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. More

Why I love…

Hey there!
Happy Friday!!!happy friday TGIF..Fridays are my favee days cos I know after it comes the weekend which is well, equivalent to rest and sleep *big smile*
Life is very lenient you know, it serves us well..giving us the things to love and hate, reasons to be happy and sad..the list goes on and on! I’d definitely share stuffs I dislike here too so don’t go too far *winks*

Why I love… Rahiel Tesfamariam. That’s right! Rahiel’s a black woman, a social activist, a youth advocate, writer and speaker or would I say preacher..she also founded an online lifestyle mag that just has its basis on urban culture, faith and social change..you see that she is not dulling..lol.

That's her

That’s her

Why I love…Rahiel Tesfamariam!
+ She’s black..a strong proof that black girls rock!
+She’s also an amazing writer.
+Also a believer..I cannot but be inspired!

Here’s an amazing piece she wrote which I still feel she took the words right out of my mouth..lol. Enjoy and be blessed!

 What she told God…and His response

“She told God she wanted to fly. To escape every limitation placed on her from birth . To soar to places unimaginable to her ancestors. To reach for the stars and land on her dreams.

She told God she wanted to create. To build legacy and transform everything she touched. To inspire generations to come and to nurture the visions of prophets yet to be born. To generate change with her mere words.

She told God she wanted to love and trust unconditionally. To be the answer to every prayer he had ever prayed and the manifestation of every fantasy he had convinced himself would never come to pass. To be the breath of fresh air he had never sat still long enough to take in.

And God told her..her eyes had not seen nor ears heard what was to come for her”….

Lots of chocolate,

Aniee.
