30 days of Gratitude November.

Hello Everyone, it great to be back here on WordPress. What a way to get my blogging groove back, sharing my gratitude for each day. I saw something that caught my fancy earlier today on Facebook and decided to use it as my writing inspiration- 30 DAYS OF GRATITUDE.

DAY 1: WHAT SMELL ARE YOU GRATEFUL FOR?

I am grateful for the smell of my children. I am a proud mother of two high-energy boys,who never let an opportunity of play slip by. When they go out to play and come home with sweat flowing off them like it raising to reach the mountain,off course they wipe the sweat with what ? Their clothes.That smell is a sign of their ability to run around,exercise  and a blessing of Motherhood.

They say you can tell much about a person by their smell because there  are many factors that affect how you smell at a given time- The gift of being alive and active on the playground is a great smell that I will forever be grateful for ?

May I ask you this same question , “what smell are you grateful for? I will be delighted to read your thoughts too.

42 more! counting down

Its 42 days,12hours,17minutes and some microseconds to the end of this great year 2015. It has been a spectacular year so far. I am grateful for the gift of life. I remember as the year began in January I had so many expectations and dreams.

There were 2 significant questions I had to ask myself to keep me in focus in2015;

What will I do differently in 2015? and What is at stake for me in 2015?

The year has been great so far,I still have certain things at stake.

I want to see my album project completed before 2015 bids goodbye.

I hope to see a greater acceptance of my new christmas Ep as it is released in the coming week hopefully!!

Now that I have started writing again thanks to the world of blogging and wordpress. I  hope like to pick up on the draft of my second book and start working on it. I didn’t want to do anything until I finish the album project .

I hope to spend time away with the Men in my life during the Holidays-God we do need a time-out, outside of town!!.

I have also seen the level of growth with respect to my writing skill and blogging. I hope to do more as the days roll by-I hope to make new friends as well.

I hope and pray that God who in his infinite mercies brought ua thus far, will keep us whole and intact-Nothing missing,nothing broken till the end of the year and into the new year. Amen.

ThIs iS My LiFe!

After a very long time of living life through the eyes of others. Enough is enough!

I’ve got only a lifetime to live it .I might as well brace up and live it to the full. It is not too late to take charge right?

I am a woman,wife and mother,but I know there is more to me. I am adventurous,fiesty go-getter,I better go get my life.

I may not be able to get a plane ticket and fly to Dubai right now, I might as well hit the road and go watch the Argungu festival up North.

I may not yet  gain access to the platform at the North Sea Jazz@Rotterdam-This is one of my dream as a neosoul musician :-),I might as well find my way to the Calabar Jazz Festival.

Dream will become reality someday! :-)

Dream will become reality someday! 🙂

Stop telling me,I can’t be all this and all that.You know I stopped to look at the mirror lately,guess who I saw. I saw me,I didn’t see my significant other half,I saw me. I didn’t see my Children,I saw me!!

I saw only me,standing in front of the mirror.From here on,I am going to live my life because it is “golden”.  I will live this beautiful life of mine consciously,intentionally and purposefully. I will make my mistakes,and move on,I will run through troops and celebrate my victories great and small.

I will live this life  for me,I will savour each moment and cherish the memories,but I will never let you live it for me. I will no longer live it for you.  This is my LIFE!

In fulfilment of Writing101: DAY 7.

 

Why I Write.

iamawriter

I write because it is in my DNA.

I write because,there is a voice beckoning on me to scibble things down.

I write because I love to put my thoughts into paper.

I write because I see me in my writing.

I write because  it is a calling,a divine assignment from above.

I write because The FATHER has trained my hands for war and my fingers for battle,so everytime I put pen on paper,I release myself to be a writing soldier and begin to wage war on anything contrary to my Father’s counsel.

I write because on the paper ,’No holds bar!, I can write how I feel ,The pen and the paper have become my

greatest companion because we share secrets I may not share with Humans.

I write because,sometimes I don’t feel like doing it but I get to do it,and when I do it,I just keep on doing it.

I write because I was born to be a WRITER

In Fulfilment of Writing 101: DAY1.

Quote credit: Anna Dobritt.

If I remove my hand from your life!

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “If You Leave.” I thought hard about this prompt and it was difficult to actually figure out .But then the words she said resounded in my mind yet again.

“Banke, ti mo ba yowo loro e, ( Banke, if I turn my back on you, you will not find it funny. Those were her words that early morning,she was back in Nigeria and I stayed back in the UK for another one week.

From that statement you will think this person was my Mum, even my mum will not make such a statement.That was my bosom friend my covenant sister talking to me as If she were “God”. I was hurt and shattered by that statement and for days I cried,I couldn’t understand how someone would want to take the place of God in other people’s live.(Especially when they have done one or two favours for you) They think you belong to them.

At that time I wanted to just quit and end the relationship between her and me,but then I changed my mind and

forgot about the incident. I got back home to Nigeria and I didn’t feel like reaching out to her,because I still felt the pain of being falsely accused.She realised her mistake and tried reaching out,knowing that she’s the kind of person who can’t sorry, I forgave her anyway.Afterall,”To err is human,to forgive is divine.We continued being friends and became much more closer,of course she had her weakness and I had mine(tell me who doesn’t :).

Two or three years after the London episode,something else happened and has usual she began to play the domineering role again. I had to say goodbye for good this time,even though it hurt so much because she was really dear to my heart. I have tried to extend the arm of fellowship ,it had not yielded!

You win some,you lose some. when one door closes,another opens!

In response to Daily Post “If you leave”
