Breast Cancer Awareness.

Hey there!

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

In the Spirit of Independence

Hey!

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!nigerians-620x330

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,
