STUPIDITY KNOWS NO BOUNDS BY JOSEPHINE OSEI BONSU

                       I AM SICK OF THESE MORONIC BEHAVIORS

 

NUDITY IN PUBLIC: I knew there were stupid people living among us but i didn’t know they were this many. We now live in a world where most women and men think that the word SEXY means Showing your Nakedness to the WORLD. Especially women who are supposed to be role models go out with half-size of a handkerchief covering their nipple and they call that a dress and the worst of all, they go out there wearing see through gowns and sometimes  without any underwear.( WHAT IN THE HECK IS THAT ). I hear some people saying that you have to love your body ” Yes I agree with that ” and be able to show it off but to whom and where is very important? And to think that most of them are married and some have children and their stupid husbands are Ok with it so they even takes them to public events with those rags on.I know you must love your women but really? Why don’t you all go out totally naked ( I mean with nothing on? ) After all,  we came to this world naked.       Continue reading

THE FRIEND I MET IN JAIL BY JOSEPHINE OSEI BONSU

What I Used To Think Of Jail Until I Met A New Friend

 

A picture from a jail cell

THE CRIME I COMMITTED

My crime was that, I stood in as a guarantor for a friend to secure a bank loan and she ended up not paying all the amount that required of her. And I had no idea that this was going on until the bank called notifying me to come over. I went there the next day thinking I could have some agreement with them to pay whiles I look for my friend.

As I entered the bank managers office, I got introduced to two detectives who will be taking me into custody unless I pay up the remaining balance that day or I tell them where they can find my friend and arrest her instead. I couldn’t believe this was happening until I was behind bars. This was where I met a new friend Achaa.

THE INMATE

There was a woman who had been there for two days over domestic issues and her name was Achaa. She was stronger than I was because it was my first time to sleep alone without my child beside me. It was very difficult as a mother. She did her best to cheer me up throughout the night but I couldn’t sleep. She told me she would be released the next day and that made me more sad because I was going be left alone in the police cells and I know that’s not a place anyone even for a minute, but I wished within me that she would be spending some few days more with me.

TWO WEEKS IN JAIL

I spent two weeks in jail and sworn not to befriend anyone nor do good to anyone for that matter. Because I ended up in jail by helping out a friend. The cold nights, loneliness and the fact that it was Christmas holidays and I wasn’t at home celebrating with my family especially not being able to celebrate with my child, that really broke my heart.

ACHAA THE NEW FRIEND

Achaa changed my decision on friendship again when she visited me and brought along food,clothes,pillow and blankets since I had to sleep on the bare cold floor because there was nothing to sleep on. She ended up helping me to pay part of the amount and she was there when I released. Then I remembered something my grandma used to tell us, ” everything happen for a reason “. I never thought that being betrayed by someone who was a dear friend could help me find another wonderful and kind-hearted person who has now become like sister to me till date.

THE LESSON

Spending time in jail has thought me not to judge quickly and not everyone who ends up in jail is guilty or a bad person. Rather,the innocent are victims of circumstances like myself and you are likely to meet some of the lifelong friends at the unusual places.

LIFE LESSONS AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT BY BISHOP DR. AKWASI KWARTENG

A giant tree with the sunlight shinning through its branches in California, USA

Life is a game that has no return match.
Life is not a sprint but marathon.
Life is full of choices so make a choice that impact life positively.

A humble person is the one who remains the same under all circumstances.

The world suffers a lot not because of violence of bad people but silence of good people.

Any tree that beautifies overnight dies early but the one that takes time to beautify lasts.

Man’s greatest enemy is judgment of men.

Don’t allow anyone to walk through your mind with their filthy feet.

Tension is who you think you should but relaxation is who you are.

The beautiful road of I don’t care will lead you to the ugly city of had I known.

You embrace the servant called failure when you refuse to hug the king called truth.

The most unhappy person in life is the one whose mind is filled up with the thoughts and what others think of them.

Is better be slow and sure than to rush and crush.

When you find yourself on the side of the most, you get to pause and show.

A secret told is like a seed sowed, it grows and bears fruits to the ears of many.

LOVE WHO YOU ARE BY JOSEPHINE OSEI

Be who you are

The Rabbit runs, jumps, moves faster and lives for only fifteen ( 15 ) years whiles the Tortoise doesn’t even attempt any of such activities but lives for one hundred and fifty ( 150 ) years or more?

Life is not about rushing, comparing and doing what everybody else is doing but rather keep calm and do what is right. The Rabbit and the Tortoise may live in the same forest and play together but have different life expectancy.

