MARILYN ANONA writes: Greed leads to you pulling another down to establish your place above them.

Its been a long break. Sorry I had to take some time off. I got your messages and emails and sincerely I am very happy to know that a lot of people go through my posts on daily basis enough to miss me when I don’t post. I am back.                   

  Today I want to talk about GREED! Greed is a very bad trait that is very harmful too. Greed! Wanting more and more and more of what you are actually entitled to have. Being greedy usually means that you will stop at nothing to get the things you want. You don’t care who gets hurt in the process. Greed is a very negative trait. If you are greedy you won’t get far in life because you will always be worried about what you don’t have and never appreciate what you already have. A greedy person is never satisfied.              Now let me correct something! Greed is not equal to AMBITION. I see and hear lots pro-greeders speak of greed as a driving force in the progression of society. This is completely false. Greed is not a motivational force, not at all. At least not a motivation to push boundaries and to achieve greatness.
A greedy man only sees what someone else has and wants to take it from them. An ambitious man sees that same someone else, and whats to reach greater heights than that man. There is a difference.
Greed is false feeling that you are and/or deserve something. Greed is not an aim to be something better. It is to take that something better that someone else has for yourself. Not the ambition to reach that level yourself.
A greedy man only wants what he doesn’t have. It was not greed that lead to the invention of the mobile phones for example. That was innovation and ambition. Ambition to be the greatest. Ambition drives your will to propel yourself past where you are, and past everyone else. Inventors are ambitious people.
Greed is wanting without having earned. Greed is the person who said “I could have invented that. I thought of it first. I deserve it.” Greed leads to you pulling another down to establish your place above them.
Bottomline is, greed is bad! We should all try to be aware of this feeling and get rid of it anytime it comes…                                         

  How do you know you are a greedy person?     

1. You enter a shop, buy things and when you are leaving, the cashier gives you 500 Naira extra as your balance. What will you do?                                                                  

 ***** A greedy person will keep the extra and justify it with “after all, its her mistake not mine” or “wow! Blessing in disguise”.          But a fellow who is not greedy will return the extra.                                                             

  2. You are a greedy person if you believe that…                                                                         

  ***** Greed is a natural impulse, based on our survival instinct this is what a greedy person says.                                                   

  3. How do you feel when you walk into a department store?                                            

 ***** You are a greedy person if you get depressed and sad about the things you can’t have.                                                     

  4. You are a married woman and a man is offering you some money to sleep with you.   

***** you are greedy if you accept to do that.                                                    
5. Do you ever remember the needy?               

***** Greedy people find it hard to be charitable. They don’t give! They are selfish.    

 These are few ways to know if you are a greedy person. Greedy people love to receive and hate to give. Greed can bring jealousy and envy. Greed impedes success! Say no to greed today…

MENSES MENSES

There are so many things we neglect especially things concerning our health. We neglect them and regard them as normal probably because we feel no pain when those things happen to us or we just choose to ignore and adapt to them.

I should say this article is exclusively for women. But the men have sisters, girlfriends and even wives, you should also get them to read this and be aware of what they pass through.

A normal menstrual cycle does not interfere with a woman’s ability to function normally… If she is concerned about having to run to the bathroom frequently or if she is experiencing a lot of pain or discomfort, that is not normal.

I have a friend who experiences this issue, every time she is on her period, she uses a whole pack of “always” sanitary pads daily. Very heavy flow of blood, without asking…

Kunle changed the channel just because the presenter was talking about fatness…

Omalivingshow

Most times, We shy away or become unnecessarily aggressive when issues that concern us are discussed. It was so funny when Kunle changed the channel just because the presenter was talking about fatness and the need to lose some weight. I asked him why he changed the channel and he said, what is it with fat people all the time? Why don’t they talk about slim people. Now Kunle is fat and took the television presentation personal. I tried to explain to him to the best of my knowledge why being fat may not be advisable but he shut me up by telling me he is way older than I am and I know nothing. Saying it was just trendy to be slim and there is nothing wrong about being fat. It was so funny yet disturbing… Yes being slim doesn’t mean you are fit and being fat doesn’t mean…

ITS TIME FOR US TO BE OUR OWN POLICE, BE VIGILANT!

Nyanya bomb blast 14th of April 2014

Nyanya bomb blast 14th of April 2014

President saddened by loss of lives in Nyanya bombing. President has ordered heightened security in Abuja following Nyanya bombing… Is that all? The president is always saddened by each act of terror but after the sadness no solution? The state of emergency ordered did not work. The entire Northeast is a lawless jungle. The anomie is spreading southwards, Abuja is threatened. What and where next?
For readers who are uninterested in official lies and cover ups; Nyanya, is a surburb of Abuja after Asokoro. It is nearer the city than Kubwa and Lugbe and about five minutes drive from Mogadishu barracks that was bombed a while back. Nyanya “under bridge” is the most populated place in Abuja per square metre every workday of the week during early morning rush hour and at the close of business.
Why has Nigeria refused to learn from other countries on how they have reacted swiftly against terror? Why are law enforcement always caught napping? The death toll escalates daily, why?

Bomb blast in Nyanya, Abuja

Bomb blast in Nyanya, Abuja

Online, there were pictures of victims from the explosion dumped like rotten garbage inside dump trucks. One dead man was carted in a wheelbarrow! Why are we like this? Why are we so inhuman? Why are we the way we are? How did we get here? When will we evolve enough to earn the noun “Human”. Is it too much to ask that National Emergency Management Agency(NEMA) provide body bags at times of rescue and recovery like this? The body of these victims deserve better. The gory pictures we saw had the dignity of yams and farm produce. There was no dignity befitting human beings in the transportation of the dead at the scene. For all we care, body bags must have been included in the budget of these agencies for emergencies like this.

