Nigerians Transfer 80 Billion Naira Daily – Diamond Bank CEO

Currently, statistics on business transactions show that about N80 billion is electronically transferred daily from one bank account to the other in Nigeria. This was disclosed by the new Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (GMD/CEO) of Diamond Bank Plc, Mr. Uzoma Dozie.
Speaking on ‘Media Trends in Business and Big Data Management’ at the Society and Technology Conference and Exhibition 2014, which held in Lagos yesterday, Dozie noted that in compliance with global financial trends and the Cash-Less policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) which is aimed to drive financial inclusion and reduce cash-based transactions in the economy, electronic payment has created a new order in financial transactions and allowed Deposit Money Banks (DMBs) the opportunity to create financial products and services that are customer-centric.
According to Uzoma, e-money is virtually stored monetary value in wallets or accounts, noting that the platform allows the accountholder to access the value of the money with ease, exchange and transfer electronically for business transactions and sundry other payments.
“The financial industry has moved through various stages; at the moment value is being stored virtually. Customers have come to the realization of the ease associated with e-money,” he stated.
Dozie further noted that Diamond Bank has risen to the challenge of the new order of electronic banking through the development of unique products like BETA, a product which incorporates the traditional method of saving for customers who cannot visit the banking hall but their savings are credited into their accounts and they receive an alert on their phones; Diamond Y’ello Account, a product that enables MTN subscribers to open and operate from their phones.
“Diamond Bank also has a mobile App which has functions for financial transactions and lifestyle products. The App can be installed on smartphones and tablets. Customers should not be put off from using this App because it is easy to use, has functional content and secured platform for business,” he added.
It can be recalled that Diamond Bank has been in the forefront of introducing and optimizing the gains of technology in the industry. Since December 2011 when the CBN introduced Cash-Less Nigeria, Diamond Bank has remained on top of the list of banks to introduce real-time electronic banking, Mobile banking App for Smart phones and tablets among others.

Soldiers Reportly Shoot Themselves To Avoid Fighting Boko Haram

A lot of soldiers are not as brave as we thought they are when it comes to fighting the deadly Boko Haram sect.
It has been disclosed that some soldiers and officers are inventing pranks to avoid deployment to the battlefield.
It was reported that about 7 soldiers allegedly opened fire on different parts of their bodies and later claimed that Boko Haram terrorists shot them, but when medical examination was carried out on them, it was discovered that the shots were self-inflicted.
An inquiry has been set to investigate why these soldiers should carry out this type of act and if they are found guilty, they would be punished severely.

Buhari I Still Stand By Dele Momodu [@DeleMomodu ]

This is a very interesting but long article by the CEO of Ovation Magazine, Dele Momodu: Please read:
Dele Momodu: source, thisdaylive.comDele Momodu: source, thisdaylive.comDele Momodu: source, thisdaylive.com

