    Pulse for February 2018

    Is 2018 going by really fast or what? As much as January really took it’s time, February is here and I am grateful as always. The last time I wrote a ‘Pulse for a month’ post was in August 2017. Staying off writing my goals was not intentional but if you have been a reader for a while then you probably have an idea why I stopped. From August last year, I got a whole new experience of what planning means and also had to learn how to handle your emotions when life interrupts your plans. At the moment, I feel like things are gradually getting back to normal and…

    6 Life Lessons you should never forget.

    08.11.17 Your Hands…. Definitely the first male hands that held me. It’s difficult to accept you will not be able to hold me (physically) through other milestones, but i am glad we made beautiful memories together. Sleep well Daddy. Forever in my Heart. Daddy was laid to rest four days ago and it was all shades of emotional. Three months ago, I thought writing a tribute and biography was hard but having to read it to the audience was even harder. Can any other event get more emotional? Listening to family, his friends and colleagues talk about their relationship with him while he was physically present on earth was nerve…

    A Mother's Love

    Isn’t is awesome that we have celebrated women 3 times already this year? We cannot just have enough days to appreciate Mother’s. Like glue they stick when you are blue. Like the moon they illuminate in the dark. While we celebrate today, my thought and prayers goes out to anyone who lost their mum in one way or the other, i pray for strength to every striving single mum and women taking up the role as guardians to the orphans. It is never easy even with the support of the man. This is why we must appreciate every female playing the Mother role as well. For Mother’s day, i have…

    Loud thoughts about Love

    ​​​​​​​​​​Phaytea’s Pulse is participating in the #AtoZChallenge for 2017. The Theme is ‘Awakening of Self’ and ‘Loud thoughts about Love’ is our entry for letter L. The theme focuses on character traits that will gear us towards Meaningful Living and will run for 26 days in April except sundays. Please stop by the blog everyday for subsequent posts as we read the 26 letters of the alphabet together. Enjoy!!☺☺ I love love…….. It is (one of) the most experienced type of emotion. However, we have different unique experiences about love. So instead of writing how to’s and don’ts, I decided on writing loud thoughts that come up regarding love. Or…

    Much ado about Valentine's Day

    When driving or walking on a street and all you see are nicely dressed or most of the time tackily dressed mannequins in blood red or shades of red, it confirms two things: 1. You are most likely in Lagos, Nigeria (if not, does this happen where you are?). 2. Its February and Valentine’s Day is around the corner. I commend stores that actually make an effort to style a mannequin properly (it is usually a beautiful sight and almost a determinant to go into the store) but then there are some that make your eyes bleed from all the red you are forced to see. Apparently, Red is the…
