Re-Post: 5 Things Teens Should Never Live With

My cousin is back into blogging. It has been a year since her last post. I am glad she's back because I know she has a lot of nice things to share.

And speaking of share... I would like to share her first post this year. It is an excerpt from the Little Black Book about the 5 things teens should never live with. Adults should also apply these to their lives.

*******************


The world is full of people who look back with regret on their teenage years. So here are those 5 regrets you don't want to live with the rest of your lives.

1.) Moral regrets. Don't allow yourself to compromise your purity and be remembered forever with the stains of sexual sin(Rom.12:1)

2.) Ministry regrets. If the Lord is speaking to you about sharing your faith w/ a classmate, take the opportunity. It may never come again.

3.) Mentor regrets. Submit yourself to a good pastor and others you trust to mold you and develop you as a leader. Now is the greatest time of learning and personal development.

4.) Maximum regrets. Never leave yourself wondering what could have happened- in school, athletics, church, or any other part of life- if you would have given all you had to give to succeed.

5.) Media regrets. Don't ever allow yourself to look back at your youth as a time when all you did was to watch TV, play video games, and go to movies. Do something productive in your life,along with your entertainment.

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.

To dream of cleaning, according to Dream Moods, implies you are overcoming major obstacles in life. You are moving ahead toward a new stage in your life.
To see a building in a dream is to see the self. How high you are in the building represents your …

Would you pursue a relationship your parents doesn't approve of?

It is the 20th century but believe it or not, ending a relationship because the parents doesn't approve of it still happens. Parents have various reason for disapproval--religion, family background, social status, looks, etc. Regardless of the reason, still many couples separate ways because one of the partners value and respect their parents and are afraid of being disowned by their own family.
I have a colleague who had an unplanned pregnancy with her boyfriend for years. Despite being in a relationship with the guy for years, her parents are still against their relationship. When she discovered they were pregnant, they eloped but eventually decided to face their parents to sort things out. At first, the parents were furious to the point of really disowning her. Fortunately, her parents finally accepted the fact that she is pregnant with the guy they despise and were married soon after.
Another story that I would like to share has a sad ending. The guy decided to end his relati…
