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.

DO YOU KNOW ME BY JOSEPHINE OSEI BONSU

SUCCEED WITH SMILE AND SILENCE

DO YOU KNOW ME BY JOSEPHINE OSEI BONSU

Do you know me

Do you really know me? What made you think so?

Is it because you know my name?
Is it because you know where I work?
Is it because you know where I live?
Is it because you see me pass-by everyday?
Then you are mistaken, you don’t know me at all.

Do you know what makes me happy?
Do you know what make me cry?
Do you know what makes me angry?
Do you know my favorite color?
Do you know my favorite food?
Do you know the kind of movies I like?
Do you know the genre of music that I listen to?
Do you know the things I believe and those that I don’t?
Do you know what my addictions are?

I might laugh when I get upset and cry when I’m happy. When a joke is too funny, I can’t even laugh. This is just a little piece of me.

When you heard or read that story about me,you jumped into conclusion that you know me but you don’t. And you might never know me. You judged me from afar when you have no right to do so.

Being the hypocrite you are, you will never know anyone at all.

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.

THE MYSTERY OF THE BIBLE

This is pretty strange how it worked out this way. Even if you’re not religious, you should read this.

Question : What is the shortest chapter in the Bible?
Answer : Psalm 117

Question : What is the longest chapter in the Bible?
Answer : Psalm 119

Question : Which chapter is in the centre of the Bible?
Answer : Psalm 118

Facts : There are 594 chapters before Psalm 118 and there is 594 chapters after Psalm 118. Add these numbers up and you will get 1,188

Question : What is the centre verse in the Bible?
Answer : Psalm 118:8 Does this verse say something significant about God’s perfect will for our lives?

Well, the next time someone says they would like to find God’s perfect will for their lives and that they want in the centre of His will, just send them to the centre of His word!

Which is Psalm 118:8 ” It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man ” Amen

Hello Mr. Reason,

By the time you get this letter, it will be too late. We’ll already have her. Here are the steps you must not take:
Don’t call the cops.
Don’t call the FBI.
Tell no one.
We’ll know if you are the FBI.
We’ll and we’ll kill her instantly.
