Leftovers

Leftover(s) is/are known to be something, especially food, remaining after the rest has been used or consumed.  Well, leftover(s) doesn’t necessarily have to be food or anything consumable. Leftover(s) could appear to be bad habits. And i’m gonna share a few of them with y’all. Enjoy…

Shoes/Clothing: There are some person(s) who have shoes and/or clothing they wear a few times and then they dump it in their closets never to put them on again, and still they refuse to dispose or give to those who might need it. They just love the sight of that shoe or cloth chilling somewhere in their closet, as if it’s meant for decoration.

Interests/Talents:  A lot of people have interest in doing certain things, they try working towards pursuing their interest to make it a reality. But at some point for whatever reason(s), they just stop pursuing that interest. They move on with their normal lives and never attempt to build on it any longer. Here is a story of someone who once had interest in playing cello: I’d wanted to learn how to play for years, and finally took the plunge in my mid-twenties. I took lessons and practiced consistently for two years. No one walking past my window would have mistaken me for the ghost of Jacqueline du Pré, but it was fun. I was producing sounds which, to me at least, sounded beautiful, and I was also enjoying that peculiar, self-satisfied sense of pleasure one derives from being disciplined about something.

Then I moved abroad for a year. Logistically, taking the cello with me made no sense; it stayed behind. I never played it again. For years now I can’t even bring myself to open the case.

Yet I haven’t sold it off on Craigslist or donated it to a struggling school district, either. I’ve schlepped this thing through two major moves, and each time took meticulous care not to damage it. (I can’t tell if I’ve been successful — I never open the case, remember?)

Unfinished business(es): So many people have a lot of things they’ve proposed to do, it could be career related, or just some other things that needs to be done. They set a goal for themselves to finish that proposed business, but they never get to complete it due to some reasons: could be excuses, laziness, or for whatever reasons. This attitude could lead some people dueling on past glories, or incomplete achievements.

Alright, enough of my blabbing. Thanks For taking your time to read this. Your thoughts would be highly appreciated. 🙂

Catfish

 

Recently on twitter, I read some funny stories of people who once fell victims to some catfishes and shared their stories for the world to see; so I decided to share my thoughts on whom a catfish is. Anyway, here you go…

A catfish is someone who pretends to be someone they’re not using Facebook or other social media to create false identities, particularly to pursue deceptive online romances. Getting cat fished means you’ve been tricked into thinking someone you’ve met on the Internet is a real person, even though they are completely made up by someone else.

 Some of this catfishes think its fun to play with their victims’ emotions, while some others could just innocently use someone else’s picture as a display profile on any of their social medias, then some thirsty idiots: D hits on them continually which then  leads to them becoming a catfish. 

Google can be used for something called ‘Image Search’ to find their pictures.Does everyone know about Google? I mean, can anyone just use it or is it reserved for true detectives? When it’s time for the unveiling, the cat-fisher typically is almost always someone of the same sex as the person being Cat-fished. When the Cat-fisher is caught in their lie, they’re always just like, “Yeah, so… sorry?” and then they cop an attitude like someone else did something wrong.

Thanks again for stopping by, please do share and leave your comment as well. Oh! and by the way, below is a link to the trailer of a catfish movie you can as well check it out. 😀

Overcoming the enemy named E

Hi! how are you today? I know you might be wondering what the enemy named E could be. Don’t worry, I won’t let you rack your brain too much, so I will just go ahead and tell you how I came about this so called enemy. Now fasten your seat belt and read on as i bore you with my story. LOL!

Ok so I have a friend that persuaded me to start a blogging, immediately i started giving excuses for why I don’t want to blog. He kept persuading me and i still gave the same excuses, at a point i told I’ve heard but i never made any move. The truth is that even before this friend of mine mentioned about blogging to me, I’ve always wanted an outlet where I could share my thoughts and stuff since I have this flare for writing, but i never attempted to give it a try.

After a while i started giving it a thought, but then i push the thought away. it was like i was going back and forth trying to fight my excuses. Until I read an article titled “An enemy called E”. Reading this article made me feel like the author was talking to me in person (you know that feeling you get when you you read or hear something that has to do with that habit  of yours that needs to stop).

The author said and I quote: ” I believe it is absolutely safe to say that excuses are the greatest hindrances to achievable goals. Most people give excuses for almost everything they’re supposed to do but do not want to do or do not feel like doing”. These words penetrated into my system, I felt bad for neglecting my passion. Then I told myself, you know what i’m gonna go ahead and start this blog joor! enough of the “excuses”. Right there and then i made a decision to overcome the enemy named E!

Here are other tips to overcome making excuses:

  • Focus on Solutions and Opportunities

    When making excuses we often focus on problems, regrets and on things that just didn’t work. Therefore to eradicate excuses from our lives we must instead begin focusing on solutions, opportunities and on the things that did work. It’s a simple shift, but if we keep this principle at the forefront of our mind when making excuses, it will immediately transform our perspective of the situation at hand.

  • Focus on Your Strengths

    When making excuses we often focus on how inadequate and incapable we are. This limits our focus and brings to light all of our weaknesses. To counter this we should instead focus on our strengths and how we can use them to make the best of every situation.

  • Cultivate Four Critical Qualities

To overcome your excuses always cultivate patience, optimism, confidence and persistence. And             if you must make excuses, then at least keep them private. Nobody likes people who can’t take                 responsibility for their decisions and actions.

  • Accept Full Responsibility for Failures and Mistakes

    Excuses are often made because we simply don’t want to take responsibility for our shortcomings.

    When we take full responsibility for all failures and mistakes we begin to gain confidence in ourselves and our own abilities. Moreover, we begin to feel empowered because life is no longer built upon luck or good fortune, but rather on our ability to successfully adapt to the changing conditions that life throws our way.

“Believe in yourself, and the rest will fall into place. Have faith in your own abilities, work hard, and there is nothing you cannot accomplish.” ~Brad Henry
