Rekindled Old friendships

The people that love me unreasonably and unconditionally make me marvel and at the same time wonder what it is that I did or do to evoke such a wealth and depth of feeling toward me. 
I won‘t say that I am a really bad person because I‘m not, well half of me isn‘t anyway, but such feelings make one question life and be thankful at the same time.
I rekindled a friendship I had no business of breaking in the first place but due to misplaced loyalty, I had to. On the day I actually sat down and thought of all my friends and the new friendships I had made, I couldn't help but think of this one that I‘d let go of because of circumstances.  This particular person was and still is good to me. 
I remembered how good it was between us and the good things that she had done for me.  With all this going through my mind, I decided to let loyalty be damned and reach out.
You‘d expect someone you haven‘t talked to in almost a year to have a bit of an attitude or be at least a bit wary towards you, no? Surprisingly, this person was more receptive and warm. And in that moment, she reminded me of why we became friends in the first place and why I missed how  it had been between us. And she made me be thankful to God for having people like her in the world.
Everything fell into place and it was like we'd never taken a break from the friendship. Friendships like these remind me that there is or are a few good things in this world and they should be appreciated for what they are.
I‘m a firm believer in ‘the less friends one has, the better‘ but if you have someone who really loves you unreasonably and unconditionally in your corner, don‘t let them go out of some misguided sense of loyalty to another person. Let them sort their issues out without your involvement because you will be the one left holding the short end of the stick. Friendships like these should be treasured for what they are.
To all the old and new friends: you make me who I am.

The Power Of Association

One of my best friends sent me this quote and as I went through it; I reflected on the people I surround myself with both family and friends. There are friendships that I let go of during the course of the year and as I did that: I realized that the fewer friends you have, the better. It is said that,”The friends we keep define who we are as a person”…well, I didn’t want to be defined by such people because who they are is not the person that I am.
I am proud of the set of friends that I keep and maintain now because they are good people. They have been there for me in more ways than they could ever know. It is partly due to them I am who I am at the moment and I am happy about it and I appreciate them more. Here goes the quote….
"The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting…

I Love Technology.

I am a lover of technology despite the fact that it changes all the time. It is one thing that will never remain constant... Maybe that is why I love it? All the application, software creators put out something new, a few tweaks to their applications and software which is a good thing due to the multitude of competition out there. I always marvel at what comes out to help the user when it comes to software, applications and programs.Recently, I was reading a book using Adobe Reader. Whenever I would start the program to continue with the book, it would bring up a notification for an upgrade to Adobe Reader X which I would unfortunately ignore because; I tend to read when I don't have an internet connection.I decided to bookmark the link so as not to forget about the upgrade. I usually bookmark websites that I visit time to time and find interesting, links I need to check out for software upgrades and installations.After getting an internet subscription, downloading Adobe Reader X …

Obsession: The Fat Doctor.

Most of you know I am a certified TV addict who watches anything and everything.
Currently, I am obsessed with the TV show The Fat Doctor. It is about a certain Doctor at a hospital who gives hope and gastric bypass surgery (cut their stomach to the size of an egg) to the morbidly obese. I found out that now Britain has the largest number of morbidly obese patients and that the number of people who have had this surgery done rose from 600 a year to 100,000. Last time I knew, America had the largest number of morbidly obese citizens with Alabama being the fattest state in America.
It is typically not something I would watch but the stories told by the patients, the state of their health and appearance as they go about their day to day lives is touching. The surprising bit about the show are the different reasons as to why the patients are morbidly obese with each episode – Early puberty, loss, divorce, genetics, environment, depression etc. I find them all valid and beyond questionab…
