Step out – Don’t be Afraid to make that Move

Step Out img-20161005-wa0000
Move out
Don’t let fear hold you back
Don’t let the unknown hold you back

Things may not be perfect but step out

If you don’t like where you are, take small steps
But step out
Try something new
Start pursuing that dream you once had

Do not be afraid to step out
It will be alright
It will be okay

Stepping out moves you from where you are to somewhere new.
Stepping out helps you to discover new potentials.
Stepping out gets you out of your frustration.

If you don’t like where you are step out.

How to improve and grow viewings of your social media posts

img_20170121_105345

Be willing to step on and admire other people’s carpet as you spread your Carpet for others to step on.

The social media is here to stay and we all use it to make friends, socialize, share happy moments and not too happy ones. And this one I like it is a life saver in terms of reminding us about our friends and loved ones birthday.

Businesses, organizations and individuals  promote their goods and services online. Here is the deal…
You want other people to click and like your post then you have to become interested in what others do.

I am still learning to share, use my skills and promoting what I do on social media platforms. But some thing I have learnt is don’t be a wall on your page or wall. Go ahead and get interested in what others are doing. Read their posts, comment and like it.

As you reach out others will reach out to you. What good is that “goods and services or skill” you are promoting if nobody clicks to take a look at what you have to say.

Don’t have an attitude of I have got a message that everyone needs and expect that People should naturally take a look.

Tips to get your Social Media posts noticed

* Pay attention to your title
* Learn more about the correct use of the language you write in
* Those who at least like your post, follow them, get interested in what they do too.

*Reach out to new people, organizations or businesses by reading their post, commenting and introduce yourself nicely too.
* Look for avenues to promote your post on other platforms not in a rude way. I mean don’t go posting sales of cars on the comment space of a daily devotional page simply because the traffic is high. I see this all the time it simply turns people off.
* Be authentic; be you
* Find and carve your own niche
* Write about what comes to you naturally.
* Be original; be yourself
* Slowly but surely you will grow and expand your sphere of customer base.

Even Celebraties and great brands get out there to promote and reach out to would be clients so go out and socialize

Dear Diary…Dad, Me & DT’s Jealousy …TBEE Writes #13


jotterI finally had to go home for a sleep over to see dad. I was already home waiting before dad came home from work. Mom said I should stay in my room and allow dad to finish taking his dinner then I would come out to meet with him, hopefully by then he will be in a good mood.

Immediately dad finished eating and I heard him laughing about something, I showed up in the living room and knelt down right beside him where he sat on the couch. “What is she doing here?” dad said in a raised voice. Mom pleaded on my behalf that he gives me a chance to explain myself. She added that she had already scolded me seriously and that I was now sober. Hmmm…leave that angle to me.

I had never seen dad become so angry with me like this. In my mind, I believed that he felt really disappointed in me for not holding onto the virtues of been a decent girl that we were taught at home. I can’t remember all that I said but it amounted to “I am sorry sir”. “I did not forget how you raised me, sir”. I just wanted to have some harmless fun. By the time I was through, I was in tears.
Finally, dad looked at me in the eye and said, “Dear daughter I only want what is best for you”. Fun is good but if you are in the wrong company you will get into serious trouble. He then asked if I had been going to church in school. I said I had been going but did not add that it was a once in a while trip. Dad looked at me and I knew that he knew that I was lying. He took a deep breath and reminded me that he and mom worked so hard to give us the best and it was up to me to face what I was in school for. He gave me a stern warning that it should not repeat itself and that he was going to show up on my campus unannounced every now and then. I was relieved that at least for the moment he had softened up. My dad does love me but I have to be careful and I don’t want to do anything that will embarrass them again.

The next day I was back in school again after raiding the house packing all kinds of food stuff that I needed. DT, showed up at my hostel and asked where I was last night. You see I did not inform him that I will be going home to see my parents, my way of dealing with him for not believing me when I said there was nothing between me and Peter. I did not want him to make a scene outside my hostel room door so I allowed him in.

As soon as I closed the door I faced DT and said, “If you cannot trust me enough then there is no point in this relationship”. His chest moved up and down as he took quick heavy breaths. After staring at each other for about a minute or so I finally said, “I went home to see dad”. A look of relief fell on DT‘s face. “How did it go?” he asked. “Fine” I answered curtly. He knew that I was upset with him, I mean after all it was our party escapade that got me into trouble with my dad in the first place. Hun…what we do for love sometimes, I thought to myself. And here was the object of my love always having one temper tantrum or jealously over suspicious.

DT took two quick steps and held me in an embrace but I didn’t hug him back. He won’t give up as he held me even closer, finally, I had to give in. We laughed and talked. Somewhere in between our chat over a bottle of drink and chin-chin, my phone rang. I looked at the caller’s number to know who was calling, It was a call I did not want to pick.

Guess who was calling? Peter! How would I be able to pick his call just when DT and I had only managed to settle our jealous brawl? I squeezed my face and wondered why Peter was calling me again. DT read my reaction and asked who it was that was calling. I said flatly…Peter. Hmmm…”What does he want?”, in an angry tone was DT’s response. I was not ready for another argument. DT, don’t give me stress; I don’t know why he is calling? He is my class governor by the way. All these and more words came rolling out of my mouth. DT, only had this to say, “Tell him to stay away from you or else…!” What did DT mean by that statement? I honestly hope this will not result in to a fight. I would hate to have that happen because of me.

Finally, DT left and as I lay down to sleep, I am reminded to warn Peter…I don’t want any trouble o. Dear Diary my life is getting more complicated…Maybe I should ….? Well I will have to figure out how to untangle myself.

Looking up to heaven

Prayer changes people
Prayer changes situations
Prayer changes you

Instead of complaining pray
Instead of worrying pray
Instead of giving up pray
Instead of fighting pray
Instead of envying pray
Instead of giving in to depression pray

And I have loved you with an everlasting love and I have drawn you with my loving kindness. Jeremiah 31:3

Give all your worries and cares to God for he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:17

Feeling Left out this Valentine? Here is how not to.

Tim and Biola

Your friends have someone coming to give them a memorable Valentine and you don’t.

Smile, Love comes softly…
Don’t give in to the pressure of feeling Left out or lonely.

Instead of feeling unloved why don’t you step out to show some love to someone today. It could be a friend, a neighbor, your parents even. Just do something nice for someone.

Single and feeling lonely this Valentine? Come on get yourself out there and give yourself a treat. You don’t need a man to necessarily take you out.

Remember love comes softly getting a quick Valentine partner without thinking can get you in a mess after the day passes.

Come on you are loved beyond Valentine’s day.

Love comes softly and it will happen for you.

😘 Loads of love  💞 from me,

Big or Small Valentine Gift… Make a Wish… 💙💚💓💞Happy Valentine to You Especially… From my heart

Valentine’s day comes with love blues. How do you intend spending yours?

My daughter and son are all over the house searching for gift items to take to their friends in school. At first they said we could buy as little as 50 Naira sweet while we were driving home.
The next words painted a bigger picture.

My daughter said: “Our teacher said that if we bring a small gift then we get a small gift back but if it is big then we get a big one! Haha…
Daddy : But I thought you said any small gift was OK.
Mummy : laughing – wo me I don’t have money for gift. When you get home look for those birthday gift items lying around in the house.

When we got home my son set out designing a Val card while his sister intent on getting a big gift from school wanted to wrap about two big gift items!

My Children, they are celebrating this valentine more than mum and dad ooo. 😀 img_20170101_120340

Whether you get a big or small gift… Enjoy your valentine.

Happy Valentine 💓💓💓💓💓
