NO CARE

Imagine a world where no one had to worry about anything, you wake up, take a bath, eat meals throughout the day, sit in front of the television all day,probably nap in between without going to work, not thinking about paying bills,what to wear, or how to make sure your bank account doesn’t run out of cash. hmm! impossible right?

When I watch my son, I wonder why adult life is so complicated. The little fire-ball as I like to call him sure knows how to keep busy. In fact watching him meet his milestones was simply amazing. The day he took his first step was definitely the best day of his toddler life. All he thinks about is walking all over the house until exhaustion drives him to sleep. He doesn’t have to worry about anything, all he’s accustomed to, is mummy changing diaper, feeding him at intervals even when he hasn’t cried out for food, worry if that cough is the flu or not, waking up at night to check on him and make sure he’s very comfy.

In as much as we cannot  be served like children, we definitely can learn one or two from the lifestyle of a child. We shouldn’t be  irresponsible adults idling away because we want to live the life of a child but we can adopt the “No worries” attitude of a child. we definitely can bring a balance into our lives by not worrying about everything. like they always say, worrying doesn’t get anything done. it only aggravates our health and can lead to life threatening diseases.

If you find yourself worrying, then you need to off load those things. Try fixing the problem, if you worried about your finances try to budget more, or if it’s about your career try updating yourself,make sure you are still relevant to be well positioned when a better opportunity presents itself. But above all these, my greatest cure pill for worry is PRAYERS. I can’t tell you enough how it has helped lift heavy burdens off my heart.

when everything becomes so overwhelming, and have exhausted all therapy to get them fixed, i bow my head in prayer, and i feel an instant peace within. i feel refreshed to tackle everything. I have a fresher perspective and I become ecstatic like my DS (Dearest Son) who is always eager to discover new things around him, full of energy, having no care and doesn’t mind moving items one hundredth times even after have told him not to.

 

Thieves or What…?

downloadI woke up at about pass 11pm to the sound of a male and female voice, it sounded like an argument was going on, I went back to sleep almost immediately because I was unsure where the voices were coming from. Few minutes later I jolted out of bed to heavy pounding on the door, it sounded like it was my door and this time I was startled.

As I sat up in bed wondering who could be pounding on my door, I noticed the sound had changed and all I could hear was heavy blows to the wall, it felt like the walls were being broken, so I tip toed out of my room and woke up other occupants in my house and asked them if they had heard anything, they said yes and so we stayed together praying that the sound wasn’t of forced entry.

We listened for what seemed like an eternity and then the pounding stopped,thoughts raised in my head as I tried to make sense of everything. I wondered what the security men were up to that they were so quiet and occupants  of the  other flats if they were deaf  to the strange sounds. I live in a one story building and occupy one of the flats  up, I went round the house praying and checking that it wasn’t thieves.

Immediately, I moved back into my sitting room I heard muffled voices, I listened carefully and realized it was a couple having a fight in one of the flats. I sighed with relief that it wasn’t thieves as I had imagined. But I suddenly became worried, I thought to myself; hope the earlier poundings I heard wasn’t blows being administered to a human body.

Lately, sad tales of violence in the home especially to women and children has been making rounds on the internet, newspapers, and all sorts of media and it is heart breaking that these violent actions are being inflicted by fellow humans, this is a wake up call to everyone, lets arise and fight against violence, speak out and lets end this menace. I pray none of us will be victims of any kind of violence. Ciao
