18 Signs You’ve Found Your Soulmate

Spiritually speaking, it is said that even before you were born, the name of your spiritual half has been determined. Each soul has a perfect match… your soulmate.

Although most people think of a soulmate as a perfect harmonious union of bliss, your true spiritual soulmate is the person who is intended to help you “complete yourself.”

Jerry McGuire was right – soul mates complete each other. A person is unable to complete his mission in life alone. Everyone needs someone to help them become a better person. This is not always a blissful experience.

Being in an honest, sincere, and committed soulmate relationship helps you to become a better version of yourself. You have to push yourself beyond your comfort zone, beyond your limits to find your better self.

Even though we tend to think of soul mates as a symbiotic union; soulmate relationships can be rough at the beginning. They can be like two jagged edged puzzle pieces trying to click into place. Sometimes it looks like you do not fit together at all, but soon after a little bit of twisting, turning, and flipping the pieces around, you feel the moment of the perfect click. It’s a feeling deep in your soul, that says, this is the right one.

Often soulmates appear in disguise. You might not be physically attracted to each other when you first meet, but there is a mysterious force pushing you forward that tells you this is “the right one” for you.

You have a personal checklist of everything you want in a partner. Tall- check. Dark hair (no curls please)-check. Blondes only-check. 6 pack abs- check. Or you can be like Jerry Seinfeld who knows his date is not “the one” because she eats her peas one at a time.

So, if you are brave enough to move away from your romance checklist, open your eyes and your heart to unexpected possiblities, you might just be one of the lucky ones who finds their true soul match.

You know you’ve found your soulmate when:
1. You just know it.

Something deep inside tells you this is the perfect one for you. It’s as if there is a spiritual force pushing you to let go of everything you previously expected and to give of yourself completely.
2. You have crossed paths before.

Soulmates have met each other and a previous time. You may not have connected, but you were in the same place, at the same time. Before my husband and I met, we lived across the street from each other and worked across the street from each other. Yet we never met until the time was right.
3. Your souls meet at the right time.

Each person has to be ready to receive the soul connection. Even though my husband and I were in close proximity of each other for many years, we did not meet until the time was right for both of us. You have to be prepared to meet your soulmate. It could be that you have to go through a relationship that doesn’t work out, or that you’re not ready to ditch your “perfect person checklist,” but when it comes to soulmates- timing is everything.
4. Your quiet space is a peaceful place.

Being quiet together is comforting like a fluffy down blanket on a cold winter night. Whether you are reading in the same room, or driving in the car, there’s a quiet peace between you.
5. You can hear the other person’s silent thoughts.

With soulmates, there is such depth to your relationship that you can feel and hear what your partner is thinking, even if it is not verbally expressed.
6. You feel each other’s pain.

You stand in each other’s shoes. You know each other so well, that the second he walks in the door, you can tell how his day was. You feel each other’s feelings: sadness, worry, and stress. And you share each other’s happiness and joy.
7. You know each other’s flaws and the benefits in them.

Yes, it’s true. Our flaws have benefits. Every trait has a positive as well as a negative side. It’s the task of each person to always look for the good, even when things don’t look so good. There is usually a benefit to each flaw. Stubborn people are good decision makers. Overly organized people are great at paying bills on time.
8. You share the same life goals.

You’re both on the same page with values, ethics, and goals. You may have a different way of reaching those goals, but you both want the same end result.
9. You’re not afraid of having a conversation.

Conversations can be challenging. Expressing concerns or attempting to make decisions is uncomfortable. Soulmates know that if they join together, they will be able to work it out.
10. You are not threatened by the need for alone time.

Whether it’s tennis three times a week or girls’ night out, you respect each other’s need for independence, knowing that when you get together, your time alone is special.
11. You don’t experience jealousy.

Pretty girls at the office or handsome personal trainers aren’t a threat to your relationship. You are secure knowing that you are the only one.
12. You respect each other’s differences and opinions.

