Powers Of A Positive Attitude

     It is long but take time to go through it, it may yet change your lifestyle.
      Imagine this scenarios, first you are listening to your thoughts and try figuring out what fills your head, would you label them as positive or negative? Secondly imagine you're walking down the road with this thoughts, do you think anyone who would be meeting you will be able to tell what is in your mind?
       The answer to number one is upto you but the second one can be pretty generic. Although people may not tell exactly what you're thinking, but they may have a clue of how you're feeling. For instance when you enter a party filled with friends, do they all fall silent as if something terrible had just happened or does everybody perk up as if waiting for something exciting which is about to happen?.
        The answers to all this all depends with your frame of mind. Thoughts are very powerful, they affect your general attitude. The attitude you Carry reflects on your appearance,  too and unless, of course you're a great actor and it doesn't end there, your attitude can affect the people around you.
        Positive thoughts have a filling effect. They are admittedly invigorating plus the people around the person carrying positive thoughts are usually energized  by this type of attitude
       Negative thoughts on the other hand have a sapping affect on other people. Aside from making you look gloomy and sad, they can turn a festive gathering into a funeral wake.
       Having a positive attitude, you'll have to feature healthy thoughts which are probably hard to do nowadays, since all around us, the media feeds us with nothing but negative thoughts. A study shows that every 14 things A parent says to his/her child, only one is positive.  This is really a saddening thought.
        A healthier outlook comes with happy thoughts and enduldging in activities that trigger positive stimuli.
         You don not have much to lose by adopting a healthy and positive attitude. Studies show that such an attitude retards ageing, makes you healthier, helps you develope a better stress coping mechanism and has a very positive effect on people you meet daily. So what's not to like about a positive attitude? Adopt one today

Simplicity Is Today's Organ For Humanity

One day a rich dad decided to take his son for a walk in the village to a home of poor people, they spent the whole day there and on their way back home, the father asked , " Son how was the trip,?" The son replied," Fantastic dad.

" Then the father said to his son having seen how the poor lived he asked what he learned from the trip,the son replied,"We have a dog, they have four, we've got a sweeming pool, they have rivers, we've got a car, they have donkeys, we've a television, they have their families with them, we each have our own rooms, they stay and sleep together, we have a wall around our house, they welcome all, dad they are hospitable and warm, we are cold to our neighbours, thank you dady for showing me a practical lesson of what it means to be rich, we are rich yet poor, they are poor yet rich, I got what I lacked my home here,warmth of a family and the love of people around you, dad I think we are the poor ones," The father looked at his son startled.

What we have in life doesn't count,what counts is what we extend to the people around us, the love we give and favors we do, life is not all about having all the good things of life but having the simplicities that define how humane we are, having the social aspect and extending a hand to all who needs to hold it,,, if we have same meal on different plates then we haven't shared a meal, sharing a meal is eating from the same plate, no genius foot kicks a shoe away and cries that a thorn has pricked it

Please help us to save baby Ethan Kamoni who is in dire need of a liver transplant

Baby Ethan was born at the Aga Khan University Hospital on 2nd October 2015 and diagnosed with chronic liver disease resultant to liver failure. He has been in and out of various hospitals within Nairobi and he is in urgent need of liver surgery, which is the treatment for this condition and it is not offered in Kenya for infants.
When Baby Ethan was diagnosed with chronic liver disease, we were informed by the medical personnel’s that the condition is life threatening and time is of essence since he needs an urgent surgery that can only be carried out in India. Without Kshs. 7 million, no arrangement can be made to take Baby Ethan to India from Kenya.
We have embarked on getting that Kshs. 7 million, a task that has proved to be very difficult by the day since we have exhausted all we had as a family for the last 7 months for the same purpose. On realizing the daunting task ahead we have decided to sub-divide the project into three major phases namely; Departure to India, Surgery at Global Hospital in India and Post treatment in Kenya.
Phase one involves getting the necessary travel documents for Baby Ethan, the mother Yvonne (liver donor) and the dad Ken; and the clearance of the hospital bills at the hospitals he was admitted, and this phase was successfully completed. We are now appealing to the well-wishers to help us from phase two as we are in urgent need to raise the money to facilitate his travel and surgery.
We trust God that through your support, the story of Baby Ethan will move from being a sad one to an inspiring one. Any support, prayers and advice will be highly appreciated. Contributions can be done via mpesa pay bill business number 734613, account number add your name.
For more information please do not hesitate to call Yvonne Mumbi on 0715 804740 or Kennedy Mwangi on 0722 839817 or Dr. Wacheke Kombe on 0711 279079.

