Silly Negotiations With The Man Upstairs.

Me: We need to talk
Him:  ......

Me: Seriously. I've been putting it off, but now we really need to talk
Him: ........

Me: So you know I've been a very good girl right?
Him: ......

Me: Yes you know! I stopped partying, I stopped stopped being idle, I even stopped smoking
Him: .......

Me: Stay silent if you must, but you know. And you know that's not all, I gave up sex too
Him: .......

Me: Yes. Well, I wasn't exactly getting any so... But eventually I realized that you deserve that much
Him: ......

Me: But what's the point? I'm giving it all up and what do I get in return?
Him: .......

Me: See, I'm only human. You said it yourself; I'm not and can never be perfect before you. You said   it!
Him: .......

Me: I mean, seriously, let's talk. It's a bit too hard. I'm only human. I need something, I need to have   something. 
Him: .......

Me: You know what, I'm only human. I've given up sex so..... How about a little bit of porn, once a 
month maybe. And then I get to touch myself and...... I'm only human, body nor be wood. 
Him: .......

Me: Hmmm, why are you frowning, doing your nose like I'm smelling? Ok fine, I won't do that. But    come on..... I NEED  TO DO SOMETHING. 
Him: ........

Me: Fine. No wild parties, no sex, no porn, no masturbation, no cigarettes, no excessive alcohol, no  idle gossip or binge eating.....I might as well be dead you know? Life is for the living. I'm still living damn it! I'm not dead yet! 
Him: .......

Me: Ok, I'm sorry. I'm sorry I yelled at you, but you see, I've become frustrated. I'm mentally and psychologically constipated. Ok. I'll drop them all. Fine. But please, please. Just one thing, let me keep the cigarettes. Let me smoke. Please. It helps, it suppresses all my other urges. Once I have that I don't need anything else. A stick a day, that's all I ask!
Him: .......

Me: So what now. What am I to do? I have nothing. Besides I don't know how much longer I can stay   like this. What am I to do, I have nothing. I need something, I really need something......
Him: My GRACE is sufficient for you. 

Me: ......... Ok daddy. You're right. I believe you. I trust in you. I have faith in you. I'll hang in there. 
Him: .......


And the story continues. I'm far from perfect but I'll try to do the best I can. 


  1. You are honest. True, we all have inner battles. May God give us the grace to stand strong. #Enjay#

  2. Lol @ why are you doing your nose like I'm smelling. Please where do you find the time and energy to write so much? I'm intrigued.

  3. Our body being a Living SACRIFICE is about giving up our wants for his needs. It's not meant to be easy that's why it's a sacrifice! Daily I'm striving to be more like him. God help us all

  4. Hmmm... Nice write up. Inner battles we fight on daily basis...... Love your blog already.


  5. Aww first time commenting here...I loove your honesty and this sounds exactly like a convo with God. The last part "My grace is sufficient for you had me in tears. It truly is. Just turn in your desires to him one day at a time. One thing I learned in my single days is how to channel my desires. When those periods or moments of heat/passion come, I do a few things: go for a long jog and take a cold shower, spend some time in serious praise and worship to God, turn off my phone after 7 or 8pm so no toasters can reach (I generally avoid the opp sex like a plague during this time), do something I'm passionate about (in your case that will be writing). Before you know it, the desires reduce and I'm back to normal until the next dry

  6. Nwando it seems our conversations sound exactly alike.( Altho mine seems to include " this cold is too much and i need a blanket with the "body no be wood" part and i beg for more than a stick per day sometimes) Brought a smile to my face. Especially since coming online and getting to read your blog is one way to take my mind of "mpu na ajo ife" and on to better and more positive thots. Thanks for being a source of His grace for me. xoxo Ziggy.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
