More beautiful words from a friend…hope it inspires us to raise up from the ordinary
Many a time, we complain about the way different people treat us, we wonder why we are constantly losing jobs and friends, we worry about our spending habits, we continuously worry about problems which we cause due to our ignorance or excessive pride. And in such moments, we wonder if we are useful in society, we take bets on our own lives and most times, we lose.
Not many self help solutions lie around waiting to be used, and some of this stuff, no one will take you to class to acquire it, it’s only common sense, or rather rare sènse easily acquired.
Raise your standards, by this, I mean you should change your ways, do the things you think you must be doing, get it out of your thoughts into action, if you can think it, I believe you can do it. It all begins with an active imagination…

I am not going to piss into anyone’s can or bottle of soda, and certainly not on the brilliant marketing campaign that the Coca Cola company is running right now.
This is the ‘Share a Coke‘ campaign we’re all talking about, in which people are putting their names on cans or bottles of Coca Cola…or, to be accurate, Coca Cola is putting people’s names on cans and bottles.
I had ignored the campaign as I subconsciously do most of these things, but last week found myself at the checkout till of the Nakumatt Oasis where the lady taking my money tried to kick off a strangely familiar conversation with me but failed because she called me “Daniel.”
“Isn’t your name Daniel?”
“Eh-eh! So why have you bought this?” she asked, pointing at the bottle.
It clicked, I laughed, and then told her to finish her job so I could…

Teenage pregnancy has kept thousands of girls from school. Photo Credit: Echwalu Photography
UGANDA has for some time now had the highest rates of teenage pregnancy in Sub-Saharan Africa at over 25% despite the existence of a law criminalizing Defilement. UBOS 2011 statistics indicate that the number of teenage mothers in the West Nile sub region shot from 3.7% in 2006 to 6.6% in 2011 despite several efforts by civil society to reverse the trend.

Invest in Personal Improvement..
Waking up is the best thing next to eating, the thought of food can be overrated but so is the smell of it. Life, has many things to offer apart from love, sadness and happiness. Ours is a world of transformation, the age of diversity, socialism and multiple freedoms. Everything we do is a result of our own choices, and so is unemployment.

Can you be employed? I have come to realise that it’s nolonger about the weight of the CV, and I have come to terms with it.
