Passport….stressful.

The queue is rather  long

Oh no! not again

Will I ever be able to get one today?

The almighty Passport

With so much stress attached

So many officials “illegal”

waiting to get a cut from distress citizen

After much ado, the long process is over

Now I have my passport

Andrea got to check out

To find a greener pasture

Though they say, the land is green here

I got to find a greener option

With my PASSPORT.

Simple dimple Smile.

via Daily Prompt: Simple

Simple, Dimple

Mingle, jingle

Turn the world around

with that sway

A simple smile

reveals that innocent dimple

by the corner of her face,

Her voice sonorously rings

through the jingles piercing  the airwaves

Now there she is ready to mingle

with the rest of us

On this simple plain

like all of us,

Her name is “Simple”

Ready to mingle.

Discover Challenge: Songs from my heart.

via Discover Challenge: Song.

Song my favorite word. Singing has become second nature to me, The feeling that overwhelms me when I take the microphone and stand on the stage, truly I was born for this.  Music found me,and lyrical expression was embedded in my loins, such that even in my sleep ,I am singing a song.

Different songs resonate with me at a different season. lately, I was having difficulties coping with major disappointment,because of the setback, I found that I was emitting negative energy,I didn’t want that.

I just found myself going back to a song I have just written and recorded like a dummy recording, Listening to that song over and over again melted my heart,and reaffirms the Father’s love for me [God].  Even when it seems I am facing a disappointment , I am never alone,my father’s love overwhelms me, helping to see things in the right perspective and helping me realise that there is always a way out. Now that’s the power of a song.

The great Reggae music legend, Bob Marley had this to say about music and song,

One good thing about music,when it hits you, you feel no pain.

Many times in life we face situations pleasant and unpleasant, we are faced with challenges that almost want to snuff life out of us , but as soon a you hear a song that resonates with you, it emits a beautiful feeling and you almost forget what you are going through.

Songs and smells will bring you back to a moment in time than anything else. It’s amazing how much can be conjured witha few notes of a song ora solitary whiff of a room.-Emily Giffin.

Blog! Blogging!! Blogosphere.

Blog: an abbreviated version of ‘weblog’, which is a term used to describe websites that maintain an ongoing chronicle of information.

Blogging is a love /hate relationship, it is not just for fun

Though you must enjoy doing it, but it’s not all the time you are excited about it.

Blogging is a rite of passage to those passionate and serious about it, I hope I can say that about me.

I hear how people are making cool cash out of this chronicles, I would love to get some of the cash  sometimes soon. (who no like better thing0 but until then I keep  on falling in and out and in again with you blog!

In the meantime, I have learnt that it is not about pleasing others, it is about your truth, no matter how great or ugly it may look , write! just write whatever comes to mind till your hands bleed- Because content is king.

The more you let it out, the more it flows from you to the world. You can never tell who’s watching. You can never tell who will identify with your truth.

With my blank space ready for some inkling, Here I stand as a ready writer.

Let my words inspire, let it encourage you as I encourage me.

Above all let the Master writer of life chronicles delight in words, as he lets out His smiles to me as he reads my heart poured out in this space called “blogosphere’. Because God is involved.

Gratitude Thursday on Friday.

The exercise from Revofkindness this week was centred on gratitude . I wrote a  post on it, you can read it Here. I am someone who likes to thank you to almost everybody for almost anything. I got more and more serious with intentional gratitude when I started keeping a gratitude journal.

I learnt how to be grateful  for all situations, especially unpleasant ones,as I took my gratitude exercise further by meditating on the book of Psalms daily- It’s like a daily dose of thankfulness and gratitude .I take 5 doses daily.

Sometimes, last week I got from someone who had seen me performed somewhere many years back,She heard my songs and saw my book and wanted us to hook up, we tried scheduling a meet to no avail until she called again and ask if I was available and I said yes.

We arrange to meet, and I was supposed to go pick her up from her place to go to the Radio station where she co-anchor a program with her friend. I drove to her place one hour earlier than scheduled time. Because I have a mantra for punctuality, especially when I am not familiar with the route for my appointment. In this case, I didn’t know the route to her house and since I was driving myself I left home early.

She was surprise to see me, an hour before, so I explained to her and all that. I also met her friend and we got talking about my music and how long I have been in the game,all this was happening while my host was getting herself ready so we can head down to the radio station.

