50 Rules For Daughters .


 


1. The world is starving for strong female leaders. Be one.

2. You may have to work twice as hard as your male contemporaries just to stay even with them. Thankfully this will not be a problem.

3. Beware the boyfriend who criticizes you in front of others.

4. Zero tolerance for the boyfriend or husband who is physically, mentally or emotionally abusive.

5. Those who gossip to you gossip about you.

6. You will be judged by the company you keep.

7. Ninety nine percent of all men have two primary obsessions until the age of 35- sports and sex. Indulge the former, not the latter.

8. If you worship physical beauty, you will never be pretty enough.

9. If you worship money, you will never be rich enough.

10. Spend time alone with God in quiet meditation.

11. Do not ever accept an unsolicited drink.

12. Cultivate and celebrate your femininity but don’t manipulate others with it.

13. Do not make your life a permanent electronic billboard.

14. Live the life that is right in front of you.

15. Do not second guess a thoughtful decision to start a family.

16. Do not subjugate your hopes and dreams to those of your boyfriend or husband.

17. Develop your vocabulary. Refrain from using slang, fad or lazy expressions such as “like” or “awesome” or “absolutely.”

18. You have an intuition. As a man I’m not sure how it works, but it does. Trust it.

19. Do not allow your education to separate you from doing what you love.

20. Cultivate a diverse social network. This will lead to opportunities.

21. For maximum creativity, collaborate with others.

22. Be concise. Be precise.

23. There are always strings attached.

24. No elective plastic surgery. Ever.

25. The most important decision you will make each day is where you will focus your energy and attention.

26. You will always learn more by talking less. You will often say more by talking less.

27. Avoid petty disputes and jealousies. You are above that.

28. A broken heart is the burden you will sometimes bear for the beautiful gift of the capacity to love.

29. Don’t get involved in something unless there’s a way you can make it better.

30. Find mentors early. Be one later.

31. Ask first.  This does not mean get permission. This means be the first to ask.

32. You will not be your ideal you. This means you will just be you-which is even better.

33. Just because someone chooses you does not mean you have to choose them back.

34. You are the only person who should dictate how far you will go.

35. Gracefully accept chivalry.

36. Until they make them as easy to change as shoes, do not get a tattoo.

37. Today’s misfortune will likely turn out to be tomorrow’s blessing.

38.  Making the correct small decisions on a daily basis will allow you to make the correct big decisions.

39. Pause and collect your thoughts before you answer an important question. And try to answer every question in 60 seconds or less.

40. Avoid smoking, cursing and tube tops, especially all three at the same time.

41. Guilt is an unsuitable motivator.

42. If you can make your adversary laugh you will go a long way toward winning them over.

43. When asked your name, state it with confidence. You’ll probably even have to spell it. Likewise, when addressing others, state their name with confidence.

44. Avoid the “opportunity” that is endorsed by a sports metaphor. (i.e. slam dunk, home run, can’t lose).

45. Your body is sacred. Don’t abuse it and don’t let anyone else abuse it.

46. There are going to be occasions when you are going to have to be a real bitch. Choose them wisely and rarely.

47. Even if it seems as though something goes without saying, if it is important to you, say it anyway.

48. Reinforce success.

49. Everyone else has the same fears you have.  What will separate you is the courage to overcome yours.

50. No matter what is in front of you, walk toward it with confidence.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
