FINDING THE BALANCE: THE OLD AND THE NEW!

Life appears seemingly new everyday because the world is in a constant state of flux. Change is what reminds us that nothing lasts forever and life has a sure way of enforcing that reminder. Permanence is merely a concept that exists vaguely in our minds. Nothing real is absolute. All events, past, present or future…

THE LIES WE TELL…

The truths define us; they are the mirrors to our future, the reflections of our pasts and the reminders of the present… If lies have become a general rule, let’s begin yo make the truths the golden rule.

BE WISE YET FOOLISH.

Please permit me to explain this accordingly before you judge this post. The greatest asset in a man’s world is wisdom, this I cannot overemphasize. In fact, the best way a man receives wealth is the application of what he has learnt (wisdom). So wisdom can bring power, money, influence and affluence. Still, in acquiring…

LETTING GO!

There is a fine line between denial and hope. To be in denial means you choose to deny the present reality as a way to avoid a psychologically uncomfortable truth. For instance, in relationships, people with abusive or manipulative partners someday ‘hope’ for a change, albeit denying the reality of the situation they’ve found themselves…

SINGLE PARENTS ARE NOT THE ENEMIES!

One major deafening silent societal issue is the perceived disregard for individuals who are Single Parents, especially women.

I have been so eager to figure out life lately. I remember sometime last year, I got so worked up. I wanted to not only find out my own path to success but also look for the shortest way to get there. The result is exactly what you’re thinking right now, FUTILE. I’ll tell you…

ROW YOUR BOAT!

“Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream…” I remember singing that song as a child. In fact, I still do. We all are at this sea called ‘Life’. A sea always filled with storms and tempest, together with floating ships being steered by different sailors. We know that when a ship is about…

BORN (Cont’d)

CHAPTER 9 We returned to the hospital. I was tired of coming here. I wanted to let my parents know that I didn’t appreciate visiting the hospital often. I wondered why we were here again. This was our third time of visiting the hospital in one week. I suddenly had this fear. My mother was…

5 THINGS I’D LIKE TO DO BEFORE 30.

Tick Clock! Tick! Tick! Honestly, I have about 4 years, 3 months and 3 weeks to accomplish all. So here’s a list of the things I pray and hope to do before the big ‘3 and 0’. 1). To have a clear definition of who I have been made to be. I believe I’m gradually…