You know you have different opinions. Often soulmates are polar opposite. At times this is challenging. These are the times when you are being forced to let the other person complete you. You still have your own opinion, but instead of agreeing to disagree, there is a deep level of respect for each other. You listen and honor the differences.
13. You don’t scream, curse, or threaten each other with divorce.

Of course you feel the anger. People unintentionally hurt each other. But soulmates aren’t nasty, hurtful, or punitive.
14. You give in because you want to make your partner happy.

Giving can often occur in unhealthy, co-dependent, or abusive relationships. But soulmates give to each other for the sole purpose of making each other happy.
15. You know how to apologize.

It’s not easy to say “I’m sorry” or admit that you did something that hurt the person you love. Soulmates realize that their actions or words cause harm. Even if they feel justified in their point of view, if their partner was hurt by it, they can easily apologize for the harm they have caused.
16. You would marry each other again.

You know this is the one and only one for you. Even through the tough times, you would choose your partner again. You feel a sense of pride in your partner.
17. You complete each other.

Yes, I’m sorry to say it but, your partner fills in your blanks. No person is perfect. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. Soulmates complete each other. It’s the yin and yang of perfect harmony. One person may be the extrovert, while one is the introvert. One may be social, while the other a homebody. Soulmates are often opposite that are attracted to a person who has their missing pieces.
18. Being in each other’s arms washes away all your stress, worries, and anxiety.

There is no place you’d rather be at the end of the day but in each other’s arms. If you had a rough day filled with disagreements, a fight with your boss or if you missed the train, whatever happened is gone the second you cuddle up together. There is a warmth in your heart, an inner peace you can feel. No words need to be spoken. All that exists is the silent, blissful union of two souls together. Two souls that were meant to be together eternally.

Come and see a Senate Building


Come and see a Senate Building

Welcome to the 2015 edition of this column, and thank you for following me all these years. My areas of focus this year will be education, health, politics, and socio-cultural practices. As usual, I will endeavour to inform, educate, and entertain. While trying to hold our leaders accountable in the true tradition of journalism, I will also recognise, and even celebrate, excellence, wherever and whenever it is clearly demonstrated in the country.

To begin the year, I start with the recognition of the strides taken so far in achieving educational excellence in Ondo State. I use as a starting point the inauguration by the Governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko, of three state-of-the-art infrastructural facilities at the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko on Friday, January 2, 2015. The facilities were the Yar’Adua Learning Resource Centre, which houses the university library and its workers; the Nelson Mandela Hall (an international conference centre); and the AAUA Senate Building, which was the centre of attraction. I use the Senate Building as the point of reference for the other facilities.

The launching brochure describes the ultra-modern Senate Building as “a well-ventilated, four-winged, five- storey complex radiating from a large courtyard. It comes with a Council Chamber of 50 seats; a Senate Chamber that seats 184; two 50-capacity conference rooms; 10 Board- rooms; 148 offices and 165 conveniences. There are three elevators and seven staircases”.

The building seats sedately at the centre of a 12-hectare property, adorned in front by two fountains and an open Piazza that conveniently seats 2,500 people. The entrance leads to a large Reception/Information area, from which you can negotiate elevators or staircases or go to the large circular Foyer or the Courtyard, from which four wings radiate through all five floors.

From my own experience of other university Senate buildings in Nigeria, the one in Akungba is unquestionably the best in Nigeria, if not in Africa. However, the significance of the building goes beyond the multiplicity of office space and other facilities. Beyond its symbolism as a sign of excellence, it is the crowning glory of the Mimiko administration’s investment in education in the last six years.

The significance of the building is better appreciated against the history of this educational investment. It all began with a comprehensive plan to simultaneously infuse the best practices into the lowest and highest rungs of the state’s educational ladder, while also fixing major problems with secondary education.

Accordingly, mega schools were built for primary schools, with state-of-the-art facilities, including libraries, computer centres, ample playgrounds, and appropriate learning and recreational facilities. Buses were also provided, which take the children to and from school. In order to improve the content of primary education, additional teachers were hired as needed. Even more importantly, a Quality Assurance Agency was established to monitor and enforce standards in the state’s primary and secondary schools.

