    What a fancy website taught me

    Hi hi….​This might turn into a rant but…… After having a deep tête-à-tête with myself, I finally gave into the urge to sign up for a training because…….‘Self-development’. I knew what training I wanted to get done, but did not know which faciliator to enroll with. I clicked on my browser and typed in the keyword on the ever friendly platform ‘google’. Am I the only one who never clicks the second page when google results come up? (let me know in the comment section if you do this too) I just feel if the information I need is not on the first page, then it cannot be the best.…

    On making choices

    ​I walked into my side chic’s salon not being sure how I will be received. I had not been to hers for about seven months and well I had my reason. Ah! Aunty!! Long time…. ‘You just forget me. She said,looking excited. No o..Haba…I no fit…I quickly answered while smiling. Ok. As always, she was happy to see me so I settled in and she started sorting my hair while we continued catching up. In all fairness to side chic, she is good at her job but I only like to use her for braids, ghana weaving and styles that are close to home. She thinks she’s best of both…

    Another resolution story.

      You pick habits from your teen years and they will perhaps just be a phase. You keep at it repeatedly for a while and once it starts to contradict your routine, it goes out the door. As a teenager, it was difficult not to hear people talk about new year resolutions amidst all the Christmas and Newyear celebration. Everyone had a list of things they wanted achieve or become in the new year. At that age, whether you understood what was going on or not, you grab a pen and paper start writing because your Sunday school teacher or class teacher said you should. Coercing me write a list…

    Delay is not Denial

    *Dust cobwebs* I consciously came in here today…and omg…..the post from September 2012 brought me close to tears….. Instead of crying though, i found myself thanking God for his countless favour. That day in September 2012, i was not very happy, i was moody and all because i needed one prayer request to be answered. Even though what i needed did not come until after another year, the fact remains God answered my prayer (not at my time) but at the time he knows is best for me. This actually taught me that waiting for God’s time is really just a test of your faith, patience being the keyword and…