Fellow Nigerians, let me reiterate here that I’m a latter day convert to Buharism. Truth is it took me years to see the light. I had resisted the conversion due to an overdose of poison from anti-Buhari elements that litter our socio-political landscape. Those who wish to continue the current charade and wish Nigeria would remain in perpetual servitude would do anything and everything possible to make a Buhari Presidency impossible and unrealisable. However lies can run faster than truth but truth will always catch up especially when lies become predictable.
I have received many reactions, and read many comments, on my mathematical calculations about the 2015 elections, earlier published. I have also followed the interventions of my two great Brothers, Simon Kolawole and Segun Adeniyi. We are all committed to seeing a better and greater Nigeria. I don’t think anyone prays for the personal downfall of President Goodluck Jonathan who has obviously faced too many challenges in the last four years. What I see personally is the sad reality that the present problems have overwhelmed him beyond redemption, and asking him to continue is to extend these tragic times for another four years. When Dr Jonathan became President, he inherited a burden heavier than an elephant.  If PDP had managed Nigerian affairs a tiny bit, all the hullabaloo about APC would have been unnecessary. But PDP could not keep its own house in order not to talk of governing well.
The implosion of PDP had long been foretold. It is clear that no political party could ever sustain its level of recklessness and rascality forever. Any serious observer and chronicler of events would have seen and known that a day would come when the rampaging monkey would go to the market and fail to return. Such was the case of PDP which behaved like Nigerians were too docile to react or move against it. Such is the kind of complacency and rudeness that has set Burkina Faso on fire today.
The first sign of trouble came from within during the Nigerian Governors’ Forum election in which Rotimi Amaechi roundly defeated Jonah David Jang the favoured candidate of Mr President. But rather than see the handwriting on the wall that something terrible was about to hit its household, the PDP gladiators chose to dig deeper and engage in unholy wars with whosoever challenged its purported invincibility. Before our very eyes, the Nigerian Governors Forum was dichotomised and decimated in a vindictive manner. Seven PDP Governors rebelled and started a nationwide consultation with different socio-political groups. Eventually, five of them chose to challenge fate and decamped to the new amalgamation of political parties known as APC but two later chickened out for obvious and personal reasons.
The birth of APC was bound to change the political configuration and alter the electoral calculations ahead of the 2015 elections. But again the PDP underrated the influence of the confluence of political parties brought about by the emergence and existence of APC. The arrogant assumption by PDP that its power and glory cannot be challenged by APC is what has become its seeming albatross and possible waterloo.
However, APC still has a long and dangerous bridge to cross. My mathematical calculation did not write off the victory of President Jonathan who controls an awesome arsenal which he seems ready to deploy against his enemies. I only opined that APC has a stronger and better chance than the opposition has ever had if it manages its internal contradictions very well. Let’s now examine the defection of the Speaker House of Representatives, Waziri Aminu Tambuwal from PDP to APC. I will address this controversial move from its genesis to revelation before moving on with my forecast.

On the possibility of Tambuwal jumping into the APC Presidential race, my answer is a big NO. That was the thinking once upon a time and I was probably the first columnist to write about it. Two major factors affected and aborted that dream.

They are not willing to let go of that VP slot which they are convinced is rightly theirs. The candidate would have to do one of two things, succumb to pressure from Tinubu’s camp or call their bluff. Neither is going to be easy.