Secondary education also witnessed a rebirth, largely in terms of curricular enrichment and teacher productivity. Libraries and computer centres were new additions in many schools, while teachers were exposed to periodic capacity-building seminars. Accordingly, the percentage of Ondo students who passed in five subjects, including English and Mathematics, in school leaving certificate exams improved from below 22 per cent in 2008 to nearly 40 per cent in 2012.

Although the figure dropped in 2013 to 29.9 per cent, in line with the national downturn in students’ performances, it rose again in 2014 to 32.4 per cent, thanks to the administration’s immediate intervention of instant capacity building seminars for teachers of English Language and Mathematics throughout the state.

The bulk of the educational investment, however, went to tertiary education, fearing three distinct institutions, namely the AAUA, Ondo State University of Science and Technology, and Rufus Giwa Polytechnic in Owo. Of the three institutions, one, OSUSTECH, took off during the Mimiko administration.

Yet, OSUSTECH obtained full accreditation for all its courses even in the first attempt. Besides, it was recognised in the NEEDS Assessment Report as one of seven universities nationwide with over 60 per cent of its teaching staff having obtained a doctorate. As for the AAUA and Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, they were adjudged by the United States Transparency International Standards as the best state-owned university and polytechnic, respectively, in Nigeria.

The AAUA has established numerous quality assurance measures, including the Centre for Research and Development, directed by Prof. Olu Aboluwoye and the TLC, which goes into full operation this year, aimed at promoting best teaching and learning practices. Within the last five years alone, about 20 full professors have been hired or promoted, while over 50 new hires have doctorates. In addition, at least 10 new major projects were completed. All these developments took place within the five-year tenure of Professor Olufemi Mimiko, whose term ended on Sunday, January 4, 2015.

It is no accident, therefore, that the AAUA students excelled outside the university, including the Nigerian Law School, where an AAUA student, Opeyemi Longe, bagged a first class degree, the first in 51 years, despite mass failure in the recent bar exams in Nigeria.

The significance of the three major structures inaugurated last Friday is best understood against the above developments. Only those who have seen the structures could understand the huge financial investment that went into them. But for Mimiko, no investment in education is ever too much. It is no wonder then that he recently took a further stride in consolidating the Medical Village in Ondo into the Ondo State University of Medical Sciences. At the moment, the Village consists of the Mother and Child Hospital; a state-of-the-art Trauma Centre; a Dialysis Centre; the Gani Fawehinmi Diagnostics Lab; and other facilities. The goal is to use the teaching hospital as the crowning glory of the state’s huge investment in health care, especially maternal and infant care.

Already, the Ondo mega school concept and the safe motherhood programme have been replicated in many other states, the latter even beyond Nigerian shores. However, it is one thing to copy these programmes. It is another thing to make them work or even sustain them. This is where the governor’s emphasis on relevant database for effective planning, political will, and cost efficient project investment is critical.

These factors were central to the effective completion of the Senate Building Project, which was executed within 26 months from inception to handing over. Today, the building houses the VC and his Deputies; the Registry; the Bursary; the Senate and Council Chambers; and all the staff servicing these Principal Officers and the Chambers.

It is not the case, of course, that Ondo State educational institutions have all suddenly become world class. The point is that the path to world class must be clearly charted and the journey carefully initiated. The government has surely put the state on that path and has come a long way on the journey.

How to make your child love reading

I am among the luckiest fathers on earth. My wife is also among the luckiest mothers. Why? Our children prefer reading to eating. One is nine while the other is seven. Any time they have a novel in their hands, they cannot concentrate on whatever they are doing. I may get angry and reprimand them, but deep inside, I am overjoyed.

When our friends see or hear about it, they ask: “How did you do it? I have bought my children all manner of books, but they don’t like to read them.”

And the result is that our kids have got the fundamentals of language. They easily know when there is an error in tenses, which is the critical element in the English language. So, when you say something like, “I wish I were there,” you would need to explain to them why “were” should be used for “I” instead of “am” or “was.”

