I am fully capable of being a certified “Israelite” (refer to their contemptible manner under the leadership of Moses) and lately, I have witnessed a significant drop in my levels of dissatisfaction. I am sort of proud of this grand achievement. Hopefully, I will do away with the remnants of the “art of complaining” sooner than expected. That is my positive achievement and yes, it feels good.
So… I thought of sharing with you some random stuff that I have found to be very entertaining, encouraging, bits of wisdom or things I do that help me to focus and get me through the week without the need to painfully punch people, and if you’ve got any recommendations do feel free to share with.
Bits of wisdom.
Church was amazing today, Pastor John Gray (google him) gave it to us hard, cold, honest and hilariously. His teaching point was “The measure of LOVE” and I love all things love so I was excited to hear him speak on this subject. I will just write down a few of the MANY things he said and hopefully you will mediate on his wise words.
“How do you quantify love? How do you define love? Love is a lot different when you are in it than the romantic idea you have when you are outside of it! Love is subjective because it is personal BUT there’s only one definition of love and that is GOD because love is the essence of His character. Love will force you to step away from the masses and chase after the one that matters, love celebrates, appreciates and elevates. Love is mercy, it extends, stretches and intends to do good. Love illuminates…it awakens you to the reality that you are NOT alone. Love is selfless, suspends disbelief about people” Re-examine your definition of love and identify what true love is measured by. Love is pure
If you have not watched “Life is but a dream” by Beyonce…I don’t know why you’re still here reading this!!! (No, keep reading then go watch it) Her hard work will leave you speechless. Whatever we want to pursue, let’s pursue it ALL with such burning and fierce passion. Giving everything we do 100% of ourselves so that when we look back…we can all happily say “yes, that was me and I never slacked a day”. On a side note, Blue Ivy undeniably looks like Jay-z. (That resemblance blew my mind!) I am literally bursting with inspiration after watching Bey.
And the girl discovered “The free dictionary” by Farlex. This app is amazing because it has ‘word of the day, quote of the day, this moment in history, puzzles..e.t.c” I am certain that in a months time, the Queen’s language will slip off my tongue like I were born in Buckingham palace. I highly recommend this app.
Moment of the week
BATH TIME!!! I never thought I would live to see the day I got so excited about shower hour but the day came way quicker than I expected. Thursdays are my long bath-days, I have made it my duty to use all shower gels and soak for half an hour. I close my eyes and drown out the world and in that moment everything is still. The thought of Thursday bath-day gives me goosebumps! I recommend this for anyone who is fortunate enough to have long week days and sore feet. Soaking is the cheapest stress reliever!

For those of us having hard days, and things are simply going everyone’s way but yours, just remember that it is too soon to give up on anything. This too shall pass.
“But in your hearts set Christ apart as holy (and acknowledge Him) as Lord. Always be ready to give a logical defence to anyone who asks you to account for the hope that is in you, but do it courteously and respectfully.” 1 Peter 3:15 AMP