There was nothing surprising about Tambuwal’s dramatic elopement, if it could be called that. Tambuwal from Day One had been living with a lover while pretending to be in a marriage elsewhere. What Tambuwal did this week was to boldly come out by openly revealing the love of his life and damning all consequences. It was sweet revenge against PDP, and payback time for APC, after he’d been rejected by the original lover when it mattered most. Tambuwal would not have been made Speaker but for the benevolence of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu who encouraged members of ACN in the National Assembly to support his candidacy. Since then the Speaker has remained fervently in romance with Tinubu and company.
Tinubu had hoped to groom Tambuwal for the Presidential race. He was seen as a sellable candidate who by virtue of his position and exalted office would readily have his foot-soldiers in most of the Federal constituencies. A lot of work had been done even to persuade the People’s General, Muhammadu Buhari, to come out and anoint Tambuwal publicly. General Babangida had already endorsed him openly. General Obasanjo, the most vocal of the Generals, had no objection to him as everyone knew him to be humble and likeable.
Let me quickly explain before I continue this enthralling saga. Nigeria is a Mafia nation controlled by four different groups. The political Capos are about ten members including Generals Yakubu Jack Dan-Yumma Gowon (the Head of State who fought to keep Nigeria as one country and most senior Army General around), Olusegun Matthew Okikiolakan Aremu Obasanjo (only person to have tasted power as military Head of State and civilian President and has the widest international influence), Muhammadu Buhari (most feared of the lot but closest to the poor people of Nigeria), Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (only military Head of State and military President), Abdulsalami Abubakar (only man who kept his word of serving for only one year without the temptation of elongation), Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma (who has never governed Nigeria but is the richest, very cerebral and most taciturn power-house in the country), Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan (who by virtue of his present position is a member of that Mafia even if he looks more like a stranger in the fraternity) and Senator David Alechenu Bonaventure Mark (retired Army General and current Senate President who has worked his way up the Mafioso ladder in Nigeria)… There are of course a couple of others who have been security chiefs at one time or the other.
A few Royal icons are sometimes contacted or consulted by the original Mafia. They include The Sultan of Sokoto, The Ooni of Ife, The Obi of Onitsha, The Alaafin of Oyo, The Emir of Kano, The Emir of Zazzau, The Shehu of Borno, The Lamido of Adamawa, and a few others.
There also exists a super caucus of stupendously wealthy business men who hold the economy of Nigeria together and form the third axis of power in the country. They include Dr Michael Adeniyi Agbolade Isola Adenuga (the enigmatic billionaire who controls substantial interests in oil & gas, telecoms, banking and real estate whose true worth has never been revealed); Alhaji Aliko Dangote (with interests in cement, sugar, rice, salt, refineries, and one of the world’s richest men); Dr Tony Elumelu (Group Chairman UBA, Heirs Holdings and Transcorp Corporation of Nigeria); Mr Jim Ovia (with vast interests in banking, telecoms and hospitality); Mr Femi Otedola (with a firm grip on the diesel market and petroleum products) plus two controllers of wealth, both ladies, Diezani Alison-Madueke (Minister of Petroleum Resources) and Ngozi  Okonjo-Iweala (Minister of Finance). These men and women have unfettered access to power. Add to the mix some very influential religious leaders who space constraint and time would not allow me to name and you have a cauldron of intrigues and machinations everywhere. All the above-mentioned interests have to be delicately managed with that of the political operatives in the process of seeking Presidential power in Nigeria even if there are occasional or accidental miracles like that of President Jonathan. Tambuwal had a robust network with most of these interest groups.
But the technical complexities of declaring his interest while retaining the Speakership became too knotty to untie. In the process, the steam of Tambuwal’s ambition slowly and steadily evaporated. Then something unexpected overtook the game. Tinubu came into the picture as a possible Vice Presidential candidate. It is still unclear who sold the idea to Tinubu or whether he had nursed the ambition secretly all along. The decision of Tinubu and his team was that such ambition could only be realised in conjunction with Buhari or Atiku since other Presidential aspirants would be too little in status to him. The small group then decided to amplify Buhari’s candidacy. This was how Buhari was cleverly persuaded into returning to the race at a time he had almost said goodbye to perpetual electioneering.
