What Are You Here For?







It's a few minutes past 6am and traffic on Ozumba Mbadiwe (Victoria Island) is already building. This I noticed just after reading the story above. 
      I would really love to know what you took away from it. Does it make you wonder the point of it all? Does it remind you of the futility and vanity in life? Do you want to kick your shoes off and relax a little, after all where does the rat race end? Or did you get to the end of the story and yimu? LOL. Tell me.

*...when Jesus is your filter and you don't need no make up. LOL*

  5. Lmao! @Jesus is your only filter...

    On the post, I've always had that mentality for a while now but when some outside forces that have a place in your heart are just putting unnecessary pressure on you, you get stuck being. Apparently u still need enough strength to shrug off such unwanted noises as u move forward in happiness.

    @anon, isn't it apparent she's at Ozumba mbadiwe road? Or is there another place that looks like these pictures? Wait, and u think u have exceptional inspection skills? And are you her Dad? you better be, else you aren't entitled to an answer.

    1. Hi Anonymous. I don't use any cream out of the ordinary. I think my phone just takes good selfies thus the seemingly flawless skin.

  7. Good question above. Second question I am interested in Thelma, is were you participating in #nobraday? Lol.

    As for the post proper, for me it is a good reminder to never forget what truly matters in life - like family, friends and God.

  8. A beautiful story! I am one of those who don't believe in so much struggle to acquire material things. I'm quite a content with the little i have and i pray to God not to let any form of pressure drive me into acquiring things i do not need.

    ReplyDelete
  9. And that's the point people miss out in their "motivational speeches". There's so much pressure in being rich that we forget that riches is very relative. As long as u have all u need, everything else is just a luxury you don't have to kill urself over...

  12. The story reminded me of the story of one of my eldest brother's close friends. The guy wanted to build a school, thus he channeled all resources, every ounce of energy he had into making the dream a reality. It got so bad that he started sleeping in the school building while the construction was still ongoing as he could not afford to pay his house rent (his family stayed with relatives). The sad thing was he died few days to the opening of the school.

    "He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves wealth with his income; this also is vanity". Ecclesiastes 5:10
    "Then I considered all that my hands had done and the toil I had expended in doing it, and behold, all was vanity and a striving after wind, and there was nothing to be gained under the sun". Ecclesiastes 2:11

    "A man to whom God gives wealth, possessions, and honor, so that he lacks nothing of all that he desires, yet God does not give him power to enjoy them, but a stranger enjoys them. This is vanity; it is a grievous evil" Ecclesiastes 6:2. Money is a must-have but we should know when it is enough. Isn't it ironic that a lot of the things we acquire we do not really enjoy them?

  13. The truth is that the fast paced rat race life is mainly in lagos. In other places people relax and take it one day at a time. It's inly lagos that people wake up at 4am to start going to work because of traffic,

  15. but chill, isnt it the same people on this blog - well, majority - who were arguing that they'd rather marry a rich dude who they dont love than marry a poor man for love...or sth.
    So what are y'all preaching now, y'all should pick a side and play a position mehn.

  17. Well, I am all about having a genuinely happy life, and believe that it's not just about money. Happiness is having a good balance all round. Yet I think there's a difference in the lives of the 2 sects...though the end looks same.

    The rich men who retired can afford all that they need and some wants. He can afford to help others.
    The others can only sustain themselves.

  21. Too many people want to be rich because of the assumption that their lives will be better. Until one cultivates the habit of chasing peace of mind, no matter how much you acquire materially you will forever be seeking.

    As for Lagos many people can actually telecommute from their homes....but no everyone must be in the office. I do better with my resources working from home than i ever did commuting to an office...I dont have to invest in suits neither do I sit in traffic for hours on end...matter of fact i can count how many hours a week I am even on the road...the rat race is just that- a race with no real destination.

    1. That is the truth, much more can be done from home but I guess employers think you're not working if they don't see you in the office. Even if you're just staring at the screen and being unproductive.

    Or we are slaves to leisure and work is our penance. But, just the same, we can be slaves to service and our 'punishment' is blessing for the fact others are blessed. Or we might be bonded to telling the truth and so our 'penance' is peace.

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

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.
