Oslo has been good to me so far… nothing compares to being where your heart is sooo … muchos grateful ūüôā So far we have had no snow in December and have been to a christmas market at the Norske Folkemuseum.

I am not the same person I was 5 years ago. I have changed a whole lot. Life¬†and what I have experienced in 5 years have changed me. Is there a choice at the root of¬†change…absolute yes! Things happen that cause us to give life a different look.¬†We pause, review, we learn new things about life, our journey and discover things about ourselves. To move on from where we are, we have to make¬†a choice to stay the same people…

I am starting to¬†hear my mother in me…I cannot believe it! Growing up¬†we saw nothing the same way, I still wonder what planet she comes from. Shockingly now I am slowly beginning to see many things about life through her eyes. Slowly understanding that she was once a girl and young woman like me… To her family is everything, she always says to me in Idanre; ‘True friendship does not exist, the faster you accept¬†this the better’.¬†I disagreed with her…

Comfort zones are tricky…Half of the time we do not realise the reason we are not moving ahead is simply cause we have gotten comfortable! We all have dreams and aspirations and we are told to go for them, not to give up when things get tough…to keep trying and soon our dreams will come true and boy do things get tough! Some of them out of our control. Before facing challenges that are out of our control we usually…

The thing is it feels like I found this secret I need to tell everyone about… it’s really simple – Life is a short journey!- Don’t fall into the trick of thinking it is long.

The hustle is real, it always has been…We finish or drop out of school and get on that paper chase because that is the way the system works… You need money to live ‘your dreams’. At least that’s what we are told in school, by our parents or guardians…by our friends, colleagues, in TV commercials, on the news..You need to work to live. The thing is though we all get caught up in the paper chase and kinda forget to…

Why won’t we just let ourselves be? This is one thing that bugs me the most about human nature. I am guilty of it sometimes! Once I notice someone’s not conforming to my idea of how they should be…I struggle a little… I get upset at why they cannot see things the way I see them or why their lifestyle choices or lifestyle in general is not aligned with what I think to be ideal! I confess I am guilty…
