Paddle your canoe is a slang I learned in boarding school, it means to mind your business. In my head, the concept of minding your business by paddling your own canoe always creates a vivid image of a person frantically trying to paddle another person's canoe while sitting in theirs. Although, I do not know the history... Continue Reading →
Last week was a blur, I was all over the place. I had a lot of "present but not mindful" moments, I had a lot to do with such little time. There were a few moments of questioning my priorities, loyalty and asking whether I was crossing the thin line between self-love and selfish.... Continue Reading →

Are there people in this day and age, who get a product and take time out to read the manual before attempting to use it? Well if there are, I'm definitely not one of them.

You see, I'm afraid my creepy neighbor is lurking somewhere in the dark waiting for the perfect opportunity to start a conversation. Conversations are good, involuntary 2 am conversations aren't.
The song Onise iyanu by Nathaniel Bassey has become the soundtrack of my life, because I have indeed tasted of God's powers. 2017 has just started and God has proven over and over that he is my very present help in time of need. Believe people! He is indeed very present. God is a God... Continue Reading →
Are you single to a stupor? Yet to come to terms with the fact that singleness is your thing? Get in here this post is for you. Okay I kid, there isn't such a thing as "single to a stupor".

This post is definitely for you.
