The Pre-Work Beach Stopover.





The sea breeze on the skin of my face

Transports me to a different time and place

With dreams and possibilities that my arms open to embrace 

With laughter and love that's never displaced

Contentment and peace, which history can never be traced

Head held to the sky, shoulders high, utterly divine grace!

Where is this place and who is this woman

No care in the world, no burden in her heart, no baggage dragging at her ankles

In her eyes I see a thousand stories

They've been heavy with tears, there's been hurt, there've been battles, they've been gory

But look further still and you can see great strength and even greater glory

They look on in awe yet they could never tell 

that time and again life tried to knock her down, but she never fell

It seemed she carried with her some socerer's potent spell

Which she poured on a wand and turned to Heaven every little hell.

Her laugh rings loud and pure, clear as a bell and it's wakes me from my reverie

I see the people around look at me, brows raised questioningly

What do they want, why do they stare so unabashedly?

I wonder, and Aha, I see it, that woman with the laugh; loud and pure, that woman is me!

He came to pick me up for work early and suggested we make a stop at the beach, I obliged. It's been  a while since I stood close to the water and felt the salty breeze on my face. It was a beautiful moment. Really makes one muse... 



I really should have taken off my shoes, but my mind was already in work mode. LOL. 


Good night guys. I should start heading home now, I thank God for a beautiful day. How did yours go?

  1. Oh, My Day was great. Still going great.
    I was home alone all day. A lil depressed due to over thinking. At 5pm, I felt this nagging need to go out & have a lil fun.

    So, I went to a Restaurant & bought Catfish, Veggie rice, Afang soup, drinks & visited this cozy hotel a lil far from my house, lodged in. With all my gadgets.
    Invited my ONLY Sis over for some sister bonding! Yipeeeeeeee! *Tongue out to Sunshine & Kabuoy*
    Leaving at noon tomorrow!
    I'm determined to Make Beautiful memories despite my troubling issues.....

    Got news that should have made me really angry, but i just brushed it off. God is at work in my life. My business registration got set back by a whole year.

    Also picked up a nice bag for my mom for her birthday in 2 weeks. Glad to be finally leaving London and heading to Lagos. My housekeeper sent me a text, maybe she thinks i left permanently. Lol. I guess 2.5 months is a long time.

    Setting up meetings and hoping to bag some good freelance work when i land in a few days. I neeed that paper. More excited to sit and gossip with my mom, havent seen her since January ending.

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.

#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....!

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.
