TGIF *Thank God For Sure*

Thank God It’s Friday:

Oh yeah, Thank the guy up there (God) that today is Friday. For taking care of us and seeing us through this week, 5 days is not a joke. Find some time to say thank you to God and to anyone who’s made your week bearable … it’s always those small things that make the whole difference..right?

I’m Feeling

Ecstatic – Giggly, twittery (it’s actually a word), chuckly !

I’m Excited

That after all the struggle…which was all worth it …(ps: I didn’t have the same thought 48hrs ago, I was actually thinking this life is too hard, and being grown up is just a pain in the a**) I finally got myself a small house, just the way I wanted it. So again me thanks God big time and the people who helped out in any way, because in the end it all contributed in one or another.

Looking Forward to:

A road trip to Luhya Land on the weekend. how I had longed for one. YAAAY!!! *Excitoz*

Finally start budgeting and planning bleh bleh bleh, all those responsibilities that come with staying solo [don't hate, don't tell me how hard it is...searching for the house was bad enough...then paying the rent...*sigh* furnishing...wololo, i'm sure with time i'll manage...seeing as am not in a hurry to move out of my folks nest.]

haha it’s kinda amazing the look on my folks face when they realize am actually growing up, but to them they are stuck on how am still a baby…you’ve gotta love them.

Theme Song of the Week

Ummmm!! I’m in this lovely mood and I’m seriously missing my baby sister (Clara I miss you, can you close school fast!)

So in that case, I’m in a ROCK mood… And Paramore – Riot  gets the *Kawi Cup*!

I’m Craving

I haven’t eaten chicken since I vowed not to for a month or two. The reason is my beloved friends started telling me how chicken is injected with hormones and that they could be detrimental in future…who wants to hear that , I wanna have normal brilliant kids in future so bye bye hormonal chicken.

But now I’m going to Luhya Land … home of Normal aka Kienyeji Chicken :)))))  I’m soooo excited. I’ll eat ALOT of kieyenji chicken while I can, as much as my small tummy can handle.

I want and I wish

That what I’m praying for and wishing for comes to be. Amen to that!

I pray

For all my family, friends and loved ones to be blessed abundantly (by God).

The Inner You *Good and Evil*

Disclaimer: this is a thought based on observation, not experience hence don’t start categorizing yourself with me in thought…lol #justincase

Ok, don’t listen to your inner devil…it depends on what it’s telling you though because the good side can be the full sissy sometimes. Yeah, apparently we all have the good and evil side — and I used to wonder why we had Ethics classes in campus, now I kinda understand, still in denial though. I have always thought we can all use common sense.

So I found me asking myself *yeah I do that all the time* some questions after reading a number of articles both on the dailies and the Internet.

Do you think some people rejoice in the downfall of others…or again do you think that people rejoice in the success of others?

Do you think people are quick to respond when you have sad news or do you think people are quick to respond when you have great happy news?

Do you think people will run the opposite direction from you when you have problems or yet again do you think that people will come running towards you to help you resolve a problem?

Do you think people will talk behind your back when there are rumours or gossips being spread, or do you think that people will come and warn you about a rumor that’s on going?

Now that people have both the evil and good side…I bet sometimes one overcomes the other given certain circumstances. So most of the time you won’t get people treating you the same. There will be good people and bad people. It depends on what the inner devil or inner angel tells them and which advice they decide to choose.

Note that : That the inner devil and inner angel is all you , and if you atually see them you are hallucinating. So when the inner devil speaks…that’s your evil side – the one that takes you to hell….lol, and when the inner angel speaks…that’s your good side that – the direct way to heaven.

Anyway sometimes I actually get confused as to whether there’s actually a heaven and a hell…and if one has to be a goody two shoes – only listen to your inner angel, to get God’s favor to enter heaven when you die. What’s the criteria..yeah it’s all in the bible but it’s hard to decipher as sometimes you can be doing good thinking it’s good but at the same time someone else is suffering from your good deed or better yet thinking your good deed is evil does that make any sense?

Do you ever wonder why is when you follow and obey the ten commandments and do all the right things you still end up suffering, I mean you don’t have it that easy here on earth. While another the person doing all the evil things #corruption #syndicates #conspiracy’s and so on is busy enjoying all the goodies and luxuries that life has to offer?

