You are worthy

You are a person of worth,

Yes, you!

Right here, right now,

Even in those sweatpants,

And even without make up.

Your worth doesn’t lie in whether or not you have a job,

Whether or not you have money,

Whether or not you’ve found your soulmate,

Whether or not you’re smashing your goals.

You’re worthy;

Because you were created for a purpose,

With or without the strappings of life,

You remain a person of worth.

Just wanted to you remind you!

Figuring Out Life in Your Twenties

All our lives we’ve had the help of our parents in mapping out our life plans- nursery school, then primary school, then university. It’s as if they only planned to be with us for so long. And I get it. By twenty-something, you’re ‘supposed’ to be an adult, probably even married and beginning that entire lifecycle for someone else (a.k.a your kids). But not me. Well, not yet. I’m a twenty-something year old who constantly asks myself, ‘WTF am I supposed to be doing in life?’ If you’re like me, then this post is for you. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!

“You didn’t just mess up, you are messed up!”

That was the line I heard from a stage play some months back titled ‘NightFood’ as written by Kelvinmary. It was the story of a disabled man and his wife who were torn at the loss of their child. The story went on to show that both of them had committed adultery the same night the child had a convulsion and died. The man was in the next room with his side chic, while the wife was away on a journey with another man. Continue reading “Messed Up!”

NEW: Web of Lies Series

Today’s question: “Does discrimination still exist in the workplace based on the color of one’s skin, gender, schools attended, and even age?”

It’s almost a straight-cut yes! But there’s more to this. There’s a web of lies underpinning our attitudes and behaviors towards people in the workplace. I’ll be covering this on the blog! (Stay tuned!).Today is the International Day of the Girl Child so we’ll be looking at sexism in the workplace. Continue reading “NEW: Web of Lies Series”

Change Your Perspective

Someone once said “geography is destiny”. And I think that to be true to some extent (not ignoring other factors that come to play in shaping destinies). Where we’re from, our parents etc. all help in pointing us to what we’d become. I’m proud to be a Nigerian. Even though currently, the national image keeps plummeting faster than I can blink. Nigerians are now identified for more negative things in the international system. People constantly want to migrate to seek greener pastures because the system is pretty much broken. Here’s what I think, it all comes down to our perspectives. How do we see things? Continue reading “Change Your Perspective”
