Before We Say Goodbye To 2014...





It's just some hours away from 2015 and I most certainly cannot allow this year to end without asking you; how was your 2014?


I know I ask a lot of questions (LOL), some times I don't expect answers, some times I ask because I think you might want to share or get it off your chest, right now I'm asking because I really care to know. Let's talk about YOUR 2014. What were the highs and lows? What lessons did you learn? What blessings did you get? What did you lose? Are you going into 2015 with the person whom you started 2014 with, if you're not then tell us what happened... What did you achieve? What surprises did you get? Did you accomplish all you set out to when the year began? And most importantly did 2014 go just as you hade hoped, or even better? I sincerely want to know what 2014 was like for you. 

I'd share mine with you but I've pretty much done that all year long. Suffice it to say that I'm grateful for my family, life and good health, but when I started the year with "2014 would be my year!", It didn't quite pan out that way (and no, I'm not talking about marriage. LOL). Still I forge ahead. 


This is what Waje had to say about her 2014. She shared this on Instagram several days ago. :
"At the end of 2013 I was in a very dark place, toxic relationship, wanted to quit music and was worried about my weight, health issues and actually believed everyone around me was balling except me lol, but This year!!! I’ve grown a very thick skin, so things that will usually hurt are now refreshment when my friends and I are gisting lol (bad belle is allowed), my daughter graduated, moved into a bigger house with everything I want in it, I invested more in business and God gave me more, can afford to take care of my parents, I no longer give excuses for my failures, I just get up and ask the Holy Spirit to help, discernment is my best friend and even when it’s far from me I retrace my steps. I’m more mature, not quick to anger like I was in the past and my year is ending in the most beautiful way, My whole family is here with me. I ve you guys. There’s so much to be thankful for. 2015 will be a better year, I know this cos I know my father, he loves me enough to ensure that my testimonies never end. What’s your testimony?"

Aha! What is your testimony?

    4. 2014: Well, got over my suicidal nature COMPLETELY. Learnt to appreciate Life more. Be more prayerful, less desperate, less shy (lol), more sociable, gained more weight (71kg in 2013, 85/86kg in 2014), made new friends (including those here), been happier despite many setbacks.

      Thank GOD for EVERYTHING. I'm most hopeful for 2015.

  2. 2014 has been a year of ups and downs and no, I didn't achieve all I set out to.In the same vein, my most vital expectations have not been met but I still believe. However, I've had some sweet surprises and I had the opportunity to prove to my mother that I'm a worthy daughter (lol). The joy she had was priceless and I'm super grateful that I was there for her at a moment she'd feared for long (years before it came).

    I'm more patient with God now....seriously, I'm learning faith and patience through some people who can't even imagine how much they positively impact my life. All in all, I'm an improved person compared with who I was this time last year but there is still a lot more rooms for improvement.

  4. Started 2014 full of very high hopes. Took time off my job (job was out of town) in 2013 to be a full time mum. Wasn't exactly appreciated by the hubby. He tried his best to frustrate me in all manner of ways, financially, emotionally..... Almost relegated me to the background and said so many unprintables things that almost made me question my sanity, mind. Almost turned me into a bitter person. Ha, bros!!!! No be so we talk am o.
    But I've had the most fun with my kids. It's so wonderful spending quality time with them. Wish it could last forever, but alas, I have to borrow myself brain.
    I also lost a very close friend too.
    I'm happy 2014 is ending though, new beginnings beckon.
    Looking forward to returning to work in the new year. Looking forward to greater joy and maybe a reminder of what my marriage was b4 we agreed to take this decision.
    And to all TTBV, as the curtains fall on 2014, may 2015 bring much more joy, hold much more promise to enable us achieve much more in Jesus name. Amen.

    More tolerant with people.
    Get out of toxic relationships or Friendships without a second thought.
    Stopped worrying about things I have no control over.
    I QUIT sharing my private/personal stuff on social media.

  7. Thelma 2014 was a horrible horrible year. Testimony? I have none. Yes I know I'm alive but sometimes it's like there's no point. Promise and fail, disappointment, abortions for the idiot that promised to marry me, unemployment... 2014 was rubbish please.

  11. 2014 was a journey of self discovery for me. Gratitude is pouring from my soul to God for this journey that I was never willing to embark on but found myself on it anyways and I later came to appreciate every moment of it. I've cried (silently), felt desolate, hurt, felt empty, smiled, been happy, achieved inner peace, grown, sought the Holy Spirit afresh, matured, fell in love with myself, and many others I can't list here but above all, have a good personal relationship with God. All in 2014, so I will say, It was a year that left a print in my life.

    1. You said it better than I could have ever phrased it. It was indeed a year of self-discovery for me, I became aware of so many of God's promises I was missing out on. I have learned to let go of the mistakes I made, they happened to make me wise. Like you, I have cried, felt desolate, felt empty but I have come to find a greater love in God and His comforting spirit. Now I find it easier to crack jokes with Him, engage in conversations like I was talking to someone physically. I am in love with myself too. I have good people around me who truly care and wish me well. It was a good year I can't deny, a real turning point on how I view myself and life.

  12. My year has been splendid, though I had few ups and downs but am grateful to God, he has been faithful unfortunately, my year is ending on a sad note,got disappointed by something I had been looking forward to and I couldn't sleep,I cried all through the night cos I rarely have control over MY emotions, though I blame myself cos I caused it all with my nonchalant attitude. But in all am grateful, am.elated,am.thankful cos am alive,am better than where I was in 2013, few of my friends got married and it's been splendid so far. Am thankful for health, life,peace and above all the love of God over me. I hope 2015 brings something better and I hope to go steps further from where I am today.

  13. 2014 has been a great year. God is faithful indeed. I'm definitely in a better place than the previous year. I thank you lord. There are some things i'm still looking up to God for but knowing he is a faithful God they will all happen in 2015. In all I have a lot to be thankful for in 2014. J

Lol), I was taken to a Military Hospital and the Military nurse was so shocked he had to call a doctor before I was eventually stitched. Wat cos'd it?

  19. Got the best christmas present (a job) and I start in the new year!!! i'm so grateful and excited.
    Being a graduate (ceremony was in july) and seeing my mates start life i.e moving, getting new jobs immediately after school and me being stagnant made me so depressed (being way underemployed first few months of the year, low self esteem, then unemployed, then broke). I think this is the only year I cried every month. worrying and sometimes swiftly thinking about suicide. It's been a tough year but God came through (I guess i just had to be patient).
    2015 will be a great year, this job has made me closer to God in a way (by reading the bible and understanding) and will open more doors for me and give me a clearer vision on things.

  20. 2014? Oh what a year!

    Played ludo with the devil in 2014 and won! It came at a price, but like Job, God wouldn't let me lose my life. I am still standing to fulfill my destiny.

    Was going to write the year off but my spirit reminded me that 2014 has been my best year ever, will be an ingrate to forget all the positive experiences I had. It is the year I have made the most impact on those around me, and has set the foundation for 2015. I feel excited already!

    I am thankful for the grace, mercy and favor shown to me by baba God in 2014.

    Adieu 2014, bienvenue 2015..

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!
