    Goodbye!

    You’ve tried to fill your void with every girl; Made me feel I’m different and special; You led me on that you want me; Gave me so much comfort that I put you on top. All you did was seek for my attention and appeal to my emotions; And I was naive enough to fall for it; I almost walked on blades to get to you boy; Broke down my walls to allow you. What we had was pretty close but still not love; I thought you needed time and space; But, while I crave to feel you in my heart and on my mind; She lay in your arms…

    Lagos Trip

    7 days after, I feel I can finally write about my trip to Lagos. Traveling has been one thing I usually need serious mental preparation for and this was no exception considering it’s Lagos (I fear the hustling-bustling syndrome of Lagos), I’m used to my serene lifestyle in Ile-Ife and Ibadan (covers face – lol). So I set out for my long break with a start in Lagos from Benin on Monday, pity I picked the wrong day because it rained throughout. After spending about 6 hrs on road, stuck in a crazy traffic that everyone had to alight and walk the rest to the park, my friend told me…

But, one thing I’ve ever gambled on is Myself. My pollyannaish attitude to life always make me believe I can get through any situation or stage I find myself. There is always hope for every new day. Betting on yourself is almost always as a result of Self-confidence. The positive attitude you hold about…

    Dear 20Something,

    After my 10th birthday, my mum got so sick even she was scared of dying. As a child, I couldn’t do much than stay by her sick bed, help her sit up, get her stuffs, cry with her while I assure her she’ll get through (which she eventually did) and I’ll make promises of things I’ll do for her. I begged her one night to please stay with me and my brothers, that, in ten (10) years time, I’ll be old enough to take proper care of her (commonsensically, my 10 year old self summed up 6 years in high school and 4 years in the university and figured I…

    Monday Motivation

    Not everyone can understand you and your potentials. Don’t feel discouraged nor let their negative voices damp your spirit. There is no dream too big to be achieved if you put your mind to it and work diligently for it. Even when you don’t seems to get your desired results, it’s okay to change your plans, tactics but never the goal. Don’t be discouraged by failures, disappointment or the opinions of the small-minded people. Don’t let anyone tear your hopes and dreams down because they can’t see or perceive it like you do. Don’t let anyone mess with your mind so much that you start to lose your confidence and…
