Friends are very rare jewels, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed.
They lend an ear, they share words of praise and they always want to open their hearts to us.

As  i grow older now i realise that people are in our lives for a reason and hence a season . At primary school i had many friends, high school i made many more,college even more,now that i am out here in the world as a responsible adult i have met many more . Out of all these lists very few exist in my life anymore ,we have lost touch because we changed,we pursued different courses and each is chasing their dream.

Every time i feel lonely,every time i am challenged by something in my life there is that small voice that talks to me and tells me you need a close friend to confide in,a true friend to listen to you, a real friend who will understand and stand by you no matter what; that person you are vulnerable to because they will not judge you.

As i grapple with building my circle of friends i realise that unless i am that true and real friend then i will not have friends.

 Be a TRUE  friend to have REAL friends.

Today is not yesterday.

Most of the time we sleep running a film of all that happened in a day.When we wake up the film continues.
Imgaine a life where you took a day a time,every day is special,with a new date,new occurences,you meet new people,visit new places,new events happen,something new is invented,new tasks come up,new employees join an organisation,bosses change,new babies are born,every new day comes with everything new.
Thus let yesterday be the past, today the present we focus on and tomorrow a future yet to happen.
Living a day at time makes life simple and sweet

Emotional intelligence

At the verge of a break down,my boss one day told me,your IQ is very high one of the best ,but your problem lies with how you handle your emotions.She went ahead to explain that researchers,writers and scholers are giving alot of emphasis on emotional intelligence as a key player for success in all facets of our lives including careers.This gave me a spark and i would say i am better now,not yet there but the journey is great and with awesome results.
Although  intelligence quotinet(IQ)  is important to success in life, emotional intelligence is key to relating well to others and achieving your goals. Many people believe that emotional intelligence is at least as important as regular intelligence, and many companies now use EI testing to hire new staff.
Emotional intelligence is an awareness of your actions and feelings – and how they affect those around you. It also means that you value others, listen to their wants and needs, and are able to empathize or identify with them on many different levels
What's your emotional intelligence?
