BE GLAD YOUR NOSE IS ON YOUR FACE

Be glad your nose is on your face,
not pasted on some other place,
for if it were where it is not,
you might dislike your nose a lot.
Imagine if your precious nose
were sandwiched in between your
toes,
that clearly would not be a treat,
for you’d be forced to smell your
feet.
Your nose would be a source of
dread
were it attached atop your head,
it soon would drive you to
despair,
forever tickled by your hair.
Within your ear, your nose would
be
an absolute catastrophe,
for when you were obliged to
sneeze,
your brain would rattle from the
breeze.
Your nose, instead, through thick
and thin,
remains between your eyes and
chin,
not pasted on some other place–
be glad your nose is on your face!

The day I left The Womb

I used to eat without having to open my mouth, i would dance without music, i would be satisfied always without even nibbling on a bit of a bite. “My life was easy” wait a minute did i have a life? Everything was the same, i did not know the difference between light and darkness, In the womb my eyes were always closed.( I didn’t know they were called eyes until i left the womb) 

I was used to the normal routine then suddenly i was sliding and the moment that followed was for the moment my worst, I cried. i had never cried before, this was something new. I bet i was trying to communicate that i did not like my new environment but all this people did not care. I would tell they did not by the way they were smiling.

To me i was begging to be taken back to my comfort zone, this new environment was cold, full of people and had to much noise. All said and done i appreciated one thing though, my new atmosphere had light, plenty of light. The light fascinated me, people amazed me, i was able to see, my eyes were open. I got to meet people, some loved me others did not, it was clear judging from frowning faces and smiling faces.

Days went buy and i began to adapt, i was on my feet. I would walk on my own, I was ready to take on my new world head-on.

The womb was my comfort zone, it was a cocoon  i had built for myself throughout the years. The day i left the womb my life changed.My eyes opened and i saw light. I developed my intuition. My life went from being a Talker to a Doer. It was hard at first because at this point there was no umbilical cord to feed me, I had to chew in order to get a fill.

The Ten Things Every Woman Must Have Realized at 25

Alyseestheworld

You are at the point in your life where and when you feel that you are 100% an adult. You earn your own money, you support your family, you pay your bills (and have consistently done it on time), you clean your own apartment, you buy your own groceries, you create life-changing thoughts and decisions in your shower (or in the loo, your choice), you do your laundry, you (try to) manage your schedule (juggling work, family, love and recreation) and you are 25.

And then there are moments in being in this quarter of a century that you understand you are at least a little wiser than yesterday and so much more than 365 days ago. You’ve learned that:

1. Family is everything. This is something you’ve heard countless times from your parents and other grownups when you were just a few feet old but you’ve really learned its…

15 Things Ambitious Girls Do A Little Bit Differently When They’re Dating

Thought Catalog

ScandalScandal

1.Their relationship will not take up 100% of their life, but they will put 100% into their relationship. It’s important to ambitious girls to have other priorities and things going on outside of their relationship. But that doesn’t mean they won’t give it their all when it comes to being happy with someone.

2.They’re not looking for a challenge, but they are looking for someone to challenge them. They’re not interested in the chase or winning the game. But they’re interested in being with someone who’s going to challenge them to be better and to grow every day.

3.Romance usually means something different to ambitious girls. They love dates and surprises just like the next girl. But in their minds, the most romantic thing in the world is being with someone who they can truly relate to, and someone who supports them in everything that…

7 BENEFITS OF DATING A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN!

Mark Maish

lipstickalleydotcom“Beautiful women are lousy in bed, prone to cheating and make terrible wives”, is a statement echoed by most men. Does this mean we should overlook pretty ladies when it comes to looking for long-term relationship partners? Since every man likes having beautiful daughters whom do we expect them to marry when we are on the frontline traducing their ilk?  Such parochial beliefs have no place in the modern society! Furthermore, it is utterly incorrect to judge woman’s character purely by how she looks. The following is a list of 7 benefits a guy accrues from dating an exquisite beautiful woman.

What To Wear On A First Date: An Expert Sounds Off on Why It Really Matters

StyleCaster

DatingOutfits

For most of us, getting dressed for a date—especially if it’s a first date, or even a second or a third date—is pretty second nature. A clean shirt, a non-wrinkled dress, a nice pair of shoes all seem like obvious decisions, but do they really matter? As it turns out, what to wear on a first date actually matters a whole lot—more than any of us probably want to admit.

Meaning, will it really affect how your date views you if you’re dressed—or not dressed—a certain way? Are we over-thinking the whole thing? To get to the bottom of the dating-meets-fashion debate, we enlisted Chiara Atik, a dating expert, a blogger for HowAboutWe.comand author of “Modern Dating: A Field Guide,” and asked her this question: Does what you wear on a first date really matter?

Chiara’s answer? A resounding yes. Read through her insights…

YOU’RE A GREAT MAN WHEN…………..

I was reading a post the other day on http://lifeteen.com/youre-a-great-man-29-catholic-girls-explain-why/ and I really got inspired by what the ladies had to say. This is not my original post; I just thought I should share what I read with people on my blog…

“You’re a great man when you make bold sacrifices.” – Leah M.

“You’re a great man when you remember to greet my friends and family members when we’re out together. That simple hello says a lot about your character!” – Erin H.