Time To Wake Up

Each morning waking up and wondering if life is really worth . Our doors are full of bars and roads broken glass we can't pass or step on comfortably. But who do we blame, it is us and the input we put in life,characterised by our actions. If I wake up in the morning to follow smoke that leads me to where soup is ready, will I sit down a beat my chest saying I know how to make soup? I don't think so, the best I can do is give a compliment and the credit goes to the one who made it. That is how we are living, always dreaming of big things yet we forsake small details that count..remember a house isn't made up of stones alone, their is combination of concrete too, so is life, it ain't made up of big success only,,,small things we archieve mount up to make big things...lets wake up from the dilution of expecting big yet the small are forsaken and we end up staying on the fence as others feast

#IStandWithCarolyn #Medication #Hiptransplant #surgery ~ Her story

 #IStandWithCarolyn #Medication #Hiptransplant #surgery ~ Her story

The day was on Saturday 1st, Feb 2014, at around 10am. I left home (obviously after a deep emotional, journey-mercies prayer from my mum, you know how wonderful mothers are when it comes to safety of their children) for Kisii town,accompanied with my immediate sister to embark
on my journey back to Nairobi.
We arrived,headed to Transline Classic offices and at around 11am, our PSV shuttle, KBH 460W, took off. My seat was No. 3 from the front. I was seated in between two ladies, Risper and Wilkister (it's
good to know your neighbor especially if it's a long journey, at least to have some light moments
you know).
Upon reaching Keumbu, (some place well known for sweet sugar canes, bananas,avocados, name them) some passengers requested the driver to pull over 'wanunulie watoto ndizi'. After a few minutes, our journey commenced.
Reaching Keroka, almost all of the passengers had already taken a nap, except for the driver of course and I coz I was playing games on my phone with some 10yr old boy who was Risper's Son.
Just a few meters away from
Keroka town, I also got tired and unknowingly fell asleep, with my phone in my hands coz I wanted
to text my other sister who lives along Keroka-Sotik highway and notify her that I'm going back.
Unfortunately that never happened. Mine was more than a nap coz I slept, totally.
From here,the only thing I remember upto date, was being woken up by a loud bang, screams and sounds of
shattering glasses. I was lost in my sleep, so I didn't know where I was or what had happened.
My spirit was far away from this world, coz I found myself in some sort of desert, all alone.
I gathered my thoughts, then I started conversing within my self "Well I know I was going to Nrb,but I know sijafika. If I'm dead, Okay, if I'm aliveOkay still".
Then I decided now to try and shake
my head to confirm whether I was still in this world. I moved! It was magical (no one wants to die before achieving their dreams). So I opened
my eyes.
That's when reality hit me that an
accident had occurred. What followed next was a loud scream "Nitoeni tafadhali Niko hai". The lady
on my right wasn't moving, the one on my left, I didn't even see her.
My vision was blurred, especially when I saw the driver sandwiched
between the steering and his seat, blood oozing from his ears. People surrounded within minutes with mamas shouting for help.
They tried opening the car door, it wasn't moving an inch. The windshield was wide open so I asked some guy to pull me out through it. I reached for his hands
pushed myself out.
When I touched the ground, that's when I realized I couldn't move at, all.
I had dislocated my leg. I pleaded for help, helplessly, coz I wasn't bleeding much and I was afraid that I had internal bleeding. Sotik traffic
police arrived on time and ordered another Transline vehicle headed the opposite direction to rush us to Kaplong Hospital.
I was among the first victims. On the road, lay a lifeless body of some bodaboda guy who caused our vehicle swerve off the road. I was admitted at Kaplong for 5 days and got discharged. One journalist and
one lady lost their lives, may they rest in Paradise.#RIP
That never meant that I was safe either coz upon reaching Nairobi, I developed chest complications and would be unable to breath.
I was rushed to MP Shah Hospital, where they asked for 300k to put me in ICU coz I had a blood clot. Well that was a huge amount, so we
requested that they refer me to KNH. That's where I was admitted for 3weeks, until the clot finally dissolved.
Thanks to Dr Ndavi.
My left leg was swollen for almost the whole of that year;But last year I was very okay until sometime in
Nov when the pain came back,
Of course all along I had been going for my physiotherapy sessions but this time the leg proved 'stubborn'.
An MRI was conducted Jan this year which showed that I had developed a condition known as Avascular Necrosis. I was adviced to seek
further medical attention at AIC Kijabe Hospital.
This is where I was last month and the orthopaedic consultant said I need a total hip replacement surgery, with a deposit of Ksh500k,
to enable me walk again, with an actual amount of 800-900k.
This why I have shared my story,
though in it there's still a lot I've left out. I am kindly appealing to you my friends, relatives and well wishers to help me raise the finances and get
my leg fixed.
Fixing my leg means getting my life
Contributions can be sent to my phone
number 0727 488 261, I'll be able to post a pay bill account number soon.
Thank you and may
God bless you.