The next hurdle was how to sell what would naturally become a major combustible element in this season of religious conflagration in Nigeria, the Muslim/Muslim ticket, which I wrote agaist very early as a true friend of Tinubu. In fact, a very influential Yoruba man had called and lambasted me for saying the Muslim/Muslim ticket would not work this time. The man was livid as I tried to let him see reason with me. I was now convinced that many people were misleading Tinubu who ordinarily is a master tactician and strategist. The group again decided that for the Tinubu project to work, they must get a Christian candidate for Lagos as palliative to shut up the Christian groups. This was the main reason the Akinwumi Ambode Governorship project became a spiritual obligation.
The group also became very chummy with their erstwhile foe, General Obasanjo, hoping he would not openly attack the project.
Their worst fear was confirmed when Obasanjo gave a blistering attack against a Muslim/Muslim ticket last week thus forcing even the APC Chairman to promptly react that no such idea was ever contemplated. The plan B is now how to get a Christian within the group to step forward as replacement. Except Tinubu changes his mind today or tomorrow, Buhari or whoever gets the APC Presidential ticket would have to suffer some serious migraine because the group wants the reward of working for APC right here on earth and not in heaven.
The first is the belief that no one can ignore Tinubu’s electoral value in the South West. Some party members are so scared of stepping on Tinubu’s toes even if they believe his influence has waned drastically in recent months. Tinubu’s camp unfortunately is not able to produce a Christian politician with national appeal at this time. The best candidate for the job would have been the wonder-man of Lagos State, Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola, but there are problems with him on two fronts. The first is that he is a Muslim like Tinubu. And even if his incredible popularity provides him an automatic waiver, he is locked in a battle of wits with his godfather on the issue of who becomes the next Governor of Lagos.
Tinubu is insisting on Mr Ambode while Fashola prefers his former Attorney-General, Mr Supo Shasore.
About ten aspirants have already picked up nomination forms. Ambode has launched his campaign and so has Mr Adeyemi Ikuforiji, the three-Term Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly and probably the most formidable politician in the race. No one knows how things would pan out.
With Fashola out of the Vice Presidential equation, Tinubu is relying on his friends, the three Musketeers: Yemi Osibajo (a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God and former Attorney-General in Lagos); Yemi Cardoso aka Headmaster ( an accountant, banker with a Master’s degree in Public Administration and Management from Havard, served under Governor Tinubu as Commissioner of Economic Planning and Budget); and Olawale Edun (with an exceptionally brilliant background in Economics and great career in Merchant banking, corporate finance and stockbroking; he was a Commissioner of Finance under Governor Tinubu).
There is a fourth personality under consideration, Professor Robert Ajayi Borrofice, a distinguished Senator of the Federal Republic from Ondo State who was Director General, National Space Research and Development Agency, with a PhD in Genetics. They are all distinguished and honourable men but many doubt their electoral value in a complicated environment like Nigeria.
Many APC members believe the South West should not produce the Vice President so soon after Obasanjo left power. Their greatest consideration is that the region that lays the golden eggs, the South-South cannot be ignored if peace must reign and President Jonathan is to be pushed aside. The conclusion is that both Governors Adams Oshiomhole and Rotimi Amaechi have the national appeal as well as Executive experience that Buhari would require after so many years out of power.
Amaechi in his case has the additional advantage of legislative exposure as two-Term Speaker of Rivers State while Oshiomhole comes with intimidating Labour credentials.
I will still place my bet on Buhari emerging as the APC Presidential candidate. He’s a safer risk for his Party and one man the other aspirants can unite around. He would now have to be bold enough to take the difficult risk of who becomes his running mate.
I wish him the best of wisdom.

