TRUSTING like a child

“The innocence of children is what makes them stand out as a shining example to the rest of the world.” – Kurt Chambers Children are the most loving, curious, and innocent beings on earth. I love their innocence, especially how trusting they are, without a care in the world. Earlier this week, I dashed into my room to pick an item when my eyes fell on a white paper planted right in the middle of my dresser! A curious glance at…

THE WOMEN BEFORE …

Image credit - Google

The women before me. My mom and sister. My world’s best duo. My comfort and home. My pamper spots and rocking chair. My joy, my pride. My mentors, my tutors. We’ve quarreled bitterly Walked on eggshells like contending housemates do. Allowed our harsh words tear and hurt each other. Tongue-lashed ourselves, allowing bitter quarrels and malice to govern; but wisdom, love, and forgiveness have found their course over the years. As I grow in age, the impact of quarrels on…

The Word Diligence

Be diligent at what your hands find to do, for diligence is the mother of good fortune. A fortnight ago, I was opportune to speak on a panel of 4 at the just concluded Icreate Skills festival. The discussion was on creating an enabling environment for Artificial intelligence (AI) by analyzing different integration models for the digitalization of TVET, simply put, how do we digitalize the employment of tradesmen? It was my first time speaking in that capacity, and I…

My Worry-Free Pill

                         “Man for the sake of getting a living forgets to live” – Margaret Fuller   Are you worried? Last weekend, I woke up with a heavy heart. I was berserk with worry, and I was helpless trying to stop this marauding beast from taking my joy. As my mind circled over the several issues, I convinced my rational mind that crying would be my best outlet. My eyes love…

IWD Celebration – My Gift

What was your International Women’s Day gift? Well, I got a wrapper😂 HE GIFTED ME A WRAPPER!!🤣 My 5-year-old gave me a gift to commensurate international women’s day. ‘Mummy!’ Seddie called. ‘Yes,’ I answered without looking up, still hammering away on my keyboard. ‘Happy international women’s day, mummy.’ I paused momentarily, looked up, and smiled. ‘Here is a gift for you’; he continued, extending a beautifully folded ‘wrapper’ with a smile. A big smile engulfed my face, and my heart…

Where do you draw Strength?

Two members of my household were sick last week, and I was emotionally, mentally, and physically drained from caring for them, meeting work deadlines, and living up to other general expectations from life and family. I felt overwhelmed, overworked, and worn out by anxiety. I constantly fretted over their loss of appetite, reoccurring fever, dull look, and unusually long sleep pattern. I completely forgot the medications administered were kicking in and, their bodies required the long rest to recover fully.…

My Oxygen – This is Who I am

My Oxygen are lines of words I frequently declare to myself to keep me ‘high’ and positive. Often referred to as words of affirmations by many; I chose to call it Oxygen, borrowing the name and concept from my friend Ngozi Akinyele, a speaker on Trendy mum Talks 6.0. Just like Oxygen, I daily gas up myself with these lines reminding me of Who am I – my identity, personality, giftings, and blessings. I am sharing my draft with you to…

AN INTENTIONAL VACATION

I feel good that another school session has come to an end and, the long vacation is here again. This school session has stretched me to bits with many episodes of emotional roller- coaster. Thank God for a great support system. It first began with the online classes and graduated to on-site classes with lots of extra lessons to catch up on outstanding work. It was then crowned with the daily adherence to stipulated Covid-19 protocols at school. We were…

ENJOYING THE GROWTH PROCESS

“Mark ran up the stairs and away from the big black cat, he wrapped his arms around his skinny body trembling with fright…” I lay beside my 4 years old, listening to him read fluently from an old storybook. I smiled thoughtfully as my heart swelled with so much pride. A few months ago, pronouncing three-letter and four-letter words were a great struggle which made my heart worry. It didn’t occur to my ‘overly expectant self’ that Seddie was just…
