The act of Forgiveness

Hiiiiii! Thanks for always coming back! I am glad you’re here to read my next post, by the way I hope you’re staying safe?

Today’s post is about Forgiveness and why you should forgive? Holding a grudge isn’t the best way to live life, you should forgive people and let go.

You can’t change anyone except yourself, learn to forgive even yourself when necessary.

A lot of people move around holding grudges against one another. The funny thing is some people don’t even know they messed with you and you are angry at them. If you don’t make it known that someone hurt you, they may never find out. Why don’t you make it easy for them by letting it go. If you would find peace by talking to them about it then proceed or better still talk to someone else to lift the burden and be at ease, so you can be free.

When you hold grudges against people and don’t learn the act of forgiveness you imprison yourself, you get lost in yourself and only forgiveness can help you find yourself.

The moment you’re lost, it takes a while to find you within you.
There was a moment in my life that my friend got me angry, hurt my feelings and realized, but never asked for forgiveness. I was waiting for the apology which never came but I was also in guilt and I convinced myself I wasn’t at fault.

So you need to know that some people will know they hurt you but would not ask for forgiveness so you should not wait for them and just let it go if not it will keep eating you up.

I am a victim, even I find it hard to forgive myself when I have done something really bad, the fact that I realized it and can’t get my self to even think about the moment is self destructive.
Until I was able to defend my self and explain vividly to myself that it’s not my fault and I would have done it a better way, then I was able to forgive myself. The moment I did, I was free and trust me the feeling of freedom is unique. So when you realize you hold no grudge against no one and not even yourself, you would be different and it is amazing. So I want you to experience this too by learning to forgive.

If you hold a grudge for too long, you kill yourself with guilt, pain, depression and overthinking. This are not healthy for you, they make you feel unprotected.

When you forgive, you become brand new, you become the boss. You are not forgiving them because you feel it is necessary but because it is worth doing. You are forgiving them because it makes you a better person, it makes you whole and gives you a fresh breath. You owe yourself that much.

Indira Ghandi says “Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave” Are you brave enough to let go and move on? I ll leave you to answer that.

I hope you learn to forgive sooner than later. I am not an expert at forgiving but I try my best to clear the air and do what is right because it makes me a better person.

End of Ramadan is not the End!

Yesterday marked the end of Ramadan (Alhamdullilah) and today Eid is being celebrated.
The moon wasn’t sighted on Friday which prompted all Muslims round the world to take a fast on Saturday for the completion of the 30 days Ramadan fast.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar for Muslims worldwide. In the holy month of Ramadan comes fasting (sawn) and takes 30 days except for the sight of the moon which sometimes makes it 29. Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam which is observed in the holy month of Ramadan.

The five pillars of islam which are;
Faith (shahada)
Prayer (salat)
Alms giving (zakat)
Fasting (sawn)
Pilgrimage (hajj) are considered mandatory by believers and the foundation of Muslims. These five pillars revolve around Muslims.

Ramadan is a month for fasting, worshipping, atonement, giving alms, caring and been at your best behavior.
In accordance to this, Muslims restrain from sexual relations, bad behavior, sinful acts and sinful languages.

Ramadan is a month that Muslims round the globe look forward too and welcome with joy, love and happiness. It’s a special month that comes with a lot of goodies to go round.

For a true Muslim, End of Ramadan is not “The End” but start of a New Journey leading towards The Jannah.

To celebrate the completion of the 30 days fast here are some things you shouldn’t stop doing after the holy month passes.

Praying– It is the soul of a Muslim, for every moment that you live, you should pray and worship your God. Don’t be a servant of Ramadan just because of the fast but be consistent and continue to serve Allah. Make duas for your brothers, sisters, family and friends in good heart and with love.

Charity– Ensure you give alms as long as you can, giving back isn’t going to hurt, it makes you closer to your God.

Eating– Ensure to continue eating good food and stay healthy, it keeps you going and remember to share when you have more than enough to go round.

Love– Share and spread love. Worship at your local mosque, get to know people and network. The little you share can go a long way for others, remember love is mutual.

Reading the Holy Quran– Don’t be in a haste to accept only the blessings of Ramadan, when there is more to be achieved. Read the Holy Book even after the end of Ramadan and follow the light so it brightens and pave way for good deeds.

Preach peace and Love- Islam is a religion of peace and love, continue to spread peace and love amongst each other and help each other accomplish that which may seem difficult.