"People Are Foolish" CAN President, Oristejafor's Wife Reacts To The $9.3M Money-For-Arm Saga

helen oritsejafor 
Helen Oritsejafor, wife of the founder of the Word of Life Bible Church and president of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Ayo Oritsejafor has denied that her husband’s private jet was bought for him by Jonathan. She also described the recent $9.3m money-for-arm saga involving her husband as a sinister joke. See excerpts of her interview with punch below:

How did you receive the news of his jet’s involvement in the $9.3m money-for-arms saga?

I was really surprised. I didn’t even know anything about it. I didn’t even know our plane was out of the country because we leased it out to a company in Abuja so that we will be able to utilise whatever comes out of the deal for the maintenance of the plane because it is quite expensive. So, we didn’t know. Even though we read and heard some comments some people made concerning it, unknown to us that our plane was actually involved. We were really surprised just like every people. In all honesty, by the time we got to know that it was Papa’s plane, we knew that the enemies were trying to play some prank. It is natural because he is a symbol of Christianity in Nige­ria. If anyone wants to move against Christian­ity in Nigeria, it would be easier for the one to go after the symbol. The only thing is I wasn’t expecting people to get really dirty as they did.

So you were really shocked?

The whole episode appeared as if some­body was out for some sinister joke. It’s quite obvious. Take for instance, why was it that it was Papa’s plane that would be hired? How would it be that it would be his plane of all planes in Nigeria that they needed for that mission? It’s still very baffling. Number two, it became obvious that it was orchestrated and the whole essence of it is to see how they can give him a name God has not given to him, and all because he has been a very outspoken man. I know him too well, he is a very down-to-earth person, and he doesn’t know how to hide his feelings. He is a very quiet and re­served person. But then when there is a need for him to speak about anything, he would rather confront things the way they are rather than hide behind his fingers. That is not him. I know quite a number of people have been very uncomfortable with that especially with the Boko Haram situation.

Let’s be frank, who would not be affected? You are leading a body and gradually, there seems to be an elimination of this same group of people. You would be a wicked leader not to react. So, he made every effort. He noticed that our government wasn’t really forthcoming with a lot of things; we seem to try to politicise a lot of things in Nigeria which is quite trou­bling. He went out of his way to address the US Congress. It was quite obvious that terror­ism was being financed not just from within but from outside as well, whether to destabilise or in a way, indirectly force on Nigeria a par­ticular religion which is quite shameful. And he was not comfortable with that. If you would know, this was injustice. So, he is now paying the price for being an outspoken man, defend­ing his people, defending Christianity in Nige­ria, and do not want Nigerians having to hide their heads later on in life because whichever way we look at it, history will tell.

Some people said President Jona­than bought it for him.

I wish he did. I have the list of the names of people who masterminded this thing on our record. Hundreds and thousands of peo­ple, church folks who said this man served us with every vigour in him, we could see in him a great man and he’s not getting younger anymore. He is ever on the road constantly doing everything he can for the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, let us try as much as pos­sible to elongate his life by blessing him with this gift. He didn’t buy it or put down money to say this is what he wants. He didn’t even know anything about it. I was aware of it. What I would have loved for them to tell me is to show me the receipt of the plane that was bought by President Jonathan and the person who said he bought the plane. I have heard all sorts of lies that maybe somebody did it on behalf of somebody. There’s no human being that can stand up to say I bought this plane. It’s a complete lie from the pit of hell. Because of his person, realising the fact that what should he do with this plane knowing the amount of money that it’s going to cost to maintain it; if he was using church money to maintain it, they would have cried out to say he is using church money. You can see how foolish peo­ple can be. If President Jonathan bought him a plane, can’t the same President Jonathan maintain the plane? Why must it be hired out so as to sustain the maintenance of the same plane if indeed it was the president that bought this plane? They politicise a lot of things. It’s really annoying.

Is Pastor Ayo really that close to President Jonathan as his accusers allege?

I would love it if people can help me de­fine that word ‘close’. Yes there’s a relation­ship that has to do with being in his position as the President of CAN and President Jonathan as the President of Nigeria. Automatically, whether he likes it or not, there will be some level of interaction and that is what Nigerians are calling closeness. Maybe they should tell us how President Jonathan gave him one naira to buy a plane.

I don’t really think that Pastor Ayo is closer to the president than the Sultan of Sokoto, the co-chair of NIREC. This is not to say that Papa hates Jonathan, no he does not. He is a Chris­tian and so as a Christian father to the nation, he tries his best to provide a guard. He speaks out whenever necessary. He goes in to offer his own advice or suggestion as the case maybe whenever he is asked to. When he wants to see the president, he makes request just like every­one else. And mostly, it is to discuss the issue of the nation. Many times, he goes with his CAN executive council members to sit down with the president and confront him on certain issues all to see how the nation can be well pi­loted. What I have noticed is that whichever way you see it, if I say this man is not close to the president, they will say it’s because of what happened, if I say he’s close, they will say that is what we are talking about. I don’t even care what people might say concerning that because you can never please human be­ings. What I am saying is that please before you start giving this man a bad name, find out the true position of things. Do not go out there forgetting that he is a husband to a woman and he is a father as well. Besides, he is a man who has sacrificed himself. I think Nigerians even have him more than I do.