We must remember that we will have age mates, class mates, school mates, office mates but there are no ” Destiny Mates ” in life. Discover your inner genius and influence people with it in a positive way. Be who you are, love who you are and thank God for your special journey which may not look like others.

Stay blessed.

SUCCEED WITH SMILE AND SILENCE

Smile and silence

Successful people have two things on their lips ” Smile and Silence “. A Smile can solve problems, whiles Silence can avoid problems. Sugar and Salt might be mixed together but ants rejects the Salt and carry away only the Sugar.

Select the right people in life and make your life better and sweet. If you fail to meet your dreams, change your ways not your God. Remember, trees change their leaves sometimes but not their roots.

WHO IS A WOMAN

Who Is A Woman By Josbons

( A conversation Between God And An Angel )

When God created woman, he was working late on the sixth day…. An angel came by and asked:

ANGEL: Why spend so much time on her lord?

GOD: Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her?
1. She must function on all kinds of situations.
2. She could be able to embrace several kids at the same time and have a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart.
3. She must do all this with only two hands. She cures herself when sick and can work eighteen hours a day.

The angel amazed, so he asked,

ANGEL: Just two hands… impossible, and this is the standard model?

The angel went closer and touched the woman and said… But you have made her so soft Lord.

GOD: Yes, but I have made her strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome.

ANGEL: Can she think?

GOD: Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate.

The Angel touched her cheeks and said, Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! you have put too many burdens on her.

GOD: She is not leaking. It is a tear. The Lord corrected the Angel.

ANGEL: What is it for?

GOD: Tears are her way of expressing her grief, doubts, love, suffering and pride.

This made a big impressions on the Angel. So he said… Lord, you are a genius. You thought of everything. A woman is marvellous.

GOD: Indeed she is.
a. She has strength that amazes a man.
b. She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.
c. She holds happiness, love and opinions.
d. She smiles when she feels like screaming. e. She sings when she feels like crying, cries when happy and laughs when afraid.
f. She fights for what she believes in.
g. Her love is unconditional.
h. Her finds strength to get in with life when her heart gets broken.

ANGEL: So she is a perfect being?

GOD: No. She has just one drawback. She often forgets what she is worth.

So, if you are a woman, know your worth and be proud of who you are.

THE OTHER WIFE BY KATHLEEN IRENE PATERKA

The Other Wife By Kathleen Irene Paterka

( The Man Who Lived A Double Life With Two Women )

Eleanor has a beautiful home, a successful marriage of thirty-eight years and a tranquil life. She isn’t expecting any surprises; certainly not to find her husband dead in bed beside her from a massive heart attack. It’s a devastating discovery, but not as much as the shock when Eleanor learns the truth about her husband’s secret life.

Claire isn’t your average thirty something. She has a successful career, a handsome husband , and two babies at home. But nothing prepares Claire for the horrible reality of discovering that the life she’d lead was all a lie, fostered by a husband who promised to love and cherish her forever… or so she thought.

Two women from two generations, bound together by denial, anger and grief. How far will their misery and fear push them? What happens when each of these women comes face-to-face with the other wife?

Will a husbands betrayal lead to a womans revenge?

No matter how big and strong you are, you cannot carry yourself to your grave. ( Be Humble )

No matter how beautiful or handsome you are, just remember, Baboons and Gorillas also attract tourists. ( So Stop Boasting )

Take life easy, life is too short.

TWO YEARS ON WORDPRESS BY JOSBONS

Two years of blogging by Josephine Osei

Today marks exactly two years since I started blogging and have enjoyed every bit of it. The new friends that I have made even though I haven’t met any of them and might probably not see them ever, but it feels so good to find other people who share the same interest from a different continents.

Some few years back, when I read a book and finds it interesting, all I wanted to do was to share it with some friends. But funny enough, most of my friends didn’t like reading novels so they keep asking, what is it with you and books? And I will reply, why don’t you like reading? 😁

This continued for sometime before I got introduced to WordPress and the magic began. I was so happy to know that, finally I can share something that I love to do with the world.

To sum all up…

Coffee never knew it will taste nice and sweet before it met sugar and milk. We are good as people but become better when we blend with the right people. The world is full of nice people, if you can’t find one, be one.

The richest wealth is wisdom
The strongest weapon is patience.
The best security is faith.
The greatest tonic is laughter.
The greatest force is love.
The surest assurance of our hope is God.
The source of our strength is the joy of the Lord.

surprisingly, all are free so let’s enjoy it.

Thanks to you all.