Oh Allah accept our Duas and make us a better person. May Allah continue to give us wisdom, peace and prosperity. May HE bless us with wealth, happiness and a healthy life to live long and worship him. Wishing you a blessed and prosperous Eid-filtr coupled with amazing joyous moments with family and friends to inspire you with courage and strength to help you win every challenge of life. Amin

Have a blessed Eid
Farewell Gracious Ramadan, you will be dearly missed! Till we meet again in health, wealth, prosperity and faith.

Working from Home Efficiently

This is not a regular post, oh my guys!!
Eehhh….. from the bottom of my heart I wrote this post ehhhh….
Meanwhile the above content can sound awkward, but while I was working on this post, Adekunle’s “mama” kept on replaying in my head and I thought I ll make some thing out of the lyrics.
Smiles! If you have listened to Adekunle’s “mama” you would know what I am saying.

Well today’s post is about working from home efficiently. Since the lockdown, a lot of people has been forced to work from home and recently it has not been easy for some who are not used to it.
So to work from home and help you deliver well, here are few tips to help you.

1) Get dressed- To get the job done, you should get dressed. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying wear your official clothes, No! I am saying wear something casual and comfortable that makes you feel relaxed and ready to work. I believe a lot of people wear Pjs all day and this makes you feel too relaxed and not ready to work.

2) Create specific time- Ensure you create time to work. If you will work for 2hours, dedicate your time to this hours. Don’t wash when you’re suppose to be working or rather during working hours. Assume that you’re at work, so be on a full work mode.

3) Create a work space- Make a spot in the part of the house as your work space, you should have work items like; laptop, stationary, printer, and so on there to make you feel at work. Don’t sludge while working, sit upright and eradicate all forms of distraction.

4) Focus on what you really have to do- Take away all means of distraction like your phone, unless it is necessary and avoid the social media platforms, tv program at that moment. That way you’re into work and you can work smarter and faster.

5) Have something to munch on while working- You can have a cookie jar, chocolate, a bottle of water, a glass of juice and stuffs you like on your table to help you feel relaxed and work even better.

I hope with this tips you can work even better from home. There you have it, don’t forget to subscribe if you haven’t. Comment, like and share.

24 Lessons before 24

Juicy Birthday content😊

24 looks good, I know right! So it is my birthday and this post was inspired by Pooja. Check out Pooja’s blog via lifesfinewhine you would love it.

Considering Pooja’s post, I also thought I would share the lessons I have learned in 24 years. Here you go!!

By the way remember to say a prayer for the birthday girl. Thanks in advance.

1) Be patient
The key to all is patience, one who is patient would definitely go places, you should not be in a hurry to reply to people or do something. Think twice and remember patience is key.

2) Prioritize
This is a very important aspect in your life, when you prioritize you are able to do and undo. This gives you the leverage to be up to the task, you need to own it.

3) Be happy
You should come first in all your decision, no one would make you happier than your self. Happiness is contagious and you are the sole provider, so make yourself your priority.

4) Be a brand
Have a brand, don’t copy others and don’t expect others to help you. Build your career and compete with no one.

5) Just do it
You should man up to do what is necessary to get you the treasure you desire. It is better to start and fail rather than failing to start. You may regret it for the rest of your life.

6) Give back to others
It is necessary to give back to others. It won’t hurt to do a bit of volunteering, it would go a long way.

7) Take advice
Listening to advice does not necessarily mean you should follow all these advice, it is left to you to choose or follow the one that you feel is best for you.

8) Stay out of trouble
You should know when to talk or argue and when not to. Sometimes making peace is better than been right.

9) Know when to be brave
Cody Sperber said ‘’sometimes all you need is 20 seconds of insane courage, literally 20 seconds of embarrassing bravery’’. So ensure to make the change when it is needed one thing I have learnt is to take the bold step and not hesitate.

10) Don’t relent
Try over and over again, don’t give in due to pressure. No one gets hurt for asking too many questions, if you don’t get the answer don’t stop asking.

11) Network
Don’t stop connecting, make sure you connect with people, contribute to someones interest, find it interesting to exchange information and develop professional and social contacts.

12) Appreciate the people in your life
You have a lot to be thankful for, always cherish and appreciate the people in your life.

13) Eat well
I am a fan of good food. I have even tasted some weird food, So apart from been a foodie, one thing that you should know is food can never do you wrong, unless it is not delicious. So eat well.


14) Always have a backup plan
It may not be needed in all cases, but having one would be a great help, that way things get easier.