As we drove down , we got talking the more,and I knew I will be spending some quality time with this lady, because we just flowed seamlessly in conversation,and I could tell we have quite a few things in common. As we got to the radio station I remembered that I have been to that station once several years back .The memories came flashing fresh once again. We got up to the studio and as we were climbing the stairs I here one of my songs coming out from the airwaves- My friend said to me,’OBA, isn’t that one of your songs playing? I said yes!

Then she asked again,’how do you feel when you hear your songs been played on air? and I said I am always gratefl!

We got into the studio,and she introduced me to the anchor of the program, who was already position behind the machines. Guess what the program is called? Gratitude Thursday with Funmi& Didi.  I mean like seriously! Gratitude again!!

It’s a phone -in program where people call in, to talk about what they are grateful for,and make request or talk to guests on the show. For the next hour, It was really a fabulous time as people called in, to share their gratitude stories. One of the stories got my attention, One young lady called to say that she was grateful for the rain that fell, because she had tried all morning to buy water to fill the tank at home,but somehow the person that sells wasn’t around, and they did have water at home.

The rain fell heavily yesterday and because of that she was able to fill the tank and other buckets,she was excited about it, because that rain was an answer to the water problem she had at home.God works wonders even when it looked mundane or insignificant! some might think what’s the big deal with the rain, but to that lady that called in, it was help at the nick of time. Something to be grateful for.

Other people called in, to express gratitude for families, loved ones, for life and also commented on my music -I am for ever grateful that my skill and talent is making a huge impact and touching lives out there!

I am grateful that I made new friends yesterday,and made the whole crew of TopRadio90.9FM laugh themselves out with the comic side of me, we are laughed and laughed it was such a wonderful time. Because I was reminded again and again, I have every reason to be grateful.

I am grateful that I met amazing ladies touching lives and making impact within their sphere of influence- Yetunde Durand and Funmi Longe the hosts of ‘GratitudeThursday’.

June 3 Challenge.

I am 2 days behind in responding to June 1-30 Challenge. I will try my best to catch on day one and day two later.

Day 3; Three things I can’t live without.

. There are more than three things that I can’t live without in this lifetime. But these 3 are at the top of my “can’t live without you” List.

  1. I can’t live without Air ;D. If there is no air to breathe I’m as good as dead.
  2.  The air I breathe cause me to be alive to be able to do life,and life will be meaningless if I don’t have a love relationship with God through Christ Jesus.  I can’t live without my faith in God.
  3. I can’t live without a sense of purpose and direction.

Families , and friends and loved ones will come and go, The things I acquire and accumulate through will also disappear- I will still be able to live life  with or without life’s acquisitions. But the above 3 lists are my inevitables!

These Keys Open doors-Take it!

DAILY PROMPT- Key Takeaway

You are asking me to advice you really!

Do you think I am qualified to give such,knowing that I am still learning on the Job. :D.

be you.jpg

First things First- You must know why you are here,and why you are referred to as a ‘blogger’, It is not because being called a blogger is what is trending now. You are here because you’ve got a message, you have something to say.

Second things second- Now that you’ve settled the first thing-the next is how do you get the message across. Write ,write, and write more. Write as if your life depends on it, because in actual fact your life does depend on it. You feel incomplete when you are not writing, so write your heart out. 

When you are writing and baring out your soul,don’t get cut up in the ‘stats frenzy’ I tell you it can kill your creativity when you see the graph tending downward. So dear friend forget about the stats, and write on- Pretty soon the stats will be struggling to meet up with YOU!

Third things third- Remember the saying ‘It takes a village to raise a child’. Permit me to say that WordPress is the village, in order to find your way around especially in this teething stage of your blogging journey, you need to connect,and connect with others.

Keep an open mind, not everyone will share your ideals and perspectives but with the passing of time, you will find those who resonates with you. Holla at someone next door, drop a bouquet of flower in the form of likes, comments,reblog,share. You would have made a difference by that show of kindness to others.

Fourth things fourth- Be Original, be yourself! There is no point trying to be like the next blogger, You will find your authentic self as you write and write, find the schedule that works for you and keep it. Don’t try to run another man’s race. There is enough room in the sky for every bird to fly with collision!

You’ve got something to contribute, if you don’t say anything or share anything your story will never be heard.

Welcome to the world of Blogging! I pray that through this journey, your perspectives will be broaden and your contributions will count for something.

With lots of ❤
