A few thoughts

Been one year since i last updated, sheer laziness, nothing else...

I look back this time last year and i'm amazed, God has brought me a loooooooooooooooong way!!!!.... financially, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, name it!, i'm serious, it almost feels surreal. I had lots of battles, but God brought me through it all victoriously. I am filled with thanks, thanks, thanks.

So I wrote an exam a few weeks back and afterwards, came home and cried myself to sleep. Didn't feel i did well, i stuttered, i didn't have answers to all the questions and i felt i had flunked, but guess what?... I passed. In flying colors too. God is amazing, He always shows up for me like that. In my lowest moments and times of weaknesses, He always come through for me. Always.

Have you ever being through an experience that makes you withdraw instantly if you encountered any situation remotely similar to what you experienced? Very wise!. There's no need going through same hurtful experience twice. I recently came across someone who exhibited tendencies of a not-so-good relationship i had in the past, i fled, didn't think twice, couldn't risk that show again

I loooove TV!, when i say TV i mean Shows, comedies;  light hearted stuff that make me laugh. I don't do CSI and the likes, don't need to be reminded of how freaky d world is already **rolls eyes**. And my favorite of the shows is "The Middle"... I love the cast and how crazy & funny the Hecks family is. Patricia Heaton is such a natural actress, i love her humor, never takes herself too seriously. Another great one is "The Goldbergs" eventhough i feel its bit of an imitation of the middle but it still holds its own sha, Love 2 broke girls, Mom, Mindy's project, e.t.c. . I could go on & on about my shows but i'd stop. Just saw "The Best man holiday", it is a must watch!... I don't know if i loved it more because Taye Diggs was in it, or not, but i loved it, was a great movie. Can't wait to see "Black Nativity".... I love holiday movies.

So we've had very crazy winter weather these past few days, had about 6 inches snow this weekend and the thing is still pouring. Oh well, hope it continues tomorrow so we can have another snow day off :) Thinking of travelling down south, anywhere away from this frigid cold... its just December and i'm feeling this way already, three more months of this, oh well!

Nelson Mandela passed away this past week at 95. He will truly be missed, he lived a very fulfilling life, a  great man who set huge examples for us all, he chose to love even in the face of hatred. He was indeed a true leader. Twitter & FB was abuzz with a lot of his quotes and i wondered why they were never this circulated when he was alive. My favorite one is this:

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” 

This rings so trueeeee...... Love is a choice. You choose to love and not hate. In this season of Christmas, let's go out of our way to show love and let someone know how much God loves them...
