What I do have

Today I turn 30. I woke up and my first thoughts were those of gratitude, which immediate turned into thoughts of empty mess and sadness.

The first few minutes I thought about what I don’t have. How many things I didn’t accomplish and how many things I’d like to have, but then I realized I’m already amongst the top percentage in the world because of the the things I do have:
So today and for the rest of my life I want to reflect on the thing I do have. The will be the fuel that drives me to make a great impact:

  • A loving Heavenly Father who gave his only Son to die for me and I’m not ashamed of my faith.
  • Health
  • An amazing wife.
  • A baby boy on the way
  • A family that love me
  • Growing up in a fully functioning family
  • Having a place to work at and earn a living
  • Being able to work from anywhere 

The list can be even more elaborate and this blog post is raw( unedited) but I need to get into the habit of publishing more often.

Thanks for reading!

I believe there is a Creator

If you’re reading this as an atheist or and agnostic thinker please know that this comes from a personal place.

There is one and only one reason: The systems we see in nature and even our own bodies are so well defined that I can’t think it to be random. The way in which our organs work as a cohesive system, can it be random?  Everything I look at in nature hints some sort of intent this is why I believe there is a Creator.

Do things go wrong in nature? Definitely, but is that the majority? 

Now on the word believe. I use this  cause there is no scientific proof. Hence I believe ( not I can prove or I have scientific evedince ) I believe is a deduction based on personal observations.  The very word believe says we can’t prove it ( yet )

Technology and Science may never be able to prove a Creator exists or point Him out in nature.

I believe all things were created. Though things created can evolve that may just have been by design.

I don’t judge anyone on their journey and I hope that those In search will find truth and peace. I respect your choices but also ask that you respect mine.

Dropping the color attribute.

Many times in the media, from friends and in the industry, I hear terms like:

  • The black person
  • My white friends
  • The colourd neighborhood 
  • Etc.

In all these cases I would have understood it perfectly if they left out the skin color.

I believe that dropping the color when referring to anyone is the best way to remove the racial divide that we’ve created in our minds.

If you try, you may find that there are better ways to describe the people or person you’re referring to.

How to make your followers happy

This article is from the perspective of the follower.

You may be following someone with exponentially more followers whom you look up too so much, but one day they started tweeting about things you really aren’t interested in.

You see, we all follow people for very personal and professional reasons, but although they’re happy about the follower count, we’re really looking for what we can gain by following them ( maybe it’s just me but you get my point)

So if you have a few followers, please,l make them proud and remember this:

  • Your followers time is precious 
  • They follow you for a reason 
  • Tweet the beneficial stuff 
  • Keep ranting to a limit
  • Don’t stop tweeting 🙂

Planning to blog regularly?

I seriously want to blog more frequently while also creating more quality.  If you have a blog then I know you share this with me. And you should know that my reasons for desiring this are very simple:

  • Improve writing skills
  • Learn to think critically as I write.

These reasons are really personal. Along with it I also desire to provide you with value as an exchange for spending valuable time reading my posts.

At the end of the day, for most of us,  blogging is a labour of Love and I want you to feel that love. Any sentence, paragraph or Idea that doesn’t fit in will be booted. Even if I end up with 2 paragraphs so be it.  Two quality paragraphs are better than a rambled essay.

I’m committed to :

  • Writing down my blogging ideas
  • Writing more often. Converting these blog Ideas into drafts an drafts to published posts.
  • Using fewer words while also asking the question, what can I leave out instead of worrying about what I can add to make the post longer?
  • Being myself and sharing who I am and in so doing grow as a writer.
