I Know Your Secret…

20130521-234644.jpg

So… A while back some mates of mine told me about a book which called THE SECRET… I understood it to be very popular and from what I had seen online there was also a film based on it. So I picked up the book and read I within a few days. The book FOCUS’ on our attitude towards the world and how we perceive ourselves, it’s main purpose is to teach us to understand that our world and what we go through in life is DETERMINED my our MINDS and our THOUGHTS… ‘You have to speak you life into existence’… The author stated that whatever we want to BE, whatever we want to ACHIEVE, our EXPERIENCES or want to PRODUCE, we have to physically say it, believe and live our life as if you already have it. While hoping for OURSELVES you should spread love in all ways possible, no matter how big or how small the gesture, in all you do do with love, unselfishness and with a GRATEFUL heart. I think that’s deep!

Deep because I’m a CHRISTIAN, I believe in God, I believe GOD IS LOVE. Reading the book I noticed so many similarities between The Secret and the principles I read about in my Bible. Change your thoughts and change your world – RENEW YOUR MIND. The Bible tells us that we are made in God’s image and that we must have faith in all we do, this starts with the way we think about ourselves. As individuals we need to understand that we are CAPABLE of it all, whatever you can dream, you can achieve… Your dream along with a little bit of faith and belief is incomprehensible…

The Secret also spoke about vocalising and COMMUNICATING to the universe the things you want out of life. I believe that the universe represents God, but this can vary depending on your personal beliefs. As a Christian I communicate to God through PRAYER, I let Him know my thoughts and feelings, my dreams and ASPIRATIONS, this conversation is done through out the day and as a say the words I believe that they will come to pass…

God is Love! That’s MAJOR! The Secret spoke about spreading love in all ways possible, this starts with your attitude, loving yourself REFLECTS on how you treat others. The Bible teaches us to love our neighbours and in all things we do we should go with love. The same principle was reflected in The Secret, it’s amazing how science has proven what God has been teaching us all this TIME. And the surprising thing is, is that both elements agree on the most basic principles, methods which are FREE to us all and need no teaching; WE just simply need to understand what you want out if this life, ASK for it and BELIEVE we will RECIEVE it.

GREAT STUFF!

Get On The Bus…


Get On The Bus

Ummmm… Better catch a cab, get on the bus…!!!

Ok, so at my tender age of 20 & some change, you know I’ve had my experiences (some I’d rather forget) with the opposite sex. I was just sitting down the other day and thinking about my previous’ relationships and the nonsense us females have to deal with… Fast forward because I don’t have time to go through all the issues but I realised that a lot of the time people, no actually FEMALES get taken advantage of in relationships and this because they don’t understand their SELF-WORTH! It’s extremely important to KNOW YOUR PLACE in any situation especially those of relationships because if not you can easily be taken ADVANTAGE of and misused, and trust me you will not know what hit you once your situation had gone sour. Not understanding your place sets you up for HURT, you begin to feel like you FAILED, like you’ve just become someones past time, of no PURPOSE and disappointed! During my younger days, when I first started dating I didn’t have a clue as to what I wanted out of my relationships, I didn’t know what I was BRINGING to my relationships, I didn’t know what kind of person I wanted to date or why I even wanted to date them… These were all messed up relationships, they brought NO GROWTH, nothing but stress the feeling if disappointment and REJECTION… It’s a hard place to be at when you’re new, inexperienced and IMMATURE. The biggest lesson I’ve learnt in growing up is how important it is to know what you want and STICK TO YOUR GUNS, it keeps you STRONG minded, it gives you AMMUNITION when you have to defend yourself, it allows you not fall in the face of ADVERSITY and most importantly, it gives you MORALS (one thing most people lack today), benchmarking how much BULLSHIT you are willing to take!!!

So if your not sure and confused about what you want, don’t venture into the path of the unknown… Understand your needs and aim to meet them… If you end up in a place where you can’t be yourself or you feel like your not gaining what you desire, tell the person to get on the bus cos ain’t nobody got time for that… Lol…

