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.

“Just keep walking,” I encouraged myself as I dragged my feet along the wasted land. I took a long deep breadth which I imagined would be my last as I was already exhausted from the long walk under the hot scorching sun with less to drink and on burning desert white sands.

I didn’t plan on coming this far, it just happened that the car broke down in the wrong place at the wrong time, a place where camels and donkeys moved about in pride and anguish from the hot scorching sun.

I probably needed to walk another 20 km before there could be any chance of help, something that was meant to be a vacation for me was turning out to be an unplanned fitness program. The locals were very helpful, they helped me carry my luggage, and also attempted fixing the car as well all to no avail.

“How do you do this”? I asked one of the locals who was making this walk with me, he walked as though the distance didn’t matter at all.

He seem not to be exhausted or bothered about the distance we had to cover to reach help. “He just smiled at me and said nothing” I guess he was used to such life style. ” I imagined”.

As we pushed further, we approached a farmland that seemed like a little settlement with few children and women scattered around and few men going about their business.

A breadth of hope consumed me as I knew we were close to something, water and maybe food and someone that can help fix my car.

Night was fast approaching and I knew making it back to my hotel was not an option. I had to take my chance eating and dining with strangers in their humble abode.

I noticed everyone here lived cheerfully and happily as if nothing mattered. They had no mansions not even a proper house, no fancy dresses, no cars not even a wheel of a car, absolutely nothing to brag about or show off with.

They went about like none of those existed. I noticed what they had was a close family tie and human relationship.

However, that is what life should be, one day at a time. As I departed, I had second thoughts and a different understanding of what life is and should be.

Literally speaking, the road to success may seem like a desert with endless stretch of land but walking through it one day at a time can be the answer to our unending inner thoughts and feelings.

We are sure to encounter donkeys and camels on the way to success, what matters most are those people in our lives genuinely ready and willing to help carry our luggage and with determination we can walk those kilometers to get to our destination.

The most important thing to know is to understand that we all need each other. Success is not a lifestyle and is not meant for certain people, it is meant for everyone.

No matter what sufferings or difficulties we encounter on our way and journey to success, know that only determination can get us there.

Giving up is not an option, understanding risks can help to lighten the burden of fear. Life can be simple if lived in simplicity and humility.


Are We There Yet? By Busyhandz

Patience! Patience! That was one virtue I lacked as I moved my waist from one edge of the bed to the other. This was the moment I have been waiting for, the pregnancy seemed to be unending, nine months felt like nine years.

At first, I was excited I was having a baby but as days rolled by, I realized what I had gotten myself into. The nausea, the sleepless nights, morning sickness, cravings, swollen legs, heavy boobs, and the worst of it all bloated stomach and shortness of breath.

I could hardly tie my boots myself by month eight of the pregnancy and by month nine, I could hardly climb out the bath tub. As I lay on the delivery bed at the general hospital grouching in pain and excitement, finally there was hope for me getting my body and breath back as soon as the baby jumps out.

Thinking way beyond my imagination, I wondered what life as a mum would be for me, having waited ten years for this bundle of joy, I knew I was in for a whole lot of adventure. I felt the numbness race through my lower body as the epidural took control of the entire management of my brain.

As I watched the doctors bend over my open thighs I knew it was time. Are we there yet? “I asked as I slammed by back down on the sheets, I squeezed harder with my eyes shut in exhaustion.

“They are here” I heard Dr. Batmos reply in an almost shouting voice but with a little disarray in his reaction. “They”? Who are they? I quickly asked as I opened my eyes in disbelief. “They are here, said the nurse, I watched as I was handed two little minions. The most beautiful gift ever! “Twins” I screamed.

I threw a sharp glance at Dr. Batmos. You said it was just one baby in the scan “I asked with my mouth open and my heart pounding so fast in excitement and awe”. I didn’t plan for this, but I instantly knew I was in for something magical! A life time adventure.

Sometimes when we seek blessings from God, we ask for just as little as an opportunity or a chance to be something or have something but most times God decides to bless heavily and abundantly!
