Tuesday Musing: Stop Neglecting Yourself ;Take Care of You

It is easy to fix everything and everyone but yourself.

Remember to take time to relax.
Watch that fatigue; that tired and exhausting feeling.
Stop eating junk because you are too busy trying to meet deadlines.
If you break down life doesn’t stop because of you. So stop and take care of yourself.

How to take care of yourself

  • Eat right
  • Delegate duties/assignments
  • Go play golf, tennis or watch a movie if you like the work load can wait.
  • Rest and yes sleep is good and necessary to be able to perform optimally at your tasks.
  • CEO time to take a break; your company will not crash before you get back.
  • Spend quality fun time with family, friends and loved ones.

Build meaningful relationships now because that is all that will be important a few years from now.  

People slum and die often this days don’t add to the statistics.

Take care of yourself. 😀😀

New Beginning: Inspiring Quotes for August #Happy New Month

Happy new month! And its a new beginning.

New beginnings come to those who step out in faith. Dr. Robert Wiegel 

If you follow your purpose, the profit will follow you. TD Jake’s.

The thought of a new beginning is scary because you don’t want to risk failing. Step out in faith.

It is one thing to remember past successes/failure and another to remain in the past. Time to move into new things… New success stories.

You can not keep living in the old way(sin) and expect change.

Behold I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19

Courage does not mean a lack of fear, but rather the gumption to stand firm in threatening circumstances because your trust is on the Lord. Steven J. Cole. 

May you experience new joys this August.

Forgetting to be Grateful, Forgetting to be Happy now – How You can be happy with your Life.

Today is Yesterday’s Answered prayer.

Many times we are focused on things we desire to have and haven’t been able to get/acquire.
Many times we focus on our dreams and goals and forget to be happy with the little/big successes we have had.

I find myself complaining about my workplace and desire to have something better. And so instead of being grateful I whine and whine and lose my joy. I forgot that yesterday I prayed to have this job and I got it. Today is yesterday’s answered prayer.

Sometimes we compare ourselves to what others have and forget that some other people wish to have what you have. Be happy with what you have and where you are as you hope and Trust God to give you a better tomorrow.

So you are single and feeling lonely? Worse still all your friends and nieces you took care of while growing up have gotten married. You are even helping to nurse their babies and sometimes tears drop and you wish you had yours; look around you there is so much to your life that you can be grateful for.

Your child is physically challenged and you struggle daily to take care of him/her. You wish yours was a “normal” child who can fend for himself. God knows about your struggles and He has been standing right there helping you by bringing people and resources to help that child. Be grateful, be happy and celebrate what you have for then you will see hope rising. There is always a higher and better purpose.

So your marriage is turbulent and possibly didn’t work out. Painful I know but be grateful; be happy for everything works out for good to them that believe even if it was your fault. Be happy, be grateful for a better tomorrow will happen for you.

How can I say it? I simply am grateful and choose to be joyful and I want you too, reading this to be.

Your happiness is not in getting that new dream job
Your happiness and joy are not in that relationship you so much crave.

Your happiness is not tomorrow
It is today, be Happy now.

Enjoy your everyday life (Joyce Meyer)

If you can’t enjoy your today; you might still not be happy tomorrow when your desires come true. It is about seeing today’s blessings even if they are small. Choose to celebrate today and all your blessings.

Change is coming and there will never be an end to what you want to achieve.

Today is Yesterday’s answered prayer.

Achieving Success at Saving is Possible

If you live in a place where you have to provide water for yourself by digging a well or borehole then you must seriously have containers to save water in.

And if you depend on electricity to pump water into your tank and you live where power supply can go off for days…. Hmmm save some water for a rainy day😀

The other day we had one of those days without electricity supply and pumping water was out of the question. Usually at such times we make use of water reserved in big containers. As I scoped water with a bowl into a bucket it suddenly dawned on me that the water will finish soon. We usually fill the big container with like 7 to eight large size buckets. I realized that it is only the amount of water that we reserved that we are getting back. So we would get to use only the amount of water saved earlier… Nothing more… Nothing less.

If nothing is saved there will be nothing to draw from

It suddenly hit me, saving for a rainy day is important. I better start taking it more seriously. Of course I am trying to save through my office cooperative group and as well put some money away I the bank but I haven’t been as committed as l should.

The rainy day always look far or our mind play a trick on us that it will never come. My advice to myself and you my reader start saving more.

There will never enough money to save from but you still have to save. 

A few tricks on how to save some money away

* Make up your mind to save something from your pay check no matter how little you are earning.

* Sign a document that allows your bank to deduct the amount you intend to save directly from your salary account into a savings account that you can not withdraw money from for a stipulated period of time.

* Have a target/project or something you are saving for in mind.  It could be the education of your children or even your self, house project, a business project.  This will help you to be focus.

* Don’t have an ATM card for your savings account or else you will be tempted to withdraw money when in  need.

* Have a monthly budget and work within it.

* Have a plan and take steps towards having multiple source of income. Take advantage of your skills and talents. Do something else apart from your monthly pay work. This relieve’s you of having to work with a very tight budget that can really prevent you from saving.

* Remember little drops make an ocean.

Enjoy your week.
