so I can accommodate different flaws,
I tried to just live life just so I won’t be tag too serious.

But what I failed to realize is that i’m a unique being,
I was created in a special way,
I was made to love myself first before anyone will,
My standards ain’t high, some people are not just worth having me,
I can’t be someone else to prove a point to those who doesn’t deserve me,
Tomorrow is pregnant so, therefore, my time will surely come.

Why brood over people that don’t create time to be with you?
Why accommodate unnecessary personalities that only make you sad?
Why let yourself to believe everyone can be your friends when clearly is not true?
Why justify the actions of unserious people in your life?

You are worth more than diamonds!
You are wonderfully made!
You are the peaceful heart to a troubled soul!
Treasure the few friends you have,
Value quality over quantity,
Smile for your turn to laugh over your sorrows has come!!

Loving My Baby Oil!!!!!!

Have always been the type that doesn’t fancy the usage of body creams as I really don’t believe they work for me. Most times after purchase, no matter how expensive it was, I find myself giving it out because was  getting pretty bored with it from not seeing positive results.

I have a combination skin so I try to be careful what I use on my body, a lesson I have learnt after a reaction I  had recently. I have used creams, oils but I still didn’t get the wow factor, so I made up mind to do intensive researches on oils and decided to start with Boots baby oil.

WHY!!!! Well for one I have seen how supple and soft it makes my niece skin looks and somehow just believed it gonna do same for me depite being an adult.lol.

REVIEWS!!!!! To be honest, I love it, it moisturizes my skin and doesn’t dry out so easily. I usually apply body creams or oils at night because I really don’t like to be bothered about them during the day. Have read so many articles that body creams work best at night so it became part of me, however once in a while I do use it on my body during the day.

Have also noticed that it evens my complexion which am so happy for right now. It gonna takes roughly 2-3 months before it gets exhausted, I sure will get another one if I don’t get a much better oil to research on. But for now, it is working for me and that’s all that matters.

Google, My Bestie

download

Google has never by any chance disappointed me ever since I decided to stop seeing it as a mere search engine. He is a friend I can count on whenever am a bit confused and these days when someone ask me about something I just say ask google, he is everyone’s best friend.

My response could pissed you off but that is the gospel truth. My best friend has saved me from making some decisions that could cost me my time and money. If I have an interview summon, all I need to do is ask google about it, I don’t even need to elaborate, just give highlights and I will get enough reviews that will help me make a decision of going for it or not especially with all these HMO agents that have a way of having your data with them. With my google search I just ignore such movements.

Even before buying a product, I just find out online if is worth my hard earned cash and if the reviews I get is 70% positive then I give it a benefit of doubt and if is not I just ignore it. Is as simple as that. I actually thought I was the only one guilty of such but have come across people that reason same way as I do and some has confessed to be addicted to Google. Yes you can get addicted to it if you aren’t careful and that is something I usually discourage people from.

Is understandable that we are no longer far from having ideas about different things pertaining to life due to accessible network service,  but when it comes to health I don’t encourage asking google. If at first you decides you want to have an idea of what is going on with you, fine that is ok but when you are actually trying to do self medication through online prescription, then that is where I don’t agree with anyone.

Imagine you are having an abdominal pain which could be as a result of ovulation and you feel there isn’t time for you to get to the hospital and instead you decides to ask google who gives you different reasons why you maybe experiencing abdominal pain, you find yourself picking the most dreadful reason which could be fibroid that was listed or may be PID(Pelvic inflammatory disease). You now find yourself looking for symptoms in your body that wasn’t there in the first place and by so doing your body start mimicking the symptoms you want it to have. All you have successfully done is feed your mind with negativity instead of just seeing your doctor that could have alleviated your fears.

Therefore, even though google happens to be my dear bestie, our friendship have boundaries but don’t know about you.

Reno Omokri Giving Me The Vibes!!!

I love epic response so much and the person giving me the vibes presently is Reno Omokri, former special assistant to the former president, Goodluck  Jonathan. Seriously is not expected of you to always responds to someone’ tweet if you don’t understand the topic on discussion, and even though you are allowed to offer your opinion, it is advisable to get facts right before doing that in order to save yourself the embarrassment that will sure come afterwards.

Reno Omokri tweeted that within one year of office, the former president GEJ built some universities in some listed states and a Twitter user wanted proof that GEJ actually built one of them. See the twitter conversation below;

Now read Reno’s reply to this question and also proof to back up his previous statement.

Another scenario saw Reno Omokri tweeting about what is going on with respect to power supply and a twitter user who obviously didn’t take enough time to understand what Reno was saying quickly lashed at him and Reno’s response was hilarious.

Reno’s hilarious response got me laughing so hard chaiiii

Please before you lash at someone, check yourself very well, this is very important.

When You Are Remembered By FIRS!!!

 

a

I got to the office this morning and started the day with the usual routine. My office happens to have this penthouse view, you could see people coming into the premises from my end. So as I looked out the window I saw this group of people coming in and I could just read their body language, that spoke nothing but insecurity and guilt.

You know that expression of ‘I know am not worthy, but please bear with me because my survival depends on this’ when you are doing something that is not justified and expects or hope to be accepted. Well, I had formed my opinion of them already due to how their visit usually ends in some trivial decisions and as such, had a ready attitude waiting for them. They walked in and I was just busy with my phone while my junior colleague attended to them. They introduced themselves as FIRS ( Federal Inland Revenue Service)officials and went on to enlighten us on VAT and other taxes payable. All this while, I would only look up to steal a glance at their miserable faces, and continue my business with my phone.

Then they made that stupid remark; “oh you make hair here” when our products were glaring at them! That was when I looked up for the longest time and gave them the coldest stare ever, and corrected them with a high pitch tone. Am sure you know what that means? Amazing how rude one can be when irritated!

Well, it happens that they didn’t pick any offence with that, as they were somewhat happy to have finally gotten my attention. They seized the opportunity to lecture us on VAT and other taxes payable. And in the same vein, I used the opportunity to pour my venom on them as well. I had to ask them what they have been doing with all the taxes that employees and employers have been paying all these years. Imagine the amount of money that is being realized from VAT and PAYE from companies both small, medium and large sizes, hotels, restaurants communication companies etc! Is it being invested in Education, Energy, Security, Infrastructures or is it the Power sector that was in a management state before the “Change Administration” took over and it’s now non-existent!

Anyway, I don’t want to bore you more than I have done, with my ordeal with those faithful officers. Hmmm did I just call them faithful? Well, just to cover up the wound. They claimed to be the ones funding most federal school projects and that 20% of the total amount spent on security comes from them. OK ooh we sincerely hope that there is an iota of truth in that!

Finally, I collected their booklet and phone number and promised to relate all to my boss, who will, in turn, get back to them. But I was really happy, they availed me that opportunity to give them a piece of my mind.

After they left, I had to ponder on what the outcome of the visit will be if my boss decides to call them for their services which to an extent is inevitable because all organizations no matter the size has been mandated to always pay tax.

Remembering the experiences of two close buddies of mine really got me worried, because I recalled them saying that the visit from FIRS resulted in their salaries being slashed all in the name of tax deduction. Their management issued a renewed employment letter stating that their salary will no longer be the same rather it will be calculated as after-tax thus explaining the fact that henceforth salaries will be slashed, and no one could question the method by which the calculations will be done. I could remember how worried they were because the salary wasn’t even enough to take care of their living expenses, so they knew with this development, is gonna be worse. Of course, they had to manage as there was no alternative as at then.
