Yes, its International Womens Day! It is nice to have a day set aside for women. We do a lot to make this world go round and have come a very very verrrrry looooong way. Can I just say; the notion that the woman plays second fiddle to the man is as true as the wicked lie that the white race is the most superior in our wold. You woman, living in today’s world; serving in the army, driving a…

Catch yourself! Next time you wonder about why a thing is the way it is… after a person butts in and explains to you why… Before you nod and go ahaa, I see, …..Catch yourself! Turn whatever it is they have just said to you over and over again in your head. Do not just swallow it. Consider it. Question it…ask yourself… Is this what i think too? 3 Idiots is one of my favourite movies (you should see it)… I…

They lied to us…

A former classmate passed away recently and it threw me into a well of thoughts. She was rare! selfless, always with a smile and ready to talk to anyone. Her spirit was free, it was pure and her energy beautiful. I do not think I ever heard her say a negative thing about a person. You know that one in the group that is always the voice of reason whilst everyone else is trying to escalate an issue and calmly…

Been a loooong minute since I wrote here! Life got busy! In the midst of it all I made the final move, and settling in has been a mix of emotions. Oslo has been good to me so far… nothing compares to being where your heart is sooo … muchos grateful 🙂 So far we have had no snow in December and have been to a christmas market at the Norske Folkemuseum. If you have ever wondered what Norwegians lived like…

I am still changing…

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…

Mother in Me…

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…

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…

If you read my journal you will probably notice I write a lot about living…I can’t help it! 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. Have you ever sat with older people and listened to them reminisce about their youth, the good old days…With their eyes gleaming? Sometimes you will notice a sense…