The Best University Graduate

"Academic excellence is overrated! I said it. Being top of your class does not necessarily guarantee that you will be at the top of life. You could graduate as the best student in Finance but it doesn't mean you will make more money than everybody else. The best graduating Law student does not necessarily become the best lawyer. The fact is life requires more than the ability to understand a concept, memorise it and reproduce it in an exam. School rewards people for their memory. Life rewards people for their imagination. School rewards caution, life rewards daring. School hails those who live by the rules. Life exalts those who break the rules and set new ones. So do I mean people shouldn't study hard in school? Oh, no, you should. But don't sacrifice every other thing on the altar of First Class. Don't limit yourself to the classroom. Do something practical. Take a leadership position. Start a business and fail. That's a better Entrepreneurship 101.Join or start a club. Contest an election and lose. It will teach you something Political Science 101 will not teach you. Attend a seminar. Read books outside the scope of your course. Go on missions and win a soul for eternal rewards. Do something you believe in! Think less of becoming an excellent student but think more of becoming an excellent person. Make the world your classroom. Step forward try politics, try business, try an extra thing great person. ~ WhatsApp Group

Negativity is Today's Delusion against postive living

A Brighter today

"Today is a brand new day. A fresh start. Replace any negativity with positivity.

Think happy thoughts. Exercise. Drink lots of water. Fill your body with fuel. Healthy is happy. Inspire yourself. Create. Laugh. Play. Love. Learn. Give someone a compliment.

Make a new friend. Do a random act of kindness. It creates good karma. Take chances and finally start living life to its fullest. But no matter what's thrown at you today, smile and remember, tomorrow's always a fresh new start.

Assuredly ; Mary and Joseph never went on a date and they became Jesus's parents  ; don't wait for that pizza date at steers or shopping at Walmart with bae to be the determinant of your happiness today.

Make a life for yourself, let no one imprison your source of happinesses today.Cheer up guys and forget to leave evergreen comments and credit where it's due .

The Courage and Faith for successful Leadership

Hello family, we must realize that leadership believes that nothing is impossible and that there is not just one way to solve problems. 

They never surrender to limitations and are not afraid to fail.  You will never do anything great unless you are willing to fail.  People who are afraid of failure never accomplish success. 

Leaders are willing to try anything once.  People who do not venture, never have an adventure.  God is a God of adventure.  He told Abraham that He would take him to a place that he did not know.  Leaders engage the unknown with faith and courage.  You have to be courageous to be innovative.great day people.

Steve Jobs Last words as A Successful Business Mentor.

 Steve Jobs Last words as A Successful Business Mentor.

Steve jobs’ Last Words -
I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.
However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.
At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death
In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer…
Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth…
Should be something that is more important: Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days
Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.
God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth.
The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me. What I can bring is only the memories precipitated by love.
That’s the true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.
Love can travel a thousand miles.  Life has no limit. Go where you want to go. Reach the height you want to reach. It is all in your heart and in your hands.
What is the most expensive bed in the world?  Sick bed
You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you.
Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – Life.
When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – Book of Healthy Life.
Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.
Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends.Treat yourself well. Cherish others.