15) Learn, Unlearn and Relearn
Alvin said the 21st century illiterate isn’t someone who cant read or write but someone who isn’t willing to learn, unlearn and relearn.

16) Be unique
You should not do it the same way simply because others are doing it that way. Be different by trying something else.

17) Have fun
Life is too short to take things too serious, make time to enjoy life.

18) Forgive
Always forgive for good. Don’t forgive because you need to but always forgive because it makes you a better person.

19) Acquire more skills
Sometimes in order to get an edge over others, acquiring more skill is important.

20) Show compassion
The language of kindness is the same around the world, regardless of what language you speak. Always be kind to yourself and others.

21) Don’t rely on people
Don’t depend on anyone to get the job done for you because even your shadow leaves you when you are in darkness.

22) Learn from your mistakes
Life isn’t meant to be perfect. Mistakes don’t break you, they make you stronger. When you make a mistake, man up, learn from It and move on.

23) Cherish your family
Family is everything! They are the perfect gift from God. Don’t lose sight of your family, they make you better, they are important and simply everything.

24) Travel
Explore the world as much as you can. This is one of the many things on my list.

So Yaaaaaay! I hope you learnt one or two lessons. don’t forget to like, comment and share.

Secret to Maintain Good Value

Do what is right, not what is easy.

Try not to become a man of success, but a man of value. Look around at how people want to get more out of life than they put in. A man of value will give more than he receives. Be creative but make sure that what you create is not a curse for mankind. “Albert Einstein”

For a while now, I have thought of what it means to value people. The term “I value you” should not just be a sentence you say to someone, rather you should be able to show it and mean it. It is said that until you are able to love someone to the extent that you can’t cheat on them, then you would know the difference between being in love and just saying I love you.

You would agree with me that the people in our lives are meant to be valued, held dearly and treated with respect.
So here are few tips on what good values is and how to maintain it.

Share love- To love is to be willing to give into others, spreading love is a nourishment on its own to the soul. When you are able to share, admire, commit, you add value to yourself, family and others.

Value your family- Your personal belief is important but what is good is good and what is bad is a totally different value. The moment you are able to denote that, then you understand value. Cherish your family, take responsibility when it is required and be there truly to serve your purpose. Ensure to play your role, family is everything, be sure to be at the table at the right time.

Be interested- Show Interest in people you value, let them know you will be there when they come knocking. Only few opens up when the time comes and the people you value will only be assured that the door will be opened if only you make time for them, see through them and be willing to run the race with them.

Find out what they need to step up- Encouraging your friends, family, and coworkers may not be enough to get them ahead of the storm, how about helping them step-up. Help them with resources they need to succeed, give them the time and help them deliver.

Don’t teach a man how to eat a fish, teach him how to catch it, so he knows the value when he eats it. Olamide S. (2020)

Be Reliable- Finally, be trustworthy, consistent and dependable. People want to see themselves with people who are true, authentic and honest, that way they feel at home.

On a final note, Value is authentic, realistic and personally admirable, I will leave you with this;

Champagne is expensive but water is not, champagne no matter how expensive won’t quench the thirst of water. Water may be ordinary but it value can’t be replaced. Value the people in your life, you would not regret it.

So yeah! Do not forget to express your personal opinion on this at the comment section and do not forget to like and share✌️

My Lockdown Routine

It’s been 28 days or more since the lockdown and it has come with different feelings for everyone.

I leave the house once in two weeks to help restock. Sometimes I take a stroll down the street or stay at my sister’s shop down the house.

For some reason there is nothing new to do since I repeat my routine.

During this period I have also switched from wearing camisoles and shorts to pyjamas and sweatpants. I feel I am not the only one on this table, it’s probably the same with some people.

Who would have thought that for some reason we would be stuck at home. Well here are six things I have been up to since the lockdown.

Tadaa💃

1) Movies– Since the lockdown, I have watched more movies than I would, I have laughed, cried, giggle and learnt from this movies. It really reduced my boredom. I watched some web series on YouTube and later I discover that my data was at stake😂 By the way I also watched money heist since it was trending on Netflix and everyone kept talking about the spanish series. Ps- it’s actually worth it, I can’t wait to see the next season by April 2021, God keep us safe till then!

2) Blogpost– I was able to write a lot, I created more content than I would before the lockdown and I made sure it’s worth it so it can cover for the period I might not write. I usually create time to write or just do it when I am less busy, it’s really a good way to consume time.

