Akin Akman inspirational: They call it pride, I call it class. Lions don’t mingle with cats.

They call it pride, I call it class. Lions don’t mingle with cats. No matter the economy of the jungle, lions will never eat grass. Respect everyone but never ever forget that you’re equally important. Be friendly to everyone but never try to be everybody’s friend. Be open but selective. If you flock with penguins, you will never fly like eagles. If you’re NOT being treated with love & respect, check your “price tag”. Perhaps you have marked yourself down. If you present yourself funny, people will treat you like a joke. No one can sit on your back if you’re standing on your feet. Sometimes where you stand determines how people values you in life, and the price you put on yourself determines your worth. Get off the “clearance rack” and get behind the GLASS where they keep all the “valuables and NEW ARRIVALS. Once you know your worth, how people values you becomes irrelevant. Akin Al-Ameen®™2017 . 

Augustine Mkude: Kile kipindi kigumu Cha maisha kilinijenga nifanye kazi zaidi na zaidi ili nisirudi nyuma


Sikiliza historia ya maisha ya mtanzania Augustine  Mkude ambaye anaishi hapa Marekani katika jiji la Houston, Texas Kama anavyojielezea kupitia show ya The Untold inayo ongozwa na mtangazaji mkongwe wa kimataifa Sunday Shomari!

Familia nyingi za kiafrika hulazimisha mambo yawe jinsi familia inataka bila kujua kila mtu Mungu amemuandikia safari yake kwa njia yake ya kipekee! Kitendo cha familia ya Augustine kukataa kumsaidia eti kwasababu amekataa kuwa Padri niseme kuwa ni hali halisi ya familia nyingi sana, nakwakweli si kizuri hata kidogo. Nafikiri Kuna haja ya kuelimisha jamii kuwa siyo kila mtu lazima aende Morogoro kwa kina Mkude kwa kupanda basi la Abood! Nasio wote watakao kwenda Morogoro kutoka Dar bila kushuka njiani au kupumzika. Just because my enroute is different from yours it doesn’t mean am in a wrong path!

I’m very impressed na huyu Augustine Mkunde. Anaoneka ni mtu mkarimu na mkweli. Wana Houston haya let support Mkunde, Safi sana! …….Hilo swala la kuulizwa “Do you speak English” hata mimi ilinikuta kwenye nursing home moja huko Michigan, sema mimi mgonjwa alisema  “Alpha can you speak English? this is America!” 😂😂😂😂 jamani niliishiwa nguvu nikabaki kucheka tu!…….Anywa, nimependa sana hii show. But mbona sehemu ya nne na ya tano hazipatikani kwa YouTube? Mara yakwanza nipo angalia like a week ago kulikuapo zote sasa leo nimetafuta wee wapi naona mwisho sehemu ya tatu! Vipi? Nataka ile sehemu ya Kilimanjaro connection bwana  😀😀 that was naked truth 🙈🙈

You see this lady!?! Don’t give up!

Zarinah Hassan: We have been created so different, the type of humans who can multi task

“There is so much in a woman that most people don’t know. We have been created so different, the type of humans who can multi task. A man can watch a game and not hear what one said while a woman can watch a movie and still hear, still know the stove is on, and so on (the list is endless). So here is to all the multi tasking women juggling through life as mothers, wives, momprenuers aka business women, caregivers and many more. You are appreciated! It’s all about knowing what comes 1st #prioritize. Salute🍾 help me tag one woman who inspires you. @lukambaofficial 📸” ——-Zarinah Hassan

Jacqueline Mengi: Love is an act of endless forgiveness!

Nimeenda kuchungulia kwa Mrs Mengi nikakutana na picha nzuri sana zakwake na maneno Fulani amazing hivi, "love is an act of endless forgiveness"! Haya ni maneno rasmi aliyo yatamka Beyonce baada ya kumsamehe Jay Z kwenye ile "cheating scandle" nakusema kuwa amejifunza upendo ni tendo la kusamehe bila ukomo / kukoma! Dah! Haya maswala ya mapenzi namwachia Jacqueline na Dr Mengi wake maana site wengine tulishaga achana nayo  😂😂🙈🙈. 
Kuna mtu aliandika article akisema Beyonce amemsaidia sana kwa maneno yake hayo ............."The best part of the show is when Beyoncé gives us the quote about forgiveness.

