How your expectations of others define you; a knee jerk reaction


According to the Oxford dictionary, the word definition implies ‘what is meant by a word, context, action, etc…’. A definition is also intended to communicate something that may not be directly expressed! Hence, how you define yourself may be explicit or insinuated through your actions. How you define yourself, however, is unlikely to be seenContinue reading “How your expectations of others define you; a knee jerk reaction”

You may be viewing rejection the wrong way!


I’ve found that there are two main reasons why people get rejected! You are either being devalued by the wrong people or undervalued by the right people! If it’s the former, rejoice and sing your hallelujahs! You’ve probably dodged a bullet! However, if it is the latter, then there might be room for personal growth!Continue reading “You may be viewing rejection the wrong way!”

Sleep Eludes


It is 02:06 hrs and it’s rather … LOUD. To my left, the electric heater screams loudly and the stillness around me nags my brain. To silence the disparate faculty in my cranium would be an achievement I’m yet to attain this year! However, tonight, there seems a need to finally convene a meeting. SoContinue reading “Sleep Eludes”

The age of apathy; the middle ground between love and hate.


I imagine being given two oranges!; one with so much juice and seeds, and the other, however, simply being like the first without seeds! I like to picture love as an act that proceeds to bear more good fruit! And while it’s been thought that hate is the opposite of love, for me it seems,Continue reading “The age of apathy; the middle ground between love and hate.”

A tsp of forgiveness, a TBS of grace and a liter of love


I was recently caught up in a quagmire, where I struggled to process an emotion! From my previous blogs, you will know that I am big on the virtues forgiveness and love. I’d like to think that grace is the link between forgiveness and love.

The 3 types of social media consumers.


TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN About a year ago, I decided to cut down on my screen time. It wasn’t necessarily because I wasn’t being productive in areas I needed to be- or so I thought. However, multiplying an average of 6 hours by 7 days by 4 weeks by 12 months clearly spoke volumes.Continue reading “The 3 types of social media consumers.”

Growing your emotional intelligence; Respect


Have you ever been so angry at a mate you ‘screamed’ so hard at him/her to let out all your frustration? However, after the scream, you got even angrier for having to scream so hard? Well maybe it was not a scream and maybe it was not even someone you could potentially scream at toContinue reading “Growing your emotional intelligence; Respect”

He was customized for the Annan’s’!


Clearly, the world’s confusion about standards makes me pause with the statement ‘I have the best…’. I’d like to think that for the person I’ve become and I’m continuing to grow into, God gave me exactly what I needed and still need!  Daddy! His intellect is my favorite quality of his. I haven’t met aContinue reading “He was customized for the Annan’s’!”

Dear June; an open letter ‘of a sort’


23:44 hrs Dear June, This may be reaching you a little later than expected but it surely is better late than never. I remember peeping through January’s wintery window and wondering when I might find your respite. February always lagged sluggishly like a millipede, moving tortuously along its on path, yet glued closely to March’sContinue reading “Dear June; an open letter ‘of a sort’”
