Hi there! I'm a Blogger and a Digital Marketer. I'm tickled about creating content. I love music that puts me in a reflective mood. Plantain is bae. I'll like to one day overcome my fear of height by jumping off a plane. I love building relationships. This blog is where I have fun creating content that inspire lives. Stick around...

⁣
Simply Grateful. ⁣
Calm.⁣
Hopeful.⁣
Progressing.⁣
And every other thing that comes in between that might not be so pleasant.⁣
⁣
How are you doing? ⁣
Like how are you really doing?⁣

  • •I Have Nothing To Prove•⁣
⁣
Have you ever wondered why someone you like is so fond of a particular person and you also want the same kind of attention?⁣
Then you try to position yourself in a particular way hoping you’ll get recognized. 😃⁣
⁣
“You don’t need to prove you are strong to anyone...” ⁣
My friend got this from someone yesterday and this rings true for a lot of other things in your life.⁣
⁣
You need to pause and ask yourself, “Why do I do the things I do?”⁣
Am I doing this for me? Or I just want to impress someone or some people?⁣
⁣
Newsflash, NO ONE primarily cares about you except God and Yourself. Every other care is secondary. No one can love you more than they love themselves. ⁣
⁣
Quit showing up because you just want to be noticed.⁣
Quit doing because you want to look active. ⁣
Quit trying because you want to be acknowledged for your efforts. ⁣
Quit acting because you want people to have a perception. ⁣
Quit faking strength because you don’t want to look weak. ⁣
Just be yourself.⁣
People would always see you based on their personal filter and biases. ⁣
⁣
I have nothing to prove to anyone and I wouldn’t live my life trying to be what I am not. My Dad would always say, “You can’t deceive anyone but yourself.” You become the greatest fool when you’re trying to fool everyone. ⁣
⁣
There’s a disease that no one can cure for you, it’s called the ‘Self inflicted disease’. When you become your own problem. ⁣
⁣
Stop living by standards you don’t even understand. ⁣
If there’s any gift you want to give yourself while you’re here on earth, it’s the gift of being completely sincere with yourself. ⁣
⁣
My Pastor said something profound yesterday, “God has nothing to prove to you...” ⁣
God is not keeping me alive just because he wants me to love him. He is God whether the world believes Him or not. ⁣
⁣
You get the point? ⁣
You have absolutely nothing to prove to anyone because you won’t be able to. Period.⁣

  • •Reflections•⁣
⁣
Three years ago when this picture was taken;⁣
I had awesome plans⁣
I was happy⁣
I had great support systems ⁣
I was also clueless about today.⁣
⁣
Right now, I can still say the same. Only that I’m clueless about tomorrow. ⁣
Sometimes, it’s easy to make plans and get all caught up about the future. With expectations and dreams but no one knows tomorrow. No, it’s not cliche. We spend so much time getting overwhelmed by tomorrow that we forget today. ⁣
That today would birth tomorrow.⁣
Choices. People. Life. would change so many things. ⁣
⁣
The awesome plans I had then has changed. I’m happy in a different way but still happy. My support systems have improved and changed in the course of these years.⁣
⁣
One of my favorite songs of all time is ‘One Day at A Time’ by Cristy Lane.⁣
⁣
⁣
“One day at a time Sweet Jesus is all I’m asking of you, just give me the strength to do everyday what I am to do...”⁣
⁣
I’m focused on today. And I know it would be enough for tomorrow. ⁣

In March, I started a series #SheTellsHerStory which featured 13 beautiful young women and their stories. It was a huge privilege having this women share their stories with me. It was enlightening and refreshing! THANK YOU to you all.⁣
⁣
Thank you to everyone who followed the series, commented, liked and shared the posts. You’re awesome 😎 ⁣

Like these women, I have my story and I do my best to share them here bit by bit. ⁣

As April begins, I can only pray that this second quarter is greater than the first quarter. A blessing to you and yours. ⁣

Happy New Month and Welcome to April!⁣ #Shetellsherstory #Herstory #ThankYou #Newseason #newbeginning #Aprilfeelings #Happynewmonth #WelcomeApril

“Will you keep quiet, you talk too much.” My mum said.⁣
⁣
Growing up as a child, I was under a lot of pressure being the first born from a very very poor home. Had to comfort my siblings and listen to them rant and cry all day, either from hunger, or personal issues.⁣
⁣
My parents did their very best to make sure we went to the best of schools, so they sold stuff and worked hard.⁣
⁣
I was always in the middle of everything. Because we had no money and they had to work hard they would always nag and beat and abuse and all. ⁣
⁣
I beared it all, most times I was beaten because of my siblings. ⁣
⁣
I grew up abused, emotionally, verbally, sexually and every way.⁣
⁣
Don’t forget I still had no one to talk to or look up to. ⁣
⁣
I fell in love while I was in uni and that was another story of pain and rejection. So practically most part of my life has been filled with hurt and pain.⁣
⁣
But I soon realized that all that shaped me into who I became today. The good, the bad, the ugly, I grew up so fast and I became responsible from the day my immediate younger sister was born.⁣
⁣
The rejection thought me to be strong for me.⁣
The poverty helped me to feel the need of others, that birthed the stellar initiative ⁣
The lack of support system taught me to rely on God. ⁣
⁣
Every pain and lesson in your life will definitely teach you something.⁣
⁣
Don't ignore the pain or your past. Turn it around to beautify your life, pain in itself is ugly, messy and hurtful but once you come out of it. It beautifies you. Most times it beautifies your bank account.😂⁣
⁣
Pain is Gold.

It was all good and rosy.⁣
Whenever I asked for anything, I got it at the right time. I didn't know what owing a school fees looked like all through my primary and secondary school years.⁣
I can say we had enough, at least, my parents gave us all that we needed to do life. Dad and Mum poured their life to make sure we lacked nothing.⁣
Until everything changed one day, and it all started from there.⁣
⁣
I was resuming University and reality had its way, I began to see clearly that things had changed badly. Somehow, God showed up for me, but at this time, it dawned on me that it was only with God I would be able to finish school.⁣
⁣
My University days were a bit tough, but no one would have thought so. I had opportunities to do things that would not please my creator, but I made a resolution to push while I carry on with God's strength. ⁣
⁣
I didn't know how to carry my problems on my face, so many assumed I was fine and well doing. My third year was hell, filled with funny suicidal thoughts, but I'm grateful for the gift of fellowship and people. ⁣
⁣
As you read this, I will be graduating in few days and reflecting on so many situations made me realise God never leaves His own. I really trusted God, on days I had to go to bed without eating and will still look all cheerful to class, the days I was almost missing payments deadline, but God came through with abundance. ⁣
⁣
If you are reading this, I want you know Trusting and leaning on God will NEVER yield a bad result. God showed me recently that things had to shift a bit, so I could accept that truly He is sufficient.
