Why keep secret?

Secret is what you do that at least someone knows about,but you don't want some other people to know about it. Today i ask myself why do people keep secrets. There are very few things i have done in life that i really wish some do not know about,may be i can remember one or two, but eventual those i am keeping it from helped me out of it.

As a student leader back in school, i have a lot of people coming to me, to tell me stuffs about their personal life and i take pride in being able to keep their secrets.I also know some people that if you tell them anything,they will talk about it the very next day on the roof top.That reminds me of a joke about 3 pastors gisting one day.They were telling each others about their weaknesses.The first one said his weakness was that he couldn't keep his eyes and hands off the sisters in his church.The second pastor's weakness is the church money. He is always helping himself to some anytime he is in need.After saying all that, the third pastor made them realise that his own weakness is just that his mouth is like the bowel of a sick person he must vomit whatever he eats,he cannot keep a secret anything he heard he must say it.

Is keeping peoples secrets a strength or weakness? because i know that there some secret you will keep that will put you in trouble.But i do know that despite all, whatever you do and you don't want somebody to know about,don't venture into it at all, because one day the secret will be revealed and where will you be then.So please don't keep secret because once someone knows about it,it is no longer secret.How do you know that your so called secret is not what someone is sharing as a testimony.So Whatever you do it is better to fear God than to fear men.He is the all knowing where there is no man God is there.Cheers

Have a wonderful weekend.

In a lighter mood.

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, "What are Politics?" Dad says "Well son, let me try to explain it this way:
..1. Im the head of the family, so call me the president
..2. Your mother is the administrator of the money, so we call her the Government.
..3. We're here to take care of your needs, so we'll call you the People.
..4. The nanny, we'll consider her the Working class.
..5. And your baby brother, we'll call him the future.

"Now think about that and see if it makes sense."

So, the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said.Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper So, the little boy goes to his parents room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room.Finding the door locked, he looks in the peephole and sees his father in bed with the nanny.He gives up and goes back to bed.

The next morning, the little boy says to his father, "Dad i think i understand the concept of politics now:The father says "Good son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about"The little boy replies, "The president is screwing the working class, while the government is sound asleep. The people are being ignored and the Future is in deep shit".

The Decline in Courtship:

I am beginning to think that time has left me by, otherwise, why does it appear to me as though some people I know are no longer interested in long, eventful and explorative courtship. I could remember in those days, how the older ones take pride in their relationships and dates.

Somehow, I miss the movie dates, I miss the long walks, I miss the conversations, and I definitely miss getting to know my prospective girl friend. I tell you what else I miss: I miss writing love-notes. It was fun and instructive penning some of those love letters -- expressing ones intentions and ones everlasting love and devotion.

It was just plain fun having a girl friend to introduce to friends and neighbors. The swagger of having a girl friend is almost gone. The knowing, the journey, the adventure, and the thrill of getting to know a girl is almost gone. Because this days having a girlfriend is almost the same as having a sex partner.

It is so bland and uneventful these days. The speed can be blinding. From the first date to consummation can be as little as 24-hours. And in fact the entire relationship may be over in another 72-hours or 27 weeks. How sad.

Whatever happened to courtship? What is the way out.Readers opinions are welcomed.

Please "SAY IT OUT"

Hello readers,how is the day going and i hope you are all reaching out to your loved ones,because if you don't, you may regret it one day...

I was chatting with a friend a while ago and she told me how much she regretted never telling her brother,how much she loved him,shortly before he died.The Brother had gone to her school to inform her, he will soon be a graduate. He never got back to his destination, he died in a car accident. That also reminds me of a story i read somewhere, sit back and enjoy:

One day a teacher asked her students to list the names of the other students in the room on two sheets of paper, leaving a space between each name.Then she told them to think of the nicest thing they could say about each of their classmates and write it down.It took the remainder of the class period to finish their assignment, and as the students left the room, each one handed in the papers.That Saturday, the teacher wrote down the name of each student on a separate sheet of paper, and listed what everyone else had said about that individual.

On Monday she gave each student his or her list. Before long, the entire class was smiling. "Really?" she heard whispered. "I never knew that I meant anything to anyone!" and, "I didn't know others liked me so much," were most of the comments.No one ever mentioned those papers in class again. She never knew if they discussed them after class or with their parents, but it didn't matter. The exercise had accomplished its purpose. The students were happy with themselves and one another. That group of students moved on.

