SOULMATE Episode 12
You can’t stop the future
You can’t rewind the past
The only way to learn the secret
…is to press play.Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them,that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.For what it�s worth: it�s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There�s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you�re proud of. If you find that you�re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.

I grew up in a very religious home ,we prayed everyday but when I disappointed my family ,I thought I disappointed God as well ,I stopped praying ..a week later my husband and his family were called by my family ..

I went back to Lusaka the next morning ..

I was so frustrated with his attitude ,I just told Ben to let him be ,when he wants to sign ,he will sign but I was never going back to him ever again ..I was a fool In love but I have learnt my lesson ..I was so done with men.
