Ways To Establish Trust In Your Relationships - Sue Pillow Talk.

Trust is the most essential part in dating and relationship. A relationship without trust does not make any sense. The word ‘trust’ is spoken and mentioned so many times but not many people actually know its meaning and importance in establishing trust in relationships and dating.

For example; you are always checking your partner’s emails and phone history and wanting to know who they are communicating with or you play detective and want to know everything
your partner is doing or you doubt your partner and don’t really believe in
them,and with all these you claim to trust your partner.

Power of Persistence; Thomas Alva Edison. -Sue Inspires

He was born in 1847 in Ohio,hearing impaired and considered slow to learn,his teachers thought he was retarded,his mother pulled him out of school and decided to home school him

By 19,edison was working for western union,where he spent time reading and experimenting (he was later fired when the battery acid he used for one of his experiments destroyed his boss desk).

No Excuses, Just Solutions-Sue Motivates

Excuses as we all know tend to compromise life and keep us from accomplishing our true potential. Although problems will always occur,this is a good thing; for in each one there is a solution and a chance to learn,an area of discovery ,and a challenge to grow.

While some difficulties may be large or complicated ,the same formula applies,learn to solve them and work through them. Find an advantage in each one,learn to grow and never deviate from your objectives. Perhaps a benefit learned is what not to do in the future,or you discover a different approach

Hello guys!

Today's theme is about Making excuses instead of finding solutions,as usual I will be posting:

4 Fashion tricks to look taller-Sue Fashion.

We all know there are certain things that simply can’t be changed—as much as we might want to. One great example: height, which can

Unhealthy Comparisons-Sue Motivates

A certain level of competitiveness is good,you need it. When children enter a spelling contest they study harder and learn more because they are going to compete.

But when your competitiveness makes you feel less than or better than another person,it's gone too far.

Ask Sue: Inspirational story-Make Each Day Count.

My brother-in-law opened the bottom drawer of my sister's bureau and lifted out a tissue- wrapped package. "This," he said, "is not a slip. This is lingerie." He discarded the tissue and handed me the slip. It was exquisite; silk, handmade and trimmed with a cobweb of lace.

The price tag with an astronomical figure on it was still attached. "Jan bought this the first time we went to New York, at least 8 or 9 years ago. She never wore it. She was saving it for a special occasion. Well, I guess this is the occasion."

But now because of the time that's passed,the disappointments they have experienced,and the pressures of life,they are not excited about them anymore. They have lost their fire.

Father's Day Special-what makes a Dad

Father's Day is not as respected and popularly observed as Mother's Day.

There is a simple reason for this. Although almost everyone has difficult
issues with their mothers, there is no doubt as to their mother's love. The same is not true for fathers because men have a more difficult time expressing their feelings to their children, many children go
through life with the mistaken notion that their fathers don't love them.

Chef uchecancook weekend special: How to cook pasta

Pasta is a very simple dish that can be prepared very quickly. This technique of cooking will give you perfect pasta without spills.


Take a very large pot – a stock pot is ideal. Half fill it with water and add enough salt that when you taste the water it tastes like the sea (this is alot of salt, but it is necessary to bring out the flavor in the pasta – it is the way pasta is cooked in Italy).

ASK SUE:INSPIRATIONAL STORY- life lessons from a teacher;another version of the same story (2)

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. So the professor then picked up a box of small pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly.

The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was. The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous "Yes."

Hello guys,

I shared an amazing poem sometime ago by Rudyard Kipling,this is another one and he titled this one "The Winners"


What the moral? Who rides may read.
When the night is thick and the tracks are blind
A friend at a pinch is a friend, indeed,
But a fool to wait for the laggard behind.
Down to Gehenna or up to the Throne,
He travels the fastest who travels alone.

White hands cling to the tightened rein,
Slipping the spur from the booted heel,
Tenderest voices cry " Turn again!"
Red lips tarnish the scabbarded steel,
High hopes faint on a warm hearth-stone--
He travels the fastest who travels alone.

One may fall but he falls by himself--
Falls by himself with himself to blame.
One may attain and to him is pelf--
Loot of the city in Gold or Fame.
Plunder of earth shall be all his own
Who travels the fastest and travels alone.

Wherefore the more ye be helpen-.en and stayed,
Stayed by a friend in the hour of toil,
Sing the heretical song I have made--
His be the labour and yours be the spoil.
Win by his aid and the aid disown--
He travels the fastest who travels alone!

Poem by: Rudyard Kipling

There was once a very wise teacher, whose words of wisdom students would come from far and wide to hear. One
day as usual, many students began to gather in the teaching room. They came in and sat down very quietly, looking to the front with keen anticipation, ready to hear what the teacher had to say.

Eventually the teacher came in and sat down in front of the students. The room was so quiet you could hear a pin drop.
On one side of the teacher was a large glass jar. On the other side was a pile of dark grey rocks. Without saying a word,the teacher began to pick up the rocks one by one and place them very carefully in the glass jar (Plonk. Plonk.)

When all the rocks were in the jar, the teacher turned to the students and asked, 'Is the jar full?' 'Yes,' said the students. 'Yes, teacher, the jar is full'.
Without saying a word, the teacher began to drop small round pink pebbles carefully into the large glass jar so that they fell down between the rocks. (Clickety click. Clickety click.) When all the pebbles were in the jar, the teacher turned to the students and asked, 'Is the jar now full?'

