What meant to be

What meant to be

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it’s yours. If it does not come back, it was never meant to be! I have been thinking about the things are happening in my daily life and feeling the positive thoughts that things meant to be that way for me to learn and help my friends too. Life is not a game, but together we can make life better. What do you think my dear friends?

Every human being in this world is unique, because we are God’s sons and daughters.  Sometimes we feel miserable about life, which is true to feel that way, but never lose hope in any kind of situation because together we can make the world a better place.

Simple, you do not need to have a big brain in order to love!

My dear readers please; lets share our positive thoughts to support the world.

Help the world to be a better place

My friend asked me a question. What should we do to support humanity?

My friend knew that this is something I think about often, because I understand that the problems of this world are big, and many. I feel people’s suffering, and I want to do what I can to help. I can only do a little, but if every person did what they can, it could add up to something big.

I gave my friend the best answer I have thought of so far, which is that everyone should love people in the area where he or she lives. I hope that each person who loves and takes care of the people around them will also inspire others to do the same. In this way, love will naturally spread from person to person.

I feel this can make a big difference and help make the world to be a better place.

What do you think my dear reader?

Listening People’s Problems

When I was in Uganda (Africa) recently I learned something important from the students I met with. I was holding meetings often with students in different places and most of them were interested to share their problems with me. It was hard to solve their problems, but I decided to listen to them and let them express their feelings without me giving them my ideas.

Yes, I felt their problems so deeply, but I felt that needed to listen to them when they were sharing with me their problems instead of giving them my solutions. Later on, I asked them why don’t you share your problems with your parents or guardians? Most of them had the same answer by saying that our parents are always giving us solutions without listening to us express our feelings. That means some of the students don’t get enough attention to share more deeply their problems with the parents or guardians because of parents giving them quick solutions.

I used to do the same, but since then I learned to help them in the form of listening to people instead of coming up with my solutions. Often, after I listened to them they later came back and told me they were able to solve their problem.

I felt as if I did nothing to support them, but the students were appreciating me for listening to them.

Most of them said that it was a new experience for them being listened to. So I got to know that sometimes people want our attentions more than solutions. What do you think?

Cooperation

If all people in this world can learn how to share things with others, I’m sure the world will be a better place.

The world is becoming harder and harder each day, but cooperation can help people to stay together and have less worries.

I have been in touch with the jewelry makers in Kosovo Community in Uganda (mentioned in my last blog) and talking with them about how to cooperate by sharing things with each other and doing things together, and they have already started cooperating with each other.

For example, if they need to buy things from the market, all of them do not go to the market. Just they send one person to go and purchase things for all of them. That helps them to minimize the cost of transportation. Otherwise everyone will be paying for transport to go to the market for shopping. I’m so happy because they are putting my advice into action, and it is helping them.

Everyone can promote cooperation wherever he or she lives so that we can help the world. When people cooperate and share what they have, it helps them to spend less and still live well. And it helps them be happy with each others.

Cooperation is love in action, but without cooperation, people can become afraid and greedy when times are hard. For example, when people receive funds to help orphans, they use those funds in a different way! By building their own beautiful house or buying an expensive car. They are doing that, because of lack of cooperation.

This is a very big project and I know we can help many people, because life is going to be very hard in the future. Cooperation is a way of preparing for the future, because you can see where the world is heading now days!

We all need to work together for a better world. If you have any experiences about cooperation or ideas how to promote cooperation, I’d like to hear them.

Story about Doubt

I had a conversation with one of the students in Uganda about doubting, and I realized many people will be interested to hear about this challenge.

I asked her if she has a boyfriend? She said, “Wilson you’re funny! This is not the time for boys to mess with my life.” I knew that this student had her heart broken by a boy before, and I saw that she is afraid in her heart to try again. So I said to her that I want to talk to her a little more about boys. This is what I explained to her, maybe it will help others too.

Sometimes a person doesn’t want to have a boyfriend or girlfriend because of many reasons. One of the reasons is to avoid getting heartbroken. For example, a girl had a relationship with John and it didn’t work. Then later she had another one with Deo and it doesn’t work either. So she felt heartbroken by those two relationships, and you know how much it hurts. She wants to avoid being hurt again. This is common problem in relationships.

When people want to avoid being hurt, sometimes they end up saying that all men are the same, or all men are irresponsible, which is not true. They say that to cool their interest in boys. And they end up creating doubt in their hearts and fearing to be in a relationship anymore! Just they keep doubting and being afraid to love. Yet some men and women are faithful and responsible for their lovers. It is not right to blame them for the irresponsibility of the others.

Doubt and fear are dangerous. They hurt, too. For example, if you tell someone, “I love you,” the person who has doubt in his or her mind will answer you, “REALLY???” Instead of saying, “I love you too.”

When you put honey in your tea, you can’t take it back. It becomes part of your tea. Like that, when you doubt, it spreads in your mind and heart and becomes part of the way you think, until you are a doubtful person. But then you will have a sad life, because you will be afraid to live, and afraid to love.

Some people are ready to have a good relationship and others not, but it doesn’t mean that all people are bad, or all relationships will hurt. You see? So it’s good to take your time to get to know someone, don’t rush into relationship, but always keep hope and desire alive. Remember that many men are good and responsible for their lovers. And many women too. Always keep that positive spirit in your mind.
