‘War on Ebola’

So, this guy thought it was cool to just stop in the middle of boarding to pull out his “War on Ebola” magazine and put it in my face or something. I get it, it’s a serious disease but come on people, let us be real here. Ebola is not a new disease, it is not the end of the world. Face it, we have to be cautious at all times, always, not just when a disease pops up.
There is no need to be extra and it should be an excuse to treat people like crap. We get it, you wanna be safe, but spare us, well, spare me the ‘extraness’, the drama. Stop picking when and where to use sanitary precautions. Always be aware, alert and cautious.

Such a Lost!

Yeah, I know I am late but I can’t let this pass without remembering this great, extremely funny and talented man that we recently lost- Mr. Robin Williams. He was such a great character and he made all of us laugh and we cannot deny we love him. His talents and great personality, as we have seen on TV for the most of us (didn’t personally know him), will always be with us. He will always be remembered. So, let us remember this great man and celebrate his greatest accomplishments.

May he Rest In Peace!!!

Afraid to Care!

Now that I have actually put that in writing, I realize how sad it really is.  So, tonight I want to talk a little about some of us who tend to be so overprotective of our heart, feelings and well-being. In fear of getting hurt, we feel like it is best to just shut down sometimes and we try to force ourselves to not care. I have come to realize that the more I force and remind myself that I don’t care, the more I actually care. That is very true because what we fail to remember is that we cannot possibly control our feelings.
Caring is actually a great thing. I am not saying that it’s easy to do, but we must try our best to just let ourselves feel and care. Restraining yourself from one of the best things in life is like putting an end to your life. It’s not the worst thing that can happen to you.
I would be wrong to promise you that you won’t be deceived and hurt, but it’s all part of growing up. Those are lessons to which you should pay close attention because they will certainly help you in the future. Please, note that I am not encouraging anyone to go and allow themselves to get hurt left and right, up and down. There are situations you can definitely prevent or avoid, but there are also those you can do absolutely nothing about. You just have to let yourself live the best life you can live.
Believe me, I know for a fact that shutting down and pretending not to care is not the way to live. You are just choosing to live a “what if” life and that is not healthy. You can’t possibly expect to live a happy, healthy life wondering what could have been. So, stop shutting down and pretend, just let things be.

Healthier Living

imagesSo, I’m thinking about starting to live healthier now as it relates to food and my diet. I want to start eating healthier. I don’t eat much junk food but I tend to go very long with no food which is not very healthy. Also, I am starting to choose a healthier diet. In one of my classes, the teacher asked, what do I think about America’s overweight issue? Well, I have not noticed it much until then. So many are careless about what they eat and sometimes they just don’t know or cannot afford to care. Sometimes, I have people coming to me and complaining about their weight and all I can really say is if you are not happy with how you look or feel, only you can change it. Also, if you feel comfortable in your own skin, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise and just live your life. Still, try to live healthy so you can fully enjoy life.

Divorce…

When is it okay and who should get a divorce?

It is never an easy feeling or procedure which is why I always tell people, don’t ever rush into anything. While it is fun and beautiful to get married, being married comes with a lot of responsibilities. It is very different from when you are just dating someone. It is actually a very serious business. If you are not ready, just stay away from it.

So when does it make sense to get a divorce?

Many Christians believe that divorce is a sin. I agree that you have officially agreed to “till death do us part”, but you don’t want to cause your death. God is a great God, he helps, forgives, and loves. So, while you believe that divorce is a sin, also believe that love and forgiveness are also very real. Always learn to love yourself because until you do, you won’t know what love really is. You won’t be able to love others or know when someone truly loves you.  Now, back to when a divorce makes sense, it makes sense when it is one of these two options: divorce or murder. So many stories have ended this way, where the person so desperately wanted to stay in the marriage hoping that everything will change because they know divorce is a sin and how will society see them, instead of leaving when they can no longer stay, they kill. Now, when they said “till death do us part”, I am most positive it is not that kind of death they were talking about. So, when your only options are divorce or murder, make the one which does not ruin your life. Your significant other is constantly cheating, mistreating you, physically, emotionally, verbally abusing you, don’t force it, don’t kill, just let it go. Do what is best for you. Believe living the rest of your life with the burden of killing someone is so not worth it, jail is necessary. Do what is best. Love yourself and think about yourself, your family and friends. Never stop loving yourself, if someone is abusing you or you just don’t feel safe in a marriage, it is okay to let go and get a divorce if nothing else works. Don’t sit around, hoping things will change when you are just really putting yourself at greater risks. Just care about yourself a little and remember God sees everything and he forgives. If it is not working, it is just not working and remember you deserve a lot better and the right to be happy. So please, love and care for yourself because that person clearly does not love or care for you as much as you thought.  Go ahead and live the life God created for you, don’t sentence yourself to death just because.  Enjoy life and don’t ever allow anyone to take that away from you! You deserve the best, always, so have it!