“You’re a great man when you inspire me to be a better person by the way you live each day. When you work out not for vanity’s sake, but so you can be the strength I lean on. And after all, what’s the point of triceps if you’re not using them to lift the old woman’s suitcase into the overhead compartment on the airplane? I want you to know that more than any compliments or courtesy’s you show to me, I watch the way you treat the cashier, the waitress, your little sister. The little moments of you being an authentic man of God in the small everyday ways, those are the ones that count.” – Maureen M.

“You are a great man when you show love for the Blessed Mother.” – Casey O.

“You’re a great man when you offer to help strangers, bear frustrations patiently, and hold yourself accountable as a leader and protector.” – Emily A.

“You’re a great man of God when you help me see and love in myself, what God the Father beholds every time He sees me. You are a great man when you reveal to me, that which I cannot see in myself.” – Maddy B.

“When you drive to my house before going to work in the morning to leave a love note and rose in the car door handle.” – Joan N.

“You’re a great man when you are intelligent, clear-spoken, and don’t keep me guessing what your intentions are.” – Jessica S.

“You’re a great man when you seek holiness more than attention, sainthood more than popularity and the Lord’s will more than your own.” – Kristina P

“You’re a great man when you keep your relationship with God as your number one priority, and find all your confidence in Him. You’re a great man when you let Him guide your steps, and walk boldly in the direction He leads you. You’re a great man when you are clear and considerate with my heart. And you’re a great man when you plan and execute a fun date!” – Rachel A.

You’re a great man when you are a servant leader. I am so thankful when men are decisive, confident, and intentional. – Meg M.

“You’re a great man when you protect the women in your life without seeking to control them.” – Rachel J.

“You’re a great man when you bow before the Eucharist.” – Lily H.

“You’re a great man when you’re not afraid of using your strengths… when you are not afraid of what other people might think about your boldness in letting your light shine instead of being mediocre like everyone else. When you do that, you give the other men and even the ladies in your life permission to be themselves, too.” – Emily P.

“You’re a great man when you pray for your future wife. She just might be praying for you too.” – Olivia M.

“You’re a great man when you reject passivity and actively strive to live as an authentic disciple and when you desire heaven more than earthly things.” – Colleen S.

“You’re a great man when you carry your cross with joy and laughter.” – Gaby P.

“You’re a great man when I can tell that you’re interested in and paying attention to what I’m saying and can carry on a conversation. Not because you’re interested in pursuing me, but because you respect me as a person.” – Casey H.

“You’re a great man when you advocate for the dignity of women… When you refuse to accept societal norms like casual hook-ups, pornography and abortion but rather encourage women to see their true beauty as daughters of God.” – Amanda A.

“You’re a great man when you don’t mind the smell of nail polish at all. (All the boys in Ike’s band let me paint my nails in the tour van — amazing!!) You’re a great man when you know that all the strength you need is the strength that comes from being rooted in Christ.” – Emily W.

“You’re a great man when you are not afraid to show how you feel and to share your thoughts and heart with me.” – Amanda G.

“You’re a great man when you speak passionately and positively about what is important to you no matter what others may think… when you cook, grill, roast, CREATE, and make something.” – Kaitlin B.

“You’re a great man when you keep the romance alive in our marriage in the little ways, like when you watch all 7 kids so that I can get out of the house and have some alone time… when you let me sleep in and bring me breakfast in bed at 11:30am… and when you clean the kitchen after dinner even though I know you hate doing dishes… and when you call me every single day after work to ask me if I need anything from the store.” Mary S.

“You’re a great man when you sing badly so I have the confidence to sing in all my off-key glory.” – Corinne M.

“You’re a great man when you are vulnerable to God’s love.” – Alexandra E

“You’re a great man when you ask me to pray with you, and know the lyrics to my favorite song.” – Patty T.

“You’re a great man when you make God the center of your life over me, choose to do God’s will over mine, and trust God more than you trust yourself. And a good sense of humor is essential!” – Anne W.

“You’re a great man when you decide to do what’s right, rather than what is easy. When you respect a woman’s boundaries, not just because she has set them, but because you desire them as well.” Erika R.

“You’re a great man when your personal need for masculine dominance is second to the universal necessity of justice and compassion.” – Margaret S.

PRINCIPLES OF SUCCESSFUL SELF-GROWTH

 

THE CHOICE TO GROW IS YOURS

“How many therapists does it take to change a light bulb?” – Only one. But the light bulb has to want to change.

People must make the choice to change and take full responsibility for their circumstances.

Change starts from within. If you don’t work toward taking 100% control over your life you will not see significant progress.

LEARN TO TAKE RISKS

Learning to take risks means stepping outside your comfort zone and experiencing something totally new. Excitement in life comes from taking risks and working to transform yourself into the person you want to be. Most people love to travel the world for the fact that it’s such a growth provoking experience, you’re seeing new and exciting place and able to grow as a overall person.

UNDERSTAND YOUR VALUES

One way to learn more about your values and purpose is to create your own personal mission statement.

Ask yourself:

What do I value most in life?

What is my life’s person?

What legacy do I want to leave?

List the answer to these questions to get a clearer understanding of what type of life you want to lead.

MAKE IT HAPPEN

If you’ve written your mission statement you’re more self-aware and understand what you want from your personal development. Now you need to make sure to follow through and make it happen by having discipline and self-control.

MAINTAIN A POSITIVE ATTITUDE

With a positive attitude we can seek growth in everything we do. We’ll have more energy and enthusiasm, and naturally look toward what we can learn and gain from unexpected situations. We’ll keep an excited perspective toward new experiences and be willing to work past set-backs.
