Reflections

So today marks two years since I started writing and using this platform. I never imagined my life like this and I never knew I could write or had a gift! Sometimes I wonder if this is real, other times I am amazed at myself. I started writing not to impress people but to let…

I Have Found Home

I have wandered and been to so many places in my life but all the while, I never felt myself or at home. I craved it so bad! I wanted a place that I could completely be myself and express myself as a person and not what has always been expected of me. Every time…

My Seeds

As a little girl, I was always taught the importance of sowing and reaping both at church and school. I knew that if I wanted good fruits to germinate, I had to sow good seeds, which as a good girl I did. But along the way, life’s curve balls were thrown and several mistakes I…

Entry One: Scars

I have several scars on my body, some acquired through rough play as a child and some through accidents, trips and falls. I have been thinking about them lately because I was looking for a particular wound I acquired a few years ago but couldn’t find it. You see, I use to hate my scars…

Seasons of Friends

Can we talk? I miss you! It has been a while but now I have come to terms with the end of our friendship. You see, I didn’t have many friends or people around me growing up so when I meet someone and we become friends, I envisioned them being part of my life forever….

My Lessons and Vows

This picture was taken on my exact birthday last year. I look at this girl and the girl writing this post and there have been so much tears, sadness, improvement and change that sometimes I stare at myself in the mirror and ask ‘Is that me?’ I am constantly amazed and surprised at the journey…

To Find Myself

It has been a while since I left. No calls or texts from you. Sometimes, I feel like picking up the phone just to hear the sound of your voice and sometimes I feel like you don’t care about me anymore. But deep down, I know, leaving was for the best. Sometimes, I imagine how…

The Cost of Being Bitter

Not sure about you but I have been hurt, not once not twice; I cannot even count how many times. From been the least favourite person wherever I found myself, to been cheated on and to been abandoned by the least person I could ever have imagined. How could I been born into this kind…

Can’t See Past this!

You know I had so much great stuff planned for this year, but it has just been few months into the New Year and life’s curveballs have been thrown to me. Sometimes I feel I am strong enough to pass this, other times I don’t think I can make it out alive. I try to…

Waves

During the summer, I went to a tourist attraction city and rode on Captain Hook’s ship, which I really enjoyed. But along the way, I noticed that waves appeared and the ship began to swing and my friends became scared, thinking that they were going to fall into the sea. I looked up and saw…

Your best cheerleader

Hey guys, I wrote an article for Girl Talk London and I would love for you guys to read it. Here I am sitting down in front of my mirror, thinking and with tears running down my cheeks. Why are things not working for me? I have tried my very best but I am seeing no…

My Belief System

Sometimes, church, culture and society tells us to do something because they believe it is right and then we take that as the norm and reality meanwhile it isn’t God’s best for our lives. I have recently found that by the age of 8, human beings have formed a belief system, which can sometimes be…
