    My Anti-Baby Pills

    Well, took a while for me to gather the courage and will to write but I pushed through. I wish I have something to say about pills but not today and I know you probably opened this post because you’re interested in knowing about my Anti-Baby Pills (which by the way is a phrase I find amusing when my language lecturer told us that is the German way of calling Contraceptives – Quite mean). So, we are definitely not talking about my pills or baby plans but why I’ve been off the grid for so long, 2019 in summary and the other stuff. 2019 has been nothing short of amazing.…

    On Failing Forward ii

    Hi everyone, trust you’ve been doing great? This is the second part of my last post about “Failure” and how our perspective about it can change everything. Amongst the many times I’ve failed at something, failing ZOO101 in my year one stuck with me more because not only was my intelligence questioned but my tenacity too. Being a model-child with academic excellence, I was shocked when I failed a course in my first semester in the university.

    Monday Motivation – Self Care

    Muse: @ciara CIARA recently released a new studio album – BEAUTY MARKS and this post is not about her, at least not directly, but, it is inspired by one of my favorite tracks on the album that she featured MACKLEMORE on, “I Love Myself”. You obviously can’t give what you don’t possess, you’ve got to give yourself some good loving. One of the hacks to adulting that I’m learning on daily is “Self Care“. I found out that emotional and physical well-being depends on how much you can balance between giving and receiving which sometimes, the receiving can also come from you. Paying closer attention to your body and your…

    From Heart to the Lips

    I am a big fan of “Words of Affirmation“, and I believe in the “Law of Attraction“ that you attract what you think and speak on, hence, I’ve put this to practice many times and seen it work. Even the scripture says, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he” (paraphrased). Affirmations are positive statements that describe a desired situation, these statements are usually repeated many times to influence the subconscious mind to do positive action and it usually just keep your energy and confidence high throughout the day. But, affirmation is deeper than mere repetition of words. There is need for an indepth understanding of the underlying…
