I know a couple who struggled for 8 years to have a baby and I also know of another who got pregnant 3 months into their marriage without much planning at all. Now I know that each of these parents are very excited about their baby and they show them off proudly to family and friends. I have been wondering if the level of love for each is different though. After all the first couple had to struggle for 8 years. I can imagine the stress, the uncertainty and possible ridicule whether obvious or not, that they had to endure.

Does that mean the second couple love their baby any less? They might have had to process the implication of having a child right after getting married and the implication of that on their newly established home. Would that put a strain on their marriage and as such on their relationship with their child?

I guess in essence, I am trying to figure out if the amount of love, care and attention given to each child is affected by the circumstances or the environment of the parent prior to their birth. Just wondering :)

Zodiac Schmoziac

Who cares about horoscope? Seriously, I had no idea people were that into their horoscopes and the bearing of that on their lives. I didn't even know what zodiac sign I was until maybe Junior high or senior high. After I found out it did not change my perspective on life or what path my life was going to take. How does this have any bearing on my existence or what what I do with my life?

If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can check this out. Apparently the Zodiac signs based on the constellations is changing and a thirteenth might be added because the position of the sun is no longer in the same spot it used to be when the signs were made. Hmm.. does that mean that if the earth's axis has shifted and Ghana is in the spot Korea used to be it makes me Korean now? I think it is kind of silly really. Talk about the influence of suggestion. So I am no longer a Libra but a Virgo. Uhm... big deal! (Shake my head).

People are always seeking individuality but I guess deep down we really want that sense of belonging. Why else would anyone get mad because their personality no longer fits into one of 12 categories created. Oops sorry I guess you can not be Miss World now because you're no longer a Virgo? Be careful out there today people. The world is in an identity crises!

We're In

Another year has begun and people are making new year's resolutions and beating themselves over the head for failing on last year's. I stopped making resolutions in 2009... I think. I am not sure if that is exactly a bad idea. For some, it gives the inspiration to accomplish goals and aim higher but for me, I have simply chosen to live in the moment. I simply want to thank God for allowing me to make it into another year. He must trust me with His time so I am going to try to live in the moment and enjoy it. That in itself is a resolution I suppose.

I am working on adding a fashion segment to this blog. If that is possible, I will let you know. I hope everyone is having a great year so far. Happy New Year! God Bless! God speed! Be resolute in your resolution :)