He is a very passionate person. When he believes in something, he’s driven by it. He goes all out to see how he can really push across whatever he is trying to bring in. That’s who he is. When he got the leadership, when he was elected to lead Christians in Nigeria, he made up his mind that he was going to do everything and anything possible to propagate what he has been given. And he sees it as an assignment. Many times, people see leader­ship just to bear a name and enjoy it. I think if this man had wanted to enjoy the leader­ship as it were, maybe by now his relationship with the Sultan of Sokoto would be waxing stronger. And maybe he would have been enjoying more from the government as well. But he has decided to sacrifice all that just like Moses. Moses sacrificed and said he was not going to allow the booty in Pharaoh’s house to override his judgment and so he shut himself out completely from the judgment at the pal­ace and made himself a sacrifice for the liberty and freedom of the Israelites. That is what we are seeing now with our father as well. He has truly given himself out to the nation and, then of course, to the people who we call his con­stituents.

Wife Caught Her Husband Having Sex With His Gay Partner

gay sex-omogist
A man in India has been arrested for having consensual gay sex after his wife installed miniature video cameras in every room of their home and filmed his encounters.
Bangalore police arrested the man under Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code – a 153-year-old law dating back to British colonial days prohibiting sodomy, consensual or otherwise. It makes it an offense to commit ‘carnal intercourse against the order of nature.’
The clause, which had been deemed unconstitutional by the High Court but was subsequently re-instated by the Supreme Court last December, makes gay sex punishable with life imprisonment.
The man’s wife lodged a complaint against him on October 20, as well as her in-laws, for cheating her.
‘My in-laws knew that their son was gay. There was no need for them to ruin my life by arranging this marriage,’ she contended.
According to a complaint filed by the unnamed woman, a medical doctor from Bangalore, she married the man in November 2013.
The accused, who was born and brought up in the United Arab Emirates, had relocated to India after completing his education. It was an arranged marriage.
Within a few days of the marriage, the husband started working at IT firm Infosys’ Mysore campus. The couple stayed apart for almost six months after the wedding.
The wife, 31, who was staying alone in Bangalore, insisted her husband seek a transfer to the area. According to the police, after coming under pressure from the two families, the accused complied.
The couple rented a house in Malleshwaram. The wife, in her complaint to the police, alleged her husband avoided any kind of physical contact with her. He insisted that they sleep in separate rooms and he avoided any discussion about sex.
The wife assumed it to be a compatibility issue. However, as the days passed, the accused avoided her by leaving home early for the office and returning late at night. But on days when his wife returned home late, the accused would get home early.
The IT engineer would use lip gloss and reportedly preferred feminine fashion accessories. This aroused the wife’s suspicion and she confronted him about it.
The police said the wife even discussed visiting a marriage counsellor with her husband to sort out the issue, but he did not entertain it. Suspecting he might be suffering from an inferiority complex because of impotence, she even suggested taking him to the doctor. But the accused dodged all questions from his wife.
The wife then approached her in-laws, seeking intervention. More shock was in store when her in-laws blamed her for the situation. According to her, they claimed their son was ‘perfect’ and that she had failed in ‘attracting’ him.
Not willing to disclose the sensitive issue to her parents, the doctor decided to probe the matter on her own. She inquired with her neighbors and found out her husband had male guests when she was not at home.
When she questioned him, he told her the male visitors were his business associates. However, she was not convinced by his explanation.
She installed miniature video cameras in every room of their home. Later, she left for her hometown for the week.
After she returned to Bangalore, the woman was shocked by the video footage captured by the cameras. She found that her husband had sexual encounters with various men.
She approached the police the same day with the evidence.

Shekau Releases Video: We Don't Have Any Ceasefire Deal; All The ChibokGirls Are Married

Boko Haram sect mercurial leader, Imam Abubakar Shekau in a new video released on Friday night has finally put to rest all the doubt regarding a man, "Danladi Ahmadu" that has been parading himself as Secretary General of the sect.

