LIFE; A List Of All I've Learnt About It. (TTRWT)- By MARIAM

Life means different things to different people, but one thing is clear about life,it is the period between birth and death of a living thing,especially human being.
Life to me is facing reality,life is what happen while u are busy planning for another,reality walks hand in hand with life
Your life is your show,you write the script,edit it and act its scenes,you also happen to be the audience with the front row seat,since life never stops teaching,you won't stop learning,as I grow in age and experience,I have learnt few things about life

1.I have learnt to be myself as long as it makes sense to me

2. that life is not fair but it is good

3.that people are not as nice as they pretend to be

4. to have the courage to live,anyone can die at anytime

5.that true and loyal friends are worth their weight in Gold be Good at life,what goes around comes around

  2. Marian life has proving it self not to be imagine of @ times..

    Welldone mariam.

  8. Mariam I've learnt that people are soooooooooo friggin full of shit. People make me lose my faith in humanity. You help someone out of the goodness of your heart and they mistake your goodness and generousity for stupidity and treat you like a fool! Hmmm. There's is a God.
    Sorry, I really needed to vent...... You live and you learn.
    I'll probably come back and make a more appropriate comment.

    1. Hia. Thelma who upset you like this? Please share with us.

  11. Live is as it's been painted and more.Good thinking. The grace of God is sufficient for all who seek is how we see and live it. A thankful , ambitious and 'vainless' heart will enjoy it

  12. I. Have learnt. That men are born dogs,never faithful.99% of them

    I learnt to love my wife and kids

  14. I learnt that I can't have everything in the world so I appreciate the little I have

  15. Always put ur family at second place after God. They will always have ur back. Thanx #Mariam u did a gud job. My family rocks mehn! Dis is d bestest blog ever. Nice one #Thelma

  16. Everything is temporary. Nothing is permanent. Be positive. Live life and enjoy!!!

  17. Nice one mariam,life and. Its mysteries
    I will share what I. Have learnt in my own TTRWT$watch out

  18. I have learnt that I need COURAGE to be ME in a world where everyone is running an evolving campaign for me to be someone else!

  19. Marian thanks for writing this and T thanks for posting, I've just learned some new things about life. The most important thing I know about life is that nobody owes me shit, so I don't feel entitled to favors or assistance of any kind so whenever I receive I am utterly grateful to God for using whoever and to the person for allowing himself to be used by God.
    Another thing I learned is that God is not a selfish God and didn't intend for humans to be all about I and me all the time, we are supposed to be about our and us. To be our brother's keeper, to love our neighbors as we love ourselves, that's the only way this world would be a better place but selfishness and greed have crippled our psyche.
    I also learned that whatever you feel at a particular moment, whether it be joy or sadness is only fleeting and won't last forever.
    Sorry I can't go on cos I've learned to much and I'm still learning. No matter what experience you have in life, never let songs of praise depart from your heart. That's the only way to truly stay happy no matter what life throws your way. Stay blessed people

  20. That steele. Guy Is 101% right..learnt to always praise God in all.mariam,you try no be small o

  21. I ve learnt dat life is beautiful, aldo it has it ups and downs, it is sometin 2 be treasured. Ur life counts by d life u ve touched no mata ow minute d impact was. I ve learnt dat contentment with Godliness is great gain and also dat my anchor (God) holds me even in stormy situation

  22. Nice one+that first graphics got me.saved it already

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…
