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.

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…

The journey to a fitter, better me

We have all heard the phrase ‘health is wealth’ thrown around. I however often wonder if we really understand what it means. Health simply refers to fitness of the mind, soul and body. If the mind is unwell, then one is unhealthy. Last year, I joined a fitfam fellowship group (YES, fitfam fellowship). Not because I was obese,…

Purpose

I am currently reading the book of Proverbs which is all about wisdom. The thing that calls out to me as I read this book is purpose. One who lacks wisdom cannot have purpose and without purpose, what is the point of one’s life? Proverbs 10: 4-5 reminded me of what I had been tasked…