I would like to give life examples, I’m actually over-flooded by many but it could bring controversy’s as in the actual sense, I’m not sure of who is actually good or not…if you know what I mean. I’m not in anyones thoughts, so I can’t really judge and say that this one was doing good or bad.

Thinking of which that’s probably why it’s said, “Only God can judge” … not unless now you do some outwardly bad thing that I can see and actually judge like if you are corrupt or if you steal or kill…those are tangible…but thoughts aren’t (they’re intangible), therefore one can’t say this good person has good/evil thoughts…since we can’t see them.

Anyhow that’s my collection of lunchtime thoughts. In short, we just need to develop thick skin. Word on the street is that not everyone will like/love you..I mean Jesus wasn’t loved by everyone too..so what’s makes you any different.

Last word, for those who love you, appreciate them, be there for them and preferably love them back. For those who don’t love you…don’t fret! embrace it, keep them on your guard and move on with life, if anything don’t bother much with them as they say:

“Remember, always give your best. Never get discouraged. Never be petty. Always remember, others may hate you. But those who hate you don’t win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself.”

HAHA did you know this so stimulating?

Thee Fear Factor

This is actually from a “post” that I had done earlier but was in form of a page…but then I think it now deserves to be an actual post.

Ever been asked something like “What’s your worst fear?

Well, I have always thought of that question as “What is it that gives you the creeps, like that cold shiver running down your spine”?

It’s until now I realize what the question does not only mean, the above, but it also means “What is it that holds you back, that keeps you from exploring your potentials?” besides giving you the creeps too.

Heres a well-known acronym for fear:

F.E.A.R = False evidence appearing real ~~ Who thinks up this things?

I read somewhere the meaning of the above acronym. It means that, “even though what we’re fearful of seems very real to us, it’s usually something we’ve made up in our heads, as opposed to something we’re facing in physical form. Studies on the stress hormone cortisol (yeah that’s a word..who knew?) show that our bodies react to our thoughts regardless of what is actually in front of us.”

Hence the reason people say, that it is all in your head. Whatever it is that holds you back is all in your head…yep! Some here’s my list of things that hold me back in order of descending order:

Fear of Loss : This for me is fear of death, I wouldn’t want to imagine anyone close to me or anyone that I love dead. I actually think of them as immortal. How one overcomes that fear I don’t know.

Fear of Failure : I really hate failing (who doesn’t anyway??),  thing is if I fail I usually feel bad, like ‘you good for nothing’..ok am joking, but honestly, I do feel bad, especially if its something you’ve work hard on…then again, sometimes one has to fail to be able to learn lessons and all those important things in life or so that one can put more effort in a smart way… Life, I tell you!

Fear of Abandonment/rejection/being stranded/spontaneity : Now this one holds me back a lot, especially from trying out new or risky stuff. I like familiarity or routine. I can actually say am not that much of a risk taker…which is a very bad thing. Life is short, if anything one should be spontaneous not rigid. So that’s supposed to change soon.

My fear of Crawling animals or anything that walks in four. Haha, this is hilarious and I shall blame it on my nanny when I was a toddler because she used animals to scare me so that I can eat… oh yeah, apparently I was a very poor eater (unbelievable but yeah!) …  And for sure she instilled that fear in me.

Then I read this quote somewhere, “Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love” – Ranier Maria Rilke ~~~~~ LOL, like really? That means that when a caterpillar crawls up on you it’s just looking for acceptance, love…Never Ever. That goes for dogs and cats too…Catch me dead getting cuddly with either, I avoid them like plaque you’d think they are poisonous. Honestly, they freak the living hell-out-of me.

There some fears I hear of but I haven’t really experienced them, or I have partially, just that it doesn’t affect me much.

