living life

Most time before I go to sleep, I usually take time to reflect, it can be on anything from what happen that day, on what I would like to do the next , just about anything that comes to my mind. When I am about to go to bed are one of the few times I have quite moment to myself, when I can have sometime to reflect.
Last night, my mind raced back to my first lecture in the university. I will always remember that lecture because my lecturer said something that day that really had me pondering. He said that life is made up of three stages - birth, living and death. Of these three stages we are only conscious of when we are living. As for birth, you surely can’t remember the first thing you saw or how you felt on that graceful day you came to this world. Then for death we surely can’t tell, not for now. So what we are really accountable for is how we live our life. We are not accountable for who our parents are, what religion we are born into or the place of our birth.
So I was pondering be…

love has wing and can fly

Without you, life goes on
You can’t stop time,
But you have made it worthwhile.
You can’t change the weather,
But you have been my comfort.
You can’t change the imperfect world that we live in,
But thank God for people like you who made the imperfection worthwhile.
You are no super woman, you can’t save the world,
But you surely made a difference in my life.
Life may not be a bed of roses,
But with you life is a bliss.
You are no superstar,
But to me you are the only star shining.
You love is true,
As true as the sun rising in the morning.
You love is pure,
As pure as the smile of a baby.
Your love is certain,
As certain as the sun.
To have love you is to know what love really is.
And to have lost your love is to know what it feels like to be loved.
But thank God, I can say I know what true love is.

Love has wing and can fly. Love should not be thrown to wind, it might just fly away.

life is a just employer

Today I took time to reflect on what I posted last on my blog, that’s the difference between the poor and the rich. And I took a look at where I live to study the life of the rich and poor. I came up from my own perspective the difference between the poor and the rich
The rich not only work harder but they also work smarter. The rich are innovative, they move with the time(in this computer age, most of the poor people are not literate)
The rich are good at saving and investing.
the rich are idealistic
The rich are goal getter. They set goals and go for them.
The rich are not lazy. They don’t just sit around all day.
They seek expert advice on what ever venture they go into.
The rich are good risk taker.
The rich had belief in themselves
The rich don’t think impossible , they only see possibility
The rich are opportunist; they take advantage of any slight opportunity that comes their way.

For I have come to understand that life is a fair judge though it may dealt us different cards. But life g…

the attitide of the rich and poor nations

To reflect and . . .act
The difference between the poor countries and the rich countries is not the age of the country.
This can be shown by countries like India and Egypt that are more than 2000 years old and are poor.
On the other hand, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand that are 150 years old are inexpresive, today are developed countries and are rich.
The difference between poor and rich countries does not reside in the available natural resource.
Japan has limited territory, 80% mountainous inadequate for agriculture and cattle raising, but this is the second world economy. The country is like an immense floating factory, importing raw materials from the whole world and exporting manufactured products.
Another sample is Switzerland, which does not plant Cocoa but has the best chocolate of the world. In its territory, they raise animals and plant the soil during four months per year. That enough they produce dairy products of the best quality. It is a small country that transmit an imag…

love nad understanding

To love, to hate are humans emotion. At times I wonder how one goes from love to hate. I had seen it happen many times, when people fall in love and they fall out of love hating each other so much you begin to wonder if these were the people that were so happy with each other.
One thing I had noticed is that when we first fall in love as humans we are blind to many things about our spouse that we see only the reason to be with them. We noticed their beautiful smile, lovely set of teeth, the way they smile etc and all this make you feel happy and want to be with that person. But as time goes on you begin to notice some things in your spouse that you don’t like and if they are not tolerable to you, you begin to dislike your spouse. Of course these are not the only reason why love turns sour; we have the trust issue, the cheating and so on. But it all bound up on not being able to tolerate you r spouse.
Let’s get something right, love is not just the things that make you happy, it’s not ju…

taking check

Its been fourteen days to the new year and I think its too early to check yourself if you are going on about the goals you had set for yourself but I just think I should do a check on what I had done so far and if I had with the goals I set two weeks to the new year.
Prior to the new, I made a promise to myself that I would set a blog site and I would enroll for a programming class two weeks to the new year. That was my short term goal. Well I had started blogging, that’s good, but I had not enrolled for the programming class and come to think of it, there is no good reason why I have not done that. I do hope I don’t want to go on procrastinating like I did last year. So today I will get out and go and register before I do anything else.
I have come to realize to always put things in check, that way you can get things check and be able to know where you are lacking behind. I now write what I want to do on paper, that way I can check myself and I know I must be compel to get them done ju…

देले कैन कोस्ट you

waking today I found that there are a lot of things that I had on my mind to do, but I kept on procrastinating and everything had now piled up to a lot of to dos. But today as I lay in my bed I had decided to start at least from somewhere, and that’s how I got up this morning to write this blog because I had always wanted to start a blog and write at least three times a week.
Procrastination as we know is push forward something you are suppose to do at a certain time or to delay an action that’s is to be taken. And I can tell you it has really adverse effect.
From experience I can tell you that procrastination can make make us to loose out on a lot of things that is supposed to come our way if we had taken action at that time. You can loose that person you love if you don’t tell how you feel about them, you can just keep it in you mind hoping for a opportuned time to let them know - the time is now. Delay is dangerous, time waits for no man, let me give you an instance when I was in jun…

what up with the war

For the past days now CNN had been reporting what is happening in Israel and Gaza, the series of bombing and the effect on lives and properties. I have known this war to be going on for a very long time and I get to wonder if this people had ever known peace and even if they want peace. Its human nature to fight for his/her right and when it feels that its space is being invaded, but it gets to a point when the fight had gone on for so long, one forget what he is fighting for and all you want to do is defeat or hurt your enemy at all cost because you have grown to hate them so much. In my country we have a saying that when two elephant fight, it’s the grass that suffers the most. If the leaders of this nation really care about this people I think they should take a much diplomatic step to solve their differences and compromise a little. When two strong head people collide with each one refusing to compromise, then we can expect destruction. This Israeli- Gaza war is the kind of war co…

chris first entry

Regardless of the reasons we made this choices they are ours and they will play a decisive role in how we live our lives, whether we will be happy or not. Here is a poem I would like you readers to read :


Here's the premise: We are all, right now, living the life we choose.

This choice, of course, is not a single, monumental choice. No one decides, for example, "I'm going to move to L.A., and in five years I will be a waiter in a
so-so restaurant, planning to get my 8-by-10's done real soon so that I can find an agent and become a star," or "I'm going to marry a dreadful person and
we'll live together in a loveless marriage, staying together only for the kids, who I don't much like, either."

No. The choices I'm talking about here are made daily, hourly, moment by moment.

Do we try something new, or stick to the tried-and-true? Do we take a risk, or eat what&…
