According to the Oxford dictionary, the word definition implies ‘what is meant by a word, context, action, etc…’.

You may be viewing rejection the wrong way!
I’ve found that there are two main reasons why people get rejected! You are either being devalued by the wrong people or undervalued by the right people! If it’s the former, rejoice and sing your hallelujahs! You’ve probably dodged a bullet! However, if it is the latter, then there might be room for personal growth!Continue reading “You may be viewing rejection the wrong way!”
The age of apathy; the middle ground between love and hate.
I imagine being given two oranges!; one with so much juice and seeds, and the other, however, simply being like the first without seeds! I like to picture love as an act that proceeds to bear more good fruit! And while it’s been thought that hate is the opposite of love, for me it seems,Continue reading “The age of apathy; the middle ground between love and hate.”
A tsp of forgiveness, a TBS of grace and a liter of love
I was recently caught up in a quagmire, where I struggled to process an emotion! From my previous blogs, you will know that I am big on the virtues forgiveness and love. I’d like to think that grace is the link between forgiveness and love.

The 3 types of social media consumers.
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN About a year ago, I decided to cut down on my screen time. It wasn’t necessarily because I wasn’t being productive in areas I needed to be- or so I thought. However, multiplying an average of 6 hours by 7 days by 4 weeks by 12 months clearly spoke volumes.Continue reading “The 3 types of social media consumers.”
Growing your emotional intelligence; Respect

Well maybe it was not a scream and maybe it was not even someone you could potentially scream at toContinue reading “Growing your emotional intelligence; Respect”
The cool part about the ‘I’ of the INTJ spectrum;
Have you tried spending time with yourself lately? No, I do not mean avoiding people. I mean spending an alone time with ‘yours truly’ because you relish it! Also, alone is not equal to lonely; let’s get the definitions right. Being alone simply means being in a physical space where no other person is, ORContinue reading “The cool part about the ‘I’ of the INTJ spectrum;”

The Venusian INTJ
Dr John Gray, in his book ‘Men are from Mars, women are from Venus’, must have totally missed a sub-cohort of the Venusian species or just maybe, not all women are from Venus. There is also the possibility that the INTJs might have been exiled from Venus- that would certainly be plausible. I’ve been tryingContinue reading “The Venusian INTJ”
The 70*7 Forgiveness rule
Prior to writing this blog, I reached out to a Theologian friend of mine to find out why Peter, in Matthew 18: 21-35, suggested that forgiving 7 times was a fair standard. This is what he said; I think there was a Rabbinic debate about it and it was considered that forgiving your neighbor 3Continue reading “The 70*7 Forgiveness rule”
