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 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…

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…

A few days ago I felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude for my challenges…my situations. If you are human you will know this is not an easy thing to do because life’s challenges can be tough! At the same time one does not need to look too far to find a person going through a worse off situation. It’s my birthday this month and with that comes a whole lot of reflection! (Where have my twenties gone? almost over now…

My Affair with ben

Started a little creative writing experiment circa 2014/2015 called MyAffairWithBen Came up with this idea to write a blog about a lady who had an affair with a guy called Ben who himself was in a relationship. I also passed on the impression to my readers if i had any that the lady herself was writing the blog as recommended to her by her therapist. Was a bit embarrassed to share it but i really enjoyed writing. As usual I lacked…

I like to think that I am divergent….Can’t be confined to a box, category or stereotype. Can’t be described as anything but me… My interests vary, I am very much an introvert but can throw that away in a second and be the life of a party once i choose to (I think so 😀 )…So I am an ambivert right? Nah don’t think so…. I am a conscious Black African, I am awake and know what it means to…

Brought out my camera to play a bit last week…(Think I’m going to being doing a lot of that over christmas…) Can you tell what is going on in my mind in each picture? I’ve often heard my face is over-expressive, so i tried to express and capture some of what I think ‘they’ mean in these pictures with Olympus… <3       I have to agree with ‘them’ that with me its all in the face!!!…Can’t help it, I can…
