Coming Through…

My Tuesday Trickles(Inspired by  Jacqueline) for this week:
Sometimes you find yourself at a point where nothing seems to be working.
Sometimes it feels like a tight corner
Sometimes it feels like you are at a cross road
Sometimes the world seems to be on top of you
Sometimes the load you carry is heavier than you thought it would be.

god-will-make-a-wayHere is a song especially for you written and song by Don Moen: Just an excerpt of the lyrics
God will make a way where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we can not see
He will make a way for you
He will be your guide, hold you closely to his side
with love and strength for each new day
He will make a way
He will make a way

So breath, You are coming through…

Weekend thoughts: Benefits of Sharing a Room & Bed with your Spouse

WHY Couples don’t share a room
• Some don’t want to share with a nursing mother or a menstruating woman.
• One room might not be enough for women to store their bags and shoes
• A continues hold on privacy
• Snoring
• Sometimes one partner may need  work late and this might disturb the sleep time of the other person.
• Sometimes one person needs to get early to work and he/she does not want to disturb other who might want to sleep in late.

These reasons are valid but take a closer look at the bigger picture if you want to achieve better intimacy with your partner: COUPLES IN BED

Benefits of sharing room with spouse
• It makes it harder to keep malice. And I am told a smaller bed is effective in helping to quickly settle quarrels as bodies of partners touches. *wink* 🙂
• A reason to cuddle up together more.

Benefits of sleeping together in the same bed: Lessons from the book- “Two in bed” by Dr. Paul Rosenblatt (Family social science professor)

Pillow Talk –It gives them a chance to talk about the day’s events, share feelings and concerns, and solve problems together.

Intimacy –The cuddling, spooning and warmth of being close to another are soothing in ways we may not even recognize. It increases feelings of intimacy with your spouse, and for women it enhances a sense of physical safety and security. Obviously, physical closeness increases the opportunity for sexual interaction.

Remember a happily Ever After requires sacrifice and spicing of your love life. Have a fabulous weekend.

Thoughts & Life #4 – Thoughts on Leadership

Never stop growing
Be growth oriented and not goal oriented
Never be satisfied with attainment off a position; keep growing, keep learning. (Inspired by the book 360 Degree Leadership)

Vision leaks, it needs to be communicated clearly, creatively and continually. John C. Maxwel

ABIYE CREW TEAM WORK

To get your team’s buy in into a vision you have to sell it to them.

If they don’t get it they will not run with it
If they don’t get it they can frustrate it
If they don’t buy into your vision you are going to have a hard time succeeding.

Don’t be a Mr/Ms know all
Don’t let ego get in the way
You need your team/followers to achieve your goals

Leadership is about leading and not an ego trip
You can succeed too; get your team on board and on the same page with you.

 

Tips for getting your team on your side
Share your vision clearly…paint the picture of what you want to achieve or where you want to go.
• Tell them you need them to achieve this.
• If you have a plan of how to get to where you want to go/achieve your goals share it with your team. However tap into their amazing ideas that will help get you to your goal.
• Assign duties and let them get on with carrying out their tasks without breathing down on their necks.
• Have a re-group meeting where you can remind your team of the goal/vision and get an up-date about how close you all are to the vision.
• Appreciate, appreciate efforts of your team.
• Acknowledge that you and your team made it happen…don’t take all the credit.
• If something doesn’t work share in the blame don’t push the fault on your team members.
• Take charge…be in charge, let your team know that they can come to you to handle problems that show up.
• Celebrate your success with your team…reward them maybe with a small tea party; certificates of thank you for a job well done and perhaps a raise if it calls for that.

Goodluck with wearing your leadership shoes!!!

Imagine a World without Music- Make Music Lagos

Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent- Victor Hugo

Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness- Maya Angelou

Ah, music, he said wiping his eyes, a magic beyond all we do here! J.K Rowling, Harry Potter, and the sorcerers stone
