QOTD: Fail at something

Is it me, or is anything Chimamanda Adichie says often misconstrued and wielded as an example of "oh ye badly behaved Nigerian feminists"? Especially when we’re on the Naija corner of any Social Media platform. I don't need any particular reason, but I thought it was a good time to dust off this draft and share it for a QOTD!

Not that we ever see her failures, or that she shares them with the public at large, but I feel like CNA is always imparting lessons, be they in fashion (have you seen her instagram? Too cool), in the art of VERY smart putdowns to those who dare to come for her stupidly, and in life.

QOTD: What happened, happened

I love this quote, because as we get to the end of 2017, this is one of the things I realize I already know, but have to relearn and be reminded of. In not letting go of the mistakes we've made and in attaching our self-worth or value to things that haven't gone perfectly, we do ourselves a huge disservice. It's no fun being perfect, anyway, so why are we killing ourselves to do it?

Whether the Universe, God, or whichever higher power we choose to believe in has seen it fit to shake you up and shift you around, believe that that shift is just redirection. Don't mope too long; keep moving. 

Have an amazing week! Do you have any (counter)advice on this? Let us know in the comments :)

It's not you, it's them - QOTD

It's not you, it's them - QOTD

Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the options and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
— The Four Agreements

One of the most important life lessons I've had to learn (and re-learn) is that some stuff isn't about you at all. It's not always what you did or didn't do or say, whether you look a certain way or you don't, or whether you're good enough or not. People will do what they do, and be who they truly are, not because of you. Believe that.

Have a great week, and please remember to like, subscribe, share and come back!!
