Structure = Freedom

Having structure in my life makes a huge difference. It may seem inflexible, but I find it quite helpful and it also gives me the freedom to vary things too. Some don’t like structure because it’s normally associated with rigidity. However, this is far from the truth. When I started exercising at home, I did…

Not afraid of the rain 🌧

I had frequent asthma attacks growing up. They were triggered by things like dust, moisture, strong smells, fumes, drastic change in weather and being in the rain for only a few seconds. Some attacks were mild, others left me hospitalized or at home for a few days. In a bid to avoid asthma attacks, I…

Who is your boss

I attended a ‘Connecting Stories’ event today and the speaker Mrs. Ayeni shared a few lessons based on her life experiences. The one that stuck out to me was – God is your boss. She said she saw God as her boss all the time. It didn’t matter who her physical boss was – whether…

Speaking nicely to people

Speaking nicely to people is easy but then it doesn’t come easy to everyone I have observed that how people speak to others is based on how they were raised* It’s important to me and I am working on this with my children, as it’s best when they get it  while they are young If…

Mirror! Mirror!

I love watching my children play, listening to them talk… They are the best of friends most times, they have each other’s backs.

Be Present

Be present where you are Not because you can’t be somewhere else, but because you are here now It’s okay to want things, it’s okay to dream Be here now, be present, this is important It’s pointless being absent now while dreaming about being somewhere else Why? Because you lose out on the present Make…

Expectations! Expectations!

We all have expectations and we somehow expect others to know what we expect of them (and expect them to act accordingly). So you want something done a certain way and you have explained this to your spouse, colleague, subordinate, friend… but somehow you do not get the result you were expecting. You get frustrated…
