Smart Start

Back in Primary School, I got excited every time a new notebook was given to me. There's something about the way it smelled that made me feel I had another opportunity to do better, write better, make my work neater and more orderly, and most importantly, impress my teachers when the time came by reproducing everything they had taught me. New things really inspire me. How about newly printed currency? When I have some of such, I spread them between my fingers like a Chinese dancing fan and place them softly against my nose, then I close my eyes, breathe in, and dream of having so much money so I can do more...

Merry Christmas 

It's so much fun spending Christmas with family; even better when you merge families. That's exactly what we did. My entire immediate family travelled over streams, rivers and forests to be with my Sister and her family. The kids are thrilled. Anna said, 'this is the first Christmas we're spending with Pippa'. She even wanted both families to go to Church together so she wouldn't be away from her cousin, whom she also calls sister or sister-cousin, for even a second. My sister, Aunty Patty, gave me one important assignment - the Christmas turkey. I've done this before so after a quick refresher on YouTube, I was good to go. One new trick I...

2016 in review

Tell me. How has 2016 been for you? What were the low and high points? What is the one thing that will always come to your mind whenever you think back on this year? I had a look at my Keynote presentation - 2016: Reimagine. My goals for the year were captured there. Having it on my phone made it a little easier to track. Through the year, I looked at it from time to time and smiled over something that had been accomplished, made a mental note to revisit something that had been forgotten or neglected, or went back to the drawing board if the strategy for a particular goal wasn't yielding...

Count Your Blessings

Hey! We're in December! I'm counting down to the end of 2016. In fact, I have a table with major activities marked for most days. You can call it my last attempt at getting some things done this year or my preliminary efforts towards a more fulfilling 2017. It's easy to think about goals, achievements and plans in this season but it's also important to remember to take a timeout to count your blessings - from the super amazing events to the pretty much everyday stuff that we tend to take for granted. Waking up in the morning and getting out of bed by yourself, having your body function optimally, not losing your...

Colorful Caterpillar 

On a dull Monday evening, as I walked towards my house, I saw this beautiful caterpillar. I haven't seen anything like this before. I had to stop to take a picture and make a video and I'm sharing this with you. [caption width="270" id="attachment_1306" align="aligncenter"] Colorful Caterpillar in Eket[/caption] Nathan says it walks like it's dancing and shaking its bum. I think it's just a happy creature.  ​[wpvideo g3yh7BM0]​ What a beautiful butterfly this caterpillar will be. Maybe that's why it's so happy. It has an idea of its future. ...

Keep dreaming 

Yesterday I addressed a group of women at the City of David, Eket. It was my first official speaking engagement and I totally enjoyed discussing the topic 'The Career Woman' with them. I took time to prepare and tried to stick to my script as much as possible. Every now and then I felt the need to veer off and discuss something I didn't plan to and I found out that those points were very useful. I didn't realize how much I knew about the subject until this event. It's amazing how good a teacher experience is. I'm grateful for these 10+ years of being a career woman. The Lord has been good...

Success Strategies 3 – Plan

I decided long ago to celebrate the members of my family to the best of my ability each time their birthdays came around. By default, I have those dates on my vacation plan every year. For the kids, the little things matter. Having mummy do almost everything for them is part of the pleasures of their special day. 'Mummy, I want you to bath me and dress me up...
