I want to believe you are all well
How awesome is God, he never forgets, he rewards, he compesates.
So it seems most folks aren't prepared for what is next? It is either one of two things: a) The question was misunderstood b) Most of the folks belong to the same sample group with a consistent commonality.
For me, next step for me will be marriage and progressing my career. I kind of got them covered in that I know what course to go on next blah de blah. As per marriage I am as ready as can be except SELFISHNESS. I suppose you can only learn to be selfless when there is another to consider so I am not fazed about that. Although not being able to hop and jet out Lasgidi, Taj Mahal or LA at my own will is gonna be tardy bit difficult. No worries will cross that bridge when we get there.
I also discovered that as financially astute as I claim to be with monthly spreadsheet of shares bought, bank balance et al, I DO NOT ACTUALLY HAVE A BUDGET TALK LESS OF STICK TO IT. What a rude awakening!
I spend on whim and generally don't know how much I spend in a month....(insert eyes popping here). I only assess after the damage is done with statements like "wow seems as if I spent a lot last month sha!" or "what exactly did I buy last month?!" or the classic standing at the cash machine frowning "I thought I had more than that in the account?!"
I have since drawn up a budget and must tell you my outgoing is whack...if not that I get a decent pay....no wonder folks find it difficult to save.
In the spirit of savings and belt tightening, I am taking up a lodger. Whatever rent they pay me goes towards the "Dubai is calling me fund". Wisdom is profitable to direct ko. You are also welcome to donate to the fund it will be judiciously disbursed preferably no Dollars please. I accept Naira, Pounds and Yen.
Some gists on hot drinks and heart attack
The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals, not cold water, maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating.For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this "sludge" reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine . Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer . It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.A serious note about heart attacks - You should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware.
Dunno how true the gist is (I am not doctor o), let Dr Lamikanra come and talk.
