I don’t think it is too late to say Happy New Year!! May this year be wonderful to us. May it be our best year yet!
I hope you enjoyed your holidays and gave gifts to loved ones and even the less privileged. I had an amazing holiday and I got the best gifts! Can you guess what?
What are your new year resolutions? If you don’t have any, check here for why you should. As for me, this year I’ve promised myself to get better, be better and do better. There’s always room for improvement.
You did some things in the previous year that you regret? Do better!
The year can only and truly be new when you strive to be different. Do things differently. If it means you dropping some people off or changing your career path and chasing your dreams, then do it!
DARE TO BE DIFFERENT.
PS: Harmattan is here! The weather is dry and dusty and everyone is catching the flu. Here’s a few tips to keep you safe from the harsh weather.
- Moisturize your skin properly.
- Stay hydrated! Drink lots and lots and lots of water.
- Apply lip balm. This is so that you don’t have dry and cracked lips.
- Take Vitamin C.
- Wear warm clothes.
- Wipe dusty surfaces and maintain personal hygiene.
- Cover your nose/mouth when you sneeze.
Stay healthy, eat well and be good.

MERRY CHRISTMAS IN ADVANCE!
I’m not sure if it’s too late to ask this but…How did your weekend go? Great? That’s what’s up! Not great? It could have been worse. I had an amazing weekend, attended a wedding, my church had a Christmas concert and I attended another Christmas concert, a theatrical carol actually. It was amazing!
Guyssss, I’ve seen the finale of Skinny Girl In Transit season 4. Sigh. Love is sweet oh lol. Don’t allow anybody tell you otherwise (I should actually be telling myself that but anyways…). Please watch the finale if you haven’t.
Enough gist already…
2017 is on its way out. It was a good year, had a few life experiences that taught me deep lessons. However, I’m glad the year is ending well. 2018 is going to be a good year, I can tell. I feel it in my heart, soul, mind, spirit lol. Basically, I know it’s going to be an amazing year which is why I’m writing to it or better still, I’m writing to myself in 2018 (not sure if that makes any sense as well but you get my point, yeah?)
How’s your Monday going? So, I woke up this morning and in my head I’m like:
My day is going pretty well though but I can’t tell what it is about Mondays that most people dread, can you? Maybe, one reason is how fast the weekend goes (in a twinkle of an eye, fam lol)
Anyways, that’s not what my blog post is on. There’s a very interesting Nigerian TV show I’ve come to really love and enjoy. It’s called ‘Skinny girl in Transit’ by Ndani TV. It’s such a lovely story and very relatable too (for someone who isn’t a fan of series/seasonal shows). SGIT is in season 4 now and I can’t get enough of it.
Welcome to December! May you and all yours have joy at last this month. I’m so thankful to God for keeping us all alive and well to see the last month in 2017. What a year it has been. Whew!
Can you tell how excited I am for Christmas? Well, I am 🙂 . Read my last post on Christmas here.
I had an amazing weekend. I attended The Experience for the first time last Friday. For those who don’t already know, The Experience is an interdenominational (wow!such a long word lol) gospel music concert held in Lagos, Nigeria annually. It is organized by House on The Rock church. This year’s, which was its 12th edition was themed ‘Jesus Our King’ and had powerful ministrations from local and international gospel artistes such as Chioma Jesus, Don Moen, Frank Edwards, Tope Alabi, Tim Godfrey, Eben, Travis Greene, Sonnie Badu, Nathaniel Bassey, Pastor Donnie McClurkin, Chevelle Franklyn, Midnight Crew, Onos Ariyo, Beejay Sax, Micah Stampley.
As a first timer, I had high expectations and honestly, they were met. Even exceeded. Continue reading
Heyyyy everyone! Yess, it’s me. And, I’M BACKKKKK!!!
I honestly must apologize for being MIA (missing in action) for so long. I thought I could handle school, work and blogging at the same time. But hey, I’m back! Thank you to everyone who showed love and concern, I’m here now.
A big hug to those who recently followed my blog, liked my posts and commented. I’m sorry there haven’t been any updates. I’m here now.
I LOVE YOU ALL!
This post is going to be really short because it’s a welcome back post lol. Subsequently, I’ll be sharing things and pictures too of events that have happened in my life. Trust me, so many things have happened! #Anticipate
Before I put a full stop, please share with me in the comment section what you’ll want me to talk about (topic ideas, blog post ideas etc). I would love love to read from you. Please, share your thoughts with me.