Love is an act of endless forgiveness. Forgiveness is me giving up my right to hurt you for hurting me. Forgiveness is the final act of love” 

All this while getting shot in a wedding dress. Yes, shit gets THAT real.
We’ve all been there for before where we wanted to hurt the one we love because they hurt us. Why? Because no one can hurt you more than the ones you care for. They know you best and you feel so vulnerable to them.

It is a valuable lesson to be learned here. In order to sustain love, you have continuously BE love. You have to be willing to love through thick AND thin. It’s easy to stop loving once you’ve been hurt but as the late Maya Angelou once said, “Have enough courage to trust love one more time, and always one more time.”

If two people can put aside their ego and realize that mistakes will be made; and know that nothing worth having will come without HARD work to keep it, you can really have that ever lasting love you seek." ............unaweza soma article you kwa kubonyeza 👉👉 (LoveIsAnActOfEndlessForgiveness).

Zamaradi Mketema: Usiangalie mawe kama SILAHA ukayakimbia ila badala yake yafanye ZANA katika kusimamisha himaya yako. MAWE yanasaidia KUJENGA!!

Sisi Binaadamu wengi ni watu tunaohofia MAWE, tunaishi katika hali ya kutafuta njia za kila aina za kukwepa kabisa kurushiwa na kuziba mianya yote itayoweza kutoa chakusema kwa adui zako kitu kinachopelekea kujikuta unaishi hadi maisha FAKE kwa kuhofia tu binaadamu, bila kufahamu mara nyingine ni vizuri kuyaacha yaje ili kujua yanatokea upande gani, yana sababu gani, yatakusaidia vipi na yatabadilisha nini pia kwenye maisha yako. Kwa upande wangu NIMECHAGUA kuyaokota na kujengea NYUMBA yangu, kila jiwe litakalorushwa kwangu nahakikisha siachi lipotee, nitaliokota na kuliongezea tu kwenye ujenzi wa nyumba yangu, hata kama lengo la mawe ni kuniumiza, nitahakikisha yananisaidia pia. Mawe ni BARAKA, mawe ni ongezo, na ni mafundisho pia. Tunajifunza mengi kupitia mawe yanayorushwa kwetu, tunakua zaidi, tunaimarika na kujijenga, tunafahamu nguvu tulizonazo na zaidi tunajifunza hata KUJIHADHARI Kupitia unavyonifikiria na kuyawaza juu yangu unafanya nijue nini natakiwa kufanya, unanifundisha wapi sitakiwi kuwepo nakadhalika, kiufupi UNANIAMSHA, na hata ule udhaifu unaohisi unaniumiza nao usichofahamu unanifundisha jinsi ya kuishi nao na zaidi kuufanyia kazi na kuufuta kabisa kama upo. Unaposema na kunisimanga juu ya jambo ni kunizindua juu ya jambo hilohilo hivyo kama lengo ni kukomoa unajikuta unafeli maana athari njema ulizoziacha utakuja kugundua ni nyingi kuliko zile mbaya ulizodhamiria.

Angalia kila jambo katika hali chanya na utaona faida yake, Usiangalie mawe kama SILAHA ukayakimbia ila badala yake yafanye ZANA katika kusimamisha himaya yako. MAWE yanasaidia KUJENGA!!

Flaviana Matata: The truth is that we can only unleash the power of young girls through access to quality and safe education.

