TGIF 3.1

       I am grateful for rest. Having undertaken tedious responsibilities that have deprived me of good sleep and rest for the past one month, I have come to appreciate rest and sleep. If you are able to lie down on your bed and sleep without having to count sheep or romance the 4 corners of your bed due to constant turning—be grateful cos not everyone is able to do so.

       I am grateful for “teachable spirit/personality”. Most people consciously or unconsciously consider themselves above learning; they may assume they are too learned or too learned for some people. I have come to appreciate the ability to learn from anything and anyone. This past week, I have learned the following lessons;

–          Never confide in someone who has never been through something, else they would not understand and they will turn around to judge you.

–          That you live in a better house, have a better job, have more money—that don’t mean you are a better person than me

–          Children/teenagers are genetically impatient—as a parent, if you understand this, you will save yourself days and hours of frustration. To understand children, you have to come to their level.

–          Every human being changes with time—whether for good or for bad, whether for a second or days, whether consciously or unconsciously, whether hormonally charged or not. We are changed by one thing or the other, which is why its said ‘change is the one constant thing in life”

–          We never stop learning; only a dead man would consider not learning—Relationship is akin to education/getting degrees/learning; the knowledge you have of your partner is related to the level you are in. When you get married to your spouse, you may have achieved a bachelors degree in that relationship, but the ability to achieve a masters or PhD in that relationship, is based on the amount of work/time/energy you put into it and into learning your partner.

           I am grateful for every happy person out there; anyone who has an opportunity to be grateful or happy—happiness is relative and it’s a decision. I choose to be happy today, what about you?

         I came across this clip, I thought it was funny, but not very many people may get the joke except you are used to being chased by telemarketers or sales reps;  Have a wonderful weekend y’all!!!
