Observations in its Finest.. Part 2

Thank you for visiting.

 Comments, Views, Opinions, Expressions, Ideas etc etc are all welcome..

Hello World,

I hope we are all faring well.

Quick update

I am hoping this post will not have a part 3 lol.
Ok,  so far am good No am BLESSED and thankful for all the months of protection, provision, growth, development, sustenance and uncountable blessings from my Heavily Father upon my family, friends, blogsville and many more. This month is a thankful month and I am happy I will always be THANKFUL, the fact am able to BREATH sef is a blessing. If you don't feel thankful at all, well its a massive SHAME.

I am also thankful  for My Pastor MRS.... She is ALIVE and full of ENERGY. Despite all, imagine ovarian cancer over the cause of few months, she ran  for cancer research (race for life) prior to the diagnosis this summer after the run (sighs) . Unimaginable, but am glad she LIVED to tell the TESTIMONY Because God showed his power and baffled the doctors. They found water instead of  a MASS when they opened her up, this is after God told our Pastor Mr to administer holy communion to her every night. I like my Pastor MRS she is friendly, warm and sweet. Always hugging and pecking away. She definitely gave me masses of hugs during my emotional roller coaster with the dude of the past".lol(all distant memory, thank you Lord). To top it all of, during the early times of diagnosis  she came to church helped out even preached sef when Pastor Mr traveled anyhoo we would not have guessed.
 I don't wish cancer on ANYBODY and trust me I was quick and Bold to stand up clapping and just showing gratitude whilst she shared her awesome testimony over night vigil). Being sick is not FUN oo. So pls be thankful. xxxx I extend the JOY  the Lord gave her to all  of us that  are seeking and desiring the day to share our own testimony. AMEN. xxx (I love my PASTORS, they are great examples, warm and kind people).

7. Managing your Expectations Positively:  Its  important to understand that expectations will always come either through the person attitude or through our own attitude.We are humans, whether we approve or not, we will consciously or subconsciously place people on a pedal stool(some of us don't) or have a degree of expectations about something we are proactively engaged in e.g. relationships. Now, its essential we understand that managing our expectations positively is not only healthy but it is essential to our emotional well being.
What am I saying? Humans are undeniably full of faults that are usually out of our control and our abilities. The sooner we understand that managing our expectations is not only empowering, it is also encouraging as it fosters the ability to be rational and remain mature in approaching or dealing with situations. It also helps us not to get over ourselves by deluding  ourselves through all sorts instead it should help to put things into real and positive perspectives.  I think for me, I just mentally gear myself to appreciate all life has to offer, the good, the bad and the ugly. I believe people are capable of WHATEVER so therefore I try not to get excited or overly protective about things that am unable to control one of them being humans. Besides, we are encouraged not to put our trust in princes or men. Meaning for me, don't allow yourself to get soaked in and if you do, o well. Besides, life experiences has  taught me to take everything with a pinch of salt and always be open to any ideas that could possibly occur.  Nobody is above mistakes and we are all capable of messing up or better still being MESSED UP.

Note:  Understand this, the only expectations people can have of you are the ones you offer likewise the only expectations you can expect from others are the ones they PORTRAY (so lets  keep it  REAL always).

8. Privilege Vs Duty: I believe it pays more to view a place of a service as a privilege rather than a Duty. Why: It motivates us to to do our best when we understand this is a privilege  not our right or by our doing. Besides, not only does it  humble us, it should remind us that there are tons of people waiting and looking to do a better job with our privileges ( wow, am ministering  to me oo)..xxx

9. Owing your Happiness to another:  When we begin to delude ourselves that seeking happiness from various places will sustain us or keep us sane is not only the beginning of Hot madness  it is the beginning of a long lonely road. Why: Happiness is a decision, to chose to happy in spite  all is something that is truly inspirational and keeps one grounded when things go wrong or does not seem right. Life has bumps, loads of it too and if we can't  find a small happiness in the bumps am not so sure if what we seek will give us sustainable happiness either. Am not saying having our heart desires fulfilled wont make us happy, it so will but choosing to be happy before helps one to happily appreciate the blessings that adds to our already overflowing joy.
 I also don't think its right or fair to owe our happiness to another spouse. Yes, I don't believe another individuals should be made to feel responsible for our own happiness. It not only UNFAIR, its inconsiderate and unrealistic, and purely delusional. Why: Humans are dynamic in nature, we are a breed of selfishness and deception (I pray we will not meet people with such traits or be one ourselves and if we are May God and Jesus Blood deliver and cleanse our spirits), humans feelings are unstable and unreliable. Based on that, it better we chose to be happy regardless. Don't get me wrong am not saying people shouldn't make us feel happy, am saying we should not place our NEED to be happy on them.

10. The Comparison Syndrome: (Inspired by my daily devotional guide UCB, its a MUST Have, a great blessing).   UCB "When you keep comparing yourself with others, you are denied a SENSE of accomplishment because you have made the benchmark to be like somebody else (WORD, thought provoking). Ponder on it. xx

My bits: We live in a society where oppression and repression very much exists and dominates. For some this is our story, for some others it not yet and for some others it is yet to be. Due to our inability to comprehend that we are also made to make an impact some of us chose to compare ourselves with others without much consideration to deeper stuffs. Some of us compare ourselves without considering  the circumstances surrounding the person success.  We are so focused on that "comparison syndrome  that we forget to reach out to our own innermost treasure and allow ourselves to appreciate us, celebrate our talents and aim to reach for a higher, healthy goal that will make a positive impact too. We all have different skills and roles to play and I encourage us to start doing it and Almighty Heavenly Father will see us all through.

P.S. My friend says am a "Strategic Thinker" because of my thought provoking posts. Lol. I dont know about that one oo. But I guess it a good compliment, besides have been complimented to write a BOOK. LOL. Will see..... my prayer is to continue to walk fervently with the Lord and not fall, fail or flutter and if I ever do ( I reject in Jesus Name. Amen.), I will learn from it and BOUNCE BACK. But, there are some expensive mistakes sha, you just want to AVOID...xxx

Have fashionably blessed Week. Xxxx

Remember: life is a continuous learning process and character building is the EVIDENCE.

God is love, He encouraged us to love thy neighbour as thy self. Hardwork but o well, I will keep trying. xxxx

  9. This, I believe people are capable of WHATEVER so therefore I try not to get excited or overly protective about things that am unable to control one of them being humans. Besides, we are encouraged not to put our trust in princes or men' and this, ' "When you keep comparing yourself with others, you are denied a SENSE of accomplishment because you have made the benchmark to be like somebody else...' jumped out at me, but so did all you wrote. When we expect so much from people, we set ourselves up for possible disappointment because human beings will always fail. Also, the Bible says that when we compare ourselves to ourselves, we are not wise. It is total foolhardiness to belittle your own efforts by comparing yourself with others and feeling that you have not done anything. The truth of the matter is that, we should be in competition with the goals that God has set for us to achieve and in achieving them, we find our niche, and the people God has called to assist us. This is a truly insightful/revealing post, and I just became a follower. About your pastor Mrs, what an awesome testimony, but then, that's just the way our Father is, I call Him the Impossibility specialist. I bless God for her and her family. Beautiful share, girl.

    1. Sorry, should have added quotation marks to this, " I believe people are capable of WHATEVER so therefore I try not to get excited or overly protective about things that am unable to control one of them being humans. Besides, we are encouraged not to put our trust in princes or men' and this." Hit the send button before i realized that i did not. Cheers.
