Starting is one of the greatest steps to success. It is easy to get caught up in how things will turn out. We have this great vision and goals of what we want to do. Where we want to be that we forget about taking the first step. Instead of thinking about failing or the challenges that we can encounter on the way focus your energy on what will happen if you start moving towards your goal.
If you want to make any change in your life you have to be the one who takes that step and draws the line in the sand and say that you will not let bad habits control what your future can be. Habits play a huge role in our life they determine whether we fail or succeed.
I am a huge believer in setting small goals. If one of your main goal this year was to lose weight challenge yourself to go to the gym at least twice a week. Consistency is also key to success. Sometimes we focus more on the result that we forget that it takes time. This year started at a bad note I was so demotivated about my job. I decided to take a break from everything. My love for blogging was also affected. I did not know that the break would end up to be more than one month. I am back with a very positive mindset.
Even the creator of Pilates, Joseph Pilates himself once famously said, “In 10 sessions you’ll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you’ll see the difference, and in 30 sessions you’ll have a whole new body”. There is nothing worth achieving that does not come with persistence and patience.
This year I want to unlock new levels in my life. I want to push myself to greater heights.
Many people often say find a man who loves you more than he would ever love anyone else. Well, if you want a long-lasting relationship, I would advise you to look for someone who loves God more than he or she loves anyone else. Since a person who loves God fears and Obeys Him.
One of the ways you can put God first in your relationship is through strengthening your personal relationship with God. He can only work in your relationship if you let him work in you first. Love God first before your partner. If you love God, you will fear him and avoid doing what does not please Him. Pray for your partner. Pray together since a family that prays together stays together. Read the bible together and make it a habit.
Acknowledging God in your relationship does not make it smooth or easy. There will be a hard time and challenging moments. However, putting God first and having a good relationship with Him will make you stronger in trials. It will also make you wiser.
Nobody should treat you as an option even though the person satisfies you sexually and gives you everything that you want. If there are other yous in the equation, it will not work. If a person loves you, he or she will be loyal and faithful. He or she will do everything to ensure that you don’t get hurt. If you really like someone, you have to ensure that it is only him or her. You deserve to be more than a second option and more than an afterthought.
It is important to know your worth. Do not accept to be anyone’s plan B when plan A does not work. You should not be anyone’s good for a moment or replacement. When someone treats you as an option, they will run to you only when they have a need that only you can help. They will run at you when they are angry, although when you are in the same situation, they will not care. They will not even spare some time to listen to you. Time is important. When I fall in love, I want to be serious and sure. People who treat you like the only choice will always make you the first priority. They will also consider your emotions and feelings when making a decision.
I am turning 24 years next week. One thing that I love to do during this time is to reflect on the year and the things that I have achieved. This year did not start at a good note. I knew that I wanted to become a freelancer, but I did not know how to go about it. Therefore, I spent most of my time researching. On March I got my first job. I thank God for this. I was also working on improving my relationship with God.
I started this blog this year and am so grateful for those people who read my articles and comment. I have found joy and happiness in sharing my thoughts and experience. I have so much planned for 2020. One of my keywords for 2020 is to CREATE. I want to create a platform where we can all share our thoughts. I also want to create memories and start doing business. One thing that I have learnt this year is that if you want to do something you will always look for a way to get it done. However, if you do not want to do something, you will always look for an excuse. I am not perfect, and there are some things that I planned on achieving this year but for some reasons I did not. For instance, I wanted to start going to school this year, but it was a bit challenging.
It is not easy to start all over again. We all struggle to let go of relationships, jobs and friendships. It is hard to say goodbye to people that we have known for a long time. People that we have shared the good and the bad moments. Sometimes it is worth it. Sometimes starting all over again is worth it. It is hard, and sometimes it hurts. In order for us to grow, we need to move on. If you are struggling to let go of something, it is important to know that there is strength in the struggle. There is also beauty in starting all over.
Sometimes starting all over again is the only option that we have. Sometimes it is the only way that one can be happy and peaceful. Sometimes it is the only way that one can create the life that we have always wanted. No matter how scary it can appear, you need to let go of toxic relationships and friendships. If you do not let go, you will never grow, and find out what makes you truly happy.
Do not be afraid of something or someone that is standing on the way of your happiness just because you are scared of the unknown. Do not be scared to let go of things or people that drain down your energy.
Hello, I hope everyone is fine. Balancing between school and work can sometimes be challenging. I spend a lot of time working and once the day is over all I want to do is eat, take a shower and sleep. This year one of my main goals has been to create time to read the bible and pray. I have been looking around for one of the best apps to use while doing my devotions. I then came across an app known as You-version bible. If you are interested in this app, you can download it on the play store. This app has made me become consistent.
Every day they have the bible verse of the day
They also have very interesting plans. I read them depending on the situation that I am in, for example, reset your mind.
The app has a reminder.
Another way that one can improve their relationship with God is through having a friend to hold you accountable. In my opinion, this did not work for me, but that does not mean that it won’t work for you.
Another habit that I have developed is being thankful for everything. I like writing down the things that I am grateful for. After reading the bible, I always pray. We can not build a strong relationship with God if we cannot talk to him.
I have had those confusing moments in my career. I have doubted myself a lot of times. Sometimes I think that I understand what is happening. Sometimes I think that I have my life together then BOOM something happens and am left confused.
During these confusing times, I pray for trust not clarity and for the Lord to show me what I am supposed to do. Abraham trusted God and packed his bag and left to a land that God had promised. Roman 8:28 God makes everything work together for good to those who love him and are called according to his purpose.
Gods plans are perfect, and they are meant to give us hope and a future. Even in those confusing time, we must trust that His promises are true and His plans are perfect. He will make a way where there seems to be no way.
Traditionally the man was the one who was supposed to make the first move. However, things have changed in the interpersonal relationship. Most women these days initiate a relationship. Those who still believe that men should make the first move will tell you that you should go with the flow. Women expect men to initiate a conversation. The line between gender is quite blurred. Some people may oppose or support this, but men are better at handling rejection.
Before a man approaches a woman and begins to have a conversation, he has overcome some obstacles. He gathers his courage and gets rid of the doubt. All shy men would love to shift the burden of having to make the first move. When a woman makes the first move, this means that she is courageous and brave. Due to technology, there are several ways that one can use to approach the other person. They include asking them a question, complimenting them, sending a message, and greeting the person.
It is important to note that it does not matter who approached the first move. If the man makes the first move, it does not mean that the relationship is better.
Hello, I hope you are doing alright. The latest song by Selena Gomez is my current favourite song. People always promise the world and the people that you thought will stay with you forever end up leaving you. I have been in a state where accepting the reality of things was so hard. Saying goodbye hurts but seeing you with someone else was more painful. It felt like a bullet going through my chest. I cried every night with the hope that you will be mine again. Getting out of bed was a struggle. I had lost myself.
I have found myself saying this statement, ” I knew you would replace me, but I never thought it would be this fast”. We all date for a reason, and somehow we hope that it would last forever. We made future plan such as the day we will get married. We also agree on how many children we shall have. We could not even imagine our lives apart and then all over sudden you want a future with someone else.
I have also reached a point in my life where I thought what I had with him was something special. I thought that was true love. He threw me away like a piece of trash. Love made me look like a fool. You kept telling me that I hold a special place in your heart, but your actions showed otherwise. Did you even really love me?
