I have, for the last couple of years, been worried about the fact that people might perceive me as younger or older than my actual age. It became a source of concern when I moved to Lagos.
I confided in a friend about this insecurity, and he said something very profound. In his exact words, “Who defines what someone in a specific age should look like?” It really got me thinking. Who says that a 23-year-old must look this way or that way? Who defined these ideas or perceptions?
It became obvious that this was a case of me holding…

Sometime in 2019, a very good friend of mine started journaling about her life experiences. I was impressed by how much attention she paid to the minute things in life. This motivated me to start paying attention to everything that happened to and around me every day and note my learnings as well.
I’ll be sharing something I learned on my 3rd day of doing this. This lesson made the most impact in my life in 2019. And here it is:
“Man’s approval doesn’t…
I want to first commend you for consistently praying to God. You’ve attained this habit, this means you can attain any other habit if you follow the same method — practicing every day.
I know that God has given you a Word, but nothing has changed, do you think God will use you in your lazy state?
You see the unbeliever prospering(I’m not talking about the ones that got their hands dirty), the unbeliever who’s putting in the work, and you begin to ask God questions forgetting that God makes His sun to rise on the evil and on the…
As a little girl, my parents gave us money for upkeep whenever we were going back to school. We called it pocket money. I had this habit of saving and managing mine, but my sister always spent hers. Whenever emergency bills came, I’d have to support her with mine. I hated doing that so much, it made me look foolish. How can I starve myself to feed someone else who was given the same amount as myself? …
Hello people, Watagwan?? How’re you holding up with the quarantine? Guess you’ve attended more online parties (and meetings) in two weeks than you’ve done in a year.
In recent times, a lot has been happening all across the world: the novel coronavirus, conspiracy theories, 5G and, most importantly, the rebirthing.
I won’t directly address the first three as those are distractions from the real happenings. I call them distractions because they’ve birthed fear, panic and insecurities in the heart of men. …
Life places us in difficult places and situations.
We don’t have the right to be born with a silver spoon or be born into suffering.
But we have the right to choose to leave our children with silver spoons.
We have the right to leave footprints in the sands of time.
We have the right to be remembered forever.
To do this, we struggle our way to the top,
We compete and collaborate,
We fight, because we are different from the children who were born with the silver spoon.
Amidst all these struggles, we suffer society critics and judgments.
Peer pressure and influence.
But, We are fit, we will get better, and certainly,
We will survive.
We’re making lemonades out of this LEMON.
We are creative
And we know it
We stay in places,
Our views limited,
And our growth is constrained
Belief in us is low
Competition instead promoted
Toxic it may be.
Collaboration we prefer
Cooperation we need.
We are passionate
Seeking ways to fill our raging bellies.
The solution is spreading
Spreading, our greatest fear.
How can we survive apart?
Yet the solution stares
Despite the naysayers.
To grow stronger together.

I remember vividly that night,
the way you called my name,
the way you made me wait,
the road we walked on,
And everything we talked about.
I still hear the whispers of your voice,
I still feel the comfort of your arms,
How special you made me feel.
You say it’s over,
You never meant it,
Like a dream,
Everything that just started had to end.
There’s so much tears in my eyes,
my heart is filled with pain,
I can’t accept it yet,
I grieve for myself.
Like the strong me,
Always like the strong me,
I’m strong enough,
The floor wasn’t made for me,
I will always RISE!!!!
