Trends don’t have to be a lifestyle

A Trend is more than a group of popular items that is in great demand.  It is an expression of what is deemed important by consumers at the moment!  Some trends were the forerunners of really fantastic innovations, and we all have our favorites, and the list is endless.

We are all born beautiful but society depicts to us what beauty should look like! So we buy expensive product that sometimes sells us the facade of beauty in a bottle I recently bought some product that did injustice to my skin that was a Lesson  learn.

Today we can turn on most cable channels a see recognizable celebrity endorsing some product that claims to have transform their flaws whether its skin, physical dysfunction, or weight loss. Cause their following is huge and will generate profit.

For many individuals trends has brought about major changes in the way we think about our community, and the world, and ourselves.  The benefits are personal be it positive or negative, most trend have left an impact on our social fabric, trends won’t ever die! But we shouldn’t make trends a lifestyle that we can’t live without just because its on trend.IMG-20170420-WA0000

5 Steps To Teaching Children Manners In A Manner-Less world.

Undesirable and mischievous behaviour seems to be the order of the day!  It’s sad, but in today’s world it is obvious that good manners have been thrown through the window.  People are more self-absorbed and unwilling to consider others, and children feel more entitled to whatever they want.

  1. TEACH TOLERANCE.  There are so many different type of personalites, values, characters traits,views likes and dislikes.  It’s inevitable that people will not always agree.  But show respect by being mindful of others feelings
  2. TEACH POLITE WORDS.  Teach children at a young age polite words and they will retain them, example like please” thank you”should be enforced in a positive way.
  3. MODEL GOOD MANNERS.  Model the behavior you are trying to instill in your child, children emulates what they see and not necessarily what parents tries to enforce.
  4. TEACH MANNERS AT A YOUNG AGE.  Children are never too young to learn and at a tender age they are more adaptable study shows that children who are taught manners at a young age are more polite so it’s imperative to instill manners at a young age and be consistent!
  5. CORRECT YOUR CHILD.  When disciplining a child avoid calling them names never lose your temper or embarrassing them in public, or any other act that would make them feel unloved!

Good  manners will never go out of style so always enforce it, and always demand respect form other cause we are all human and always remember tolerances for others will take you a long way.0dc877e273e00422aee7982bf8de7692

Steps To Being My Authentic Self

It’s 12.02, a new day is dawning!  And as I sit here at the Pegasus bar alone, I ponder to myself is this what I’ve become?  A loner!  When I was I teenager I thought I knew everything, but life as humbled me and teach me to pray.  I love technology but sometimes I hate being this much accessible to anyone, at times I am my most happiest sitting yet lonely with my own thoughts.

Should I be my authentic self?  Or should I start being promiscuous?!  I can’t lie I feel jealous of the lady in black and her lover sitting at the table next to me, and the group of friends behind me,  I guess I better snap out of that thought, mediocre way of living is not for me.  I know I have the strength to deal with whatever life throws at me, I now realize that my asset and liabilities has made me who I am!  All the pain and failure I have been through in life teaches me and makes me better.

Am I this drunk? Am I this bored? Shouldn’t I being having fun at this fancy bar?!  Instead I’m here writing this blog post,  but I know these roadblocks that stands in my path are just temporary, better days are ahead, awaiting me!  It’s obvious to me that I’m developing and growing from my pain, I will never lose hope and continue to be my authentic self!  I’m going home now, so have a good night and thanks for reading.screenshot_2017-02-08-22-15-14-2
