No Coughing, Sneezing or Farting in Aircraft Cabins Please!

Quite an interesting weekend I've had.
I had to travel and I decided to use Aerocontractors, naturally, because they are the only airline in my opinion that gives a minimum of wahala.
So I boarded the outward flight, we got airborne and everything was peachy until this dude sitting behind started to cough. Now this was not just some ordinary cough, this was some TB-grade Sh*t and the guy just kept at it for the better part of 40 minutes without bothering to cover his mouth. if you ask me, I'd say he was intentionally trying to infect everyone with whatever kind of cough he had.
I couldn't ask him to stop coughing so I settled in and tried to ignore him. No way, dude increased the tempo. Haba Oga! Why such 'evils'?
I remember thinking at one point that God will most surely reprimand all the wicked people who fart in pressurized cabins or disburse exotic germs via coughing or prolonged sneezing.

Flight over, fast forward to a couple of days later...I've got a bad cough and a runny nose. Oga see what you did? Hope you're proud of your handwork.

I then got on the return flight (Aero again) and straight away I knew there was a problem. The pressure in the cabin was crazy and it just kept increasing (at least that's how it seemed to me).
At the end of the flight, I had a bad headache, my left ear hurt like hell and I couldn't hear well.

Now the weekend's over and all I've got to show for my adventure is an annoying cough and partial hearing in one ear. Way to go.

Some motivation to take you through the day

Do your best at doing what you do, and accept that the rest is as it is. Hold yourself to the highest standards, while letting go of your need to place judgments on others.

Free yourself from the burdens of anger and resentment. No amount of negativity can change what has already happened.

Tap into life’s immense abundance by gracefully and gratefully accepting what is. Give richness and meaning to that abundance by putting it to good use with focused effort and persistence.

Nothing is achieved by getting uptight about things that don’t really matter anyway. Let it all be, take it all in, and put all your focus and energy into making a positive difference going forward.

Make life good in every moment by allowing life’s goodness to be and to grow. Instead of fighting against what has already come to be, make a point of finding the value in it all, and in making that value grow.

From here, you can go anywhere. Let this moment be, and rise from it into the reality of the very best life you can envision.

The Thirst For Power - Destroying Humanity

The world is a funny place, where people and nations are moved around like chess pieces at the whims of the powerful ones among us, for their own selfish interests.
They might act like they have your best interests at heart, but sometimes what we think is a good cause might be a finely tuned and well orchestrated scam.

Greed is a cancer, and it has eaten so deep into the fabric of society that it has reduced men to the level of beasts who do not value the lives or well-being of others.
All they see are opportunities for acquisitions and power. All they feel is the need to stay in control and crush anything that crosses their paths.
They constantly play people against each other to achieve their aims, and while some of us may realize after a while that we are being used as pawns, others sadly, may never realize that fact.
And so it continues, in a vicious cycle; the battle for supremacy. 

One thing is apparent though, and that is the fact that this world needs love for the human race to survive, a lot of love. May God help us.

Back? Not sure

It's been a while since I paid any attention to this blog. As far as I was concerned, my blogging days were past.
Somehow, it seems that's one decision I haven't been able to stick to.

Once in a while I still get those increasingly rare flashes of inspiration and that urge to pour out what's going on in my mind. Problem is, where do I do that? Paper has never really been my thing, so I guess it's back to my trusty old blog.
I'll try to be consistent, but again, I can't promise much ;)