  • Fear of heartbreaks : I’m pretty sure there’s a fear like that, I know of some people who are so closed up to anything involving love, opposite sex, relationships bleh bleh bleh. I can bet there’s even some scientist who has come up witha name for that.
  • Fear of closed space : Claustrophobia, I have never understood this fear, I had never experienced it until recently when I was in a matatu, sitted on the middle lane, hence far from the windows, it was raining outside and all the windows were closed. The heat in the vehicle was unbearable and considering I had eaten a lot, I was feeling like I’m either going to puke or scream – one feels like they can’t breath.
  • Fear of water: Aquaphobia, I love swimming, the sea,the ocean, a tab full o water, the shower…so clearly me and water were meant to be.
  • Fear of darkness: Haha, this one always makes me laugh at myself, because it makes me imagine things like someone is following me and so on. Especially after a horror movie…wololo!

  • Fear of homosexuals: Homophobia …. oh well, I advocate for homosexuality or lesbianism, but I don’t fear them. I could comfortably live with them provided some girl doesn’t hit on me..eeeeewww!
  • Fear of injections: when I was younger I was so afraid of injections that I would be beaten before I settle down to be injected..thank God my mum is persevering and patient, because when I got sick I was a pain in the a**, same ol’ ame ol’
  • Fear of heights: I think I can manage heights..well, I get the creeps but I can tolerate, I get over it quickly. I can be daring at times *yeah right* I can never do Banju Jumping or Sky diving… I would get a heart attack…lol

Now whoever came up with that  Fear Factor reality show…When I used to watch it, I used to get disgusted and/or scared on behalf of the contestants, they used to eat and do things out of this world. But heeey, I bet the main aim behind it is that, FEAR is one of those things that you shouldn’t let rule your life, you should always be ahead of the game. \nn/

Uncomfortable Moments *Relief*

Ever experienced a very uncomfortable/painful moment that left you wondering what normal actually feels like. I thought of this on sunday when I was in church…lol okay …ps: I was listening attentively but my mind wandered just a bit. Sometimes it’s just hard to have the full concentration for a whole 2 to 3 hrs. I bet it’s just human for the mind to veer off just a lil’bit. Then I had a conversation about it later on, and pap!! post!

Then after the uncomfy or painful moment is gone…one  feels a relief that is unfathomable. One can’t just explain how good it feels. Just to explain what I mean, here are some things that I’ve gone through and I bet 3/4 of others have too.

Shoes that are too tight/pressing/not fitting well

Ever worn new shoes that are either too tight that your toes are curling in words in order to fit,  or that are making you hurt at the back of your foot to an extent one can develop a blister. And as you walk you don’t remember how wearing a normal fitting shoe feels like. Every steps one takes makes you want to tear…sometimes you basically find yourself tip-toeing or limping. You even start looking at other people wondering whether they are experiencing the same and if not how good they must be feeling.

Now what’s the effect when you remove the shoe? RELIEF that’s on another level. You feel like you have never even worn shoes…lol and the pain just goes away, and you cannot even remember how painfully bad it felt.

A particle/eye lash/insect in the eye

This is what made me even think of this whole thing. Ever had an eyelash enter your eye. Damn than tiny piece of hair can make you feel like gorging out your eye. It’s so uncomfortable, one has too keep rubbing the eye or literally put finger in eye *disgusting* to remove the foreign body.

Your eyes can sometimes even react to the foreign body and becomes red and swollen…the look that says you’ve been smoking something illegal.

The aftermath: RELIEF that’s unbelievable, you even want to just make sure that for-sure nothing is in the eye. And all over sudden one forgets how it felt having the foreign body in your eye.

Too pressed by pee

haha ever been too pressed by pee? If you haven’t you are special and quite lucky. Because that’s not the best feeling in the world…you feel like the pipes in your body are gonna burst open. And you find yourself doing all the weirdest things such as crossing legs, bending over, jumping up and down, shaking. And trust me all those movements do help. *been there done that*

The worst is when you are about to reach the loo and the pressed-ness has reached climax…LOL #notfresh

After using the loo — there’s some level of RELIEF that cannot be described. One feels like letting out a loud *PHEW!!SIGH* actually most of  us do…just to indicate how much the relief felt.

A stomach ache/Cramps

Now this can drive you nuts…nothing beats a running stomach…waaattt! To be honest I cannot remember how it feels because it’s really bad…like MJ baaad!You feel like someone is squeezing your intestines to make some intestinal juice…yuck! At that moment you cannot recall how having a normal stomach feels like…the pain and discomfort is unbearable you can barely stand straight.