Danladi Ahmadu has been presented in Nigeria's and int'l media mostly on the VOA Hausa service as the man negotiating with President Goodluck Jonathan's scribe, Mr. Hassan Tukur and Chadian President, Idris Derby promising to release the over 200 Chibok girls in purported ceasefire talks.

But the boko haram leader Shekau, in the new video, said: "We don't know that liar and fake Danladi Ahmadu, we never met this liar with his character as he is claiming. 
"We have nothing to do with him, and our war is not ending, expect more, what you are seeing is just little. There is no retreat in this Jihad; Allah is with us, and we are succeeding."

Sahara Reporters had quoted a senior Nigerian military officer who said the military are in possession of intelligence report detailing plans by the sect to launch deadly attacks in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa.

Few days later many villages were captured by the sect in both Borno and Adamawa state including Mubi, the second most populated town in Adamawa state. Also, earlier Friday members of the sect detonated a bomb at a busy bus station in Gombe killing at least 30 people.

Story Of A Happy Woman: How I Ended My Search For The Perfect Soulmate

From the start I never had the best luck with relationships. I always longed for a meaningful, loving relationship but somehow always got into relationships with people that were wrong for me, individuals that were abusive and emotionally wore me down. And after three failed long term relationships I didn't know what to do anymore. My last relationship (that I truly thought was the one) turned out to be the biggest heartache of them all. And it was the one that I used The Secret for the first time with, but unfortunately I went about it the wrong way, which leads me to Lesson 1 - YOU TRULY HAVE TO TRUST THE UNIVERSE. Even though I made a detailed vision board of what I wanted in a soul-mate I didn't trust the universe to bring him to me. Instead I went out and looked and looked and when I couldn't find the person I ended up settling for one of my friends (thinking he was the one for me). Needless to say that it was a bad decision and a year into our relationship everything fell apart. But out of my biggest heartache came the best and most wonderful life changing experience.

When I re-watched The Secret movie I realized my biggest mistake. As Lisa Nichols says, I thought that by being in a relationship I would find happiness, and time and time again I failed. I never gave myself a chance to find the happiness within me and I never truly let go of the pain from all my past experiences. So finally I decided to change my life and do things differently once and for all, which leads me to Lesson 2 - YOU HAVE TO FIND THE HAPPINESS WITHIN YOURSELF FIRST, THUS YOU HAVE TO LOVE YOU BEFORE YOU CAN LOVE AND BE LOVED IN RETURN.

After I learned my second lesson I was ready to do things right. I went back to my vision board and edited my list of qualities in my perfect mate. I was very specific and detailed to write down every thing that truthfully mattered to me. I made a date by which I wanted to meet him by, which was a month away from the time I made my request. I wrote "That I wanted to meet my soul-mate, exchange information with him and plan our first date by April 30th 2011" From then on I would go back to my vision board at least once a day and really envision what it would be like being with that person. Also I really learned how to love myself for the first time in my life. I learned how to enjoy my own company and truthfully do thing that made me come alive that made me happy, such as working really hard on my 2 bachelor’s degrees and spending more time with my beloved pet. At the same time as I made my request an old school friend of mine (that I knew for 9 years) found me on face book and started talking to me. Now I’ll be honest I definitely didn't think it was him at first, but kept talking to him for a few weeks, and we even tried to meet up once but it didn’t work out. So after that I thought that it was the end of hearing from him but surprisingly he got a hold of me few days later and asked if I had time to see him that night, and even though I was reluctant, I agreed. And thank God I did! We went out the next three nights and I realized little by little that he really was the one for me. He ended up fitting every quality on my list but one, knowing how to dance, funny enough though he is willing to learn! Thus I not only met my soul-mate, exchanged information and scheduled our first date, but actually knew the person all along and went out on three very successful dates by April 30th.

To everyone out there that has made the wish to find their soul-mate, to anyone who might even be losing their faith, let go of your fears, let go of the doubt and believe, KNOW that your perfect soul-mate is on their way to you! I hope my story inspires you and helps you believe.