It’s Your Birthday…

party

“Go shawty, it’s your birthday…

Well I’m sure is someone’s birthday but even if it isn’t yours I want you to adapt the ‘its my birthday’ attitude… Lol… This mornings workout is just simply to encourage you to stay POSITIVE and look forward to the good things ahead. For most people, including myself, a BIRTHDAY marks a new beginning, another chance, an opportunity to do something you’ve never done before. It’s a STAMP for a beginning of a new chapter… But why should we only get this opportunity, this chance once a year… Everyday should be a new chapter… In itself a new day is a blessing, not everybody woke up this morning, we learn that tomorrow isn’t PROMISED so if you’ve been privileged to wake up this morning why not live it like your last!!! Do something new, strike up a conversation which that person that gets on your train everyday, wear that dress or shirt you’ve been saving for that special occasion, go to that restaurant you’ve been eyeing up for the past week, approach that person you fancy and EMBRACE everything that the day brings…!!!! This birthday spirit is solely about positive vibes and embracing self… So even if it isn’t your birthday why not let it be, just for today… ” – ENJOY

She Bad Bad…

Hey Lovlies

Hope all is well…

Well well well, as usual my week has been hectic, galavanting left right and center doing stuff, finally found a minute to put pen to paper! I was reading a daily devotional by JOYCE MEYER the other day and it really hit the spot for me.  I recently had a bust up with someone I had known since I was 11 (I’m now 26). We weren’t the best of FRIENDS, but we always had a good time when we met up and we spoke deep about certain situations, so I thought we were on a MUTUAL level. Well, I wont go into details in what the bust up was about, but the situation ended with us basically not speaking or hanging out as much. I was kinda surprised at her reaction after the situation because I was still open to carry on as usual but she took a step back… Anyway, I learnt a great deal from the situation and the one thing that stood out to me was how important being HONEST and TRUTHFUL is.

In Joyce Meyer’s DEVOTIONAL piece she talked about being honest and open with the people around you, she said that the reason people respected her so much as because she didn’t build fake impression about the kind of person she was, if she was going through a tough time people knew, if she had done something wrong, SINNED, people knew, through her joys and mishaps she was not afraid to let people know, and I really RESPECTED that!!! In my situation, I made a mistake and was open to express that you my mate, when we were having the bust up, I let her know all this, there was another person involved who lied their way through, to be FRANK that absolutely PISSED me off, I cant stand liars!!! And to top it of my mate thought I was the one telling porky-pies, and sided with the other person. I remember getting opinions from some of my male and female friends and they more or less said the same thing; if you’ve told the truth, you have nothing to worry about, its the liars who will have to deal with the guilt in their conscience… – That just made so much sense, and it was so true!!!

So my message this MONDAY MORNING is to keep it 100!!! Liars are not respected, those who are open and not afraid to admit their flaws are. I chose this song for our Monday Morning Workout because it just highlighted being confident with what you got, we’re all bad-asses in our own right and that’s what makes us INDIVIDUAL and UNIQUE. Lying and pretending to be something you are not will just cause you STRESS, and to top it off, no one will ever get to witness your value if you pretend to be something you are not.

Monday Morning Workout…

Hey guys, hope all is well… I’m so sorry for the unplanned hiatus, but God willing, I’m definitely back!!!

Quick message and motivation to accompany my morning/afternoon workout, just wanna encourage everyone to stay true and FOCUSED on what they’ve decided to pursue. I believe in all things you do, you should do with LOVE. I feel that even though I’m in a position where I don’t wanna be CAREER-wise, its the right POSITION for me to be in at this time in order to make my DREAM today a reality TOMORROW.

Recently I’ve been working like a dog for personal reasons and also to pay bills, and sometimes you wonder whether or not it’s all worth it, and you know what… IT IS..! Through traveling, learning and finding myself, I’ve come to realise that everything I’m doing now is for my benefit, nowadays I don’t CO-SIGN on things which will not benefit me in the LONG run. I’m not being selfish in that RESPECT, because I know is someone asks you for help, you should try your best to help them out, what I mean is that if I do something, I want to do it so well that in the long run I reap the benefits, whether it be establishing GREAT and PROSPEROUS relationships, MONETARY benefits and in some cases even EMOTIONAL benefits. And how will I do that I hear you say… THROUGH LOVE…
The bible tells us that when we do things, we should do it ‘with love‘. This is not because us believers are stupid and gullible… LOL… It’s because when you do something out of pure KINDNESS, to the BEST of your ABILITY, with a OPEN-MIND and without regret or doubt, you put yourself in a position where you gain unquestionable FAVOUR and thus, provisions are made for you… IJN.

I know this is totally off the subject, but I really wanted to share this song… I thought I’d kick-start my return to the Workout Sessions with a song my cousin in GHANA brought me into. I didn’t know Sway was going on like that, but we thank GOD cos its a very big tune and extremely catchy. It has a bit of a funky beat, fused with some AFRO-BEAT flows, great morning/afternoon motivator…. ENJOY
