SEE WHAT CHILDREN FROM RICH HOMES AND IN PRIVATE SCHOOLS DO BEHIND THEIR PARENTS
… It was a pool party.
And they were there.
Men who have ‘arrived’.
Money, power and fame.
Men in their prime who tell time to hold still since they have refused to age and it grudgingly obeys in detente and in temporaneous.
They dress young, they dance young, they act young.
10 THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN EVERYTHING YOU WANT IS OUT OF REACH
Doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith.
That’s the super-short version of my advice for those moments when nothing seems to be going as planned—when everything you want seems out of reach.
Yes, just be right where you are, with an open mind.
Let go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and sincerely appreciate it for everything that it is.
Easier said than done of course, especially when tragedy strikes. And although Angel and I have coped and grown through our fair share of real tragedies, let’s be honest about something: 98% of the time we create tragedy in our lives out of fairly minor incidents. Something doesn’t go exactly as planned, but rather than learn from the experience, we freak out about it and let stress become us.
3 TOXIC BELIEFS MOST PEOPLE THINK ARE NORMAL
Let me tell you with a quick personal story and give you something important to think about…
When I was in my early twenties, I had tunnel vision and expected life to be a certain way. I studied my failures until I lost sight of my successes. I surrendered my dreams to feel a sense of comfort. I held tight to my fears and shielded myself from love and happiness by refusing to put myself out there. I sat home most nights and picked at my scars until I saw no beauty left in the mirror. And as I did all of this, I desperately wondered why life was so miserable.
Obviously, I was very lost. My own toxic beliefs and ensuing behaviors had gotten the best of me. But after some extensive soul searching, lots of reading, and diligent daily practice, I learned to do things differently, and I found myself again. I tell you this because I know you struggle with similar inner demons – we all do at times. Sometimes the ideas and habits we get comfortable with end up killing us inside.
A HUSBAND ASKS WIFE TO DRAW WHAT’S ON HER MIND
Stephen from the US recently posted a drawing of his wife’s mind and it went viral. He asked her to draw what she’s thinking and the elaborate map of her thoughts shows that it’s nowhere near ‘nothing’!
“I thought the drawing was hilarious,” Stephen told Bored Panda. “She’s always telling me that she has trouble falling asleep (to the point where she sometimes writes short novellas in her mind to distract her enough so she can drift off to sleep). She often mentions that I would not be able to survive a day in her brain and after seeing this drawing, I just may believe her.”
10 LITTLE THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN LIFE NO LONGER EXCITES YOU
Once upon a time, there was a girl who could do anything in the world she wanted. All she had to do was choose something and focus. So one day she sat down in front of a blank canvas and began to paint. Every stroke was more perfect than the next, slowly and gracefully converging to build a flawless masterpiece. And when she eventually finished painting, she stared proudly at her work and smiled.
It was obvious to the clouds and the stars, who were always watching over her, that she had a gift. She was an artist. And she knew it too. She felt it in every fiber of her being. But a few moments after she finished painting, she got anxious and quickly stood up. Because she realized that while she had the ability to do anything in the world she wanted to do, she was simply spending her time moving paint around on a piece of canvas.
She felt like there was so much more in the world to see and do – so many options. And if she ultimately decided to do something else with her life, then all the time she spent painting would be a waste. So she glanced at her masterpiece one last time, and walked out the door into the moonlight. And as she walked, she thought, and then she walked some more.
THINK DEEPLY ABOUT THIS; YES, THINK!
An 8-year-old boy was seated at the corner of a place of worship with his younger sister. He was deeply engrossed in prayers asking for the assistance of the Sovereign GOD!
It caught my curiosity. He was wearing very old clothes with patches here and there, but they were very clean. His cheeks were wet with his tears, the passersby were looking at him, but nobody bothered to stop by him, even as the little boy was busy talking to his GOD!
A stranger went to him, took his hand and asked him, “What did you ask from GOD?!”
HE WAS SEPARATED FROM HIS MOM FOR 25 YEARS; AFTER 7 YEARS OF SEARCHING GOOGLE EARTH IMAGES, HE FINALLY FOUND HER
It was a miracle.
Terrified, Saroo woke, trapped on a train hurtling hundreds of miles away from his home in Khandwa, India. There was nothing the 5-year-old could do besides yell the name of his older brother: “Guddu!”
Because Saroo and Guddu’s mother worked from sunrise to sunset carrying hot bricks and the money she made hardly fed her four children, the two brothers had been searching for loose change and food scraps at a train station in a nearby village when Saroo had boarded a train, looking for his brother. Sleep-weary, Saroo dozed off, expecting to wake up to his brother’s face.
But when he woke up, he was alone.

FAMILY PORNOGRAPHY DESTROYS KIDS
“MY MUM DRESSES UP BEFORE ME!”
I counselled a young guy who was addicted to masturbation. He told me he can’t do without masturbation. One thing that struck me in his confession was when he said, “My mum caused all this for me.”
Curiosity got hold of me and I asked him how? He said he started masturbation since when he was four years old.
“My mum has always been dressing up naked before me. I am used to seeing her nakedness. I am not moved to have sex with her but I always long to see mature ladies naked just the way I always see my mum dressing up naked before me. I still remember seeing her nakedness regularly till I was eight years old and my dad do shout on her, ‘Send this boy out before you dress,’ but my mum would always reply by saying, ‘Will my son sleep with me? Stop planting evil thought in his heart.’
