A Blog Visitor Shares Her Amazing Story.


Yesterday I got a mail from one of our readers in responses to the post; This Life Isn't Exactly What My Heart Expected. I hope that this will inspire and encourage a lot of us. 



Told you sometime ago that you are my favorite writer... just finished reading your post on the reality of life. I can totally relate to it. I remember planning to graduate at 21, getting a job at a bank. Getting married at 23. Marrying my soul mate... etc. my reality hit me when I got pregnant at 15... having a baby, attempting sucide at 19.... loosing my mom who also happens to be my bestie, my twinie, my backbone, my helper, my everything at 21... as the first child, I instantly became the mother to my 4 siblings and my daughter. Still looking for admission at 21... eventually got into a school.. my dad married again when I was 22 to a woman that was not nice at all...issues were too much I developed high blood pressure. Eventually struggled to graduate at 25. Several severe heartbreaks in between. Hmmmmm, Thelma.. U can't imagine what I went through.  

   I don't wish to bore u with this. The whole point is to encourage you that when God will turn things around for u, it will seem that the blessings are too much for u sef. In my second semester final year. I met this guy and he told me he was going to marry me. We had our introduction the week before I left for nysc camp, got married a week before passing out.. he is my everything.  Life was looking good for me for the first time in my life. After wedding, it seemed the good stopped. Couldn't get pregnant, didn't have a job, my husband wasn't doing well... someone told me to go to Cele church. I made up my mind I wasn't going to go, instead I prayed and fasted in my home. I started getting business offers at first. I started aso ebi packaging. My husband's business picked up too. During one of my trips to balogun market , I started feeling dizzy, I took a test, I was pregnant. Everything was falling back together for me.

 As if that was not enough, I got a good job. I didn't apply, no test, no interview. My friend just asked if I wanted a job and pushed in my CV. A week after I got that job, I got another one. Now my problem( not really) is I'm one month pregnant and i have a new job. How do I code the pregnancy. That same month, my husband got a brand new car. Latest model. Also in that same month, I got an alert from my dad that made my bank put a restriction on my acct till I showed face. For the first time in my life... I had millions in my acct belonging to me. I can afford to take trips, invest. Take care of my siblings... All these things happened in a month. After all my suffer head for years, it took only a month for God.  

   My whole point is. You are a good person, you don't need to worry or cry anymore. Know that when God decides it's your turn, nothing can change it and I believe it's gonna be soon. You know what I say now? I say God has been sitting in a corner watching me cry, worry, run around and having high BP and he is saying to his angels " look at this girl I have big plans for running around instead of chilling and trusting in me.  "....  

Trust in God, keep being the good person u are, and don't forget to share with us when things turn around for u.
......
And so to every blog reader I say, keep trusting in God and remember to share your testimonies with us when they start rolling in. Thanks a lot T.A for sharing your story with us.

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!

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).
