10 Reasons To Forgive The Person You Hate The Most

1. Forgiveness allows us to take responsibility for our own happiness. Most of what we attract into our lives is a merereflection of what is inside of us. Our thoughtsand actions create our exterior world. The Lawof Attraction teaches us that like attracts like, and we will never experience a happy ending at the end of an unhappy journey. By holding onto anger and resentment (even inour subconscious mind), we are pre-paving our journey to be filled with anger and resentment. The way we feel and the emotions we hold are what we use to create allof our future experiences.(Read The Secret.) 2. Forgiveness allows us to see everyone in our lives as a teacher. Family members, spouses, friends, bosses, etc.– everyone is brought into our lives to teach usmore about ourselves. Thanking them for being a part of our journey and teaching us lessons that we now no longer need to learn is an incredible step in expanding our consciousness. This same philosophy applies to our negative, failed …

Amaechi And His Many Devils!

First things first. Let us establish from the onset, that Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi is in no way a saint, neither is he devoid of any blemish currently plaguing both himself and his state. Having said that, the evidences are overwhelming to show that Amaechi is fighting a plethora of forces from several quarters. The canker worm eating up the state sprouts from different avenues, and their resolve is made of a sterner stuff. The events of the past few days in Rivers State is not only ludicrous, but it is a sordid reminder to us all that our democracy (if ever there was one) has been plunged in destruction. It is not a new sight to behold. During the fourth republic, the Ladoja and Adedibu shenanigans readily comes to mind. It is also worth mentioning that the evil that befell Chris Ngige during his turbulent days as governor of Anambra state bears some similarities with Amaechi current ordeal. His godfather, Chris Uba, under the shadows of Olusegun Obasanjo gave Ngige a fi…

11 Habits You Need To Give Up To Be Happy

1. Worrying about… everything. Worry is the biggest happiness slayer ever. Worry steals all of your attention and gives theillusion that you are working through a problem when you are not. As Van Wilder said, “Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it doesn’t get you anywhere.” People worry for all sorts of reasons: to escape reality, fear of the unknown, resistance to change, lack of confidence, etc. Stopping worry, like everything else takes practice; the more you do it, the better you will become at discerning when you are no longer controlling your thoughts and they are controlling you. Tip:To jolt yourself out of worry, ask yourself what you can do “right now” to make your life more pleasant and then do that! 2. Constant, deliberate, people-pleasing. Contrary to what you may think, saying “yes” to every request that is made of you is not nice. First, it is not nice to you because it can leave you emotionally, mentally and physically drained. And…

Jonathan And His Choking Fresh Air!

The half way point of the Jonathan presidency has elapsed, but the signs of a happy ending remains elusive. Forget the transformation cliches that emits out of the mouths of the president and his cohorts, sycophants, and bereft officials, our country has retrogressed in many forms. A glance at the midterm scorecard that is been peddled by Jonathan's errand boys tells you that the report was a sheer futile attempt to trade falsehood. Again, Nigerians are not that gullible. The question many of us should ask ourselves is: Are we better off than when Jonathan and his team took over in 2011? One does not need a magic wand to answer that. What we have witnessed for more than two years is an administration that have steered the Nigeria ship in rudderless form and untold impunity. It is either the team is not capable, or that they are too enmeshed in bickering, politicking and corruption. As you read this, our roads are still daily death traps for many, power supply remains an herculean …
