QOTD: Live better

Hey y'all!! Have you stopped writing 2017 when writing the date yet? How's the first week of this new year been for you? Share in the comments! Ok, on to the QOTD!

I hate clichés. Especially those ones that are like "feel the fear and do it anyway" or "every thing you want is on the other side of fear." They irk me beyond belief. Which is why I hate that they're also true.   😩

QOTD: Letting life cut you open

Who told you to dare be less than what you were made to be? I already know the answer. Life, right? Yeah, it's done it to me, too. It's done it to a lot of us. Being your real, full self sometimes takes a lot more courage than we think we have, but even if it takes baby steps, like saying No to something or someone once, or deciding to tell someone the truth about your feelings and thoughts, then do that. The longer we cling to ideas, things or people that don't help us move forward, the more harm we do ourselves in the long run. It's a brand new month, and the year is coming to an end. Do yourself this favor, and let go. Growth is never a bad thing.

Remember this; being honest and true to yourself should be your priority. Be the best version of yourself you can be; everyone else will be just fine.

As much as I'm talking to you, I'm talking to myself! Am I right or am I right? Let me know what you think in the comment box, y'all! Till next time.

QOTD: The Fear of Solitude

QOTD: The Fear of Solitude

The beginning of this reads like the Beatitudes, and I definitely think it's a good piece of advice to heed. In the past, a lot of us have (and many still do) fear being alone with our own thoughts because sometimes our thoughts take us to dark places that we'd rather not deal with...

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?

QOTD: Out of the storm

These days it seems storms are never far away. From Benue, to the Niger Delta, to attacks from Boko Haram, issues with IDPs, this economic downturn that's hitting most, if not all Nigerians, to police brutality and gun violence in the USA, Trump...

QOTD: You Will Fail

We need to stop acting as though failure is a bad thing. It is necessary. Obviously, we gotta temper it with sense :) Even though we're hard pressed to find Nigerian/African entrepreneurs who share their stories of failure, they DO exist. Them aside...

QOTD: Your Place

This world can be a thief. We learn to fear so many things that end up robbing us of confidence that is hard to win back, experiences that can help us grow, and many more things that cost even more to get back; things we didn't even realize we lost.

So as hard as it may be (and it is hard, it's a constant battle for me) - take your place and ...

QOTD: A Loving Silence

I've seen/heard different times that we don't really listen; we just wait for a pause in conversation so we can say our piece. Do you do that, or do you truly listen?

I'm guilty of doing it, but less now than before. As I get older, I want more meaningful connections with people around me, and with the people I choose to share my life with, whether at work or with friends/family.  What's the point of having lots of

QOTD: Loyalty

QOTD: Loyalty

As we get closer and closer to Leo season (it is the first week of a new month, right?), it's only right to share what one of my life mantras is.

Although I will say as I've grown older, I find that it is indeed possible to lose that allegiance. That aside, fellow Leos know that loyalty is one of our non-negotiables. When you have a loyal worker or friend, treat them like gold and support them. Cuz once it's gone, it's probably never coming back.

What's your stance on loyalty? Loyal to those who already are loyal to you? Or do you tend to be more chill about the whole thing? Please share.

Happy 4th of July to my American friends :)

Have a great week, and don't' forget to like, comment, share, and subscribe!

QOTD: Free to Feel

A good, quick whine, cry, rant, rage, does the mind and body good. Keyword: QUICK.

The need to be strong, have a stiff upper lip, or keep up appearances so you don't seem weak is one I think we should fight. If you don't mourn or yes, grieve, our disappointments, failings, and losses, then we're just storing up the sadness for another day, and when those floodgates open, there's no telling what the heck is gonna happen.

So have your good, QUICK whine, cry, rage, rant, and then create the space for hope and happy to come in. Have an awesome week!