3) Music– I am not the type to sit and download music unless I probably really needed it. The lockdown made me realize how much oldie my music library was, well it’s updated now, thanks to the boredom. I had no choice anyway, you should listen to chike’s “Boo of the Booless” its a really cool album you know.

4) House chores– This has been a regular routine but I guess it also made it to the list since its something I usually do everyday, I guess this is the only thing that hasn’t changed before the lockdown and will remain after the lockdown.

5) Play Board Games– I have always been a fan but I never learnt, I didn’t know how to play but since the lockdown, I had to learn how to have fun by playing. I can’t let my siblings have all the fun.

6) Sleep– I have also been sleeping a lot, since the lockdown I have slept more compared to how I sleep before the lockdown. It’s just been repeated, and now that it’s the Holy month of Ramadan, I ll sleep even more😊 ps- Ramadan Mubarak to all Muslim fam around the world, wishing you all the blessings of the Holy month.

There you go guys!💃💃 I would love to see you share your routine since the lockdown in the comment section 👍🏽

That’s it for this week, please ensure you continue to stay safe! Remember to like and comment and also thanks for always coming back!

Living Life on Your Own Terms

It is never too late to be what you might have been.
-George Elliot-

It would be courageous to live life on your own terms. You would agree with me that continually representing yourself and making yourself happy is living the life you have always wanted.


What do I consider as living life on your own terms?
Life on your terms is satisfying your inner self, making yourself proud, chasing your dreams getting things done and achieving that goal you have always wanted.
Simply, it is living a life that is fulfilling to you, being able to achieve your dream as well as having a beautiful family to enjoy this quality and meaningful life with.

Why does it matter ?
A lot of people live life without purpose. They generally feel it is necessary to do what others want because it is the right thing to do. They get carried away with the bills, taking care of the family, their homes and making decisions that is preferably good for others but does not contain themselves.
All they care about is the work, the pay and how to get over and done with the bills, leaving themselves out of the equation. This would never balance up in as much as you are not in the picture. I believe until you can create a picture that entertains your dream, accommodate your goals and fulfilling your family duties along side them, you are living life on your own terms.

Now that you know, how do you go about it? How do you live life on your own terms ?


Well, it turns out, you can dramatically live life on your own terms by taking few steps up. Here are few tips on how to live life on your own terms.

1) Re-write your plan: Take time to consider what your life would look like, make a plan and indicate the steps you need to ensure you input the things you have always wanted to do.

2) Take your time to check yourself out: Now ask yourself if you are stuck between something that makes you farther from your dreams. Is there something you are holding onto or something that holds you back from moving towards your goal, take time to consider what to do to get closer to achieving your dream.

3) Consider the step up: Take time to consider what change you need to decide on, which makes you a step closer. Take note of all the ideas that comes to your mind that you can work on to achieve your goal. Ask someone for help if need be, talk to someone who can help you identify things you maybe confused about and get on track.

4) Draw your plans: Now that you have identified the problem and sketched out the solution, how about you make a promise! You need to draw a plan that helps you move closer to your dream. If it will take 8 months or 18 months, you can only get closer if the plan is written down and the steps to getting there is identified. For every step you take, ensure you meet up with the promise, if you do so, then your plan is as good as perfect.

Finally, make sure your goals and objectives are met as represented in the plan. If you don’t take the steps towards your goal, you would end up staring at it from afar. So starting today would guarantee a more fulfilled dream.

So, do your best to ensure you live your life on your designed terms, give it an approach that suits it. Do you need more money to step up? Work toward making that live suitable for you, find out what keeps you going and never compare yourself because the help you need may not be the help your opponent needs, keep it positive and match towards fulfillment…

Coronavirus disease 2019 also known as “Covid-19” is a disease said to have originated from Wuhan, China. Its first case was reported in December 2019. Covid19 is thought to have originated in a seafood market where wildlife was sold illegally.

Coronavirus is a global pandemic which defines the health crisis of our time and is the greatest challenge being faced since the World War Two according to the UNDP (United Nations Development Programme). The virus which has gotten to every continent except Antarctica is a global threat.

The pandemic is fast spreading and the cases rise everyday, at this stage everyone and anyone is a threat to another, so it’s our duty to protect ourselves.

There’s currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19, So you can protect yourself and help prevent spreading the virus to others if you take note of the following:


Do’s
1) Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, with soap and water and use a hand sanitizer
