The greatest gift you can give someone is the gift of the interested listener.
Listening is one of the soft skills that may not be taught but developed over time. Otherwise, we may become poor listeners. Listening is a great skill to learn and
Here a few items to note while listening, really listen to one another:
- Listening to people brings out your love and concern for them.
- Giving one your time, you give them a portion your life.
- A listening eye is an act of kindness. Make kindness your lifestyle and not a time show.
Friendship isn’t a big thing, it’s a million little things such as listening.
Learn to be an amazing listener.
I know it has been a while since we had this amazing column. Good news it that its back.
We all have goals in our lives. Knowing exactly where you want to be and what to get there is half of it. The difference is not that we are wired differently. But what are you doing to achieve your goal?
Lastly, I will end the post with a quote:
“Having an aim is the key to achieving your best.” – Henry J. Kaiser
Fly away to your achieve your goals.
Father’s day is a day dedicated to honoring and celebrating fatherhood. The day is dated from way back in the 1980s and since then it’s commemorated by over 40 countries. Father’s day os held on the 3rd Sunday of June in most countries. This day also complements the Mother’s day.

Hello Everyone, another month is here! Every new month is a new chance to be happy, make memories and draw up new plans.
April is here! This is a vital celebration month such as December is with Christmas.
What is in for us this month?
With schools closed, this is the time of the year, we get to celebrate Easter. This is not restricted by religion or faith, but everyone gets to do something out of the norm. The Easter holiday is an important season, especially for Christians. They commemorate the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The celebration begins on Good Friday and ends on Easter Monday. The celebrations normally include church attendance.
The season is also celebrated with a symbol of eggs ‘Easter eggs’. The Easter eggs are said to symbolize the empty tomb that was left behind when Jesus rose from the dead. This Easter egg symbol has been attributed to other pagan practices.
For the others, they opt to go out of their way and help the vulnerable or less fortunate in the society. This may be part of the organization you work or school you go to or a group of friend(s) initiative.
Others go out for Easter related events such as Easter egg hunts. These events such as Easter egg hunt or Easter painting enable people to reconnect and have fun.
In addition to Easter eggs, Easter bunnies are also part of the Easter celebrations. These are exciting especially for kids. At times it involves children baking goods -like cookies and other pastries shaped like bunnies.
May your last months’ failures be your successes this month.
Anything that anyone can do, I can do it too.
Nothing in this world is impossible. You are beyond the impossible. What has been done earlier, can be done better. There is always room for improvement. Look at the evolution of the electric bulb and other innovations done in the 19th century and even the 18th century. People have improved on them and change the world. That which has not been done is waiting to be done or discover by someone else. Why not do it yourself? Take the leap of faith and do it.
What is hindering you from your success is you. Every is an opportunity but what makes the difference is what you get or make of it.
Reach out and Grasp the opportunity.
Follow your passion. The sky is the limit. The only limitation you have to your dreams is yourself.
There is nothing wrong with following one’s passion. Everyone needs a passion. But we live in a world constantly in flux with circumstances we often cannot control. It is when people conflate passion with purpose that they end up in a situation like my friend. We should live each day with a purpose – doing the best job possible within our human power. A person who lives with a purpose does not live in a fantasy world. They have aspirations, but they take concrete steps each day to realose tehir pasion.That is really living a life with a purpose. i would like to sign off with aquote;
