Body Love

Do you look in the mirror and wish a certain part of your body wasn’t the way it was? Don’t you sometimes wish you could just tweak or delete one body part or feature? Your tummy, waist, bum, hips, boobs, stretch marks, excess skin, nose…? Not to worry, I am like this too. Wishing my…

Sometimes I am an Impostor

I recently attended the WimBiz Annual Conference and my favourite session was the Impostor Syndrome one. Why? It reminded me that I’m sometimes an impostor. Impostor syndrome refers to an internal experience of believing that you are not as competent as others perceive you to be. While this definition is usually narrowly applied to intelligence…

Spending time with the ladies

In 2018, one of my goals was to spend more time with my friends. Our relationships had become more Whatsapp based, maybe the occasional phone call to some and that was it. I decided to change that and introduced the ‘Ladies Hangout’ – quarterly meetups where we were just us. No roles or responsibilities, just…

Donโ€™t forget to be a child

As adults, it’s so easy to get carried away with ‘adulting’ that we forget to have fun. Last weekend, my sisters and I decided to take to be children again. We took the children to the playground and decided to join in the fun – two-legged race, egg and spoon race, sack race. It felt…

Some attacks were mild, others left me hospitalized or at home for a few days. In a bid to avoid asthma attacks, I…

Love your body

For me, thereโ€™s nothing like exercising outdoors. To breathe in fresh air, to enjoy the calmness, possibly some scenery … Mornings work best for me and so joining Coach Ojoiโ€™s bootcamp January last year was perfect. Started off as a 3month life coaches bootcamp which challenged us to exercise at least 5 days a week…

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…

Finding Me

As a child, my mother kept my hair in its natural state. My younger sister and I have soft curly hair and so our manes were easier to handle. We only got our hair completely straightened for special occasions. Mum will take us to this lady who stretched our hair with a hot comb and…

I am Woman