The students looked at one another
and then some of them started nodding and saying, 'Yes. Yes, teacher, the jar is now full. Yes'. Without saying a word, the teacher took some fine silver sand and let it trickle with a gentle sighing sound into the large glass jar (whoosh) where it settled around the pink pebbles and the dark grey rocks.

When all the sand was in the jar, the teacher turned to the students and asked, 'Is the jar now full?' The students were not so confident this time, but the sand had clearly filled all the space in the jar so a few still nodded and said, 'Yes, teacher, the jar is now full. Now it's full'. Without saving a word, the teacher took a jug of water and poured it carefully, without splashing a drop, into the large glass jar. (Gloog. Gloog.)

When the water reached the brim, the teacher turned to the students and asked, 'Is the jar now full?' Most of the students were silent, but two or three ventured to answer, 'Yes, teacher, the jar is now full. Now it is'. Without saying a word, the teacher took a handful of salt and sprinkled it slowly over the
top of the water with a very quiet whishing sound. (Whish.)

When all the salt had dissolved into the water, the teacher turned to the students and asked once more, 'Is the jarnow full?' The students were totally silent. Eventually one brave student said, 'Yes, teacher. The jar is now full'. 'Yes,' said the teacher 'The jar is now full'.

The teacher then said: 'A story always has many meanings and you will each have understood many things from
this demonstration. Discuss quietly amongst yourselves what meanings the story has for you. How many different
messages can you find in it and take from it?'

The students looked at the wise teacher and at the beautiful glass jar filled with grey rocks, pink pebbles, silver sand, water and salt. Then they quietly discussed with one another the meanings the story had for them. After a few minutes, the wise teacher raised one hand and the room fell silent. The teacher said: 'Remember that there is never just one interpretation of anything. You have all taken away many meanings and messages from the story, and each meaning is as important and as valid as any other'. And without saying another word, the teacher got up and left the room.

Keep refreshing for another version of this amazing story.

I recently read an article on ,and this is what I found out from an expert who talked about models and their new diet plan


It’s no surprise when a new diet plan takes over the modeling world, considering we’ve heard of everything from the Master Cleanse to the Tapeworm diet, but the latest diet fad (or breaking news, rather) among models is just downright disturbing.
When we read that Bria Murphy, Eddie
Murphy’s daughter and aspiring model, revealed that some models have turned to eating cotton balls dipped in orange juice to feel full on virtually zero calories, we were beyond shocked.

There’s incredible pressure on models to be thin, especially during busy times like fashion week, but eating non-food items found in your medicine cabinet and dipping them in juice takes things to an entirely new low.

The 3 scary facts about this diet:

1. There’s absolutely no nutritional value, there’s no fiber, and they’re not taking in any nutrients against calories. They’re really just eating these cotton balls to make themselves feel full for a short period of time, and there’s such a small amount of orange juice soaked into the cotton ball that the juice is really more of a way of making the cotton ball more palatable.

2. They sustain on caffeine and/or other supplements, but they can't sustain very long. Your blood pressure is so low and out of whack when you’re not eating, so they probably eat a few cotton balls and the orange juice spikes their energy, and then they’ll crash. They can’t be eating more than 500-800 calories a day on a diet like this.

3.Side-effect:There’s got to be malnutrition going on, and it’s likely that if they keep a diet like this up, their bodies will go into starvation mode, meaning their metabolism will slow down and their body will process any fat and protein available, which leads to becoming dangerously skinny. Plus, because cotton is not meant to be digested, it could be harmful to their esophagus and intestinal tract. There’s likely to be constipation, which they might be combating with laxatives.

I would absolutely not recommend this to anyone. Whatever happened to eating right and good old exercise!

Love Always



The Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) has dismissed the report of a plane crash in Lagos describing it as a hoax .
In a statement by the Managing Director of the agency, Mazi Nnamdi Udoh said, ” the attention of (NAMA) has been drawn to a purported plane crash yesterday at Igando, a suburb in Lagos State.”

‘’ This morning, we were inundated with phone calls and enquiries over a crash involving a small aircraft but there is nothing like that ,it is a hoax because our system did not capture any missing plane’’,the managing director of the agency, Engr. Mazi Nnamdi Udoh affirmed in Lagos on Thursday while dispelling
the rumour.

NAMA boss said in a statement that the aircraft in question is actually a junk one belonging to Late Apostle Gabriel Oduyemi of Bethel Ministries and had long been parked at a NAMA facility up till Wednesday night when it was eventually removed. “The aircraft was actually released to Captain M.J.Ekehinde who will be using it for educational purposes in Badagry, Lagos.

A cross section of the wings was removed to ease transportation to
its new location. The aircraft at Sanya Bus stop along Oshodi – Apapa Expressway

“I affirm again that NAMA facilities are working at optimal level and this could have assisted in detecting any missing plane within the nation’s airspace. While we appreciate the concern of the public on sighting the plane at an unusual site, we urge that people should always contact police and local government officials for proper information before spreading the news on incident involving any aircraft.”

It will be recalled that the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, had earlier issued a week ultimatum to owners of abandoned airplanes in all airports in the country to evacuate them immediately, saying it constituted security threat to the country.
