Let’s take a moment of silence

Passion has walked out the door in many relationships. It is dead and buried. Partners are frustrated because they are not receiving the correct dosage of passion which was initially being prescribed.

I conducted a short research if you may, among some friends and some strangers at school and a little far wide to get to the bottom of this.

Here are some of the danger signs that a relationship is on its verge of breaking up. In most of these cases if the AED is activated the partners could be resuscitated;

Lack of intimacy:

Usually one partner gets frustrated as s/he seeks attention but in vain. Intimacy may include but not restricted to hand holding, kissing, touching, and just to name a few.

Overcrowding and nagging:

Most of the guys complained of not being allowed some space or personal time and that their privacy was being violated over and over. Some breathing space is of the essence.

Not spending time together:

I got this response especially from the women that expressed some sort of anger for allegedly being deserted by their men. It occurred to me that a little time with the Mrs. would be much appreciated.

Lack of communication:

Miscommunication and lack of communication go hand in hand. a little conversation could go a long way in any relationship, it is the adhesive that keeps the partners together.

Cheating:

There has been a lot of infidelity reported in several relationships. Some claim not to be satisfied while some claim to do it because they want to get back at their partners for once doing it to them. There were a few more reasons that came up for partners cheating. One other reason was as a result of lack of the thrill in their sexual lives.

What other reasons might be out there that might lead to the death of a relationship and what things can be done to revive or keep the fire burning?

Bold Spirit

“If you can’t be the best, at least be different.”—Niall Doherty

The quote above is actually the title of a video blog by Niall Doherty. I was inspired to write this post as a result of that video and the fact that everyone seems to be saying the same thing: that in order to succeed, in order to beat out the competition, we have to be different. Be remarkable. Be Seth Godin’s Purple Cow. And I agree.

I blog about being bold and things related as I see fit, and the word ‘bold’ does not just mean brave or outgoing—it means being different and standing out from the crowd. You may have read my “Make them say ‘WOW!’” post, which expresses the same idea that having a wow factor will set you apart from the rest.

Remember, if everyone can do it, it is no longer special…

Sunday Service

The sermon was powerful today. I find so much hope in the word of God. I would be distraught without it. After a whole week of stressful events and uncertainties, a wonderful service is what you need to begin a new week freshly.

So the sermon was titled, “being transformed spiritually” and the main verse came from the book of Romans 8:1-2. It is pretty self-explanatory.

The word urges us not to be transformed to the ways of the world even though we live in it. The preacher made it clear that it was possible to turn around completely and live a godly life.

The idea of surrendering our lives completely to God freaks out a couple of people, but the fact is that our lives do not even belong to us. They belong to God and as we die our spirits go back to Him. It sounds like a plain joke. It isn’t.

The preacher continued to say that each one of us was a tool that God intended to use. God only uses those tools that have been kept pure. The main focus remained to purifying ourselves.

The sermon ended in a high note, commenting that all things worked for good to those who love God. Even though some circumstances might be hurtful and troublesome God will always turn them around so it would work for your own good.

Have a blessed week

Doctor Quack

When I turned twenty, I was under the impression that life was going to be a party for the next ten years. I was sorely mistaken. You see… I was warned about a couple things: my metabolism will decrease, I’ll get fatter, academic work will get harder, I’ll have to pay taxes; but there are a lot of things no one warned me about.

So I have written this list, projecting my personal experiences onto my fellow twenty-something friends and colleagues who are themselves possibly struggling with the same things I struggle with in this deeply confusing decade we call our twenties.

1. Twenties are the new teens.

People in their thirties often tell me that the thirties are the new twenties, so what does that make us? Well, unfortunately, as if we didn’t already suffer enough in the confusing and disorienting teenage years, we have to do it all…

When I Have Time by Sara Rosso

If you’re new here, you should probably read my biography just to give you a better sense of who I am. In short: I do a lot of stuff. I’m curious. I love learning. I take risks. I speak my mind. I dare.

The risks I take are reinforced by a belief that I owe it to myself to at least try. I’ve always seen myself as a bit of a Jack of all trades, rather than an expert in one subject, but I’ve come to believe that’s a blessing rather than a curse. Releasing myself from the aim of being an expert or being perfect at something means that I have the complete and utter freedom to try. And fail. Hell yes, fail. Even often!

But trying, definitely.

I’ve spent a lot of time talking with (girl)friends about what’s next for them. I mentioned that I wanted to have…

Down memory lane

Memories are made of these. The many lives of people that you have positively affected as you live your own.

Looking back to the many lives that I have touched fills my heart with such an immense feeling of triumph. Above all, my heart seeks to affect lives positvely. I intend to leave a mark wherever I go.

As I look back at the many lives that I have touched and likewise the many lives that have touched mines, my heart sinks in abundant peace. Yet my heart still aches at the fact that I have not had any real contact with the people that I once cared for and will never stop to care.

Truly, our past is a big part of who we are. I am still very connected at heart to friends and family that I grew up with. The love that we shared, and the bond that we had will truly remain. The struggles that I have been through have made me into the man that I am.

Memories made of fun times and filled with laughter and enjoyment. Some are made of times when I had hit rock bottom and never thought I would ever come back up. Some are sad. I appreciate each one of them as they are a huge part who I am.

Every little thing that I have learned to this point and every last one of the individuals that I have met and changed my life will forever be cherished. Each one of those will forever live in me.

What have you come across lately that brought back old memories?

Word of encouragement

image

The other day I was listening to a motivational speaker and his message encouraged me so much that I was dying to share it with my dear bloggers.

The message was clear and straight to the point. What really pulled me into it was how he went on to give his own life experiences that I could relate to.

The speaker mainly discussed the fact that we are all humans and bound to fall short of what could be termed as right or lawful. Finally he spoke about success and the hardships that preceded it.

You would think it makes sense to quit when things get harder or unbearable. I urge you to stick your head and stand your grounds at a time such as this. This is when your character is being tested and built.

Take for instance a seed. If you threw a seed on the concrete, then come a few months down the line the seed will be dried up. Well, if you dug a hole into the soil and buried the seed and came back a few months later you would see something beginning to sprout out.

The dirt that surrounds the seed in order for it to grow into a beautiful tree and bear fruits eventually is likened to the hardships of life. You will always have people around you that wish you the worst of life, others will spread false rumors about you, and even falsely accuse you.

Do not give up yet. While they are talking about you, they are spreading manure around you, they are pouring water around you, and eventually you realize that you have built a character that does not care about what others may think of you.

If you are almost giving up on your goals because the road seems to get harder and harder each time, it is then when the seed is making its way through the soil. It is then when it is breaking the ground and finally appearing above the soil.

Therefore do not mind the dirt around you, do not mind the hardships, do not mind the haters because they are there to make you better.

Feel free to share moments that have encouraged you to keep going.

Another fallen star

To whom does life owe an explanation? If I knew I would question the death of many fallen music soldiers and loved ones. It seems like after Michael Jackson, death became so easy to do.

The death of Whitney Houston was a total shocker. Pronounced dead at her hilton hotel in Beverly; cause of death not yet known. It was hard to believe the news that hit the radio waves later that night of her death. So far criminal intents have been ruled out as a cause of her death. I could only think of one other thing that could have suddenly ended the life of this crooner; drug overdose.

Ms. Houston had been in and out of rehab centers and she fought hard against addiction. Yet her achievements in life over shine her addiction life. She had the best records of all time. If Michael Jackson was the king of pop then Whitney Houston was undoubtedly the queen of pop.  R.I.P Ms. Houston, you will greatly be missed.

What was your best record by Whitney  Houston?
