How To Make Your Life Better: FIGHT STRESS. Reduce or avoid stresses. If you want to live a happy life you must avoid stressing over certain things, especially things you cannot change or control. The older you get the better you'd understand what I'm saying. There are many stresses you should avoid in life but the most important are the ones you cannot control. For example; 1. Stress about growing old or aging. This is so futile. Anyone who stresses over his age or the fact that he is getting older is unreasonable. It is an added but completely unnecessary stress. It's taking a good amount of energy from you. Energy that you need for other pursuits and goals. Time must pass. Worrying about your age is akin to worrying about the passing of time. How ridiculous is that? 2. Stress about death or dying. You will die one day. So will I. Each day that passes by draws you closer to your appointed day. Whether it is at age 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 or 100, it is CERTAIN. In fact nothing in life is as certain as death. You don't need to waste useful energy stressing over dying. Prepare for it and live your life. Jesus came to deliver us not from death but from the FEAR of dying (Hebrews 2:15). 3. Stressing about the behavior or attitude of others. You cannot control the way people behave towards you or their attitude. The way they speak to you and how they respond or react to you. It is futile to stress over this. You could say something completely harmless and in jest and someone would be offended. Just move on. Don't lose your sleep over it. It is outside of your control. People will be who they are regardless of your goodness. Remember that the same crowd Jesus healed, fed and taught later said "Crucify Him". 4. Stressing about the past and past mistakes. Unless you have a Time Travel Machine that can defy the space-time continuum, let go of the past. No, you cannot unring the bell. You cannot unsing the song. You cannot unspeak the words. You cannot un-cum the cum. You cannot un-conceive the child. You cannot take back your anger. You cannot undo the deed. It's all done. Move on! It's gone. Forever!! Imagine trying to put the toothpaste back into the tube after pressing it out. You'd be frustrated. That's how it feels when you are always wishing and worrying about the past. That's why you should think hard and twice before saying a word or doing anything because you are essentially creating your past TODAY. Embrace your mistakes and mess-ups. LEARN from them. Laugh at yourself sometimes and move on gallantly. Don't take yourself too seriously, that way moving on becomes easy. 5. Stressing about your future. This last point might come as the only surprise to some of you, but it shouldn't. Stressing over your future is a waste of useful energy because you cannot change your future like that. You can only change YOU in the PRESENT. In other words, the only moment in time you and I have control over is TODAY. More specifically, how we behave in and invest our present moment. What we do and say NOW. How we conduct ourselves NOW. Our focus should be on TODAY rather than TOMORROW because only TODAY is under our control. Actually, TODAY was the FUTURE we saw YESTERDAY. Pause and think about that for a second. So when we prioritise TODAY we are really prioritising our FUTURE. Would make sense if you think deeply and lucidly about it. If you could avoud stressing over these five things, you would save enough energy to focus on the things that matter. Your success in life and business is often proportionate to the amount of energy you have. High energy means high Success. Low energy means small success. Mad energy means mad Success. Stress is a thief of energy. Fight it.

One of the very big lessons I learnt last year is the fact that; friendship can still strive beyond individual flaws. Like you're having an almost perfect friendship with someone, then in the course of the friendship you just realize there is this particular thing about them that keeps being the very hard stones in the almost perfect filtration. Not like they on their own part may not have been struggling to do better, but this just keep being an issue. Last year taught me, there is nothing mutual understanding and respect can't deal with, as long as what is at stake is not heinous or grievous enough to be in the spheres of inhumanity, but just a flaw that is just part of what makes one human. Happy new year to you all.

I’d love to hear your story if your an #wmscog ex-member. Why did you join? What prompted you? Why did you leave? What was the final straw? Was it theologically based? I’m looking to continue making videos on the #wmscogcult and would like to find out which areas need the most attention. PM me if you don’t want to be public 👍🏻
