Think About It...





I'm not sure the reason why but suddenly having a small waist and big hips gets you more notice, respect and admiration than the next person, whether they're smarter, more talented or more altruistic than you. 


This has led to people placing so much importance on their physical looks. And really, what about those who weren't created with those attributes? Haha! We're are a desperate generation, hungry for the wrong things. We always find a way! Your skin too dark, bleach it! Your booty not big enough, enhance it. 

I'm all for wanting to look your best but I only wonder if people pay as much attention to beautifying their insides as they do their outsides?  

We have 14yr olds now doing waist training because the media and even their mothers are giving off vibes that it's better to aspire to have a Kim K body than to have Okonjo Iweala achievements. 
      One of our well known "Lekki wives" left her three kids at home with the nanny and driver for weeks so she could take a trip abroad to get some enhancements done; facelift here, Botox there, niptuck here, implants there... So of course when her fourteen year old became anoxeric and recently loudly blurted out "Eeeeew, that woman is so fat and disgusting, that's so gross", I wasn't in any way surprised. Oh, and mummy encouraged her too; very disgusting dear, that's why you must never let yourself go. I honestly applaud parents who teach their children the benefits of healthy living from a young age, but seriously madam is that really the way to go? 
    Your kid almost got held back for poor grades yet what's more important is that she doesn't 'let herself go', so you ignore that your child is anoxeric and already has body issues at 14 as a result of low self esteem which both you and the media contributed to. But no, all that's OK as long as she's skinny. 

Does anyone care what goes on on the insides anymore, or is it just our outward appearance that matters?


 I'm in total support of working towards the best version of yourself you can be and if that means being healthier, trimmer or fitter then by all means, let's go for it. But how do we draw a line? How do we maintain focus on those things that truly matter? How do we let people know that mental health is just as important as physical health and having a low self-esteem can completely ruin a person...

  3. Hmm,i believe the orientation shld change. Instead of people doing body alternations either naturally or thru surgery for attention or whatever,they shld realize it shld be for themselves and esteem cos whether society likes it or not,this trend is gonna continue.

    EJ and Brendan both did medical procedures. EJ was gastric bypass and Brendan was hair transplant. They obviously did this for themselves but if a lady does medical procedures of boobs or butt implant,everyone begins to quote "love ur body the way u were created"

    My point? Do whatever floats ur boat...

  4. Surgical alterations of the body should be for a much needed health reasons-my opinion.

    The world has lost the real values; little wonder it is upside down.

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…

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!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
