The wonderful thing about social media is that you get to see a glimpse of what is going on in someone’s head at a certain period of time. I love observing people and it’s no wonder that I started observing them too based on what they post online. A lot of people often neglected self-love and they focus on the negative things in their lives and it is reflected on what they share and post in social networks. I tend to steer clear of those individuals because whenever I see their grievances in life, all the time, that negativity becomes a part of me.
I feel bad for them then feel guilty that I am living a good life, even better than what they are going through and that’s not how you suppose to live your life. I don’t want to feel guilty because I’m happy.
Being happy about yourself and your life is your responsibility. You make your choices and you stand up to those choices. Voicing out those negative thoughts so that someone will feel bad for you is not healthy. Because it looks like you’re waiting for someone else to save you and make you happy. And you shouldn’t be looking for someone else to achieve happiness. Loving yourself and understanding what you are will make you happy.
And of course, sometimes you just need the right person to slap you in the face as a wake up call. Then let me be that person.
It’s that time of the year where proms and other formal dances are happening. During these times, young ladies usually find themselves in a bind as to what to wear in these dances. Prom is like a coming of age thing for teenagers, especially for girls, where they could experience wearing lovely dresses, being treated like a princess and possibly get a dance from their dates or even their high school crushes.
Prom used to be just a simple affair where attendees were asked to wear their Sunday Best. After the war, proms were treated differently. It’s like a new celebration where high school students attended it in fancier clothes, depending on what is in at that time.
Here’s an infographic showcasing the history of prom dresses.

Having Lap Band surgery is a big commitment to make, and will mean a drastic change in lifestyle for those who decide to go that route to get their body back in shape. Lap Band surgery involves the surgeon placing an adjustable silicone ring like a belt around the upper part of your stomach. With the lap band in place, your upper stomach will only hold a small amount of food, so you will feel fuller sooner, and won’t need to eat as much. Included within the Lap Band surgery there is an access point where the doctor can adjust the lap band to customize your weight loss according to your needs.
Here are 3 things to consider to help you to decide if the Lap Band is the right option for you.
Do You Qualify for Lap Band Surgery?
The first thing you need to think about is whether the Lap Band surgery is the best option for you. Your doctor will help you decide this but it is good to be mindful of a few different requirements for someone who wants to embark on the Lap band surgery route to weight loss. Firstly you will need to be over 18 years of age. You will also need to be at least 45 kilos over your ideal weight (according to your BMI), and you will need to have been overweight more than 5 years. Another requirement is that your weight will not be due to any sort of illness or disease, as this could mean that the Lap Band surgery does not work. An important requirement is that you will need to be focussed and committed to changing your lifestyle, and happy to continue working with your practitioner, or the specialist who is treating you.
