The Week's Message: "I'm NEVER Getting Married!!!"

Woman skeptical of friend's new dress : Stock Photo
This post is addressed to all youths out there that have uttered this statements more times than they can count. "I'm never getting married"...It sounds so final, so sure, some of us even call it a preference..."i prefer not to get married".

It is very common amongst ladies that are struggling to meet to the kind of man they'd like to spend the rest of their lives with. Someone was said to me "I am tired of dating. I know what my standards are but sometimes, I let go of them simply because I feel they are too high, yet I end up disappointed and used. I am never getting married." It is important to note that the laduy in question was 24 at the time she said this and now, at 27, she is happily married. I've heard of many stories like hers and it made me wonder, why do we sentence ourselves to a life of loneliness when the author of time has not sentenced us to such?

Fashion Designer Estella Ogbonna Recalls Her Domestic Violence Ordeal

17 months ago, I quietly walked away from an abusive marriage after just 8 months that felt like my whole lifetime!

I was ashamed that I ended up making the 'wrong choice' after all the other suitors I thought were wrong and said no to. SO, I hid away to heal in USA....

God healed me to get back on my feet again to face my career! I had to summon up courage to even sketch and sew! I was verbally, emotionally and physically abused till I lost faith in myself and abilities.

I found God in a different way and HE led me back to my former goals, dreams and purposes that the hellish marriage robbed me of.

This Week's Message: Stop Looking Back!!!

Depression : Stock Photo
"I remember back in the day when I was on top of the world..." these are very famous words by people who believe their lives have taken a turn for bad or worse.

They often reminesce about the good old days when they had enough money to shut down a restuarant or enough connections, prestige and whatever else you can think of, to swing things in their favour. Complaints follow such remineces.."I don't understand why God chose to put me in my present situation", "I'm tired of praying please.

People that don't pray have better lives" "Why do bad people get everything they want in life but I'm here playing relentlessly with nothing to show for it".... I understand these complaints because I have been there too; I have looked back on the good old days and wondered why I was suddenly 'stuck' in a particular situation. Was God even listening to me? Was it his plan to punish me? Why couldn't I just stay in those good old days?

1. You or Your Family's Full Birth Dates

We all love getting “happy birthdays” from our friends on our Facebook wall. It makes us feel all warm inside knowing that people remembered and cared enough to write us a short note on our special day. The problem is when you list your birthday you are providing identity thieves with one of the 3 or 4 pieces of personal information that is needed to steal your identity. It’s best to not list the date at all, but if you must, at least leave out the year. Your real friends should know this info anyway.