RELIEF is when the stomach feels better..no blending/squashing/cramping feeling. Everything is intact and normal…especially the fact that you can now stand straight. And you totally forget how an aching stomach feels like. <true/false?>

A tooth ache

Ever had a tooth-ache/sensitive teeth…to be sincere I’ve never had one..so lucky me. *Touch-Wood* but I’ve had the feeling of air passing through my teeth. How that happens I’ve got no idea. but that’s the main reason I don’t like dental floss…the few times I’ve used it, it’s made me have that airy feeling between my teeth.

It makes you forget how normal teeth feel without the air passing through/aching gum and teeth  #truestory I bet you can relate.

It’s a RELIEF when the airy feeling disappears…or when the tooth ache finally calms. Sometimes I tend to wonder how that happens. It’s an all of a sudden thing. You don’t even realize it as it goes…all of a sudden you just feel normal.

A throbbing headache

Like that action (medicine) advert, it feels like there’s someone hitting your head with a hammer over and over … when it’s in excess people call it migraines – makes you want to pull your hair off…like literally. Remember when I was in high school #form1 I had a half Indian room-mate who had one of this, and it could make her do crazy things.

But once it goes, the RELIEF is overwhelming, you wouldn’t even know the headache ever existed…one even start to imagine how the pain feels. (or I’m the only one who does that..haha)

Those are just but a few, it amazes me how quick one can forget the pain they were going through and as much as you remember the cause and how it made you feel, you can’t really remember the actual feeling unless it occurs again, then you can say “this is it”…but still explaining it to someone else can be such a task.

Still wondering if Heartaches also fall under this category?

It’s just amazing!

Friday *Musings*

Thank God It’s Friday, though I feel like I’ve had two Fridays this week. That’s Tuesday and Today. You’ve gotta love Kenya … when there’s a holiday like “Mashujaa Day” , though I have issues why they had to scrape off our traditional culture of  Moi Day and Kenyatta Day… for fairness sake they should have added Kibaki Day :) on say Oct 25th, then a Mashujaa Day on 29th that’s me wishing.

I’m thinking I would love to get such a painting for my room or house …lol #ambition minus the TGIF that is. I love how they’ve mixed all my  favorite colours in one setting and it looks amazingly hot. Now only to put that in clothing. Am sure one day I’ll get a dress with them colours mixed up…and NO not in “tie and die”.

In case, you didn’t get it, my favorite colors are : Purple, Green,. Yellow, Red, Brown ~ in that descending order..maybe respectively would be more like it..hehe

Today, oh well!

That was me right there in the morning! Only difference is that the picture is from Google Images, she’s blonde and my room is tad bit more organized #ithink . In case you are wondering i’m not leaving anything to imagination, I finally got clothes to wear…(after going through the long procedure of , select – wear – doesn’t look/feel good  – Remove – try on something else – ask mom how it looks – nice/funny – remove – then I finally settled on something). And that’s not because that’s what I really wanted to wear. It’s because I was running late and uuuum “I love my job”.

The traffic on our roads, is disheartening *is there a word like that?*, Wake up early, leave the house early … but it totally makes no difference. It’s like the universe trying to show you “Who Runs This Town” *Mocking Bird Style*. I even stopped looking at city clocks, cell clock … my wrist watch … I discovered they are the source of all my stress and frustration in the morning.

I’m feeling, Indescribable – that’s a feeling in my apparent dictionary! At least I’m not complaining. Though I’m lazy to do the whole TGIF process, getting the pics and all. Plus today I don’t know what I want, basically I’m jumbling everything up. Doing one thing, leaving it, moving to the next, leaving it…so basically I have a couple of things half-way done today and a better part of the week.

*YIKES* I searched my three names on Google … and there’s me everywhere *Don’t do what you are just about to do…lol, am sure you’re probably on Google Search right now..humans!*. I shall not ask how that’s even possible…because clearly it’s all there #mybad. Now I’m on “How I’m I removing my name from all those places?”. Putting up stringent measures *read restrictions* where necessary. But then again, that’s probably impossible, maybe I should just embrace it. *Confused* That’s just me. Why care anyway, it’s never that serious or so I think, I sooo care.

Yesternight I landed on a series called “Lipstick Jungle”, where was it all this time? Just what I needed to watch. It’s actually a nice series for anyone who likes chic flicks!

