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

It’s Ridiculous…!!!!

It’s almost half way through the year 2013 and I haven’t blogged a DAMN word!!! Sorry mate…

Anywhoo, I’m blogging today… Hope all is well…

Just felt to share a little message in regards to something I’ve been noticing this last couple of months. I’ve joined INSTAGRAM, follow me ‘@Margaretta_Allotey‘.. and you know how it goes, you start following people and get a glimpse of their lives, and its all good because its nice to SEE THE WORLD through other people’s eyes, but I’ve been coming across a few RANDOM pages, mainly from the ladies, and the things people are putting out these days is highly QUESTIONABLE… From half naked pictures to relationship status’s, to what you bought from ZARA yesterday, like I said its all good, its a free country but these ladies are the first to complain or make statements like ‘Haters Gonna Hate‘ or ‘Why Is Everyone All Up In My Business’… Erm, why do you think so.. People that expose themselves like that have no right to be talking slack out others talking about them if they are going to come on social network sites and expose themselves on some RIDICULOUS levels… I’ve said this once and I’m going to say it again, I do not have a problem with SOCIAL MEDIA, its all good to me but I know there’s some people out there who are going to say I’m ‘hating’, but lets keep it real, people make ASSUMPTIONS on each other based on what they see, so if your going to be exposing yourself inappropriately on all levels and them people decide to talk negatively about you, what would you expect, what they are saying is based on what you’ve shown them…

Say No More…

Chloe’s Prayer…

I was watching one GHANAIAN film recently and the story line was relationships, the things people do behind closed doors, SECRET lives of their partners, that kinda stuff and half way through the film, this young lady decided to pray to GOD about the kind of man she wanted! HILARIOUS… The thing that stood out to me in this prayer was how SUPERFICIAL her requirements were. I’m not saying I’m a relationship guru, but on a real, if your looking for a life-long partner, some one you can stay committed to and someone who will love and CHERISH you, would you seriously be worried about what car he drives…???
A while back, my mate, her cousin and I had a similar discussion about RELATIONSHIPS and why they fail, why there are so many BABYMOTHERS but not enough WIVES, too many BABYSHOWERS, not enough WEDDINGS… We came to the conclusion that young people these days have to totally BLINDSIDED!!! The way the world is now, young people are being swarmed with images of vanity, riches, a balling LIFESTYLE, which to be honest can only be lived if your names are JAY Z & BEYONCE. Lets be real, having seen how some celebs live you automatically begin to want that lifestyle and if that’s all you see you won’t know any better than to crave that lifestyle, you won’t see anything beyond a person than what they have or I own PHYSICALLY. Ladies, come on, I know everyone wants to be looked after well and provided for, and trust, there’s no shame in that, but have we become a society so WRAPPED up in superficial things that this has become the determinant of whether you commit your life to some or not???
