Love One-Four

Michael J. Pittman

In 130 days I’m getting married, and a friend recently asked me why I love my fiancé. I wanted to share a deeper perspective on Amanda and I’s relationship, so before I answered why I love her, I had to first explain to him the reasons I don’t love my future bride to be.

I came to two conclusions:
First is, I don’t love Amanda for what’s on the outside. I know. It sounds cheesy, it sounds sappy. This perspective is not a novel idea by any means. How many times have you heard someone say, “I don’t love you for what’s on the outside. I love you for what’s on the inside.” But that brings me to my second conclusion.

I don’t love Amanda for what’s on the inside either.

Now don’t get me wrong, there are many things on the inside and outside that I love about

Urinotherapy


The longest beauty battle with teenagers and young adults is ACNE! There is acne treatment in every form – soaps, creams, capsules, ointments, oils – just name it! Personally, nothing really works for me so I just let my face be. 😦

Anyway, a way that works, is effective and costs you nothing at all is urinotherapy. I’ve realised that people are swayed by names; hence the name URINOTHERAPY. If I used something like ‘Urine and acne’ or ‘Urine as an acne treatment’, then most people won’t bother reading again because it doesn’t sound ‘scientific’ or ‘medical’. It all boils down to packaging but that’s a post for another day.

Back to urinotherapy, our first reaction to urine for acne treatment is this

but contrary to popular belief, urine is about 90-95% water and is therefore not toxic. The smell also fades after it dries but dont worry you wont be wearing a urine mask all day. Its quite simple … For acne, its usually the first urine passed for the day used. I’ve outlined a few steps below:

TAKE A CONTAINER FIRST THING IN THE MORNING WHILE GOING TO URINATE.

PUT THE CONTAINER MIDSTREAM SO THAT A LITTLE URINE IS PASSED BEFORE COLLECTION AS IT MAY CONTAIN BACTERIA.

USING A COTTON BALL, COTTON WOOL OR A TISSUE, DIP INTO URINE COLLECTED. DO NOT SOAK COTTON BALL (OR MATERIAL BEING USED).

APPLY TO ACNE OR ACNE SCARS AND LEAVE ON FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES OR MORE IF DESIRED AND RINSE OFF.

CONTINUE WITH YOUR NORMAL FACIAL TREATMENTS.

The beauty of this form of therapy is that again its 100% natural. Most acne treatments contain urea which is a main component of urine. You can apply this treatment twice a day for maximum effects or even leave overnight. It generally has no side effects but some may experience a slight tingling sensation or one of these.

Doing some research I’ve discovered that there are other general and health benefits of urotherapy, cancer treatments included.

DISCLAIMER:

Read the side effects before you attempt this therapy and do so at your own risk.

Remember, because its natural doesn’t make it any less effective. Have a great day!

Why NOT you?

Why don’t you want to be YOU?!

Interesting question, isn’t it? But it’s a question most people avoid answering? Many people, youths especially, have lost or, rather, neglected thier own unique identities and have taken up those of others because for one reason or the other they feel like there’s something utterly wrong with them and in order to ‘blend in’ and be ‘accepted’, they must talk a certain way or have the figure of a supermodel or look like a celebrity. So, in the quest to be accepted and to fit in, most of us loose our true selves and thus, we loose that God-given glory of being unique and different. We end up being someone else’s carbon copy; and the sad thing is that ‘a copy’ can NEVER be original; it’ll always be second best. The society and the world, at large has made templates for different areas of life that define success and determine what is acceptWhy don’t you want to be YOU?! Interesting question, isn’t it?

The society and the world, at large has made templates for different areas of life that define success and determine what is accepted and regarded as ‘cool’. According to them, any one who doesn’t fit into these templates are substandard. This is sad, you know why? Coz, they society in itself is myopic and imperfect; the standard always changes and to get to it requires that you always change. So, why would you bend over your back and go through sooo much stress and work just to fit into to a template that is never stable? I’ve got a better idea! There’s a template that never changes; one that was created by the greatest builder, fashion designer, beautician, and every other thing you can think of; one that isn’t impossible to fit into- that is the Word of God! The Word of God is described as a mirror- He shows you who you truly are. He? You ask? Yes, He! The Word of God is God Himself and if He is described as a mirror, it means that He defines who you truly are; not the media, the magazines, people, things, etc. GOD DOES! He created you! Meaning that, He knows you down to the last detail! Everything that’s in you and that makes you up was placed by Him. What you gotta do now is to discover who you are in the Word of God and be that person! Some people think this is an archaic solution but I beg to differ! Coz, you can try every other method there is and you’d still be dissatisfied! So my dears, the bottom line is that you are unique and that’s what makes you special. Don’t give up your God-given glory, just to fit into society! Rather, be who God has made you to be by seeing yourself just the way He sees you (through His Word)- HIS MASTERPIECE!!!! ed and regarded as ‘cool’.

For a generation that prides itself on being independent, its amazing how dependent we are on the media to tell us what’s ‘cool’ and what isn’t’

I got this quote from a tweet by @thejaraTV: “Anyone can love a rose, but it takes a great deal to love a leaf. It is ordinary to love the beautiful, but it is beautiful to love the ordinary”
Make an effort to extend a loving hand to people who ordinarily are considered to be at the bottom of the social ladder. Love someone who is seen as ‘ugly’ by the world and let them know they are beautiful!!!

This week I urge you to
Find beauty in your flaws. Truth is better than perfection
Kimora Lee Simmons

Somebody loves something you believe is terribly wrong in you. Be yourself and love yourself for who you are and true beauty would definitely shine through. Do not try to be perfect like some people you believe are perfect because they have their flaws as well.
Just believe in your self and BE YOU!!!
