Let Go And Let God

I find it so interesting how God has a way of speaking to me through mundane experiences. Like right now, this blog post is inspired by the fact that at this moment I am sick and my illness has led me to writing.

One thing you need to know about me to understand this post better is that I hate being sick. I find it so unbearable and so uncomfortable. I rarely get (seriously) sick, I mean the only time I was hospitalised was when I delivered my daughter. So when I do get sick, it almost feels like the end of the world for me.

A few days ago at work, I became so sick that I thought I was dying. During that moment, a million thoughts rushed through my mind. “Who is going to take care of my daughter? How will they get me to the hospital? Will my daughter be okay when I am in hospital? How will my family live without me? I hate being an inconvenience. I have so many things I still need to finish. I am not ready to go God. I cannot die now!” My mind was completely overwhelmed by all the thoughts that were flooding my brain at that point. My greatest fear at this moment was that I would pass out and I CANNOT AFFORD TO BE UNCONSCIOUS because who is going to fetch my daughter from school? (among other things).

I had to calm down before I had a heart attack and ask myself, “Who said I am going to die?”

The reason why I felt like I was going to die was because I was feeling out of control. You see I love being in control of things. I am the kind of woman who has always had control of her life even when it has spiralled out of control. Being a single mother has also fed into me constantly wanting to be in control of what happens in my life. I have always felt that I need to be in control because as a single mother, if I slack, then who is going to step up? If I am not there, who is going to hold the fort? There is just me! The minute this controlling behaviour is disturbed, I panic.

Back to the time I thought I was going to die, I had to find a way of calming myself down in order not to worsen my sickness. At that moment I asked myself, “Andisiwe, do you not trust God right now?” “Of course I do but”….. “No buts Andisiwe. It is either you trust that God is with you in sickness and in health or you do not. So, do you trust God?” Of course I did.

This experience made me think back at how I generally struggle to give up without a fight. Sometimes I do not even have to fight yet you will find me in war. At times I will give my problems to God only after trying to fight/solve them and failing. I end up fighting battles that were never mine to fight, bruising myself and feeling depleted/ faithless in the process. God has been very patient with me in this department because I am very stubborn. I will give up and ask God to take over. Once I gain momentum again, I will take my battles back from God. As if God is not doing a great job with them.

This was the one moment I was forced to let go and let God. Because no matter how much I tried to manoeuvre my illness (believe me I tried), I was unable to control it. I decided to give up. I was in no state of continuing with my usual routine and I needed to either go home and rest it off or go to hospital. And of course hospital was a last resort.

I called a close friend to come and fetch my daughter from school and take me home. I got home and slept until the following day and guess what? Nobody died. I was okay. My family was okay. My daughter was okay. Everything was okay. I simply needed to rest.

I often cause so much more stress upon myself simply because I want to fight and I struggle to let go. Yet, letting go can bring such peace and rest into our lives. Letting go and allowing God to do what He does best is the best thing we could do for ourselves. We were never designed to carry everything on our own. God is there to fight our battles, carry our loads and give us peace. If we are constantly fighting our own battles and carrying our heavy loads, how do we expect to see God’s hand working?

This experience has surely taught me the beauty of letting go and letting God, and how much peace it can bring into our lives. From now on I will intentionally work on allowing myself to let go and let God.

Learn several foreign languages

It’s nice to come to Italy and say “Buongiorno!” passing waiter. And then catch the admiring glances of those with whom you came. Is not it? But it has long been known that learning foreign languages contributes to the development of a good memory. It’s also very interesting! So why not take advantage of this?

These are effective methods for training memory. But there is also something interesting. Memory is inextricably linked to proper and good brain function. This means that stimulating its work allows you to improve memory:

It has been proven that regular sports activities increase brain activity and improve memory;
No to gray days! It is well remembered that that does not fit into the framework of everyday life. Try to change the environment, add bright colors, go to the store on a new path … It is not necessary to radically change your life. Just add something new to your daily routine, and your brain will work with renewed vigor;
Add new habits. For example, tidying up your desk in the morning is a great start to a productive day!
Meditation, relaxation make the brain switch, relax. This means that he will perform new tasks with renewed vigor;
Music has a magical effect on our brain. It has been proven that people who practice music have better memory and analytical skills;
Teamwork. Brainstorms have proven their effectiveness more than once. And now scientists have proven that the decisions made in the team were more accurate and faster. They attribute this to the fact that information is easier to perceive and assimilate during communication. Therefore, solve problems together!
The brain assimilates and sorts information while we sleep. So don’t ignore this process.

This is just a small part of the effective techniques for developing memory. But simple reading will not work. Apply these techniques. Remember, only 50% of the result depends on the doctor, and the remaining 50% on the patient. Without working on yourself, you will never reach the top.
Figure 1. Sample structure of coursework
The above structure can only serve as a guide. When giving the assignment to write a term paper, the teacher usually shows a sample of drawing up a plan, explains which sections should be contained in it.
How to write the introduction of a term paper correctly

The introduction is what is always read. If the main part of the commission (and even the leader, if he is not very conscientious) can skim through, then the first pages of the text will certainly receive close attention. As the title implies, this section serves to introduce readers to the course of the matter, to briefly describe the research. The introduction consists of typical parts:
Relevance of the topic. You need to explain why you chose this particular topic, why it should be considered. The arguments presented depend significantly on the direction of the research – it can be either the novelty of the topic (“in connection with active changes in this area”), or its controversial nature (when one large scientific school expresses one opinion, and another – another), or practical significance. For historical topics, it is necessary to establish a connection with the present, to trace what the events of the past are affecting now, to draw parallels.
Objective. A goal is what you want to achieve as a result of your research. For undergraduate coursework, the goal may be to “learn” something, or “systematize knowledge” about something. In senior years, the work is more practical in nature, and the goals change – “to formulate recommendations for improvement”, “to develop a project”, “to identify ways to improve efficiency.”
Work tasks are a kind of “steps” to achieve the goal. If the goal of the work is one, then there are several tasks. Their number should correspond to the number of paragraphs in the work plan. Each item in the table of contents is a separate task.
Dated using verbs – “analyze”, “consider”, “characterize”, “describe”, “classify”, “reveal” and others.
