👟👟👟👟👟👟👟 If you have ever been part of a long distance or miles race then you know that feeling when you look ahead and see the finishing line. Definitely your muscles will be aching and you are probably breathing through your mouth taking in as much air as you can. What keeps you going is that hope of finishing your race soon.
At the beginning of a race when the whistle goes off, all runners take off at once each still full of energy and the determination to win the race. Soon some will drop off the race for many reasons ranging from not been fit to endure the pain or simply just giving up.
Hope you haven’t given up on yourself and goals yet? Remember this journey of the year 2017 is your own race. There is no need to compare your successes or achievements with that of others.
Time to count your blessings as some other persons unfortunately didn’t make it this far but you made it. Be grateful and list your blessings, achievements and successes. Every little thing counts, celebrate your small and big successes.
I have so much I am grateful for that listing them will take the whole day but here is a few:
- For the times when I failed and learned a few lessons.
- For close doors though painful but led to new and beautiful opportunities.
- For strength to go on even when I am weak.
- My children’s school promotion and ability to learn and apply knowledge.
- My husband’s new milestone of owing his own school and building his business.
- Gift of friends and family
- Gift of work
- Gift of life and health
- The gift of blogging 😀
- And so much more
So here is the thing... You made it this far, have faith; have hope. All will end well in spite of the unpleasant experiences.
Happy New month!!

This is what we got for breakfast at a workshop.
Yeah trust my fellow Nigerian clan… Meat pie, fish roll and one meat plus a cup of tea is an appetizer! 😀😀.
Correct breakfast is a full plate of beans and plantain and for some a big bowl of eba or fufu… 😂😂 will suffice for the whole day.
So here we were at the workshop praying that lunch time will come quickly as our stomachs rumbled.
Welcome to a brand new week. It is a week filled with new possibilities.
What you need do to have a successful week.
- Be optimistic,
- write a few points on things you want to achieve
- Go for it
While you are reeving “your engine” and charging up to run this week’s race remember…
- Remember to take a good breakfast before setting out in the morning.
- Remember to take a break in between your tasks for the day.
- Remember to rest and sleep well at night.
- Remember to take care of yourself as well as you do with work.
It is not what you are going to do that matters but what you are doing now – Napoleon Hill
Enjoy your week!

Do you always have things together in your life? I mean are you always on point? Are you clear about what you should be doing next? Do you know where you want to be next? Are you ready to do something really great and profound? Do you want to save the world?
Hahaha… You only need to save the next person to you and the world will be just fine. 😀😀
Personal Lessons :
I am learning to take one day at a time, so should you.
I am learning that the little things I do for myself, family, friends and even strangers matter.
You have got to be grateful for what you have and where you are before you can appreciate the next level
Today I am grateful for the gift of life, for when I am alive I can dream on and achieve.
Today I am grateful for a good health for I could have been paying a lot of hospital bills that I don’t even have money for.
I am grateful for the opportunity to visit a sick loved one in the hospital and just be there for them.
I am grateful for the opportunity to write this post and basically been able to write something that others stop by to read.
My life is still loading…
I am looking forward to doing great things and been a person of positive influence.
So my encouragement to you… Your life is still loading too…it doesn’t matter how old you are, there is much more to your life.
You don’t always have to have it together. Do what you can and watch things unfold.

Happy new month! And its a new beginning.
New beginnings come to those who step out in faith. Dr. Robert Wiegel
If you follow your purpose, the profit will follow you. TD Jake’s.
The thought of a new beginning is scary because you don’t want to risk failing. Step out in faith.
It is one thing to remember past successes/failure and another to remain in the past. Time to move into new things… New success stories.
You can not keep living in the old way(sin) and expect change.
Behold I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19
Courage does not mean a lack of fear, but rather the gumption to stand firm in threatening circumstances because your trust is on the Lord. Steven J. Cole.
May you experience new joys this August.

Thank God it’s Friday. I have been pressed for time putting together programs to be submitted for broadcast during my fours weeks vacation. Putting pen to paper or typing any words to post on my blog is like a luxury. I hope to have plenty of time to do that during my time away from office work… Hmmmn… Am I not supposed to be on vacation?! 😀
Today I am feeling a little under the weather and moody too but I did manage to get out of bed and go to work. After chatting with friends and colleagues and friends at work I kind of feel better.
There will be moody days
There will be days when you are feeling sick.
There will be days when you just wish but your wish is really not ready to show up.
There will be slow days.
Hey, it will be OK again. You will pull through.
Loads of love from me.

I kept admiring this aquarium at the lobby of a hotel I visited recently. I simply had to share it with you.