Okay before I bore you, with my so called musings…lol, let me Sign Off .

but not that fast…” QUOTE OF THE WEEKEND

I’ma do exactly that *wink* . SUPER LOVELY WEEKEND MATES!

Favorite Actresses *Starring —–*

So after our holidays in October were scrapped off — yeah, originally we had two lovely holidays in the month of October (why would they scrape that off?, Man is entitled to holidays, ain’t it?) one on the 10th (Moi day) and the other 20th(Kenyatta Day), so 10th was scrapped I insist , and 20th was converted to Mashujaa day where we celebrate the lives of the people who fought for our independence (why didn’t they place a day like 30th October for that, it would’ve be more appreciative…lol)

In essence, this kind of holidays are spent indoors, save for those who go to the same park to witness the same event only with a different name … that is, it’s the same on Madaraka day, Labour day, Promulgation day, Jamuhuri day…it’s the same EVERYTHING…only the political speeches change to suit the day and climate *read political climate*. I even stopped watching it on T.V.

So this holiday fell on a Wednesday *YAAAY*, which makes the week shorter by a day…yeah that’s quite a big deal in a working nation. And it’s in one of my thoughtful instances, I got myself wondering who are my most favorite (preferably 3) actresses. You the know the ones who if I am going to buy a DVD or watch a film and they are starring I would automatically without a second thought, either buy it or go watch it respectively.

So here goes the short list :

Disclaimer :- The reviews supporting the movies “for those who haven’t watched them” are from Wikipedia, yes, I don’t know how to review a movie so I didn’t waste time trying to…lol, the ones I’ve listed are the ones I really enjoyed.

1. JULIA ROBERTS

However, Victor is very enthusiastic about, and busy with, finding the best wines and cheeses for his restaurant and, to Sophie’s disappointment, hardly has time for her. ——-> (Watch it, it’s like a Cindarella Story *happily ever after* but it’s fun to watch.)

Hilary Burton – aka Peyton Sawyer on One Tree Hill (she was my favorite), she’s also featured in “White Collar series – Season 2″

To be honest, I don’t really know the lives of all this actresses outside acting. I neither follow up on their personal lives nor have any particular interest in finding out or researching, unless it’s obviously plastered everywhere on showbiz news/tabloids *macho hayana pazia, meaning, eyes have no curtains literally*. It’s how they act and the roles they are given that get the better part of me.

Their characters in the movies, especially my favorites, to some extent influence me in one way or another … but the most amazing thing about them is that how they exude bubbly-ness, how they are full of life and how they adapt to their roles – It’s all just super amazing.

When I’m sad and I watch either of their movies…it’s an automatic jump-start to a whole new happy bubbly me. Yeah, small things make me happy. They define the kind of movies I would watch because they are all about the same theme ~~ romance, comedy, drama ~~ I’m quite the chiq.

I like movies, that make me go awwwwww, or make me chuckle or laugh to rib aches or if worst come to worst makes me have balancing tears, because I’m feeling sorry for the actor/actress. This is because sometimes I tend to put myself in the place of the actress. So if a movie doesn’t make me feel that way, chances are that I’ve not enjoyed it any bit.

Well, that’s just me in a nutshell.

Rub Off’s *You-nique*

You know, how the human mind works is just amazing. Today as I was walking to the office, I was thinking duh, yeah I was thinking….and in my line of thought. PS: Thought in this case is where I’m having a conversation in my head with myself…yeah one talks and another responds.

And in the midst of all that, I figured a part of me is speaking the way a close friend of mine does, some particular phrases that is. That’s because before I knew the friend(s), I never used such phrases. But once I started hanging out with them there are some phrases that they use that have also caught up with me.

I mean, I would find myself reacting to a situation closely to the way they do, though in my own way since we are all different in the end. That’s weird. Not only do the phrases rub off but some of the psychological expressions. How you shrug your shoulders, or roll your eyes, or throw your hands.

Whoever came up with the proverbial saying of  “Bird’s of a feather flock together”, had probably realized this earlier than we did.

Like seriously, it happened subconsciously, and it’s after I thought out the statement, I was like, uuuummmm wait a second, WOW, that was not me right there, it does sound like someone I know. I could even picture the person saying it.