A Babys' Name Determines Her Destiny

A Baby's' Name Determines Her Destiny

Naming a new baby sounds fun, but it’s actually kind of a high-pressure situation. After all, the name you slap on that birth certificate is their name for life (or at least until they’re 18 and can legally change it). If you don’t want to go along with the overwhelming number of Twilight names — 

So what’s a parent to do? Well, you don’t need to resort to the ever-popular “just make something up” option (Kazzideee? Tscharly? North?!). There are already plenty of perfectly good names out there that are just waiting to be rediscovered. Take some inspiration from this list of outstanding baby names with vintage provenances.
This pleasingly old-timey boys’ name — which has the same Latin and Greek roots as ambrosia, the immortality-providing nectar of the gods — is just begging for a revival. There’s a Saint Ambrose, but it’s probably most known from the late 19th century author Ambrose Bierce. It doesn’t even rank in the U.S. as a baby name, making it even more ripe for the picking.
This gilded girls’ name is the feminine version of the Roman Aurelius, a name most notably held by the emperor and Stoic philosopher Marcus Aurelius. More recently, Aurelia is the name of the maid character in Love Actually. After not showing up on the charts for decades, this one currently comes in at #833 among American baby names.
While you could use (and pronounce) this unisex name like the spice, the more classic pronunciation is “BAH-zul” — it actually comes from a Greek word meaning “king.” Either pronunciation is lovely though, or this name isn’t even on the radar in the U.S.

Here’s the thing with names:There are always going to be lots of different associations people have withthem. In the case of this boys’ name, it might be Anchorman. But sometimesa name is just too wonderful, and you have to get past it. Plus by the timeyour kid is 20, are people still going to be quoting Ron Burgundy? (Okay, maybethey will be. But Baxter’s still a terrific name.)
This boys’ name (pronounced “BLEZ,” from the French, rather than “BLAZE”) is a classic saint name, and also the first name of the famed French mathematician for whom a unit of pressure, a programming language, and lots more are named. This one just cracks the top 1,000 American boys’ names, at #912.
Though this is commonly a boys’ name (well, insofar as it is common — it’s a pretty rare name), it would also be perfect for a girl. It sounds debonair, but, oh, the nickname possibilities! Carly or Lila, Carl or Lyle… this one is just spoiling for a comeback. Despite having a Twilight provenance, it’s never been in the top 1,000 U.S. baby names.
The female version of this name — Clementine — has revived in popularity, but Clement hasn’t been so fortunate. Yet, that is. This name, from the Latin for merciful or gentle, has been the name of saints, at least one pope, and Clement Moore, the author of “A Visit from St. Nicholas” (aka “The Night before Christmas”). Plus how terrific is “Clem” as a nickname?
This girls’ name sounds quite modern, but it’s actually very ancient. Often attributed as a shortening of Cleopatra (the Greek “kleos” means “glory”), it’s also one letter off from Clio, who was the Greek muse of history. In the past it’s also gained some traction as a boys’ name, but as of now it’s been unranked among popular U.S. baby names for decades.
Boys’ names with a vaguelyliterary provenance — no, not just Twilight, think “Atticus” and “Gatsby”— are popular right now. Dashiell remains off the radar though, despite lendingitself to the most, well, dashing nickname ever (Dash!). It’s thename of basically one person, author Dashiell Hammett, and author of TheMaltese Falcon, The Thin Man, and many more classic detective stories. (Ifwe’re going to get technical too, though he authored books under it, Dashiellwas actually his middle name.) Nonetheless, this unusual moniker might be aboutto blow up.
This is a French version of a Greek name, which though some say is related to “dolphin” is more likely related to “Delphi,” the site of a famed oracle in Greek mythology. It shares this derivation with the flower Delphinium. Why’d it make this list? This obscure name — pretty much last seen in Balzac’s novels — deserves a comeback!
Another literary name, most famously attached to the acclaimed southern author Flannery O’Connor. (Another case where it was technically her middle name.) Though baby names that are Irish last names (or at least sound like them, courtesy of the Cullens of Twilight) are super-popular, somehow Flannery isn’t. Pre-O’Connor, it was actually more common as a boys’ name, but now it’s firmly in the girls’ camp. And how sweet (literally!) of a nickname is Flan?

