Rome

Rome wasn’t built in a day, but these days it seems we all want to do just that or better - how about building it in a minute? Like Mister Maker. Ambition is good but every now and then, I see the need to calm down, assess the situation and push some things out into the future. Guess what!!! There’s something called TOMORROW 💃💃🕺🏼🕺🏼and you probably will still be here then. So why kill yourself prematurely by trying to get too many things done TODAY? Notice I said ‘too many’. MANY is fine but TOO MANY isn’t. And our bodies and other indicators signal us when we’re getting to TOO MANY. A good indicator for...

Your Best

I just watched a video of a young and extremely talented doctor/singer who passed away after an accident. I'm thinking - he was all that yet his life came to an end after it took a turn for even greater heights. What happens to dreams, desires, and ambitions when a life comes to an end? Death often means the end - case closed, nothing more to be done; but in some cases dreams outlive the dreamers in diverse ways such that their lives keep speaking and having an impact even when they are no more - people's memories of the person, people buying into their vision and running with it, the lives they touched,...

Long Distance – Part 3

A lot was happening all at once. 2007 turned out to be quite a year. Could it be because I wrote out all those interesting items on my list of things to accomplish in 2007? Could it be that in addition to dreaming and planning, I was praying for those wonderful things to happen? Could it be that heaven actually paid attention and dispatched resources to grease the wheels of fortune and make those dreams come true? Well there’s more. Sometime before our moves to Lagos, Kingsley came to Abuja to visit his parents. Then he made our engagement official by informing them that ‘Annie’, the young lady they knew very well, was...

Who I am and Why I'm here

Who am I? I'm a singer, songwriter, chemical & environmental engineer, wife to one husband, and mother to three wonderful children whom I learn from day after day. As I go through life, I try to learn from my experiences and those of others. I believe we can create a better tomorrow by applying these lessons so I share them on my blog so others can benefit. You can call this my little contribution to make the world a better place, one lesson at a time. A dose of motivation is needful every now and then. Sometimes the pressures of life hit hard and bring us down to the point where we even begin...

Finishing Strong

Over the past few weeks, I’ve heard about ‘finishing strong’ from two influential figures in my life. I think it’s a tactful approach to start now to refocus efforts towards finishing strong. That way we can invest the coming weeks to months in clear cut steps that will bring about maximum achievement; the kind that will be reason enough to gather our loved ones together to celebrate, or to just sit in quietness and be grateful. Are you considering jumping on this FS wagon? Then here’s a thought to help you on your way: Decide on the one or two things that would make a remarkably fulfilling difference in your life if you accomplished...

Self Discipline

Here’s my definition of self discipline – You do what you know you should do because it is the right thing to do if you are to achieve your goal. I think self discipline would be difficult to develop if there was nothing to look forward to. There has to be a cause, a reason, a driver, a motivation. I have found that when the strength of one’s purpose begins to diminish or you begin to lose sight of it, it becomes increasingly difficult to stay committed to the cause and you find that the tendency for lapses increases. I believe that we need discipline now and everyday. If you disagree, cast your mind back...

Mid Year Check

I wonder why I needed a reminder this time. It didn't quite register that we're almost at the end of the first half of the year and it's time for a Mid Year Check. Well, I'm extending the reminder to you. Your Mid Year Check is due! Here are some things to check out: The wonderful things that have happened thus far - consider them and be grateful The mishaps you've experienced - be grateful again because you made it this far in spite of them. You could throw in some thoughts on what you could do differently next time to prevent such occurrences, that is, if these are issues you can control Your goals -...
