Well Hello to you!
I know, it’s been a while! You know that feeling of wanting to write, publish and keep up with managing your blog but somehow, it is put on hold for so many reasons… Sometimes you need to just step back, catch your breath, sort out what is important at the moment, go into a “reset mode” and repackage.
Never feel guilty about taking a break when you need one. Take time to sort through stuff.
So my life has been a mixed bag of sorting out life! But I never forgot the reason why I started this blog…to find my voice, share stories, give a voice to women like me, and somehow impact someone positively.
Guess what?! After trusting God for a change, applying the strategies of planning, taking necessary steps to achieve my desired change I landed a new job position !! (I will be sharing stories about the new lessons I am learning with you here soon).
For now, I am simply grateful for you and everything that has happened in the last few months. It has been a roller coaster of mountain top and valley experiences, through it all, I am still here, going on strong. I am excited about a new horizon…great things loading!
You are stronger than you think, things will eventually work out for your good. Don’t give in.
Enjoy the different seasons of your life. Tears will always give way to joy, keep trusting, keep believing. Sending a silent prayer your way to pull you through whatever rough season, you might be experiencing.
You Matter. Do not wait for others to validate or love you ; because you are still here on planet earth, you have a precious purpose. Your story and life’s journey are valid, make them a Springboard.Love yourself, because you are beautiful inside and out, never believe less of yourself.
Be bold, dare to reach for your goals and dreams. Take it one doable task at a time ; take one day at a time. Change what needs to be changed ; change what you can.
Do not belittle your achievements and milestones. Make a list of even the smallest achievement and you will be surprised at how far you have come.
The little thoughtful acts and kindness ; your efforts to develop others and yourself is making huge impact, more than you know.
You are changing to become better stop beating yourself up mentally. You are not where you used to be.
You don’t have to save the world to make a difference, a life touched in your corner is indeed a change to the world.
Great things are happening to you and for you. Keep matching on, doing your best and watch beautiful things unfold. Even to your old age, you will be fruitful.
For I know the plans that I have for you. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future – Jeremiah 29:11
Lately there has been so many stories in the news about people who just throw in the towel and end it all.
A young girl committed suicide because her boyfriend jilted her just last week!Some others simply give up on life because of one disappointment or the other. Things are not adding up for you lately… Yes… But it is not the end of your life. Come on you are stronger than this!
You are not down and out! You are only down for a while so get up, your season is changing for good.
In this short video I share my heartfelt thoughts on being optimistic about your life & situation. Have a blessed & fruitful week

Just like that, the first quarter of the year 2019 is gone! It’s a new quarter and a new beginning, get yourself set mentally, emotionally and physical to make it count! How do you do that? Take a step back ; take a pause and appreciate your milestones. Be #Grateful.
There is always more and the best will yet happen for you! But remember –
If you can not appreciate where you are now then you will not be satisfied when you get to your desired destination!
Enjoy your week and have a truly blessed April.

The Count Down to the new year ended days ago and here we are already counting days! Don’t be alarmed or worried if you are yet to figure out your goals and plans.Perhaps you have a few things figured out already but don’t even know the moves to make or steps to take yet towards achieving your goals. Hey… take your time, it is not a hundred metres dash race! Slow and Steady will eventually win the race!
SOMETIMES YOU DON’T HAVE TO START A NEW YEAR WITH A NEW GOAL-
Review the previous years projects and goals and see if you need to build /consolidate on things you started last year. Mostly we all think that there must be new goals and plans for the new year, this is not always necessary. You can expand on things you are already working on and achieve a higher level of growth and success.
Tips to Help you with Running Your Race this new year
Take time out to think through what you want changed; what you want to achieve or acquire.
Write down a list of the changes you want and what you want to achieve.
Take a closer look and ask yourself, “What is really important to me right now?”. This is cutting down on your long list to help you arrive at the most productive and profitable goals that will help make your life better.
Remember 2019 is personal to you –Yes you arrived in the new year with friends, family and colleagues, remember the Journey is personal to everyone.
Run your own race, stop that habit of comparing yourself with that of others around you. YOU REALLY DO NOT KNOW THEIR STRUGGLES!
5.When you become clear about what is really important to you, get specific about what you want to achieve in that particular area. For Example : One of my main goal and pursuit this year is, “Self Development”. So I sat down to think through and pen down what area of my life I want to develop. SKILLS- I want to learn more about video editing using my smartphone. Already I am checking out apps and reaching out to a friend who is good at this. FAITH – Plan my week every Sunday and decide on what book of the Bible to study and focus on for each week.
6. TAKE ACTION– It is not enough to know or be clear about what you want to achieve, you have to take action to make them happen. You don’t have to necessarily take a big leap; take small and simple steps to get you to making a reality of your dreams/goals. It can be as simple as making a call; reading a book about the new skill you want to acquire ; changing your diet, exercising more; building a better love life ; enrolling in a course or simply just getting out of bed everyday to do something.
7. Take time to connect with the divine and pray about your goals and what you want to see happen for you. I tell you there is a place for divine or supernatural help.
8. Love yourself; Love your life, Live your life.
2019 is not a hundred metres dash; run your race, slow and steady and win your race.

If you trekked(long walk) and endured a lot during your NYSC(National Youth Service Corp) days then you must be greatful that you made it through like me😀
I remember the long walks from Roundabout Mokola to Dugbe(some kilometers) many times – no money
I remember walking home in the rain one day as I wept but no one could tell the difference between my tears and that of the rain
I remember that I had so much fun too.
I remember the day of our passing out after the one year service to our father land(Nigeria) . I held the certificate of discharge in my hand and wondered what the future holds for me.
Its been over 17 years now! My journey through the years has delivered to me opportunities I never imagined! Now I drive through those same kilometers and neighborhoods I had to walk through in the rain/high sunny day 🌞🌞⛈️
Tough Times Don’t Last… That painful and dark season will soon pass giving way to light and better days. DON’T GIVE IN.
So I am here today saying thank you Lord, Baba e seee! Glory to God!
