I'm Hurt, would the pain ever go away?

It's been two years since we last spoke, too long since we last saw but the memories are still firmly engraved in my heart and mind. It's funny how my heart could still beat faster at the thought of you.
Sometimes, I still want to hate you, more often, I want to hate me but none works.
And As much as it kills me to admit it, I miss you. But, No! I dont love you anymore. No! I dont regret the times we had. No! I dont want you back and Yes! I'm stronger,  eventually,  the hurt healed and the pain faded.
I hope you are happy. I hope you are really happy... God be with you.
Yours truly,
Hi there,  as you must have deduced from the letter above, my name is Sandra and once upon a time, I fell deeply in love with the most amazing person ever (or so i thought) but three years into the relationship, things went sour and we hit the rocks.

It's time to mix up with 'bad' people...

"We have the tendency to want the person to be a finished product while we give ourselves the grace to evolve"

Charles was from a Christian home but he didnt know God personally. He got into the university and got into drugs, he slept with every girl he could and soon, himself and his 'gang' got into robbery. He managed to finish his education and when he did, he got into drugs and internet fraud full time. He did make a lot of money tho.

Amy was a church girl. She came from a Christian home but unlike charles, she stayed through. She was born again and  had a steady relationship with God. She went to the university and came back unchanged, still godly.
Working at her Church office, all she wanted was a man who loved God more than he loved her. Oh! Of cause, she wanted him to be cute, smart, ambitious and financially stable enough to take care of her but the major prerequisite for a relationship was the love for God.
Life happened....

Charles and Amy crossed paths.

Stop Learning!

"The soul always knows what to do to heal itself, the challenge is to silence the mind."
Alot of us has gotten so engrossed in learning that we have stopped thinking. We have gotten so accustomed to listening and picking people's ideas and stories that we have stopped looking at life from our own perspective.
Totally new stuffs are not created anymore, new ideas and theories are not shared anymore, everyone is busy recreating or redesigning something already created or spreading already existing ideas and theories.

The love letter

A friend sent me this. It reminded me of primary school and childhood crushes (I'm sure alot of us can relate to it). I hope it makes you laugh as it made me...
Hi Eniola,
     Ever since you came to our school, I haven’t been myself. I have been feeling somehow, I think I’m in love with you.

So, I have commitment issues...

At the moment, I feel like a mess, I'm down with the flu and it ain't funny. It's like the Catarrh isnt just blocking my nose but also my head, mind, and whole body. Trust me, this ain't a cool feeling, I feel paralysed,  I cant even talk well... okay, enough with my whining... *takes a deep breathe; now feels more relaxed*
I'm in the mood to rant... yea, I know I usually dont do that here but guys just humor me okay? Thank you.

I want to talk about relationships, commitments and all the likes...

I feel like I have commitment issues, you know the phobia to settle down (yea! I know I'm young and all but it's never too early prepare and set plans for the future right?).

Lessons Part 2

I promised to do a sequel to my last post (if you havent seen it, kindly click here) and here it is - the continuation of lessons I learnt in past weeks.
Number 3: Reconciliation
A friend texted me for advice one day, she just got back to school after a year and so settling back into school life was proving difficult.  She didnt know how she was going to balance studies, spiritual life and social life and all that. In the midst of her dilemma, she said the Holy spirit led her to talk to me; me who was just trying to get by, me who had somehow lost touch with God.
When I saw the text I just laughed,  what was I going to tell her? Okay,  I had learnt about priorities already so that was something to share but what about keeping the fire burning?

Lessons Part 1

Hey guys, it's been so long... I missed the blog community, I hope I was missed too...
I'm back now (for good) and I'd love to fill you guys in on the few things I have picked up over the past weeks.
But, before i begin, I want to apologise. "I'm saying a big sorry for my inconsistency... I plan to remedy this. Please,  readers forgive me... I had to take a break so as not to fall short..."
With that said, lets dive into lessons:
Over the last couple of weeks i learnt five major things which I'd caption;
1) Priorities
2) Open-mindness
3) Changes
4) Reconciliation
5) The Race
For the sake of length, I'd write on two here and the others in a sequel post.
First off is Priorities:
