Believe In Your Work

Someone once told me that I write rubbish and he made me feel like I should never call myself a writer but he could still use my articles on his platforms (and gave me no credit). Not a single word omitted or added.     Someone once told me that I don’t know how to…

Just A Mistake

There was a time I had shortage at my former place of work and that was my first time of making mistake after being a consistent ‘key babe’. I was quick to forget my good performance so far and dwelt on the shortage. It affected me emotionally and my countenance changes. And then, one morning…

I am a woman; not a subject for abuse

Photo credit : F9Vision When a lady visits a male friend and was raped, you will ask of what she was looking for, why did she go.  If she was raped in her house, you will say ‘why did you wear a dress that is revealing?’ or ‘why did you allow him into your apartment?’…

The Flash

There is something about ‘The Flash’ that makes me watch each episode over and over again. Just in case you don’t know anything about ‘The Flash’ , it is an American television series. It is about a young man who watched his mother die and his father accused wrongly for the murder when he was…

Grief

I woke up one Thursday morning to a call from a distant relative, someone who rarely calls. And when she asked when I was coming home, I told her that my dad told me to come home later that day (my father was the last person I spoke with the day before). After the call,…

Your Signature 

Signature; who you are and what people see you as. When I was working as an associate staff with one of Nigeria’s commercial bank, a customer presented a withdrawal slip and I gave it back to him to verify that everything on the slip is correct. And as you know a lot of people like…

Confidence 

Many would have gone farther than where they are now but for confidence. Believing in yourself, standing firm is very important.  I was at rehearsal last week for a very important ministration and our music director needed someone to lead the song. And we were over 400 people so he had to do audition for…

Dealing with the past

Has it ever happened that you are surprised at the way you reacted to a situation? For example, I bought something from a friend and I paid her immediately and after a week, she asked for the money and I got angry and raised my voice and I told her not to try it again….

Moving forward

One of the ways to move forward is to revisit the events/situations from the past that is holding you back and deal with it head on, no matter how scary they may be.  If you need to analyze the situation, if you need to talk to someone, do what you have to do. If you…

A little sleep, A little slumber

I got this from the bible and somehow it has become one of my favourite bible verses. ‘How long will thou sleep O sluggard? When will thou arise out thy sleep? Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding hands to sleep’ Proverb 6:9 – 10 So it is true that we are not…

Be Happy!

Have you ever been afraid of something before and you don’t know what that thing is or even know if that thing really exist. For the past few month, i’ve heard news of old classmates death and I shiver. You see there was a time in my life that i was not afraid of death…

Stop The Blame Game

​​This world is for fighters, real fighters! You have to move far away from your comfort zone and fight. You need to be able to fight to sustain yourself and succeed in this world. Nobody is interested in your story unless you are successful.  Anytime I hear some people say things like ‘my father is…