Several years later, one of the students was killed in Viet Nam and his teacher attended the funeral of that special student. She had never seen a serviceman in a military coffin before. He looked so handsome, so mature.The church was packed with his friends. One by one those who loved him took a last walk by the coffin. The teacher was the last one to bless the coffin.As she stood there, one of the soldiers who acted as pallbearer came up to her.

"Were you Mark's math teacher?" he asked. She nodded: "yes." Then he said: "Mark talked about you a lot."After the funeral, most of Mark's former classmates went together to a luncheon. Mark's mother and father were there, obviously waiting to speak with his teacher."We want to show you something," his father said, taking a wallet out of his pocket "They found this on Mark when he was killed. We thought you might recognize it."Opening the billfold, he carefully removed two worn pieces of notebook paper that had obviously been taped, folded and refolded many times.

The teacher knew without looking that the papers were the ones on which she had listed all the good things each of Mark's classmates had said about him."Thank you so much for doing that," Mark's mother said. "As you can see, Mark treasured it." All of Mark's former classmates started to gather around.

Charlie smiled rather sheepishly and said, "I still have my list. It's in the top drawer of my desk at home."

Chuck's wife said, "Chuck asked me to put his in our wedding album."

"I have mine too," Marilyn said. "It's in my diary"

Then Vicki, another classmate, reached into her pocketbook, took out her wallet and showed her worn and frazzled list to the group. "I carry this with me at all times," Vicki said and without batting an eyelash, she continued: "I think we all saved our lists"

That's when the teacher finally sat down and cried. She cried for Mark and for all his friends who would never see him again.The density of people in society is so thick that we forget that life will end one day. And we don't know when that one day will be.

So please, tell the people you love and care for, that they are special and important. Tell them, before it is too late.Never again miss a wonderful opportunity to do something nice and beautiful.Remember, you reap what you sow. What you put into the lives of others comes back into your own.

May Your Day Be Blessed As Special As You Are

Sleeping on duty.

The issue of sleeping is a very serious thing, recently i dozed off while returning from a very busy trip and i started wondering what actually make people sleep without caution.I have a friend back in the university days who can sleep on water,what my friend need to sleep is just a moment of inactivity, i just wondered is that sleep cannot be controlled or people just sleep for the fun of it.I want to hear readers opinion concerning "Sleeping on Duty".

Today, average lifespan according to a recent statistics is about 75 years.

This means that; If you are presently 20, according to the lifespan statistics you only have 660 months left. If you are 30 years old; 540 months left. If you're 40 years; 420 months remaining.

If you're presently 50 years; 300 months and if you are 60 and above, you have less than 180 months.

Now, my objective is neither to depress nor to frighten you. Rather, I only want you to understand that we do not have an unlimited number of years to live. It's a pity that most of us live our lives as if we have 5,000 years to live.

Fast forward yourself in time, visualize yourself when you'd be old, grey and on your death bed. What are those things that you are going to regret? What are those chances you'd wish you had taken? And what are the things you'd wish you had achieved?

The woman you'd wish you had asked out? The job you'd wish you had changed? The education you'd wish you had furthered.Whatever?

The only person holding you back is you. Take chances and even if you make mistakes, it's still ok. The most important thing is that you learn from them and then do better next time.

Dear all, Live your life to the fullest!

Free or Hiding

This article has been on my mind for some weeks now,i even put the topic down and opened a note pad for it,but i did not write about it for long. I just finished a discussion with my Human Resource Manager now and the urge to write this article swelled up in me.

Recently there was a call in my office for every one to drop one bad habit and pick up a good one and true to it, we started seeing a lot of changes,ranging from use of wrong words to clubbing quitting and all that. I was so surprised at the level of change that,i was moved in my spirit to write this article.Because i asked myself are we really changing or we are hiding.

Whenever people are asked to make a change that will affect their personal life,they have 3 options,it is either they go ahead and break the habit,or they keep on as if they don't care,but the third option is the most common,which is that people will just be more careful concerning that habit wherever you are which is very dangerous.

We should not be ashamed to get help whenever we need to, most of what we keep away from people that love and are willing to help us, tend to destroy us at the end of the day.Remember 'Gehazi' yes that one in the bible,he went behind to collect a gift his master rejected,of course they didn't beg him for it,so why won't they collect it,after all the man's intention is to bless them.Because of that single act he blessed himself and his family with a wonderful leprosy.

My friends instead of hiding that stuff,Pleeeeeeeeease drop it now, it can truncate your journey.