Till my next post,
Peace and love !
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!
I hope that your holidays were lit and so many good things happened. Anybody that knows me well knows I absolutely lovee the holiday season, especially Christmas. So you trust that it was awesome. I’m sorry that I was away for what seemed like forever to me, I needed stronger motivation and more inspiration. Guess what? We got this! LOL
Fast forward to what I’m sharing with you today… Few days ago, I had a conversation with my friend and he told me he was conscious of the speed at which the year is ageing already. I asked why and he said it just reminds him of things he planned to do in 2016 and did not achieve. Many of us are wearing the same shoes as my friend I suppose and are so conscious of how fast the year is ageing already we don’t even know how to go about achieving our set goals. While some of us also have made New Year Resolutions, we’re so overwhelmed as to how we’d go about achieving them. Continue reading
Thanks for stopping by the blog. It’s a huge blessing to have you read and share your thoughts on my posts :). How has your October been? Mine has been ‘stress-FULL’. There has been so much school work- assignments, projects – to handle, now my exams are here! I start this week so wish me luck.
Before I share what’s new, here’s a shout out to everyone who read, liked, left comments and shared the post on depression. I’m thankful! I got so much positive feedback (see Depression: How to overcome it. if you haven’t read it yet). However, that has gingered me to share more real life issues with you. I really hope this interests you and you enjoy what’s to come. So stick around, there’s more great stuff ahead!
Fast forward to why my blog’s pink lol. This October, I’m thinking PINK. October is Breast Cancer awareness month and to support this, I have decided to write on it and personalize my blog too. The major, major reason why I’m involved in this is because a few years ago, I had a breast cancer scare (thankfully, it wasn’t). That event made me realize many ladies like myself are either unaware or choose to overlook the issue of Breast Cancer. Stats, according to breastcancercare.org.uk say that, the lifetime risk of a woman developing breast cancer is 1 in 8. Breastcancer.org says too that the younger you are, the lower the risk and the older you are, the higher the risk of breast cancer. While breast cancer in some cases is hereditary, other causal factors are beyond our control. Continue reading
Thanks for stopping by the blog. It’s a new month already so Happy New Month to you. Here’s a short message to October:
“Dear October, please be good to whoever is reading this. Let this month bring joy, peace, good health, success, happiness to who’s reading this.”
Nigeria also celebrates her 56th Independence anniversary today. Happy Independence anniversary, fellow Nigerians!
I asked my roommates this morning what their thoughts on yet another independence anniversary. They did not say anything at first but just sighed deeply, almost at the same time. I was astonished. Why did they have to sigh deeply before answering? Don’t you sigh deeply when you’re tired of something or frustrated?
Nigeria is our very own. We cannot afford to give up on her. We are a great country regardless of what we are facing – recession, the battle against corruption, terrorism- all these would be over. And Nigeria will rise again. We would come out stronger and better.
Before this happens, Nigerians have to CHANGE. The change has to come from individuals, institutions, government. We all are contributing factors to Nigeria’s growth.
After some time, one of roommates said ‘God bless Nigeria’. Take a moment today and say a word of prayer for Nigeria. It could be God bless you, Nigeria. Just say a prayer. God hears us when we pray and He will hear us. Until then, let us enjoy being Nigerians and be proud.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY NIGERIA!!
Peace and love,
Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I trust you’re doing great. Today’s blog post is quite sensitive and different from the ‘usual’ so…Enjoy!
Life is in phases and with each phase come challenges. Depression comes in when we allow these challenges overwhelm us. See, no challenge is insurmountable and mistakes are inevitable. Don’t beat yourself up over what’s happened. Life is short, I know that, but there’s still ample time to do what’s right!
A couple of weeks after my birthday, there were so many events that took place in my life all at once and it had me swimming in a pool of depression (thankful I didn’t drown in it) I’m not oblivious of the fact that people are going through tough times (this economy is more than enough hard time lol) however, there’s always a way out. A solution. A cure. A remedy. A therapy. Call it what you may.
So if you are depressed or you think that you are or about to, I’d be sharing symptoms then tips on how to come out of it (basically, what I did)
First, here are common symptoms that show you’re depressed (I feel like a Dr. right now so please call me Dr. Anie lol) Continue reading
