Choose Your Battles Wisely

 A thought for the weekend,a good insight into the new month

“Choose your battles wisely. After all, life isn't measured by how many times you stood up to fight. It's not winning battles that makes you happy, but it's how many times you turned away and chose to look into a better direction. Life is too short to spend it on warring. Fight only the most, most, most important ones, let the rest go.”

When a Friendship Dies

In life not all situations allow us to make lemonade from lemons.Like when a friendship ends with no known reason.That time in your life when a door slams in the heart to a dead friendship;this is one thing that really hurts(i believe am not the only one who feels this way).

I am not talking about those friendships of proximity,you know the ones that formed because we went to the same church,we lived in the same neighborhood,went to the same school and shared classrooms . These friends were important and sometimes i miss them especially when this adult life gets lonely(it does sometimes)

I remember one friend from primary school,we shared a seat since she joined our school in class five,we went to different high schools but still kept in touch,fate brought us together once again,we went to the same college.I  was a happy girl(happy that life had brought my friend back to proximity) but our connection this time had gone .As i went through college i always wondered why she choose different friends,for some reason,our choices changed,from the courses we took,our friends and lifestyles and even after college despite trying to reunite again,it has not worked-i miss her a lot but it does not hurt -we took different  paths hence the drifting,

What keeps me wondering  is the end of a  mature friendship,that one person who became my life sister(brother). The one i told all those personal stories.When such a friend suddenly leaves its like losing an arm.You know waking up one day and they are gone,no goodbye,no explanation and all the questions that follow.What did i do wrong? Did is say something that i was not meant to say? Its even worse when you query them and all they say, there is no problem.Yet the drift is visible,she never calls or receives a call,not even a whats up,texts and emails go unanswered.....These are the friendships that hurt,ending without an explanation,without a goodbye, yet this person had crossed the line,you thought they were here for the whole stretch, to the rest of our lives.

Trying to understand the human psychology in ending friendships without a goodbye.(huh). Personally closure is very important for me ,I believe its important for all us .

Follow your Purpose

''Never forget the importance of living with unbridled
exhilaration. Never neglect to see the exquisite beauty in all
living things. Today, and this very moment, is a gift. Stay
focused on your purpose. The Universe will take care of
everything else.''

Make mistakes

It's important to be willing to make mistakes. 
The worst thing that can happen is you become memorable.

Sara Blakely

Insights into this:

I have made many mistakes in my life ; I once went into an interview room without the slightest  idea what the organization was about. Of course i never clinched that job but that was a mistake that taught me a valuable lesson.

What mistakes have you made  in your life,what were the lessons?

They say the way to true happiness is finding ones passion. I guess that’s the reason I am actually writing, they are things that just tick with me and I would love to express them as I journey to my destiny.
Some one said, ‘’to find your passion write the top five things that you love in  life, navigate through them and there in ,you will discover the one that works for you’’
Sounds simple right? The hard part for most us is finding that passion, I hope to discover mine soon as I pen my thoughts and insights down (to be a …..)

Let’s discover and follow our passions; we all want to be happy.

Simple Money Management

A good budget has five key considerations:
  1. Giving back-could be tithing for the religious or charity work. Beginning here shows you trust in divinity more than the money itself.
  2. Savings and Investments-this is the only sure way to ever become wealthy
  3. Taxes-you got to be responsible, every government relies on taxes to survive
  4. Fixed Expenses. This includes things like mortgage, utilities, cars, etc.
  5. Discretionary Spending This includes entertainment, clothes, furniture, etc.
There we have it- basic money management.

Early Wake-Up as a Key to Success;

It is a definite way to have a head start on any ones day. Get what you want accomplished before you’re too busy to remember what you wanted to do.
An early rise gives you enough time to evaluate whatever information is on your plate by yourself before you read or hear any analysis.
Most C.E.O ‘S, world wide are known to be early risers, to work out, read or respond to emails (may be one character of successful people)hence if you are aspiring to be a C.E.O you got to be ahead of the others even your current boss, hence be an early riser.
It makes a definite adjustment to early schedules and saves on constant playing catch-up.

Being Independent

“It is the business of the very few to be independent; it is a privilege of the strong. And whoever attempts it, even with the best right, but without being OBLIGED to do so, proves that he is probably not only strong, but also daring beyond measure. He enters into a labyrinth, he multiplies a thousandfold the dangers which life in itself already brings with it; not the least of which is that no one can see how and where he loses his way, becomes isolated, and is torn piecemeal by some minotaur of conscience. Supposing such a one comes to grief, it is so far from the comprehension of men that they neither feel it, nor sympathize with it. And he cannot any longer go back! He cannot even go back again to the sympathy of men!”

Friedrich Nietzsche
