Blowing off the cobwebs

I won't even say it.

Ok, yes I will

I'm Sorry.  

Not much to say other than between the lack of inspiration, "real life" crowding out other things, procrastination and just plain ol' pressure, I haven't done better. And I actually think that moving forward, what's important is that when I *do* show up on here, it's with something that's worth it, and that comes from a place that genuine, not a task that I feel forced to do.

 But then again, being a responsible adult is doing what you need to do even when you don't feel like it, yes? So where's the balance? What do you think? Where is your stance on this topic? I'd be interested to hear it, if you'd like to share in the comments below.

I'm sort of conflicted about Nigeria, where it's going, and what my place is here anymore. Trying to build a business while dealing with impostor syndrome, a system that doesn't truly make sense, and the need to juggle personal values and integrity with crooked lines (and people) is another part of why I've been absent. It must be great for the people who have it all figured out! If you're one of them, send me the magic pill. If not, let me know how you're dealing, especially if you're in Nigeria or anywhere else in the world, really. We all have similar struggles, I think. Not talking about them makes them seem a lot more insurmountable.

 This is a free-wheeling post that I didn't truly plan, but wanted to share what's been going on. We'll be back to a more structured approach soon. Thanks for bearing with me. My analytics show me that you guys still check up on me and it is so appreciated! Thank you.


Ok, so leave me some words in the comments about what's been up with you, and I'll see you around here real soon! ❤️

QOTD: An Unlived Life

Happy Monday, y'all. Everyone has been talking about this "never ending January" and I can't help but feel a twinge for the people who started it and didn't get to see its end.

A bit morbid, maybe, but a colleague passed away a few weeks ago and there have been accidents I've heard of involving people I know or know of, the killings happening in Benue state, here in Nigeria, terrorism and bomb blasts, shootings and all sorts of awful things going on around the world.

So death, whether we like it or not, is an ever present factor.

The Highlight Reel: July & August

A long overdue post, and I apologize!! I have been all over the place recently, and here's what 've been up to. I'll give you the highlights for each month, shall I? 

JULY: A very Google week: From an intimate dinner for select friends of the house, to a 2 day YouTube Creator workshop, to a culture and arts night, all culminating in a final conference day...

AUGUST: Aka my birthday month!! Between shooting my new TV show for Ebonylife TV (Yup, coming soon!!), which I'm producing, writing for and presenting, hosting a couple of events, and of course, my birthday...

The Diaspora Festival was probably the most eye-opening experience I had. The emotions the returnees had, and the connection they felt, made me curious about the way people from other cultures, especially those who have history rooted in slavery, often feel; like something is missing...

QOTD: Experiencing Life

That first line had my eyebrow going UP, because for my fellow Nigerians, and lots of others around the world, problems seem to be showing up or popping up around every corner these days, am I right or am I right?
