Now this is a different post, it’s real time and it gives you a glimpse into what my daily life kinda looks like. So here we go! 🕺🏼🕺🏼 Continue reading “Currently I am…”

Another Liebster Award

Happy weekend guys!

How’s the first weekend in November looking? Remember to take some time to just rest.

liebster-2I got nominated for the Liebster award a while back by my blogger-friends Courtney from 1 Timothy 4:12 Girl and Emily from Fearfully Wonderfully Me. These girls have helped my blog in so many ways. They are devout Christians who are unashamed to preach the word. And hey, Emily is amazing with fashion and Courtney is also a great fiction writer. Please check their blogs out. You’d never regret it! 😀 Thank you guys for this award. It’s absolutely humbling! I’m grateful to God for this privilege! Continue reading “Another Liebster Award”

Truth Series: Finding Myself

Thanks to my Blogger friend, Blessing from Blessing Shares, I’ll be running a truth series every Wednesday (reblog from her blog) and Friday (my own post) of October. Basically the concept behind this is to share heartfelt posts with a lot of emotions that we probably would never have published on the blog. 😉

Please join us through this series as it promises to be exciting!

*****

I’ve set out a couple of times on a journey to find myself. To dig into my soul and answer the never-ending questions of ‘Who I am?’ ‘Why am I here?’ ‘Why me?’ Believe me, it never stops! You may find the answer at the beginning of the year but mid-way, you totally forget who you really are. Or someone asks you and you start fumbling for words.

I think self-finding is a never-ending quest. Because as you grow, you begin to learn new things about yourself. Things you detested may even become your favourite things. You begin to build capacity in areas where you lacked and so on.  Continue reading “Truth Series: Finding Myself”

Blogger Recognition Award

Hi guys!

I have been behind on the award front and I finally had to pull myself from the ‘Post-challenge stress’ After writing through April, my fingers have felt a little stiff lately. Anywho, write I must and write I shall! 😀

Thank you TJ from Studiotj for this nomination. You remain a breath of fresh air! I love your blog and you guys should totally check it out for that little positive spin you need! 😀

The Rules:

  • Write a post to show your award.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to.

I’ve always loved writing and it just made sense to own a blog. Got inactive for some two years and finally got serious in 2014. It progressed from random rambles to a purposeful blog and it keeps getting better! 😀

Advice One:

Stay true to yourself. Just keep being you. Write all you can and about anything you want. For the likes and follows, they will come. Just keep being you.

Two:

Keep friendships with bloggers beyond the ‘blogosphere’. This year has been exciting for me because I’ve been chatting with some bloggers outside the blogosphere and it’s so amazing! Beyond writing, making friends is a huge plus for me! So yes, I advise you to do same.

And the nominees are:

1 Timothy412 Girl

Diary of a Blueblood

GraysBibi Blog

Adaugo’s Diary

Fearfully Wonderfully Me

Crystal Walls

Concealed Foundation

Official Nnamdi blog

Forever Aspiring Writer

Poems

Hi guys!

It’s day errr…I’ve lost count. The letter however is P for Poems. 😉

PI read this really lovely, thought provoking poem by Nikkita Robert and I thought to share. To visit her blog, please click here. She’s got mind blowing poems, you’ll thank me later 🙂

Sometimes

Sometimes, it is better to leave 
than stick around. 
If we’re honest 
sometimes being the one who held out 
the longest isn’t a worthy crown. 
And sometimes, 
know when the game’s up 
and when the referee calls the end. 
Sometimes, know when to walk away, 
keep your head held high 
and don’t even say goodbye! 

© 2016 Nikkita Robert 

This poem had me pondering for days. The lines are full of depth! I just couldn’t help sharing! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! Thanks again Nikkita!

Quick reminder! 

Please if you have any questions to ask me, kindly drop them in the comment section or send a mail to contact@daintym.com. I would really appreciate this as it would help in tomorrow’s post 😀 Feel free to ask anything and I’ll do my best to answer them! Brace yourself! Thanks!

Lots of love,
