In Good Hands By Busyhandz

As I sat on that chair waiting for my name to be called was enough to trigger a heart attack. I was there with one hundred job applicants, in a huge room and contesting for one position.

I wondered if I had a chance at all, the crowd was very discouraging and I was getting very anxious.

However, having waited six hours already, the next thought on my mind was to leave the arena and go home. There was no way I would get the job with all these competitors here and the day was fast coming to an end.

I was hungry, tired, and exhausted. What could possibly go wrong? ‘I thought’. I have been out of job for the past eleven months, it’s unbelievable how I manage to survive.

That was my first interview after eight months of job search and futility.

My joy knew no bounds the day I got the phone call inviting me for the job interview, finally I had that feeling that I was still relevant despite the harsh economic down turn.

Even if I end up not getting the job, at least one interview will likely open doors to other interviews, ‘I imagined’.

The crowd that I saw in that room was a reminder that others were almost in the same predicament as I was or maybe worse. At least I was not the only one saddling the boat of unemployment and hardship.

Despite being hungry, tired and anxious, I still had hope. Hope of something I wasn’t sure of, I guess faith got caught up with my hopes. As soon as my name was mentioned, I felt a huge pack of worms released inside my stomach.

I barely was able to stand on my feet, fear gripped my entire thoughts and whole being. I dragged my feet along and cleared up my throat as I managed to release a weak smile to the elegant lady standing right in front of me.

Inside the interview room, I felt my voice shaking as the questions flew in like fireworks.   After my interview with the management, I knew there was no chance of me coming back here to resume office. That was it, I blew it! ‘I thought’ as I cried silently.

I was going crazy with excitement when out of 100 applicants that fateful day, I was called upon to assume the role of a production manager. I wasn’t the smartest guy or the cutest, I was just the luckiest of them all.

That changed my entire life forever. The divine forces were at work again, I never gave up on my faith and beliefs.

Now looking back those years, I only sit back and smile because now I have come to understand that there is no end to chasing shadows.

Stand still and make that leap with faith and hope and with great anticipation because when God decides to take you further than you anticipated not even slippery grounds can push you backwards.

 

The Big Decision

Worried and broken, I paced the room back and forth in hysteria. Confusion had taken over a greater part of me, was I dreaming? Or was this actually a joke? Endless questions with no right or wrong answers overwhelmed my entire mind. I knew it was time for me to take that bold step.

A decision that would change everything, a decision that will point me towards the right path. The toughest things to do are making decisions, that I know from past experiences with success and failures. I have had my fair share, am sure everyone can testify to fair share with success and failure in some form or way.

I was determined not to let that discourage me. I was sure to get it right this time. No going back, no biting lips, no arrays of confusion and no day dreams. I wasn’t going to let anyone make that decision on my behalf anymore.

There is always something to learn from experiences from the past, those experiences sometimes influence our decisions for the future. Now is the future, I worry and pace no more, the assortments of confusion gone, the dream a reality all because I made a decision to be HAPPY.

Happiness is the game friends!

Have a great weekend!

That Thing Called Parenting By Busyhandz

Certain principles require certain enforcement when it comes to raising kids.

The fast changing world has forcefully put a new dimension to raising kids and this is threatening the skills of parenting for parents and guardians.

Parents/guardians wake up each day, maybe a bit confused on how to go about some form of new personality (bad behavior) kids pick up from school, peers, and social media. Most of the new bad behaviors require some great level of maturity, and focus to crack down the code.

Today’s parents have become FBI’s in looking for best ways to crack down and tackle the issue of bad behaviors in kids and managing the situation.

The most important thing to know is morals, which is the antidote for this virus (bad behavior).

MORALS: Sink in core simple basic morals into the mind of the kids allowing them to differentiate between good and evil. That will help them make choices and have better judgement.

Teach practical morals that they see you play out, they know it’s real and doable. For instance, you cannot say “smoking is bad kids do not smoke”. However, you light up a cigarette in their presence and expect them not to light up one sooner than later Lol.

My six year old will never pee inside the bathtub while having a shower, she will get down from the tub make it to the toilet and come back for her shower.

That is her own moral and principle. She would always say “mum pee stinks, I don’t want you to smell that while giving me a wash.” That is very understandable, I actually do not like the smell of urine anyway. I remember I once told her the smell of urine makes mummy sick so that quickly registered in her head. Lol

COMMUNICATION: You better start talking! Talking with the kids can unravel a lot of mysteries from that little mind of theirs. Just like an armed thief planning his next stealing spree, communication can have your kid spilling their “secrets” and escapades without even knowing it, and that can only happen in the manner you open up and approach every conversation.

I start by telling mine that I have a secret I want to share with them and they should please not tell daddy. That instantly catches their attention and gives them a feeling of relaxation.

After hitting up a cock and bull story that dad shouldn’t know about, Lol. They always feel free to share every details of their lives with me.

This can only work if you start at an early age with the kids, not when the kid is already a teenager or even six. Good luck guys!

Let’s all share each other’s experiences with parenting in the comment section below .If you do have questions, feel free to spill it out!

Have a great week!

Reflection: Ponder and Think! Oh It’s My Birthday By Busyhandz

The best things of life come when we desire it and work towards achieving it.

  • For one wishing to eat healthy, would you rather spend your money on ice crème and candies?
  • For one wishing to acquire wealth, would you rather sleep all day and wallow around in ignorance? Blaming everyone that crosses your path?
  • For those wishing to live, would you rather test your jumping skills by jumping into the ocean without a life jacket and swimming skills just to be lunch for the sharks?
  • For those wishing to be successful, would you rather not be happy for your neighbour’s success but wishing success comes to you?

Life is a surprise! Waking up every day is already a huge surprise because you do not need a slap on the face to be woken up. We are not in control of our lives, some people made it to bed just like us with hope of embracing the early morning sunshine but didn’t make it up.

At the same time all these are happening, new babies are being born all over the world per second, Oh! what a bundle of joy to mum and dad,  I was once that baby.

That is why waking up this morning just put a smile on my face because it’s my birthday! Thanks to all my friends, family, and fans that have wished me blessings this day.
