1. Your favorite song is likely associated with an emotional event.
You and everyone else.
2. Music impacts your perspective.
This one seems kind of obvious! A study at the University of Groningen showed that music has a dramatic impact on your perception.
3. The more you spend on others, the happier you are.
According to various studies. Be sure to give plenty this holiday season!
4. Spending money on experience instead of stuff also makes you happier.
Collect memories not things, right?
5. Kids are more high strung today than the average psych ward patient in 1950.
Which is pretty scary but not surprising. About half the human population now suffers anxiety, depression, or a sort of substance abuse.
6. Certain religious practices lower stress.
“The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Mood Disorders” shows that people who engage in meditation and prayer religiously are less stressed out.
7. Money does buy happiness, but only up to $75,000 a year.
For the average American, $75k a ye…
As a parent, please get your priorities right!
My name is Mercy. I am a christian.
I got married at 25, finished my PhD at 27 and became a Professor at 40. So fast you said? Yes, everything around me work fast. It was now that I realise that it was a misplaced priority.
My ambition blindfolded me and I got it all wrong, that is why I am sharing my experience through this medium to warn and encourage our young mothers not to be careless as I was back then.
I worked very hard as a lecturer and as an administrator, always busy that it became my language to my children.
My mum was around to nurse the children for me for sometime, the moment they clock ten, I usually send them to boarding school, though my husband was not in support but I always find my way. I have no good warm relationship with my children, 2 boys and a girl.
I never knew it was a bad idea not to have time with my husband, children and the household, until 5 years ago, when guilt, loneliness and restlessness filled my he…

This is a true story about a woman from India who lived in the Middle Ages and had a pet snake, python, which she loved so much. The snake was 4 meters long and looked healthy. However, one day her unusual pet just stopped eating.
This lack of appetite in the snake continued over a few weeks. The desperate woman tried everything she could and offered anything that a snake would like to strangle and eat. Nothing worked, and finally the woman took her loving pet to the veterinarian as a last resort.
The vet listened to the woman carefully and asked, “Does your snake sleep with you at night, wrap around you closely and spread out throughout its length?” The woman was surprised and with a lot of hope she said, “Yes! Yes! It does it every day and it makes me so sad because I see something asking of me, and I cannot help it feel better.”
Then, the vet said something shocking and most unexpected. “Madam, your pet is not sick; it is just preparing to eat you.” Yes, the python wasn’t sick but…
Whatever comes your way as you journey along in the year, remember the lesson of this story.
A little boy and his father visited the country store, upon leaving the store the owner of the store offered the little boy some free Sweets. “Get a hand full of Sweets” the merchant said to the boy.
The boy just stood there looking up at his father. The owner repeated himself, “Son get a hand full of Sweets it’s free.” Again the boy did not move continuing to look up in the face of his father.
Finally the father reached into the candy jar and got a hand full of Sweets and gave it to his son.
As they walked back home, the father stopped and asked his son why he did not grab a hand full of the free candy. The boy with a big smile on his face looked into the face of his father and said, “Because I know that your HAND is BIGGER than mine.”
Whatever your needs this year, please place them in the *FATHER'S HAND IN HEAVEN,* because *His HAND is BIGGER THAN YOURS.*
