Memory Lane 2 – Time Wasters

“That means I’m in love with about five ladies’. Yes, that’s what he said. I’ve been waiting for the right time to share this experience. I think it’s time now. I thought this matter of time wasters would have faded into almost non-existence but from what I hear, it’s still on, big time, and some ladies are getting caught in their webs. Let me tell you about my encounter with one. I’ll call him Timbo. In the early nineties, my family moved into a rented house. A few weeks in, we got acquainted with our neighbors and one of them was Timbo. He was older by a few years and seemed like a very...

Memory Lane 1 – Asthma

Every now and then I take a walk down memory lane and count my blessings. This time I came upon an experience that I will never forget and will forever be grateful for. Different things remind me about it as I carry on with every day life - a cough, a whistling sound while someone is breathing, and so on. Yes, those are symptoms of asthma. A few years into being Mr. & Mrs. we decided to move out of what had been our first home. It was a 2-bedroom flat located in a transition zone between a village somewhere in Lagos and the Lekki-Epe  express. Our first child was born while we...

May

New Month! Four gone, eight to go, then we'll be shouting 'Happy New Year' again. Time truly waits for no man. A cousin of ours came visiting. Just yesterday she gained admission into the University and now she is getting ready for her fourth year which will begin in September. Where did the time go? I'm glad that I'm able to account for that time with a few worthwhile accomplishments but I see also that more traction is required for some other dreams to become a reality. Are you still dreaming? Don't stop! There's never a bad time for a good idea. Light bulb moments are always welcome and where there is a will,...

An invitation

It was a wonderful holiday. I think the kids had the best time visiting their friends and bonding with their cousins. Kids often get the best deal when it comes to relaxing and resting. The school calendar just works for them - work hard 3 months, take a break for about a month, and then back to school. Most teachers are nice enough to send pupils home at the end of the term without homework; others are not so kind. Sometimes, you just wish...

Have Faith – Think Big

Everything is possible for one who believes. Anything is possible if a person believes. Everything is possible to the one who believes. As far as possibilities go, everything is possible for the person who believes. Yes. I would have assumed that Jesus didn't quite mean everything or anything, but when I think of one of His followers saying 'I can do ALL things through Christ who gives me strength', I have to face it; it must be that He meant exactly what He said. Wow! That's something to think about. I've found that during the transition from one year to the next, we are often in a relatively excited state and we dream big dreams, think big, make...

Ask How

Now that we’re off to a Smart Start, a concept comes to mind that I came across in ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’, a book by Robert Kiyosaki in which he said that compared to rich people, poor people respond in a different manner when faced with a need. He observed that the poor are quick to say ‘I can’t afford it’ - a statement in which there’s no hope or possibility of a positive outcome, while rich people often say ‘how can I afford it?’ - a question that opens them up to endless possibilities. The outcome of these two responses are worlds apart - the poor often do not get what...

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...
