You write not just for your teachers or your readers, but, more importantly, for yourself. There are several reasons why you should write:
Monday, June 27, 2022
An adjective describes a noun. Adjectives often give precision and meaning to sentences; in other words, they add color to your writing.
Beware: some words are both adjectives (describing nouns) and adverbs (modifying verbs).
e.g. This is hard work. (an adjective)
Linking verbs, such as be, become, look, seem, smell, taste, require the use of adjectives rather than adverbs.
e.g. He is happy.
Conjunctions connect words, phrases, or clauses in sentences. They are coordinating or subordinating conjunctions.
Coordinating conjunctions are and, but, or, nor, for, so, and yet. They join two or more complete or independent sentences.
e.g. He likes coffee, and so do I (like coffee).
Subordinating conjunctions join unequal elements in a sentence or clause that cannot stand alone.
e.g. When we arrived at the station, the train had left.

All About . . . .
Today, the mass media have bombarded the public with tons of information about health and wellness, so much so that it may become even stressful and confusing to some individuals.
One of the objectives of this book is to present relevant information in a readable and easy-to-follow format. You need not read the entire book, though it is recommended that you do. This book is organized in such a way that you can scan the detailed contents page with appropriate headings to find the information you need to deal with your own specific life problems and health issues.
This book is comprehensive in that it covers virtually all aspects of a healthy body, mind, soul—the requisites for becoming younger and healthier for longer.
Life is a myriad of complex problems, which are often inter-related. This book provides you with different choices of solutions. Instead of getting old gracefully, why not mature healthily and youthfully?
The ominous reminders of old age and mortality are your more frequent visits to doctors, the wrinkles on your face, and the change of shape and structure of your physique, among others. Overcoming these ravages of aging is what this book is all about.
This book (more than 200 pages) has a holistic approach to anti-aging; it is a handbook for both men and women in the art of living well in different phases of life through a healthy body, mind, and soul.
This book looks at the reasons why prayers are seldom answered; not from the perspectives of Biblical or spiritual wisdom, but from the perspectives of human wisdom, more specifically, from the TAO wisdom, which is the profound wisdom of the ancient sage Lao Tzu from China more than 2,600 years ago.
Irrespective of whether you pray or not, understanding why prayers are seldom answered may provide a blueprint for your daily life and living in a toxic world so that you may survive and live as if everything is a miracle.
The above is what this book is all about. Click here to get your copy from AMAZON.

LOVE AND MONEY WISDOM
The wisdom of love
If you feel gratitude for those you love and for those who love you, you‘ll be happy.
If you appreciate what you now have, you’ll not feel the lack.
If you love and forgive yourself totally (only you can do that, and no one can do that for you), you’ll learn to let go of the past and move forward with your happiness.
The wisdom of love will give you the energy within for you to do anything and everything in every aspect of your life to give you happiness.
The wisdom of love and money
If you want to marry rich, do you think of love first, or the one you’re going to marry?
If you’re rich, does your loved one love you or your money? The rich and the wealthy, due to their ego, often don’t really care.
If you aren’t rich, do you love an individual irrespective of that individual’s abundance or lack?
There’re no definitive answers to all of the above questions. True and genuine love is unconditional, which is loving someone with or without money, and love is priceless.
The bottom line
Money cannot buy love, and love cannot buy money—that’s the reality. But love is hardly disconnected from the reality of living in the material world that involves money. And that’s also the reality.
So, you must focus on your own core values, such as honesty, integrity, love, compassion, generosity, and gratitude, among others. Your core values have little to do with money; instead, they demonstrate the values of what life has to offer, and not the values of things purchased with money. Your core values affect how you may live for the rest of your life, including with your marriage partner.
So, look at love and money from your own perspectives, such that you’ll not end up only loving money, and not its wisdom.

The TAO is the profound wisdom of Lao Tzu, the ancient sage from China more than 2,600 years ago. as
The TAO has thrived and survived thousands of years for a good reason: what was applicable in the past is still applicable in the present; what was true in the past is still true today. Another testament to this universal truth is that "Tao Te Ching"-- the only book written by Lao Tzu -- is one of the most translated books in world literature -- probably only after the Bible.
The TAO is easy to understand but most controversial. The explanation is that there is no absolute truth about human wisdom, which is all about self-intuition and self-enlightenment. That is to say, your mind is uniquely yours, and your thinking is your own thinking.