It is possible they have body bags but someone may have sold it to morgues and private hospitals or pocketed the allotted money. What kind of country are we in? We don’t even have ordinary level decency?

The federal government spends a lot of money every year training personnel abroad. Has the training been utilized at times like this? Bless the memory of these victims oh Lord and give succor to their families.

From eyewitness account, a golf car must have been used in this attack to house the bomb before it was detonated. The way our law enforcement agencies are configured, the bodies will be collected, the wounded will be taken to hospital and the trail will go cold without investigation until the next attack. Perhaps, the time is ripe to police ourselves.

We as citizens need to be more aware and vigilant. Vigilance is key in combating terrorism. As citizens, we should watch out for any person or persons wearing clothes with protruding bulges or exposed wires under clothing, people or cars emitting strange chemical odors, be on the alert and observe any person murmuring as if saying a prayer in crowded places, or anyone who pushes to gain a position amid a crowd or near an important person. Suicide bombers often do not maintain eye contact, they sweat profusely, exhibit excessive hand movements, bite their nails and chew the inside of the mouth.

Bomb Blast Nyanya under bridge.

Bomb Blast Nyanya under bridge.

These are signs you must look for in people as you frequent densely populated public places. Be alert and be aware of your surroundings. Citizen action can help prevent attacks from happening. We must begin to protect ourselves since nothing agitates our leaders except the 2015 elections. I urge you to do your part in saving Nigeria. Those who have worked in conflict zones believe we will hit rock bottom before we can have sanity in this land. Unfortunately, rock bottom is the pits of hell littered with human remains!

I have a friend who experiences this issue, every time she is on her period, she uses a whole pack of “always” sanitary pads daily. Very heavy flow of blood, without asking a doctor, does it sound normal?                         Most women experience heavy flow once in a while, but for some… Its heavy flow all the way! The easiest way to know when your flow is very heavy is the number of times you have to change your pads because its too full and not because of hygiene. If you have to change your pad every 2 to 3hours you are in this category. If you have your menstruation for over 6 days, then you are also in this category.

There are many reasons why you are experiencing heavy menstrual flow. The most common causes of menorrhagia or heavy menstrual bleeding are…

***** Uterine fibroid tumours are very common cause of excessive menstruation but most women do not know this. When you have excessive heavy flow during your period, it could be a sign of fibroid. This is why you should not ignore or overlook it. Therefore, its important you go to the hospital and get yourself checked.

***** Heavy menstrual flow can also be caused by hormonal imbalance. During adolescence after girls have their first periods, and for several years before the onset of menopause when menstruation ceases, our hormones levels are fluctuating which often leads to excessive uterine bleeding during our periods. It’s often possible to treat menorrhagia caused by hormonal imbalances, please see your doctor today.

***** Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an infection of one or more organs that affects the uterus, fallopian tubes, and cervix. Its another cause of heavy menstrual flow. PID is, most often, a sexually transmitted disease; however, it sometimes occurs following childbirth, abortion, or other gynecological procedures. The recommended treatment for pelvic inflammatory disease is antibiotic therapy.

***** Cervical cancer is another cause of heavy menstrual flow. This is a very bad cancer and most women don’t realize it till it gets bad. Please there is need for you to visit a hospital today if you usually have very heavy flow to be able to know the real cause of it.

These are some of the causes of heavy menstrual flow. There are several others… There is need for you to take care of yourself. Do not neglect your health which is very important. Don’t spend all your time at the boutique, hair salon, makeup parlour and be so dry and dirty inside. Women can experience heavy menstrual bleeding at any age, but it may occur more often as you near menopause and begin to skip periods so when you do bleed, the flow may be heavier than normal. So why should you be experiencing this at say 25,28, 30 or 32???       Visit a doctor today… Talking openly with your doctor will get you the answers you need and the treatment to manage your heavy periods so that you can stop dreading that time of the month.

HEALTH
Most people do not like garlic and will not want to eat it because of the smell it leaves in your breath hours after you have eaten it. But we are quick to forget the saying “NO PAIN, NO GAIN”. This saying is also applicable to garlic. Garlic is a gift to mankind but we don’t want to bear the little disadvantage of eating it which is the smell. The benefits obtained from the consumption of garlic outweighs the smell. Maybe most of us will ignore this notorious smell of garlic and start eating it when they learn of these benefits.
***** We are all aware of the high rate of heart diseases and high blood pressure in our society. Most people are suffering from high blood pressure. Some don’t even know it. The good news is, garlic can lower your blood pressure. This is because it can lower platelet stickiness thereby making the blood thinner or easier to flow.
***** Most people are also suffering from diabetes. Garlic also can reduce your blood sugar level. ***** Then there is the issue of high cholesterol level which is everywhere now. Garlic can reduce your high cholesterol. This is because it has high antioxidant properties.
***** Garlic fights cold and flu. So you should always chew some to prevent cold or consume when you have cold already.
***** Garlic is antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial so it fights a whole lot of diseases. ***** Garlic fights cancer.
***** People who eat garlic are not easily bitten by insects.
These are just few benefits of garlic. Garlic is extremely good and I encourage you to bone the smell and be nice to your health. Its best to eat garlic when they are fresh to get the benefits. This is because once open, the active ingredient is killed and becomes inactive. This makes garlic pills useless. If you must eat garlic, eat it fresh.
Eat some garlic today.
