Tell no one!

Travel and tell no one.

Live a true story and tell no  one.

Live happily and tell no one.

People ruin beautiful things.

Live the life you love and never be sorry for being real.

This thing called Trust

I never strike out to be the perfect wife, mother, daughter, in-law, colleague, employee, employer…I just want to be me, live at peace as much as possible with all.

This does not mean I am willing to accept insults, injustice or betrayal when they come calling. I take such seriously and fight them.

So, when we say we trust someone or we are to be trusted, it says a lot about us and most especially what becomes of us when others are not watching.

I experienced an incidence some hours ago that left me speechless! But then, is it that no one can be 100% trusted as circumstances make or mar the ordinary man. But why even pretend to be who you are not to get what you want?

What makes you extraordinary and dependable is when in the face of challenges, circumstances, economic depression…you can still stand tall not giving way to this thing called ‘cheating’ yet justifying such appalling actions.

Be Real. Be You!

A wiser giver

So, some days back, I saw a video.

The gist was about giving and taking…being a giver or a taker.

This cuts across every sphere of our lives: academics, family, career, spiritual…is it better to give always, expecting nothing in return or you just take from others after all, life is short and we live it only once?

As a mother, I reflected upon this and concluded that I am a giver. A giver with the capital ‘G‘. My 3 year old daughter was analyzing (with her ‘small’ but bright mind) who does what for herself and her little brother. She ended up literally ticking ‘Mommy’ on most of the activities we listed.

And I smiled. One activity managed to get to daddy. Lol. I concluded there and then I am much of a giver to them though oh yes! I receive from them too. What? you might ask?Appreciation in their voices, smiles, even naughtiness. She, especially, knowingly disturbs and then smiles with  mischief. It makes my day though tasking most often.

On my career level, I invest a lot of time, energy, emotions…making my job worthwhile, rewarding and interesting. There are times, so many times, these are not appreciated. I could be weighed down but would rather dust it all off and get on with making my life better all the same because at the end of the day, whatever I do to make life better for me, remains with me forever.

So, be a giver…try and enjoy doing that. You will get to a limit where you just want to throw in the towel, but hey! this is about you and no one else. Don’t let it weigh you down knowing and believing something greater and better moments lie ahead of you.

That, to me, is wisdom!

That Pandora Box

And so while attending an interesting Media training, a colleague posted a link! What a distraction!

My curious me had to read it immediately! And I am glad I did.

A young wife for the first time cheated on her husband. Guilt and all…yes, she is sorry and wanted to know if she should tell her better half.

Waoh. (Or should I spell it as ‘wawu’ like a comedian did some days ago). Some story this is. I read through comments and many advised she confess her sins to him while very few mentioned she does same to Him.

Me? Let’s take some steps back. If the man did cheat on his wife, knowingly or not, will he tell his wife? Chances are that he won’t! So, please, tell me, why should she? One interesting person said even if she does or not, the marriage is over! And I am like, seriously? Do people know what spouses sacrifice to keep their marriage? Even infidelity or other serious issues have not broken most home because they vow to keep the home they have built.

My point. Is he the type that can forgive her? She should know his person by now. If yes, I suggest she prays to God, ask for forgiveness and wisdom and go ahead to confess to him.

However, hmmm! If bros is the jealous unforgiving type, pray, please talk to God alone. Ask for divine forgiveness. Yes I used the word divine because the guilt may eat her up! So pray to God, forgive yourself and move on.

Who says bros is ‘clean’ and can and has never done same?

I am not trying to preach lying in marriages but hey! for me, so long as the maker has been consulted and I am convinced my life is still worth living and most importantly, this issue will not raise its ugly head again, I will keep mute.

God help me.

Keep the Pandora box closed, locked and sealed.

In the News today

Driving to work this morning, I switched my radio dial to Classic fm to listen to Jimi Disu analyze today’s papers.

I froze when I heard a 22months old baby was kidnapped from home by the househelp of about 14 years! With both parents out of the house the help, whose only known name is her first name, decided to leave home with the child.

Why it bothers me so?  I am close to getting a help at home. More like a nanny to help with the kids but I paused. This is not a new development here in Nigeria, no! Maybe because I am searching for one and to think I may just find the wrong person is scary enough.

So what should a career mother do?

In between the analysis, another news was that a 76 years old man defiled his younger siblings! Also, some children were released almost 2 weeks after they were kidnapped from school.

So, pray, who do we leave our little ones with?

Reawakening.

Reawakening.

Did this blog just leave my life the past years or I completely forgot I owe it to myself to scribble daily?

Ha! The past 3 years have been awesome: 2 babies, a home to manage, a paid job to attend to, a personal business to operate and a ‘bigger baby’ to focus on always. Lol…some way to describe my better half.

No excuses.

I have been away.

But I am back.

Scout honor! I will do better.

A happy 2017 it will be.

Lyrics zone 1

There are some songs that get me through the day. Majorly Dido’s songs.
I fell in love with this when taking my baby to crèche one morning and it stuck ever since.

I hope you enjoy it.

You can listen to it on YouTube: http://youtu.be/nZwZnfI4ecM

DIDO
“Never Want To Say It’s Love”

I could put it down to being tired,
Or coming home to an empty house,
A passing moment,
A little man –
No one around to stop me writing to you.

I never wanna say it’s love
But it’s really what I’m thinking of

I could apologize,
And say ‘tear it up,
And put it down to the pills I’ve taken’
Seeing my friends with their lives moved on
Well I’ve been gently drifting

I never wanna say it’s love
But it’s really what I’m thinking of
I felt the same today
As I was feeling yesterday
It’ll be the same tomorrow
From an only one change
I never wanna say it’s love
But it’s really what I’m thinking of

My home is home
And I’m settled now
I’ve made it through the restless phase
I have no reason to get bored anymore
My friends are around and your name comes up
Asking if I ever heard from you
I’m keeping it quiet about those words to you
But I meant every word that I said
I stand by every word that I said

I never wanna say it’s love
But it’s really what I’m thinking of

I felt the same today
As I was feeling yesterday
It’ll be the same tomorrow
From an only one change

I never wanna say it’s love
But it’s really what I’m thinking of

I felt the same today
As I was feeling yesterday
It’ll be the same tomorrow
From an only one change

I never wanna say it’s love
But it’s really what I’m thinking of
I never wanna say it’s love
But it’s really what I’m thinking of
I never wanna say it’s love
But it’s really what I’m thinking of….
