Do you remember the last time you had to wait for something you really wanted? The eagerness, the anxiety, the pacing around, the heartache, the feelings of doubt… would my time ever come? When will the doctor call my name? When will my name be on the admissions list? When will my bus arrive? When will this traffic start to move? Waiting is not easy. But there’s a way to have peace while waiting.Read more
I was speaking to a friend the other day about personal style. Some of us have consciously or unconsciously curated certain fashion pieces that define our style. It’s easy to identify us with these pieces. However, that wasn’t the issue. The issue was in the confidence to pull off your personal style amidst spectators who would always talk. Any encounter with African aunts and uncles will give you an idea of how this goes. Lol. My friend pointed out that the confidence factor stems from self-acceptance.Read more

Hello, lovely one!
How was your week?
Have you ever had that experience where you’ve committed to doing something, but halfway through it, you get so tired that you wonder why you started out in the first place? Or is it just me. haha.
I almost gave up on being able to complete this challenge after missing out on so many days. But hey, if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that it’s never too late to start again. So here we go! You may need a cup of tea and a plate of biscuits because it might be a long one. Let’s do this!Read more
Day 4 of Gratitude
Welcome to day 4 of our 30 Days of Gratitude challenge.
This month has been full of miracles for me. Things I wanted, I received. Even as tiny as a bow hair ribbon I wished for. I have had several reasons to laugh and to testify! This is so significant because less than a week ago I was crying in my pillow about how lost and stuck I felt. I couldn’t see the light. I just couldn’t. But as I focus on gratitude, my mind is forced to shift from what hasn’t been working to what is working. I have a million miracles to thank God for! And I’m sure if you look closer, you will see that life isn’t that bad. Let’s get to today’s prompt!Read more
Day 2 of Gratitude
Hello, lovely one!
How was your day? I’m glad you could join me on this 30 Days of Gratitude challenge. There’s something wonderful about the way gratitude shifts our focus from what’s not working in our lives to what is working. It reminds us that even though we aren’t where we wanted to be, we realize things could be worse; but they aren’t. We are still alive and with internet access for you to read this post. When you really look, you’ll find that there are many things to be grateful for.
So, let’s keep looking for those reasons.Read more
30 Days of Gratitude
Happy New Month!
Wow! It’s already the third month of 2023! It feels very fast and slow at the same time. Like so many things are happening in such a little time. Whew! This can be overwhelming. Or maybe you’re experiencing more of the feeling that time is going but nothing seems to be happening for/to you. I understand that all too well.
