World Health Day 2013 - Focus High blood Pressure

Today, April 7, marks the World Health Day and this year's focus is to control high blood Pressure or hypertension.

It is very important to prevent developing this condition and to properly manage if you already have it.

Too many young people are developing it so it is no longer called a disease of the elderly BUT you can prevent it. Take care of your health. Don't stress. Find peace and calm in God.

Go to the WHO link below and read more on how to prevent it

How to do classy (n sexy) black n white

The black n white look is hot. I am not into trends cos frankly they don't work for everyone. I'm more of a style person cos you can look beautiful and on point if you develop your own unique style.

Take Kelly Rowland, she is not necessarily considered a trendsetter mainly cos she doesn't invent ridiculous ways to wear a leotard (lol). But she is generally always on point and looks beautiful.

Kelly Rowland is wearing a Wolford
Top, La Perla bra (times have changed, even the bra gets a mention :), Rachel Zoe
pants, YSL shoes and Lorraine
Schwartz Diamond Rings,
Check it out.

Life table talk I: Let the past go

Ok, this is a new series on this blog and it will simply attempt to cover topics we all discuss with girlfriends, boyfriends, best friends, family etc.

The premiere topic is "let the past go" I decided on this topic cos sometimes to learn something new you have got to make space, to open a new page you have got to turn the old page etc.

Do u ever remember things from the past, from time to time? We all do so nothing abnormal there, it becomes an issue when you dwell on it time AND time again. Often the reason you dwell is cos YOU think YOU could have done, said, being something different. Fine. Maybe that could have been the case. But think about it as a lesson in case you face the same experience again, then u can try out ur alternative action or sentence, but I guarantee you, you may likely not like that as well. We as humans are rarely satisfied so chances are we will always question our actions, you can never be 100% right, sure, certain cos YOU AIN'T GOD.

I have a dear friend who finds it quite hard to let go of past hurts, she remembers it word for word, line for line. In contrast I am able to let it go. The reason is every time I look back I actually feel like jumping up n down and shouting with glee because literally I dodged a bullet by facing what happened. I can't be the exception, I charge you to look back and not find a silver lining in ur experiences - not possible.

While it takes time to get over some things, it is very possible. Also don't let whatever happened affect the rest of your life, how you love, who you love, what you want to do in life. I always say (to myself, now to you :)) no one and nothing has the power to make you hate anything. Case in pt, as a medical student, I was so sure I wouldnt be able eat meat once I started anatomy n dissection of cadavers. People I tell you, I got home after that first day, tired and hungry and didn't even realize I was eating (and enjoying) grilled chicken until it was finished. C'est la vie. Life goes on. So you must as well.

Actually letting go is not throwing a party n inviting all the people involved. It is simply removing them from your way and continuing with the exciting journey that is the rest of your life.

Share your tips on moving on from past issues.

Peace. Love. "Fabulousness"
