What Matters Most In a Relationship?

Say No To Deadwood Relationships

So recently I made a decision that hey, my self improvement ideas shouldn’t just stop at myself. It should also reflect in the company that I keep and so I made the conscious decision to weed out the bad seed from amongst my already small group of close “friends”.

Today I came across this post and it made my day. I just had to share it and hope that it will do the same to you too.

Work hard to be a good friend to others, and you will usually be rewarded in kind. If that doesn’t work, find a new group of people, because you shouldn’t be wasting your effort on deadwood.

So, that said, I believe I have weeded out the deadwood and I have moved on to bigger things, better things. My professional goals align better with my personal goals and I must say “It feels good!”

Is Marriage Bad For Your Health??

While surfing the net I came across this article talking about marriage and its effect on your health. Well on your weight at least.

Apparently people gain weight after they get married…really?! I did not notice, I guess studying 8900 people over a span of a few years made more sense than just using common sense and looking at your sister after she tied that proverbial knot…

“People who stay single, or become single again by divorce, may be somewhat more physically fit than those in wedded bliss,” or rather so says a new study.

There was a study done which followed almost 9000 people over a few years which then determined that those who were married were lessfit when hit with cardiovascular tests.
Interestingly enough though, if you got divorced as a male, then they experienced an increase in fitness levels.
These findings are not limited to males however as females experienced an increase in fitness if they stayedsingle throughout the study.

Apparently the message the researchers wanted to get across is that life changes affect our health….riiiiighhhhhtttt!! Or, maybe marriage is just bad for your health.

Why Did I Bother to Change?

Ever notice how an individual will do their best to change negative aspects of their personality and drop things which are really unnecessary and still end up in trouble for things done in the past?

Well, sometimes I am left to wonder why is it that we should bother to change if persons are still going to get worked up over the things which you have done and left behind and most times even forgotten?

If that is going to be the case then we might as well continue down the path of past years if we are still going to be seen and judged in that light!

I’m Sipping On Sumn

So, its been forever since I made me a post so here I am!!! Still alive and(in my humble opinion) better off and just about ready to demolish anything the world throws at me.

Anyways, I was walking down the street last night and listening  to the song “Single” by Li’l Wayne and browsing Facebook on my phone,  when I heard a voice say “good evening Mr. Senior”….me being lost in what I was doing merely  grunted “mmmm” then I noticed out the corner of my eye a li’l hesitation as if the person expected me to stop or something….I looked up and around and realized I was looking at the well shaped derrière of my ex….I was surprised but she had already gotten over her hesitation and moved on so I did the same….anyways…here is “Single” by Li’l Wayne….I dare you to play this song only once….I dare you…

Lets Become Strangers

The first real piece I wrote after my breakup. Let me know what you think….

Let’s Become Strangers

It is time

time to face the facts

time to stop lying to you

lying to me

it is time…

Time for us to become strangers

the essence which was your touch

needs to be forgotten

its effect diminished

your taste overwritten by another

woman’s flavour, (more…)

Support Matters

Did you know that two heads are better than one? Even though I am naturally a loner when it comes to important decisions, I have come to the realization that having someone who is always there for you through the cliched thick and thin helps out a whole lot. For instance, I am embarking on a whole new and potentially tumultuous portion of my life and it really helped me to know that there is at least one person who is willing to stick by your side and fight through the discomfort, uncertainty and fear which this will most likely bring.

Having that little bit of support has helped me to move a little more confidently towards achieving that end which I set out for. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those persons who have made this time a little easier by simply being there. You know yourselves so I won’t mention names, but it means the world to me to have you by my side.
