    My Glimpse Into Motherhood : Mother’s Day, 2019

    Muse: MY MUM & I ❀ It’s Mother’s day and for the past one week I’ve been wrapping my head around Motherhood – partly because of my discussions with the expecting mothers around me. I wouldn’t say I have a full knowledge of what motherhood entails (I’m not even married nor ever pregnant) but, co-raising my siblings with my Mum is probably my most fulfilling role yet. Watching them on the path of becoming and blooming to be all my mum and I and the yard people (In Yoruba land, raising a child is a community projectπŸ˜πŸ˜‚) taught them is surreal, seeing their feats gives me an overwhelming joy. My…

    Known Avoided Facts

    Muse: C.E.O. @0704_apparel Not a typical long post. . . #TGIF! But I’ll like to run through some blunt facts we avoid as humans because they don’t usually sound like what we want to hear, but, they hold the key to inner peace and happiness. ‘Feeling good about life’ is just at the other end of being convinced about these thoughts; 1. Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself, to be free. If you can’t do it for the person, do it for yourself. 2. Everything you will ever need is innate in you, you’re not missing/lacking anything. 3. The past and the future don’t exist anywhere except in your…

    Mirror Mirror

    Muse – @__amazing_glam (IG) Though the week is almost over, the truth is I’ve been tired and overwhelmed since its 3rd day (well, we all have weeks like this). People usually just wait for holidays or weekends for self reflection, to stare back into the mirror and check themselves out (figuratively). In my opinion though, self reflection is of utmost importance during the middle of a busy week or the middle of a particular time frame, when you can take into account how far you’ve come and what needs to be changed or worked on during the remaining time. “The true purpose of self-reflection is to correct our mistaken thoughts…

    GrownUp Decisions

    Earlier last week, I had a conversation with one of my girlfriends and it was about how she’s having a hard time making some real grownup decisions. How she’s not so sure about what to do or how to act. What to say. The effects of the past and present choices. . . Honestly, when we had the conversation, I was in a very good place to talk to her. It felt like I know just the exact thing to say to her. At that moment, I was almost sure of what I want for myself and even the ones I wasn’t sure of, I was at a place of…

    The Girl In The Mirror

    I slept yesternight thinking hard about who I am And that same question has been my Achilles’s heel for too long. It has been my weakness that whenever I think of who I am I always feel tremor from my stomach to my bone marrow. When I woke up this morning I was different from the girl of last night. Something has changed about me Did I have a dream again? I can’t remember But I felt the change so I picked up my mirror. And there in it I saw the answer to all my fears. The mirror made me see the reflection of who I am. I am…
