Christmas is in the air!!! Its my favorite time of the year … Family, friends and fiesta!!!
People always look forward to holidays especially students – anything that is translated roughly as ‘no school’ then we’re down! Christmas has this different atmosphere though. Its one of the shortest holidays ever yet the most celebrated and the most anticipated. Coupled with the fact that its the end of the year, its a season of love where families reconnect and reflect on the year – hardships, good times and how they reacted through them all.
The ultimate proof of love is the real reason for Christmas! Christ was born to come and redeem us so we can be reconnected with God the Father. As December’s round the corner and we immerse ourselves into the ‘Christmas spirit’, let’s not forget the real reason for the season and celebrate with a grateful heart.
We should also use this time to reflect on the true definition of love. Love for our families is natural so during this period coming together seems almost normal but do something different this year and extend love to an orphaned child or that person in your office who’s always alone … Let’s make this year a Christmas to remember – one full of love and love indeed!!!
Also remember to appreciate your friends and family, they won’t be there forever so let everyone know that you love them and you’re grateful to God for the fact that they are in your lives. I never really appreciated this period till I came to school. I took it as a usual occurrence but Christmas in my house somewhat begins in November with my dad’s birthday and ends in February with my mum’s. My siblings and I fall in between … And being in school during this period has made me realise that you can never over emphasize the importance of loved ones around you!!!
Get into Christmas spirit people and remember touch a life this year. Santa’s recruiting you to deliver early Christmas presents – Make it a December to remember for you and for someone else!!!
When I dropped yesterday’s post, I didn’t think about the fact that today’s Sunday but here goes:
If you wanna be somebody, if you wanna go somewhere, you better wake up and pay attention
– From the movie ‘Sister Act’
You can’t sit down and do nothing and expect life to happen to you. You have to get up and go and make things happen. The same way your shoes have the ability to move but cannot move an inch without you moving them, you have various talents and abilities waiting to be made manifest. So today make a decision to get up and GO!!!
I know I owe quickies for about two weeks but the past two weeks for me have been a ride … Nevertheless, here’s what I learnt:
When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, give life your thousand reasons to smile
No matter what you’re going through, there is light at the end of the tunnel and remember like the rose bush, the beauty of your situation’s just within reach. So, instead of holding on to ‘nothing good lasts forever’, why not believe that ‘nothing bad lasts forever’ and just smile. Have a great week and I’ll be back on Sunday! 😀

Wow!!! Its already November … Happy New Month people. Where did the year run to? I’m sure some of us already have ‘end of the year’ blues. Its basically this feeling of either extreme satisfaction with the way the year went or anxiety based on what you still have to do.
As the year draws to a close, the Bondess™ advises that you Change the world, don’t let the world change you.
In all you do for the remainder of the year and wherever you are, endeavour to make an impression at least – a good one o!!! You can take it to the next level and make your presence felt in your class or your workplace or your place of worship – Let them miss you when you are not around! Quite alright no one is indispensable like I’ve said but let your impact be felt.
The main thing is that YOU should be the change and not the changed!!!
Say NO to failure απϑ disappointments in this month of NO-vember … Its a new month – another chance to do it right.
Have a great month απϑ remember that no matter what happens … NOVEMBER is the month to count your blessings απϑ give thanks!!!
