READING CULTURE; CULTIVATE This In Your L.O

I read. I love reading because sometimes it is my only window to the hope of building big dreams . I wonder how some of my friends hate to read, that its boring and a waste of time. Like, how do you make sense of life?? I ask. That is just me and my reading culture.

Where did it all begin? When I was younger my mom bought me books as presents, books as toys and books when she felt happy; even for herself. Not that I did not have dolls and other toys that girls did, because I had a collection of dolls and I was their salonist and therapist. However, books were very present in my space.

So, from earlier on in my life, I was reading. At first it was ginger bread man and Cinderella, then a bit more wordy books and when I was 12 years old I got the power of a praying kid, Nancy Drew and other small sized novels which I would finish within a day or two. I loved how while reading I did not have to be at home alone, bored but I could go to other peoples houses, towns and countries and enjoy it while it lasted.

The point where I started reading inspiration books just sort of happened and I began to want to do what I had dreamed after all those years of reading and building castles.

I got a baby when I was a teenager, not related to books and reading at all but now I would also like my son to be a reader. Why? It soothes the soul and also gives you reason to be and a guide on how. When you are young it molds your intelligence and gives you a better perspective on having big dreams and wanting to achieve them.

Reading is also an attractive trait and a good way to keep busy.

I am a reader and I’d like my baby to be a reader. What about you??

HAPPILY EVER AFTER; WHAT HAPPENS AFTER WE ACCEPT OUR DIVERSITY

It is cool to be different; it is even more cooler when people accept it. SO we preach diversity and the acceptance of it but what benefits do we stand to reap?

accepting diversity blogpost

First and foremost, you live peacefully. You understand your neighbour and conflict is close to non-existent.

You have fun. Not only do you have different cultured people and is learning everyday but you get to experiment new behaviours, foods and visit new places.

You are open minded and have no issue accepting difference in opinion and know how to handle it well. This means you possess good interpersonal skills.

Lastly you are not biased to one way of acting and living, you have acquired different behaviours that you feel work best for you as an individual and therefore are enriched psychologically and emotionally.

Therefore do embrace diversity and learn a new thing or two about the culture next door.

And ooooh be positive in embracing diversity. Focus on the positive.

That’s it from us,

ACCEPTING OUR DIFFERENCES; WE ARE ALL UNIQUE

Am African, you’re European; am female you’re male; am short, you’re tall; Am fat you’re slim; I talk too much and you like your silence. WE are different and that’s what makes this world so damn interesting. Imagine if we only had Africans,or if we only had women on this planet… Can you imagine the boredom?

I can. It would be predictably and painlessly boring.

When you realize the differences among humanity, instead of wanting everyone to hold the same beliefs, values and practices as you; celebrate the differences.

Listen to different points of view, learn new ways of cooking your sweet potatoes, hum to different foreign drum beats, experiment the foods.

I mean you got to love the diversity. 101 ways to make potatoes. 202 ways to dress. 303 dancing moves. 404 speaking tongues. 505 cultural destinations to choose from. Personally, am open to learn what can work for me and adapt them as I please. Isn’t it a free world?

Look at your neighbour and embrace all their diverse personality traits, cultures and practices; it is an open book of learning and entering their frame of reference. Conflict may arise due to the differences but remember no frame of reference is superior to the other and co-existing is key.

Accept the differences, reach a compromise and learn to love one another as being from different origins and backgrounds but having the same vision of prosperity, peace and joy.
