“Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets” – Matthew 7 vs 12. This is one verse of the bible I don’t resonate with. It’s almost as if it’s the things I’d never do to others, people keep doing to me. Something happened ending last month that …

“Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination or forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing” – August Wilson I hate that my first reaction to crises is thoughts of disappearing. I find myself fading to a place where I get lost in thoughts of how easier it …

Few days ago I woke up to this song playing – Recover by X Ambassadors off of their new album (Orion). The lyrics hit me – “I will recover, I’ll be okay, I’m gonna own my pain…” I had been pissed about a situation I led myself into. I was having misplaced anger towards my ex, though I was the …

CONVERSATIONS WITH MYSELF

After a long day at the office, I got down to my favourite activity just before sleep comes: scrolling through Twitter to get updates on what has been going on around the world. I use Twitter mostly as source of News and an avenue to release all the crazy going on in my head. It’s also been worthwhile as regards …

PS – this is a long post. I began 2018 saying I wasn’t ready to be 30 years old. As the year progressed, I forgot about that ‘cus I had to step up to the challenges life kept throwing my way. If asked to describe 2018 in one word, it would be ‘Growth’. 2018 had me fighting for survival; it …

Note to self – I need…I have to cut myself some slack. I need to learn that in the growth process it’s okay to err, but what matters is that you pick yourself up and keep growing. I need to understand that maturing into the man I desire to be, that man who is in charge of his emotions is …

GROWING UP…

“Just because you did something wrong in the past doesn’t mean you can’t advocate against it now. It doesn’t make you a hypocrite, you grew. Don’t let people use your past to invalidate your current mindset. Growth; a concept. Embrace it.” – @prinzgbemi I saw this on twitter recently and I could relate.  Alongside reading other people’s blog, lately I …

N.B – This post is majorly about me lamenting/letting stuff out as my head is literally about to explode! I’m usually not the superstitious guy but damn…I’m fast beginning to think something is up with me. Following my last post where I expressed how overwhelming it began to feel as stuff kept going wrong and I had to keep spending …

SURVIVOR

April…this month almost had me but God’s Mercies kept me. I sank low, I got to my breaking point and almost lost it. The month started well though I sensed the first few weeks would be tough but I never expected it to be as horrible as it turned out to be. I had a professional exam coming up second …

MEMOIR: THE JOURNEY

“I found a love for me …” –          Perfect  (Ed Sheeran) I have always had this sentiment that no one will can truly, madly and deeply love me in every sense of the word. I mean, to have someone love you so deep, they accept you and all your flaws, choose to ride with you even when you are being unreasonably …
