The One…

couples with heart

You know very well, who you are, you’re the only one, you have my heart… And I don’t need no one baby, without you I’m incomplete, our love is just like the bar, put it all in me…
 
It’s so amazing when two people decide to commit themselves to eachother… Love & Relationship is such a GOD-TRAIT… Over the last couple of months I’ve had so many marriage invitations, people are welcoming babies to their families and I’m really enjoying all this LOVE. It’s amazing how you feel when someone decides to take care if you, they have your best interests at heart, they want you well, healthy, you become their PRIORITY, it’s a beautiful feeling and we all DESERVE it!!! That’s what we here for, why it’s such a welcomed feeling and one we all, whether we acknowledge it or not, CRAVE for… There’s nothing wrong with being loved, it’s built in us. God loved us first, He showed us how to love and it’s innate that we keep on loving!!! I believe everyone will feel complete, feel like they have a purpose once they discover what it is to give and receive love.
 
 
But I believe that now, the reason relationships are going wrong, and why there’s so much anxiety surrounding love is because people are scared of being in that VULNERABLE state. Check this situation out, you’re a female and you’ve been approached by someone you see round the way in a regular basis, this guy is now telling you how he’s been watching you for a while, really likes what your about and wants to get to know you… Most ladies may find this a bit creepy, but this guy is really being genuine and wants to do just that – get to know you… This day in age it’s quite rare for a guy to approach a girl in this manner, in my personal experience guys feel they are doing ladies a favor by being with them, they MISTREAT ladies and take total advantage by playing into their EMOTIONS, because of this some ladies become closed and put up a guard which makes it harder for the next guy to really get to know them, which is a shame because that next guy could possibly hold all the traits she is looking for. Because of the ex, the lady is now in a fear state seeing all GUYS as the same and therefore not allowing herself to be vulnerable. Ladies I’m sure we’re all familiar with the saying ‘you have to kiss a few frogs before you find your prince..’ – We need to understand that every experience and relationship we go through is an opportunity to learn about ourselves and ESTABLISH what we will and will not tolerate. They are opportunities to feather out what you really want in a partner and how we want them to make us feel, there’s no point going into a situation blindsided and without experience or purpose, you’ll set yourself up for failure and DISAPPOINTMENT. I have to admit, I’ve been victim of this so many times, but now I know exactly what I want and because I’ve made myself immune to the BS I can recognise the good stuff when I see it.
 
Also this fear of love and fear if vulnerability can come from never experiencing LOVE. You know they say that your childhood stays with you forever, whatever you learn, see and experience as a child molds you and haunts you in your adult life. Sometimes our feelings and a PERCEPTION about certain things derives from what we’ve been exposed to as children and this can become hard to shake because they become EMBEDDED in us. If these are negative associations, lets allow our adult experiences and opportunities to teach us that we may be seeing it all WRONG. This can CHANGE, ideas can CHANGE and how we feel towards live and anything else for that matter can CHANGE.
 
So today, I want to ENCOURAGE ladies and GENTLEMEN to stay open-minded in all relationships, once you know what you’re looking for it will not be hard for you to FIND it. Understand that every EXPERIENCE you go through is a LEARNING CURVE and really take from it an understanding of SELF! Everyone deserves LOVE, whether you are giving it or receiving it, give someone the opportunity to get to know you for who you are, the things you think LEAST about yourself will be the things that make you AMAZING to somebody else.

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!

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

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY..!!!!

Hey guys, hope you’re all doing good..

Today is officially the day of LOVE and spreading love…

Even though is today is a great day and I totally love the idea of showing love, it got me thinking on how funny it is that nowadays society wants to dictate things for us, like how we FEEL, how we TREAT each other and what we should be doing in general…??? We’ve been told when to CELEBRATE Black History (October, UK), when to celebrate our mothers (March), our fathers (June) and even to APPRECIATE and remember Baby Jesus (December) !!!

I think it’s great how we have a day DEDICATED to spreading love, and trust me, I am down for the cause, but I just want to remind everyone that our emotions and how we feel about each other should be expressed accordingling and when we want to express them and in the manner we chose to do this. I believe that if you TRUELY love someone or strongly care about a person, you will automatically express it when you feel to… Right…? There shouldn’t be an ASSIGNED day or way to do it, and quite frankly, if I need to purchase a card from CLINTONS, am I expressing my true passion for someone or am I just blending in with the norm. Throughout life I’ve realised that anything positive, important thing, something which holds any kind of special TIES with your heart and emotions deserves you in the same regard you CHERISH them. If I m passionate about SINGING, I dedicate my time and all my efforts into singing, if I’m passionate about my CAREER, I dedicate every waking day to perfect in it, if I am passionate about my PARTNER, I dedicate every moment we are together to show them how how I feel about them and if I’m passionate about my GOD, I dedicate every breathe I’m blessed with to personify His grace… SIMPLES…

Happy Father’s Day…

On this day, we as fathers are celebrated around the world…

I am more than just a man.. I am a father.

A boy is excited about the opportunity to be a dad.
A father is more focused on the “Responsibility” of being a father.

As a father it is a responsibility to create the standards in our kids’ lives,  I am not just semen. I love you, and you love me and in our family we created “we” in our children…

I am power, I am intelligence, I am education, I am integrity, I am God fearing spirituality,  I am consistent…
As a father, sometimes I have to be away. I am constantly in the field hunting for my family’s survival.

I am king therefore you are my queen. President Obama has created a new standard and removed every excuse a black man could ever have of NOT being a father…

I am more than I appear to be, I am more than just a man.
I….AM….FATHER!!

Fathers… Even though it seems like your effort is sometimes overlooked, God is watching and he knows your heart.

To all of the REAL FATHERS around the world..

Through good, bad or ugly relationships with the mother…
If you are NOT there for your kids, it is ONLY the kids that suffer in the end.

Take a stand and do any means necessary to be a part of your kids lives.
God knows your heart… God bless all FATHERS around the WORLD for Father’s Day!

Salute!!
