You have 3 choices in life: Be good, get good, or give up.

Sometimes the choices we make can really define where we stand in life. Being somewhere is all we want, whether we have a great career, a great relationship or having a radiant friendship circle. To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there.” Koffi Annan.

***Be good:

When life throws a lemon at you, make a lemonade out of it. By the way, I love lemonade :). Being a perfectionist, I tend to look at perfection in many of my actions. It’s a quality that has driven me to offer the best of me in everything I do. I set up two names for my alarm clock  “Frustration” and “disappointment” , they always remind  me that the path I have chosen  is not working. If we are not  going to better our life in any domains, the least we can do is to be good or try to be good at what we have.

***Get good:

The motion of the sea is so  beautiful that I lose myself when staring at the surface waves. I found inspiration within that motion and I call it: motion of life. A stagnant point is a point where a change is valued and a immediate action plan is needed to keep that motion moving. After 4 years working for Ford, I came to the conclusion that I need to improve that motion, and one of the best way to do so, is to go back to school. It shows that I’m stirring  the motion with a spoon and soon I know a change will come and  I will float to a new shining direction. Getting good is a tough decision but also very rewarding. It’s a key to the next phase in our life and we shall use this key when we choose to make a move close to our goal.

***Give up:

Giving up is the last word in my vocabulary. Sometimes life puts you in a corner and forces you to give up. One should remember that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Nobody says the journey will be easy but it’s worth trying. Obstacles are those frighten things you see when you remove your eyes from your goals. Staying positive and keeping your smile when you feel like life is giving up on you, is the only way to face your trials and tribulations. One word of advice:If you are trying to stay good, and always looking for opportunities to get good then you will never find yourself in the land of giving up.

Here goes another flu season.

One should wonder why he  is always getting sick when summer leaves us for a vacation somewhere in the Caribbean.  After 7 years in Canada, I should know better right…Well guess what, I don’t. I just spent one week of my lifetime being the most miserable sick patient ever:((.

It started on monday, shortly after thanksgiving, here comes all the symptoms: Fever,cold, muscles aches, fatigue etc…

“Influenza” that’s how she called it…At first I thought she was speaking african lol then my girlfriend went on explaining what it is flu and how you can catch it. When you have a flu, I don’t think knowing the definition or the story about influenza is the first thing that comes to your mind. The only thoughts going through my head at the time, was when is she going to reach the best part of her story: How to cure influenza.

Someone gotta beat this flu…Who is going to wear the super hero costume??? Oh wait, I know it is me, oh for God sake I’m sick. Curiosity led me to my laptop and i google imaged “Influenza”, I found some unhappy images  that wouldn’t help in my fight.

The only eureka  image was the following, it shows a present and future solution to my fight:

Further down, I found that according to health Canada : Over the course of a normal flu season, one in 10 adults and one in three children will come down with the flu. Five days after, I regained the full tastes of my senses:)) …I won’t forget the help of Mr. Medications, queen Water, my best buddy Nap, the oracle Soup and my lovely girlfriend.

Once again men has won the battle Man VS Influenza.
