THIS IS LIFE – WORTH READING

{ a} Never discuss your problems with everyone, 20% will not care and 80% will be glad that you have them.

{b} Life is similar to a boxing game. Defeat is not declared when you fall down. It is declared when you refuse to get up.

{c} It is always the wrong people who teach the right lesson in life. That is called life experience.

{d} Everything is valuable only on two occasions: [1] Before getting it and [ 2] After getting it

{e} Two places are most valuable in the world: [1] The nicest place is to be in someone’s thoughts and [ 2 ] The safest place is to be in someone’s prayers.

{f} Fear has two meanings: [1 ] Forget everything and run and [2] Face everything and rejoice. The choice is ours.

{g} EGO is the only requirement which destroys any relationship. Be a bigger person,skip the ‘E’ and let it ‘GO’.

{h}As long as we do not forgive people who have hurt us, they occupy a Rent-Free space in our mind.

{i} I asked God: If everything is already written in destiny, then why should i pray? God smiled and said: I have also written ‘ Conditions Apply’.

{j} Empty pockets teach millions of things in life. But full pockets spoil us in million ways.

{k} Trust is like a sticker. Once it is removed, it may stick again but not as strong as it holds when you first applied.

{l} Never win people with arguments. Rather defeat them with your smile. Because people who always wish to argue with you, cannot bear your silence.

{m} Memories are always special. Sometimes, we laugh by remembering the days we cried and sometimes we cry by remembering the days we laughed. That’s life.

BE HUMBLE AT ALL TIMES

No matter how big your house is,how recent your car is,or how big your bank account is, the grave is still the same size, therefore humility should be the watch word. Don’t exit any relationship by banging the door behind you. You may need each other again in a different arena. Human beings are different people at different times. A managing director may be just a church member when he gets to church. The pastor will be a customer when he enters the bank. The C.E.O. is a husband at home. Be humble at all times. 

When people hurt you over and over, think of them as sandpaper. They scratch and hurt you, but in the end, you are polished,and they are useless. Stay blessed.

Have a wonderful wednesday.

THE BLACKMAILER

The text on Josh Hammond’s BlackBerry was blunt and chilling.If you don’t pay me £250,­000.­00 in the next 48 Hours you will die”. Surely it must be a joke, but when Josh is attacked in broad daylight and people around him start to die he knows that his blackmailer is deadly serious. Can Josh raise the money? Can his attractive new bodyguard protect him? Who is blackmailing him and why? He has 48 hours to find out.

TEN WORDS OF WISDOM

1] ON LEARNING: Never depend on single income.Make investment to create a second chance.

2} ON SPENDING: If you buy things you do not need, soon you will have to sell things you need.

3} ON SAVINGS: Do not save what is left after spending, but spend what is left after saving.

4} ON TAKING RISK: Never test the depth of a river with both feet.

5} ON INVESTMENT: Do not put all eggs in one basket.

6} ON EXPECTATIONS: Honesty is a very expensive gift.Do not expect it from cheap people.

7} Past is a waste paper, present is a newspaper, and future is a question paper.Come out of your past, control the present, and secure the future.

8} When bad things happen in your life, you have three choices.You can either let it define you, let it destroy you or you can let it strengthen you.

9} Our eyes are in the front because it is more important to look ahead than to look backwards.

10} We use pencil when we were young, but now we use pens.Do you know why? Because mistakes in childhood can easily be erased, unlike now.

GOOD MORNING.

JUST BECAUSE I’M A WOMAN – DOLLY PARTON

I can see you’re disappointed
By the way you look at me
And I’m sorry that I’m not
The woman you thought Id be

Yes, I’ve made my mistakes
But listen and understand
My mistakes are no worse than yours
Just because I’m a woman

So when you look at me
Dont feel sorry for yourself
Just think of all the shame
You might have brought somebody else

Just let me tell you this
Then well both know where we stand
My mistakes are no worse than yours
Just because I’m a woman

Now a man will take a good girl
And hell ruin her reputation
But when he wants to marry
Well, that’s a different situation

Hell just walk off and leave her
To do the best she can
While he looks for an angel
To wear his wedding band

Now I know that I’m no angel
If that’s what you thought you’d found
I was just the victim of
A man that let me down

Yes, I’ve made my mistakes
But listen and understand
My mistakes are no worse than yours
Just because I’m a woman

No, my mistakes are no worse than yours
Just because I’m a woman

 DOLLY PARTON IS JUST AWESOME. 

THROW BACK THURSDAY CYNDI LAUPER – TIME AFTER TIME

Lying in my bed I hear the clock tick,
And think of you
Caught up in circles
Confusion is nothing new
Flashback, warm nights
Almost left behind
Suitcases of memories,
Time after

Sometimes you picture me
I’m walking too far ahead
You’re calling to me, I can’t hear
What you’ve said
Then you say, go slow
I fall behind
The second hand unwinds

If you’re lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I will be waiting
Time after time

If you’re lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I will be waiting
Time after time

After my picture fades and darkness has
Turned to gray
Watching through windows
You’re wondering if I’m okay
Secrets stolen from deep inside
The drum beats out of time

If you’re lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I will be waiting
Time after time

You said go slow
I fall behind
The second hand unwinds

If you’re lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I’ll be waiting
Time after time

If you’re lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I’ll be waiting

Time after time
Time after time
Time after time
Time after time
Time after time
Time after time
Time after time
Time after
Time

TWO HUSBANDS FOUR TRIALS

In January 1889,Louisa Collins,a 41-year-old mother of ten children,became the first woman hanged at Darlinghurst Gaol and the last woman hanged in New South Wales.Both of Louisa’s husbands died suddenly.The Crown was convinced that Louisa poisoned them with arsenic and, to the horror of many in the legal community,put her on trial an extraordinary FOUR tIMES in order to get a conviction.Louisa protested her innocence until the end.

Much of the evidence against Louisa was circumstantial.Some of the most important testimony was given by her only daughter,May,who was just 10-years-old when asked to take the stand.The historical context is also important: Louisa Collins was hanged at a time when women were in no sense equal under the law except when it came to the gallows.Women could not vote or stand for parliament or sit on juries.There were no female politicians and no women judges.Against this background,a small group of women rose up to try to save Louisa’s life,arguing that a legal system comprised only of men male judges,all-male jury,male prosecutor,governor and Premier could not with any integrity hang a woman.the tenacity of these women would not save Louisa but it would ultimately carry women from their homes all the way to Parliament House.Less than 15 years after Louisa was hanged.Australian women would become some of the first in the world to get the vote. they would take seats in State parliament,and in Canberra they would become doctors,lawyers,judges,premiers even the Prime Minister.

From the Author,CAROLINE OVERINGTON : My hope is that Last Woman Hanged will be read not only as a true crime story but as a letter of profound thanks to that generation of women who fought so hard for the rights we still enjoy today.’

NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE

No mechanic can repair breaking news.

No matter how tall you are,you can never see tomorrow.

Whatever your weight,your steps can’t break the ground.

Even if you have millions of cars,you still have to walk to your bedroom.

Being the best swimmer doesn’t make you a fish.

The whitest man on earth still has a black shadow.

The strongest man on earth can never carry a mountain.

The smartest assassin on earth can never kill the devil.

No matter how smart a police is,he can never catch the air.

No matter who you are,you still and always will need God in your life and we need each other ( God’s creation ) to survive.Life’s too short,so make time to serve your Creator and love Humanity. Stay Humble and Stay Blessed.
