WHY ALL THIS CRAP MATTERS

So word has been getting round. About how healthy one should be, or at least what they ought not to eat and etcetera. But truth be told. All these talks matter. Let’s just admit about one thing at least. That out of a million words said,  one line will be helpful to you.

You are what you eat. What you dress, how you look. Before you even introduce yourself, a little summation about your personality will have been made by the character/ behaviour analyst sitting across. I have been confronted on afew occasions. By a few people at the cafeteria. “Eishh!! Betty, I can see you’re getting all traditional.

The stuff that matter

All these local dishes and greens and stuff” They say.  And well, truth be told. yes I am. All these strange processed foods turn me off. To be honest, I don’t see why people get so excited about oily & fried stuff and mcdonalds and pizza hat and etcetera.

My body just reached a point where it won’t take what it won’t take. And it won’t force. Now this is why you need to think about the title of this article.

These processed things

It’s like asking a model why she wears long skirts yet other models do  otherwise, why she goes to church whilst everyone else goes clubbing, or why she sticks to a childhood boy-friend who is not in the limelight like other stars or wanna be’s be.

To make things clear, people get tired. that is why all this matters. Now I want you to stop listening to the noise from without, listen to the small voice from within. The voice you’re trying to suppress. The voice that is telling you things that you know are the right things.

Don’t shut it down. Because If you start paying more attention to that voice, you’ll realize that you don’t have to choose ice-cream over mango juice because all your friends are. That you don’t have to dress skimpy to fit in, that you don’t have to tag along where you don’t belong. Hanie, there is so much in you. Don’t give up on yourself too early.

THIS IS WHY YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR MIND.

So I was wondering for long why it so happened that some people had the same experience over and over again. Like let’s say retaking a course over and over or staying with an abusive spouse, sticking to friends who bad-mouth you etcetera and etcetera. The list is endless.

It was then that I landed on TD Jakes’s preaching about the power of changing your mind. This is what I learned.

  • You will never be a failure.

I know it might sound a bit of*.  But I guess you understand. Let it not sound in someway, but truth is, a changed person will never be the same again. You will never do the same things you used to do. You’ll find it hilarious that at some point you were so limited, so helpless.You’ll also notice how you tackle challenges with a new wave energy that you never had before. And guess what? You’ll won’t fail at whatever you commit yourself to. It doesn’t mean that you won’t make silly decisions again, but you will always correct yourself and move to the right path.

  • You’ll never be vulnerable or even desperate again.

We’ve all been there. At some point you’ve wanted someone so bad that they’ve started treating you like you don’t matter. But you stick around. Because you’re desperate for their love. Their affection.  A person with a changed mind does not insist on where he doesn’t belong or feel welcome. He builds the right relationships, acknowledges his mistakes, and moves in a morally upright. You won’t settle for less if you are a person with a changed mind.

There is a lot more and more. But meanwhile you can ponder on these or watch video here.
