The World Is Going Crazy And Everyone Is Going Crazy With It!

The picture that sparked a thousand arguments in my head. 

......
I blinked and wrong was the new right. Right was the new wrong. 
......
I blinked and men married men and had cute little children. 


.........
I blinked and Miley Cyrus' twerking became legendary, and after the shock, the world loved her even more for it, and little girls all around the world wanted to be just like her. 

.......
I blinked and everyone was nude. Everywhere. Everyone was naked. 
Music videos, naked. 
Promo pictures, naked. 
Social network, naked. 
Naked is the new normal. 

Remind me again, he's an Amdassador for something, right?...... Something to do with Youth and peace.... Seen!

.......

I blinked and Beyoncé strutting half naked on stage was cool. Her toddler singing surfboard while mummy danced around bare-arsed on stage was even cooler. 

..........

I blinked and Nigeria granted entrance to an Islam extremist as she "condemned" Boko Haram for shedding the blood of her own people.



.........

I blinked and saw a novel hybrid with big breasts and big penises called trans-something or the other. 
.......
I blinked and 15 was the new 30. 15's had social media accounts, multiple sex partners and a right to both. 
.......
I blinked and marriage had become outdated and the phrase "born out of wedlock" had become extinct. Marriage; an irrelevant inconvenience that could easily be dispensed with. 
........

I blinked and my skin was snow white, as was everyone else's.

.......
I blinked and it was a "brave new world". 
........
I am me ; tolerant, accepting, non-judgemental, accommodating, loving. 
I am me but when I stop to think; this is the world my children will be born into, I stop to think.

  1. Thank you Thelma. That last sentence really caught me.

    Don't Judge, mind your own business, live and let live. But don't be alarmed when your daughters become Miley Cyruses at 12 years or even less, or your sons start having romantic ideas with their male "friends". Food for thought...*if you like, don't think*. LOL

  5. I remember someone telling me how scared her hubby was to have another child. He told her it was hard bringing up children, but worse still, in these times. So many things happening. God help us all.#Enjay#

  7. The rise of the Internet, the best and worst thing that happened to this world... The rise of private universities the worst thing that happened to the Nigerian youth.
    We have eyes but cannot see, the devil has so blinded the world that these days people worry more about getting rich, how many followers they have on instagram than the state of their souls. It's sad to see but it's obvious that the end is near. It's a personal race, don't let what's happening around affect you. Let's prepare ourselves to meet our Maker.

  8. MY RANT...

    Why are some guys so useless?..or is it the banker guys that are soo useless??? I went to my fiancee' office yesterday cos he wanted me ti stop by. One girl came in and d way she acted with him smelt over-familiarity. Another came in and she claimed said she knew from somewhere. I felt it was from my television program so we exchanged pins and I found out she's on my Davids contact list. Cutting my rant short, must he really exchange pin and numbers with every girl he meets in d bank even when they chase him???? I don tire. I talked about it and he poured the whole thing on me yesternite. We slept on two ends of the earth. He left home early and did not talk to me. God knows I put my happiness first.

  11. This post just got me staring at my office desk for minutes, thinking!!! Thelma, I Ruth will STOP and THINK then ACT! As much as i'll certainly have a kid or 2 in this debased world, God willing, I plan to bring them up with and in the fear of God. I don't care if the world is modern, my family will find a balance btw traditional and modern with the bibles laws and principles as our foundation... the world can go crazy, but by God, my family must keep their sanity! #thats Y I need a Highly God fearing hubby/baby daddy. *back to thinking...

  12. For the many of us who still hold on to traditional beliefs, let's keep going with that.
    I have three kids by God's grace (in my early 30's) and I still teach them God's ways to the best of my ability. Thankfully, they have a father who holds on to Godly-beliefs as well. I have had to chastise them reading from the book of Proverbs many times.
    Yes, the world is crazy but NO, I don't necessarily have to swim with the crazy tides.

    1. Awww. F I so envy you your three kids (in your early 30s). I told a friend last week that my womb is feeling empty and she laughed at me. But seriously when I see young women (20s-early 30s) with 2/3 kids I get so jealous of you guys. Growing with your kids is such a beautiful thing. May God bless you and yours.

    2. Thelma's womb is blessed by Almighty GOD. Thelma will be a joyful and celebrated Mum. Her children are joyfully waiting to be birthed. Be happy dear, you are at the threshold. God bless you.

    3. Dear Thelma, thank you for your kind comments. However, everything has its price but I must confess I have been kinda 'graced' (I have a Masters but I've not been able to complete my professional exams - still 'struggling' with that - lol)

      I need you to know that in a lot of ways you are blessed. If you think deeply, you would count your blessings - a lot of ladies are aiming to be like you! Don't worry, your time - God's time for you shall never pass you by and you shall have a model marriage/family by HIS Grace.

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…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

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
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

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.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

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…

One More Post...

Shhhhhhh....

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!