Thanks to the Pope’s popularity, the name Francis is making a solid comeback. Somehow though, the girls’ version is not — yet anyway (it’s in the top 1,000 baby names for girls, but hardly popular). Meaning, more or less, “French,” it’s the name of people from author Frances Hodgson Burnett (The Secret Garden) to Kurt Cobain’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain.
Biblical names (think Michael and David) are consistently popular for boys, and Gideon is just beginning to get up there. If you’re looking for a truly classic boys’ name that hasn’t been overdone, look no further.
This boys’ name sounds masculine and rugged, yet sexy (and okay, yes, no one thinks of their baby that way, but remember the name needs to fit for life). It’s derived from the definitely unsexy Welsh name “Gruffudd,” which was a common name among Welsh royals back in the day — well, way back in the day. This name seems like it would be popular, but it’s never charted in the U.S.
You may think of the irasciblecartoon cat, but what you should think of is the ultimate swoon worthy romantichero from Wuthering Heights. Emily Bronte created the name for thecharacter, thus dreaming up possibly the best made-up name of all time. Despiteawesome nickname possibilities — Cliff or (double swoon!) Heath — this name hasnot made it into the top 1,000 baby names in the U.S.

Henry has become super-popular for boys, but why not Hugo? Most commonly associated with the French author Victor Hugo (Les Miserable, The Hunchback of Notre Dame), this name was originally a variant of Hugh. An extremely common name overseas, it’s unclear why this moniker — cute on a little boy, manly on an adult — hasn’t caught on here.
Jasper is more commonly a boys’ name, but it would also be terrific for a girl (it’s definitely got plucky and resourceful connotations, like Scout). We often associate it with the gemstone, but it actually comes from Persian (“treasurer”) — it’s sometimes given to one of the three Magi. Of all the names in this list, this is the only one that currently has any traction on the top baby names listings.
The actual origins of this name are unknown, but this name quite the literary pedigree. Lavinia is the last wife of Aeneas in Homer’s Aeneid (a role which was expanded upon in Ursula K. Le Guin’s 2008 novel Lavinia), who also shows up in Dante’s Divine Comedy. There’s also a Lavinia in Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus. Also: The potential nickname Vinnie. Vinnie!

Though this pretty girls’ name sounds Spanish, it’s actually derived from Latin — the feminine form of the Roman name Marcellus, which is a diminutive of Marcus, which is a name that comes from Mars, the Roman god of war. But still Marcella — such a beautiful name, and almost never heard in the United States.
Girls’ names that had gone out of fashion (like Harriet and Penelope) have made strong comebacks, but somehow Millicent hasn’t. And why not? Face it, Milly (or Millie) is a delightful nickname. This name traces its roots back quite far, all the way to the Germanic name “Amalsuintha” (nowthere’s an old-fashioned name), which combines words that mean “work” and “strength.”
Originally derived from an English last name that started out as a nickname meaning “bear cub” — seriously, how cute is that? And yet this name is most strongly associated with a famed pillar of American cinema, Orson Welles.
So you like the name Owen, but you’d like to be a bit different. Why not give this boys’ name a go? Popular in England but exceedingly rare on this side of the pond, it’s a variant on a medieval German term for wealth or fortune. Though it doesn't rank in the U.S., this name has a great pedigree with famous folks like soul singer Otis Redding sharing it.
This adorable and old-fashioned boys’ name is just begging to be brought into modern times. Originally derived from an English last name, it’s never cracked the name charts in the U.S.
Depending on the pronunciation,this lovely girls’ name finds its roots in the Middle East or North Africa. As“SID-ra,” it’s an Islamic name referring to what is often translated as thelotus tree, which Muhammad saw when he ascended to the highest level of heaven.Pronounced “SEE-dra,” it’s a Hebrew-derived name meaning order. However you sayit, it’s an interesting and unusual moniker.

This lovely name, which has Greek origins, belonged to several Byzantine empresses. Though the male version, Theodore, is in the top 200 of boys’ names, the girls’ version has never been in the top 1,000, despite lending itself to adorable nicknames. Teddy, Dora, or what about a girl Theo? You’ve got plenty of possibilities.

Finitely everyone longs to meet success or be successful in life.Unfortunately,many have waited for it as one will wait for a betting or a lottery award :

If only we created micro success each second in our lives rather than waiting for the White Elephant,we would be custodians of genius success stories.

"Lets pursue excellence and success would chase us suite,
On such bright Sunday of this kind, everyone ought to recall that "our Lord never created us to be ahead of others but to be ahead of ourselves,cumulative development."

To say though unlucky, some would sacrifice to make other small so that to look superior.
