I Told Him, I'd Catch All The Colourful Balls He'll Throw At Me

Sometimes when our life hit a plateau, we think that we are not making use of our potentials. There are things that we can explore, but don't see them yet. Are they not around? or they are around but we are just too ignorant? That's why, because of this thought, I've been praying for opportunities to come to me, and even if it means I have to work harder, I have to sacrifice more and I might have to go extra miles just to grab  them all. Recently, I see the opportunities coming, almost all at once. Then I remember my prayers. My good God, He's giving me what I want. Then I had a really bad time just now when my expectation just gets high, and I realized I was unable to do them all at once! My head hurt. Darn. What did I say to God again? That I will have a way to deal with them, right? Then what happened? 

Now I see. That where the challenge is. It's not directly from the opportunities but how I deal with them in trying to fulfill my own expectation. So I imagine myself catching all the colourful balls that God throws at me, and I hope my hands are never full to catch them on time. At least I'm doing my first step. I want to improve my life, myself and to maximize even more all my potentials.and I'll get busy catching the balls. 

He's answering my prayers. Give me the strength to do all my responsibilities.And thank you Lord, for some magical reason, I really find out that the more I spend time with you, the more I feel that You're always there for me and my loved ones. Totally Blessed. Alleluia.

MEN, according to Oprah Winfrey

"If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away. 
If he doesn't want you, nothing can make him stay. Stop making excuses for a man and his behavior. Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache. Stop trying to change yourself for a relationship that's not meant to be. Slower is better. Never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy. If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve then heck no, you can't "be friends". A friend wouldn't mistreat a friend. 

 Don't settle. If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is. Don't stay because you think "it will get better." You'll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better. The only person you can control in a relationship is you. Avoid men who have a bunch of children by a bunch of different women. He didn't marry them when he got them pregnant, why would he treat you any differently? Always have your own set of friends separate from his. Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you. If something bothers you, speak up. Never let a man know everything. He will use it against you later.

You cannot change a man's behavior. Change comes from within. Don't EVER make him feel he is more important than you are. Even if he has has more education or in a better job. Do not make him into a quasi-god. He is a man, nothing more nothing less.

Never let a man define who you are. Never borrow someone else's man. If he cheated with you, he'll cheat on you. A man will only treat you the way you ALLOW him to treat you. All men are NOT dogs.

You should not be the one doing all the bending... Compromise is two way street. You need time to heal between relationships. There is nothing cute about baggage... Deal with your issues before pursuing a new
relationship. You should never look for someone to COMPLETE you. A relationship consists of two WHOLE individuals. Look for someone complimentary...
not supplementary.

Dating is fun... Even if he doesn't turn out to be Mr. Right. Make him miss you sometimes... When a man always know where you are, and you're always readily available to him ~ he takes it for granted. Never move into his mother's house. Never co-sign for a man. Don't fully commit to a man who doesn't give you everything that you need. Keep him in your radar but get to know others.

Scared of being alone is what makes a lot of women stay in relationships that are abusive or hurtful: Dr. Phil says... You should know that: You're the best thing that could ever happen to anyone and if a man mistreats you, he'll miss out on a good thing. If he was attracted to you in the 1st place, just know that he's not the only one. They're all watching you, so you have a lot of choices. Make the right one. Ladies take care of your own hearts.."

Note: I copied this from a Facebook status. Whether or not it's from Oprah, it's still valid and relevant. Take care of yourself well, ladies...:))
