New Beginings

After much procrastination and fear, I finally took the plunge and launched my blog. I have always loved writing but it felt so personal to put myself out there through my words. I know this is one of my talent (still trying to discover a new one). I always thought, maybe am too serious, maybe am not interesting enough but I think God saw differently because I have been having the leading to resume; as much as I try to ignore it and think up excuses. So this me leaping in head first and raising my glass of water to new […]

Saving the sorry in a bucket for others alone...?

Saving the Sorry/Thank You in a Bucket For Others Alone…?

Daughter1: Mummy, I hit my leg… Me: sorry   Daughter2: Mummy, I hit my hand… Me: sorry   These and many more are per second complaints from the girls. All these complaint for sorry… say sorry and the issue ends. I noticed even Samuel waits for sorry when something happens… if it comes, no tears but if it doesn’t…   I have been teaching them on complimenting, appreciating others and complimenting/appreciating themselves. I told them not to expect it but acknowledge it when given. I also told them they should not only do things because they will be reward for […]

building out of the box thinkers start with a question

Building Out Of The Box Thinkers Starts with A Question

I am learning a lot of things through my children, while I make mistakes as I go along. I am grateful for the wisdom and time for course correction.   One trait which I have noticed in myself and a lot of people is giving up in the face of seeming obstacle. It almost seems like a default of sort. except for the few who deliberately take steps to resist the comfort of not settling or giving up. It’s a fight we must fight daily with ourselves.   It’s tiring and exhausting but the rewards are endless. watching my children […]

the extra step required for excellence

The Extra Step Required for Excellence

There is a lane called pedestrian walk way which is accessible to every foot step. It leads to everywhere and sometimes no where. Then there is a hidden lane called ‘The Extra’ walk way. Only those who look for it find it. it requires patience and lots of work and self-discipline. It leads to excellence. Let’s see how Mr. Olumese Okooboh tells the story of his extra step to excellence… Enjoy… …the sun was scorching as was typical of Zungeru, Niger State. The trucks which conveyed workers back to site were already blaring their horns loudly the break was over! […]

Making Puffs on a Roll (Snacks Attack)

While organizing the Writers Meet in February… I thought of making snacks myself for the event, but discarded the idea. I opted for paying someone to do the job which will save time and energy for other things . I began asking around and comparing prices that was when I discovered Destiny Snacks.   Tucked in a little corner, about a walking distance from my office sat the little shop. close to the State Government House and Kasuwa hotel. I pass the route sometimes but I never knew what goes on there because it was usually empty.   When my […]

what do you have in storage?

What Do You Have in Storage?

Three separate incidents taught me the importance of brain/memory storage and mind reserve…   I hate making moi-moi because I detest washing beans. but above the hate, I love eating moi-moi and so do my husband and children. While cleaning my store last week. I came across my abandoned containers for making moi-moi. Oh! So this is where I kept you. I thought as I went about my duties.   Today, I had a craving for moi-moi today. and someone is available to help with washing the beans. I didn’t have to think much on the containers because I know […]

A healthy sense of dissatisfaction

A Healthy Sense of Dissatisfaction…

Do you know of the type B education? Some of us are looking for ‘it’ but can hardly articulate what ‘it’ is. My interviewee calls it a healthy sense of dissatisfaction. According to him, only type B education can cure it The way these interviews are exposing me to people and things. that give me answers to questions I never knew I was asking… their answers are infusing life into my spirit. Did you know there are different types of poverty? Do you also know the reason you are still in the same position year after year? Could be you are […]

OVERSIZE CHANDELIER

This poem is a summary of life as a married woman before and after babies… who can relate?   Fresh from the altar Swinging from the chandelier in my pantyhose and corset Wrapped around the bed pole like a sexy nymph I taunted my beloved with pleasures of the flesh   Fresh from the hospital Swinging a newborn The silk gave way to cotton panties The big mummy ones I am now a mummy, Solving the myth of the mummy ones They are so comfy you know   I aired out the silky ones Trying to act all raunchy for […]

Couple synergy and growth

Couples Synergy and Growth

My expedition took me to a couple with synergy. They took themselves along in their decision-making. and were able to trust the decisions of the other even if they were not sure of the outcomes.   This couple showed a true example of courage and faith. Because it is easier making decisions when the outcome affect only you. When children and other dependents are involved… you are at risk of being labelled stupid. But you know what is said about using the stupid things of the world to confound the wise…   Let me know what you think Enjoy   […]

Brains and exercises

Brains and Exercises

While going through Genesis 2. I noticed there were no grains sprouting up across the earth at first. nor was there anyone to farm the soil. However water welled up from the ground at certain places and flowed across the land. My life can look like there is nothing showing physically. it may look like I am an abandoned project like the seemingly barren and empty earth at creation. Someone asks, “what is your talent?” and your reply is “I do not know.” I once heard someone say… “I do not think God gave me any gift.” some people when […]