After realizing, and having a thought or two about it. It’s not everyone that rubs onto me. Human’s are choosy beings, or at-least I am…very choose to be precise. Disclaimer, before some people hate me, I’m humble too…lol

So the only way a person would rub off on me, is under the circumstances like this:

I really like the person

I find them soooooo cool

They are creative, and their style is the ish

They are unique…not just kawaida i.e like every other Tom, Dick-inson*to sound civil…lol* and Harry…. ( Question : Why do they say Tom, Dick and Harry and not some female names? )

I hang out with them very often

Their phrases and expressions totally amaze me, so I just find myself getting on with the programme…hehe

The above are a result of me first liking the person

Yeah basically, not just anything or anyone rubs off on me, as I said I am very choosy… so whatever it is that’s rubbing off, has to have totally impressed yours truly, and/or also be approved, as a habit/phrase/expression to be taken up. I think I subconsciously try it and if it looks good on me too…I join the band wagon, if not…dropped.

Maybe that’s why I never try so hard when it comes to sheng’ phrases, I just sound bad.

Am I the only one who finds people who I tend to think that they ( kind of, sort of ) think like me. Like they would do something or say something and I’m like I would have sooo done the same given a similar circumstance. Or you observe how someone carry’s out themselves and you just know that  either you will or will not get along with that person.

Although in the long run, one has to know themselves so that they are not swallowed by their influencers, to an extent you become fake or a photocopy of them. You also need to make sure YOU sticks (still remain as YOU-NIQUE) so that someone else can have that blessed opportunity of taking up some of your phrases/ expressions/habits.

BEHIND THE MASK *Internet Life ≠ Real Life*

I made this observation not so long time ago. There’s the real life, then there is the internet life. Maybe I should do a brief definition of what I actually mean by those two types of life to be exact. So that at least we can be on the same page.

Real Life – Who you really are, when socializing with real people who you can see, that you have probably met and know how they are.

Internet Life – Who you are when behind your computer typing away on the keyboard, when typing the key pad of your phone, when no one else can see you, when no one knows who you are, when you act out the kind of person you would want to be in the real life but can’t be – The person behind the Mask.

The reason I even decided to write about this is because… actually let me first ask two questions?

  1. Have you ever met someone who is your internet friend? You chat with them, you have seen their pictures and all. And you decide to do a meet up?
  2. What was the result of the meet up?
  • Were you excited and happy?
  • Were you surprised and perplexed?
  • Did you feel like you were short-changed because the person you met ≠ to the person you were socializing with?

I wish we were doing a form of discussion, then I would get to hear people stories…Most of the ones I’ve heard are SUPER HILARIOUS. The thing with the Internet Life is that you can go the extreme, you can google, put up pictures that totally bring out who you are not, you can just not be you. But in real life you don’t have a choice…you’ve just got to be you

(There’s room for pretence in real life, but there are some you just can’t..If you are shy, you are shy…unless you’re high on something, if you’re short/tall, then you are…unless you take the shrinking pills like in cartoons, if you are black/white, you are that).

I shall not deny, I love Social Networks…like really, the “people” and people in there, can really make your day interesting…They are all out of this world. Majority of them are cool, interesting, funny, hilarious, intelligent… have perfect responses to difficult/confusing situations. Chances of getting stuck intellectually when you are on a social network are slim.

The is a reason they are called Social Networks, they HELP in socializing…that’s just one aspect of your life. The social aspect of it. There are many other things in life and the mistake we do is look for them in the Social Networks. And that’s where I would say that Internet Life ≠ Real Life

People go look for Life in the Internet … Acceptance, Security, Purpose, Fulfillment, Happiness, Love, Solace … Well just to burst your bubble, that’s the wrong place because for sure you will find all that…and an extra bag of chips to top it up. The Internet never lacks anything. It’s a synonym for China. I have never gone to China, but I hear “ask and you shall be given – bootleg, comes in high , average and low quality”

Basically, Internet Life is a fake. As long as you’re transmitting anything over the Internet there’s always an exaggerated version of you *Believe it or not*. The only time Internet Life = Real Life is when there is a Meet Up. When you see the real person behind that computer or the person behind the mask.

