How your heart makes you happy.

To be happy you must be healthy. Your good health is your happiness. It is hard to happy when sick, there is always a constant remembrance of pain or inadequacy.

Some years back I developed tooth ache and I had to remove the tooth eventually.

Oh geees, the pain I went through for months can not be explained. I remember days when I self medicate, take doses of pain killers because the pain was unbearable.

Happiness is nothing more than good health. 

Also there are pains that are not physical, which affects our heart, our happiness.

Have you wondered why or how the heart is associated with love.

A man can developed a heart attack immediately he hears the news of Infidelity. 

The thought of a bad business, loss of business. Sad news easily affects our heart and in some cases leads to severe illness, sometimes even death.

We experience symptoms of chest pain, discomfort and pressure, pain in areas such as the arms, neck, back and jaw, as well as shortness of breath, sweating and discomfort that mimics heartburn.

How is it even possible that thoughts, news, stories, affection, feelings is linked to our heart. Meanwhile There is no physical cell that can be easily attributed to it.

Our heart beats 100,000 times a day and pumps like 2000 gallons of blood. 

We also read that the heart, which is a muscle, has twice the power of the leg muscles of someone sprinting. 

If the hearts works this hard, is it very important we care for it well. Doing the right things, eating the right foods and having the right thoughts. 

A man can die faster if the thoughts in his heart are unhealthy. Unhappiness leads to depression, eventually death.

We have been told:

  1.  To exercise regularly. 
  2. To check up with the doctor periodically.
  3. Cut down cholesterol.
  4. Reduce salt.
  5. Quit smoking.

Always do this and your heart muscle will be fine.

What about the aspect of our heart that is connected to love, emotions, feelings. How to we care.

We will discuss this too.

Remain happy.

Bridge Builder

Let me share this story, I am sure it will bless someone.
In the little town where I now work, though its a state capital but in the real sense it not as active as many local government areas where I had lived.
Farming is the major occupation, and I hope to start my big farm one day. 

I got to know two brothers who lived on adjoining farms, big farms l tell you, each will be like 10 hectares.
One of the brothers is my friend, this means i get fruits always. 

One day he fell into conflict with his elder brother, It was the first serious fight since they have been farming side by side, sharing machinery, and trading labor and goods as needed without a hitch.

 There long collaboration fell apart. It began with a small misunderstanding and it grew into a major difference, and finally it exploded into an exchange of bitter words. 

One morning, after we ate breakfast (Masa and fish vegetable soup)  masa is a dish in the northan Nigeria made with rice. You can call it rice cake.  

There was a knock on Ibrahim’s. His wife opened it to find a man with a carpenter’s toolbox.

 “I’m looking for work,” he said.
“Perhaps you would have a few small jobs here and there.

 Could I help you?”
“Yes,” said Ibrahim from the dining table. “I do have a job for you. 

Look across the river at that farm. That’s my neighbor, in fact, it’s my brothers. 

Last week there was a fight between us and he took his bulldozer to the river  and now there is a creek between us. Well, he may have done this to spite me, but I’ll get at him.

See that pile of wood by the barn? I want you to build me a fence – an 8-foot fence – so I won’t need to see his place anymore.  

The carpenter said, “I think I understand the situation. Show me the exact location so that I will be able to do a job that pleases you.”
The carpenter worked hard all that day measuring, sawing, nailing. 

About sunset when myself and Ibrahim returned, the carpenter had just finished his job. Our eyes opened wide,  jaw dropped. 

There was no fence there at all. 

It was a bridge… a bridge stretching from one side of the creek to the other! A fine piece of work handrails and all.

You are quite a fellow to build this bridge after all I’ve said and done.” My friend told the old Carpenter.


To cut the long story short:

The two brothers stood at each end of the bridge, and then they met in the middle, taking each other’s hand.  

I was glad these two are back together, not because of the plenty fruits and food crops I get at harvest, and not for the fact that I will soon be investing in agriculture.  

But they did not know I called the old Carpenter to help settle the rift between them. 

I am happy i am a bridge builder, you too can be a bridge builder. 
Like me, if you cannot build the bridge yourself get someone, people you think are filled with wisdom, maturity, who will be willing to help. 

Bridge builders are people with a big heart they love to see others happy. 

 They encourage others and help them achieve more.
So many times we fall short of how to help people, but we know who can help. 

Well, if you have the qualities below, you might consider yourself a bridge builder. Rather if you are looking for one, you can check out this qualities in them.

  • A bridge builder listens. 
  • They provide opportunities. They help others to learn.
  • They are good communicators.
  • A bridge builder is patient.
  • They encourage you, help you.
  • They are always happy with your achievements.

When we see people in difficult situations, in pain, some made big mistakes don’t laff at them, like we do these days on social media. 

Reach out to help, console them, advice them and encourage them, point them to someone that can help.

You are building the bridge gradually.

Share these article with your friends and discuss on building bridges, that is one step to raise bridge builders.

Remain happy.

I TOLD THE PENCIL 5 THINGS

One: “You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in someone’s hand.”

Two: “You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you’ll need it to become a better pencil.” 

Three: “You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.” 

Four: “The most important part of you will always be what’s inside.” 

And Five: “On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition, you must continue to write.” 

There is a price to pay for success. If you look at your lifestyle, if you look at your bank account, if you look at your marriage, if you look at your job. To become better you must put in efforts. Won’t you rather pay and be happy.
