8. Thelma Says...

It's the 3rd of August already guys. I was so preoccupied that I didn't wish us a happy new month. I was talking with one of us last night when I remembered a comment Clare made in response to my reluctance to pray about certain things ie marriage. She said pray so you don't have to pray and then she said some more. Tolulope Oyetunde also had some very insightful things to say, ironically they were practices which I engaged in in the past, but somehow forgot about and which I now know I should pick up again. 

That's not the first time I've heard this (pray so you don't have to 'pray') said but the first time as applied to that particular situation, and boy, did it make a lot of sense. It not only made sense but it made a huge difference. I read that comment, mulled over it, ruminated on it, chewed it and swallowed it and laughed because a post that was "overflogged" gave new insight, blessings and enlightenment. 
      Like Sasha commented, when you go to church you hear the same sermon several times. Yet you'll know by now that most times the message you receive each time is different. I may have written about the same thing a number of times but bless those people that still took the time to teach me and add value to my life. God bless you. Thank you Clare & Tolulope, ever since that day my prayer life has taken a new turn as I apply this to both being single and other aspects of my life as well. Thank you. 

I mean these days it seems like the top three things I pray about is 
1. Money. 
2. Money. 
3. Money. 

LOL. ok, that's certainly not true sha, but money is No. 2. *covers face*

Guys, it's the 8th month of the year. Let's talk about the things you need to achieve before the year ends and how you intend to go about achieving them. 

Whether you comment or not, I just want to remind us that it's not about talking the talk, we've got to have a plan! And just in case you don't feel like sharing so much, remember everyday here someone is looking to learn something, me particularly. So if you don't want to talk about your goals and plans, you can tell us how you met your targets or goals before the year ended or before the time you set came, in past years, please talk to us. I am all ears!

Before I wrap things up please I need to know who who and who's coming on Saturday. Please either let me know here or send me a text (08173600406), so that I can factor you into the arrangements and know how many mouths I should include for the 'chops'. Also you can bring a friend(s) along, the more the merrier. But like I said, it's 1k per individual and 25k for a group of 30 or less. Also remember that it would be nice if you can bring something along while coming, so that we can all have have a fun-filled and food-filled day. But if you can't, it's just fine, I'm sure we will all still have a great time either ways. Uyi was suggesting some fun things/games we can do/play on that day. If you've got ideas do share biko. I intend to have a fantastic time, since we didn't get to have that TTB party we were supposed to.

Have a beautiful day ahead guys, I might be MIA today o! Christmas is coming, I need to chase that paper. LOL.

  5. Where's the venue and time Thelma?

    1. 11am-4pm. Lekki Conservation Centre. It's in the Chevron axis, the bus stop immediately after Chevron roundabout (Tipper Garage). Looking forward to seeing you there.

  6. Go watch Gloria's video that was posted today on BN.

  7. I've want to start up my business before the year runs out but I don't know what to do cos everyone advices you to do what you're passionate about and I don't know what I'm passionate about. Want to enroll in culinary school but don't know of any in Abj. Abeg if anyone know any culinary school here abeg send me mail

  8. Would love to come but im in ph.oh well

  9. I'm going to be present o Thelms. Please what time, I'm suggesting 12noon to 3pm, so people coming from afar can make it early and also leave early.

    I'm coming with cupcakes.

  10. Yay I will be there .. Well after my baby's photoshoot..she turns one on Sunday so we doing a shoot on Saturday .. I need to know wat time the thingy is .. It will be nice for everyone to bring something to share with others .. Look forward to meeting u guys.. Xoxo

  11. I plan to drop a lot of my bad habits by the end of the year, and the way that I plan to do that is to cultivate nine good habits to suppress the bad. I won't be able to complete the nine by the end of the year because I just started on the first one this month, the plan is to consciously perform a habit for thirty days without breaking the chain, don't let one day pass that I don't act on it. After 30 days it should become part of me then I'll move on to the next habit... and so on.

  12. I'm coming oooo!!! What to bring now? Maybe some chin chin n juice n def a friend(s)

  13. Meanwhile, do we pay when we arrive there or?

  14. Thelma when you hit your first big cycle of money and hit your first valkey- money wont be such a thought. Money is that peaks and valleys and then you notice its just money.

    As for me I am grateful to be alive and just be able to experience grace around me. I am grateful i have enough to eat and can earn an incomr because I have good health and goodwill. Anxious about 1 thing before the year runs out and I know its from my lips to God's ears.

    These days when I pray i find it hard to ask Godfor certain things. I simple find myself saying- God thank you every morning and please order my steps. At night when i decide to pray and ask for things I want , by the time I have said God thank you, i fall asleep as soon as I start asking for the things which i think i want...a bit odd but oh well.


    Does it feel like your dream of having a wonderful relationship is beyond your grasp? Is the fear of having another failed relationship holding you back from even trying? When I'm having a difficult time moving forward, it's usually because underneath all my excuses, I'm afraid...

  16. Thelma, I'm coming and I'm bringing a friend.

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!

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.