The pictures, the information on internet can all be altered. The pictures could be photoshoped…the picture can make one perceive you as tall while you are short, information you give can make one think you are super outgoing while on the other hand you are shy and introvert… You get my point I know.

Meetup’s as much as they don’t tell you the whole truth, at least reveal a small part of the real person. It eliminates the thought of you being a bot (robot) or a fake. I always get surprised at how different a person can be on the internet from the real life and that’s the reason why I came up with this post.

Today’s Advice:

Keep Internet Life and Real Life Separate, in case you have to mix them  up, meet-up with the Real People. And don’t look for Life in the internet because it’s Life-Less!

CHEERS MATES!

The Fall of Man *Who’s to blame?*

So after the creation story, man was living thee life. You know, just chilling the works no hustles of life, food and drinks were available, there was no need for money, competition…basically it was just for chilling and walking around the VERY beautiful garden of Eden accompanied by a VERY beautiful woman called Eve… I mean what more would one ask for?

So in my quest to understand what really happened in the Garden of Eden. Yeah sometimes you need to trace back the origin of this things. Adam and Eve being the first couple ever, historically that is, and according to the oldest life guide-book which is the bible.

Just how did the “Fall Of Man” happen? Derived from Genesis 3:1-24 and some referrals from chapter 2 as well.

This is how it all started, the Devil/Satan aka Serpent targets Eve being crafty and all, I could even say he took the place of a con-man in today’s world. PS : They always target women. Eve ingests the questions and responds politely just as she had been told by Adam because if you read Chapter 2, it’s Adam who was given the commandment.

1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”

2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’ “

Note that in Chapter 2:16-17, while Adam was telling Eve the rules of the Garden, this is what God had commanded him, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die” ~~~ Well, Eve had added spice to the commandment and said that you must not touch it too…lol, clearly now you can get where we all get this from. And so the con man Serpent went on, convincing the woman that she won’t die, I mean that’s just a gimmick so that you don’t be like God.

4 “You will not surely die,” the serpent said to the woman.  5 “For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

A woman is emotional, as I would always say, and will do what they think is good or will make them be in a better position. Hence the reason they are always the ones who fall into the traps. And that’s what exactly happens next.

6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.

Haha this is the funny part, Adam was the one who was given the commandment. Eve heard it from him *third-party*, so if anything Adam should have intervened, and said with Confidence what he was told by God. And told Eve NO! You cannot eat this. But instead watched from a distance as the Devil lured Eve, and he did completely nothing. And after she was convinced, she even shared some of that juicy i believe it was apple with him.

7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.  8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden.

9 But the LORD God called to the man, “Where are you?” He answered, 10 “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.” 11 And he said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?”

Now who said the statement that, “the man is always Right”…hehe Wrong! And this is the point at which the blame game starts. Clearly, Adam was good at it, he completely detached himself and this is what he had to say,

12 The man said, “The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.” 13 Then the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

Note that: The woman, Eve, did not blame Adam but instead the canning crafty liar, the Serpent. Putting in mind she didn’t force Adam to eat the fruit in the first place, she was sharing out of the goodness of her heart. And Adam who ate it, without questioning goes ahead an puts it all on the woman, while he could do something about it i.e Tell off the Serpent, but he did nothing, though was quick  to point fingers.

14 So the LORD God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, “Cursed are you above all the livestock and all the wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life. 15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”

Now on to the major punishments, the reason we humans have to endure so much pain, work our asses off and have all this problems – put a name to it – this is the reason:

To the Woman

16 To the woman he said, “I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.”

To the Man

17 To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat of it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life. 18  It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. 19 By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.”

20 Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living. 21  The LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them.

Yeah and that’s why we suffer the way we do. *Sigh*. Can you imagine there was also the tree of life, in that like you can eat of it and live forever…how cool, that means no one will ever lose their loved ones. But Adam and Eve ate the one for knowing good and evil…who needed to know good and evil then, life would’ve been much easier if we didn’t know. Like they say, “What you don’t know does no harm to you”. But bygones are bygones, now to live with that.

22 And the LORD God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.”

And that’s how we landed on earth…from the beautiful Garden of Eden.

23 So the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. 24 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.
