Faith over Fear

Do not do it, you are too inexperienced. Don’t do it, you’re too young. Don’t do it, you’re too old. Don’t do it, you’re going to fail.

There are many things in life that tell us not to try or hope. They always have the statistics of how odds are stacked against us. …

Faithful with Little

Do you ever feel like what you have is not enough? Not enough money, friends, opportunities, community, possessions and the list goes on and on.

I find it a bit hard to write about this because it requires making a confession. You see, of late I’ve been feeling like all I have is not enough. Many times I have found myself asking for more in prayer.…

5 Ways to be More Productive

Have you ever taken time to figure out how much you are or aren’t able to do in a month, a week or a day?

For a long time, I had general goals that I wanted to accomplish. I had long term timelines that weren’t broken down into short term deadlines. The problem with this was that I still ended up accomplishing much but not as much as I had the capacity or desire to.…

Looking Back to Move Forward

Are there times you have gone through something so painful that you would prefer to erase it from your memory? I know I have! In fact, I remember how often I used to watch Mexican Telenovelas (or soap operas) and 99% of the time someone had to get partial amnesia. When I thought of remembering some of those painful moments, I’d wonder why I couldn’t wield this Telenovela-magic called selective amnesia.…

We Have Moved!

Surprise!!!!!

Guess who moved? We did!

Happy dance

Remember I hinted at migrating in this post?

Welcome to my new home. Welcome! The doors are open so you can walk in at your pace. There’s plenty of room and seats to go around. Grab a chair, couch, futon, beanbag, whatever you are comfortable with. Do you want tea, coffee, water or fresh juice?…

Microwave Mug Cake

I love cake so much; proper cake: a symphony of ingredients, moist and often with fresh cream. I’m not a fan of cupcakes though, unless they are baked to perfection. I consider them glorified muffins….but that is a story for another day.

I’ve had too many horrible pastry experiences to learn that I cannot just get cake from anywhere. I have specific ‘joints’ I buy cake from.…

Beginner’s Lessons From The Gym

I like to learn from my surroundings and everything that happens. It’s a thing I learnt from my mom. I remember we used to watch Mexican Soap Operas or Nigerian movies and she would later be explaining how a specific scene reminded her about a certain scripture in the bible. I would often sit there thinking,” What? I thought this was just entertainment?”…

Nothing New

After last week’s post, it hit me that there is nothing new under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9&10,  1st Corinthians 10:13)

There I was, sitting at my desk, clucking away at the keyboard, pouring my heart out and letting my mind periodically jump in as I shared part of what made me go on hiatus from the blog for a few months.…

Abandoning the Pursuit for Perfection

I had no clever title for this post.

I have been away from this blog for a while. I don’t have an excuse for that. The truth is that, I end up taking more sabbaticals than I should because I desire perfection. I rarely admit it and even more rarely try to hide it. I may drop the ball on some things often, but I always get the backlash from my mind immediately after.…

There’s Much to say about Womanhood

Yesterday was International Women’s Day in some time zones. For some, it is today. Either way, Happy International Women’s Day to all the ladies!

There is so much to say about women. We have been discriminated against, seen as lesser people, treated as objects and merchandise, abused, stereotyped and limited. This is not news to anybody. We have often fought to change misconceptions and to take a prominent place in society.…