“Today is #InternationalDayOfTheGirl and the focus is on the power of adolescent girl. The truth is that we can only unleash the power of young girls through access to quality and safe education. I am here with one of our scholars Nyamizi who is in her last year of high school. Young girls like Nyamizi have the potential to be scientists, teachers, farmers, artists, mothers, but that is only possible if they are provided with a conducive environment to thrive. @flavianamatatafoundation strongly believes that an educated girl will be a better mother that will nurture and raise her children to be better citizens. Educating a girl is a smart investment because it’s an investment into the prosperity of communities and nations. #FlavianaMatata”

Ridhiwani Kikwete: #sikuyamtotowakike; Huyu ni Binti yangu. Furaha yangu Ukamilika ninapomuona amefurahi

“#sikuyamtotowakike Huyu ni Binti yangu. Furaha yangu Ukamilika ninapomuona amefurahi. Namuona Mama,Namuona Mlezi, Najiona Mimi , Ninaiona Tanzania. Nakupenda sana Mwanangu.”~~~~~~ Mbunge. Ridhiwani Kikwete

Idriss Sultan: Unaweza ukawa loyal lakini usiwe blind!

Hii interview naona ilinipita ndio nimeiona leo!

Kwanza nianze kwa kusema hongera sana Idriss Sultan kwa kupata mkataba mzuri wa kuigiza nchini Marekani. Nakutakia mafanikio mema najua utatutoa kimaso maso!.......Unajua mimi nilionaga zile picha za jeshini nikajua kuwa ni mambo yako ya comedy! Kumbe ulienda JKT 🙈🙈

TRUST: Interview yako nimeipenda sana. Hasa somo la kuwa "Loyal but not blind"!! Nafikiri wengi inatuchukua muda kuelewa hilo mpaka yatakapo kutokea zaidi ya mara moja ndio somo linaanza kuingia. Mimi nasema ukiona rafiki yako hapendi maendeleo ya wengine kaa naye mbali! Ukiona rafiki yako haguswi na upotevu au huaribifu wa mali zako au pesa zako hata kama ni Shilingi moja  achana naye kabisa! Ukiona rafiki ambaye siku zote anataka utumie njia ambayo itakughalimu zaidi achana naye! Ukiona rafiki yako ni rafiki wa karibu sana na watu wanaopinga maendeleo yako (mwenye tabia ya kuuma na kupuliza) muogope huyo rafiki! Ukiona rafiki ambaye pesa ni muhimu kwake kuliko UTU mkimbie haraka sana! Watu wanamna hiyo siku zote siyo waungwana, na wala hawana utu! BE LOYAL BUT NOT BLIND!! Somo zuri sana! BETRAYAL: Asikudanye mtu, betrayal hurts! Inauma sana kwani betrayal involves emotions which are your feelings! Hisia zako ndizo zinakufanya wewe jinsi ulivyo, hivyo mtu anapo kugeuka kwa kusudi la kukuangamiza au kusudi lolote haina tofauti na mtu anayekuchoma kisu bila ganzi! Ndio maana wenzetu wanasema "you stab me in my back"........ Naona wewe upo kama mimi ni ngumu sana kwangu kuwa na rafiki ambaye ameni betray! Don't get me wrong, nitakusamehe, tutasalimiana tukionana, hata kucheka naweza cheka nawe lakini urafiki na wewe ni MWIKO!  "When people show you who they are believe them" ~~~ Maya Angelou

KUTHUBUTU: Pole sana kwa changamoto ulizo pitia, na pia hongera sana kwa kuto kukata tamaa. Naamini wengi tutajifunza kutoka kwako japo wengine tu wakubwa zako. Maisha ni somo endelefu ambalo unaweza lipata toka kwa mtu yoyote bila kujali umri! You have inspired me!

WEMA: Masikini, ninesikitika sana kumbe Wema alikuwa mjamzito? Tena twins!! Dah! Pole yake sana. Mungu atampa wengine muda ukifika. Nimependa the way you talk about her you didn't trash her at all! 

LIFESTYLE: Jamani wanawake 30÷÷ eeh! Hivi huu UKIMWI unachagua ama?! Gosh!! What about magonjwa yazinaa yasiotibika hamyaogopi?! I hope you will well behave huko Hollywood maana huko ndiko kuna jehanam ya magonjwa ya zinaa!! ...........Otherwise, Congratulations! 

 

Hongera sana Zamaradi Mketema!