In addition, whenever you tell them anything, they think about it, and if it does not sound logical, they ask you questions. So, I am confident that they will not grow up to become adults that will be led by the nose.

Whenever they ask us questions about the galaxy, animals or micro organisms, we know we are in trouble. The reason is that they are always reading children’s science books and children’s encyclopaedia as well as watching animal channels and having access to children’s video dictionary.

So, the interesting narratives in story books and the fascinating information and pictures in science books made them love to read books. These are complemented by the cartoon and video games they watch.

One good thing this does is that it fills a child with stories and information to share with other children when they are together. A child who always has so many stories to tell is usually surrounded by other children who are eager to listen to him or her. That is leadership.

Reading for fun is the foundation of reading to pass exams. We were first concerned about making our children love reading. Even though they were performing well in their exams, our target was to first make them love books. We were certain that once that was achieved, topping the class would be a natural follow-up.

The best time to make a child love books is when the child is little. Even before the child is able to read, buy nursery books and stories and read them to the child. Even if you can’t read stories to them as often as you can, make sure they have story books with pictures that they can look at and play with. No story is boring for children. Some stories are meant to awaken their imagination, while some are meant to tell them about real people that existed and the feats they achieved as well as real events that happened in history and their implication. Therefore, it does not matter if you tell them stories about the tortoise and the lion, Perseus and Andromeda, Achilles and his heel, Isaiah and the prophets of Baal, King Jaja of Opobo and the English colonialists, Nelson Mandela and Apartheid South Africa, Gani Fawehinmi and Nigerian rulers, Julius Caesar and the Ides of March, or Shylock and his pound of flesh. What matters is that you tell them stories that excite their minds.

Most times when I hear, “Daddy, I will not sleep unless you tell me a story,” I find myself in a fix. If I can’t bluff my way out of the conundrum, I look up and down, and if nothing comes to my mind, my eyes would rest on the TV or fan in their room, and a story would start: “Once upon a time, there was a TV named Kadongo.” I would proceed on my story that has no head or tail, pausing to find the next thing to say. Any time I pause, I would hear: “And what happened next?” Most times, just in a matter of minutes, they would have been sent to sleep by my aimless story. I would heave a sigh of relief and tiptoe out of their room.

But sometimes I would not be so lucky, for the next morning, I would be asked: “Daddy, so what happened to the TV?” I would be wondering which TV the child was talking about. When I eventually understood what the child was referring to, I would start groping for words like a snail finding its way through thorns, all in a bid to complete my story. But sometimes when I don’t know what story to tell, I tell them that it is their mom’s turn to tell them a story. Even that excuse does not usually guarantee me freedom from them.

Two years ago, in addition to running out of stories, I discovered that our children were reading too much of foreign stories like Alice in the Wonderland, Snow White, and Cinderella as well as Enid Blyton’s books. I challenged myself to write 100 original African children’s stories in 100 days. Sadly, I ended up writing only 33 stories, which they devoured in a matter of hours and asked for more. We have since got many Nigerian story books for them.

We live in modern times where technology is available to children in different forms: cartoons, video games, computer games, phone games, etc. They need to use these, but the danger in them is that they are addictive and distractive. Children who immerse themselves in them excessively usually feel that books are boring, and these materials can never give the same value that books give. So, what we do is that we limit the hours and periods that our children watch cartoons and play video games. Sometimes, we limit cartoons and video games to weekends or when we are satisfied that they have read books and done all their homework. The rule is that whether we are home or not, our children must take permission before switching on their TV or the central TV for any cartoon or game.

I have noticed that a child that reads extensively and watches different types of cartoons, and plays video games has a mind that is loaded with information and ideas. That is a child that begins reasoning early in life, a child that analyses whatever he or she hears, a child that questions things and is not easily deceived.

Maybe, some children are naturally built to love reading while some are not, but my experience is that if a child is consciously and systematically introduced to reading early in life, it would be almost impossible for that child not to like learning as an adult.