 Alhamdulillah! Alhamdulillah! Alhamdulillah! Ndoa yenu idumu milele zote! Furaha amani na baraka zote za Mwenyezi Mungu zifuatane nanyi! Ubarikiwe uzao wenu vizazi na vizazi! Alhamdulillah! Though bado nashangaa what happened from 👉👉 “Umeniweza, Nimekuweza, Tumewezana” to the New “Sheriff” in town? What a difference 4 months can make!!Mkague mpenzi, kwa raha zako bibi! Hujaiba ni wako, privately owned by You! I mean you only siyo kama yule “shirika la UMMA”  Ugawaji, linagawa chakula kila mtaa 😀😀😀…………… Hongera sana!

“Be a woman of substance”!!

           Be A “Woman Of Substance”

Jojo is an example of Woman of substance
"A woman of substance is a woman of power, a woman of positive influence and a woman of meaning. To be branded a woman of substance is one of the greatest compliments one can give a woman that wants to be an “influential” female. Below, I have assembled four qualities a girl/woman should possess in order to become a “woman of substance.” 

Embrace your individuality and be happy the way you are:  The pressure put on women in today’s society is immense and I admire any female out there who doesn’t let the high demands and expectations get them down. In my experience, I have learned that we, as women, should not let the likes of “perfected” images or “criticism” affect us and It has came as such a relief to me to realize that being different and imperfect is far more interesting than being a “perfect” person. I believe that being yourself and feeling happy as yourself- just the way you are signifies the word “beauty.”

Use your voice: We were all blessed with voices to use them- so use them! I’m a relatively quiet person and a woman of not many words who next to never will indulge in small talk chit chat. It’s just who I am. However, on the other hand, when it comes to standing up for what I believe in or voicing my opinions on things, I never fail to make use of my voice. And neither shall you! Make use of what god has given you and say what you think, say what you believe in, and argue against what you don’t.

Find your dream in life and pursue it: Follow your heart…never give up…and you can do anything. We all have the ability to do whatever it is we want to do and fulfill any dream we want to fulfill; we just have to go and do it. When you find your passion in life, it creates a meaning in your life and gives you a purpose in the world: it generates happiness.

Faraja Nyalandu: Tanzania itajengwa na sisi wenyewe

R.C Paul Makonda katika ujenzi wa taifa
Director wa Shule Direct Mrs Faraja Nyalandu

“Tanzania itajengwa na sisi wenyewe. Watu wa kawaida lakini tuna uwezo wa kufanya vitu visivyo vya kawaida. Ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Stand in the gap. #Tanzania”

Hayo 👆 ni maelezo yake Mkurugenzi Mkuu wa Shule Direct kuhusiana na picha hiyo ya Muheshimiwa Paul Makonda

Yesss! BossLady! Don’t let her over-shine you! Just keep Queening!


 “Am such an early morning person as some can see on my snap, usually up by 5am. Let’s start this day on a different note, shall we🤗 Ladies and gentlemen I’ve heard you loud and clear, the advises, the consolation, the pity, the hurt you feeling on my behalf most of all the betrayal. But let’s look at this on the positive side. When a person chooses to cheat on you it’s not YOU actually its THEM which usually turns out that they played themselves while they thought they are playing you. You should never look down on yourself, don’t ever think you are worthless because of another person’s mistake & never blame yourself. But always look at how to pick yourself up and get going. That said, with my birthday approaching let’s put all this negative energy behind us and appreciate, LIFE! 🌹”

 Yes! You Go Zari!! Don’t let her over-shine you! You have been a Queen way before her and CROWNS ARE A GIFT FROM GOD, THEY ARE CUSTOM MADE!! NO ONE CAN FIT ON YOUR CROWN BABY!!  IT GOT YOUR NAME WITH IRREMOVABLE SIGNATURE FROM GOD!!  Just keep Queening!! I love you even more!! ❤❤❤❤ Birthday loading huh 😍😍 shame on them 🙈🙈 And Diamond ataembea kwa magoti mpaka South Africa?!!  let them cry and their heart bleed badly 😂😂😂😂😂😂
